Libra New Moon: The Leap of Love

Posted by & filed under Jupiter, Libra, Lunar Phases, New Moon.

The Libra New Moon is close to Jupiter, which recently entered Libra for a one-year stay.

Saturn by Sign: Where Does Your Authority Come From?

Posted by & filed under Learning Astrology, Planets, Saturn, Zodiac Signs.

Saturn’s sign in your birth chart seems to indicate the qualities that make people take you seriously and from which you derive your authority.
