Scanning the Planets: Mercury Moves Into Libra

Mercury in Libra

Kindness comes easy with mental Mercury in the sign of the Scales

Communication planet Mercury moves into fair and sociable Libra on August 27, 2015, putting us in a much gentler frame of mind than we’ve been in since Mercury moved into critical Virgo at the beginning of the month.

Mental Mercury becomes so much more fair-minded while in airy Libra that we can’t help but communicate our thoughts more effectively, see everyone’s differing points of view, and generally just get along better with others.

If your thinking has been too sharp for the past few weeks and it’s been causing trouble in personal relationships, things should become more peaceful now. This is a time for honesty and patience and soft-spoken words, so we all have a much better chance of being heard and understood.

In fact, if you’ve had any misunderstandings or fights, or if you’re holding a long-term grudge with someone, this is a good time to resolve it. Libra loves to build bridges and connect us with each other, so it’s truly possible you’ll be better able to overcome your differences during this time.

One challenge of this kind transit is the tendency to be too nice. Can one ever be too nice, you ask? Well, yes, when it interferes with being truthful. Don’t sugar coat things or withhold just to avoid rocking the boat. Speak the truth while Mercury is in Libra, because even if you disagree with someone during this time, they’ll get where you’re coming from.

Weekly Astrology: April 6-12, 2014

Think fast! Communication speeds up this week…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of mercury, astrology, Aries

Rash decisions and impulsive conversations may be the norm this week, and all the way through April 23.

But when it comes to romance, this week promises a fairy tale ending for everyone — or at least the perception of one.

Monday, April 7: Mercury in Aries

On Monday, communication planet Mercury will enter Aries, where he’ll remain until April 23. With the planet of thoughts and ideas in fast-paced Aries, you can bet you’ll have a stronger ability to think on your feet and react with decision to anything life throws your way.

Unfortunately, while you will have conviction, you may not have precision. That’s because Aries is known for jumping head first into situations without actually thinking things through. Be aware!

Tuesday, April 8: Sun in Aries opposite Mars Retrograde in Libra

On Tuesday, the Sun in Aries will oppose action planet Mars. Because Mars is currently retrograde in partnership-oriented Libra, this may be a difficult mix. For one thing, you may want to move ahead with a plan that will affect you and a partner (business or personal). The trouble is that this scheme doesn’t appear to be thought out, so if you proceed it’ll be poorly executed. Or, your partner might resist the idea entirely. Frustrating for sure, but it’s also a gentle reminder that a relationship isn’t all about you. It’s about connecting.

Friday, April 11: Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces

By Friday, however, life becomes enchanting. Love planet Venus will embrace Neptune to remind us that loving unconditionally is the only way to truly love someone. You may have high hopes in the romance department on this day, and yes, some of you will be disappointed. But the hopeless romantic in you will declare that “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

Your Daily Horoscopes for January 4th

We don’t know what to do with our emotions this morning, but the intellectually sharp Aquarius Moon shifts into imaginative Pisces at 11:58 am EST, softening the hard edges of our feelings. Our fantasy life is amplified when the Moon hooks up with otherworldly Neptune, luring us into our dreams. Our expectations may be unrealistic as mischievous Mercury aligns with Neptune, but escape is not an easy option with four planets in stable Capricorn.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may sense the turbulence in front of a big wave of change that’s heading your way, and your uncertainty about the future makes you anxious. Fortunately, you’re not resistant to the lessons you’re learning now, but you would rather move through this phase with as little disruption as possible. Nevertheless, you could waste precious energy trying to maintain your current schedule. It’s smarter to flow with the shifting currents instead of fighting against them. Adaptability is your key to success.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might seek advice from your friends today, especially if you’re having a difficult time cooperating with others in a group situation. It’s challenging to avoid creating adversarial relationships now, yet a combative approach isn’t helpful at all. Consider what your colleagues can offer and what you are willing to surrender in the process. Adopting a more positive attitude is your first step. Successful negotiation requires compromise on both sides.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

If you’re receiving mixed messages from an authority figure today, don’t try to force a resolution yet because there’s probably more people involved than you realize. Your key planet Mercury may be stressing you out now as it aligns with deceptive Neptune. Instead of pushing your agenda onto anyone else, let the situation develop on its own. Your most sensible choice will become apparent once others get a chance to express their desires. Clarity returns when you have all the missing pieces of the puzzle in place.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

The difference between your thoughts and your feelings can be confusing as the current facts pull one way while your desires pull you in another direction. Unfortunately, the incoming data isn’t very reliable now. Something that you know to be true today might turn out to be false tomorrow. Even if you want to trust your rational analysis, it’s smarter to follow your instincts because they can cut through the uncertainty and lead you down the right path.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re fascinated by how powerful your feelings are now, but you secretly long for more stability in your life. Of course, you prefer pleasure to hard work, especially if you’re not having much fun, so you may jump at an intriguing invitation from a friend. Don’t try to talk yourself out of a good time even if you have chores to finish. Taking a break from the intensity of your responsibilities enables you to return with a fresh outlook on life.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might feel overwhelmed by too much information today as your ruling planet Mercury moves through methodical Capricorn. However, it’s challenging to concentrate on mundane reality because your dream world is so vivid now. Someone may pressure you to make a choice but try not to make any final decisions yet. So much is happening that you probably will want to change your mind in a day or two. Leave your options open as long as you can for the best possible outcome.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

There may be an important event on your calendar today but something unexpected could happen that requires you to postpone it. You possibly crammed too much into your day because you felt pressured to perform. But don’t waste time worrying what you’ll do if your plans fall apart; you might simply have to reschedule other commitments. If you surf the changing tides with an optimistic attitude, others will recognize your position and support your efforts.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your work ethic is being tested for a couple of days as practical concerns force you to modify your approach. You could run into a conflict with a close friend today, but don’t assume that you have done anything wrong. There may be trouble if you make a decision that is solely based on your values, without considering how others might react. You’ll be more effective if you’re willing to change your plans for the sake of expediency. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t have to compromise your beliefs to please anyone else.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You have a clear sense of the future now and know exactly what you need to do to be successful. However, circumstances grow complicated if you run into an unexpected obstacle in your path. Managing the situation may not be an easy task, yet it’s crucial to give it your best shot. Don’t go for the quick fix today; instead, set your intentions on finding a lasting solution that works for everyone involved. Keep your chin up and your eyes on the horizon as you push to achieve your goals.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your instincts might take you in the opposite direction of your logic today. To make matters more complex, your new plan may be contrary to everyone else’s beliefs, too. You haven’t picked an easy course to take because of the intense resistance you could encounter. Nevertheless, it’s still smarter to follow your intuition now and leave the more rational approach for another day. Ultimately, others will admire you for walking your talk and reaching for your dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Unfortunately, you can’t trust your senses today, making it difficult for you to distinguish reality from the illusion. Trickster Mercury is scrambling messages as it travels through your 12th House of Imagination. Using your fantasies to complete the picture may be the best you can do, but the results might be misleading. You could convince yourself of nearly anything now, so it’s better to wait for clarity to return before making any critical decisions. In the meantime, relax and give yourself permission to indulge in a bit of creative daydreaming, instead.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A friend or associate may offer you information that contradicts what you already know. You could be so confused today that you don’t know who to trust or which way to turn. Although you feel pressured to choose sides in a conflict that is unfolding around you, it’s safer not to get involved in other people’s dramas now. Wait a few days and see how the situation is progressing before supporting either position. Stepping back to do your own thing might just be your wisest move.

Tarotcom Staff     Tarotcom Staff on the topics of sagittarius, mercury, astrology

 

Open your mind, but hold your tongue — that’s the best advice we have when communication planet Mercury moves back into bold and sometimes reckless Sagittarius on December 4, 2013.

Mercury is a bit of wild-card in Sagittarius. That’s because Mercury is all about thoughts and words, and Sagittarius is all about action. This translates into a time when we may find ourselves speaking too soon, accidentally saying rude things, or spouting off things that aren’t true.

If you’re prone to telling tall tales or getting your facts wrong, or if you know anyone like that, it’s going to be exacerbated now. We’re all advised to try harder to think before we speak and to consider others’ feelings more. But there’s an upside to Mercury in Sagittarius, too.

Because Sagittarius is so open-minded and adventurous, our thoughts will become more expansive, too. We might start thinking about travel or going back to school or starting a new job. Sagittarius is a visionary, so our minds will wander far and wide during this time.

Make big plans for December! With Mercury in Sagittarius until December 24, it’s a great month for feeling confident, thinking positive and doing something exciting.
