Shivaratri Night Feb 13 – 14: Union with the Formless

12 Feb

Let’s connect to festivals of yearly Astrology related cycles – if we feel an inner resonance, and receive a benefit!
Maha Shivaratri is the big yearly festival dedicated Lord Shiva, most revered deity in Hinduism, and ‘patron’ of Yoga, meditation, Union with the Formless.

Shiva Nataraja – the Dancing Shiva

Shivaratri is celebrated in remembrance of overcoming darkness and ignorance in life and the world.

This year, Feb 13 – 14 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’ll be also in the phase of the Dark Moon – the ‘Crone Moon’ (last days before the New Moon / Partial Solar ECLIPSE on Feb 15), 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.
