Guru Purnima Full Moon Blessings – with the Astro ‘Gurus’ Jupiter & Saturn!

6 Jul

There’s a lot to the upcoming CAP – CAN Full Moon – exact on Saturday July 8 at 9:07 pm PDT!

Yet, it can be summed up in simple ways (CAP likes that!) – Guru Purnima leads the way!

The Full Moon comes with Sirius the ‘Dog Star’ / Scorcher (which is presently at 14°19′ CAN), next to the SUN / MARS, and with Vega the ‘Harp Star’ (which is presently at 15°34′ CAP), next to the MOON / PLUTO.
Two major Fixed Stars – with beautiful yet also dramatic ‘star love lore’ are involved in the already Full Moon ‘Power House’.
And: the Full Moon axis is squared by super-charger JUPITER.

Here is the Sirius / Vega enhanced Full Moon Chart – whoaaa!

CAP - CAN FM 2017 Sirius Vega

 

Here on the West Coast, the Full Moon will be exact at Moonrise / Sunset!

Clearly, this Full Moon gets our attention, and has us process lots of inner, old, ancestral, ancient ‘stuff’ (PLUTO next to the MOON in CAP).

 

Pluto Heart

Pluto Reveals… One of the first pictures New Horizons transmitted from the close fly-by in July 201

 

And it’ll be also in the centre of CAN – CAP (which has a ‘fixed’ SCO – TAU ‘undertone’ – the ‘axis of the Buddha’.

A friend sent me a Ram Das article today – so synchronistic.

Here ‘s a related one that’s even more pertinent. RD nails it. SO apropos full-ON CAP Moon with Pluto:

  • What’s our job when people ‘are difficult’?
  • How do our emotions and needs (like for them to love and appreciate us) have power over us, pull you into the drama and out of equanimity?
  • What needs to deepen to change this?
  • A heavy curriculum… (a la CAP)… yet lightened and transformed in the Heart.

I get it, and have been there with family and other ‘karmic partners’…

This Full Moon also helps us connect with ‘Ancient Essence’ – the essence of the Ancestors (PLUTO in CAP with the MOON). Biological Ancestors, ancient Teachers, Ancestors of the Land…
Maybe their Spirit is speaking to us…

 

In Hindu and Buddhist tradition the Full Moon in July is the Guru Purnima / Guru Puja, dedicated to the inner and outer Guru.

Ganesha

Ganesh is being invoked at the onset of a journey.

We could all use some Ganesh energy nowadays / -years…
SATURN (ruler of the Full Moon sign CAP) is presently in SAG (Sept 2015 – Winter Solstice 2017) where karmic challenges for ‘the journey’ / the path arise – only to teach us what our inner blocks and old beliefs are…

Dense stuff, perhaps. Heavy curriculum?
May the Inner Teacher and light bringer show the way!

 

 


OM_concentric
“Ohhh, I don’t have a Guru, nor do I want one!” is what one might hear from us Westerners…

GU-RU means ‘simply’ “From Darkness to Light” – one who removes darkness and brings light. 

“Guru Purnima is celebrated on the day of the year when the Sun is closest to the Earth and the Full Moon reflects the brightest light. It is a holy day, and an especially beneficial time to make fresh resolves for spiritual growth.

Because the energies of the Sun and Moon are both at their peak, our subtle energy channels are unusually open and receptive to absorb spiritual energy. Practices done or begun on this day will bring growth and auspiciousness in the life of the disciple.

Through sadhana (spiritual practice) and by following the Guru’s teachings, devotees can purify the mind to reflect the Atman, just as the Moon reflects the brightness of the Sun.

Traditionally, Guru Purnima is an auspicious time to begin four months of spiritual practice. Beginning at this time allows us to make great spiritual progress more quickly.”

 

Never too early, never too late, for spiritual practice, and connection with the inner guru / teacher / mentor / light bringer, I’d say.

Time (ruled by CAP) in fact can be suspended, stretched, and can dissolve and ‘disappear’ in immersion with what IS  (PLUTO points us to ‘that’). The guru is a bridge into vastness, spaciousness, and freedom.

 

In Astrology, the ‘Guru’ is associated with the Archetypes of JUPITER, the mentor, and SATURN, the teacher.

 

Jupiter & Earth

Presently, JUPITER is in mid LIBRA, T-squaring the Full Moon axis(!):

As mentioned above:
What ‘kicks us out of balance’ (esp. in relationships with loved ones and not-so-loved ones)?
What’s the emotional charge – CAN – and what’s the need for acknowledgment, control that turns into judgment – CAP – ?
What brings us into inner Peace, regardless?

How about developing a good relationship (LIBRA) with spiritual practice?
Once we SEE the benefits (JUPITER) it’s clearly a wise choice (LI).

 

Saturn & Earth

SATURN is also very potent at this Guru Puja time, since it is now almost stationary (during August), and will go from retro (since Apr 6) to direct / forward on Aug 25.

As we step out of the ‘path’ of limiting Karma and ‘Obstacles’, we SEE more clearly, and move forward with transformed understanding and strength.

 

Under PLUTO in SATURN ruled CAP (2008 – 2023), and NEPTUNE & CHIRON in PISCES (since 2011 / 2012, until 2018 / 2026) so many traditional spiritual teachings and practices  have massively reached the Western, modern cultures and become ‘mainstream’.

Different accesses and avenues for everyone, yet light is always light.

 

Aummmm! Namaste!

The Light in me honours the Light in you!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to YOUR INNER ‘COSMIC COMPASS’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’ those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘HUB OF THE WHEEL’where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified WITH them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

ASTRO~EXPERIENCES, via Courses. Workshops, and Embodied Astrology:

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 13 years I’ve been facilitating workshops and classes) become quite potent and catalytic.
In a world of online offers, our small, intimate Astro hubs (6 – 10 participants) are a treasured way of being personally seen and involved – more commitment, a personal sense of community, and deeper effects.
Come join us, if deep synergy in a circle speaks to you!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!
