A reminder and an overview

First of all, don’t forget the Lunar Eclipse, featuring a Full Moon in Libra, which will be in effect when you read this column. Libra is the sign of relationships, the inner dynamics of person to person encounters and what is and isn’t fair in your dealings with others. Stay calm, don’t cut ties impetuously and take time to think carefully about people in your life and their influence over you. You may need to stop accommodating someone close, or realize the friendship (or something deeper) has completed its course and the two of you are separating so both can grow and choose another path. This doesn’t have to be a negative effect, either. You know when it’s time to reconsider, and if ‘a couple’ no longer describes what is most satisfying for you two, then be adults and part in true friendship.

On the other hand, you could realize the two of you need to grow closer and set new goals, short and long-term. So communicate what each is feeling, what might be the best plan for the immediate future, and then make time to discuss all the options thoroughly before setting out on a new course. Change just for the sake of change, whether due to ennui or the fear of being alone, won’t be what’s best for either of you. Don’t rush. Stop, think, and most certainly, listen.

As another planetary occurrence you don’t want to overlook, remember Saturn (see rendering above) transits Pisces for the rest of this year, moving forward until May, 2025. If your Sun Sign is Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius, you’ll be dealing with possibly new and heavy responsibilities, or figuring out how best to share those responsibilities with others in order to lighten the burden. Saturn is known as the Taskmaster, Father Time or the planet dealing in structure and routine for us all. And this planet will affect each of us. Saturn in Pisces will encourage you to examine your subconscious drives and figure out just exactly what you need in a spiritual sense. You may see true Karma in action, whether on the large international stage or just within the family. Don’t give into feeling lost; you aren’t really, but your inner drives are beginning to reveal themselves and they likely aren’t headed in the direction you thought they would lead you. Eat your vegetables, get up and go to bed at the same time, ignore your blustering ego and work quietly behind the scenes (even without being credited) – and Saturn will reward you for all your hard work.

Deal with yourself kindly, and also deal just as kindly with other people around you. – MZ
