Mercury enters Libra,art, social, justice

Mercury leaves his home sign entering Libra, sign of Relationships August 27, turning RETROGRADE September 17 at 15+ degrees Libra and then Direct at zero degrees of Libra on October 9th. Mercury will need until October 25 to get past its Retrograde stationary point.

Libra is Venus’s sign and the chit chat will be all about our partners, fashion, beauty, the social scene, charm, high culture, the arts, fashion, music, theatre, poetry, literature and gossip. 

Do go to art galleries, and let the air signs natural curiosity take you to new dialogues and presentations based on beauty. Think about your own sense of aesthetics. 

That’s almost two months of the planet of communications keeping us focussed on socializing, relationships, relationships and more relationships.  Mercury in Venus’s sign  will certainly want everything to be NICE, friendly, diplomatic, concerned with social justice and connecting with others.

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 them 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.  

During Mercury’s Retrograde phase yes we continue the theme of having to go back and review, redo, renegotiate, those ideas, communications and dialogues again and again. There will be lots of political debates. A good time to redecorate, renovate, and get a beauty make-over.

Be very careful during Mercury Retrograde of your words. The shadow side of Mercury Retrograde may make Libra’s finding themselves making faux pas’s and destroying liaisons or reputations. 

Saturn will be in Sagittarius the sign of speaking the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you having hoof in mouth disease. Be especially mindful on  October 9th as Mercury turns Direct and sextiles Saturn. The sexy sextile is in effect from  October 1st until October 19.  

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. 

Justice, democracy, freedom and equality will be big topics during these next two months. Major laws may be rewritten or repealed around immigration in many countries. Big legal cases, the Ashley Madison one in particular, and many other imbalances in social justice will be the topics of the day.

The end is near, Sun square Saturn.

Get yer Ya ya’s out now as the Sun at 28 degrees Leo is squaring mean Mr. Mustard Saturn, Friday evening.
Be careful of having an overly loud exuberant last degrees of Leo party on Friday night as you will be sure to be shut down by the cops.
Sun in Leo is ultimately Sunny and Saturn in Scorpio will rain on your parade. 
Believe in yourself, don’t let the inner critic get you down, your old childhood  unconscious controlling dad or mom. You are a grwon up now and can shine from your own source. 
Here’s how to werk it;
Celebrate Saturn, have an oldies party, celebrate some oldsters, take your beloved Granny out to a fine dinner. 
Pay your taxes finally. 
Drink some fine vintage champagne. 
Celebrate the last degrees of Leo by growing up. Leo has the big kid energy which sometimes needs maturing. 
Late degree Leo Leo’s can look forwards to be taken seriously. Promotions, and taking possession of a new home, getting married and signing on the dotted line for any long-term serious project is recommended.
There will be rewards for those who worked their asses off while Saturn was Retrograde in Scorpio from  June 14-August 2nd.  If you really seriously got your self very mucky from stewing in your own dark shadowy juices during these times and have felt, understood, taken responsibility for, and transformed all that old crap that was holding you back then congrats! 
YOU get to graduate.

28+ degrees Leo was associated with the Archangel Raphael for the last 2,160 years. Raphael is the angel of the heart.  For many people there have been disappointing break-ups, losses, regret, shocking revelations of cheating, the Ashley Madison leak for one during this time. Saturn is karma and for many the lessons are over and done with. Saturn in Scorpio is endings, death. 
Take stock of the Good, the Light and optimistic SUN in LEO and the dark, neglected, shadows. 
The Sun is Life and light,Saturn in Scorpio is Death.
Let go of that which does not serve you and move on. 
27 more days until Saturn enters Sagittarius. YAY! 
The focus will be more optimistic, honest, ethical, humorous, judicious, open, intellectual, casual, philosophical and fiery.
I will be welcoming Saturn into Sagittarius in Sedona Arizona on that date and I invite you to join me for  pow wow on the red rocks. 
Scorpio moon aspects squares Venus –
hidden love secrets come out in to the open. Better hide them if you haven’t been discovered yet. 
Moon and Uranus make awkward bedfellows
trying new things may not be so comfortable.
