This Full Moon in Ashlesha nakshatra is going to be a particularly intense one, as Moon will be aspected by 3 krura grahas: Sun, Saturn and Mars. Sun and Saturn aspecting this Full Moon may easily make us doubt ourselves and feel a bit depressive in this time period. And, as they are both tightly conjuct at the moment, in combination with Mars casting its most transformative, 8th aspect on the Moon in Ashlesha, it may also result in our own bodies becoming oversensitive and our immune systems becoming weaker. This is why many people may suffer in this time period from bacterial and viral infections, as well as poisonings. It’s not a coincidence that dangerous corona virus has emerged exactly in this lunar cycle.
Full Moon in Ashlesha nakshatra will also try to inspire us to go deeper within in order to find our answers. It will try to inspire us to rather withdraw, spend some time in silence or in nature and listen to the voice of our inner wisdom, rather than trying to find our answers through others. It will awaken our dormant intuitive powers. It is most beautiful time for doing a sincere introspection and going deeper into your sadhana or meditation practice, as it may bless you with very deep and profound insights – if you only allow yourself to be sincere with yourself.
Remember: blessings of Ashlesha nakshatra come only to those, who are willing to embrace themselves the way they are. A beautiful time to learn self-acceptance on a deeper level.
LESSONS FROM FULL MOON IN ASHLESHA
HOLD YOUR POISON
It is definitely not a good time period to let all your inner “poisons” out. No matter how strong is the temptation, try to restrain yourself from overflowing others with your emotions, such as bitterness or anger. Don’t flood them with the things that hurt you in the past, either. Remember, everybody will be more sensitive emotionally in this time period – it’s not just you. Externalising your pain might not be the best idea now – rather try to introspect more and understand what the pain is trying to teach you.
CONTROL YOUR TONGUE
Try to be more aware in your speech, too. Consciously practice being more gentle in your words, even if something triggers you. In those time periods, when all of us are more oversensitive than usually, nothing is more precious than conscious practice of kindness. And if you can’t find kindness and compassion within yourself at the moment, rather choose to withdraw and stay silent. Otherwise you may end up saying things which you may regret later.
BE MORE SELECTIVE
In this time period, consciously practice being more selective. More selective about what you allow to affect you. What you allow into your inner space. What you intake or eat. Which people are around you. Which emotions you choose to rule you. Which thoughts you choose to believe. Which words you allow to trigger you. We all will be a bit oversensitive during this time period and quite easily affected by external and internal factors. Choose wisely, what you allow to affect you. Realise, that you have a choice.
GO DEEPER WITHIN
Yet, as challenging as this Full Moon period may seem, it will be very rewarding, too: for it will allow you to look deeper within and find some answers, which you have been looking for. It is time to be sincere with yourselg and to listen to the true voice of your intuition. This is a beautiful time for a sincere introspection and going deeper into your meditation. If you are honest with yourself, it will bless you with wisdom about how you can improve and let go of your weaknesses, as a snake is shedding its skin.
