What Mercury In Libra Means For Each Zodiac Sign

Mercury enters the sign of Libra on September 5th and will leave on September 27th. This is a transit that will have us practicing the Diplomatic values of the sign. The scales will be tipped with Saturn and Mars, causing stressors to Mercury as the transit progresses. We must remember to keep our cool and to power through with peacekeeping. This year, the Cardinal signs will be battling it out and things will continue to intensify up until December. A focus here should be on intellectual control, not emotional. It is easy to lose our composure and control with Mars in Aries, but at the end of the day, being patient and logical will allow for more successes than failures.


It’s a good time for you to practice some diplomacy this month. With Mars currently in your sign, there are waves of impulsivity that will have you regretting things and putting your foot in your mouth. Mercury adds some grace to your communication style. Expect an enlightening and busy period as you connect with more people but discover new ways to approach them with your evolving communication style. Be ready to impress and to shine during this transit, which will require you to practice more patience.


You are a Venus-ruled sign, so this transit will be suitable for you and might feel easier to handle. Mercury here helps boost your thoughts, goals, and ambitions. You will be ready to get prepared, and if the going gets tough, you are also ready to make some damage control. This is a time where you will be more focused on health and routine. Make sure not to let the anxiety get to you, but to channel this transit in a way that will allow you to push your productivity levels to new heights.


Air Mercury for the air signs seems like a great and fascinating time where you can get the creative energy and the confidence flowing. Mercury in Libra can be a period where you meet a lot of people and have the power to have those enamored by what you have to say. Like Libras, you are very much in your element now. The only focus here would be to make sure that you are not creating tension in your friend circles by saying harsh things that you could regret.
