Sun went into  Libra on Oct 17th where it is technically debilitated on Oct. 27th at 10 degrees.  This year because Venus is with the Sun, the debilitation is technically cancelled which means that there is support to get through the problems that a debilitated Sun would create which means that working together with others and getting support or health around confidence issues will be there.

The Sun in Libra can be a cruel planet seeing status and being politically ambitious in contrast with Sun in Aries where humanitarian work and personal ambition are used to benefit the world often.

Sun in Libra loses its confidence and power but when unafflicted as we are getting, it can be excellent at team work and doing it together. Still this comes at a loss of going with ones one strengths and being lost in the crowd and learning to sacrifice personal gain and status for the good of the group.

 The Sun is moving toward the lowest point of the year of the Sun toward October 27th at 10 degrees Libra. The Sun governs health, leadership and confidence and self-esteem for everyone, so this transit can bring about health issues, depression, poor decisions in government and low self-esteem. The worse part of the transit is usually when the Sun is in the constellation of Swati, which is between October 23 – November 6th.

In early Libra the Sun is still in Chitra, Oct 17-22 (Virgo 23.20-Libra 6.40) and connected to his friend Mars who is exalted in transit now and in a stronger part of Libra is not as bad.

The Sun in Libra transit is particularly difficult for Scorpio rising and Pisces rising as it is a 12th and 8th house transits for them. Taurus rising may have trouble with it as a 6th house transit and Leo risings will particularly feel it. It may bring up poor motivation, poor financial management, headaches and addictions.

The positive side of this transit is that it may create some people that offer good sense, support, and charm and may bring out the ability to work with others better. Libra rising and Aries rising may experience this a bit more. Gemini rising and Virgos may do ok with this transit. Bottom-line is that if the dark side comes up, find ways to do good self-talk and find the fire to move on and do great things if you feel stuck. For everyone, take  care of your health this month, which means watch your diet and addictions and stay on top of your immune system.

The transit of the Sun into Vishaka nakshatra November 6 – 19th connects it to Jupiter and it uplifts it so the worst part is the transit in the constellation Swati when it is connected with Rahu October 23 – November 6th. Our Leo president, Donald Trump will probably not do well with this transit as it can bring out the darkest part of ego when the lesson is learning to work together.
