Libra Weekly Horoscope from May 10 to May 16
How close is "too close," Libra? Those waters get tested this Tuesday, May 11, when the year's only new moon in Taurus beams into your eighth house of intimacy and seduction. Take an honest look: Could your friendly demeanor be covering up deep-seated trust issues? Conflict is something you'd rather avoid (unless you're sticking up for the underdog).
But trying to keep "peace at any price" with neighbors, lovers, coworkers and family could be costing you true connection. Tuesday's challenge? Drop the mask! Not the literal one you've been wearing for the past year, but the metaphoric shield you use to keep others at a distance. We're not suggesting you spill family secrets to the mail carrier, but when it comes to your innermost circle, STOP pretending everything's "GREAT!" when there are some issues brewing.
By the same token, don't swing to the opposite extreme of dramatizing and catastrophizing. This is a NEW moon, meaning it's the ribbon cutting for a fresh six-month cycle. You have until the corresponding full moon on November 19 (which is a power-packed lunar eclipse) to sort through differing viewpoints and create the optimal win-win for both sides. Shared finances may be under the microscope, like, who pays for what? Maybe it's time to hash out a new arrangement, Libra; one that feels more equitable. Don't feel compelled to split everything down the middle. Nowadays, time is as much a currency as money. If one of you pays the car note and the other keeps the household running, you might be able to rebalance the load.
This sultry lunar lift could get your engines purring. Looking for love? You may encounter someone who lights your fire in a mind-body-soul kind of way. Explore! It might take until the November 19 lunar eclipse to figure out the right setting for this rarified gem. In the meanwhile, enjoy the getting-to-know-you process. If you honestly feel ready to take the plunge, you may cement a relationship with rings, keys, or other rituals.
On Thursday, raise a glass of good cheer to your health—and opt for a green and clean concoction. Vitality-boosting Jupiter sets up camp in Pisces and your sixth house of wellness and healthy routines until July 28. This is the first of a trio of Jupiter in Pisces laps. The red-spotted planet visits this realm twice more, from December 28, 2021, to May 10, 2022, and again from October 28 to December 20, 2022. Get ready to tap the kind of vitality and strength you haven't felt in years. And we haven't even mentioned the radiant glow that will come from the inside.
You don't have to do this in one fell swoop, but since Jupiter is larger than life AND supports bold moves, start strong! Begin with a deep decluttering mission (so you'll know what you need to deal with) of the pantry and fridge. After you've cleared out the energy-zapping, processed junk food, replace with farmer's market fare and nutrient-rich staples. Stream workouts you actually enjoy and commit to showing up regularly. (Pro tip: Put the days and times right in your calendar like you would for any other engagement.) For added motivation, pre-reward yourself with a couple cute new gym or yoga outfits for motivation.
The sixth house also governs your daily work, and freedom-loving Jupiter could liberate you from the shackles of the 9-5 grind. While you need your entertainment funds, Libra, who says you can't make more by being your own boss or working as an independent contractor? With Jupiter also nudging you towards greater career fulfillment, it may be time to set up that LLC and go into business for yourself. If nothing else, you may work more "intrapreneurially" between now and July 28, spearheading initiatives or even starting up a new division within a company's ecosystem.
