Mercury, Mighty little messenger of gods, communicator, trickster, Lord of merchants and thieves, enters Libra, sign of Relationships and Justice, governed by VENUS, is in LIBRA  September 14- October 3rd.

Libra, the 7th sign is associated with marriage traditionally but includes all relationships with “others” as in selfie and others, including all social and business relationship interactions. It is a masculine Air sign, ruled by Goddess of Love Venus. So the focus will be on lots of chatting about our partners, fashion, beauty, social networking, media, culture, the arts, fashion, music, theatre, poetry, literature. and gossip. 

This is a good time to analyze our romantic patterns.  What is your pattern? Where do you need to balance your own inner masculine and feminine energies?

Think about your own sense of aesthetics.  Mercury in Venus’s sign will certainly want everything to be NICE, friendly, diplomatic, concerned with social justice and connecting with others. 

We need DIPLOMACY and balance now in the World which has been made to become more polarized.

This is the time to seek BALANCE, LIBRA is not naturally peaceful but must find that still point. We may be cementing alliances, making social contacts and contracts and sparkling as the hostess or host with the mostest. Lots of wonderful soirees and parties coming up.

Libra’s downside is indecision, caught between two opposing forces and wanting to please, Libra tends to lean on what others think and can become superficial and losing the sense of their own power and choices.  

The SCALES Of JUSTICE are Modern Libra’s symbol. The Statue of Liberty is the modern version of Libra. Originally these were the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales. This is the time of the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, the balance of day and night, of the masculine and Feminine. We need a new balance in love, sexual politics, culture, wealth and the world.
