Astrology Talk: Libra Season

Happy Birthday to all my Libra Babies!
(September 23 - October 22)


We say goodbye to the feminine, mutable earth sign of Virgo where we spent time discovering ourselves and the many layers of who we are. During Virgo we were able to learn how to clean up our spaces and make little refinements to our blueprints of self. 

Now we welcome the 7th astrological sign of the Zodiac. The Masculine, cardinal air sign of Libra where we will spend the next month in absolute stillness and balance. Perfect timing with this Autumn Equinox. The next 28.5 days will be a time to connect with your inner self and get in touch with your inner peace. Are You Ready to work in the garden of all of your relationships, including the relationship with yourself?

When working with a masculine duality, the signs characteristics are direct and energetic which pairs nicely with a cardinal (initiator) air sign ( intellectual and communicative). Putting these all together to create a Libra, we get: a direct, outgoing, active, communicator. 

Libra is ruled by the planet of Venus. Venus is the Goddess of Love and Beauty. During her season, Libra finds ways to find a balance in everything she does with grace, harmony, and love. It's effortless for Libra to find a space where she is undisturbed because she is in a constant place of harmony. With Libra, everything is as it should be in this exact moment. The Symbol of Libra, the scales, represent balance and order. The written symbol, or glyph, is an ancient Egyptian symbol that offered as a doorway between worlds. the glyph is shown as a crescent moon resting between two lines that represent emotion balanced by reason, while the line below represents partnership. 

We see Libra govern the 7th House of Marriage and Partnership. When aligning with Libra energy we find more balance in our relationships and our communication skills are better. Libra seeks information, clarity, and truth as she navigates through each of her relationships whether that is her partner, co-worker, family, children, or herself. She teaches us empathy, patience, and calmness. When Venus, Libra's Ruler, is in the 7th House, we look for fulfillment and peace in our relationships/marriage. This is the time to tap into your communication skills and gain new perspectives on how to find understanding with others point of views. Find Harmony and open communication when speaking to others and to yourself. Find Balance. If you find yourself in a position of judgement, or labeling - try taking a step back and find a new perspective. There are always 2 sides and Libra teaches us to understand them. 

Libra doesn't run scared. She doesn't hide or take cover when facing adversity. She goes head strong into her truth and her power by staying quiet and leading with grace. She has no time for conflict, unlike her polarity, or opposite, Aries. 

Libra does have a shadow side though, so proceed with caution, especially if your sun sign does fall in Libra. Libra is so captivating and full of love, that she tends to stir up ill feelings from others in situations that have to do with love. When it comes to decision making, this is not a Libras strong suit. Her indecisive  mind often leads her to hand her power over to another. 

While we are in Libra, this is the time to dig deep into your soul and sit in complete stillness. Allow yourself to go to a place that transcends you into complete awareness. Are your relationships at the level you want them to be? Do you need to cut relationships off or do you need to make some changes that will help grow your relationships in a positive direction? What is your relationship with yourself? Do you know who you are? Do you treat yourself with love and compassion? How can you move forward and find that balance?

Even if you don't have a Libra Sun, Libra Moon, or Libra Acendant (Look in Natal Chart) - I encourage you to take this time to slow down. We are in the Autumn Equinox which reminds us to slow down and embrace the changes that this season brings us. Find truth in all of your relationships, especially the one with yourself. Move forward into complete love and harmony. Libra is waiting to guide you. Let's get to work...

Love Yourself, Love other People, Love, Love, Love!
