Happy New Moon!

“Ready to reconnect to your passion? The new moon of July 31, 2019 (8:12 pm PT) is a nourishing reboot for your soul. Spinning on the tail of some heavy and exhausting eclipse energy, this new moon ignites positive spiritual growth, while offering a new lease on love, creativity and emotional fulfillment.

The new moon is in sidereal Cancer, in the area of the sky called Pushya, the star of nourishment. Symbolized by a blooming lotus flower, or the milk-giving udder of a cow, this nakshatra is a heavenly source of spiritual and emotional nourishment.

An ancient Hindu deity named Brihaspati, dwells in Pushya, a powerful teacher, protector and the “guru of the gods.” This new moon transmits a timeless spiritual wisdom to those who seek it, and can heighten emotional awareness of those in need.  It’s a time to care for gardens, cook nourishing meals, and treat yourself and others with an extra dose of compassion.

Mercury stations direct on July 31 (just a few minutes after the new moon) ending delays and clearing obstructions in communication.   An auspicious gaze (drishti) of expansive Jupiter gives this new moon a healing balm of hope in the midst of anxiety.   Jupiter will turn direct on August 11, increasing optimism and giving a much-needed dose of motivation for finishing projects and reaching goals in the weeks to come.

As the moon waxes, open to the nourishment of connection and unity with the world around you.  August is a month for healing the heart, letting your guard down, and reconnecting to your passion.”
