Libra: The Scales
Libra: The Scales
Friday, April 12, 2013
Hello, Libra! I hope this writing finds you well and in good health. You’ve got a lot on your mind and a lot to think about these days. You might encounter some resistance from someone close to you or it could be the other way around that you are being resistant to the wishes of someone close to you. Either way you’re going to need to be flexible at this time and a little more than patient. You may even have to bite your tongue here and there to keep the peace and keep things moving forward. Let’s look at the planetary influences and how they are affecting you and those around you. It’s more than likely that you’re in negotiations for some present goal that involves a close family member like your spouse or perhaps a business partner that you are very familiar with. This occurs to me because Venus, your ruler, is in your seventh house which is your house of marriage, significant others including partners romantically or in a business sense. You still have a few days to go with this influence, until about April 14th. There is the element of surprise with Uranus which means you need to watch for things to go one way when you expect another. Your significant other may suddenly decide to change plans mid-mango and that doesn’t always sit well with you patient though you are. As accommodating as you are things like this are going to ruffle your feathers when you are feeling a little more than frazzled by the weight of it all. (more…)

There is good news on the way, Libra. With the current Mercury Retrograde there comes the usual mix-ups in communications, paperwork, faxes, negotiations, email, and the like, including verbal communications. You’ll be okay but one brief admonition I’d like to offer is to stay clear of moderating or otherwise involving yourself or being pulled into anyone else’s drama or mess. You’ve enough to deal with and this is one of those times that your famous skills in moderating problems for others is better reserved for yourself. Namaste!
The Grand Trine present in the Heavens at this time is going to help you enormously. If you are looking for venture capital, a loan, other funding or reprieve, you are likely to get it. If you’ve been embroiled in an ongoing divorce that seems to never settle due to an inability to get the other party to agree on asset and debt division, you’re in luck as the presiding powers that be are likely to take your side in your case and order accordingly. The sector of your chart that is lit indicates to me that you are dealing with other people’s money, that is, money that is not your own, like your savings account or earning. These types of monies are not earned but rather are handled in a one-time only way, as in when a judge orders something like a divorce be settled and assets and debts divided equally. This Grand Trine is going to help you get the issue settled, if not already, very soon, whatever it is. If you’re applying for a loan you’ll likely get your yes soon. The Full Moon March 8th should have given you plenty of indication on what the matter was though you already should know what this matter is about. The planets that form this Grand Trine are your twelfth house of quiet and confidential matters and dealings, fourth house of home, and eighth house of other people’s money so you get the idea. You are poised to fare better than you think, dear Libra! The main thing I see from my vantage point — and not seeing your personal chart because I don’t know where or when you were born — is other people’s money. It all seems to be linked to something of a real estate matter, property division, the sale of a home for any reason including divorce, etc., and again that Full Moon on the 8th should have indicated what is going to happen next. If your house is upside down or otherwise in some kind of entanglement, the first week of March is where you’d have been working to get this situation remedied or otherwise handled. There are options out there and if you’ve found none, this is the time to keep researching and if you’ve not settled anything, please do try to wait until mid to late April, if at all possible, to finalize the deals. Jupiter and Venus will really help you on this and any housing situation you are dealing with. Family may be of assistance in some way considering the Full Moon of the 8th speaks about a woman. Again, the Full Moon of the 8th was in your twelfth house so things are still in a quiet and somewhat confidential stage and that’s fine because you don’t want to, if you’ve not finalized things already, do anything about this now, at least not if at all possible. Just don’t go talking to anyone about these talks to help keep the energy quiet and to your advantage. There could be delays mid month due to the Mercury Retrograde and Mars still Retrograde until April 13th (Mercury Retrograde until April 4th) so please go with the flow as much as possible and do not add any pressure to settle or finalize at all. You are not at fault in this and it is certainly the next person causing the trouble. Let them fall into a pot of hot water but do NOT let them take you with them. Just be very quiet at this time.
Things are not in your control and have something to do with a partner, marriage, divorce, something along those lines, and you could feel frustrated along the way because that’s exactly where Mercury is right now so just know it’s not you, it’s the next person! Just keep your chin up, go with the flow, do not cause problems even if you are frustrated and instead consult with a close friend or adviser so you can vent without breaching your own confidentiality. Just hold things up, cause some delays where possible and where you will not be blamed — be creative! — and try to wait things out until NO SOONER than April 21st if at all humanly or otherwise possible! Do not agree to anything at this time, I’m very serious about this and YOU will tell me how this worked for you later, I guarantee it! It will benefit you, I swear by this, in a financial way and you will be able to at least minimize any potential losses and perhaps GAIN through delays! Hear me on this!
Jupiter brings luck to you — so does Venus — Uranus brings surprises, all courtesy the Grand Trine so USE these delays to your advantage. You will find that your adversary, if there is one — which is likely — will show their nastier side around March 22nd. You will have four FOUR planets in the same house all begging for their time to either help you or cause you grief. They may even go after you personally and if someone’s talking to you like I mentioned last week, wipe from front to back but keep your mouth shut as much as possible to take energy away or at least deflect their attacks on your reputation. Again, people who know and love you already do and on one can hurt you — just use your instincts. This person is prone to bad behavior and is volatile at best. This person comes across to me like a complete NUT so be careful and protect yourself as usual and even more than usual. You may already know this person well enough to predict what he or she (likely a she!) will try to do but luck is on your side and I suspect your good karma will help you, too.
Contemplate: Something of great importance is on your mind and if you’ve not been able to settle or at least beat this dead horse down, it will son be more or less settled. An adversary will try to bother the hell out of you and you must keep quiet about your plans or your next move. Do yourself a favor and do NOT let this person get under your skin — you’ve MUCH too much good coming to you to waste your time on people who mean nothing at all and who are nothing but hot airbags waiting to pop, uselessly, in your face. Read what I wrote twice and then read it again. GOOD THINGS ARE COMING. Right now, sign and agree to NOTHING until at least, and best, April 21st. God bless you!
For the week of Monday, March 5, 2012
That the next person says, dear Libra, should be of no consequence to you. So why are you worried about what anyone else thinks of you? It should not yet you are currently over-thinking what the next person or persons think of you. When was the last time someone in this circle helped you, anyway? Exactly. Perhaps you’re embroiled in some little, trivial drama that is quite out of proportion now. Perhaps someone behind the scenes — and behind your back — isn’t saying the most kind things about you. How you know this doesn’t matter but what you do with this information, does. You can’t please everyone, Libra, and you can’t win everyone over with your words. Once people form an opinion of someone, they have. They change their mind if they want to and they can do that by talking to you — and still have the same opinion. When someone thinks ill 0f another they just do — to each his own should be your mantra these days. What you need to question yourself is why you care at all. So, why do you care, dear Libra, what someone else thinks of you? Of course, if this is the opinion of a superior at work, a co-worker, or worse — a family member or partner, the situation is usually more complex. But even so, you cannot change the other person’s mind just as much as you can’t reach into their brain and pull out the offensive opinion. My advice to you is if you are harming none, do as you wish. If you are defending yourself too much, stop. There’s nothing to worry about until there is something to worry about and if it’s just words, consider them as I do: what the next person is saying, if it’s not kind, is toilet paper so wipe from front to back and flush that crap down the toilet and forget about it. I know that’s a little rude but I’m Cuban: non est mea culpa!
Contemplate: Forget about what another thinks or says about you unless it affects you or your family, your work or your livelihood directly. People who know you, do, and people who don’t even get you to begin with, don’t. They don’t matter — only you do. God bless and steer clear of those who would speak ill and walk the other way — forget their names.
For the week of Monday, February 6, 2012
Libra, you are amid balance again and working to bring balance to obligations and responsibility while looking forward to the future. This is a good thing but it should not be taken lightly. Not everyone’s going to understand what you are doing but you do and that’s what matters. Others may think your head is in the clouds (again), dreaming, wishing, living in fantasy, when the opposite is actually true this time! While you are currently balancing real life and real responsibility and goals, be sure to communicate with your loved ones and those concerned that you are handling things appropriately and perhaps let them in on some of the ideas you have for the future. In this way, they will not think you are day dreaming but rather they will see you are actually handling your affairs better than usual and planning for the future — they can support you that way and worry a little less. Life is offering you a lot of surprises and unexpected opportunities with potential so please be sure to analyze each before investing too much time and energy. You are becoming more quickly able to respond to changes while also balancing contemplation with reaction time. You are falling in line with yourself and a better purpose for you on many levels including work a day affairs, work, job, job function, income, and income earning potential, and this also makes for better relationships via self sufficiency and ability to provide for yourself and others. The changes you are making to yourself and in your life are quite drastic but they are for your own good and for the benefit of others. Again, some may not understand what you are doing and it’s okay to let them in on your ideas for goals and your planning. You may wish to let them know that these changes in your life also include changes in the way you interact with others socially and on the relationship level. You want better and best for yourself and want nothing to stand in your way or hinder your desires. This is a time when you are still on the cusp of the energy in areas of your chart now lit up that include childhood, innocence, good things, creative type work and ideas, and romantic effort. Be sure to balance, Libra, balance, and don’t go too far one way or another — be responsible about the people in your life at present. Just try to continue to be fair and balanced in your dealings and if you have to end one situation, relationship, friendship, etc., be sure to explain why you need to do what you need to do — you don’t have to include difficult details like, “You’re just not good for me anymore” or, “You’re a hindrance, a drag”, if you know what I mean, but it’s okay to say, “I just have some different ideas about what I want and need in my life than I did some time ago — I’m changing my life, that’s all.” No need to explain too much to people who won’t likely appreciate the sense of cast off. You’re on a journey that not all will understand and it can be even quite a drastic shift for you, too. You may feel off balance at times and that’s okay, too, because there is balancing happening even amid the imbalance, as it were. You are being guided by angels of other realms, if you will, that want to help you and will try to make you as comfortable with your own desire to change as they can so do allow them into your live. Angels can be people here on this plane, too, so don’t forget to say thank you in the process for whatever help or encouragement they provide. Doubt is natural and distrust is not what you want to encourage. Just keep your mind as clear as possible and learn to better discern people, situations, etc., and judge accordingly. You are coming to a place within yourself where you know what you need to do even if the future picture is a bit fuzzy: that’s living in the present with an eye on the future. This same influence and culmination in a relationship due to tomorrow’s full moon may be the end of a relationship or situation of close partnership or the beginning of a new one, or, the renewal of an existing partnership. There is clarity in culmination to whatever end, dear Libra, don’t forget it and don’t doubt it for a moment. Go with it.
Contemplate: Seasons come and go and changes happen or they are blocked. Continue to allow the change in your life, be the change, allow the change, let the change happen but not without your own volition. Explain yourself where necessary and not much more than that. Continue balancing.

Changes come, Libra, but not when we sit and do nothing to change anything at all. You’ve been working on making some serious changes and sometimes you feel you’ve nothing to show for it because you want to see changes working for you now. But Libra, pay attention! You’ve been doing the right thing even though it’s cost you some sleep and even some friendly (or previously thought) support. What does it matter, anyway? You’re a good person and you know why you’ve been working so hard on yourself and want you want and need in life. So why bother pleasing everyone else if you are unhappy in the process? That’s right, Libra, read that again: why bother pleasing everyone else if you are unhappy in the process? YOU are the one that has to be happy with yourself before you can flash that beautiful smile and be genuine about it. People can detect a fake smile a mile away and now that your so-called friends are not in line with you, I bet you question their smiles, past and present.
Not everyone is happy when they see someone doing something they wish they could do, Libra. No matter why others do not support you at this time is…no matter. I feel confident in writing that I believe you have done the work, thought things through, even agonized over your own changes and that’s because I’ve been watching the evolution of particular signs that are now on a higher spiritual level and that’s YOU.
Think of this: in a perfect world, everyone’s happy. In the real world, not everyone is happy but only because they don’t want to make the changes — and HARD ones — that you have been making. So don’t worry about what the next person thinks of you even if they tell it to your face and say words like, “I think you’re wrong…” or “You’re making a mistake.” Who’s freaking life is this, anyway? It’s yours, isn’t it? So long as you act with integrity and responsibility for your own good and unbeknownst to them, the good of others, you have nothing to worry about other than to make sure your smile is clean, pretty, and coming from a place of real happiness and only you know what that means for YOU.
Libra, you precious person, you feel you’ve made a lot of mistakes in your life but you are also, GOOD FOR YOU, realizing that you didn’t mean to make them! You have learned quite a lot about yourself and you realize that you are actually working the new knowledge about yourself into your LIFE: that’s integration! That’s SYNERGY with yourself and your LIFE! I am happy to see these changes in you, Libra! Not all Libra natives are able to see what you do now. Your rising sign would help me identify more for you but we are working with what we have. If you are a Libra with Scorpio rising, for example, the changes have come from deep within and these changes have been even painful to you. No matter, we will not dwell on this.
Relationship issues have been very hard for you and some realizations have been painful — but YOU know that if you do nothing to change the status quo nothing will change for you, either. This is a spiritual time now and you are urged to make these changes, keep making them, and align yourself with the Higher Power that you recognize. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. There is no gray area there. You are at the beginning of a very long and important change in your life so please…keep changing and keep aligning yourself with spirit, the good, and the good you seek and want so much will literally fall into your hands. You will see more evidence of this in weeks to come including you may see manifestation of the spirit and the unseen world right before your lovely eyes. I know you’ve had your moments of doubt, I know you have wavered in some level of fear of the future. If you’ve done the work you will see the real evidence of your progress. In relationships that are longstanding or even present, you can start over. You can correct any past mistakes that are, after all, just a learning curve. Feel that fresh breeze? Your new LIFE is calling you, Libra: please step into the light and out of the shadows in full confidence that you are a good person! Congratulations, Libra! It is a pleasure writing what I hope to you is a confirmation that you are spiritually protected now.
Contemplate: If you take strength from the changes you are making your transition will continue to be phenomenal!

Sometimes things don’t work out for us, Libra, and we are to let go of what is going, gone, and into the past. The trick is recognizing which situations, alliances, partnerships, and even frames of mind need to be released without hesitation or regret. It is said some people are with us for a time and a season; it is also said that nothing lasts forever and that includes the comfortable status quo. The trajectory for the eclipse of December 10th tied to today means it is, indeed, to let go of even illusions. The hard thing for you to do, Libra, is to rely on the reality of any situation where it would benefit you, opening your life to new experiences, because you can be so mired in indecision. What if I tell you that at this time you have no say so in the matter? What needs to change isn’t necessarily you this time just like the seasons change of their own volition with no assistance from us. When you stop and think about how many seasons we have in our lives you can see how life is cyclical and this is just another go round on the Wheel of Fortune a la Tarot.
You know that what goes up must come down and that life waits for no one. While we sometimes cling for dear life even if we blind ourselves to reality, is that really living or is that just a desperate attempt to buy more time to change the present? Don’t try to change the present: live in it. Nothing in life is guaranteed, Libra, tomorrow is not guaranteed, and this very day is not guaranteed: many times in history people have had it all, lost it all, and wasted their time pining past. Take this time now to see the preset moment as clearly as possible — and take off the rose colored glasses! — and believe that things will work out so long as you are not engaging in wishful thinking.
Contemplate: Things don’t always go according to plan but there is always another plan to go to.

Now you see it, now you don’t. That’s no fun, eh, Libra? But sometimes we are the ones that have to get rid of something — or someone — in order for the new to come in. At this time, you find yourself becoming a new you: the person you want to be. And you also feel there is something you need to regain control of in order to accomplish this and that makes others mighty uncomfortable. What others see is not that you’re doing something wrong, it’s that they see you doing something right — for once — and this can be both intimidating and irritating to others. You’ve taken the back seat long enough, sweet and patient Libra, and now is the time to end situations that are no good for you, even if it means it’s hard for you to do. What’s harder: staying in a job or relationship that frustrates you every day or ending it once and for all, taking control of your life, and gaining some self respect in the process? That’s right: it’s harder to deal with being you, every day, if being that old you means constantly taking some form of abuse? Now, what I want you to do, Libra, is this week make a point to go ahead and do what needs to be done even if it makes you uncomfortable. Chances are, what needs to take place has become like a nasty pimple that’s ready to blow and only needs one…tiny…SQUEEZE to end it all. Don’t go crazy and rage about: that’s not going to be pretty and could cause you undue criticism (not that you’ve not had ENOUGH criticism already). What I mean is right the wrongs as you see them, end the situations that are nothing more than inevitable outcomes, anyway, and move FORWARD: with or without people who don’t support you, anyway. If a tree falls in the woods, does anyone hear it fall? Well, who cares about that. YOU go chop that tree down and get it over with no matter who hears it or turns a deaf ear: at least you’ll say what needs to be said!
Contemplate: Cut out the dead wood, clear those useless weeds, and plant something NEW.
Monday, January 9, 2012
What do you dare dream, Libra? You have something on your mind and in your heart that you’ve been wishing on a star for. You’ve been working for this. You’ve been putting every fiber of your being into this. You’ve been talking the talk. You’ve been walking the walk. You’ve been doing the best you can for so long now. So why it is, sweet Libra, that now is when you doubt yourself most? Why is it now that any little bump in the road sends you crying and falling into the pit of despair? Nothing has changed in your course, you are on the same trajectory and though you know you set this in motion and though you are responsible for every push forward you are now acting as if you’re the Little Engine that Could NOT. There is not much further to go and we all know that the last leg of any race seems the longest. Have you ever heard a marathon runner say, after winning, “I didn’t think I could make it — didn’t think I could go one step further. I have no clue how I got here.” NEVER! What does any marathon winner say? “I KNEW I COULD DO IT. I KNEW I ONLY HAD A LITTLE MORE TO GO. I WAS GOING TO WIN IF IT KILLED ME.” Now, do you see where I’m going with this? If you know that you’ve done all your homework, done the right thing, that you’ve done your best this whole time, all that’s happening to you now is that you’re a little tired! That’s all! But if you keep crying like that and carrying on, how will you SEE the finish line? It’s RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. But you are going to trip over your own feet and miss your mark if you don’t keep your chin up and see where you’re going! The full moon in Cancer is just tugging at you a bit so consider it just a little funk and nothing to worry about. There are angels helping you, your loved ones in Heaven cheering you on so don’t let them down. There is a lot happening that you aren’t privy to, that’s being hidden from you for some reason. But just know that when it’s time you’ll understand it all and you’ll see how all things worked in your favor! So, c’mon, Libra dear, chin up! I want to see you smiling and screaming when you get to that finish line because your dreams are going to come TRUE.
Contemplate: FINISH LINE AHEAD — VICTORY
