LibraSeptember 22 - October 22
The Moon is in Scorpio this weekend, allowing us to take time to absorb the enlightening vibes of the recent Libra New Moon. Remember that being conscious with oneself and nourishing one’s soul is an intention in itself. Libra, your sensitivity to your environment deepens this weekend, so make sure you’re surrounded by people who feel safe and uplifting. If you need a break from too much socializing or saying yes to invitations, gift yourself that. You may be more in the mood to get lost in a dreamy book, set your new moon intentions, make a mixtape, or make love with someone who can hold you in their arms and let you know you mean the world to them.
Today’s Libra New Moon takes place at 3:31pm EST, and it activates a six-month cycle of creating more harmony and equilibrium within ourselves and our relationships. Take time to set new moon intentions this weekend regarding how you’d like to consistently feel six months from now. Libra, you are shining more brightly than ever, even if you’ve also felt more lonely these past few months. It’s because solitude is part of your journey of transformation and ascension, and this New Moon helps you embrace the process of rebirth while remembering that life’s full of cycles, and you don’t always have to grow in a linear way. More people and opportunities are coming your way these next six months, and they’re specifically tailored to the energy you’ve been seeking. Be grateful in advance for your blessings.
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.
