Thursday 5 September 2013 – Jupiter
Moon Phase – New Moon Moon is in Virgo
Lunar Day 30 (begins at 06:22 BST & ends at 12:35 BST)
An exceptionally auspicious day, which, unfortunately, does not happen every lunar month. It favours all beginnings, and helps the sick to recuperate and improve. It also favours a successful, smooth ending to all matters which have reached their final stage. It is important to be generous, and to recognise and reward everyone’s contribution.
The day is very good and successful for starting new important activities, for new undertakings. A child born then can have limited mental abilities on one or another reason. The one who will fall ill can only be saved by an immediate help from the outside, from someone else. Dreams promise a lot of joy and should be fulfilled.
Symbol – the golden swan. The day of love, forgiveness, penance, rejection of everything unneeded, accepting a spiritual initiation and transition onto the next cycle of development. One should analyze one’s path and try to wipe out all sins. It is good to complete activities, to return debts, to give joy to other people. One can work with stones, clean the house, in particular by bringing in talismans, like horseshoe. Food should not be rough. This is the day of sacrifice and summarizing the past month. A barking dog is a warning about a mistake done in the past month.
Lunar Day 1 (Begins at 12:36 BST)
A day for making plans and ‘symbolic beginnings’. Do not push forward too actively in a new direction while the Moon is still invisible in the sky. Instead, try to prioritise the activity which you know will be important for you during the coming month.
Sit down at the table and work out what needs to be done. Draw up a plan and take the very first step forward. There will be other days for everything else.
One should devote the first day to everything that elevates the spirit. This is a day of happiness, it is most favourable for any new beginning. The child born on this day, as a rule, will live to an extreme old age. If someone will fall ill on this day, the illness can become lengthy but he will recover. Dreams are to happiness.
Symbols: the lantern, the lamp, the altar of Hecate, Pallas Athena. This lunar day is unfavourable for group work. It is necessary to return to basics, to remember your childhood, to read a book on the history of your nation, to analyze the past path. The day of creative ideas. It is as if specially designed to work with mental energy, with mental images.
As a rule, one should not start anything on this day, only plan. In the medical respect, the first lunar day is related to the brain and the facial part of the head. One should not over-exert on this day, should not drink alcohol or eat too hot or too spicy food. Physiologically, this is a difficult day, it tightens the internal organs.
Those who were born on this day are always awaiting for something great. They can spend like this the whole of their life and never get their stellar hour. Sometimes it dawns at them and they perform a feat. They must involve themselves into an activity suddenly and brightly.
On this day, one should wear diamonds and rock crystal.
