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 2022 Libra Season apart from other years.

This year, the Sun enters Libra on Sept. 22, 2022, at 8:03 pm CST and remains there until Oct. 23, 2022, at 5:35 am CST. Here's the solar chart for the 2022 Libra ingress:
2022 Libra Ingress Astrological Data
- Sun’s Zodiac Sign: Libra
- Aspects to the Sun: Sun opposite Jupiter in Aries
- Location of Sign Ruler: Venus in Virgo
- Aspects to the Sign Ruler: Venus opposite Neptune in Pisces
- Location of the Moon: Leo
- Aspects to the Moon: None (Void of Course)
- Important Upcoming Aspects this month: Six retrograde planets, Mars Retro square Neptune Retro
During this 2022 Libra season, the Sun opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter oppositions encourage us to consider the bigger picture. Understanding how your beliefs, ideologies and passions shape your “reality bubble” worldview may be key to helping you find your own equilibrium in a complex world.
Libra’s ruler Venus glitters as the morning star in Virgo. Morning star planets blaze a trail the Sun follows. With Venus in its fall in Virgo, and opposite fantasy-prone Neptune in Pisces, it's no easy path forward.
Venus in Virgo can feel dissatisfied with all things, which can lead to suffering if one is too attached to the appearance of things. Neptune can provide an anesthetizing balm, but too much of that might leave you stuck with a situation that needs changing.
Taken together, Venus and Neptune counsel you to be mindful of what you are feeling, and you may discover more about yourself than you expected.
At the start of Libra season, the Moon happens to be traveling through Leo, where it’s feeling warm and playful. If you need a change a place, make it fun and light. Now is not the time for intensity, or weighty matters.
As for other celestial events, this month is relatively calm. Mars in Gemini squares off with Neptune in Pisces; this may feel like burnout to those who are already exhausted by the year. Combine this with the many-planet retrograde (6 planets!) occurring at the opening of the season, and don't be surprised if you feel like pulling the covers over your head.
Your best approach this Libra season? Scale back, and set aside some space for reflection and recharging. You’ll find your energy bounces back more quickly if you take a time out.
