As 2013 begins, the Sun transits your 4th House of home, family and where you live, Libra. Additionally, Pluto continues its long transit of your 4th House of home, family, motherhood and the past as January opens.
Pluto (slow but powerful change) also begins the year in your 4th House where it has been since 2008. You have noticed a powerful change in this area of your life, Libra. Your family dynamics, where you live, the past, motherhood and all things domestic are highlighted during this transit through your 4th House. It is important to stress that Pluto affects each of us on a different level but still retains the same impact. Bottom line: Your home life will continue to slowly but surely transform into a better and improved overall life with the right love. A soothing home environment and children and motherhood should transform in the lives of all Libras, single and coupled. Love wise, you tend to prefer long term relationships but in 2013, you strike out on your own if not entirely happy at home. If your partner does not keep the home fires burning, then Libra might decide to find someone who does. Expect these areas to slowly but surely change. When all is said and done, Libra will find a perfect home life but there are bound to be some obstacles along the way. Who ever said life was easy, Libra? And remember that we create our own lives. Astrology can be useful in knowing what to expect and working with those energies. Major change is in store in your home life. A move, marriage or divorce or having children are strong possibilities with this placement. Think back to 2008 and see how your home life has changed. What HAS changed, Libra?
Uranus (Surprises) opens the year in your 7th House of marriage, divorce and open enemies. Expect the unexpected when it comes to seeing things you never saw coming in these areas of your life. This planet represents a shock to your system. You could learn secrets about marriage, someone else's marriage or someone close to you could be keeping secrets from you or telling your secrets behind your back. Not to worry, Libra, as you will learn everything you need to know about the culprit. Where you have been stuck in a rut, this planet comes in to shake you up. If you're not in a rut, you might get a serious wake up call when it comes to your personal and professional life. This is not the time to bury your head in the sand when it comes to unexpected news, whether this news pertains to you or someone you're close with. Expect an element of surprise when it comes to all properties of the 7th House and realize that partnerships come to your direct attention in surprising ways. Expect NEW friends and new experiences to come out of nowhere where business and personal relationships are involved.
Saturn (Lessons/Structures) is in your 2nd House and you find yourself concerned with collecting valuables and acquiring more money. There could be offers to earn more income during this transit, Libra. You could change your home life during this time and if you're single, a marriage proposal is a strong possibility. Libra finds 2013 to be a year when financial offers present themselves and escalate with Saturn in your 2nd House. Those Libras who have taken short cuts or the easy way out regarding finances can expect to learn some valuable lessons. Those Libras who have worked hard will reap the greatest benefits. The cardinal rule is always at work in your life, Libra. This applies to everyone but you will benefit by adhering to the laws of the physical universe. If you have been honest, hard working and forthright, then expect 2013 to be an important year for finances and will present new offers to make more money. Take all offers you receive ultra seriously as you can make a fortune with Saturn in the 2nd House. It's all related to your past actions leading up to now.
Neptune (Illusions/ What is hidden) continues its transit of your 6th House of health, diet and exercise. The 6th House also rules your daily routines. This is a good time to pay strict attention to your health, as you might not be seeing your overall health clearly, Libra. With Neptune, you may have difficulty with issues regarding your health and daily work routine when it comes to clarifying things. If there is an illness diagnosed, get a second opinion, Libra. Your health can come under a magnifying glass during this time. Neptune is sometimes referred to as the planet of trickery so make sure you see things as they really are. It's time to face the music where your mind, body and spirit are involved, Libra.
Escapism can backfire on you so be mindful when consuming alcohol or experimenting with other ways of escapism via your health. Avoid addictions, as the urge to escape will be quite intense. Neptune also involves alcohol and drugs, so be especially careful with your health when it comes to excess in any of the aforementioned areas, Libra.
Jupiter (Prosperity/Expansion) transits Gemini and your 9th House until June 25th, 2013. You notice movement, luck, optimism and expansion in overseas travel, publishing, higher education and people from foreign lands. A note about Jupiter, Libra. This planet can create an OVER abundance of optimism and this could be dangerous. You don't want to get too excited or you could end up disappointed in these areas. You're due for a more comfortable life but you need to utilize a sense of going with the flow and erase any hint of expectations. On June 25th, Jupiter enters Cancer and your 10th House of prestige, career and public recognition. You will be due for major expansion in these areas beginning on June 25th and lasting throughout the next year.
