This prompt conjures up fond memories of days spent as young teenagers, 'rocking' for hours with a childhood friend on her verandah. 'Rocking' consisted of going over to her house (especially during holidays), sitting for hours in rocking chairs, drinking cold Maltas and talking about how great it is to be Libran ... or "Libs". This completely baffled her mother and sister who, not being Libs, could not comprehend. Fellow Libs will readily agree. We are always quick to confirm that we are the best zodiacal sign. This is not being said with vanity, as Libs are humble creatures. Our zodiacal superiority is a known fact.
It became somewhat of a joke ... this superiority of being 'a Lib'. One day, in jest, I started up a 'newsletter' called TLC: The Libran Club. Our motto was: Librans Unite! It was a quaint blend of sarcasm, astrological tongue in cheek and serious fact. I sent it out as a joke to my Libran friends ... and soon there were more Librans on the growing mailing list, from all corners of the world. They all looked forward to these TLC newsletters and, despite finding them amusing, did not lightly dismiss the contents. I had a ball writing and sending out the TLC Newsletter. Haven't done any in a while, but I'll post one here. This was a June one (seeing that we are in June now).
The Libran Club Newsletter
June 2006 Issue:
This newsletter will be short, sweet and to the point.
The month of June is that time when we begin to feel the insistent rustle of October, beckoning to us in the distance with the promise of opulence. Come July, we will see a sharp rise in our popularity as others are drawn to our magnetic emanations. Come August, the world will begin to put on shades in preparation for the brilliant rays that will be emitted from our inner glow (which, as we know, is so strong that it shows outwardly to almost blinding proportions). Come September and the world will not know the difference between day and night (so bright we will be). Come October and everyone who is not fortunate enough to have been born at the pinnacle will wish that they could turn back time, returning to the point of conception … and somehow convince their parents to choreograph their copulation so that all offspring (themselves included) will be born in late September – late October (the desired Libran time frame). Alas, ‘tis not possible … which is why one of our lessons in this lifetime is to learn to share our grandeur with others … to grace them with our presence … so that they may vicariously live off of our zodiacal bounty.
There is something special about the June Moon 2006, whatever stage she is in. Be it new, half or full, waxing or waning, she is making it her duty to look over Librans with a special eye this month. Why this month? The month of June is named after Juno, the goddess of marriage, also known as the queen of heaven and classed with Mary of the Christian tradition. Be it known that she has also been described as ‘the divine watcher over the female sex’. (N.B. This does not exclude our male TLC member in the UK who is blessed with female energies). As we all may know, the Moon is female energy (as opposed to the Sun which is male energy). Add two and two together and you will see that this is a very female month for us Librans. We are in good hands.
The female, healing powers of the June Moon act upon us like a divine key, opening our hearts, minds and souls in ways that we could not even have imagined if we wanted to. This is the month to simply relax and be silently aware of our inner workings. Whilst this may sound far fetched or unattainable to some, it is quite the opposite. We do not have to strive to attain this inner connection with ourselves, for this is the gift that June’s Moon brings to us. She works herself into our system with ease when we are asleep, infusing us with special energies to inspire ‘the opening’ process.
“What is the benefit of this?” you may be asking. The answer is simple. Have you been ‘stuck’ in any way? Have you felt at any point as though something wants to ‘come out’ of you but just is not moving? (… and this is not referring to constipation. This is about ideas, new thoughts and feelings, revelations, things to be said and done, etc.) June’s Moon will open the way that once was blocked, allowing the river of energies to flow through us Librans, enabling action, truth and successful communication.
Let us surrender and enjoy our unfolding, my friends. Do not resist the inevitable.
(No other signs of the zodiac were harmed during the writing of this newsletter).
