At the inner point of light, where all is balanced in stillness, yet manifest
in nature is Libra's challenge to equalilize the scales. Libra is the point
in the zodiacal sphere where one realizes the polarity of the universe. Its
path is the balance or reconciliation of the pairs of opposites within us,
and without in our lives. Libra is an air sign and forms a grand trine with
Gemini and Aquarius. All are intellectual signs communicating within their
triangle of space, Gemini gathers information, Libra socializes and counsels,
weighing the positive and negative, while Aquarius transmits the information
throughout the consciousness of humankind and the universe.
Libra enters the zodiac sphere around September 22 or 23rd and leaves October 22. It marks the point of the fall equinox, and the balancing of the 4 seasons. In addition, this intelligence is a cardinal sign, which marks the change of the seasons, is dynamic in nature, and because it is an air sign, it likes to socialize and relate to others. Venus, the planet of love and beauty is Libra's planetary ruler. Venus is also the planetary ruler of Taurus, and this sign relates to love and beauty, artistic talents, possessions and values. Because these two signs are 150° apart, forming an inconjunct aspect, there is tension created that requires an adjustment between these signs, most likely involving the value of possessions in Taurus versus human relationships in Libra. A little self-analysis will show you where you are in terms of this aspect.
The zodiacal wheel is separated into 12 houses. Libra is the 7th house and is located at the 3 o'clock position on your astrology chart. When looking at each sign we also take note of the opposite sign, or opposite polarity, which in this case is Aries, and is located at the 9 o'clock position. Aries is about the self, while Libra relates to others These two points are very important as they are located on the 'Angles' of the chart, moreover, any planets that are located here will have a very strong influence. In addition, the Aries point is where the ascendant or rising sign is located, and the Libra point is where your partner, companion, marriage point, and business associates are located. These two polarities are the roots where your relationships with the self and others are positioned. In addition, if there are planets, or the moons' nodes in either of these two houses, your challenge is to resolve the inner conflict of relationships in reference of whom you are from within, which will express itself in your outer life. This is the polarity of Yin and Yang, positive and negative, the light and the dark, east and west, the sun and the moon, selfish desire versus spiritual harmony, and so forth. Libra's or those with a strong Libra presence in their chart, such as ascendant, moon, or a stellium need to experience relationships in order to grow. The intelligence of Libra is partnership and the experience with others, it is a very social planet as is Gemini and Aquarius, and all are in the same grouping of air. Often one with this position finds themselves in bliss or crisis, depending on the aspects to other planets and positions. The crisis can be numerous relationships, which have failed, or a codependent nature, that causes one to stay in relationships that are unhealthy for far too long. It is interesting to note here that Libra likes harmony and has the tendency to be too accommodating to others, while Aries can be more self centered and prone to power and control, therefore setting up the dynamic of polarization between the two, thus co-dependency. Instead of breaking away from a turbulent relationship, there is fear and belief in the consciousness that says I cannot make it on my own, how can I live without this other person. The conflict may be gradually resolved by establishing boundaries, focus, and determination to stand in one's own truth with self-confidence and restructured core beliefs. Not an easy task, but at some level we are all here to do this work, as humankind is about relationships, whether it is personal, business, financial, environmental, cultural, social or political.
When relating with others we are triggered by our biological and environmental
blueprints (the astrology chart & our family). We tend to blame the other
person, but what is really happening is their issues are triggering your experiences
or value systems, which became imprinted upon your consciousness. Sometimes
the programming we received from our parents and other caregivers was positive
and sometimes not. Our work is to recognize that it is usually not 'about'
the other person but some innate charteristic or set of values and beliefs
within ourselves. Something or someone can 'trigger' these old emotional wounds
and beliefs. As we become adults we learn to take responsibility for the choices
we have made in certain relationships, careers and other situations that have
not been in our best interests. As we begin to see the errors of our past,
we can start to grow and change, and begin to understand ourselves. The first
relationship we need to develop is the one within ourselves, following; we
can then experience others in a loving relationship.
[v]Libra's keywords are harmony, relationships, nicely,
choices, balance, and fairness. Venus is the ruling planet, which we know
as love and beauty. Librans have a very easygoing nature and attitude, are
dignified, gracious, refined and attractive. Their innate beauty is obviousness.
They are cheerful, optimistic, and make wonderful partners and friends. However,
they can frustrate others as they have difficulty making choices, therefore
decision-making can be a long drawn out process. They see all sides of the
issue, weighing the possibilities, and often will not make a decision, letting
the universe make it for them. They can be gullible and easily influenced
saying yes to other's suggestions and then wondering a moment later what made
them agree! It is best for them to try to trust and form their own opinions,
as they can become dependant on a stronger personality to make their choices.
Otherwise, they can have a tendency to be somewhat submissive, giving their
power away to someone else, which results in the corrosion of self-esteem.
Because Libra is an intellectual air sign, they spend much time is their mind,
judging what is right or wrong. They intensely dislike arguing, discord, and
disagreements; however, it would be better for them to express themselves
in some way. Otherwise, resentments gradually form which can result in the
opposite polarity of Aries being ignited causing an unexpected explosion.
When angry or resentful they become passive aggressive or elusive, not wanting
to express their anger for fear of disharmony.
One of the reasons they have a difficult time with discord is the emotional turmoil is often too much for them. They would be wise to search inside themselves for the emotions they would rather bury; for losing control is not an appropriate behavior for Libras. However, accessing these emotions, by feeling, rather than thinking, would facilitate an inner healing and the release of unwanted memories and traumas held in the cells of the body. On the other hand, Libra's need to express themselves and communicate what is 'fair', and 'right', keeps them in balance. It is important for them to experience harmonious relationships, where there is give and take with equality. They detest vulgarity, and require a partner who is somewhat dignified and possesses good social skills and grace. Libra's are very charming, gracious, usually have wonderful taste in clothing, home interiors, and are drawn to the more luxurious items. They are romantic, refined, make wonderful and gracious hosts or hostesses, and are very diplomatic when working with others. The sign Libra and/or the 7th house rules law and justice, thus many lawyers and legal experts are from this planetary energy. In addition, those with the Sun or Saturn on the 7th house make wonderful counselors or therapists. Furthermore, career choices may include teachers of communication, computers, court reporter, interpreter, welfare workers, the beauty trades, fashion design, millinery, and artistic trades including music. Libra's have many friends, are involved in groups, have a good sense of vision for the future, work well with children and can make their dreams come true. Moreover, Librans prefer to work in partnerships and if opening their known business it is best for them to work with another.
All zodiacal signs have certain character traits, positive and negative as
well as psychological, psychiatric, and medical disorders.
As a well-balanced Libra, you will be free from most negative traits. If you notice similarity to any disorder, you need not be alarmed or ashamed. It is always a wise decision to contact a professional to help you work through any inconsistencies in your life. When unbalanced, the inner conflicts may be as follows:
[vi] (a) The Dependant Personality Disorder is a pattern
of submissive clinging behavior related to an excessive need to be taken care
[vii] (b) Other sub disorders are most likely Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder, Self-Defeating Personality Disorder, Depressive, and Mood Disorders.
(c) The imprinting of 'Learned Helplessness, 'and 'Co-Dependency.'
[viii][ix]The sign of Libra was once
called Chelae and was part of the Scorpion Claws, which held a light. The
. man has left the underworld and now has the light
of wisdom to reason and make choices.
The scales of Justice are symbolic of the customs of Ancient Egypt and can be found in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The God Anubis brought the dead from the underworld to the Hall of Justice where the soul would be weighed and judged. Osiris, the God of life and death judged the soul. The Goddess Maat is symbolized by a feather, the Feather of Truth. She weighs the feather on the scales, then the heart, if the scales balance, the soul will have eternal life. If there is an imbalance of heart and feather, the monster Amemait devours the heart.
I have always been interested and drawn to the Book of Daniel in the Bible,
and amazingly came across the biblical interpretation of this custom. In Daniel
5.25, the scripture says, "Number, number, weight, divisions. And this
is what it means: number, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought
it to an end;( meaning death) weight, you have been weighed on the scales
and found to be too light; (the scales of justice, and the heart was too light)
divisions, your kingdom has been Divided up and given to the Medes and Persians."
(the heart was eaten by Amemait)
Once again, we can see how scripture veils the hidden mysteries of life and death. In addition, the Greek Goddess Athena was also the symbol for justice and harmony.
Further passages in the Bible referring to the constellation of Libra are:
Bootes- the coming one, the one who rules, Ps 96:13 - he cometh to judge the earth; Enoch 7&8
Libra- the scales, weighing and purchase, Isa 53:10 - a sin offering (balance of lack)
Job 31: 6: 'Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know my integrity.'
Good means what has struck a balance between the internal and the external.
In Jewish thought, souls that had reached the balance were safe from the negative
energy of the universe. Knowledge or higher wisdom weighs in the balance.
This meaning comes out in 5 Ecclesiastics (16: 24- ): 'My son, hearkens unto
me, and learn knowledge... 1 will shew forth doctrine in weight, and declare
his knowledge exactly.' Strict control is as strong an element of scholarship
as it is in the weighing of souls or of metals.
[ix]Libra contains three bright stars whose names supply
us with the whole matter. The brightest (in the lower scale), is named Zuben
al Genubi, which means the purchase, or price which is deficient. This points
to the fact that man has been ruined. He is "weighed in the balances
and found wanting."
"None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
Nor give to God a ransom for him;
For the redemption of their soul is costly,
And must be let alone
Surely, men of a low degree are vanity
And men of high degree a lie;
In balances they go up;
They are altogether lighter than vanity
Ps. 42:9 RV
This is the verdict pronounced and recorded by this star Zuben al Genubi.
John 8:15, 16
Ye judge after the flesh: I judge no man-and yet if a judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me
Luke 6:37, 38
Judge not and ye shall not be judged. Condemn not and ye shall not be condemned.
Forgive and ye shall for be forgiven; for with the same measure you judge, it shall be measure to you again.
Forgiveness is the key. However, we all know that it can be difficult. When we do forgive, we have so much more energy for ourselves; conversely, when our resentments are controlling us they use our energy every time we think of them. It' like spending money. How much energy do you want to spend on someone else who is probably not aware of your vengeance? Just something to think about.

The following Sabian Symbols are the first and last degree of Libra:
LIBRA 13 THE SPAN OF EXPECTATION
181 (1°) PIERCED BY A DART OF LIGHT A BUTTERFLY IS "MADE PERFECT"
The symbolical death that is initiation into spiritual reality and wisdom.
Sudden awakening. Craving for inner light.
___*When positive, the degree is man's awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus of character, and when negative, the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.
A PHRENOLOGIST DISCOVERS MOUNDS OF KNOWLEDGE ON A HEAD Ability to read spiritual meanings in concrete objects. Objectification
of abstract truths. Cleverness in understanding.
___*When positive, the degree is a perfected integrity of self and an exceptional gift for furthering all progress, and
when negative, a fatuous pride in mere intellect.
Madelaine Johnson has written a wonderful description of the Arcturians and their purpose, you can find more information at the website called Arcturus Rising. You will find more about Arcturus in the Virgo Constellation on my website.
[xi]"In terms of astrology Arcturus was said by the
ancients to bring honor and good fortune, however when rising this would be
accompanied by cares and anxieties caused through one's own folly. The 'sleeping
prophet' Edgar Cayce spoke of him as 'that centre from which there may be
an entrance into other realms of consciousness' whilst the astrologer Stephen
Arroyo says he is 'an important dimension in relation to spiritual growth
and heightened consciousness.' The twenty-third degree of each of the Cardinal
signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn is said to be a healing degree
and in 'The Astrology of Personality' Dane Rudhyar gives the following Sabian
Symbol for the 24th degree (in the Sabian system the minutes are always rounded
upwards to the next whole degree): 'A Butterfly spreads its wings, showing
an extra left one' whose meaning he interprets as 'Potentiality of new forms
and opportunities in every life. Instinctive expansion of self; or submergence
in the not-self.' The Butterfly is a potent symbol of the journey of the soul
through its changing stages of consciousness from the egg to the caterpillar,
to the chrysalis to the released state of the Butterfly. All these meanings
speak of a gateway into other realms of consciousness, of a journey towards
a re-birth and wholeness and the Bearkeeper then becomes the Gatekeeper. 'The
One who Cometh', the 'One who will Rule'
" In the theory of 'star seeding' we must not forget also that the Arcturus star system is one of those that is said to have 'seeded' our present human race, and whose emissaries are meant to be returning (or even have returned) to this planet to help us on our evolutionary walk at this crucial time. José Argûelles has written, or 'received' a strange and yet compelling book 'The Arcturus Probe' in which we all appear to be a Galactic experiment of re-population by a guiding higher intelligence from the Arcturus system. Well who knows - read it and decide for yourself . You can find Arcturus by following the three stars that form the tail of the Great Bear constellation in a great arc (now there's a 'coincidence') or curve, across the sky, and there he is in unmistakable golden yellow glory - colors befitting a King."
If you have a connection to Arcturus the following degrees will be in either your Tropical (Western, Sun Sign Astrology) or Sidereal ( Eastern - Fixed Stars, Constellations) astrology chart.
The Sabian Symbols for Arcturus are:

For those who are called the Indigo Children, Crystal Children, Walk-In's
and the sensitives, we must pay our respect with an open mind. There are far
too many of humankind who are receiving 'messages' from extra-terrestrial
intelligences for this phenomenon to be a hoax. In reference to Arcturus,
they are known as the pathfinders, helping other's to find a better way to
live. They, among other intelligences are asking our assistance in an intervention
to save our planet and our race. Are you aware and awake to answer the call?
An added note on ET communication: there are certain steps one must remember
to take when opening yourself up the universal energies. Please
to speak your intention to allow the highest pure Divine energy for your highest
good, the good of the planet and humankind to come through and give guidance.
When not sure, say, "I demand that all other energy leave my space right
now, never to return. You may also include and ask them to surrender to the
Divine Light of Love and Peace."
The Tarot and Kabbalah are mystical systems of symbology, most likely established as language. My favorite books describing these systems are Numerology and the Divine Triangle (Javane & Bunker), Archetypes on the Tree of Life (M. Compton), and The Tarot (Case) According to the above-mentioned book on numerology; number 11 is the key for Justice and represents the Libra scales. 11 is a master number and gives the potential for connecting with the universe for inspiration and the possibility of advanced initiations of the soul. It is possible to reach a state of cosmic consciousness and /or enlightenment with this key. The tests and lessons of this key are to examine the meaning of your present situations and take appropriate action to correct the misjudgments of the past. The art of discrimination is the magical essence of this key, to weigh the past errors and achieve balance by correct action. You could say this energy is what one uses to travel on the path of an inner search, "know thyself and thy composition". The sign Libra rules this key and the 7th house in the astrology chart, relationships with others, and love. It is through the correct use of the life force and the will of your higher self where Divine Justice can and will create perfect equilibrium in and through you. Thus, the symbol of the Libra Scales.
It is interesting to note when Libra rises or is connected to the ascendant,
it rules the pancreas and spleen in the body. These organs of assimilation,
regulation, and elimination maintain the proper chemical balance in the body.
It is through the elimination of toxins in both our body and our life, which
leads to a balanced life.
Those with this placement will often have a sweet tooth or use sugar as a substitute for love, therefore overworking the pancreas, which in turn creates a low energy, and a need for more rest than usual. In addition, this attraction to sweets seem to lay in the personality trait of needing to be nice, polite, accommodating, and gracious. If Libra is on the 6th house cusp, than Taurus is on the ascendant. This sign rules the throat , larynx, neck, jaw and at a more sensitive level, the throat charka .This is the creative centre where we express who we are, therefore any blockages here will can create our inability to speak our truth or express our individual creatively. Consequently, this will cause repetitive health problems, such as sore throats, laryngitis, and inflammation of the lymph nodes in this area. In addition, those with a strong Taurus on the ascendant or other placement need to use their voice . For singing, chanting, public speaking, toning, or other sound therapies. To clear blockages in this area, imagine a ball of blue iridescent liquid light entering through the top of your head, and allow it to settle in the throat charka and Thymus Gland (located on the sternum) . Then breath in this blue light and imagine it penetrating through all the cells to the DNA level at your core. Take in more blue light, hold your breath for 4 counts and out slowly for 4 counts, Say to yourself, I am now releasing any blockages, imprints or any belief programs that do not serve my highest good. Repeat this mantra: " I am present and healed right now". Continue this mantra throughout the day. You will notice a change in your ability to communicate more freely as well as an improvement in your health. I realize to some, this type of treatment may seem 'out there', but I ask you to open your mind to all possibilities, and try this method for at least two weeks. Nameste.(which means, I salute the Divine Spark in you and me)
We are becoming more conscious of environmental issues , however, there is still a large gap in knowledge available, and actual action, which needs to be taken. We are becoming more conscious of environmental issues , however, there is still a large gap in knowledge available, and actual action, which needs to be taken. Libra is the is the sign that asks us to look at the situation on our planet, and make adjustments in our life styles so we may create a balanced environment. Following is a list of several issues we can become aware of and make changes in our life styles to accommodate the change needed to help mother earth. Otherwise, we will create a crisis with the possibility of extinction of many life forms.

[xiii] While the ecosystem and Mother Nature has the
intelligence to correct or heal itself, the limitations on the damage it can
sustain are quickly approaching. It is of upmost importance that humankind
begins to recognize the seriousness of these issues and start taking personal
responsibility for the environment.

This month we experience two eclipses
Solar Eclipse October 13 Lunar Eclipse October 27th
As we enter the month of Libra let us remember the vastness of this universe we live in, and the occurrence of polar opposites in creation. For instance our sun sheds its light, and the moon casts a shadow. Take for instance the phenomena of eclipses, either the sun or moon casts its shadow on the other.[xiv] For example, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the Sun totally or partially from the Earths view. In contrast, a lunar eclipse occurs when at a full moon when the sun and the moon are opposite each other and at the same zodiacal degree. The earth moves between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow upon the Moon and conceals it from earths view. Eclipses also occur in series and cycles, called Saros series. In addition, eclipses hold a pattern of consciousness that presents itself as an opportunity for healing the past; either personally, or globally. Its almost like the sun and moon decide to have a clearing of their relationship with each other. This is finding a balance in Libra. For example, have you ever seen a couple where one person is an introvert and the other an extrovert, or one is a feeling person and the other a thinker? The balance comes from within the relationship where a compromise is established as one moves toward the other to find the balance point. You could say that the sun represents our consciousness mind and the moon represents our subconscious. In order to be in integrity these two aspects of the human psyche need to be in harmony, the inner world is expressed in the outer world. Therefore, when eclipses present themselves it is a good time for us to get clear and define our relationship with ourselves, others, and the universe. This polar opposite theme, positive and negative, ying, and yang, runs through our universe as fundamental building blocks. . As we know, the human psyche has its own shadow, as well as its light and kindness of spirit. Everything has its own part to play within a common pattern; the moon helps reveal the hidden depths of the pattern, the sun shines its light to purify and reveal the truth.
October 13th New Moon at 7.48pm PDT
Solar Eclipse at 21°.06 Libra at 8.00 am PDT
New moons are the time to reflect on your goals are for the next month. Write down on paper what you want to create; focus and commit to the action of your ideal, and you will magnetize to you all you need to fulfill your goals. Its like magic. The results of your focus will show up on next full moon.
This event is a large partial eclipse occurring in western Alaska at sunset, just south of Anchorage near Kenai. Almost 93% of the Sun will be eclipsed. It is also interesting to note this eclipse will cross over the eclipse path of May 1993 which occurred during the Uranus/Neptune conjunction. At the same time, a set of Quintiles, angles which are 72° apart, are in the sky in a formation similar to the Harmonic concordance of November 8th last year. Quintiles are believed to be the gifts or talents that you just cannot stop doing. On the negative side this can create compulsions, obsessions, or addictions. However, this energy can turn in the opposite direction and be transformed into a positive energy, thus creating a talent that can be used for your highest good.
At the same time of the quintiles, there are also 2 five star pentagrams which occur on October 1st and October 27-28th (day of the lunar eclipse) For those open to spiritual energies, this is a time where access to other dimensions are possible. I believe the quintiles are like portholes, wormholes or black holes, doorways where you choose to enter is guided by your choices. For further information on this subject please go to www.HarmonicConcordance.com/newsite/AstrologicalMusings--Quintiles.htm.

October 28th Full Moon in Taurus at 8.07pm PDT, (the Lunar Eclipse is at 5° Scorpio) shows us Globally where our planet is in consciousness. What have we, as global citizens created for our planet? Is it positive, or negative? How can we change to bring more peace and unity in the world? These are questions we all need to ask ourselves. What can we do individually to help humankind evolve in a positive way? Taurus is related to values, money, talents we possess, beauty and most importantly Love; ask yourself where your values are on these issues. The lunar eclipse picks up the energy of 5 ° Scorpio, an energy seeking to transform itself through recycling, spiritual, or physical death, and is related to issues of other peoples money.. banks, taxes, insurance What are your issues today? and global issues today? Are you willing to take action in some way to help create a better world?
At an individual level what have you created in your world on full Moon? Whatever shows up is what you have been focused on, remember thoughts are energy and whatever you put out into the ethers will boomerang back to you. You are co-creating your world through the mind of God, or the Unified field. Therefore, focus on what is the highest good for you and the planet, and then create your dreams.

October 24th Neptune goes direct at 4.56am PDT during the retrograde period we have a chance to go back and rethink, re-do, re-focus, re-whatever and create a better outcome. It is a time when past opportunities can show up in your life again. It is also a good time to see a past life therapist or create your own meditations to take you there. It can be a time of the re-appearance of medical or psychological problems and a time of quiet solitude. When a planet goes direct, these past opportunities are completed for now, and it is time to move forward with whatever choices you have made. When Neptune goes retrograde again you have another chance to make adjustments. Remember the law of polarities its your choice the light or the dark. The positive or the challenges.!

Your astrological chart is a psychological map of your personality; more specifically - your genetic coding. Your environment has also been an influence or perhpas has deepened your innate patterns.
We can change these by listening to our own intuition and surrendering to our higher self. Healing can take place through Grace ... the essence of unconditional love.
My most basic belief is "Listen to the inner voice".
