May Horoscopes

by Henry Seltzer

Libra Libra Horoscope (September 23 - October 22)
Cardinal Air. Your ruling planet is Venus.

This is the time of your life, Libra, and of making key changes as well. Your transformation and growth is remarkable even though, with your ruler Venus retrograding through your sector of higher mind, it might be the case of two steps forward, one step back. This will nevertheless allow you to come closer to the ultimate goal. You are reviewing all your beliefs and values, looking for concrete evidence you can leverage for lasting transformation. A thoughtful and even spiritual point of view is essential to this enterprise and through many major twists and turns will take you where you need to go, which is toward a renewed sense of absolute security that stems not from the opinions of others but from the depths of your very own mind and heart.

As the month begins, you are exploring your beliefs and your life in general, feeling your way forward into your own unique journey of personal evolution. With your ruler Venus more prominent this month and in your ninth sector, this might take the form of travel or higher education, or teaching, or just an evolving project of attempting in your own way to establish a sensible point of view that satisfies you. There is lately a cosmic uncertainty within your soul about where you are headed and what it might possibly take to get there, and you are searching for some form of resolved plan. You are possessed now with a strong desire to be of compassionate service to the surrounding society, and to family and friends or in the workplace, but you might sometimes catch yourself feeling compelled rather than magnanimous. If so, this is toxic to a peaceful state of mind and therefore needs resolution also. You have high ideals for your life right now and for where you might be heading, but is this truly Idealism or another form of illusion? The questions are murky and the answers even more so, and the conundrum becomes even more complicated after the mid-month retrograde of Venus, signaling a time when you will take these issues under personal advisement in a more internal way. You are engaged in a process of sussing out the truth of your situation, and if you make this effort in good faith then the universe will meet you half-way. As astrologer Caroline Casey often remarks, cosmic forces are ready, willing and able to come to your aid, but spiritual etiquette requires that you be the first one to ask. The Full Moon in your resources sector that comes along by Saturday, May 5th, brings a modicum of stability to your situation. As far as establishing definite rules of the road for your ongoing evolution and your ultimate destination, that might be a bit of a stretch, but you are better able to nevertheless come into a place of calm and a cessation of worry. You grow by a process of acceptance and surrender, whereby you do not give up your own initiative, but enter into a graceful agreement to serve as co-creator with the cosmos by allowing it to at least partially guide you. Your intuition is calling out for this step, or perhaps the message seems to come to you through the agency of helpful others, since partners in your life are currently partaking in the chorus of inner guidance that is available to you right now, and also have surprises in store for you. The Last Quarter Moon of Saturday, May 12th, also represents an important juncture, and signals a phase when you are reassessing what has transpired in the cycle thus far. This time there is an additional sense of limitation for you to integrate and you also feel an intensity of commitment and purposeful intention. You are determined to make an important difference, if not in the surrounding social matrix, at least regarding your personal issues and how to facilitate meaningful change in your relationships with others. With the Solar Eclipse and New Moon of Sunday, May 20th, you are reaching for a greater depth of inner connection to your own beliefs as well as allowing others the benefit of the doubt in expressing theirs. Everything is slowed down and yet filled with a great deal of forward-going energy; the advantage of the slowing of your process lies in giving yourself plenty of time to contemplate exactly what you are up to and to be sure of your direction before you make your move. In the words of that 60s troubadour, Dylan, you will literally stand on the ocean until you start sinking and know your song well before you start singing.
