Your patience, commitment, and hard work will lead to steady growth, so find what inspires you and build that up into something significant.
Jupiter is about to end its zodiac cycle as it enters its own sign, Sagittarius. This transit indicates the need to reassess and reevaluate your progress regularly. This way you can decide what you need to do and change to accomplish your goals. With Mars and Sun transiting through Virgo, you are likely to come up with new ideas that promise financial gains. The positive influence of stars will give you strong intuition, so trust your gut. Your unconventional approach and innovative ideas promise success.

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac, and its symbol is the Scale. Librans are recognized as the most peace-loving and harmonious people and are known for their sincerity, commitment, and love for others. Being highly balanced in their approach, when confronted with a problem, they try to solve the matter amicably and without taking sides. Librans are true party animals who know how to make the best out of each and every situation. They want to experiment with new things, whether that’s food, fashion, or meeting people. Bring a movable sign, they like to travel a lot and hardly ever stay at one place for a long duration. They are charming, witty, and rarely in a gloomy mood. Ruled by Venus, they’re also highly emotional and sensitive. They have a strong desire for love, compassion, and understanding, yet because they’re an idealistic sign, it’s hard to satisfy Libran natives.
A Libran male is strongly built, with a magnetic personality and sense of humor that pulls a crowd at any social event. Being highly creative, he’s interested in acting and music and is a great entertainer. He also enjoys a large social circle and makes a good host. A Libran man is highly fashion-conscious and has high taste. He has very strong humanitarian qualities and expresses them in a very positive way. Being ambitious, he works hard to achieve his results. However, a Libran male should not undertake more responsibility then he can handle, preferably seeking balance between work and free time.
A Libran woman is the most feminine sign of the Zodiac. She is graceful, elegant, charming, sensitive, stylish, multitalented, and stands out in the crowd. She loves perfection, and this is manifested in everything she does. She also has great appreciation for art and surrounds herself with beautiful things. However, a Libran woman is hard to please because she cannot accept anything below her standards. If you win her favor, she is highly devoted in a relationship and is a good wife and mother. Her enormous talents give her exceptional strength. She can excel as a singer, artist, entertainer, or fashion designer, and also in finance and management.
A Libran can be trusted with a secret. With new moon in Libra this October, you will make new friends, and the relationships you establish at work will be lasting and lead to favorable results. With planets in your favor, gains from past and recent investments cannot be ruled out, but unless you spend sensibly, you are likely to remain in a financial crunch. If you have children, you will provide them with nothing but the best, and those with a spouse can expect thrilling news later in the month. Distant journeys, maybe overseas for some, will be highly pleasurable and rewarding. A spiritual person provides solace and mental peace.
