If there is one sign in the Zodiac that leaves the impression of needing harmony and diplomacy, it is Venus ruled Libra.
Libra does not want or need arguments, battles or unnecessary upset. This one sign tends to want to negotiate rather than argue. Libra prefers peace and harmony and because of this they often find themselves uncomfortable in today’s society where the battle of wits is often the theme.
Anyone with Libra sun or moon needs a partner and because of this you seldom find a Libra alone.
Libra makes a good moderator and can often be found in careers involving law, healing or perhaps ministry. Since this Venus-ruled sign enjoys harmony and peace, you seldom find a Libra involved in domestic battles. Of course, there is always an exception to the rule, but Libra is usually not a fighter.

New moon in Libra happens on Friday, Oct. 4, and then on Friday, Oct. 18, there will be an eclipse in Aries during the October full moon. The eclipse will occur just three days before Mercury goes retrograde. Obviously, we are looking at some exciting changes. An eclipse always brings about some new adventure. So get ready; since it will be in Aries it will involve action of some kind.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) It is time to avoid being stubborn in your desire to get things done. Relax and let others do the same. After all, you have been carrying more than your share for some time. The change you need to make is to let others take over some of the workload. If you do, you will feel better.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you can line up exactly what you feel is your responsibility in your relationships, life will take on a new and healthy glow. You tend to take on more than necessary in your attempt to be loved. The time has come to back off and love yourself and then others. Not the other way around.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) There is plenty of good energy coming your way. With that fact in mind, decide what it is you would really like to have in your life. If you want a fast relationship then get out there this week and keep your eyes open. It is time to put some charm in your life and this is the time to get exactly what you want.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The silver lining you are always looking and wishing for is right in front of you now. This is no time to ignore your needs. It is time to get up and go after what you want and not ignore your needs any longer. An old friend could be part of the action. So call your pal and then make your moves.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) It is time to lift the fog you may have been walking around in and clear your head with a new and stimulating plan. Don’t let the confusion of past relationships mar your future. That would be a waste of time for you and a new BFF. Try shooting for the stars and get exactly what it is you want.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Any signs of temperament should be quickly ignored because that type of behavior will not bring you what you want. It should be business as usual and no looking back. That type of behavior is for the untrained and only brings failure. You are looking at big success this week.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) There may have been a few disappointments recently but, if you just watch yourself, it will not happen again. You are headed in a new direction that will put you in the role you would like to be in very soon. So watch what you have to say and act confident.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) You are beginning to see the writing on the wall, so think about making a move or two before much more time passes. After all, you are smarter than most people that surround you. That means you should be the winner if you just plan your action early. Don’t take advice – give it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) When you ease up on yourself and listen to some of the advice coming your way, there will be no stopping your future success. But making excuses for not taking action is not your style. You are getting plenty of guidance, so stop long enough to listen to it. That should be your goal.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) The success you are seeking is all around you. All you need to do is stop long enough in your quest and listen. Once you are able to do that there will be no stopping you. Your future is up to you. So reorganize and realize that if this is what you really want, then go for it.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) A new routine has entered your life and you should be enjoying the new pace of things. Letting go is a challenge, but once it starts it gets easier and more rewarding. A new BFF could come into your life also and really rattle your cage. You will love the new ventures.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) The more adventures you allow into your life the happier you will be as Neptune forces you to expand your horizons. You are starting to look beyond your old limits and let yourself venture into new relationships. That is a good goal for you as you move forward spiritually.
