Twice a year, the Sun aligns with the equator, signaling the beginning of Spring or the beginning of Fall. In the latter case, this also indicates that the Sun is visiting the zodiac sign of Libra. This is the zodiac sign of partnerships. While the Sun visits Libra, the way you see yourself is especially reflected in those people with whom you identify.
All issues of partnership are not brought up during this month-long time span, but the emphasis is there. The fruit is ripe for the picking if you seize the opportunity to fully investigate and experience your closest relationship.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Autumnal Equinox (or September Equinox) takes place this year on the afternoon of September 22. The Sun stays in Libra into the wee hours of October 23. This is a unique time in that the Sun’s visit to Libra underscores your relationship status. Read below to see how the one-on-one time is going to be.
Aries March 21 – April 19
This month shows a magnifying glass appear on your relationship. If your lover is only being appreciated for his looks or handyman skills, he will likely rebel and demand that you embrace some side of him that you have ignored or otherwise minimized.
Your Partnership Pulse: If the love and respect are all there, this is a month where he will be at his most devout and affectionate.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Structure and order are the issues in your life as the Sun’s visit to Libra brings out the part of you that cannot handle loose ends or unspoken agreements. You will spend the majority of this time period getting the details taken care of.
Your Partnership Pulse: If the details are already worked out in your love relationship, this should be a peaceful month where you two do plenty together.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Pleasurable romantic escapades dominate your days while the Sun is in Libra. There are many chances for passion to manifest and a true feeling of solidarity with the one you love is obvious, and everyone in your world may be noticing it. You are inspired.
Your Partnership Pulse: There may be some hesitancy on his part to display affection, but he is complete with you.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Home remodeling issues dominate your days while the Sun visits Libra. Your personal space becomes an obsession; your little corner of the world is the center of the universe. Issues of identity and security could cloud your decision-making process.
Your Partnership Pulse: He will be trying hard to be of assistance, but choose his tasks carefully to ensure that he doesn’t get in the way.
Leo July 23 – August 22
This will be a month of short trips meant to win the approval of some small but influential group of people. The outcome of your efforts will be felt soon after the Sun leaves Libra. To make the best impression, make an effort to be present instead of rehearsed.
Your Partnership Pulse: He might be running for local office or trying to win a popularity contest. Smile and be supportive.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
While the Sun is in Libra you will have a serious testing of the things you hold dear. Someone is trying to seduce or otherwise influence your decision making process. Just because this person is persuasive does not make this person right. Guard your finances.
Your Partnership Pulse: The trying days and nights of the Sun’s move through Libra are forcing him to confront some uncomfortable truths. Encourage him to find peace.
Libra September 23 – October 22
If there was ever a time to assert your accomplishments, it is while the Sun is in your sign. The need to let the world know what you have achieved might consume you around your birthday. Don’t yell and scream. Put up an attractive sign and let people find you on their own time.
Your Partnership Pulse: He might be relying on you for a vote of confidence as he seems to question whether or not you really have a place in your heart for him.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
You might be getting slightly obsessed with a new way to look at the world. The opportunities to reinvent yourself are tempting. You can strip away a lot of things, but make sure that your integrity and commitment to the truth are not casualties. Assert your right to ask hard questions.
Your Partnership Pulse: His hobbies can be all-engrossing to the point that you may have to insist he take you out or at least look in your eyes while you two share a meal.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The exciting time you are having could be from being part of something that is so much bigger than yourself. Be it cheering for a wining team or volunteering with a group that is making a difference, the Sun’s visit to Libra signals a joyful high-point for you.
Your Partnership Pulse: Looking to get noticed, he might be pursuing popularity with a strategy of shocking people with his behavior. Stay a foot or two behind if he gets outrageous regularly.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
There was a need to focus on your career at the expense of your relationship at one time and a reason to focus on your relationship while you made time from your career. But now the two are at odds and demanding your attention. Will your balancing act work one more time for these four short weeks?
Your Partnership Pulse: The demands he is making are loud and clear. You might need to show up on his arm to some functions that you once insisted you would never get within a mile of.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
While the Sun visits Libra, you could be looking for something exotic to spice up your life. While travelling the globe would be great, the chance to finally once and for all learn a new computer program or master a particularly challenging class will present itself.
Your Partnership Pulse: He is bored; more bored than usual. Don’t spend all of your time trying to entertain him, but do find something with which he can entertain himself and point him in that direction.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
This will be a sensitive month for you, for as independent as you like to think of yourself, circumstances have put you at the mercy of someone who is not that impressed with you. Avoid confrontation at all cost and get along to go along until you can move away from having to answer to this terrible authority figure.
Your Partnership Pulse: Expect the flowers and romance moves as he is more inspired than ever to work with you to get a groove on or whatever you two call it when you do what you do to each other.
