The year begins with you committing more to your home life. A solar eclipse on January 5th brings a new domestic beginning, while the lunar eclipse on January 21st sees you leaving behind certain networks and affiliations that have kept you away from home. Parenting yourself is now a top priority, Libra. Social engagements, group events and organizational activities can only be pursued after you have attended to domestic responsibilities.
The pressure to nurture yourself and loved ones be felt throughout the spring and beyond. Boundaries may be necessary if you begin to experience emotional strain; this will be especially true in March as increased responsibilities begin to fill your plate. Important others may be heavily reliant on you to do their chores and attend their needs. You are only one person, Libra. If you are experiencing stress and interruptions to your own schedule, remember those boundaries. Daily affairs will become more manageable as we reach the month of April.
You may also find the spring months to be rather liberating. If you are reliant upon financial assistance and other contracts that offer material resources, you may try to remove yourself from such agreements as you identify ways to invest in your own set of priorities. “Freedom to invest” is what I call this theme, which started back in the spring of 2018. Financial dependence and agreements with others will soon be a thing of the past as you deliberately strategize your way out of investments that no longer serve you.
Summer comes with two more eclipses: A solar eclipse on July 2nd bringing a fresh start on the career front, and a lunar eclipse on July 16th bring a shift on the home and family front. This could be your final break, Libra. A new job that offers you financial autonomy, along with a healthier work/life balance so that you can attend to domestic activities.
With that said, there may be a few delays around a new job, as well as networking. If you are planning a professional conference, or using your connections to find employment, activities may briefly stall mid-July through August. Stay patient and try not to lose hope. Matters will move forward as we enter the fall season.
September brings confirmation on the career front, and you may find yourself in a new setting interfacing with others. Eventually, busy days at the office will taper off as you shift your focus to personal aims and restoration. Energy for outer aims will resume by November, just in time for you to pursue material wealth and possessions. There may be delays with money and finances this month, especially if you are making an important purchase or negotiating a raise or promotion.
December will bring final agreements on the money front, as you shift your focus back to home and family as we enter the holiday season. A solar eclipse on December 26th after Christmas coinciding with the new transit of Jupiter through Capricorn will be auspicious. This may very well be the first time you actually feel at home in your space and with loved ones – a pleasant way to end the year.
