Saturn enters Libra on July 22

The break-up of the Gores reminds us of a new focus coming for relationships when Saturn enters the sign of Libra next month for the next couple of years. This means that our relationship patterns and structures will be in high focus during this period. Saturn's job is to let us know what is or is not working in our lives so we can live in a more authentic way. Many folks have been forming relationships or staying together for more superficial or practical reasons that have nothing to do with their life purpose. This trend will be under scrutiny in the coming years. Saturn in Libra will be requiring us to ask whether our partnership truly supports our life purpose and specifically how it does or does not do that. It will ask us to be honest with ourselves and be ready to take necessary actions even though others may disapprove or it may not be the practical thing to do.

Individuals are undergoing an accelerated rate of growth in recent years, and the intensity is likely to increase in the next couple of years. Many of us are not the same individuals we were 40, 30 or even 20 years ago, as our needs have changed dramatically. Given this amount of inner changes, would we even choose the same partner again? I believe that the success of a relationships does not depend on the length of time it lasts. Many couples come together to support each other in making certain inner changes or to do certain projects together. When these tasks are completed, the momentum to keep the relationship going may not be there. As with the Gores, partners can develop different life goals that do not support their relationship. This also happened to Richard Bach and Leslie Parrish Bach, and also Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. You can still love this person even though the structure of the relationship changes to more of a friendship. These individuals need to be supported in moving on with their lives. We will be re-examining how we can have more authentic relationships that truly support our growth in the coming two years.

Al and Tipper Gore Decide to Separate

I took a look at their charts when I heard this news. This couple has been married for 40 years, so not an easy decision. Al's moon is getting a direct hit from the transiting cardinal cross, with Pluto on his moon, along with the June 26 lunar eclipse. When Uranus went into the world degree of Aries, it directly squared his moon and they decided to make a public announcement. The moon rules our feelings and close family ties, which undergo drastic changes when impacted by these transits. There was also a news report about another house being purchased -- another lunar reference.

This separation was probably in the works for awhile, as Pluto had opposed Tipper's Uranus back in November 2008. There might have been incidents back then that led to this decision. Pluto is also favorably aspecting her Mercury in Virgo, which has likely led her in a new and more fruitful direction. Perhaps she will write a book.

Watch for more of these sudden unexpected decisions with well-known figures over the next few months.
