Yesterday we moved into Libra season – this is the month each year (22/23 September to 22/23rd October) which is ruled by Venus the planet of harmony, balance and relationships.
Libra is the only sign in the zodiac which is ruled by an inanimate object – the scales. And in so many ways Libra acts as an indicator of balance; helping us to restore ourselves to a natural state of harmony.
We’ve just moved out of Virgo season which was primarily concerned with health, money and getting the tangible aspects of life in order.
And now we’ve changed gears as Libra is about our connection with ourselves and others.
So you are likely to feel the ups and downs of life more powerfully right now as the energetic focus is all about your inner state. What do your internal scales look like?
And while you may feel the call to rebalance – finding the path back to equilibrium isn’t always comfortable. The recent Full Moon in Pisces will have illuminated any illusions and deceptions in your life and you may well find that life is asking you to let go on some level.
For our Greek ancestors the name Libra comes from the Libryan goddess of justice who carried the scales of judgement. She was connected to a symbolic ritual called ‘the weighting of the heart’.
This ritual involved weighting the heart of any recently deceased on enormous scales. On one side was the heart – on the other was a feather (representing truth and justice).
If the heart balanced then the deceased would be granted a place in the Fields of Hetep and Iaru – the blissful afterlife.
But if the heart was heavy with the weight of wrongdoings, the balance would sink and the heart would be grabbed and devoured by a terrifying beast that sat ready and waiting by the scales.
And as we know, the wheel of life will keep turning whether we are in balance or out. To flow with more ease – this is a potent time to reflect and inwardly consider what your heart is full of at this moment in time.
Do your internal Libra scales require any adjustment?
