After a suffocating period, in which you felt you were drowning, December releases you. You rise up by not pandering to anyone’s opinion but your own. November 29 brings a breakthrough in communications which has you flying. Success! Confidence becomes your raison d’etre. And by December 7 with Venus in the fun house you’re finally able to leave the house and celebrate. After this, there’s no stopping you. The more you get off your chest, the more straight talk you allow, the better you feel.
You take responsibility, dear Libra, for wisdom, what you learned, and acknowledge how you came by it. To accept who you are. You begin, after years and years, to tell it like it is.
Tell it how you see it. Your mantra for December.
You’re creating your own foundation and you will take it with you wherever you go. Rather like a turtle with its shell. You are creating your greatest success in the world yet and you must create a protection for it – to go out into the world – like protecting it with your body.
How is your body doing nowadays? It does need to be your personal project now. Particularly with the tantrums going on all around you – people are acting crazy. You need to cultivate health, and calm, and no frenzy, and work hard. That’s all you have to do, Libra. In your body.
So December also means looking after your health, particularly when Mars enters your sixth house of health Monday, December 19. This is when things, like your skin, can erupt. The skin is like a Libra thermometer. Disturbances in your body show up on the skin and in your joints and in your internal organs. What is the imbalance going on in your body? If you are having problems with your skin or joints or internal organs, look to what you’ve been putting into your body. It may be time for a purifying diet of some kind.
As you manifest into the world, so the world gives you a) more money and b) more choices. Greater security and different financial arrangements are on the horizon. You really choose much more how you want your money to go. A lot has been about your self-worth. As in, am I worthy? Do I deserve this?
It is time to learn how your behavior and your actions create all that happens to you. And also to learn how your early environment and family shaped your impulses, needs, and actions. As in a great deal.
Make this into a saleable product, whether it is your theory, or your dress design, your novel, your art, your business start-up. You profit from and with others while Jupiter is blessing your sign until October 10, 2017. You have eleven months to sell this.
This is good because, in between holidays, you will be working very hard. On your personal masterpiece. I talked about your masterpiece, your personal project, in last month’s horoscope. It is your do or die project. The one you don’t want to look back at in ten years time and wish you had given your all to (and didn’t do.).
With ruler Venus in your fourth house, home has been the place to be, and you’ve been quite squirreled away. Lucky Libra loves her home. But after December’s first week this all changes. The planetary support in your third house is amazing. Activating your bold new voice you have: life-saving Sun, brilliant Mercury, karmic Saturn, committed Juno, and that expansive new Sagittarius Moon on Tuesday, November 29.
All your third house rules:
Emailing, speaking, recording
Expressing yourself – particularly through movement
Being in closer touch with your siblings/cousins or neighbors
Short trips and visits
Sometimes, hands, arms, shoulders will be affected
And with forward progress, the rewards start to come in.
So keep expressing yourself for all you’re worth! Communications will get a bit blurry during Mercury retrograde, which begins Monday, December 19, so don’t take miscommunications to heart. Just chill as you go through its retrograde until after it goes direct again Sunday, January 8.
Which brings me to your mother’s original belief – in how beautiful you were. It’s true. How beautiful you are. The ancient Greeks wrote about your ruling planet, that Venus was so beautiful, flowers grew wherever she walked. She was so enchanting that she stole the wits even of the wise. Venus is your ruling planet!
It is important to educate and remind Libras about how beautiful they are. Libras can be exceptionally hard on themselves, and this begins at an early age.
I continue: This goddess of love and beauty was worshiped in many societies. The ancient Greeks called her Aphrodite. Venus is a muse, and through the ages she has been an inspiration to many artists. The oldest image of Venus ever discovered, the famous figurine called the Venus of Willendorf, is 27,000 to 32,000 years old
You are often mean to yourself, castigating yourself, and judging. Even going back into the past and wishing you could change things – beating yourself up about the choices you’ve made in your life!
And why have so many of you been feeling so isolated? And despairing?
Deep man Pluto (Hades, God of the Underworld) is in your fourth house of home, family, and childhood. You will have felt his rumblings already. Deciding if now, gawd forbid, you should leave the country. Live elsewhere. You will be making vital decisions about property and home, but not until January.
Okay, time to talk about work and your career.
You kick ass, Libra!
December is going to see you at your creative peak, and doing better and being more productive and more ambitious than you have been all year. Plunge into it. What have you been doing with your days anyway? A lot of wasted time, if we’re to be honest. Change-time! Consult your inner muse. Begin flexing your fingers. You are ready to begin.
Communications, writing, and the internet are all fantastic now, with the wealth of celestial bodies you have in your third house. You have wonderful connections, and you should be using them for all they’re worth.
You love someone very much. Whether present or past, they serve to transform you.
Vesta moves its streamlining in your eleventh house of friends – notice how more discerning you’ve been about friends lately? – and retrogrades at the beginning of December. And relaxes its strictness.
Vesta is goddess of fire and hearth. She is the fire burning through the unnecessary. Keeping, through the heart of the flame, the essential and the pure. So not only does your friend list get cleaned up, but you reconnect to your original dreams and wishes. As Michelangelo spoke of them: carving into the stone to find the original shape – in the stone.
In career, you want to explode into a whole other realm. You also want to make more money. You have come through the dark of this inner and exterior struggle and now you are shedding skins, climbing new mountains, a fresh leap into the unknown. No more dealing with the muck of the past. No more casting your pearls before swine, Libra!
Out, out damn spot! Like Lady Macbeth, you can’t make room for the new until you’ve examined the old. AND decided on what you don’t want anymore. Meditate on being strong.
There were those who took advantage of you, lied to you, cheated you. No more. Neither they, nor anyone like them, will be let into the inner circle anymore.On their side, they may complain that you are high maintenance, that you kevetch too much. While this may be true, you still need to stick up for your rights – all through the month of December.
What you REALLY need is to be constant this December. Whichever course of behavior you have decided upon as November ends is the one you MUST stick to. Your looks become a huge part of this. Changes are afoot here as well. Holiday time will be magic. Enjoy, Libra, enjoy!
P.S. Happy Holidays! First time ever: Your YEAR AHEAD 2017 forecast! It’s free, and it’s here.
Maybe time for your own private session?
If you’re hesitant, or haven’t been read before, please read what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with you, Libra. Please take care.
With love, Madalyn
