The Moon is in Pisces all day, and we are inclined to daydream and perhaps
stray from our regular routine a little. A First Quarter Moon occurs when the
Sun in Sagittarius forms a square with the Pisces Moon at 10:13 AM EST. There is
a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled
to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions
affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever
project or initiative we began around the New Moon on December 2nd is
now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
December is an especially busy month for you, Libra. Life speeds up, others seem to demand more of your attention than usual, and the pace of your life is hectic at times. Important, positive information or news comes your way. This is an excellent month for a new mental pursuit or project, if only you have a chance to focus on it! A New Moon occurs in your communications and learning sector on the 2nd, bringing fresh energy for finding new areas of interest, for studies, and for making new contacts. This cycle places added emphasis in your life on communication skills, learning, and daily interactions and contacts. It's a good cycle for taking tests, filling out forms and applications, starting a new course or area of study, writing, making phone calls, and taking care of daily tasks with increased energy. December 7th brings Mars into your sign and symbolically out of "hiding" in your chart. Confidence returns with great force. A partnership may begin or pick up speed, and certainly is clearer - even more so in the third week of the month. A partner seems to be on your side now. It is also a time when others are attracted to your confidence and verve. Actively pursue your desires, which can be plentiful for the time being! However, Venus retrogrades from December 21st forward, and this can point to some stalling or revisiting of the past. Material benefits may be coming from your career as well as real estate or family around the 10-12. You are more willing than usual to work diligently for money. Higher ups are seeing your value. Energy, verve, and confidence are with you in general until the last week of the month when your life winds down, quite appropriately if you're on holiday. Until then, it's hustle and bustle, and matters are definitely working in your favor. On the 17th, word on an application, interview, or educational matter could arrive. From the 21st, family matters come into stronger focus. Your ruler, Venus, turns retrograde, and you might be a little more withdrawn and indecisive. Relations with family can be complicated and require more sensitive care.
should be a strong year for work and business, dear Libra. In the first half of
the year, you are actively building your skills and experience. By midyear,
expansive Jupiter's rise to the very top of your solar chart marks a personal
peak of sorts - a cycle that's with you for approximately a year. Take advantage
of the cycle from January to June by learning as much as possible so that when
Jupiter does reach its peak in June-July, you'll be able to take advantage of
the career opportunities that are likely to come your way. You'll also feel more
deserving of the recognition you receive then and through to mid-2014. There can
be favorable connections made with people far away from you, and some Libras
will get published or reach a broader audience. Saturn's presence in your money
and values sector can promote a feeling that you're pinched in the money
department, but this can serve to motivate you to work harder and save more -
two good things! In the second half of the year, you'll have Jupiter telling you
that you deserve more and that you should reach for the stars; and you'll have
Saturn reminding you that you have to "get real" and consider important details.
Luckily, these planets harmonize with each other much of the year, and this
helps you to find a very nice balance. You are also bringing more imagination to
the work you do, and your intuition can serve you very well. There will be times
this year when you need to consciously push yourself to go after what you want.
In the process, try your best to avoid worrying about coming across as "nice"
and "good". You are these things - you don't need to prove it. You don't
want to miss out on opportunities to advance out of fear of losing others'
approval. Love continues to challenge you this year by forcing you out of your
comfort zone from time to time, and particularly in May and October-November.
Mid-March to mid-April can bring surprising circumstances to your relationships.
Don't fall back on familiar patterns now - they won't work.
Mix things up and think outside of the box. However, if others are slipping in
and out of your life and you feel taken advantage of, do stand your ground. You
are likely to invest more heavily into home and family in 2013, and some of you
will be running home-related businesses or will be working from home. You
are cautious with your money, and this is necessary right now.
in 2013 continue some of the main themes as last year, dear Libra, although this
year the "ride" is a little easier. There continues to be an inclination to want
to bring a casual relationship to a committed level for some of you, but
committed partnerships require new "rules" and can be temperamental again this
Uranus in your partnership sector is a long-term influence that has the effect
of shaking up your relationships and your expectations from companions. It's
an area of life that can certainly be on shaky ground, but with extra care and
knowledge, it can also be an exciting period.
Uranus' aspects this year are
mostly challenging, suggesting some stress over relationships and
acclimatization necessary for the changes taking place. You are required to
change the rules of relationships, or eliminate them altogether. At the same
time, you have to take care of yourself, so that a balance is maintained. In
other words, give others space, but don't allow them to make rules for you. For
many Libras, a partner is going through big changes, and this in turn puts you
in the position of adapting. For single Libras, people who seem to be
partnership "material" can come into your life quite suddenly, but then exit it
quite suddenly as well; or, there can be a sense that others are unreliable.
Some of you will be attracting Aquarian or Uranian people into your relationship
experience, or you are attracted to these types of people.
You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and
possibly even eccentric or unstable as close partners; or you attract these
types of people into your experience without necessarily wanting to! You are
learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn't always easy,
particularly in May, August, and October-November, when disagreements about or
with family can surface. Relationships can be unpredictable at this time. As a
Libra, learning to detach yourself from some of the too-dependent elements of
partnering can be a difficult thing, but if you learn that you can in fact
subsist independently, you are more able to relate to others on a healthy level,
more able to choose what and who is right for you in a relationship, and less
likely to allow others to take advantage of your obliging nature.
With Saturn and the North Node of the Moon in your solar second house all year,
opposite your intimacy and sharing sector, the need to establish more
independence is reinforced further. You are learning to let go of the tendency
to define our own worth and values in terms of others and to be wrapped up in
the needs of others at the expense of your own needs. You are learning to
establish your self-worth through your own efforts.
Mars is the ruler of your partnership sector, and Mars' journey through your
solar chart during the course of the year can point to relationship tendencies
as well as possible places for meeting significant others in some cases. When
Mars is in your sign, people seem to come to you, or they are catering to your
needs more than usual. In 2013, this occurs from December 7th and into 2014 - in
fact, far into 2014, past the mid-year mark! Even so, Venus turns retrograde on
December 21st (until January 31, 2014), and love can quickly become complicated.
Any Venus retrograde period is especially significant to you, as Venus is
your ruler, and during this period, you may be reviewing your feelings.
