Areas of Expansion in 2015 for Libra: Friendships, Groups, Causes, hopes, Spirituality, Charity, Private Life
Your Libra 2015 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until August 11, 2015, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships continue to expand and grow.
There can be benefits from working in a team, including but not limited to learning about yourself through others. Friends can be especially supportive, introducing you to new ideas or connecting you to important areas of growth.
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, and this can be a stronger potential in February. 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 May and August.
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 until June, and especially from April 9th to June.
From August 11th onward, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve – a cycle that runs until September 2016.
This is generally a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest. With the ruler of your communications sector in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, you could be keeping a lot of your thoughts, personal interests, or projects to yourself during this cycle. For some of you, there can be work on a project in relative solitude or privacy. Your close personal relationships tend to be private and possibly involve some sacrifices.
Potential negatives: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments, and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. In September and November in particular, there can be some strains on health or pressures in a partnership. Difficulties keeping up with daily schedules can be an issue.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you might build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others. October forward is an especially strong period for strengthening ties with family as well as getting into better touch with your inner world and deeper feelings. This is also a good period for material renovations, as well as financial strategy and improvement.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Finances, Values, Communications, Daily Life
Your Libra 2015 Horoscope, Saturn Profile, 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.
From June 14 to September 17, 2015, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach again this year are associated with the sector of your chart 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 is with you for part of this year, from June 14th to September 17th. This is the final haul! It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier 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.
The more difficult potentials of this transit may be realized in June and early August especially, when Saturn is challenged by Pluto and Jupiter respectively. Difficulties financing home life or long-term dreams can be experienced now, or outlook is strained on these things.
Overall, however, 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. Many of you are investing in your home and family. 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.
Until June 14th, and then from September 17th onward, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are associated with the sector of your chart that governs communications, learning, and local transportation. 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 is new for you, having only begun December 23rd, 2014, and will be with you until December, 2017. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Libra. This year, those born in the first four days of Libra are most directly affected.
Challenges can come to your communications. You may feel pressure to produce ideas, and to make them work in the “real world”. A certain somberness in your outlook may be characteristic of this phase, as it could be a time of worry. It may seem like acquaintances and sometimes siblings are blocking your growth in some manner, and these relationships may be strained as a result. Although you have a desire to make contacts, you are now rather preoccupied with learning or other mental projects, and you may view idle chit-chat as a waste of time. You may feel an unusual pressure to structure your time and effort, and to cut out communications that seem unnecessary. You may at times feel rather overwhelmed by such things as errands, red tape, and other such day-to-day “disruptions”. By the end of the transit, however, you will have ideally gained a greater depth of understanding, having focused on information and communication that you really can use to feel more effective in the world.
There is a great need now to structure your life by way of schedules, managing daily details and your time more effectively. There can be some problems with local transportation — getting from point A to point B. There can be some restlessness or an urge to get out and about, but you might feel weighed down by your daily responsibilities.
This can also be a time when communications with family become especially important and critical. There can be issues with mobility and transportation during this transit, and mechanical breakdowns can present challenges. In May and October especially, you may be dealing with unreliability in a close relationship that is interfering with the responsibilities of studying or maintaining a schedule. From November 2015 to September 2016, health matters or uncertainty with work can present new challenges.
However, this is also a time of increased practicality and esteem. You are more reliable than usual. You procrastinate less. Teaching can be in strong focus.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: partnerships
Your 2015 Libra Horoscope, Uranus Profile, 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 2015 and beyond, until March 2019. 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 mid-March, when disagreements about or with family can surface. In early May and October, there can be difficulty communicating effectively with partners, significant others, and possibly the public for some of you. Relationships can be unpredictable.
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.
Until June, 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 2015 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. From October forward 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 February, mid-March, and May, when there can be sudden events or circumstances that leave you feeling a little insecure. Conflicts involving friends and partnership are possible.
In 2015, the Moon’s Nodes and eclipse activity continue to affect your sectors of independence and partnership. 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. Matters surrounding personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. This is a time for 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. With the North Node in your sign most of the year ((until October-November), your challenge is to learn how to rely on yourself, which ultimately will bring you joy and opportunity. This is one of the major keys to happiness in 2015.
As well, and especially in the last quarter of the year, your sectors of spirituality, work, and health are in focus. Watch for bad habits that affect your health. Recognizing your personal limitations in terms of just how much you can give to others and just how much compassion and understanding you can show is essential now. You are also learning to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It’s time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. The North Node in your sector of endings, spirituality, and privacy from October-November forward points to a real need to connect to your inner world, as well as to help and support others, as these things can bring wonderful benefits and much joy to your life, particularly around the eclipses in March and September.
Your Planetary Ruler in 2015: Venus is your planetary ruler. More power to you when your ruler is in your sign, and this year, this period is from November 8th to December 4th. Venus is retrograde from July 25th to September 6th. This can be a period for reflection, slowing down, and perhaps some backtracking. Venus aligns with Mars three times this year, on February 22nd, September 1st, and November 3rd, stimulating passion and increasing your personal magnetism (especially in February).
