It's no surprise that the symbol for Libra is the scale. Whether it's the pondering the balance of Yin and Yang, weighing justice vs injustice, or choosing between cats vs dogs, Libras serve as the great arbitrators and keen observers of the conflicts of the universe. That means, dear Libra, you will have the opportunity to witness many battles this coming year. Note that we said: observe. You will be in a position to witness great deciding factors in the world and make your decision as to which side will win. If you read comic books, you are The Watcher: always watching humanity's progress, trials, and tribulations, but not inserting yourself into their world. As a result of this, you have immense wisdom that you store up like a giant battery. That means you are on the cusp of potentially great change for you and the world around you. But you'll need to keep your head on and eyes open. Read on, Libra, for your guide to navigating the year.
2020 gets off to an auspicious start for you as an event of great cosmic significance and synchronicity occurs. We are, of course, speaking of the conjunction of Saturn with Pluto on January 12th. This is a big event for everyone on the planet, but you, dear Libra, you will be especially feeling the effects of this momentous convergence. If for any reason you don't know, that means the two planets are linked up together under the same sign. It's big and prophetic. Think of it as the opening fanfare for your year, or the overture the pit orchestra plays before you perform your opening song. And if you have a bit of stage fright, don't worry. The orchestra will keep vamping until you can't stand it anymore and you have to shine. Which you do! This is a good year for you to shine, but you're going to do so in a way that is very you. A Libra shining isn't flashy and extravagant. No, you shine in a different way. Think of that battery we mentioned earlier. You shine due to that accumulated knowledge bursting out of your seams. You're like a power generator about to blow.
You've been working very hard for your entire working life, Libra. When everyone else went home at five o'clock at the end of the working day, you were still going, not letting work go until you knew it was ready. That means you've earned a break. We're not saying it's time to retire (unless it's actually time for you to retire. If so: do!), but it is time for you to acknowledge the work you've done. Take a moment and look back at everything you've done in your working life. That means more than whatever job you're in now. It even means more than looking at your past work history. It means looking at everything you've done in the service of someone else, whether you got paid for it or not. We're going to call that your complete working life. What do you notice? We're guessing you see that you've put a lot of time and effort towards other people's goals, wants, and needs. That's okay: we all work for The Man in some capacity or another. But it's only okay to a point. Now take stock of the amount of work that you've done that was clearly just for you. We're guessing that that's a pretty low amount. We're also guessing it never felt like work. Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life, right? Libra, this is the time to do more work for yourself, where you are the primary beneficiary of the fruits of that labor. Given your propensity for fairness and justice, this might feel selfish. Guess what? It is but in a healthy way. You've been working hard your entire life and you're not going to stop. But meet your new boss: you.
It's very easy for us to say "change your life completely, Libra!". How are the bills going to get paid, you may ask, while you follow your bliss and all that? Luckily, this is a very fruitful financial year for you coming up. We're not saying you should buy every lottery ticket that comes your way (but do buy one ticket and - and please keep this under your hat - buy that ticket in late February), but if there's a chance to get an unexpected bonus, or get a bigger tax refund than you expected, or to find a quarter in the street (hey, money is money), it would be during 2020. You won't have to do much to have this bounty come your way other than keeping your eyes open. Will this be enough money to live on? Probably not, unless you're incredibly frugal. But it could be enough money to be a game-changer and pull ahead in life just a bit (and get that much closer to what you want). Squirrel that money away or use it to pay off something that's holding you back. If you haven't been able to think about the future because you're worried about those car payments, pay a little bit extra to lessen that burden. You're investing in your future, one street quarter at a time.
What does it mean for you that Jupiter is in Aquarius? A lot, actually. Glad you asked, Libra. And it especially means a lot regarding your love life. Earlier we described you like the great observer: watching the world and making your decisions as to what you need to do to proceed. Jupiter is the planet most associated with generosity and trust. These are qualities that lend themselves to healthy, strong relationships. Aquarius is associated with universal tolerance and understanding. These can be great qualities in the service of your partner, but what can they do for you? You take pleasure from being that outside observer. You're the person who is standing on the edge of the party, watching everyone have a good time. Meanwhile, you don't have to bother with small talk or entertaining a drunk guest. This is your ideal state. we're not saying you're an aloof observer, Libra, but you like sitting a little bit above everything and helping when you can. There's a part of you who has enjoyed that part of romantic relationships as well but maybe you didn't want to admit that to yourself. And you know what? That's okay. It is totally fine to be the one who enjoys helping more than taking.
Now back to that Saturn and Pluto conjunction. What does this mean for you, Libra? Saturn and Pluto are the two most feared planets as far as the Zodiac is concerned, and their combination means there are great warping and chaos on the horizon. So far everything we've described to you here has been about temperance, patience, and observation. There's one area in your life you need to be very proactive: your health. Don't panic. we're not trying to scare you or anything like that. What we are saying, though, is if you've been putting off some doctor's visits, now is the year to do them. Get everything checked out. Keep putting off a diet? No more, Libra. Cut out the white bread and eat more vegetables. Planning on starting that running program tomorrow? Nothing doing. Get off the couch and go for a walk (and then when you return, look up вЂcouch to 5k' plans). This is the time to get moving (literally) on all aspects of your body and to take care of it.
There is much to observe this next year, Libra. Where some of the other signs might see that as inaction and passivity, an observation deck is a candy store to you. You know it's not a passive enterprise. While you're observing, you're taking notes, learning, and comparing. Of course, if there's a need for you to offer a helping hand, you will. But most of your time will be spent gathering information which you will absolutely put to work in the years to come. This is the time for you to gather your nuts for winter when everyone else is eating. Don't listen to them. Listen, learn, repeat.
You are the great observer, holding everything in comparison to what you know and processing all the information that flows through you. This is a good thing. The world needs people who have the world at their fingertips and can make connections others would miss. It is okay to lead with this tendency in your life, Libra. Do not assume for a minute that you're letting the world pass you by. You are the rock washed over by the waves of the ocean. Each pass files down your rough edges and brings out your true form. That true form is the core of the rock, observing eons of life. If that rock could talk, we could learn so much. You are that rock. Keep watching the world and be ready to tell your story.
