Known in India as Sharad Purnima, this Full Moon is said to open a portal to Lakshmi, Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. Lakshmi’s divine feminine influence, or shakti, will infuse the moon’s bright rays, detoxifying our bodies and increasing the flow of wealth in our lives. If the universe has seemed to be holding back, or it’s felt like you’re running in place, this month’s Full Moon will provide just the remedy.
In India it is said that Lakshmi showers the night sky with a nectar of rain known as the Amrita Barkha. Moon-bathing in this celestial nectar is especially beneficial, as is wearing light creamy colors, and cooking sweet liquids.
To make your own nectar-charged “moon milk,” leave out a glass of sweetened milk of any kind (it doesn’t have to be dairy) on the night of the Full Moon, and share it with friends and family to increase health, wealth and prosperity. In India, they often use Kheer, a sweet milk rice pudding, which you can make at home.
Positioned at the very last degree of the sidereal Zodiac, this Full Moon transits the tip of Pisces’s tail, the star known as Revati. While Revati’s primary influence inspires love and harmony--and shepherds lost animals home--give yourself a healthy dose of compassion, as it may also bring up feelings of discomfort. With its position at 29 degrees Pisces, this Full Moon falls at the cusp of radical change.
At ten p.m., just 40 minutes after the moon reaches its peak of fullness, it will cross into a celestial twilight zone known as gandanta. This unpredictable cusp position could set off a series of strange or unexpected events, particularly with the influence of fiery Mars and moon's conjunction with Uranus, known for delivering shocks.
But those shocks will feel minor as compared with the host of positive changes and new opportunities ushered in by the Revati Full Moon. If you’ve been feeling the heat since last month's eclipse, you’ll soon get some relief. Prepare to welcome in a new era of abundance and prosperity, and ride the wave of uncertainty until you reach the next level.
