With Mercury Rx in Libra, you want to rethink, reconsider, review, reevaluate ideas and FEELINGS in the house where Mercury is transiting Rx (that’s the house(s) that contain 16 Libra to 2 Scorpio). Put a lovely, caring and compassionate ‘soft focus’ there.
Ask, what constitutes sharing, partnership and collaboration to me? The most primary way you can improve your life at this time is to re-frame your notions of relationship to (input the house(s) involved). Tips for your re-frame and reflection below:
ARIES: Mercury in the 7th house - Communication with partners, practical or intimate, goes a bit zany– muddled and/or blurred! It’s not the best time to come to any conclusions as wires get crossed. Use your gut feelings to make choices that can’t be delayed, and ask what you believe about partnerships/creative collaborations. Rethink all relationships, without judgement.
TAURUS: Mercury in the 6th house – Mercury Rx through your 6th house of well-being says reconsider your lifestyle and daily habits. Is this really what you want, or are you there because of circumstances ‘beyond your control?’ (ha!) Take stock of your nutrition, exercise, healthy care, comfort zone and routine. Start with what you believe about your body! More Self-Love!
GEMINI: Mercury in the 5th house – This is a time to go into cruise control on the creative realm and practice the art of allowing. Think play, recreation, romance and relaxation. Consider where you can expand your beliefs and live more in the ‘now’. The goal is to drop judgment and experience life in the red hot moment. And it will be red hot, when you allow it!
CANCER: Mercury in the 4th house – Thoughts yearn towards to home life, family and symbiotic connections. Give yourself enough ‘me’ time to appreciate recent inner growth and development. Ask what family means to you. Home sweet home? Is there anything you believe that could be limiting your experience of others? Listen. Love. Reflect!
LEO: Mercury in the 3rd house – The Mercury Rx puts the Trickster in control of your tongue, (which might be amazing). Still, you might say one thing when they hear another. Emails, sans body language, get misconstrued. Don’t even think about sending text msg without punctuation. This excellent for revising manuscripts, biz plans or creative projects. But, check your tires.
VIRGO: Mercury in the 2nd house – Use this Mercury Rx to get in touch with what really gives you a sense of peace and happiness, then let go of the outmoded core values and actions that aren’t taking you there. Awareness is the first step. It will lead to skill and talent development that is more authentic than you ever though possible. Expect a clean fresh $$ Vibe.
LIBRA: Mercury in the 1st house - Mercury Rx meanders through your home, work, Self and relationship life. Everything! Best reflect on what you believe about what you do, where you do it, whom you do it with. How? Just set an intention to notice the things you like about your life and smile. Exhale and limitations are going, going, gone.
SCORPIO: Mercury in the 12th house - With Mercury Rx in your solar 12th house, it’s time to go ‘in’ and listen to your dreams. Not daydream fantasies of achievement, goals, challenges and actions, but really sink deep into the depths of your soul. What messages are welling up from there? Watch for synchronicity. Tune into feelings, receive and immerse.
SAGITTARIUS: Mercury in the 11th house - Mercury Rx in your 11th house of friends and groups can turn the usual gatherings/community into a mix of emoticons, all rolling about in different directions. The question is how do you feel? Allow for a new view when it comes to social connections, and find ways to relax amid the tension. Gems emerge when you aren’t looking.
CAPRICORN: Mercury in the 10th house – Career, mission or profession can feel like a dream time journey, with the auto focus weaving in and out! This is good news! For the next three weeks you let go of trying to micromanage your future and ‘make things happen.’ Let your neurons ease off so the universe can open new doors to infinite possibilities! Schedule light.
AQUARIUS: Mercury in the 9th house -Travel or study plans turn into the trickster’s playground for the next three weeks. Deep breaths. Remember, it’s not about forging ahead right now, but finding peace and serenity in the midst of contrast. Take time out to reconsider your world view. Is it what you think, or what you are expected to think?
PISCES: Mercury in the 8th house - Mercury Rx in your house of shared resources has you reconsidering any joint financial arrangements, both income and debt. As you sift through possibilities, you’ll discover creative ways to organize and restructure the boundaries to your liking. You decide, but not yet. Let it marinate for a while. Go have fun.
