I used to complain strenuously about the folly of trying to fill our empty spaces with another person’s gifts. But if you marry a person who is good at the things you’re not, they just might help you develop those qualities yourself.
When I think about befriending people whose opinions, lifestyles, or politics are abhorrent to me, some flinty part of me digs in its heels and refuses to give in, loathe to give the impression of surrender. Why do most of us find it so difficult to befriend our enemies—and why is that those with Libra prominent in their birth charts often succeed where we fail?…
The Libra New Moon is close to Jupiter, which recently entered Libra for a one-year stay. Astrologers rejoiced when Jupiter left Virgo, figuring that since Jupiter is supposed to be a “lucky” planet and Libra is the sign of relationships, everything would soon be coming up rainbows and unicorns. But anytime someone starts talking about how wonderful a transit is going to be, it makes me itchy….
“Going gently” sums up Libra’s approach to the world. It appears as elegant touches in unexpected places, moving with grace, choosing the nice shirt, setting things down carefully, coaxing the cat. It’s in the little ways of approaching life with a spirit of beauty and grace, smoothness and quiet.
These are times that call for collective action, and we’re fortunate that the generation born with Pluto in Libra has a gift for collaboration that surpasses anything we’ve seen in my lifetime. It’s going to be up to them to help us remember the power, responsibility, and redemption of living as a society.
