since long time, i am observing how people behave towards fullmoon and newmoon.
for this i categorized people into 2.
ones with strong moon(shukla paksha waxing moon) and in benefic houses/rasis.
and the others with weak moon.
i felt that people with strong moons behaved rather over enthusiastic and irrational during fullmoons and very cool and logical during new moons.
reg people with weak moons, fullmoon period was good for them and new moons were depressing or generating ill health.
new moon or amavasya has been considered very auspicious time by tantrics since it gives more focus for the practice.
whenever atma which is indicated by Sun, mind, indicated by moon and intellect indicated by mercury comes together, it opens a grand frame for self enquiry.
if we have the capability to do it or not will have to be seen from the blessings of Jupiter, initiative of mars and patience and perseverance of saturn. And, of course, no distractions from venus.
