Mercury in Libra

Sep 1, 2014 to Sep 27, 2014

 

Mercury, the communication planet, should be feeling comfortable in the sociable air sign of Libra. The air element is very much about the mind and communication, so it fits very nicely with Mercury’s meaning. Libra is about building bridges and overcoming differences. It recognizes that there is more than one side to any question and seeks to harmonize opposing points of view. Diplomacy, then, is likely to be featured at this time, both in the larger public arena and in our personal lives.

Mercury in Libra can soften speech to ensure peaceful relationships. It’s necessary at times to bring down the noise level so that both sides can be heard. This is, therefore, a good time to heal wounds caused by misunderstandings or different views of reality.

The challenge of this period is that the tendency for being nice can sometimes overwhelm the necessity of being truthful. Being kind then becomes a barrier to real communication. Ideally, we can recognize (in Libra’s well-balanced manner) that there are many ways to connect with one another, and that agreement is not the only one. Expressing opposing points of view with respect and openness is a terrific way to strengthen any relationship. It is about being fair enough to yourself and others to both listen and be heard.

Famous folks born with Mercury in Libra include singers Bruce Springsteen, Olivia Newton-John, Cass Elliott, Art Garfunkel and ultra-charming Julio Iglesias. Actors Jeremy Irons, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Reeves, Richard Harris and Susan Sarandon are part of this group.

Sports stars Doug Flutie, Brett Favre and Scotty Pippen were born with Mercury in Libra, too. Writers Carrie Fisher, Stephen King, Michael Crichton and Ken Kesey have entertained us with their thoughts. David Copperfield has shown sleight of hand, Evel Knievel a crazy kind of courage and Larry Flynt more than we really want to see. Mercury in Libra is also found in the charts of artist Peter Max, comedian-activist Dick Gregory, director Penny Marshall and poet-statesman Vaclav Havel.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, September 10th

We want our actions to be practical today. However, we may have a hard time differentiating reality from what we desire. Although the ambitious Aries Moon encourages us to be proactive, we could build our plans on unrealistic visions as magnetic Venus opposes surreal Neptune. Our perceptions aren’t as accurate as we believe because of this heightened state of fantasy. We are drawn to experiences beyond the physical now, including magical encounters with music, poetry and nature.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you often know exactly what you want in love, your romantic goals aren’t very clear now. You could idealize your desires today, which is a lot of fun as long as you don’t assume they must be fulfilled. Too many concrete expectations hinder your current metaphysical journey. However, going with the flow may reward you with a very beautiful experience that can resonate in your heart for a long time to come.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may misread an emotional interaction today unless you’re paying careful attention to the subtle cues in every conversation. You might be feeling some ambiguity with respect to a developing relationship. Allowing your thoughts to wander around in the realms of possibility, although an enjoyable distraction, won’t necessarily lead to personal satisfaction. Instead, focus on the most immediate issues at hand in order to set your train back on the well-traveled tracks of reality.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Although you plan to discuss practical issues at work today, your colorful fantasies are so enticing that you have trouble staying on topic. You may assume your position is clear but your coworkers might misunderstand your message. Unfortunately, you could convince yourself that further explanation isn’t necessary. However, it’s easy to avoid problems by unfolding your ideas one at a time and asking for feedback as you go along. There’s no reason to bury your dreams as long as you keep them in check while discussing more mundane matters.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your schedule could fall apart at the seams today if you don’t allow time for everything that needs to be accomplished. You might not be as prepared as you prefer as people aren’t sharing their expectations with you. Instead of floundering your way through the day in uncertainty, ask concrete questions to receive specific answers. Your friends and associates may surprise you with their down-to-earth responses that can save the day.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You could be living in a bubble of fantasy, even if you believe your self-assessment is grounded in reality. It may even be challenging to get a clear handle on what you can bring to the table. Unfortunately, facts are colored by your feelings now, and it’s nearly impossible to separate your objective perceptions from subjective opinions unless you make a conscious decision to do so. Thankfully, the potential for creating meaning in your life grows stronger when your intuitive visions are fully integrated.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Normally, you can deftly manage the details of a complex project and keep all the separate tasks in order. However, it may be more effective now to save your critical analysis for another time. Instead of trying to limit your thoughts, give yourself permission to space out and explore unknown territory. Your imagination is your greatest asset today, so don’t be afraid to put it to work. The most creative solutions to your current dilemmas will be the ones that arise out of unstructured thinking. Listening to your intuition allows you to tap into your unexpressed ingenuity.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are quite introspective today as your key planet Venus takes center stage in your 12th House of Privacy. If you must spend the day with others, you can still withdraw into your dream world while appearing as socially astute as ever. However, balancing your work obligations with your current desire to be alone might be a challenge. It’s not an either / or proposition; you can collaborate with your peers and still retreat into your imagination for inspiration whenever you wish.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You may have a very specific idea about which activities you want to share with your friends now, but your job might not give you the freedom you desire. You’re not one to run out on your responsibilities once you have made a heartfelt commitment. However, you can rearrange your schedule to finish up your work early without negatively impacting your productivity. Following through on your word is vital to your integrity, but so is pursuing your dreams.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Conditions on the home front can be all too confusing, but they aren’t your biggest problem today. Things are not as they appear now and it’s tricky to gauge the relative importance of a particular thought. Taking a clever idea and turning it into an overly complicated strategy won’t make it any more successful. Keep your message simple and succinct. Misunderstandings that come to light in the next few days will make you glad that you strive for simplicity today.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Other people attempt to use ambitious schemes to lure you away from your previous commitments today. Unfortunately, you could grow overwhelmed if you can’t control your personal desires. There are days when you can build the road as well as travel along it. However, today’s planetary patterns are meant for exploring territories that are off the beaten track. Spend a bit of time wandering around, knowing that you’ll be back on the highway and heading toward your destination again in just a few days.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although you have specific goals and a concrete plan in place, you can’t seem to find the inner resolve to achieve your goals today. People can see a gentler side of you as your hidden emotional tenderness slips through the cracks in your defenses. Instead of fighting it, consciously let others inside your otherwise impenetrable walls. Vulnerability is your strength now, not your weakness.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Today you might fall in love with a beautiful person, a spiritual practice or a fleeting vision. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that you can tell the difference between reality and fantasy now. Nevertheless, fact and fiction might just morph into a magical moment that opens your heart. Don’t try to figure out what’s happening; just relax and enjoy the experience. Untangle the threads in the tapestry of life on another day after the clouds of illusion drift away.

Mercury In Libra

Mercury in Libra

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

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of mercury, libra, insight, astrology

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.

Planet Tracker for July 4th: Moon in Libra, July 3 – 6

Planet Tracker

Moon in Libra

Jul 3, 2014 to Jul 6, 2014

You’re Ginger Rogers today. And everyone and everything you meet is Fred Astaire. During this Libra Moontime think “grace in space.” If you meet an obstacle or encounter resistance, dance like you expected it to be there. Libra’s skill is knowing just how to receive whatever shows up. The trick is recognizing its beauty, which is all there is to diplomacy and charm. Any “couple tension” on this Moon is especially instructive. With as much neutrality as you can muster, examine the feedback loop of offering and receiving. If your lower back hurts, you might be doing too much or expecting too much from others. Court the idea that all the support you need lies within, as in a yoga balancing posture. This Moon asks, “Can you keep the peace and your balance at the same time?” The atmosphere is light and neutral today. It’s okay to be indecisive. Enjoy the ability to dance (gracefully) around the possibilities.

Overview of Your Weekend Love Horoscopes for July 4 – 6

Weekend Love Horoscope

July 4-6: Romantic Fireworks

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

Fourth of July weekend promises not to disappoint when it comes to romantic fireworks, although they may not be the kind you’re hoping for.

On Friday, the Moon will enter Libra, and it remains there until it moves into Scorpio on Sunday afternoon. On Friday, there will be a potent opposition between the Sun and Pluto. Issues of security and responsibility will need to be addressed between you and your mate. If your security is threatened, you might retaliate by choosing to renege on an obligation to your partner. This approach will only cause the nasty fireworks to blast off.

On Saturday, the Moon in relationship-oriented Libra will be at a tug of war with both Pluto and Uranus, making the outcome unpredictable. Thankfully, the last connection the Moon makes in Libra is a trine to Mercury early Sunday morning, so you can count on talking about your feelings without hesitation. Sunday afternoon’s intense Scorpio Moon will support going deeper in love — if you dare!
