Like a river flows surely to the sea

Darling so it goes,

Some things were meant to be.”

Elvis really tapped into the baby boomers’ psyche when he sang these words. Our Neptune in Libra gives us a longing for a love that was meant to be.

Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gary Cooper, Tyrone Power, Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for romantic leading men. Vivian Leigh, Katherine Hepburn, Susan Hayward, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilynn Monroe set the standard for beauty and seduction.

Romance, longing and idealism are the words that come to mind for the Neptune in Libra generation when it comes to partnership. Neptune created the illusion that glamour, soul mates and undying love are central to great partnerships. Baby boomers believed that ‘all you need is love’ for the world to become a better place and for marriages to last. Don’t blame them for it. Neptune made them do it.

Searching for our soul mates, we married and divorced at staggering rates, looking for the perfect partner, the One who would share souls with us. That is the cross the Neptune in Libra generation (1942-1957) bears – that there is one special person out there meant only for us. When we didn’t find him or her, we suffered (a Neptunian trait). And through the suffering and the searching, we discovered that to love, you first have to love yourself.

Like Isis looking for Osiris, we searched for the scattered parts of our beloved, finding love in all the wrong places. When we saw inequality in our partnerships, we either suffered through the frustration or we chose freedom and the pain of separation. Out of those choices came consciousness and self-awareness. Through our disillusionment, we came to discover how to love ourselves.

Now with Saturn back in Libra, this generation has the opportunity to get down to the hard work of giving some of that love back to another person. When Saturn hits your Neptune, you might finally meet that soul mate that’s been eluding you all these years. Love just might come to you now that you’re older and more mature. Because the truth is, that kind of love takes work! Perhaps this generation is finally old enough to do the work.

If you’ve done your inner work, you will attract the right people into your life. This is especially true for those of you born from 1951 to 1953, when Saturn joined Neptune in Libra. You are the ones who have probably experienced more of the pain and pleasures of relationship than the rest of us. That’s been your great initiation this lifetime, since Saturn tests us to confront reality. If you can keep hold of your own authority (Saturn) in your relationships, you just might make it this time.

Libra also rules the arts, and most of our greatest musicians and artists are part of the Neptune in Libra generation. From John Lennon to Sting, these musicians have explored the realms of relationship and social justice. In these next few years as Saturn transits through Libra, perhaps we’ll see a resurgence of music and art that really speaks to our times and our issues. Whether these artists are well known to us or they are us, this is the time for the Neptune in Libra generation to share their vision of the world and of partnerships. Some things are just meant to be.

So just remember to imagine! That’s the best gift that Neptune bestows on us.
