December 7, 2012

While important others in your life can be erratic or plain unreliable today, dear Aries, this can actually help you to detach yourself from rather intense situations you’ve been experiencing of late. Focus can return to more practical matters in your life, if only temporarily, although early morning, your mind can be very foggy.
 

December 7, 2012

Energy for you today is rather insular and withdrawn in the morning, dear Libra. With the Moon in the sign just behind yours, it’s a natural time for reviewing recent events and recharging your emotional batteries rather than for leaping into something new with a splash. A partner could be confusing or even deceptive. If possible, take extra time for yourself. This afternoon, the Moon enters your sign this afternoon, and then opposes Uranus. Your ruler, Venus, is also challenged by Uranus. The atmosphere is ripe for the unexpected and surprise elements, and you may very well be the catalyst!

Although others are finding you attractive and compelling today, dear Aries, you can be quite temperamental in the morning, especially if you feel that others are fencing you in or restricting you in any way. It may not be easy to stick to plans so try to schedule activities that allow you to go outside of the rules. Later today, you tune in to otherworldly or simply subtle levels, and this can serve to increase your understanding of yourself as well as others. You might help someone or be a source of great comfort or inspiration to a person. Creative and artistic matters are favored today, as is any volunteer work.

 November 23, 2012
The morning is likely to be busy but engaging, dear Libra. However, chaotic it may be, take the time to center yourself so that you can enjoy the warmer energy with you by late morning. Surprises are in the mix when it comes to close relationships. Conversations about, with, or on behalf of family can be intense and revealing. There is an intensity to the day that tends to break through barriers of unfamiliarity. As a result, you can more effectively get closer to people who you might not yet know very well.

November 15, 2012
Your mood lifts somewhat today, dear Aries. Nevertheless, this week can involve some soul-searching, facing up to truths about the past, and possibly a hard look at financial or intimacy matters. You’ll need to muster up a lot of patience, as you can be experiencing some delays and restrictions now. Even so, these are not setbacks. Instead, you are realigning yourself and discovering what it is you truly want, and what it is that brings you the most joy. You may not be able to move forward as quickly as you’d like, but if you do so step by step, then you’re more likely to do it successfully.

November 15, 2012
You can struggle with a decision today, dear Libra, that involves finances and possibly partnership. Whether to stick with tried and true, or traditional, methods, or to stick your neck out and innovate or take a risk can be the underlying question. This energy can play out on a more personal level, wherein you have a strong need to defend your values and practices, and a significant other in your life is challenging you to break the rules. There is an unlikely to be an immediate solution in sight, but your goal now should be to find a compromise or balance. Try not to choose one or the other. Instead, make a few adjustments that allow you to entertain both possibilities.

mercury retrograde

November 5th: Emotionally, you can transition from self-protective to quite generous with your feelings and affections today, dear Aries. As the day progresses, watch for fuzzy thinking with Mercury coming to a station and turning retrograde tomorrow. Dealing with facts and figures is best done in the morning. Some tensions can be felt in close relationships and with finances this evening. Avoid a mad rush to set things straight. Pace yourself.

November 5th: Focus on the meaning behind the words today, dear Libra, as you are more inclined to pick up subtle cues correctly than you are when using your brain to analyze what others say and do. Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow, and signals can easily get crossed today. While communication and transportation may be a little chaotic today and tomorrow, if you plan ahead by allowing yourself a little more time to get from point A to B, you’re generally in a good frame of mind to weather the storm.

November 6th: Mercury is retrograde, today until November 26th, and while you are not immune to these hiccups, you’ve got some smooth energy with you now that helps you to thrive anyhow. Communications that we tend to take for granted seem to malfunction in minor, but nevertheless irritating, ways with Mercury’s change in direction. You, however, seem less affected than most when it comes to social interactions. Your trick is your ability to rise above superficial matters and to see into the heart of the person behind the fumbled words. Keep things simple and clear, however, just in case others are not being quite as gracious as you are.

Creativity: Good; Relationship: Fair; Business: Fair

November 6th: Mercury turns retrograde today, and it will be important to tread lightly when it comes to interactions with others, dear Aries. Misunderstandings are all too likely right now. However, you stand to gain tremendous insight by observing and listening today. While you are just as prone as others to making mistakes with cold, hard facts right now, your perceptions are nevertheless keen when it comes to picking up on other non-verbal vibrations. Extra care should be taken in the next few weeks regarding travel or education plans, and with any financial initiatives that involve shared resources. Today, watch for some exaggeration in your love life. Avoid stirring up drama and instead find the true source of your restlessness.

Post with 1 note

Your thoughts are lifted above mundane, ordinary concerns now with Mercury in your solar ninth house until November 13th, dear Aries. The inclination towards philosophizing, engaging in debates, and seeking out higher knowledge is strong now. You are more concerned with the purpose of what you do than the mechanics of your life. You might find something you read or learn inspires you to reach for more from life. Although you are likely to express yourself well, there can be times when you can come across as snobby with your opinions if you are not careful.

Creativity: Good; Relationship: Good; Business: Good

You’re in a Mercury cycle that spans until November 13th and that stimulates your desire for mental exercise. It’s excellent for learning and academics, dear Libra, although you are so very interested in the world around you that it can be hard, at times, to focus on any one thing. Keep a few projects going so that you can move between them and so that you experience the variety you crave. Decisions are better handled right away during this cycle. You are required to think on your feet, and you are more able to do so now.

October 25th:

There may be a disappointment to deal with in the morning, dear Aries. Nevertheless, you are likely to feel clearer about previously difficult or confusing matters, and this is an empowering feeling. As the day moves forward, it’s an excellent time for you to think through plans. It’s also a good time to talk something through with someone. Communication with co-workers or those in authority can be beneficial. Nevertheless, you are inclined to want to hide yourself away a little today with the Moon in Pisces, the sign just behind yours. It’s a strong time for closing an emotional matter. Creativity: Good; Relationship: Excellent; Business: Good

This is a better time to tend to practical matters, dear Libra. You are more equipped right now to solve problems. You are seeing flaws clearly, but instead of letting them bother you, you are more likely to attempt to fixe them. These days, it’s especially important for you to tend to your bills and financial responsibilities quite diligently, and this is one of the better days for doing so. It’s a strong day for learning as well. Creativity: Fair; Relationship: Good; Business: Good

The Sun enters your intimacy sector today and will stay there until November 21st, dear Aries. During this cycle, you are tuned in to more of the signals around you, and you are inclined to read between the lines. You may be craving more intensity and intimacy in your life, and while this is fine, do be careful not to push others to their limits in an effort to stir up some controversy or drama. You are more inclined to keep your personal plans to yourself now. Research as well as financial analysis and planning are activities that can thrive during this cycle. Creativity: Good; Relationship: Good; Business: Good

A month-long cycle begins today in which you find the courage and gumption from within yourself to take charge of your life when it comes to security, dear Libra.

Today, a positive attitude wins respect from others.

October 15, 2012

You are expressing great intensity today, dear Aries, and your insistence on breaking through the surface of matters and digging deeper can bring you to important new discoveries. This attitude can also bring a new relationship into your life, as you possess more courage than usual to break down walls between you and others.

Solving problems, particularly of the intellectual or mechanical variety, is a cinch today. You have a wonderful way of inspiring, charming, and educating others all at once now. Social matters are strong now. You are dishing out great advice now.

if/when

September 24, 2012Small but nevertheless frustrating delays are more likely to occur today. Past errors can crop up, or you might feel vaguely guilty about a responsibility you haven’t fulfilled. Instead of stressing yourself out, take advantage of the time you have now to reevaluate what you are doing. You could find an error or an inconsistency that needs correcting. Take the time to right a wrong, or to forgive yourself for something you can’t change. Even if it’s a small effort, it’s somehow empowering.
 

 Creativity: Fair ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Good

September 25, 2012You are especially resistant to anyone attempting to pressure, manipulate, or push their authority on you this morning, dear Aries. You may be in the position to confront someone who’s been frustrating you, and while you cannot entirely ignore it, you might take a deep breath and ask yourself if it would be worth the extra energy to engage yourself in an all-out confrontation. Taking the high road is definitely favored now. Your social life begins to pick up pace later today. Today’s events tend to bring to the surface your need to be part of a group or team. You’re not in this alone! Reach out to others, especially those who are more likely to be considered friends, acquaintances, or associates, as those very close to you may not be as available or forthcoming today.
 

 Creativity: Fair ~ Love: Fair ~ Business: Good

September 24, 2012There can be some feelings of being taken advantage of today, or undervalued for your talents and efforts, dear Libra. Your imagination can run into tricky territory. The tendency to fill in the blanks with negative scenarios can be strong now and should be avoided as best as you can. Be content with the idea that you may not know the whole story just yet. As the day progresses, you are less inclined to nurse your wounds, and more inclined to take advantage of the moment.
 

 Creativity: Good ~ Love: Fair ~ Business: Good

September 25, 2012A disagreement over how money is spent may be part of the picture today, dear Libra. Others can seem a little controlling now. Restlessness and impatience can ruin what could be a very creative, spontaneous day if you are not careful. You want to push your way through your daily routine so that you can get to more interesting things, but the people around you may not seem to be moving quickly enough! Tune out distractions so that you can focus on one thing at a time. Avoid provoking others, even subtly, with an impatient manner.

things

September 10, 2012

Illumination can come today, dear Libra, when you pay attention to details on a private or past matter. The Sun and Mercury align in your soul sector, and this can prompt you to see something you’ve failed to see before, or a conversation can bring up new information that allows you to come to a more definite conclusion. You’ll be more actively putting the past behind you after the New Moon on the 15th, but information that surfaces now can begin to point you in the right direction. The Moon’s presence in your reputation sector today can make you a little more noticeable and accountable than usual.

September 9, 2012This morning is strong for tending to responsibilities, writing, and communication, dear Aries, and in particular, those things that require concentration, focus, and a good eye for details. Take care of business, particularly those things that require connecting to others. Close a deal. This afternoon, you’re much less likely to want to work and connect with others outside your familiar circle. The rest of the day is good for enjoying family and nesting activities.

August 28, 2012

Morning tensions ease as you feel less pressured to produce, dear Aries. By afternoon, you’re ready to kick back a little. It’s a time for socializing and spending time with people who don’t pressure you. Typically you like standing out from the crowd, but today, you’re quite content to not necessarily blend in, but to interact as equals. Tomorrow brings good energy for work, so you might end the day prioritizing what you’d like to, or need to, work on tomorrow.

August 28, 2012

Creating something is a satisfying way of expressing who you are, and with the Moon stimulating the area of your chart that rules your creations from midday forward, dear Libra, you’ll understand this intuitively. It’s a time for honoring your “inner child”, and your ease in expressing this part of you assures you some positive feedback. Romantic feelings can also be stirred now, more than usual.

August 21, 2012The Moon is in your sign today, dear Libra, pulling up your emotions and attachments to the surface, and aligning with Saturn, which has been transiting your sign since late 2009. You are in the last six weeks or so of this Saturn transit that has forced you to adjust your expectations and to face some of the less flattering elements of yourself. Very little has been handed to you during this time - most of the accomplishments you’ve made have been well-earned. This is a time for processing the lessons you’ve learned before going forward with a lighter load and less personal pressure.
 

 Creativity: Good ~ Love: Fair ~ Business: Good

August 22, 2012The Sun moves into your reflection sector today, dear Libra, where it will stay until September 22nd. This signals extra need for rest, privacy, time alone, and reflection on the events of the last year. This yearly cycle precedes the Sun’s transit through your sign (which will begin on September 22nd) and generally involves letting go of those things that no longer serve you well. This can be attitudes, goals, circumstances, feelings, and sometimes even people or relationships. However you do it, you will want to take advantage of the next step, when all eyes are on you and life throws you more opportunities, so prepare, reflect, and put the past in the past. Today, there can be a lively exchange of ideas that inspires you.

New Moon

The New Moon today stimulates your romantic and creative impulses, dear Aries, and pushes you towards a new beginning of sorts in these areas of life. Over the coming weeks, some of you will have a fresh start in a romance, but there will also be a strong focus on the long term and “getting it right” this time around. Concentrate on new ways to enhance your romantic life, creative endeavors and hobbies, and relationship with children, while being especially mindful of those things that you know from experience haven’t worked to your benefit. This is a time for starting new, but with improved expectations - more realistic ones.
 Creativity: Good ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Good

The New Moon today brings your social life into high focus, dear Libra. Now and in the coming weeks, you’re likely to gain new ideals and knowledge through friends and associates. Your compassion towards others is highlighted, and you’re sure to discover that you’re viewing people in an all new light. You may be in the position to help out others, and some of you will make a new friend, or reconnect with an old pal, during this period. You are in a wonderful position to learn from past mistakes and adjust your expectations accordingly.

It’s not the time to stubbornly hold on to things “as they were.” Rather, it’s time to recognize the need to make changes, but it’s also important to have a strong sense of what you can and cannot do. It’s not about lowering your expectations, but it is about bringing more realism into the picture. A significant person in your life can grate on your nerves today, however, perhaps due to impatience, brusqueness, or aggressiveness. You may need to adjust your schedule in order to better accommodate them, but take the necessary time you need to tend to your own needs as well.

August 10, 2012There can be a nice feeling of freshness to the day, dear Aries, and while communication troubles are not quite cleared (they’re getting there), most people are cooperating right now. You may be perfectly content to relax and breathe in this energy rather than forging ahead and forgetting to “stop and smell the roses” for much of the day. This is perfectly appropriate with the Moon in your solar second house until late afternoon, if, of course, you can manage it. Earthy, sensual activities that remind you how good it is to simply be alive will be most emotionally rewarding now. Life becomes a little more scattered this evening.

August 10, 2012

You tend to be attracted to things that require deeper or more focused thought today, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to look for mysteries to solve. As the day progresses, try to avoid tasks that require a lot of focus or repetition, as your emotions are tuning into something bigger and you begin to crave experiences that truly make you feel alive and that further your spiritual growth and understanding.
