Ready for what’s to come? Here’s your weekly guide to maneuver through it all…
September 23–October 22
The sun and Jupiter form an alliance in Libra this week, filling you with exuberance and giving you the impetus to launch a personal journey.

What form of reinvention possesses the most meaning for you? How would you like to break from the past? This is your annual excuse to make a fresh start, and you might even opt to try out a different look. With Mars descending to your foundation angle for the next month and-a-half, you may revert to an old behavior pattern and would do well to work through your underlying emotions and try to be as conscious as possible.
