“It’s during the darkest hours that we must focus on the light. The full moon of April 7, (7:35 pm PT) is the closest and brightest super moon of 2020.
In Vedic Astrology, this full moon is in Chitra, a nakshatra of inner wisdom, truth, and clarity. Chitra is symbolized by a shining diamond, a jewel that’s created under tremendous pressure and heat. Chitra full moon gives solutions to our problems, and precious insight, even under the pressure of crisis and tragedy.
Historically, eclipses in Mula, like a scorpion’s sting, accompany shock and upheaval. Incidentally, there was a Mula eclipse in 1918 at the beginning of the Spanish flu pandemic. Another Mula lunar eclipse occurred just 6 weeks before the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945, and before the 9/11 attacks as well. The most recent eclipse in Mula occurred just last December, at the onset of the tragic COVID-19 pandemic.
Though frightening, Mula is also the star of Divine Mother Kali in her all-loving and spiritually awakened form. Mula literally means root or foundation, and asks us to get to the root of what sustains us, to make sure it’s healthy, strong and resilient.
It may feel like the foundation of the world is cracking now, but it’s also an opportunity to rebuild a stronger, deeper foundation from the bottom up. Slowing down to assess your life’s path, and meditating on your root chakra is a grounding way to use this transformative time.”
