Try to find some time to sit down with your thoughts. Take a moment to reflect in gratitude for all that you have, no matter how much you may believe you are lacking. Quietly make a list of the people and things you are thankful for. This New Moon creates an atmosphere of appreciation and selflessness. Give thanks to the Earth for the food and water she provides and all the richness and beauty of this life. Punarvasu inspires us to reflect on new possibilities, such as strengthening our health through exercise like yoga, and improving eating habits. Aditi is the universal mother who unites us all into one large family. Open your mind to how you could get involved in social and environmental causes that you care about.
The week of July 12th -19th is a time of major transformation for expansive Jupiter as it moves out of watery Cancer into the burning fire of Leo. This is a once in 12 years occurrence. Since fire and water don’t mix, Jupiter will be in an energetic limbo called gandanta. It could shape up to be a stressful week for the spiritual planet of optimism and growth. Anticipate troubles in education, religious organizations, and political institutions. Chaotic disturbances are likely to be felt in areas of your life where Jupiter and the sign of Leo affect your natal chart. However, spiritual practices are supported at this time. It is often in moments of deep confusion that we gain valuable wisdom about ourselves.
Although not visible on the night of the New Moon, talkative Mercury and combative Mars will be in a tight conjunction. When two planets are less than one degree from one another it is called Graha Yuddha, or “planetary war.” Beware of aggressive words. Since Mercury also rules the road, be extra careful in transit. Computer systems and vehicles will be vulnerable to malfunction and overheating. You may find you have difficulty expressing what you really mean and opinions can overpower logical thought. It is better to avoid debate until after 2:00 pm on Thursday when the graha yuddha seperates.
Aditi - The Mother
Aditi is the indivisible consciousness…
All is created by the Supreme Goddess,
the Supreme and Original Mahashakti,
all proceeds from her, all lives by her, all lives in her,
even as she lives in all...
all will and force her will and force,
all action is her action,
all movement her movement.
All beings are portions of her power of existence.
