Full Moon Tuesday October 14, 2008 1:02 pm pacific
The full moon on Tuesday will be in the sign of Pisces, in the nakshatra Revati. Being the last nakshatra in the astrological wheel, Revati is connected to endings and completion. It is translated as "wealthy" and "to transcend," perhaps alluding to its place at the end of the journey through 27 nakshatras. Revati's power is kshiradyanapni shakti, the power of nourishment symbolized by milk. The presiding deity is Pushan, a protector of flocks and herds. According to the Puranas, Pushan is one of the twelve sons of Aditi who was the keeper of the sacred cows of the gods. He protected travelers from bandits and wild beasts, and prevented men from being exploited by other men. Pushan guided his followers towards rich pastures and wealth. Mercury is the ruling planet of Revati, and it is interesting that this full moon occurs as Mercury is about to go stationary direct on 10/15/08 at 1:06 pm. We could certainly use Pushan's protection from the bandits on Wall Street and in Washington. I've posted the Pushan mudra on this page as a remedy to help us through this time period.
In addition to the economic mess that was revealed, or promoted, under this Mercury retrograde period, the internet and UFO world are also buzzing with a prediction of possible alien encounter under this full moon. According to psychic Blossom Goodchild, aliens associated with the Federation of Light will reveal themselves to the earth:
We wish it to be understood that on the 14th day of your month of October in the year 2008 a craft of great size shall be visible within your skies. It shall be in the south of your hemisphere and it shall scan over many of your states.
We give to you the name of Alabama.
It has been decided that we shall remain within your atmosphere for the minimum of three of your twenty four hour periods.
One of the reasons I find the timing of this event to be intriguing is that the chart for the full moon has an ascendant that lines up exactly with the Galactic Center. As I mention in previous posts (7/27/07), this part of the night sky called the Vishnuabhi, Vishnu's navel, is the center from which all galactic life emerged. Planetary alignments with the center usually bring in new evolutionary information to our world. So this full moon is under the influence of this center suggesting that any information received at this time may be significant.
However, we need to keep in mind that some of that information may be not be clear, or may even be disinformation as Mercury's energy is debilitated while retrograde in Virgo. For example, conspiracy circles also talk about a staged alien invasion in which the public may be fooled into believing a holographic light show. When planets station, they become more powerful, and when Mercury goes direct on the following day it will be extremely potent as it is in its sign of exaltation. There may be a surge of information released at that time that is difficult to process. It will take a very discriminating heart to feel and know the truth -- be it about aliens, politics or the economy.
