As we move beyond summer, we “fall” into a routine—we begin to let go, and the changing landscape reminds us of the impermanence of things. We are now officially in fall, marked by September 22’s autumn equinox, when we entered the sign Libra associated with equal parts of day and light, better known to us as the sign of the balancing scales. Striving to attain some sense of balance is very much centered around relationships—not just our interpersonal relationships, but also our relationship to ourselves.

Relationships are a big part of our human experience—to our emotions, with family, friends, and lovers. Interpersonal dynamics shape who we are, and the month of October is intensely about balance. Some important questions to ask yourself this month: What can I do to feel more in balance? Is there something that I could let go of to feel more centered, more focused, and more balanced in my life? What do I need more of?

The month of October is dominated by the sign Libra, a cardinal sign (which means that it initiates a season). Libra is known for its diplomacy, social grace, and conflict resolution. So as we all channel our inner Libra this month, look to your Libra friends for guidance and be sure to wish them a bon anniversaire!

Key Dates:

  • September 30/October 1 (new moon/new beginning in the sign Libra): Declare your love.
  • October 16 (full moon in the sign Aries): Let go of selfish tendencies.
