Happy Birthday Libra

September 22, 2020 Author Debra DeLeo-Moolenaar

Libra needs to find balance in her relationships, a challenge she shares with her opposite zodiac sign, Aries. But whilst the emphasis for Aries is on ‘me’, the emphasis for Libra is on ‘we’ and when Libra gives her power away like this, she gets herself into wicked trouble. 

It’s not so much that Libra doesn’t care about herself but instead that she’s often unaware of what it is that she truly wants. Ask Aries what he wants, and he’ll tell you. Ask Libra what she wants, and she’ll respond by asking you what you want instead. For Libra, such compromise is all too easy and over time, it unwittingly becomes her default.

But in reality, no one can be all things to all people and there is nothing wrong in taking care of oneself. The upshot of this is that if Libra wants to improve her relationships, she needs to be a bit more selfish.

This is unlikely to be easy, at least it isn’t easy for Libra. But it might help her to consider that at the heart of each and every one of her relationships is first and foremost, her connection to herself.  Self-care can be daunting, especially when others are used to manipulating you by labelling you as egoistic. But it’s not so hard if you start small and work up. 

Begin by announcing to yourself and the world at large that self-care is defined more broadly than just physical health. Next, do yourself a favour and remove the word ‘should’ from your vocabulary. The reality is that you will never keep your focus on yourself when you’re always worried about the judgement of others. Finally, give yourself a break. Stop being your hardiest critic. It’s no accident that Saturn, the planetary lord of obligation and duty (not to mention guilt) is exalted in Libra.

Finally, of all the zodiac signs Libra struggles most with the old adage, ‘you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t’. This might be true. But if you adopt it as your motto for everyday life, you’ll end up second guessing yourself the moment that you’ve taken any decision. This is not productive. This sends self-cancelling energy out into the universe and the universe responds by leaving you stuck. 

If you could use some help putting together a plan of action to get yourself unstuck, give me a shout. Doubtless, Libra is not the only zodiacal energy in your natal chart with which we can work to ensure that for you, a happier, more productive year lies ahead. Contact Debra to discuss all things stellar and to investigate Astrology Coaching for you
