This vivid hibiscus grew in my front yard.

Unfortunately the tree has died since but

this photo I took is a testament to the loveliness

of the flowers this tree produced.

The beauty of nature is a spiritual wonder.

Sagittarian Nature: The Archer Centaur – half-human, half-horse, which symbolises the Sagittarian, conveys the underlying spiritual, mystical nature of people under this star sign, and their quest and defence of “The Truth”. Sagittarians often aspire to self-awareness and feel inspired to assist others to find their deeper nature. They are wisdom-seekers. Sagittarians tend to get bored easily, so they need something substantial and purposeful on which to focus their mind and energies. Sagittarians are often highly creative, if not in the visual arts, creative with words or innovative in their thinking.




Sagittarius Overview 2013

Many Sagittarians will begin 2013 away from home, enjoying overseas destinations, or camping or travelling closer to home, but for those Sagittarians not away from hearth and home, 2013 starts quietly and pleasantly. As 2013 progresses, Sagittarians will find this year full of surprises, feeling a growing urge to discover and explore life, and experiencing a need to try out new activities or skills. This is the year to finally get done what has been postponed or possibly seemed to hard to accomplish prior.

Sagittarians will be moving forward full steam ahead this year, and finding they possess the ability to overcome any obstacles or reasons that may have stumped them in the past. Jupiter and Pluto’s interactions, means you will be feeling more optimistic, and sensing that any restrictions can be dealt with effectively, in order to advance.

Sagittarians have a tendency to love their freedom, and this freedom may be tested by an authority figure this year. But it is unlikely the Sagittarian will remain “fettered” for any length of time, breaking free to discover new career or educational options. Since Sagittarians are motivated by their dreams, they will rarely rest until they find what they have been searching for, and this year will be no exception. Independent Sagittarians will be feeling a sense of inner strength and resolve they may not have experienced for some time, filling them with a certainty that even their biggest dreams can be made possible now.




Expect the unexpected this year Sagittarians, as huge changes are likely to arise, many of them unplanned. Past experiences, or people from your past, could impact on your life this year with most of these incidents revealing what has been hidden, or moving your life forward in unusual ways. Sagittarians are known for being decidedly straightforward, but this year may require a more diplomatic approach if you are to accomplish all that you wish.

Sagittarians are known for their personal strength and ability to handle adverse conditions, but fortunately you will not have to cope with challenges alone this year, with family, friends, and others offering to help.

You will be pleased by a reward or accolade which you will receive due to your hard work and persistence. Enjoy the limelight and use this attention to further your long term goals. Wonderful opportunities are likely to arise this year, more than once during 2013, but ensure you spot them quickly, as they will not be around long, so take advantage of these offers or ventures immediately. Sagittarians who are looking for work may find short term study or training will present them with the greatest opportunities. There will be a great deal of competition for prime employment opportunities so by developing other skills, or acquiring extra knowledge, together with your Sagittarian charm, you will be in the best position to seize that job you have your eye on.

For those Sagittarians with partners, it may take some convincing that time spent on cherished goals will be worth it in the long run, and that your efforts will not distract you from your loved ones. Sagittarians generally love deep discussions with those closest to them, and through these vital talks, your loved ones will find their minds put at ease.

This year holds the potential for growing harmony and joy in your relationships but it is important that you reveal your vulnerable side with your partner in 2013 in order for your relationship to grow beyond its present boundaries. There will be some Sagittarians whose relationships may end, but it will provide an opportunity for a new, happier relationship to take its place within the next two to three years. Valuable communication will provide valuable progress, not only in your closest love connections, but in your work or business life.



2013 is a year of advancement, and whatever you achieve during the first half of the year will prepare you for the important happenings and people who will enter your life during the second half of 2013. Until mid-June, opportunities in your work or business sector, and success in smaller matters are likely to present themselves, though be prepared to also deal with many routine tasks during this period.

Those in less exciting, less fulfilling jobs, may find that their consistent work efforts will pay off, bringing rewards later in the year. Between January and mid-April, try to avoid getting involved in disagreements or work tensions, as possible frustrations perhaps inspired by Mars in retrograde, could make you even less tactful than usual. Instead, channel your energies into finding new, constructive strategies to move your goals forward, particularly from the end of April onwards.

This year, Sagittarians will find their optimism will pay off, and you will find yourself finally overcoming your obstacles. Your progress will amaze even you, though it is important to take time to make important decisions, never losing sight of the fact that each step is crucial on your journey and that ill-considered choices may affect the chance for sustained success. Family life will generally be happy during 2013, and interactions with loved ones will become more harmonious than previous years.



Career and Business
The first half of 2013 holds the potential to be extremely favourable for Sagittarian professionals and business people. Rewards and success for professional skill, expertise or excellent work will provide the foundation for future opportunities or even wider acclaim. Growing income through improved or increased skills or knowledge will also benefit many Sagittarians during 2013.
Enjoying the fruits of your labour will be a wonderful aspect of this year for Sagittarians. Projects will be completed to such an excellent degree that others will notice and you will benefit more than you expected. Those working in research, teaching or business will find themselves gaining recognition or appreciation that will put you above your peers. Your work will not only be noticed by superiors but praised and used as an example of the standard to which others need to aspire.
Those working in administration or law will find 2013 to be a year of enormous change. Change which may initially look like challenging situations, but ultimately these changes will push you into a new phase in which you will find new opportunities and growing success.

Sagittarians will be asked by a superior to take on a more important role at work, but though it may be an “acting” or temporary role, this task may turn out to give you skills or expertise that puts you in the perfect position for a more permanent, improved work position.

Sagittarians will enjoy extra income through investments, an extra job, or a sideline venture.


















Love and Relationships
Harmony and happiness are on offering for Sagittarians during 2013. Many Sagittarians will feel ready to settle down with that special someone, while others will be inspired to nurture the close relationships they already have in their lives. Those Sagittarians ready to marry this year, will find themselves feeling overjoyed at the love they feel for their partner, feeling that they are not losing their freedom but now have the chance to share their freedom and love for life with their special someone. Single Sagittarians will find new trusted friends will enter their lives, bringing a sense of increasing joy and harmony.

This year will see Sagittarians’ love life transforming, with those under this star sign finding a stability or understanding that may have been lacking in previous years. Many Sagittarians will be dropping any defences or masks on which they have relied previously to keep themselves from getting hurt, finally allowing others to get closer and enjoying some emotional ties more than you could possibly have imagined. Increasing depth of connectedness will achieved, and Sagittarians will feel the urge to seek out love, or nurture existing bonds. For those who have long hoped for love, it will finally flourish, arriving in an unexpected way. You may not at first recognize that love is blossoming, but eventually, when trust and friendship is established, it will be clear that you are both compatible, respect one another, thoroughly enjoy each others company, and have similar aspirations and values. Sagittarians are far from boring, and therefore need a partner that complements their distinctive personality, and in 2013, that person will be in your life by no later than the end of 2013.

Sagittarians are the sign of honesty and freedom, and relationships that blossom this year do so because they honour these two aspects that Sagittarians hold so dear. Relationships will exhibit an openness and straightforwardness, and even though partnered relationships will be committed relationships, neither will cling out of fear or jealousy, allowing both parties in the relationship to be free to be themselves and strive for their personal dreams without restriction.
Single Sagittarians will be enjoying the pleasure of many social occasions and establishing important friendships and associations with a wide variety of reliable, interesting people.



Health and Vitality
During the first few months of 2013, Sagittarians need to watch tension levels and stomach sensitivities, however the year will generally be one in which most Sagittarians will be feeling physically strong and capable of addressing any health issues which may arise. Lucky Sagittarians are generally healthy by default, but sometimes take their physical fortitude for granted, pushing themselves too hard, overdoing it, and not getting enough sleep, which could possibly lead to fatigue or ill health. Sagittarians typically like to maintain their fitness levels which means they often have a high degree of vitality. They tend to be athletic, outdoorsy, and extremely physically active.

2013 will tend to be a high energy year for Sagittarians, with lots of activities and enough energy to get everything done. Ensure that you are getting enough sleep and avoiding intake of poor foods or chemicals which may upset your system and deplete your vitality and capacity to achieve your goals. To avoid headaches, colds or flu, avoid pushing yourself too hard, or ignoring your body’s signals to nurture it through rest and nutritious food.




2013 in a Nutshell, Sagittarius:
Overall, this is a very good year for Sagittarians. It provides plenty of opportunities for progress, recognition and success. For Sagittarians striving for a more fulfilling love or social life, 2013 provides the option for increasing harmony and joy between partners, family and friends. For the adventurous Sagittarius, there are options for travel and a new job that holds the potential for growing reward and fulfilment. The key word for Sagittarians this year is “Progress”! There is nothing that can hold you back this year, as long as you are ready to take the action necessary in the direction of your dreams. 2013 looks like a year in which you could thrive, Sagittarius, as long as you don’t hold yourself back. Victory IS possible!

Scorpio Personality:
Scorpio’s are intelligent, witty, sensuous, and strong. They are fabulous company because they are knowledgeable and deep, but don’t cross a Scorpio because they will let you know in no uncertain terms that you are out for good! You seldom get a second chance with a Scorpio if you have let them down, but if you treat a Scorpio with respect, they are incredibly loyal, standing up for those they care about, against all odds – a true friend, indeed! Scorpios are fun! They have a twinkle in their eye, and a hint of a smile which quickly turns into a beaming grin when they see you have suddenly got the clever, humorous thing they have just said, that everyone else has missed. Life is never dull with a Scorpio.


Forecast 2012
This year provides the opportunity for Scorpios who have been dealing with changeable circumstances in their personal life to finally let go of limiting situations. New projects, and new starts, are highlighted, and there will be a strong urge to nurture a new skill or hobby. It is time to review life and release old ideas that may have been restricting your potential and success. Last years issues will be dealt with, and new relationship hopes are likely to bring a few interesting surprises. Health is likely to improve, making you feel more vital and ready to move forward towards important goals. 2012 is an excellent year to make new friends and establish stronger bonds with a couple of work colleagues.

There will be times in 2012 that circumstances will force you to take stock of where you life is heading. This is a wonderful opportunity to consider moving into an area you would prefer to channel your energies, rather sticking to something that you believe is expected of you, or that you have always done. Sporadic delays throughout 2012 may be frustrating but will provide you with the opportunity to reflect and start again with renewed vigour.

This will be a special year for accessing your spiritual and mystical talents and insights. Vivid dreams or flashes of wisdom will help you deal with situations that otherwise would be decidedly more tricky to handle. Your creative side will become stronger, which may express itself in day-to-day life through beautifying your living space or garden, or writing that blog which you had planned to set up. You are likely to enjoy the creative process more than ever before. This year is a foundation year, meaning that important choices you make about your future will have a impact for many years to follow. Focus on what you want to experience, learn, and achieve, and channel your energies in that direction and the outcome will be better than expected in the years ahead.


SCORPIO FORECAST FOR 2013

Scorpios are the most varied of people, ranging from the talkative to the quiet, deep, brooding individual, and sometimes all rolled into one! However, all Scorpios are known for their strength and desire to adhere to their principles, whatever the consequences. Scorpios are also known for being caring, loving, extremely loyal and generous. These exceedingly trustworthy Scorpios, hold to their promises, and form strong bonds with friends. Those under this sign are the perfect friend with whom to share a secret because once they have put the secret in the “vault”, it stays there. Scorpios possess a keen mind and when they work at their goals have many talents to draw upon to aid them in the journey towards success.

This year will prove to be one of exploration and excitement with numerous opportunities to liven up your social life and establish, or improve, important connections with others. One new bond form could also turn out to be a positive lifelong friendship or love relationship. Sudden changes are likely, especially in the beginning of the year, but you will be in the right mode to handle these redirections and turn these changes into opportunities for personal growth and advancement.


Scorpios are known for their passionate nature and 2013 will probably test the Scorpio’s emotional personality. To achieve love life objectives, Scorpios will find a calm, commonsense approach will provide the most favourable outcome.

This year is the call to action. If you have been waiting for a change, or worrying about shifts occurring around you, it may be time to apply your own efforts in the direction of your own choice and aspirations. Procrastination is no longer an option because this year signals a new stage of your life, and if you wish it to work out well, you have to actively steer it towards your chosen goals. It is also time to let go of all hurts and grievances, for these burdens will only restrict the most positive unfolding of your path. Whatever you wish to achieve, it is now the optimum phase to start paddling in that direction, but be patient as it may take a while to get there.

There will a number of challenges to deal with on your path during 2013, but they will be ones you can handle if you stay in a hopeful mindset and work on developing the skills necessary to make your dreams a reality. It is likely that there will be hard work involved, but the outcome will be worth the effort.


In the work or business environment, some people will be less open to change as you will be, so in order to keep the peace, try not to become embroiled in tension between various work mates, and avoid “speaking your mind” if it is not entirely necessary. Luckily, 2013 could also provide some excellent opportunities for a job change if you are interested in shifting to a new position.
Single Scorpios will be in the mood to nurture friendships, and possibly cultivate a loving friendship into something more.

Scorpios will be feeling less secretive and ready to share their deepest feelings with someone with whom they are developing a special connection. You will be motivated by a strong sense of growing purpose which may encourage you to take on a more influential role at work, or within an organization or group linked to a passionate interest.

Many Scorpios will feel the need to update their image, either for themselves, job change or in their quest for love, and although Scorpios may be a little nervous about what is involved to achieve this transformation, the results will be sensational! As a result of this personal metamorphosis, relationship dynamics may change, allowing the space for further improvement or growth in relationships. Some old connections will be released, not due to conflict, but because these are associations that no longer serve a purpose for either party. The letting go will be gradual and less difficult than expected. Forgiveness is not usually as easy process for Scorpio’s but 2013 will see people of this sign letting go of past hurts by forgiving one or more for past indiscretions. It does not mean that what others did was okay, but that you no longer want to carry the burden one step further.

The first part of 2013 attracts two or more new alliances which are harmonious and supportive, but do not divulge too much to someone until they have proven themselves trustworthy. Many people entering your life this year will be either fascinating or energetic, but all curious about life and its meaning, which is a quality that inspires and enthralls Scorpios. For single Scorpios, there will be an attractive distraction that will cross your path. Scorpios need depth in their partner’s nature to sustain a happy relationship, so unless this attractive someone has that quality, offering your heart to them is probably not particularly advisable.



2013 is likely to be a thrilling year for Scorpios, particularly those who are willing to launch themselves into their desired endeavours and reaching out to new connections that could reinvigorate their social life, or if single, maybe even their love-life. At times you may be feeling the need to retreat into quietness to restore your energy levels, but other than this, 2013 is going to be a busy year filled with interesting activities, changes, and readjustments that dramatically change the look of your life, but ultimately, for the better.

LOVE
This could be a thrilling year for single Scorpios! Adventure and of course, passion, will be on offering for those under this intensely emotional sign so if you like the sounds of that, it might be worth making the most of 2013. The only block to your love life blossoming is holding on to old hurts and pining for someone who has moved on. Set your love sights on more viable options and your relationship status is likely to change, for the better. A year of many invitations to enjoyable social activities, and accepting these offers will help to open up your love life to potential improvement.


The normally secretive, deep Scorpio will be feeling the urge to open up, speaking about their feelings and thoughts they normally keep to themselves. Those under this sign will be feeling ready to trust being more open and vulnerable emotionally than Scorpios have been for a long time. There may some ups and downs on the relationship front this year, but 2013 contains a great of potential for happiness and positive outcomes if you are willing to work through any challenges. Circumstances may require you to be clear about your affections and what you ultimately desire from the relationship rather than keeping your cards close to your chest. Speak your feelings loud and clear, and you will discover whether this is the relationship you have been hoping for, or that it would be best to be open for another, more compatible option. The promise of enduring love is offered in 2013, but only if you are willing to take a risk, being emotionally vulnerable and unlocking your heart Scorpio, and try to keep your tendency to over-react to a minimum. You are a lot of fun Ms/Mr Scorpio, show your intelligence and playful side, and your love-life is likely to shine.

Work, Business, and Finance

Offers and rewards related to work or business are likely to be encouraging and beneficial in 2013, opening doors to new goals and directions you didn’t even know existed until now. The types of professional opportunities you are hoping for, may present themselves when you least expect them, so keep your eyes and ears open at all times, and nurture contacts with those you know in your preferred field of work. Joint projects are likely to turn out successfully if you make it clear that you respect the input and insights of your work colleague; but if you don’t, you may find tact and diplomacy will provide a more favourable outcome. New knowledge acquired through training or study will be invaluable for your career path or business this year, though you may have to reorganize your daily schedule in order to incorporate this activity. Networking connections with people outside your occupation will provide fresh insights and information that will be extremely useful to your career or business path for the long term, so make sure you are listening and learning from your interactions.

2013 could see a new ambition or idea which may change your career or business path dramatically, probably for the better. Those in creative professions or business are likely to achieve a great accolade or opportunity, resulting in significant improvements, both in finances and reputation, though this may take a while to materialize. Be prepared to reach new heights professionally this year, due to your personal efforts and persistence rather than luck. Someone is likely to suggest a new role or skill they believe you would excel at, and they are probably right, so investigating your potential in this area may be work the effort. You have some untapped abilities that others will recognize that you have not yet discovered, so maybe it is worth considering their input if you wish to open the doors to new career opportunities. Profits will improve in the second half of 2013, but Scorpios will feel the need to be cautious as to how that money will be spent, which is very “un-scorpion” indeed. Shares and investments will provide a healthy dividend, particularly in the second half of 2013. This could turn out to be a profitable year for Scorpios as long if they throw themselves into the necessary tasks rather than simply pondering the possibilities from the side-lines. Effort will be rewarded.


Health and Vitality
Mid-year aim to keep your immune system strong by healthy living and attitudes and you may be able to keep the bugs at bay, but for those Scorpios who have been lax, you might be in for some rest and recuperation time. Increasing duties at work may encourage Scorpios to improve their approach and methods of relaxation which will help prevent or heal digestive ailments. September sees an increased vigour and vitality in your life and body, probably due to efforts on your part to improve your lifestyle and habits.

.Summing up…

Krishnamurti - The Challenge of Change (documentary video) -

The Challenge of Change is the compelling story of one of the greatest spiritual teacher of the 20th century, from his childhood discovery in 1909 to his lifelong talks with large audiences in most parts of the world until his death in 1986.

Through the Theosophical Society of which she was the President, Annie Besant, who had adopted him and his brother, proclaimed Krishnamurti to be the World Teacher who had been historically foretold and expected by the Society. Krishnamurti rejected any special status when he dissolved the Order of the Star that had been set up around him, declaring that “Truth is a Pathless Land”, and denying that there could be any authority in religious matters. This remarkable story, told through archival film and photographs, is a valuable introduction to Krishnamurti’s life and teaching. There are excerpts from his many talks, as well as an interview made for the film. He spoke not as a guru, saviour or master but as one who called for the awakening of intelligence in all human beings.

Documentary on Self-Esteem. Watch the video...

Montaigne on Self-Esteem (Part 4)- Documentary inspired and hosted by Alain de Botton, based on his book The Consolations of Philosophy. "Looks at the problem of self-esteem from the perspective of Michel de Montaigne (16th Century), the French philosopher who singled out three main reasons for feeling bad about oneself – sexual inadequecy, failure to live up to social norms, and intellectual inferiority – and then offered practical solutions for overcoming them."

Libra Forecasts 2012



2012 will prove to be an extremely important and potentially very successful year for Libras, particularly in finances and long term projects. Libras, symbolized by the zodiac sign of the scales, tend to emanate a calmness and stability, helping to attract fortunes favours and pleasant responses from their interactions with others. Librans are known for their friendly, considerate nature, and ability to smooth over disagreements between others through their calming demeanour. They are usually the voice of reason which also assists them in their work life, exuding an air of intelligence, capability and leadership. Often cultured and possessing a great deal of integrity, Librans are often popular, sought after by others as companions, lovers, and colleagues.

Saturn will be in your sign until October, providing the perfect influence to finish a project or course, and allowing you to release parts of your life that no longer serve you. The only thing that stands in your way is your tendency towards second guessing, or becoming confused by the seeming validity of all possible options.

Saturn’s influence will provide opportunities to delve into, and nurture, your inner strength, encouraging you to take on responsibilities and commitments that you may not have felt capable of adopting in the past. Those who may have been disappointed or unsuccessful previously, will feel the courage to face their fears and enter into a new phase despite the risks, and find that this time, goals can now be achieved.
Librans are known for being kind and fair to everyone, possessing impeccable manners and taste, and typically popular; but in 2012, the influence of Saturn may result in Librans having to deal with a few people who do not respond to their friendly, thoughtful demeanour. Although Librans may find this frustrating, it can also be a wonderful lesson in patience and adaptability. It can help develop resilience and the ability to deal with testing situations, cultivating the traits necessary to eventually come out triumphant. When things do not go quite the way a Libran wants, it often takes them a great deal of effort to maintain the right frame of mind, but luckily, they have the ability to accept difficult, emotional situations; to be considerate and fair to everyone involved. This fairness means that Librans often make excellent lawyers. They also possess a talent and passion for creativity, which also makes many Librans gifted writers, photographers, and artists.


There will be changes in the work area, with some leaving or being moved to other premises, which will alter the energy at your place of employment. For some Librans, a complete work change is likely. Many will also enjoy the beginning of a new relationship, spicing up life, and bringing back a sense of exuberance that may have been missing for a while.

Pisces will work its magic on the sign of Libra in 2012, helping to unlock new ideas, and aspirations, assisting you in your push to improve your position at work. Also vivid dreams, some with insightful guidance, will help you to see your life from a new perspective, and provide a fresh approach to achieving your goals.
By October, Saturn, which has been in your sign for approximately two years, will leave and your focus will shift to learning, knowledge, and wisdom gained from experience. Travel, or preparation for travel, is also likely during this period.

Librans will be searching for new ways to improve their cash flow by the end of 2012, though financial improvement is probable, it relies on changing your career or business strategy, or perhaps, even your chosen field of work. An encouraging review, report or remark, is likely to uplift your spirits, helping you to realize you have what it takes to be successful, despite previous setbacks. Your self-worth will receive a boost, if not at work, through personal connections, ready to support and encourage as your life changes noticeably in 2012. A sudden alteration in your life, a new set of circumstances will transform not only your life, but how you perceive yourself and your strengths. Be prepared to modify how you think about yourself, because exciting changes will leave you feeling you didn’t know you had the talents and fortitude that these shifts will bring out in you.
During 2012, you will find new ways to negotiate the financial maze, and create new monetary approaches, or find other ways of making money.


This year is about standing strong, becoming more comfortable with who you are, and nurturing your individuality and independence, whatever your relationship status.
Lucky Librans are ruled by Venus and have a tendency to be very attractive and possess a magnetic appeal that makes it relatively simple for them to attract an interested party. Though Librans often have the tendency to spend their time searching for that “perfect” partner, which can be a barrier to finding the love they truly need, they ultimately let their heart guide them to a deep connection with a “not-so-perfect”, but perfectly-suited, partner. Librans make wonderful partners, for they are typically loving, romantic, appreciative and fun.

Although Librans enjoy their alone time, most are keen to search for that “one” person with whom they can establish a stable, lifelong relationship, or marriage. They long for connectedness and a sense of harmonious unity. Most are not fearful of marriage, even enjoying the idea of “making things legal”, except when they have experienced a prior, bad relationship. Should a relationship does not work out, Librans try to do the fair thing, sharing belongings equally, and striving to maintain their friendship with their former partner. However, once Librans have made a lifelong commitment, they make dedicated partners. Librans also make excellent match-makers, knowing whose qualities would suit the traits and personality of another.

During 2012, partnered Librans will feel the need to improve their love relationships, even if the bond is still strong. Tapping into the Librans innate sense of harmony and calmness will help to soothe over misunderstandings or disagreements may be experiencing at the end of 2012, and prevent complex situations growing into a bigger issue.


In November, try not to say something in the spur of the moment, when you are feeling annoyed at someone’s insensitive remarks or behaviour, and you will avert a problem. If you use your Libran capacity to understand both perspectives, you will come up with an approach that soothes the situation, rather than exacerbates it. The last part of 2012 will be a prime time for single Librans to meet that someone special, so make sure you get out and about. You will probably find that it is your winning smile, twinkle in your eyes, and your great sense of humour that draws someone lovely to you, but it is your keen mind and winning personality that keeps them enraptured.

Current issues in the family sector are likely to be resolved in 2012 or by early 2013.

2012 will be a good year for most Librans in regards to health, though coughs and flu may visit more than once if you allow yourself to get run down.

Career or business will go through at least one major change during the second half of 2012. Librans are hard-working and dedicated, and though this change may not be exactly what they had planned, by keeping focussed, Librans will be rewarded in the work sector in 2013. 2012 is the year to be careful with money and finances, as there may be alterations in circumstances that call on reserve funds, but luckily, 2013 is likely to be much kinder on the Librans bank balance, and job or business opportunities on the horizon in 2013 will help to boost funds.


Libra Forecasts for 2013


Overview

With career and business opportunities presenting themselves in the first half of 2013, it looks like a good year for most Librans. Making firm decisions seem to be easier this year. You have set yourself clear objectives and heading in the direction of your biggest aspirations. Last year had a few challenges that gave you the insight to make the most of possibilities offered by 2013. Your networking skills will pay off this year, with new associates providing you with the knowledge or skills to put you in a better career or business position. Librans will find themselves communicating their deepest thoughts and insights with greater ease, either verbally or through written word; excellent for those who rely on their communication skills to make a living.

You will be a whirlwind of creative energy this year. Librans with creative talents will excel, while those who believed that they possessed no such talent will begin to surprise themselves. Your mind will be full of fantastic new ideas, which you will turn into pursuits or passions, or possibly a new work direction. Projects you found difficult to get off the ground before, will finally start to materialize this year through your continued efforts.

The first four months of 2013 are filled with opportunities for social events, business ideas, and fascinating projects, so make sure you make the most of it. New ways of thinking and understanding your life, and the world around you, revel that your awareness is growing, along with your sense of personal empowerment. In 2013, Librans will be keen to learn a new language or delve into their musical side, with some turning these interests into an income.


Between April and May, Librans will feel the need to put their feet up, taking either a holiday, or just a few days off to chill at home with loved ones.
2013 holds great potential for Librans. A year of vibrancy and upliftment, Librans will rise above the problems of the year before; undefeated, strengthened and wiser from the experience. People born under the sign of Libra will finally see a clearer path to their dreams, and feel ready to clear away the obstacles, step by step. Promotions or excellent job changes are likely in 2013, the result of self-improvement, increasing confidence, and a willingness to explore your options. Many Librans will strike up special new friendships as a result of changing jobs, or starting a course of study.

Sun and Venus are exerting their positive influences on you this year, bringing you a heightened positivity that will make you ready to strive for your most important goals, knowing you are capable of making them a reality. You will be radiating a powerful energy that will be magnetic and inspiring.

When new projects arrive, you will not be affected by the usual Libran tendency for indecisiveness; instead, you will be feeling resolute and ready to make the decisions necessary to make the most of your opportunities and move life forward. If others at work or in business show their jealous side, it is simply because they can see you are on the path of success, and may be feeling like they are living in your shadow.

Love and Relationship




Some minor disagreements with a partner or colleague in the early part of the year, could be due to something you said without thinking. If you think first, you might be able to avoid some unnecessary tension. You and your partner are probably in need of some time to just “be” together, quiet and accepting; no words needed, just loving proximity and a joyful, appreciative approach. By mid-year, Librans in couples are feeling the love again, and previous misunderstandings seem less important. Librans in severely, dysfunctional relationships will find the strength by mid-year, to sort out their lives, let go and move on.

Seeking a balance between your personal life and professional life seems to be made easier this year, one clearly winning over the other, or simply your time management skills have improved to such a degree that you can fit both in. Life brings new hope in 2013, with old problems being finally resolved, and new issues dealt with a minimum of fuss or deliberation. Librans who are currently single, will be pleased by an offer by an attractive new person who enters their life by May, and even it is not a long term romance, it could add some zest to your life, if a little excitement is what you have been hoping for. Plenty of joy and fun is likely for Librans in their love life this year.

Those Librans feeling that their love life is monotonous or non-existent, will explore new ways to invigorate this aspect of their lives with heartening results; relationships will be revived, and single Librans will meet a selection of prospective mates, one of which could do very nicely indeed.

Work and Career




Your efforts in the career or business sector is finally paying off in 2013. Positive results are likely and you deserve it. Improvements in social status, or increased income, is on the horizon, and people in positions of authority are noticing you have what it takes to go far. Work or business-related studies, or training, will further increase your chance for success this year. Restructuring around the work place means new roles and opportunities for moving upwards are on the agenda, just put your best foot forward. Workloads may increase due to people leaving your place of employment so daily relaxation practices will be necessary to help Librans deal with the work schedule. Many Librans who had not previously tried meditation and yoga, will feel inspired to learn these skills in 2013 to de-stress or recharge their batteries; while other Librans will be using fitness regimens to cope with their busy work life. Avoid letting a work colleague or employee with a negative attitude, rob you of your state of calm.

Profitable business deals between March and May will have Libran business owners smiling, but prior to finalization, it may be best to keep the details quiet so no outside party profits instead. Fine print on leases or contracts should be checked, particularly in January and November to avoid small but annoying obligations. In December, Libran business owners will be feeling happy about a new business opportunity that crosses their path, or an inspired idea, which will be just what is needed to improve their business.

The second half of 2013 will see many Librans realize their dreams of a property purchase, and time to enjoy it.

The last quarter of 2013 appears to be the most profitable time for Librans, with more than one chance for salary increases or profits from projects, luck, or dividends.

Health

Though Librans typically eat well and work to stay fit, their sensitive natures can lead to digestive problems. 2013 stresses the importance of caring for the Librans nervous system by ensuring enough relaxation and sleep.

Summary


Librans will be dazzling this year, buzzing with energy and a desire to “make things happen”. Your positivity will be infectious, with friends, family and associates, drawn into your enthusiasm, wishing to make 2013 a special year of achievement. This new burst of vitality will also flow into helping others, ready to change the world for the better. This need to be active will see Librans keen to pursue all sorts of activities, sports, hobbies, and learning, bringing added joy and contentment into your life. Librans will be feeling invigorated and ready to tackle life head on; striving for their dreams and making them come true. With Sun and Venus working their magic on the sign of Libra, you will be a virtual powerhouse this year, radiating so much energy, people will be drawn to you and your plans will finally take shape. More than one prospect for improvement will present itself. Make the most of 2013. This could be your year, Librans!

"Life After Life" documentary on Near-Death Experiences

In Life After Life Raymond Moody investigates case studies of people who experienced “clinical death” and were subsequently revived.

This classic exploration of life after death started a revolution in popular attitudes about the afterlife and established Dr. Moody as the world’s leading authority in the field of near-death experiences.

The extraordinary stories presented here provide evidence that there is life after physical death, as Moody recounts the testimonies of those who have been to the “other side” and back — all bearing striking similarities of an overwelming positive nature.

Virgo Profile
Virgos are the sixth sign of the zodiac. They have an extremely analytical mind, ready to minimize and organize, categorize and stick labels on everything to make sure everything is returned to its' correct place. Often feel motivated to work for a noble cause, which helps them forget their concerns about possible issues in their own lives. Their refined analytical skills make Virgos invaluable in difficult situations that require problem-solving and a sequential approach.

They are commonly known as the "perfectionist" of the zodiac, which means they will do everything in their power to do their best, and often push themselves beyond what is humanly possible, often causing themselves, and sometimes others, stress from their self-imposed idealistic standards. Their mind can be their greatest asset when put to work on vital projects, but can cause them anguish if they focus on minor issues and on what is lacking. One of the major lessons for the Virgo is to learn balance between their emotions and their strong intellect and powers of reasoning. If Virgos allow themselves to worry, they often develop tummy upsets and fragile nerves, so incorporating some daily playfulness and relaxation is vital for a Virgo, even more so than other star signs. Due to their highly practical nature, their creative expression is often channelled either in to writing or creating, or decorating, objects that are not only beautiful but useful. Virgo's also possess highly developed physical senses, which often makes them expert cooks and skilled lovers.




Virgos usually bring their work home or think about work even when they are supposed to be relaxing. Those Virgos who work from home may find it hard to sit still because there is "always something that needs to get done". Virgos are typically logical, hardworking, persistent and disciplined. Although, Virgo's are the sign of purity and "the Virgin", deep romantic involvements is one aspect of their lives that Virgos are anything but restrained, tending towards passion and exuberance. However, Virgos need to resist the temptation to direct and control their relationships at times. Usually ultraclean, the Virgos normally fastidious nature may be toned down if other influences in their astrological chart predominate.

Virgos are the sign star most likely to choose a partner of the same star sign. If they do not choose another Virgo as their partner, they are often found in the company of one of the other earth signs - Taurus or Capricorn; however there are always exceptions to this rule.




Virgos typically have exceptionally strong power of concentration and focus. When they have set their goals, Virgos will move any mountain in the way to achieve it. They are not angry by nature, but are not people to trifle with, because if you push them too far, too often, you are going to be dealing with a formidable opponent. Since Virgos are extremely cautious, they tend to take a while to get started on their greatest goals, but they are so well-planned that once they begin, Virgos are ready for just about anything.

Virgos are usually supremely capable, and able to handle most situations on their own if they have to, though normally long to be part of a couple. Though Virgos are typically extremely intelligent, they often do not recognize their own abilities and need those who know and love the Virgo, to point out to them, their fabulous qualities.

Straightforward and honest, Virgos are often popular with those who want the truth without the "sugar-coating".




Virgo is an Earth sign sharing its ruling planet of Mercury with the air sign - Gemini. Mercury is the planet of communication, revealing that Virgos (as well as Gemini's) possess a talent for expressing their thoughts, ideas, and feelings exceptionally well, through the written and spoken word.

2012 Forecast

In 2012, you will be feeling the need to cultivate your self-worth, defining your boundaries, and setting new goals for the coming year. Virgos will be improving their earning capacity and planning innovative ways to increase their funds. It is an opportune time for travelling or saving funds for travel for 2013. Aspirations related to education, legal or media-related are also likely to have beneficial outcomes. Several new people entering your life are likely to stay and figure strongly for years to follow. It is time to expand your life and try new ways of living.




You may find that a few old spiritual lessons will return to teach you what you may have avoided prior. There may be a sense of duty or expectation related to these lessons, but once understood and accepted, will clear the way for a positive, new direction. Your high degree of ethics and integrity is likely to attract a new job that is in keeping with your hardworking nature and principles. A person in authority may see your abilities and encourage you to try out for a different role, providing additional opportunities to improve your skills and your financial situation. Your work hours could possibly increase as a result, but make sure that your loved ones and family don't miss out spending quality time with you.

You may be feeling more independent and self-sufficient than you have for a long while. This strengthening of your self-worth will stay with you, and you will finally realize that you are more capable and resilient than you ever believed yourself to be. Though you normally have excellent money management skills, you will be further honing your abilities to make the most of your finances which can provide the expertise to avoid possible financial pitfalls in future.




You will be taking an unusual approach for a Virgo, but you will find yourself "thinking outside the box", enjoying moments of insights and revelations on which to base some crucial direction changes. These moments of brilliance will also help you to enjoy some delightful surprises. Virgos will experience a cycle in which they will want to make a significant contribution, feeling motivated to get involved in activities or duties that are community based, or jobs and businesses related to bringing or happiness, with fortunate results.

An urge to tap into your unique gifts will motivate you to learn new things, or be willing to look for opportunities in fields you may not have considered in earlier years. Your desire to express your individuality and your opinions may be stronger during 2012 too.

Virgo professionals and business owners will be feeling highly motivated to increase their career-related knowledge, and trying out new approaches to their established fields.




2012 will see many Virgos intuitive side becoming stronger, and spiritual links between loved ones will provide flashes of insight that will sometimes surprise with their clarity and accuracy. Issues that may have been lingering will see closure in 2012, in preparation for a simpler year ahead.

Your family and personal life will go through transitions in 2012. A fresh approach to relationships will see you setting new boundaries with those who have let you down, and establishing stronger connections with those who have supported you through challenges in the past, resulting in a growing sense of personal empowerment and contentment. Romance will bring unexpected joys. You may be surprised by the affectionate outpourings of someone significant in your life. For those attempting to heal previous misunderstandings, or relationship problems, reconciliation is likely. Many single Virgos are on track to establishing a permanent relationship with someone who shares their dreams and values.





Forecast for 2013

Overview 2013
2013 is a year in which Virgos will reach towards their dreams, and make extraordinary headway. This is also a year in which Virgos will find their minds full of innovative ideas, or developing new approaches to old problems and coming up with excellent results. The key word for 2013 is change, and Virgos will be ready for whatever life throws at them, and luckily, most of these changes are extremely positive. Virgos will consolidate their prior knowledge and skills, and push towards fresh goals that will allow them to shine.

2013 is the year of extraordinary achievements for Virgos in all fields of endeavour. Your expertise and knowledge will lead to recognition and appreciation by work associates and those in charge. You will feel inspired to give everything your all to realize your dreams and aspirations. If you want to get ahead in your professional life, this is the year to make things happen. Some Virgos will change jobs to reinvigorate their career, while others will push for that promotion and succeed. Some Virgos will have the opportunity to travel for work, or offers to represent a company or organization in a pivotal meeting or conference will be offered.




There will be several challenges during 2013 which will test the fortitude of the Virgo but nothing that they won't be able to handle. Between March and May, a change of circumstances will shift your life into a new phase, and allow you to see the best direction in which to head. Spontaneity is not usually a Virgo trait, but 2013 will see you expressing this characteristic on more than one occasion, and with fabulous results. Keeping life under control, will not seem as crucial, but channeling your energies to improve your life in the direction of your dreams will, and most likely to provide favourable outcomes.

You are not a stranger to hard work, in fact, Virgos thrive on putting one hundred percent into whatever they do, and this is the year it will seem to pay off. You just need to maintain your focus and be clear on what goals truly are. Be patient because your desired results will not arrive quickly, but they are certainly on the path you will choose. Praise, bonuses, even awards, are likely in 2013. You will handle your work goals and projects so effectively that you will be considered for even more responsible roles. You will be given a chance to show off your organizational and management skills, with opportunity likely to knock more than once this year.

Between June to September, you may be contemplating the next step in your love life. For those who are happy in love, plans for future holidays or formalization of bonds will be high on the agenda.
