Mercury Retrograde in Libra:

Seeking Internal Balance

Mercury will turn retrograde in Libra on September 27th until October 18th.  What does this mean, in astrological terms, and how will it affect each zodiac sign?

What is Mercury Retrograde?

For approximately three weeks, several times a year, Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, appears to move backwards through the heavens in an optical illusion which is highly symbolic astrologically.

Why Does Mercury Retrograde Matter?

Mercury retrograde is an important period in astrology because during this time our thought processes and communication methods change subtly. It’s as if this speedy planet gives us a pause button, so that we can direct our energy internally instead of spending it out in the world.

Mercury retrograde cycles are often said to bring delays and confusion, but in reality,  astrologers say its effects depend very much upon the position of Mercury in your own natal chart – each Mercury retrograde period will affect some people much more than others.

What is the Significance of Mercury Retrograde in Libra?

With Mercury retrograde in Libra, astrologers see that we can start to deal with a new truth, finding balance between what we are and what we would like to be.

In astrology, Mercury retrograde in Libra is about seeking harmony internally. When Mercury is direct in Libra, we often use our words and thoughts to try to create external harmony, but now we’re learning that we must have peace and balance within our own minds before we can hope to affect the wider world.

During Mercury retrograde in Libra, think about the role you may have played in any conflict or discord currently in your life. None of us are free from blame or responsibility for where we are now, regardless of how lucky or unlucky your life circumstances have been.

The way we have reacted or behaved in the past has, in some way or other, contributed to where we are now.

Having identified how you contributed to your current situation, think about how creating a better internal balance can help you avoid repeating the same mistake in the future.

For example, you may need to find a better balance between what you want in life and what you’re prepared to pay (emotionally) for it. Or perhaps a better balance between your willingness to do your duty versus your desire to play.

Maybe you need to create harmony between your reliance on logic versus your reliance on your instincts. Something, somewhere, is out of balance, and that can be improved now.

Horoscopes: How Does Mercury Retrograde in Libra Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

During Mercury Retrograde in Libra, each zodiac sign in astrology will find themselves seeking internal balance in some way and learning the lessons from the past.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

Mercury in your love zone now means that you’ll need to face up to how you have contributed to your current happiness or unhappiness in love.

You may be doing pretty much everything right, Aries—good for you—but most of us will find that there are ways we can improve how we relate to our partners.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

Mercury is now retrograde in your health zone and if you’ve ignored your health in the recent past, Taurus, this may be catching up with you.

It’s a great time to leave behind excuses about not having enough time to exercise or to eat properly—do yourself a huge favor now and spend some serious time upgrading your health regime.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

Creatively, you may draw a blank now that Mercury is retrograde in Libra, Gemini. Get around this block by using art or music for inspiration.

You’ll also find yourself more inspired if you force yourself out of your everyday comfort zone and into new situations. Taking calculated risks now may pay off post-retrograde.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

Mercury is now retrograde in your family zone, and it’s time to think about how your work-life balance has impacted your family.

Much of it may be beyond your control, Cancer, but acknowledging the problem, if there is one, is a good first step towards shifting the energies in this regard. Resolve to make things better and see how it goes.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)

Self-critical thoughts are unwelcome additions to your head during Mercury retrograde in Libra, Leo. You’re normally quite a self-confident sign but now the balance between your mask and the real you may be slipping slightly.

Don’t be afraid to show your weaknesses. So it goes - they are as much a part of your as your strengths are.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)

Mercury in your money zone could bring delays or frustrations for your finances, Virgo.

However, it’s a good time to think about how you’ve balanced your money in the past – and how you’ve balanced your desire to serve others with your desire to be wealthy, two things which don’t commonly go together.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)

Retrograde motion in your own sign asks you to examine how often you take the easy option, agreeing with people just for the sake of it or saying yes just to avoid a conflict.

You’re being asked now to stand firm in your own identity, Leo, and to avoid giving in for the sake of a quiet life.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

This retrograde phase in your spiritual zone could cause you some sleepless nights as confusing or disturbing dreams give your nights an other-worldly feel.

Your intuition may also be sending you mixed messages, Scorpiohere your task is to balance instinct against reason, without becoming totally dependent on either.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

Expect some delays or disappointments in friendships while Mercury is in your social zone, Sagittarius.

This is a good time to consider who you spend time with, and whether some people are doing you more harm than good. Cut the ties you no longer need. You can do so kindly, by all means, but cut them, nonetheless.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)

Mercury in your career zone is asking you to redress the balance between your career and your personal life, Capricorn.

You’re a hardworking, ambitious sign, but you do tend to sacrifice other areas of your life in your quest for success. Redefine what success looks like and accept that is has little relation to how much money you earn.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)

Mercury retrograde in Libra stirs up your inner rebel so you can expect to feel restless and perhaps uncomfortable during this period.

If you can travel, Aquarius, that will help to soothe your soul, but ultimately, you’re being asked to balance your desire for change against your desire for the status quo. There are no easy answers.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

Mercury retrograde encourages you to balance your desire to forgive others against your need to forgive yourself, Pisces.

In the blame game, you always tend to blame yourself while giving others a free pass, and this needs to change. Start being fair to yourself. Give yourself credit where it’s due and acknowledge that others are not blameless.

    I'm struck by Kelli's uncanny way of giving a clear picture through words. Call it command of the English language, word-smithing genius, a way with words, but the way she brings the astrological influences to us is nothing short of divine skill, in my view.Cached

    I enjoy attending Zoom events on Thursday, especially when you choose and analyze charts for those who are present at the time. I can imagine their faces and I already know their names, and I feel like I know you all :-) And I'm always thrilled the way you react (like a child) when you open any chart, because you always see good things first, but also give useful advice when needed. That says a lot about you Kelli and I just love it. Thank you for that! :-) P.S. I can't mark the stars (I don't know why) but they're all on!Cached

    Kelli always finds the balance between shadow and light to guide us in the best direction. She can see clearly through the maze of mathematics of Astrology, hold it all in her head and clearly describe what’s on the Astrological agenda for the following day, week, month and year.Cached
