Areas of Expansion in 2014 for Libra: Career, Reputation, Friendships, Groups, Causes, hopes
Your Libra 2014 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until July 16, 2014, your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation continue 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. Word of mouth could be critical for you professionally during this period.
There may be difficulties with a family member or partner who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life, particularly in January-February and April.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. February to May can be especially strong for practical matters, business, financial improvement, and recognition for past hard work as well as natural talents and skills.
From July 16th onward, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships expand and grow.
This is a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might over-estimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase.
Potential negatives: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often. There may be difficulties with a family member who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your friendships and causes, particularly in early September.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base, and to dream up exciting new paths for the future. Some of you could be meeting a partner through a friend, partnering with a friend, or enjoying improved relations with a significant other, particularly from September forward. This influence will be in effect until August 2015.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Finances, Values
Your Libra 2014 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 again this year 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 off and on until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born (if you were born early or later in the sign of Libra).
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 from May to August, when a boost in your position could also be recognized financially. Many of you will be investing in your home and family in 2014. 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 2014 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 2014 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 February, April, and December, when disagreements about or with family can surface. Relationships can be unpredictable at these times.
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.
Starting in September, very strong energy is with you for doing all of this, however, and you could be treated to a very friendly, progressive period. This is a time for exploring, taking healthy risks on a social level, and letting go of pre-conceived ideas of what friendships and relationships “should” be.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Family, Inner Foundations, Home Life, Finances, Personality, Partnership
Your 2014 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. February can bring especially rewarding change and development to your home life, as you are particularly wise about what needs to go and what needs to stay. Building your “nest” comes into strong, positive focus. More challenging periods are possible in January, April, and December, when there can be sudden events or circumstances that leave you feeling a little insecure. Conflicts involving career and partnership are possible.
In 2014, 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.
As well, your personality and your partnerships are evolving in important ways. How you define “me” and “you” is transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore in 2014. Matters surrounding personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. Basically, you will be learning to stand on your own two feet! For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For many, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into focus. Nevertheless, with the North Node in your sign virtually all year (from February forward), your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity.
