Mercury Retrograde in Libra 9-26-21
The night of September 26 through October 18 Mercury reverses course in the sign of Libra. The communication planet in Libra prefers balance, peace and compromise. It is in a sign of beauty, harmony, and love. With connections askew, indecisiveness and misunderstandings can complicate the usual delays and re-do’s required when Mercury is retrograde.
Libra rules aesthetics so this is not a good time to shop for decor or clothes or change your hairstyle. Because Libra affects relationships, any interpersonal connections can be up for review. Renegotiate agreements and roles in your business and private life. Witness your assumptions and be flexible- Many truths are possible.
There is an extra edge to this Mercury retrograde. The home planet of Libra is Venus, now in Scorpio. She is deeply emotional and takes things personally. So communications can be colored with more passion and coming from unconscious wounds. Witness any ulterior motives. Tread softly and compassionately with yourself and others.
Serena Williams was born with 5 planets in Libra, including Mercury. She has Venus in Scorpio. She is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. She has been very influential in cultural standards of beauty inspiring many people to celebrate their natural born bodies and their individual sense of style. Her Venus in Scorpio adds a sexual charisma but also a deep sense of outrage that has caused her many penalties when she objected to calls by tournament officials. Scorpio is also a profound strategist which contributes to the mastery of her game.
