Libra Sun Sign forecast 2013
On the following pages you will find a guide to the general influences of two major planets on your star sign through 2013. The first is Jupiter which is associated with spirituality, adventure, opportunity and good fortune. The other is Saturn which astrologers associate with responsibility, commitment, organisation and structure.
While it is important for us to nurture our spiritual wellbeing, we also need to put food on our plates and pay the mortgage. Understanding how the diverse influences of Jupiter and Saturn are working for us could be the key to maintaining our spiritual growth while at the same time taking care of our material needs.
In the following forecasts I have written about the opportunities that Jupiter will bring and how they may benefit you. The information on Saturn relates to the lessons we need to learn and responsibilities we must address, and in so doing we might successfully achieve our goals.
Obviously what is written here can only be a general overview but nonetheless I hope you will find it helps you to make the Jupiter and Saturn influences in the coming year. For a more personal reading specific to your individual birth chart see the reading services I offer or call 01488 681355 for details.
When Jupiter entered Gemini on the 11th June 2012 it began a positive period of growth for you which concludes in June 2013. Jupiter is in retrograde motion from 4th October 2012 – 30th January 2013, which means you can use the first month of the year to reconsider and reconnect with past interests. While in the fellow air sign of Gemini, Jupiter is inspiring and encouraging you, and you may have many insights into your life during this period. It is an excellent time for all forms of education whether you are the pupil or the teacher. Jupiter helps you to develop your natural talent for communication and advising others, and the only possible downside could be the size of your phone bills!

Saturn entered Scorpio on the 5th October 2012, beginning a transit of the area of your Solar chart associated with personal finances, resources and natural talents. The last time that Saturn visited this area was in the mid 1980‘s. It will occupy this area until autumn 2015. During this period Saturn will cause you to consider whether you are putting your assets to good use. The main question that you may ask yourself is, ‘is it worth it?’.
Your financial situation will no doubt come into focus under this Saturn influence. If you have debts you may need to work out a plan that takes care of them and gives you greater peace of mind. Saturn acts a bit like a stock taker. Over the coming months you may decide that you can let go of some of your possessions if you no longer have a use for them. Freeing up capital and utilising existing funds can form the basis of a worthwhile transformation of your life. Building now on your natural abilities can pave the way for rewards in the future, both financially and in terms of personal satisfaction from a job well done. You might consider further developing your skills at this time, especially where their application benefits others. This transit of Saturn is particularly useful if you work in the area of therapy.
It is particularly during the period that Saturn is retrograde between the 18th February – 8th July 2013, that you may have cause to take stock. A car boot or garage sale may be just the thing to give you the extra cash to fund your ventures. You may also like to review your work practices, with the emphasis on their effectiveness and job satisfaction. There may be easier ways to achieve good results and at the same time enjoy your life more.
