One picture is worth a thousand words. Proverb
Nature is a revelation of God; Art a revelation of man. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Art is the lie that makes us realize the truth. Pablo Picasso
Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together. John Ruskin
Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life. John Lubbock
Art has no enemy but ignorance. Romanian Proverb
A painting in a museum probably hears more foolish remarks than anything else in the world. Edmond Jules Goncour
The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. Marcel Duchamp
The Libran new Moon, occurring on Friday, September 30 in the United States, and on Saturday morning in Australia, is a very interesting and promising new Moon. Conjunct (closely together with) Jupiter, it can bring about many good things in our lives, with breakthroughs, good luck, the desire to break free of onerous limitations, seeking expansion, seeking abundance - all kinds of wonderful things can appear with Jupiter so strongly accented.
It's interesting to note that the next full Moon, occurring on October 15/16, is almost exactly conjunct Uranus, so, we are ramping up the energies to finding our more authentic sense of self in amongst all of the things going on in around us.
All is usually good, positive and wonderfully rewarding with Jupiter around, however, there can also be philosophical, political, religious or spiritual responses that can bring up the differences between people. We have been seeing that a lot this year already, and, this new Moon could ramp up that energy. The political maxim of 'divide and conquer' has been showing up a lot - when, truly, we need to unite in common causes to make the world a better place for all.
The trick with Jupiter is not to overdo or overplay, to think twice before acting and then being confident of your decisions - to measure a few times and cut once, as they say. Staying positive, upbeat and open to the new can break down all kinds of barriers that may have kept you from having what you want. As I have been writing about recently on my website, we have had/are having a lot of activity going on on the Super Galactic Center (in particular, Jupiter transiting over it), click here and click here to read more of what I've written about this fascinating and potentially very rewarding transit.
