You’re waiting for that magical day when someone makes the connection and recognizes who you really are. Maybe they’ll first catch the sparkle in your eye. Or perhaps they’ll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit. Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself, and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you, and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready, ripened self from the branch of magnificence. Well, I’m here to tell you, your wait is over. That someone, is you.

Mike Dooley


Mars in Libra craves harmony and true partnership- the equanimity that occurs when everything in our lives is in balance.   Under Mars in Libra we sometimes tend to sacrifice who we are and what we ourselves need in order to find that peaceful integration that will soothe our jangled nerves.  However, Mars is the ruler of Libra’s opposite polarity: Aries.  Mars is said to be in its detriment in Libra, where it is less easily able to find its full expression as the planet of aggression and self-direction.

I like this Mike Dooley quote for Mars in Libra – as we strive for that equanimity we can remember that we ourselves are the key to that polarity and true partnership.
