Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)

Just as you were settling into a new relationship with Mars in your sign from last week, this week brings a few other plates for you to keep spinning on poles, namely Venus and Uranus. Venus, of course, should garner the most interest for you, as that’s your sign’s planetary patron. She starts retrograding for about six weeks in Capricorn this week. Her retrograde signals that you may be out of step with folks around you and you may feel pressed to retreat from folks. There’s also another possible manifestation: surfacing the anguish and challenge of long lost desires and possibly even exhuming old flames or lovers.  You have a choice in the matter—you don’t have to get caught up in the drama. But you should catch the lesson on what you’re feeling that’s been buried.
