Libra Horoscope (September 23 - October 22)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are in rehearsal for the next phase of your career path, Libra. Introspection rules and while it does you are receiving epiphanies of where in your life you are going right now, and even why. As your vision creates a better future you find yourself in the midst of a tremendous process of review and renewal. This might be about neither vocation nor strictly avocation but a clever combination. Aiding you are flashes of inspiration that come more and more frequently now. These have the power to lift you out of the consensus mold. Pay close attention to everything that is happening to you. This is like a drug trip without the drugs, or a visit into outer space without the suit.
As the month begins you are riding the wave of the New Moon from the last ten days of August that energized your sector of societal connection and inhabited possibility. This makes for an energized period of time, but other planetary factors are conspiring to in conflict, which brings you to a more meditative space. You have in fact before you a month of contrasts. In one way, you are shooting the Moon, going for the gold ring, and it involves signing up for a future that you can really live with, but in another you are bound to be more reflective and introspective, especially after the sixth, when Mercury retrogrades in your sign. The Full Moon that comes along just two days before that, on Friday, September 4th, brings you to an interesting place of innovation and hopeful optimism for the future, and for finding your life's true purpose, while simultaneously sifting through the ashes of the past for what is of most value to you as you make your way forward. It's a case of three steps forward and two steps backward, perhaps, but in any case you must recognize that you cannot expect to make a complete break with the past even as you sail off into the unknown. With the Mercury retrograde period that begins at the end of the same weekend, you will be looking back as well as ahead, and mulling over your possibilities in an introspective way even as you continue to make plans for your departure from the old standards. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, September 11th, holds out the possibility of further insights although some of these could be along the lines of where you will encounter limitations that will keep your ship from fully leaving the harbor just as you thought the voyage was about to begin. Courage in the face of fear may turn out to be your biggest friend and your most important product right now. The New Moon that comes along a week later, taking place on Friday, September 18th, will be a strong one for you, with a great emphasis on the past and on holding on, and plenty of spiritual component to it as well, as well as the impulse to move forward into a uniquely personal forward-looking path that represents your best understanding of what it is that you came into this life to fulfill. The remainder of the month will be a time of joy in the working out of these ideas, and perhaps also of struggle in actually manifesting them. With the First Quarter Moon of Friday, September 25th, a crux of some kind is likely to be reached. You are changing at the very core of your being and this month and also the next six weeks afterward, well into November, will be a powerful indication of this basic, and incredible, and largely inescapable reality.
