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.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 31

August 2014 ends on a somewhat dualistic note as favorable and unfavorable alignments vie for supremacy. Good news materializes very early as the Sun makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with productivity-booster Ceres (1:51AM) while the Moon makes its monthly union with sisterhood-champion and safety-security expert Vesta (2:26AM). Healing forces are also back on the march — thanks to the Moon trine to Chiron in water signs (7:53AM) and hopefully complemented by Mercury in a contra-parallel formation with Chiron (2:34PM). On the challenging end of the astro-psychic spectrum, watch out for shadowy vibes trying to undermine your forward progress as Venus makes a caustic, 45-degree tie with Pallas (4:50AM), the Moon unites with sometimes restrictive Saturn (12:11PM), Mercury follows the lead of Venus by forming a frictional, 45-degree link with Vesta (5:14PM), and the Moon adds another alarm-bell by uniting with the red planet Mars (6:52PM). You can chalk all of this up to the need to take the good with the bad, and pray that the good is much more reliable and durable than those cosmic conditions that try to weaken human ethics and morals. Recall that it was only six days ago that Mars and Saturn united in Scorpio, and now the Moon is highlighting that conjunction by individually merging with both of these potentially contentious planets. The bottom line is that wisdom dictates the need to avoid bickering with loved ones and to cultivate a firm peace of mind, perhaps through the use of affirmations and meditation techniques, in order to sustain your role as a courageous warrior working to promote world goodwill. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Astrology Today: Monday, August 25, 2014 – New Moon

Monday morning the Moon moves into Virgo and immediate conjunction with the Sun. The exact conjunction is the new moon. The new moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, and the new moon ruler, Mercury, sextiles the Mars Saturn conjunction.

The energetic renewal concerns itself with the balance of the grounded mind-body connection and the spirit. What do you know and feel in your bones? What do you believe? These may not be on the same page, but the do have to balance. This is the time to address that.

There is also an emphasis here on physical health and well-being. It’s a good time to put new systems into place.

Earthy Virgo Mercury’s sextile to Mars and Saturn in water translates thought and perception into action, work. It’s likely to be long-term work, but with the combo of Mars and Mercury in aspect to Uranus, it may be preceded by a quick JOLT.

Venus in Leo squares Mars-Saturn. I don’t think the net effect of this is going to feel all that great. And I think it’s going to take some work to turn a profit… real or metaphorical. It’s a work to please aspect, but it can be done.

Mercury opposes Chiron in Pisces. If you ask someone a question, don’t criticize their answer. Perfection stands across from scars. Health stands across from woundedness. The nurse stands across from the patient, but the patient may be an angel in disguise. A little cross contamination goes a long way. Compassionate healing takes place when they mix, on BOTH sides. Each may benefit.

The Venus-Saturn and the Mars-Saturn energies are potent. They’re pointy. Rough. But the new moon is laced with compassion. With the interplay of these energies, this renewal can be magnificent. This may be the push that overcomes inertia and propels one into a new phase.

Your Planet Tracker for August 20th: Mercury In Virgo, Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014

Planet Tracker

Mercury in Virgo

Aug 15, 2014 to Sep 1, 2014

 

Mercury, the planet of communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. Gemini represents the objective airy side of thought, while Virgo is the practical, earthy side. Mercury in Virgo, then, is a time when thought is most likely to be used with efficiency and conversation grounded in reality.

A planet is considered to be strong when in its home sign, one which it is said to rule. This helps direct and refine its energies to higher levels of purity and power. Mercury in Virgo is, therefore, a strong period in which to analyze and criticize with great precision. Taken to its extremes, however, this can become a narrowness of thought that kills imagination and abstraction. Mercury in Virgo often works best after original ideas are born in rough form that can then be polished and refined.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo usually have very sharp minds that readily comprehend complex patterns and fine details. Success, though, comes when this narrow view is balanced with awareness of the big picture and higher orders of reality. The best thinkers are able to move comfortably among various perspectives to give the widest understanding possible.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo include the highly regarded basketball coach Phil Jackson, law professor Alan Dershowitz, Lyndon Johnson, Yasser Arafat, writers H.P. Lovecraft and Truman Capote, astronaut Neil Armstrong, chef Julia Child and spiritual teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The world of music offers composers Claude Debussy and George Gershwin, and singers Bobby Short, Whitney Houston and Madonna. Acting Mercury in Virgos include Dustin Hoffman, Peter O’Toole, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Melanie Griffith, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, Chevy Chase, Lucille Ball and Mae West.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 20th

We are particularly sensitive to the recent emotional shifts once the reflective Moon sinks into moody Cancer at 4:44 am EDT. However, in romance actions speak louder than words with three planets still in affectionate Leo, including amorous Venus. Nevertheless, communicator Mercury requires us to stick with the facts as it speeds through practical Virgo. Acknowledging our feelings is healthy, but keeping them in perspective is even better.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Visions of romance come and go with the wind but you need to express your feelings to manifest the love you seek. Unfortunately, your fear of rejection or commitment may prevent you from acting on your desires today. Your emotions can lead you astray if you let your imagination run wild. Rely on the facts now and not your intuition; cool logic keeps you on track better than chasing a dream.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your uncharacteristic uncertainty prompts you to withhold your true feelings today. You might not feel emotionally safe enough to fully let down your guard out in public. However, you could find unexpected pleasure within the familiar comfort of your own home and family now. Nevertheless, current circumstances keep you busier than you prefer. You can’t change everything to your liking, but making little adjustments throughout the day brings enough progress to keep you happy.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your desire to keep the flow of information moving swiftly along is in direct conflict with complex circumstances that are requiring you to slow the pace down. Although you want to make something happen in the real world, you’re more inclined to spend time in deep contemplation now. Ultimately, you must establish workable priorities by deciding which interactions are useful and which ones can be eliminated. A no-nonsense approach allows you to accomplish more than you expect.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your self-esteem is on the upswing; you want others to notice your talents and appreciate what you have to offer. However, it’s not easy to put your feelings into words while the hypersensitive Moon is traveling through your sign. Instead of sharing too much information about yourself today, process your emotions on your own and then tell your story after you have time to think about it for a while. Waiting a couple of days gives you a chance to fine-tune your message for the optimum impact.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Others may find you quite alluring these days as several planets move through fabulous Leo and your 1st House of Personality, but you can only bend the rules so far. The idea of self-indulgence sounds tempting enough to consider skipping out on your responsibilities. You may seek satisfaction through a quick escape; however, this strategy isn’t a smart idea since the backlash at work could be more intense than you expect. Honoring your commitments offers its own sweet rewards.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your brain has been operating in high gear ever since the weekend when cerebral Mercury moved into your analytical sign. Your senses are sharp and your thinking is clear. Nevertheless, you might still be distracted by your fantasies now, especially if someone is currently showing romantic interest in you. But don’t waste precious time in the pursuit of unrealistic dreams; be rational and do what makes the most sense, instead.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your friends might be more oriented toward building relationships than you are now since your attention is primarily focused on your career ambitions. Nevertheless, you don’t want to lose your existing connections with others. Fortunately, you get along with nearly anyone at work these days because you can perceive unrealized potential everywhere you look. Remember, your current success may require you to keep your feelings under cover, so think carefully about your words before you start to speak. When in doubt, err on the side of silence.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You could feel a little bent out of shape now because you don’t believe that your friends truly understand your intentions. Even if you specifically make a point to tell them about your inner process, they still might jump to the wrong conclusions. Nevertheless, expressing your opinion is still healthier than keeping it bottled up inside. Simply state your side of the story but don’t force the issue; those who care the most will eventually appreciate the secrets you share.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are on the hunt for the perfect travel companion to accompany you on your next great adventure. But even if you’re flying solo, this is a perfect time to plan a special vacation or embark on a quick summer getaway. Nevertheless, you must be careful about how much you disclose today because other people’s expectations may not match up with your desires. Share what you must, but keep your most unconventional thoughts to yourself until you know you are in like company.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Relationships may be playing the cosmic energy out on a battlefield now, especially if your needs go unrecognized by someone you love. You’re tempted to retreat into the safety of your inner world instead of confronting your fear of rejection by asking for what you want. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking a bit of time today to sort out your feelings. Fortunately, communication grows easier over the next few days, enabling you to resolve the current stress sooner than you expect.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Playful interactions between you and someone special may be deliciously sweet now. But it’s not all fun and games, even if you can fire up a new relationship or refuel an old one. There might be underlying tensions that prevent you from feeling emotionally fulfilled. Clear communication is the most essential element. Take a risk and express what’s on your mind. Sharing your dreams opens the door to wonderful possibilities.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may feel as if you’re swimming in an entirely different ocean today, even if you’re still splashing about in the same old pond. Your current disorientation challenges you to balance your starry-eyed idealism with a more practical and grounded approach to life. Don’t rely on anyone to tell you what’s real because talkative Mercury’s presence in your 7th House of Companions allows others to sound more definitive than they really are now. Analyze all the facts, listen to your intuition and then decide for yourself.
