Whatever you think at the start of May, you could be thinking something completely different by its end. Mercury retrogrades can symbolise a bumpy ride, but if you plan ahead, you can take advantage of this planetary force. On his second backspin of the year, Mercury is heading through your zone of knowledge, Libra, and going over old ground could turn into your favourite activity. Head off on fact-finding missions, do some research and you should stumble across buried treasures.
Matters of the heart
Your love life is on the up, and ditto friendships. Whenever you need people to pull together or, in some cases to stop pulling against you, you seem to have a magic wand that makes it happen, from the 11th. With Jupiter moving into your opposite sign you can simply see what’s best for you and how you can do your best for everyone else at the same time. Marriage is in the stars for some September Librans, while October Librans could meet their ideal match or start talking about a second honeymoon or vow renewal. Family tiffs and sibling rivalries could be smoothed over, thanks to you, so have your white flag and listening ear at the ready.
Luck and cash
The mid-month full Moon is your financial gatekeeper urging you to check in with your spending habits. Settling up and putting things straight is on your astro cash agenda. Try not to think of this as a killjoy, instead you can turn yourself into a financial wizard. Transforming deficits into profits is possible now, thanks to the recent solar eclipse. Jobwise, quickly tie up loose ends and then get creative. Your true potential is about to become obvious to all, even if you are the last to realise it!
Be sure to…
…add more exercise to your routine, and balance competitive sports with arts and crafts.
