September 23 – October 22
If you find your passion again, you’ll feel able to achieve what you want with your usual deft touch. If you’ve been feeling a lack of passionate purpose lately it may have been hard to stay motivated. You may need a nudge from a friend or associate to push you out of lethargy, so listen up to whatever advice comes your way and weigh your options – there may be more options than you know.
If you and a loved one have a confrontation around October 2, try to focus on the comfortable bond between you, not on who’s right or wrong. This is just a bit of mischief from a transit that will pass quickly.
Good news: there may be a moneymaking opportunity around the 15th, so stay alert!

A few words about Librans
Because your symbol is the Scales of Justice, people always expect you to be balanced, a dicey task in a wacky world. In truth, the gift of your sign, dear Libra, is the ability and need to seek balance, which doesn’t mean you’ll always find it, only that you’ll keep on trying against ridiculous odds.
Your balancing act can be challenged by your favorite tormentor: love. So try to remind yourself that ups and downs, while hard on the nerves, provide some of life’s most essential – and in the case of love, most pleasurable – lessons. You’re drawn by your nature to partnership, whether in marriage or business, and you need to dignify your relationships with contracts or marriage licenses that give you – at least for the moment – a sense of safety and completion.
Cosmically, your birth month is the turning point in the Zodiac between individual unfoldment and the structuring of relationships, so the journey into relationship is what you’re all about in this lifetime... and like it or not, Venus rules!
Librans and Love
Ruled by Venus, your heart needs beauty and harmony like other hearts need potassium – you simply can’t survive without them. You, also (more than other signs) need friends, lovers, allies – to help you on the journey toward self-knowledge.
Venus makes you beautiful and attractive to others, a most generous and gracious gift. She also makes you long for peace and harmony and balance – to say nothing of longing for the good life. You both want and need a life full of creature comforts, fine food, beautiful homes and a great wardrobe, and it doesn’t hurt to have a loyal group of admirers who are drawn to your glow like moths to the flame.
Libra and Career
You’re the mediator in the workplace and very fair-minded. Given your druthers, you’ll opt for the high road in negotiation and in decision-making. You do well in all businesses that have to do with fashion, art, architecture or any other expression of beauty, balance and harmony, and you can be a fine judge of whatever happens to need judging, whether on a tennis court or in a court of law.
Libra and Finance
Finance isn’t your best area of expertise – not because you can’t figure it out, but because your Venusian nature generally opts for the good life, rather than the fiscally frugal one. Frugality is just not generous enough for you, and your optimistic spirit truly believes that the new Lagerfeld something or other you just splurged on will look so good on you that it will inspire some windfall to come out of the blue to pay for it. You can fall into shopoholism with the drop of a credit card, and if it ever comes to a choice between food and Armani, your wardrobe will win hands down.
Libra and Friends
You love your friends… love making them, having them, confiding in them and knowing they’re there for you in times of crisis. Because your attractiveness to others is nature’s gift, worrying about friendship really doesn’t make you lose much sleep – you just assume friends will always be around. What can be worrisome for you is any dissension in the ranks. If your cohorts argue among themselves or wrangle about who’s your favorite, your sense of balance goes haywire and you can’t rest until you smooth all the feathers and make sure there’s harmony again.
