When Mercury moves into Libra at the beginning of the month, it is time to make love, not war. Negotiate and be diplomatic. Take the time to meditate on the options- do your best to come up with a plan in which everybody wins. Avoid passive aggressive tendencies. Be sincere and sympathetic. Justice and compromise are the lessons to master at this time.
When the new moon falls on the in Libra we can finish up the projects that have taken center stage recently – and shift our focus to relationships and interconnectedness. Step out into the world and revel in your interactions with others. Appreciate different points of view, and rousing debate. Seek inspirational art and works of writing, listen to beautiful harmonies. Rejoice in the spirit of cooperation, the value of teamwork- lend a helping hand. Never underestimate the power of grace and sincerity. Kill anything that stands in your way – with kindness.
Loving Venus will turn retrograde in Scorpio on the 8th, offering us the chance to take a deeper look at the people and things in our world, discerning where true value lies. Our minds see only black and white, while around us there are shades of grey. Avoid feeling resentful, jealous, irritated, etc. Take this time to clear up unfinished business. People from the past may reappear for closure, or reconciliation. Old friends may return to enjoy some more of your company. If you owe someone an apology, now would be a great time to do it. Begin to rediscover your true value. Begin to accept yourself exactly as you are, and accept that everyone else is human too, just trying to do there best. Begin to remember what makes you happy.
When mental Mercury joins Venus in Scorpio on the 21st we have fewer words and deeper thoughts. Our feelings and intuitions become more intense, our minds probe for answers. Appreciate all that is profound and mysterious. Avoid superficial conversation, obsessive tendencies, and single-minded focus. Scorpio empowers us with its clarity. Discover hidden motivations. Engage in deep conversation.
The full moon falls on the 19th in Aries, and we come face to face with our own individual needs. How can we satisfy our desires, and still fulfill the agreements that exist within our connections? Balance is the key here. The fight or flight response is stronger than usual. Try to keep your emotions on simmer. Be honest and allow the truth to set you free. Once you have cleared your plate of obstacles, the time will be ripe for fun. Get outside and soak up the fresh air. Laugh, play, do something that you can feel proud of. Remember to live a little.
Many Blessings And Pura vida!
