Maha Shivaratri 2017 – Releasing, Surrendering, and Jumping through the Ring of Fire!

23 Feb

Maha Shivaratri is the big yearly festival dedicated Lord Shiva, most revered deity in Hinduism, and ‘patron’ of Yoga, meditation, Union with the Formless.



Lord Shiva


Shivaratri is celebrated in remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life and the world.
In Piscean mode, let’s connect to festivals of yearly Astrology related cycles – if we feel an inner resonance, and receive a benefit! ❤
This year, Feb 24 / 25 is the sacred night (ratri) dedicated to Shiva . It is believed that in this ‘moonless night’ – the night before the New Moon, Lord Shiva performed the dance of destruction and re-creation.

If you are inspired to tune into Shiva energy, esp. as a practicing Yogi/ni you might also be interested in watching the documentary “Naked in Ashes”.

And since we are now also in the phase of the Dark Moon – the ‘Crone Moon’ (last days before the New Moon on Feb 26, as the sliver has disappeared in the heavens) it’s time to go inwards, release and surrender to the forces and gifts of life, out of which the natural course of action may arise, with the NEW MOON.

Even more so, since the PISCES NEW MOON will be a ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse with MERCURY and NEPTUNE – releasing fabrications of the mind, and surrendering into the big mystery!
Jumping through the ‘Ring of Fire’!
So much ARIES energy follows – radical renewal!
The newly waxing ‘Shiva’ Sliver MOON will enter fiery ARIES on MoOnday Feb 27 (at 8:52 pm PST, meeting with VENUS, MARS, and URANUS. Time for emergence and energetic new beginnings, after the Piscean ultimate surrender. A breath of Spring, and great time for vibrant new energy to come forth.
