Libra (23 September – 23 October)
The beginning of the month brings the end of a chapter as key planets complete their transit through Virgo, the sign before yours in the zodiac.
This is important for you because one of the planets involved is Venus, your ruling planet.
Plus on the 3rd, Venus conjoins with Mars in Virgo and the lovers of the heavens unite. This highlights relationships and personal issues but nothing is out in the open.
There’s a theme of secrecy, unrequited love perhaps, a love affair or someone who’s unavailable. It’s all going on behind closed doors rather than out in the open.
This situation doesn’t take long to shift or change because Venus enters your sign of Libra on the 8th followed by Mars on the 12th. This requires a decision, one you need to think through logically and rationally. It’s up to you what you decide but if this ‘hidden theme’ in your life has been a cause of anxiety or worry, it’s time to move on.
Venus remains in your sign of Libra throughout the rest of November and this is a stunning planetary transit for you. Venus loves being in your sign of Libra because it’s the relating planet and the relating sign hand-in-hand.
There’s more to it than that however because Venus represents simple pleasures, nature, nurture, sensuality. These qualities thrive best when life’s in flow and there’s balance in all things. This is what your sign of Libra can provide at its best.
If you’re a typical Libra, you want people to get on well and you don’t enjoy conflict. Venus in your sign offers you stability and security on an emotional level and this is going to be especially lovely after a year that’s included many twists and turns. Relationships have not been easy so it’s time to re-find your equilibrium and seek out people who make you feel good about yourself.
When Venus is in your sign you’re more popular so make the most of this and use Venus’ winning ways to attraction attention, get your name known and boost your profile. Venus rules beauty and this is prime time to look after your appearance, buy new clothes, have a haircut or makeover or indulge in beauty treatments.
Your idyll might be a world without conflict, a peaceful environment, but that’s often illusory. As mentioned previously, Mars joins Venus in Libra and in mythology Mars was God of war. This can be a feisty placing for Mars when it’s in your sign although Mars isn’t strong in Libra. Yet it’s still important to channel your anger constructively. What is helpful is that Mars doesn’t make any challenging aspects this month and it’s a relatively peaceful Mars which marches through your sign. Use this transit to get ahead with your personal goals as Mars rules ambition.
The trickiest couple of days are the 21st – 23rd when your ruler Venus clashes with the outer planets Pluto and Uranus. This isn’t anything new but it could drag up an old argument or issue from the past. Pluto and Uranus are in people sectors of your chart; Uranus is in your opposite sign of Aries ruling your 1-to-1’s and Pluto’s in Capricorn and your home and family sector.
This indicates a clash of personalities, a difference of opinion and you might find yourself caught up in the middle of a disagreement. Other people are likely to turn to you to act as diplomat, mediator and keep things nice. It’s not the best few days to meet up with family or the in-laws if you have a difficult history and avoid anyone who’s out to cause trouble.
Money matters are on the up this month as both Mercury, the communication planet, and the Sun move through Scorpio and your personal money sector. You might find money comes your way from a past connection, the sale of your childhood home, an older family member or a private benefactor.
There’s a secret quality about money matters this month and you could receive a gift from an unknown source. The first two weeks of November are best for making progress financially and the New Moon in Scorpio on the 11th is a powerful date to set your intentions and sow seeds which can grow and flourish.
Work isn’t prominent now and for some of you this is a time when you will feel confused or uncertain about your career path and what you do for a living. Neptune, the planet of confusion, is currently in Pisces and your work sector and turns direct on the 18th.
At its best Neptune lends you creativity and imagination but you can end up feeling lost or all at sea. Go with the flow as best you can at work and don’t worry if your career is not currently your top priority.
The last week of the month evokes a theme of sacrifice or surrender when you recognise what you can and can’t control in your life. This might be linked to your work path, your health or lifestyle.
What other people say can trigger a strong response and you want to make a stand or be true to your principles. The most emotional time is during the Full Moon on the 25th which cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. This evokes a sense of yearning, wanting to do something different, for example, expand your horizons and on some level at least, escape reality.
Don’t take other people’s opinions to heart or let words wound you at the end of November. Keep firm boundaries in place and a tight control on your own emotions. If you’re especially sensitive around other people or what’s happening in the world, keep a protective barrier around yourself. Being kind to you and putting your own needs first continues to be a key theme.
