We’re kicking off Libra season with the Autumn Equinox! After an intense summer full of retrogrades and endings, the Autumn Equinox is bringing about new beginnings. This much needed reset will give you a chance to apply the things you've learned from the summer of retrogrades into your everyday life. With your new-found clarity you’ll be able to tackle anything in your path, which is fantastic since Mars is in Libra until October 12th.
With Mars, a fiery planet that believes in passionate action, in Libra, a sign that seeks balance and harmony, the motivation from Mars is slowed as you weigh all of your options. Instead of focusing on choices that will only benefit you, this placement makes you consider the effects of everyone around you based on your choices. As you use this time wisely, we’ve got you covered with a collection of star sign inspired wines. Check them out below, along with our new Libra Season playlist on Spotify, where you’ll find a stellar collection of tunes to keep you boppin’ all month long.
As the Sun shines in your seventh house of partnership, look to combine strengths with others instead of constantly competing against them. This will have the added benefit of freeing up some time to spend with those closest to you. While Mars, your ruling planet, is in Libra you’ll feel extremely motivated to do everything, but that comes with a double edged sword of extra stress. So in between drinks with friends and fruitful team meetings, make sure you’re not spreading yourself too thin.

Even though the Sun is no longer in your sign, you’re still feeling its grounding energy. As you hit the ground running, you’re ready to put your birthday wishes into action. And with the added bonus of Mars in Libra, you’re feeling inspired to accomplish anything. The only drawback is that impulsive Mars is encouraging you to spend money on a whim. If you need help to curb those urges, make a list of wants versus needs to suss out what’s actually important to you.
