Vedic Astrologer: New Moon - Going Negative or Positive?

The new moon of Sept 30, 2016 (8:11 pm) will shine a ray of hope through darkness. This new moon awakens our inner guidance system and plants a seed of healing light into the shadows of old wounds. Call on the quiet power of this new moon to regenerate your self-confidence and realign with a healthy sense of clarity and purpose. The new moon will fall in the area of the sky known as Hasta nakshatra - "the hand of god." Hasta channels the brilliant light of Savitur, the Hindu deity of the dawn. Each morning, as the sun rises, Savitur breaks the darkness of night. His solar energy awakens consciousness on our planet and impels us into action. The power of the rising sun is beaming through the haze of the subconscious night on this new moon, offering inner clarity and radiating insight for all those who inquire.

Savitur - Sun god of the Rig Veda.

The close proximity of expansive Jupiter in sidereal Virgo gives this new moon an extra dose of healing inspiration. It promotes interest in changing diet and lifestyle and opens opportunities for supportive self-care. Take a moment to tune into your body and listen to its subtle messages. Could you improve some of your daily habits? Do you take enough time to slow down and organize your thoughts? Hasta is a nakshatra that empowers us with the clarity to organize and complete small and unfinished details in our lives. This is also the first new moon of autumn (for those in the northern hemisphere.) This means that the sun is naturally losing power as the days shorten and the nights grow longer. Feeling depleted of energy is entirely possible; and for some, this new moon could trigger the deceptive and untrusting dark side of Hasta’s influence.
