The scales of justice are the symbols of Libra – and that’s no accident.

Libra wants everything to be just and fair in their personal life and in the world. You can test the patience of a Libra for a long time and then one day the scales tip and Libra wants justice – and usually they get their justice.

Libra also does not like living or being alone. To the Libra, life is also about relationships. There is no sign in the Zodiac that wants to please more than a Libra, which is ruled by Venus.

It seems Libra is born to please people and because of this they enjoy being involved and will help when others walk away.

A Libra often has a problem making decisions, so they often become a collector of opinions before making a move of any kind.

This is because they are looking for acceptance and do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings by making the wrong decisions. Libra really wants everyone to love them.


People born this week: George R.R. Martin, Sept. 20, 1948; Nicole Richie, Sept. 21, 1981; Joan Jett, Sept. 22, 1958; Bruce Springsteen, Sept. 23, 1949; Marty Cintron, Sept. 24, 1971; Blake Lively, Sept. 25, 1987; Serena Williams, Sept. 26, 1981; and Lil Wayne, Sept. 27, 1982.


Here’s an early warning: Mercury goes retrograde early in the morning on Oct. 21 and remains that way for three weeks. If you are thinking of signing a contract or buying a large, expensive item, it might be wise to get it done before the retro period. Next new moon is Oct. 4. Best day this week would be Wednesday, Sept. 25 when the moon is in Gemini and it makes good aspects to both Uranus and Mars.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) You should be feeling and doing better now that the full moon has come and gone. Any change you might have in mind should be considered at least an hour or two before the final answer. In that way you can avoid mistakes that are often made when you act and then think.

Christmas Caramels to Kick Off the Season

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Take an hour or two this week for yourself. You need a slow change of pace since that will give you time to do more thinking before you make a final decision on your pending situations. A long-ago pal could be wondering just what happened to you and why. Be kind and give them a reason.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Making plans for future meetings with your significant other is a wise move right now. So keep planning, but include some surprises and you won’t be disappointed. A new face could also enter your life and he could bring along his own surprises. So be ready.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If you do the proper planning right now you won’t have to worry about future success. So stop wasting your time on nonsense and work on projects that have real meaning to you. This is no time to waste your efforts on the wrong ventures. So make a mature decision and stick with it.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Having to back down from a long-held vision is not the end of the world. Try not to get caught up in the details of this project and you stand an outstanding chance of winning the game. Your greatest task now is to stay clear of the negative thinking surrounding this junket.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) If you can remain steady in your role at work you can be sure there will be rewards coming soon. You need to keep your mind clear and stay away from negative influences now. Otherwise you could lose this golden opportunity to reach your work goal.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Try looking forward to some new adventures because that is what is about to happen and you will be grateful. So stay alert and make sure the events about to happen are exactly what you want in your life. Otherwise things could get out of your control.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If you find yourself in a negative situation it would be wise to back off quickly and run. This is no time to fight the cause. It is a week to keep busy and avoid all controversy. Otherwise you could find yourself in the middle of a small drama. And you don’t like that at all.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec, 20) If you are taking life seriously now it would be smart to relax. Try to lighten up and enjoy what is happening around you. Otherwise you are going to miss some really good times. There is no need to be stressed when it is time to laugh a little and enjoy your newfound friends.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) There is an ample amount of stress bothering you right now. The best way to handle it would be to face it head on and get some help to solve the problem. Your finances will improve once you decide to budget both time and money. Your days of financial irresponsibility are over. Pluto has started its job. Be happy.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) As much as you might dislike change, it is under way and there is little you can do about it, except like it. Within days you will have a new attitude and a totally new direction. The time you used to waste is now being filled with productive ventures. Be glad you were forced to make some positive moves.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) This could be a week of new adventure as you venture into bigger and better things to do. A new friend could be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to opening doors to a new you. Look for new people and places also in your life as you change your attitude.
