The full moon rises on Saturday, September 10th. According to Jyotish (Vedic astrology), it occurs in the sign of Aquarius. In this article, I will share everything you need to know about the full moon in Aquarius and give some tips on how to make this time balanced and smooth.
When Is The Full Moon In Aquarius?
The full moon in Aquarius will occur on Saturday, September 10th, 2022, reaching peak illumination at 5:58 AM Eastern Time.
The Full Moon In Aquarius
During the full moon period, we are most affected by the constellation in which the moon resides. The full moon in September fills our minds with the energies of the Aquarius constellation.
Aquarius will make us desire to find understanding and support. It is very important to feel that there are people nearby who share your aspirations and ideas during this full moon. During this time, we will want to support freedom and defend justice. Some of us may even have altruistic urges to do something important for the world.
The Full Moon In Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra
Purva Bhadrapada is a Jupiter-ruled nakshatra. It is symbolically associated with twins or a man with two faces. This nakshatra represents duality, the opposites – beginnings and endings, introspection and extrospection, light and shadow.
Under the influence of Purva Bhadrapada, many people will become two-faced and manipulative. The weaker-minded people should be especially cautious during this time. Many of us will be dealing with a “two-faced reality” – things will look different from what they really are. We may hear empty promises. People may present themselves in an inauthentic manner. Don’t trust everything you hear or see, and try not to get frustrated by people who act fake or try to manipulate others. This is the influence of Purva Bhadrapada – some are more prone to this energy than others. Look at such people with compassion.
This is a time when we all should try to be as honest and transparent as possible with our day-to-day dealings as well as any significant aspects of our lives.
Also, many of us will feel more nervous during this time than usual. We may also be prone to negative thinking, concentrating too much on our fears and worries. Be mindful – don’t allow your overactive mind to take control of your inner voice. Stay present and focus on solutions instead of problems. Meditate and let your mind rest a little.
When making a decision, make sure you’re observing situations from different angles. Stay open-minded. By merging your logic with your intuition, you’re more likely to make decisions you won’t regret.
Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra may cause mental trauma, liver problems, weakness of chest/lungs, constipation, rheumatism, problems with feet and toes.
How to Work With the Full Moon Energy?
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. 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.
To harmonize the moon’s influence on our lives, we can perform moon practices and adjust our lifestyle to the moon’s vibrations.
Spiritual Practices For the Full Moon
#1: Filling Up With Lunar Energy
This practice is especially recommended for those who have mood swings and unbalanced emotions.
- 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.
- 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), and 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
#3: Chanting SHRIM Mantra
SHRIM is the mantra of beauty, love, and delight. This is the mantra of Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance, wealth, and beauty. Chanting this mantra helps to expand the sense of beauty, and attract love and abundance.
The Bottom Line
The September full moon will teach us how to see life, people, and events beyond duality. We need to learn how to expand our consciousness by overcoming the dualistic point of view. We need to stop putting labels “right or wrong”, “good or bad”, etc. and learn to respect the existence of both polarities. It is the unity of the opposites where harmony is being born. This is the main principle of SOLANCHA.
Take time to reflect on what the full moon brings up for you. Get outside at night and let the light of the Moon shine upon you. Then, bring your attention to the changes in perspective you need to make so that you can overcome the dualistic way of thinking.
