I hope everyone is doing great after the nerve-racking Mercury Retrograde! This week we are entering the Libra season where peace, love, and compromise become our main priority, despite the hardship that may occur. This is a great time to reconcile with those who we have hurt or who disagreed with us and to kickstart our postponed plan and responsibilities. Well, sounds like a good week for me!
Just a recap of what happened last week, the Sun entered Libra on the 23rd followed with Venus shifting to Scorpio on the 24th of September (my birthday! Ha!). All of the miscommunications and arguments which started during Mercury Retrograde will be enlightened. This is when you realize that the bond is thicker than bicker so it would be important for you to sit down and talk to get to the bottom of your arguments. Maybe the root of your disagreements is mere miscommunication. It could be, right?
With Pluto turns direct this week, the truth will slowly resurface for both of you. Couples who broke up during retrograde season may get back together with a lot of make-up sex (wink wink) because Venus in Scorpio brings back the intense desire within. But on the downside, you’ll love so intensely, that if there’s any arguments between you, it would be pretty intense too. Oh and one more thing, be careful with obsession and jealousy masked as love.
This week will also begin with new responsibilities to kickstart as the retrograde period is finally over. When Pluto and Mercury turned retrograde, instead of moving forward, we were forced to get our priorities straight. The blocks and the obstacles were there to keep you from initiating any actions since what you needed to do was to sit, plan, and contemplate about your next step. Now, since the block has been lifted, it’s time to sprint as fast as you can to the finish line. Mercury has turned direct on the 22nd with Pluto following its step this Tuesday, which marks a new beginning for your productivity and professional life. With Mars moving towards Capricorn, the House of Career, on Wednesday, it’ll be a waste not to use this energy to catch up with your postponed works. Mars in Capricorn turns our ambition into fruition. We’ll be more focused in our professional goal and values hard work more than any other Mars transit.
After a few-week period of unproductivity, this week is the perfect time to start working on your responsibilities. Seek for amendments with your friends and loved ones and start working on the projects that have been left in the dust. They say ignorance is a virtue, but I’ll say this week it’s better to gather as much information as you can so you can prep up for another tough chapter in your life. This week is going to be like a first day of work after calling sick for a few weeks (my personal experience lol), but with a new, shiny, leather bag on your hands as a make-up present from your boyfriend. Stay slayin!
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Ace of Wands
This is your moment, Libra. You’ve lost a grip of your reality earlier, and now it’s time to get back on track. Mercury Retrograde season felt like winter for you, where everything seems to be put on hold for you to rest and recover. So embrace this summer season with a lot of energy and optimism. But remember not to push yourself too far. This week is all about balancing yourself to integrate to the sunny Monday. Take it easy, don’t rush into things, and make sure you still have enough sleep on weekdays. Try a sip of chamomile tea with ginger as your natural relaxant or follow these tips to balance your routine.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
If we can’t control our surroundings, we can try to control our internal feelings. You may not feel like socializing or letting small talks ruin your concentration, but this is not how you should start your week. Get your usual pick-me-up routine going and surround yourself with friends who care about you. The situation will only drown you if you choose to be drowned yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Ten of Swords (Ruin)
Good luck on your future plans, Sagittarius! The card told me that you’re excited for some seriously good endeavors and you’ve aimed to focus on that opportunity. Don’t worry too much about what’s going to happen in the future, though. Focus your energy on the now because today marks your first milestone. Sometimes things that are too good to be true can be a dream come true too!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Nothing feels warmer in your heart than an act of altruism. Some people would ask you why you do this/that, but if you do feel like you need to give back your blessings to the community, by all means, do it. Also, when your intuition tells you to get closer or to avoid certain people, trust your instinct. Your gut is getting stronger this week so follow it as much as you can.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Dear Aquarius, please take it easy on the self-loathing. When things are not sailing smoothly, remember that not everything is on you. If you can’t cope with any problems you’re experiencing right now, remember that help is right on your fingertips if you’re willing to call the right person. Look around, see the smile of your loved ones. You don’t have to deal with everything by yourself, okay?
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Feeling lost much? That’s because your mind hasn’t really rest since a few weeks ago when you forced yourself to think/work harder than usual. If you can’t take a rest because you have demanding job/school life, see if you can take a vitamin to amp up your focus. Careful, Pisces, not enough rest and too much stress can take a great toll on your performance.
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Nine of Cups (Happiness)
Trust issue in your relationship isn’t something that you’d like to talk about, especially when you know that it’s completely unimportant and illogical. But if you’re really curious about whether there’s something that has happened behind closed doors, ask them directly. Don’t forget to stay calm and composed. Ask nicely and they’ll open up to you about what happened.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Nobody is in charge of your future other than yourself, Taurus. So if you choose to stop driving and slack around, you won’t be able to get to your destination on time. Remember law of attraction? Think about what you wish so hard, it’ll come true. But wishing itself wouldn’t work if you don’t have the courage/belief to work on it. So go ahead and grab your prize before someone else will.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Queen of Wands
Feeling like you constantly need to look over your shoulder? Yup, you got to be more careful this week, Gemini, because your instinct is prepping up for self-preservation mode. Be careful with being too open with someone you just know, or someone that you can’t trust. Not everyone is good with secrets, so always be ready to keep things to yourself if you can.
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Eight of Wands (Swiftness)
We can’t go back to the past no matter how hard we wish for it. So why not live in the present, Cancer? I understand, the recent turmoil is pretty f- up, but it doesn’t mean you can’t pick up the pieces and start afresh. This week, always get your plan B prepped up. With unexpected things popping up, you’ll want to minimize as much damage to yourself as possible.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Five of Wands (Strife)
Don’t play with fire if you don’t want to get burned, dearest Leo. The card tells me that you’re curious to see how far your loved ones would do things for you, but it also tells me that it’s not a really good idea. No one wants their button pushed, and you should understand that. If there’s any insecurities in your relationship, talk openly and be honest with them. Play it fair!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Ten of Cups (Satiety)
Life can be a mystery sometimes, but nevertheless, exciting. This week you’ll get to find what life means for you as you’re approaching a pretty big intersection. So many life changing choices, but so little time! Whichever path you choose, don’t forget to include your family in it. Tell them about what makes you comfortable and happy, and ask for their earnest blessings.
