Over the years, I have enjoyed reading my horoscope to find out what the month usually has in store for me … or not. As a Libra, my horoscope sign is represented by the scales. As one of the three air signs (Gemini and Aquarius being the others), Librans have a strong intellectual connection with the world; Librans love to analyze and solve problems that they and the ones they care about face; and Librans are known to be fair and just.
I never really paid attention to my horoscope until I was in high school, and then at that point, it was imperative to know what the day, week and month held in store in the areas of work, love and life. Having gone to co-ed high school, it was a ritual for us to sit on the school staircase as we each read our own horoscope out loud from the week’s gossip magazine or if we were being bold, Glamour or Cosmopolitan. We were in such a rush to grow up!
According to Astrology-Zodiac-Signs, some of the traits demonstrated by someone born between September 23 – October 22 are:
Strengths: Cooperative, diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded, social
Weaknesses: Indecisive, avoids confrontations, will carry a grudge, self-pity
Libra likes: Harmony, gentleness, sharing with others, the outdoors
Libra dislikes: Violence, injustice, loudmouths, conformity
Nowadays, I have my go-to place to read my horoscope, mainly because it is my default homepage when I turn on my computer. Reading my horoscope on Refinery29 this morning, I was reminded of a few things:
- We are half-way through the year basically. Where did the time go?!
- Summer is almost here. June 20th marks the first official day of summer.
- It’s June 1st
“Ready to go global, Libra? Wanderlust washes over you this June, so let’s make that a yes. Until the 17th, your ruling planet Venus is synced up with el sol in Gemini and your ninth house of travel. Bali, Berlin, Burning Man: You could already be booking tickets by the new moon on the 4th. Your adventurous spirit is stoked and you’ll need more room to roam. Even if you’re not hopping a 747, spend more time on Mother Nature’s playground. If you can’t get down with the camping thing, well…glamping or a canyon-hiking meet-up group could sing a sweet siren’s song.”
For my fellow Librans, check out what the month of June has in store for us. It is definitely looking like a banger of a month! With travel and Venus on our side, the half-year mark will only further prove what I have been saying all along … 2016 is the year!
If you aren’t a Libra, what’s your horoscope/star sign? And has the year been all you expected so far?... N. xo
