August 2017 Horoscopes: Libra
SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22
You’ve had Jupiter in your sign squaring off with power-player Pluto in Capricorn since last fall, so what happens on the 4th isn’t exactly a surprise. It is, however, a big emotional relief that helps you feel like the foundations of your life are just a little more stable than before. Thanks to the Aquarius lunar eclipse just a few days later, you learn how to have fun again and you do so with great aplomb. Mercury retrograde from the 12th isn’t so much a frustration as it is an opportunity to let the spiritual lessons of the last year really sink in.
On the 21st, the massive Leo solar eclipse shines brightly in the area of your horoscope associated with long-term vision. It’s a brand-new start, and one that gets you closer to a closely held dream. Friends and mentors pop out of the woodwork to help you along the way. Venus (your ruling planet) joins the Leo party on the 26th, giving the rest of the month a charmed feel. Mercury retrograde into Leo on the 31st helps you review areas of the new plan that need strengthening. Your best day this month? Jupiter in Libra in sync with Saturn in your communication zone lends divine inspiration on the 27th.
