Libra Decan 3 ~ Oct 13 to 23 (20º – 30º)

Libra decan 3

Libra Decan 3 is ruled by Jupiter and Mercury (Gemini triplicity). The Sun permeates through the constellations of the Virgin, the Herdsman, the Flying Fish, the Great Ship, the Centaur and the Watersnake from October 13 to 23. There is a big feeling of transition here while we sail into the unknown. At the same time, as we dip our feet into the occult, there is great potential for illumination. These natives often go through a period of initiation, maybe an endurance test that involves some suffering. Libra decan 3 tends to have to go through some tough times where they pushed to prove themselves. They may be harshly judged because their ideas or behaviour is controversial in some way. These folk may be exiled and painted out to be the bad guys even though Libra decan 3 actually see themselves as whiter than white. Anti-heros, fallen souls and the victims of society will fascinate them, but ironically in helping societies outcast, the Libra decan 3 becomes the outsider themselves. Libra decan 3 cannot help but pick up the collective mirror and reflect back to the world its shadow side.

Brilliant White Intellect & Shadow Workers

Austin Coppock points out that this decan is attributed the goddess Nemesis, but that the myth itself has nothing to do with its general English use. Still, I can see that possibility in the negative expression of this decan with some natives being demonised. Austin says “Nemesis was not the archenemy, but a force which restored balance to life’s chaotic wheel.. Her name means ‘She who distributes what is due’ and she was dispatched to afflict those whose crimes had gone unpunished and to bring low those who had not earned their good fortune.” [1]

Jupiter ruling this decan gives them the zeal to make the planet a better place. Libra decan 3 have a great need to purify the earth, this can be intellectual or physical cleansing. The dark side of this can be seen through….  This is an excerpt (See below for full Libra decan 3 report.)

Sun Libra 3

Foramen 22º: “Danger of shipwreck” Spica 23º: “Great and lasting preferment, eminent dignity, immense wealth, great happiness to native’s parents and children, help from friends among clergy, favorable for public and legal affairs.” Arcturus 24º: “ Success through slow and patient plodding, friends among clergy, favorable for gain and for dealing with the public and lawyers.”

Libra decan 3The Sun is in its fall in Libra in general, and has no dignity in decan 3 at all. However the Sun is saved by the great fortune of both Spica and Arcturus. The closer the Sun is to the middle of the decan the better. The concept of balance here is stronger because these angels appear to have ‘fallen’. Sun Libra 3 can be quite brilliant, therefore they attract a lot of envy. Those that cannot stand to seem them succeed will be forever trying to knock these folk off their pedestals. Sometimes however the ribbing or egg throwing can be justified if the natives really haven’t done anything worthy to justify their adoration. One thing that Sun decan 3 develops then is a great sense of balance. They are constantly making small adjustments to their stance, rather like someone doing a balance pose in Yoga. I think this balancing act is why there is such a good selection of health gurus in the list below.

There are also some folk who are famous for just being famous, due to the Arcturian luck of being in the right place at the right time. Others in the list are either just very beautiful or in the limelight due to having famous partners, parents or relatives. Sun Libra 3 seems to be born lucky, though later in the decan I think they would need to work harder to hold on to their good fortune. So even though the Sun is indeed in its fall here, it does not seem to have prevented the success of the examples below. It could be the case that the fixed stars really do have the kind of power that helps people become actual stars. Britain’s Davina McCall is an interesting example in that she is famous for hosting ‘Big Brother’ which turns nobodies into C list celebrities overnight. For me the luck of this decan, if there is no real talent behind it, can be very glitzy but vacuous, and represent fame for fame’s sake

    I was born 10.19.1954. I have been a victim of pre verbal abuse. I am intuitive, compassionate, fair and altruistic. The abuse has turned out to be the greatest gift…
