With the Sun now in Libra, one would expect the mood to be a bit bright and fresh and pinkish and filled with sunshine, like a detergent commercial. But with Pluto moving direct, ready to get back to its full-time job of blowing things up, there’s a strange intensity in the air. Believe it or not, these two very different forces can be made to work together. This week: Treat your life like a movie script, and plot the best possible ending for yourself.
Astrology deals in archetypes, and combining the imagery of Libra and Pluto makes for some interesting results. Think of an “archetype” as a film genre. If you’re an optimist at heart, this week brings new life and new energy to your relationships despite some obstacles … like a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy. If not (or if the relationship you have in mind needs breaking, not mending), you might prefer to think of this week’s conditions as “Plibra the Two-Headed Relationship Beast” because, let’s be honest … some love lives need dramatic action in order to end all the screaming.
Whether or not this turns out to be a romantic comedy with a happy ending or a low-budget scare-fest is up to you.
The Sun in Libra is climbing towards a square with Pluto in Capricorn. This makes for a clash between Egos — who in this case are more motivated than usual by their relationship status — and some major forces that, although necessary, are rarely comfortable to deal with. Nothing in life stays static for long, but under these circumstances changes can be dramatic, exciting, and even explosive.
Venus trine Jupiter on Thursday makes emotional circumstances sweet and pleasant, overall. It’s a bit like a warm and sunny day in late Summer that is appreciated but easily overlooked … and then the next day the weather turns lousy, and you find yourself wondering why you didn’t go out for an autumn picnic while you had the chance. Interpersonal relationships that need smoothing over can benefit from gentle action taken at this time.
Venus square Mars on Saturday drives relationship action in its own way, often making for the impulse to socialize, enjoy activities, express yourself, or get sexy with it. Depending on which kind of action your life needs the most of, make time for it, set the stage, and let it happen.
Mercury enters Scorpio on Sunday. No matter how things have gone for you this week (or which way you’ve tried to nudge things), now is the time to get serious about the results you want and to clearly communicate your needs to those who need to know about them.
So: the players are standing on their marks, you have the plot outline in hand, and you know where you want this story to go. Annnnnd…. action!
