Shravana Purnima: An Auspicious August Moon in Capricorn (2023).


In this auspicious month known as Purushottam Maas (Purushottam being another name for Lord Vishnu) Moon will be full on August 1st, in Makara rashi, Capricorn, in the nakshatra of Shravana, also ruled by Vishnu, the one who sustains dharma.

Shani Dev’s influence is strong, as Saturn is the planetary lord of Makara rashi; Sun is also in Saturn-ruled Pushya, so there is a determination and strength building at this sensitive yet intense time.

How will you use your inner light - this nourishing light of dharma that connects us to everything?

What are you hearing on a deeper level within yourself, within relationships and work life?

In the external world, make sure you’re learning from teachings that come from a methodology and structure that has survived the tests of time, and that have proven to provide a positive transformation for the highest good of all. This foundation of a trusted source will enhance your personal power.

Wherever challenges are surfacing right now, this star of inner listening and learning is asking us to slow down and bring awareness to issues through more stillness and silence. Use your discernment to clear away hurdles to step more firmly on your authentic path where you’re focussing on the right things, at the right time, through the correct systems of knowledge.

Purushottam Maas (also called Adhik Maas) is a great month to fast, to perform good deeds (punyam) and to do shatkarmas (cleansing practices), thereby enhancing bhakti towards one’s true path, one’s dharma, and ultimately, towards Maha Vishnu, the Supersoul.
