September 22nd – October 22nd
Well, I could say this is the most inflamed version of Libra season I have ever seen, however my house literally went up in flames during Libra season in 2020.
Libra rules the lower back, ovaries, adrenals, kidneys, and the pancreas.
With both the sun and Mars sitting in Libra at the moment, some people may experience inflammation in these organs – especially if your sun or rising sign is in Libra, Aries or Taurus.
We’ve also got Mercury doing it’s final retrograde of the year in Libra this year, so we may see a bit of fluctuation in women’s hormones. We may also see those who are type 2 diabetic or pre-diabetic/insulin resistant experience more erratic blood sugar levels.
Ladies, this is also a good time to get your iron levels checked and balanced (please, please PLEASE don’t supplement with iron, it rarely corrects an iron deficiency and can cause more harm than good – especially during a Mercury retrograde).
Because Mercury is retrograde AND Mars are in Libra this year, a lot of people are going through a lot of tension and arguments in either their romantic relationships or 1-1 business partnerships/relationships.
Naturally, this may cause stress levels to rise, overworking the poor kidneys and adrenals. This is a great time to get a massage (or a few!), focusing on the releasing the back (don’t forget the psoas muscles), hips and legs.
Get stretching, get foam rolling, get yoga-ing, and certainly find yourself a good Pilates class – Libra is all about balance and good posture.
It may be a bumpy ride, but remember to LEAN in to the bumps rather than lament and run away. What is the universe trying to teach you here?
You definitely have something to get off your chest during this month, and now is a great time to do it – while the moon in waning (getting smaller). Find a way to let it out, so your adrenals don’t get rinsed out. Those of you who have a sluggish thyroid definitely need to heed this advice; hypothyroidism x overheated adrenals = disaster.
Mercury retrograde is always a great time to embark on a talking therapy/counselling service.
We have a new moon in Libra on Wednesday 6th of October. Start thinking about business/financial goals you want to fulfil, and how you want to show up in your relationships (which will probably get challenged all the way into Scorpio season).
