7th, September 2021
The September New Moon takes place on 7th at 6.21AM IST in sidereal Leo in Purva Phalguni Nakshatra. If you are in the US, it will be at 8.51PM EDT on September 6th.
A new Moon is the first primary Moon phase occurring at the moment when the Sun and Moon are aligned, with the Sun and Earth on opposite sides of the Moon. The new moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and often brings with it an array of new beginnings.
Write down and reflect on all that has happened in the past lunar cycle and set intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle.
Purva Phalguni nakshatra is about rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. A placement symbolized by a bed or hammock and representing ease, playfulness, flow, and free expression of the body, including sexual relations. It is the power of love and attraction and is associated with Baga, the God that protects marriage and gives marital bliss, good fortune, and prosperity.
We all need to learn how to relax, rest and receive so that we can fully embody our gifts and do what we are meant to do in the world. The Sun is in its own house, where its foundation is solid. Here it is truly comfortable, and it is able to give empowered effects. Alongside of the Sun, three other planets are in signs that they govern. These are Mercury in Virgo, Venus in Libra, and Saturn in Capricorn.
This is a time for perfecting skills, structured communications, and creative expression. This influence is good for activities connected to music, dance, art, writing and other creative pursuits. Collectively, this is likely to be a time when there is a leap in the amount of travel.
The slow-moving planets Jupiter and Saturn reflect a theme of a merging of business and pleasure. Jupiter encourages a positive pull towards human connection and the company of others. Industrious Saturn brings an effort towards set goals with tenacity and an intention to improve one’s current situation.
This New Moon is an ideal time for get togethers, family gatherings, restful getaways, and planning social events.
