Astro Alert: Sun Enters Libra•
Posted on September 21 2020
On the 22nd, the Sun leaves practical Virgo for the communicative, balance-seeking sign of Libra. In the following month, relationships will be our main focus, and enjoyment of all things beautiful will get us through the day. It’s a good time to connect to loved ones and to our power of attraction.
Sun in Libra: September 22- October 22
After a month of practical, brainy Virgo vibes, Libra season is here to delight our senses and to bring us closer to what makes us feel happy, content and loved.
Libra is all about balance, whether it’s in our inner world or in our relationships. In the following month, we’ll navigate the complex web of our connections, looking to give and to receive, to please and to enjoy, looking for a middle point between the self and others.
It’s a dynamic transit- the Sun opposes retrograde Mars in Aries and squares Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn throughout his journey in sensitive Libra. Our way of connecting to others, making our wishes known while also considering theirs, will be a major theme this month.
If we tend to be too self-centered or, on the contrary, too accommodating in our relationships, there might be situations that prompt us to reconsider our approach. Others will be truthful mirrors of our inner world, expressing what we’re silencing down. For example, those of us who tend to make compromises just to keep the peace might clash with someone who tends to dominate- or vice-versa.
Themes linked to rules, control, issues with authority figures can come to the surface, prompting us to take full responsibility for the way we show up in our relationships; no more blaming the other or keeping a status quo that harms us. Our Libra side is looking for fair exchanges, balanced give, and takes constructive connections. We’re supported to go through the possible storm that precedes peace by relying on our inner authority, our patience, and resilience.
Since the cardinal axis (the Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn square) is madly active this month and Cancer is the absent sign, it helps to invite some of the gentle, nurturing, comfort-loving energy of this sign into our lives, whether it’s through cooking a hearty meal, spending more time at home or showing empathy for the people around us. It will also help to connect to our gentle, sensual, artistic side, courtesy of graceful Libra. What kind of safe oasis do you want to create for yourself and your loved ones this Libra season?
