Oh the lessons you have endured over the course of 2010. You’re not the same people-pleasing darling you were a mere 12 months ago. On the contrary darling — you are in the midst of a powerful process of cultivating the kind of backbone that makes greatness. Thanks to big daddy Saturn you’re learning your lessons well in relinquishing laziness, strengthening discipline, and realizing your authority. You’re taking yourself more seriously in the arenas where it matters most. (Read: career and getting paid what you’re worth.)

Relationships bring plenty of passion, drama and unexpected plot twists especially during the spring. By the time May rolls around you’ll be dealing with an unprecedented amount of planetary energy firing up your relationship sector. With six planets including Venus, your ruler and Jupiter, the planet of abundance lining up in your partnership sector you’ll be anything but lonely. The challenge lies in staying true to your own needs without getting lost in the persuasive me-me-me demands of your significant others.

Although some of Saturn’s lessons will weigh in on a heavier note and perhaps depriving you of any former easy-outs or shortcuts, you have the uncanny ability to take it all in stride. There’s something to be said for the inherent Libran laid-back approach to life’s challenges. But under current planetary duress you may join the ranks of the stressful millions in your quest for regaining inner peace and unshakable equilibrium. Forever striving for that elusive balance, you’re being put through the cosmic ringer when it comes to finding and holding your own with others. But you will get there Libra — just you wait and see!
