Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Aim high, and get ready to take action. Events and situations that seem to have dragged on endlessly are likely to start moving quickly. As this starts to happen, you must be discerning of the motives of the people who get involved with you. You tend to project your own equanimity onto the world, and fall for the image of those who portray themselves as do-gooders. Most of them are not, and while this is not your business, you don’t want to invite or allow it into your business or your home.

Beneficial people will bring you benefit. They will also tend to speak in a language that you understand, not just on the first day but also into the second and third layers of the conversation. Anyone who brings delays, confusion or chaos is not a beneficial person. Anyone who needs more help than they can offer is there for you to take care of. You may decide to do so, but not under the pretext that they are doing you a favor.

Your success seems to run in cycles, which are associated with the position of the sign Cancer in your solar chart — it’s at the very top. The Cancer New Moon has lit up this angle and helped you orient on your idea of accomplishment. However, I suggest you not be attached to the image of being a nice guy. Rather, take the approach that you gotta do what you gotta do, which is unlikely to be in some way unfair or unjust. However, you must grant yourself the privilege of using determination, cunning and strategy to get your work done.

In the end, you are usually helpful; still, there is caution in your chart this month to carefully evaluate your motives and the various ways that the ends and the means relate to one another. Not everything is OK, but most of your methods and intentions are. Be sure to know the difference.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) —  You have options. You even have good options. Yet what you see will depend on how you feel and what you believe. In other words, your perceptions of yourself and your situation will be what determines what you have available and accessible; what you have to work with. I suggest you begin there. I suggest you be exceedingly careful what you project onto others, including thinking anyone has some advantage that you do not have. Perhaps they do, though this is not a helpful line of approach. Rather, consider your environment generally, as a demonstration of possibilities. Count yourself in, through the process of actively relating to the people around you. Currently, the way of the world — in many facets of business, art and social life — is “every man for himself.” The obvious benefits of collaboration are overlooked, and with that is lost the synergistic power of working together. That means the gains created by sharing resources, and of building what used to be known as a brain trust: the power of collective intelligence. Your chart is ripe for harvesting the benefits of community work, and then giving the resulting profits right back to the neighborhood or the world. Your role is to coordinate the efforts, and to conduct your particular orchestra. As in Chinese medicine, where there is a shortage on one meridian there will be an abundance on another, so guide and balance out resources as you notice these things. Be clear what you need and what you have to offer; notice where there is a lack, or unfilled necessity, and respond appropriately.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Usually when there is a picnic, you’re the one who brings lunch. Perhaps that’s because only you remember what’s supposed to happen. In the coming few weeks, you may be surprised to discover that, by whatever mystery, others are showing their willingness and their ability to be generous. What is essential to this experience is your ability and willingness to receive. There are some for whom it is easier to give; you may be one of them. There are others for whom it is difficult to accept from others. In a world largely made of takers, who proceed on the basis of entitlement, it is not easy to find an ethical position on matters of what is freely offered. It is difficult to find a place of equilibrium on giving and receiving. Yet I suggest you be as generous as you want, and also stay open, as you are shifting into a new environment — what one might describe as a place of low-hanging fruit.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You may soon feel like your life is divinely guided. That would be nice. We have lived through a long time when the world has felt bereft of potential, overrun by fear and fearful people, and where so many good things are vanishing into the past. Yet for you, this seems likely to reverse. This is partly about Jupiter about to manifest in your ever-important 7th house — the one that describes your environment and your partnerships. Jupiter, the fat and happy boss of all the planets, makes its way into this region of your chart in a few weeks. This would be helpful enough, though there are two other factors you can work with. One is that your ruling planet Venus is also on the way, and is in rare form at all times this month. Therefore, position yourself for success: follow your guidance on where to go and what to do. Let yourself gravitate toward those with influence, and make your existence known to them. Yet there is a deeper factor at work. Both Venus and Jupiter will make conjunctions to a subtle planet called Manwë, named for the chief of the gods in the legendarium of J. R. R. Tolkien. Powerful forces are at work right behind the ones you can see and feel. Stay in tune with those influences, and pay attention to who in the earthly realm represents someone from the deeper world.


Planet Waves Weekly for April 15, 2022, for the Libra Full Moon| Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You may not know exactly what you’re feeling or even how you feel; this is often a mystery. Yet don’t let that slow you down. You have abundant energy at the moment, and that is coming from a deep place. You can count on it; it’s not an illusion that your batteries seem charged and your gas tank says full. I would caution you of one thing, however, which is any sense of regret that may creep up on you. This is associated with your ruling planet Venus forming a conjunction to Nessus, the centaur planet that addresses the entire matter of consequences. Don’t let this wrack your mind. If you’ve been hurt, do what you can to heal. If you’ve hurt someone, make amends and take responsibility. That goes a long way these days. Yet neither may be true — so check carefully and let the feeling pass.


Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 — Part 2 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Yours may be the sign where the emotional-physical connection is the closest. Said another way, your physical experience proceeds rapidly from the emotional level to biological sensations in your body. Said another way, if you don’t feel good, you can get sick, so the objective is to feel good. Depending on your circumstances, this is easier said than done. However, it’s good to know about this connection, because when you’re feeling physically out of sorts, you may be able to address this most easily through addressing emotional disturbances. You’re also extremely sensitive to your work environment, which must support your whole being rather than just provide a decent computer monitor. You now have an expanded, unusual opportunity to improve your wellbeing by making adjustments to where you work, how you feel about where you work, and how you feel generally. There are obvious things you’ve been missing, and these are likely to pop into focus once you are willing to actually pay attention to your environment. You may decide to make some major changes: whatever it takes to reduce your stress level, work in a room with natural light, and have some plants around you providing fresh air and good vibes. Be bold about this. You need to act on your own best interests where your health is concerned. Maybe only an astrologer could see how crucial your work environment is to your health and sanity. I would add one other thing, without giving medical advice: you are an excellent candidate for subtle modes of medicine, rather than chemical solutions. This is sometimes called holistic medicine, to which you’re likely to be more responsive than most people you know: for instance, homeopathy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and others. And it’s worth remembering that there is no substitute for fresh air, clean water and work you love.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You are gradually learning to take more (and better) risks, and to not send out the press release about how cautious you are. If you want to have more fun and live a more creative existence, the current astrology is providing you with plenty of opportunity to claim that space and establish that pattern. Particularly where fun, art, adventure and romance are concerned, the pattern is essential. I am sorry there is not a better word that I can think of, so I’ll explain. Tendencies exist both within you and as part of the environment you create in your life. Both are essential when it comes to the facts of your life pertaining to pleasure. The result you get is usually the result that you have set up in advance. Then, like learning how to write, draw or play an instrument, the more you do it, the better you get. Yet the deeper challenge seems to involve not overthinking your desires or your experience. Aquarius is involved in this angle of your solar chart. So where feeling would serve you, ideas have a way of dominating. Where you strive to be solitary, social realities somehow impose themselves. At the moment, your creative theme is collaboration. If you want to play, you get to play with others. Yet choose well, because you won’t be compatible with everyone who shows up. The point of division may be about commitment to going deep, and sticking with the creative process. One by one, people are likely to fall away, and then you can see who you’re left with. The truth is, you don’t need anyone else, for you to do your thing. You only need to return to the work every day, and to find the place where you are happy indulging your curiosity and probing into the unfamiliar and the unknown.


Special Edition for New Moon — March 3, 2022

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Most people don’t know they are trapped in karma that is not of their own making. It’s as if everyone who is born brings all of the unfinished business of the human race into their own life. Such a case could indeed be made from a genetic or hereditary standpoint, or from one centered in the therapy room. You have, however, been burning karma for years, and you are now in the last stage of a process that goes back to around 2008. Circumstances of your life have called for you to be increasingly self-reliant, both emotionally and financially. But even that has its limits. You don’t live on the planet alone, and there is no efficiency in “going it alone.” Events of the past two years have done little other than push people apart and cut them off from one another. This violates everything from the spiritual essence of your life, to the common-sense notion that we are all in this existence together. Humans form families, tribes, villages and other forms of community to support one another, not to exclude one another. Therefore, bring people in by asking for the help you need, and offering what you can.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Your life seems more complicated than it is. It is true that you are facing a diversity of personal challenges, and are starting to get restless after being confined for so long. You have lived on nonstop shifting ground; you may marvel that your cups and dishes stayed on the shelf all this time. Yet the seemingly broken pieces of your life are now reassembling themselves, or they will, if you let them. In many ways, this depends on your emotional state, or said another way; there is an emotional component to the healing process. It’s a little like gaining the confidence to walk after a cast comes off your leg or a sprained ankle has finally healed. There is always the chance of re-injury, so you must test your strength carefully. While work matters may have seemed like a hot mess, imagine that plants are beginning to sprout in a climate-controlled greenhouse. Make sure they have enough water and light, but not too much, and let them grow. With the spirit of allowing, much that is good and new can come into your life. Now for the essence: in the simplest way possible, focus one creative project, and one relationship. The two do not need to be related, though they may be. What they have in common is you, and what you’re doing now. While certain elements of the past and present are taking care of themselves, there are a few that represent new territory and that you want to operate in fully manual mode. Starting with the relationship: it’s the one where you have a shared concept of necessity and healing. It’s the one where you have an agreed-upon agenda that you work toward daily. You will recognize this one because it’s easy to agree on both the underlying goals and the strategy toward getting to them. As for the creative project, this may have nothing to do with your usual work priorities or your financial objectives. It is a creative project for its own sake. This will serve to distract you from annoying problems and give you something to work toward. Choose something you value highly and truly love and you will cultivate those feelings.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You want things to make sense. But the sense they ultimately make is unlikely to be the one you want, and if so, you will need to acknowledge that. Said in philosophical terms, there is no a priori rationality, or unlooked-for logic. Whatever sense something may make is true only on a level you don’t usually inhabit, and where you probably don’t want to live. You can approach this by asking yourself a series of questions, which amount to a test of your environment, topic by topic. This applies to every relationship. The first and most significant is: how does this matter work out in the context of healing? Does this [whatever] help or does this harm? How do you know? How do all parties feel and what facts do they make available? Next, what role does fear play? How would this topic shake out were there no influence of anxiety? Then: what is the role of coercion or of force? If there were nobody under pressure to act a certain way, and therefore free to make their own choices, how would the situation present itself? Finally, what is the maturity factor? This may seem subjective, though it is subject to critical analysis. Maturity considers multiple factors; it allows for complex analysis; and there is a real conversation. You may safely consider every situation in your life to be in some way related to healing, and that is the starting point. That can set the tone and it can set the purpose. There is no better, at this time. Creative purposes count as healing, as true creativity is always an expression of love. One last note for now: teachers are arriving in various forms, and you may not recognize certain ones as such. Certain people who may seem irritating or who possess a ‘gadfly’ quality need special attention. Once you begin listening, and engaging in a dialog, your perception of them is likely to change. Let’s take this back to the beginning: arriving at a mutual sense of things is a process of exploration, with certain criteria to guide you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Your ruling planet Venus is approaching the end of its retrograde phase in Capricorn.  This is pushing the question of whether and under what circumstances you feel safe. You might also be mulling over your concept of safety and your history with this issue since childhood. Venus retrograde is a review of the past 14 years of Pluto in Capricorn. This one transit has pushed the issue of personal confidence, emotional grounding and finding the ‘safe space’. The evolutionary message of this has been to find the place deep within yourself. Actual safety is often an illusion, a construct or a relative fact (if you are floating in the ocean, a piece of wreckage may be your safety). Yet more than anything, what you are seeking is a degree of confidence that you can handle the various situations in your life. You are looking for the deep connection that you have, at times, established with yourself. While you are in review, I suggest you do some research into your own life. Two other time frames correspond with the one that is wrapping up this year. One is 1993, give or take a few years. The other is late 2001 through 2005. Regarding matters of emotional grounding, and your sense of belonging in your physical and emotional circumstances, how do those times compare to today? What have you learned, and how do you respond in ways that are different to how you responded then? These very weeks, and the few seasons before Pluto enters Aquarius, are a time to assemble the various parts and elements of your experience and what it has taught you. The term for this is “consolidating your learning.” You may be able to distill your whole experience into a very few approaches or ideas that have helped you consistently and dependably, and a few tangible facts. One of them might be, “This is my life.”

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — It looks like the family came to stay for the holidays and nobody ever left. That, or they scattered your home with all their vibes, and depending on who is involved, you may need to smudge the place with frankincense and sage. This same angle of your chart relates to your emotional state, particularly the question of whether you feel safe on the planet, and within your four walls. This is a complicated issue for you right now, and for many people. We have all been living under siege, and I don’t hear enough people questioning the nature of the threat, or the damage that can be done to people — especially children — living in a state of cortisol-infused fear for years on end. If you are ever making an assessment of whether your insecurity or fear are justified, ask yourself whether there is an actual immediate threat in your presence. This requires using, rather than bypassing, rational, logical thought. In all matters of health and wellbeing, this is essential for you. Libra Sun and rising is the sign orientation that is the most susceptible to mental and environmental influences affecting your actual state of physical health. That is to say, fear, anxiety and stress are harmful to you, no matter who is feeling them; and environmental influences (bad air, poor light, dirty or even meekly toxic space) impact you more than most other people. Your state of mind and of your surroundings are very closely related to your state of wellbeing. This 24/7 fear drill is not helping you in any way, nor is trying to make sense of the specifics you’re being told to worry about. Yet it is easy for you to get drawn in, and you must use the power of your mind to extract yourself. This calls for actual objectivity and the use of some mental discipline, such as logic.
