Entering Into Libra

My husband, dog, and I took a trip down to Redding, CT, this past weekend. We took a few wrong turns that turned out to be serendipitous, and in return, Connecticut's parks and forests rewarded us handsomely. Libra season is a time to celebrate, socialize, and revel in Libra's beauty.  

 Celebrating Libra!

But I was also struck by Libra's awesome power and reminded of the great balancing act she must play.

We have to earn our way into her, with the understanding that to make all of this beauty happen, keep up appearances, caring for aesthetics, and catering to all sides of things, we should bring the fruits of our labor, other than the ones Libra bestows upon us.

While Libra performs her balancing act, let us erect statues, and keep up the Virgoan, work end of the bargain.

As we've just recently moved into Libra, I feel confident in the work I've done and am ready to pass the sun's baton to Libra. Relating, such a Libran word, to the myth of Persephone, I as a Virgo am prepping to go back to the underworld, happy to enjoy Libra's beauty for the next month.
