It’s the last week of September and the first week of Mercury’s retrograde transit through Libra. But, with Mercury not only stationing retrograde just two days after Mars in Libra makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, but also just one day after the Sun in Libra makes a trine to true node in Gemini, it’s a two-steps forward, one-step back kind of dance — and a decidedly Libran one at that.
The dance continues both when our last quarter moon in Cancer applies a square to the Sun in Libra, as well as on the 29th when the Sun in Libra makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius. There’s a sense here that in order to collaborate — to work things out and to keep building together — we’re going to have to give each other emotional respect. Of course, honouring the emotional experience of others shouldn't preclude our ability to advocate for ourselves and for what we believe in. If we’re going to move forward, we have to take a few steps back and do maintenance on the foundation. Trust is integral here, but — no matter how much some Libra and Cancerian babes might wish it otherwise — trust is not a tacit exchange based on implied expectations. It’s a contextual dialogue and a dialectic, too, an emotional contract that changes shape with each new endeavour.
But, like any dialectic, what we feel and what we believe to be true and what we expect from others is informed by our larger cultural experience, by systemic privilege and systemic violence. When our retrograde Mercury squares off with Pluto in Capricorn on October 1, we’re reminded that there’s room in every relationship for those conversations too, and there’s a palpable shadow when that room feels locked or inaccessible, like a weighted silence, like a ghost. Venus in Scorpio makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn the next day, in mutual reception with Libra, reminding us that even when we feel like we can’t move forward, we can, at least, go deeper.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

As Little Mix announced their hiatus, all eyes (and ears) were on their solo endeavours. Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were quick to announce record company signings with new music in the pipeline, but Perrie Edwards's camp had remained relatively tight-lipped about what we can expect from the star.
In an interview for the September 2022 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine the Girls Trip actress revealed that she is very careful about the projects and companies she aligns herself with. "I've turned down, s**t, I've turned down $10 million just to do a post because it didn't represent my brand.” “I turned down $10 million because my soul is worth more than that to me. My spirit, my integrity, how I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror every day...I'd rather be flat broke than get money to do something that makes me feel like s**t."

Getting your period is never fun, but it is especially not fun in the summer. Every single person with a uterus has a tale of woe or two, from ruined white bikini pants to an unwelcome tampon-shaped pool floaty moment. For many of us, it has meant a whole week stuck shoreline, waiting for Auntie Flo to do her thing. Now, not to sound like one of those cheesy tampon ads, but those days are over. Introducing period swimwear from WUKA – one-pieces and bikini bottoms made with water-repellent outer
I’ve never paid much attention to cryptocurrency, not least because I never quite understood this made-up virtual money. People who evangelise about it tend to be the sort of po-faced young men who believe in online conspiracy theories and the benefits of a keto diet. Cryptocurrency: Has the Bubble Burst? (Channel 4) did little to disabuse me of this notion. It’s always nice to have one’s blind prejudices confirmed.
Anne Heche, the Hollywood actress who has died after a car crash earlier this week, lived a life framed by triumph and tragedy. For a heartbeat in the late 1990s, she was among the most bankable female stars in tinsel town, with roles opposite Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco, Harrison Ford in Six Days, Seven Nights and a young Joaquin Phoenix in Return to Paradise.
The actress, singer, and songwriter will receive the Virtuoso Award at the awards show on 13 August. Hollywood Critics Association founder Scott Menzel said in a statement of Mandy's eligibility for the award: “Mandy Moore has transformed from a pop superstar to an actress to a director… Moore's talent is undeniable, and her work on This Is Us solidifies that as she was able to combine all of her talents within this final chapter...”, Scott Menzel / Statement. Dulcé Sloan will host the 13 August ceremony - a night dedicated to broadcast and cable related awards.
How do you film a UFO? It’s a tricky business. They’re fast and peskily elusive: flitting across the skyline or pretending to be clouds. The one haunting the Californian ranch of the OJ and Emerald – played by Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya – in Jordan Peele’s sci-fi horror Nope, is especially camera-shy. It jams electronics, so their fancy security cameras are useless. But they have a secret weapon: an analogue, hand-cranked camera. It gets them the impossible: an extraterrestrial on film, “the

George Ezra was standing outside a pub recently, as he is wont to do, when he and his mates got talking to a group of 60-something blokes. They hadn’t recognised him, because nobody ever recognises him, but talk soon turned to what they all do for a living. It meant the 29-year-old had to reveal he earns his crust as one of the most successful British musicians of the past decade. Or, at least, say he is George Ezra.
