LIBRA - "I BALANCE/PLAY FAIR, THEREFORE I AM."
Mercury moves into Libra on Friday, September 29, 2017 at 8:43 PM EDT until Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 3:59 AM EDT. That's 19 days of Mercury in Libra, which is just about right. Mercury moves through all 12 Sun Signs pretty darn fast, but not as quickly as the Moon does spending only 2 to 2-1/2 days in a sign where as Mercury spends about 17 or 18 days in a sign before it moves on to the next sign.
Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
This Mercury in Libra transit focuses on the right relations with people. In fact, the psychology of 'right relationships' is going to be a bigger topic of conversation and investigation right now. Did you know that Mercury in Libra makes it easier to understand astrology? Happiness in relationships is very important during this transit. In fact, the unhappy relationships that are not working will be easier for both parties to release simply because relationship happiness is so important right now. Letting go of a non-working relationship and giving up whatever you were clinging to in that relationship is going to be a bargain compared to what you will get once you release the energy.
Mercury in Libra causes us to become more curious about relationships and thinking about the behavioral patterns in relationships. Good communications and happiness in relationships takes on higher importance as we begin studying our relationship communication patterns. This creates a desire for a mental partnership with easy communication because of our interest in what others think.
Since Libra rules fair play and justice, then we can count on seeing more individuals becoming vocal about injustices. Not to mention this transit is very Good for anything legal and those in the legal profession.
Mercury in Libra intensely dislikes crude, coarse or crass behavior and speech. Those who use curse words reflexively will probably be called out by the first person standing by. This type of behavior will be socially unacceptable.
Since this transit is more concerned about right relations with people, then studies that have to do with the study of people become more popular. This might be astrology, arbitration, counseling, sales, marketing, negotiating, the legal profession, public relations, sociology and psychology. Anything that studies or accounts for human behavior and what makes others tick will take on a heightened interest. Being able to communicate in these fields is vital. There is a strong curiosity as to what others think, so much so that there is a need to work with others on a mental level, not necessarily on an intellectual level.
This transit makes an excellent diplomat and peacemaker, who often acts as a go-between in relationships. This would be someone like a mediator, negotiator, counselor or lawyer. This energy is great for putting others at ease. While arguments and strong debates could prove to be upsetting, the outcome will likely be harmonious if Mercury in Libra is involved and has anything to say about it. [Keep reading . . .]
Mercury in Libra is not aggressive, but if there is an injustice going down, then Mercury in Libra will be there to prosecute and make certain that scales even out and justice is served. Mercury in Libra can't let the scales be tipped out of alignment, especially where there is an injustice. Communication is Good and dealings are honest and forthright. Strong principles and mental discipline are also strengthened during this transit. This will also cause one to expect the same out of others, but remember, others have their own chart and Mercury as well, so expectations may prove disappointing. Go ahead and hold yourself to your standards and then hope for the best from others.
There is due consideration to all sides of a formal argument before a decision is made. Just like in a courtroom, so will you be weighing all sides before rendering your decision. At some point during the Mercury in Libra transit will you find yourself feeling like judge and jury. Take your time because channeled inappropriately could lead to indecisive non-action, which results in a missed opportunity. This transit does not usually make bad decisions as it is thoughtful in its approach to problems.
Those who are well-read or who have developed themselves in the areas of higher thought are quite capable of profundity (deep thought). Those who are not as mentally developed may agree with those around them just to be on the side of popularity or to be accepted.
Mercury in Libra seeks an association with refined minds, honest interests, clean reputations, excellent manners and social skills. Those who are crude in behavior and have uncouth manners you will not be able to get away from them fast enough. In fact, you will fall all over yourself just trying to get away.
This transit is sensitive to personal appearances including hygiene and manners, because Mercury is the natural ruler of picky picky picky Virgo and also the ruler of body language expert Gemini. Libra is the sign of beautiful appearances. When someone is being socially inappropriate in style, communication, body language or appearance, this would be considered a social affront (offense).
Saturn is exalted in the sign of Libra causing one to be firm, stern and hardworking. Stay Astrologized™. Now click your Sun Sign below and go to your Monthly Horoscope to read how it impacts your entire Sun Sign.
