Right now, the moon is at the top of the chart, in Libra in the 10th house. Tonight’s moon will be 6 days old, and it will be illuminated at 34% as a waxing crescent. This new moon phase began on the 28th of July.
In Libra, the moon becomes airy, methodical, and intellectual. Libra is the sign of balance, justice, and harmony, and its ruling planet is Venus. When the moon is in its waxing crescent phase, action is the key-word.
Before I get into this reading, I would like to mention a real world situation that seems to fall perfectly in sync with this alignment. Alex Jones, the host of Info Wars, is in court and I think he’s being sued by the families of the victims from the Sandy Hook shooting. I’m going to leave my personal opinions about the trial itself aside because that’s another story for another post. But, I brought it up because of the connections here. He’s being sued, and that involves justice and balance (Libra). He’s a popular podcast host, and his career and public image are both highlighted here in the 10th house.
It’s 5:45 PM here on the east coast, and it’s 2:45 PM out on the west coast, and the timing is important for the house placement. The 10th house is the zone manifesting energy pertaining to our careers and public image. Patience is a quality of the moon that seems to be outside the realm of this current placement, but a little patience is always helpful. Keep it in the back of your mind and remind yourself to be patient if the need arises.
Your current career choice has been on your mind lately, but tonight, the time is right for you to make a move. The right career can bring harmony and balance to your life. If you’re in a career that’s destroying other areas of your life, then a change is necessary.
There is such a thing as work/life balance, and trust me, the wrong career can throw everything in your personal life out of whack. The moon’s placement favors intellectual work, so start moving on those resumes and get those applications filled out. Start applying to the jobs that represent who you are. You know yourself, you know your skill set, and you know what you’re capable of. Find something that fits you. You’ll be happy with a job when you’re abilities are being utilized.
The next order of business is your image. How does the public see you? How do your co-workers feel about you? Remember something, people are always going to talk about you, and people are always going to say things about you that aren’t true. Some people will talk about you behind your back.
The time is right for you to address those issues, and start righting the wrongs. Libra is a cardinal sign, and by nature, cardinal signs are stubborn. The energy of Libra is direct and action oriented.
In this situation, you’re right, and you know exactly what you’re talking about. You don’t need to get physical or beat anyone up. Your approach should be intellectual and patient. When you have your ducks in row, approach the person who’s talking about you, if it’s necessary, and let them know you know what they’ve been saying and you don’t appreciate it. There’s nothing wrong with speaking up for yourself, and right now, justice, balance, and harmony are called for.
Correct them, and correct the situation. As we get older we change. The people in your life now should support you and support what you are doing. If not, remove them. Harmony, balance, and justice; some people judge us by the company we keep. I’m not saying to get rid of a lifetime friend, I’m saying you need to make sure the people in your life have similar interests and goals.
With social media, you’re in total control. If you don’t like what people are saying about you, or the direction in which things are gong, then make the necessary changes. People on social media only know what you show and tell, so make sure you’re portraying yourself the way you want to be seen. If you take yourself seriously, and think highly of yourself, then more than likely, others will see you the same way.
It’s okay to have fun, but there’s a time for fun. This isn’t the time.
The other side to this is that you might be rewarded for your hard work and dedication. A boss or a manager might finally see you for the employee you are and the wonderful contributions you’ve been making. Perhaps, a well-deserved reward is coming your way. Even a pat on the back or a simple “Good Job” is recognition, and it could be just enough to bring harmony to a situation aggravated by underappreciation.
Balance and equality; are you being paid what you’re worth? Are you constantly being asked to go beyond what’s required? You’re only one person. Your job comes with a description. Check it out.
The hidden key to this reading is Venus’s placement in the Cancer in 7th house. Partnerships and marriage fall under the rule of the 7th house. Partnerships are important, especially when it comes to work.
It’s possible, highly possible, that you’ll meet someone-probably a co-worker, and he or she will be to one! Don’t underestimate the power of a partnership or marriage. The right person, when love is involved like it is now, can change your entire life.
People see you differently when you’re married. A loving partnership or a marriage can open doors for you in the professional arena that would otherwise be closed. Find that partnership or that lover that’s seems to be your answer for balance and harmony.
The seventh house is also the house of our known enemies, aka our competition. Compete. Prove yourself, show up on time, show up when you’re scheduled, and put 100% into whatever you’re doing. Watch how fast and for the better, your public image changes.
My friends, I’ll leave you this; don’t be afraid. Ask for what you want, strive to be the best, approach the person you’re interested in, address the problems and the imbalances, speak the truth, and fight for what’s right. If something is yours then claim it. In the cardinal sign of Libra and with the moon in its crescent phase, action is required and it’s necessary.
