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 or assignation. As Libra is the sign of relationships, any jagged edges here would be smoothed over and realigned, whilst we slept perhaps.
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 since early September. 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 beautiful, some more like toxic underground streams. Ancient angst – especially around looks, love & once upon a time legal entanglements can feel fresh all over again. It’s also lending itself to some stunningly snarky pass-agg outbreaks. It can even be lapses in judgement & a total vague out of your usual zingy brain process.
Indecision vies with flashes of pure genius/intuition even as the lack of respect from certain elements in your life becomes stark, ravingly apparent. It’s the end of the North Node in Libra/South Node in Aries vibe that began in Feb 2014 so there is a shift of focus, subtle but detectable this week.
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 hovering on the edge of an impulse or commitment during Mercury Retrograde, it’s better to pull back & let go of something, rather than start it. For now. Avoid dud decisions and that fabulous Libra equilibrium becomes ever more attainable.
Meditate on the true meaning of composure…to compose yourself.
