This is a month for change, Libra. If you’ve been developing a social or business strategy, this is the month to tweak some change in it if it’s not been working. Think in terms of an eighteen month business project. Your sign is always concerned with balance, beauty and social connections, so be diligent in how you deal with others as you make some of these changes. While you’re excellent at making friends, be careful not to spread gossip or talk behind a friend’s back.

If you’re going with a new plan at work, be sure to keep your associates informed as they don’t like being surprised.

The end of the month is a good time to talk finances with your significant other.

It’s the perfect time to switch up your fragrance, and adding Chai eau de Parfum by Robert Piguet is a beautiful choice. As fall is often the start of tea sipping season, Chai is inspired by the delicate scent of white tea leaves, and is combined with bergamot leaves and orange blossoms for their vivid opening notes. Add some honey – but not too much – and then a little citrus, some light florals, and a slight waft of smoke, and you’ve got a lovely new fall fragrance that will uplift your spirits.
