What a week is in store! Of all the signs of the zodiac, your dreams and goals and desires will be front and center. September is shaping up to be a life-changing month for you, Libra, but the action starts before August ends.
Lovely Venus has been quietly gliding through your twelfth house of seclusion and confidentiality for several weeks. Are you harboring a crush on someone? Considering a somewhat risqué love affair, or are you already in one? Perhaps you’re happily attached and have been spending some quality boudoir time with your amour. Regardless, Monday brings a conjunction between Venus and Mercury in this part of the sky. Words could be spoken that are meant for your ears only.
But if you have been involved in a tricky situation, or an unhappy one, you may decide to move on once Mercury goes retrograde on Tuesday. It will be spinning backward in this mysterious house of the subconscious mind, the place where we ruminate over what’s going on in our lives so that we can cut our losses and move ahead. Mercury will ask you to consider all of the aspects of your life that need improvement, not just romance.
For what it’s worth, Venus struts her stuff into Libra on Monday after her hush-hush meeting with Mercury. You will be doused with charisma, and everyone, from potential suitors to employers, will be impressed. This is a wonderful time for a makeover, including plastic surgery or minor tweaks like Botox or Juvaderm. This is the planet of glam and beauty, after all, so if you think your appearance could use some freshening up, go for it.
September starts off with a bang on Thursday with a solar eclipse in Virgo, your twelfth house of nurturing, healing and closure. It’s time to say adios to things that no longer work for you. Truth be told, if you don’t make a conscious decision on your own to walk away from things that aren’t working, the eclipse could drag you kicking and screaming into the future. Make it easy on yourself and be brutally honest about your life. With Mercury in retrograde position, your thinking could be a little muddled.
But a wonderful aspect on Friday, a Mercury/Jupiter conjunction, should ease matters as Jupiter is the planet of optimism and ease. If you need to walk away from a toxic job, friend, habit or family member the decision can be made with a calm heart. The energy of this eclipse will be felt for months, so don’t think you have to have everything figured out right now.
The Moon will enter Libra over the weekend, helping you put your needs front and center. This is just the beginning, however—when lucky Jupiter enters your sign next week, it sets up 13 months of progress.
