There will be a New Moon in Pushya nakshatra on Thursday, July 28th, at 10:55am pt. A New Moon occurs when the Moon is at its complete point of darkness, where it can once again begin to increase in light. It signifies the beginning of a new lunar month. This lunar month starts on July 28th and ends on August 26th, so the symbolism surrounding the New Moon in Pushya nakshatra will apply to that period of time in some way. Pushya nakshatra is symbolized by the udder of a cow, a symbol of nourishment, food and all auspicious things. The deity of Pushya is Brihaspati the guru or teacher of all the gods, giving it a connection to teachers, professionals, experts and gurus of various kinds. Pushya's shakti (core energy) is the power to create spiritual energy, so it promotes inspiration, higher thinking, and spirituality. Taken together, this is a good month to improve your diet, gain knowledge, teach, or benefit from a professional or a teacher. It is also a good time to create more inspiration and spiritual energy for yourself and for others. The combination of the New Moon in Pushya, occurring on a Thursday, with Jupiter in Pisces, aspecting the Moon, makes it a particularly beneficial New Moon. Although it is not advisable to start important projects on the New Moon day itself, the month that follows the New Moon should be a good one for promoting and supporting most positive endeavors.
