In numb horror after the latest, you are going to be okay. You have accomplished great things, including miracles, and there will be such again. Saturn, recently retrograde as of June 17, is in your house of health and productivity, and will not let up for another two plus years. Whatever you still need to do, to learn in these areas ruled by the sixth house, will be pounded into you until February 13, 2026. You will do magnificently. You will do what you need to do.
Your eleventh house is your most action-packed house this July, and this is where you are most helped now: your friends, some way distant in the past, some of whom you haven’t talked to in years, including past professional associations. Your ruler beauteous Venus goes retrograde in this house July 22 to September 3, and has a tendency to bring exes back into your life. You will want to return to long-forgotten sensations. But do not dive in. It is a time to be cautious.
You will also reflect back on yourself and try to find your right path. What if it were an easier path?
In your eleventh house you have:
The current Leo Moon
Your ruler beauty and lovey Venus (retrograde July 22 – September 3)
Brilliant Mercury after July 11
And what all does your eleventh house rule?
Your eleventh house, traditionally ruled by sociable Aquarius, rules:
Your social and professional circles
Including social media, such as your Facebook Friends
Groups and clubs to which you belong
Career colleagues, associates, contacts
Your highest hopes and dreams
Altruistic organizations, clubs, groups
Groups – and how you relate to being in them
Peer group pressure
All the advice you get (good and bad)
How you do or do not make the world a better place
The “It” Idea
For Librans who are undergoing health crises, here is a story for you about the timing of healing. Being patient with Nature – who follows her own course – is incredibly important.
It’s an old story, one you might have heard before…
A man found a cocoon of a butterfly, with a very small opening in it. For several hours, he sat and watched as a butterfly struggled to force its body through the tiny hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress.
He peered into the hole and saw that the butterfly appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could – it could go no further. Wanting to help, the man took a pair of scissors and gently snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
The butterfly emerged immediately and easily. But, to his surprise, the man saw that it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man expected the wings to expand to support the body, but that did not happen. The butterfly was never able to fly; in fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its short life crawling around with shriveled wings and a swollen body.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the small opening of the cocoon was nature’s way of forcing fluid from its body into its wings.
This way, the butterfly would be ready for flight once it achieved freedom from the cocoon.
If you knew that you would become a butterfly at the right time, would your struggle be more meaningful? An excess of impatience can encourage you to take shortcuts, to avoid necessarily painful learning experiences.
Some other helpful Venus retrograde Dos and Don’ts:
Your ruler Venus’ retrograde is a relatively rare occurrence, only occurring once every one and a half years. If you start a serious relationship during Venus retrograde, there will be difficulties. The passion evaporates after Venus goes direct again, September 3, and you spend the rest of the relationship trying to win it back. If you have an interesting partner in mind, keep him / her in mind – and begin after September 3! Unless you want a two month affair – which would be perfect for a Venus retrograde – best not to start a serious relationship during Venus retrograde.
Beware conflicts with loved ones – breathe before you speak – and now is a brilliant period in which to master your meditation practice. 10 minutes a day is all it takes.
No plastic surgery, including botox, filler, et al, July 22 to September 3, only exceptions being reworking previously unsuccessful plastic surgeries or continuation of the course of previously started operations.
No drastic, irreversible changes to your body, such as getting a tattoo or changing your hair color.
Venus retrograde does help you negotiate. And it is a lucky time to complete unfinished business.
Finally, it’s a good time to tidy up your wardrobe and get rid of everything old and necessary. The same should be done with jewelry and accessories.
You’ll get through it fine. It is just that that one or more of these areas – your home, early family, property – will transform to a new level. Good things come out of it, like more security in the self, long-term plans being implemented, finally producing your masterpiece.
Saturn, finally, when all is said and done, makes you grow up. And growing up is all about discipline. Doing the things you don’t want to do, and not doing the things you do want to do.
You will really, really get it together about how to take care of yourself.
Growing up. This is the final piece of your puzzle, dear Libra, and the one which your baby unconscious has been resisting.
You can still be a beautiful princess and play – or pine – but you will have a sensible grownup to look after her. You’ll be able to completely trust yourself to look after yourself and protect yourself.
Considerable accomplishments. Congratulations, Libra.
You go out of your way to impress people who are in a position to help you, and if you do the job right the rewards will be tremendous. It’s time to heal that pretty head of yours from a head-trip which was placed on you in the past – from someone who was jealous, and should have been more caring of you and wasn’t.
This was a blow to your success.
Deep breath now. Hand over your heart, pushing in a little. Another breath – feel your hand and your heart as you breathe. There. BREATHE. Deeply.
Allow that person’s guilt-trip to leave you now. It makes you feel as if you don’t deserve good fortune, and that is ridiculous. As if you are not worthy. A horrendous way to feel. There. It is Gone.
It is time to feel better about yourself, deeply better, dear Libra. A massive healing is taking place in your house of self-worth: money as self-worth. Yes, you will be earning more…
In your professional negotiations: Just grin if it kills you – and keep on smiling! Act as if you have plenty.
Be charming, charming, charming. As only you know how to do.
You’re very needed – on ALL levels – right now, and people just have to be reminded of that. You offer a lot, Libra.
And you do not come cheap.
Understand that you have been holding yourself back here. Although it comes from your family, it is up to you now.
And I can see you’re getting better already about money, Libra. I can feel it.
You do have to watch your spending though – money can fritter through your fingers.
And by the end of summer you’re ready for that fun holiday. You will need to put it off until then.
Cheer as your love planet Venus releases her power to you. Draw close again to those you’ve become separated from. You’ve been separated from everyone, including yourself, for too long. You are now saying goodbye to that time.
Happy Summer, Awesome Libra. I can’t wait to read you!
