2013: Libra Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
2013 Overview for all Libra.
2013 should be a strong year for work and business, dear Libra. In the first half of the year, you are actively building your skills and experience. By midyear, expansive Jupiter’s rise to the very top of your solar chart marks a personal peak of sorts – a cycle that’s with you for approximately a year. Take advantage of the cycle from January to June by learning as much as possible so that when Jupiter does reach its peak in June-July, you’ll be able to take advantage of the career opportunities that are likely to come your way. You’ll also feel more deserving of the recognition you receive then and through to mid-2014. There can be favorable connections made with people far away from you, and some Libras will get published or reach a broader audience. Saturn’s presence in your money and values sector can promote a feeling that you’re pinched in the money department, but this can serve to motivate you to work harder and save more – two good things! In the second half of the year, you’ll have Jupiter telling you that you deserve more and that you should reach for the stars; and you’ll have Saturn reminding you that you have to “get real” and consider important details. Luckily, these planets harmonize with each other much of the year, and this helps you to find a very nice balance. You are also bringing more imagination to the work you do, and your intuition can serve you very well. There will be times this year when you need to consciously push yourself to go after what you want. In the process, try your best to avoid worrying about coming across as “nice” and “good”. You are these things – you don’t need to prove it. You don’t want to miss out on opportunities to advance out of fear of losing others’ approval. Love continues to challenge you this year by forcing you out of your comfort zone from time to time, and particularly in May and October-November. Mid-March to mid-April can bring surprising circumstances to your relationships. Don’t fall back on familiar patterns now – they won’t work. Mix things up and think outside of the box. However, if others are slipping in and out of your life and you feel taken advantage of, do stand your ground. You are likely to invest more heavily into home and family in 2013, and some of you will be running home-related businesses or will be working from home. You are cautious with your money, and this is necessary right now.
Until June 25th, Jupiter continues to transit your solar ninth house. Under this influence, you may have opportunities to travel, study, go abroad, expand your horizons, and meet people who are of diverse backgrounds. You might become more intellectually curious now, and academic pursuits are likely to benefit you and run smoothly during this cycle. Business dealings, particularly long-distance ones and those involving publicity and promotion, are likely to be profitable now. Legal matters might also work in your favor, or long-standing legal problems might now be ironed out. Some of you will be seeking legal advice and find it especially helpful now. A more faithful attitude towards life in general is likely now–you tend to feel that everything will work out in the end. Authors might get published now, receive good reviews, or they could significantly expand their audience. Travel is quite possible now, whether it’s business or personal. Educational and travel opportunities expand your horizons. Teaching and learning are favored now. Writing and studying flow more naturally now. This is also an excellent period for positive dealings with in-laws! Your mind is more expansive and tolerant, and you are under less stress than usual. You are less inclined to sweat the small stuff. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Watch for a tendency towards a “holier than thou” attitude.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from January 30th to June 25th.
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.
Jupiter then enters your solar tenth house on June 25th, and continues to transit this area of your chart until July 2014. Increased public recognition and professional success characterize this position. This can be a time of achievement, career advancement, and success in business. Business-related travel or the reaching of a wider audience is possible during this cycle. Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or a marriage. You may come into the limelight. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet! These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
Your hard work and effort can be recognized now, and 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.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from June 25th to November 6th. (This transit lasts until July 2014).
Saturn continues to transit your solar second house – an influence that will be with you until 2015, and that is generally felt most strongly in the first year of its transit (in your case, from October 2012 to October 2013). Saturn here urges you to take stock of your effectiveness, self-worth, and finances. This stage of your life may involve hard work, but not necessarily of an unpleasant variety! Financial success is generally steady, if slow to come by. This transit has traditionally been associated with financial loss, but in truth, it is more about our perceptions–you are likely to review how effective you have been on a financial level to date, and find some dissatisfaction with your progress. In fact, gains may be slow, but sudden reversals are not common with this transit. The purpose of this transit is for you to make the connection between your own feelings of self-worth and what you produce in the real world/get back from the real world. In recent years, you may have had some feelings of being unsupported (you may have been thinking, “I work so hard, and what do I get for all this hard work?”), but as the transit moves forward, you learn to look inside of yourself with a newfound clarity and realism and ideally draw up considerable strength from within. You work on your effectiveness in the world, and see exactly what has been holding you back from achieving the results you want. The challenge here is to capture the newly found and defined self-confidence you gained while Saturn was in Libra, and now apply it in the real world.
Close relationships may receive a shake-down of sorts, and you may feel that it’s hard to truly rely on a partner. Lifeless or outworn relationships may become harder to bear. Some trial and error in relationships is par for the course with Uranus in this sector of your chart. People in your life may be surprised at your displays of independence. You don’t care for taking orders, and any attempts to limit you are likely to be met with great resistance or downright rebelliousness on your part. Some of you may find your current partnership limiting and you could either end it or experience tension as you explore ways to break free from restriction. Some of you could experience erratic or rebellious behavior in a close partner, and this could have you on your toes, wondering what’s next. Changes in your view of partnerships are in store in 2013. Many of you are feeling strong urges to break free from your routine and to express yourselves in a freer manner. Conditions and responsibilities that you have previously tolerated or even enjoyed are now seen as overwhelming and restrictive. Inner changes and struggles occur quite dramatically, and if your outer world and the people around you are not changing along with you (which is more than likely!), you could feel extremely restless and tied down. You are likely questioning your life as it has been, and wondering if there is a whole lot more for you “somewhere out there”. There is an expression that applies here: “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water”. In your attempts to make changes in your life, and to rid yourself of limiting conditions, you are prone to making hasty decisions and leaving behind circumstances, jobs, or people that you might one day miss. Recognize that your urge to rebel comes from a desire for more freedom and self-expression, and find ways to express yourself and your freedom that don’t completely upset the things you have worked hard on building to date. Also recognize that as you listen to a bruised or misbehaving ego, you are prone to ignoring your deepest emotions, and as a result you may sever ties that later leave you wanting. It is especially important to be aware of this “blind spot”.
Your romantic life has been more colorful and rich for several years with Neptune making its way slowly through your solar fifth house. You are highly romantic, but also somewhat prone to self-deception–seeing what you want to see in a lover rather than what really is. Being “in love with love” is quite probable now. Love can be very romantic for you, but it can also be complicated or downright elusive! You may find yourself falling in love with someone unattainable or attached, for example; or you might attach yourself to someone who you deem needs “saving”. Use some caution in this respect. Drama in romance can be lovely, but too much of it will only leave you yearning and perhaps even heartbroken. Caution with gambling is also necessary. You are more imaginative under this influence, however, and you might take up a very artistic hobby or other creative outlet. This influence leaves those born September 24-29 this year.
For Libras born October 1-2 or with an Ascendant of 8-10 degrees of Libra, you are experiencing a Pluto transit square to your Sun. You are also beginning a very long-term cycle of changes in basic domestic structure. The Pluto square can be an intense but empowering period. You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career or personal life–one that reflects more of the “true you”. Your connections to family members can also change on a fundamental level, in terms of responsibilities, support, or roles. You may experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your family relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year in which you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it. You could have problems staying calm, cool, and collected at times. Buried resentments come to the fore and demand to be dealt with. Avoid focusing on regrets or dead-end situations, as the tendency to obsess over things that can’t or shouldn’t be changed runs very high. By the time this transit ends, you are more equipped than ever to go after exactly what it is that you want in life. Superficial areas of your life will be removed or transformed, and you are freer to express your authentic self.
The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar second house until August, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through learning about your values and self-worth. Personal income, possessions, and values are in strong focus. You need to learn to depend on yourself and to establish your self-worth through your own efforts.
Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your solar second and eighth houses. 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. Some re-shuffling of money and resources may be in order. In October, a Lunar Eclipse in Aries turns your attention to partnerships, negotiations, and compromise.
Especially form May to November, there can be some challenges balancing partnership needs and the demands of home and family. You can feel tugged in a number of directions, and feel that you have little time to pursue to your own personal goals during this period. It can be difficult to count on others or on circumstances, as changes seem to be thrust upon you. Avoid reacting too quickly, and instead listen to your heart.
This year, some material benefits may be coming from your career as well as real estate or family. Alternatively, you may have more resources to invest into your career or business, as well as into your home and property. You may find that you are more able to earn a living from what you love doing this year. Your public image is quite important to you in 2013. Being in a position of responsibility or authority is something you place a high value on. Perfecting your particular craft is natural this year. Some of you may find that your career is moving towards a more service-oriented direction. Practical matters are a large focus and are very strong. More security in your job is likely. You are more willing than usual to work diligently for money, and your natural talents are likely to be utilized more in the work you do, and appreciated by others.
