With the Power of New Moon in Libra and the Navratri (Nine Nights of the Goddess), this is a powerful time of an upsurge in energy of the Divine Feminine.
She is the Goddess Venus, of Beauty, Arts,Legalities, Balance, Relationships and our own Self Worth. She is the ruler of Libra, and currently in libra, with us also being in the Libra period, the theme is very much about Libran issues.
So for the next 28 days, a good time to work on the Feminine issues of our life in relation to the above themes.
If we are looking at the overall planetary influence, then, we need to look at our Worth in both our relationship with our self and with others. Is there an area/s where we are fooling ourselves? In denial maybe of the reality?
Now is the time when feelings about relationships, whether personal or business will be surfacing and we are called to make decisions, even though, Libra is indecisive and hesitant, now you can harness the power of the Navratri Goddess period to support you in breaking out of old habits in relationships.
Also, a good time to start new relationships, and look at what beauty is really about.
In conjunction to this see my other blog on Navratri.
The Divine Feminine work is not only for females, it is for men too. In India, Men accompany their families to Temples to fulfil Pilgrimages and do Puja to the Goddess.
The Goddess is our Mother Earth, a great time to give it more respect than ever before!

Navratri means nine nights of paying homage to the Goddess in her nine forms.
She is Durga, the Goddess that has immense Shakti for all victory over negative forces a strength, this starts and continues till the tenth day (Dasarah, or Desserah). Tenth day is also Navratum the compound experience.
There are three main Goddesses and these consciousness are further broken down to individual names for each night.
However, the main three that will be identified with are Durga, (Victory), Laxshmi (Wealth), Saraswati (Knowledge and Arts).
Puja (worship) is done each night, with rituals and ceremonial practices.
Adorning and showering the Goddess with love and devotion through, devotional Rangolis, Mantras, Kirtan, offerings etc.
Families and communities come together and apply henna, buy new clothes, and give each other gifts extending the love of the Goddess to each other.
During this time a lot of therapeutic things can be done and achieved, because it is a time of victory, manifestation and achievement!
In India the following colours are observed as auspicious on those days.
Navratri Day 1 - Grey
Navratri Day 2 - Orange

If you would like to connect to the Goddess on each day, I suggest using a candle from the colours for each day, and playing a mantra from the link below, and go into your own meditation and observe your feelings, write down things if you need to and enjoy the experience.
Jai Ho Mata Di
Hail The Divine Goddess
Many stories have been told by different Cultures and Faiths on the polarities of Light and Dark. It is an experience of all Souls, for what is our Darkness is what leads us back to our Light. It is the Journey of Consciousness.
Sometimes our Light can be very dim, hence we experience low mood, ill health and blockages in our pathway, this is our challenge. The above quote is very poignant, in this journey.
In India Festival of Lights, came about as a Victorious outcome in a Journey that Ram (an Avatar) had to endure. He had such a battle with the dark forces, and even at times when he thought it was over, more would come and challenge him. But he had to carry on against all odds, for his wife, his love, Sita, who had been captured by the Demon King Ravan.
As he followed the Path of Satyagraha, and followed in Rightousness Dharma, he was victorious, hence the divya lights that light his path on his return with Sita.
Sita too earned her Status of Divine Goddess by following the path of Satyagrah, walking in her truth and not allowing her fears to deviate her into the charms and offers made by Ravan.
Stories, like this are examples to learn from and find comfort and solace, because the very fact that we are here on the Earth, is to make our Darkness into Light!

As a psychotherapist, my work is all about, helping and supporting in the Consciousness states and working with peoples darkness. My last Retreat to India, also had this as a focus, as we arrived in Jaipur for Diwali, and ended in Varanasi for Ekadasi festival of Light.
I love doing 'Light' Projects around the time of Diwali as it taps into the energy of Light that is being celebrated around the world and this has an integration of alchemy tied in. So look out for our Diwali Specials!
