Mercury & Venus Enter Libra
We are getting the love & relationship party started as the messenger of the Gods and the Goddess of love and money make their move from Virgo into Libra. Libra season is just around the corner which helps us to balance the scales in life, especially where love is concerned.
Mercury was very much at home in its place of power in Virgo, helping us to hone in on the details of our lives, to discern what in our routines and systems needed to stay and what needed to go. Mercury rules over the mental plane, and while in his place of power, really helped us to kick the old, negative programming to the curb. Now that Mercury is entering into Libra, we will be able to analyze our relationships; especially where love & money is concerned. Because Mercury rules over our communications, you will find that your social interactions become much more light-hearted, playful, and fun.
There’s a much more rational approach that we take when diving into matters that effect our relationships status, and it’s a great time to be the mediator within yourself and those tougher conversations that we’ve been putting off. Mercury allows us to see where the scales have become unbalanced in our relationships and also has the cool, detached, and flirty kind of energy to talk our way back into a much more fair, and balanced state. We can see both sides of the coin under this influence and we are open and understanding enough to co-operate in a way where the compromises we must make to meet another in the middle are fair to all concerned.
Watch out for being overly indecisive as Mercury moves through Libra, as one of the more negative traits of this Libra energy is to find sitting on the fence quite comfortable. Many Librans find it hard to make decisions and are likely to sway back and forth on a topic needing external reassurance to actually decide and commit. We strive for harmony under the Libra energy, but make sure you aren’t sacrificing your own wants, needs, and desires, just to keep the peace.
Venus, the Goddess of love, money, beauty, pleasure, and long-term commitments moves into Libra today as well. Venus rules over both Taurus and Libra. While in Taurus, Venus is more money focused, while in Libra she is more consumed with love. While in her place of power, she is very charming, flirty, highly social, and beams with a beauty that shines very bright.
Although her main goal and focus is love, she remains very cool and detached in her quest to secure long-term relationships. She is evaluating her current positions in life in both love and money, and is truly breaking down what it is that brings her life joy and value. She is willing to compromise and negotiate more fairly under the Libra energy because her ideas of love become a bit more realistic to her compared to some of the imaginary ideals she often gets swept away in.
Avoid being overly aggressive under this influence as peace and harmony are the ultimate goals. Be aware of any relationships where dependency is an issue and watch out for consciously avoiding unpleasant conversations or situations. We have a tendency to gloss over some serious issues in our relationships all in attempt to not rock the boat. Venus’ main objective is to restore balance to her life, and doing so will create a space for her to relax and truly embrace the love she has for herself and for those she loves.
