A New Moon on the 4th in your romance and fun zone is a great way to start off the month as well as setting the tone for the 14th - Valentines day. While all cosmic signals point to this being a wonderfully romantic and fun month, some of you may find yourselves and questioning yourselves about what exactly does every different relationship serve in your life? This deep and intimate question will lead you in many different directions that you probably didn’t participate.
For partnered up Librans, you may feel as if you are doing all the heavy lifting at this time. That it’s all up to you. To make the plans. Make the reservations. Plan your joint social lives. Invite people over and entertain each and everyone of them. Becomes a bit much doesn’t it? However you are the sign that craves balance and harmony so it’s not that unusual for you to do everything. Just avoid being a martyr. Hopefully your other half will take care of the plans for Valentine’s day and let you simply enjoy the day and feel spoilt in the process.
Swinging single Librans have a hard time of it at this time of year. Valentine’s day is for lovers after all. We get confronted by February 14 everywhere we go. Flowers, chocolates and hearts literally in every nook and cranny of every shop in town. Hard to miss or avoid isn’t it? Don’t stay home eating ice-cream and pizza (in no particular order). Go out with your friends or have a potluck or a few beers with friends in front of the TV. Surround yourself with people you love and whose company you crave.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE - Uranus the planet of disruptive change, non conformist attitudes and vibrant energy spends his last month in Aries, your one on one relationship zone this month. He jets off into Taurus next month where he spends the next 7 years.
Take advantage of his last tour of duty in Aries now.
Venus your ruler and the planet of love and relationships spends the first half of November in retrograde mode, backtracking through your 2nd house of cash flow and self-esteem through the 16th before finally moving direct and direct in your sign too! Great news for you Librans. Through December 3 Venus will bless your sign and for single Librans, it’s time for you to get out there, mix and mingle and be on the lookout for someone you click with. Keep in mind that with Venus in retrograde mode through the 16th, you can expect to hear from people from your past – and possibly even have a reunion with the one who got away. If you’re up for a second try, fine – just be sure that you have the answers to the old problems that split you apart in the first place.
And do keep in mind that Mercury, the planet of communication and clear thinking is out of phase in your communication zone November 16 – December 6. Taking time to think about what you are about to say and the time and place you’re going to bring the situation up is vital. Especially for those of you in an attached relationship. Words can be weapons at times Librans. Being aware of this and not saying things that are only going to hurt other people’s feelings is on your ‘to do’ list at this time. The 16th is a date to remember, with Venus your ruler moving direct and Mercury moving out of phase for his last retrograde journey of 2018.
YOUR LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP ADVICE IN NOVEMBER – Delays and roadblocks could very well be everywhere this month Librans. If you feel your partner is dragging his or her feet on something important to you, it’s time for you to be more assertive and let them know that you need a decision and you need it sooner than later. The Sun in your solar 2nd house of finances will get into an easy sextile aspect with intense Pluto on the 11th, giving you the perfect opportunity to take another shot at solving a rather nagging issue.
Birthday boys & girls Librans (September 24 – October 23)
The main event of October as I told you last month is the retrograde movement of Venus, your planetary ruler and the Goddess of love, money and beauty. Venus only goes out of phase every few years, and this time she retrogrades in Scorpio, your 2nd house of self-esteem and self-worth October 5 – November 16.
This is sure to throw a ‘spanner in the cosmic works’ Librans. As is a Venus-Mars square October 10, which could throw more than a few issues your way. Particularly if you and or your other half have been feeling underappreciated and overlooked of late. At best, use the energy of Mars in your self-esteem zone and Mars in your romance and creativity zone to talk things out mid-month and try to clear the air. Avoid going down the ‘manipulation road’ and don’t let anyone pull that line on you either. Be open, honest and if you have issues, this is the time to bring them up and make sure your discussions are helpful, direct and to the point.
For singles, this is a time to enjoy being single. With your ruler Venus out of phase you might realize that unless someone too good to be true comes along, this is not the time for you to be dating and trying to fall in love. Things are way too hit and miss right now. Enjoy time with your friends, family and pets instead.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE IN OCTOBER – No sudden moves this month Librans. Venus going out of phase is definitely a time to set pause and or reset on your love life. If you feel that something needs to change/shift now is the time to approach that and slowly but surely work towards that and see what that would look like.
A loving sextile between Venus and Mercury in playful Leo, your 11th house of hopes and wishes September 3 will help turn your attention toward a certain person who makes you feel special like no one ever has. If it’s a new romance and they invite you to ‘Meet the Parents’ go for it, even if some of you feel as if it’s a bit rushed.
Venus your planetary ruler and the Goddess of love and relationships remains in your sign through the 10th. The first 10 days of September are definitely days for you to establish a soli connection between you and a new love interest or your life partner. Keep in mind that Venus is going out of phase in Scorpio October 5 – November 16, your 2nd house of self-esteem and self-worth. Seeing as Venus is your ruler, this will have a profound effect (and more than likely not a good one) on your love life. If there is anything that needs to be said, fixed or made clear on the love front, do it now.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE – An argument September 23 will have long lasting repercussions Librans so no matter how badly you want to stand up and speak your case, you have to make sure you don’t say anything you might regret or wish you could have said differently.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Venus your ruler, the planet of love and harmony transits your sign from August 6- September 9. Just the boost your sign needs to push forward with a romantic relationship or get back into the dating scene. Your already amazing charm will be amplified even more this month and you’ll find you attract all sorts of admirers as Venus plays matchmaker. Whatever you do single Librans, don’t play with people’s hearts and minds. If you’re not interested don’t give anyone you are involved with false hope about a friendship or flirtation turning into something more.
Mercury the planet of clear thinking and communication finally moves direct August 19, which will give both single and attached Librans a time to talk things through with their other half or someone they are dating. If things have been running hot and cold lately, it’s due to Mercury being retrograde as well as Mars being out of phase in Aquarius, your romance and self-fulfillment zone through August 14, then retrograding further back into your domestic zone. You could it more difficult to separate life and all of its chaos and drama from your sex and love life with your other half.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE IN AUGUST – If a purely platonic relationship is looking like something more is about to happen, you need to sit down and figure out exactly what’s going on. You don’t want to give someone false hope and you don’t want to get your hopes up!
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Your ruler Venus, the Goddess of love and relationships spends the first 9 days in your friendship, hopes, dreams and wishes zone. A friendship could turn even friendlier early in the month and if that is something you have hoped for, push ahead with it by all means. However if your intuition warns you that it’s not a good idea for you and could cause issues between you and your other friends, pull back Librans.
Once Venus moves into your past karma zone on the 9th, an ex you have never forgotten or gotten over could cross your path again. Some of you may be tempted to take up with someone who’s not quite available, or it may be that you are already spoken for and can only really enjoy a mild flirtation at best. Be careful with that though Librans. The truth could come out around the 25th and cause more than a few issues.
YOUR LOVE ADVICE FOR JULY – Single? Sexy Mars out of phase in your romance zone suggests that you might reunite with an ex simply because you feel it’s better than being single. July is probably a good month for you to sit tight romantically and not go back to something that didn’t work the first, second, third time.
The first weekend of the month is set to be absolutely terrific one for you Librans. The emotional Moon in your fellow air sign of Aquarius, the Sun in Gemini and Mercury in Gemini conspire to make it the perfect time to do something wonderful – either with your partner or with your friends. It’s while with your friends that you should be on the lookout for an interesting ‘prospect’ Librans. Geminis and Aquarians are both purrfect matches for you and you will recognize them in an instant.
For couples, Venus the planet of love and Saturn the planet of regulations will get into an uncomfortable meet up on the 19th, pretty much making sure of the fact that whatever it is you’re trying to get over and done with will be tricky to do. While this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to carry if off, you might have to adjust to circumstances beyond your control. Or beyond control of that of your partner. It could be a financially based issue which can always lead to drama too.
YOUR JUNE LOVE ADVICE – The New Moon in Gemini on the 13th is a great time to ‘reinvent’ yourself in some way Librans if you feel you are getting a little ‘stale’. Whether it’s changing your hair, make up or dress style, just a subtle shift can make you feel more desirable and also make you feel better about yourself.
Last Month’s Love Horoscope for Libra
Loving and partner oriented Venus will spend half the month in your fellow air sign of Gemini, your 9th house of spirituality and philosophy. This is a great time to be in a relationship for those of you who are with someone who inspires you and vice versa. If you don’t think you are on the same cosmic wavelength now is the time to fix that, make some changes and be more aware of talking to him or her about how you feeling about pretty much everything.
The New Moon on the 15th occurs in your 8th house of shared resources and finances – another touchy subject that you might discuss with your other half in May. Being a New Moon it will definitely help you to work things out and come to some major and important decisions for moving forward financially together.
If you’re single, Venus in Gemini is great for meeting someone while traveling, at a course or seminar and you should definitely be taking stock of who’s around you when doing any of those things.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Use the presence of Venus in Gemini to iron out any and all differences you and your other half may be having and keep in mind that with Mercury the communicator in Aries through the 14th, discussing issues will be easy.
Love and Relationship Guide
Libra: The “Eternal Lovers”
Natural pleasers and romantics, they are always seeking of thoughtful ways to please their partner. Balance and harmony are important to them so they look for diplomacy in a relationship and try to minimize conflict as much as possible. Considered the most loveable among all the zodiac signs, they are known as the “eternal lovers”.
YOU PREFER A CO-PILOT IN LIFE
Ruled by Venus the goddess of love and relationships, it makes sense that you are better coupled up in most cases than going it solo. That said, you’re an air sign, so time alone is very necessary indeed for the majority of you – and you can often be in a fulfilling relationship and live in different parts of the world.
You excel at making your home a cozy castle – fit for a King or Queen, filled with elegant finishes and lots of candles and knick knacks. You also play hard to get at first – you usually have a long list of potential candidates and you are known for often looking for the ’bigger better deal’ when you’re younger. Some of you may run into an ex or three who tell you how you broke their heart years ago– when you weren’t even aware their heart was involved. Your charm and magnetism is hard to find and anyone who’s been madly in love with a Libra will attest to how hard it is to get over you – and how easy it seems for you to move on! While it’s often all an act and you are truly wounded, nothing makes more sense to you than going out and finding someone else to fill your empty bed and you are capable of not holding on to any ill will and being a great ex too!
The best sign for you astrologically is someone born under the sign of Aquarius. They too need their time out but like being in a relationship, while Gemini’s are another air sign that you can find easy to talk to and with whom you feel is a good match for you and your social scene – which is very important to you.
Aries are your opposite match and light a fire in your sexual arena but it usually runs its course and you can find they are way too possessive. Leos are another fire sign that you enjoy your time with but on a full time basis you may feel they are too high maintenance for you.
Ruled by charismatic Venus, the social butterfly of the zodiac, you like to have all kinds of friends – from bankers, to poets to bus drivers to CEO’s – your mobile is full of handy numbers and connections for anything and everything. Making and keeping friends is never a problem for you. You like fast thinkers like yourself – Gemini’s and Aries tend to get back to you ASAP when you’ve got your thinking cap on and are coming up with a great idea – such as a surprise party for your partner or a birthday party for a mutual friend. Aries and Sagittarians are your ’go to’ friends who always help you get the ball rolling in the right direction and whom are always up for a drink after work or a quick bite and like going to the latest hotspots and being chatted up! Did we mention you can be a bit of a flirt?
Emotionally you tend to shy away from huge family scenes and dramas. You like everyone to get along and be nice to each other and that’s not always the case – so when you feel the tension mounting, you often do a disappearing act or become very busy at work! While you usually move out and start your life early on – often traveling overseas for work –you love sending care packages home and keeping your loved ones updated with your adventures. While you might not be as close as you would like with your immediate family, you are usually the best Uncles and Aunts anyone would wish for!
TALK TO ME…
The sign symbolized by the scales of justice, you like the conversation to flow and are much more interested in politics and world and human stories versus gossip and trifling love life dramas. Heated debates with others flare up and are easily reconciled with you playing referee and calming down over zealous friends and family members. And while it may take some doing (as you can be a wee bit stand offish/shy at first), once you make a friend they are usually in your life for the long haul. Aries, Geminis and Sagittarians are all great friends for you throughout your life.
WHEN TALKING TO…
Another Libra – You instantly recognize in each other the need to be at peace within yourselves so you can help others achieve the same thing. Your love of art, fashion, nice watches, cars, furnishings etc. will always give you two airheads something to chat about.
Scorpio – You will probably feel as if you talk way too much and that they simply observe you. Scorpios make you feel slightly out of the loop at times – as they are so good at hiding what they are feeling or thinking where as you tend to wear it loud and proud.
Sagittarius – always make you laugh at their willingness to try anything once – and their quick repartee makes them the perfect companion for you anywhere and everywhere. Sags won’t allow you to be shy either – they will drag every last drop of information out of you and make you their bff!
Capricorn – While they have a great head for business, you find that these earthlings don’t quite get your sense of style or natural charm and ease at social gatherings. However if you want to talk about real estate or what car to buy next…
Aquarius – The most aloof sign in the zodiac meeting up with you who can be rather aloof yourself can mean a cone of silence for about 5 minutes while you work out what’s what – and then you realize you have so much in common and like to talk about anything and everything that everyone else isn’t talking about.
Pisces – can be way too sensitive for you at times. You enjoy their emotional side and the fact that they are very creative like yourself, however you don’t need to know every facet of their lives straight off the bat and might put them in the ’too hard basket’ in the communication line up.
Aries – While they love to control the conversation and will tell you way too much about themselves way too quickly, you enjoy their brutal honesty and their quick wit. Plus they have usually have great memories and if you mention a song or an actor they instantly come up with the name or band and you love that!
Taurus – Both of you are Venus ruled and both of you love looking good, smelling good and the finer things in life. So if you’re talking about fashion or homes and decorating ideas, you’re golden. Anything else and you might both feel slightly strained to make small talk.
Gemini – Another air sign with whom you simply click from the get go. Music is often your mutual love and dancing and singing karaoke is something you both love to do. Networking is another thing you both excel at and as business partners, you are unstoppable.
Cancer – Ruled by the Moon, they tend to be rather unpredictable. You will spend a lot of time talking to them about their feelings and problems and get nowhere because the next time you see them everything is fine!
Leo – They think the Sun rises and sets on them and you think they’ve got more front than a department store but you appreciate the fact that they have got it going on and more sass than class half the time! They too are upfront with you and being fire signs, you will never run out of spicy topics of conversation.
Virgo – you like to keep the chat light hearted however Virgos can often dig deep and you will end up feeling as if you’ve sat for an exam or been cross examined after talking to them or hanging out with them.
