Regardless of your rising sign, there will be an underlying energy to this full Moon associated with relationships. Libra is the sign most connected to L-O-V-E, relationships (business and personal) and harmony.

Full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra

Chitra : The Bright One Star: Spica Symbol: Jewels or a Pearl Deity: Tvastar Energy: The shakti/power to Accumulate Good Karma

The lunar mansion of Chitra imparts a soft energy to this full Moon phase.

Chitra nakshatra energy is supportive for the following:

▪ Music ▪ Arts ▪ Design ▪ Engineering ▪ Marriage ▪ Sculpting ▪ Laying foundations ▪ Breaking ground ▪ Travel

Tvashtar is the the ultimate Celestial Architect and master of design and creation. For the formidable Indra, Tvashtar created a Vajra (weapon used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force).

Doing tasks or creative works that involves using your hands is extremely well supported during this full Moon. Make a mala, do some sculpting, create some digital designs, make some jewelry or design something!

Full Moon Intention
"I am protected by the divine at all times and in all things. My mind is infused with peace with each breath I take. I am filled with endless possibilities and great inner strength and heart centered courage." Pamela

For those who are familiar with powerful and super protective monkey-god Hanuman, this full Moon phase is a very important time to honor and call on Hanuman for protection, courage, strength and peace of mind.

"Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor - the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant "To speak one's mind by telling all one's heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences -- good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as "ordinary courage." Brené Brown.

It is said that Hanuman was born on the full Moon, during Chitra nakshatra. He is often depicted wearing pearls, which are one of the symbols of Chitra nakshatra. Hanuman is also shown with his heart open, with Rama and Sita residing in his heart. <3

It is a great time to listen to the Hanuman Chalisa or chant the mantra and set your intentions accordingly. Here is a link to my absolute favorite Chalisa! So beautiful and calming!

Full Moon in Libra: Ritual Timing

Rose Quartz crystals are powerful heart openers. They can amplify loving energy in relationships, helping to restore peace and equanimity. This magical crystal can also support the emotional healing of the heart. Use this crystal to release emotions and grief.

Set your intentions during these times, especially as they relate to your horoscope forecast for this full Moon energy (forecast is here).
