Developmental Tasks: To foster emotional connections which provide opportunities for mutual nourishment, support and rock-solid stability. To process experience through the lens of the artist and creator of beauty for the entire world.
As I’ve said before, one of the words in our vocabulary which seems to be misconstrued quite frequently is INTIMACY. Upon its mention, we immediately close our eyes and hear whispers of sweet words or slip into daydreams of romantic gestures and being enthralled in the rapture of ecstasy.
While enjoyable experiences may indeed be associated with this term, so is stomping out of a room in furious anger, sitting somewhere by yourself doing “slow burns”, or deliberately pushing the buttons of a partner because you know just how to hurt them.
With this combination, your solar force is directed toward the establishment of intimate bonds and this work is done through solid emotional grounding and consistency. Your vitality is sparked through your empathy and unconditional love and response. When you have something, and or someone to care about and support, you feel energized. To serve as an effective mirror for others is connected to your ultimate aspirations. After all, water takes the shape of its container.
In the midst of mirroring and connecting, it’s also important to establish your own domain of the heart,as to not become confused with who’s feeling what. Do not underestimate the need to maintain your own emotional space. When you’re able to master this “centering”, inviting others into your private realm will be rooted in sincerity and authenticity. You’ll understand exactly how much you have to give and in turn, what you anticipate as reciprocity. You’ll learn that consistency isn’t “boring” and forming alliances based on unconditional love and caring adds a deeper and richer dimension to your life.
With Venus ruling your birth chart as well as the sign of your moon, the themes of the planet loom heavy in your psyche. With the Cancerian/Lunar vibe being shined on by the Sun, an ever- evolving story emerges concerning your ability to handle your important relationships with care.
If you find that your relationships are a series of “revolving doors”, with people exiting just as quickly as they enter- this is an important key that a re-examination and re-organization is in order.
Jodie Forrest on the Libra Ascendant:
“Life should be met with a sincere attempt to achieve and maintain both inner equilibrium and equilibrium between the self and the surrounding environment to which Libra Rising is extremely sensitive.”
With your Astrological signature, the vehicle you use to navigate the world is that of sincere interest in other people. If this isn’t happening, it’s time to structure your life in away which allows for those possibilities, and part of this is making an effort to include those individuals with whom you feel a constant and unwavering interest can be maintained.
