MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE IN SAGITTARIUS

Mercury is Retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius from today December 3 to 22, 2017.

There is absolutely a positive side to Mercury Retrograde. This period is best used for re-organizing and reflecting. We look at the world a little differently–through different filters–and can come up with some very important inner revelations. It may be difficult to communicate them under this influence, but not everything needs to be explained.

Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, when meditation, yoga, deep breathing, benefiting from keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work are favored. Mercury retrograde is powerful for studies, especially for returning to old studies or for re-learning or refreshing knowledge in a subject already taken.

Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect us to other means of communication, such as when there is an unexpected power outage and we’re forced off the computer and television, finding different and often satisfying ways to entertain ourselves.

Not everyone feels the stronger effects of Mercury retrograde. Some people born with Mercury retrograde in their natal chart, feel that they don’t experience the classic Mercury Retrograde confusion effects as intensely as others, while others do.
Pay close attention to what you communicate in general, specifically around the days of Mercury’s stations (December 3rd and 22nd), as well as around retrograde Mercury’s conjunction to the Sun on December 12th (midway between the start and end of the retro period). When a planet stations, its energies are very strong in our lives. When Mercury stations, communications have more impact, so that negative ones could have long-term implications at this time. However, when you are very clear within yourself and about what you are communicating, this will be a positive time.

It is going to be a big month in astrology as there are lots of  shifts and changes taking place. These shifts are going to help shower us with new energy and new outlook for the year ahead. Trust, whatever unfolds as you move forward into December, and know that when truth is revealed, and new information comes to the surface, it is for your highest good.

As the culmination point to all of this energy, really use tonight’s Full Moon as an opportunity to congratulate yourself for just how far you have come and to celebrate for new beginnings.

Life is simply a string of experiences. We are here to learn things, to share things, and to expand our wisdom and our hearts. It is important that we take time to honor this, and honor the progress we are making.

November: The Beaver Full Moon 

There’s something special, magical, about sky-watching events. For just a second, something way up in the sky, outside of our daily lives, can pull us out of ourselves and into a communal experience that we share with people all over the world. We felt that with meteor showers and the solar eclipse earlier this year. Even with chaos going on in the world around us, it’s grounding. Lucky for us, The Beaver Full Moon will be the largest full moon we’ve had yet in 2017 and it’s happening to grace our sky this full moon weekend! 

The Beaver Moon’s path isn’t passing through any of the 12 constellations of the traditional zodiac, but will pass into Cetus and in front of Aldebaran. The Aldebaran is the brightest star in Taurus, so on Nov. 5 you might just be able to see occultation which is when one celestial body blocks another. 

Get your moon loving friends out for a special viewing. Bring the themed snacks like moon pies and enjoy the Beaver Moon.

Full Moon in Aries 

The Aries Full Moon asks us to gather our courage, make peace with our past, tap into our truest desires, and then leap into action.  
A Full Moon offers the potential for integrating two opposites; this current cycle is about integrating balance (Libra) and from this state of mental harmony, taking  spontaneous action (Aries).
Lift yourself out of whatever dilemma or decision that is present.  Step back, breathe, a diamond of clarity is available. A new and spontaneous perspective can be yours.

Aries Full Moon squares Pluto and this can lead to compulsive and destructive behavior as deeply buried feelings are exposed. It is difficult to control such intense emotions or reactions. Power struggles with authority figures, family or partners are possible and you or they may become quite ruthless. Relationship challenges can be turned into an opportunity to transform and evolve.
Gather your courage, tap into confidence, and from a secure and balanced center, make your move. This is a chance to let go and get   out of whatever mental game of ping-pong and take action. 
To take action, align with what you desire and choose it. 
Full Moons bring a high-energetic release that may feel like a celebration. As this Moon, Sun, and Mercury also point towards Pluto, this formation triggers deep dives into the shadow of our psyche, cathartic healing, and transformation. 

Release the past and welcome the future so you can move through this Full Moon in a way that’s empowered and decisive. 
Above all, don’t worry about what anyone else needs. Cultivate a balanced Libran mind … so that you can make the decisions you need to step closer to yourself. This gives your Aries “I am” experience an opportunity to prosper.

New Moon in Virgo

Today! The new moon Wednesday September 20, 2017 is at 27 degrees Virgo. The astrological influence of this new moon continues the theme of change that began with the total solar eclipse on August 21. The changes will be more like minor adjustments to your long-term goals.

The New Moon in Virgo reminds us of painful wounds that ask to be relieved from suffering. In order to move forward the new focus must begin on the healing process. This will involve adapting to unexpected changes and fine tuning the adjustments to longer term goals and dreams.

New Moon Understanding

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives us an invigorating burst of energy, intention and initiative. This is a fantastic time for making a fresh start, turning to a new chapter in life or starting any new project.

All possibilities are on the table for you as you assert yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old behaviors, beliefs, and habits are questioned now as you search for new inventive ways to make progress.

Under Virgo’s lunar influence of today’s September 20 new moon lasts four weeks up to the October 19 new moon. Within this cycle it is representing a new stage of development. The aim is to make bold, confident changes that lead to long-term success. Determined effort will bring the growth and happiness you desire.

The new moon quincunx Uranus which means this new stage of development involves alterations to your original goals to make it more attainable. Adjusting your methods in response to your deepest and most painful wound so you are set for healing which brings the happiness you deserve. 

Happiness is your birthright.
Happy New Moon,

#krishna

Bhakti Fest Yoga|Dance|Sacred Music Festival 

Bhakti translates as love and devotion. This fabulous festival is four days of camping in the starry California desert, or spending your stay at Joshua Tree Retreat Center practicing meditation and yoga to live musicians, singing kirtan and dancing barefoot to the likes of MC Yogi and Donna Delory until late at night. 

My whole heart is filled with so much happiness to be at Bhakti Fest
For those who like to keep the yoga and mantra mix going, White Swan Records offers innumerable soundtracks for the yoga of life. 
Coconut Bliss served delicious scoops of pure delight. Cool, creamy bites of salted caramel, ginger cookie, and hazelnut chocolate kept yogi and yogini faces more than relaxed, chilled and happy while vibing to the mystic afternoon beats of Girish. With an eclectic mix of rock, indian and reggae inspired rhythms, every artist set us off into a state of bhavtastic bliss!  

Bhakti Fest as a whole was  awesome. Part of what made it so powerful was that the entire sacred festival revolved around live music. It has been envisioned and talked about how Bhakti Fest is as a spiritual Woodstock, where thousands of people come together, chanting the names of God. 
Krishna Das has said that in India, people understand that God is within. The Hindu images associated with God, deities like Krishna and Hanuman and Ganesha, are symbols of the divine that live in each one of us. Chanting the names of God from any tradition is sacred because each repetition is said to be a seed, and sooner or later, that seed grows.

The seeds of love were certainly sent out with rain showers and rainbows in the early morning sky. It was breathtaking to look at and a rainbow has such a powerful message to convey. Lovely to gather there with a cluster of new friends, sitting on lawn chairs and blankets, singing along with other music artists, everyone dancing and spinning. Fantastic evening concert and such a transforming event @ Joshua Tree Retreat Center

We LOVE Bhakti Fest!! 
love, #krishna 

   

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces

The full moon today Wednesday September 6, 2017 is at 13° Pisces. First harvest time of this new eclipse cycle. The astrology of the Harvest Full Moon suggests that it will have an impact on your hopes, dreams and on your love life. Full moons have long been associated with myths and legends and Native Americans gave a distinctive name to the one that occurred each month. September’s full moon is known as the Harvest Moon or Corn Moon because of it occurring at a time when crops were harvested and farmers could work by the light of the full moon. It most commonly occurs in September, but the name is given to the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, which can fall during October once or twice every decade.

 

The Moon is very happy in Pisces. (which also occurs in conjunction with Pisces ruler, Neptune) amplifying the energy of Pisces and making it even more important for us to be sweet, gentle, kind, and caring. This placement in natal charts has certainly brought out some powerful and influential women in the field of medical science and healing. The lunar lesson here is to tap into your own inner guru. Use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome challenges.

 

Sun opposite Moon “Virgo-Pisces” brings attention to your close relationships and how they are influenced. Others may try to bring you down by attacking your private life. The two weeks of this moon phase will be an especially sensitive time. Be very clear to yourself and to others about your intentions. Under the Full Moon we might feel especially thirsty for the waters of Spirit. Yet, we might also find that our thirst is being quenched through tidal waves of intuition, dreams, epiphanies, release of tension.

Every Full Moon marks an energetic peak, which shines a bright beam on whatever is coming full-circle in our Life, highlighting realizations, culminations, manifestations in the world of five senses; yet, with Pisces, it is subtle, holographic, and divine.

 

Revelations and realizations will arise from that lunar space that simultaneously permeates and transcends reality; that immaterial space where the voice of the heart echoes undisturbed. As the veil between worlds grows thinner, the intuitive knowledge and guidance that flickers from beyond will appear closer than ever, to the point of feeling more realistic than the so-called real world itself. The meta-physical plane, on the other hand, will be remarkably alive and vibrant with inspiration, and the limelight of the Full Moon will work as an ethereal channel to the Spirit world.

love, #krishna
