Libra Season Is Here, So Prepare To Feel All. The. Feels.
By WH Staff | Sep 24, 2019
You guys, summer is officially on the horizon. Cue the takeover of crunchy beach hair (and inappropriate tan lines, natch). But ICYDK, as the physical seasons change, another season’s coming to influence your mood: Libra season.
It’s happening from September 23 through October 22. And, just in case you’re not super familiar with astrological seasons, Libra season is one of the 12 seasons that happen every year—each of which has a different impact on your zodiac sign.
Just a heads up: Libra season’s a bit of a doozy. It’s going to give you some serious Thoughts and Feelings™ about the fairness (or lack thereof) in the world, with a solid dash of touchy-feeliness thrown into the mix. Sounds intense, but don’t worry—Donna Page, a certified astrologer, is here to break it all down for ya.
What does Libra season mean for your sign?
Libra is an air sign, which means it’s big on thinking.
Libras, in particular, want everything to be fair (not super surprising, since their zodiac sign is literally based on the Scales of Justice). And the same goes for Libra season, Page says.
You may find yourself getting more than a little ticked off when things don’t seem balanced at work (um, why are you stuck on a crappy project again?) or when you think people are being unnecessarily cruel. After all, if you can’t say something nice…
At the same time, you’ll crave peace and harmony in your life. That fight that’s been brewing with your S.O. for days? Suddenly, you just don’t want to go there.
This particular Libra season has a strong emphasis from the moon, Venus, and Mercury, a.k.a. the planets that can determine your happiness, Page says. Expect to have a solid think on your emotional needs and whether they’re actually being met by your friends, family, and love interests.
One important Q to ask yourself during this time: Do the important people in your life make you feel like they truly get you, or is something missing?
On the flip side, Page says you’re about to become pretty awesome at seeing other people’s POV. That’ll come in handy as you try to be more understanding of little slip-ups, like why your BFF didn’t answer your text again. Overall, you’re really just going to want everyone to be nice and get along. Is that too much to ask?
How will Libra season affect the rest of your year?
Libra season is going to introduce a little extra empathy in your life and, tbh, that’s nothing but good news for your relationships. Seeing things from other people’s point of view can help cut down on fights, insecurity, and anxiety about WTH is actually going on. With all that freed up mental energy, you can then focus on crossing a ton of productive things off your to-do list (you know how long that monster is).
While you’re having all these #deep thoughts, take stock of your relationships, figure out where your needs are—and aren’t—getting met, and actually do something about it. Those concrete actions can help you be healthier and happier down the road.
Also, if Libra season sparks some social-justice ambition in you, don’t be afraid to call out BS injustices in the world as a way to incite change, mkay? You might be surprised by how much one person can make a difference.
When’s the next zodiac season?
Next up is Scorpio season, which starts on October 23. During Scorpio season, you’ll tap into the deeper side of your emotions and try to find the hidden meaning in life. You know, easy-peasy stuff.
But for now, do your best to bring a little more harmony and happiness into the world. You’ve got this.
