Travelling through this airy sign of fairness, balance and compromise, communication is likely to feel a lot easier in relationships. As well as offering us a greater capacity to see the other person’s point of view, we are more likely to find it easier to detach and take some time to assess different facets of our own thoughts, views and opinions.
After weeks of experiencing Mercury in Virgo, we are likely to breath a sigh of relief. Unlike the tendency to nitpick for challenges within ourselves and others, Mercury in Libra seeks ways to mediate differences, so that everyone feels heard and understood.
The main problem area in many relationships is communication, particularly if the other person’s natal Mercury is in a different element to ours. The easiest Mercury connections are between Mercury in Fire and Air and Mercury in Water and Earth. The other combinations can be very attractive and growth enhancing, but they often require the willingness and capacity to pay additional attention to communication in the relationship. With Mercury in Libra, we are more likely to create the time to really listen to each other on all levels, out of a desire for mutual understanding and cooperation, rather than the need to be right.
This is the perfect time to address any differences with people we love, as diplomacy is likely to feel a lot easier, particularly from next Tuesday, after Mercury has made aspects to Uranus, Chiron and Saturn! MG
