If Your Birthday is Oct. 18
(The Day of Personal Leadership) | Libra Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Today’s Moon-Venus conjunction on your birthday is encouraging you to show the world your beauty, and to love with an open heart. You don’t need to save your affection for someone special. Love everyone and everything, and let the good vibes roll. If you go light on expectations, that’s celebrating true freedom, which will radiate into your life many other ways.
Written in the Planets
Do you need to negotiate or finalize any business dealings? Today’s conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter should be favorable for that, offering both the broad view and an unusual level of shrewdness and depth of understanding. If you need to dive deep into any subject matter, this astrology should let you slide right in. In dealing with others, notice where your level of patience and compassion are; feeling like you have none left could be a sign that it’s time to shift your perspective. Letting your heart lead is one way to rise above the level of criticism and power (or defensiveness), and to allow something larger to help you be humane. Ask the universe for that assistance if you need it.

As always, your reading is spot on and validates what I am experiencing in life at this time. The sheer acknowledgment that as a Libra I need balance, beauty and aesthetics in my life to make me tick on, balanced, in my day-to-day endeavors and consequently some very huge endeavors for the year was just what I needed to keep going.
