It’s finally Libra season, that beautiful time of camaraderie and magic.
Spanning from September 22 to the wee hours of October 23, this season of reconnection usually kicks off right at the autumnal equinox, when there is just about equal amounts of day and night. Not surprising, as Libra is associated with the energy of balance.
Ruled by the symbol of the scales, Libra wants to keep things equal, which is why Libras tend to excel in relationships. They are excellent mediators, friends, and great people to have on your side.
Right now is a perfect time to explore how your home space can enhance your relationships, bring in a more beautiful and balanced aesthetic, and be a more inviting place to host gatherings with friends.
Let’s take a look at some ways you can use your moon sign, which is associated with your domestic life (and, incedentally, also determines what fills you up emotionally), to get your house ready for Libra season.
Think: adventure. Do something outside your comfort zone with your friends at your house. Have a painting party and paint your whole house in bold colors. Or for a less drastic approach, use chalkboard paint on one wall and then ask your friends to make their mark.
Think: beauty and love for nature. Do something creative at your home that will also support the planet. Can you repurpose something you were planning to throw away? Get your friends involved and have a housewares swap!
Think: learning. You have collected so many books over the years. Now would be a great time to showcase all the knowledge you have acquired by purchasing a pretty set of bookends to balance your bookshelf.
Think: nurturing. Host a comfort food dinner party. Bonus points for making the dress code “Come in your pajamas!”
Think: high drama. Host a screening of your favorite dramatic movie, or turn one room in your house into a mini-theatre or stage and host your actor/actress/musician friends for a live performance.
Think: grounding and organizing. You are already super organized and balance comes easy in that department. So now is a great time to channel Venus and add a beautiful piece of artwork that reflects your refined and intricate tastes.
Think: balance. You may feel overwhelmed with social obligations, so create a retreat for yourself to relax and reflect in either your bedroom or bathroom. A beautiful mirror can help keep energy and light flowing through your space.
Think: sexuality & partnership. Re-decorate your bedroom to amp up your sex life, paying close attention to color, texture, and lighting.
Think: inspiration. Have a bonfire for your friends where they can burn all their old papers and junk mail to make space for spiritual inspiration and growth.
Think: goals. Now could be a good time to grow your goals, harnessing the plant energy of Thyme, which is associated with the sign of Libra. Write out an intention and put it in the bottom of a pot and let it (and your dreams) grow.
Think: activism. Charge your home with your passion for social justice by hosting a fundraiser for a good cause. You’ll feel the high vibrations from doing good all season long.
Think: healing. Designate some space in your home for escaping into your imagination. Anything from a blank page in a nice journal, to a window with a pretty view, to a meditation room. You’ll be more able to engage with your friends when you really make room for bringing fantasy into your daily life.
