Moon Diary 3.5.15

Thursday is associated with the planet Jupiter, representing higher teachings – what we are here to learn – and the expansion of wisdom and experience in our lives. Jupiter is a sattvic and benefic planet, and is said to be a significator of luck and fortune.

Today is a Purna day – Purna meaning full.

Today is the 15th day of the Waxing Moon, Shukla PurnimaFull Moon – the brightness of the Moon is an indicator of strength and auspiciousness, and for any action to bear fruit, the Moon should be strong, and it is strongest when full.

The Moon is our feelings, our mind, and represents the Mother principle, the energy that creates and preserves. Moon is the deity of the element of water, and rules over the tides of the sea. On the East Coast today, a nor’easter is moving up the coast with a lot of water in various forms getting moved around. Ponder that!

The deity is the Vishvadevas, all the Hindu deities as a whole.

The Moon is in the sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun, and in the Nakshatra of Purva Phalguni, ruled by Venus. The primary motivation experienced here is kama or pleasure

The deity is Bhaga, the God of Prosperity, who protects marital happiness and bestows family inheritance.

The lesson of Purva Phalguni is to be generous rather than self-indulgent with all the gifts and grace we receive on all levels in our life.

So today is, in essence, a holy day – a day where feelings are at a peak, and with Jupiter ruling the day, we’re feeling the higher beliefs, what we believe in, the guru in our life.

So today we can pray easily – the channels are open – be generous with your time and praise – encourage the kids, pray for everyone in the family, meditate with the spouse – feel the richness all around – every moment is filled with possibility and shakti – know it, feel it, sing it, speak it – feel the awesome energy of the Divine coursing through your veins and all the meridians and channels in your body – that’s the kind of day it is.

Good day for meditation, reflection, prayer, and feeling the flow of grace. Also a ripe time for completion of projects.

Traditionally, an auspicious day for ceremonies, spiritual practices, and the manifestation of wishes.
