Lighten Up, It’s Libra Season: Weekly Horoscopes September 21-25

Libra season is upon us, and for once that actually means good news. Fun, flirty Libra is here to let loose after Virgo got your sh*t together, and now it’s time to balance things out and have a little fun. Now is a perfect time to experiment with your look (who will see it anyway?), send some risky sexts, and open yourself up to new things. Who knew you could actually feel *good* in 2020? 


Libra season is gonna be huge for you, Aries. Your natural gifts will bring easy rewards, but the challenge will be turning off your competitive nature for a sec to enjoy it. Yeah, it can be lonely at the top, but it doesn’t have to be if you remember all the people who helped along the way. Like the friends who answered your texts when you had an existential crisis at 2am. Every night. For three weeks. 


Are you spending hours trying to solve all the world’s problems? Same girl, same. This week, give your mind a break from constantly turning and let yourself do something truly dumb, like a crappy reality tv marathon, or texting an ex to see “how they’re holding up.” That should occupy you for a few hours. Or days…


As Eliza said to Hamilton, take a break, Gemini. You’ve been exhausting yourself trying to keep up but like…what’s even the point? This week, give yourself some time to truly kick it. I’m talking face masks, bubble baths, and leaving your phone on do not disturb. The group chat can wait until tomorrow (unless you remember a funny meme you forgot to send, which does count as an emergency).


Cancer mad!!! This week, you might find yourself angry at those closest to you for reasons that range from “legitimate grievance” to “they won’t stop existing near me.” Breathe. Use some of Libra’s diplomatic energy to talk yourself down before you end up blowing up your quarantine pod over an ill-timed “kk” in the group chat. It’s not worth it (though we all know that sh*t is passive aggressive).


Libra brings a softness to everything, including you Leo. Let yourself be vulnerable this week. If this were 2003, I’d tell you to set some song lyrics as your away message and blast Something Corporate until your mom asks you what’s wrong, but the year is 2020, and so i’ll just tell you to talk to your friends about your feelings instead. It’s less dramatic, but it works. 


Handing your season over to Libra might feel difficult (how will things ever get done?!?), but use this as an opportunity to bring more balance to your life. If you’ve been racing to get sh*t done for weeks, that means it’s time to slow it down. Not every second of the day needs to be scheduled, thought through, and planned. 


Welcome to your season, and it couldn’t have come soon enough. Your sign is all about justice and in case you haven’t noticed… we’re in need of it. Use the energy you get from having the Sun in your sign to make a difference. Register voters, volunteer in the election, or find some other way to give back to your community. At the very least, it’ll take your mind off the end of the world for a sec. 


You may be feeling a bit out of control lately, so it’s time to pull it back. Resist the urge to dive headfirst into some new thing and focus on the things you already have going on. Like that pile of clothes that has been growing in the corner of your room since April. It’s starting to develop a mind of its own.


The chaos of the world has been weighing on you lately. This week it’s important for you to find a way to unwind. And that probably begins with turning off the news for a couple of hours. The Betches Sup Newsletter will catch you up with whatever you missed in the morning.  


Open your mind, Capricorn! Libra season is the perfect time for you to let some new ideas bounce around in that brain of yours. Hard to believe, but you don’t actually know everything. Open yourself up to the possibility of learning something from others (and then they’ll probably be a lot nicer when you realize your way was better all along). 


Your sign loves to look at the big picture, but unfortunately the big picture is literally on fire right now. Use Libra season as a chance to focus on small wins. You can’t stop climate change, end racism, and bring Ruth Bader Ginsburg back before November, but you can make your voting plan or volunteer to be a poll worker. Baby steps.


Your job this week, Pisces: do nothing. Yep that’s right. The stars want you to put a pause on basically everything and just observe for a little while. Sometimes your split-second decision making can lead to less-than-desirable outcomes. Like the time you went home with that DJ in college.
