It’s Libra season everyone! (September 23 to October 23), which means a focus on beauty, balance, relationships, luxury, justice, and equality.
We have moved out of the more practical and analytical Virgo energy and are now well into the calm harmony of the magical and graceful vibes of Libra.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, and is also a cardinal air sign. Those who have Libra as their sun are usually peace-loving people who appreciate the finer things in life and prioritize their relationships. It can also be a decadent, fun-loving sign, and Libra season will encourage you to slow down and appreciate the beauty of the moment.
Balance is essential, as symbolized by Libra’s scales which are also essential to the kind of focus you want to take this season. Finding the right balance between work and play, yin and yang, masculine and feminine energies, is important in October.
It is crucial to have a good work-life balance, and to find ways to do so channel Libra’s grace and harmony with productivity and organization it will set you in excellent stead for the coming month.
Read on for some tips on how to align with Libra energy, get the most out of Libra season, and give your well-being a much-needed recharge.
Nutrition and Cleanses
Since Libra is all about balance, this is an excellent time of year to check in with your overall diet and nutrition. Consider going on a short or fast cleanse; there’s nothing like a little detox to clear your mind and prepare you on all levels for new ideas and creative projects.
If that seems like too much, why not introduce just one detox habit in October? Have a glass of hot lemon water when you wake up instead of going straight to coffee, or increase your intake of water, green leafy vegetables, and sprouted grains.
The beauty of long-term health is established through the individual choices we make every day.
Yoga and Movement

To channel the Libra energy of balance and harmonyincrease your own balance and coordination with yoga poses like Tree Pose, Dancer Pose, Warrior 3, and Half Moon.
There’s nothing like testing your balance in the Tree each morning to gauge where you are that day energy-wise! The best part is seeing how you change and adapt over time. Check in with yourself at the beginning of each week to see your progress.
