Full Moons and Their Spiritual Effects on Humans – Part III (Final)

 

Effect based on illumi – nation or phase of the moon
On new moon day, the non-illuminated, i.e. dark side of the Moon faces towards Earth. Darkness emanates Raja-Tama predominant frequencies. Hence compared to when the illuminated side faces Earth, more subtle basic Raja-Tama predominant frequencies are transmitted towards Earth.Alternatively, on a full moon day there is a decrease in the Raja-Tama because of the increased illumination. However on a full moon day as the moon frequencies are more active, a heightened activity of the mind is observed. Depending on the types of impressions from the sub-conscious mind that are activated, the heightened activity can range from heightened random thoughts to heightened mind activity of specific thoughts. It is also possible to awaken thoughts about Spirituality that lie inert in the sub-conscious mind of a spiritual person by taking advantage of the heightened mind activity and by increasing spiritual practice on a full moon day.
Consequences of increased effect of full moon and new moon on humans
On new moon days, when the Raja-Tama spreading negative energies are heightened, people engaged in occult rituals and predominantly rājasik and tāmasik people are strongly influenced and receive black energy for their Raja-Tama activities. As it is a day conducive for negative activities, it is considered an inauspicious day for any positive activities. As the Raja-Tamafrom the moon affects the mind, the incidence of Raja-Tama tendencies like running away, suicide or possession by negative forces is highest on new moon. Especially during the night, as the otherwise naturally available purification by the Absolute Cosmic Fire Principle (Tējtattva) through the Sun being absent, new moon night is a golden opportunity for the negative forcesto cause distress to man. Negative forces take advantage of the rise in Raja-Tama to amass black energy that is used to orchestrate events.
On a full moon night, as the illuminated side of the moon faces Earth, minimal subtle basic Raja-Tama is transmitted on this night compared to other nights. Hence on this night minimal Raja-Tama energy is available for negative forces, Raja-Tama predominant people or practitioners of occult rituals.
Spiritual research has further revealed that there are some finer differences between the effect of new moon and full moon on man. Overall the distressing effect of the moon on man is more on new moon than on full moon. The adverse effect of full moon is more on the physical or gross body whereas that of new moon is more on the mind. The effect of full moon is more apparent whereas the effect on new moon is more intangible (subtle). As the effect of new moon is not apparent to the person, it is even more dangerous. This is because as he is not aware of the distress, no step is taken to overcome it.
Between new moon and full moon the effects of new moon are less noticeable to us. However the negative effect is more on new moon. The reason for this is that on new moon the effect on man is more at a subtle-level as opposed to the full moon where one is aware of the increase in thoughts.
What can we do to protect ourselves from any harmful effects?
Since the harmful effect of the new and full moon is due to a spiritual reason, only spiritual remedies or spiritual practice can help in giving protection.At a worldly level, it is best to avoid taking important decisions or buying-selling on these days as negative forces can affect through these media. Increase the quantity and quality of spiritual practice from 2 days prior to and continue for 2 days after full moon and new moon days.
It is also beneficial to chant Name of God as per religion. During the waning phase of the moon, i.e. the period between full moon day and new moon day, as the size of the moon progressively reduces, the subtle basic Raja-Tama frequencies emanating from it progressively rise. This is because the darker side of the moon progressively increases. Hence to protect oneself from the adverse influence of this enhanced Raja-Tama, it is important that we step up our spiritual practice during this period.During the waxing phase of the moon, we should at least try to stabilize the increased efforts we had put in, in the earlier fortnight. This is so that we can again renew our efforts at enhanced spiritual practice in the next waning phase of the moon.
