At risk of pissing off Virgos, their season isn’t known for being a whole lot of fun. Beneficial and productive? Yes. Chances are you pulled your shit together at least a little bit in the past few weeks. Fun, though? That’s just not the vibe. Libra season, on the other hand, is the seasonal equivalent to a tray of sparkly champagne flutes: it’s fun, bubbly, and indulgent. Put away your planner and join the party!
Starting September 23, Libras’ happy-go-lucky, cutie vibe blesses all of us — regardless of sign — with an extra dose of social grace and charm. In the coming weeks, you’ll probably feel a renewed vigor for going out, flirting shamelessly, hosting “soirées” (and calling them soirées), and spending an embarrassing amount of time considering your personal aesthetic. The only downside is that it’s probably the easiest time in the zodiac year to go really fucking broke. Between FOMO-induced spending and Libra season indecisiveness (can’t decide? Buy both!), it’s rough on the wallet.
So in an effort to *slightly* help, here are nine definitive things you should allow yourself to buy to make the most of this season. Shop now and enjoy it. Brooding and regret are for Scorpio season ;)
Something that can only be called an “art object”
Whether or not you’re the type to normally frequent museums, your sense of art and aesthetics is turned all the way up to eleven right now. While your taste is elevated, invest in something you’ll be able to brag about for the rest of the year.
Decidedly cute shit
Libra season drums up an appreciation for extreme cuteness. This is especially true for susceptible softy signs like Pisces and Cancers (like me, hi!) Why fight it? Add one slightly softer element to your wardrobe this season, just to see what effect it has on your mood. There will be plenty of time for brooding goth vibes come Scorpio season.
A token of love
Venus — the ruler of Libra season — is all about love and sumptuous partnership. Yearning for your perfect other half is bound to be a big upcoming theme for you, even if you’re typically a proud loner (looking at you, Aquarius weirdos and hot Scorpio freaks). Encourage the romance magic with a spritz that puts you in the right mood.
The most outlandish selfcare money can buy
Though you’ll be at your social butterfly peak, this season will also have you striving for balance. Unlike, say, an Aries, who will literally turn up until they pass out for a week, any good Libra knows how vital R&R is after a night out. Invest in something that’s truly lavish. You deserve it.
Shareable snacks with great packaging
As much as Libras adore treating themselves, they’re also natural people-pleasers who love to put smiles on the faces of those around them. Sharing sweet, highly Instagrammable snacks is an easy way to pull it off. Keep ‘em on hand.
Romantic scene-setting supplies
The urge to play host may come on strong in the next few weeks, so prepare accordingly by picking up a few cocktail glasses that scream, “why yes, I am a fashionable adult who both pays taxes and frequents art openings.”
A truly regal loooook
Ok, another Libra drag is that they’re sometimes a...little...bit shallow. Sorry! It’s the price you pay for being charming and cute when the rest of us are weird and messy. This Libra season, lean into it. Go ahead and invest in an item of clothing you’d never waste your money on any other time of year. I’m not talking a great, durable jacket (yawn, save it for Capricorn season), I’m talking something that would have looked right at home in Marie Antoinette or Elton John’s closet.
A go-to restaurant at the ready
The biggest Libra read is that they can’t make a decision to save their life. For all the fun this season brings, mass indecision is also inevitable. Case in point: your group chat is about to become an extremely cursed place where no one can ever make a goddamn decision to save their life. Save the day and have a can’t-fail option handy.
Something you deeply cannot afford
It wouldn’t be Libra season if you didn’t cop at least one item that is — without question — an out-and-out mistake. Make it good, because you don’t get to splurge this hard again until Sagittarius season.
