LIBRA (September 23–October 23)
Your lesson this month is that actual, real-life personal relationships evolve beyond stereotypes of romance and stock storybook endings. Partnerships focus on service and sacrifice August 9 at the opposition of Venus in Virgo to Neptune in Pisces. Venus enters her own sign of Libra August 16, and commitment “for better or worse,” plus or minus vows taken or implied, is tested August 23–26 at the trine of Venus to Saturn and opposition to Chiron. Communicable empathy and the ability to share and hold space for vulnerability are valuable components of your most enviable skill set. Teach by example.
