ART BY MYSTIC MAMMA
(Hopi woman by Edward S. Curtis)
*NEW MOON* is here again bringing us a new cycle wherein we can plant seeds for a brighter, more compassionate, more cooperative future.
The archetype of Libra reminds us of our interconnected nature and teaches us about the art of harmonizing with all of our relations.
Ruled by Venus, she inspires us to walk with beauty and bring forth our feminine gifts of empathy, love and creativity to bridge a new understanding of ourselves and each other and the animate world that surrounds us.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our beloved featured astrologers. First from CHAD WOODWARD from his Kosmic Mind:
“Take a deep breath. You’ve made it to the New Moon in tropical Libra.
“Feel the inner peace that exists within you; connect with that potential state.
“Something holds the universe together. No matter what we endure, life seeks to achieve homeostasis.
“It’s really an amazing thing. Life always finds a way around things. Every obstacle, challenge, or blockage is just an accent along the pathway to wholeness.
“And each perceived limitation can always be worked with and incorporated somehow.
“Whatever flaws you might think you have can become your allies. They can be a beautiful piece of your wholeness.
“This is what Libra ultimately teaches us. As the archetype of the artist or the lover, Libra seeks to create beauty from whatever it has to work with.
“As you settle into this New Moon, take a deep look at your life, and see the opportunities that exist allowing you to turn your challenges into a work of art.
“It might take the form of stabilizing a relationship, friendship, or professional partnership, or it might take the form of a literal creative endeavor.
“Whatever it is, this New Moon plants the seeds for increased stability and cooperation in some aspect of your life.
“Mercury’s retrograde cycle is now over. Perhaps you’ve encountered some setbacks in the past few weeks. But it’s also possible that those setbacks served to gift you with a different perspective.
“I don’t think that Mercury retrogrades ever pass by without teaching us something, or helping us become more aware of the universe we are enmeshed within.
“The final eclipse season of this year is also over, and it has likely left you a bit altered, perhaps it has significantly rerouted your present course. Where do you go from here? This is a time when you may begin to get a better sense of that.
“The planet Jupiter conjoins this New Moon. The God of expansion, abundance, and opportunity steps in to open new doorways.
“This New Moon is a time to make some choices… In Libra, consider the possibility of receiving help from trusted allies, whoever or whatever they might be.
“Don’t feel like you have to step into the darkness all by yourself.
“The most powerful theme of this lunation is a spotlight on the human need for companionship and support. It’s our nature, as social creatures, to reach out and support others on their journey.
“How can you reach out? And what do you need for yourself? You may find that the best use of your time right now would be to see who needs help and to equally see where you could benefit from support as well.
“Again, don’t step into this darkness alone. This powerful New Moon amplifies our social instincts. If you’re open to that, you’ll find that new ways to connect and bond will emerge all around you.
“While it might not be clear where these connections will ultimately lead, this is a potent starting point.
“Also, consider Jupiter’s innate ability to bring about restlessness and the need for new experience. It will likely catalyze action to help you move beyond those attachments that hold you back, and to embrace those that can help you step forward.
“The New Moon makes a sextile to Saturn, which makes it easier to work with current life challenges. You might find that, at the moment, the heaviness of recent obstacles are lifted.
“Neptune also makes a quincunx with the New Moon. What is emerging now does not appear with crystalline clarity, but it’s probably enough to entice you to keep going with whatever you’ve been struggling with.
“Neptune reminds you that you’ll never have it all figured out anyway, so stop pretending you ever will.
“Trust in the great mystery, and along the way, grab the helping hand that is offered to you (be discerning, of course).
“Life might still be confusing, but at least you can grapple with that confusion in good company.”

SARAH VARCAS from her Astro-Awakenings.co.uk:
“The New Moon in Libra…is a good time to begin again in recent situations of discord and conflict…
“Human nature is cyclical, moving in ebbs and flows of togetherness and understanding, strife, separation and discord, then back to connection again. This is true of our relationship with ourselves as much as with each other!
“Nothing remains the same. There is no stasis, even in death. So any notion that nothing can change – least of all us or them, this or that – simply cannot be trusted, especially now!
“Change is the only constant, a dependable refuge until we know without doubt the sacred essence which feeds us from a different place.
“In an alliance with Neptune and Venus, this New Moon both spiritualizes and grounds our relationships.
“It enables a more compassionate heart and courageous spirit, manifest in a willingness to say the hard stuff whilst holding a space of love and acceptance.
“Only then can we realistically decide where, being these people at this time, life will take us next.
“But if unavoidable separations are on the cards come October, don’t resist them. We know in our heart when an ending has arrived, no matter how much we may fight this truth.
“Try, if possible, to relax a little into it, embracing the space of ‘only me’ where ‘we’ used to be.
“Whilst this New Moon speaks of love, it is a greater, more enduring kind: love of the Self as it really is, not the false self we create to get by. Love of the divine which flows through us as truth, that burns from within when denied.
“No one person can give or take away this unbounded love for it is none of ours to own and yet all of ours to share.
“This coming month we must do so widely, drink it in deeply and weave it through the very heart of this fantastically tumultuous life.”

CATHY PAGANO from her Wisdom of Astrology.com:
“New Moons nights are magical times. The night sky fills with millions of stars with no Moon in the sky to enchant our eyes.
“We look up and look out into the universe, just as the far side of the Moon does. We look into eternity. And a new seed gets planted in our collective psyche.
“Each New and Full Moon occupy different signs of the Zodiac, and so different energies are evoked and different desires are stirred up…
“Even more than with other signs, Libra strongly affects everyone, because Libra is the sign of the Other, so it impacts all our Relationships, even our relationship to our Self…”
“Libra wants real justice, fairness and balance in our laws, our beliefs and our actions.
“And yet while it is an air/thinking sign, Libra has heart. With Venus/Aphrodite as the ruler of Libra, she balances her head and her heart to help us find truth, beauty and love.
“With Aphrodite comes the Muses, inspiring us to create Art That Matters to others…
“What about using ART to speak about this election in the US? Where are our musicians and artists in this time of dire beauty and chaos?
“The Arts speak to justice, beauty and truth. It is a heartfelt expression that speaks to us viscerally…”
“Now, to add a little more spice to this juicy energy, the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, has just arrived in the sign of Libra, and will be traveling through it until next October 2017.
“So the sign of Libra and all our relationships will be especially energized this year…”
“We might find ourselves stepping out of our personal concerns and opening our hearts to future generations who need us to stand up for justice now…
“Saving our planet is about leaving a sustainable and sustaining Earth for future generations.
“Jupiter in Libra can encourage our more noble character to stand up and have a say in how our laws affect us and the world.
“And in the relationship realm, Jupiter in Libra can help us be both noble and truthful about our relationship needs. So on all levels, this is the year to engage with zest and joy in relationships!
“…At this New Moon, Venus helps us dig out the truth of our hearts—what fears live there, what hopes want to blossom, what visions want to manifest.
“All too often in astrology, we reduce Venus/Aphrodite to a few key words like love, sex, beauty and money, values..But those words do not begin to describe the deep mystery of Venus/Aphrodite, who leads us to Wisdom!
“Any goddess energy that can give us that gift is deeper than a few catchwords…”
“As Evening Star, Venus gives us a bigger stage to act upon. What and who can you influence with your truth and wisdom?
“Venus is asking us to remember who we really are and to access our wisdom.
“We live in a living, evolving universe. Anything is possible…”
