The Moon is in Libra all day.
Venus squares Uranus very early into the day, and there can be some
disruptive, but possibly eye-opening experiences in our relationships. In the
morning, Venus trines Saturn and then Chiron. Affections stabilize and mature,
and we tend to slow down and appreciate stability rather than excitement. It's a
strong time for building trust in relationships, and for seeing potential in
one another. We are feeling more competent, effective, and secure, and we have a
strong sense of both tradition and innovation. Later today, Mars squares
Jupiter, and we can put pressures on ourselves to get a whole bunch of things
going. Enthusiasm is good, but we should avoid overloading or overshooting.
We might be too quick to make decisions and to form opinions or judgments. We
can also be so focused on what we think should be that we
lose sight of what is possible. The inclination towards taking risks is strong, and
patience is short.
There can be a strong focus on taking care of business this month, dear Libra, but also a lot of dedication to your family and home life. While you are likely to be doing a satisfactory job of balancing your personal and professional lives, if these areas are out of whack, the Full Moon on the 12th will point you in the right direction, whether this is via an event or personal epiphany. After spending a year in your professional sector, Jupiter moves into your friendship and happiness zone this month, beginning a new year-long cycle that can significantly improve your social life. Get ready to network!
The coming year can be especially strong for communications project launches.
From mid-July, very good energy is with you for making nice with parents and
bosses, and for career and business efforts that require a personal touch. After a very long visit, Mars leaves your sign on the 25/26. Your independent side has been accentuated since December, but now, some of your rough edges soften and there is
considerably less pressure on you to take action. Venus at the top of your chart
from the 18th further helps to soften your image. Even so, you are still very much concerned with being treated with more respect,
as you should be. As well, much of July, you are concentrating on your own needs more than usual, and this might indirectly cause some disruptions in your personal life. Money can be earned through traditional sources, but you're becoming more assertive about earning what you feel is your share.
Harness the energy of the New Moon on the 26th to start fresh with friends and
2014, you're learning a lot about independence and self-assertion, dear Libra.
You may have discovered that people are not always reliable, or that you can't
always depend on a partner, but the more important discovery now is that you can
stand on your own and succeed quite well. Fiery, assertive Mars in your sign for
the first half of the year provides you with extra motivation, energy, and power
to move your personal plans forward. You could surprise those around you who are
used to your typically more conciliatory approach to life, as you are now
learning to go after what you want. However, there are hurdles, particularly
from March to mid-May. Energy may be wasted, or you could feel as if you're
spinning your wheels. You could second-guess your personal goals or your own
confidence. You might also be dealing with a temperamental partner. Desires can
be complicated, and you might often feel frustrated as you don't know where to
direct your energies. Learn about resentments and anger during this period.
You'll have two more months after the retrograde to sort everything out, and
personal plans can be put on the front burner again. This year and well into the
next bring big lessons about relationships, dependency issues, and
self-assertion. You'll be seeking a balance, but along the way, there can be
extremes of behavior. Career matters are very favorable this year. You are
noticeable and you make a real impact on others. Those in authority tend to look
on you favorably. Communications, promotion, and word of mouth are especially
beneficial. You're feeling more responsible and competent, and others recognize
these traits as well. There can be recognition for mental projects, writing,
public speaking, or ideas. Most of the attention you're getting now is positive.
Even so, the second half of the year can feel much easier all around for many of
you. Pressures are off - it's a more anonymous time in many ways, as you are
valued for your ability to get along with others more than for your
accomplishments and performance. There is a nice feeling of contentment, yet
also a subtle pressure-free desire to formulate long-term "happiness" goals as
well as openness to change and progress. You're more willing to contribute to
group efforts and to your community. Friends can be very helpful and enjoyable
during this cycle that is with you well into 2015. Your innate idealism is
stimulated. You're reaching out to others and you are well-received.
Finances require better organization and more detailed attention again this
year. You could be feeling a pinch at times, and this is actually a good thing,
as it's a great time to find ways to save. Do whatever you can to minimize
worries in this area of your life. Your love life can be complicated or up and
down in the first half of the year as you struggle with defining your desires
and needs, but big improvements are likely in the second half, when there is
easier, less demanding, and less draining energy for relating. September forward
brings beautiful energy to your social life. New connections made now are
progressive, forward-looking, and beneficial, often mutually beneficial. You
have an enterprising spirit and a strong sense of fairness. Your romantic life
can be quite enjoyable, and your popularity can increase.
In the first half of the year, people in your life may barely recognize you
at times, as there are strong influences on you that bring out perhaps unseen or
rarely seen elements of your personality to the fore. For one thing, Mars is in
your sign for an extended stay, until July 25th. This influence that began in
December 2013 brings out your more assertive, go-getting, spontaneous, and
possibly even volatile qualities. You are more direct, open, and sometimes
impatient during this cycle. You want to have your way, and while Libras are
known for their compromising ways, unacknowledged or buried desires now tend to
As well, Venus, your ruler, is retrograde at the beginning of the year and
until January 31st, and some of your naturally pleasing and appeasing traits are
more difficult to see during this period.
Mars, the planet of energy, anger, activity, and sexuality, begins to move
"backwards" (retrograde) in your own sign from March 1-May 19. During this
cycle, you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in
adventurous ways. You may be second-guessing yourself, and this is a natural
process as you reassess how you have been going about meeting life and
reacting/acting. It's a good time for refining these things. You could be a
little tired and more accident-prone, so be sure to rest up. It's time to
rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. How you assert yourself and how you
go about going after what you want out of life are two things that are up for
review now. You are also examining the way anger has helped or impaired your
life, and coming up with new ways to manage it. In the process, you can
experience some real frustrations. The end result, ideally, is a much-improved
you. Slowly but surely, from May 19th forward, you regain your confidence,
finding that you believe in yourself for solider reasons than you did before.
With the North Node in your sign from February forward, this theme of
learning to be independent is reinforced. Your challenge is to learn how to rely
on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity. This does not
mean excluding a partner from your life. It simply means that in order to
experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building internal peace,
rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. It's
time to take care of yourself and discover or re-discover your true needs and
Again this year, 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 April and December, 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.
Jupiter moves into your friendship zone in mid-July, making the second half
of the year lighter and more sociable. This generally brings new or improved
friendships into our lives, which should be the case for you, but because
Jupiter forms a nice aspect with Uranus, ruler of your romance sector, which is
in your partnership sector, this can influence your romantic life. This may not
bring committed relationship energy into your world, but it certainly can help
you to embrace the changes that Uranus is bringing to the world of your
relationships. Some of you could be meeting a partner through a friend,
partnering with a friend, or enjoying improved relations with a significant
other. There is happier energy for dating as well. You are experimenting with
relationships and attitudes that you never explored before, and opening your
mind to new possibilities...
