Mercury in Libra

Ruby’s Astro Weekly Update – “Shifts”


The week ahead seems to be somewhat better, but especially starting September 18th, this can be the best day of the week. Some folks will have a run of good luck on the 19th as well. This is a good time to launch something new, as it could be quite successful. Did you hear that folks, it’s a Green Light to get things moving, start anything you would like, just watch for the VOID MOONS this week, as there are a few lengthy ones.


On September 16 & 17, mental Mercury gets into a challenging opposition with wounded healer Chiron. This can bring up feelings of trauma from our past, as old wounds can resurface. We can be more focused on the past and what we should’ve done or what we could’ve changed, old memories playback through our minds. As we replay these missed opportunities and start to feel older wounds, we can also find ourselves either biting our tongue or straight-up lying about something that happened. Our motive is actually to not hurt others feelings and to protect them and ourselves.


Mercury Enters Libra

This planet of communication and perspective Mercury moves into more charming Libra from September 14th -October 3rd. When Mercury is in Libra we tend to be more on the friendly side but also we are diplomatic, which means we are careful about what we say and perhaps a little more cautious. Some folks will be somewhat false during this time just to keep things peaceful. In our relationships with others, we are more rational in our way of thinking. So it’s a good time for negotiations as we are better at seeing both sides to any given situation. While Mercury is in Libra it can be more challenging to make decisions on the fly, as we tend to ponder over things more so than usual, so it might just be more difficult to make up our minds. We also can struggle with asserting ourselves expressing ourselves because we don’t want to start any kind of trouble! For some folks, the fear of stirring up problems can be almost debilitating, to the point where you just can’t speak up for yourself at all! This is a good time for taking other people’s opinions and points of view into consideration as we can be fair and our conclusions sound.


On September 19 motivational Mars makes a lovely connection to transformational Pluto. This can make it a day of success for many of you. So the 18th and 19th can very special as it is a day when we can manifest what we want or need.


September 18th
SATURN DIRECT FROM RETROGRADE

This is an extremely important time in our lives folks where we can look back to what we’ve done and our accomplishments over the last several months. We finally may catch a break even though this energy is quite stagnant right now. So take a look back to what was going on in your life at the end of April of 2019 when Saturn first went Retrograde. How much progress have you made since then? How much did you grow or evolve from your experiences? Many of you have felt stuck since then, but that’s all shifting now. Some of you are already getting rewarded for your hard work, and now we all can continue to move forward.


Starting September 21, Jupiter makes a tense square to foggy Neptune for its final time in a series of three meetings. Whatever has been going on in your life since last January and then again in mid-June will finally come to its strongest point and then to its completion. If you think back to those times you might be able to connect some dots, but remember under this influence everything is not as it appears to be, and problems can seem larger than what they really are.


The Morning Star turns into the Evening Star!

On September 26th, Venus shifts from being the Morning Star to the Evening Star! Venus has been rising in the early morning, but it shifts and will once again rise in the evening time.

This is a very significant Cosmic shift. When Venus rises in the morning, she is almost invisible. And all the parts of our lives that Venus influences seem to have issues. It has been studied that when Venus is in its Morning Star cycle there are problems. Venus seems to put out more negative energy during this time. This position causes challenges within our relationships, of course, and often things involving our finances, so partnerships and marriages can have major breakdowns under this influence. Relationships seem to be more tense than usual, and often we see folks have more money problems, as it seems like money is constantly going out! Single folks seem to have a tougher time meeting soulmate like partners also.

But when Venus turns back into the Evening Star, the energies shift and love and money seem to just flow better, and we tend to hear more good news. Our lives seem to start picking back up once again and big developments start to happen! Plus the Goddess herself, Venus is visible in the night sky once again. So for whatever reason when she’s rising as the Evening Star, Venus’s energies are far better and this has an impact on all of us. Hopefully, we will start seeing some good stuff manifest once again under her glowing light.

Venus Enters Libra

This week Venus is in the spotlight as she also goes back into her own sign of Libra. This shift is also the beginning of the Stellium in Virgo breaking apart, which for some is a welcome relief, but I will have more about that later. For the next three and a half weeks all you Sun in Libra’s out there might have an easier going time. But all the Zodiac Signs will notice people are more kind and easier going towards each other. This is really good energy to make plans involving someone special, so romantic getaways can go quite well as we can get some much-needed space together to concentrate on our relationships.


On September 16 & 17, mental Mercury gets into a challenging opposition with wounded healer Chiron. This can bring up feelings or trauma from our past, old wounds resurface and there’s a lot of focus on the past and what we should’ve done or could’ve changed starts running through our minds. As we replay missed opportunities and old wounds in our minds we can also find ourselves either biting our tongue or lying about something that happened. Our motive is actually to not hurt others feelings, but this can cause us bigger problems if we are not careful.


Have a great week folks,

Mercury Enters Libra

libra-peacemaker-or-troublemaker-L-jQhPfe
Mercury shifts into the sign of the scales, Libra, today, this aspect is from September 21 – October 9.
This will have us thinking about the patterns we follow in our relationships. but our relationships will be of the utmost importance.
Our thoughts tend to lighten up a bit when Mercury is in Libra. The positive vibes of this influence help us feel more friendly and diplomatic with others, so it’s a good time to think of ways to improve your negotiation skills. However, it is equally just as important to not be false out of fear of not keeping the peace. Under this energy, we do tend to shy away from any kind of conflict unless we are starting something. It can also be difficult when we must assert ourselves, we can be easily accommodating and take others opinions as fact, there can be a fear of looking like the bad guy and we don’t like others thinking of us negatively.
Our minds are more rational during this time so we can be fair. However, this energy can have you changing your mind quite a bit, because you can see both sides to any given situation or story now. It can be a challenge just to make a quick decision, because you may end up just sitting around pondering what you have seen or heard. However, this is a good time to take into consideration other folks points of view, as we more inclined to arrive at a fair and equal judgment or conclusions.
Even though under this Libra energy, the sign of diplomacy we prefer to create harmony without too much static, do not let that prevent you from dealing with the real issues and getting down and dirty about it if you have to. Libra energy can help us observe the world around us and study other people and their behaviors, so a good mystery can be extremely intriguing during this time.
So what does Mercury in Libra mean for you and your relationships? Oh, it means a lot! Libra is the sign of relationships, it rules over our one-on-one relationships and partnerships of all kinds. We can learn more of the truth around our relationships and what really is going on. If you’ve had any problems or tension with close friends, partners, or business partnerships this phase can help you get down to what is really causing any problems. Because you can finally figure out some of these issues, and possibly fix a broken or be done, so at least you won’t be stuck anymore. This is a great time to work on fixing the patterns of co-dependency as well because it can be toxic!
Even though Libra is the sign of diplomacy and prefers to create harmony without too much static, don’t let that prevent you from dealing with the real issues and don’t be afraid to get down and dirty about it if you have to.

“Mercury enters Libra”

The planet Mercury rules over how we think and the way we process information, it has been in the sign of Virgo for an extended amount of time due to Mercury’s last Retrograde cycle, under normal circumstances this was a positive energy that helped us really take the time to sort out the details of our lives. However, it has been slowing us down for too long and we need a shift like with any of the Signs of the Zodiac, (too much of a good thing.) Today Mercury shifts gears and comes up for air and into harmony-seeking Libra, through Oct 17th.

This breath of fresh air means we tend to think more rationally, especially in our relationships. And it’s a good time to resolve any recent conflicts, arguments, or misunderstandings as the communication planet enters peaceful Libra, this energy is here to teach us all how to just get along. Libra is the peace-maker of the Zodiac and Mercury is the communicator, so with the world in so much turmoil over the last few months, this could really help some things get better. Some folks will just be more willing to apologize, make amends, or extend some sort of peaceful resolutions.

We can be diplomatic and friendly, as we strive to be fairer. It’s the time to think about working on your negotiation skills as we are better at seeing both sides to situations. Under this influence we also may be indecisive due to seeing the whole picture so much more clearly, (especially with the Sun also now in Libra). It may be a struggle just making up our minds.

We can get a bit carried away trying to accommodate others especially our partners, but we want to keep balance, harmony, and peace. However, this can be a good time to consider the other side or others points of views. This is a wonderful time to get together with friends and attend something fun.
