There will be a New Moon in Chitra nakshatra on October 16th at 12:31pm. Chitra's shakt is the power to do good karma and accumulate merit. It is ruled by Vishwakarma, the celestial architect. This new moon begins a one month cycle that is good for working on being good and doing good. Take a look around you and find ways to help others. This is also a month that promotes creative endeavors, crafts, art and anything connected with beauty or style. That includes activities intended to beautify your home. Chitra means "shining", making the next lunar month a great time for developing a more profound inner awareness, as well as letting the divine light of your own consciousness shine all around you.
