Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)

In our culture, we put a lot of emphasis on the face—not just in commercials and ads, but in language too: “Face up,” “Get out of my face,” “Come out your face” or “face to face,” for example. This week definitely puts a lot of attention on your face, and it could be a good thing, like anything astrological, if you’re ready to “face” things. (I couldn’t resist.) The astro reason why is because of all this Aries energy we’re swarming through, and Aries rules the head astrologically. (Every sign rules a body part. Your sign rules the kidneys…and the butt. We’re not going there now though, ok?) Anyway, on Sunday, Mars, your patron planet Venus and the Sun team up in Aries for the first time in 32 years.  This definitely augurs a transformative time for your desires to be sharper, clearer and more direct, especially related to relationships and dealing with people.
