LibraSeptember 22 - October 22
Libra, let any drama go. The moon is in the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces – inviting us collectively into a more intuitive and sensitive way of existing. Here, we shift out of the mental spheres, and more deeply into realms of creativity and connection. Libra, we’re getting to that busy time of the year which means it’s all too easy to get caught up in the energy of those around you. The current astrological transits are providing you with a remedy for this: self-focus. You don’t have to ghost anyone, but it will be important to prioritize your time and energy. Maybe you reply slower, or push back a few social commitments if that feels better to you. Remind yourself you have the right to do so!
New! KTZ Compatibility
Key themes: daily rituals, home, family, ancestry, traditions, adventures, spiritual explorations, partnerships.
What a wild ride 2022 has been, after two years deep in a life changing pandemic, we’ve been able to start taking steps out of a life with so many restrictions (depending on the reality of each part of the world) and step into a life where enjoying the outside world and planning for a future seems more tangible. None of us are the same as who we were three years ago, the collective trauma is real, but so are the ways in which we’re thriving to heal and mend, collectively and individually.
We start December with nebulous Neptune going direct in Pisces on the 3rd, sparking our imaginations and our ability to dream. Look at the spiritual wellness you’ve been bringing into your life during the past five months. Don’t forget about this going forward. You may think you can do it all, but that’s not always true. Make space in your schedule for the things you know that bring you ease and keep you centered.
On the 6th, Mercury, the messenger, leaves the expansive fire of Sagittarius, to enter the earthy focus of Capricorn, followed by Venus, the goddess of love, doing the same on the 9th. This happens in your area of home and family, leading you to dig deep into your ancestral stories, traditions, sorrows and joys, the things that inform you of your sense of rootedness. Ask an elder about foundational family stories, learn the lullabies they sung to your parents, practice your Nana’s recipe.
The last Full Moon of 2022 is happening in Gemini on the 7th at 11:08 pm EST, reminding us, in the midst of so much chatter, to be in deep exchange with ourselves. Illuminating your area of philosophical pursuits and journeys that lead to new experiences, this Full Moon pulls focus on your big dreams. What are your hopes for the foreseeable future? What are you doing or what can you do to make those visions come true?
On the 20th, Jupiter leaves Pisces for good and will enter Aries, starting a new twelve year cycle of expansion and wisdom around the zodiac. You want partnerships, alliances, friendships that light you up, so choose your sidekicks wisely. You want to surround yourself with the ones that are taking their dreams seriously, that are being brave and daring about it. Being with them, it’ll be hard for you not to do the same!
We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st! Beginning with the winter solstice, the sun’s journey through Capricorn reminds us of the power of our commitments. Followed by the last New Moon of the year happening in Capricorn on the 23rd at 5:17 am EST, bringing a breath of fresh air into your home and family relations. This is a beautiful time to give yourself the love and nurture you seek. Renew your stories of not belonging. Dig deep until you find yourself, until you tap into warmth. Reclaim your roots.
On the 23rd, Chiron, the wounded healer, will be going direct in Aries in your area of one-0n-one relationships, commitments and how you come out into the world. This is a reminder that the more you acknowledge and make space for your wounds to be felt, the more fit you will be to open up to honest and stable relationships.
2022 comes to an end with Mercury going retrograde in Capricorn on the 29th. The end of the year will be asking us to review our commitments, to see how much we truly want to be invested in them. Keep this in mind when making your new year’s resolutions. In your case there will be a special focus on home, family, your roots and ancestral lineage, care-taking, nurturing, especially when it comes to your own needs and the needs of your blood or chosen family.

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.
