Libra Horoscope (September 23 - October 22)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You may seem to be intent on climbing to the top of your local food chain this month, Libra, but there is a internal spiritual motivation behind your outer-world mission, as you search for the deeper meaning. With Mercury retrograde in your career sector you are also reviewing and revising your approach in this area, especially in the first half of the month, from the 4th to the 18th or so. You are in the midst of a powerful perspective change with fresh attempts at more fully understanding your true situation, but you may want to hold off on tackling any course corrections until after all the returns are in, perhaps not until as late as the second week of August.
As the month begins, you are making a fresh start in career and professional life, following the New Moon from the end of last month in that sector of your chart. You are also philosophically disposed toward changes in perspective during this monthly period, especially at the time of the First Quarter Moon of Monday, July 3rd, when some tension arises in the course of events that are unfolding, and perhaps some startling new information may come to light concerning your situation. The retrograde of Mercury is also immanent, taking place the following day, on July 4th, and introducing a new phase. You are striving at this time to make concepts of service to others and to your own higher purpose for yourself more concrete and available in your life, and as a result perhaps making a mental u-turn in where you thought that you were heading. There are new conceptions in the works for you all right, but with Mercury retrograde nearly all month long it may be wise not to act too swiftly on them, preferring to take a "wait and see" attitude for the time being. The Full Moon of Monday, July 10th, kicks off another period of transformation, when you see yourself and your world differently, and when your communication, either written or spoken, reflects the great changes that you are going through at this time. The Last Quarter Moon that comes along a week later represents another turning point, when you may be forced by circumstances to drop some portion of your career goals and perhaps some emotional baggage along with it, and when ancient patterns of the way that you show up in the world might be finally yielding. With the New Moon of Monday, July 24th, in your sector of wishes and hopes and societal connection, you may well be ready for a new dawning of vision for your possibilities, which will reach a crescendo by month's end. It is difficult to remain detached and merely play the witness through the revolving viewpoints that you encounter this month, but you'll be well rewarded if you can find the patience to do so.
