September 23 – October 22
DIPLOMATIC • ELEGANT • CONSIDERATE
Libra is a very social sign—you seem to know everyone, and certainly everyone wants to know you! This sign rules marriage so, not surprisingly, Libra is always happiest when coupled up. You believe in the sacredness of marriage, and you enjoy playing matchmaker to others—not only for romantic purposes, but in business, too. Your instincts are remarkably correct. Your family has told you that you can be strong-willed at times, but you exert your opinions in a kind and subtle way. It’s easy to see why you so often get your way! Few can resist your charms. You love to debate different concepts and modern issues, and for that reason many Libras become lawyers or judges.
Last year you were the celestial favorite. During that time, you planted seeds. Now, Jupiter moves to your second house of earned income, and you will see the fruits of your labor. Jupiter will be on a mission to see that you get paid generously. You might want to investigate a new job or talk to your boss about a raise in May. You also may spend money on something expensive—a car, a piece of art or jewelry, new electronics, a house—or rather than buying something, get a massage and go home feeling like royalty. Remember, the money you receive will involve an initiation from you, so don't go and buy lotto tickets. You will earn your cash, which is good news, for no one can say you don't deserve it!
Last year you were the celestial favorite for a span of thirteen months, starting back in September 2016, for Jupiter, the good fortune planet, was in Libra. During that time, you may not have noticed that you were wearing the crown and being protected more than any other sign. The reason is that often during those rare, once-in-twelve-year periods when Jupiter tours your sign, you are busy planting seeds that you don't realize your life is changing, growing, and about to enter a new profitable phase.
Now, you will be able to take stock and make plans. You have planted the seeds, and now, in the next gestation of Jupiter's cycle, you will see buds coming up in your garden. On October 10th, 2017, you transferred your crown to Scorpio as the celestial favorite, and as Jupiter moves to your second house of earned income until November 8th, 2018, you are about to see the fruits of your labors.
This is wonderful news, for Jupiter will be on a mission to see that you get paid generously for your talents, experience, and good judgment. You will get several opportunities throughout the year to do so and climb higher. Chances are you will like the assignments you work on. It's been years since you've hosted Jupiter into your second house of earned income—not since October 2005 through November 2006. It's been so long that no doubt the luck you will feel will seem new and perhaps even surprising.
Your moneymaking trend will continue for a long time—almost a year—so you will have plenty of time to make money from several sources. Jupiter will cooperate with Pluto this year (Pluto is based in your home and property sector), so you may easily make money from real estate. A movie scout may ask to rent your house to turn it into a set or for an advertising shoot. You may make money by renting your home to Airbnb assuming you feel confident about doing so. Other sources of income might include selling furniture or other items you no longer need or profiting from an estate sale. If your space is large, you may take a roommate or tenant.
Knowing how fortunate you will be regarding money, you might want to investigate a new job or if you are happy where you work now, have a talk with your present boss about a raise in May. If you are not working, look all month for possible jobs, whether you prefer part-time or full-time work—you may hit on something you love to do. Scorpio rules detective work, as well as investigative reporting and journalism and anything having to do with law and order, for example. Writing a detective novel or screenplay would also fit here as a possible source of profit. My point is there are many ways to make money, so find a job that you are passionate about because in the end, love for your job will always determine ultimate success.
Also this year, connected to Jupiter’s visit to Scorpio, you may spend money on something you dearly want and something that is fairly expensive. If you have been saving up and can afford the prize, why not buy it? You may want to buy a car, a piece of art or jewelry, new electronic equipment, or a house. You also don't have to think as big as I have just described, you can choose a smaller luxury. Rather than buying something very expensive, schedule a massage after work and go home feeling like royalty.
Remember, the money you receive will involve an initiation from you, so don't book a flight to Las Vegas and hope to try your luck at the blackjack table or buy lotto tickets. You will likely earn your cash, which is good news for if you can earn a million dollars, you can earn two million, and no one can say you didn't deserve it!
