Maha Shivaratri Night March 4 / 5 – Union with the Formless

4 Mar

Dear Astro Friends,

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


Lord Shiva

This year, March 4 / 5 is the sacred night (Ratri) dedicated to Shiva.

It is believed that in this ‘moonless night’ before the New Moon, Lord Shiva performed the dance of destruction and re-creation.

Shivaratri, the Night of Shiva is celebrated in remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life and in 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!

If you’re 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 PISCES NEW MOON on March 6, 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.

The newly waxing ‘Shiva’ MOON Sliver will enter fiery ARIES on March 7 at 12:27 pm PST, meeting with CHIRON – representing the healing energy through emergence of authentic new beginnings, after the Piscean ultimate surrender.
A breath of Spring, and a great time for vibrant new energy to come forth.


Aum Namah Shivaya!
