MERCURY in LIBRA (Aug 27 – Nov 1!) to go RETRO: REflective and REbalancing.

27 Aug

MERCURY just entered LIBRA this morning (8:44 am PDT) – for a VERY long forth and back and forth journey in the energy field of ‘The Scales’, until NOV 1!

Mercury Pajou (at the Louvre, Paris) Seems Libran / Scorpionic to me :-)

Mercury, by A. Pajou (Louvre, Paris).
A very LIBRAN Mercury… taking a REflective rest.

You guessed it:
MERCURY will go RETRO soon, on SEPT 17 (incidentally the day when SATURN enters SAG), until OCT 9.

Under this extended MERCURY in LIBRA phase MIND will be RE-calibrated. WHAT we think about Libran affairs (partnership, relationship, give and receive, inner feminine and masculine, fairness, justice, balance…) and – perhaps even more importantly so – HOW our mind operates will change and be RE-balanced.

Perhaps you are at this point faced with making decisions – or: you are offered choices (how does that sound?), which is the feminine side of the equation (to balance out our collective masculine mind-set), esp. related to the area of your life where LIBRA is in your chart (e.g. 10th house: career, 2nd house: business / finances, 6th house: lifestyle, work, health, etc.).
Consider that the choices we would make now will not be the choices we make after the process. Which doesn’t mean, be in limbo, frozen, on the fence, until November…

IF you feel you are torn between equally valid options, observe THAT.
Mindfulness (rather than our ‘usual’ mind-full-ness), in other words, observing what the mind is doing, from an inner center that is not the mind itself, is good medicine any time, esp. under Mercury retro, esp. in LIBRA.
Any mind balancing tools will come handy these days.
Also, when the left hemisphere of rational, analytical thinking is getting too strong, find balance through creative flow.

Forgotten about dance, arts, culture for its own sake?
Thinking about people and activities that have been very complementary for you – maybe because they bring something into your life that you would neglect otherwise?
This would be the time to re-connect.

A few key words for MERCURY in LIBRA:
The weighing mind.
Balance of the right and left hemisphere.
Balance of the inner masculine and feminine.

LIBRA rules the following areas – our mind will change around them:
Fairness, justice, law.
Arts and culture.

Wherever LIBRA is in your chart (house, planets, AC, Sun, Moon) that’s where MERCURY will travel, REactivate, and REbalance.

Here is the ‘itinerary’ of the MERCURY RETRO-SPHERE’ in LIBRA:

AUG 27 (today):
MERCURY enters LIBRA, and also the pre-retro SHADOW is at the first degree of LI until which it will go retro).
Any pre-monitions, foreshadowing effects, early ‘symptoms’?

MERCURY enters the pre-retro STORM (very slow, almost stationary phase before the ‘U-turn’):
Shall I stay or shall I go? Shall I choose this or that? Wait a minute: Observing what’s going on in the mind is more important than ‘making the right decision’ at this point.

SEPT 17:
MERCURY goes RETRO at 15:55 LIBRA (right in the centre!).
The busy outward focused mind is invited to go inward.
Perhaps to REflect on the areas / themes above. Perhaps to REconnect with people from the past, rather randomly and magically than via personal plan and ‘negotiation’.

SEPT 30:
MERCURY retro and the SUN unite – The ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’, and ‘New Mercury’.
Inner Mind meets Consciousness. An important re-balancing effect: Spirit can be rather in the ‘driver’s seat’ again, rather than Mind running the show (Mercury retro is all about that).

OCT 9:
MERCURY goes DIRECT (forward from Earth perspective) again, however stays in the slow ‘U-turn’ ‘STORM’ until OCT 13.
What and how do you choose now?
Peace of MIND?!

OCT 24:
MERCURY leaves the post-retro shadow.
A new Balance is being integrated.
