Libra Decan 1 ~ Sep 23 of Oct 3 2016. The new monthly horoscope runs as an Egyptian decan, ie 10 days. It will start as the Sun moves into a new decan and looks at what fixed stars it hits. The star interpretations are written for those born with their Sun on that degree, but the general mood of the day will carry that flavour too. The Sun in Libra decan 1 is adept at bringing peace and harmony into the most fraught situation. Watch out for an overdose of sugary sweetness however. The ironic thing about Libra decan 1 is that sometimes the push for peace can attract very aggressive and mean opposition. Either that or violence just seems to blow up for no reason at all. Because of this extreme reaction, there is a a horror of arguing at this time. In avoiding offending, there can be lots of little white lies told, in the media and to each other.

Monthly Horoscope Aspects
Sep 23 Mars conjunct Zosma. Sep 24 Mars opposite Neptune. This is very much a chivalrous aspect and carries with it all the romance of the high seas. Of course you might equally find yourself captive or captiv-ated by a rum-swilling Pirate too. This combination is extremely seductive, but with the danger of falling victim to sexual obsessions. Sep 25 Mercury square Saturn.
Sep 27 First Quarter Moon 5º Capricorn. Sun conjunct Zaniah. “Educational and studious interests, popular, social success, much pleasure, favorable for marriage.” Sep 28 Jupiter opposite Uranus can be quite fanatical in the pursuit of personal freedom. This is due to the dynamism of sparks from Uranus and amplified by fellow sky god Jupiter. This is an incredibly rebellious and forceful aspect bringing great success, especially for those involved with spiritual or social reformation. Exciting new utopias and visions for the future are created that can inspire others on their path to illumination. Sep 29 Mercury opposite Neptune.
Monthly Horoscope Birthday Stars
Libra 2º 36’ ~ Theta Bootes in Bootes the Herdsman. 4.6*
There are two minor stars here in Bootes the herdsman. The constellation “is said to give prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism.” Bootes is the custodian to the animals in his keep, whether they be the hounds, the bear or the sheep so we have more guardianship here. Bootes is supposed to be Arca, son of Zeus and Callisto who was transformed into a bear by jealous Hera. Calisto is said to be Ursa Major, the bear he watches over. Bootes is also said to represent Icarus the father of Erigone (Virgo) who follows.
Libra 3º 23’ ~ Nodus 1 in Draco the dragon. 3.2
Stars Nodus I and Edasich (See Sep 26) fall in the constellation of Draco, this is the dragon that guards the golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides. “Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and of accidental poisoning.” It also said to be the point where two meteor showers radiate from in January and March every year. Bernadette Brady says this constellation actively guards and protects.
We also find Draco in Virgo decan 1 where it is more conservative. I think the dragon has a different flavour here in cardinal Libra. It is like it’s fiercely defending treasure from being raped and pillaged, working to preserve sacred wisdom, like a Libra-rian. The apples are a symbol of Eris and her occult knowledge. There might be a deliberate holding back of these mysteries because of the power they confer. Draco ensures the recipient must be sufficiently evolved before handling such a potent weapon.
Libra 4º 23’ ~ Beta Coma Berenice in Coma Berenices, Berenices hair. 4.3
Libra 4º 31’ ~ Zaniah in the the left arm of Virgo the Virgin. 4.0
Libra 4º 57’ ~ Edasich in Draco the Dragon. 3.5
We have two stars in Coma Berenice, Berenices hair. “It is said to give a suave and well-bred manner, with great personal charm, but to lead to an idle and dissipated life. There is some love of, or ability for the stage.” The most notable star is Diadem, which is in the garland. A Diadem is also a small tiara. The myth goes that Berenice, wife of Ptolemy Euergetes offered up her hair to Venus to insure the safe return of her husband from war. “Diadem can suggest a self-sacrificing person who is motivated by love for another. In that sacrifice the person can find great strength and dignity.”
