The Sun Passing Through Libra

October 8, 2016

This is a time of looking at all the relationships you have in your life. Not just relationships with other people, but the relationship between the factions you have going on inside you. Deep within your inner world. It is a time of examining the balance between these factions.

The balance between work and leisure time.

The balance between friendship and detachment or avoidance.

The balance between embracing someone and condemning them.

The balance between fear and confidence.

The balance between poverty and abundance.

Between lack of and lots of.

Between loneliness and warm, contented companionship.

Between serving yourself and serving others.

Between pleasing yourself and pleasing others.

Between fostering relationships and burning bridges.

Between being demanding, and undemanding and content.

How much do you give, and how much do you take?

Between when to indulge, and when not to indulge.

Between when to speak, and when to hold your tongue.

Between caring too much about what other people think, and not caring at all.

How true are you to yourself, and how much do you allow your behaviour to be influenced by others?

At a certain point during the Sun’s passage through Libra, the amount of darkness on Earth and light on Earth are equal (12 hours each).

The balance between love and hate, darkness and light.

As a famous Libran by the name of John Lennon (who also had the Moon in Aquarius) once said: Give peace a chance.

Can you see the balance operating between the two examples, and the polarity between them? (for example, Aries is about Self, and Libra is about “the other”, but they are both about relationships, which is the polarity). The oppositions in your chart (if you have any) are like that too.

A client gave me an example recently of Mars in Scorpio opposite Moon in Taurus in her chart. She explained that Mars in Scorpio feels like she is furiously swimming underwater in order to achieve something, and Moon in Taurus feels like calmness, contentment and relaxation, and that abundance is coming to her. Both of these signs are about money/income/assets (amongst other things). Scorpio rules other people’s money, while Taurus rules personal income (and the self-worth needed to obtain it).

So there is the opposition and opposite poles (swimming furiously, and relaxing) and the polarity (money).

Your Nodes (North Node and South Node) are like that also (and everyone has Nodes). They are like a stick which has two different ends, yet those ends are connected.

Which end are you operating from? What does your balance look like there? How much of your life are you living through your South Node, and how much through your North Node?

Are you living ‘comfortably’ (South Node) or do you put yourself out there and challenge yourself? (North Node).

And to end this brief article, we shall end with the words of that famous Libran, John Lennon (who also had the Moon in Aquarius just to add a bit more air): Imagine all the people, living life in peace. You may say, I’m a dreamer (idealist), but I’m just an Air sign with the Moon in Aquarius.  🙂






Saturn in Libra and Creating A Relationship Blueprint

February 22, 2010

The positive thing about Saturn moving through Libra is that relationships of all kinds are being redefined. I personally know of a woman (with no knowledge or awareness of astrology) who is finally setting boundaries with the people in her life that drain her, and will now not allow these people to drain her anymore. Saturn in Libra describes the personal standards we accept in our relationships. To reach a better understanding of what Saturn in Libra means, we must examine people who have this placement in their natal charts. Two women I know with this placement have both chosen inappropriate and unreliable partners in the past, and have ended up being disappointed and hurt after the relationship has inevitably collapsed. I must add that both women concerned were very loyal and dependable, and this is a quality that Saturn in Libra seems to gift the native with. It is just a shame that their partners were not of the same ilk. The phrase ‘once bitten, twice shy’ fits Saturn in Libra because the native with this placement in their natal chart becomes cautious about moving into another relationship once they have experienced a hurtful, disappointing one. Another manifestation of this natal placement is once again best expressed by a phrase; the phrase being ‘better the devil you know than the devil you don’t’. In other words, the Saturn in Libra person stays in an unsatisfactory relationship because he or she fears that the next relationship they choose might be worse. Both of these relationship situations show a need to be very discerning in the choice of partner in the first place. Saturn transiting through Libra for me personally (before it retrograded back into Virgo) was about becoming quite strict with people in my life who I considered to be ‘energy suckers’. Saturn demands from all of us that we are self-supporting, rather than drawing on the time and energy and resources of others. Another manifestation of Saturn passing through Libra will be that certain relationships in ones family will need maintenance or restructuring in some way, largely due to Saturn’s continuing square to Pluto. And with Uranus coming into the planetary mix soon, there may be some endings and/or fresh new beginnings concerning long-standing relationships. I expect that the number of people going to family counsellors or even psychotherapists in order to resolve long-standing relationship issues will rise sharply. People who have Saturn in Libra natally (and also any single people looking for a partner during Saturn’s current transit of Libra) must specify to themselves exactly what they want, require, need and expect in a partner , form a blueprint of their conclusions, and stick to that blueprint like glue. People not in a current relationship may be feeling impulsive now because the relationship they desire seems to be a long time in coming. But instead of impulsively ‘diving in’ to a situation that may seem appealing now, single people at this time especially need to excercise more faith, patience and respect for self and wait a little longer before making a decision. Patience, of course, is Saturn’s forte. So, if you happen to be a member of a dating site while while Saturn transits Libra, and you are sincere in your desire to find a great partner that truly complements you and meets you in all areas, what you need to do is clearly define to yourself exactly what it is that you truly want in that partner, and don’t accept anything less. Make wise old father time (Saturn) proud of you. Happy hunting!
