Darlings! I hope September has been treating you well. We have several retrogrades happening. Mercury Retrograde is happening in the sign of Libra, affecting our close relationships. Have you been having communication issues? Libra energy loves maintaining a balance between opposites, so that might be difficult. I’ve noticed that it’s been challenging to remain open-minded and fair. I try to use retrograde periods as a time to reflect and recalibrate.
From this Friday until October 22nd, the sun will be in the sign of Libra. Libra is a cardinal air sign; represented by scales. Ruled by Venus and the Seventh House, Libras are charismatic and social creatures. They have an artistic side and can be effective communicators. They may follow a certain aesthetic, appreciating beauty and style. They may value romance and relationships over other areas of their life. They can be generous and charming towards others. A Libra may struggle to decide between two options. They can be impatient with others and run the risk of being manipulative to get their way. They can also be gullible if someone tells them what they want to hear.
Notable Libra people: Halsey, Hugh Jackman, Brie Larson, Bella Hadid, Snoop Dogg, Dakota Johnson, Bruno Mars
Other Libra Placements
Do you have any Libra placements in your chart? I don’t have any air placements to speak of, so it’s always interesting to learn about them.
If you have a Libra Moon, you may be creative. You express your emotions through art or your surroundings. You can balance things naturally. If an aspect of life isn’t working for you or someone else, you can usually gauge how to correct it. It’s important not to bury your emotions for the sake of others, however. Keeping quiet won’t always keep the peace.
If you have a Libra Rising, you’re probably well-liked. You’re intelligent, optimistic, and charismatic in front of others. Even if you’re reserved, people may flock to you based on aesthetics alone. As with a Libra moon, you should always stick up for yourself. Try not to worry too much about appearing nice all the time.
