*Lunar Eclipse* Full Moon in Libra illuminates the shadows and reveals the energetic wounds in our hearts in our relationships to Self and Others. With gentle loving acceptance, it’s time to hold space for it all as we continue to choose love.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our beloved featured astrologers. First from the wonderful DIVINE HARMONY:
“The Penumbral Lunar Eclipse at 3’17 Libra is exact on Wednesday March 23rd 2016 at 5:01am PDT (The Full Moon is exact at this time, with maximum Eclipse exact at 4:48am). This Eclipse is Penumbral so it won’t be as easy to see as the Moon will be fainter than usual- but energetically it’s still quite potent.
“…we have all been in very deep emotional, psychic, spiritual and Unconscious waters this month!
“…It is interesting to note that both Eclipses in this Eclipse portal (which is a time of great transformation and change) are in Pisces and Libra- the two signs that tend to be very idealistic, want to see the beauty, tend to ignore the shadow and also tend to over focus on others at the expense of the self…”
“The best use of Libra energy is being able to hold space for seeing it ALL- Light and shadow, self and other, good and evil, black and white (Libra is the sign of the scales).
“The best use of all the Pisces energy present right now is to deeply feel the all and understand that we are ALL connected to it all and to each other and instead of numbing ourselves out so we don’t have to acknowledge this we need to tap into our greater sensitivity and realize this connection for personal and planetary healing.
“Of course living with an open heart has to be supported by healthy boundaries and a healthy sense of self- both of which Pisces and Libra are not necessarily known for so therein lies the karmic lesson right now…Wherever we each are at on this spectrum- the call this month is to come more to the center.
“We each need to be open enough to realize we are all in this together- and we have to be grounded into an individual sense of self enough to keep healthy boundaries so we don’t get overwhelmed by the suffering and pain in the world and simply become immobilized, apathetic and victimized as a result…”
“Ceres, the Great Mother asteroid Goddess, is approaching the Chiron/South Node conjunction. At the time of the Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday March 23rd- the conjunction is within one degree of exactness!
“The true North node/Chiron conjunction is exact later on the day of the Eclipse, while the mean North Node/Chiron conjunction was exact on March 18th- so we have had the Wounded Healer activating the karmic South Node very intensely the entire week leading up to this eclipse.
“This has been bringing up all manner of old wounds and pain, forcing us to look at where we default to the shadow expression of Pisces personally and collectively with denial, avoidance of reality, playing the victim or martyr, delusion and deception of self, other and even from the media, and more.
“Ceres aligns with the mean North Node on Tuesday March 22nd while Ceres aligns with Chiron on Thursday March 24th- bookending the Lunar Eclipse.
“When you add Ceres into the picture we have big karmic patterns up with the potential for great wounding but also profound healing in regards to our relationship to Mother Earth, the environment and our collective denial of what we are all doing to our sacred Mother…”
“The aspects of this Eclipse are excellent in terms of bringing greater awareness to this theme.
“The Full Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in Aries- bringing Light to the collective and personal conversations that need to happen so that we can find a space for both self and other, Light and shadow, give and take and then generate a third perspective (the creative third as Jung called it).”

From the wise SARAH VARCAS from her Astro-Awakenings.co.uk:
“The Lunar Eclipse occurs in the 4th degree of Libra at 11:48 a.m. UT and augurs a time of if we fail to remember that the urgency we currently feel is not to be trusted!
“With Saturn stationing retrograde in a few days’ time, we may already be feeling the burden of trying to remain positive when much around us seems to be spiralling into negativity. Previously buoyant attitudes may be waning, fears bubbling up and anxieties taking centre stage.
“If so, it’s time to cut ourselves and each other some slack; to accept that waves of energy come and go. Activity is followed by exhaustion, progress by inertia, excitement by quiet repose.
“If we try to push too hard against prevailing conditions now, desperate to maintain ‘progress’ no matter what, we may end up burning out and creating more stress rather than less.
“We cannot, at this point, extricate ourselves into ‘better times’ simply by sheer force of will. It is time to rest, stop and reflect.
“To allow to arise thoughts and feelings we may have been avoiding, for in doing so our inner world can begin a return to balance, rather than forcing it to run on empty because we’ve failed to refuel when necessary.
“As eclipses go, and despite being far from total, this is a fairly intense one. But we can ease the load for ourselves and each other by choosing acceptance over judgement, love over fear, communication over withdrawal and hope over despair.
“We may be tempted to retreat into highly subjective positions now, assuming truth without putting assumptions to the test, forgetting that life from another person’s perspective can make equal sense even when their perspective is diametrically opposed to our own!
“Battles over who’s right and who’s wrong, who has the upper hand or moral high-ground, who did what to whom – none of these will help right now! It’s far more important to focus on what we share not what divides: the common ground that being human provides.
“The polarization of individuals, systems of thought and belief, lifestyles and priorities, is becoming especially stark these days. This eclipse alerts us to the eventual destination if we continue further down that road – a place of conflict and hatred, power struggles and oppression.
“It urges us to let go the need to be right and embrace the possibilities inherent in deep listening and deep seeing: looking into our ‘enemy’ and recognizing even the tiniest smidgen of shared humanity upon which can be built foundations for a new world.
“The world as it stands is challenged by many opposing forces now. We feel them both personally and collectively, pushing against our own will, raising difficult questions, triggering issues we would rather avoid.
“How we manage our own inner conflicts largely dictates how we manage external ones. If we struggle with our own anger or hatred, telling ourselves we shouldn’t feel this way, we will struggle to respond effectively to the anger of others.
“If we fear our own power – preferring to see ourselves as victim rather than creator – we may too readily succumb to the power wielded by others, adopting their thoughts and priorities, behaviors and lifestyles without discerning the right path for us.
“If we refuse to acknowledge our own inner tyrant who demands its own way no matter what, we may project it onto the world around us, pointing the finger at those bullies out there without recognizing their reflection within ourselves.
“There is much to be seen and understood at this time. The floodgates holding back the unconscious are opened by this eclipse and we may feel overwhelmed by what comes pouring through. But remember, whatever it is, it is only ourselves. You and me in our fullness: good and bad, positive and negative, loving and hateful, accepting and impatient.
“We identify with those parts of ourselves we can live with and avoid the bits we can’t, when in fact we can live with all of it when wise discernment, gentle acceptance, compassion and understanding inform our attitude and shape our inner and outer relationships.
“We are all in the same boat, we human beings, battered by the winds and torrential rain of emotion, warmed by the sunshine and life-giving showers of spirit.
“Uniquely separate at one level and united at another, this eclipse encourages us to reflect upon what divides us, what unites us and how we can move forward together in a life-affirming and positive way.
“It is time to encourage each other and ourselves. To hold up to others a mirror in which they can see their potential, not their failings: a child of god not an orphan of circumstance.
“If we each use this eclipse to do three things – allow ourselves to rest, forgive ourselves at least one ‘failing’ and encourage one other person to love who they are – we will have done it, and ourselves, very proud.”

From the wonderful CATHY PAGANO from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“Lunar eclipses add extra power to a Full Moon, bringing old emotional patterns and complexes to our awareness so that we can release them.
“Eclipses are doorways to alternative realities, an interlude in the rush of life where we can turn in new directions. In the past few years, we’ve had a series of eclipses in Aries and Libra and this is the last of that series.
“Aries and Libra deal with issues of identity and interconnection. Who am I in relationship to Others? We’ve had a few years to mull that one over and hopefully we’ve emerged from an ‘every man for himself’ attitude to ‘what happens to me also happens to you‘ sense of connection…”
“Listen to your intuition and inner guidance. Trust is important now…”
“Our collective paradigm of life will shift from our individual needs to our communal needs. This doesn’t take away from our individual and unique talents; rather it asks us to contribute them to the greater whole.
“We are not going back to a time of tribal consciousness—where the family or tribe makes decisions for individuals, but we are going forward to a consciousness where each individual’s needs are conditioned by the needs of the group as a whole.
“It makes us better people when we take others into consideration. As a matter of fact, women do it all the time. It seems to be part of our genetic makeup.
“When women lead in business and government, the needs of the many are always considered…It’s time for our New Story to begin. Leave the past behind and begin to live your inner truth…”
“Chiron (the Wounded Healer) and Ceres (the Great Mother) conjunct the Pisces South Node, indicating a time of healing our past karma (repeating behavior patterns) around our relationship to Mother Earth and self-nurturing.
“Acknowledge the hurts and then let them go with a blessing for all they’ve taught us. With Venus and Neptune also in the picture, we have an opportunity to heal our relationship to the Divine Feminine. The Goddess has returned. It’s time to honor her.
“Your lunar eclipse energy will be reflected in your chart where this eclipse occurs for you. The lunar eclipse’s effect can last up to three months, which takes us to the next turning point of the year—Summer Solstice. So use this time to play and take joy in your rebirth.
“The Cosmos is giving us an opportunity to face the truth about ourselves. Fear will always be prowling at the door. Let’s use Aries’ bravery and daring to face our fears and bring them into the Light and make peace with them.
“Will we be accepted? Will we be good enough? Will we be able to support ourselves? Face those questions with a big resounding YES! Why not? We’re in a new story, remember?
“Yes, sometimes the world is a scary place, but why let that stop us from living the life we were born to live. We are all being called to go on our hero’s journey out into the world. Begin. Now is the time, and this is the place. And don’t forget to Dance!”
