When the Sun moves into Libra this brings a lot of we, us and our into the air. After all, Libra is an air sign. Libra is also a dual-natured and we-focused sign. It's opposite sign is Aries that is 'me' focused and Libra is 'we' focused. Aries is all about me, myself and I, while Libra is all about we, us and our. Libra is naturally ruled by the planet Venus, which is focused on committed relationships, companionship, marriage, couplings, partnerships, Love, harmony, balance and beauty. Taking into account that Libra is the harmonic balance between two things, often times Libra energy goes out of the way to seek balance and ends up throwing things completely off balance. It's like compromising so much that it's really not a compromise at all. Too much compromise is sure to leave someone a bit ticked off. Libra is about justice, fair play and moderation. Due to the fact that Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, Libra is a Lover, not a fighter and will do just about anything to keep the peace. Read more about the Sun in Libra under this link.

For all Leo's, the Sun in Libra is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

You are shining in the areas of communication and interacting with others. Pay attention to your style of communication with people who are closest to you. This would be siblings, neighbors and other people who are part of your everyday Life. Your mental abilities are sharper right now because this huge blast of air (Sun in Libra, air sign) is feeding your fire (Leo, fire sign). You are more certain now that you have been in quite some time.

This is a great time to take a short journey because travel is where you will shine during this time. Short journey's include going for a drive in the country, areas around where you live or across state lines. Longer journey's mean abroad (across the Ocean). Try to take a short journey while the Sun is shining in your 3rd house.

If you have been thinking about starting or finishing a writing project, this is the time to do it. Scroll down to read your Mercury Opportunity.

October 10, 2014 at 1:26 PM EDT where it will Retrograde back into Libra. Mercury turns Retrograde on October 4, 2014 at 1:02 PM EDT until October 25, 2014 at 3:17 PM EDT. This Retrograde will take us back to September 14th. So the period between September 14th and October 4th is what we are repeating with this Retrograde. This will be your time period of focus. What was going on, what did you do, what happened and how did you handle it?

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First I will write about Mercury in Scorpio and then the last couple of paragraphs will be about how it impacts your sign. Remember from the above paragraph, Mercury rules the mind, how we communicate and our reasoning power.

Mercury in Scorpio is a very profound communicative transit. Let's think about this. Scorpio is very intense, secretive and instinctive, so when coupled with the planet of communication this creates extremely profound and capable insight. This intensifies the ability to see human motivations more clearly.

Mercury in Scorpio cuts to the chase and does not mince words and if you know a Scorpio, their language is generally fairly sharp and often stinging. If you don't want to know, then don't ask a Scorpio because they won't spare your sensitive feelings, you will just have to get over it. Scorpio energy either says what it feels or doesn't say anything at all. Actually, the silence of a Scorpio says a lot. It's no secret, Scorpio hates and Loves with equal fervor.

Mercury in Scorpio creates a very determined mind able to tap all resources. Think people think! Mercury is the thinking planet and so Mercury in Scorpio will help you think your way through challenges and overcome them. Scorpio is also the worrier of the zodiac, so if you choose the route of worrying your way through instead of thinking your way through, then this transit will feed your 'chosen' suffering. Worrying does not serve you, it only makes you suffer. Make a choice, worry or think.

Scorpio is not only ruled by the scorpion and the eagle, it is also ruled by the mythical and sacred bird, 'the phoenix rising' who rose from the ashes and transformed. Scorpio carries the ability of the 'Midas Touch' who has the ability to turn the situation around like King Midas who turned everything he touched into gold. Scorpio has knack for getting out of severely challenging situations by simply transforming the situation into something better. It's like taking a donut and twisting it like a pretzel into a neverending figure eight. That is the work of a Scorpio. It is my belief that a Scorpio invented the twist donut and lemonade. If anyone can take lemons and turn it into lemonade, it is indeed a Scorpio. While it is important to have each sign of the zodiac on your team, can you now see how important it is to have a Scorpio on your team. Keep in mind that we all have Scorpio somewhere in our Natal Chart, which means Scorpio is part of you, so you should get to know this sign and where you carry the transformative power of the 'Midas Touch' and the 'Phoenix Rising'.

Scorpio rules the genitalia (sex organs) and thereby rules sex; therefore, the thinking planet of Mercury causes a preoccupation with sex.

Being that Scorpio is the secretive and investigative Agent 007 of the zodiac, this transit brings about intense research, detective and investigative tendencies. And as a gentle reminder, never ever lie to a Scorpio, because they will find out. Their natural suspicious and questioning tendency tells them to "trust but verify". Actually, Scorpio's don't really trust anyone. Someone in the zodiac has to be this way and Scorpio is the one. Scorpio's don't mistrust, they distrust. This why their level of communication often involves withholding rather than giving. This is exactly why they need insurance but assurance. Scorpio naturally rules the 8th house of joint resources (money, wills, insurance), joint physicality (sex) and joint feeling (assurance). Scorpio really does want to share their Life with someone and when they do, you can best believe that they consider you, someone special.

Mercury in Scorpio is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family, roots, heritage, private life, father, land, property, residences, and domestic affairs.

Since Mercury rules "thinking" and is moving through your house of home and family you may have a tendency to dwell on your roots, which is the same as your past. This increased "thinking" on your home and family will be a perfect time to have dialogue with members of your family in order to solve the problems at hand. Clear the air with your parents or a child who has not been fully present in the family. It only takes one member of the family to change the dynamics of the family for the better. Change yourself and others will change with you. Find a way to express your feelings with members of your family. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. Venus is the estrogen in the chart. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Libra and then the last couple of paragraphs will pertain to your sign. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.

Venus in Libra is actually in its Home or Domicile placement. This is a Good thing! Venus places a HUGE emphasis on relationships and them being nothing but peaceful, workable and happy. Venus in Libra wants to be able to sit on the couch with someone in comfortable silence without the need to answer the question, "What wrong?" just because nothing is being spoken. Simply put, they want peace. Venus in Libra says, "Let's all hold hands and sing Kumbya!" Venus in Libra wants a close personal connection with someone that has Loving security and puts the heart at ease. Arguments, discord and strife will shut down Venus in Libra .... SO FAST! .... that they will fall quiet and will simply not argue with you. In other words, you will lose this fight because they will not fight. Don't waste your time. You might be thinking "passive aggressive?" Oh yeah, in its finest hour it is passive aggressive, especially directed at the person who wants to fight. Still, you will lose if you insist on fighting. You better come at the situation from another direction rather than with a loud mouth and a fist in the air.

Venus in Libra is very sociable, well-liked and absolutely cannot stand crude, uncouth or coarse behavior. Men don't like hard, sassy, loud women and women don't like nasty, aggressive and loud-mouth men, especially out in public. They don't like it at home, much less in public. The social behavioral standards for Venus in Libra is super-high. Venus in Libra wonders about crude people, "Don't you have a shut-off valve?"

Venus naturally rules both Taurus and Libra and shows up quite differently in each sign. Venus is more attracted to money while Libra simply attracts it. This is because Venus in Libra surrounds themselves with not only beautiful things but beautiful people. Venus in Libra is more concerned with the relationship first (personal and business) and then everything else comes after that. So Venus in Libra actually has it all. Venus in Libra's social skills make them better at dealing with all kinds of people, which enhances their ability to do business and acquire wealth. Honestly folks, it is super-dooper hard not to like someone with Venus in Libra. People want to know them and be their friend. You can use the knowledge of Venus in Libra in your personal natal chart by applying this information to the area of your chart where Libra resides.

Venus in Libra is not as concerned about how they look like Venus in Taurus. While Venus in Taurus may spend their hard earned money on a designer wardrobe, Venus in Libra can throw anything on, even a paper bag, and look great. Yeah, they're one of those people! Those with Venus in Libra in their natal chart will never lose their looks. Same goes with those who have a Libra Rising Sign. They are just attractive people who always attract members of the opposite sex or the same sex if the person is attracted to the same sex. Venus in Libra no doubt makes for a popular individual. They are well-liked, well-respected and attract a lot of attention. When they walk into a room, people do take notice.

Venus in Libra is also very artsy. While Venus in Taurus is typically musically inclined, Venus in Libra is artisically inclined toward painting, decorating and sculpting. Venus in Libra absolutely, hands-down, wants their partner to look great at all times. If you have a Venus in Libra partner and you are not taking care of yourself, I guarantee this bothers them to their core. Don't kid yourself because they do not like it! They may not be too concerned about the way they look (and why should they because they always look great, even when the wake up) but they are very concerned about the way you look. While Venus in Libra may act like they don't know they look great . . believe me, they do!

For all Leo's, Venus in Libra is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country and active search for knowledge.

You may feel more agreeable than you have in the recent past. Love is in the air and it shows up in your style of communication. Mars is aggressive energy and Venus is Love and beautiful energy. Imagine if Mars was in your 3rd house of communication, you would be one aggressive communicator. With Venus in this placement you are more agreeable and friendly than usual. You are the most sensitive sign and this sensitivity will probably show up in your style of communcation.

Since the 3rd house rules local travel and local environment, you will probably recognize more beauty in close proximity to you. Your appreciation for the world in your most immediate environment becomes heightened. This is a great time to tell those closest to you know how you feel. Affection for those closest to you is important during this time. Use this opportunity to make amends. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Leo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Virgo 2nd house, Libra 3rd house - Venus in Libra, Scorpio 4th house, Sagittarius 5th house, Capricorn 6th house, Aquarius 7th house, Pisces 8th house, Aries 9th house, Taurus 10th house, Gemini 11th house and Cancer 12th house.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Sagittarius and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its exo-skeleton body. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Oh this is indeed a fiesty placement for Mars in outspoken, tactless and enthusiastic Sagittarius. Picture a rider sitting on a rared up horse pumping their fist in the air yelling, "Yahooooooo!" . . . or "Hell Yeah!" . . . or "Charge!" That is exactly what this Mars in Sagittarius picture looks like. Mars in Sagittarius is a leader through shrear inspiration. Actually, this placement inspires and motivates as it leads the charge toward exploration and adventure.

Mars in Sagittarius has extremely strong philosophic and/or religious convictions that it will fight, debate, defend and argue to the death. It will be interesting to see how this transit plays out on the global front regarding the USA and the Middle East. The sense of justice here is very strong and can give the feeling of being invincible. Feeling invincible as a nation or as an individual can be dangerous thing if restrictions and limitations are not addressed.

Mars in Sagittarius in the natal chart can look like the child or adult with ADD or ADHD. This placement produces some of the highest levels of physical energy and enthusiasm, which creates a very sort attention span. Many projects are started and just as many are left unfinished. Energies are scattered and work is sloppy and disorganized. Since we are talking about Mars in Sagittarius, the centaur, which is half man and half horse, picture a horse fenced in and trapped behind a gate. Sooner or later that horse with all of that energy is going to jump the fence and run. Mars in Sagittarius has to have its freedom. It needs space. This placement needs unrestricted freedom at all costs.

When you think about the USA and the Middle East, we do have a freedom issue here. Politically speaking, there are going to be a lot of hotter debates going on right now. There will be a lot of outspoken debaters just foaming at the mouth trying to over-talk each other. Sagittarius incessantly interrupts anyway but now it will take on a whole new level of interruption.

Speaking of freedom, lets think about Love and relationships while Mars is rolling through Sagittarius. There are some Lovers who will begin to feel trapped or fenced in creating a freedom issue. One person may be telling another, "I need space." If you are already feeling the relationship effects of this placement, then just pull back and give the other person some space before they ask for it. Mars in Sagittarius has never really been known for being consistent or particularly constant in relationships. This is a sporty placement as well because Mars naturally rules competitive and sports-minded Aries. The approach to sex will be as though it was a sport. For uncommitted singletons, it may be hard to commit to just one person because of the feeling of being trapped or fenced in. This is a very strong placement for sex as well. Mars is the testosterone planet and when placed in the sign of the horse . . well, need I say more? Mars in Sagittarius in a man's chart does mean that he is well-endowed with family jewels or should I say, "Hung like a horse." Sorry folks, it is astrology and I am just giving you the astrological facts. I don't want to hold back on you, especially during blunt and frank Mars in Sagittarius. Tell it like it is GIRL! When it comes to sex this placement can also be blunt and often times crude when going after sex.

All said, this placement is fun, it is cheerful and it is welcome in just about anyone's home or at a social gathering. It's like that loud mouth girl or loud mouth guy that everyone like's even though they won't shut the hell up. You just can't help but like them. This placement does bring confidence, excitement and optimism that is hard to turn away. Mars in Sagittarius rarely fails because failure is not an option. This is the gambler of the zodiac who will always roll the dice on themselves. So if there is anything you should take away from these paragraphs it is a quote from the Flight Director of Apollo 13, Gene Kranz who said, "Failure is not an option." That is a Mars in Sagittarius quote if I ever heard one.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Sagittarius is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 5th house of pleasurable activities, dating, love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss.

It just keeps getting better. Self-expression is the focus right now. This is your playful time when it comes to dating, intimacy, creativity and sport. You just want to have fun right now. You may even find yourself seeking out intimacy. Watch it -- there is no need in getting careless when you drop your drawers. If you just "be yourself," you will indeed attract more partners to you. There is no need to try so hard. A little competition goes a long way. If you are single, then going to a sporting event where there is aggressive Mars competition in the air just may introduce you to your next romantic partner.

Chiron in Pisces turns Retrograde at 17 degrees on Saturday, June 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM EDT until November 24, 2014 at 7:44 PM EDT at 13 degrees. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 8th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Leo's, this involves your 8th house of other people's money, joint resources, coupling resources with another including sex, death, rebirth, transportation, insurance, taxes, wills and beneficiaries. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
