It’s Luna, with your Sun in Libra forecast.
Recently, we experienced a rare moment of celestial balance during the Autumnal Equinox.
Day and night occurred for an equal length of time, and graced us with a subtle sense of equilibrium within the larger cosmos.
Balance will be a major theme for the next month while the Sun is in Libra. Expect your relationships to be challenged, as communication in both your personal and professional life might be charged and intense for the next week.
I have every faith that with a little astrological insight, you will be able to navigate the upcoming days with ease and grace. So let’s take a deeper look at what’s happening in the stars, and find out what you need to know!
Curating Your Life
The Sun has entered airy, harmonious Libra, leaving behind it’s stay in detail oriented Virgo. Libras are known for their social charm, love of peace, and artistic talent. They take great pleasure in beauty, fairness and justice. On the downside, they can sometimes ignore their inner knowing in an effort to avoid conflict or uncomfortable situations. Libra’s shadow manifests as an inability to reconcile conflicting points of view, which causes mood swings and mental instability. Symbolized by the scales, Libra is pained by injustice and loves to restore fairness and harmony in the world.
Perhaps Libra’s most important lesson is to learn not to sacrifice inner peace for superficial harmony with others. No matter what your sun sign is, Libra’s presence is somewhere in your chart. So during this next month, stay on the lookout for any tendency you may have to ignore unpleasant truths in an attempt to avoid conflict.
At it’s best, Libra teaches you to curate your life by choosing the most harmonious (for you) people and environments to create synergy with. It’s not possible to get along with every person you meet, so it’s important to pay attention to who promotes the most happiness and enjoyment in your life, and who falls short. Libra loves to bring resonant groups of people together to socialize and enjoy good vibes. This is part of Libra’s artistry. This month, start to look at how you can enhance your social and romantic relationships by thoughtfully bringing together your favorite people and activities.
While there will be ample opportunities for pleasure over the coming days, also pay attention to any suppressed emotions that might be bubbling up to the surface.
Bringing Power Into Balance
Recently, Mercury, the planet of mind and communication, entered a challenging aspect to Pluto, planetoid of instinct and soul. This astrological combination can bring hidden tensions around power dynamics to the surface, and may even cause a heated dispute. If someone in your life has abused their position of authority or privilege, Mercury in Libra’s sense of justice and fairness will compel you to speak up and do something about it. Otherwise, you may find yourself stewing in your own frustrations until you can find a way to vocalize your feelings.
Being able to speak your mind can’t happen unless you feel safe enough to be honest. If the person you’re dealing with has a hot temper or holds a lot of power over your life, it may feel like you’re better off just avoiding the issue. However, with this transit, avoidance won’t be so easy. If you’ve kept your true feelings locked inside, you might just find yourself exploding and finally expressing everything you’ve held back.
It’s possible, however, to avoid a big fallout by striking a balance between being direct and being agreeable. Mercury square Pluto challenges you to voice your desires and deep instinctual needs in a way that doesn’t overpower or dominate the person you’re communicating with.
Ideally, give yourself and those around you a wide berth for the next few days. Communication may come across more forcefully than intended. Try not to take anything that comes up personally. Instead, write down your thoughts and feelings, and if you can, wait until the beginning of October to address any sensitive topics.
This transit can help you reconcile your soul’s urges and non-negotiable needs with how you relate to others. Your instincts and desires are sacred. They hold the key to both your protection and your personal fulfillment. Use this time to discover how to express these desires more skillfully, and create deeper balance within your relationships.
Take The Weight Off Your Shoulders
Have you found yourself sacrificing your own happiness and peace in an effort to bring harmony to a situation? If so, while the Sun is in Libra, you can take steps to unlearn this tendency.
Oftentimes, spiritual teachings tell you to be kind to others, but fail to remind you to also be kind to yourself. That’s why I’ve come up with the Inverted Golden Rule:
Treat yourself the way you want other people to treat you.
If you want people to be kind and loving to you, be kind and loving to yourself. If you don’t want to be used or mistreated, don’t make yourself so available to others. Remember, you’re the one who teaches other people how to treat you. Set a good example, and you will receive the love, respect, and care you dream about.
An essential element to experiencing true, Libran harmony is to include your own needs and desires when considering everyone else’s. This month, you have a real opportunity to take the weight you’ve been carrying for other people off your shoulders and bring greater balance into your relationships. Look for the middle ground between keeping the peace, and being brutally honest. Sometimes being truthful will upset those around you no matter what. If that’s the case for you, don’t be afraid to rock the boat. Upsets can be productive, and ultimately create deeper, more stable harmony in your life and relationships.
