    Libra the Scales in 2006
    Romance and Lifestyle

    Romance and lifestyle are on the rise in 2006, but you'll need to cut your coat according to your cloth, Libra. You'll want it all but you'll need to decide how much you can get at any given time. Saturn in Leo urges you to set your sights on the horizon, broadening the framework of your goals. Jupiter initially urges you to narrow the field of operations so you're not scattering your efforts. Jan and Oct/Nov are important times to not only move with caution but also to direct energy to what you want, not wasting time or money on distractions. A Grand Cross ushers in 2006, urging you to rein in lifestyle and spending to achieve something of real worth. Do the things that count as you pursue your dreams. Don't spend a penny more than you have to. But don't spend a penny less when it matters.

    Jupiter, lord of fortune, is in Scorpio till the end of Nov. Revise the budget. Balance the books. Understand your money situation. Broaden your financial base with investment or important purchases. Change or transform the income base. Use expert advice. Get rid of distractions and concentrate on what's important. Opportunity may come but it will bring an element of risk. Take the right chance and you'll do well. Be ruthlessly practical.

    On Nov 24th, Jupiter moves to Sagittarius, guiding you on an outward spiral, urging you to develop new communication skills or embrace new ideas. You may deal with overseas connections or those of foreign birth or different cultures. You may learn a new language, study religion or philosophy or broaden your field of knowledge. You may travel overseas to learn or expand your horizons. Some may travel for business. You may express beliefs or convictions more strongly. You can catch the tail of a comet or link up with people that think or speak or do things differently. New projects will be discussed or floated. New ideas will run. Take a risk or play your luck. There will be a slice of the latter to come your way with fortuitous meetings or opportunities.

    2005 Leo Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    Chiron, the wounded healer, and Venus the goddess launch the year from Aquarius and your solar fifth house. Romance with an erotic or unusual flavour will feature. Singles will meet someone new, someone that's different from the accustomed mold. Those in a relationship will need to refresh romantic and erotic life with new leisures, pleasures and romantic or lifestyle activities. Both 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. Learn to play with your lover and loved ones. Learn tantric yoga or ballroom dancing or hang-gliding, anything that will spice up the richness of life with something different. Changes with food or diet may feature. Creative endeavour should touch the way you live and the way you enjoy romantic or personal life.

    Venus is retrograde as the year begins, set to move back to Capricorn and your solar fourth house. There may be an element of withdrawal or reluctance with matters of love or money. You may pay for past spending or past relations. There may be old contacts or connections that return to your life. This may lead to a renewal of affection or to a healing about past matters. You may lay old ghosts with family. You may spend time with family to resolve past matters and develop new relations in the present. You may examine your life now and see how patterns from the past are reflected. Venus moves direct on Feb 3rd. You may consider the balance of lifestyle and career success in Mar and Aug, seeking to change what you're doing or how you're living in accordance with new needs.

    2005 Leo Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    Changes in romantic life, career, health or lifestyle will influence domestic life. You may make change at work or choose a different lifestyle and so change the way you live at home. You may decide to move for work or for lifestyle reasons. Older family members may find success or recognition. Early on, you will have the opportunity to spend time with family from whom you've been separated or somehow alienated. Take it! It can bring healing, resolution or closure with past matters. Siblings may travel or change their work situation or life direction from the last week of Nov.

    2005 Leo Work and Health Work and Health  Go to Top

    With Uranus in Pisces, the cycle of change with work, health or daily routine continues. There will be occupational change as some of you take a different avenue, especially if re-training is involved. You may branch out or be pushed by altered conditions. New interests will determine where you go. For some, care or service may be a theme while for others there may be creative or spiritual frontiers to cross. Changes at work or changing work patterns will become the norm. These may be disruptive, stimulating or unusual. Some may move out of the work suddenly or unexpectedly. Others not working may suddenly be thrown in at the deep end. Uranus is the master of reversals so don't worry if things don't go according to your plans. Life will have another plan. The reward for following it will be to 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.

    These changes are emphasized more strongly from Jun 22nd when the Lunar Nodes move out of Aries and Libra and into Pisces and Virgo. As they change, the Nodes clash with Pluto, underworld lord, setting in place a major cycle of breaks or changes that will culminate in Oct as Pluto squares the Nodes. During the course of this, some will break with familiar people or the customary environment where work, travel, neighbours and city life are concerned, seeking other circumstances. Some may leave a community of people either for a time or for good, deciding to walk away from the usual daily round for reasons of work, lifestyle or health. There may be clashes or opinion or belief that set you apart from others and send you in a different direction.

    2005 Leo Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    With Saturn in Leo, it's time to pursue important personal goals. You can gauge how successful your efforts have been in any direction by the level of acceptance or acclaim you gain. A leadership role may fall to you. Groups or teamwork may become a theme in the fulfillment of your dreams. You may decide to step away from one group and work with another. You may decide to go it alone, pursuing more individual goals, either personally or professionally. You may win approval or acceptance from superiors, authorities or the public. Success will come as a measure of the effort you put in. Important decisions about career and money will come in Jan and again in Oct/Nov. Don't be hasty making them! Watch for conflicting advice. Trust your inner judgement.

    With Chiron, the wounded healer, in Aquarius, some will move to creative endeavours or learn new skills or activities. Others may still struggle to find a balance with obligations in different areas of life. Some may make career change and move to something radically different. An unusual or challenging child may come into your life through someone else. A healer, teacher or creative individual may cast an influence over life direction.

    2005 Leo 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 turns retrograde in Pisces on Mar 3rd, squaring Pluto, underworld lord, as he does so. There may be change or disruption at work. Watch communications, equipment and travel arrangements in particular. There may be differences of opinion or belief that affect work or daily life. A work project may be scrapped or revived. Minor health matters may trouble, especially movement or impact related injury. Take care. Communications may be confusing or misleading. Keep a good perspective at this time. Things may not be what they seem. The cycle ends on Mar 26th.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Leo on Jul 5th, in range of a T-square with Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. There may be unexpected changes or reversals with friends or with dreams you're pursuing. You may fall out with a friend or experience a separation. Some may break from a social group because of a change in work. You may discuss options with someone in authority as Mercury moves back to Cancer on Jul 10th. You may revise your plans or strategies in dealings with professional matters or authorities. New activities or a new lifestyle may test social interaction. You may have too many ideas or strings to your bow and will need to slow down and sort out what you want. This cycle ends on Jul 30th.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on Oct 28th, in a conjunction with Jupiter. There will be unexpected change or developments with finance. There could be a reversal or an unexpected windfall. Review finances or holdings. You may have to consider the real cost of a purchase or a regular expenditure and put it into a bigger picture. Advice from experts or sharing the burden of costs may help with finance. You may look to plug a gap or make better use of what you have. The bigger picture with finance may touch your own financial situation. This cycle ends on Nov 18th.

    2005 Leo Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Your Full Moon comes on Apr 13th, bringing surprises or developments in partnership matters. Someone new may enter your life. There may be an adjustment of the balance in your relationship with someone. Relations at work may be subject to sudden change. You may change your image or the way you operate to suit new or changing circumstances. Feelings between you and someone else may suddenly come to light, changing relations between you.

    Your New Moon comes on Oct 22nd. Take charge. Set out in a new direction. Put career plans or new dreams into action. Don't wait for a moment. Be vigorous and energetic in pursuit of goals. Someone may throw their lot in with you. Make the most of support or advice for a scheme. Put your ideas out there. Older people may assist with plans. It's an opportune time.

    2005 Leo 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.

    Mar 14th brings a Lunar Eclipse with the Full Moon in Virgo. You may be tired or suffer from minor health problems. There may be change or difficulty with co-workers. Travel or communications at work may also be affected. An 'out of the blue' event may stop you in your tracks for a moment. Females or money could create minor glitches.

    Mar 29th brings a Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Aries. There may be a change or an end with a partner or close associate, either personally or work wise. The effects will be temporary. You may have to do without someone close for a time.
