Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are taking it over the top, Libra. This is the month that the pace of change really accelerates for both your work in the world and also for your on-going internal transformation. It is important to recognize that far from being a distraction, the one is not really possible without the other. Partners in your life provide much of the catalytic excitement and part of the joy, but the real opportunity is for deep connection within the bounds of your very own mind and heart. As you sink into more meaningful resonance with the surrounding cosmos you might return to your own profound center and, as they say, know that place as though it were the very first time.
As the month begins, you are feeling your oats, putting some very concentrated energy into outer persona and career initiatives. You are a bit head in the clouds at this time also, to be sure, but remain primarily concerned with the practical considerations of making things happen in the world of events. Meanwhile there are important changes that are creeping up on you from the very core of your being, partly as a result of applying concretized bodily and physical awareness to the arc of your personal development. In this way you are combining modalities, moving with concerted effort that includes body and soul together. The Solar Eclipse and New Moon from the very beginning of the month brings with it loads of energy for outer world pursuits, placed as it is in your sector of career and profession. You have in fact been gathering your energies over the past several weeks for just this moment, a starburst of both serious endeavor and joyous interconnection with others. With this eclipse you are being pulled in several directions at once; your head and its productions on the one hand and on the other relationship, including deep family connectivity and with intimate partners. With Saturn strongly constellated in your identity sector you have had quite a time lately in actualizing your productions into concrete manifestation, it has been slow and difficult getting anything out, with many unplanned delays and unexpected hardships. That is not changing anytime soon, but you have the consolation of realizing that as difficult as getting things accomplished might have been, the results are long-lasting and productive of character. When you take the long view of what has been achieved thus far and continuing to the end of this year – what you have built and are continuing to build – you might come to recognize this period as entirely life changing. With the First Quarter Moon of late Thursday and early Friday, July 7th and 8th, you might come to a few bumps in the road of your progress. Difficulties arise and lead you to a better understanding of where you need to make vital course adjustments. In this powerful juncture you will come to see many factors of your ongoing transformation in a vastly different light. You are reaching past polarity and conflict toward a new synthesis. The Full Moon of Thursday night and Friday morning, July 14th and 15th, allows you to find a better form of balance, uniting self and other, and as well your head and your heart. You are moving from your own deep center at this time and it serves you to recognize that the fluctuations of partnership activity that you have been experiencing lately are just what you have needed, even though disconcerting, and necessary from the standpoint of your own progress and growth. When the Last Quarter Moon of Friday, July 22nd comes around, it signals a time of mulling over your various changes with an eye to the future. Next month provides smoother sailing as you take for granted the questions and conflicts of this phase and go beyond them with a steadier gaze, building a bridge to a more vibrant and alive participation in your own life.
