Libra is famous for its love of romance, and while you’re certainly in the mood to partner at this time, Sagittarius, you’re not concerned with how many love letters, bouquets, or gifts you’re being showered with—you’re wondering if you and your partners share goals and values. Libra is a cool, intellectual air sign, asking you to take a logical look at where you are in life and ask yourself if you feel supported by the people you’re surrounded by, as well as to consider your hopes and dreams for the future. This is an exciting season for your career, as payoff for all your hard work arrives: How will you invest in your future?
