Libra Horoscope (September 23 - October 22)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are doing a great impersonation of a naval commander these days, Libra, with damn the torpedoes and full steam ahead, and with steady as she goes. You have an undeniable strong and sturdy focus on your future right now, and the deliberate application of pressure that you muster serves you well. You are likely to be largely successful at this time in fighting off old patterns of achievement and reactivity to authority, especially the more you are conscious of them, as you simultaneously and perhaps paradoxically dwell in the magic of idealized results and fortunate finances. At bottom, you seek to transform your creative output toward a truly multi-dimensional approach, coming on strong in work and play to express all your different energies, not least the compassionate heart spaces within you.
As the month begins, you are working with issues of intimacy, feeling what it might be like to be closer to the ideal of connection that you inwardly aspire to, and at the same time taking a serious look at where you might be headed with your own plans. This is a month of transforming yourself along the lines of a future that makes sense and yet is wildly idealistic at the very same time. You are inhabiting creative spaces of numinous interconnection and also pulling back from actually merging with others around you, especially significant partnerships in your life. These questions might come to a head around the time of the First Quarter Moon taking place early in the month, on Friday evening, May 4th. Then you will be drawn to others and yet also a bit paradoxically feeling the potential wound of too much closeness with them. Sorting out and balancing the various possibilities may well be your task through this monthly cycle, as you find your own way forward depending on the helpful input from partnerships in your life, but not too much. The Full Moon a week later, on the weekend of Friday, May 12th, brings these issues of self and other even more strongly to the fore, and serves to increase both the spiritual necessity of some kind of third factor solution, and as well the confusion implicit in these departures from your previous patterns in this regard. You are coming to a new understanding as the month unwinds, and you do well to simply witness your changes and challenges at this time without trying very hard to make logical sense of your situation.
