Hand in hand they enter Libra and the mood changes from worrisome and, at times, bitchy, to desiring and working for harmony and peace
MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA ON 14TH SEPTEMBER
Taking a step back from the details and seeing the bigger picture…which might bring happiness
Mercury in Libra is the diplomat par excellence, smooth talking is the new way of expressing oneself after 3 weeks in fault-finding Virgo and in Libra Mercury manages to insult in nice friendly way too! The cons to this placement however are that decisions are difficult to make in a sign that loves balance and conflicts and confrontations are often sidestepped in a way to accommodate other peoples’ views.
Mercury will make the following harsh aspects during its stay in Libra:
22nd September: square Saturn at 14° – reality is never as black as our thoughts or plans could become real
26th September: square retrograde Pluto – words pack a punch as hidden or previously unspoken thoughts come to consciousness
then we have:
VENUS ENTERS LIBRA ON 15TH SEPTEMBER
Needing to find a balance as we process the changes….
Venus enters one of its home signs on the 15th of September and will remain there the 8th of October.
Here the planet takes on a more rational stance in Airy Libra with peace and harmony being of utmost importance as it endeavours to keep an even keel (Taurus, its other home sign is a much more sensual placement).
Some keywords for Libra might be: impartial, balanced, diplomatic, charming, tasteful, indecisive, flirtatious, peaceable and compromising.
In Libra, Venus tends towards compromise and harmony in relationships but it also has problems deciding who and what it really desires or if it’s even worth rocking the boat and making a choice.
Venus will make the following aspects during its stay in Libra:
25th September: square Saturn at 13° – feeling lonely or destitute may be part of the picture but also taking responsibility for our own finances could be a focal point of this day too
30th September: square retrograde Pluto at 20° – feeling the power of love or losing your control over it
