Renew Your Social Contracts
Libra season has emphasized seeking balance in your relationships by evaluating the way you depend on others in both healthy and unhealthy ways. Sometimes, you leave yourself in the lurch to satisfy others. Other times, you feel deeply grateful to the loved ones who support your independence. Now at the Libra Solar Eclipse, consider what you’d like to be different in your relationships and prepare to renew your social contracts.
Alter the Trajectory
Eclipses represent pivot points. This one provides an opportunity to alter the trajectory in the way you connect with others. You may have to let go of something, like a habit or belief, that once served you well. Alternately, you might have to retrieve a piece of yourself that you previously trashed. Because the eclipse is in Libra, there could be a strong desire to please others or avoid conflict altogether. Instead, think about stepping into a new level of personal power. Identify your goals in the relationship that currently holds your attention. Analyze your desires and talk about what you really want. If you rock the boat, let it rock. And remember, the intensity of this eclipse depends on the trigger points in your personal horoscope. If you have important planets between 17-24º of Libra and/or Aries, you will likely be the most strongly affected. Use your Rising sign to read below and see which social contracts in your life may be impacted.

The Libra Solar Eclipse points to transforming how you navigate the rich ground of relationship. Get familiar with the way you extend yourself to others. Sometimes, you must battle with others to defend yourself or make a point. However, you also must recognize when external conflict merely mirrors your own internal dilemmas. If you find yourself in conflict, pause to identify the true cause of your stress and then communicate your findings to those who need to know. This central theme intensifies into the next day as the Moon squares Pluto and moves into Scorpio. Keep one hand on the lever marked kindness while being deeply introspective. Resist being pulled towards resentment or self-deprecation by funneling energy into pursuits that require rigorous focus and precision.
