September Horoscope for Libra

 (September 23rd - October 22nd)


Your purpose is to use your truth, power and experiences to make a difference in the lives you love or on a grander scale. This is a good time to embrace your calling and get your feet wet. Add your voice to an issue you believe in. The satisfaction you’ve been seeking in luxury and comfort will come without effort when you use your voice for a greater good.


Libras are meant to beautify the world with their exquisite taste, eye for art, fashion and excellence. They prefer others who are exceptional, partially because it keeps them honed and alert, but more so because they know it’s the only way to uplift their consciousness. They are a soul in search of a greater truth. To take who you are to the next level requires clarity. Do you know what your goals and values are; what you stand for? If you’re confused then your decisions have probably been random. They meet the moment’s needs, but not the greater vision. Your choices have power. Every decision you make supports a belief or a lack of one. When you can back your goals with action, you move forward. Those choices define your purpose and your purpose motivates you to act.  Mothers are a great example of this; if they want their child to learn values and good behavior, they need to protect and correct their behavior so they can learn important life lessons. In the larger arena, Libras are the general that lies between it’s troops and the war, the celebrity that uses fame to bring light to injustice, changing the balance through the stand they take. Courage is required to use the sword of justice to right the wrongs of the world. To do so means letting go of pleasing others and finding your point of truth. Once you have it, once it speaks to your soul, then you have your purpose and the path you were born to follow.

With the Full Moon in your 12th and 6th house this month, you will be asked to take a position you’re not familiar with. You will need to follow what inspires you more than the facts. A soul ruled by Venus is connected to the heart and that’s their leader. Yes, Venus rules both money and love  -- and this is not a conflict – they can work together. What we love and value is where we put our money. This month it’s not about finances; it’s about service, purpose, work and the unknown. A Libra without a position is a Libra that is caught serving the values of someone else. Without clarity you’re disempowered.

Cancer rules your 10th house of career. This is a creative time for you. The Neptune Moon conjunction is in trine to your house of goals. Open yourself up to new ideas, even if you’re afraid they will cause others a problem. Don’t stop yourself from learning and growing, your mission is to serve what you believe in. When you don’t, you risk shutting down and just using your strength for support and not for your own purpose. The Moon Neptune conjunction creates uncertainty and it’s important to just go with the flow. You’re being repositioned and you’ll know when to drop your anchor when the Sun comes out and things become clear. Balance, the key to Libra, is not static. Remember, your intuition is your guide in a fog. You have to learn to cope with change; you live with it all the time. This month things will happen quickly. Don’t hesitate to go where you’ve never been. Use new people for old problems, or just open yourself up to ideas that add something original to old concepts. Always remember your mission is not just to win, but to keep the balance.

Uranus has been in your 7th house of relationships for the last six years. If you’re in a committed one, then perhaps your partner has been going through some changes, becoming more their own person and certainly more independent. The opposition to Jupiter will bring that to light. Jupiter is still transiting your sign, so it’s given you the confidence and strength to do what’s right for you. The trine from Uranus to Mercury and Mars will only enlighten you further and help you pull the pieces of the last few years together so they make sense.  If you’re single, you may meet a lot of people, but making a deep connection is not on the schedule – unless of course your chart says differently. Venus is a bit isolated during the month so your focus should be on you and what you’re looking for. Do you know what turns you on and off? Do you know the values you want your partner to have? It’s important to know what you’re looking for or you’ll be distracted by “shinny objects:” beauty, wealth, excessive charm. Remember, the fancier the lure the more you need to know what lies below the surface.

Your biggest challenge this September comes from Saturn. It’s making a square to the Sun, Moon and Neptune. Your communication skills will be on display. If they’re not good, then you’ll know why you need them. If you’re stuck on your judgments and refuse to listen to others, then you’ll be left out. Compromise, or a balance of opposites is the most difficult resolution, but the only one that works. However, compromise requires you to have what’s really important – clarity of goals.  If you don’t know what’s important, you won’t know what to let go of.  Remind yourself that silence doesn’t keep the peace. Create a storm with your truth and you’ll get the calm that comes later. If you hate confrontations you’ll live in tension – which is worse?

With Pluto in your 4th house of the home and in trine to the Sun, you may want to redo some of the plumbing in your house. If you do, it will be voluntary and not because a pipe broke. This is also the time to pay attention to the basement and possibly turn it into a family room, a laundry room or even a man cave.  It’s a great time to improve a house and add to its value. Pluto is in charge of what’s hidden and so any problems you have will be behind walls or buried. 

All in all in you’re moving toward resolving your relationship issues. Hopefully you’ve learned something profound about yourself along the way. Hopefully, you’ve learned that speaking up at the right time is better than burying your feelings over and over again. It’s the only way to create something that lasts.
