General - XV the Devil
What holds you back, Libra? What are you trying to escape from? This month is going to be rather challenging for you, Libra, but at the same it is extremely beneficial and is answering a long-ago prayer of yours: to bring balance back in your life.
You will be undergoing a lot of self-reflection - if that is you can see that the issues present within this month are reflections from self - you are manifesting what you need to look at within. So, when dealing with struggles in your love life, career, or anything else, know that all it takes is understanding where within you can apply change to eventually take hold of the situation and find balance again.
Be careful with overindulging in anything that involves escaping or hiding from the truths you must face this month. Rather than sticking to your responsibilities you might be prone to avoid them and fill your life with things that bring a temporary high or sense of pleasure. Take the high road this month Libra, and apply self-control in these areas where it is needed.
Relationships - 10 of Wands
Old obligations from the past and the pressures from this month are going to be rather challenging this month. January seems to be packed with a lot of hard work that involves letting go of any toxicity you might still be clinging to. 2016 was a year of letting go for many of the sun signs, but for some reason there are things, particularly in your love life, that you are prone to hold onto. This might stem from a fear of being lonely, or not knowing how to function in a world without what is trying to slip away.
Work on letting relationships, and even parts of yourself that are products from your shadow work of the past - I mean that as in those lustful flings that have been dragged on for far too long, or those relationships that don't offer true love, but the idea of it.
Masks are falling off and the veil is lifting - you can see the true colors of some people you have misjudged as being harmless and others who were on your side but you neglected because you were not ready to see the truth yet. This is a very difficult month for your relationships - if you run against the grain and try to hold onto people who are destined to leave. Leave the past in the past, let go of old commitments and get rid of the dead weight that does not serve who you are growing into.
You may also deal with a lot of pressure from members in your family or dependents that you are responsible for. This makes it hard for you to focus on your own needs and runs your batteries dry. Take a good look at who you are giving what to, and decide if it is still necessary. While you have to support your loved ones in any way you can, you don't want to enable anyone into being codependent and want to adopt a new mantra of only helping those who can also help themselves.
Career/Finances - 4 of Swords
Your biggest challenge this month will be minding your own business and allowing certain things to just be. This is hard for you, because as a natural problem solver you can't leave something alone that needs to be fixed. However, there are things that you don't need obsess about, because in time they truly will work themselves out - or they are not even real concerns that you need to be worried about. Basically, don't create problems that aren’t there this month by allowing your fears or anxieties to get the better of you.
Another task for you in January is rest. You need to ease your worried mind, tired soul and exhausted body or you risk getting sick - which you might be recovering from as well. Finances or your job has had you pretty stressed out for a while now, and it's taking its toll on your health. You might have had to really push it in order to reach certain goals, and so now you are just tired and can't push yourself any further. Taking a little time for yourself, even if just a "mental health day", will help you cope and manage the everyday stresses you must deal with on top of whatever has drained you.
If you are worried about money, relax because everything is going to be okay, because you made it so by working your butt of! Don't crack under the pressure Libra, get through this storm by giving yourself some time to find your center and heal.
Spiritual - Harmony
You crave balance, Libra. Your world has been all over the place and you are being pulled in every direction. You're tired and beyond frustrated. Finding balance will help, as after all you are the sign of the scales and influence balance in the lives of others, so why not return yourself the favor? Only when you find your center, can you achieve the harmony and peace you are seeking.
when you run against the grain, or try too hard to solve something so simple, then you find yourself out of tune and easily frustrated. When something doesn't budge, slow down and take a second look at what you're trying so hard to fix - it might not even be broken! Take some time to find your center - seek harmony this month by finding it from within.
