Libra is and air sign depicted by the Scales - Libra tries to seek balance but often it swings wildly. Libra is very concerned with the other person - not self and it's biggest shadow is co-dependence. Libra also deploys her planet Venus to help us create things of beauty.
Right now we have the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Juno, Saturn and the Moon all hanging out together having a good old time in Libra. In a nut shell, this means we are looking for something to attach to, something or someone to join. Of course, if in the 7th house, the house ruled by Libra - this could be a wild time of people looking to resolve issues, please the other people in their life, forge new alliances. However, this is also a harbinger of a time of great creative expression - someone with well aspected Libra in their chart could find themselves finishing that scrapbook, working on that painting again or even finally cleaning up the bedroom and hanging the pictures!
The eighth house is a bit more tricky - this is the house of death and rebirth, it is also the house of insurance and goods of the dead. Feeling the need to literally shed old skin and do some heavy internal work - figure out where we are going - what we are doing with ourselves; these are all in the eighth house arena. This is a time of intense soul searching to say the least.
If this were all loopy enough those retrogrades that I spoke of last week have now crept up to first house - our house of personal expression. So on one hand we have this need to deal with this huge issues, what do I believe in, who should I commit to and on the other our personal energy and power are being dragged down by the retrogrades. How Libran! One side up - the other side down.
My suggestion - think about this big issue items but don't try to act on them until the retros get moving out of 1 - better yet wait until they go away completely in the early New Year. Think, ponder, delve - then act in January!
