Libra 

For December 2012

Are you feeling confident, or afraid that the ground is going to drop out beneath you? Is it time to embrace the people in your life, or are you making more excuses to keep them at arm's length? What you're going through is certainly deep, and it's stirring up some old questions, some fear, and many of your old reasons to keep people at a distance. That said, I don't think there is a time when we're actually "ready" to be close to others. Rather, I would say there may be a time when we understand that everyone is a work in progress. Part of that progress is the willingness to accept your insecurities, not as a permanent part of who you are but rather something you experience. To accept your insecurities implies revealing them in intimate situations, which in turn implies giving people power over you. Here's the problem with this point of view: If you see your life as a power dynamic, you're living in the world of politics rather than human emotions. Part of your Libra karma is to understand what one professor at my university called "the politics of love," which includes the politics of your early-childhood environment. That may have been a rigid world, based more on expectations than on compassion. You have the awareness and determination to see the implications of the past on your life today, and to work them out. I would ask: What's that inside your velvet glove? Is it an iron fist, or a warm, loving hand?
