Libra (Air): Beauty, equality, egalitarianism, cooperation. We grow more friendly, relationship oriented, and incensed by injustice.
We're called to to empower our beloveds and work towards social justice, beauty and dynamic peace.
The mood is romantic, sociable, fair-minded; we need to add direction.

2020 eclipses in Sagittarius trigger new honesty, and this honesty encourages us to restructure the systems of power while Saturn and Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. By the end of 2020, Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius and empower us to integrate an authentically collaborative philosophy.
Take the pressure off family tensions this year. You have a natural inner gauge around social justice, so bring your eyes and tactful approach to the problem.
You know that inspiring information delivered without a strong personal torque, facts rather than opinion, open more minds. Lovingly help those around you become more aware of the vestiges of racism, internalized gender issues, and encourage sisterhood.

Balance, wholeness, weave connection. Cardinal Air Libra asks us to balance our relationships so they bring us joy.
You were born to find the beauty way, the path of balanced alliance with the earth and all our relations. Learn to love in a mutually empowering, non-co-dependent way, develop practicality, and trust your gut decisions.
Those born under a Libra Moon are kind, friendly and were trained from birth to be peacemakers in the family. They are willing to fight for justice theoretically, but would rather get along with people close to home.
They can see all sides, but may need to learn to know their own mind and stand in their truth.
Let's be fair. It's time to weave relationship between healthy equals, to see another's perspective and balance opposing needs. The Libra Moon encourages sweetness, beauty, gentle comfort, and the peace of social justice.

Libra marks the start of the fall season. The glyph represents the scales traditionally, the only inanimate glyph object, though it can also be seen as the setting sun.

The start of fall brings the final harvest. The leaves are changing color and the landscape itself seems to adorn itself in rich colors. We find ourselves living in abundance. Our gardens are rich with squash, grains, and vegetables. We share these often with our communities. Relationships are built and we gravitate towards others during this season as the air grows crisp.
Libra rules the Sunset. Much like the colors of Fall the sunset mirrors the same seasonal adornments of nature. Bright reds, pinks and yellows fill the sky this time of day. Darkness peaks in through the corners of our vision. Libra is often known for being showy and fashionable, and the cloak of sunset is a chance for this sign to really shine!
The Kidneys mirror the scales in our body, balancing on either side of our spine. These organs filter blood and help balance the fluids within our body.
The appendix also helps regulate our bodily systems. It stores bacteria and can give our digestive system a reboot when needed. The Vasomotor system monitors our blood dilation. All these organs above have a job of balancing our body and regulating our systems.
And lastly, where we be without our hips, buttocks and lower lumbar? Probably overtly unbalanced and tipping over!

The planets within our solar system have a specific part to play in the complete knowledge of "The Self." Planets represent different aspects of our self-journey or even our personality.
They're characteristics range from our soul purpose (sun), how we think or love (Mercury, Venus) how we like to learn (Jupiter) our limitations (Saturn), and much more! Please visit our blog "Journey into Astrology" if you would like to know more about Planets and how to integrate them into your daily astrology practice.
Planets in Libra love to balance and calibrate to their purposes. They want to succeed almost to the point of perfection in those areas of their life. Planets in Libra are meant to be shared with others. They often gravitate towards relationships and crave community.
Be warned though, the Libra's strive for perfection can often cause an unrealistic set of expectations.
“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
The Seventh House is opposite from the First, and balancing relationships with others is highlighted. We have honed our best selves through the first six houses. Now we are ready to join in partnership, and polish the art of collaboration.

Venus is often referred to as the planet of love and beauty. Venus also co-rules Taurus, though is represented differently through each sign.
In Libra, Venus is truly at home surrounded by beautiful things, lots of relationships and many different forms of love. They love to listen and even more to be listened too.
Venus is our recognition of love, art and beauty. Venus is harmony in its expressed form, as well as compassion, bliss and acceptance.

What does 2020 have in store for you, Sagittarius?
Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec.21) Wander. Under Mutable Fire Sagittarius, we want to expand our horizons, travel in the mind, body or spirit, to commune with strangers and with the natural world.
you are worthy, dear sagittarius, not because of the work you do, or the people you help, or your potent intuition. you are worthy simply because you are.
What does 2020 hold for you, Mysterious Scorpio?
Fixed water Scorpio calls us to look within and face our fears, look under the rocks and find root causes. The mood is curious, mysterious, magical, sexual, introspective, and profound: we need to add faith, trust and humor.
saturn and pluto have been working with you for years to take responsibility for your words and thoughts. as above, so below. as within, so without.
Virgo: The grounding, motherly earth sign. Often represented as the Plant Kingdom.
She fosters organization, activism, mothering and family. Mercurial, curious, critical and engaged. The mood sharpens our minds and nerves, and sends us back to work.
What does 2020 have in store for you, dear Virgo?
