May 23rd-May 29th, 2017
Most of us are probably behaving rather selfishly right now. Harmonious Venus challenged in headstrong Aries, warrior Mars motivating the independent spirit of Gemini and Pluto sitting at the head of the table demanding its rights for power and respect –preaching seemingly indisputable ‘truths’. Saturn under Sagittarius is in here too insisting it has exclusive handle on what is and isn’t morally correct. I guess we’ll figure out soon enough where this kind of attitude will take us. Wherever we end up we will have accumulated a stack of lessons learned.
Pluto’s press on Venus may disturb your delicately balanced equilibrium Libra. It’s a power struggle that shifts the ground every time you think it’s possible to reach out and shake hands, make a real connection. Then again, you might not even want to attempt sticking your hand out. On top of that Mars’ opposition to Saturn on the 29th (which can probably be felt throughout the week) can compound your frustration. What can I tell you other than it seems the only semi-effective way to communicate will be by choosing words that pack as much meaning in shortest sentences possible. The problem with that is you might have so much more to say than can be squeezed in small space. It isn’t ‘that simple’ to you and that sentiment will probably be the point you most desperately want to get across first.
The New Moon in fellow air sign Gemini feels for you Libra. That is, over these next few weeks don’t worry if you can’t fully get your message across. There will be plenty of activity (and conversation) in your world to distract your heart from becoming unnecessarily tied up into knots. In fact, these so called distractions offer views of your situation from a different angle. While you will likely gain more from listening, it might be tough, at first, to keep your own words from spilling out and dominating the conversation. Needless to say that could land you right back where you started – where those listening to you only have the patience for the short and sweet of it.
