Astrologer Pam Younghans writes this weekly astrological journal based on planetary influences, and offers perspectives and insights to assist you in making the best use of current energies.

Some of the areas within Libra's domain are the law and litigation, as ideally these forms are meant to ensure fairness and order.

WITH WARRIOR MARS conjunct this week's New Moon, the more assertive side of Libra is engaged, the part that fights for a just cause and for equal rights under the law. This means we are likely to see...
