2013: Libra Overview
2013 brings you nothing short of a total rebirth, Libra. You can finally bid farewell to the heavy and austere presence of Saturn in your stars since late 2009. You have had enough lessons in love and commitment to last you a lifetime. Now you're ready to put those lessons to the test by pursuing your true calling and passion. No longer will you be satisfied with simply scratching the surface of life. You're prepared to go as deep as necessary to create something of lasting value. You want nothing less than the truth, and nothing short of profound meaning.
You'll be putting more attention and importance on finances than you have in a long time now that Saturn has moved on to your money zone. This is the year to finally work on a budget and devise sound economic strategies for increasing your income without working yourself to the bone. This is an excellent time to get out of debt as much as you possibly can so that you can save your pennies for the whirlwind of change on deck in 2013. The eclipses will rock your money sectors, so be prepared for sweeping gains and losses, and plan accordingly.
You'll continue to break out of any codependent relationship ruts with the ongoing influence of Pluto and Uranus sparring in the cosmos. You've certainly learned how important it is to value your authenticity and independence in all of your dealings with others. No longer will you fall prey to being too nice. You see how crucial it is to set your limits, draw your lines in the sand and commit without wavering. Saturn taught you to get off the fence and take a firm stand. This is how you gain respect. Your diplomacy and charm will always serve you well, but you realize now that they must be backed by the iron fist in the velvet glove.
If you look closely, you can make new alliances today. One of the day care or soccer moms at second glance has great friend potential. You'll have to make the first move, though, as in an invite for tea and cookies.
Today is all about novelty and new experiences, so push beyond your comfort zone and see what you can do differently. Things may start to get really interesting midday, but only if you make it so.
You may meet someone today who's easy to talk to. Invite them to dinner, where you can talk for hours, much to the chagrin of the waiter. But the tiramisu and coffee you'll have for dessert may loosen both of your tongues, and he'll just have to wait until you're finished.
Did you underestimate how much time you'd have to get ready for a big event? Kill two birds with one stone: Hang your outfit in the bathroom as you shower. The steam will take care of the worst of the wrinkles.
