    Libra the Scales in 2005
    Communications and Social Interaction

    Venus the goddess blazes in fiery Sagittarius as the year begins, conjoining with Pluto, lord of the underworld, and Mercury the messenger in your solar third house. This will be an active year, with communications and social interaction on the agenda. For some there will be business ideas in abundance and a busy working environment. For others there may be education, learning or travel, bringing powerful encounters in the realm of the mind or on the road. Some may embrace new beliefs, breaking away from old frameworks of thought. Others may learn new ways of communicating or new systems of knowledge. New associates may spring out of nowhere, bringing fascinating or intense interchanges. There may be conflict of ideas or opinions. Siblings may travel. New neighbours may come. Expect an exciting year that will open new avenues for your mind or your life.

    This outward spiral is intensified with Jupiter, lord of the heavens, in your sign, a cycle that began in September last year. Growth and development are ongoing themes. Expand horizons until the end of October. Move onward and upward! For some there will be rewards as past efforts are recognized by an increase in status. For others, there will be simple luck or unexpected opportunity. You may be in the right place at the right time if you trust to fortune. Some will want to study or travel or both and thus open new paths. This era could herald a change for the better in relationships. For those in a partnership, a deeper sense of feeling or commitment may come. Good fortune may bless your joint efforts. For singles, there may be an opportunity for romance. This is a time of widening horizons, but keep an eye on the waistline. Jupiter offers fortune and opportune change, but he can also lead to indulgence if we're not careful. Overall, the lord of fortune bestows his blessings on the Scales until the end of October. After that, he enters Scorpio and your solar second house, calling attention to fiscal matters.

    2005 Libra Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    With Venus the goddess in your third house as the year begins, there may be a busy social calendar and shared activities with your partner. Your partner may lead the way or introduce you to new connections. You may become more interested or involved with their ideas or interests. Study, travel overseas and connections with people of other cultures may play a part in this. Singles will also have a busy schedule, one that may bring romance. Look for the important encounter may come in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Travel or contact with those from overseas may be part of such a meeting. Be careful though, as some connections will pass as quickly as they came if they rely on impulse.

    Chiron the wounded healer moves into Aquarius and your solar fifth house of romance in late February. He remains there until August and then returns there in December. There may be an important romance for some, one with an erotic flavour. For others, new or unusual leisure or recreational activities will become part of the calendar. You may make lifestyle changes, seeking a different kind of existence. For some, a child will enter your life. For others, new skills or working methods will become part of your activity cycle.

    Jupiter moves into Scorpio and your solar second house on October 26th. Get out the budget and do some revision. Balance the books and make sure you understand your money situation. Some of you will want to broaden your financial base through investment or importance purchases. Others may seek to change or transform the income base. Use expert advice. Get rid of distractions and concentrate on what's important. Opportunity may come for some of you but it will bring an element of risk. Take the right chance and you will do well.

    2005 Libra Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    As the year begins, Chiron the wounded healer is in Capricorn and your solar fourth house. This year though he comes to the end of a long journey as he moves into the sign of Aquarius and your solar fifth house from February to August. After a brief return to Capricorn, December sees him establish himself for the new journey. Thus, this will be a mixed year in terms of its influences at home. You will need to understand the past and your family history in order to find your way forward. Spend time dealing with old situations in order to understand the roots of your emotional patterns. There can be a healing power in the challenges of home, history and family if you face fears and break past patterns. Work through any issues, giving all that is asked of you and you will heal old wounds or lay ghosts to rest. However, there will be signs along the way to indicate it's time to launch out in new directions, taking command of your life in a more potent manner. New dreams, ventures, creative projects and perhaps children will open the door to the future. Just make sure that you've understood the road by which you came to where you are.

    Saturn, measurer of effort, in Cancer sees the cycle of responsibility with loved ones and family members continue for a time. Make sure you do what's expected or needed for your home or your family. These obligations play a strong part till July when Saturn moves into Leo and your solar eleventh house. From there, matters of success and fulfillment of your hopes and wishes will be the important focus.

    2005 Libra Work and Health Work and Health  Go to Top

    Revolutionary Uranus gathers momentum in Pisces and your solar sixth house after moving there last year. Thus, the cycle of change with regard to conditions around work, health and daily routines continues. Some will change occupation, moving down a new or different avenue, especially if re-training is involved. Either you will branch out for yourself or be pushed into change by changed circumstances. Unusual conditions or new interests could determine where you go. For some, care or service may become a theme while for others there may be creative or spiritual frontiers to be crossed. Changes at work or changed work patterns will become the norm. These may be disruptive or just stimulating or unusual. Some may move out of the working environment suddenly or unexpectedly. Others not working may suddenly be thrown in at the deep end. Uranus is the master of reversals of condition so don't worry if things don't go according to your plan. Life will have another plan for you to follow. And, if you follow it, the reward will be that you discover new potentials, skills and experiences that reveal different sides of you.

    Changes in the pattern of daily life will set new directions, health wise. Some of you will embrace new diets, exercise programs or alternative treatments. If you have problems with the nervous system or toxicity, take proper steps to deal with them. Some of you may learn to care for yourselves in a different way while others may have to learn to care for those around you. The healer's path may call some of you by dint of personal experience. The key to good health in this era will be found in your readiness to change your thinking and embrace a new way of life. With warrior Mars in Sagittarius testing Uranus in Pisces as the year begins, take no risks with speed or with work-related travel.

    2005 Libra Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    Saturn's continues his journey through Cancer and your solar tenth house, keeping the emphasis on responsibility. Some of you may be in a cycle of hard work as you bring plans to fruition or maintain an arduous schedule. There may have been promotion at the root of such change or just an increase in workload. For others, the demands of family, especially children or elderly folk may have brought additional responsibility. Such developments will have impacted on relationships or personal life and may have taken time or energy away from those close to you. Seeing matters through to a conclusion is the important goal so deal responsibly and authoritatively with what must be done, but try to maintain a good balance between duty and personal life. Negotiate! Be patient. Persist!

    On July 16th, Saturn moves out of Cancer and into Leo and your solar eleventh house. You may finally come free of obligation to pursue important personal goals. You will have a chance to gauge how successful your efforts in any direction have been by the level of acceptance or acclaim that you gain. Groups or teamwork may become a theme in the fulfillment of your dreams and a leadership role may fall to you. You may win the approval or acceptance of superiors, those in authority or the general public. Remember though, success will come to you as a measure of the effort you've put it. As Chiron the wounded healer is moving through Aquarius and your solar fifth house as Saturn changes sign, some of you will move into new creative endeavours or embark on a new cycle of activity. Others however may still struggle to find a balance with obligations in different areas of life. Creativity, play and healthy recreation will be important tools on the road to success. Some of you may make a career change and move into something radically different on the road of life. For some, an unusual or challenging child may come into your life. For others, a healer or creative individual may cast some influence over your life's direction.

    2005 Libra Mercury the MessengerMercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    Mercury's first retrograde cycle is in Aries and your solar seventh house. You will need to pay attention to partners and close associates. There may be misunderstandings or even hot words with your nearest and dearest. Take the familiar diplomatic role and work your way through any concerns that your partner may have. For some there may be an interrupted cycle in communications with partners. For others there may be downright confusion. This period begins on March 20th and ends on April 12th.

    The messenger's second reverse motion cycle begins on July 23rd in the sign of Leo and your solar eleventh house. You may receive a setback with plans or you may simply go through a change of mind or heart about something. Review your situation rather than making final decisions. There could be difficulty with friends, through misunderstanding or perhaps simple confusion. Someone may move out of your circle for a time. Creative work or projects will need some revision. This cycle ends on August 16th.

    The final retrograde cycle begins on November 14th in Sagittarius and your solar third house. Take care while travelling. Avoid it altogether if you can. Travel overseas may be most susceptible to alteration or difficulty. Double check arrangements if you have to go ahead. Communications will be troublesome. There may be misunderstandings or clashes of views or opinions. Communication devices may cause difficulty. Service them ahead of time! There could be confusion or setbacks with business plans. Neighbours or siblings might be problematic. The cycle ends on December 4th.

    2005 Libra Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Your Full Moon comes on March 25th, bringing harmony with Venus, Mars and Chiron. This could be a joyful or romantic time and communications or social engagements are favoured. A creative pastime or project may come to fruition. If you're single, you may be favoured with an encounter. If you're in a relationship, there could be important doings or just an old-fashioned good time. If there are troubles or troublesome encounters, they may bring a sense of healing or closure for past events.

    Your New Moon comes with a Solar Eclipse on October 3rd. Harmonies from Saturn and Neptune help to usher in a new life cycle. Some of you may leave something behind or end an involvement or connection while others may take up the mantle of responsibility and confirm a course of action or a commitment. Keep your dreams alive but measure the situation by what needs to be done rather than what you would like to happen. Friends may be a support or you may have to lead the way for others. There may be a change with your goals or your direction because of other obligations.

    2005 Libra Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.

    A Solar Eclipse comes on April 8th at the New Moon in Aries and your solar seventh house of partners and close associates. There may be a change or an ending with those close to you. Some may come to the end of a partnership cycle, either romantically or in business. Others may find a break or a separation interrupts close connections. A partner may make a new beginning. You may have to treat someone close in a different way.

    April 24th brings a Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon in Scorpio. This comes in your solar second house of personal moneys and resources. You may need to balance the budget after a change in your financial circumstances or an unexpected expense. Incomings and outgoings may be mismatched and you will need to keep a tight rein on the purse strings. Make sure your lifestyle isn't at the root of economic problems. If you have to spend on children, try to keep it to a minimum.

    The Full Moon in Aries brings a Lunar Eclipse in your solar seventh house on October 17th. There could be a change with close contacts or connections. There may even be something of a fuss that goes with it. Feelings between you and a partner may be running at a high, necessitating strong action of some kind. Wait for the fallout before you assess what it is that needs to be done.

    2005 Libra Special Event Special Events  Go to Top

    Warrior Mars is retrograde in Taurus and your solar eighth house from October 1st until December 8th. This could institute a period of financial revue. You may have to look in particular at joint finances. The credit card and the overdraft will need attention. You may have to change spending patterns or make spending decisions about what's an important budget item and what's not. Don't commit to extravagant expenses or major financial undertakings either before or during this time for there could be unexpected developments that change the picture, especially in early November. Coming back to a view of what's necessary will be the great problem solver. Some may lose a valuable possession or have to do without it while others might have to tighten their belts. This is a management period and you can come through it in good shape if you simply follow the behest of necessity rather than impulse. For some of you, there may be conflicts with intimacy or sexuality. For others, there may be a resurgence of an old passion. Don't conduct liaisons in secret otherwise there will be a blow-up later on as such matters come to light. It will benefit all to spend some examining what drives you and how you go about getting what you need.

    Just as December comes to an end, Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Aquarius and your solar fifth house. Thus, you may begin the New Year with an unexpected turn of events with romance, money or both. Take a deep breath and review your circumstances before you decide on a course of action. For some, dealings with children will go through change or children will bring change. For others, a creative project will require a re-think. In romance, those with partners may come to a temporary change of state or even have the 'long term' future under the microscope. Singles may find themselves pondering their romantic destiny. For some, an old flame may be rekindled. For others, there could be a period of solitude of withdrawal. Step back from things for a time. There may less colour in your world but, in the end, that may make it easier to see issues around relationships all the more clearly.
