An Auspicious First Full Moon of the 2017 Lunar Year But We Need to Keep Ourselves Protected Because of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse!

Tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 or the 15th day of first lunar month of the year 2017 (Year of the Fire Rooster) is an auspicious day except for people born under the sign of the Pig, which is actually their ‘conflict’ day.

Anyway, tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 (15th day of the Lunar Month of 2017) is the first full – moon day of the lunar year. On that day, you can invoke the help of the God of Joy and God of Wealth. By making a simple ritual.

Before 9AM, you should face northeast, where the God of Joy is said to be on that day, light some incense and simply say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner. Then face south, which is where the God of Wealth is then light some incense, then say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner.

Note: Use red incense sticks. 3 sticks will do. The incense burner can be a small bowl filled with salt or rice. You can still use the rice for cooking but the salt should be thrown away.

Sincerely doing good things tomorrow will double the merit for good karma or blessings.

However, tomorrow we will also have the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This is an eclipse when the Earth’s shadow will block part of the sun’s ray from reaching the moon, thus making the moon slightly darken than usual. This is an inauspicious event, and in a way it serves as a warning to us that this year’s bad energies will come mostly from Earth, meaning those are manmade. However, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse may also bring in some energy, so it is better to be indoors when it happens. This particular eclipse is not as bad as other eclipse in the sense that it doesn’t completely block out the borrowed yang energy (light) of the moon from the sun, but it will still have some bad effect, so those people who have a somewhat bad forecast this year should absolutely be indoors when this happens.

Note: Most of you, especially if you practice Feng Shui, you would know that any eclipse will have some negative effects because it is when the Yin wins over the Yang!

It is also best to keep your lights open and if possible wear your amulets. I for one, whenever there is an eclipse, I always make sure that I’m protected and have my Vajrapani Ruel with me.
