Libra Season is my favorite time of year in part because it means autumn is about to begin with all its glorious colors and clear, crisp air; and in part because the Sun in Libra reinvigorates me as it passes over my Libra planets. It could be extra invigorating this time. 😀
For most Libras the default setting is the desire for a peaceful, harmonious life. That doesn’t mean they can’t stand up and fight back with great effectiveness. There are quite a few lawyers, generals and other militant types who are Libras. Naturally words are their weapon of choice and they can debate almost as well as Gemini . . . almost!
This year’s passage through the seventh sign will be more challenging than usual and we will probably see the “iron fist in the velvet glove” side of Libra much more frequently. The outer planets, with the exception of Uranus in Aries, are in signs that are less than compatible with airy Libra. Even though fiery Aries works well with Libra, the ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto complicates things.
The most intense period will be the first week in October leading up to the Libra New Moon on October 4. During that week the Sun will take its turn triggering the Uranus-Pluto square. The Libra New Moon is looking particularly contentious because both the luminaries will take part in a cardinal T-Square. Those who have personal planets in the cardinal signs from 9° to 11° will be most agitated by this event. It will a week later when the Sun squares Jupiter in Cancer on October 12, giving us one last jolt before a degree of calm returns.
All of us Libras will have the Uranus-Pluto square in our Solar Returns and many will have the Sun as part of a cardinal T-Square. Yes, your friends and relatives may be very surprised when their sweet, peace loving Libra turns out to have quite a bite this coming year!
Because Venus rules Libra we tend to forget it is a masculine air sign but this Libra Season we will be reminded of this frequently. Brace for more fierce arguments and fewer sweet smiles.
