The moon will be new on Monday, January 31 at 9:46 PM Pacific time, so right now we are in the approaching the darkest lunar day, known as Amavasya in Sanskrit.
This particular amavasya is known as Mauni amavasya. The word 'mauni' or 'mauna' signifies silence, therefore on this day, it is suggested to remain silent and remain in prayer or meditation.
As Mercury is retrograde as well, limiting communications, especially delicate ones, may be prudent at this time, even if you can't remain completely silent. It is an ideal time for going inward with spiritual practices and meditation, and taking a cleansing/purifying bath in sacred water. Even a bath or shower in one's own home with essential oils would be good. Intention is everything!!
Saturn is also with sun/moon at this time, adding to a sense of pressure and constriction of life energy.
The lunar mansion of this new moon is Sravana, which bestows the shakti or divine feminine power to connect, also related to communication. It is symbolized by three footprints.
The legend of this lunar mansion involves a form of Vishnu, who is all-pervading and reestablishes harmony and order to the universe. He encodes cosmic law by imprinting it on the universe.
When the king of the demons had conquered all three worlds - the underworld, earth, and heaven - all pervading Vishnu manifested as a dwarf and tricked the demon king into giving him the three worlds back. He did this by asking the demon king for three paces of land, and then covering all three worlds in those three steps, thereby restoring righteousness and order.
It is therefore an excellent time to work with our own inner demons/disturbing emotions through invoking the all pervasive energy of spacious spiritual reality.
