Mercury Enters Libra: Justice For All

When Mercury enters the sign of justice (September 16 through October 5) our minds shift towards all that feels unfair and out of balance in our lives. Whether we apply this focus to the world-at-large or upon the inequalities in our relationships, the lens of our perceptual field will now hone in on the “other” and where things are out of proportion.

Reciprocity is key when dealing with Libra -- the give-and-take in all commerce, conversation and exchange. This phase can also generate loads of indecision and confusion as we try to achieve that ever-elusive balancing of the scales in our minds. Keeping our heart lighter than a feather during this time is a good reminder of the deep wisdom teachings from the Scales of Maat. Too much thinking and the heart can grow heavy, frozen or stony.

We have the opportunity to weigh both sides of an issue with sweetness and light -- or maddening indecision and flip-flopping. The choice is (literally) ours. On the plus side, Mercury in Libra helps us to access that fine sword of discrimination before jumping into commitments or decisions too hastily. The downside is over-thinking our options and getting lost in the back-and-forth swing of the Scales, forever trying to make up our minds. We have to realize there will always be drawbacks and doubt, but sitting on the fence of indecision for too long tends to feel like self-inflicted barbed-wire treatment. Eventually we must commit or quit -- even if the situation is not perfect.

A powerful meeting occurs on October 4, the last day of this transit, when Mercury joins with Saturn in Libra. Expect some very potent realizations and decisions to come to a head over issues you’ve possibly struggled with for the past two-and-a-half years while Saturn has been in Libra. The very next day, both Mercury and Saturn will move into Scorpio, deepening our emotional connection to all of the relationship lessons we’ve survived since October of 2009.
