Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Libra: Education, Travel, Adventure, Worldview, Career, Reputation
Your Libra 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure continue to grow and expand at a rapid pace. This is a time in your life when you don't sweat the small stuff as much. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don't stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is fabulous during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle that puts your career on center stage. You'll want to be prepared!
New learning experiences as well as "life" experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of this cycle, you might have the opportunity to publish your ideas or to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take part in other studies. There can be favorable connections made with people far away from you. Be cautious in January and March, however, when you may be lured along a path that has you neglecting important duties and responsibilities. There can also be some difficulties finding the money to fund your studies or ambitions.
From June 25th onward, your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation begin to grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before. All of the hard work you've put in begins to pay off and is rewarded - or at the very least, recognized. This influence will be with you until July 2014.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it's a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don't take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and this can be especially true for your studies, knowledge, know-how, and any work you do with communications. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You might repair a relationship with a sibling, publish your writing, win an award or a title, and so forth. A sibling could receive an honor or a promotion. Your career could involve more communication during this cycle, and you may be learning to present your ideas with more authority.
There may be difficulties with a family member who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life, particularly in August.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. July can be especially strong for practical matters, business, financial improvement, and recognition for past hard work as well as natural talents and skills. This influence will be in effect until July 2014.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Finances, Values
Your Libra 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules personal finances, income derived from your own efforts (this excludes shared finances and financial support through debts and rebates), personal possessions, self-esteem, personal talents, and personal values. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and will be with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
Tests can come to your financial affairs during this cycle. You are challenged to better manage your personal resources, and to come up with a fair and realistic assessment of your value or worth as well. You may be necessarily more cautious about entering into heavy financial commitments during this period, and more cautious in general with spending. Worries can surface about your earning power, but as you progress, the ideal end result will be a stronger sense of what you are capable of earning, better spending and saving habits, and a more realistic budget. Cutting back on some luxuries may be in order, but you may just discover that the security you gain is more important than the luxuries you let go.
Overall this should be a rewarding cycle for coming to a better position in the management of your material resources. You are exceptionally security-minded at this time and you can begin or step up savings plans. Feelings of security can be especially strong in March and September-October. July might bring a boost in position that could also be recognized financially. Many of you will be investing in your home and family in 2013. There can be home-related businesses. You are certainly not interested in taking risks with your money right now, as you value stability and security more than anything for the time being.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: partnerships
Your 2013 Libra Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which partnerships and relationships with others may be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you throughout 2013 and beyond. You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and possibly even eccentric or unstable as close partners; or you attract these types of people into your experience without necessarily wanting to! You are learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn't always easy, particularly in May, August, and October-November, when disagreements about or with family can surface. Relationships can be unpredictable at this time. As a Libra, learning to detach yourself from some of the too-dependent elements of partnering can be a difficult thing, but if you learn that you can in fact subsist independently, you are more able to relate to others on a healthy level, more able to choose what and who is right for you in a relationship, and less likely to allow others to take advantage of your obliging nature.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Family, Inner Foundations, Home Life, Finances
Your 2013 Libra Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Attitudes towards home and family continue to transform this year. There can be a retreat into yourself during this cycle as you explore, on a very deep level, your roots, childhood conditioning, and feelings of personal security. March-April and September-October can bring rewarding change and development to your home life. Building your "nest" comes into strong, positive focus. More challenging periods are possible in May, August, and November, when there can be sudden events or circumstances that leave you feeling a little insecure.
In 2013, your finances are evolving in important ways. You will be called upon to strike a balance between your own needs for security and comfort and the same needs of other people, such as those of a significant other. You are learning to ask for what you deserve, and to take charge of your earnings.
