You have a lot on your plate this January, but Mars in your mind zone ensures that you're quick thinking and well-organized enough to keep up, Libra. Just as well, because events this month in your career and family life look set to reverberate through the year. A Lunar Eclipse in your career zone of your horoscope on January 10 may bring success, but the emotional cost could be high. Two days later on January 12, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction becomes exact in your family zone, suggesting major conflict between your desire to be there for your loved ones and your desire to succeed at work.
With Venus arriving in your everyday work zone on January 13, career pressures may at ease enough to allow you to catch up with your loved ones - but this is likely to be an ongoing battle, and fundamental change is needed. Start thinking about it now. Mercury shifts into your creativity zone on January 16, and this is very helpful for innovative thinking and new ideas about your current dilemma. Don't be afraid to try something new, or to integrate tech into your daily life to save yourself some time.
A New Moon in your creativity zone on January 24 is full of potential - interestingly, this is sometimes called the risk zone too. Brave, bold decisions made in the final week of January could turn out to be your best move yet.
During 2019, your image – and what other people think of you – will be very important to you; perhaps a little too important. From the very beginning of the year, following a Solar Eclipse in early January, your family may be at loggerheads over a decision you make. Be fair but firm in your family leadership. You’re acting for the right reasons, and other family members will simply have to get on board. Following a Lunar Eclipse in late January, you may find that friends and wider society try to weigh in on your choices too, but again, it’s what you think which really counts.
The northern hemisphere’s spring brings two consecutive Full Moons in Libra, towards the end of March and again at the end of April. You’re re-assessing who you are and how you want to project yourself, and that’s a very positive thing. Don’t be surprised, however, if others feel threatened by your new-found confidence and your individuality. It might not be until late September, when there is a New Moon in Libra, that the fuss dies down – don’t take it too personally.
The northern Winter brings a resolution to the ongoing family-related rumbles – once Jupiter breezes into your family zone in early December, peace will reign. In mid-December, a delightful Jupiter-Uranus trine helps to bring the family together in a big way, healing any past issues and bringing love and laughter in its wake. Although it won’t have been an altogether easy year for family relationships, another Solar Eclipse in late December promises a much easier way forward in 2020.
Your love life in 2019 looks set to be something of a roller-coaster ride, but as your confidence elsewhere you’ll be dictating the ride on your own terms. A very flirtatious phase in late April comes courtesy of the arrival of Venus in your dating zone. However, this comes against the backdrop of a very volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your love zone in February, which could have explosive repercussions. If you play with fire, be prepared to get burnt. Once shock-jock planet Uranus settles into your intimacy zone in early March, too many dangerous liaisons and too much jealousy could prove toxic for a relationship.
If you want to restore peace to an existing relationship, early April is your best shot, with a New Moon occurring in your love zone, enabling a new start if both parties genuinely want it. If you’re single, on the other hand, early April could be when the exotic encounters of early spring settle down into something more reliable. Any relationship which forms around this time will go through a meaningful phase during mid-October, when the Full Moon in your love zone brings something to fruition.
Elsewhere in the northern hemisphere’s fall, Venus and Mars both shift into Libra between mid-September and early October. Prompted to re-examine what you want from a loving relationship, you’ll start to demand the respect you deserve. From this point onwards, you’re in charge. It’s up to you now to either cement what you have or to strike out in favor of something – and someone – new.
Times are changing at work and by the time the northern hemisphere’s spring arrives you may well find yourself in an entirely new working environment. Even if you haven’t changed jobs, your responsibilities terms of employment may have changed, or new colleagues are on the scene. This is something of a challenge, especially once unpredictable Uranus arrives in your secrets zone in early March. Difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune hint at a communications breakdown at work in January, June and September, and in March especially, with Mercury retrograde in your work zone, you may struggle to get along with your work-mates.
A very promising Full Moon in mid-May occurs in your money zone, however, so financial gain is on the way. If you can stick out the difficult transition period, things will settle down. Watch out for a Solar Eclipse in your career zone in early July – there could be a surprise in store. This may come as a shock at the time, but it will be to your benefit in the long run.
The northern hemisphere’s fall looks set to be a rewarding time at work. Luxury-loving Venus shifts into your money zone in early October, helping you to spend any raise almost as fast as it arrives. Fortunately, a New Moon later in October falls in your money zone too, so you should find it easy to increase your income to match your appetites! Once determined Mars arrives in this zone of your chart in mid-November, you will be all set to see out the year with considerable financial success.
How stable are you feeling, Libra? Nice and secure? Good. But prepare to have that challenged to its core in 2020. The year’s major astrological event, a rare conjunction between Saturn and Pluto, rocks your home and family zone, signifying that big changes are on the way: Where you live, how you live, or the way your family dynamics operate. Ultimately these astrological changes will be positive, but it may not feel that way as they unfold, so you may be in for a bumpy ride.
The changes in your family life may find a root cause in career changes, as suggested by the Lunar Eclipse in January in your career zone, which is swiftly followed by the Saturn-Pluto conjunction becoming exact. Once Mercury turns Retrograde in your routines zone in February, and combative Mars arrives in your home zone, you may start to feel that change is inevitable.
In March, Saturn moves into your play zone, but so does Mars, and the conflict between seriousness versus impulsivity may underline that creatively, as well as in your leisure time, everything is being squeezed. Pluto turns Retrograde in your home zone in April, while Venus shifts into your adventure zone, so, Libra, it seems this is definitely a time to reconsider your home base – whether that’s moving home, renovating or simply seeking new pastures. You may find that your initial efforts are blocked, though, with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all turning Retrograde in May. It may not be until a Solar Eclipse in your career zone in June that your astrological path becomes clear. If this does turn out to be a move or a shift in family dynamics connected to your career, it may get off to a rather sudden and rocky start.
Throughout July, the Sun makes a series of oppositions to the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto trio, highlighting conflict between your family life and your working life. There’s also a Lunar Eclipse in your family zone, so dramatic action may be required. In August, Venus shifts into your career zone, so you seem to have made your choice and prioritized your work life at that point – and once the choice is made, the uneasiness around your home life will start to settle down. Much to your relief, no doubt, as Libra doesn’t do conflict!
September’s astrology shows that it takes a while for new routines to become comfortable, with Mars turning Retrograde in your relationships zone, but with Venus in your social zone it’s a light-hearted time, following the stress of the past few months. Don’t be surprised if you still feel itchy feet though, even if you have already moved home, or are planning to – especially in November, when a Lunar Eclipse in your adventure zone urges you to see more of the world.
As 2020 draws to a close, Jupiter moves into your play zone and the stress starts to melt away. A promising Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in this area in late December sets you up to strongly enter 2021 from a more stable and secure base, and with a smile on your face.
The expected upheaval in your family or home life will obviously have repercussions and reflections in your love life too, Libra. If you’re already in a relationship, the good news is that it appears to be strong enough to weather this storm. Despite the Saturn-Pluto conjunction already in force by mid-January, you start the year in a loving mood, and when Venus arrives in your relationships zone in February, that only gets stronger. Be careful that you address issues as they come up though, instead of glossing over them. A tricky square from Venus to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in late February hints that undercurrents of tension do exist.
If you’re single, the early part of the year is not an ideal time for meeting a new partner. With Saturn shifting into your dating zone in March, you may find that your social time is somewhat limited, in any case. In an established relationship, however, Venus’s arrival in your passion zone in March, and Mars’ entrance to your fun zone, suggest that a loving relationship is still going well, despite time constraints and external stress.
It’s probably during May, June and July that your love life will feel most of the tension. When Saturn turns Retrograde in your fun zone in May, love suddenly feels an awful lot like hard work, Libra. In June, Mars moves into your love zone, where it will stay for the rest of the year – this brings passion, but also temper and anger, so it’s a difficult transit to manage. The Sun’s opposition to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in July will further inflame tensions, as will July’s Lunar Eclipse in your family zone.
You may feel that you need to prioritize your job over your family life, especially in August, when Venus shifts into your career zone. To keep your sweetheart on board with this, Libra, be super-clear about why you’re doing it, and what benefits it will ultimately bring to you both. Venus opposes the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto trio during August, so good communication is definitely needed in order to keep things on an even keel.
The good news is that any tension in your love life should evaporate in September, when light-hearted and sociable Venus transits your social zone – it’s a great time for going out with friends and other couples or for getting involved in a joint community project. If you’re single, September is also one of the better months for seeking new love. Venus transits your spiritual zone in October, so it’s a quiet period of reflection, before arriving in your zodiac sign in late October, highlighting your romantic and sociable qualities.
There could be an astrological blip in mid-November when Venus squares up to the Saturn-Pluto mix once more, and accusations of selfishness may fly. However, the arrival of Jupiter in your fun zone in December will do a huge amount of good for your relationship and will help you to rediscover where the magic lies.
At various points in 2020, the powerful Saturn-Pluto conjunction in your home zone is opposed by planets transiting your career zone, so big career changes this year look likely to impact upon your home life – and vice versa. It all kicks off very early in the year with a Lunar Eclipse in your career zone in January, which probably starts you off asking questions about where you’re going and where you really ought to be heading, Libra.
Colleagues and/or your working conditions could become troublesome in February, and with Mercury Retrograde in your everyday work zone at that time, you’ll struggle to keep your temper or to assert yourself in getting what you need at work. When Saturn, together with Mars, moves into your risk zone in March, frustrations at work could easily boil over into other areas of your life. It’s as if you’re pushing to get ahead, but something else is pulling you back and preventing your progress. The astrology suggests that what’s needed is a complete rethink.
It’s in May, when Mars arrives in your everyday work zone, that you’ll find the energy and the motivation to start making necessary changes in your working life. A Solar Eclipse in June in your career zone may prompt dramatic or sudden action, but with Mercury Retrograde in your career zone then, you’ll need to think very carefully before making any major decisions. A Lunar Eclipse in your communication zone in June doesn’t help, so ensure that you’re very clear in what you say on this topic.
Conflict between your career and your family life is rife during July, when the Sun opposes the Saturn-Pluto combination and highlights your competing priorities. Libra hates conflict of any kind, but when Venus arrives in your career zone in August, you’ll find progress at work much easier – and the easier you can move ahead, the more the tension at home will drain away, so hang on in there.
Mercury turns Retrograde in your money and work zone in October, so there is still some frustration there on a day-to-day basis, but overall, the direction of your working life is solid. Watch out for some possible shady dealings though; seek expert advice before investing. Venus moves into your money zone in November, upping your love of luxury and encouraging quite a bit of spending – great if you can afford it, Libra, but avoid going into debt with holiday-related blowouts.
As 2020 draws to a close, your creativity is highlighted, and there are suggestions that you could make a move into a new, more creative career, or perhaps use some of your existing skills to create an exciting side hustle. Jupiter’s arrival in your creativity zone is what makes this possible in mid-December – potentially something very positive to explore in 2021.
