Libra [Sept 22nd to October 21st]
#MeTime: Despite the fact that this week will bring a Uranus & Mercury retrograde and a square off between Sun and Saturn, this can be a good week for you overall. It’s the kind of week where you give it your all and then you can rest with a sense of satisfaction at the end of it. If you muddle through the top of the week without a lot of gusto, however, you might find the end of the week more frustrating and even lonely. Giving all of yourself never leaves you lonely. That’s reserved for when you give your mediocrity or when you give what’s not in you to give.
#Heartstrings: You may feel the reverse of what you felt earlier in the year. Earlier, I talked about how you felt less compelled to be considerate and act more in your own interests. Now, you may feel the need to hang on to manners and consideration as crutches, as if you can’t trust standing on your own two feet for fear of offense. This could complicate your life more, leaving either some to correctly perceive you’re hiding your true feelings behind manners or others to feel deceived once your real feelings are known. If anyone can find the fine art of being clear yet considerate, it’s you. Work a little harder for that, for the sake of all involved, especially you.
#MoneyMoves: Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” was all the rage in the late 80s and early 90s for corporate types who seemed to enjoy joking about the parallels between mergers and handing out pink slips with war and death. Unfortunately, they seem to have missed this key part of the book at the beginning, “Anyone who excels in defeating his enemies triumphs before his enemy’s threat become real.” Basically, preventing destruction and ruin is the real “art of war.” You’re not always excited, Libra, about the choice to be proactive if you don’t see the need to be. Well, you may not see it, but perhaps you sense there’s some underlying tension with someone related to your work that needs addressing. Maybe you’re holding the tension or they are. Regardless, find a creative and tactful way to address it, if it’s there. If not, things could get explosive as early as next week.
