Libra Horoscope (September 23 - October 22)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are finishing up one phase of your ongoing transformation, Libra, and setting your feet upon the path to the next. The retrograde of your ruler Venus that continues through the first half of the current month in your sector of resources will turn out to be extremely educational in the long run. You are refining your approach in many ways right now, attempting to see through to the core and the essence of what you value. This can be confusing but also exhilarating period, as you put renewed energy into establishing a sense of security that is independent of superficial concerns. Surprising twists and turns of fate bring you closer to an understanding that is actually deeper than your mind can travel.
As the month begins, you are primed for action but of a subtle and an unusual kind. There is a profound transformation happening deep within you and this month is a month of recognition of that process and of your seeking to further it. It is vital that you pay close attention to inner priorities now rather than outer ones. Really you almost have no choice in the matter but to take this energy to a place that will turn out to be very powerful for you; it does help however to be able to perceive this with your consciousness as well as with your heart. The New Moon of Friday, November 5th, gives you new energy for this internal quest, and there also might be inspiration for moving in some new and different directions with it. There is a fundamental dichotomy that is going on right now between the constraints of hard and fast reality and the promptings of your soul, as you seek to redefine yourself along lines that are more appropriate to your fundamental vision for yourself, moving forward. You have been having loads of good ideas in this area and now is the time to make them more concretely available to you in your everyday life. Attempting this integration can be confusing to your notion of practical limits, but it is very rewarding for the deeper meaning of your life and your life mission right now that you do so. The First Quarter Moon of Saturday, November 13th, might present you with a few kinks in the road to progress and your challenge is to take them in stride. You could find you are in conflict between the demands of you sense of purpose for yourself, and the way your creativity seems to be making itself known, and the demands of security, and it is important that you resolve this by choosing a third way, incorporating more of a big picture viewpoint. This places you in a different universe altogether than the one that is bounded by the material world only, and it is a more appropriate one for you to habitually dwell in, and this is so even though it runs against the grain of consensus thinking. With the station of your ruler Venus on Thursday, November 18th, you will feel a shift in the energy and with the Full Moon of Sunday, November 21st, you will be able to strike a better balance between antithetical elements. You are on a path of unreason, of heart connection, and it can become confusing until you trust in your impulses to be the right ones for the moment that you are currently living through. The world is built on both reason and on unreason and you benefit when you give each its due. The remainder of the month is a time for consolidating the lessons learned through the hectic period of these first three weeks. You are making vital progress over these fall and winter months in spite of any indications to the contrary; the tide is turning slowly in your favor.
