Style can be stressful when you're busy, and dressing up can even feel like another part-time job. That extra hour of matching, accessorizing, makeup application, and blow-drying can be a real weight on an already overloaded schedule.
Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of art, beauty, and sensuality. The Libra new moon reminds us that taking time to adorn yourself can be pleasurable, even a ritual escape from all the intense, achievement-focused energy of the day. It may seem frivolous when you’re driving kids to practice, cramming for finals, or hammering away at a massive deadline. But this Libra new moon insists that you’re worth the extra time!
But are time challenges making you style-strained? Our friend and life coach Lois Barth suggests creating a "uniform"—a simple, go-to combo—to cut down stress when you face your closet. Like: structured top, skinny jeans, boots…GO! Or: scoop-neck shirt, leggings, flats, colorful bag, DONE.
At the Libra new moon, give yourself a little style overhaul. Enlist a fashion-savvy friend to help. What can you toss or donate? If need be, pull your whole wardrobe out, lay it on the bed, and assess. Libra knows best: When you look good, you feel good. You carry yourself with more confidence and your energy attracts opportunity. You communicate your personality to the world through your style.
