The twelve signs of the Zodiac represent twelve different characters, sort of like roles in a play. They can be described as archetypes, models into which human personality traits tend to group. Plato had theories about mental ideas - or forms - that were imprinted in the human mind before birth.
August certainly packed a punch and I’m sure left many of us reeling. Between Mercury retrograde and the Eclipses, a lot of information was thrown at us. This month, we get the chance to breathe and make sense of it all. The atmosphere in general during this time of year is of getting ready. Autumn begins this month and “winter is coming” (forgive me George R.R. Martin). Now we harvest what we started in Aries and analytical, discerning Virgo is here to help with that task.
On September 22nd, the Autumn Equinox, the Sun begins its month-long journey through Libra, the Scales. Libra a cardinal air sign is ruled by Venus and assigned to the Justice card of the tarot. Libra is the sign of balance and under the influence of Libra we seek harmony between the aspects of our life that are inharmonious. Just as we cross the midway point of the seasonal year at this time, we also cross the midpoint of the Zodiac, which begins in the spring with Aries.
From September 9th until October of next year, Jupiter will be in the air sign of Libra. In your Natal Chart, Jupiter represents career, good fortune and prosperity as well as wisdom and dignity. It shows you where you need to grow. It shows your interests in the higher values of life and how you share those interests with others. The energies of Jupiter challenge us to expand in the physical, the intellect, the emotional but most important the spiritual. Libra is the sign of partnership, ruled by the planet Venus and symbolized by the Scales. Ever gracious, fair and balanced, Libra is an Air sign and among the most social and popular of the zodiac. Those born under this sign always have the right thing to say and know how to make others feel comfortable. Where Libra is in your chart is the area in life where you strive for balance and equilibrium.
