Huge Energy Shift as Saturn Enters Libra
A new era has officially begun.
Saturn has just entered Libra for the long haul until 2012.
This is a major paradigm shift and you should be able to feel the energy change. I have been feeling the energy shift for the last week and a half already. Things feel different and a whole new bunch of issues have intensified.
All of those with Saturn in Virgo have OFFICIALLY finished their Saturn Returns. Well done Cosmic Graduate! It has been a long road.
Now the trick is to not forget what you've learnt during Saturn in Virgo while leaping forward into this new energy.
The following guide is for everyone but even more so for those undergoing their Saturn Return at the moment with Saturn in Libra in your natal chart.
Relationships and The Other
Saturn in Libra provides an excellent opportunity for us to focus on our relationships and see whether adjustments can be made so that they become more satisfying. It’s a good time to reflect and ask ourselves questions such as: Are my relationships fulfilling? Am I being authentic? Is my partner? Are my friends? Does my partner accept me for who I really am and vice versa? Are my relationships balanced and fair?
The way that you relate with others and who you relate with, will be placed under a microscope in order to assess the basic structure of your personal community.
Saturn in Libra is the perfect time to realistically assess your relationship and see whether it has a future or not. You might have a strong urge to structure it more formally, such as getting married and require conscious decisions from both of you as to where it is going. One or both of you will want to set some longterm goals.
If the relationship is unfairly restricting you, limiting you or not honouring your true self, you might decide to bust out, or if you stick your ostrich head in the sand, your partner might do it for you.
In fact, this energy is extremely strong right now, as Saturn has just entered Libra again. The flaws in your relationship are strongly accented. Make a wise, conscious choice whether to start a fresh paradigm in a stale relationship or move on.
You and your partner need to be fully present and honest to make things work. You cannot go on being a people pleaser anymore.
Speak up! Assert yourself! Robots aren't very good at real relationships.
Mating, Dating and Relating
If you've been messing about for the last umpteen years in unsuitable relationships with no futures, Saturn in Libra could just very well see you get involved in a serious relationship with the loveliest person you could dream of.
Before you get to this point though, you will have to GET REAL about who you are and about what mask you show the other. Take the mask off and attract a partner who is right for you.
When Saturn drops a "relationship assignment" in your path, it will take work to keep the relationship going.
It can't just exist on champagne, dreams and dancing shoes. The effort that you both put in to compromise, balance and authenticity will allow you to mould a beautiful, life-affirming relationship for the two individuals involved in this adventure.
How can you both be content at the deepest level if you don't know who the other really person is? You might need to drop your defences and bare your soul. Shake off the toxic facade of old-paradigm set-ups and be your real self. If your partner cannot handle it, maybe they are not right for you.
If you cannot work with others, you might come under considerable difficulty at work. This is not a good time for the boss who wants everyone to work separately and then throw your efforts into the pot at the end. You will need to brainstorm together from the start and help each other along the way. You will fuel each others' fire this way.
Justice, fairness and equality will prevail. Your business partnership will require integrity and mutual values in order to flourish.
