New Moon in Magha Nakshatra

Magha: The Star of the Power Primary Star: Regulus Symbol: Royal Throne Deity: the Pitris Energy: Intense/Fierce Shakti: The shakti/power to leave the body

The lunar mansion of Magha imparts an intense energy to this new Moon!

Magha is not a particularly good nakshatra for new Moon beginnings, however, if we heed the wisdom of our ancestors, it can be supportive for some new beginnings that do not include major life changes such as forming a new business or buying a home, etc. If practical, wait until August 31, after 1:38 am PDT for important new beginnings. You can set your intentions during the new Moon, just start your beginnings on August 31.

Magha nakshatra energy supports:

▪ Honoring our departed ancestors ▪ Studying ancient wisdom traditions ▪ Conducting genealogical research ▪ Writing historical articles or books ▪ Asking for preferential treatment from people in authority

New Moon Intention

“Today I honor my departed ancestors and the wisdom of the gurus of my teacher's past and present.

I honor the elderly by respecting them as we will want to be respected when we are elderly."
