Vakratunda mahaakaaya suryakoti samaprabhaa
Nirvighnam kurumedeva sarvakaaryeshu sarvadaa
Salutations to the supreme Lord Ganesh, whose curved trunk (vakra-tunda) and massive body (maha-kaayaa) shines like a million suns (surya-koti) and showers his blessings on everyone (sama-prabhaa). Oh my lord of lords Ganesh (kurume-deva), kindly remove all obstacles (nir-vighnam), always (sarva-) and forever (sarvadaa-) from all my activities and endeavors (sarva-kaaryeshu).
Welcome to the Virgo New Moon & Solar Eclipse and September…
The winds of change are blowing strong as we enter September and this very magical period between the Eclipses.
Significantly, the fourth day after this Virgo New Moon (Sept. 5, 2016,) marks the very auspicious period of the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, celebrating the omnipresent in the form of the elephant headed God.
Even if you don’t do an elaborate puja or ritual, take the time to offer a simple prayer to Ganesha — to ask for his grace and blessings in your life over the coming year.
If you want to learn more — I’m including links from my Guru, Sri Amma Karunamayi, at the bottom of this email, explaining the very real significance of the current energy, the festival, and how you can observe and celebrate it.
Coming back to the skies — aspects at the time of a New and Full Moon seed a cycle for two weeks. Eclipses set patterns for at least six months, often longer. So pay attention to what you’re setting into motion now. With Virgo, every thought, word and deed counts, and is what is ultimately drawing you to your destiny, creating your life.
This Eclipse was in opposition to Neptune, so I wouldn’t rule out minor miracles over the coming two weeks. And the energy surrounding the Pisces Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse seems pretty romantic to me. But first with the planets stacked in Virgo, we’re also getting a heavy dose of reality,
Be conscious not to delude yourself; magical thinking alone won’t work, you will still need to do the work, and then leave room for grace. This is Jupiter’s last week in Virgo: where you’ve been working selflessly with devotion, you will be rewarded.
Jupiter enters Libra on Sept. 9, 2016, ushering us into a whole new world, moving relationships to a new level, asking for balance and wisdom as you make life-changing choices.
