The Autumn Equinox arrives the same day as the Sun glides into Libra on Monday September 22, 2014. Relationships of all types are now in the forefront for the next few weeks – family, friends, marriages, business partners. It’s fun to be with people, to chat, flirt, cajole. The 7th sign of the Zodiac, ruled by Venus, seeks cooperation, genial negotiations in both business and personal relationships.
Mercury, Communication planet ruler of chatty Gemini and analytical Virgo in Air sign Libra since 9/2/14, will remain until 9/28/14. It will return again on 10/11/14, until 10/25/14, while Mercury goes into its Retrograde period. (The backward motion will actually begin on 10/5/14 in Scorpio.) It should make for some clever, smart dinner conversation.
The Libra way is to see both sides of an issue before making decisions. However, seeking harmony by trying to be “fair” can sometimes lead to appearing indecisive. Or, using the “Pros/Cons” list method for making decisions can just strings the selection process out. Be aware that important action can be stalled by over think. Paying attention to instinct and being honest will give a more direct line to a choice. Don’t hesitate to show your spine when needed (some may be surprised when the Libra inner tensile strength is revealed), you’ll still be loved!
As always, your experience of the Sun in a particular sign depends most upon where it appears in your chart, but a Libra Sun does set a mood to benefit us all. Edges can be smoothed off of some contentious interactions, they may soften and even be resolved. Libra wants to cast a glow of congeniality. It’s all about balance, socializing, networking, getting along.
