☼ Saka Dawa Full Moon __/❤\__ Friday 13th June ~>

Saka Dawa Düchen
☆•*¨*•.¸¸☾ KARMA MULTIPLIED X 100 MILLION! ☽¸¸.•*¨*•☆

The effects of actions, good or bad, are multiplied during Saka Dawa, when Himalayan Buddhists celebrate the birth, enlightenment and paranirvana of Gautama Sakyamuni Buddha, with the truth-seeking Sagittarius Full Moon which, at 22 degrees in the sign of the Archer, exact Friday June 13th at 4:11UT.

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” Buddha _/\_....

☼ ♊ ~> ☽ ♐ ~> Wisdom-seeking Sagittarius is the inspirational sign of honesty and integrity, as’ The Archer’ aims his arrow high in search of freedom and greater knowledge. There’s no time like the present for illumination. Now the adventurous Moon is opposite Spirit Sun in communicative Gemini, there’s a potential immediacy seeing life's journey as karmic lessons towards self-realization, which can come in an instant. Aligning Spirit with the intuitive soul as one's life's purpose activates special insight and the wisdom-eye's ability to perceive clarity from confusion is heightened.

Mercury retrograde also currently asks us to determine healthy emotion from habitual sentimentality, as well as fact from fiction, magic from awe, so that personal (and collective) karmic obscuration can be reprogrammed, resolved and removed. This Full Moon also pinpoints and determines old wounds which may be tricky to cure – either the right diagnosis is yet to be made or the holistic healing view is not fully understood, in which case be patient and give yourself time.

‘The Lights’ also focus upon devotion to our sacred interconnections, to family and friends, and the abundant healing power of the Earth and spiritual teachers, making this a great time to practice. So these next few days may well be filled with ‘Ah-Ha’ moments that come about from observing the heart-mind's ability to blossom in creativity and truth – especially seeing the light when we take refuge in the Buddha’s teachings of glorious ethical goodness.

Wishing One and all a very happy triple XXX Solar Flare illumination Saka Dawa Düchen, may the shining LoveLight benefit of all beings.

Saka Dawa Guru Rinpoche Day ~> breathing the Love-Light

June 8th
☼ ♊ ~ △ ~ ☾ ♎
Staying on center, taking care of self (and family), and finding the balance within makes it easier to deal with tricky encounters. With Sun in quicksilver Gemini stimulating the mind, and the reflective Moon in harmonious Libra, ‘The Lights’ now illuminate the intellectual Air element, suggesting it’s time to skilfully influence and balance our thoughts. One of the fastest ways to harness the constantly moving mind is through breathing, as the ancient teachings tell us 'breath is mind's vehicle to Spirit'. Consciously working with the breath soothes the heart-mind to restrain negative emotions, as well as maintaining internal harmony by clearing emotional or psychic knots within the subtle body.

With the Moon next to Mars fiery emotions can quickly rise – and exhaust. While it’s true passion can energize, anger depletes positive karma in one fell swoop. Struggling with aggression or other negative emotions which eat into the bank of karmic merit is unnecessary when you can positively motivate and energize by taking two minutes out of the day to concentrate upon breathing: Doing so quickly calms and controls the chattering monkey mind, increases vitality and focus, and generates an inner peace that relaxes both mind AND body. And it’s so easy to instantly tune into the natural conscious intelligence that surrounds us and imbibe ‘prana’, the universal holy life force of ‘Air’ ~> Go now, find a comfortable spot where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes: Breathe in for the count of 5, hold for 5 and exhale for 5…

…and note how much more in your flow you can become.

In the approach to the Karma-Multiplied Full Sagittarius, wisdom-seeking Moon, today (Sunday) is also the day in my spiritual tradition that we honor the holy Lama (within), who is laden with good qualities.

With courageous Mars next to the Moon also suggests we can bravely acknowledge how to manage our lives to live in peace and harmony, specifically by walking the Dharma path, putting the Buddha’s teachings into practice. __/\__

Medicine Buddha ~ Tara Moon ~> June 5th/6th __/❤\__ Sacred Star


There are times when the heavens specifically concentrate upon certain energies. This First Quarter Moon with the Gemini Sun and Virgo Moon is such a time, as the emphasis of ‘The Lights’, Sun and Moon, spotlight healing of all kinds: physical, mental and spiritual.

Be aware of the mind’s ability to influence progress, remaining positive is crucial to the speed of recovery. Try not to wallow in any mire, focus instead up that which brings joy. Quicksilver Gemini Sun is still conjunct healing asteroid Hygeia, who was wife/aid to Aesculapius, the father of our modern medicine, accenting the call for swift solutions (though to be fair, family/media issues may be slowed by Mercury retrograde, starting 7th June for three weeks); The Sun in hard aspect to thoughtful and considerate Virgo Moon suggests having the ability to change course and think quickly, even whilst on the move.

This profoundly healing Moon phase also configures the enchanting six-pointed Grand Sextile, a sacred star formation connecting a stabilizing Earth Trine with the deeply intuitive current Water Trine. Though this beautiful star formation is fleeting, indeed, it will be waning tomorrow, the celestial energy for 5th and 6th June is still very much geared towards overcoming obstacles by being both, realistic AND magical. En route to the karma multiplied Saka Dawa Full Moon on the 13th, now is the time for helpful visualization and practical application to any problem. So keep in the mind's eye an end image, and be prepared to move fast to apply speedy solutions to any issue, no matter how big or small the difficulty might seem.

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Buddha
