#131 October 10-16: Mercury in Libra


We can’t lie, there’s a lot of crunchiness this week, but hopefully by week’s end you are feeling lighter through the work you do prior.

The madness of Saturn Squaring Uranus is joined by Mars, the God of War, Squaring Neptune, the God of the Sea, creating some rough waters for your thoughts to flow through.

Mercury returns to Libra, joining Venus, the planetary ruler, and the Sun, supporting you in having the grace to listen to those you are in relationship with in order to bridge the gap and find peace.

#131 Mercury in Libra

The themes this week are…

1. Compassion

2. Curiosity

3. Courage

According to the dictionary, bigotry is an obstinate or unreasonable attachment to a belief, opinion, or fraction, in particular, prejudice against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.

From some perspectives this could be seen as a frequency that plagues our Earth.

With Mercury joining the Sun and Venus in Libra, the Sign of Equanimity and Peace, you are being called to see things from the other side.

Mars in Gemini Squaring off with Neptune in Pisces is pushing you into an uncomfortable area of sensitivity, forcing you to face your fears of feeling what it is like to be someone other than yourself.

Saturn continues its Squaring with Uranus, as we have discussed the last two weeks, breaking the tension to restructure how you relate to the community with respect for your personal values.

This could be a tense week, but the more you show the courage to be compassionate through your curiosity, the more fluid you will be able to navigate the course of the challenges ahead.

If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

MONDAY, October 10

Mercury in Libra

The Planet of Communication begins transit through the Sign of Relationships from now until October 29.

How can you be more graceful in your communicative approach?

How can you be more eloquent in your relationship conversations?

Are the words you are speaking bringing balance to your relationships?

Are you fair in your verbal expressions?

Use this transit as an opportunity to balance the Scales of all of your relationships.

The key is creating space for all sides to be heard in a conversation, to listen to the vocal tones spoken, and words being chosen.

Last Time: August 29 - November 5, 2021 and August 25 - September 23, 2022

When: October 8 – 12


Mars in Gemini Square Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

For the next few days we’ll be highlighting another difficult alignment, just as we’ve highlighted the challenging alignment between Saturn and Uranus, the past couple of weeks.

Mars, the God of War, the Planet of Action, Aggression, and Conflict is Squaring off with Neptune, the God of Freshwater and the Sea, the Planet of Illusion, Deception, Compassion, and Intuition.

The simple way to think of this alignment is a jet flying into a dense cloud. It could be dangerous to navigate something so quickly when you are having trouble seeing where you are going.

Where are you feeling confusion about direction in life?

Slow down.

Take your time.

Refrain from rushing.

More on this in the days to come…

When: October 7 – 17


Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius Square Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Adding to the intensity of Mars and Neptune is Saturn, the God of Wealth and Time, Squaring off with Uranus, the Planet of Revolution.

This alignment emphasizes the strain between restriction and rebellion. One side is urging society to hold back and be restrained, while the side that represents your senses and self-worth is clamoring for independence.

How can you break out of the shackles and claim your independence?

When: September 30 – October 12

The last time Saturn and Uranus Squared off was February 6 – 26, 2021 and December 23 – 29, 2021. Think back to these days to recant the energy at hand to offer clarity for what could be in store for you this time around.

TUESDAY, October 11

Mars in Gemini Square Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

Though the Planet of Action charging into the Cloudy Planet, Neptune, presents an obvious challenge, it also brings about the possibility for growth.

The growth stems from strengthening your intuition, as your intuition is being strengthened through uncovering the facts.

Mars is transiting the Sign of Communication, urging you to act towards improving your conversational skills.

Are you listening?

Are you asking questions?

Are you making assumptions and acting upon those assumptions?

Neptune in Pisces is opening up your awareness and deepening your ability to follow your intuitive nature.

However, Mars is encouraging you to harness your intuition by asking the questions that support you to back up your intuition with facts.

When: October 7 – 17


The Sun Trine Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius Square the Moon Conjunct Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

The Sun vitalizes the authoritative energy of Saturn, while also invigorating the rebellious nature of Uranus.

Meanwhile, for a brief, but impactful period, the Moon brings an emotional sensitivity to your sense of individualism. At the same time the Moon taps into the responsibilities that weigh you down emotionally.

Are your values reflected in your relationships?

Do your partners hold you accountable to the level of your standards?

Are your relationships supporting you in claiming your responsibility, so you can achieve your desires?

When: September 30 – October 12
