LibraSeptember 22 - October 22
Libra, on Friday, Mercury retrograde will re-enter Virgo in your area of the unconscious. Things may really slow down for you. You may feel restless. A lot is going on behind the scenes, unconsciously. Be patient with yourself. Coddle your feelings. Don’t spend too much time in front of a screen, and rest as much as you can. Pay close attention to your dream world. The New Moon in Libra is happening on Sunday at 5:54pm EST, and it’s here to cleanse and refresh your emotional body. Treat yourself to something pleasurable. Be real picky right now about who and what you share your energy with. It’s completely ok to take care of your space, this doesn’t make you selfish. You’re the only one who knows what you need and how to respect your personal space. Let go of what is not yours to deal or carry with.
New! KTZ Compatibility
Key themes: retreat, dreams, healing, intuition, rebirth, beauty, sweetness.
The month of September opens up with Venus —the planet of love, intimacy and beauty— entering the service-driven sign of Virgo until the 29th. As Venus transits your area of the unconscious, you will get a chance to connect deeper into your oniric realms. Cultivate nighttime rituals that can help transport you into a deeper and more relaxing sleep. Venus wants you to gift yourself some alone time. It wants you to retreat in order to recommit to your internal healing.
On the 9th, Mercury —the Messenger— will station to go retrograde in your sign, leading you to see yourself under a whole new light. If you’re misperceiving yourself to the point that your confidence levels begin to dwindle, remember to seek out the ones that know how to love and uplift you. Try not to be too hard on yourself and steer clear from those that make you feel like you’re lacking.
The Full Moon in the dreamy sign of Pisces will happen on the 10th, at 5:59am EST, reminding you that the small choices that you make in your day-to-day life are what end up creating the path that leads to your future. Tap into what’s working for you and what isn’t, on an intuitive level, don’t overanalyze it or try to find the logic. Trust your gut on it, and experiment with shifting things around.
On the 22nd, the Sun’s exit from Virgo will give way to your Season, Libra, shining a bright light on your needs. This is a time of rebirth and self-recognition for you. The more you come into your new self the more probability there is for tensions to arise within your relationships. Avoiding them will only leave you disempowered. I know it’s hard, but you come into your strength and strengthen your bonds when you’re there to meet the things that need to be met within your partnerships.
Mercury, still retrograde, will move back into Virgo on the 23rd, leading you to review any relevant dreams or intuitive hunches that came up during August 20th to 25th. Give yourself the time to mull things over without jumping to conclusions just yet. You’ll be able to get more clarity on the matter during the first couple of weeks of October.
Your New Moon is happening on the 25th, at 5:54pm EST, bringing with it an opportunity to redefine yourself. Start by recognizing the distance between your outer self and how you feel within. Carve out the roads for alignment between your inner and outer layers. Be patient with the process. Hold yourself lovingly through the moments of disconnection.
Finally, on the 29th, Venus enters its home in your sign, uplifting the energy of the New Moon. You’ll begin to feel extra comfortable in your skin. Enjoy this, you deserve it after so much shedding and letting go. Indulge in sweetness. Dress yourself up and make your spaces more beautiful. Trust your desires, and feel no shame in giving into life’s delights.

Ruling Planet: Venus, the Planet of Love and Relationships
Where You’ll Find Them: Daydreaming about their lover, decorating their home, hosting a party
What They Avoid: Getting too serious too soon, explaining their emotions, making a decision
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac — an Air sign characterized by their intellect, desire for balance, and love of beauty and harmony. Libra is able to adapt to any situation they’re thrown into, and they get along with practically anyone they meet. A charming people-person, Libra is a wonderful communicator, artist, host, speaker and writers Being ruled by Venus makes Libra charismatic and aware of how the beauty that exists within and around them. Some people call Libra vain or superficial, but those are often the same people who wish they had Libra’s timeless aura and aesthetic.
Professionally, Libra makes a great lawyer due to their propensity for justice-related causes. Libras are also natural artists, singers, dancers, painters, actors and poets because of their desire to express their fluid emotions to a wider audience. Libras have a need for balance and fairness in their lives, so they may gravitate towards a career where they have a fair shot of advancing and achieving their goals. But sometimes Libra plays it too safe, preferring to take the tried and true route rather than risk it all. Libra isn’t that comfortable with extremes, but they’d benefit from daring to tip the scales every now and then. Libra is known for using their intellect and logic over their sensitivity and intuition, but a deeper emotional analysis can benefit them in the long-run.
As a friend, Libra is a social butterfly. Many people call Libra their best friend, but Libra may not really call that many other people their best friend, because they have so many friends. Even the shyest Libras have an approachable, warm, loving demeanor about them that helps them stand out from the crowd. Libra’s smile and welcoming energy can open many doors for them. People feel relaxed around Libra, and Libra is able to bring harmony to every environment they’re in. The main thing Libras must work on as friends is not skimming the surface of their relationships. They should dare to dig deeper and get to know their friends on a profound level. Sometimes Libra flutters from friend to friend so easily that others question their level of investment in the friendship.
Romantically, while Libra may initially come off as an open book, once you really observe them you realize how elusive Libra really is. Like all Air signs, Libra may flutter from experience to experience, but since Libra is the most relationship-oriented sign of the zodiac they’re ultimately seeking to attract a soulmate — someone who challenges them intellectually, emotionally and physically. Yes, Libra can be flirtatious and indecisive in love. But once a Libra falls in love, they focus on being present within the experience, and giving all that they can. They become attuned to their partner’s needs and more sensitive as a lover, and this crystallizes the bond.
