Late summer is usually full of chaos. Kids and teens head back to school, those vacation days are all dried up, and everyone faces down the barrel of a cold, desolate wintry landscape. But Libra season is here to bring balance back into our lives.
Beginning on September 23 and lasting through October 22, Libra season blankets astrological signs with harmonious energy, encouraging all the signs to seek balance in their work, relationships, and with themselves. With the holiday season drawing closer, there are so many wonderful things to look forward to, and Libra season is here to help you even the playing field of your life.
To understand how Libra is going to affect the astrological signs, discover your zodiac sign and its unique traits.
What's Coming Down the Pike for Aries
Aries, Libra season brings with it an antithetical urge to your natural traits. Instead of starting fights, you might feel compelled to settle them. Libra energy is all about pursuing justice, but through ethical and diplomatic means — not with fists and strong words. Stretch your diplomatic muscles and uncover where you fall short in this arena.
This is the right time to address any hurdles you’ve experienced in balancing your personal relationships with your need for independence. While it might not seem like it, you are stronger when you’ve got people at your side. Rally your friends around you and show them how important they are to you, even if you’re not always around.
What Taurus Can Expect
Taurus, you and Libra share a fondness for all things beautiful. This inherent appreciation might come to the forefront during Libra season. Consider relishing in the natural world, the arts, and creative exploration to satisfy that wonderment.
Similarly, you might feel pushed to break free from your routine and socialize more than usual. We know you love nothing more than spending a night on a high-quality sofa and in an impeccably decorated living room, but let Libra season challenge you to spend your nights out with friends. Remember that you’re not just of this world but in it, and you deserve to see what it offers.
How Gemini Will Handle Libra Season
Gemini — you and Libra are like two peas in a pod with your love of chatting people up and getting right in the middle of a conversation, even if you weren’t there to begin with. Get ready to wow the crowd and expand your friend group because your social skills are going to be on point during Libra season.
However, there is a challenge in the air to go beyond surface small talk and deepen your connections. As someone with a tendency to push and pull (you are represented by two separate people, after all), you might have avoided making intimate connections in the past. Foster those rich, long-lasting bonds by tapping into Libra’s need for meaningful camaraderie.
What Libra Season Has in Store for Cancer
Libra season is set to be a blissfully restorative period for Cancer. As you move through the next few weeks, you should feel like the puzzle pieces of your life are falling into place. As a zodiac sign whose emotions and relationships are often out of sync, Libra season gives you the opportunity to nurture your emotional state into something stable enough to not leech off of other people’s feelings. Your empathy is a great tool until it’s being used against you.
And the better the grip you have on your emotions, the easier it’ll be for you to establish stronger boundaries between your emotions and others. While you’re at it, you might as well extend those boundaries into other disharmonious parts of your life so you can start the last quarter of the year off strong.
Libra Season's Effect on Leo
Leos, as a naturally prideful bunch, Libra season is going to supercharge all that self-confidence. But as the themes of balance and harmony seep into your life, take heed of letting that vanity turn into arrogance in the face of others' insecurities. Instead, use that assuredness to uplift those around you.
Similarly, you might feel yourself caught by the flirting bug. Of course, Libra season is chock-full of amorous energy (after all, Libras are guided by Venus), and it’s likely that your self-confidence will draw people to you like moths to a flame.
But let the idea of balancing your confident spirit with a more sensitive approach to the people in your life guide you throughout the next month.
What the Stars Have in Store for Virgo
On the one hand, Libra season’s urge for balance is something a practical-minded Virgo can immediately run with. You can schedule more breaks, work towards greater efficiency at your job, and rally your friends for a general check in. However, the season also brings a potential pitfall to Virgo’s natural productivity.
For some, Libra season can be a time where it’s difficult to make decisions. And while water signs can go with the flow, earth signs like Virgo might struggle more in the face of this decreased productivity. Don’t take the indecisiveness to heart — things will right themselves when Libra season fades into Scorpio.
What Libra Might Get Up to in Your Season
Watch out everybody, Libra season is here, and Libras are shining brighter than ever. This is your season, so it’s time to embrace all the things that make you, you. Polish your scales, because it’s the season to call every aspect of your life into balance. You should have the energy and motivation coming from the stars to work towards creating a new equilibrium between your personal life and professional pursuits.
However, be careful of spending the time lost in your less productive traits. Indecisiveness, vanity, and a need to stir the pot hide in the shadows waiting to strike. Normally, they’re easy to avoid, but during your season, even your most challenging traits can get a boost.
How Scorpio Might Handle Libra Season's Effects
Scorpio, as a water sign you have a penchant for being emotional, though you face your battles inside rather than wearing them on your sleeve. Throughout the year, you might’ve retreated from others — even your loved ones — when you get overwhelmed by the vast emotional tumult inside. Thankfully, Libra season offers a respite from this usual struggle.
During Libra season, you might want to focus on processing your emotions so you can make space to be available for the other relationships in your life. If your isolation has caused some rifts between you and your loved ones, take this season to reconnect with them and build up those connections.
How Sagittarius Will Navigate Libra Season
Sagittarius, you’re in your happy place when you’re surrounded by new friends and new places. Take Libra season's social energy and translate it into fostering friendships around the world. Try out new locales, head to strange locations you’ve never heard of, and bring your friends along for the ride. There are no limits to the space you’ll make for the people you love, and this is a great season to expand that ever-growing circle even more.
However, be careful about taking your hook ‘em and leave ‘em attitude towards romantic relationships too far. Libra season stirs up a flirtatious energy that, unchecked, might make you callously leave a long line of lovers in your wake.
What Capricorn Can Expect This Season
Capricorn, Libra season is a much-needed astrological period for you. Ambitious to a fault, you’ve got a workaholic streak a mile wide. Thankfully, Libra season can be a soothing balm to this imbalance by curbing that ambition, if only for a few weeks. During this time, you’ve got a great chance to create a better work/life balance. And if you want to pursue your passions at the rate you’re heading, it’s important that you do.
Similarly, you might find yourself extra sensitive to injustice, so take care of yourself as you interact with the ills of the world. While you should do your part to seek justice, don’t turn it into another crusade that allows you to ignore addressing the other imbalanced areas in your life.
What's in Store for Aquarius in Libra Season
Aquarius, Libra season is likely to have less of an impact on you than other zodiac signs. While you’re likely to be pushed towards creating harmony in your social circles and balancing your unique independence with your need for socialization, there aren’t as many areas for you to improve on.
As someone with such a creative outlook on life, you already exist outside of social constraints that so many subject themselves to in order to fit in. Since you embrace your quirks in a way others might struggle to, you naturally have a more balanced life than most.
All That's Coming for Pisces in Libra Season
Pisces, you take pride in giving so much of yourself to others. But that can be a detriment to your own emotional and mental wellbeing. Use Libra season’s balanced energy to work on asserting self-care practices and scaling back on how much of yourself you lay at other people’s feet.
And while you might be compelled to look for answers in other people’s company as Libra season drums up social energy, avoid doing so at all costs. Instead, address your own struggles by separating your emotions from others’ and work to build better internal boundaries.
We Can't Wait for Everything Libra Season Has in Store
From creating a better work/life balance to curbing your social bug with long nights out, Libra season is set to be chock-full of some interesting stuff. From late-September to late-October, you can expect to create a beautiful equilibrium between all the aspects of your life. And if you’re careful, you’ll be able to carry that harmony with you into the final quarter of the year.
