Georgia Nicols' Libra Forecast for 2006
The test of good manners is to be able to put up pleasantly with bad ones.
The Year 2006
In 2006, Saturn is in Leo for the entire year for the first time since 1977. (Many will see a correlation.) This will give enduring form to creative expression! (The movie Star Wars, which opened in 1977 has become part of our culture's artistic icons.)
Saturn will encourage a concrete expression of theatre and the arts at both personal and civic levels. It will also encourage a stricter more traditional methodology in schools.
Jupiter's passage through Scorpio will alter how we deal with death. In the 50s, we built schools and playgrounds for the Baby Boomers. This year we will lay the groundwork to help them die with dignity and loving support. (Death will be a big business by 2013-14.)
In many ways, new opportunities will arise out of situations of loss. "May the Force be with you."
The Envelope Please...
No one is more affected by their surroundings than you. You'd live in a pup tent rather than suffer with overhead fluorescent lighting. You have impeccable taste. You appreciate the relationships of colour, composition and texture. Your bathroom towels match. Your wardrobe is tastefully coordinated; you always know what colour is 'in'. But dahling, your antennae are finely tuned to more than your environment, you know people as well. You're a natural psychologist. (It comes from years of people watching.) Others seek your good counsel. Partnership is of course, paramount to you! You want somebody in your life. You hate fighting and loud noises; you need harmony. You're the epitome of charm, tact and diplomacy. And you always look fabulous! (Needless to say, we can take you anywhere.)
Your Shady Past
Around 1989 was a turning point. You needed to create a home for yourself. This is a major deal for your sign. (You don't do drab.) In the early to mid 90s, children became an increasing focus. Your hands were full. Nevertheless, you stepped up to the plate in 1996 (looking runway wonderful) and grabbed your career in both hands. This increased ambition might have taken its toll on relationships. C'est la vie. One does what one can. But things did improve at home that year. Around 2001, travel, publishing and education offered exciting opportunities. (You took them.) Then came 2003-04, when some heartfelt dreams came true. Last year, relationships picked up. This was important for you, because you're not a sign that can go it alone.
Which brings us to 2006
This year you will work harder than ever to create the life you've always wanted. You're testing the Dream Machine. Whatever standard of justice matters to you, you will claim it. Whatever you've wanted to own, you will buy it. That's why it's important to be clear about what you need and want. If you're working, you will earn more money this year. (This is one reason you can buy all these goodies!) Not only will you enjoy what you acquire; you'll learn more about yourself by what you do to get these things, and what you do to maintain them. Let there be no guilt! You earned the right to get this stuff. For the last few years, you've been in a strong position. You've taken your power. This strong influence continues to be in play this year. You're not the financial wizard Taurus is; be careful about going into debt so deep you're drowning. But do look forward to wonderful purchases that please and excite you. You appreciate beautiful things; and you love to tastefully decorate your living space. Enjoy your good fortune.
Is the future like the present only longer?
Your optimism holds next year; in fact, if you can believe it -- it increases! However, by 2007-08, you will start to pare down your belongings. It will feel right to do so. The opportunity to de-clutter your life will be a welcome one. At the same time, expect to travel more in 2007-08. An increased optimism plus a belief in your future encourage you to explore writing and educational opportunities. (Write that book.) Happy times with siblings and neighbours are also on the menu. Gosh.
In a galaxy far far away...
A couple of years from now, real estate investments (whether speculative or to live in) look cherry! Around that time (2008-09) everything to do with home, family and where you live will be enriched and rewarding. Nevertheless you will enter an entirely new scene around 2009-10. That will be the beginning of a new 30-year cycle for you. (Reminiscent of 1980-81.) Through all of these years and into the future -- your creativity is hot. Act now and explore whatever opportunities are at hand so that you can make the most of this promising future. Ta da!
My Mantra for 2006
Things are good, and getting better!
Be the best you can be
You have a deep sense of fair play and honesty. Because of this, you might attract selfish or overly independent people to you. It's as if they yearn to learn balance and integration from you. You're aware of your own needs separate and apart from the needs of a partnership. You're intelligent and can embrace inconsistencies. Your subtle appreciation of justice and of what is fair teaches others how to keep their own identity in the context of a relationship. You can also teach society how to be civilized. The greatest legal minds surely have Libra in their charts. Your appreciation for beauty, design and fashion create a beautiful environment for your family, your friends and indeed, the world. You teach others the serenity of a comfortable, harmonious atmosphere. Live long and prosper!
Stuff Every Self-respecting Libran Knows
Your ruling planet is Venus. Your symbol is the Scales. Libra is a Masculine Cardinal Sign. (The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. They're the signs of the changing seasons - the switch hitters. They initiate things. They're idea people. They make things happen. "Let's invite everyone over for dinner!" Sound familiar?) Libra is an Air Sign and it rules the Kidneys. (Drink lots of water.) Your sign rules the Seventh House, which governs Marriage and Partnerships. Even though you love beauty and are hip to fashion, I won't comment on gemstones because there's disagreement about them. (But many of you are partial to the colour dusty rose.)
Libra in the Bedroom
You're a deliciously sexy sign and you surrender easily to love. You have imagination; and you appreciate subtle nuances. (You know what a feather can do.) Air Signs are often kinky. You love drama and a great setting. You've got the boudoir thing down pat with candles, mirrors, lace, and transparent, highly flammable whatevers. (Shee!) You like lots of pillows and comfort. You have an eye for beauty. You're never vulgar; and because you like to please, you know how to satisfy. The small of your back is erotic. (The kidneys --remember?) You're all charm and gentleness but sometimes you're an animal! (Cute for contrast.) You understand the art of seduction. You tease, but you like to be persuaded. (But you can be shy to express what you want.) Afterwards, you love to sleep. And sleep. And sleep.
