The Chitra Full Moon on May 8.

The Moon represents our moods. The waxing and waning moon signifies the highs and lows that we experience everyday. The full Moon represents completeness and fulfillment. Any prayers on that particular day specifically for money related or material aspects will be granted immediately. While the New Moon represents the stillness and calmness, the Full Moon represents vibrancy and dynamism. You receive maximum support for all your wordly pursuits on the Full Moon day.
Of all the Full Moon days, there is one Full Moon which is considered to be very holy for altering your karmic balance. This is the Chitra Full Moon on May 8.
All the good and bad deeds that we engage in are stored as transactions in the akashic records, which is your divine personal log. Chitra Gupta is the celestial being who is the accountant incharge of presenting these records to Lord Yama, the God of death. So by appeasing Chitra Gupta, your final day of judgment will be less severe.
This is also a day dear to Lord Satyanarayana, the custodian of truth and prosperity. It is very auspicious to perform the Satyanarayana pooja on the Chitra Full Moon day. Lord Satyanarayana is an extremely benevolent form of Lord Vishnu: Satya, means Truth or Dharma, and Narayana as another name for Vishnu. During this pooja people worship Lord Satyanarayana by reciting his story. This story was originally narrated by Lord Vishnu himself to the sage Narada for the benefit of human-kind.
Performing this pooja grants prosperity and abundance in ones life. This pooja is not only performed on Full Moon days, but also at the time of weddings, on other auspicious occasion or even at the time of achievements. Generally it is performed during the evening hours of the Full Moon Day. On the pooja day the devotees of Lord Satyanarayana customarily undergo fasting.
The pooja starts with a prayer to Lord Ganesha, the remover of all obstacles, followed by the pooja for the 9 planets, the Navagrahas. Then the pooja for Lord Satyanarayana begins with the chanting of mantras, offering of a variety of flowers and food offerings. Also during the pooja, the story of the origin of the pooja is read to be heard among all those observing and partaking in it. The story also explains the benefits of performing the pooja.
