Libra season kicks off on September 23, and on the day that the sun enters Libra, we will experience equal day and night. The equinox will be brief—but for a moment, balance will befall us.
There is nothing that Libra wants more than peace, harmony, and beautiful surroundings. Astrological signs get their meaning, in part, by how nature appears when the sun is traveling through their sign. Libra loathes when the scales of justice are tipped—which is evident by the equal amount of light and dark on the first day of its season.
This makes Libra a sign extremely sensitive to the slightest inequity or wrongly-placed accessory. They may be famous for their people-pleasing ways, but a Libra will work relentlessly to right a wrong. Libra believes in fair treatment for all, which also gives it an ability to be open to all sides of a story. Ruled by Venus, Goddess of Gorgeousness, Libra knows how to add a splash of color and a twist of a tie—and has an uncanny talent for effortlessly completing a look.
From September 23 through October 23, Libra season will bear all of these tried and true sentiments about the sign; this is a moment for all signs to contemplate how to experience more harmony, how to fill our worlds with more beauty and connection, and how to be flirtatious with our goals.
However, Libra season will also bring with it a reality check.
Due to some challenging relationships between the planets moving through Libra and Saturn (the planet of boundaries, discipline, and duty) and Pluto (planet of power, intensity, and long-lasting changes) in Capricorn, we are asked this season to be our own judge and jury. Libra loves to socialize and enjoy the pleasures of life, but our responsibilities may overtake our calendars come the last week of September up until the second week of October, when a dramatic full Moon in Aries will dominate. This will be the peak of both Libra Season and October. The events of our lives leading up to the full Moon are much more serious in tone than the events following it.
Libra Season advises us to temporarily cut what is unnecessary from our calendars and pay attention to our number one priorities. Doing so will tap us into a deeper appreciation for our time, how precious it is, and what we can get done given what we have to work with.
