Your Libra Season Horoscope: Beauty and Balance
From mid-September to mid-October, back-to-school season is in full swing and those hot, sun-filled days of summer are in the rearview mirror. It feels like it’s time to get serious about goal-hitting in the weeks and months ahead, but there’s also a desire to enjoy the changing seasons (think: pumpkin-picking to apple-cider-sipping). This makes for a vibrant, colorful, beauty-conscious season where you may find yourself in various social settings, shopping for functional, fashionable clothes, or socializing at early fall weddings. This is all owned by the balance-seeking, social butterfly air sign, Libra.
When Is Libra Season?
From September 23 to October 23, the sun moves through the cardinal air sign Libra, ruler of the seventh house and the realm of partnerships.
What Are Typical Libra Characteristics and How Do They Affect Libra Season?
Because the air sign is ruled by Venus—which oversees love, art, beauty, our social lives, as well as money and material possessions—Libra season has a romantic, light-hearted, network-savvy, and balance-seeking vibe. This sweet energy fuels our efforts to take our existing routines (a foundation set up by perfection-seeking Virgo) and make them flow a bit better. That means achieving that ever-elusive work-life balance all while maintaining an active social life.
Libras are known for their love of art and beauty and their natural charm. They also abhor conflict and are on a continual mission to promote peace, harmony, balance, and justice.
As the cardinal one of the air bunch, Libras have a knack for dreaming up big picture ideas and stepping into leadership roles, especially those in which there’s a need for diplomacy or to “smooth over” rough edges of a first draft or proposal.
Although Libras are big-hearted peacemakers and idealist romantics who have a flair for seeing the world through rose-colored glasses. They might also err toward passive-aggressive behavior in their effort to avoid confrontation of any kind. They might also suffer from indecisiveness and come off as noncommittal or flaky. Finding practices that ground them can make it even easier for them to turn those ambitious plans into something concrete.
Here’s what each sign should focus on this season to make the most of this versatile, social, and transitional season. (Be sure to read your rising sign, too!)

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Working on a passion project with your S.O. or close friend is sure to be your main focus while the sun travels through your seventh house of partnership. Given that your Aries nature lends you to be so independent, this one-on-one time will allow you to hone your ability to compromise and collaborate. Simultaneously, you’ll want intimate time with that special someone to bolster your bond. The key: By remaining open-minded as you trade your brightest ideas back and forth, you’ll get closer—and get inspired.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You might find you can’t help but focus on leveling up your wellness plan while the sun moves through your sixth house of health. You struggle to shrug off routines you’ve enjoyed for some time, preferring to stick to a “tried-and-true” approach. But a burst of confidence makes it more likely you’ll consider exploring uncharted terrain now, Taurus. Check in with friends or trusted mentors about even small changes they think will make a world of difference, and you’ll be on your way.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Talking about your emotions is second nature to a Gemini, so Libra season, and the sun’s trip through your fifth house of romance, fun, and creativity is sure to feel like coming home in a way. Your desire to flirt, connect, and have as much fun as possible during this month dovetails sweetly with your instinct to express what’s in your heart. You’ll do well to find an artistic outlet that speaks to you now, as it can be the perfect way to work through any nervous energy and to share how you feel with someone special.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As the sun moves through your fourth house of family life, you’ll want to bump up your sense of security and make your home even more of a tranquil sanctuary. Spending free time with loved ones is always a priority for you, but it might be even more so now. At the same time, you’ll do well to step up your self-care routine Cancer (think more baths), which can leave you feeling more centered and contribute to your overall wellness.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Thanks to the sun’s trip through Leo’s third house of communication, your desire to connect with people from all areas of your life is amplified. From planned or impromptu brainstorms with colleagues to witty texting banter with your S.O., you’ll feel like you’re firing on all cylinders when it comes to sharing vibrant ideas. All this intellectually stimulating activity might feel a bit frenetic at times, so making room for time-outs to focus on your wellness routine is wise.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
During Libra season, the sun moves through Virgo’s second house of income, inspiring you to take your dream to the next level. If you’ve been wanting to pitch a major proposal, apply for a new side hustle, or throw your hat in the ring for a promotion, now’s the time to map out your game plan. The hard work you put in can lead to rewards, but make sure you take a step back to ensure that you’re getting back enough to warrant what you’re putting in. After all, you often can’t help but put in 110 percent and then some.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
While the sun moves through your sign and first house of self, it’s your annual time to shine—and light up all the rooms in all the parties you want to host or attend! You’ll also do well to take a look back at any notes or meditations and intentions you’ve set from mid-August to mid-September. You can trust your intuition to inform your wildest dreams and most ambitious goals. From there, creating a step-by-step action plan that feels as exciting as it does achievable can propel you toward your next, winning chapter.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Taking a time-out from the usual grind to make room for intense meditation and self-reflection might feel exactly right while the sun moves through your twelfth house of spirituality during Libra season. Even if you just need more sleep than usual, or time spent close to home, focusing on your favorite creative outlet can benefit your mind and body. You’re in a hibernation phase Scorpio, which might feel less than thrilling in the moment, but take heart: The self-work you do now can ultimately give way to a period of incredible recognition and growth.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
While the sun moves through your eleventh house of networking and friendship, you’ll want to lean into your natural ability to entertain and bump up the joy factor for everyone. Spending time working out at group fitness classes or collaborating on team projects can feel especially satisfying and productive now, Sagittarius. You might also be inspired to find new communities and connections to bond with. Feeling like you’re part of something bigger and communal can be restorative for your heart and mind.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Libra season, and the sun’s trip through Capricorn’s tenth house of career is welcome news to your taskmaster ears. Now is a moment for higher-ups to commend all your dedicated work. Whether you’ve been wanting to step in front of your company and give an impression-making presentation or make a play for advancement, you’ll have the green light to do so—and make it a success. Showcase your ability to be diplomatic and excel at teamwork, and you’ll be rewarded for your efforts.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Being an Aquarius, you’re never afraid to shake things up to get yourself out of a rut, so you’ll welcome the sun’s trip through your ninth house of adventure and higher learning. Taking a class—even if it’s a different discipline of yoga—or planning a long-distance trip is sure to make for an adrenaline rush in the best possible way. You’re ready to see new sights, learn, and soak up tons of new knowledge. The more you can give into these urges, the more centered you’ll feel. Plus, eye-opening experiences might help you prepare to advance your career in a thrilling new way.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Although you love spending time with friends and finding inspiration in the changing seasons, you might be craving the opportunity to build a sexual and emotional connection while the sun moves through your eighth house of sexual intimacy. It’s an ideal time to explore desires that you might not have fully thought about or embraced. Opening up to your potential S.O. about those desires can not only bring you closer, but lead you to feel like you’re owning your needs. You might be feeling sensitive (even more so than your usual Pisces self), so you’ll do well to give yourself extra time to identify and work through your deepest, most personal emotions now.
