Mercury enters Libra early today, where it will transit until
September 27th. While Mercury is in Libra, we are especially diplomatic
and we're able to bring a more rational approach to one-to-one relationships.
It's a good time to think about ways we can improve our negotiation skills. In
an attempt to see both sides of any given situation, Mercury in Libra can be
a vacillating energy. It can be more challenging than usual to make quick
decisions, as we can very often sit on the fence. We may too easily accommodate
others' opinions in order to keep the peace. In our negotiations, we don't
want to assert ourselves in such a way as to appear to be the "bad guy".
However, this is a good period for considering others' points of view. We
are more inclined to arrive at truly fair conclusions. A First Quarter Moon
occurs this morning as the Sun in Virgo forms a square with the
Sagittarius Moon. There is
a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take
action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions affect those close
to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative we began
around the New Moon on August 25th is now off the ground, and it may face its first
obstacles. Venus in dynamic aspect to Pluto this morning can stimulate some underlying tensions in social interactions
and relationships. Passions
run hot, but there's a hidden agenda. Avoid power plays with
friends and lovers. The Moon is in spirited Sagittarius all day.
Note: Read the
sections for both your Sun Sign and Ascendant for a better
picture of what lies ahead for the day. For example, if you are
an Aries with a Leo Ascendant, read the forecast for both
Aries and Leo.
