I follow the Vedic calendar; this is the monthly solar horoscope for birthdays from 16th October to 15th November or Libra Ascendants and Moons
|By Louise Gilbert|
Libra, your mind has been working overtime racing from one thought, idea and possibility to the next – some of the realisations had a profound effect on you and the way you view the world. Saturn crossing your Ascendant still wants you to get rid of old baggage and appreciate who valuable the lessons you’ve learnt over the past two or so years have been. What’s happening this month is that you can finally start implementing some of what will be part of your ‘new’ life moving forward and make it an integral part of your daily life. While this still won’t happen over night and daily routines as well as what’s going on in your mind might still hold you back, you have a lot of drive and energy this month.
Mars is at the top of your chart, pouring a lot of energy into the area of your chart to do with life direction and career. This part of your life may have been somewhat dissatisfying and would have come under the spotlight and under review over the past few months too. Now, you can at least initiate some of the changes you had envisaged. In particular if your Ascendant is in Libra, it may be your partner or simply other people that can help you build your career and steer you in the right direction. As you’re busy building your career or working on changing your paths, your workload may be fierce and somewhat challenging for the time being, costing you a lot of energy as you’re climbing the ladder or getting your own business off the ground. But in any case, it should be a successful month for career and for the first two weeks, profits and bonuses are also well-starred.
If you are single, then romance cold blossom at the work place this month.
As the month goes on, your levels of ‘busy-ness’ are on the rise. Your vitality is high and you’ll be rushing around with a new-found enthusiasm for life that, hopefully, not even Saturn in your sign can dampen. You’re the centre of attention this month – or at least you feel that way – and as your intuition is being fine-tuned too, it’s time for some positive visualisation and affirmation. Just in time for next month’s lunar eclipse in your opposite sign.
The new Moon on 5th September in Leo takes place in your house of hopes, gains and wishes and will help you with your manifestations. This new Moon falls into the nakshatra of Purvaphalguni, the 11th of 27 'wives of the Moon' and one of three that is ruled by the planet Venus. This is a creative nakshatra which broadly speaking brings skills in arts and a love of pleasure. The deity for this star is Bhaga, the God of Prosperity. For you, it’s a time to focus is on making contacts and reaching out to others in both a social and professional sense. This period kick-starts a very social time with new contacts and people coming your way – in all likelihood connected to your work.
The full Moon on 19th September is in the sign of Pisces and your house of health, fitness and daily routines. You’ve had your share of ups and downs in this area and this month, you’ll finally decide to change your eating habits or a treatment programme you’ve been undergoing for the past 18 months is showing some results. This could also be a culmination of a work project that’s cost you your last nerve and which has seen many starts and stops along the way.
Have a great month, Libra!
