Libra Weekly Horoscope

WEEK OF August 16 – 2 2, 2021

A galactic glow-up is your gift from the stars starting this Monday, August 16. For this you can thank your radiant ruler Venus who kicks off her annual homecoming parade through Libra. Between now and September 10, you emanate the kind of beauty that doesn’t come out of any bottles or jars. If you’re not feeling your sharpest, don’t look to others for style tips. You’re the ultimate muse on such matters and this Venus transit will bring it all back…in 4D! Take extra time “in the chair” every morning, even if the only people you’re wardrobing for are on Zoom and TikTok. This confidence-booster isn’t superficial: Taking great care of yourself is a Libra’s authentic expression. With vixen Venus in the mix, be proactive in the game of love. Delight in the company of people who activate your higher mind and your nether regions. And hang on to your final rose until you meet someone who deserves it. Attached? Give your sweetie top billing in your iCal. But ease up on the demands and expectations. Enjoying the present moment is where the magic lies!

You may start singing an entirely unexpected love ballad starting on Thursday, when unconventional Uranus backflips in Taurus and your eighth house of seduction, secrets and all things sexual until January 18, 2022. The planet of radical change has been hovering in this zone since May 2018 and sticks around until April 2026. During this yearly retrograde you may catch yourself asking bigger questions about the meaning of life, which could lead you down some serious rabbit holes. All well and good, Libra, but remember that even as you seek out guidance and wisdom from teachers and gurus, your own intuition deserves to have the loudest voice. Since the eighth house is the erotic realm, check in with yourself to make sure you aren’t prejudging people or blocking your own fantasies. You can shake things up during this cycle and perhaps come out a little freer or more liberated. Of course, you’re still a slow and sensual Libra, and you’ll probably require a perfect balance of lust and trust before you go all in.

Got something to drop, debut or trot out to a test market? This weekend is prime time, thanks to Sunday’s fame-boosting full moon in Aquarius (8:01AM EDT), the second in a back-to-back pair that kicked off with the July 23 full moon. If you’ve been finessing the final details of a project, it may be time to declare it “better done than perfect” and share it with the world. Bask in the glory, take in the feedback, then decide whether or not to keep working at it or move on to something new. A “will-they-won’t-they” situation in your love life may resolve itself within two weeks of this full moon. Ramp up your efforts over the weekend, then let the chips fall where they may.

Later Sunday (5:35PM EDT), the Sun slips into Virgo and your transitional twelfth house, ushering in the final chapter of your annual solar year. Settle onto the meditation cushion and ease into your annual psychic-cleaning mission. On September 22, the Sun will blast into Libra, kicking off your astrological New Year, and you’ll want to start with a clean slate. Before then, your job is to clear away cobwebs and move through sticking spots that have been holding you back for the past eleven months. Take an unflinching look at whatever you sense might be blocking you from taking a bold step into your new life. Have you been hanging on to certain relationships out of a sense of duty or thinking they might change? Have you gotten wise to an inner saboteur who keeps messing things up just as you’re about to reach a new high point? This kind of work isn’t always possible to do on your own, so consider working with a therapist or an energy healer. Swaddle yourself in the right support and make plenty of space for your feelings—which, for the next four weeks, could span the range from ecstasy to grief and back again.
