What have you been doing? How come you're living in the middle of a bombsite? It won't clear up itself, you know. And if you think it'll put people off from spending time with you, you've clearly forgotten that your cleaning skills aren't their top priority - they never were. Start by downloading my free list of the 2018 New and Full Moons - you can do some amazing things with it, including timing your New and Full rituals and ceremonies, launching new projects and doing forgiveness work to release negativity which inevitably builds up.
You are the sign famed for being diplomatic and peace-seeking. However as of now, you have angry Mars in your Communication Zone, for the next few weeks. This is a potential problem. Mars is of the "speak first, think later" school which means you are going to be extra challenged when it comes to being nice and saying good things that make people happy. This applies especially but not only at home. You have been warned! Turn up the Libra charm! For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888
Your emotions can be strong at the start of the month, and you can be more open with what you're feeling. Get into your feelings and try to understand why you're feeling what you are. The better you understand that, the easier it'll be to move toward the fun stuff and lighten your mood. You can tend to things at home and help out with your family, or try to be more supportive of the people you care about. If they do a lot for you, you can return the favor a little. Venus, your ruler, makes a nice connection to compassionate, sensitive Neptune early in the month, and this can help you to do even more and be there for others in whatever way they may need you.
Love and creativity can rule as the month goes on with Venus and the Sun entering your love sector midmonth, and Mercury entering to end the month. Focus on what you enjoy doing most, take time to be joyful and playful, and connect to your heart and the heart's of those you love. Be sweet, be generous, be big-hearted, and remind yourself that you should be having fun. Let loose! If you need to do any work or chores, try to make them fun in some way. The more you enjoy what you're doing, the more productive and efficient you can be. Venus gets some love from happy Jupiter and energizing Mars midmonth, and they can get you going.
The month of January ends with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo, and this Lunar Eclipse may bring energy to your friendships, any groups you belong to, or your future dreams. You can grow closer with a friend or become more invested in a group you belong to, and you can be more open emotionally with them. You may also want to think about which dreams for your future you want to become more passionate about, and which you want to set aside for now.
There's a reason why your sign starts with the letter 'L' - because Luscious Libran sounds so good and is so apt! There is probably someone out there who will correct me, but Helen of Troy - whose face launched a thousand ships - was undoubtedly if not a Libran, then a Libra Rising. Yours is the sign of beauty in many ways. Beauty, charm and the ability to wrap others around your little finger. Your sign rules art, tranquility and sharing. How gorgeous is that? You are ruled by Venus and a beautiful expression of her. Without Libra we would have no balance in the stars.
You rule the 7th house of the zodiac which is about partnership and relationship. You're the calm person in the room, the one who's lovely to look at and amusing to listen to. You can usually trust a Libran too - at least you know they will almost always have good intentions. Libra also represents justice. You can see both sides of an argument and you're keen to settle it. Yes, you are accused of prevaricating and have a terrible reputation for being indecisive. But it's those qualities that give you the ability to arbitrate and bring peace into troubled situations.
But if all that sounds just a little bit too sweet for words, remember you are a Cardinal sign. This is the sign of the leader, so it's not as though you spend all your time airy-fairying about wherever the breeze wafts you. It's just that when it comes to going into battle, you instinctively know you've a better chance of success if you can get everyone to disarm through diplomatic relations, so to speak. In fact, Libra is also the sign of the diplomat. You usually know exactly what to say and when to say it, and those around you lap up your compliments like fine wine. And speaking of wine, you have many, many social graces. But as you're an Air sign, going to a party isn't just about nibbling canapes while looking gorgeous. You love to use your intellect socially and give great conversation and, it has to be said, excellent small talk!
One thing to watch out for is that you are always very keen to please others. Make sure you lavish yourself with as much attention as you bestow on your loved ones.
It's also a good idea to keep that infamous indecisive nature under wraps. Some Librans have been known to triple book themselves on a Saturday night. They can't help it. They're popular and they get invited lots of places. But learning to make a decision and stick to it - and learning to say no - is a great ambition for you to include in your list of Life Goals.
