Your life, as you knew it, is over. And new life begins. Like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, you will change form. Completely. You, and your value in this world. The surrealness of it all lifts by September 21 with Mercury’s clarity entering your sign, but as for your transformation – give yourself all the time you need. And you need a lot of it. Allow yourself to own September completely, and answer to no one. Respect time and nature in its process, and yourself as part of that process. There is no rush, and there is no control.
After a long and confusing time, resolution begins. For many of you this will be a deeply inward journey. A huge shift in – possibly the death of – a major relationship is indicated.
Speak to your unconscious — firmly, and as if to a toddler — and lift it up if it goes into too many dark places. Do not pressure or judge yourself all month! You will then see more accurately what you do or do not regret from the past. It’s crucial, Libra, to not pressure yourself or worry at this time. I’m going to share with you a cautionary tale that applies directly to you.
This is you – the caterpillar changing into a beautiful butterfly:
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 that 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, how differently might you react? Your desperation to help can encourage you to take shortcuts, to avoid necessarily painful learning experiences, and to end up killing the very one or thing you’re trying to help.
With other people in your life – as Libras are so apt to do – let them go at their own pace, on their own journey. You are not responsible for helping them or changing them. Do not feel guilty in any way.
You will also get real about your health and work in ways you haven’t up until now. You take more responsibility and face things head on. Lots of emotional growing up here!
Just remember: no rush. You are looking forward to great success following a bewildering time. But it is a strange – and bewildering – time!
You have some good old fashioned luck with friends and associates concerning money.
Now – and this is something else some astrologers might not tell you – but the Libra who has for so long suffered without her or his just desserts is going to be feeling some anger at this time.
Embrace it, dear Libra. I know you hate confrontation of any kind, but just BREATHE into it, and claim it as yours, as your protector if you would.
Know how much you deserve – in some cases, an awful lot – and quietly, in yourself, lay claim to what you deserve.
And this time, you have plenty of time.
Imagine what could be said…
There’s an element of past projects here as well, due to the lessons you have learned from Saturn. If a certain project failed in the past, try again – you will have learned what was and is necessary to make it work.
The new Moon on Wednesday, September 9 will provide you with new solutions. Mark that day as an important day to listen.
You have felt in a bleak place about this in the past. It is now past.
Remember: You are looking forward to success following a bewildering time.
Go into your own Private Idaho, lick your wounds, and rest. Crucial messages come to you in the quiet, from powerful dreams and possibly from those who have passed on. Surround yourself with silence and listen to it.
Stay put as much as you can. The twelfth house likes to contain you, whether it be in a healing center of your own making or a hospital. No jaunting around the world and cavorting with a hundred people.
Look at the support you – finally – have for this.
Listen to the planets, Libra, listen to the planets. For here you have: life-giving Sun; analytic Mercury as of September 5; nurturing Ceres; wise Pallas as of September 6; and a productive new Moon September 9.
They all boost: A new chapter or program of healing
All ruled by your twelfth house:
Getting in touch with your unconscious
Your imagination (and writing)
Activating your psychic gifts
Healing and therapy: WHY do you suffer so much?
Your Past and its various complexes
Buried Sorrows: the way you sabotage yourself
All physical inhibitions – including retreats and places of confinement – and your room!
Getting in touch with your fears
Having trouble sharing any of this with a partner or love interest? You won’t after mid-September.
That’s all you need to do.
The universe is working out the rest.
You’re also going to want to sleep more. It’s that time of year, when Sun goes inside and blesses your rest house until it enters your sign September 22.
Know that what you’re doing now is the right thing and have no worry. Express your ideas in writing – they are particularly potent right now.
Now more than ever, you want to find ways to still and calm your mind, such as meditation and yoga. If you don’t do anything else, do those two things. You need to replenish and regather your resources. Best to surrender, Libra, go inside and get comfortable, and not look to the outside world for answers for a while.
You’ll be fine. You will also never be attracted to wounded individuals in quite the same way again. You have been burned too badly, with little thanks for your efforts.
Yes, so you need to get help for yourself. Many, many secrets coming forward! Cover up jobs revealed. You are free to relax, stop feeling guilty, rest, and get back to communing with nature’s work. Your portrayals of everything, basically. In between, good friends really save you. Some friends you let go of, too, and that’s okay. You need protection now, not more stimulation.
For you, this happens in your retreat house, traditionally the house ruling hospitals and confinements. As soon as the Sun hits Virgo all you want to do is sleep. It’s been a crazy ride, hasn’t it? The recent dramas – yes, involving other people – had you ADD like nobody’s business. Yes you have work to do, this just means you RELAX, Libra. With less anxiety, you work better. And maestro, you need to work! Purely in the unconscious, private, most inner part of you.
No need to worry about others. You must focus. Laser beam. But, at the same time, you need to communicate. Vesta goes direct in your third house September 5. Your path shines brightly. To teach you how to do your craft. To do what you came here to do.
Let it be art. Have fun with it. Enough obsessing about death and fear of death and loss and change. It’s driving you bonkers. Snap out of it!
In terms of a conflict: play it cool. Ice cool. You really have to NOT care, dear Libra. I hate to say it that way, but it’s true. Only in this way will you allow the other person to make their move. (You’ve chosen a very stubborn, if not scared, individual!)
The self you have sacrificed for your work and public is no longer available to sacrifice. Somehow, you get all the parts of yourself back to do whatever you please.Your vision will soon be more clear. The parts of the puzzle finally start to make sense. Whatever you’ve been waiting for, assumes its real shape.
This is accomplished best in a private setting. You are about to “go more intimate” and for this, you need more privacy in your home. You will have no problem coming to an agreement or adjusting to a new location or life style. Manifesting your creativity or dreams into real productions brings you incredible joy.
This day, Today, was a brimming glass.
This day, Today, was an immense wave.
This day was all the Earth.
— The Eighth of September by Pablo Neruda.

With love, Madalyn
