As you know, the symbol for Libra is a pair of scales, because the core essence of Libran energy is that of balance. The Sun enters Libra on the September equinox each year, when day and night are of equal length and there is a balance between the two. So when you have a month when everything is balanced, it will speak to your core needs and for you, that is more precious than wild opportunities or expansive and exciting developments. For a Libran, balance is everything and that is what you have this month. One area where balance is not only possible but is being policed is work/life balance, especially when it comes to a balance between your home and professional lives. January is always an important month for home and family matters and starting the month with six planets here, even more so than is normally the case. Yet while you have a lunar eclipse on 10th/11th January in your career sector and this will clash with all six planets in your home and family sector, this will reveal any work/life balance issues. For this really is a good month across the income, work and career fronts and especially once Venus returns to your work sector on 14th January. Yet even here a need for balance has guardrails, with all but three days this month hosting planetary activity in a playful part of your chart. The only time there won't be planetary activity here is between Venus' departure on 14th January and Mercury's return on 17th January. In the meantime, even the ongoing quest for balance between your personal and relationship needs gets a boost this month, with Mars' return to your communication sector on 3rd January. While your own needs are being supported, Mars will return to support your relationships and to ensure the communication lines are open.
Week beginning Monday 20th of January 2020
Sometimes when you have a lot of diversity or a lot of different areas of your chart all becoming active at the same time, apart from making life a lot more interesting, it can create competition or conflict. When that happens, different areas of your life are competing with each other and there can be stress. This is not the case this week and if anything, there is harmony. You will see this in a surge in activity on the communication front, just as relationship matters are starting to run more smoothly. At the same time, while Venus' return to your work sector is having a positive impact across the income, work and career fronts, this does not mean that life is about to become all work and no play. Not only are the forces on all three fronts playing a long game, with Mercury in his first full week in a playful part of your chart and the Sun returning on Tuesday, this will create a natural balance. A New Moon here over the weekend will be a chance to embrace the weekend spirit.
Thursday 23rd of January 2020
Last week saw five of the six planets in your home and family sector align, including Saturn and Pluto's first alignment anywhere in four decades and here, on the home front in our lifetime. Yet possibly even more important than last week's once in a lifetime alignment is an alignment here today between the Moon and Jupiter, something that happens every four weeks. Jupiter was the only planet not involved in last week's multi planet alignment, yet as the planet of luck and expansion he holds the key to all of this year's possibilities.
