LibraSeptember 22 - October 22
Love is in the air Libra. We’re about to experience the meeting of Mars (planet of action) and Jupiter (planet of expansion), in your opposite sign of Aries. The fiery energy of this conjunction will begin to arise in the days before and continue to reverberate for days after – initiating us into a space of new paths and empowerment. Libra, if love, friendship, partnership or romance have been your mind – you may notice more energy entering these realms of your life. Whether this means initiating intimacy, reigniting a previous spark, or simply becoming more open to the idea of new connections… the next few days will present you with new options. Venus shifting the earth sign of Taurus will give you a sense of solidity in who you are, and the level of love you deserve. Pay close attention to synchronicities surrounding relationships; and if you feel so inclined… lean into them.
Key Themes: Partnerships, communication, resources, pleasure, self-worth.
Libra, the month of May will be a time to go deep into your pleasure, how you provide it for yourself and how you experience it with others. As the month begins, you’ll still be feeling the effects of the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on April 30th. Be present with all of the changes that you’ve been integrating when it comes to how you share your resources.
On May 2nd, Venus enters Aries, activating your area of partnerships until the 28th. Love will be in the air! It’s a great time to meet someone new if you’re on the lookout, to reconnect and do something special together if you’re in a relationship, and to reconnect with yourself and your needs if you’re coming out of a long commitment.
On May 10th, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini until June 3rd, and it starts its backwards journey in your area of adventure and spirituality. You want to connect with the bigger picture, but it’s important that you give the small things the attention they need so they can serve your larger purpose. On the 22nd, Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus, bringing themes from the previous Eclipse.
Also on May 10th, Jupiter starts a new cycle as it enters Aries until October 28th, joining Venus in activating your area of one-on-one relationships. You’ll be able to get a clearer picture of what works and what doesn’t in your approach to partnerships. Jupiter, traditionally known as the great benefactor, offers you the opportunity to expand and improve your close relationships.
On May 16th, the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio is happening at 12:14am EST, illuminating your area of resources. Connect with any fears you may have surrounding money and scarcity. Really allow yourself to go in there. Also connect with whatever abundance means to you. Nature is a great reference.
Gemini Season comes rolling in on the 20th, shining a light on your need for freedom until June 21st. As Mercury retrograde moves out of Gemini on the 22nd, it’ll be a great time to activate all of the things you reviewed and reassessed concerning your desire to come out of your comfort zone and to connect with new kinds of people and experiences.
On May 24th, Mars enters Aries, joining Jupiter in your area of partnerships until July 4th, offering you the energy that you need to face yourself and face your lover, bestie or associate. It’s a wonderful placement to be honest with what you desire and to put in the work to fix what needs to be mended within the relationships.
On May 28th, Venus enters Taurus, joining Mercury in your area of sexuality until July 17th. This is a great time to have conversations surrounding each other’s needs in bed. Also a good time to address the things that aren’t working within your collaborations.
May comes to an end with the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th at 7:30am EST, helping you connect with the emotions that keep you from living the kind of freedom and expansion you desire. So much healing will come from just being in touch with your feelings.

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.
