The Full Moon of Feb 27 shines a soothing light that can heal hearts and renew passion for life. This is the auspicious Maghi Purnima, when bathing in the holy river Ganges is said to cleanse karmic debts and fulfill all desires.

The full moon (12:17 am) is in the area of the sky called Purva Phalguni, which is symbolized by a wedding bed or a ripe fruit. A star of fertility and life force energy, Lord Shiva himself, began his marriage procession under this auspicious nakshatra.  Purva Phalguni is also said to be the star of the divine marriage between the Sun (Surya) and Moon (Soma).
