Solar Eclipse 2021 Is Bringing Major Changes: Here’s What You Need to Know

Published

Solar Eclipse Image

The first Solar Eclipse of the year comes to us on June 10th, 2021 in the form of the new moon. New moon eclipses are known for bringing sudden new beginnings and unexpected news. This annular solar eclipse also puts on a rare and dazzling show in the eastern sky, as the sun will form a glowing “ring of fire” around the moon. This powerful lunar reset is heralding some major changes and opportunities in our lives.

In this article, I will share with you what to expect from the first Solar eclipse 2021 and what you can do to soften its effect on your life.

Solar Eclipse 2021

Solar eclipse 2021 will be visible from parts of northeast Canada, Greenland, the Arctic ocean (passing over the North Pole), and the Russian Far East. The partial eclipse will appear from a region thousands of kilometers wide, which includes northern and eastern North America, most of Europe, and northern Asia.

Eclipsing is expected to begin at about 5:24 am EST when the Moon passes in front of the Sun’s glowing face. The moment of greatest coverage will peak at about 5:32 am EST.

Unlike a total eclipse, the Moon will only blot out the central portion of the Sun, leaving a fiery halo lighting up its edges.

The whole affair is expected to last more than an hour and it will wrap up by 6:30 am EST.

How Will the Solar Eclipse Affect Us?

Rahu and Ketu Astrological events in September Image

According to Vedic astrology, a Solar eclipse always occurs at the new moon, when the lunar node of Rahu (or Ketu) is located close to the Sun (up to 12 degrees). Thus, when a Solar eclipse occurs, Rahu passes between the Sun and the Moon. It is because of the influence of Rahu that Vedic astrologers do not recommend looking at the Solar eclipse. The fact is that Rahu, mixing with the energy of the Sun, affects our subconscious and imprints negative thoughtforms in it, under the influence of which we may unconsciously become involved in a chain of adverse events.

In addition, it is important to know that at the moment of the eclipse, our thoughts and desires are tracked. The most negative of our thoughts and the most selfish of our desires are transmitted to the cosmos and very quickly grasped by Rahu. Thus, in the future, these thoughts and desires will be materialized, and we will bear karmic responsibility for this. Therefore, at the moment of the eclipse, it is important to keep track of our thoughts, desires, and actions. It is best to focus on spiritual practices, reading sacred texts, chanting mantras, and praying.

The part of the Earth where the eclipse is visible falls under the influence of Rahu. This means that in these territories, unfavorable events may occur and the karmic lessons that Rahu brings will be activated.

The Sun represents the vital energy – prana. It controls immunity, intelligence, activity, and digestion. In physiology, the Sun represents the structure of the thalamus and the nucleus of each cell.

During an eclipse, Rahu overrides all the benevolent qualities of the Sun. Therefore, during the eclipse (as well as a few days before and after the eclipse), people may experience a decline in strength, poor health, bad digestion, and problems with the cardiovascular system. Rahu tends to obscure consciousness, so people can find themselves in mental states that are not typical for them: there may be more stress, distraction, unfounded experiences, anxiety, negative thoughts, and conflicts.

During the Solar eclipse (as well as a few days before and after the eclipse), the key characteristics of the Sun will suffer: self-confidence, identity, self-expression, leadership, personal strength. Many people will feel doubts about their own value and the significance of their efforts, frustration, and dissatisfaction. Others, on the contrary, may feel the overactivity of their ego and will have a tendency to overestimate their capabilities.

The sun represents human vitality, health, joy, and optimism. Therefore, during the eclipse, you may feel weak and discouraged, digestive problems may arise. In order to minimize the negative impact of the eclipse, it is best to avoid things that consume a lot of energy. Try to spend this day in solitude, away from crowded places.

The nakshatra of the eclipse is Mrigashira. Mrigashira nakshatra is associated with movement and search. This nakshatra will tempt us to choose a new direction and abandon old goals. Try not to get involved in such thoughts and doubts. The eclipse in Mrigashira nakshatra can create obstacles and difficulties in movement, so it is better to refrain from traveling for 10 days before and after the eclipse.

Dos For This Eclipse

#1: Fasting

Vedic astrologers suggest to fast at least 12 hours before the Solar eclipse. There is an exception for people with health problems, elderly people, and kids – these categories of people may not fast but should at least refrain from food during the exact eclipse time.

The period of 12 hours before the solar eclipse is considered an inauspicious time before the eclipse. Therefore, refraining from eating anything during this time is considered to be beneficial.

#2: Charity

Any charity and donations during the eclipse time are considered to be auspicious and help to purify your karma.

#3: Bath

Taking a bath / a shower during the eclipse helps to cleanse your aura and get rid of any negative energy accumulated in your energy bodies.

#4: Yoga & Meditation

Practicing yoga or/and meditation during the eclipse period will help you to develop mental strength and soften the influence of the negative effect of the eclipse.

#5: Mantra

Mantra for Solar Eclipse:

OM
Bhaskaraya Vidmahe
Mahadyutikaraya Dhimahi
Tanno Adityah Pracodayat

OM
Asvadhvajaya Vidmahe
Padmahastaya dhimahi

After the eclipse, it is advisable to take a shower or bath, or at least rinse your hands and wash your face. Be careful with your desires during the eclipse period. During this period, any spontaneous actions can create problems. Maintain your awareness and try to keep your focus on spirituality during the eclipse.

Mercury Retrograde In Libra: How Will It Affect Us?

Published

Mercury Retrograde In Libra Image

This fall’s Mercury retrograde happens from September 27th to October 18th. In this article, I will share with you some important information about this period and some tips on how to make Mercury retrograde in Libra a harmonious and peaceful time for you.

What Is Mercury Retrograde?

Retrograde is a special type of movement of the planet, when from the Earth it seems to us that it’s going backward, although the planet simply changes direction relative to the Sun. All planets periodically become retrograde. For some, it happens every few months or every few years. But Mercury is usually the record holder in this “marathon”: a retrograde period occurs on average 3-4 times a year.

Mercury is the only planet whose retrograde effect is felt by most people on Earth. It is believed that during the retrograde period, Mercury has a detrimental effect on people, but if you properly use the energy of this period, you can benefit from it.

Mercury is the planet of contacts, contracts, information, intellectual activity, communication, and commerce. It is associated with travel and transport, negotiations, training, and signing documents. Mercury is responsible for memory, speech, oratory, logic, and intelligence. Therefore, its retrograde movement may negatively affect all the above.

You may feel this retrograde period in different ways, here are some of its effects:

  • exposed secrets;
  • arisen scandals;
  • frequent anxiety;
  • gatherings are prone to turning into gossiping;
  • restlessness;
  • misunderstandings within relationships;
  • delays;
  • obstacles;
  • mistakes, etc.

Mercury Retrograde In Libra

zodiac signs image

Mercury goes retrograde in the lunar mansion of Chitra nakshatra from September 27th, starting in the sign of Libra and then back into Virgo by October 2nd, before turning direct on October 18th.

Chitra nakshatra is the Mars-ruled nakshatra that is also known as “the star of opportunity”. This nakshatra is marked by the bright star Spica, venerated throughout many ancient world cultures. Its luminance earned it the title ‘stunning pearl’ – suspended in heaven. Like the hidden wealth of gemstone, Chitra is adept at revealing hidden beauty, coaxing the dull and ordinary into revealing their splendor. Like a pearl, its shell must be opened to reveal its beauty. Therefore, Chitra is said to rule over all acts of transformation and to reflect the world of Maya and delusions, which must be overcome. Chitra is one of the most mystical nakshatras of all, giving spiritual depth with sudden flashes of insight.

Those working on creative ideas (especially related to writing or arts) are going to be supported by the energy of Chitra nakshatra. A small message may turn into a fully-formed article or even a book. Studying a new subject may lead you all the way into a new specialty. Chitra nakshatra will give you discipline and original thought in your research and will give you the inspiration to re-think and edit your writing and get it all down in a smooth and presentable form. This nakshatra encourages us to think bigger and bolder and find new ways to make the world a more beautiful place.

As it reverses back into Virgo, Mercury joins dynamic Mars and gives you an assertive voice in the debate, along with the ability to campaign. This coming-together peaks on October 10th, in Hasta nakshatra.

Hasta nakshatra is the Moon-ruled nakshatra that is symbolized by an open hand. This nakshatra brings business success and charm, but an eventual fall from favor. Hasta nakshatra gives people a strong desire to coerce, heal, and trick. It also increases the mercantile qualities of people. Under the influence of this nakshatra, people will experience highs and lows, like every day there is a new challenge, and every turn of the page brings something new and unexpected. However, Hasta nakshatra also gives people a highly adaptive nature and an opportunity to turn a potential setback into an opportunity, reaping benefits from the most unlikely places.

Though you may be under pressure to give an answer or make a decision, keep your patience and wait for the right time to do it. Don’t make any important decisions during this time, especially related to finances and health. Wait until this period pass and you can see more clearly what people’s agenda is.

Don’t be afraid to defer judgment, even if an offer appears too good to miss. You see, details usually emerge after the end of a retrograde period that you couldn’t possibly have known at the outset.

Mercury also receives the influence of expansive Jupiter after October 2nd. At this point, your thinking takes on a broader and more optimistic tone which will help you to express even an uncomfortable truth in a positive way.

As you can see, this is a pretty positive retrograde because Mercury feels good in Libra. Then it goes in Virgo where it’s exalted.

This Mercury retrograde is good for listening, reflecting, repairing relationships, solving past problems with miscommunication, reaching out to others, and reconnecting.

The Dos During Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde 2021 Image

So, in the period of Mercury retrograde in Libra, the following actions will be favorable:-

#1: Finish things

If you want something new to happen in your life, make room for it, finish things before moving forward. Think about how many things you need to finish, delegate, or get rid of before you can move on and bring new relationships, abundance, and wealth into your life. This period is perfect for finishing old relationships, getting rid of toxic people, sorting out your feelings and emotions. You can also quit your old job.

#2: Deal with unfinished and running projects and documents

You can finish the article, or finish the book you’re working on. It is good to restore order, throw away all unnecessary papers, archives, and media.

#3: Meet with friends

This is a good time to meet with friends and family members you haven’t seen in a long time. If you had some miscommunication problems in the past, it’s time to solve them. Reaching out and reconnecting with people you haven’t been talking to for a while is very beneficial during this time.

#4: Analyze your mental attitudes

Pay attention to how your thoughts and attitude shape your reality. Think about – what thoughts you can let go of to improve your life? Are there any mental programs, blocks, or stereotypes that prevent you from reaching your goals? Well, now it’s the perfect time to let them go.

#5: Engage in spiritual practice

This is the time when we all need to focus more on our spiritual journey. Meditate, purify and calm your mind, chant mantras, pray and work with positive affirmations.

The Don’ts During Mercury Retrograde

During periods of retrograde, all Mercurian affairs develop slowly, there is often confusion, the risk of mistakes increases. New projects are slowed down, transport, and mail services are disrupted. It is more difficult to study and engage in intellectual work, to conduct negotiations. During such periods, equipment breaks down more often, and communication operators have problems with their work. Therefore, take note of what is still better not to do in this period to avoid trouble:-

#1: Making purchases

Especially it is better not to make any big purchases, because later you may be disappointed. For example, you may find hidden defects in the things you buy.

#2: Signing contracts, making transactions, opening a business, and starting a project

During Mercury retrograde, there is a very high probability of making mistakes. Therefore, it’s not recommended to sign contracts, make transactions, open a business, or start a new project during this period.

#3: Getting a new job

Those getting new jobs during the retrograde period are usually disappointed with their jobs later. You may not be satisfied with the conditions, some additional information may open some disadvantages or difficulties the job has, etc.

#4: Making important decisions

Later you most likely will regret such decisions. They may bring you more trouble than satisfaction.

#5: Starting a training or course

If you start a training or take a course during the retrograde period, the study may appear to be more difficult than you expected or the knowledge gained may not be useful.

#6: Making big purchases

Anything you buy during Mercury retrograde has a chance to disappoint you in some way. Don’t buy real estate, cars, or anything that requires big money being paid. Most likely, such purchases will not be useful, or will be unnecessary in the future, or will break down.

#7: Borrowing money

If you borrow money during Mercury retrograde, it may be difficult to pay this money back.

#8: Starting a new relationship

Relationships started during the retrograde period will not be long-lasting and will not become serious.

#9: Moving, buying real estate, signing the rent

Any operations with real estate will face delays and obstacles. Therefore, it’s better to postpone moving, buying real estate, or signing the rent.

Spiritual Practices

Here are some spiritual tools that will help you make this Mercury retrograde in Libra a good period for you.

#1: Mercury Mantra

To neutralize the negative influence of Mercury retrograde on your life, chant the Mercury mantra 108 times daily:

Om Namo Bhagvate Vasudevaya Namah

Chanting this powerful mantra gives:

  • invincible self-confidence;
  • astonishing concentration power;
  • laudable intelligence;
  • commendable communication;
  • business skills;
  • calmness and peace;
  • wisdom;
  • knowledge;
  • enlightenment.

#2: Gemstones

To pacify the effect of Mercury retrograde, you can wear gemstones throughout this period.

Emerald is Mercury’s primary gem! It is the closest in representing Mercury through its crystalline structure that helps distribute Mercury’s cosmic rays that the planet emanates. Wearing emerald can help balance the influence of the planet and re-establish balance and harmony in your energetic field and mitigate difficulties cause by the retrograde period.

Jade can be used as a valid substitute for an emerald when working with Mercury gems.

Peridot can be used to strengthen relationships and connections. This stone pacifies retrograde Mercury and balances your life. It can be worn for health in general and to increase wealth and happiness in life.

Aventurine is connected to Mercury and is known as a lucky stone. It is great for overall health and well-being. Aventurine can be used to regulate pitta dosha in Ayurveda and is connected to Anahata Chakra.

#3: Yantra

Mercury Yantra (also called Buddha Yantra) helps to decrease the negative impacts of Mercury. This yantra also:

  • helps to boost intellect;
  • improves studying abilities;
  • helps in personal development;
  • improves memory;
  • helps to develop oratory and communicative abilities;
  • attracts success;
  • improves the financial situation, etc.

Display the Buddha Yantra in the North sector of your house and chant the Mercury mantra 108 times while looking in the center of the Yantra. Perform this practice daily or, at least, every Wednesday.

Mercury Yantra Image

The Bottom Line

Mercury retrograde in Libra is part of the natural cycle intended to be a time of reflecting and re-doing things that need our attention. This is the time to slow down, reflect, and listen to our voice within. In our fast-paced world, it can feel like a punishment but, truthfully, it can be a blessing. Mercury retrograde offers us a beautiful opportunity to tidy up, chill out, and get crystal clear on exactly what we need to do to further align with our highest purpose.

6 Rituals To Celebrate September Equinox 2021

Published

on

September Equinox 2021 Image

The September equinox 2021 will take place on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 3:21 p.m. ET. For the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the beginning of shorter days and colder weather. Fall is the time of year when we set up our internal space and make room for the new to come.

In this article, we will share with you what to expect from September equinox 2021 and what practices and rituals you can perform for aligning yourself with the powerful energy of the fall!

September Equinox 2021

The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature. The four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Fall Equinox are illuminated stages of an inner spiritual journey – a spiritual cycle that we take within ourselves.

The word equinox comes from the Latin word aequus, which means “equal,” and nox, which translates as “night”. The Fall Equinox is a meaningful time of year to honor the harvest. Whether that be a “real” harvest of the things planted in your garden or the harvest of efforts and intentions for your life path that you had set earlier in the year.

On the September equinox, we honor the light and the dark and express our gratitude for the changes that come with the passing of time. The Fall equinox is believed to be a magical time, where harmony fell on the planet and where we could embody an equal balance of dark and light. Just like a yin and yang symbol, we can’t have one without the other. We need darkness to see the light and we need the light to recognize the darkness. Therefore, the September equinox is all about honoring both of these qualities that live within each of us – our inner shadow and our divine light.

Fall Equinox 2021 rituals image

This is the time to acknowledge growth and expansion as a natural evolution of being. During the fall season, our lives go through cycles of growth, harvest, death, and rebirth just as we see in nature.

On the September Equinox, we should remember to honor all that we have in our lives and shift our consciousness from one of lack to one of prosperity and gratitude. Rituals and special practices can help us to do it in the most powerful way.

Practices & Rituals For September Equinox 2021

#1: Sunrise and sunset watching

Sunrise and sunset on the equinox are the key energy points. By watching them on the equinox, you’re aligning yourself to the natural cycles and cosmic rhythms.

At sunrise, go outside and turn to the east. Stand for a few minutes, welcoming the beginning of a new day and a new cycle of your life.

At sunset, turn to the west, watching the sun going behind the horizon. When watching the sunset, focus on gratitude for everything you have in your life and for letting go of everything that doesn’t serve you anymore.

#2: Reflecting on the blessings

gratitude journal practice image

The September Equinox is the time of the final harvest. When people lived more closely connected to the Earth and grew all their food, this was the time of year they’d celebrate the summer’s abundance. This is the time when we should reflect on the abundance in our lives. Take a moment and make some notes in your gratitude journal. What abundance did you experience this year? What blessings have you received? What are you grateful for?

Use gratitude affirmations to express your appreciation for everything you have in your life.

#3: Letting go practice

To experience new growth, we need to let go of our old leaves – old patterns and habits that no longer serve us. What are you ready to let go of? What do you need to shed in order to grow?

Use the practice of Karmic Relationship Healing to let your past go.

#4: Energy Cleansing Ritual

what is a spiritual bath image

September equinox is a perfect time for cleansing your energy from any negativity accumulated in your field. This simple yet powerful energy cleansing bath ritual will help you to do this.

Before you fill the bathtub with hot water, light scented candles (or ordinary candles), dim the lighting. Set up your intention to purify your energyclear your aura, etc.

  1. Fill the tub with warm water.
  2. Be sure to add sea salt, because it takes away all the negativity.
  3. Turn on meditative music for relaxation. These can be the sounds of nature, spiritual chants, mantras, etc.
  4. Get in the bathtub.
  5. While laying in the bathtub, visualize that water and salt take away all your problems. And every minute your body becomes lighter and lighter.
  6. When you feel that you have spent enough time in the bath, drain the water. When draining the water, imagine that all the bad things go away with it.
  7. After performing the ritual, you will feel a true renewal at the level of body and soul. You can climb under a warm blanket with a cup of your favorite herbal tea and just let yourself relax.

#5: Setting Intentions

September Equinox 2021 is a good time for setting intentions and choosing new goals in life. Take your time to think about what you want in life, what changes you need to make, and the new habits you need to develop. Choose what metaphorical seeds you are planting this season, and how you will water them.

Now light a candle to create a sacred space. Choose positive intentions to focus on. Meditate on the candle flame while concentrating your attention on your intentions and goals. You can also repeat positive affirmations and personal mantras to boost the effect of this practice. If you don’t know your personal mantra, take our QUIZ to find yours!

#6: Ritual “Reconnecting With The Sun”

sun image
  1. Stand facing east. Look in the direction where the Sun rises.
  2. Say your gratitude to the Sun for all the good things in your life and ask for guidance and assistance in the future.
  3. Visualize your future as you would like it to be. Listen to all the feelings and emotions that arise. What do you feel? Immerse yourself in these feelings. Let the sun recharge you and fill your intentions for a good future with its energy.

The Bottom Line

The significance of the September Equinox for the people walking the spiritual path is the time of year where we activate our new cycle of spiritual and personal growth. As we become silent and rest we are creating space for our greater vision to emerge. On the day of Fall Equinox, we encourage you to take some time to acknowledge your life cycle and spiritual path. In doing so, you are honoring, not only your own growth and light within but the ancient wisdom that has served humanity for many thousands of years.

Happy Fall Equinox!

The Full Harvest Moon 2021: Powerful Time For a Global Healing

Published

on

The Full Harvest Moon 2021 image

The Full Harvest Moon 2021 will occur on Monday, September 20, 2021. The upcoming Full Moon is often called the Autumn Moon, Falling Leaves Moon, Leaves Turning Moon, Moon of Brown Leaves, Yellow Leaf Moon, Child Moon, Mating Moon, Rutting Moon. In this article, I will share with you what kind of energy, challenges, and spiritual lessons this Full Moon brings to us. Also, I’ll give you some helpful tips, recommendations, and spiritual practices that will help you balance this energetically powerful time so you can get the most out of it.

When Is The Full Harvest Moon 2021?

The full Harvest Moon will rise in the southeast just after sunset on Monday, September 20 – just two days before the fall equinox! This full Moon reaches peak illumination at 7:54 P.M. Eastern Time on the 20th.

The Full Moon In Pisces

According to Vedic astrology, the Full Moon takes place at 4 degrees of Pisces. The Full Harvest Moon 2021 occurs on the Pisces/Virgo axis (the Moon in Pisces, the Sun in Virgo).

The Sun in Virgo will give a tendency to hard work, pay attention to small things and details. Therefore, during this time, it’s good to make plans and follow them. However, there is a danger of getting bogged down in details. Perfectionism can interfere with the implementation of the result. Also, it’s not a good idea to bring others to nitpicking and petty remarks.

Keep in mind that Virgo is characterized by youth and lack of life experience. Therefore, the overall vision and determination to proceed with the implementation of the plan may decrease. It is worth having good support and guidance from more experienced people.

Pisces is a mutable sign ruled by Jupiter. Its element is Water. Pisces is a sign that is emotional, sentimental, intuitive, self-pitying, spiritual, compassionate, sympathetic, faithful, lacking boundaries, lacking initiative and self-confidence. This full moon may manifest these qualities in people. Many people may become more intuitive and even develop psychic abilities during this time.

Since many of us will feel that our intuitive abilities are greatly strengthened, we should use this time for creativity, art, meditations, spiritual rituals, and practices. Devote more time to studying your inner self, analyze it and highlight ideas that you could implement in the future.

The Full Moon In Uttara Phalguni and Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatras

Full Moon In Pisces Image

According to Vedic astrology, the Full Moon takes place in the lunar mansions of Uttara Phalguni and Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatras. Let’s take a closer look at these lunar mansions and what kinds of energies they represent.

Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra is commonly marked by Denebola, denoting the end of the leonine tail in the constellation Leonis. It is symbolically associated with a hammock or rear legs of a cot. Its symbolism is associated with tranquil spaces, healing, and recuperation. Uttara Phalguni is a prestigious star for those wishing to return health to the sick or strength in the weary. This nakshatra is focused on global service which means providing for the individual on the understanding they also contribute for the benefit of all. It is also considered a nakshatra of union, which might be in matters of business or personal relationship. In general, it stimulates the need to heal, nourish, and serve. Uttara Phalguni is notable, generous, giving a quick mind and high honers, but has an association with the people of a bad reputation.

During this Full Moon, Uttara Phalguni wants us to focus on friendship and our service to others. This is a good time to develop and manifest such qualities as generosity and compassion. Also, we need to remember to take care of ourselves, focus on self-healing and self-love. During this time, we may feel extra emotional about wanting to alleviate the suffering in society and help others. However, we should keep in mind that this nakshatra gives a tendency to be controlling and very stubborn in your efforts. Therefore, it’s essential to remember to find balance in everything you do!

Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra is symbolically associated with the back two legs of a funeral cot. While this imagery is maybe unsettling, the energy of this nakshatra is considered to be grounding and stabilizing. It has meanings of a reorientation after a loss or the steps of integrating a changed reality following a shock. Located in the middle of Pisces, Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra shares some of Pisces’ quality of completion.

Uttara Bhadrapada is deemed fortunate in matters of legacy, that is, sporadic gifting from benefactors or profits from long-term investment. Real estate, heirlooms/antiques, and other fixed assets can also be considered. Since this nakshatra is also associated with a coiled serpent, there could also be tendencies to accumulate a ‘chance upon’ wealth, since secured or hidden treasures are typically associated with serpents/nagas. Additionally, people involved in any form of occult practice, including astrology, clairvoyance, or divining, may increase their income during this time. It is due to the fact that these are all deemed serpent’s talents.

In general, this Full Moon is an excellent time for signing legal documents or long-term contracts and giving advice. Rest assured that during the Full Harvest Moon 2021 people will have the necessary awareness for making proper decisions.

Health-related Issues

Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra may cause weakness of the small intestine (ulcers), diseases of genitalia, injury to the lower spine, severe headaches, appendicitis, thrombosis, and inflammatory conditions of the liver. It can also cause health issues related to the outer thighs, liver, bowel, and navel.

Health-related issues of Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra include weakness of feet, lungs, and teeth, anemia, fevers, digestive irritability, constipation, piles, and epilepsy. It can also cause health issues related to the sides of the torso, navel, ankles, feet, toes (including toenails).

How to Work With the Full Moon Energy?

Harvest Moon 2021 Image

If we do not live in the rhythm of the lunar cycle, we most likely will feel mood swings and fatigue during the Full Moon time. Moreover, our emotional and even physical condition may deteriorate. Therefore, it is very important to learn to live in harmony with the Moon, especially when it’s at the peak of its activity.

Spend this time during the Full Moon doing some introspective work. Don’t let your energy run rampant with trying to make things happen. Time spent in silence, prayer, and meditation will be karmically rewarded. No matter what’s happening around you, stay calm, grounded, and centered.

For harmonizing the influence of the Moon on our lives, we can perform Moon practices and adjust our lifestyle to the Moon’s vibrations.

Spiritual Practices For the Full Harvest Moon 2021

#1: Filling Up With Lunar Energy

This practice is especially recommended for those who have mood swings and unbalanced emotions.

Instructions:
  1. Place a glass of clean water on the windowsill (or next to the window) so that the moonlight reflects in it. Leave it there for the night.
  2. In the morning, drink that Moon water on an empty stomach. Tell your gratitude to the Moon. Chant the Moon mantra: OM CHANDRAYA NAMAHA (108 times).

#2: Full Moon Mantra Chanting For Attracting Abundance

During the Full Moon, go outside (backyard or patio), stretch your hands up to the Moon. When looking at the Full Moon, set your intention to attract abundance into your life and repeat the following mantra for 12 minutes: OM SHRAAM SHREEM SHRAUM SAH CHANDRAMASE NAMAHA

The Bottom Line

The Full Harvest Moon 2021 will teach us how to be more generous and compassionate towards others and ourselves. We, as a society, have been through big chaos, instability, and uncertainty lately. Now is a powerful time for nourishing our souls and healing our emotional traumas. We all need this break to slow down, reflect, heal, recharge so that we can move forward with courage and clear awareness of world events.
