Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — From the look of your solar chart, the sky is about to open up and reveal a vast dimension of potential that you may not have considered possible. It is now essential that you not judge something impossible, or yourself undeserving. In other words, you will serve yourself the best by getting out of your own way. The first part of this exercise involves a careful reevaluation of what you think of as right or wrong. Here is what to check: everything someone else told you was one or the other. All of those imposed judgements require careful reevaluation. You must make your own determination of what is ethical and what is not. To skip this step or to refuse to do so means that you’re allowing others to determine the basis of your own choices, for which you then must take personal responsibility. There is something else going on as well. Many people who impose regulations on others are doing so on the grounds that you cannot have more fun than they do. You might evaluate on this basis every judgment someone has ever placed on you. In fact, success is fun, and in fact, people are jealous of it. Many will think nothing of acting on that jealousy or contempt. You must fly high above this and be the master of your own choices, your own values, and your own truth. In the process, you must make another commitment, which is to do your best to be right. The facts and figures that prove you right or wrong are not an opinion. I suggest you marry yourself to verifiable reality and be meticulous about this from hour to hour and day to day. You are about to be summoned to a higher calling and for that you must be sincere: that is Latin for without error.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2021 | Go To All Signs

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — In nearly every situation that arises this month, there will be the option to hold people to the law, or to negotiate with them. It will be helpful if you take a softer approach, which comes more naturally for you, and which will likely get a better result. This will take less effort on your part than it will accessing a skill you have, which is to speak to people in their own language. It will help, as well, if you do what you can to see the world (and yourself) from their point of view. This is genuine diplomacy: not being two-faced, but rather holding out an open mind and considering multiple perspectives as if they are valid. You don’t really have an idea whether they are until you consider them. While you may feel yourself lacking in flexibility at the moment, if you stretch a little, you will find out just how much you have. One would think that human thought would be one of the most malleable substances in the universe, though often it turns out to be about as soft and flexible as clamshell. However, with Mercury and Venus in Gemini, your 9th house of ideas, possibilities, and philosophical systems, considering all available ideas will bear lavish fruit. You will make friends with those you thought were adversaries. Keep at this practice. Ideological stiffness will set in for much of the world as Saturn makes its way through Aquarius. Most people will be after approval and not want to bother with what is interesting or has some creative integrity. After a while, the ability to actually think and communicate in human terms will be akin to floating on air and flying great distances under your own power — and be as impressive.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2021 | Go To All Signs
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Speaking of mirrors (see Virgo please), planets are gathering for a spectacular Aries New Moon in your opposite house/sign — the realm of partnership. Most significantly, your home planet Venus is among the entities transiting this opposite territory, which is you looking back at yourself from the standpoint of the other, or you looking at yourself in the reflection of your environment. I will include the chart I am using so you can see just how much emphasis is to one side of the figure. This is the angle where you encounter people; it’s the world you see and walk around in. There’s lots going on there, and plenty to explore. Yet when you do, it’s going to feel a little edgy, and just a bit risky. The setup is perfect for you to consider the ways that freedom is thought to be dangerous. The way I read these planets, the freedom in question is the kind associated with being liberated from your self-concepts. This can be shocking, liberating and disorienting; and whatever situation it describes is a chance to surrender some of your moorings that have held you to your notions of who you are. What you need the most is flexibility. To make the best use of these aspects, it would be healthy to embrace a touch of, “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m willing to find out.” Borrowing from Joni Mitchell, another way to say this is, “I don’t know who I am, but life is for learning.” As you explore life under the influence of this astrology, remember the profound question relating to how much of what we perceive is projection, and how much is actual, direct experience. Be aware, at least, that you see everything through your personal filters and lenses of consciousness.

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You might avoid getting overly involved in any drama that emerges at work. It might be difficult, though what you want to be doing is your own style of creative projects. You are heading for a situation where there might be some competition for where you direct your energy. Emotional situations eat creative power. They eat time. So if something seems like it’s heading in the direction of drama, you might take your option and go another way, at least for a while. When this precious month or two is over, you want something to show for your efforts and outpouring of devotion. You have a most unusual opportunity to invest in the creative side of your nature, which has been calling on you to do this for as long as you remember. This calls for rising to a challenge. That means changing some of the patterns of your mind and your use of time such that you structure a place for what you want the most. The challenge here is that under digital conditions, our mental structures and life patterns have become more rigid than ever. We are gradually being convinced to act like robots, and to welcome injections that even the manufacturers say reprogram the immune system. To be creative is to be human. That means being flexible, adaptable and open to change. Mostly that means changing how you think and how you perceive the world. This will come through your relationship to yourself more than to others. The fact that you may face a challenge creating space and time to do what you value the most is revealing of how tight the patterns of your existence have become. Make the effort. You will find the challenge of growth and change to be liberating.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Amidst much other notable astrology, let’s start with Chiron in your opposite sign Aries. This is providing you with a focal point, in a world where everything seems to be going out of control. In the simplest terms, that focal point is that there is such a thing as meaning. This comes through two sources: people who serve your interests, primarily as teachers or mentors; and then from your ability to recognize patterns in your environment. That is all this elusive thing called meaning really comes down to — when set in the context of personal relevance. Chiron is focusing your attention on healing. This is happening in a time when the chaos of the world is being driven by the fear of sickness and death. Anyone could be driven to madness or illness by soaking in this environment, and I have no doubt that much of what is happening is based on over-immersion in fear, chaos and meaninglessness. Take the opportunity to learn from those who have ideas, and who set a wholesome example. At this time in your life, one or two such relationships will keep you grounded in your purpose and in your sanity. You will also be able to learn how to serve others. The quality that you’re looking for is fearlessness when it comes to approaching the challenges of life. This is exceedingly rare, so it should stand out from all the glare and noise. And of course, you would need to understand that the lack of fear, and the refusal to be ruled by it, is not about being a fool. It’s about having a holistic understanding of life, which above all else you need to embrace. The whole is far greater than the sum of the parts, and the particles.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #260 for January 19, 2021

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — The Sun’s ingress into your fellow air sign Aquarius will come as a relief. It’s always good to have the Sun in your element, though the thing is, you have so much more there at the moment — Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and the meaningful asteroid Pallas. The question of what to do with all this creative energy is a real one. You currently have enough for the next eleven people, and as many ideas. What the Sun moving through this region of your chart can provide is energy for expression, and light so you can see what you are doing. The essence of the moment is experimentation. The world is currently developing a bad case of rigor mortis from all of social and artistic life being smothered. You need to move and breathe and keep reminding yourself of all the reasons you have to be alive and to be creative. You know that you’re healthy when you’re feeling well, that is, when you’re positive and involved. Avoid health dramas of any kind — and know what they are. Get out the paints and turn on your amp. Get ready to test your theory, in real space, and in real time.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #259 for January 11, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You seem to be struggling for emotional freedom. You can have it, if you understand what it is: it is freedom from the past. The past means living as if what happened to you historically is still happening. This may go back to your childhood and even to the experiences of your immediate ancestors. It does not help that our world teaches obsession with the past, and insists that people trap themselves in ideas that no longer work, and never did. Right now we are all witnessing a vast struggle for power and control, rather than a quest for wellbeing. That is likely to be an old, old story in your family, and if you’re wondering where your freedom went, if you’re wondering why you don’t feel better, consider this distinction. Once you do, you will recognize how few others are doing so. You may catch a glimpse at the astonishing codependent drama of what people are doing to one another in the effort to make themselves feel safe. Not to be well. Not to be whole. Not to share life. And those things, you want.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #258 for January 7, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Whatever you’re doing will benefit from collaboration. Yet this is unlikely to be about any large group or collective but rather with an individual. This may be as little as a single conversation that focuses your mind, a relationship with a teacher or mentor, or someone you are called upon to assist. Rather than focusing on that, or on creating that, stick to what you’re doing for its own sake. The aspect of your being that I’m describing is not the one that moves out of a sense of duty, but rather true inner motivation. The notion of for its own sake is all but lost. This is a close cousin of it’s the thing to do at the time, which will also serve. Don’t involve yourself with outcomes; rather, stick to what feels right. This may end up being something you could describe as the path of least resistance. You may feel like you’re being carried. It may not be possible to predict the outcome, though that’s no reason to hesitate.

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Above all else, things must make sense for you — which will likely be a challenge at this stage of human history and in the history of your life. Yet help has arrived, in the form of stabilizing influences in your fellow air sign Aquarius. There have been many over the centuries who have discovered that if the world makes no sense, their creative life can, and must. That is where you are today. By creative, I mean any form of what you make, or invent, for the sake of doing so. This may be part of your livelihood (i.e., how you make your money), and it may not be. For most, it pertains to what they do for its own sake. This is not a luxury. It never was, though for you it’s a necessity now more than ever. You are fortunate that you have a place to concentrate your psychic energy and your need to keep your mind active. You have the ability to focus on beauty and healing. You may already be doing this; many readers of this column are artists and some are working artists. Value that gift that you have and that you’ve received. If you are on the line, if you’re distracted, if you’re going in circles, stop and focus, and draw your energy into some creative process. That is your zone of sanity; your place of stabilization; and it will turn out to be, where you rebuild your social life and sense of community. You may need to start modestly, though commit to making the investment of time, space, energy and any inconvenience you incur from needing to rearrange things. The space part of this is crucial: having a designated place to do what you do. It may be a spare room, the attic, or a table. Make a place for yourself.
