Libra, The Balance
September 23 to October 23

Modality: Cardinal
Element: Air
Ruler: Venus

Keywords: Balanced, just, charming, diplomatic, artistic, sociable, passive, indecisive, sophisticated, accommodating, kind, likable, respectful

As a Libra you are a charming people-pleaser. You make a natural mediator, not only putting people at ease in any situation but also making sure that peace and harmony are kept. You view things objectively and with a sharp mind, but you can be tripped up by your own indecisiveness in your quest for fairness. You have an eye for sophistication and beauty, being ruled by Venus, and will never be seen in less than your best.

Libras enjoy a wide circle of friends and contacts, but your partner is your true anchor; your relationship with your partner is far stronger than any other you have, and you dislike doing anything without them. You feel lonely without a companion. This strong need for a soul mate may make you confuse lust for love. Your opposite sign, Aries, could be the ultimate match, but a Leo or Sagittarius are compatible as well.

A career working with public would suit you well, and a job with a friendly, social workplace is a must. You can expect many career-related changes throughout your life, but you easily stay on top of jobs and trends with your intuition. You do have excellent wealth potential through wise financial management; this shouldn’t be a problem for you, as you are thrifty and judge each purchase before it is made.

You have a strong intuition, and this “gut feeling” shouldn’t always be ignored in favor of weighing yourself down by a list of pros and cons.

For the year ahead:

Affirmation: Relationships are important, but I value my independence.

  • Jupiter began its year-long transit of Cancer (your tenth house) in June. This transit highlights your career and your relationships with elders, including family members. In July of 2014, Jupiter moves into Leo and your eleventh house; here, expect your social circle and popularity take center stage.
  • Saturn continues its multi-year journey through Scorpio, your second house of personal resources. You may find your finances getting tighter, but you may simultaneously becoming more thrifty and budget-conscious, and being satisfied with less rather than more.
  • Uranus is in Aries, where it will remain until 2018. Here in your seventh house, you can expect changes (the trademark of Uranus) in your close relationships (seventh house themes). Some long-term relationships will end, while new people will enter your life. Uranus in the seventh house is also known for “love at first sight” relationships, which may be in your future.
  • Pluto in Capricorn, your fourth house, brings about significant changes in home and family. This could mean relocation, remodeling, or even just reflecting on your childhood and family life. This transit is a long one (until 2024), so this transformation will not be a rapid one.
