August 2014 horoscope - Libra

I follow the Vedic calendar; this is the monthly solar horoscope for birthdays from 16th October to 15th November or Libra Ascendants and Moons

Libra, a lot is moving for you this month. The two areas in your chart which are traditionally associated with the cardinal signs – therefore progress, forward movement, decision making, results-oriented behavior and tangible outcomes – are heavily aspected this month. These areas are your first house and your own sign of Libra as well as your tenth house of career, profession, vocation, status and life direction. The two areas are packed with planets so there are numerous possible outcomes. For one, after having Saturn in your sign for so many months, you are just now emerging as a new person with new boundaries and expectations. This has an impact on your relationships too and with Mars in your sign, many are setting the record straight with a partner or, if you are single, you may now decide to get back out there and put yourself on the market. The drive and the desire is certainly there. The only thing that might keep from paying full attention to relationships now is your career or your purpose in life. People in authority take up a good deal of your attention now and again – with Saturn still in your sign – some of you may have recently decided that a change in career has to be top of the agenda. So those Libras that feel a change has to happen are busy concentrating on that. There is a lot of communication around work, jobs, projects, promotions and bonuses happening now and you are very well placed to make the best of the opportunities that are presented to you these days. Jupiter is at the top of you chart, in just this area, helping you bring new stimuli and appeal to your career and life path. It almost feels as though you are at the top of you game these days – still not without its challenges but you should start seeing some of fruits of your hard labour at work and in your personal life. 
The full Moon on 10th August in Capricorn is a time of completion around a certain project – perhaps a home project. The focus is on your living environment, you inner life, your mother and your past, your early schooling and what you do and who you are behind closed doors. While the emphasis is very much still on work, it might have an impact on where you live which in turn has an impact on your ‘status’…somehow. Again, with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, part of the mix, you may feel quite proud of your achievements, perhaps more optimistic than you have done in a long time and willing or able to gather your inner strength. You are very ‘visible’ at the moment and for that – perhaps for a new challenge at work – you’ll need all the inner strength go you can muster. Ideally, during this time, you’ll not only find a renewed sense of optimism and grounding but you’ll invite some friends for a BBQ and have a nice time with your family.
Still, cast your thoughts back to what happened or what you wished for in November and February 2013 – now, this particular situation is being closed off, you’re done with it and you can move on. Saturn, the ruler of you emotional and home life is moving direct again so whatever was stuck, it’s moving to the next level now and you should be getting closer and closer to what you had hoped to initiate or progress in your life last year around these times last year.
This full Moon is in the nakshatra of Uttara Ashada, ruled by the Sun. Under this nakshatra, we are calm in the eye of the storm, we are able to detach ourselves and therefore maintain a sense of independence that ensures we don’t let things get to us. Full Moons can always feel a little intense – Mars is squaring the full Moon, putting us in danger or overacting (again, sigh!!). Luckily enough that this nakshatra is a dignified one and although the stellium in Cancer can make us a little needy, the emotional side seems to be more grounded.
Ahead of the first eclipse in September following the move into the Pisces / Virgo axis, Rahu / the North node now opposes Uranus in Pisces. Eclipses alone introduce big changes but with Uranus, the planet of sudden change involved in this particular eclipse cycle, events over the coming weeks and months could be indeed life changing. Be prepared for the unpredictable, life can now take an unexpected turn and you discover where you truly belong. Generally speaking, this could involve meeting new groups of people, an exciting new relationship, a change of career or developing a new interest. It could also involve metaphysics, science, environmental interests or technology. It’s a breakthrough time for sure and in your case, it’s something less tangible – it’s a feeling, an intuition, an insight and a foresight, a sudden inspiration and even the longing to travel and be abroad for a while. Some Libras, over the next 18 months might decide to quite the rat race and move to a place that’s more tranquil and soothing. If health reasons play a part, take the plunge. 
By the time the new Moon in Leo comes around on 24th August, it’s all about money, contracts and profits. Seems as though whatever discussions you are having at and around work is literally paying off! Have a great month, Libra!

Annual and monthly horoscopes are very general so get in touch if you are interested in an individual chart reading. In readings, I use the Indian Dasha system in individual forecasts which is known for its accuracy. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Google +, see you there!
