Body ruling: Lower Back
September 23 - October 22
Libra, how crazy the world would be without your diplomacy. You see both sides of every argument and know people cannot be distilled into good or evil.
You help us understand the grey area in life and inspire us to make peace with our internal polarities, Libra.
But this year wants you to turn that focus inward. Pluto, god of the underworld, has been long at work in your fourth house of roots, family history and the past. He has held a mirror up to your childhood. And he has asked you to become conscious of how the past and its conditioning haunts you to this day. And with this new awareness, Saturn, the great teacher, wants you to become your own loving parent this year. He wants you to set boundaries, create healthy expectations and approach your family with a renewed sense of loyalty to yourself. But this year wants you to go even deeper into your inner world. What unconscious behaviours, patterns and dynamics would you like to understand this year? What relationships from the past are in need of clarity on your path towards healing?
This work is raw and tender so be gentle with yourself this year. Luckily Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, will shine her light down on the parts of the past that brought you joy. Reconnect with old friends and the activities that brought you happiness in childhood, and begin to integrate them into the person you are today. Since Uranus, the planet of change, will be in your eighth house of intimacy, revelations about your past will influence how you share your life with others. If you have a history of giving more than you receive, Uranus will make sure you ask for more. If you have a history of unavailable partners who mimic wounds of your childhood, Uranus will force you to choose differently.
Understanding who you are through the lens of where you came from is the work of a lifetime, Libra. But with awareness, you’ll see that the pain of the past is no prediction of your future.
In order delve deep into the self, create a space in which to do so. Subtle Bodies incense holder is just what a lover of pretty things needs.
