Astrology Hub's Weekly Online Horoscope with Christopher Renstrom
LIBRA SEASON (September 18th - September 24th)
Everyone knows that the symbol for Libra is the Scales. It originated with the depiction of Anubis, the Egyptian god of the Dead, balancing the heart of a deceased soul in one dish with a feather of Maat in the other.
This speaks to Libra's commitment to fair judgment. Yet the Greek word for Libra is "zygos," which means "yoke." The Libra glyph, which portrays the handle of the Scales, can also be seen as a yoke which was used to fasten together two oxen so that they could pull a plow.
It's a fascinating connection to Venus – the planet of marriage in Astrology – and Taurus, the other Venus-ruled sign. Now some people might chuckle at the idea of a yoke symbolizing marriage, but it speaks to an ancient Greek word used to describe a good marriage: "homophrosyne" or "like-mindedness."
Physical beauty and good sex aren't the basis for a lasting marriage. It's like-mindedness – the shared love, wit, history, and support between partners."When a man and wife hold a home together alike in mind," Odysseus says in The Odyssey, "then they are a joy to all their friends and great trouble to their enemies."
It's something to think about when weighing the value of your relationships – be they spousal (regardless of gender), professional, or collaborative during Libra Season which lasts from September 23rd to October 22nd.

Pluto is the planet of ordeals and the transformations that arise from them. Pluto says that you can't get to where you want to go without slogging through hell and high water first. Oftentimes this is painful except when there's a trine. The Sun/Pluto trine on September 21st shows that the circumstances surrounding your personal evolution are positive and constructive. Instead of another setback, you'll experience a step up so that you are now free to claim the prize that always remained out of reach. You've paid your dues and/or done your penance. After years of hardship and struggle, you are coming into your own.
Success isn't the same as winning. Winning can happen once and then you're free to walk away from the game basking in triumph. Success, however, is something that people will come to expect time and time again. In fact, the more masterful you become, the higher the stakes and the less forgiving others will be. Is it any wonder that so many people crack under pressure? Right now the planets are pushing you to push yourself in ways you never imagined before. If this is to your liking, then great. Keep on going. If not? Then it’s best to get out while the getting’s good.
This isn’t going to be a good week for you in the polls. At first, you’ll be scandalized by the bad press you're getting. It’s astonishing how your words can be taken out of context and then twisted to suit others’ purposes. But if you take a couple of steps back and reexamine matters objectively, then you’ll soon see how your past actions could be interpreted in this way. It’s not what you meant to do but perception is everything nowadays. Don’t try to excuse or explain but ask what you can do to improve your situation instead. This will help you regain people’s respect.
You can tell that they're getting ready to go with somebody else. You've been here too many times not to know that a delayed response means something's up. You'll want to gather up your things and make a hasty retreat – you can't stand rejection and aren't looking forward to another send-off - but the First Quarter Moon at the last degree of Sagittarius on September 22nd urges you to go for broke instead. Not only would it be totally unexpected, but anything audacious and out of the ordinary right now will surely pique critics' interest and get them to see you in a new light.
You may not see them, but the sharks are circling. This is what happens when the Sun, your ruler, forms an opposition to Neptune on September 19th. It's like blood in the water and will attract those looking to separate you from your money. What makes this even more difficult is that they can sense your panic as you splash about reaching for one financial solution and then another. The best thing you can do right now is to do nothing and wait for the Sun/Pluto trine on the 21st. This is when you'll receive a helping hand and/or guidance out of your tight spot.
You are cleverer than most. Situations that others find baffling often present creative opportunities for you. This is something you'll experience on September 19th when a supervisor or competitive co-worker throws up their hands and asks you to take over an assignment that they've been struggling with. Make sure that they're truly signing off on this before you accept it. Only if you get that agreement in writing (an email or text will do) should you say yes. The Stars show that you'll succeed where this person failed – which is good – but you don't want them circling back to claim credit for your success later.
All you have to do is get to September 23rd in one piece. That's when the Sun enters your zodiac sign. Once there the coast is clear and you can resume your regularly scheduled life. Unfortunately, you will have all kinds of wild and wooly planets gathering to block your progress and even knock you on your keister. The trick to getting through this rough passage is to keep your eyes on the prize and refuse to be deterred. Consider it a test to see if you truly want something as much as you say. You may surprise everyone – including yourself – with the answer.
Getting together with like-minded individuals can help bolster your confidence in the changes you want to make. This will resonate with you on September 21st when the Sun forms a trine to your ruling planet Pluto. It’s time to break old mental habits and stop giving fears and insecurities so much free psychic real estate. You need to make a better effort at differentiating between realistic concerns and worst-case scenarios because the worries you dream up are undermining your efforts to change things for the better. The Sun/Pluto trine will also help you to separate the supporters from the detractors in your life.
Loved ones can't make heads or tails of you these days, and truth to tell? Neither can you. It's been a long time since you felt this adrift. You know that you're on the verge of making some big life changes, but you just can't motivate yourself to act on them. And that's OK because nobody will be feeling particularly clear or focused as long as the Sun is opposite Neptune in the sky. Thankfully this influence will lift by September 22nd. This is when you'll make the switch from feeling dazed and confused to being awake, alert, and ready to get things going.
Have you finally found the perfect match? The answer is "yes" and "no." "Yes" in that the person you're considering pairing with right now (in either love or money) understands you in a way that nobody else has. This is someone that you've waited years to meet. "No" in that if you've learned anything over the years, it's not to put all your eggs in one basket. Lovers aren't always spouses any more than a business partner is a creative collaborator. Each person has a starring role to play in your constellation of success. Move forward with this latest addition and you'll shine even brighter.
You're traveling through uncharted territory. One would think that this would be appealing because Aquarians are supposed to be curious and experimental but you can also be very set in your ways. That's why you'll be surprised by what takes place on September 21st when a standard meeting with a client or superior takes an unexpected turn as they start sharing their plans for the future. It's uncanny how their ideas for change and innovation mirror your own – almost as if they eavesdropped on your private thoughts. It's funny how synchronicity works. In any event, you'll be left enlivened and with lots to think about.
The Sun/Pluto trine on September 21 will feel like the lights getting turned on at a party where everyone's been fooling around in the dark. You thought you were making out with one person only to discover it's somebody else – and it will be somebody you really don't like. Obviously, we're speaking metaphorically – and one that's not exclusively romantic - yet the realization will be the same. It's hard to believe that you and that pain-in-the-derriere you've always complained about make a great match, but that might be because you're both cut from the same cloth. It probably explains why you fight so much.

Dear Astrology Lover,
Horoscope forecasts used to be about good days, bad days, and when to fall in love. Nowadays people are more knowledgeable about the Stars. They want to know about eclipses, retrogrades, and how long will Saturn be spoiling all the fun. The aim of this weekly horoscope column is to provide a cosmic forecast, timely insight and guidance. Astrology's job has always been to tell you about the “clear skies” and the “stormfronts”; times when the energy supports you moving forward and times when it's best to retreat. But my intent isn't to leave you hanging when things get tough! I’m here to provide awareness and foresight... so you can ultimately CHOOSE how you would like to respond to the energies.
It is my hope that you find the advice helpful and if you’re in a challenging time, that it serves to remind you that this is what the heavens look like right now and whatever's difficult will eventually pass. Astrology was never about some fixed Fate or preordained Destiny. It was always meant to be a calendar aimed at telling you not what to do, but the best time to do it.
