22 Jul 2018 VENUS SEXTILE JUPITER (12th House to 2nd House)

22 Jul 2018 SUN ENTERING LEO (11th House)

What’s the hurry this week?

Adjust your setting to ‘Receive’

Reach for a higher love

Take your time when it comes to romance or financial decisions this week, Libra. Ruler Venus heightens your creativity in your 12th but can also have you weaving unrealistic fantasies if you are not careful. You’ll want to reach for a higher love with Venus in here and the problem is you can project these qualities on to someone who to put it bluntly, just doesn’t measure up. Yes, they have the potential but they may not be able to live up to what you see in them. Tread carefully. That being said, something you were owed from the past or a missed opportunity especially around your money could come winging its way back to you thanks to Jupiter in Venus’s ruling 2nd. If there is something you have felt you literally ‘lost out’ on, then the scales could be re-balanced for you this week. It all boils down to the fact your blessings have your name on them – and sooner or later they catch up with you.

Embrace some community spirit this week as the Sun enters your social sector. This is all about your people, your group, your tribe and also about how you as an individual sit within this. Is it a comfy fit? Expect increased social and networking opportunities. Accept all invitations and get out and about. Now is the time to do something about your social life if it has been lackluster lately. Just be aware of the fact that this is your house of Receptivity. How is your ability to receive anything from good times to goals being made manifest? Look into a new social scene or new ways of doing things. This week marks the start of you receiving whatever it is you need – not what you want (big difference!). Keep an open mind as to what this is and prepare to be surprised.

Wait for results

It’s yesterday once more

Love goes on replay

Chiron is a recent arrival in your 7th having entered here in April. The beginning of July sees it station at 2 degrees of Aries and then begin a retrograde cycle which will end in December and see the dwarf planet of muses, music and healing head back into your 6th again.  It will return to your 7th in the third week of February 2019. If music be the food of love – play on. We are in major retrograde weather now. Jupiter in your money house heads direct again this month from the 10th. However, we will see Mercury make one of its regular retrogrades in your 11th from the 26th. If we add Chiron into the mix, next month sees the retrograde cycle peak with a total of seven planetary bodies all heading backwards at once. We are all asked to look back to evolve and leap forward again once this cycle ends. Be warned however that just as it will be clearing up for other signs in October when we will see only two planets – Uranus and Neptune, along with Chiron remaining retrograde, Venus your ruler will make one of its rare backwards sashays across the sky which will end just as the next Mercury retrograde cycle starts in November. So, you may have a longer time to process those past themes than other signs as this period extends on past your birthday season this year.

With ruler Venus presently in forward motion in your 12th and with the Sun’s entry into your 11th occuring just before Mercury moves retrograde, people from your past, past goals and places from your past are going to feature this month. As are those wounds from the past too. Especially around love and partnerships. What’s your clue to moving past them? Music and creativity. Venus in your 12th opens up channels to higher love and inspiration. Hurts, wounds and sadness can be transformed by listening to music, dancing out to it or in the form of a creative project. Use any pain and above all, don’t run from it. Your past can be re-told and re-imagined to change your future. Before the Sun reaches your 11th however, you are benefitting from some fabulous alignments it makes from your 10th of career right across your entire money and work sectors. Closing that deal or setting off on that new career tangent is a distinct possibility but the news of this may take a while longer to reach you. The reason I am saying this is not only due to that retrograde weather – although it has a bearing. The new Moon in your 10th is usually all about a new direction, dazzling people with your smarts and getting recognition for what you do. It’s one of those times in the year where we get to shine at what we do. And reap the rewards along with that. However, the new Moon in here this year which appears on the 13th triggers a solar eclipse. And by now you should know eclipses conceal. The Sun will also oppose Pluto in your 4th of home and security and trine Neptune in your 6th of work at the same time. So, you may end up doing what you can and then playing the waiting game. Be patient if this happens and tell yourself if there are delays there is a reason which you may not know now, but discover later as the eclipse shadow moves off.

If you are left waiting for news relating to career matters, shift your focus to your social life when the Sun crosses on into your 11th from the 22nd. Those people from the past could be past friends or co-workers or you could find yourself back in some old haunts now and reviving the good times you enjoyed there in the past. Time to revive past connections if they have been on your mind recently. Reach out and back. You may find they have new resonance for you. Some of you may find old friends making contact with you. Be in the moment and when you are, let go of waiting or worrying about outcomes. Know you have done all you can and it is now out of your hands. Remember that no matter which house of our charts Mercury turns retrograde in, that the usual retrograde rules apply. And as this retrograde occurs in your social sector, it’s probably a good idea to re-confirm all arrangements or bookings before setting out. And allow extra time to get there too.

As we approach the end of the month we are going to see a total eclipse of the full Moon take place in your 5th of romance, creativity, fun and pleasure. Retrograde Mars is also in this house in your chart now and the Sun will oppose this. Some of you may run into an old lover, perhaps rekindling the fire again. If so, please take things slowly with them. It’s that eclipse rule of something being hidden or concealed by it. Second time around love doesn’t mean you have to dive straight back in you know. You can insist on being ‘courted’ or wooed once more to give yourself (and them) time to see if it really can work this time around.

What you have been waiting for or what was covered up by the first eclipse may begin to appear by the month’s end when Venus makes a security-enhancing angle of change to Pluto in your 4th. There’s a feeling here of something you set in motion now coming full circle and finding you ready to receive it. The spheres may be in backwards motion this month, but that doesn’t meant what you want won’t get delivered. It will just arrive in its own good time.

In a nutshell: People from your past – friends and even lovers, could reappear now. Old haunts and connections offer the opportunity to create new memories. Play it again, this month Libra.

annual horoscope

Libra 2018 

Your love life is under the spotlight for most of 2018. Quirky Uranus has been given you quite the rollercoaster ride over the past seven years. 2018 Kicks off with Uranus turning direct in your house of love. Have you had shocks, surprises or revelations connected to an ex? If so things are calming down after the 2nd.

Having said that you are still keen to make radical decisions to find peace and harmony in your close relationships. Venus, your ruler, is joining forces with game changer Pluto in your home and family zone. If you’ve been waiting for an energy shift, Pluto could deliver. Be proactive and think about what you can do to give it a helping hand. The Sun is also conjunct Pluto on the same day giving you the confidence to say what you need and want from home and family.

2018 could be a spectacular year to invest or transform property, look out for an idea on the 16th when Jupiter the planet of good fortune in your money and security zone sextiles Pluto. With Saturn as your houseguest in your 4th, you are laying the foundations for something that truly sustains you. Home, family and your roots as well as your past will either be cemented or re-defined by you. There’s an element of putting the past in perspective here. Of looking to what truly sustains you and of establishing your priorities. You may move or buy property at this time. See Jupiter as your banker and Saturn handing you the keys. This is all about creating a future and thinking in the long term. You’re bringing a new maturity to this and also a new perspective. You make your own rules and perhaps, if you have long term issues around family, then to heal these. This may involve re-writing the rules about what family is to you. You can live on your own terms now and again, these are keys to your future.

February brings you the ability to bring about a deep healing as Venus conjuncts Neptune on the 21st.  This allows you to move into a space of self-love and forgiveness. 2018 is an empowering year for you. Through being compassionate with yourself, there comes a magical shift in your love life. There could be cosmic and karmic link and soul contracts operating here. Venus enters Aries and your 7th house of love on the 6th March further enhancing the cosmic magic. Chances are your higher self has been sending you messages through dreams, insights  and just ‘gut’ feelings before all this transpires. You may have an intuitive sense someone is going to appear – and then they do. Tap into your inner knowing now.

Jupiter goes retro from the 9th March bringing in a possible return of potential from the past. Take meetings and hook up with past contacts who might prove more influential than you think. Where you in love with a project or had a lofty dream you let go of? Now is the chance to reboot, revamp and upcycle it. For best results be consistent. Nothing pays off like persistence. It’s time to dedicate yourself to a dream – and see it through.

The major news of 2018 is Uranus which moves from your relationship zone to your house of primal power. Uranus in the 8th house is going to make the next few years incredibly interesting.. Expect profound experiences and close encounters this year. Sex, money, life, death, rebirth and intense experiences. Uranus is waking up the depths of your soul; anything buried now  rises from the ashes. The Universe is asking you to examine your relationship to power and powerlessness and all your raw emotions and subconscious desires. Remember, all the parts of ourselves we fear, we disown – these ‘shadow’ elements are in fact where our power resides. Uranus in here can have us looking at these very differently and integrating them. We can reach own for new solutions, new ways of framing experiences and in fact see that our fears have no power over us – unless we choose to give it to them. 

On the 7th August Uranus will take you on a magical mystery tour into your past as Uranus seeks to surprise you with old patterns and tunnels of enlightenment. If there’s anything you have chosen not to deal with obsessions, sexual issues or losses from yesteryear Uranus will lend a helping hand. At first it might appear overwhelming but Uranus is intent on showing you your true power. Step out into a radical new dynamic now.  

Unlike Mercury, Venus your ruler rarely goes retrograde. So when she does on Oct 6 and in her ruling house in your chart (2nd), this is your cue to pause for serious thought. During the retrograde period she will move back into your sign and while she is moving backwards, Jupiter will shift out of your 2nd and on in to your 3rd. Is there an opportunity you have missed? You are being asked to look again or to be given a second chance opportunity. This is one of those rare cycles that can bring back something you missed –or return something that was always intended for you. Grab it when it reappears. 

Jupiter in your 3rd sees a yearlong focus on writing, communication, commerce, the internet, study, travel or just you discovering how far one idea can take you. Actually a very long way indeed. If you have a book, script, blog, website, business  or idea you need to share with the world, now is the time to do it. Jupiter will remain in your 3rd until December 2019 and remember, he is also in his ruling sign. This makes him extra expansive, optimistic and adventurous. It’s a time to dare to reach for that dream and Jupiter gives you the confidence to do that, while Uranus plugs you into the power of trying something new, innovative and maybe a little bit radical. The results could just be powerful magic with which to build the cornerstone for your future, Libra. Make 2018 the year of making the many opportunities around you realities.
