LIBRA

No more guessing games in love

Values add passion

Shift your focus -change your world

No more guessing games or rejection dances as 2022 brings choices, commitment and fresh partnership potential. The past seven years might have seen those Libran scales involved in a see-saw cycle of questions, on-again, off-again connections or simply you feeling that love had passed you by. Sure, you might have encountered people who have reshaped your ideas around love and who you will never forget, but the other side of this might also have been not knowing where you stood or else just left with the impression you had gone from hot – to not.

This may not only have impacted on your personal relationships but your professional one too with employers just not seeming to want what you’re selling. Others may have been in the position where they have been doing the rejecting as what was on offer just wasn’t what they wanted. Sudden and unexpected changes in your relationship status could have turned your world upside down. So, let’s talk about putting the world to rights and re-balancing those scales again which is what the start of 2022 – and indeed, all of it, offers you.

Sure you start the year with ruler Venus backwards facing in your 4th of home, family, security and what defines your sense of place. And this also puts those love and money matters on hold. To add to the stop/start feeling of January we also have Mercury retro in your 5th of lovers, children and self-expression from the 14th. This puts you in key planning mode all the way on into February. So, see this as an opportunity to get very very clear about what you want and what no longer serves. In every way from how you live to how you love.

The new Moon in its ruling 4th on the 2nd is a call to look at whether or not you have been putting your own needs first lately. Or at the very least on equal footing to those of others? Those ‘gut’ feelings need to be seen a signposts now. Pointing you towards what is right for you and what isn’t. So, please heed them as along with the retro weather, you have the opportunity to course correct or make adjustments right at the start of the new year as opposed to later. So, once Venus heads direct from the 29th and Mercury next month, there’s no more time wasting or putting that energy into what simply no longer works for you, Libra.

Because this Moon is in practical, pragmatic Capricorn, you are able to disern the difference between mere emotional knee jerk reactions and your emotional truth. And therefore know you are making the best possible decisions as a result. This will set you up to live better for the rest of ‘22. And even make big inroads to those long term ambitions.

I mentioned no more guessing games around love. Yes, Venus retro will always reveal whether something is all it appears to be. Or built to last. Venus and Juno meet on the 7th and the Sun and retro Venus on the 9th. Juno wants to check those commitments for continued relevance. Or see you make new ones as it meets Pluto on the 24th. You have to feel it to commit to it. And you won’t be able to fake it if you don’t now.

Equality, being taken seriously by your significant other or even those you share your space with, matters more than ever now Vesta joins the line up in your 4th from the 12th. As does owning your path and direction. Strangely all this retro weather favours gathering up what works and repurposing it with new intent. Just as it does releasing what doesn’t. Above all, you now need to be seen as a powerhouse of positive intention by everyone close to you. And taken at your word. Yes, you are striving for dilomacy and balance as always. But you are now prepared to show you mean what you say if a compromise cannot be reached. Especially after Mars joins those 4th house planets from the 24th.

This month’s full Moon in your 10th on the 17th will highlight how others perceive your intentions and also call on you to enforce them if needed. Come from the head and not the heart and prepare to deliver on what you promise whether it is that deadline at work or telling someone close to you that you are not prepared to put up with something any longer. Act with emotional authority and understand that while you cannot control someone else’s response, you are always in control of your own.

Shore up anything that adds to or enhances your security – financial, material or emotional. And above all, set those values to ‘unshakeable’ ahead of the first major shift of ‘22 when the North Node enters your 8th on the 19th. It’s not just Venus retro that removes the guessing games around love, relationship and what you want, Libra. Uranus in your 8th which is direct from the 18th, has been busy refining your value system for some time. Now, with the arrival of the North Node in here, you can put this into action.

Shift your perspective and align to empowerment

It’s been 19 years since the Node was last in here. But last time you didn’t have Uranus present. So this time around expect shifts and cycles around your money, salary, legacies, benefits, what you share, sex and self-empowerment to shake up your core beliefs and put you on a path towards what truly adds value. As opposed to what doesn’t. Long term financial decisions come full circle as could choices around who you got into bed with on either a personal or material level. Expect shake and bake transformations to occur and your sexual/financial landscape to shift in a way that offers both freedom and alignment with what you deep down know is right for you.

The Sun in your 5th from the 20th lightens the retro load and dissolves those serious shadows. This is the Sun’s ruling house. Friends, social interactions, opportunities to shine or stand out may feature and these will prove to be your best outlets now while you wait for Venus to head direct again and gain back traction. Showcase yourself, your talents and all you have to offer. The spotlight is on you now and all you have to offer. Hopefully you have a greater appreciation of what that is and as we head off into February, expect to make up for retrograde lost time.

Values are often linked to our passion and what we love as well as who. Simply what we will and won’t ‘sell out’ over at any cost. The deal breakers which we all deep down have. The 30th sees Jupiter planet of solutions and opportunity meet with Eros, crazy cupid with the bow and arrow. In your 6th of work, wellness and everyday magic. Take aim now at those New Year priorities, Libra. Maybe these are around a better work/life balance? Ensuring you spend an equal amount of time pursuing what you love to do as well as what you need to do? Putting healthy choices first? Be they around your habits, work, studies, lifestyle or even the environment you spend your time in? Maybe that arrow is aimed at that side hustle or being your own boss? Examine how this links to those values, aim higher and further, and follow in that direction on into February.

In a nutshell: What you are passionate about is linked to your value system, Libra. It’s important to stand by these this month. Romance may still be on hold but there’s so many other ways to experience and express the love as ‘22 begins to rock your world!
