Hello, Libra season! This week, put yourself in the path of beauty as Venus the goddess of love presides over this sign and Saturday’s new moon. Think: art galleries, scenic gardens, or beautifully-made clothing topped off by bubbles (whether from kombucha or Champagne is up to you!) Relationships catch the spotlight so before you tie your wagon to someone else’s, read the synopsis of their story, because they'll be co-writing yours. Do you amplify each other, are you heading toward the same sunset? Libra season is as much about saying no thanks as saying yes please. Be sure to weigh all sides. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of September 23 through to September 29, 2019, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.

While you easily demonstrate the you-do-you policy, the sun has stepped into your opposite sign, calling attention to significant otherness. Your relationship zone is lit this season, so lift your gaze from the trail you're blazing and focus on one-on-ones. Foster the side of your life that involves someone important. Whether it’s a romantic partner or prospect, a biz partnership, a family connection, or any other kind of equal relationship, be sure the emphasis is on the equal. You like beauty and charm, and could do with a little sweeping off your feet. This week, take a close look at exactly what you'd like to let go of in your current relationship: i.e., beliefs or behaviors that aren't authentically serving your heart. Visualise what you'd like, and how that looks and feels. Write out your intentions and meditate on them with an open heart.
Taurus | Taurus rising
This month spotlights your daily environment at work, which is great because you're a pragmatic sign that loves to shoulder the wheel and gains great satisfaction from traction. Make the most of the new moon by considering the relationships you have at work, how you'd like them to flow. Perhaps a dynamic duo to share the load? Call in your ultimate day-at-work vision. The new moon is also about daily routine and a commitment to work/life balance. This week, focus on healthy food--organic and as fresh as possible, if you can. Make a ritual out of your daily routine. Do something every day that beautifies and harmonizes your space. Check in daily for 1:1 time with a friend or colleague that makes you feel seen and heard. It's not always about going deep and meaningful, it's about adding some genuine pleasure to your day.
Gemini | Gemini rising
This week the spotlight is out of your nest and warming up your romance zone lighting up all that sparks joy, fun, and finding your twin. For you, this zone is ruled by the sign of Libra so activities will take on a rose-colored courtship vibe. There's a new moon in this area too so it’s a double up on potential amore. To get your Romeo and Juliet on, jazz up your dating profile or simply plan some extra romantic dates for you and your gorgeous one. Think beauty, the arts, and perhaps some predictable fall activities. Thank the summer for what it brought into your life, but it's time to plant your seeds of intention for the next phase. Visualize and write up your goals for love, as well as any creative pursuits you'd like to call into your life. This zone is all about self-expression so what does it for you regardless of outcome? Music? Blogging? Pizza? Don't deny yourself. Be sure to allow time to try new things as well as spend on activities you already know you love.
Cancer | Cancer rising
This week begins with the sun changing signs from fastidious Virgo into lovely Libra. Welcome the goddess of beauty and love into your home! It might be time to feather your nest this month as Libra is the sign of interior creativity, so fluff up those cushions and make some new additions. What a great time to close off summer by prepping your home for the coming cooler days and evenings. With the new moon also falling in this area for you over the weekend, its time to manifest your ideal vision of personal space. How do you want your home life to feel, what does the perfect scenario look like? A family dinner table with no screens allowed? Forgoing takeout in favor of easy home cooking? A closet purge? Whatever your vision, this is the week to start implementing.
Leo | Leo rising
As the sun sashays into Libra it forms a supportive flow to your sign. The relationships in your immediate environment are highlighted so get out and about and make a few extra pitstops at your favorite local haunts. Take the extra time to connect with people who cross your path or even line up some coffee dates. What's happening with your siblings? It may be time to reconnect as Venus in the same zone suggests the exchange will be a pleasure. If there’s any water under the bridge, it’s time to address it. Higher education or travel may be a sensitive area that’s clashing with enjoying your connections--how can you find balance or healing here? Get clear on your personal philosophies and be sure not to take on anyone else's if it doesn't resonate.
Virgo | Virgo rising
After a month of being relatively carefree while the sun has been shining in your sign, its time to change pace. The sun in Libra lights up your financial zone. This area suggests your value is partly thanks to your keen negotiating skills and ability to provide beauty, harmony, and artistic merit to all that you do. Consider collaborating as a dynamic duo. Find the Gayle to your Oprah and your combined talents may just sound like money in the bank. It's peak manifesting time with the new moon over the weekend so let go of any self-doubt in your abilities. You are equipped with capability so visualise and write your intentions around a healthy sense of self worth, see your value, and own what you offer. What would kind of figure would you like to make over the next six months or so? And how do you see yourself spending? What kind of investment or purchase are you working toward? All questions to ask this week.
Libra | Libra rising
If you feel like the universe is singing your song this week that's because it is. Happy birthday Libra! The sun lights up your sign from Monday, accompanied by Mercury and your ruling planet Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Buzzing with great ideas? Share them as others are drawn to you right now and ready to listen to your dulcet tones. Admirers can act fast or get in line because you are at your best one to one. The weekend's new moon in your sign is peak manifesting time so plant your seeds of intention for how you want to present yourself. If you've been considering a fresh new look or makeover of some sort, even the smallest thing can make a big difference in your confidence and bring you joy so allow yourself some birthday splurges, lovely Libra.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
This month Libra season lights up your zone of solitude. If you're like most Scorpios you'll breathe a sigh of relief: you'll be getting a cosmic mini-retreat after a recent whirlwind of extracurricular social activity. Tune into and chill in your own energy. Let go of everyday noise with meditation, soft music that soothes your deep soul, and enjoy some dedicated Me time. Cut habits that aren't supporting your health and well-being. Clean up your diet, tweak an exercise plan, or even initiate a wellbeing plan at work. A morning or evening ritual could prove to be just the healing you need. While you're there, write your intentions for this week’s new moon. The themes: balance, beauty, and love.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
You've pushed yourself to block out the finer details in your career and public image over Virgo's finicky season, now the spotlight has shifted into your social zone. The work you've done will translate into setting you up in a new social strata so reach out and build on relationships that truly resonate with you. Connect with friends that share your interests, especially over the next month. You may even want to team up and form some inspiring collabs but you'll have to overcome some issues with sharing your creative offspring. There could also be some confusion about whether to place someone in the romantic or friendship zone. Don't push to make the call, stay open to what is and allow the cards to fall like the autumn leaves. Extra contacts could come at a price. If they're distance related that could translate as travel costs or perhaps you're eager to monetize a project you're cooking up together. Either way, think before you spend.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
Libra season spotlights your favorite zone, the dizzying heights of career, achievement, and public presence. This month you're being noticed. Although you'll want to work hard to please everyone, your stars suggest there's a conflict between your need to represent yourself authentically and what you're asked to stand for career-wise. You're in a long phase of growth so step up to the challenge and decide how you can integrate any conflict. The new moon over the weekend is the perfect time to write up your intentions for peak manifesting. How would you like your career to look, what kind of legacy do you want to leave? What does it feel like and what kind of professional partnerships would you prefer? Home life may be demanding some of the energy reserves you've saved for work hours. How can you set up your domestic or family life so it will support your professional life? If someone needs your attention, it's important you maintain balance.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
Libra season may push you to seek wider pastures in order to feed your voracious intellect. Cozy up on the couch with your favorite author or documentary. If you've been considering higher education or even sharing your thoughts independently on a topic, consider ways to share your knowledge or philosophies. Aquarius is associated with technology -- is it time to set up your own podcast and interview all your favorite people? Plant your intentions for this week’s new moon for what or who you'd like to call in. Partnership, travel, study, or even teaching is a possibility this week. If your immediate environment isn't playing ball or you're feeling like you’re oil on water, reaching out to soneone totally unexpected may be the answer. You're also a "fixed" sign, meaning you tend to get stuck on ideas. Your stars suggest it’s time to update your connections. Shift happens, as the bumper sticker says.
Pisces | Pisces rising
Libra season moves the sun's spotlight from your partnership zone into your private zone of sex and secrets. You'll want to go deep so find a quiet space you can trawl the emotional and psychological back alleys in with someone magnetic or interesting. Bringing balance and objectivity to what you dig up can be healing. Everything hidden tends to show up in this zone, so note what intel you pick up around you. Perhaps a feeling you can't quite put your finger on is hovering, so trust your gut. Dig deeper if something makes your ears prick up, it's OK to ask questions. Set your intentions on this week's new moon by calling in the resources you need and receiving intimacy as you'd like it. Don't hold back on the details and do dial in the answers to any unsolved mysteries that have been eluding you.
