Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 25 to October 1, 2022

We could all use a reset, right? This week gives us just that, with a new moon in Libra on the 25th. New Moons are a time to sit in quiet reflection before setting intentions for the month ahead. Libra is a social go-getter, always leading with balance and beauty. Think: Kate Winslet, Sting and Bruce Springsteen, who were all born with the sun and moon in Libra. This lunation sets us up to find stability in things that have otherwise felt chaotic or experimental. 

Venus joins the sun in her home sign of Libra on the 29th, where the love planet shows affection through exquisite style and impeccable taste. Watch out for things to get super indulgent on the 1st as Venus makes her once annual opposition to Jupiter, encouraging us to make pleasure a priority.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
