This week the Sun moving in Libra and the Fall Equinox strikes a harmonious balance between light and dark. This may be easier said than done, however. Both Mercury and Venus square up to serious Saturn, creating communication difficulties and a heavy sense of duty especially when it comes to our relationships and if you’re a cardinal sign – Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Mercury also squares up to Pluto, so many of us will find others calling the shots in our lives. We also have a New Moon in Libra which shifts our attention to relationship issues with business associates,  sweetheart and  friends. Cooperation is vital to a harmonious life especially if you’re an air sign – Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

Consider the bonds that you have with others. Are the connections ideal? Compromise is at the heart of peaceful coexistence. Evaluate whether you’re getting a fair shake when dealing with others. Are you being fair and reasonable as well? This may be time to address these kinds of questions. Respect, love and trust are generally earned, so ponder how to develop these qualities within relationships. Address balance issues if you’re involved in an unequal association. You may want to peruse a couple of books for some ideas on how to proceed.

Try to surround yourself with objects pleasing to the eye. Beautify your life with colors that calm. In doing so, you create an environment  conducive to pleasant interactions.

Think of ways to be more open to divergent views. You can’t easily change others, but you can change your behavior.



Either your partner is dictating your work situation, or your work is limiting your love life. Either way, this is a difficult problem to overcome. Think laterally. Could you work from home for part of the week, perhaps?




Underlying fears and worries are causing unnecessary mental stress. It’s easy for someone else to tell you not to worry, of course, but much harder for you to accept the situation yourself. Meditation may bring peace of mind.




A secret or illicit relationship creates drama. You’re taking a walk on the wild side, but it’s packed with risk and it’s not necessarily guaranteed to end well. Be very careful what you wish for around this explosive energy.




In-laws or extended family members may be interfering in your closest relationship. Some of it may be well-intentioned, sure, but it’s still infuriating and it’s driving a wedge between you. Nip this in the bud immediately.




You’re making your working life much harder than necessary, by refusing to compromise. Get with the program, Leo. Change is coming, and the more you fight it, the more miserable you will be. Embrace it. Run with it.




Do not take risks with money, even if you think you can afford to lose it. Gambling is a very, very bad idea – stay off that slippery slope. Get expert advice if you have financial problems and don’t take your eye off the ball.




Personal criticism from a close family member is tough. Words sting, especially from such a source. However, someone really is trying to help you. If you take it less personally, you may even find a nugget of truth in what’s being said.




Trying to keep a secret is an uphill battle. If you do have something you want to keep quiet, stay away from social media and don’t be tempted to trust a close friend with your news. Keeping your own counsel is the sensible way to go.




With friends, try not to borrow or lend money. It almost never ends well and there are tensions on the horizon around this matter. Lend your time, your support or your encouragement, sure, but not your cash.




If you’re not getting the recognition you feel you deserve at work, you may feel resentful. Don’t just seethe in silence. Take action. Do you need a change of direction? Take it, then! Don’t be afraid to make dramatic changes.




Expect to have your beliefs or prejudices challenged, perhaps seriously. Defending your views may make them stronger, or you may even find your mind changing. That’s OK. So long as you are true to your heart, you’ll be fine.




Don’t be tempted to mix friendship with love. Someone you like very much may feel that there’s more to your relationship than there really is – and this way madness lies. Try very hard to be kind about it, but you must be firm
