Mercury in Libra:

Beautiful Ideas

In astrology, Mercury, the fastest moving of the astrological planets, is all about ideas, intelligence, the power of our mind and our communication skills. When Mercury switches signs, we sense a difference somehow in the way we communicate and in the way we think. When Mercury was in Virgo, it was all about critical analysis – but when Mercury shifts into Libra, a sense of idealism overtakes any sense of realism.

Libra is a cardinal air sign, which means that it leads through the power of ideas. Mercury is quite at home here, and Mercury in Libra energy is rational, calm and idealistic. Because Libra is associated with the arts and with beauty, imagination gets a boost during this Mercury transit, and it’s a good time for writers, singers and other people who craft with words.

The Libra man and woman, however, is infamously indecisive, as befits a sign symbolized by precariously balanced scales. When Mercury transits Libra, decisions may take longer than normal, and we may backtrack several times before finally settling on an answer. There’s nothing wrong with this per se, but there is a danger that the eventual decision will be the ‘easiest’ option since Libra energy is desperate to avoid conflict.

During the Mercury in Libra transit in astrology, concern for practicalities is not really a thing. We have beautiful ideas, we have amazing insights, we have wonderful, creative suggestions to make. How these things get turned into reality, we figure, is not our problem. We’re the ideas people, not the practical people. This can make this transit rather frustrating since in our own individual lives, it’s not enough to have ideas – we also need to know how to implement them.

The Mercury in Libra transit is also associated with a quest for justice or fairness. However, just because we may instinctively view something as unfair doesn’t mean we will necessarily be successful in countering it – that may require more organization than we can muster right now.

Mercury Transit Libra for Each of the Sun Signs

In astrology, the Libran Mercury transit will affect each Sun sign slightly differently, depending on each person's natal chart and which solar house is emphasized during the transit, and how the energies of Libra and the other sign mesh together.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mercury in Libra

During the Mercury in Libra transit, your idealism is focused on your love life. This can be a wonderfully romantic period, Aries, and you’ll certainly have no trouble telling your sweetheart how you feel – but do be aware that you need to live with the real person, not your idealized, rose-tinted version of them. Be realistic about why you fell in love in the first place.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury in Libra

Don’t be surprised if you get rather short-tempered with work colleagues during the Mercury in Libra transit, Taurus. Although this energy is typically easy going, your idealistic views of how work relationships should be are getting in the way of reality. In practice, to smooth things over, you’re going to have to compromise, be open-minded, play nicely and look at the other side. You can do that – right?

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury in Libra

It’s a wonderfully imaginative and creative time for your self-expression during the Mercury in Libra transit, Gemini. You’ll want to socialize and party a lot, since being around others is your very reason for being right now. You can bring a lot of joy to a lot of people with your warm and witty personality, but take care not to be insincere in your motives. There’s a tendency here to use people for social climbing.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury in Libra

The Mercury in Libra transit is an excellent time for exploring your family history and genealogy, Cancer. It’s also great for writing about your childhood experiences as a form of therapy, or indeed for attending counseling or talking therapies to deal with a past trauma. Make the most of this communicative vibe to get back in touch with distant family members and to build bridges if there has been a feud.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Mercury in Libra

A bit of a conversationalist, huh, Leo? This Mercury in Libra vibe brings out your inner socialite, and you’ll want to talk to just about everyone, as often as possible. Your mind is being stretched intellectually too, making this a good period to learn a new skill or to go back to school. Be realistic in what you choose to take on, however, otherwise you will be setting yourself up for disappointment.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Mercury in Libra

With this Mercury transit highlighting your money zone, Virgo, it’s a great time for rational thought about your finances. Libra energy loves luxury so watch out for over-spending. If you can keep your buying under control, this is a chance to sort out your financial priorities once and for all, tying up lose ends and finding better deals where necessary.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Mercury in Libra

With Mercury now in your own sign, your Libran diplomatic skills come into their own. This is a fantastic time to work as a mediator, or to mediate informally between colleagues, friends or family members. You have a knack for finding win-win solutions and you’ll be called upon now to help people find fair and just resolutions without the need to sugar-coat. Keep your motives high and your intentions even higher.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury in Libra

Mercury now transits the most spiritual sector of your chart, bringing with it increasingly vivid dreams and psychic insights. You may feel rather strange during this transit, Scorpio, but don’t be scared or put off. Spirit is all around you, and you can tap into something extraordinary if you spend some time in meditation and quiet contemplation.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury in Libra

With Mercury now activating your social zone, it’s time to party for sure, Sagittarius. New friendships are on the horizon, and you may bond with one particular person on a very intellectual level too. Expect to feel interested in justice for your local community or neighborhood, particularly if it has been neglected. It’s a good time to get involved in local politics.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Mercury in Libra

Mercury transits your career zone now, helping you to make strong, intelligent decisions about your future direction. It helps that Mercury is in an air sign, so no unnecessary emotions cloud your judgement – but do try to bring your heart and soul into the decision making process somehow. Otherwise, it will all be a little too clinical.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 17) During Mercury in Libra

Feeling restless, Aquarius? You need an intellectual challenge during this Mercury transit. Learning a foreign language would be ideal. Higher education of any kind is favored now, and so is travel – but if you’re stuck where you are, remember that education is all around you. Make use of local facilities, contacts or opportunities to broaden your mind.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury in Libra

This Mercury transit brings some much needed rational balance to counter your emotional instincts, Pisces, which have been slightly running amok. It’s time now not to let your head rule your heart, exactly, but to as least give your head a look in. Blend your strong intuition with some good, solid facts, for an unbeatable approach to a problem.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

    Kelli is so "on point". I've come to trust her instincts as I do my own. The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
