Sun in Libra: Partnership Impulses

Keen Category: Astrology Advice

The Libra scales over an orange starburst

The Sun keeps up a consistent pace in its journey through the zodiac, visiting each of the twelve zodiac signs for about a month. As by far the biggest heavenly body in the solar system, the Sun consequently exerts the most influence on us all. When the Sun is visiting a zodiac sign, anyone born at that time will receive a deep imprint of that zodiac sign upon his or her personality.

On September 22, the Sun is aligned with the earth's equator. This alignment, called an equinox, is a twice-annual event. The sun's position here indicates the beginning of fall or spring and the start of zodiac Libra or Aries. After an equinox, the sun either proceeds south of the equator, bringing cooler temperatures and shorter days to those of us in the northern hemisphere of the globe, or it moves north and signals the rebirth of everything in nature as a rite of spring.

When the sun visits Libra, the impulse is to partner up. This is the zodiac's sign of partnership and your desire for relationships is revealed in all its complexity by examining how you react to planets visiting Libra. Since the Sun has the most impact of any object in the solar system, the month ahead will be the annual revelation of what we all want in a partnership.

An extremely rare planetary alignment will be occurring in 2010 while the Sun visits Libra. There will be two full moons, which is when the Moon exactly opposes the Sun. When the Sun is in Libra, the full moon occurs when the Moon visits the zodiac sign of Aries – the sign opposite Libra. The first full moon will occur on Thursday, September 23, just 6 hours after the Sun has entered Libra. This is a powerful full moon because lunar energy will be released at the very spot where the zodiac begins: the start of Aries. The Moon will have just entered the sign of Aries and will be at its fullest less than a half hour later. The second full moon is exact on Friday, October 22 at the very end of the stellar territory covered by Aries.

In between these full moons is the new moon, occurring on October 7. This is when the Moon occupies the same sign as the Sun. A Libra new moon is an excellent time to begin plans with another person involving just the two of you. This is as important as the full moons because Libra partnership energy benefits greatly from the emotional Moon adding a tender dimension to your feelings about a possible partner.

What this means for us down here on earth is a month with a much deeper emphasis on partnership issues. Breakups, reunions and other drama will ensue as the solar system delivers two climaxes in our interpersonal relationships. Your individual zodiac sign will have a reaction to all of this Libra activity before the Sun leaves on October 23, so read your forecast below.

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    This time of year usually finds you partnering up with great ease, but the two full moons could be making you so moody that others are just choosing to stay away. Try to be enthusiastic about all of the attention you are getting instead of being so critical. Looking for more specific guidance?

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    Your give and take with an authority figure will put you in the position to lead the leader. If you have planned a seduction, he will defenselessly walk into your arms without question.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    A new source of income will make a new relationship even more exciting, as you can help with the treating and pampering.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    You will put a partner on a pedestal and not understand when this person chooses to climb down and do his or her own thing.

Call an astrologer on Keen for your personalized forecast based on your individual cosmic traits.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    Your popularity on the dating circuit will reveal two things about you. The first is that you genuinely like people.

Call an astrologer on Keen for your personalized forecast based on your individual cosmic traits.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    While the two Libra/Aries full moons are uniting people, it is the new moon on October 7 that will signal the direction of your love life. A career decision around that time will seal the fate of your present and any future relationships. Choose with great care. Looking for more specific guidance? Call an astrologer on Keen for your personalized forecast based on your individual cosmic traits.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    Any chance to get out of town while the Sun is in Libra will deliver dating material of a quality that you just could not find back home. Do not be deluded that you should make a move, though. Consider what importing love to where you live now might do. Looking for more specific guidance? Call an astrologer on Keen for your personalized forecast based on your individual cosmic traits.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    Crawling on your hands and knees to please a man is so old-fashioned. And yet, your desire to serve compels you to be too nice to the men you date too soon. Try to be a little cooler and see if it makes anyone you like a bit more willing to be demonstrative and commitment-oriented. Looking for more specific guidance? Call an astrologer on Keen for your personalized forecast based on your individual cosmic traits.

Full moons light up the night with lunar energy and when the Moon is partnering with the Sun in this manner, relationships are blessed. So when this occurs involving the zodiac sign of partnerships and happens twice, look forward to satisfying your long list of relationship criteria, as well as being expected to satisfy his as well.
