Six of Swords: Libra, with so much of your pain being cleared out after Venus stations direct in Leo on the 3rd, I see you feeling like your sense of purpose is back. If you’ve recently left a relationship, a job, a living situation, or some combination of these, it seems the month of September is going to be much smoother sailing for you.
The Six of Swords represents leaving a failing situation so you can finally move toward the beautiful oasis that sits on the horizon. Your life is represented by this journey from one island to the next. When you are able to look back with a smile to the life that you’ve left behind, you’ll know that you are in a state of surrender. Life does not always go the way that we planned, and that’s actually for the best. Without your thinking-mind weighing you down, you can better see all that the universe has to offer you. The new oasis that you are headed toward seems to be the missing puzzle piece to the issues you had faced in the months leading up to this moment. You are meant for more than where you came from, and it seems September will be the first time you can see this for yourself.
Eight of Swords: Libra, I see you sitting in a self-imprisoned state of mind that was brought on by fear. Although this imprisonment seems real and tangible to you now, it’s actually a figment of your imagination. The Eight of Swords shows up when there is a reminder to release yourself from suffering, so my current suggestion is to be gentle with yourself. You cannot move forward from pain when you are being so hard on yourself. Your only steps now are to get your thoughts and words straight regarding this painful situation, and start to give it both time and action to pan out.
It’s your time to sit in the truth. Your reality is being clouded, and it’s imperative that you not fall victim to what others will think or say about your actions in order to take steps out of this trap. I also see an opportunity for you to move away. If you’ve been thinking about a geographical move, I see the potential for this to happen once you’ve released yourself from this challenging situation. First you have to give this situation time and start to fall into a surrendered state of being. It’s also imperative for you to remove anyone from your life that makes you feel small or trapped.
The Hanged Man: Libra, you might find yourself having a complete overhaul of your perspective this month, and it seems to be coming from an unexpected change in your everyday experience. If you’re in the process of dating, this may prove to be a favorable month for you. Don’t let rotten apples spoil the whole barrel; instead, realize that moths will always be drawn to a flame. So you shouldn’t feel discouraged by other people’s bad behavior. Remember that you’re not responsible for other people and only responsible for yourself. For Libras who are in a relationship, you could have new clarity over whether this partner is able to meet you where you’re at or if they’re falling behind, so if needed, you can make a change once and for all about who gets access to you and your energy. When you recognize the ways that you are enmeshing yourself in other people’s experiences, you will realize where you’ve been wasting your valuable energy.
Having this energy back at your disposal will be great for the fun activities and experiences that are coming your way in July. I see this being a great month for you to try new hobbies, travel to new places, or take some time off from work to socialize with the right crowd. Let yourself shine this month. When you are in your right frame of mind, you are unstoppable and so magnetic, Libra.
Three of Swords: Libra, this may not be the card you were hoping for in June, but it is definitely one you needed. The Three of Swords is a wake-up call to anyone who has been unconsciously going through life, wandering down a path with no return. So if you’ve been feeling stuck, uninspired, or downright heartbroken, the month of June is a time to acknowledge that pain and use it for your own growth. Let this pain be a catalyst to carry you into the life you desire. It’s not unusual for the hardest moment in a person’s life to end up influencing their greatest creation. And with the swords representing air-sign energy in the tarot, this card does signify in some way that you are on the right path even if things feel dark or difficult. Remember that life was not simply meant to be lived in ease and pleasure; we need the darkness to remind us of our lightness.
In other words, the message for June is to take time away from what you’ve been doing and instead focus on the types of behaviors, habits, and routines that your highest self would be doing. I encourage you to sit in silence and stillness, and try to visualize your higher self coming to you and sitting down beside you as a friend. Ask them what it is that you need to change and what in your life is meant to stay the same, then allow your higher self to answer you without any sort of judgment toward their answers. Let the answers flow freely to you; once you awaken from this still and silent place, take some time to write down what your higher self had shared with you. Use the month of June to recalibrate your life and start to live in a way that is more aligned with your higher self than the version of you from the past. Only from this present moment can we make change, and there is no better time than now to start.
Ten of Swords: Dear Libra, I see you putting something to rest this month that’s been plaguing you for a while. If there is an aspect of your life that has reached its expiration date, it’s your job to toss it in the appropriate bin and move forward. This doesn’t mean to go crazy with the scissors cutting off everything, everyone, and every strand of hair this month. What it does mean is that you would benefit from strengthening your discernment around who (and what) deserves to take up space in your life.
And if you’ve been neglecting your family and loved ones due to getting caught up in work, romance, or something else you may not want to admit to, May will give you the chance to get back on track and make amends so you can finally move on once and for all. The future is bright once you tend to these overgrown weeds.
The Chariot: Libra, I see the month of April being filled with forward movement and new perceptions. You are being freed from the suffering of habitual thought, if you let yourself. So I ask you to take a moment and acknowledge the ways that you have caused yourself pain by fixating on the wrong people, goals, and choices. If you were to clear up that space and simply allow yourself to be in the quiet for a moment, what do you think would arise? If you are running in the wrong direction, this is the universe’s way of getting your attention and saying, “It’s okay to come back to yourself.”
If you’ve noticed yourself surrounded by negativity or the wrong crowd of people, April will be full of spring cleaning for you. Just because you’ve become comfortable with certain people does not mean that they need (or deserve) to stick around. It’s okay to walk away and never look back from people and dynamics that are void of respect and decency. You do not owe anyone anything, but you do owe it to yourself to walk away to situations that no longer serve you, Libra.
Two of Pentacles: Dearest Libra, it seems you may have to make a decision on how to move your life forward in a big way! If you have been on the fence in terms of love or career, I see there being a moment when you get to choose between two (or more) options. I believe huge blessings are on the other side of your choice.
So don’t allow the narrative of “indecisive Libras” to cloud your judgment. You are a cardinal air sign! This means you are meant to lead the way in terms of thoughts and opinions, and only those who don’t truly know you would think you’re incapable of navigating big life changes. Get out of your own way and start to look at the truth of these decisions. Which one makes you feel empowered, aligned, and confident? Go that direction. You deserve to be surrounded by colleagues, friends, and lovers who see your power even on days that you have difficulty doing so. No longer will you sit in the corner and let life pass you by. You do not need to keep doing more of the same anymore, Libra. Break life’s old curses by choosing a path that finally feels good and right for you. You deserve it.
Four of Swords: Libra, you have worked so hard to make sure that everyone around you is happy, but who’s checking in on you? You’ll have to come to the harsh realization that no one is going to care for you as well as you can care for yourself. But when you finally accept that no one is coming to save you, you’ll feel a sense of relief knowing that the sense of safety you crave is sitting on the other side of self-prioritization.
If you made yourself your top priority, what would have to change in your daily habits? Maybe consider waking up a few minutes earlier, leaving your phone on Do Not Disturb, and getting yourself outside and in the sunshine. When it feels as if the world is caving in on you, that means it’s time to pull out all of the stops and say, “Enough is enough.” There is no job, amount of money, relationship, or juggling act that is worth sacrificing your mental health and well-being, Libra. How much worse are you willing to let things get before you finally give yourself the time and space you so desperately need? So let yourself make breathing room away from the people or things who are not respecting your exhaustion or limitations and make room for yourself as well as the people who pour into you rather than draining you. You deserve a sense of peace and lightness, Libra.
Eight of Wands: Libra, if you’ve been wanting to fly the coop, January is the perfect time to do so. It looks as if you’ll find larger openings in the fence and be able to escape for a bit from your normal routine. If some of you have been considering changing your jobs or daily habits, now is the perfect time to do so. Step outside of the box with your creative projects and hobbies this month. Starting a new year off on a different note—some of you may even have an interest in singing or writing, as it looks like others are going to be moved by your creativity if you choose to share it.
Let go of the limitations you’ve created about how big, bold, and beautiful your life can be, and the rest of the year will follow suit with the brave color that you paint over January with. Some of you could be struggling with breaking out of negative thought patterns that were passed down from your family of origin. Take a long, hard look at what you grew up believing about love, life, money, and yourself due to the beginning of your story…then revel in the fact that you are not there anymore. You have more power and control over your life than you did back then. Take advantage of this by changing the way you talk about yourself and your capabilities in 2023.
