Libra is an air sign, which means you are intelligent and social. The influence of Venus puts emphasis on beauty, love and attraction. You are naturally drawn to aesthetically pleasing things. Whether it is whom you are with, what you are driving, or what you are wearing, beauty is of the utmost importance to you. You make it a point to be surrounded by beautiful things as much as possible. Make sure you foster this need by going to movies, museums, art shows, or food festivals. You are most at ease with yourself when you are comfortable with your surroundings.
Your love of beauty is so profound that your dislike of hatred is just as strong. You absolutely detest discrimination of any kind. This is one of the few topics that will turn your mood instantly dark. You have no patience for it and expect everyone to have the same passion against it. Try to remind yourself that sometimes things are not so cut and dry. There is a difference between ignorance and deliberate discrimination. Also, others may feel the same as you, but aren’t as comfortable expressing themselves in the same ways as you might. You will come across a situation soon that has to do with this issue. Remember to consider what the best way is to get your point across. Sometimes the more direct approach will only garner a defensive reaction.Keep in mind that the ultimate goal is to learn from our mistakes and we only learn when are minds are open, not closed off.
Librans can be seen as lazy because they dislike dirty work or manual labor. Sometimes this can be construed as trying to take the easy way out. You simply know what you like and dislike. Just like anything else you may dislike, you stay away from it. When choosing your career, avoid anything that would involve intense manual labor. You are very good at weighing the pros and cons of any given situation so perhaps a career in the law would suit you. You are also very practical and good at business. Perhaps you can become a successful businessman or politician. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. It is our responsibility to find out what works best for us. If you are in a career that suits you, this month will be more of the same. Nothing too exciting will be happening, yet nothing bad will occur either. Watch for boredom towards the end of the month. Keep things exciting by organizing a work party or liven things up a bit by encouraging a friendly prank. It will help break up the monotony of the workday.
Your preferences for aesthetically beautiful things can sometimes make you come across as picky or stuck up in your personal life. Again, this is an example of your inherent ability to know what you want. You do, however, tend to judge everything on first outward appearances. By doing so, you limit yourself and the possibilities of many great things. You need to keep an open mind and open heart. Give people the chance to show you their inner beauty. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you discover. A whole other realm of beauty will open itself up to you by you truly exploring the inner workings of the people you get to know. Not only will you discover wonderful things about them, but about yourself as well.
Traveling is a top priority for you this month. You crave the beauty that new places can bring. You may want to consider taking some trips by yourself. You have been reflective lately and when that happens, you prefer to be alone. If you have the time, take a scenic road trip. You will have plenty of time to reflect and the scenery will be calming. Any larger trips that you may be considering may take you out of the country. You are due for a big expedition soon. Now is a great time to start planning.
The few small risks that you took earlier in the year are going to pay off for you soon financially. You may be feeling a little unsettled about how things have been going, but don’t fret. Even if things start to get a little unbalanced or unorganized, things won’t ever get too bad. You may, however, need to start doing some restructuring or reconsidering of your usual spending habits. More precisely, you should be paying attention to your spending habits. You tend to just work and spend as if the two things are totally unrelated. You work hard and you spend hard. It will be extremely beneficial to you to start balancing your checkbook and really getting an understanding of what is going in and out. You have always considered this as busy work (and we know you don’t like to do that), but this is one exception that you should make.
Your reflective mood this month will be at its peak on Mondays. Perhaps it will be partly a result of the Monday blues or coming down from an exciting weekend, but Mondays will find you unusually quite and introverted. Be sure that those who care about you know that you are well. This change in your typical demeanor will worry some of your more perceptive loved ones. Consider wearing your colors on Monday to help offset your sullen mood. On the other hand, Fridays will bring you more energy and stamina. It will seem like you are Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with how different you act from Monday to Friday. You will be re-energized from the moment you wake up to the second you fall asleep. You will be productive at work and friendlier than normal.
Overall, this month will reflect your love of beautiful things and hopefully start to broaden your horizons. You will have an emotionally charged month, but most of it will be positive. There will be lots of reflection done about your life and how you live it and you will come out feeling optimistic about the rest of the year.
