Libra \ July
(September 23rd- October 22nd)
Change is something that is forced on a Libra because of its neighboring signs; Virgo and Scorpio, are noted for their ability to embrace the unexpected. Thus, surrounded by souls that take risks, they will have to let go and give up playing it safe. The lesson is to shift, explore and play, but to do so you need a center. To find the core of your being, all opposites need to be embraced within you: good vs. bad, right vs. wrong, safety vs. risk – and the list goes on. Your truth, how you see the world, is the center spoke of your scale of justice. Once you’re anchored in this truth, the rest falls into place. When you know what you stand for and who you are, decisions are no longer difficult to make, you have something concrete to rely on, to measure the world against. And that center is your source of strength.
With the Sun at the top of your chart, the world will take notice of your magnificence. The Sun is in trine to Jupiter and Neptune, so certain things will happen without effort. Career, finances and work are in harmony and they will bring you great rewards. This magic is only the first two weeks of the month, so make sure you tap into it and use it to your advantage. That means if you need to be heard, speak up. If you feel you have an investment and it meets your criteria – make it. Finish the work you have on your desk and it will begin to bring you a return. Of course, there are obstacles that surround this wonderful trine, but it’s up to you to decide what you focus on – success or problems.
Relationships are difficult this month with Mars, the ruler of your 7th house, in square to Uranus. If you’re in a partnership, then don’t be surprised if he or she is going through some soul searching. If you have a lot that is unresolved between you, then now is the time to deal with it. Nothing ever disappears, it just goes deeper and festers and comes out uglier than before. Learn not to put off unpleasant issues, deal with them when they happen and you’ll set the stage for a happy life. If you’re single, then you will meet an angry person who is resolving old issues with relationships that are over or ending. If that’s okay with you, then it’s okay.
Mercury goes retrograde on the 26thin the sign of Leo, your house of friendships. It goes direct on August 19th. During this time people from your past may appear. You may find that communication is difficult or full of errors. In fact, getting any new project to advance is a challenge. If you have to sign a contract, of course, go ahead and do it. However, if you can wait until Mercury goes direct there will be less changes and surprises as you move forward.
