Der Zirkus – Georges Seurat {{PD}}

Welcome to the fun-house, Scorpio (if you’re a Libra born the 23rd, please see the Born Today for the 22nd). This year, through to your next birthday, may be one intense ride toward fulfillment of one or more of your goals–or at the very least, toward launching something important in your life. The good news? Your choices will be smart and likely result in reward or profit of one kind or another. The less good news? Reasoning may be flawed, which could set up problems for later (and consider that you may choose well but then delay success through poor planning). If you’re not working toward a material triumph of some kind, you may be called on (even forced) to devote a lot of time and energy to relationships, which may feel ‘new’ even when they’re not, making it all that much tougher to sort out. But, it will be an amazing year where chances are high Love or Money comes your way, and your creativity and ability to heal and make progress are tested. Happy Birthday, and good luck!

For a variety of individuals, this eclipse, at 00 Scorpio, may fall on a natal body, and for large numbers of people, it may fall on slow-moving natal Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto. For eclipse contact by conjunction, use no more than a 3 degree orb no matter which natal body or point is involved. Of course, this links the eclipse ‘New Start’ to the planet’s expression, but also to the House(s) ruled by the planet in the natal chart; watch the matters of this/ these House(s) over the coming 6 months, through to the next eclipse set. The matters of these Houses are where that wise and valuable beginning offered by this eclipse is likely to make big effects felt. Considering this event falls in Scorpio, we may be looking for a new beginning that is something of a resurrection or re-birth, an echo of what was in a new form. In any case, a beneficial birth, no matter the outer trappings it arrives in.

Have a wonderful eclipse!

Go ahead, Libra, live it up! 'Woman Holding Fireworks', India, Artist unknown 19th century {{PD}}

Go ahead, Libra, live it up! ‘Woman Holding Fireworks’, India, Artist unknown 19th century {{PD}}

Do you feel like you’re going to burst, dear Libra? Don’t worry, everybody does, since we’re coming up on a burst-worthy Solar eclipse. In terms of your Solar year, through to your next birthday, this schedules you for about two months of mild tension and confusion followed by a new start that is smart for you, brings positives into the life (financial, love-related, or just through expressions of what you value), and that holds the potential both to offer you some serious healing as well as the opportunity to master some unique skills that you have a genuine talent for. We also see the possibility for significant expansion of your world and just in general for ‘more’–which is the best argument ever for always trying your best and including as many good things in the life as possible–because you don’t want more of the bad or boring, do you? Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

A Little Something, Pre-Eclipse

There's nothing wrong with seeing yourself as a goddess, but you don't need to beat everyone else over the head to convince them; when you do, it suggests you don't really believe you are! 'Circe Offering the Cup to Odysseus' JW Waterhouse 1891 {{PD}}

Now through the 23rd: there’s a lot of passive-aggression going around of a very specific kind: many seem to feel the need to boast, brag, show their worth in whatever currency they value–this is going to last through the eclipse. Those conscious will focus on Love and raising the vibration (whatever that means to them), while the unconscious will give us an earful of how wonderful they are! or how smart, or how enlightened–and a good number of them will do it by couching things in what they see as ‘spiritual’ terms (or ‘important’ ones–again, in the form of their currency and what they value). My recommendation is to let them express unchallenged and without contradicting, because there’s an aggressive thrust behind things–these individuals will be willing to draw their swords in a heartbeat–and they won’t see you, they’ll see an attempt to wound their pride, disparage them, or to take away their goodies. Take the no-stress route and chill–and have a great day! (Sun-Venus at the rough midpoint of Black Moon Lilith-Mars, semi-sextile Ceres)

Get out there and do--you'll find something valuable. By N. C. Wyeth, from the 1911 edition of 'Treasure Island' {{PD}}

Reward, treasure, Love–whatever you want to call it–will be yours this year, dear Libra–but you’ll have to act, to choose, to decide to get it. What you do to earn it will, directly or indirectly, require a Sagittarius-flavored effort: learning or teaching, implementation of a life philosophy or the development of one by which to live, a reaching out to others, efforts to understand and/ or incorporate what’s foreign to you, religious ritual meant to lead to spiritual communion, or something dictated by the subjects ruled by Sag in your natal chart–you’ll know which one resonates for you–and the great thing is this opens up your capacity for instinctual understanding, offering a personal compass guided by your own deep connection to All That Is. But first, choose, decide, act. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

You may feel strangely lonely this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Libra, no matter how much love, praise, or reward surrounds you–and you are slated for a good dose of that–it’s just that you will be grappling mentally and emotionally with issues of power, reach, and territory, and so may need to cultivate that sense of isolation, if only so that you can sort through and make sense of things. The best result of all this could be that you come out of this experience a leader, in one form or another, with a magnified sense of fairness and an enhanced understanding of power expression–and that should lead to some significant healing. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

'The Jockey' Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec {{PD}}

‘The Jockey’ Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec {{PD}}

Power issues between yourself and other authorities in your life are the focus this coming year, through to your next birthday, dear Libra. There will be an often subtle jockeying for territory, influence, and the right to command–but never ever forget that the ultimate say-so is yours. In fact, that may be the toughest part of this year: remembering that no matter how things appear, the final authority (and responsibility) is your own. The biggest challenge may be in recognizing that most of the ‘rights’ and influence others have over you is just an elaborate illusion, one you previously agreed to–and now you must decide whether you want that enmeshment to continue. Positives: you have a good chance at a prosperity boost if you are willing to face issues you’ve been avoiding. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

'Weeping Willow' Claude Monet c1919 {{PD}}

‘Weeping Willow’ Claude Monet c1919 {{PD}}

This may be an exceptionally emotional year for you, through to your next birthday, dear Libra; exploration of darker life matters and those things you’ve tried to ignore will spark some definitive emotional scenes, and these in turn will spark actions guided by instinct, and these will affect material matters and end up re-shaping your world. Make special efforts toward personal control and fine-tune presentations of your own uniqueness or originality, because at this time you’ll only get one shot to make that first impression, and it needs to be as unruffled by tumultuous feelings and matters of the heart as possible. You could see a few ‘firsts’ this year, but don’t stress the rules and parameters you know to be wise–respect them, and if you have to choose between what’s untried and what’s known, pick the one that’s most practical. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

Pedro Alexandrino Borges  'Still life - Grapes and Peaches' {{PD}}

Pedro Alexandrino Borges ‘Still life – Grapes and Peaches’ {{PD}}

This coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, you’ll have the juice, dear Libra, to face those issues you’ve been avoiding and by doing so release a crazy amount of creative energy (or just a large amount of crazy, should you fail to channel it positively!) Don’t worry, instinct will guide you to a great extent, and facing things will also free up your capacity to alter and shape the environment to your liking–and that may be something you haven’t had the strength to do for some time. A couple of caveats: you can be too proud, and so discourage what would otherwise prove to be positive situations, and miscommunications or misunderstandings can be costly–so exchange info with care. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

Emile Friant 'La Discussion politique' before 1932 {{PD}}

Emile Friant ‘La Discussion politique’ before 1932 {{PD}}

Dear Libra, communication and clear thinking, especially in relationships, may be your biggest challenge this year, through to your next birthday–and it may grow into your biggest asset. Though it might be tough going over the next few months, the conditions under which you interact with others and share information will force you to pay excruciatingly close attention, to absorb nuance, and to read implications very precisely–and so hone your communication skills to a degree that might almost appear supernatural to the observer. Once you have sharpened your perceptual abilities, instinct kicks in to aid you, and then you’ll be ready to tackle those issues avoided or ignored–but for now, just know that out of some difficult beginnings, this year could shape a quick mentality and some exceptional skills. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!
