Libra Decan 2 is ruled by Saturn. The Sun charms its way through the constellations of the Crow, Flying fish, Herdsman and the Dragon from October 4 to 13. Here we find ourselves in one of the most notorious zones in fixed star astrology. This is the home of Algorab in the crow, but it’s all wrapped up in finest Venusian silk! This is where victims of the crafty crow come unstuck. You can see your opponents from the more obviously aggressive decans coming. But you just don’t expect such a low down and dirty attack from your divinely adorable Libra decan 2.
Sweet Hustlers, Stylists & Seers
Crows are birds of prey remember? Yes they have stunning blue/black raven feathers and yes they look magical, but if you don’t watch your back, the really unscrupulous ones will rook you before you can say raptor. These folk are your typical iron fist in a velvet glove, which makes them all the more dangerous.
Never, ever, ever underestimate Libra decan 2, even if they look like Barbie. A lot of them will play dumb deliberately. ( “I no speak English” was one of my dads tricks…) Gold-diggers and gigolos are found here. With Saturn as the ruler of this decan, Venus ruled Libra naturally gravitates towards a generous sugar daddy or Mummy.
Before you think I am being really unfair to Libra decan 2, let me tell you my lovely daughter and beautiful opera singer sister both have theirs Sun here (Algorab to cap it all!) and, as mentioned, my sweet rascal of a father too (Moon). I have seen the best and the worst of this decan at very close hand. There is no doubt about it, Libra decan 2 are utter opportunists. They live by their very sharp wits and dive in and out of trouble with awesome grace. They also seem to fall on their feet no matter what, like the cat with nine lives. The best side of Libra decan 2 is their ability to blend into almost any situation. They are equally at home with dukes or beggars. Tropical Libras ability to harmonise makes them great singers, artists and raconteurs
Authors Note: Please be aware the above is just an excerpt and I am working on an ebook which will cover the effect of all the personal planets and angles in this decan. This introduction is just a general impression based on the stars below, some decans are more challenging and have very fatalist interpretations of the fixed stars which cannot be sugar-coated over. A fuller and deeper examination is needed to get a well rounded understanding of the decan and this is included in the coming ebook. Some planets work better than others in the decans and this also must be considered. I included the dates of the Sun in the decan above because it is the easiest for beginners to find. But this can be misleading because your Sun decan may not be the strongest planet in your natal horoscope anyhow. It’s important to look at the whole chart to determine which is your ruling decan, and 90% of time it will not be that of the Sun. Your rising decan and the decan of it’s ruler will usually take precedence over the Sun, unless your ascendant is Leo.
