Raise your glasses, cosmic babes! It’s Libra season, which falls annually between Sept. 22 and Oct. 23. With the genial air sign representing all things lavish and lovely, the stars are giving our social lives a makeover.
“Libra’s general vibe is one of beauty, peace, and prosperity,” astrologer Erin River Sunday tells Bustle. “Libra energy really just wants everyone to get along and enjoy the sweetness of life.”
Make the most of Libra season by channeling this sign’s positive vibes. Here’s how:
DO: Fill Your Calendar With Social Events
Libra is the zodiac’s socialite, so expect (or make) an abundance of plans. This is the best time to pencil in coffee dates with new friends or host a dinner party for your nearest and dearest.
DON’T: Forget Your Alone Time
There’s beauty in spending quality time with yourself, too. Indulge in a perfectly lazy night at home, or take yourself out on a date. Represented by the scales, Libra’s all about balance.
DO: Take The Lead
As a cardinal sign, it’s natural for Libra to step forward first. Spearhead a project at work or initiate an important conversation with your partner. And since Libra is associated with beauty and art, this is prime time to experiment with your aesthetic. Ready to set some trends?
DON’T: Bend Too Quickly
Libra rules all kinds of partnerships: romantic, platonic, and beyond. This air sign’s tendency to compromise can be a strength, but it can also lead to dissatisfaction. Restore balance in your relationships by sticking to firm boundaries.
DO: Indulge In Pleasure
This Venus-ruled sign is known for enjoying the finer things in life, so even the most practical among us should channel that spirit. Order the steak, take a leisurely shower with all your favorite products, or watch your comfort movie in something cozy.
DON’T: Insert Yourself In Every Conflict
Libra is all about balance. However, it’s not always necessary to fight every battle. Maintain your peace by giving yourself (and others) room to breathe. Let the chips fall where they may.
DO: Keep A Level Head
Libra is represented by the scales of justice for a reason, but keep a moderate approach to problem-solving. That’s especially the case around the Libra new moon solar eclipse on Oct. 14, which will bring tension to its fullest. “[The solar eclipse] is likely to be an intense time for relationships that will ask us to release what’s no longer working,” Sunday says.
