Just because dinner parties and other types of social events are fun doesn't mean that they don't require planning and organization. As a matter of fact, the more prepared you are, the more you can relax once things get started. An upcoming event might not be happening for days or weeks; but today, if you have some spare time, you should use it for some advance planning or shopping. Consider who will be a part of the festivities and try to come up with some personalized touches.
LibraSep 23 – Oct 22
Be careful in your relationships as the week begins. Monday will present you with some interesting choices (in work and possibly romance, too) and you'll need to work hard to strike a balance between selfishness and selflessness. From Monday evening and on through Wednesday, your famous grace and diplomacy will take center stage. Expect admiration and applause – but expect for your skills at arbitration and alliance-building to be called on, too. On Thursday and Friday, don't go it alone. Find people to share your thoughts with – especially if that involves taking a risk or trying something new. This weekend, keep your head down and stick to the program.
September is a wise teacher. Caution and moderation are the lessons when Saturn goes direct on September 6, and you might have to slow down your pace to pay attention to the details. Taking more time to finish things is preferred over rushing and missing something important.
Venus enters intense Scorpio on the ninth, at which point you won’t be satisfied with the trivial. You’re searching for a deep and real connection with others, but at the same time you have a hard time putting your faith in them blindly. You might have to keep your guard up until new people prove that you can trust them.
If you’re feeling scattered around September 13, you can blame it on the confusing opposition between Mercury and Neptune retrograde. Distractions prevent you from giving things your full attention, so don’t make any final decisions midmonth.
Chatty Mercury moves into your sign on the twenty-first, putting you in an excellent position to talk your way into (or out of) anything. Your negotiating skills are on point, Libra, so use them to get something you really want.
You’re feeling strong and courageous during the sun-Mars trine on September 27, which is the perfect way to end the month. Once you get the ball rolling on key projects, you should be able to rely on others to pick it up and run with it.
