Libra Monthly Horoscope – May 2017

 

Libra (Born September 24 to October 3) and Libra Ascendant 0 to 10 degrees Libra:

May 2017 Libra Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun continues to highlight your solar eighth house. Your attention turns inward, as well as to close personal relationships on a deeper level. Personal transformations, personal power, and intimate matters fulfill you most during this cycle. There may be a strong focus on other's money, such as the resources of a partner, inheritance, banking and loans, or taxes. You are more intense in your mood and disposition, and perhaps even secretive, at this time of year. You are more in touch with the deeper and even primal elements of your own personality, and more able to see these things in others. This can be a determined and personally powerful time of year if you apply the energy of this transit constructively.

From May 20th forward:

This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with managing everyday affairs and important details.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

All month: 

Venus graces your solar seventh house during this period. This is a time for extra attention to a partner or significant other, as well as from that person! You are more inclined to flatter and charm others during this cycle. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd

Occurring in your solar seventh house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to negotiations and one-on-one communications. Be as non-judgmental as you can with a partner. There may be the need to revisit old issues in a partnership, or there could be some communication problems with a partner. An ex-partner may resurface during this cycle. Misunderstandings with your partner now can do some damage if you (or your partner) focus on the choice of words instead of the meanings behind the words. If you need to talk through problems, try not to over-react to what your partner has to say. Mixed messages coming from a partner, or a disappointment, could occur now. You may not be as adept at mediating disputes for the time being, but it's a good cycle in which to reflect upon your negotiation skills with the goal of improving them. Re-thinking a partnership arrangement is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications involving legal affairs, travel, and education, as well as communications about the past, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. With Virgo ruling your twelfth house sector, somebody might be deceiving you or working against you, or nagging issues from the past may crop up and demand attention. Put off making solid travel plans if possible.

Until May 16th: 

Mercury continues to transit your solar seventh house. You can be especially aware of your "audience" in your communications now, which tend to be diplomatic and respectful during this cycle. You may be encountering an especially chatty or communicative partner, or meeting youthful, talkative people. At this time, you love to hear others' opinions and perspectives, and it's an excellent time to do so. Others can spur on your own thinking and decision making processes now, simply by offering another perspective. You are thinking a lot about others, a partner, and relating in general, and in some cases perhaps worrying over these things.

From May 16th forward: 

Mercury transits your solar eighth house. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month

Mars continues to animate and energize your solar ninth house. Your energy levels and sense of timing are good during this cycle. You are strong and bold in your beliefs and convictions as well, and others tend to naturally follow your lead. You actively seek out new learning experiences and have a strong desire to set out on new adventures, however big or small. Others find you easy to be around, even inspiring and energizing, and are attracted to your assertiveness and courage.

Overview Horoscope:

Where you may have felt stuck, in limbo, or delayed in April, dear Libra, more clarity arrives in May. This month is strong for a sense that you’re getting back on track. Relationships smooth over. Your stellar ability to compromise, negotiate, and bring balance to your life is back up to par, and then some! Relationships, finances, passion, intimacy, education, and adventure make up the larger themes of May and are areas of increased focus and opportunity. Learning and exploring with a partner or good buddy can be very beneficial now. Meeting people through your personal interests, studies, or travels is gratifying.

Even so, in many ways this is a month for doing some soul-searching, digging, and investigating. You may be doing a lot of observing and planning, and you're inclined to pour quite a bit of energy into engrossing projects and interests.

On the 9-10, you’re in particularly good shape for making financial discoveries and adjustments. This is a time for recognizing your worth or value and seeking out your rightful share. A conversation or news arrives now that nudges you towards these epiphanies. A business deal or project might come to full bloom now.

All month, you’re looking to break out of the mold or routine in various ways through what you learn and where you go. You're more courageous and motivated to try new things.

The 11th and the 16-17 can be tricky to navigate but will work to your advantage if you slow down, reconsider, and make adjustments. Be particularly mindful of your communications (you may come off as insensitive or uninterested) and watch for poor decisions resulting from restlessness on these dates. If your daily affairs are out of whack (and with Neptune a long-time guest in your sector of work and routines, this is quite likely), you may be suffering now as your situation prevents you from grabbing opportunities. Make it a priority to tidy up your life so that this doesn't keep happening.

Coming into stronger power this month is a Saturn-Uranus influence that began in December, and that will lift this coming November, supporting improvements and updates. Areas of your life that benefit from new rules or constructive changes include your relationships, home life, projects, and studies. Alternative relationships, routines, courses of study, or living arrangements and setups that have been difficult to integrate into your life in the past now may work well for you with new rules. There can be an excellent balance of tradition and innovation.

The last week of the month has its highs and its lows, but you come out a winner. You may be dealing with a frustrating responsibility or delays and breakdowns with communication or transportation, and this prevents you from getting where you want to go, either literally or figuratively (or both!). Some of you can be bogged down by mundane activities, the correction of errors, errands, chores, and other responsibilities that you hadn’t anticipated or put out of your mind. If you’ve been neglecting problem areas, they may demand your attention now. Travel or educational plans may be delayed. Try not to stress over differences of opinion or bumps in the road. Once over this hump, you’ll be in prime shape for enjoying the opportunities of the 30-31 related to education, publishing, connecting, and traveling. You’re excited about expanding a business, relationship -- or your mind and experiences.

Libra (Born October 4 to 13) and Libra Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Libra:

May 2017 Libra Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun energizes your sector of transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic "junk" or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life's secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year's events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 14th: 

Venus continues to move through your solar sixth house now. This is a time when beautifying and/or bringing harmony to your working environment is a priority to you. You might find more opportunities to socialize with co-workers, perhaps even meeting a new friend through your work or health routines. You are likely to bring more tact and diplomacy to your relations with the people you work with now. You may not be as productive as usual during this period, as the focus is more on social relationships and pleasure than on getting the job done. Improving health and vitality through pleasurable activities such as massage might be in focus now.

From May 14th: 

Venus graces your solar seventh house during this period. This is a time for extra attention to a partner or significant other, as well as from that person! You are more inclined to flatter and charm others during this cycle. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd

Occurring in your solar seventh house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to negotiations and one-on-one communications. Be as non-judgmental as you can with a partner. There may be the need to revisit old issues in a partnership, or there could be some communication problems with a partner. An ex-partner may resurface during this cycle.

As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

From the 6th forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar ninth house. During this period, you are especially enthusiastic and more bold than usual. Some restlessness and hunger for adventure is experienced now. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities, and you may find that you have a lot of energy for higher studies, travel, or simply new subjects. Negative potentials include being excessively opinionated or getting easily fired up over differences in points of view, or legal fights.

Libra (Born October 14 to 23) and Libra Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Libra:

May 2017 Libra Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar seventh house--your partnership sector. This can be a time of much learning through the mirror of close relationships. It's not the time to push your agenda or personal plans forward; rather, it's a cycle in which you are at your best when you recognize the need to form alliances, to give back to a special someone, and to compromise in order to find some balance in your life. It's a strong period for putting yourself into another person's shoes and to better understand him/her. You may be meeting with someone strong and assertive by nature now, or a partner is more assertive and needy of attention. There may be some competitive feelings between you and a significant other now. Focus is on reconciliation, forming or cementing bonds, diplomacy, consultation, one-on-one interactions, and negotiations. You may feel a little drained physically now, temporarily.

From May 10th forward:

The Sun energizes your sector of transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until May 21st:

Mars continues to energize your solar eighth house. This is a less outwardly assertive or aggressive stage for you as you take the time to process recent events in your life and to develop strategies for going after what you want in the future. You are more observant than active during this cycle, and more strategic and deliberate when you do take action. There may be an increase in sexual appetite now. It's an excellent period for eliminating wasteful activities. Shared finances can come into focus, and you might feel an increased need to take charge of these matters. This could lead to disputes and disagreements if you are not careful or sensitive in your dealings with others.

From May 21st forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar ninth house. During this period, you are especially enthusiastic and more bold than usual. Some restlessness and hunger for adventure is experienced now. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities, and you may find that you have a lot of energy for higher studies, travel, or simply new subjects.
