LIBRA FORECAST (9/22 – 10/22/20)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!  You’re the shining star this month – step into the spotlight & enjoy the attention!  With the Sun now in your sign, you’ll be acknowledged & appreciated for your natural charm, sweetness & tact — a port in the storm for those in need of a calm & caring friend.  Put some energy into polishing your self-image and enhancing your appearance, particularly from 10/16 on (New Moon in LIBRA); beautify yourself and your immediate environment!You’ll want to channel some energy into partnership & teamwork interactions as the Full Moon builds to a peak on 10/1; aim for increased consensus, equality & fair play in all your one-on-one relationships. With Mars in your opposite sign (ARIES), you may be challenged to explore new & improved ways of relating, especially on 9/29, 10/9 & 18.  Pay special attention to any feedback coming your way, as it could increase your self-understanding and bring more inner peace & equilibrium.

Your social life has been quite lively since 9/6, when your planet, Venus, entered vibrant LEO.  Friends, collaborative activities and cultural events can bring you much pleasure.  The Venus-Mars trine on 9/28 may inspire a particularly sparkling & romantic day!  Once Venus moves on to VIRGO on 10/2, work & health matters will become more of a priority. You’ll want to get more involved with cleaning out the closets & drawers, sorting, filing and putting things where they belong. Stop procrastinating and get your life in order!  Real magic could happen when Venus makes positive trines to Uranus (10/10), Jupiter (10/19) and Pluto (10/21); roll up your sleeves and clear the decks!

From 9/27 on, you’ll become more mentally-focused on getting your personal finances, feelings and dietary habits under control (with Mercury entering SCORPIO).  Balance your bank statements, pay bills and stock up on necessities. Take a deeper look into your nutritional needs, and nurture yourself in all ways!  Once Mercury turns retrograde on 10/13, it would be wise to re-assess your resources, as well as expenditures.  Clear out those possessions that no longer give you pleasure — make way for the new!  Any stalled projects on the home front can get restarted after 9/28, and partnerships could get a new lease on life from 10/4 onward.  Have a fulfilling new year ahead!LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll be trying out different approaches in the way you take care of business.  During this 7-year cycle, financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.  Avoid surprises and seek legal counsel in business dealings & contracts.  You could receive an unexpected inheritance.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

On 3/21/20, Saturn took its initial steps into AQUARIUS (until 7/1/20), giving you a taste of things to come once it settles back down there on 12/16/20.  You’ll likely be committing yourself to new projects, creative endeavors or business ventures.  It’s the time to put serious efforts into getting something significant off the ground.  Take some well-calculated risks and allow your enterprising spirit to make things happen.  Manifest some long-held dreams!  With patient, disciplined and conscientious efforts, you will be able to move mountains.  Children could play a more prominent role in your life during this cycle and re-awaken you to your playful, fun-loving self.

With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, home, family & property matters will be in an expansionary mode; you’ll want to promote increased comfort, stability and security in your base of operations.  This is an ideal time to build, remodel, redecorate, garden, buy or sell real estate, move to a larger place or even relocate to a foreign country.   You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/071/5/09).  Once Jupiter moves on to AQUARIUS on 12/16/20, a creative, entrepreneurial  spirit will stimulate new hobbies, business enterprises or romantic adventures!
