Practical Influences ~ Libra

When the Moon enters a zodiac sign it adds instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, sensitivity, emotions, intuition, imagination and emotional depth to influences that are at play; when the Sun enters a zodiac sign it adds vitality, individuality, will-power, creative energy and inspirational action to the influences at play; both affect the energy of our daily lives. Being mindful and calling upon these influences as well as utilising materials associated with them during these phases, will bring you closer to understanding your alchemical journey.

Ruler ~ Venus

The Venus symbol meaning is a combination of the circle and the cross indicating the spiritual and material levels combined. The circle reminds us of the inclusive nature of our universe. Here there is no exclusion, only inclusion. All is welcome, and all is ever-expanding. Spirituality holds hands with this same inclusive concept. The mystic mind never pushes away, but always embraces what is. And, at the base of all inclusion is the vibrating construct of love. The cross talks about nurturing immaterial understanding into the realm of material. It rests beneath the womb (represented by the circle in the Venus symbol). The location of the cross under the circle indicates all matter is birthed from a spiritually inclusive, loving space.

Element ~ Air

Air is the manifestation of movement, freshness, communication and of the intelligence. Air is the power of the mind, the force of intellect, inspiration, imagination. It is ideas, knowledge, dreams and wishes. Air is the element of new life and new possibilities.

Quality ~ Cardinal

The role of the cardinal quality is to push forward, be first, initiate. In Libra cardinal initiates through new ideas, and by being a balancing force among people. Cardinal shows the way, instigates, ready to forge ahead with plans, and attract those that can support their efforts. Cardinal qualities denote leadership, and the tendency to be outgoing through being engaged with the world in a dynamic way.

Body associations ~

  • Lower back
  • Kidneys
  • Adrenal Glands

Notice if there is any tension in your reproductive organs, in your bladder, in your kidneys. Our sacral region informs our interaction with others; it balances our ability to express ourselves openly. Is your expression creative, open and nurturing towards those in your life or are you sometimes insensitive and opinionated leaving you feeling pessimistic and isolated?
