The moment of the New Moon on Friday, August 30, 2019 brings with it a new beginning, a new path, new choices, thoughts or ideas, new projects are emerging, all of which are now supported by the energy of the Virgin.
It's time to be present, to project positively and to start those actions that we really find ourselves in.
Ability detoxification of the body is maximum on the day of the New Moon. Anyone make a rule of having a fasting day every time the month is will benefit from many advantages in the prevention of diseases. De such a day is perfect to start a new activity such as the unlearning of bad habits. Often habits are the external expression of some inner energies that have just need a new goal to become useful and valuable for us and for other people.
it is a night of divine transcendence, and if we engage in spiritual activities we can achieve exceptional results that equate to the results obtained from a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
For that this new beginning to "establish" better in being and to make the most of this astrological aspect is indicated to carry out a short meditation of about 20 minutes, in its maximum period, 10 minutes before and 10 minutes before minutes after it takes place, i.e. between 13:27 and 13:47.
sit on a chair with your back straight and your hands resting on your thighs with your palms down, we aim to completely relax our body, especially the muscles of the face.
It is necessary to feel the physical body abandoned and immobile. After we've done the "parking" of the body, we turn our attention inside the body, into the middle of the chest, and imagine that we're adimensional at that level.
Throughout meditation, we aim to feel the complex influence of this astral moment, of the New Moon, when the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon participate in the "cosmic wedding", by dividing the same zodicacal degree. Now the male and the female merge into a perfect unit.
Thanks conjunction between the Sun and the Moon is manifested a complementarity special yin– yang energies from nature.
If we now seek to find a perfect agreement between our will and God's will, our consciousness will go through exceptional spiritual transformations that will lead to the acquisition of the state of harmony and inner peace.
Through the state of consciousness cultivated by various Abheda Yoga techniques, certain unfavorable astrological transits can be transcensed. Apart from these methods to be practiced systematically, it can be said that the destiny of men is written in the stars and it is relatively difficult for the ordinary man to manifest free will, independent of the influences of celestial bodies.
Night that precedes this phenomenon of the New Moon, in our case the night from 29 to 30 August 2019, is celebrated in the tradition of oriental spiritual under the name Shiva Ratri.
Night before the New Moon is a night of transcendence divine, and if we engage in spiritual activities we can exceptional results that equate to the results of the obtained after a year of assiduous spiritual practice.
During this astral moment, it is good to have an easy diet or even to practice Anaharin – black fasting only with water, to reduce the pace of daily activities, and to aim to orient ourselves inwards, being aware that this night is particularly effective for the practice of meditation, it gives us the opportunity to thus achieve important spiritual progress.
Friday, 30 August 2019 – 13:37, Romanian time, marks the moment of the New Moon in Virgo at 6:47 and activates house IX in the map of this astral moment.
An intense need for purification, rearrangement, reorganization, perfection now print all the projects we want to start, we choose to put ourselves in the service of the higher ideas specific to House IX, a house of Faith and Knowledge. Through this "space" created by house IX we will seek to join all those people we feel in resonance with our being, with our goals. We will come into contact with those who have similar goals to us and who, from this moment on, want us as comrades in battle; we will strive to be as prepared as possible for what we have set out to do and the Virgin's Earth energy will give us the strength to move forward by being very cautious and attentive to every detail.
The perfect conjunction between the Moon and the Sun occurs on the 6th degree, the degree of Venus – this degree helps us to integrate into a concrete, material reality, it helps us to recognize our thoughts and intentions very well; we know what suits us, we are aware of our value and the intuition of this recognition generates in us a sense of fulfillment.
We are now ready to plant the seeds of our projects and this beginning we have long been waiting for restores harmony in our being by regenerating it; we are as if helped to rediscover our lost dignity by realizing the power to use the gifts and grace with which each of us has been endowed.
But we must nevertheless show great caution to the tendency towards distrust, doubt, self-criticism as well as criticism of others, to the exacerbation of material values and purely materialistic purposes and to try to put them at the service of higher values.
The Virgin's energy will support us in all approaches that concern health, work, relationships with subordinates or will create new possibilities to discover remedies/recipes that can contribute to our physical and mental state. We can show an intense concern for our body or for a possible diet but at the same time the same need for order and purification will be felt at the mental level which can generate a feeling of restlessness and agitation.
It can be a period that favors spiritual practice, domestic activities related to cleanliness, purification of the place where we work or live or any kind of actions by which we put ourselves at the service of others thus obtaining a state of peace and soul fulfillment.
From an esoteric point of view, the Virgin's ideogram may suggest the intestinal mendres since the Virgin is anatomically suited to the digestion process and the intestines but can also refer to the cerebal circumvolutions. Virgo is governed by Mercury, the planet of conunica and intelligence and may indicate a mysterious connection that exists between the process of digesting physical food and that of digesting mental and spiritual nourishment. It can have a double function – at the intestinal level to select the main waste foods, assimilating the former and eliminating the latter and at the cerebral level to discern ideas, useful information, beneficial from the useless and toxic ones, eliminating the latter through a process of mental cleansing. This very purification process is the one we are currently engaged in.
Also, the Virgin is associated with the state of purity and some spiritual currents conceive spiritual fulfillment as a state of absolute purity, offering as a means of evolution the path of purity. The follower who engages in this way must be progressively purified in the way of acting (behaviour), in the way of feeling (emotional), in the way of manifesting his affectivity (sentimental), in the way of speaking (communicative) and in the way of thinking (mental). Of course, he must also seek a pure food, a pure ambience. ("Esoteric symbols of the zodiacs" – Dr. Sorin Bratoveanu)
The time has come to purify our body and mind, to give up those thoughts, harmful habits in our diet, from our work, from our relationships with those close to us and to try to give our being all the care and love it deserves by giving it only what is beneficial to it.
Should be however, let us be careful of the conjunction that Mars is making with this New Moon and try to keep under control the tendency to reproach others for past mistakes, at this time of purification we can not download others for all the frustrations attention to verbal aggression, criticism or tendency to to accuse those who once made us feel like we were 'insufficient'; maybe it's just a time when it's asked from us to be humble and pure (Virgin) and to look at them only to we realize that our place no longer near them.
This The New Moon energizes house IX – a house of faith, knowledge high, of meaning. We'll head for what it looks like meaning for us, and this may mean stepping up relationship with God, openness to new ideals, journeys initiation, higher education or books of spiritual development but all this will be achieved by constantly analysing our effectiveness.
We willing to purify ourselves precisely in order to receive a new "food", of another nature this time, a nourishment of the soul and mind; putting ourselves in the service of that ideal within us (Virgin) that honors Divinity and allows us to manifest our divine potential with which we were endowed and by which we manifestthe the "perfection" of which we are capable (house IX) , we access a state of fulfillment that will allow us to live permanently in the world but with attention to our interior, to the divinity within us.
The purity of the heart is the most important. The rest is work. The whole universe is engaged in God's work of worshipYoga Swami – spiritual master
