Libra the Scales, sign of Balance and harmony, yes? Maybe, or maybe not...

Each year, thanks to an ever-moving sky, Zodiac signs manifest a little differently. So, let’s dive into the astrological energies that set the 2023 Libra Season apart from other years.

This year, the Sun enters Libra on Sept. 223, 2023, at 1:50 am EDT and remains there until Oct. 23, 2023, at 11:21 am EDT. Here's the solar chart for the 2023 Libra ingress:


2023 Libra Ingress Astrological Data

  • Sun’s Zodiac Sign: Libra
  • Aspects to the Sun: Sun square Moon in Capricorn; Mars also in Libra (in detriment)
  • Location of Sign Ruler: Venus in Leo
  • Aspects to the Sign Ruler: Venus in Leo square Jupiter in Taurus
  • Location of the Moon: Capricorn (in detriment)
  • Aspects to the Moon: (see above)
  • Important Considerations this Month: Uranus in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces, trine Pluto in Capricorn

During this Libra season, feisty Mars joins the Sun in Libra. Mars prefers to lead the pack; it’s out of its comfort zone in Libra since it must consider the needs of others as well as its own. This makes this season a little more prone to open conflict than usual; you may find you need to count to 10 before you can speak diplomatically. Or, you may feel you need to give yourself some space from your loved ones so you can pursue your own dreams for a little while. 

Libra’s ruler Venus glitters as the morning star in Leo. Morning star planets blaze a trail the Sun follows, infusing the Sun with a little of their energy. With Venus in Leo, it’s all about exploring the creative powers of Love. You may feel the urge to manifest your inspirations in the mundane world, given that Jupiter is tugging at Venus from Earthy Taurus. If you’re shopping for new clothes, scheduling a spa day, or considering how to beautify your space, you’re sensing the season’s vibe.

At the start of Libra season, the Moon travels through Capricorn, where it widely squares the Sun. Capricorn's energy is cold and contracted like the winter season it represents, so it’s not the comfort-loving Moon’s favorite place to be. But, Luna’s learning potent lessons about the power of delayed gratification. Keeping it simple, and embracing a little discomfort for the sake of a larger goal, is usually the best solution.

In other celestial news, the easy alignment of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto continues. In history, it’s rare the three outer planets are so closely aligned (though it has happened several times in the 20th century). It’s often a signal of a deep paradigm shift in the collective unconscious. The energy is so subtle, it will take years for it to be felt in everyday life. For now, it’s merely a suggestion of a new possibility. This is especially true in how we relate to the earth and the oceans, given that the planets occupy earth and water signs.
