Conversations sweeten now that the communication planet, Mercury, is taking up residence in the balanced and fair stars of Libra on September 1. Our diplomatic skills will come in handy for the next few weeks. It's all about seeing the other person's point of view.

The key to success is in our ability to adapt, accommodate and adjust to the needs of others. There's always more room for compromise if we're willing to find the grace and beauty of putting ourselves in the other person's shoes.

Mercury in Libra also reminds us that speech and word choice should be beautiful rather than brusque. It doesn't mean we cannot argue a point or get our message across with our true authentic signature. What it does mean is that we now have the ability to consider the affects our words will have on either strengthening the connection or breaking it. Does this message add to the harmony and flow between us or does it create a rift? These are the questions and reflections to employ in honoring Libra's quest for beauty and balance.

Another important consideration is whether or not it's fair to say such-and-such or if it's just our own aggression spouting off at the mouth. Taking the time to really find out where the other person is coming from and then speaking to those needs first has tremendous value and beauty in it now. Words should uplift and make the interactions we have with others more sweet and lovely. This is the way Venus would have it.

Of course, while Mercury is in the sign of Justice, we'll have no qualms about speaking out against inequality or lack of fairness in any given situation. This is the one exception to Libra's normally refined and cautious approach to communication.
