As we enter the closing quarter of 2020, the planets are busy beyond words. So here’s a brief rundown. First off, Equinox happened on September 23, the official signal of the astronomical fall. In early September, Mars went retrograde in fiery Aries, prompting us to slow down and take a good long look at what angers us and why. Last but not least, on October 14, Mercury Retrograde starts. If you’re not familiar with this planet’s slowdown phase, take it from me: proceed with caution. Mercury is associated with all things communication- and information-related (email, snail mail, contracts, etc.), so when this planet retrogrades, make sure to double-check all details before sending something off. Mercury retrograde ends on November 3, an already highly contentious date due to the presidential election. Whew. Take it easy this month, folks.
Without further ado, it’s time to celebrate Libra season! Libras are ruled by the love-and-beauty planet Venus. If you know any Libras, you also know that one of their favorite pastimes is shopping for beautiful clothes or seeking gorgeous vistas to visit. But primarily Libras are associated with balance, especially since their sign’s symbol is the scales. Libras enjoy fighting for justice and advocating for fairness in the workplace as well as the world at large. But this air sign needs to be careful—their constant search for equilibrium can end up veering them away from their own thoughts and ideas. This sign adores partnership; however, this can sometimes negatively manifest as neediness. It can also make them avoid conflict at all costs, but you won’t mind that when you meet a Libra. Their charm and social graces make them the perfect companion at any party.
