Key themes: deep rest, quality time with yourself away from screens, activities that renew and nourish, recommitting to your truth and your path, honoring your boundaries, knowing who to share your energy with

Those unconscious habits that end up hindering your daily schedules may feel out of control lately. But this is a wonderful time to understand where they’re coming from, and the deeper needs that are longing to be met. As Mercury has been retrograding through the deepest area of your chart since August 23rd, give yourself the chance to dial down the hustle-bustle of the outside world. Find spaces within your days to have some quality alone time to tune into your inner world. Your intuition is strong, and making this space for yourself can help you find hidden treasures about your path ahead or whispers from your inner nature that have been drowned out by the noise of daily life.

Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through your relationships with your friends and the communities you’re a part of. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. What part of the past regarding your sense of belonging, the sense of being a part of something bigger, the causes that move you, and the people you feel aligned to, have you been reconnecting with? What parts of yourself do you wish to keep reclaiming?

The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of collaborations, intimacy, and shared energy, inviting you to be more observant about where you’re putting your trust. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about reevaluating your give and take, especially within the relationships where there’s a real investment of energy (e.g. money, resources, emotions, time) on one or both parts.

On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion bringing crucial information to light. It can feel like a gentle uncovering of thoughts and emotions that might have been tucked away for far too long. This is a chance to understand and release old patterns, so allow for quiet introspection if you can find the space and the time for it.

We have the New Moon in Virgo on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, doubling down on all of this Virgo energy that for you has to do with dream time, resting, and releasing. This is a call to claim retreat as a radical act. You are a social sign dear Libra, so I’m not asking you to fully distance from others. Deep sharing is definitely nourishing for you. But follow your inner wisdom and know when to disconnect if energetic exchanges are getting to be too much, especially if there’s drama involved and it’s taking a toll on you.

On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. The need to reinforce your boundaries, and the things that have been causing you to feel drained and exhausted mentally, emotionally and physically will begin to loosen up little by little, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.

We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, shining a light on your personal journey of self-discovery, so get ready to begin to come back to life! You’ve been in the dark lately, letting go of a lot. Maybe at times you’ve been feeling lost, but this has all been helping you to make space for the renewal that wants to take place. Things haven’t been easy during the past couple of months with your ruling planet going retrograde and the south node of the Moon setting up camp in your sign for the next 18 months. Have patience with yourself and your process, don’t push yourself too hard. This is a time to insist on your commitment to yourself. Take your time but refuse to play it small when it comes to what you know is yours to take on. This is definitely a time of growing pains. You got this.

The ways in which you exist within your commitments are in a moment of transformation with the north node in Aries in your area of partnerships, and the Full Moon in Aries happening on the 29th, at 5:57 am EST, will highlight this. The more you face your fears of being misunderstood and just let yourself come as you are, the more honesty you can bring to your bonds and the conversations that need to happen. I know it’s scary, but it’s time to embrace the conflicts that come up time and again within your intimate one-on-one relationships. Remember that this can be done with care.
