Mercury Turns Direct in Libra:

Idealism Returns

For the last several weeks, it's been Mercury retrograde, first in Scorpio and then in Libra.

In astrology, once Mercury turns direct in Libra and starts to move forwards again, all of the Sun signs will experience a subtle shift in Mercury’s energy and a corresponding shift in their thought processes and patterns.

When Mercury was retrograde in Libra, our key focus was on finding internal balance and harmony—learning from where that harmony was missing and figuring out how to do things differently next time.

The astrologically natural idealism of Mercury in Libra was directed inwards towards our own psyches, rather than outwards into the world.

Now though, it’s time to turn our gaze away from ourselves and back out into the wider world. Mercury in Libra seeks balance, whether direct or retrograde, but it’s now the balance in the wider world which concerns us.

Most of us will enter this period reasonably confident that we’ve learned something about ourselves over the last couple of weeks during Mercury retrograde. We’ve changed – now, how can we change the world?

Each sign, in its own way, will now be thinking idealistically, in a big picture, whole-society manner.

The downside of this is that Mercury in Libra can be rather unrealistic. The grand ideas this transit brings will come to nothing without grounded, practical action—but this energy thrives on concepts, abstracts, initiatives and ideals.

Practical, it isn’t. With Mercury turning direct in Libra, our challenge is to double-check that fine words match with fine deeds.

Part of this challenge can be met if we make ourselves accountable. For each lofty goal you have when Mercury turns direct, set yourself a tangible target and a date by which you hope to have achieved it.

Don’t just dream: create an action plan to underpin your dreams.

We can all use the rationalism Libra brings to our advantage here. Although idealistic, the Mercury in Libra transit is not foolish or blind to reality.

There’s a golden opportunity here to blend idealism with a true sense of what’s possible.

 

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

In astrology, each of the Sun signs will handle Mercury turning direct in Libra slightly differently, just as they did with Mercury retrograde.

This is very subtle energy, and unless either Libra or Mercury is prominent in your natal chart, it’s easily missed or easily confused with other astrological influences.

 

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

You’ve been doing a bit of a love audit over the last few weeks of Mercury retrograde, understanding how your own behavior has led to your current relationship situation.

Enough navel gazing now, Aries – it’s time to turn your face back out to the world. Resume dating if you’re single or start looking at your existing relationship with optimism and hope. You’ve got this.

 

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

If you’ve been taking a serious look at your health over the last few weeks of Mercury retrograde, Taurus,  now is the time to take action to improve matters.

Sign up for a new kind of exercise you’ll love – something graceful and artistic, perhaps, like dance, swimming or tai chi. Look into a healthy eating regime which doesn’t deny you your favorite foods. Find positive, optimistic ways of improving your well-being.

 

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Creative blocks should start to melt away now that Mercury is no longer retrograde, Gemini. Get back to your favorite artistic hobbies such as writing or painting and explore ways in which you can let your emotions shine through.

Your ideas are strong, but you’re not sharing them with enough people. Think about teaching or mentoring, even informally, in a creative subject.

 

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Be inspired when it comes to your family life, Cancer. Stir things up and shake things around if that’s what it takes to make your family life happier or more robust.

It’s a good time to decorate your home or to create a sanctuary space. Don’t just think about it or dream about it – get started on it now.

 

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

You’re emerging from a difficult few weeks during the retrograde cycle and shadow phase when you may have felt quite lonely and isolated, or plagued by negative thoughts.

Mercury turning direct is like the Sun coming out again, Leo, so enjoy this refreshing feeling for all it’s worth. This is a very good time to start meeting new friends or showcasing your growing confidence.

 

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Money worries start to ease as Mercury turns direct in your finance zone, Virgo. You should find it easier than ever now to increase your income or to set up a creative or hobby-based side hustle.

The key is to take what you love and look at ways to create income from that – don’t do something you hate just because you think it will make you rich.

 

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Your self-confidence may have taken a battering during the Mercury retrograde period, Libra, but now you’re emerging stronger than before.

Take some risks now and show off to the world how far you’ve come. Do whatever makes you feel vibrant and alive – above all, have some fun and let the sunlight back into your life.

 

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

You probably feel as though you’ve been a bit out of it for the last couple of weeks, Scorpio, particularly when Mercury was retrograde in your spiritual zone.

Re-joining the real world may seem like a challenge now, so don’t be surprised if you feel like hunkering down and hiding. Get back out there gently, gradually, slowly. Don’t force it.

 

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

During Mercury retrograde, you may have had to lose some friendships or leave some social groups, for your own good. That was tough, Sagittarius.

Now that Mercury has turned direct again, use your joie-de-vivre and your sense of fun to reach out to others and create new connections. Join new groups, make new friends, find new people to debate with.

 

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Start to think strategically now about your career direction, Capricorn. You have ideals about where you would like to head, but you’ve always felt that the time isn’t right. Ask yourself: if not now, when?

Strip away the excuses and take concrete action now to head towards your long-term goals, faster and more positively than ever before.

 

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

Your challenge now is to put your famous idealism into practice, Aquarius. You’ve spent the last few weeks of Mercury retrograde with a grand vision, but little idea of how to manifest it.

Work with others now, post-retrograde. Reach out to those who share a common goal and work together to bring it into reality.

 

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) When Mercury Turns Direct in Libra

With Mercury now turning direct, you can rid yourself of the feelings of guilt, shame or betrayal that came with Mercury retrograde.

Whatever trauma you have faced in the past, Pisces, there’s a feeling of freedom heading your way now. Use the inspirationalrational power of Mercury in Libra to shine a light where it’s needed most, and that includes on your own unfounded fears and worries.

 

*Note: The exact date and time Mercury turns direct in Scorpio will differ depending on your timezone. This planet update was published the day before Mercury turned direct in Scorpio in Eastern Standard Time (EST) in the year 2020, which is November, 2020 @ 17:50.

    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

    I am so incredibly grateful. I have known, and been applying, the incredible insights that astrology offers to my own life, for some time now, but my husband was still doubtful. I don't know that he truly was believing me about the insight offered from Astrology readings. Until last night. I played his and my videos for us, and not only did it validate insight and information I'd been telling him, there were far more tidbits that went even further in depth. That short introduction into the preciseness of legitimate Astrological insight was seriously the last bit of validation that he needed to realize that his lovely wife wasn't raving on about some cockamamy nonsense that 'is so broad and general in nature that it can apply to anyone at any time. Plus, we have been going through an incredible healing period and transformation of selves and his enabled him to begin to understand why he has felt for, protected, loved, and held so tightly onto those who haven't done the same, and he absolutely was not required to accept abuse from anyone because they're blood related. Thank You!!! The professionalism, insight, accuracy, and clarity thus gained from the peeks into our personality types, further cemented our bond with one another, and our understanding that everything that had been occurring was for our, our little family, and ultimately the Collective All In Oneness' highest, greatest good. So again, thank you for sharing your journey and your incredible contribution to the highest good of the Collective All. You, your work, and the insight/direction it helps provide are not only interesting and informative, but very much needed and incredibly appreciated! Thank You!Cached

    I have been listening to Kelli Fox's astrology videos for a few years now (even before astrology.tv started). I was drawn by both her personality and her voice (love Aussie accents), but especially by her astrological insights that always seemed to be spot on. I now watch her daily, weekly and monthly videos on astrology.tv with great anticipation, and have been joining her weekly astrology.tv weekly sessions for the past month, which are very fun and informant. I like the fact that she will go over personal charts of her viewers during these sessions (still waiting for mine, though) and being able to interact with other viewers in a chat room (Kelli loves being distracted by us!). Anyway, I highly recommend signing up for her newsletters and joining her groups. Kelli is the best!Cached
