Mercury Retrograde in Libra is like any Mercury Retrograde (don’t sign contracts or buy big-deal tech items etc) but it mainly influences partnerships. In an optimal scenario, the Mercury Retrograde in Libra would be an elegant re-balancing act. Insights would gently occur to us at yoga. Or whilst wafting down the citrus-scented clean pavements en route to some desirable appointment. As Libra is the sign of relationships, any jagged edges would be smoothed over and realigned whilst we slept.
But it’s stranger than that. Mercury Retro in Libra has been going back and forward in quincunx (tricky aspect with an edge of fate) to shamanic Neptune. And the last blast of that is not till late October, even though Mercury goes Direct in a week.
Mercury in bizarre aspect to Neptune can = oceanic undercurrents of feeling. Some are more like toxic underground streams. Ancient angst – especially around looks, love & once upon a time legal entanglements feels contemporary. Think also snark. It can even manifest as lapses in judgment & a total vague out of your usual zingy brain process.
Indecision vies with flashes of pure genius/intuition. The lack of respect from certain elements becomes stark, ravingly apparent. It’s the end of the North Node in Libra/South Node in Aries vibe that began in Feb 2014. Notice the subtle shift of focus.
If you think YOU are finding this annoying, imagine how it would be just meandering through without even knowing Mercury was Retrograde. See your Horoscopes for more targeted-to-you thoughts but in short, if you’re on the edge of a commitment during Mercury Retrograde in Libra, it’s better to pull back. For now. Avoid dud decisions and that fabulous Libra equilibrium becomes ever more attainable.
Meditate on the true meaning of composure…to compose yourself.
