This Month (May 2015)

Success amidst struggle, strife and slow growth shall be the theme of the month for your Sign. And, there are three things you will need to remember–to come out unscathed of these planetary vibes, says Ganesha. One, watch your temperament, as you are likely to act in a very unreliable and capricious manner, which may affront your colleagues and even superiors at work and loved ones at home. Ganesha advises you to be very careful during this phase not to hurt anyone by thought, word or deed. Two, do not be bogged down by looming deadlines and tightening pressure, as this is something that is largely out of your hand. Just give your best shot, and if you happen to miss a deadline by a narrow margin, be ready with a genuine explanation. Third and most important—do not lose hope. There may be frustrations at work, which may force you to look for a new avenue, but the new opportunities may not be very forthcoming. Blame it on the retrograde Saturn. And, lie a little low till this phase passes. You may also get Career Ask A Question – Detailed Advice basis your Birth Chart, to learn about your future on the career front. Businessmen and freelancers too will need to follow the same plan, adds Ganesha.

Libra, the 7th Sign of the Zodiac, is represented by the symbol of the Balancing Scales. Naturally, the buzzword here is ‘Balance’. Unsurprisingly, most Libra individuals are balancers – of varying degrees. Also, since a pair of Scales always has two aspects, two sides – Libra-born too has two sides to his/ her personality and thinking. Yet, unlike Gemini, the most Libra individuals don’t let this aspect rule their personalities. They are, rather, what you would call, as ‘the weighing options and then deciding (and picking the peaceful option) kinds’. They value fairness and justice above most things, and are natural soothers and harmonizers. On their own, most Libras will steer clear of conflict or arguments, and would also not prefer to create or cause conflicts and disagreements. Owing to this trait, they make for good team players. Friendly, amiable and attractive, Libra individuals are also quite popular among their friends, more so because they tend to play able, trustworthy and balanced team strategists for their groups. However, many a Libra are found to be too manipulative or stubborn – for their own good. They can be critical of others’ ways, fixed in their own or may be too manipulative; and, they can be quite difficult to manage, once they get into any of these modes. Good thing is that most Libra-born are able to effectively reign in this side of their personality, rather using the gift of tact and diplomacy to get positive results. In relationships, the Scales or Libra are very loving and careful. They make for beautiful, elegant partners, always well turned out, and are a treat to be taken along on dates, parties and social dos. Most Libra-born are graceful, polite and admire beauty in all its forms. They love a good life!
