Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)
Sometimes I think it’s a shame that your symbol is the scales. Many of you think that you either have to always be balanced (wrong!) or that you have to work extra hard to keep things in balance, especially when a scale tips in your favor. The scales are in your favor this week, Libra, but you might feel guilty about that. Perhaps you’re feeling this way as Uranus retrogrades in Aries, your opposite sign. You may judge yourself too harshly as selfish for the attention you’ve been giving yourself or your career. So you might be tempted to be a self-saboteur. Stop now. You don’t have to tip the scales against yourself to restore some primitive notion of fairness or justice. Your life is far bigger than just you. The Cosmos can be a quiet partner, if you let it, to balance things out on their own. You don’t have to hobble yourself for looking out for yourself now.
