Splurging on dreams of a different you? You don’t need to spend ANY MORE money, Libra! It’s mere substitution, and in May you claim what is rightfully yours. You don’t have to buy, Dorothy, it was in you all along…And this is your liberation. With your voice and delicious self-worth – opening the skies for you.
Social acceptance has been pretty obsessive lately, along with constant changes in plan, as a Mercury retrograde will do in your seventh house. People have just been nuts. Late, missing, lost souls, schizoid vampires. After Wednesday, May 3, that is done, Mercury goes direct – but remember to give it a few more days before it’s REALLY direct.
You’ve handled enough tense self-negotiations about your home and property and possessions, thank gawd that’s settled, and now it’s time to take on the challenges of your creativity. Saturn is retrograde until the end of August in your third house of writing and communications so it’s time to tie up loose ends there. Finish what you’ve been putting off forever – or at least, start again. (Libra, you are SO ready to quit your day job!!) There is an interesting dance here, sometimes tricky, in your fourth house ruling home, property – and, often, early family.
I say tricky because sometimes you must prepared to dance backwards (retro) to achieve your goals. In other words, it’s not all straightforward. It’s like a chess game. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a bishop, even your queen, to win the game.
Pallas is in your seventh house of partnership and marriage.
Well, allow me to introduce you to your approaching super power!
Pallas is the asteroid that rules wisdom and choosing your battles. Born from Jupiter’s head, and Jupiter’s favorite child, her power is second only to her father’s.
Thus, next to the planet of luck, Jupiter, she has the greatest power in the entire pantheon. Many horoscopes totally ignore her. Go figure. She represents creativity, initiative, planning, cunning, and strategy.
Giver of the olive branch (to Athens), Pallas Athena prefers diplomacy to conflict. BUT she leads her warriors into battle when necessary AND she’s the goddess of carpenters. Legend says she’s the one who helped create the Trojan Horse. Talk about planning and strategy in battle! That huge wooden horse which so delighted and intrigued the enemy they allowed it into their city. And we know what happened next…
Think back to 2004, what was going on concerning the areas of your third house, your neighborhood, moves, your writing and communications. You may have made a drastic move. This became a time for caution in your dealings with and judgments of persons, places, and things that felt alien to you. You have learned a lot since then. Enough so that you really should never have to learn these lessons again. No more drastic moves!
Until May begins – and this is very, very important, Libra! – you seem to be learning the final lesson you need to learn about opening your mind to other approaches, and other ways of thinking. Thinking outside the box. Thinking outside yourself, in that same old, same old way.
The excellent news is that, with some good cunning (think how the Trojan horse got let into the city) and some sharp insights from others, and with having absolutely reached your limit – as in I can’t take this a second longer – you get it. You have your strategy.
You tricked your greatest opponent (and this could very well be a part of you (that has allowed this horrible situation to continue for as long as it has) and you win your battle. You take over the enemy city.
Sometimes, it can mean getting out of your own way. Sometimes it means tricking yourself. As in tricking an ancient behavior or hidden psychology that makes you do stuff that isn’t good for you or doesn’t make you happy. (This has often been called therapy!)
The city you have to get into — with the cunning and strategy of a Trojan Horse — is — let’s call it, your Third City.
You have to get in there and fix and battle — wisely — the obstacles there.
You come up with new approaches. Brilliant you!
This will be your strongest point of healing, sweet Libra, over the next year.
What are your strategies for taking care of yourself here? How do you go after what you want? How do you handle the challenges?
Can you learn to use peaceful ways or do you need to go to battle? What form will your Trojan Horse take?
And whom do you have to trick? (It is most often old behavioral parts of ourselves. Nasty habits.)
Remember: you have Pallas Athena’s spectacular wisdom, strength, cunning, and will to help you heal this. And when you have, your sense of power and achievement — and happiness — will be extraordinary and triumphant.
And you will do it, Libra. I know you will.
The full Scorpio Moon on Wednesday, May 10 is a turning point for your finances and for your sense of worth. Librans all over the globe are asking for more money – and getting it. Without the usual struggle. You are terribly tired of that, and health concerns may arise this May which will solidify your position on this.
So don’t forget to look up at the night sky on May 10. The full Moon will give you a dramatic insight into a new way of healing and recreating your self and your life. The Moon will be brilliant and what you receive from it, even more so. It’s a psychic insight, it will make you feel much better – as in, it WORKS – and it will make you money.
Remember, sweet Libra, your community is what it’s all about. It’s not anywhere else. Use the luck of your Jupiter Sign to help you jump in easily and participate. The water’s fine!
Then it’s a time to let go. Everything is going at its right pace, and you can’t hurry things up no matter how hard you try!
Are you dreaming of a new self to inhabit? Follow the path to inhabit that new self. Look to your nutrition and exercise to prepare you here.
Are you dreaming of a new land to inhabit? Follow the path to see where this desire leads you. As May gets underway, travel is in the air and your ninth faraway house has some awesome forces lighting it!
This ninth house also rules learning and education so if you can not get away for that dream tour and vacation — and many of you cannot, you simply have too much work to do (and too many debts) — READ!
Travel and explore in your mind. Cultural pursuits always calms the panic in a Libra.
Embrace the environment you are in. It is the right one.
I would not leave it for another one. (In case you’re day-dreaming about that foreign clime!) I would work on yourself and your reputation right where you are! Do not get impatient…remember everything is going according to the Universe’s plan!
By now you will have realized that you are saying goodbye to an old way of life. One which you have outgrown and that is no longer serving you.
Work-wise, you are re-structuring and re-branding, ready to expand into a new direction. Expect the unexpected here, as Uranus rules mischievously in your seventh house of contracts and partnerships.
You will be putting career ahead of love this month, and it is right and fitting that you do so.
Embrace your metamorphosis, Libra. It is like that of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. The caterpillar has to die — but it is not gone — it has just turned into a butterfly. There is nothing to be afraid of.
And Libra, it is finally SPRING! Spring has sprung! Enjoy the beauty. And the love which is coming your way.
