Have the challenging astrological transits of the past few weeks left you yearning for good vibrations, balance, and compassionate interactions? Then the neutral energy coming your way this week can be considered a gift from the stars!

We just experienced a Full Moon in Aries on October 9th, and the stars slow down this week to give us a bit of a break. We’ll experience one major transit on October 10th, when Mercury – the planet of information, communication, and the mind – moves into balance-seeking Libra.

Mercury recently spent nearly a month in retrograde, bringing challenges to all sorts of areas of our lives, from short-distanced travel to communication, transactions, and even technology! It’s finally moving forward once more, and this time, into the Air sign Libra, known for its harmonious energy. 

While Mercury direct feels like quite enough relief at the moment, Mercury in Libra can bring even more harmony, diplomatic energy, and negotiations in our interactions with others. 

In other words, after nearly a month of misunderstandings and communication mishaps, you can breathe a sigh of relief as Mercury in Libra swoops in to bring more peace and tranquility than you ever imagined! 

And on top of that, we’re still enjoying the beauty and good vibrations of Libra season – meaning this is a week to enjoy friendly communication, negotiation, and appreciation for all the beauty in this world!

October 10 – October 16 is a Week to Appreciate Beauty, Communicate with Kindness, & Embrace Compromise

Mercury in Libra brings the opportunity to infuse our interactions with kindness, diplomacy, and a sense of balance. If there were any challenging or difficult conversations tabled during Mercury retrograde, Mercury in Libra is the perfect time to revisit these matters.

Have you been avoiding certain conversations or confrontations? This is the time to approach these subjects with compassion and warmth – you may be surprised at how smoothly these interactions go right now!
