Libra Monthly Horoscope for June 2020
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Around the beginning of Venus retrograde in May, you seem to have to put a precious long-term goal on hold, for the sake of a much larger goal. This has brought out another side of your nature, one that may have been sleeping for a long time. It’s possible you faced a similar circumstance around 2012, though not even close to the test of faith that you’re experiencing today.
It’s good that you have help. Saturn in Aquarius, now through July 1, and beginning again in December, will help you focus your talents, and create the support systems that you need.
Whatever you’re doing is part of something else much larger, though it may not feel like it at the moment. Start on a small, limited scale, organizing no more than three other people toward a common purpose. Start with a modest goal that feels more like “let’s do this right” than “let’s save the world.” Then learn from the experience.
Then take what you learned, and replicate it. Systemize it. And learn from your mistakes, each of which will pop open a little door of consciousness.
Meanwhile, someone who enters your life will begin with one role and end up with another. Don’t get too attached, whether your response is initially negative or positive. Move with the person at the same time you assert leadership over your life. You may need to push back a little, or set some boundaries. You’re available for some things and not for others.
Pay attention to how this person tries to influence you, and how they relate to the rest of their environment. Note the differences. You are likely to get a look at their true colors and true purpose around the time of the Mars-Chiron conjunction in your opposite sign on July 14. This is a potentially glorious moment of teaching and learning.
Sign Description for Libra
(Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Your sign is about beauty in its many forms. No matter what a Libra does, it’s got the intention of elegance. Everything is considered in terms of its presentation, which is not at the expense of quality; the presentation enhances the quality and vice versa. But appearances count, and you’re unlikely to respect anything that’s not done both with care and the appearance thereof.
That also means you can hold yourself to a high standard and push yourself in a way that you rarely reveal to others. Their criticism can seem harsh to you because you’ve likely already seen any issue that someone points out and have addressed it in your own quiet way. Libra holds space for an ideal that can only be emulated on this plane of reality.
Nothing quite lives up to it; that may be the reason for the famous quality of ‘indecision’ behind your sign. You recognize that there is no perfection, and alternates all have their advantages and disadvantages. The most important thing you can learn is how to decide, and most often you do that on a gut level. You ‘just know’ something and sometimes you think you’re a bit psychic as a result.
Your outer appearance is often deceiving in that it veils your inner intensity. I call Librans the ‘human blowtorch’, because you can be cool, calm and quiet, and then turn into creative powerhouses when you are motivated to turn up the gas. Libra is the sign associated with the concept of justice, which is the meaning of the scales.
You have a sense of fairness and equanimity that is alien to many people around you. Yours is also one of the primary signs associated with relationships and relating, which are important priorities for you and which must be conducted in the spirit of ethics and integrity. If someone is dishonest, don’t convince yourself to trust him or her.
At the same time, you must remember not to get lost in your relationships — and remember how to find yourself again when you do. Libra is a cardinal sign, coming at the change of a season, though the initiative of this sign can take some time to come out. Libra is associated with the planet Venus, and Saturn is well-placed here as well. If you want to know more about yourself, study the positions of these two planets.
Venus is likely to be close to your Sun, and Saturn could be in any sign. Most of the signs have one dominant ruling planet that has survived as a carryover from traditional astrology — though Libra has two. Venus is about values and Saturn is about structure and form. To work your astrology, study and learn to master both of these planets.
