Moon & its
Importance to Mankind Published on March 20, 2016
As per the famous Ancient Text ‘Purush Sukta’, - Chandrama Manaso Jatah - which means the mind is controlled by the pull of moon and when the Moon size increases or decreases i.e. waxes and wanes, its connection with the mind also fluctuates. Hence, the relationship between the flow of the breath and the lunar days and also the Rise & fall of water level in oceans as per the pull of lunar cycle.
Men who have studied natural phenomena in every age have credited the moon with an influence upon vegetable life, upon animal function and upon psychic activity in human beings. The vibration and the feel of the moon changes as per the size and when it is full, the magnetic pull is also on the peak; the pull of the moon is working upon the surface of the planet which is exposed to the moon. So when there is a natural pull like this, there is a tendency for the energy to flow in a natural upsurge of upward movement in your spinal. Within you, the blood and the Pran – the fundamental life energies, flow in a different way because the vibrations have changed. Similarly the phenomena of High tides in oceans because the gravitational pull of the moon is working on the water maximum on full moon day, your blood is also being pulled and the circulation of blood increases in your brain.
When this upward movement happens, whatever is your quality, get enhanced. You may have heard that people who are mentally unstable, will become more imbalanced on those days because the upsurge in energy enhances whatever is your quality. If you are little imbalanced, it will make you more imbalanced. It is also doing the same to the other qualities in you i.e. if you are meditative, it makes you more meditative. If you are in love, it makes you more passionate lover. Whatever is your quality, it enhances that. Hence It can be easily concluded that Waxing period of moon is favorable to growth or expansion on every plane of existence i.e. Mental, Physical and Spiritual Plane.
We know of the benefits of Shukl Paksh (Waxing Moon) for overall prosperity but Krishn Paksh (Waning Moon) too has same level of significance and is as important as Shukl Paksh.
The negative phase of moon i.e. waning moon corresponds to lessening and decay on every plane and hence this period is not naturally favorable to growth. There are many things in this world in which we do not want growth over time and waning moon is best suitable for such aspects. It’s a great time for deep introspect. Waning moon period is highly beneficial for reaping crops, any kind of surgery, Introspection, extracting honey from Beehive, mental and physical rest for mentally challenged or fickle minded people etc.
People who are extremely moody or fickle minded, finds the period of decreasing moon highly beneficial, more especially if their birth number is 2 or 7 of any month. They feel emotional imbalance, lack of sleep, unable to take decisions, unable to concentrate in study etc in waxing moon period. Hence for such persons, the time of waning moon is highly productive and important. They must handle anything of deep significance, for ex, to take important decisions or whatever which requires brain, in waning moon period only so that magnetic pull of moon can not disturb the mental harmony of theirs. They should plan or analyze everything in waning moon period.
Be Happy and Blessed.
