It’s Libra Season y'all. Libra is the seventh sign in the zodiac. This air sign is here to bring balance, peace and tranquility. Libras enjoy all things of beauty and all things romance. Virgo Season helped us with self-improvement and growth. Now it's time for things to come to balance. The Scales will help you with that! The sign of Libra is ruled by the planet Venus which represents romance, aesthetics, and pleasure.
This time of year brings me so much to be grateful for. It’s a time of reflection for me. It's the time of my birth month and also the time when I remember how The Universe connected me to my husband. I met Joe on October 10, 1994 (According to my journal hahaha) just days before our shared birthday. We decided that day at 12 & 14 that we should be a couple. We dated (I mean as much as children can hahaha) for 2 years. We both brought some self worth issues into our relationship from our respective upbringings. Joe was the only boy and ultimately man I ever dated who was respectful, authentic, and who really loved me for me. We have experienced many, many ups and downs in the 28 years we have known each other. To read more about that, click here. And as I have shared in other blog posts and on my socials, this is historically a tough time of year for me. Joe has always been my True North. He has this ability to make me laugh and smile even in my absolute darkest days - of which there have been many.
Two Libras in a relationship does have its benefits. But it also has its challenges! I am a Libra with a Gemini Moon and Libra Rising (EEK). Joe is Libra with a Virgo Moon and Aquarius Rising. (All those who know Astrology just let out an audible “UGHHH” while reading those combos). We actually couldn't be more opposite. Politically and in personality we are on almost opposite ends of those spectrums. Although as we get older we are finding more commonality on both fronts I believe. Emotionally, we express ourselves completely differently. So much more goes into personality than just the Sun Sign. That being said, this is a time for gratitude and reflection for us both.
Libra season is a time that we naturally reflect on romantic and family relationships and friendships. Libras will especially feel this reminiscent effect. Generally speaking, even though Libra Season will affect each sign differently, Libras will especially feel its effects. Libras love to be in love. We are in love with the idea of love. This sweater season is the perfect time to cuddle up with a lover. However, I'd like to invite you all to learn to love yourselves this season. I am working on this myself. For me that looks like warm cups of tea, my favorite homemade foods, and watching my comfort movies and shows(Ya know the ones you know all the words too?). It means getting back to rituals, spell work and celebrating the moon cycles. All of which have been intermittent over the last couple years. It means manifesting and stepping back into my power. Self love may look different for you. Comment on this post or drop me a line on my socials and let me know what that looks like for you. Happy Libra Season!!
