New Moon in Revati, in Pisces
Friday 08:30 CET
Revati, the last nakshtra of the zodiac, represents the soul’s accumulated lessons and the releasing of attachment to material things. Revati, 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒓𝒊𝒄𝒉, is a gentle and benefic nakshatra, said to grant prosperity to its inhabitants, yet there is also a somber quality to it, in the sense that Revati also can show us all the things we nurture attachments to and where we need to let things go. The ruling deity is Pushan, the nurturer, who guides the soul on its journey and helps us retrieve lost things.
The ruling planet is Mercury, which together with Jupiter, ruler of Pisces, provides wisdom and inspiration. Revatis’ symbol is a fish, signifying abundance and immersion in universal consciousness, like a tiny drop of water merging back into the sea. Revati is called the wealthy, and this nakshatra is really rich in wisdom, spiritual attainment and empathy. It is motivated by moksha, 𝒍𝒊𝒃𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏, and is Sattwic in nature on all levels.
Revati is beneficial for deepening our spiritual practice and the effort we put into our spiritual practice now, with Mars and Saturn in Capricorn guiding us to do the work, can really benefit when Jupiter moves into Pisces as well.
The New Moon day, 𝑨𝒎𝒂𝒗𝒂𝒔𝒚𝒂 (also known as ‘No Moon Day’), is when we become most introspective, when the Moon, 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑰𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒅𝒖𝒂𝒍 𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒍, (our mind/emotions) is at its darkest; it gets lost within the light from the Sun, 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒖𝒑𝒓𝒆𝒎𝒆 𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒍. This is the reason behind the feeling of wanting to be in seclusion more during the New Moon, because the Moon (our emotions) is not as bright; we can feel more insecure or exposed during this time.
This is also due to the fact that we identify so strongly with the Moon, which represent our sense of self, and how we relate to the world. This is not an issue of the the Sun, it shines just as brightly every day, but the Moon represents how when we only relate from our individual self we can feel insecure. The ultimate realization that the Sun brings to the Moon is that we are all part of the Supreme, and never really alone, because we’re not this individual self, we are part of something more.
When the Moon is closest to the Sun and its purifying rays, there is also a cleansing happening, where every New Moon brings the opportunity to bring us closer to the truth of our soul. It gives us an opportunity every month of peeling the onion so to speak, little by little. This is a day where it is beneficial to take a moment to sit in solitude, observe the emotions that come and go with acceptance and consider the new cycle ahead 🧘♀️
What vision do we want to bring into fruition when the light starts to return? 🙏🌒✨
Some questions to reflect upon this New Moon:
❧ Am I honoring my spiritual journey?
❧ Am I taking care of my emotional wellbeing?
❧ Do I have any attachments in need of letting go?
❧ Is there something in need of healing in my life?
❧ How can I bring more healing into the collective?
The New Moon is symbolic for setting new intentions, and starting a new chapter, and with this one happening in the last nakshatra of the zodiac, this indicates a cycle coming to an end before we can begin anew. What are you letting go of?
𝑵𝒆𝒘 𝑴𝒐𝒐𝒏 𝑩𝒍𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔! ✨
