September 27 – October 18
It’s September 27, 2021 and we have officially entered Mercury Retrograde in Libra! This begins with a square to Pluto who is also retrograde—in Capricorn—which brings a no nonsense approach to all relationships. This bottom line aspect has the ability to create some intensity and conflict in communicating issues in our relationships.
Because Pluto is the first to go direct on October 6th the first 9 days of the retrograde Mercury will be the most intense since 6 planets will still be retrograde.
Pack your patience for sure! Deep breathing and count to ten will help before speaking if necessary to avoid arguments and miscommunication.
Since Libra is the sign of one-on-one partnerships, Mercury retrograde will have us revise, review, and rethink how we are relating to one another as a way to find more balance and fairness within our most important bonds.
During this transit, we'll be asked to consider how we relate to all of the people in our lives, including romantic partners, friends, family, and even our coworkers, and how we can make our communication more harmonious.
This Mercury retrograde focuses the effects of the slower motion of the retrogrades and moves it from the realm of the collective and the world around you to the realm of the personal.
When Mercury is retrograde we may begin to see the flow of information slowing down, getting delayed, confused and completely misunderstood. We have to work even harder to be clear in our communications, since that really is what Mercury retrograde is all about. We cannot always control if our computers slow down, or if there is a lot of traffic and delays, but what we can do is just take deep breaths, call up patience, and really focus on what is most important and to choose our battles wisely.
Watch machines, especially computers and cell phones, since they tend to break down, and since we use them for communication which all comes under Mercury Retrograde.
Ditto for signing contracts and any other important papers. Make sure you are clear, and you have asked all the questions you need to ask. Do not hesitate to ask for a re-wording of something, and just make sure you cover all your bases. It is always good to show the contract to someone who understands what it is about.
This is a great time to go back and complete projects that were started and never finished. Writing, creating, visiting old friends are wonderful in this energy. Since this is in Libra expect old relationships to come back during this time. This can be love or business partnership.
