Libra Seeking Balance

We are blessed with largely harmonious aspects in the week following the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on Monday. Additionally the Sun leaves dramatic Leo for calm, earthy Virgo on Tuesday, while Venus leaves retiring Cancer and makes her entrance into attention loving Leo early Saturday. Friday Saturn will be stationing direct at 21° 11 Sagittarius, beginning the end of its stay in Sagittarius before moving on into Capricorn in December.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
