New Moon in Cancer August 15/16, 2023

The next new Moon happens on August 16 at 9.38 am UTC 29 deg 06 Cancer, Ashlesha Nakshatra, Pisces Navamsha. It is close to the Cancer-Leo Gandanta.

No matter how many times people are told to go deep to understand their feelings, it seems complicated for people to go beyond the fact that the situation was just too difficult for them. When we go one step further and fully feel what was the reason we thought it was difficult for us, we will start seeing the “difficult” scenario that we have created for ourselves.

For example, a person who grew up without a mother’s love may feel how “hard” it is to be around a woman who does not give love. He or she may feel how “hard” it is for him/her to be bullied. Or a person who grew up in an environment with little money may feel how “hard” it is for him/her to have little income. But if we get to realise that those situations exist only to make us understand our emotional pattern, the emotional swings may be reduced, and we may be able to make our choices wisely.

Rainfall is necessary because it cleanses and helps plants to grow. But when it becomes like a typhoon, as it is now in Japan or some other countries, it can also cause damage. If we understand our emotions, there will be less damage, but if the swings are too important, we will not be able to control them.

This is a new moon to be aware of such things. Om Shanti.
