Libra season is here! All the astrology girlies out there probably know what this means, but for those of you who are fairly new to astrology, don’t worry! I’m here to give you a sense of what to expect this season and what you can do to manifest the best version of yourself. With the help of The Cosmic Latte, an online platform for the spiritually curious to connect with themselves and the universe on a deeper level, I’ll be breaking down what Libra season will bring into your life based on your rising sign. Let’s start with the basics!

How to create your birth chart

There are a number of free apps that will curate your birth chart for you. I like to use Sanctuary, Co-Star, and TimePassages. Once you’ve downloaded an app (or a few), just put in some basic information about yourself: birth date, place of birth, and exact time of birth. The time must be exact, because even in one minute the stars and planets may have shifted! Your birth chart may look intimidating at first as there are many different components, but for now, we’ll just look at your big three: your sun, moon, and rising sign.

sun, moon, and rising signs: what do each mean?

Your sun sign is the one you most likely know about. It represents your sense of self, individuality, vitality, self-expression, and values. My sun is in Taurus, which means I’m extremely loyal, stable, practical, and quite stubborn. Your moon sign represents your inner emotional world and your intuition. My moon is in Scorpio, giving me an intense emotional side that makes it hard for me to open up to other people. Your rising sign is the “you” that is projected onto others; it’s the impressions you make, how you see the world, and how you interact with your surroundings. My rising is also in Scorpio. I tend to come across as perceptive, somewhat mysterious, and even sometimes intimidating.

Libra season

Libra is an air sign and a cardinal sign. It’s ruled by Venus, which is the planet of beauty and love. Libra symbolizes balance, peace, and justice and values partnership and collaboration. So, now that you know how to calculate your big three and are aware of the basics of this season, let’s get into what you can expect when the sun shifts into harmonious Libra.

Aries rising

If you’re an Aries rising, this is your time to “bask in the warm glow of your one-on-one relationships (both platonic and romantic).” This season brings progress in your love life, and you have the potential to reach your next relationship milestone. It’s important for you during this time to “Air out your tensions, rather than brush them under the rug.”

Taurus rising

For all the Taurus risings out there, “…your self-care practices are energized” this season! This is the time to splurge on things that improve both your physical and mental wellness. This season also brings an increase in productivity as well as the potential to establish a more grounding daily routine.

Gemini rising

If you’re a Gemini rising, it’s important to “…reconnect with your creative and romantic spark” this Libra season. Don’t be afraid to be playful as you’re feeling more pleasure-seeking impulses at this time. Go ahead and “…rekindle your flirtatious nature.”

Creating a sanctuary for yourself is essential this season if you’re a Cancer rising. Give your living space a spruce! Similar to Aries, it’s important to air out your tensions during this time, especially if you’re sharing a living space with someone (roommate, partner, or family member). It’s also important to “…nurture [your] roots…” and reconnect with family this Libra season.

Leo rising

For Leo risings, this season brings an increase in “self-expressive pursuits.” Share your creative insights with the world! It may be important for you to take a quick trip to discover something new, like a long drive to a fun new location. It may also be important for you this season to spend more time with family and friends.

Virgo rising

If you’re a Virgo rising, this season brings a focus on your finances and work. Go ahead and “expand your sense of abundance” this Libra season. It’s a good time to “discover a new income stream, rebalance the work-life scales, or take inventory of your spending habits.” Don’t undervalue yourself or your skills just to please others.

A re-awakening of your personal growth journey presents itself for all the Libra risings out there! This is a time to “…expand your self-expression” as you’re experiencing a feeling of infinite potential for your future during this time. Manifestation is key this season, and it also may be helpful to update your physical appearance with a new haircut or by wearing floral and pastel shades of clothing.

Scorpio rising

For all my fellow Scorpio risings out there, “..you [may] feel called to retreat into a private sanctuary” this Libra season. You may feel out of touch with your emotions, and thus “crave a quiet, reflective state to recharge.” Take this time to dive deeper into self-understanding, but make sure you’re not overdoing it with the introspection: no brooding!

Sagittarius rising

There’s a greater emphasis on your social life if you’re a Sagittarius rising. You may feel more outgoing and adventurous than usual this season. Try more group activities as well as nurturing your one-on-one friendships. This Libra season brings a time for you to “…indulge in a sense of union and community.”

Capricorn rising

Capricorn risings will have a focus on career goals and ambitions this Libra season. Try to “…expand your work style” by listening to different music or a podcast or by lighting a scented candle. You may find yourself feeling busier during this time, so it’s important to rebalance your work-play scale.

Aquarius rising

If you’re an Aquarius rising, “…you’re ready to embark on your next adventure” this season. You may feel a desire to search for a deeper meaning in your experiences, thus, you may be more drawn to “travel, culture, philosophy, religion, and faith.” Learn and explore something new as you’re on the verge of a breakthrough!

Pisces rising

Pisces risings will have a similar experience as Scorpios where you may feel a desire to retreat into your emotions, although, unlike Scorpios, you may not necessarily feel out of touch with them. It’s important to “…expand your inner world.” Try activities like yoga, guided meditation, or even therapy. “Rather than float on the surface, recognize that vulnerability is an ocean.”

Libra season is all about finding and restoring your balance and inner peace. While some rising signs may need to shift their focus to more external events, these factors still play a key role in maintaining internal harmony. So, whether you’re taking on the role of an explorer, an interior designer, or a girl boss this Libra season, remember that whatever path you’re taking, the stars will be there to guide you on your journey. I hope The Cosmic Latte and I can help you discover something new about yourself and gain a better understanding of how you can continue to grow with the support of the universe.
