Libra – September 23 – October 22
Your sign, like Taurus, is ruled by Venus. In the monthly roundups, pay close attention to its transits and the angles other planets are making to it, and to your sun sign. Venus won’t be retrograde this year and that means it makes it through all twelve signs and visits three signs twice. You’ll have three really stellar periods this year when Venus transits Aquarius and the romance/creativity section of your chart twice and then again when it transits your sign. Those dates: March 1-26; September 14- October 8; and December 20 to January 14, 2020.
A bit of anxiety
This month’s energy is focused on earth sign Capricorn, the worker of the zodiac. It’s probably not your favorite kind of energy, but you can start putting it to use on January 4, when Mercury enters Capricorn and the domestic area of your chart. From then until the 24th, you’re determined to finish up any home improvement projects that lingered from last year. You may have to place tighter restrictions on your kids to get them back into the school mindset now that the holidays are over.
Before the solar eclipse in Capricorn on January 5, you may be feeling some anxiety and tension. This powerful eclipse brings new opportunities for your home life – the sale of your home, a move, a shift in living arrangements. But with Pluto conjunct within five degrees, there may be power plays involved with an authority figure. Neptune in Pisces forms a beneficial angle to the eclipse degree, so some type of spiritual or artistic endeavor may be part of the larger picture.
Uranus turns direct in Aries on January 6 and is sharing the partnership area of your chart with energetic Mars, which entered that sign on December 31, 2018. The two planets aren’t conjunct, but they feed off of each other and attract unusual and idiosyncratic people. You and your partner may come up with some terrific ideas before Uranus moves into Taurus in March. Keep track of them. They may come in handy.
On the 7th, Venus enters compatible fire sign Sagittarius and from then until February 3, your creativity is fueled by your passion for whatever you’re doing. Communication is heightened, particularly with neighbors and siblings. In a romantic relationship, your need for independence and freedom is accentuated.
The 21st features a lunar eclipse in Leo. This type of eclipse concerns our inner worlds, our emotions, and you may react to something a friend says about a creative endeavor in which you’re involved. Avoid drama. Let the remark roll away from you. That may not be easy to do, but if you pursue it, you may regret it later.
Mercury enters fellow air sign Aquarius on the 24th and from then until February 10, your conscious focus in on romance and love. Aquarius is an idiosyncratic sign that can spot cutting edge trends before anyone else does, so jot down any unusual ideas that come to you. Be vigilant for synchronicities.
