The first new moon of the year falls on an exciting crossroads according to the famous astrologer in Kolkata. Saturn has just moved into Sagittarius and it is the new year of the fire rooster. Primarily this is a very passionate and extraordinary year. The new moon in Capricorn or Shravana always reminds us to lay down some longer range practical goals and to pay attention to your ability to listen up.
This sign is ruled by Saturn so it is appropriate for the moment according to the famous astrologer of Kolkata. Saturn is the purveyor of karma. Sorry, but pretty much all of us are born with some karma. There certainly is the odd enlightened child that is born completely free, but that is the exception. The good news is that we have a way to work off our karma. The best thing is to adopt the praise of yoga. Really? Yes!
You can get happy when you learn that you can actually work off the dark energy that is stuck to your soul by going to a regular yoga class. Forsure you have to get involved in your yoga for this energetic transference to occur. You have to sweat, and you have to pray or meditate whatever you want to call it. We are not talking about mindless yoga, we are talking about yoga with purpose. A yoga practise will, in time, shift you. All of you reading this know what I am talking about.
See what happens if you do at least an hour of focused yoga 5 days a week. You will change and your life will change. Why? Because you have worked off some of your karma. Over time you will feel so much better that you can become more focused on your dharma. Your dharma is what you do now. If you are conscious enough, you will not create any more difficult karma for yourself.
There are other ways to burn off your karma. You can attract experiences that cause you to suffer and in the suffering develop the qualities of forgiveness and compassion. You can do seva, which is selfless giving, or charity. We are not talking about the 2nd chakra charity that is done to add to your social ranking and resume, but the kind that comes from your heart and does not have to have a number attached to it.
A new moon is always a new beginning. Capricorn is about taking a practical non extreme approach. Set reasonable goals.
The nakshatra of this new moon is sweet Shravana. We have 2 eyes, ears and one mouth. This is a sign that people are meant to observe and listen more than we speak. People with a strong presence of Shravana in their charts often have super hearing quality. The new moon gain more awareness according to the famous astrologer in India.
