AS GOOD AS IT GETS
All of a sudden the online dating website I have been looking at has 80,000 people on it rather than the usual 50,000 surfing for love. Why? There are 3 planets in the sign of Libra- romance, pleasure, harmony and cooperation. The emphasis keeps cooking as Venus and Mars conjunct in Libra on September 11. You don’t have to think too hard to know what that means! It is the beginning of a whole new cycle in sex relations. The past 2 cycles began in the sign of Scorpio, so for the last 4 years we have been grappling with the shadow of love- power plays, obsession, but also the scary surrender to profound intimacy. Our new cycle in Libra is much lighter and less emotional. It is pleasant, flirty and playful. Then on September 24, Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Libra! We may have to re-group, re- consider and renew what we have done in all levels of relationship. How do we connect? What do we expect? What can we accept?
There was a very strong emphasis in the sign of Libra in 1996. (Chiron joined the North Node). Think back to what you were doing or learning about love and relationship, particularly committed partnership, back then. We will be evaluating communications, beliefs, and choices that were activated at that time. When Mercury goes direct on October 15 we enter new territory that promises more balance and grace. It is also a good time for peace negotiations and finalizing divorces and putting them to rest.
In 1996 the movies reflected many aspects of love. Liv Tyler innocently explored her budding sexuality in Stealing Beauty. We saw soaring romance with Celine Dion’s rapturous backdrop music in Titanic. And, we must not forget one of my favorite on-screen marriages, Marge and Norm Gunderson in Fargo. “Man, You gotta eat a breakfast, Marge.” “Oh, Hon. Ya got Arby’s all over me.” (warning if you never saw Fargo, the humor is juxtaposed with violence). The Bird Cage showed a fond and hilarious same sex marriage.
