The New Moon is tomorrow, Friday, August 30, 5:37 a.m. CDT in 6° Virgo. In this position there's a big line-up of planets in the sign of Virgo: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. They are all in a harmonious position to Uranus at 6° Taurus.
Wonderful energy for a holiday weekend especially for spending time in a natural setting and enjoying nature. Feeling nurtured by earth energy. Appreciating the cycles of life. Going to farmers markets and savoring the ripe fruits and vegetables. Learning about herbs and herbal remedies. Reflecting on life over a cup of tea.
With Uranus, both creative thinking and computer work can align to help you accomplish your everyday projects.
"The day of fortune is like a harvest day, We must be busy when the corn is ripe."
Here's the poem I based my talk on last Sunday for the Temple of Kriya Yoga. Goswami Kriyananda gave it to us in a class many years ago and I meditate on it often.
The Dawn of Truth
Look to this very day, for it is life--
the very Life of Life itself.
In its brief course lies all the realities of your existence:
the bliss of growth,
the glory of action
the splendor of achievement
the ecstasy of love
Yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of victory.
Look well, therefore, to this very day!
....Such is the salutation to the Dawn of Truth.
(author unknown, often attributed to Kalidasa, Indian author, 5th century)
Look for my latest article "Learning and Teaching" in Yoga Chicago Magazine. It includes upcoming aspects for September and October. The paper copy should be at your local yoga studio, health food store or metaphysical center on September 1. And online a few days after that.
