(September 23 – October 22)

Your appreciation for courteous exchanges sometimes prevents you from setting limits. But this month, you’re learning to be refreshingly frank. Don’t underestimate the power of a well-chosen outfit that gives you courage and confidence!

Your Libra-season read of the month, brought to you by Simon & Schuster Canada: Diplomatic, go-with-the-flow Libras will love Katy Hays’ debut novel, The Cloisters, about an unexpected—and mystery-filled—summer job. When Ann Stilwell arrives in New York City to be a curatorial assistant at the Met, she’s instead assigned to a gothic museum. She’s happy to get to work, though, and have a distraction from her painful past. But after she discovers a 15th-century Tarot deck, she finds herself in a dangerous game of power and ambition…

To hell with superficiality; you’re attracted to those who offer  truth. This gives you the power to make difficult choices in order to have the experiences you want rather than those that are expected of you.

Dare to put your pride aside and ask for advice—these exchanges could be extremely revealing. The full moon on October 9 motivates you to break your routine, and it also makes you see a situation from a new perspective. You might even regain faith in yourself.
