Happy Birthday, Libra! For a special pressie just for you, we bring you your year-ahead beautyscope, valid from September 2015 – October 2016.
You are one of the most social signs of the zodiac, but last year you mutated into a party animal of epic proportions. So much of your energy was spent on friends and networking that you could use a little down time to regenerate. With Jupiter in your introspection sector until next September and leave-me-alone Saturn in your communications zone, the next 12 months may be relatively low-key. Don’t feel pressured to join every group activity or comment on every Instagram photo. Your natural tendency will be to conserve energy for yourself and that’s the key to keeping yourself looking fresh and stunning all year round.
Over the next year, you may not want to make any major changes to your appearance; it is all about curating your existing inner beauty and making sure you radiate it to the world. If you spend time away from the maya of existence and look within, you can totally transform your psyche and regain that sparkle in your eyes to dazzle the world with. Ditch your old baggage once and for all and you will feel free and liberated (& look years younger)!
Your home can become a place of refuge and renewal. You don’t need to spend tons of money at clinics when you can transform your own space into a five star day spa. Indulge yourself in bubble baths and invest in a foot massager. Schedule a weekly in-house self-pampering session and indulge in face masks and hair treatments. The best days for at-home beauty treatments are in the weeks surrounding Jupiter’s very rare trine to Pluto on October 11, 2015, and March 16 & June 26, 2016.
You will need to take particular care of your sense of well being as a series of retrogrades, aspects and eclipses could wear you down. First off, Mercury will be retrograde in your identity zone from September 17 – October 9, 2015. During this period, do not do any major changes to your look, such as cosmetic surgery, getting a radical new haircut or color, or a tattoo. You risk lingering complications and unwanted results.
If you want to revamp your image wait until beauty-planet Venus and sexy Mars enter your sign in mid-November. Venus will remain in Libra until mid-December, but Mars will be making you super sultry until early January. So even though you will be a bit off-the-radar over the next year, you will be at full-power for the Christmas and New Years holidays.
If you need to go to a fitness trainer, doctor or dietitian, avoid the period around November 26, 2015, and June 17 and September 10, 2016. It will be difficult for you to communicate your wellness needs effectively and you may not get the right treatment necessary.
This year’s eclipses could bring jarring energy to your relationships and overall wellness – and wear down your looks. It is important during these periods to make sure you eat well and get plenty of rest to calm your nerves and keep your healthy glow. The weeks prior to the eclipses could be extremely nerve-wracking as life could throw you a curve ball to deal with. Watch out for these dates: September 27, 2015; March 8 and 23, 2016; and September 1 and 16, 2016. The eclipses of September 28 and March 23 will effect your relationships and sense of self. If you feel you need to try something new as a way of coping with problems, do it through make-up changes or buying a wig as a way of trying out your new look for a test-run before doing something radical and difficult to reverse. The other eclipses will effect your health and wellness sectors so take extra care to eat well, get rest, and exercise.
Some super-good news: the monetary worries that have been hounding you for the past two years now recede for good. Your bank account will start to stabilize, so taking a time out from high-cost socializing can help you as you turn your financial situation around. You love buying clothes and make-up, but haven’t been able to for a long while, this all changes now, as you have more money to spend on non-essentials, helping boost your overall luminosity.
Finally, feel-good Jupiter will enter your sign on September 9, 2016. Your next birthday promises to be super special!
In a wink: This will be a year that is more about introspection and interior growth than superficiality. Your allure can grow from one of extroversion to being more silent and sultry – think a 1940s film noir femme fatale. While last year you were concerned with catching up with friends, you can now start working on catching up with long-lost you.
