New Moon in Jyestha

New Moon in Jyestha

There will be a new moon, in Jyestha nakshatra, on Tuesday, December 12th, at 3:32 p.m. PT. Jyestha is ruled by Indra, the king of the gods. Its shakti is the power to rise, overcome and conquer. Its basis above is to attack and its basis below is to defend. Its desire is to gain supremacy among the gods. In mythology, Indra once had a great battle with Vritra, the king of the demons. During the battle, Vritra swallowed Indra, along with his entire army. In his darkest hour, when all seemed lost, Indra drew his sword and cut his way out of the belly of the demon. For this reason, Jyestha symbolizes military leadership, battles, and even the idea of coming back from defeat. On the global level, it is hard to miss the emphasis on military symbology with this new moon, so there might be surges in various conflicts during the lunar month, especially during the period for one week one either side of December, 22nd.

The new moon is the beginning of the lunar month, so the period from this new moon until the next one, on January 11th, will be a period that favors business and ambitious pursuits. If you own a business, it is a time for mustering your energy and your resources and maximizing productivity. Mercury will be retrograde for most of the lunar month, so it is better for fixing and improving your business than for starting new ventures. If you are not a business owner, this can be a good time for making an effort and working hard. Saturn is aspecting the new moon from Aquarius, so it will be necessary to be patient, focused, and willing to correct any mistakes as you go. In personal relationships, this is a good time to avoid conflict. It is better to be the humble servant of your loved ones and friends, than to be a commanding general.
