Hello Libra!

Join host and astrologer, Kelli Fox, to find out all about Libra. Libra is symbolized by the Scales, which are all about balance — Libra’s lifelong pursuit. This sign is happiest when everything around it is in equilibrium; when everyone is happy and getting along, and there are no major injustices making life seem less sweet.

The Sun moving into Libra coincides with the fall equinox in the northern hemisphere and the spring equinox in the southern hemisphere. The Autumn Equinox occurs around September 21 each year, when the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Libra and the autumn season officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere.

During the Autumn Equinox, the Sun rises due east and sets due west, no matter where on the planet you are. Days and nights are just about equal. Autumn marks the lengthening nights and darkening skies. Trees change colors as the leaves fall to the ground. The energy in the air has shifted from the extroverted, free-spirited nature of summer fun to a quieter, more reflexive foreshadowing of winter.

This week, we also have a Full Moon which means you may see some of your efforts beginning to pay off. You could receive recognition for your spirited, enthusiastic preliminary work on recent endeavors. Your leadership qualities may also be commended for rousing the troops in an effort. However, in your desire to be the head of the pack, you may run into resistance from others who believe in group consensus. You might need to be more of a team player.

The Planets This Week: September 10, 2018

What do the planets have in store for this week? We have a New Moon in Virgo, love planet Venus moving into Scorpio and action planet Mars in Aquarius.

On Sunday the 9th, the Virgo New Moon turns us toward more serious matters after a period of playful indulgences has passed. Many of us may be mulling over the nuts and bolts of our daily life. Work may be a concern or perhaps a health matter, or even how to run our lives more efficiently. During this time, we should evaluate the areas that need improvement. Making to-do lists and clearing clutter is the best use of this influence.

Love planet Venus moves into Scorpio where it will be until October 31st. This is an extra long Venus cycle as it will be turning retrograde on October 5th. While Venus is in Scorpio many of us may find ourselves longing for deep intimacy and intense passion. We won’t have much patience for superficial connections or casual dating, preferring to relate to a few close friends and one significant other. When we get involved, we will want to give all of ourselves and reveal the very core of our being.

If you’re in a partnership, this could be an excellent time to deepen your bond and strengthen your sense of trust. But you may need to work through some of the shadow sides of Scorpio to get there — jealousy, abandonment and betrayal.

Mars will be moving into Aquarius so we may find ourselves asserting our independence and individuality. We will long to break free from other people’s expectations of us and want to experiment with expressing more of our authentic self, taking the risk of letting your eccentricities show.

The Planets This Month: September 2018

September begins with an air of thoughtfulness and hard work. Mercury moves into Virgo on September 5th so rational thinking is favored over subjective feelings. A day later, Saturn turns direct in determined Capricorn, so it’s very much back to business. After an industrious week, some of us may be prone to some negative escapism when the Sun opposes Neptune on September 7th, but we’re making progress and that’s what counts.

The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th, turns us toward more serious matters after a period of playful indulgences has passed. Many of us may be mulling over the nuts and bolts of our daily life. Work may be a concern or perhaps a health matter, or even how to our lives more efficiently. Also, on this day, Venus moves into jealous, manipulative and sometimes vengeful Scorpio. The following day, warrior mars moves into Aquarius to complete a very long cycle that started in May.

With Mercury opposing Neptune on September 13th, there’s a lot of confusion in the air and it’s difficult to be sure of people’s motives. Mars squares up to Uranus for the last time this year on September 18th, so tempers may flare once more, especially over love.

Fortunately, the last ten days of the month have a much more positive vibe. Mercury moves into Libra on September 21st bringing us a light-hearted and laid-back approach to life. The Sun follows suit the next day, heralding the Fall Equinox, a time of balance and harmony. An Aries Full Moon on September 24th is indicative of fresh optimism, enthusiasm and a sense of fun. It is square to Saturn, however – a gentle reminder that while we’re enjoying life, we do still have responsibilities.

The Planets This Week: August 27, 2018

The astro weather of the week is action planet Mars finally turns direct after more than six weeks of being retrograde. Under this influence, we’ll want tangible, measurable results — concrete evidence of our efforts. We’ll be a paragon of pragmatism now and aren’t likely to make a move unless you’ve thought through all the possible outcomes. We might have a tendency to being too cautious or even fearful, missing out on a golden opportunity. We need to trust our instincts to guide us toward cautious risks.

Mars turned retrograde in Aquarius on June 26th and continued its backward movement in Capricorn until August 27th. This retrograde period could have indicated anger and temper issues, and these feelings may have been turned inward instead of being openly expressed. This could have led to all sorts of unfortunate effects, including temporary depression. Initiative may be thwarted during this time but the good news is that plans and progress can start to move full steam ahead!

Also, this week, there’s a Full Moon in Pisces. During this time, we may be feeling more compassionate about the way we’ve touched other people’s hearts. Romance is especially highlighted with this bright moon, so make sure to indulge in plenty of candlelight and kisses. Great joy can come from spending time with those you love. As the moon begins to wane, many of us might want to spend time alone in meditation, getting in touch with ourselves on a deeper level than we usually make time for. We may have some marvelous psychic visions that can guide us in the future. It’s a great time to replenish our spirit for the next cycle ahead.

The Planets This Week: August 20, 2018

The big news of the week is the Sun moving into Virgo! This show is dedicated to all you Virgos! While the Sun is in Virgo you could find yourself working hard to improve yourself and serve others. You might become more critical, and possibly judgmental, as you notice all the things that could be better, both in your own life and in the world. You have a strong desire to make a positive difference and are willing to dig in and get busy to make it happen.

Watch out for being too hard on yourself, or on your loved ones. The desire for perfection can be a great motivator, but if your standards are too high, you could be prone to disappointment and disillusion. You might become aware that you need to improve your skills to accomplish your goals. Don’t be too proud to ask for the help you need to polish and perfect your talents. This can be a great period for finding a mentor and undergoing some kind of apprenticeship.

Health and self-care come into focus, and you might pay more attention to your daily routines and habits. What’s not working about your schedule will become apparent, and you’ll have more motivation than usual to make positive changes that increase your overall well-being. Your system — especially digestion — could be extra-sensitive, and a simple, wholesome diet will probably serve you best.

To counter the tendency to be hyper-critical, make a point of appreciating the little things in life, and “find God” in the details of your daily existence. Washing the dishes can be an irksome chore or a mind-expanding meditation, depending on your attitude.

The Planets This Week: August 13, 2018

The astro headline of the week is Mars retrograding back into Capricorn while the dreaded Mercury retrograde finally turns direct at the end of the week.

While Mars is in Capricorn and depending on how this influence affects your birth chart, you’re driven to succeed. You’ve got the discipline and focus to achieve your ambitions, and you’re not afraid of hard work. Success is a high priority for you now, and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get to the top. In fact, you might have a tendency to be more calculating than usual, and at worst, people could accuse you of being ruthless. Be sure to consider other people’s feelings in your quest for success, otherwise you could find yourself “lonely at the top.”

During this transit, you want tangible, measurable results — concrete evidence of your efforts. You’re a paragon of pragmatism now and aren’t likely to make a move unless you’ve thought through all the possible outcomes. You might have a tendency to being too cautious or even fearful, missing out on a golden opportunity. Trust your instincts to guide you toward cautious risks.

Also, Mercury changes direction which means we can all breathe a sigh of relief as it starts to pick up pace once again in the sign of Leo. Depending on how this transit influences you personally, you may be great fun to be around, stimulating warm and lively conversations and interacting easily with other people. For this reason you have the potential to be quite popular and may receive many party invitations, since you’ll light up the scene no matter where you are.

The Planets This Week: August 6, 2018

The cosmic headline of the week is the intense Solar Eclipse in Leo! We also have love planet Venus moving into Libra and unpredictable Uranus turning retrograde in Taurus.

The third Solar Eclipse of 2018 happens on August 11th with the Sun at nearly 19 degrees Leo. Leo calls us to fulfill our heart’s desires and fully express who we are as individuals, without shame and without a second thought. We are to celebrate what makes us all special. The eclipse creates a sense of urgency to do this, though little with Leo feels urgent — more like dramatic.

Also, this week, love planet Venus moves into Libra where it will be until September 9th. Under the influence of Venus in Libra your social life could be in full swing. Gracious manners come naturally to you now, and your charms are irresistible.

If you’re single, you may long to be in partnership, and might even compromise your ideals, preferring to be coupled up than to be alone. You’re also more likely to see the good in everyone, so you’re less critical of potential mates. If you’re in a relationship, this can be a sweet time for rekindling the romance and bringing out the best in each other.

Uranus in Taurus will turn retrograde on Tuesday and will shake up our ideas of money, property, and values, possibly transforming these things, whether we want it or not. Uranus is the planet of unpredictability and will be in Taurus for the next seven years. What make it more intense right now is that it is forming a tense square to angry Mars which is currently retrograde!

The Planets This Month: August 2018

August is a rollercoaster ride of important transits this year. The good news is that although the month starts off with a lot of tensions and potential drama, it concludes with two of the most positive weeks we’ve seen for a long while – so hang on in there!

The month starts as it intends to temporarily go on, with an explosively angry Mars-Uranus square on August 1st. On the 6th, a square between the Sun and Jupiter, the planet of excess, makes it even tougher to control emotions. Venus moves into diplomatic Libra the same day, which helps a little, but overall tempers are likely to continue to flare. Uranus adds to the pressure cooker atmosphere, turning retrograde on August 7th and forcing many of us to face our fears.

However, a New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse on August 11th falls in generous Leo, heralding a much more positive shift in energy. By the time Mercury turns direct on August 18th many of us will be feeling much happier. On the 19th, a magical Jupiter-Neptune trine blesses us with enormous abundance, creativity and compassion.

August 25th brings a stunning earth grand trine aspect between the Virgo Sun, Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This is highly constructive and positive energy, which each of us can use to move forwards. On August 26th, a spiritual and creative Full Moon in Pisces adds to this impetus and just one day later Mars turns direct in can-do Capricorn – so despite a rocky start, August looks set to end on a fantastically upbeat note with the promise of good things to come.

What a busy week we have! The Sun moves into Leo so this show is dedicated to all you Leos! There is also a very powerful Lunar Eclipse on Friday and yet again we have the dreaded Mercury Retrograde starting on Wednesday.

Under the bright light of the Leo Sun during the next few week, many of us may find ourselves longing for recognition. We now want to stand out and be seen and appreciated just for being our unique self. We may become more aware of what makes us special — our talents, personality, and past experience — and we want other people to notice too!

Creative energy is strong, and this is a great time to devote to artistic passions and stoke our creative fire. Drama is Leo’s specialty, and when the need for self-expression isn’t honored, melodrama can result.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Friday brings a conflict between self-expression and the collective but with more emphasis on the collective and what’s good for all humanity. A detached, progressive, contrarian, future- and technology-minded Moon may be just what the world needs to help us all detach from our personal dramas. The Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius reminds us that we’re all just one of seven billion people on Earth, and that we are our brothers’ keepers.

Also, this week, we have yet another Mercury retrograde but this time it’s in Leo! This influence triggers passionate displays of expression that are sure to cause reactions from you and from others. This fiery planetary influence inspires more emotion behind words and thoughts, which inspires passionate responses, which in turn, ignites the airspace with electricity.

An Interview with Dr. Laura Tadd, Professional Astrologer and Author

As a social scientist and internationally known astrologer, Dr. Laura Tadd has found an astrological perspective to be unparalleled when it comes to helping us heal from the past, access our potential and lead deeply fulfilling lives. One of her arias of greatest focus is the parent and child relationship. She is currently working on a book expanding on her e-book – Stellar Parenting: Enriching the Parent and Child Relationship – found on her website www.mythicsky.com.

The parent-child relationship is profoundly nuanced. Consequently, any attempt at a universal parenting theory is doomed to fail. It is not that parenting is without constants. All children need love, and research has shown the importance of physical affection; even the youngest of children need touch to thrive. But, if we hope to raise freethinking individuals who flourish in ways unique to them, we must tailor how they are parented.

The addition of an astrological view helps a parent understand their child and their relationship with them. It illuminates there are points of ease; where they push their child’s buttons and where their child pushes theirs. Likewise, astrology can aid a parent in mundane things, like individualizing study habits, as well as more complex challenges such as bullying on the playground.

Families operate in a systemic way, and when one member changes the whole family is impacted. Applying an astrological perspective, not only deepens one’s understanding of their child and their relationship with them, but it is also an unparalleled tool for adults to understand, improve and heal their relationship with their family of origin.
