Lyra: Sulaphat: The Tortoise: Music, song and dance.
26.40 Sagittarius to 10 Capricorn (sidereal). / 21 Capricorn to 3 Aquarius (tropical).

Part of Lyra is known as Abijit in Vedic Astrology and is considered very lucky. People influenced by the harp are car dealers; travel agents; government workers; and famous singers such as as Elvis Presley, David Bowie and Rod Stewart.

4 of Pentacles: Lord of Earthly Power: obsessed with material resources.
Hanson Roberts Tarot

Deity: Apollo; the 33 Universal gods and Saint Expedite.

Ruling Planet: Sun.

Lucky gemstone: Ruby

In Vedic Astrology this is the 22nd celestial mansion, Uttarashada.

Ruled by Sun: Gain and safe travel, planting seeds, laying foundations, matters of a permanent nature. Fighting hard for something or being persistent in achieving a goal.

Characteristics: Obedient, polite, popular, grateful, handsome, happy, honorable, religious, have many friends, fond of large animals. Will work hard for material success. Business minded with a tendency to hoard because of past losses.

NEW MOON IN LYRA: Things happen fast, time is sped up; issues with vehicles, licencing, and working for the collective good.

Every Celestial Mansion has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. For example, the time is good for taking responsibility and doing the right thing.  A good time for introspection. Take action towards bettering your life and making money. Today can either be sensual and lustful or present problems with sexual organs, for example period pain.  The warnings today are against acting impulsive and being distracted by jealousy. Vibrate love to attract good things into your life. 
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.

Rulers: Sun  (get up and go; lets become powerful) and 10 Universal Powers.

Energy Vibration: This energy is strongly Sagittarius. Combine spiritual and material aspirations for everyone's benefit. Support others and be supported, value others and be valued (Levacy, [p231). This energy is both sexy and hard working. Be honest and sincere and maintain high moral standards and people will respect your opinions. A good day for working with animals. Good for safe travel, agriculture, business, planting trees, crops and flowers, carpentry, learning, ceremonies, starting things from which permanent results are required. A good time to take responsibility for yourself, your actions and for others.

Step into Magic: 
Write 10 wishes on a paper and burn it. A good time for sex magic and to set new long term goals.

Elephant, grey as a mouse, big as a house, nose like a snake, I make the earth shake. - JR Tolkin.
Tusk: Penetrating Power - intellectually and sexually. Penetrating insight. Will understand and experience everything deeply. Being sensual, lustful and enjoying sex.
Trunk - strength to uproot a tree as well as finesse to pick up a needle.

Lyra's Motto: True victory cannot be had by any weapon or strategy that neglects morality. Without morality our victories quickly undo themselves. Your good morals are your truest strength and on this strength you can become victorious. The Sun lends leadership potential to conquer all and obtain Ultimate Victory on the strength of a righteous character.

Time to be introspective and penetrative. A good time to be intellectual and sort out things to do with education.  People may be more responsible and helpful now.

Key Word for Lyra: Responsibility.

Tarot Card: 
4 of pentacles - the natural ability to acquire influence, money and power. 

Ascended Master / Guardian Angel:
Ganesha: Bestows wisdom and wealth.

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.
