#Libra is a Cardinal air sign. Cardinal signs like to initiate. Air signs rule the mental body.
We have just past an equinox heralding the move into a new season, regardless of which hemisphere you call home.
As Libra is ruled by #Venus, how we relate may be on our minds. Relating, in Libra, is a way for us to get to better know ourselves, through our relationships.
Jupiter will be spending the next year or so in Libra and is conjunct this new moon, so some optimism and excitement will fuel the desire to get out and learn about others.
Mars moved into Capricorn this week. The Mars square to the new Moon and the Sun in Libra calls us actually relate, rather than just thinking about and talking about relating.
The square reminds us that relationships start with the most personal one - the connection we have with ourselves and our higher selves.
From our center, we make our way into the world to meet with others and see reflected back us what we do and don't want in our relationships with others and with ourselves.
Pluto has resumed forward motion in Capricorn after being retrograde since April.
We will begin to be drawn into the world, lead by desire for personal authority and the desire to forge relationships that work well for us, that empower each of us to have the best union with our own, inner authority.
The time spent with Sun in Virgo allowed for mental, emotional and physical housecleaning that prepares us to move above the horizon, into the seventh sign, Libra. Libra is the first of the relationship signs. The first five signs are related to the building of the ego. They are personal. Virgo prepares us to go into the world after a time of self reflection. In Libra we have opened the door back into the world – experiencing, interacting, reflecting, assimilating, evolving.
Apologies to those that don't watch #GameofThrones, but we are at that moment when a heroine states, “a girl is Arya Stark and I am going home.”
We state that which we are, as best we can know it for today, and we stand strong in that. We forge on out into the big existence. Sometimes shared, sometimes in solitude. Always on the way Home.
