Libra Season: October Horoscopes
Libra Season! The halfway point of the year when day and night equally share the sky. We’re coming from Virgo season when discernment, refinement, and organization were a prelude for today. Libra season is focused on weighing what matters most: what is of value (Venus is Libra’s ruling planet that governs quality and value), what brings us mental proclivity, and where we are more sensitive to our environment and thus; how our environment and relationships affect our thoughts and ideas about ourselves. Libra, an Air Cardinal sign, shows where we take initiative to bring out better harmony and balance within ourselves so that we can feel better in balance with the world around us. Notice where during this season, you are particularly aware of needing balance and willing to create more beauty and harmony in your life.
This season, Mercury will go retrograde once again from October 13, starting in the sign Scorpio and ending on November 3, 2020, in the sign Libra, making this Libra season particularly sensitive to our relationship to everything, especially ourselves.
Happy Birthday!! It’s that time of year again when you’re leading, just like your opposite sign Aries! The New and Full Moons in both signs are shedding light on where we are not in harmony with our actions so that we can work on being better at it. The New Moon in your sign on October 16 initiates a new cycle of better relationships.
