The Sun In Libra
With the Sun in Libra, balance is the keyword. As with the autumnal equinox, when the Sun is in Libra it's your time to seek out harmony and, if you can't find it, create it yourself. Reach out to others and promote the general welfare. Mediate if called-for. In your own dealings, strive for fairness and seeing the other side.
While in Libra, the Sun suggests that you seek beauty. Appreciate art and music. Go to a concert. Open that bottle of wine you've been saving (and be sure to share!). All that said, remember not to be a pushover, of course. Accommodation also requires moderation.
Mercury Is In Libra
When the planet of speech and the sign of one-on-one relationships get together, our communication with others comes into focus. This isn’t just love relationships we’re talking about -- it’s also about our family, friends, and coworkers, too. If we’ve had any fights, or if we’ve been holding on to a long-term grudge, this is a good time to finally put them to rest.
Diplomacy takes center stage when Mercury is in Libra! Libra is represented by the Scales of justice in Astrology, so it makes sense that we’ll be more objective during this time, attempting to approach every situation in a fair-minded and balanced way. Think of this transit as a gentle reminder from the universe on the importance of considering others’ perspectives and embracing the beauty of compromise.
One challenge of this transit is the tendency to be a little too nice. Don’t sugar-coat things or withhold information just to avoid rocking the boat, as kindness could end up being a barrier to real communication. We need to realize there are many ways to connect with someone, and agreement is only one of them. Expressing opposing beliefs with respect and openness is a terrific way to strengthen any partnership.
Mars In Libra
Relationships are everything while Mars moves through Libra. Mars is the planet of motivation and drive, and Libra is the sign that prizes balance and rules our 1-on-1 partnerships. During Mars’ transit through Libra, we’re especially aware of the relationships in our lives: what’s working, what’s not, and how far they can take us.
No one wants to rock the boat while Mars is in Libra, and we’re more friendly and thoughtful of others, and less inclined to pick fights or act impulsively. Instead of leaning on Mars’ typical aggression, we’re influenced by Libra’s peacemaking abilities. Anger and arguments are diminished during this transit, because we’re more focused on creating calm and loving partnerships than we are on being right or pushing buttons.
But with all this passive energy flying around, it’s also easier to ignore bigger problems. We want to act as if everything’s fine while Mars is in Libra, but the reality is, it may not be. Repressing our feelings so we don’t start arguments won’t help anybody. Instead, realize that this is a time of great diplomacy. We have a greater ability to talk about difficult subjects with a level of grace and love that is normally lacking. It’s not about avoiding things, it’s about addressing them with care in an effort to build new, lasting solutions.
Because Libra is the sign of justice, Mars’ move this diplomatic sign is also a time to fight for what’s fair and what’s right. Equality matters and Libra, while normally passive, is willing to fight to ensure this balance is maintained.
Unfortunately, we may feel plagued by indecision or procrastination during this transit, because Mars wants to make a move, whereas Libra wants to take its time to make sure it’s the right move. In the end, if we are acting with love, intention, and fairness, we are making the right moves under Mars in Libra.
