The courageous and good looking Oct 11, 1977 Matt Bomer
Matt has Mercury, Pluto and Sun closely together in Libra! His birthtime is unknown, so his Moon could be in Virgo conjunct Libra's planet Venus, or also in Libra! As White Collar character Neal Caffrey, he portrays several Libran facets - a person to whom relationships are very important, love of art and refinement, being an impeccable dresser, and smart as a whip! In person, February 13, 2012 he came out as gay, works in the fight against HIV/AIDS. From recent role as male stripper Magic Mike, currently Matt is being considered to star in another bad boy role as Christian Gray in 50 Shades of Gray!
Libra - Walk the line, the razor's edge, the tightrope....
The Line may be invisible, whether it's the toe in the sand or a place in ourselves we won't cross. What if you just picked up the rope, coiled it up and walked on?
We are all so connected. Sometimes the lines get tangled, knotted, stuck tight. Fright versus taking a deep breath. Let go the end, wiggle and loosen. Reach out for a helping hand. Follow the Light.
A place of open stillness where anything may be peaceably considered before a choice. It can be a threshold as fine as a razor's edge where a breath, a minute difference in perception, can tip the balance. We can stay, make a shift, renew our poise in a new situation, at the next step or level. Chaos, peace, chaos, peace....
We can walk the tightrope, a keen vantage point, keeping Sacred Balance wherever we go, holding to our Principles unwaveringly. We can carry the tray of food, not spilling the coffee.
Law & Order
We negotiate our rules, they change through the generations. In this country, at this time we are culturally focused on LGBT relationships, abortion, medical care, wealth VS poverty. What's fair, respectable? Will there be mayhem or revolution if things get too extreme? Librans are not afraid to fight if peace doesn't come. People who have lost homes and their way of living are in tender needs, fragile. Some are volatile and outraged, at breaking points. For some the world is moving too fast and they don't know what to do, inexperienced, a bit desperate. It's time to sit down together, see the other person's point of view, share as and what we can. At the same time we need to protect ourselves and not provoke a hurting person who is temporarily blinded.
She's blindfolded, sword in hand, but at her side and she can't see who or where to strike! The scales are foremost and held high. Lay your sword aside, find the way of peace. Pretend you are blindfolded. Pretend you are a WOMAN! What would YOU do?!? Sometimes it's best to keep things equal, not judge by what we see. Let the rules apply in a good way for all.
Libra is challenged by the planets in these signs, Aries opposite, Capricorn square. Libra likes to keep balance, Aries keeps pushing and not necessarily politely, or they just do what they do with no consideration at all, just living life vigorously because they ARE! Libra is concerned for the welfare of others, how things will affect the other and consequences to themselves. They query and parry, just like a court case, until a well rounded solution is reached if possible. Aries invites them to stand up, not worry so much! Capricorn is generally more practical than sympathetic, more a worker than social, unless they see the sociality as part of the job. They can be blunt, intimidating at times, pull rank, sometimes accused of being cold. Libras are out there Venus style, catching more flies with honey. True, sometimes they are too soft, people pleasing, and need to buck up. Cappies sometimes need to follow more gracious social protocol, bring in more connections to expand their business.
Librans are considered to be political beasties! The see both sides, are agreeable, they can run a good con, smilingly dodge loaded questions, are infinitely presentable, perfectly charming! Door to door and on the phones, greeting people and making them feel comfortable are strong assets. They are totally social, love gatherings, more to the gentile side if possible. Candidate or campaign worker, they are a blessing!
Librans go through gateways quite naturally. They are curious socially, culturally, and about the changes in the Universe. They are quite aware of their surroundings and will help make liaisons with people moving forward on the Path, facilitate people to move forward. Librans recognize Sacred Protocol, are instinctively present. Undoubtedly, St Peter is a Libra.
STAR*SMART: Here we are past mid 2012, a VERY EVENTFUL year!
We have had and still have some rare events to come! We have had the Venus Transit the Sun JUNE 5, Neptune is in its own sign Pisces now. Uranus square Pluto was exact for the first of 7 times June 24 Pacific, November brings our Presidential Elections, December finishes with the 12:12:12, and Dec 21 the 26,000 year turnover of the Mayan Calendar! Please see your CERENA'S ItsAstroLogical NEWSLETTER, Special Edition 2012!
about these and more! Because 4 of the outer planets are at early degrees of their signs, the first 11 days of each sign has a lot of aspects happening, then the intensity tapers off....
Another special event is the fixed star Regulus has moved from 29 Leo, where it has been for 72 years, to 0 Virgo, where it will reside for 72 years. Fixed stars are “fixed” because they hardly move, from our perspective, in an entire lifetime. As a reflection/projection of our consciousness they are a piece of our spiritual body that holds a very specific focus for our consciousness throughout our lifetime. Regulus is one of four Royal fixed stars, each of whom has always been associated with the equinoxes and solstices. As it turns out, Regulus has not been at 0 Virgo in 26,000 years….the number of years very much associated with the precession of the equinox. This is all so exciting for an astrologer looking at meta themes and cycles. What this signifies is the birth of the new order – look at your life experiences right now and look for the theme of conception. However literal or metaphorical, divine or physical, there is a birth of a new consciousness happening to all of us and it is the new order. Regulus will be in Virgo for the next 2,000 plus years….the entirety of the Aquarian age. It took the Sun moving over it just last week to really get us to hear the significance of this time period. Can you feel the momentousness of it all? In some way in your life you can find some element where you feel like you’ve arrived in a way never experienced before. It is truly special.
Libra 2012 Moons - Harvest Moon Sep 29!
Sep 29, Harvest Full Moon at 7 Aries/Libra, 8:19 PM Pacific!
Sep 24 to 29, Solar T Square with the Uranus/Pluto Square
This Moon will be part of the Solar T Square with the Uranus/Pluto Square in Cardinal Signs!
The purpose of Cardinal Signs is to get things moving! The Libra Sun
will warm things up, Light up the dark spaces, especially in relationships, about finances both personal and political. Don't wait for it, take care of what you can now, get the subjects on the table and with a lot of love and respect, and gentle reasonable requests, make your needs known, and set some timelines, boundaries. Keep checking for progress, no matter how small, give credit. Mama Moon
will be backup, the Nurturer keeping you fueled and rested. In Aries her Intuition will be instant, spot on and ready to roll when needed. Moon is conjunct, right next to, Uranus in Aries
, there is no lack of wild genius, and friends either go with you in full concert, or without you, happy to be on their own! Moon has to do with your family group, especially the Matriarchal side, Uranus has to do with community, even worldwide. They can quite naturally work together for common cause, though if Moon gets a little scared by Uranus being out of ken, it could get tense and reactive. Sun may get its ego bumped, and Pluto may withdraw to safer spaces out of sight until things get back on an even keel. If Pluto feels cornered, watch out, it can sting, and if abused/cheated, the revenge/prey game can come into play and you'll wish you never. Otherwise Pluto in Capricorn
is an adept business person, a powerful resourceful figure to be called on or reckoned with. Capricorn is skilled at conserving its energy and materials, condensing them to an astounding potency for the least price. They survive adverse conditions, planning all the time, adjusting their course with the times. With Pluto they are masters at waiting, holding ground, scoring well at the end game, come out on top by sheer will and perseverance.
This will be a splendid time to identify the people with strength and longevity. Butt in! Let them know who you are. The first meetings might not be easy, but you may be seen and admired as up and coming. If you are in charge, keep your eyes open for the ones on their way up the mountain, get them on your team. If you have been let go or didn't get the job, are just getting started, take excellent care of yourself always. We need you to find your right current niche. Keep applying, keep exploring. Keep checking in with yourself (Sun) to see you are as clearly on course as your heart would like you to be. Maybe it's time to free yourself and start your own unique business. Difficult times call for wonderful innovative solutions! They are times to open new doors!
And, believe me, it will be new doors! Saturn is at 29 Libra, the last degree, just 6 days away from entering Scorpio Oct 5! Time to finish up, give gratitude, and move on!
Saturn rules earthly thresholds, Scorpio rules death, rebirth! Only five days later, Oct 10, Saturn will make its first major aspect in its new sign - it will trine Neptune, planet of visions, magic, music and om - Spiritual thresholds!
This Solar T is the last 2012 T Square formed with the Uranus/Pluto square.
Though not a T Square, late Nov Mars activates the Uranus/Pluto square two weeks!
Oct 15 New Moon at 5:03 AM Pacific, 22 Libra!
Though the New Moon makes no aspects, there are two planetary patterns of note.
First, as with all New Moons, specially intend to finish and start new intentions, or renew your intentions. In this case, be they of Libran matters, peace, accord, respect, balance. Especially apply these to the position of influence you hold in your community, within your relationships, both business and personal. Renew your connection with your children. Make some special time to be with them in a good way that they would enjoy, not necessarily what you would enjoy. Next time it's your turn!
One planetary pattern is that Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Venus in Virgo
at 14 degrees! Venus is Libra's planet, and Mercury puts words to the Beauty. Give some meaningful appreciation, acknowledge/reveal a need, a desire. Replace, upgrade, renew, repair, replant. Jupiter is also activated. Consider where to go, how far, how much of the story to tell. What's it worth?
Oct 6 Mars in Sagittarius
jumped into the second pattern. New Moon day it is at 5 degrees dancing with Pluto, Chiron and Uranus! The most fun is the trine with Uranus! What one doesn't get into, the other will! Old troubles just don't seem so daunting, new solutions pop up! With the encouragement of new friends, the excitement of it all, extraordinary progress can be made! Or you could just go play all by yourself - free! :)
Three Sign Changes Oct 5 & 6!
Last Outer Planet Sign Change of 2012,
Saturn into Scorpio October 5 through Sep 18, 2015
Many of you have shivered in your boots at the thought of our old nemesis Saturn in Scorpio the Death Master's Sign! People could die, and they will. People could heal against all odds, and they will. There will be layoffs, business losses, foreclosures. There will be reconciliations and resurrections, new businesses and alliances formed, new formats that better use our strengths. Saturn is the Magician and Scorpio the Master. Saturn works the rocks of time, is the Builder of Temples. Scorpio is the trader of Secrets, follows threads most are not aware of and wouldn't dare to follow if they did see them! Scorpio has a singular intensity that infuses people with a fearlessness they thought they thought of themselves! Once you have met Death face to face, you change.
Saturn in Scorpio is in Mutual Reception with Pluto in Capricorn, in each other's signs, both Saints & Sinners, if you will! That can be a powerful interlocking, a harmony, or a know-too-much power struggle, an undoing. It's like Jacob wrestling with the Angel in the Night. Regardless of your beliefs, please consider this story, a thoughtful read. Soul Retrieval time.
Saturn tends to be conservative, yet, comes to understand that boundaries held too tight cave in on themselves, hence, doors and windows, thresholds. And there is no way out of Time, things change, evolve. There is no going back. Even if we try, things around us are different, always impinging on our attempt to cling. We protest the most when we know letting go is imminent. Time works for us with maturity, and old depressions get left behind as well. There are resignations to reality, that save us from tiring ourselves struggling needlessly. We become truer, more deeply ourselves.
Scorpio, famed for its compulsions and obsessions, could use a little Saturnian restraint. The resulting focus could be laser like, the Sun's Light through the crystal! Scorpio's attention to deeper relationships, financial power, could be a true force for sustainable living. Saturn can be reluctant. Scorpio loves a little look at danger, paradoxically, spice worth living for!! Saturn at times is thought to be cold, intimidating, foreboding at times. Scorpios can't do that if they try! They have charisma no matter what their appearance is! Saturn may feel a little uncomfortable landing there until it gets used to this new facet of being in the grocery store line! Both Saturn and Scorpio like achievement - Saturn climbing the peaks, Scorpio the graphs of good fortune.
Sexy or celibate, take care of your sexual and eliminatory organs. Saturn will find any weaknesses that need attention. See your therapist. You could really get your money's worth in this two years, on the deepest matters, longstanding ones, even from past life times. Spiritually, it may be time to take time out for silence, reflection. Restore your emergency food and water supplies. Set up a grey water system. Be aware of what you are eating, how it is packaged. Eat less, stop overtaxing your system. Scorpio is the sign of detoxing, recycling, renovation, restoration. Saturn likes to use things to the limit, use it until it is done. Check out elder facilities for yourself or loved ones. Make or review your Will.
Saturn is known to be a hard worker. Scorpio likes to compound the interest! Much will be accomplished in this next three years. Read more! Read about the last time Saturn was in Scorpio!
Also Oct 5 MERCURY enters Scorpio to Oct 28
Thinking runs deeper than usual, lots on your mind, intense paperwork. Sometimes we are relieved to find the secret passageway, other times we are appalled at how wrong things are. Speak out cleanly, without revenge or malice so there is less clean up needed later on, avoid schisms as possible. Pose your message as an invitation, proactive. We're on this Planet together. For a long time. It's time to clean up what's done, repair and resurrect what's still worthy. We can have allure for powerful ideas, afraid of the magnitude of success they can bring. Secrets are usually about sex and money and we aren't supposed to talk about Death. But these are such important matters. Let's get good with sex, stand up against abuse of any kind. Learn about financial processes, take care of business, don't be cheated, or lose through ignorance. Make peace, make amends, make your will. Take care of the needs of loved ones in pain or near their time. Please don't abandon them, nor yourself.
Oct 6 MARS enters Sagittarius to Nov 16
How fast and far can you run?! Mars is a sprinter, quick to zip off to the next hot spot! Sagittarius sees it far, far away. There has been so much intensity lately, this combo may pull off the great escape! Save yourself, schedule it in advance! It will help you stay put, to do the necessities, knowing there will be time ahead to enjoy freely. Make it something really fun, do something athletic that you love, so your body gets stretched, as well as your learning game and attention! Get excited and forget the necessities for a couple days if that is all the time you can take. You may find yourself passionately promoting your opinions that may well separate the men from the boys. Be mindful telling stories about your friends, matters of prowess, that you don't hurt feelings with too much 'truth.' Betting on sports can take on new meaning here, because you feel you cannot lose! Being overconfident can spoil the outcome. Bragging dominance and swaggering may cost you more than you would like to lose in the long term. But if you have been meekly, it's time to get it up and enjoy the ribbons and cups, the spoils to the victor, at last! Racing is terrific fun! Car or horse, skates or skis, go for it!
Oct 10 Saturn trine Neptune 1st of 3 Times
High Priestess - Cosmic Tarot
Saturn is the one on high. In Scorpio, likely sexy, Queen of Seductive!
Neptune in it's own sign Pisces, rules the Ocean, the Spiritual Universe, entire immersion.
Immediately following Saturn's entry into Scorpio, it trines Neptune in it's own sign Pisces, at ZERO degrees! Use this aspect deliberately because we won't get another major aspect with this combo until 2026 when Saturn conjuncts Neptune at ZERO Aries! Along with this set is Saturn trining Chiron starting Nov 16, for the first of FIVE times, the last Aug 5, 2014. Neptune is first, Saturn carries on with Chiron as Chiron, traveling faster, leaves Neptune behind. In this current Saturn/Neptune set, the second aspect is 8 months away from now, June 11, 2013. At that time, Saturn retrograde, just about to turn direct. It holds a less than one degree station, quickly forming the third and final aspect the next month on July 19, 2013. What you start now, of the nature of this combiniation, will incubate. Though seeds are planted, they may lie still, until reactivated next summer. Or you may decide to consciously grow the possibilities, paying attention, building all the while. Saturn wants results, and sometimes Neptune is elusive, well nigh invisible, ethers, Spirit. It may seem like nothing is happening....
I always used to laugh when people said how do you meditate? How do you tell someone how to do something invisible. Yet, it is doable. Start with quiet space so you can notice more subtle things and be less distracted. Practice. Your attention will wander, but you can bring it back again, and agian. It teaches focus. Practice. It gets easier. It's a state of mind just like using biofeedback. You can do it. Yes, it takes determination for some of us. It teaches perseverance and patience. And humility and compassion, for we all have hard-to-reach spaces. It teaches trust in that we can come back to our intended spot. This is all so Saturn/Neptune.
In the business world, Saturn is the CEO, the grand Master Builder, person of rank, a powerful elder. Accomplishment is not a thing, but a natural energy. Pisces, when not dreaming, wants to save the world! What better a combination to do it?! Pisces can use a little discipline. Saturn can take the music, the shipping, ocean sports, coastal spas, and put them on the map! Saturn can use a little softening and forgiveness. Saturnians expect so much and, sometimes, no matter how much they achieve, it seems not enough. Pisces can go spiritual on you, and money doesn't matter at all. Just be careful you don't use the flock and collectiviely 'steal' their small earnings. Karma later. More better to co-invest and build the Temple together! Coastal real estate may be a terrific long term investment.
At the personal level, even with trines, considered positive, sometimes I see people have doubts, fears, depressions when Saturn is involved, because they see what could have been, think they could never have that dream. Time to get up, take it in bite size pieces, do what you can do. Some is better than none. Be humble in a good way and enjoy what you have right now. Sometimes, though the increment be small, it was a grand acheivement for that person. If that's you, give yourself a pat, get up off your knees, square up those shoulders. Practice some giving. If you have nothing material, give your time and a smile. It's not just all about you. Sometimes we get addicted to these mental/emotional patterns. Shake like a wet dog! Wake up your brain. Don't get sluggish. As you can, let go of, grow beyond whatever addictions you have. If you can't do it by yourself, sign up for rehab treatment next summer during the trine station mentioned in the 1st paragraph. Time well spent. You are a mighty Soul.
One day at a time, no less than any Priestess would do.
Sunday Oct 21 Orionids Meteor Showers!
Per EarthSky: Look for the greatest numbers of meteors to streak the sky in the dark hours before dawn on Saturday, October 20, and Sunday, October 21, with forecasters giving the nod to Sunday. Fortunately, the waxing crescent moon will set way before the prime time hours for watching the Orionids.
Happy Birthdays, Libran Angels!
Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.
