Happy Birthday Libra!
September 25, 2015
As a Libra, your guardian planet is Venus, which explains why you so deeply prize grace, refinement, cleanliness, polished manners, art and culture, refinement and beauty. Yet over the past few years, you have seen a side of life that was anything but soft and refined, for you were under a barrage of difficult planetary aspects going back as far as July 2009.
From October 2009 to October 2012, Saturn came by to teach you tough life lessons. You were barely done with Saturn when an extreme family of eclipses started up in Aries-Libra from October 2013, arriving every six months—your eclipses are due to finish with the last, March 2016. Uranus has opposed your Sun since March 2011, and that trend will continue for several more years, but not for all Libras—most have paid their dues.
During these periods, you learned that occasionally life can be unfair—always a shocking discovery for the sign symbolized by the scales of justice—and that life is not always calm and soft, but more often a difficult process of learning through trial and error. Think back to where you were prior to October 2009 and how far you’ve come in maturity and wisdom since then. Be proud!
You now stand on the threshold of 2016 leaner, stronger and with an aura of powerful authority. You can use all that you learned in coming years, and your life will be far better for having gone through those experiences. Your expectations are more realistic, and your resolve has been strengthened.
Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, is now in your twelfth house of behind-the-scenes, indicating that influential people are likely to go out of their way to see you get ahead. At times you may not know they are helping you, as they may want to remain anonymous. The twelfth house is also one of psychological and physical heath and healing.
You come into your own when Jupiter moves from Virgo to Libra on September 9, 2016 to stay until October 10, 2017. Jupiter has not crowned you celestial favorite since October 2004 to October 2005, so this may be a very important and joyous period for you. You would be wise to spend the first eight months of 2016 to reflect on what you hope will happen next in your life so that you can manifest it. During that preparation period, you will begin to delete parts of your life that no longer hold the fascination they once did for you when you were younger. If you don’t do the necessary process of elimination, the universe will do it for you—trust in the wisdom of the universe.
Don’t be concerned if certain parts of life begin to be taken out with the tide from now until September 2016—you need to make room for all the goodies the universe holds for you. The universe will leave what is relevant and take only what is outworn and no longer of future importance to you. When Jupiter moves into Libra, it will mark one of the finest, most enchanting years of your life, and it will make up for so much that you have endured in past years.
You may travel overseas to at least one exciting city, for Jupiter will want to expand your horizons. Your health is likely to become stronger, and you will be more optimistic. You could find yourself at the right place at the right time to take advantage of dazzling career opportunities, which will be a big plus to getting ahead.
In matters of love, if you are single you may have your very best year in over a decade to find true love, and you’ll have 12 months to discover this person. Keep in mind this trend starts September 9, 2016. If you are dating, enter into any new relationship slowly—this includes business partnerships. This will be especially true if your birthday falls from October 12-22, for Uranus is, and will continue to be, opposed to your Sun. What you first assume to be true about your partner may not be accurate. By going slowly, you will protect your heart. This is a once-in-a-lifetime aspect that will leave 2019, never to return in your lifetime.
In the meantime, you will learn to be a fine judge of character, for the universe is tutoring you in this area. Venus, your ruler, was retrograde last year but will be strong from now on, so you won’t be as frustrated by delays and mix-ups in matters of love and relationships this year.
Saturn will tour your third house and will teach you to write, speak, edit or communicate in a new way, in a new venue. Saturn can be an insistent teacher and will demand almost all of your attention to improve your new skills, but what you learn while you have Saturn near will stay with you forever. Your communication style will sharpen and become more effective. If you work in sales, public relations, social media, marketing or telecommunications, you are likely to benefit, too. This is a gentle, three-year trend that you may enjoy very much because Saturn will be in fire-sign Sagittarius, that will blend well with your air-sign Sun sign, Libra, so you will absorb the teachings of Saturn easily and willingly. The third house also rules siblings, so you may need to pay special attention to any of your siblings.
Finally, financially you might see a strong uptick. You have had Saturn holding down your income while in Scorpio, from October 2012 to September 17, 2015. Saturn has left Scorpio and will not return until 2041, decades from now. Your outlook for prosperity could not be better.
On just about every level, life should improve for you, just wait and see!
