Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Libra: A tough, beautiful, important month is ahead of us with powerful Eclipses to be glimpsed across the US. But before we get into it, to briefly mention a couple things--Mercury shall retrograde on the 13th in Virgo, in your house of repressions and secret matter, which is an ideal position for Mercury to be in as Retrograde. You can take the best advantage of its backward principles here. With ease you'll be able to look within and to understand things that eluded you before when you were more distracted. The theme here is inner focus and this can be achieved. Your ruler, Venus, is also involved in a tight opposition with Pluto this month which is the composition for tragedy under grace, the Romeo and Juliet pairing of aspects. For you this falls on your axis of power, the very spine of your horoscope, which unites the house of career with that of core being, Pluto languishing at the site of core development, Venus at the apex, the Midheaven. Pluto really suggests here an overhaul of your deepest psyche, a confrontation of trauma, embracing of the difficult, painful things in the universe with love, with abandon--and Venus here suggests that you manifest your wisdom in the world, perhaps through a major career opportunity which is in need of your own deepest inner recesses and from which in order to succeed you cannot hide away. A relationship might also be key here, one which threatens your stability, which upsets your very hold on yourself, but the relationship in this instance is more like a bridge between your inner and outer selves; a reconciliation might be possible this month. But so much more goes on! The Lunar Eclipse shall occur on August 7th at 15 degrees Aquarius in your house of creativity, love affairs, children, speculation, opposed to Mars in your house of greater social integration, and supported by Jupiter from your very own house of self where Jupiter languishes in Libra. I do believe that social advancement is possible, yes, with Mars' position, that the pushing of your dreams into the world map might be a theme. Though it suggests the core motivation is more personal; Jupiter after all is working to expand your inner consciousness, your identity, not your placement in the world at the moment, and the Moon alights and brings into clear focus your desires for a more loving, accountable, interested life. At this time many things are possible--a pregnancy or birth, a new love, sweet time spent with your children, a renewed interest in what you really love. Then on August 21st there is a very active, dynamic Solar Eclipse which unites the fire signs through Mars and the twin power of the Sun and Moon in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius. Now Saturn has been troubling your mind for sometime, it has long been in the position of depression (though it moves on this December!) but here this Eclipse brings an outpouring, a release--the fire energy burns away--yes, that is its meaning here, I'm convinced. The depressive, meditative, burdensome matters of the mind shall be burned away. But how? Uranus always calls for that, but is especially empowered in the last decante of Aries, for you the house of others, while the Sun and Moon call for timing and Mars the efforts of your blunt ego from the house of social engagement. So, you are brought out of yourself by relationship, by involvement in the world. You are called on to not dwell so much, to let go your deepest fears, and embrace life. That is the message, do with it what you will.
