Sun in Libra ~ September 22 to October 23, 2009

Photo/Source UnknownRelationships are illuminated as the Sun enters Libra on September 22 at 5:18 p.m., where he will remain until October 23. The Sun represents our external drive, our potential, our conscious will. In Virgo, the Sun is somewhat shy, cautious, and conservative. While in Libra, the Sun is social, accommodating, and fair-minded.

At best, Libra is charming, diplomatic, and easygoing. At worst, Libra is indecisive, self-indulgent, and gullible. The Sun in Libra encourages harmony between the individual self and the shared self -- who is the self within a relationship?

While in Libra, we are urged to find the balance between remaining true to who we are even in a relationship, practice objectivity, and be reminded that we are creatures who are built to connect with others. Libra is governed by the planet of love, Venus, who currently transits through the nit-picky sign of Virgo, where relationships are scrutinized and measured by Virgo's discriminating ideals.

On the day the Sun enters Libra, the Sun and Pluto fight it out, resulting in confrontations, hidden truths coming to light, and hardships/intensity leading to breakthroughs/endings. With the Moon in Sagittarius on this day, wisdom resides in our emotional core to help guide us in making wise decisions/actions. In addition to the Sun-Pluto conflict, Mercury (thinking/communicating) blends energies with Saturn (reality/restrictions) in Virgo (practical/meticulous). Our obligations/limitations weigh heavily on our minds. We're now called upon to be accountable for the recent decisions we've made, actions we've taken. Hopefully, we have avoided any recent life-altering decisions, especially with Mercury in retrograde (an ideal time for reflection & review but not necessarily action). Mercury remains retrograde until September 29, with the shadow period ending on October 14.

While the Sun is in Libra, he will make alignments with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • October 4 ~ Full Moon in Aries at 2:10 a.m. Eastern. (October 3 at 11:10 p.m. Pacific)
  • October 10 ~ Sun trine Jupiter. Let the good times roll! Optimism. General well-being. Be aware and open to opportunities, especially from unexpected places or people. The only thing to worry about is excessiveness.
  • October 14 ~ Sun trine Chiron. Opportunity for fixing what's broken with the self or to help another/others heal.
  • October 16 ~ Sun quincunx Uranus and trine Neptune. Expect the unexpected. Careful to avoid impulsive acts/decisions. Overoptimism easy now.
  • October 18 ~ New Moon in Libra at 1:32 a.m. Eastern.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
