5 ways to make Libra season magical!

October Astro Magic 2021

Libra is the sign of relationships, and although pop astrology focuses on love relationships, the sign of the scales governs all relationships, even relationships with our enemies.

But what is the undercurrent of Libra?

In Greek Myth, there is a fantastic tale called 'The Judgment of Paris.

' It's a story about a young shepherd boy named Paris, who Zeus randomly chooses to judge who was the most beautiful Olympian goddess. The contestants were Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, and each of the three goddesses bribes Paris based upon their divine attributes. Hera offers Paris world domination, Athena offers him strategy in war, and Aphrodite drops her magic girdle and offers Paris the most beautiful woman in the world. But, of course, since Paris is a young man ruled by his hormones and without worldly sophistication, he chooses Aphrodite and is given Helen of Troy as his prize.

The Judgment of Paris is not a story about love despite its surface-level storyline. Paris' prize, Helen of Troy, was already married, and their illicit affair caused the Trojan War. So, the story is about human choices, and on its deepest level, so is the sign of Libra.

This month our choices matter, so we need to make them carefully!

5 Magical Ways to Make the Most Out of Libra Season

1. Air Magic: Libra is an air sign, and the element of air is associated with the rational intellect and our ability to communicate our thoughts and ideas. So, pay close attention to what you say because, like it or not, your words are magical – they can heal or destroy. One of the easiest ways to perform air magic is journaling. The act of using a pen to channel words onto paper is a magical art that doesn't get enough fanfare, but it works, and it works well. Also, incantations, prayers, blessings, and saying a spell are all forms of air magic. Tools you may want to include are pens, pencils, paper, markers, feathers, incense, and grimoires.

2. Attraction Magic: Venus is the planetary ruler of Libra, and one of the attributes she excels at is attraction. Whether it's men, money, or beautiful adornments, Venus doesn't seek out what she wants; it comes to her. So, likewise, we can use attraction magic to bring to us what we desire. Just be careful of what you wish for.

3. Love Magic: Love makes the world go round, and the sign of Libra has something to say about it. We can use Libra's powerful discernment to help make better choices when it comes to relationships. Our good friend Dorothy Morrison has one suggestion when using magic for love – be specific and make sure you request a human being. Otherwise, if you want to bring love into your life or improve an existing relationship, Libra season can help you out.

4. Business Magic: If you own a business, you have business relationships and maybe some strategic partnerships. The sign of Libra governs all these relationships. You can use Libra season to attract new business relationships, improve existing ones, and eliminate ones you no longer need. Pro tip: Your customers are also a relationship.

5. Legal Magic: Since Libra rules legal matters and justice, you can use the energy of the season to get the upper hand. So, whether you are resolving legal issues or starting legal proceedings, this is the time to do it. (Wait until Mercury turns direct to file legal documents).

Yes, Mercury is Retrograde

On September 28, Mercury turned retrograde in Libra. So, relationships (ruled by Libra) have been under the gun, and this will continue until October 18.

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God

1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly. Make sure all the i's are dotted and all the t's are crossed. Then, if you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde is over to sign on the dotted line.

2. Avoid starting anything new. New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process.

3. Put a watch on your tongue. (If it is not worth saying, don't say it)

4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems. Before Mercury goes retrograde is the best time for a service call.

5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments. Usually, this means you are just going to move again during a future Mercury Rx.

6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance – especially now since the Post Office has still not recovered from the pandemic.

7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments that are on the books.

8. If you do travel, don't take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen.

9. Expect people from the past to resurface. However, once they do crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution.

10. Back up all electronic devices.

11. Avoid buying an automobile.

12. Mercury Rx is a great time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!

Lunar Magic

New Moon in Libra:

We reach the heart of Libra season on October 6 with the New Moon in the sign of the scales. Ordinarily, this would be an excellent time to draw a new relationship to you, but Mercury is currently 'retched out,' and Venus (the ruler of Libra) is in her detriment in Scorpio. So instead, use this New Moon to create new paradigms within your current relationships, which are not just limited to romantic ones.

If you are currently single, you can make a list of all the attributes you would like out of a mate and do some cleansing magic to signify your fresh start. If you are in a relationship, you can use the New Moon to reset (such a lovely Mercury Rx word) the energies and create a more fulfilling dynamic that will help improve the relationship's overall health. In other relationships, you can modify how you work with the New Moon based on the needs of that relationship. The key is formulating new and productive ways to make them healthier.

Full Moon in Aries:

The Full Moon in Aries occurs on October 20. The good news is that Mercury is now direct! The bad news is that Mars (the ruler of Aries) is in detriment in Libra. So, to work with this energy, we must tweak how we would work with the planetary ruler.

The Full Moon in Aries is a two-week cycle of letting go of personal attributes that we may not like about ourselves or are no longer effective. Are there any individual behaviors that you would like to let go of? Oh, and news flash – we all have them! Since Mars is in Libra, you can also look at how you behave in relationships and let go of any unhealthy personal patterns that may limit the relationship's growth. This work is not easy, but the fruits of your internal work will pay off in the end.

Weekly Breakdown

October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021

The first week of October starts mild, but a potential powder keg could explode towards the end of the week if you do not remain mindful.

The week starts with the Moon moving through Virgo, and it's an excellent day to check things off your to-do list. Any tasks that need to be completed should be taken care of because the energy later in the week is not conducive for mundane responsibilities. Then, on Tuesday, we begin preparing for the New Moon as the Moon moves into airy Libra.

Midweek, Venus moves into Sagittarius. You are going to seek excitement and adventure out of your relationships. However, day-to-day repetitious responsibilities may annoy you, and you may feel bored and restless on the regular. So, while Venus is in Sagittarius (until November 5), it would be an excellent time to take a trip or at least get away from the real world – if even for just a little while.

This weekend, stay on guard because the energy is volatile as the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all conjoin in Libra. You will need to put a watch on your tongue because it may pop off at the least opportune time leading to potential arguments and unnecessary conflict.

The key to this weekend is to analyze your life and check to see if you are happy with the direction your life is headed. If not, begin to create a plan of change that will push you in the right direction. You will notice that your mood will be directly connected to the level of your happiness.

October 11, 2021 – October 17, 2021

The second week of October is much easier, with only one snafu on Sunday when the Sun squares Pluto.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Moon moves through responsible Capricorn. As a result, your focus will be on work and work-related matters. Also, mild communication issues may surface on Tuesday afternoon, but they should resolve relatively quickly.

Midweek, Venus forms a helpful trine to Saturn. One feature of this aspect is that it's an auspicious time to work through relationship issues with the likelihood that everyone will stay calm. Another part of Venus sextile Saturn is that it's great for business, especially if you are working on projects with others.

This weekend, we have a couple of positive aspects as the Sun trines Jupiter and Mercury sextiles Venus. First, it's a perfect weekend to look at the big picture and decide what you want out of your life – a notable energy change from last weekend. Second, however, be on guard Sunday because the Sun will square Pluto, and people on power trips will come out of the woodwork.

October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021

The third week of October starts with some good news as Mercury turns direct. You can now sign documents, finalize business deals, move house, or buy a car. Expect communication to return to normal and begin to repair any damage Mercury may have caused, if necessary.

Midweek, we have the Full Moon in Aries. Again, focus on ridding yourself of behaviors that are limiting your relationships. Later on Wednesday, the Moon moves into pleasure-loving Taurus. Over the next two days, do something you enjoy, pamper yourself, and treat yourself to something decadent.

This weekend, Mars forms a challenging square to power-hungry Pluto. Power struggles and disagreements are likely. Avoid falling into a victim mindset. Also, this weekend, Scorpio season begins as the Sun moves into the sign of the Scorpion on Sunday.

October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021

The last week of October is a bit of a dog's breakfast with a mixture of positive and challenging aspects.

At the beginning of the week, Venus forms a challenging square to Neptune. You may have to control your romantic fantasies long enough for your partner to appear human. Further, your expectations may be way too high, and ultimately you could end up disappointed. Also, financial decisions should be avoided until later in the week.

On Thursday, Venus comes out of her Neptunian fog and forms a lovely aspect to jolly Jupiter. It's not a great day to focus on anything important; it's an excellent day to focus on fun and adventure. So, make sure you do something you enjoy.

This weekend, the Sun forms a frustrating square to Saturn. You may experience feelings of self-doubt and other insecurities. Try to push past negative thoughts and do something to distract you. Your problems are probably not as big as they appear to be.
