Mercury in Libra

We can learn a lot about how we communicate, learn, and think from where Mercury is in our chart. It’s not just what we say, but how we say it – and how we hear, absorb and understand the messages coming from others.

If you have Mercury in one of the Air signs, you probably learn and communicate through making connections – in the case of Libra, through bringing people together. If you have Mercury in Libra, your interest is likely to be stimulated through actual conversation and interaction with others – and you learn best in the company of others.

What has this got to do with anything? Mercury moves out of Virgo and into Libra today. He’s gathering up some speed and won’t be here long- just until October 17th.

If you want to know more about Mercury in Libra, or how Libra thinks and learns, here’s something I prepared much earlier

Doing it for yourself…

While Mercury is in Libra, take the opportunity to learn more about the part of your life that Libra rules by seeing it through the eyes and words and interactions with others. Seek out like minded people – or those who can provide a balanced perspective to a subject you’re curious about.

If you have a decision to make regarding the affairs of your Libra house, make sure that you seek out all the information in order to form a balanced view and judgement.

If you don’t have your chart, read this post on how to get one.

If you don’t know what the houses mean, check out series 1 of the Toolbox or this post.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide:
