An Open Letter To Libra For January 2021
I hope you are staying safe and keeping well. I know this isn't the best of times, but we have just got to knuckle-down and get on with life. Libra is one of the most sociable signs of the zodiac. You are also one of the most well-balanced and agreeable. There is something so different, so superior, about Libra. For a start most Libra born ooze charm and charisma. Whether you know it or not, people are attracted by your kind words and good heart. You have a way of making them feel “at home” in your company. Even people you've just met. That makes you talented beyond measure, because you have the power to lift your friends and acquaintances out of there blue-moods. You are gifted with the power to bestow “magic-moments” that transmute sad days into glad days. I admire you for that. Yes indeed, you are unique. You have a beautiful soul.
Times are hard for everyone, but some Libra are hurting more than others. When you are sad it's comforting to remember the Law of the Tao which — in essence — mandates that nothing in the universe remains the same forever. Everything is ultimately related to everything else but nothing is permanent. Consequently, your sadness will ultimately change into happiness; your grief into joy. That's the Law of the Tao. So with that comforting thought in mind let's turn our attention to your future.
The Sun in Capricorn conjunction Mercury in Capricorn (4th House) indicates, among other things, that you are in a more serious frame of mind and searching for answers to some long harboured concerns. It's not so much you are depressed it's just a nagging feeling that some solution is just within your grasp but still in some way illudes you. For many Libra it might be something to do with your domestic situation: home and hearth kind of things. For many more it might be to do with your Mother; wife; sister or girlfriends. While older Libra may focus their attention to more basic, fundamental concerns. Perhaps you want to insulate your children from some consequences of your own situation. You might be finding that little tasks once done with ease may be becoming hard to do or even impossible. You feel like you want to plan ahead to do what's best for them and what's also best for yourself. Kind of juggling the books trying to find the right balance of responsibilities.
Does it ring a bell in some way if I suggest that you have lived alone with only your happy memories for company? Your situation may be about to change because someone new might enter into your life. You may even feel a little guilty for loving again, and I sympathize with you. I can understand your situation but — equally — you (and other family members) must accept that life moves on. Solitude can be so destructive to happiness. No man/woman is an island and in many circumstances it is right and proper to love again. It's hard for you because you want everybody to be happy. I'm sure you are being very responsible and will come up with the appropriate solutions but don't get yourself obsessed with things: step back from your problems and remember to have a little fun every now and again. “All work and no play!” You know the old saying!!
Meanwhile, other Libra will be coming to terms with developing situations related to transport and communications. Are you having problems getting the kids to school? Some usual “tools” for doing the job may not be available. However, either you (if you are currently involved in further education) will be performing better than you expected. Indeed, I suspect you will attain some kind of distinction in literary or scholastic pursuits. You may even get involved in journalism or broadcasting in some way.
All things considered your ability to cope with detail will be enhanced and ultimately you'll triumph over adversity and come out on top. Moreover, there is some good for brothers and sisters who are going to adaption to changing circumstances in a most successful and lucrative way. That's something else you don't have to worry about.
The Sun is in Capricorn (4th House) trine Uranus in Taurus (8th House). Consequently, I deduce that you might feel like spreading your wings and making your mark on the big wide world. A starting point may be joining groups and society which reflect your interests. You get a kick out of meeting new people who share your common goals. Have you ever fancied yourself as an integral part of a large business? Astrologically, there are signs this could be the right time to sow the seeds of a new venture. In short: this might be the right time to open a new chapter in your life.
Many of you might be conscious of a growing inner tension. You might become sick and tired of the same old routine. Everyone has the right to change their minds. For too long you have been conscious of a need (obligation) to tailor your opinions to fit in with others. Perhaps it's time to stop that. Keep your opinion or old world outlook and make new friends. That might be better for everyone.
Venus Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces energies combine to stimulate your sensitive side. Consequently, your desire for peace and harmony asserts itself and some Libra might actively devote their time to some good cause. As a knock-on effect your popularity goes through the roof, and you have the opportunity to start a new romance if that's what you really want. Your aspiration for higher things brings many open doors in its wake. Your enjoyment and participation in life blooms, and you begin to count your blessings once again. Indeed, one or two of you might have the birth of a daughter to celebrate. Nothing in astrology is black or white. Therefore, I must caution some of my readers that a “square” aspect has potentially negative implications. For example a minority of Libra might find it advisable to apply a little wholesome self-discipline if a scandal is to be avoided.
Mars in Aries square Saturn in Aquarius stimulates your ambition and staying power. This is probably why your determination might become focus on essentials, and you veer away from some long held goals. As a way to refocus yourself you might through yourself which involves gardening or doing some groundwork which forms the foundation of a larger project.
You might be in no mood to suffer the interference of some foolish individuals who try to impose their will upon you. Nevertheless, it will be in your own best interests to avoid intolerant or aggressive behaviour. Turn the other cheek and pursue your own interests otherwise strained relationships with older people, or, crossed words with the boss might spoil things for you. Better still stand up for the rights of others. That way you will gain new friends and influence people without jeopardize something you hold very dear to your heart.
Jupiter in Aquarius square Uranus Taurus might fan the flames and reignite your desire for independence. Uranus is the planet associated with bright ideas and getting your own way. Additionally, this is a potentially auspicious period for students or inventing things (or excuses). However, your enthusiasm might be short-lived so think twice before you lash out a lot of money on a new project or person in your life.
Venus and Mars energies combine in a delightful and potentially helpful alliance to help those Libra experiencing difficulties in very personal areas of their intimate relationships. Think clever and resolve to work together to solve your problems and do everything in your power to replace conflict with compassion and understanding. In other more public areas of your life you will benefit immensely if you go out of your way to make peace with former adversaries.
This week might mark a milestone in the life of your brother who will have to adapt his life to meet the joyful challenges of parenthood. A few single Libra may have to make speedy changes to their game plan following the intervention of a rival in a blossoming romance. Keep your cool, especially if you are a little inebriated, or you may be obliged to spend some time in the company of officers of the law.
Venus smiles her blessings on all things to do with beautifying your home. You may feel impelled to buy some luxury items or works of art which strike a rapport with your own heightened sensibilities. Furthermore, some Libra may consider selling works of art they create at home. This may prove a very lucrative avenue to pursue. Indeed, it could change your life in more ways than one, for your artistic endeavours may attract the attention of admirers and do wonders for your self-confidence and love life. Not only that, but you will feel it in your heart to bestow more kindness, affection and forgiveness upon undeserving family members who have — to put it frankly — been taking the wee-wee for far too long!
Mercury spikes your interest in some family rumours or gossip. The chance to contribute your “twopence worth” is too powerful to resist. Consequently, you grab some attention on Facebook and cause a stir. There may also be an increased preoccupation with housework or kitchen hygiene as a response to changing circumstance.
You must exercise your skills of diplomacy if some bickering over money is to be avoided. This inter-personal conflict may be confined to a warring siblings who all adamantly claim to be making a disproportionate contribution to the family finances or doing all the tidying up (“my bedroom's better than yours!”). It's all just a storm in a tea cup, but the volume always seems to peak when your favourite programs are on the TV.
For a brief period faulty technology may isolate you from the rest of the world. So, as a wise precaution, keep checking your phone's charge or upgrade to a more inclusive plan. Affairs of the heart might go very well for the majority of Libra. Indeed, a new romance may blossom thanks — in a round about way — to the cloud. You might be a thousand miles away from your soulmate but in the privacy of your own room miles don't matter at all, because there's only the two of you on your own personal love island!!
