LIBRA SEPTEMBER 22 – OCTOBER 22
LIFESTYLE, CAREER AND GOALS
For years you’ve felt things could be better, but have been seeking that breakthrough that would take life, your activities and your job or career to a new level. While certain events or offers constituted real improvements, it still wasn’t what you were hoping for. Since September 2016, you’ve benefited from the influence of the planet of good fortune, Jupiter, in Libra. While this has introduced promising, if not exciting, encounters, ideas and offers, they still didn’t fulfil that fantasy.
The shake-ups triggered by August’s two eclipses will help you realise that the perfect situation, relationship or arrangement you’ve hoped for doesn’t exist. But, also, you’ll begin to recognise how your feelings of disappointment that these aren’t perfect have overshadowed what is wonderful – and often better than you’d imagined possible. So during this period, your feelings of success come half from exactly that, your mood, and half from events that are thrilling but, possibly, not the fantasy you’d envisioned.
Analyse this carefully. By October 22, when the planet of action and enthusiasm, Mars, moves into Libra until December 9, you’ll employ the energy it brings to discover joy in what you have, not to search for what you were dreaming of.
Can you plan ahead to create good fortune, to create financial wellbeing? You can, and what you think about, the ideas you discuss and the people you talk to now, during the last half of 2017, will contribute to the plans you devise during this period flourishing as you move into next year. Thinking ahead is always important but especially in terms of your resources, finances and assets.
That’s because with a powerful planetary emphasis on existing arrangements developing, often surprisingly well, and new ventures coming from out of the blue, you’ll need to be ready to think and move swiftly. And you’ll need to be ready to take chances, too. While your clever mind and inquisitive nature could be said to be an asset, sometimes you overthink things, and you could easily do exactly that beginning now, and as you move into the potentially prosperous 2018. This is where the sudden changes triggered by August’s eclipses are crucial, because they, too, will prevent you mulling over your options for too long.
Begin now to respond swiftly, ideally within a day if not hours, to ideas, offers or unexpected events. You’ll be amazed how well things go, and without your usual analysis.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
No sign is more loving, and has a greater desire to see family, loved ones, offspring, close friends and even neighbours or colleagues be happy, thrive and live a relaxed, calm and joyous life. Yet, however good things get, there’s always something that disrupts that serenity. This is because life’s about ups and downs, and the bumps in the road are as essential to growth as the quiet moments of discussion and togetherness. What’s more, not every sign shares your desire for a harmonious existence.
Some actually enjoy battling issues out with others, while as many love time alone away from everybody. The current pair of eclipses are shaking up this side of your life, and giving you a glimpse of what it’s like to forget about harmony and, instead, finding a new way of being together, as family, friends or even colleagues. It’s the same if you’re looking for love.
Consider somebody who isn’t your ideal, and you may discover an entirely new way of spending time with, and caring about, another person. Once that happens, you’ll stop worrying about harmony and start enjoy life as it is.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
The realisation that you don’t need to give as much thought to others. This has been automatic, so could come as a big shock. But it will be one that, gradually, frees you to be more yourself.
