Love gets sweet ‘n light with Venus in loving Libra

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of venus, love, libra, astrology

Love planet Venus, which rules relationships, beauty and pleasure, moves into its home sign of loving Libra on Sept. 29, 2014, setting us up for a sweet time that highlights partnerships and social settings.

Venus in Libra is naturally harmonious. This is a time when we’re friendly, sociable, creative and our diplomatic skills peak. Libra is the most balanced sign, so this time always finds more of us striving to make sure things are fair and everyone is happy.

Libra is an Air sign, so it lends a breezy quality to love and partnerships of all kinds.  We’ll be polite and charming with one another, and peace will prevail. If you tend to argue a lot in your relationships, you will see less of that now.

That said, while relationships are bound to proceed smoothly with Venus in Libra, they won’t necessarily go very deep. This superficial quality comes into play because peacemaker Libra doesn’t want to rock the boat and might tell a few little while lies just to avoid upsetting anyone with the truth.

Compromise is a good thing, but do take extra care during this time to make sure you don’t sacrifice too much of your own needs for the sake of making someone else happy. Be fair to yourself, too!

In addition to creating more harmony in relationships, Venus in Libra is also very appreciative of the arts and beauty. So don’t be surprised if you spend more time than usual shopping for pretty things now or fussing to make your hair look good.

But there’s nothing wrong with that — you need to look good.  After all, Venus is in Libra so you probably have a dinner date!

Libra Lessons

Libra Lessons

Sun sign Libra is a valuable teacher to us all

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of sun, libra, blogs, astrology

 

Astrology does such an effective job defining our individual traits that we sometimes ignore the experiences we share together. For example, the Sun entered Libra on September 22, marking the first day of autumn or the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (Vernal Equinox) below the equator.

Its meaning can be interpreted in terms of collective events, in relationship to each of the 12 Sun signs or within the structure of a specific birth chart. Tracking trends in general, by group or individually, is the most common use of Astrology.

People who have consultations with professional astrologers or who purchase a computerized reading of their charts know that these can be rich sources of insight about themselves. The self-awareness we get from such astro-analyses, however, also leaves out a very important part of the story.

That is, in addition to interpretations of individual charts, Astrology provides a powerful set of instructions for tapping into larger patterns.

We can all learn from Libra’s characteristics

The Sun, for example, is now in Libra, where everyone, regardless of her or his sign, has access to this sign’s traits. The objectivity, sense of fairness, social graces and open-mindedness of Libra are not just for those born during the 30-day solar transit we’re now in. This is a period for all of us to learn about and develop the desirable characteristics of this sign so that we can use them whenever they’re needed.

If you’re stuck with a sense of separateness and feel like others are not cooperating with you, a little Libra lesson can help to overcome that isolation. First take a breath, and then take another one, nice and slow, easy and relaxed. The in-and-out of respiration reminds us of the duality of life, that every yin has some yang, and that there are at least two sides to every story. We are not fixed in a single state of mind when we recognize these ideas and we are not quite so alone in the universe. Libra, symbolized by scales, is about the relative nature of everything.

We can inculcate the desirable social qualities of Libra by the way that we walk. Instead of hurrying or plodding, find a comfortable pace and notice the shift of weight from one side of the body to the other. This model of cooperation in the body makes it easier for us to find appropriate ways to cooperate with others.

It also helps to heal the extremism of rigid beliefs and the notion of absolute right and wrong that condemns and separates from one another. I’m not suggesting that we discard our moral compasses, but that we acknowledge that none of us has all the answers, which reduces arguments and increases the chances for having civilized discussions. Libra is also about beauty, as represented by its ruling planet Venus. Noticing attractive things and people allows us to resonate with grace of this sign and to feel for beautiful ourselves.

Shifting into neutral

Libra teaches that we have the right to change our minds. As we shift and circumstances shift it’s only natural that our perceptions are altered. This flexible thinking goes a long way to transforming conflict into cooperation.

Lastly, a wonderful gift of Libra is the notion of neutrality. This position is very useful in a couple of ways. First, it frees us from needing to have an opinion on everything. It’s a place to step back, observe and assimilate information and emotions instead of compulsively reacting to every comment and circumstance.

Neutral is also a useful place to be when we want to alter our behavior. Stepping away from the past without committing to the future gives us breathing space. This allows us to distance ourselves from old habits without the pressure of taking on new ones.

Libra is about building bridges between opposing ideas, conflicting emotions and with people and organizations. It is not a sign of commitment, however, because it’s a season-starting Cardinal sign that’s about taking the first step in a new direction.

The values, challenges and complications we encounter are when the next sign, Scorpio, comes into the picture and choices need to be made, which we will explore next month

Planet Tracker: Sun in Libra, Sept. 22 to Oct. 23

Planet Tracker

Sun in Libra

Sep 22, 2014 to Oct 23, 2014

Libra, the Scales, is the sign of the Autumnal Equinox. It marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, arriving at the moment when the nights become longer than the days. This is not a time of turning away from the world. It is, rather, a period when relationships take on greater importance. Perhaps it is the lengthening night that reminds us of our dependency on one another and puts the focus on partnerships.

Socially sensitive
Ideally, Libra represents the dynamic balance of a healthy couple. This sign includes the principles of fairness, diplomacy and the recognition of others as equals. Librans, therefore, are very socially sensitive. They notice who is getting his or her share and who isn’t. They understand the role of give and take in the creation of harmonious communities.The desire for peace, though, can be so strong that honest communication becomes stifled. It is vital that we remember that moments of challenge and conflict are sometimes necessary for relationships to grow.

Venus-ruled Libra is traditionally associated with a sense of beauty and good taste. This is a period in which we benefit by paying more attention to how we are affected by our environment. It’s a good time for making your home or workplace more attractive. Outer harmony supports inner peace.

Libran battles
Libra has a sense of justice that can lead to non-violent political activism as expressed by Mohandas Gandhi, Lech Walesa, Jimmy Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt or Jesse Jackson. There are, too, more acerbic Librans, ranging from Oscar Wilde, John Lennon and Lenny Bruce to Janeane Garofalo, Eminem and Snoop Dogg.

Famous Libra singer-songwriters are Sting, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Will Smith. Many Libra actresses are doing well these days, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenna Elfman, Mira Sorvino, Neve Campbell, Alicia Silverstone, Joan Cusack and Kate Winslet. Matt Damon is another Libra who is prospering in the movie business. There are even two double Libra movie couples: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.

The world of sports has Librans Serena Williams, Martina Hingis, Mark McGwire and Evander Holyfield. Barbara Walters, Anne Rice, Sarah Ferguson and Luciano Pavarotti are other celebrities born under this sign.

Sun in Libra: Your cosmic guide to life with the Sun in Libra

Sun in Libra

Your cosmic guide to life with the Sun in Libra

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of fall, libra, astrology

 

Fall arrives in the northern hemisphere as the Sun moves into loving Libra on September 22, 2014, and it’s not just the days and nights that are equal — all of us become equals with the Sun in this balanced sign.

Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of love and beauty, so our attention turns to partnerships, relationships, arts and culture during this time. Gone is the critical vibe of the Virgo Sun we’ve been living under for the past month, so we can now enjoy a more relaxed and social season.

Those born from about Sept. 19-25 were born on the Virgo-Libra cusp, and those born from about Oct. 20-26 were born on the Libra-Scorpio cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.

Here’s how to make the most of that Libra lifestyle:

What to do: Who knows? We never met a Libra who could make up their mind about anything. There are just too many options to choose from! Everyone’s probably going to have more trouble making decisions while the Sun’s in Libra.

What to say: “You have a point, but… ” Balanced Libra sees both sides of every story, so we’re bound to be agreeable and disagreeable at the same time. Count on Libra to see your point and then come right back at you with another view, and most of us will take on this ability while the Sun’s in Libra.

Where to go: Shopping with friends! Beauty-loving Libra appreciates the finer things in life, so they’re always happiest while out on expeditions for pretty new fashions, home décor or nibbles from the gourmet food store. And you can bet friendly Libra will always have a friend or two in tow.

What to wear: Something relaxed and versatile that will work for any occasion. Libra needs chic, easy outfits that can hop from desk to dinner — or maybe to the beach or the gallery, or maybe even just for staying in on the couch. With the Sun in Libra you never know what’s next, so you’d best dress as middle-of-the-road as the sign itself.

What to buy: Clothing, shoes, makeup, hair products, furniture, art, antiques, musical instruments, fine wine — heck, with the Sun in Libra we should be telling you what NOT to buy. Ok: Don’t buy those five-toed sandal shoes. Admit it, they’re ugly, and Libra can’t for that, no can do.

What to watch out for: Libra energy can occasionally be too nice. They don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and they want everyone to be happy, so sometimes they refrain from telling a harsh truth that might rock the boat. We love that Libra diplomacy, but while the Sun’s in Libra we all need to remember to put our own needs first sometimes, too!

What to look forward to: Reconnecting with lots of friends in playful social settings. Gone is the Virgo Sun that’s been working us hard for the past month, so now it’s time to relax and enjoy the new season. Get out there to watch the leaves turn colors with all 200 of your best friends!

Your Weekly Astrology For September 22 – 28

Weekly Astrology: September 22-28, 2014

Life is too short to wait…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of sun, pluto, libra, leo, jupiter, astrology

 

Lighten up, take a risk, and open yourself up to new partnerships this week! There is plenty of incredible cosmic energy in store, and you don’t want to waste it!

Monday, Sept. 22: Sun in Libra and Pluto Direct

On Monday, the Sun enters relationship-oriented Libra, and Pluto turns direct after having been retrograde for several months. You might feel this as a cathartic release — as if the universe is giving you permission to exhale. Intensity was turned deeply inward while Pluto was retrograde, and now Pluto Direct puts you in a position to use what you’ve learned while traveling those internal depths to create positive changes in your world.

Wednesday, Sept. 23: New Moon in Libra

On Wednesday, the New Moon in Libra is far enough away from Uranus and Pluto to support instead of rattle partnership developments.

Thursday, Sept. 25: Jupiter in Leo trine Uranus

What should really make your mouth water, however, is Thursday. On this day, lucky Jupiter in Leo will be at a gorgeous trine to Uranus, the planet of sudden change. With a supportive connection like this you can count on a heavy dose of sudden and incredible luck in a certain area of your life. Understand that you are more likely to receive a reward if you’re willing to take a personal risk. Where in your life do you want to “win big?” It’s time to spin the wheel of fortune!

Saturday, Sept. 27: Mercury in Scorpio

On Saturday, Mercury enters Scorpio, and you can expect communication to focus on the deeper, more important matters.

Planet Tracker: Mercury in Libra, Sept. 1st to Sept. 27th

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Libra

Sep 1, 2014 to Sep 27, 2014

 

Mercury, the communication planet, should be feeling comfortable in the sociable air sign of Libra. The air element is very much about the mind and communication, so it fits very nicely with Mercury’s meaning. Libra is about building bridges and overcoming differences. It recognizes that there is more than one side to any question and seeks to harmonize opposing points of view. Diplomacy, then, is likely to be featured at this time, both in the larger public arena and in our personal lives.

Mercury in Libra can soften speech to ensure peaceful relationships. It’s necessary at times to bring down the noise level so that both sides can be heard. This is, therefore, a good time to heal wounds caused by misunderstandings or different views of reality.

The challenge of this period is that the tendency for being nice can sometimes overwhelm the necessity of being truthful. Being kind then becomes a barrier to real communication. Ideally, we can recognize (in Libra’s well-balanced manner) that there are many ways to connect with one another, and that agreement is not the only one. Expressing opposing points of view with respect and openness is a terrific way to strengthen any relationship. It is about being fair enough to yourself and others to both listen and be heard.

Famous folks born with Mercury in Libra include singers Bruce Springsteen, Olivia Newton-John, Cass Elliott, Art Garfunkel and ultra-charming Julio Iglesias. Actors Jeremy Irons, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Reeves, Richard Harris and Susan Sarandon are part of this group.

Sports stars Doug Flutie, Brett Favre and Scotty Pippen were born with Mercury in Libra, too. Writers Carrie Fisher, Stephen King, Michael Crichton and Ken Kesey have entertained us with their thoughts. David Copperfield has shown sleight of hand, Evel Knievel a crazy kind of courage and Larry Flynt more than we really want to see. Mercury in Libra is also found in the charts of artist Peter Max, comedian-activist Dick Gregory, director Penny Marshall and poet-statesman Vaclav Havel.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, September 10th

We want our actions to be practical today. However, we may have a hard time differentiating reality from what we desire. Although the ambitious Aries Moon encourages us to be proactive, we could build our plans on unrealistic visions as magnetic Venus opposes surreal Neptune. Our perceptions aren’t as accurate as we believe because of this heightened state of fantasy. We are drawn to experiences beyond the physical now, including magical encounters with music, poetry and nature.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you often know exactly what you want in love, your romantic goals aren’t very clear now. You could idealize your desires today, which is a lot of fun as long as you don’t assume they must be fulfilled. Too many concrete expectations hinder your current metaphysical journey. However, going with the flow may reward you with a very beautiful experience that can resonate in your heart for a long time to come.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may misread an emotional interaction today unless you’re paying careful attention to the subtle cues in every conversation. You might be feeling some ambiguity with respect to a developing relationship. Allowing your thoughts to wander around in the realms of possibility, although an enjoyable distraction, won’t necessarily lead to personal satisfaction. Instead, focus on the most immediate issues at hand in order to set your train back on the well-traveled tracks of reality.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Although you plan to discuss practical issues at work today, your colorful fantasies are so enticing that you have trouble staying on topic. You may assume your position is clear but your coworkers might misunderstand your message. Unfortunately, you could convince yourself that further explanation isn’t necessary. However, it’s easy to avoid problems by unfolding your ideas one at a time and asking for feedback as you go along. There’s no reason to bury your dreams as long as you keep them in check while discussing more mundane matters.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your schedule could fall apart at the seams today if you don’t allow time for everything that needs to be accomplished. You might not be as prepared as you prefer as people aren’t sharing their expectations with you. Instead of floundering your way through the day in uncertainty, ask concrete questions to receive specific answers. Your friends and associates may surprise you with their down-to-earth responses that can save the day.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You could be living in a bubble of fantasy, even if you believe your self-assessment is grounded in reality. It may even be challenging to get a clear handle on what you can bring to the table. Unfortunately, facts are colored by your feelings now, and it’s nearly impossible to separate your objective perceptions from subjective opinions unless you make a conscious decision to do so. Thankfully, the potential for creating meaning in your life grows stronger when your intuitive visions are fully integrated.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Normally, you can deftly manage the details of a complex project and keep all the separate tasks in order. However, it may be more effective now to save your critical analysis for another time. Instead of trying to limit your thoughts, give yourself permission to space out and explore unknown territory. Your imagination is your greatest asset today, so don’t be afraid to put it to work. The most creative solutions to your current dilemmas will be the ones that arise out of unstructured thinking. Listening to your intuition allows you to tap into your unexpressed ingenuity.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are quite introspective today as your key planet Venus takes center stage in your 12th House of Privacy. If you must spend the day with others, you can still withdraw into your dream world while appearing as socially astute as ever. However, balancing your work obligations with your current desire to be alone might be a challenge. It’s not an either / or proposition; you can collaborate with your peers and still retreat into your imagination for inspiration whenever you wish.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may have a very specific idea about which activities you want to share with your friends now, but your job might not give you the freedom you desire. You’re not one to run out on your responsibilities once you have made a heartfelt commitment. However, you can rearrange your schedule to finish up your work early without negatively impacting your productivity. Following through on your word is vital to your integrity, but so is pursuing your dreams.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Conditions on the home front can be all too confusing, but they aren’t your biggest problem today. Things are not as they appear now and it’s tricky to gauge the relative importance of a particular thought. Taking a clever idea and turning it into an overly complicated strategy won’t make it any more successful. Keep your message simple and succinct. Misunderstandings that come to light in the next few days will make you glad that you strive for simplicity today.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Other people attempt to use ambitious schemes to lure you away from your previous commitments today. Unfortunately, you could grow overwhelmed if you can’t control your personal desires. There are days when you can build the road as well as travel along it. However, today’s planetary patterns are meant for exploring territories that are off the beaten track. Spend a bit of time wandering around, knowing that you’ll be back on the highway and heading toward your destination again in just a few days.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although you have specific goals and a concrete plan in place, you can’t seem to find the inner resolve to achieve your goals today. People can see a gentler side of you as your hidden emotional tenderness slips through the cracks in your defenses. Instead of fighting it, consciously let others inside your otherwise impenetrable walls. Vulnerability is your strength now, not your weakness.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Today you might fall in love with a beautiful person, a spiritual practice or a fleeting vision. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that you can tell the difference between reality and fantasy now. Nevertheless, fact and fiction might just morph into a magical moment that opens your heart. Don’t try to figure out what’s happening; just relax and enjoy the experience. Untangle the threads in the tapestry of life on another day after the clouds of illusion drift away.
