Diwali: Libra: Sun-Moon conjunction: New Moon




Festival of Lights - like Halloween and Guy Fawkes day it is a time to burn candles, display flowers, dress up in fancy new clothes and hand out sweets and gifts. It is a celebration of life over death and light over darkness. The main spiritual meaning is to let your inner light shine. It also signifies the end of a cycle and the start of a new cycle. These festivals (Diwali, Halloween & Guy Fawkes) celebrate the victory of good over evil and of knowledge over ignorance.



The reason why the veil between our world and the spirit world is thin at this time is because the Sun is  moving through the Libra Archway. This Archway signifies the passage from this life to the after life. However, this is also the Archway of Love and Marriage.









 “ To be a star, you must Shine your own light, follow your own path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars Shine brightest. ”   ~   Napoleon Hill


On this day Lakshmi (Venus) emerges from the Ocean of Milk to bless those who invoke her with wealth, prosperity and blessings. Lakshmi is in a benevolent mood, and blesses her followers with mental, physical and material well-being. On this day "Lakshmi (Venus) energy" enters the Universe.  This brings the energy of five Angels or Ascended Masters:  Lakshmi: Venus energy of love and money; Vishnu: Happiness;  Kubera: Wealth to those who are generous;  Indra: Opulence;  Gajendra: Carries the wealth;  Saraswati: Knowledge.

Lakshmi is invoked by lighting candles, burning incense, handing out sweets and dressing up in new clothes.
The best way to invoke Lakshmi is to fast every Friday (Venus day) and to fast for the month preceding Diwali by eating only fruit, vegetables and water.

The Sun and Moon are in the 16th Mansion / Galaxy: Zubenelgenubi - Lover's Archway in Libra

I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolises for all to follow and enjoy.

Marker Star: Libra's South-Pan: Zubenelgenubi: Star of Purpose16° - 29°20' Scorpio
'If Music be the Food of Love, play on' - 12th Night - Shakespeare.



The Moon is lying close to Juno, the love centaur (Cupid).
 Moon conjuncts the North Node (amplifies) Juno (love). However it can also cause bad temper.
Moon conjuncts Sun - focus on making positive changes.

Symbol: Triumph Arch - The Archway between this world and the other side (life and death).
The Archway is also the wedding archway. The Libra Archway is also the reason why a kiss under an archway (doorway) is magical and seals love, and the reason why a marriage is only legal under a roof (archway).

Rules: Decorated Gateways, archways, potter-wheels, lions, gifts, balance and relationships. It also rules cotton fields and nipples.

Ruled by: Jupiter, Indra (the Powerful) and Agni (Fire God).

Enhanced Energy Today: Love, balance, harmony, law, order and spirituality. Be courageous and follow your passion. Preparing a creative field to harvest the benefits within the proper time. 

The two main stars of this constellation are: 

1. Zubeneschamali, the north-pan of the Libra which means 'price received' (benevolent). 

2. Zubenelgenubi, the south-pan of Libra (claw of the scorpion) which means 'price to be paid' (malevolent). 

This describes the constant struggle between good (god) and evil (devil). 


Light Energy: When the moon visits this Mansion it is a good time to be assertive.  When we are courageous and assertive it makes us powerful beyond measure.  It demands respect and builds strength of character.  It is a good time to get rid of all unwanted things.  Throw out all the old stuff and clothes that are no longer needed.  Put an end to bad habits and energy patterns that are no longer useful.   You may be called on to be the mediator between two parties who disagree.  You will have to take the scorpion by the claw, tell it as it is, address issues by the name and point out what is wrong and what is right.  Today is also a good day for legal and medical advice. It is time to step up to your life's purpose without delay, hesitation or compromise. If you don't know your purpose, follow your passion, it will lead you straight to your life's purpose. Today is also a good day for L O V E, romance, flowers, chocolates, champagne, sushi and whatever it takes to spoil yourself. A good day to buy merchandise for later profit. 

Dark Energy: I see a bad moon rising: Double Trouble! Domestic violence, miscarriage of justice, psychotic killings! This is not a good day for travel and also warns us against violence, crime, disgrace, disease and poison.

Manifest Magic and Miracles: Work for justice, fairness, balance, harmony, courage, strength and to sort out differences between people. Do a love and romance spell and remember to include flowers, candles, champagne, chocolates, fragrance and rose quartz. Burn Camphor to form a protective smoke.

Magic in the Bible: Read out loud psalm 20 for justice; psalm 39 for courage to confront and sort out problems; psalm 91 for protection.


Zubenels: Best served as a Chinese Dish - 'Sweet and Sour'. They may appear sweet but if you cross them, you will discover the 'sour' side. They courageously fight for what they believe to be right.They are the mediators and balance keepers of the world. They can be aggressive in their approach. They always think about the repercussions of their actions or else are made to face it. They are not ones for long drawn out scenario's, but rather want to cut the crap and get to the point. They are calm, righteous, honest and believe in a Supreme Power and in Karma. They are the peacemakers, diplomats, negotiators, scientists, pilots, militants, attorneys, law- and book keepers of this world. They know how to make the scales (books) balance. They have the inner strength of a lion and people sense it about them. They are well respected. They need love and romance and people's approval, failing which they become bitter and resentful. They marry young and need a partner to maintain their inner balance. They need to look after their health. The Scorpion's claw can be used for love making or for destroying its prey. It does not let go until satisfied and they get confused as to which one of these acts they are busy with.. Blessed with good looks, gracefulness and eloquent speech. They are intuitive, patient, enduring valiant, victorious and winners. But on the dark side they can be mean, cruel, revengeful, unforgiving, jealous, miserly, violent, quarrelsome and make people's lives a living hell. Can judge others harshly and viciously destroy their enemy, yet be kind to them afterwards. They don't need to enforce either religion or law. Those around them just know, watch your step and pray! Check the placement of Zubenelgenubi in your birth chart to see which area of your life is influenced by it.

Lunar Zodiac: Earth is surrounded by the Zodiac band of 360 degrees.  The zodiac band is usually divided into 27 sections (mansions or constellations) of 13.2 degrees.  Whenever a planet moves through these mansions they radiate the energy of the particular mansion they are visiting.  These energy vibrations influence us on a subconscious level.  The Moon completes its wobbly trajectory around the earth in 27.32 days (a sidereal month).  The Moon is the closest planet (satellite) to earth and exerts the most energy on us (evident in the tides of the ocean).  Each individual will experience the daily energy in a different way as we are all unique.  For example if the energy involves travelling, one person might travel to another country while another may just travel a bit more than usual.  Pathological behaviour has been attributed to the moon, thus the term luna-tic.  Instead of reacting to this energy, it can be harnessed to benefit us in a positive way.  Take note of how the moon affects your energy and manifestations, and use it to your advantage.  Each of these 27 (2 + 7 = 9) mansion are divided into 4 quadrants. 27 x 4 gives 108 prayer beads. 108 Holy Names, 108 prayers, 108 repetitions. 108 = 1 + 8 = 9 the powerful and magic number. Add any multiple of 9 and you will still get 9.
