Full Moon of February 10th
This upcoming Full Moon will be unique. The reason is 50% of the planets in our solar system are aligned to the Full Moon in Leo. That makes it an extra special day.
Buddhist meditators have two benefits from their practice. One is Quietude Meditation (Shamata) and the second is Contemplative Meditations. These two increase our stability and self-confidence. Quietude Meditations keep us in touch with ourselves. We are relaxed and at peace with ourselves. We know how we are feeling and thinking. Contemplative Meditations give us context. We know what is important and what is not important. Where to put emphasis in our lives.
This coming February 10th has Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and the Sun all harmoniously aspected to the Full Moon. Those are all the largest and most influential planets of our solar system. Jupiter stimulates positive feelings, Saturn contemplativeness, Uranus spontaneity, and the Sun, self-confidence. This Full Moon is a blessing for powerful decisions and actions. We don’t always have beneficial aspects from astrology to add to our daily lives. Think of it in terms of 50% of our solar system is supportive of all positive actions. If we initiate some special project or action on that day, the blessing will actually carry over to the conclusion of the project. If nothing else I would suggest one take the 8 Mahayana Precepts or do a special meditation on Love and Compassion. Try to do 10,000 mantras of OM MANI PADME HUM or a similar mantra. Remember your motivation is the creator of the karma and so don’t just do the action, reflect on your motivation first and then start the action.

Have a wonderful day,
