Alchemy of Libra's Full Moon

The status quo is thrown overboard, and you must reinvent your relationships or bury the remains. 

Wednesday’s Libra Full Moon fuels the alchemy of relationships, transmuting your life experiences into the gold of your heart’s desire. This comes with lots and lots of heat, fueled by the cooperative breath of Libra. 

Your relationships are put into a crucible formed by the joined fires of four planetary energies; passionate love, solar-powered drive, sudden changes, and courageous action.  All being stirred by the hand of good fortune.

Monday delivers the optimism to loosen up the luck that wants to fall right into your lap! Hang onto it for Tuesday when tempers, even violence, flare up.  Stay light on your feet like an agile boxer, but listen for whispers of sweet nothings in your ear.   

If you compromised too much under Libra’s people-pleasing influence, it comes back to bite you Thursday afternoon when lightning bolts of sudden change strike from out of the blue.  You’ll have the powerful willpower to get to the bottom of what’s happening, courtesy of the zodiac’s Sherlock Holmes.

♡ Date Night:  Venus and Mars
Don’t go out unless you’re up for an intense encounter.  Patience is essential for your relationship that’s still reassembling itself after this week’s volcanic blow out.  Still, there’s reason to hope for happiness with the lovers both in passionate fire signs. Venus sobers up Saturday morning, not enough to be a total buzz kill, but serious enough to look at the realities. Thankfully Saturday night gets the sparkle of positive thinking and a jump into optimism. 

The Force of heat is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of March 24 - 30, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
You’ll wake up to this week with an unusually optimistic attitude that puts you in motion with enthusiasm. Your alchemy is in letting go of the approval of others while at the same time listening to their advice--patiently!  Your refusal to admit defeat is a source of your strength, and winning is great fun!  You’re recharging your batteries for the year ahead, which requires you to look at your needs.  Allow some enlightened self-interest.  Your first duty right now is to yourself. You have a lot of forceful energy at your disposal and a big need to express yourself--authentically.    

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
If you’ve been in a state of fatigue, don’t be discouraged.  What is really happening is you may feel defeated when in fact everything is working out just the way it should.  Relax.  Your perceptions are heightened and “mistakes” seem to stand out in relief. So will successes!  You need, and would love, some quiet time of solitude for emotional and artistic attunement to your deepest inspirations.  There is a wealth of kindness and compassion for those whose feelings are easily bruised, including yourself.  

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Single-mindedness slows your pace to a manageable and even relaxing flow, since you have less resistance to change.  Your relationships are in harmony with who you know yourself to be, and people are attracted to you.  Your alchemy is fitting into a group, even being the social butterfly, without losing your integrity.  Look for a friend who will introduce you to a new love interest, perhaps an artist or musician.  

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Tests of the validity of the path you’re on are occurring.  The heads or tails of the two sided coin of crisis/opportunity is actually decided by you.  Toss the coin with love, not fear.  Opposition may make you very angry, but it’s really there to motivate you to prove yourself.  Enhancing your confidence and esteem.  This week can bring career success through someone who loves and appreciates you.  Climb the ladder with ambition, and don’t forget your old friends who put your foot on the right rung.  

Leo (July 22-August 22)
You radiate warmth, so this is a great time to go out and socialize.  Your alchemy lies in stopping to review your achievements, letting go of dead wood without regrets, and adjust to a new tack that minimizes opposition.  Salvage only the remains that matter.  The goddess of love is in your house of travel, and she’s only interested in making the trip for pleasure, not work.  Even so, you’re likely to meet someone who has life experiences that are unfamiliar to you and will broaden your outlook.  

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The Moon settles into Virgo’s orderliness Sunday morning, but your usual keen analysis is curbed by the spiritual pull of Neptune.  It’s a chance for some well grounded daydreaming. You’ve been carrying tensions for some time and you’re just now recognizing what it’s been about, seeing it for what it really is. Something has not worked out as you planned, and you’ve actually known it all along.  Remember to put your trust in your spirituality and intuition for the solution. You’re very in touch with subtle psychic and psychological vibes.  Your sensitive antennae are tuned to feelings, perfect for self-inquiry.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
The Moon moves gracefully into Libra on Tuesday afternoon, and you’re on your way to Wednesday morning’s Full Moon in your sign.  It’s the most dynamic and intense of this year. Your mood lifts right off the ground like a hot air balloon, then runs into a power struggle and quickly has to dodge some stray bullets.  All before noon! You’re oriented toward your relationships and they’re transmuting right before your eyes!  You’re in a time of culmination and climax of things that began on your birthday.  Venus doesn’t want you to go it alone, and she’s teaching you how through one to one intimate encounters.

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Try not to interpret current events as failure, but rather that you entered a “life experiment” that helped you discover something you need. The alchemical heat of this week’s pile up in Aries will “cook” apparently divergent situations into your personal gold mine.  Venus says be of service, but do it in a way that connects you to your own artistry.  Thank God Mental Mercury pulls your thoughts together in some sort of order this Thursday afternoon, with the help of Serious Saturn in your sign. You appreciate your good health and stable beliefs.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Your relationships with loved ones are particularly warm right now.  Your alchemy is transmuting the obstacles to being yourself into great zest to do whatever you want to do.  Review the projects you’ve started since your birthday that are working out well, they are reaching critical culmination now and success is around the corner.  You’re free from the turmoils and have a breathing space.  It’s good for you to be with others, while keeping your own dreams in sight.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
A low ebb in energy will actually help you increase your self-awareness if you focus on your inner world.  What’s actually happening is that you’re getting a look at what’s working out and what isn’t, and the effect it’s having on your life.  Your power to recreate and rebuild structures has never been stronger.  Let your life experiences recreate you.  You’re hunkered down with family and your solid base.  From these familiar surroundings you can feel exactly where you stand in the world.  

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
You’re in a time of preparation and readiness regarding the projects you began on your birthday.  Put down the how-to books and use your subjective feelings to guide you.  Your sense of happiness and well being is fueled by the current lineup of Aries planets, just don’t adopt their impatience!  Venus is guiding your intellectual interest toward the arts and a love of poetry.  Listen.

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
Some tense days ahead this week as your struggle between the demands of your personal life and your worldly ambitions.  You feel pulled in two directions and you want to go both ways!  The most important thing to do is decide.  Delay will be more uncomfortable.  Ask yourself, “what do I value the most?”  Surround yourself with beauty, dress outrageously!  Venus will guide you to the comforts you desire, the artistry you need.
