This Sunday, September 16, curious Mercury joins serious Saturn in relationship-loving Libra, and will remain there through October 5. This planetary pairing highlights the power of honest communication. It also creates links between conversation and commitment.
If you want a commitment from someone special, this is the time to talk it through. And to improve communication in your relationships, honor your promises and follow through on plans. Mercury and Saturn highlight the need for authenticity. Carefully consider any promises before making them now. Once you’ve committed to something, Saturn will expect you to follow through.
The astrological love angle focuses on compromise and working together. The value in a relationship with someone special comes from sharing rather than doing. Plans that are discussed and allowed time to come to fruition are ideal, so avoid rushing romance.
Honesty is essential and a little effort means you’ll be able to find the right way to get your message across, while still being diplomatic. Talking is key to enhancing commitment, and is the only way to clarify whether you both really want the same things. Discuss what you really want -- you might be surprised by how closely your and your beloved’s dreams align.
