Libra Decan 2 ~ Oct 3 to 13


Libra decan 2Libra 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.

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.

Sweet Hustlers, Stylists & Seers

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.

    Triggered in memory when reading through the list of names- Le Corbusier, one of the pioneers of modern architecture, famous in the architectural world as Picasso in the art world. The Swiss-French architect adopted his pseudonym in his 30s (circa1920), historians says adapted from his maternal grandfather’s name Lecorbesier. In French ‘corbeau’ is for raven (whereas French ‘corneille’ is for crow; raven and crows are different species of birds, their beaks and tails are different, the cries are different, presume their general behavior/characteristics differ as well, but often referred to as the same). So Le Corbusier has been referred to in English as the ‘raven/crow-like-one’. Did he know his
    astrological connection with the raven/crow and hence used this name? Or is it a coincidence, as historians believe it is from an ancestral name? …imperative question raised through your astrological blog for architectural historians to answer.

    Hi, Anette, thanx for your personal perspective on Libra decan 2. I guess in a way I can relate to your take on the effort made and the hardships of one-way street relationships. Personally, though, when I had my first saturn return and the passing of saturn through my natal stellium, amongst other changes in my life, I´ve drastically got away from situations like that. It’s been a hard couple of years, since I also have a stellium in scorpio 12th house and transiting saturn is just on the begining of that house now, so a lot to endure still…

    As for defining how that energy works in my life, I couldn’t say exactly, since I’m no astrologer, but only a self-tought enthusiast of the subject… but one thing very clear to me is the influcence of sun+saturn so tight together, with being responsible, in control of impulses and having very high standards. I can sense jupiter just around the corner, by the idealism and expecting the best from myself, others, and from life, and also by feeling that my guardian angel (or whatever one might wanna call it) works overtime a lot! lol However, that and the optimism can be drained by disappointments and delays. On the down side, there’s insecurity in certain situations. Also, I’ve been sure, since young, that patience is definetly one of the many lessons I came to learn in this lifetime. Larger social issues, specially the environment, play a big part in my life. As for pluto in all that mess, I guess it would be my desire to achieve something that really matters, the ability to dig deep, but being stubborn sometimes? I dunno, I try and try to figure myself out with the help of astrology but it’s such a huge universe that I get lost in it…

    One cool thing I read in a forum was that “natal Jupiter-Saturn conjunction symbolizes a deep-seated skepticism born from acute powers of observation that disallows the person to buy into any belief system or religion or philosophy “hook, line and sinker”. As a result, there can be a philosophical eclectism for extracting the best parts of each system and weaving them into a kind of patchwork cosmology”. I can very much relate to that.

    I also read in forums that somehow wealth was related to pluto jupiter saturn natal aspects? I haven’t seen the colour of it… =/ hahah

    Hi, uberqueenofwands! You’re very observant, aren’t you? heheh 🙂

    I very much agree with your comment, specially at the soul’s evolution part… Not only that, but I don’t believe that anything is either 100% bad nor good. So even a fixed star’s influence or energy, should have some positive outlet to it…

    On my especific case, as you said saturn-sun coul be outweighing it, since saturn is exalted in libra, as it’s said… That’s not always a good thing for me though… I can be cruel to myself at times… Speaking about that, as an astrologist, in that case is saturn combusted by the sun? Or because it’s exalted, it doesn’t work like that? How does that work really? My stelliums and geometric aspects in my natal chart confuse the hell out of me… lol XD

    By the way, you seem to be on to something, since I am a lawyer and justice is a very important theme for me. I wish I could develop the tactician part, though… as for strategies in life and such… And I’ll get on to reading your article. Thanx again! 🙂
