“I recall your smile, and for me it is limpid water
witnessed by chance among the stones of a riverbed.
slight mirror in which you see an ivy and its inflorescence,
and over all the embrace of a serene white sky.
This is my recollection; I cannot say, O distant one,
if an ingenuous spirit is freely expressed in your face,
truly you are a wanderer whom the world’s ills exhaust,
and who carry your suffering with you like a talisman.
But this I may say; that your thoughtful portrait
drowns anxious inspiration in a wave of calm;
and your aspect insinuates itself in grey memory
pure as the crown of a youthful palm-tree…”
— Eugenio Montale

If Your Birthday is Oct. 12
(The Day of the Grand Gesture) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Take control of your career, which means overcoming your tendency to react emotionally to others. Learn to steer your own ship, and to set your own course. Others may have a voice and a role, though it’s time for you to recognize that you are the one with the ideas, and you’re the one holding the bag. If you can do this, you will be brilliantly successful.
Written in the Planets
Last quarter Moons are usually considered a time of wrapping up. This is when the last burst of action takes place before the last loose ends are tied, in preparation for the new cycle to begin. Accompanying aspects involving Mars suggest that there is an unusually generous opportunity, in particular, to undo or redo something that didn’t pan out as expected. That might include retracting a rash word or deed that you perhaps regret. Just be sure to think things over carefully before you attempt a solution.

As always, your reading is spot on and validates what I am experiencing in life at this time. The sheer acknowledgment that as a Libra I need balance, beauty and aesthetics in my life to make me tick on, balanced, in my day-to-day endeavors and consequently some very huge endeavors for the year was just what I needed to keep going.
