ART: MYSTIC MAMMA
This Lunar Eclipse/ Full Moon in Libra brings the focus to our relationships and the dynamics in our relationships, for relationships are the looking-glass through which we can see ourselves…
What are we needing to see within the dynamics being reflected? Where have we given our power away? Where does balance need to be restored?
Witness and feel the clarity and freedom that seeing brings…
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most tuned in readers of the planetary movements. First from the wonderful Cathy Pagano from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“Our sense of self-identity (Aries) can only be fully known when we relate to someone else (Libra). With the Moon in Libra, we need to remember to have our own Aries standpoint when we relate to others… True balance comes when each person stands on their own side of the scale.
“Our Libra sensibility is how we create good relationships. Both partners’ needs can be met if we learn how to compromise. And compromise means knowing where you stand.
“That’s the awareness we can get from this eclipsed Full Moon. Lunar eclipses give us the awareness to bring a situation to an end.
“While the Sun’s light is blocked by the Earth’s shadow, our unconscious motivations and desires are more easily felt. Without the constraints of our ‘shoulds and oughts’, perhaps we can find clarity and healing of our relationship wounds now…”
“This lunar eclipse occurs within the womb of the Cardinal Grand Cross that is perfecting this week… As these Powers turn the cosmic wheel, new energies will be available for us to use in our lives and for our world.
“So this month stay awake, have faith, be brave and face death. A new birth is upon us…a collective yearning for something better to arise in our world…”
“It is a potent combination that gives rise to Wisdom. Keep in touch with your dreams and let them guide you through any turbulent waters you come across. This is the time of resurrection and new life. Send your love into the future.”

From astrologer Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology:
“Relationships are a key theme during the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse in Libra at 25 degrees on April 15th, 2014. The energies may feel rocky and unstable as there is density, fear, frustration and other stuck energies coming up to be cleared away.
“The illumination of the Full Moon phase helps one to witness things and past trickster-like habitual tendencies that slip in and out of awareness or stuck emotions more clearly…”
“Lunar Eclipse happens during a Full Moon phase and it symbolizes ‘powerful endings, closure, clearing out, completion .’ It heralds a time of major transitions. It represents letting go, clearing out, purging and releasing especially on an emotional and psychological level.
“These changes are not anything new for you know at some level, they have been festering or brewing inside for a long time and it is now coming to the surface.
“It is best to feel it through no matter how raw the emotions are. Let go, clear away. The insights come in the aftermath on their own so no need to analyze first as it inhibits the real shift from taking place. Lunar Eclipses are not to be feared, remove the superstition around it.
“During the Full Moon phase in astrology, emotions tend to be like high tide in the Ocean. Surge of emotional intensity is now possible. There may be a lot more flowing out through tears, sorrow, pain and even joy.
“The emotional level is highly activated now. You will bear witness how you handled things in the past and what you would like to do now.
“There may be a key emotional habit, tendency that comes to light now that occurs in relationship (to self, others, life, Divine etc). This habit no longer will serve your highest good and path. It is time to transform it.
“Also, remember the ‘relationship’ can with anyone and anything; the Divine, health, work, money, body, healing, Spiritual journey, romantic partner, spouse, child/ren, death, aging process, Earth and so forth.”
“…There is a deep purging and cleansing occurring now. Individuals may be feeling a bit raw, very emotional and even on the verge of grieving something very old or from the distant past such as a relationship to someone or something. What is off-balance will really feel off-balance.
“With the other astrological transits happening now, there may be an unexpected or out of the blue interaction with another person or people who may shock and upsets the status quo. Sudden breakthroughs are possible and the best way is not to get ensnared into the reaction or anger. It is possible people may act out, lash out and be more abrasive than normal.
“If anger has been squelched and stuffed, it may erupt with the slightest friction-based encounter with another or situation. Remember, they are the triggers not the cause.
“You are responsible for how you choose to interpret things. As more distance occurs from the situation, you may get more realizations of what really was the underlying cause and how to transform the energy.
“Consider the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Libra a time to restore the harmony and balance on many levels but especially the emotional. Relationship to your emotional self and emotional intimacy may be helpful now. What a wonderful opportunity to clear away and heal the heart energy center.”

From the insightful Pat Liles from The Power Path.com:
“Full Moon Libra Lunar Eclipse ~ 25º / Tuesday, April 15, 20145, 1:42 AM Mountain Time (April 15, 2014, 7:42 AM Greenwich Mean Time)
“…With this Moon we look closely at issues of identity/partnership – Aries/Libra. Who am I? In my body, my projected image, in my inner Self, in my life quest?
“Contrasting with how do I partner? How do I cooperate and form relationship with others? “
“…It’s where our cutting edge lessons lay for the next 18 months as North Node journeys through Libra to maximize our ability to see others as our selves and bring harmonious relationship into all we create. Look to your relationships and the needs and longings you have to be personally fulfilled as your teachers.
“This Moon in Libra is closely aligned with Ceres (exactly) and Vesta fully illuminating our relationship to our Mother planet and the gifts of nourishment and support she provides and reminding us to hold these feminine manifestations as sacred. This is a major theme of the eclipse/Full Moon not to be taken lightly…”
“Tapping into our spiritual connections will help us avoid and balance the chaos and fear that can come from those around us when they lack an anchoring relationship to truth, love and power.
“When we experience an eclipse, it is an opportunity for reset. A portal of alignment is created where new influence can take precedence over the old.
“The weeks surrounding an eclipse pair contains intensified energy even without an added Grand Cross and will bring to the surface issues that have been long in the shadows especially in those areas where the eclipse falls in your personal chart.
“The parts of our psyche that can’t resonate with this higher frequency energy will come up for us to be surrendered. New energies needing to be expressed at the new frequencies will also be bombarding our consciousness for manifestation…”
“This energy and pressure has been palpable since the New Moon. It will blow through any veins of weakness encouraging the ego to wallow in victimhood, arrogance, depression, stubbornness, fear, helplessness, etc., and it can take you to incredible heights of higher-centered joy, gratitude, creativity, inspiration and connectedness.
“We all have a choice point here, a major choice point, as to how we want to manifest this huge gift. Actively choose the highest vibration you can in every moment!”
“….If you are feeling personally overwhelmed at some level by this up-welling of pressure and energy characterized by the Grand Cross/Eclipse event use this advice from river rafting: If you find yourself in a raging, whitewater river whirlpool eddy (of reactivity), don’t try to fight it, there’s nothing to grab onto, it’s not real, it’s not what it seems.
“Trust and Surrender are called for; let yourself be pulled downward (into the awareness of your biggest fear). You will hit the bottom (of this illusion) and you’ll catch some downstream current and it will pull you out of your hole and release you into the river (of life).
“…This is the time to put your gratitude forth for all the many blessings in your life and to clearly speak aloud your intentions and desires to be heard by Great Spirit as we step across this edge to the other side.”

From astrologer Divine Harmony:
“When planets are stationary their energies dominate- so with Pluto stationary right before the eclipse the images of the snake shedding it’s skin or the phoenix rising out of the ashes is strong.
“We are in a powerful time where we are asked to look at what is no longer working in our lives- where is the old skin stuck and inhibiting our further growth.
“Where are we surrounded by things/people/situations/ attitudes that are actually toxic and need to be burned in the fire, so we can rebirth ourselves like the phoenix does? The month of April is very much supportive of doing this work!
“…Aries is the sign of the self and Libra is the sign of the other. We have a lot of astrology focusing on this polarity and duality right now- forcing us to address where we are imbalanced in our lives.
“If we overdo our Aries we are fiery, feisty, aggressive, conflictual and selfish. If we overdo our Libra we are pacifist, have boundary issues, are codependent and cannot stand up for or take care of ourselves.
“This Full Moon Eclipse in Libra will definitely highlight any imbalances in relationships…Ultimately evolution and wholeness is achieved when we integrate our opposites and take back projections we have put onto others so that we can live them for ourselves…”
“To add to the potency of this configuration we have Ceres- the Great Mother asteroid, and Vesta- the priestess asteroid, conjunct the Full Moon in Libra- again bringing Light to the archetypal energy of the Divine Feminine in collective consciousness…”
“I feel this lunation to be a call to the Divine Feminine within all of us- a wake up call to service and our role as priestesses and priests of the Great Mother. In case you have not noticed, we are doing horrible things to our planet (our Mother Earth!) and in some insane fashion we have decided money and power is more important than health and harmony. We need a rebalancing of the scales- and we needed it yesterday! This eclipse can make that very clear in no uncertain terms- it’s time to make a change for the better!”
“This lunation is also conjunct the evolutionary North Node- pulling us towards our growth and evolution. Eclipses are already about our evolution and growth, but when we have the nodes involved that focus is amplified. With the Moon on the North Node and the Sun on the South Node- we have an opportunity to look at our karmic past and patterns we keep playing out, as well as our evolution and growth and the edge we need to push past.
“This lunation gives us the perfect opportunity to let go of the past and move into the future- but it will not be without some hard work on our part! To add to that, the Lunar Eclipse is also conjunct a powerful fixed star called Arcturus. This fixed star is seen as giving us a ‘different approach‘- which honestly I think we need as the one we are working with is clearly not working! “
“…Wherever this lunation falls in your chart, you have significant opportunities to die to some old aspect of yourself and your life and rebirth something new in it’s place. But this is also the area of your chart where you may be avoiding doing the work- so the total lunar eclipse may have to drag it up into your awareness so that you can deal with it. Similar to pluto transits- lunar eclipse energies are best worked with consciously.
“If you are proactive about your transformation and take initiative in facilitating and making the changes in your life you need to make- then the Universe tends to reward you and support you. That is how you take a breakdown and turn it into a breakthrough- the key word is to “break” from the past patterns and ways of doing/being that no longer serve.
“In any event, this lunation will be one to see! It will be visible in Australia, the Pacific Ocean (and islands) and the Americas. Some say the countries that are able to see the eclipse are the ones that will experience the effects of it most. The eclipse will last 3 1/2 hours, of which 1 hour and 18 minutes will be the total lunar eclipse.”
