“Feeling on edge? Tangled up and entwined? The unsettling summer of 2016 is about to take an intense new twist. The new moon of August 2nd administers a potent medicine that can usher us into the light of liberation – if we are ready for its healing venom.
The new moon will be in the area of the sky known as Ashlesha, the kundalini snake star of wisdom. This mystical naga-snake offers a formidable healing power. As It slithers through its subconscious terrain, it exposes hidden fears and desires, and can ultimately free us from disempowering beliefs.
Ashlesha is situated at the edge of a subtle ocean in the watery sign of Cancer, and serves as a gateway into the fiery sign of Leo. In Vedic Astrology we call this important point gandanta; meaning “karmic knot.” It is a breaking point in the Zodiac and an important threshold of transformation. This lunar cycle offers an opportunity to break through our knots – our habits and negativities – and expand light into the darkness of ignorance.
