The Sun in Libra Forecast

By Sharita Star

As our Sun enters the Cardinal Air Sign Libra, we celebrate the Autumn Equinox and officially say goodbye to another summer season. Venus, our planet of love that admires all things beautiful, is the ruler of the 7th sign on the Zodiac wheel. Symbolized by the Scales, Libra represents the perfected idea of justice with the intention of balance being their guiding light.

With charm and a friendly nature, relationships are one area a Libra seeks to bring a union to, always yearning for the marriage of spirit and matter. They cast a loving approach to any situation, typically at the forefront of causes that are of benefit to humanity. Adept at leadership, our Scales natives innately see both sides of the issue at hand, and make excellent judges.

This harmony-seeking sign carries a strong sense of idealism through the guidance of Venus just like their Zodiac “cousin” Taurus. Both are admirers of nature and beauty; but unlike a patient and steadfast Taurus, Libra’s airy persona seeks security through their relationships rather than the grounded material plane. Wherever there is a place to adjust, negotiate and compare, you’ll find a Libra appropriately displaying a diplomatic manner.

When their Scales are unbalanced, Libra's possess the potential to fall to vanity, dramatic reactions, insincerity, and co-dependency. Cultivating firmness, decisiveness and consistency will allow their acute mental energy to find it’s proper focus. All areas of the intellectual plane stimulates a Libra’s interest. Gravitation to the arts, meditation, and music are the channels that grant their peace to flow- tipping those Scales back to an even weight.

Each of us has the chance to embrace the balance of Libra’s energy by looking to the house that it rules in our individual birth chart. This is the area of life where we can see an extra boost while the Sun transits through it. Up until 9/27, Mercury also grants excellent communications and thinking where Libra sits in our own chart. A renewal within this area of the life on an emotional level can be see upon the New Moon 10/10-11.

Renewals for the collective continue as Mercury goes Retrograde 10/11-12 until November 1st, marking its’ third and final reassessment period for 2007. Retrograding from 09 degrees Scorpio to 23 degrees Libra, our Messenger planet can bring upheavals to skeptical and secretive mentalities; as it revisits Libra it strives for the collective to reflect upon ideals and harmony-seeking mindsets. The Libra and Scorpio ruled houses in the birth chart will see adjustments and point to the area of life it is best to place a personal focus of those Retrograde RE’s such as REdoing and REfreshing.

Mars moves forward into nurturing, sensitive and imaginative Cancer upon 9/28. Desires and drives on the collective lean to an intuitive nature; heightening the tendency for emotional energies to be stirred while it is wise to steer clear of clinging and brooding behaviors. The application of courage rather than aggression is key when looking to where Cancer’s energy sits in one’s birth chart. This area indicates where Mars is stimulating our individual natures to gravitate to an instinctive approach until Mars, who begins a two and a half month Retrograde period beginning November 15th, reenters stirring Gemini upon New Year’s Day, 2008.

May you seek to understand others as you bring balance and sincerity to your life throughout the month ahead.
