Virgo season was all about checking in with the purpose behind ourselves and our work. It was the perfect introduction into Libra season which will be all about relationships and blossoming on the beauty of all things that surround us. Virgo season was the foundation and the building blocks of who we are and why we do what we do, guiding us right into Libra season where we get to make it all our own and sprinkle the world with our very unique touch.
Libra is represented by the symbol of the scale and is ruled by the element of Air and the planet Venus. Air is the element that will most freely and beautifully express emotions and mental processes. Venus is the ruler of love and beauty. When Air and Venus work together in the sign of Libra, it is expressed as signs of adoration, beauty, art, thoughtfulness, balance, harmony, rhythm and all things art. This season will be a great time to get in touch with your artistic side, a time to see live music, a time to paint something, to write anything that is expressive of what is in your heart. That ties heavily into your relationships. In the beginning of this Libra season, take time to soothe and mend relationships that need healing. Learn to be patient with others, build bridges to create open paths of communication, forgive and move forward. This comes with a deep understanding of who YOU are, as you learn to work with others, you will learn tremendously about yourself. A big part of “doing the work” to heal, is learning your own patterns that you are already embedded in. You cannot manage what you cannot measure.
This part of healing and recognizing your own patterns is going to be very useful as Venus moves into Scorpio on October 8th. Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto, the signs that rule war and transformation. When Venus, the planet of love, moves into Scorpio, you will be seeking and confronting all relationships very intensely. There will be a need for diving deep into matters of romance, friendship and family. Any relationship that is surface level will fizzle out, to help you through the transformation, to guide you toward the meaningful aspects of your life that you are meant to be putting your energy into. This is a time where everything will be mindful, full of purpose, full of passion, full of vigor and intensity. It will be such a beautiful time to invest in the relationships in your life. Give and receive with an open heart.
Mars will enter Scorpio on the 3rd of October as well, which will give you a bold and empowering approach to how you communicate with others. Communication will be very daring, but will always come from a place of love. Let the fire of the passions burning inside you settle down just a little, and always come from a place of love.
This may be easier to combat because Mars enters Libra on October 4th, as Libra will be the deterrent against confrontation and arguments. Libra in Mars will be a reminder to see both sides of an any situation and come back to the center and focus on creating the solution.
On October 13th we have a full moon in Aries, which is the opposite sign of Libra. Don’t be surprised if some seriously impulsive decisions and some spontaneous and adventurous thrill seeking takes place. If you find yourself stuck on making a decision throughout Libra season, this full moon will be the time where you are able to set that aside and be more concise. To quote the great Don Draper “Think about it a lot, and then let it go.”
On that note, go out and find some of the beauty surrounding you.
I’ll see you in Scorpio season! xo Jasmine
