Do we all need to feel more balanced, or what? This year Libra season takes on more emphasis than usual. Covid isolation has knocked everyone around a bit, and we need to get back on our feet. Here are 3 tips for rocking the 2020 Libra season:
1. Get clear on your goals. Maybe you’ve lost your job, or you’re waiting to get called back. Perhaps you’ve decided to pivot and do things differently in your career. In matters of the heart, single people feel as though they’ve been in the desert as social distancing has thrown the mother of all monkey wrenches into the dating scene.
Many of you are home schooling your kids. Others have decided to boost their immune system and get into fabulous physical shape. Lots of people are finally getting around to hobbies that have been on their bucket list for years.
Here’s the deal: THREE planets are in goal-oriented Capricorn right now, which is kind of unusual. And all freakin’ three of them were retrograde over the past few months, which really slo-o-o-wed down progress. Jupiter, the happiest and most abundant of them all, went direct on September 12th.
Discipline-oriented Saturn resumes direct motion on September 29th, and Pluto bolts forward on October 4th. The cosmic logjams are breaking up, people! Even Dr. Fauci announced a few days ago that he’s confident that a vaccine will be available soon, perhaps before the year is out.
So get your act together and start planning 2021. Get a jump on it now. You’ll be glad you did.
2. Speak your piece….preferably before October 13th!! You probably know where this is going…..yup, Mercury starts to retrograde then in Scorpio. As Mercury retrogrades go, this one shouldn’t be too hellatious. Three days later a new moon occurs in diplomatic Libra.
But considering that Scorpio rules sex, intimacy, deep emotions and net worth—definitely hot topics–you need to clear up love and money matters as best you can. As early in the month as you can. There is some really tense and confusing energy arriving on October 18th and 19th, so make things easy on yourself. Bite the bullet in the first two weeks of October and get things out in the open. Go over your financial statements and figure out how you’re going to build more savings and reduce debt.
Again…you’ll be glad you did, especially at the time of the full moon on (scary music) Halloween. More about that in the October blog post.
3. Be a team player…..even through gritted teeth. Libras have this unfortunate stereotype of being so giving and so diplomatic that they end up being (a) a doormat and (b) too wishy-washy. This isn’t reality, nor should it be.
But anytime the Sun is in Libra, all twelve signs of the zodiac need to up their teamwork game. This year especially, as big mouth Mars is in Aries, the sign of me-me-me. Mars opposes the Sun and is flipping the bird to planets in Capricorn, the house of authority figures.
So…..it will be way too easy to lose your temper if you perceive that things aren’t going your way. Mars could put many people in an aggressive, selfish place in which they’re hell bent on pushing their own agenda.
Pay attention to September 23rd and 29th. Also October 1st, 9th, 11th, 13th, 15th, 18th, 19th and 21st.
Yes…that’s a lot of intense days. I’m not telling you to lie back and take abuse from anyone. But make sure that YOU are not the person acting out, as it will bring unwelcome attention your way. Let your obnoxious co-workers, neighbors or in-laws take the hit, not you.
Another way this energy could play out is that you might decide that you are totally done with a particular career choice or romantic relationship, for whatever reason. If that’s the case, the full moon on Halloween could put the final nail in that coffin (pun intended!).
On another note, the October monthly horoscopes will go live on Monday, September 28th at 8 pm EST, which is not usually how I roll. In the past I’ve always posted them on the very last evening of the month.
But this year, October has two full moons, and one is on the 1st. There’s a lot of stuff going on with this lunation, so I decided to give you a jump on things a few days early. Pluto and Saturn are telling you to make some big decisions (“quit procrastinating…just do it already”), so check out your October monthly horoscope early for the details.
