Welcome to “Starcast” – an incredible look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. On Earth (where human beings live), there’s always so much going on – who has the time to worry (or wonder, for that matter) about what’s taking place in our solar system? Just a few. Nonetheless, what actually takes place – like the planet, Mars (raw energy) now in Libra, the Balancing Scales – does influence each of us. And it’s all dial-adjusted to fit our individual sun-sign. Here’s how it works: Whatever your sun-sign, this powerful planet placement (Mars in Libra) affects you directly – because Libra governs one of the twelve houses within your birth chart (also known as the zodiac wheel).
In your mind’s eye, scroll back to last Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 12:41 p.m. (ET). That’s when Mars entered the charming sun-sign of Libra, the Balancing Scales – and will be traveling through there until Friday, July 25, 2014 at 9:25 a.m. (ET) – when it leaves and enters the no-nonsense sun-sign of Scorpio, the Scorpion (definitely, a “Starcast” for another time). Ruled by the powerful planet, Venus (love, close relationships, and creativity), Libra is engaging, yet strangely fearless. This is an invaluable time during which you’re energized to change things for the better, to move situations forward; and possibly, to place outside of your Life whatever and whomever is holding you back. Pace yourself – mentally, emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually. And keep your thoughts, optimistic; your actions, strong and subtle.
Look at a numerical (1 through 12) clock or wristwatch. That’s the zodiac wheel – that’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (7 to 6 o’clock, for example) is a house, an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your existence, one of which Libra, the Balancing Scales, governs in your birth chart. Now, know that this influence (Mars in Libra) now energizes your thoughts and actions. Still, don’t discuss this divine and ongoing activity with anyone. It’s all the more powerful for being kept hidden.
Here’s how the planet, Mars (raw energy) in Libra, the Balancing Scales, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
ARIES March 21-April 19
Your 7th House: Agreements and Arrangements; certainly, Contracts. Using your innate skill at being incredibly selective – when you want to be – pursue those special alliances which promise advancement where you need it most. SIDESTEP being too low-key for current conditions.
TAURUS April 20-May 20
Your 6th House: Your Working Environment. This is a huge area of activity for you, which is highly active at all times. You never quit. That’s fine, as long as you remember to infuse it with love, laughter, and enthusiasm. SIDESTEP going over past situations, best forgotten.
GEMINI May 21-June 21
Your 5th House: Close Relationships, Creative Matters, and Speculation. Most important: Constantly remember to stay focused on what – and whom – you desire. Believe in your ability to attract it, for your beliefs always create your reality. SIDESTEP being nearly impossible to find.
CANCER June 22-July 22
Your 4th House: Home and Home-Related Matters. It’s back to the drawing board, as you sort out the various ways to deal with – and possibly, to restructure – an assortment of late-breaking home-related developments. You can do it! SIDESTEP being difficult to reason with.
LEO July 23-August 22
Your 3rd House: Expressing Your Point-of-View. This is now, always has been, and always will be, a favorite activity of yours. Remember to bring your natural generosity of spirit to whatever is at the center of meetings and ongoing discussions. SIDESTEP being distant and unapproachable.
VIRGO August 23-September 22
Your 2nd House: Your Personal Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. Here’s the one area that’s always in your thoughts. Good! Embrace it, for the understanding attention that you give it only serves to strengthen it. SIDESTEP a bleak take on situations that invade your thoughts.
LIBRA September 23-October 22
Your 1st House: Personal Endeavors. Don’t hesitate to forge ahead (following all personal debates with yourself) on those special projects that most interest you now. Time is on your side and you certainly have planetary backup. SIDESTEP losing your temper at the wrong moment.
SCORPIO October 23-November 21
Your 12th House: Secret Strategy-Planning Sessions. Don’t avoid this. Allow it to be fun (yes, that’s the word – fun!). You’re enormously skilled in this area. And amazing developments always occur when you give it your full attention. SIDESTEP chilliness; warmth truly saves the day.
SAGITTARIUS November 22-December 21
Your 11th House: Obtaining the Desires-of-Your-Heart. Here’s an area that’s constantly subject to change. No matter. Your natural flexibility allows you to welcome any good thing that appears in your Life. Your natural enthusiasm is the only requirement. SIDESTEP indifference.
CAPRICORN December 22-January 19
Your 10th House: Your Career and Its Content. You’re quite comfortable with the driving force of the planet, Mars, in your career. Great! Use it well; above all, use it wisely. Means stay focused on current objectives, taking them, one at a time. SIDESTEP overlooking some superb ideas.
AQUARIUS January 20-February 18
Your 9th House: New Ideas, Plans, and Projects – near and at a distance. You’re always enthralled with your own ideas, concepts, and insights. And that’s wonderful as Mars (raw energy) now allows you to make them a reality. SIDESTEP hiding out – when center stage belongs to you.
PISCES February 19-March 20
Your 8th House: Revitalization, on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Continue to pace yourself in whatever way feels most comfortable to you. And give your complete attention to whatever improves – and advances – your Life. SIDESTEP sarcasm.
