Your Horoscope for Libra
Venus, your ruler, has been in a lackadaisical, lazy retrograde since July 22, so your efforts to make progress on almost any front were thwarted and caused you to be puzzled and frustrated. Venus will go direct on September 3, and from then on you can do all the things I had warned you not to do while Venus was retrograde. Specifically, you can see your dermatologist and have procedures done or call your dentist for cosmetic surgery. You can try a new expensive skin care line, have your hair cut or colored in a dramatic new way, spend for expensive items, like a piece of art or tickets to a concert or opera, or splurge on a long weekend at a luxury hotel.
Best of all, once Venus goes direct September 3 you can start to have first dates again. I had warned that dating someone new when Venus is retrograde is never wise. Venus rules the spark of love, including the warmth, affection and even excitement of meeting someone new who seems to have a lot in common with you. However, if your first date happens when Venus is retrograde, that budding relationship can fall flat soon after. (If you went back to someone you used to know, then Venus retrograde would not affect you negatively—you started the relationship a long time ago.)
Mercury is still retrograde in Virgo as you start September, and Mercury will regulate its orbit too, on September 15, the day after an encouraging new moon in Virgo on September 14. Wait to make your biggest initiations until after September 15 if you can. We cannot control everything in life, and if you have a medical emergency or are afraid you would lose the chance to get the lease to the apartment or the shot at the job if you didn’t sign the contract presented, then do sign. Be sure you have a lawyer look at the contract before you put your name on the dotted line, and make sure you have an exit clause in case you change your mind about the commitment later after you are in the situation.
As you enter September you will be busy finishing a big project. It may have been completed either at the end of August, at the full moon August 30, or will be, at the latest by September 4. This project appears to have taken a great deal of your energy, for Saturn orbited close to the August 30 full moon and shows that your recent assignment was arduous.
