Mars the planet of energy (both physical and mental energy) is now retrograde in your sign, which can have you feeling quite fatigued and possibly absentminded sometimes. It’s important that you try to relax! Don’t allow your mind to stimulate your imagination with ideas and visions that aren’t positive ones. If you start to think about something that upsets you then it’s up to you to change your thoughts! It’s only natural that when people feel overly tired and cranky that they can also feel anxious and overly upset about the smallest things. Try not to make a mountain out of a molehill in order to get attention from people. Be honest with yourself about what is going on around you. Try to rise above any challenges that you may be facing in order to continue to be productive. If you need to take an extra nap, or two, then give yourself permission to do that! Mars will be in retrograde motion until May 19th and it’s during this phase of time that you are learning that you need to release your judgments about other people. Now that your ruling planet Venus is in your fellow air sign of Aquarius you can receive the help you need if you can communicate, in a positive way, what it is that you desire. Of course your thoughts need to be rational, but if you find that they are not then this may be the perfect time for you to seek some counseling. Having a strong faith in a higher power, in life itself and in the energy of the cosmos can help relieve you of your sadness and doubts when you need it the most. Focus on what is most important to you Tuesday through Friday morning and then plan to relax and take it easy over the course of the weekend. The Full Moon in the healing sign of Virgo can help relieve you of your subconscious fears; by first revealing to you why you feel this way and what you need most to overcome them. Are your fears rational? Most fears are not. Could it be that your imagination is just running away with you and you need to quiet it down? The Moon will move into your sign on Sunday evening at 8:46 pm EDT. It’s very possible that your emotions will rise to the surface so that you can review them, release them, heal past them and then realize that you are perfectly fine just as you are. You don’t need to dwell over what was any longer when your future can be so much brighter!
Libra's weekly horoscopes
Are you staying creatively busy, doing things that you enjoy doing? If so then you’re on the right track, a very healthy track indeed, that can help you to avoid thinking of frustrating things that will only frustrate you more. It’s so much better to be productive by creating something handmade that you can enjoy, then to sit around and dwell on the people and situations that you can’t do anything about any way. Being the beautiful Libra you are, you are learning to have more balance in your life. Whenever you feel like judging a person, or situation, you’ll only throw your own sense of personal balance out of whack. Acceptance is important for you. Yes, it’s hard to accept certain situations and how certain people think and act, when you know that you would handle the situations differently…and you most certainly wouldn’t think or act like those people do. But that’s what makes you a very special person Libra. Focus more positively on your own life Libra. Create the changes that you desire to see in the world by first creating the changes in your own life. Then you’ll be in the perfect position to set a good example, for others, with your own life. With the Sun in Pisces now your main focus should be on your daily duties and your personal health. Taking good care of yourself - mentally/emotionally/physically - in the best ways that you know how IS your top priority. Beautiful Venus, your ruling planet, has been in the karmic sign of Capricorn for quite some time. Thus you are creating your own good or bad karma depending on what thoughts you choose to think, what you choose to do most often, and through the words that you speak to yourself and to others. Avoid gossip! This is very important! You don’t want to attract into your life the very same situations that others may be gossiping about. On Wednesday, 3/5, Venus moves into Aquarius! This energy should help you greatly, especially if you can surround yourself with positive people who enjoy talking about the positive side of life instead of the negative. Continue to be as creative as you can be. Make those delicious cookies, surround yourself with some good friends and chat about some good times while staying warm with some hot cocoa or yummy tea. Good times are ahead for you Libra. With Mercury back in direct motion and Venus also in the sign of Aquarius…creativity, children, love affairs and some delicious fun are all highlighted for you!
If you love to cook then you should do more of that! If you love to create crafts then you should do more of that! The main thing is to find something that you really enjoy doing and keep yourself as creatively busy as you can. When you do this then you won’t have time to fret over the small stuff. You’ll be constructing something that is much more important! Mercury turn direct on Friday in the sign of Aquarius. Connections with friends and some new social invitations will be coming your way. You may desire a new love affair to happen in your life, but before you do please make sure that you feel healthy enough to enjoy it. With energy from the Sun, Neptune, Chiron and the New Moon on Saturday all in the sign of Pisces…it’s at this time of year that your focus should be on taking better care of your daily duties and your personal health. Because Mercury was retrograde (and will still be from Monday through Friday at 9:00 am EST) you may have felt more mentally drained than anything else. What have you been thinking about that was of a negative nature? Are your thoughts based on reality, or more on a fictional story line that you’ve been thinking about to yourself? Once Mercury goes back into direct motion your mind should become clearer and what you thought was so important before, what you dwelled upon, can be deleted (if you desire). All of those thoughts about the past, and past relationships, and what the people in your life haven’t done right for you…can be replaced by a renewed sense of hope that situations can become better for you in the near future. Again, stay busy doing what you love to do because then your mind won’t have time to dwell upon what’s been upsetting you.
If you could have done just one thing differently in your past, what would that have been? If you could do just one thing differently now, what would that be? The energies this week are asking you to ‘lighten UP’ and try to see your life as a personal adventure. Do you desire your adventure to be filled with stress and strife, or do you desire an adventure filled with love, romance and happiness? With energy from the energetic planet Mars in your sign, YOU are the one who is totally in charge of your own life! The only problem, at all, with Mars in your sign is that YOU have to ‘choose’ how to exert your energy - towards feeling angry OR feeling happy, healthy and just fine! How will you choose to use the energy of Mars? On Monday the Moon will be in your sign, where it will remain until late on Wednesday evening (EST time). Focusing on yourself and how you choose to live your life IS an important theme during this phase of time. Thursday through Saturday morning give yourself credit for all of your personal talents and how you earn your income. The more credit you give to yourself for the beautiful person you are, the more you will desire to share your unique energy with others. This weekend is excellent for fun types of communication. In fact the word FUN should be written on your calendar, or wear it on a T-shirt, to remind yourself that when you are in a fun-loving mood then you can abundantly attract wonderful situations into your life!
Your ruling planet Venus, in the sign of Capricorn, asks you to lovingly focus on your home and family matters because they truly are your foundation. If the foundation of your life is strong and supportive then you can build your life upwards from there with few problems. Mercury is in retrograde motion, in the sign of Pisces, asking you to reorganize the way that you take care of your daily tasks, your career, and your personal health. If you do what you love and love what you do then you can feel very healthy and happier too! Mercury moves back into the sign of Aquarius on Wednesday, 2/12, where it will remain until 2/28. During this phase of time you may find that past relationships, and memories regarding these relationships, pop back up to the surface of your life. How will you handle them this time? Be careful that you don’t repeat past karmic lessons. For those of you with children there may be some repair of your relationship with them. Healing can take place when you choose to spend quality time with them. The sign of Aquarius is known for its cold and logical energy. Do you feel that you will enjoy your children, and your lovers, once they grow up? If so then you’re going to be disappointed because so much important time is going to pass. Why wait to enjoy the important people in your life? They may be different from you, yes this is true, but you need some enjoyment in your life…don’t you? The Full Moon energy on Friday is a time to celebrate your life, and the lives of those who are closest to you. You may have a strong desire to go out and socialize! The more others pay attention to you, whether you know these people or not doesn’t matter, the happier you’ll feel! An inner need to be recognized is what will motivate you. You can have fun! You can dance the night away, but at the end of the night you’ll have to say good-bye and go your own merry way - unless, of course, you bump into someone from your past then you need to ask yourself IF you want to repeat a lesson from your past. Be smart, be wise, and realize that the way that you take care of yourself NOW will determine how you’re future will become. You may feel tempted Wednesday afternoon through early on Saturday morning, but once the Moon moves into Virgo (2/15 2:26 am EST) some logic should set in. Emotionally you’ll become more distant. You’ll desire to analyze your choices better, because now you realize that for every action there is a reaction thus you’ll want to make sure that your actions are positive ones!
The Sun in Aquarius is stimulating you to have some creative fun these days! The ruling planet for the sign of Aquarius, Uranus, is moving through the area of your life that has to do with your most personal relationships. The question to ask yourself is, “Am I having FUN with these people…or not?!” You might find them to be a bit eccentric, erotic or just a bit unusual, but the important thing is that you are enjoying your time with these people. If you are then they are true friends indeed! If you are not then you will probably desire to meet some new people; which can easily happen for you over the next few weeks. Mercury is going into retrograde motion on Thursday and will remain in retrograde motion until February 28th. During this phase of time you are being asked to re-evaluate how, and why, you do your daily duties and realize that the way you do these things can either enhance or deplete your mental, emotional and physical health. If you like what you are doing then you should feel just fine. If you don’t like what you do, and how you live your life, then you may easily feel under the weather until you begin to do things differently. What you really need is to have more healthy and positive fun in your life with groups of people that you enjoy being around. The energetic influence of the people around you can either bring your own energy UP or bring it way down. You are the one who can make the choice about who you desire to share your time with. By having a good attitude and choosing to be around creative and happy people can make a world of difference about how you feel about yourself. The people you choose to be around can have more of an influence over you than you may have realized before. Now that your ruling planet Venus is back in direct motion it is important for your own well being, and good luck, that you choose to be around people who you feel have your best interest in their hearts.
If the people around you are acting like bulls in a china shop, and their energy seems to be getting on your nerves a lot, then this is the perfect week for you to plan on spending more quality time by yourself before their energy makes you more upset. What are the personal fun hobbies that you like to do? You are a very creative soul and you can easily create something beautiful! Maybe you’d like to read a good book, or watch a good movie without your phone ringing off of the hook and someone ‘out there’ trying to get a hold of you. There’s only so much you can take, especially when their dramas seem to be invading into your life. Your desire to have fun is strong, this is true, but when other people’s idea of fun isn’t the same as yours then you have a right to say no and go do what ‘you’ want to do. The New Moon energy on Thursday afternoon will help you by bringing new social opportunities into your life very soon. On Friday both the Moon and Mercury will move into the caring and healing sign of Pisces, which can help you to release your tension and enjoy your life this weekend.
The waning Moon moves into your sign early on Tuesday morning, and remains in your sign until Thursday afternoon at 4:43 pm EST. You may find yourself to be a bit more emotionally depressed over situations that have happened to you in the past. Your ruling planet Venus is still in retrograde motion, in the karmic sign of Capricorn, until the afternoon of January 31st. During this phase of time it’s only natural for you to be thinking about situations, especially relationships situations, from your past. Be careful of rekindling old flames, because you could possibly be setting yourself up for repeating emotional lessons all over again. Bringing closure to past relationships, in a positive way, is the right thing to do under these astrological conditions. Those of you in committed relationships may find yourself distancing yourself, maybe a bit too much, from someone close to you that really does appreciate you. This too is only natural, because you need some time to figure out how you feel deep down inside. Those who truly love you will continue to do so. Try to give them the attention and appreciation that you know they deserve. Try to be a bit more conservative with your money until your ruling planet Venus goes back into direct motion again on January 31st. Mars, in your sign, may have you desiring to go on a shopping spree in order to feel better about yourself. It would be wiser for you to use your extra energy towards getting important things accomplished. You really can accomplish many wonderful things while Mars is in your sign! The worst thing you can do is get angry at all those around you. They won’t care if you are angry, thus this feeling of anger will only turn inward on yourself leading you towards feeling even more depressed. Use your extra energy wisely. This is an excellent time to take up a sport, a physical hobby, or at least take a brisk walk, get some exercise, so that you can vent your energy in a productive way.
You don’t have to allow the energy from the upcoming Full Moon to make you feel looney. You can use this luminous energy to feel grateful for the beauty in your life! This may seem a bit challenging once the Moon moves into the sign of Cancer on Monday evening - and grows ever brighter until it reaches its Full Moon point of time on Wednesday night at 11:52 pm EST. The challenge for you is not to allow yourself to feel overwhelmed by all that you wish could have, or should have, happened for you in the past. Focus on the NOW moments of your life. The past is over, that karma is over, and you know that you can’t do anything about it. Start in the NOW moment of your life to focus on everything that IS going right. Place your attention towards creating more wonderful NOW moments for your life, instead of dwelling too far into the future. It’s the NOW moments that you can either perceive as joyful, or as miserable, because it’s always your choice. What will you choose? How will you choose to perceive your life? Try to do things one step at a time, one moment at a time, and make the most out of the current choices that you are creating and making. “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” You expect a lot out of yourself and those around you. If you can learn to laugh at the frustrations you feel, you will be a lot happier with yourself and everyone will feel a lot better being around you. Your most emotionally difficult time may not even be when this Full Moon takes place; it may be over the weekend and well into next next Monday. Realize that your emotional well being and physical health is very important. The more that you can learn to love yourself, and take good care of yourself, the happier you will become.
Your ruling planet Venus is in retrograde motion until January 31st, so it’s best if you keep your primary focus on your home and family matters. This can be a bit challenging, and at times you may want to escape these situations, but you can transform any issues you have there in a positive way. From the 7th through the 11th it’s possible that there may be many miscommunications, or some very high expectations that you may have (or someone has for you) within your family unit. Try not to take anything that is said too personally (if possible) and allow this time to pass. Try to listen more and try not to argue back so that you don’t say something that you might regret later. With so many energies flowing through the home and family area of your life (Sun, Mercury, Venus in retrograde motion and Pluto) this is the area of your life that needs the most transformation. If you live alone you may want to transform your environment. When dealing with family members there’s a need for more balance, more compassion, more compromise. Mars in your sign can make you very hot-headed indeed if someone pushes your emotional buttons or gets in your way when you’re trying to accomplish something. Take a deep breath! Count to 10! You can do something with this extra energy that makes you feel good about yourself again. It’s important that you keep yourself moving in a positive and productive direction.
