Happy Birthday Libra

In my downtime (now, there’s a joke) I’m re-watching a series on itunes that personally I don’t think had enough seasons…but then me and the programming or commissioning departments of major TV stations have rarely seen eye to eye. The show is Fairly Legal, and the lead character is Kate Reed, a mediator.

Kate is beautiful and can somehow run around San Francisco in teetering heels (who can do that in real life?). She likes balance, and she likes the middle ground. She brings people together, allows them each to have their say, and then helps each see the other’s view to reach an agreement where (usually) both sides walk away having felt as though they’ve won – unless they’ve treated someone unfairly, in which case they’ll lose. She fights for the underdog and she seeks justice for all. Her favourite term is win-win. She gets her own way with a wide, engaging smile and a flick of her fabulous hair. What Kate can’t do is put herself first, or work out what or who she wants.

When Ben Grogan (one of the two men she’s deciding between) tells her that the case she’s working on doesn’t require a mediator, it requires a decision, she almost hyperventilates. Of course the whole episode is a metaphor for the decision she has to make between Ben and her ex-husband and Assistant DA Justin.

My point? Libra…Kate is pure Libra…and the Sun is moving into Libra tomorrow. If you want to know more about Libra, it just so happens that I’ve prepared something…much earlier. You’ll find it here.

Doing it for yourself…

We all have Libra somewhere in our chart. It’s in this part of life that we’re looking for peace, balance, harmony and collaboration.

Check out where Libra is in your chart – that’s where you’re getting the warmth of the Sun’s energy right now. Why not use it to do a health check on the balance in this part of your life? Are you valuing your own contributions enough? Do you need to ask for help? It’s the perfect time to seek the partnership or input of others in this part of your life – just be sure not to allow their opinions and needs to eclipse yours.

Libra is 8th house for me and my first Libra task is to get the taxes ready for the accountant. Libra time is also when I look closely at our money and budget – the resources of our relationship – and see whether we’re spending more than we should in any single part of life. What follows is usually my own negotiation and mediation!
