Get ready for talking to become a big part of how you spend your time during this transit, as well as for your love life to start to blossom effortlessly. We’ve consolidated the most important aspects of these planetary movements to give you a clear path into more enjoyable and positive experiences. As always, we also prep you with the potential pitfalls to be aware of with this change in the psychological landscape so you can continue to move forward and live your best life.
Let’s look at the dates so we know when this energy will start how long it will last. Mercury enters Scorpio on October 3, and Venus enters Scorpio on October 8. The other major influences during this transit include Saturn moving direct on September 18th, and the Full Moon in Libra on September 14th. With the Moon, Mercury, and Venus in Libra on September 14th, expect that day to have all the flavors of this justice-seeking, beauty appreciating zodiac sign.
With Mercury in Libra, we can expect our conversations to have some fun new energy and here is why.
Libra is an Air sign and likes to chat it up. They also are very interested in social causes, art, ideas, and love to have a healthy debate. This social energy wants to find a way that everyone can feel heard which means we will be more inclined to listen and see the other side of a situation. Because the goal for Libra is to mediate and find a resolution, they will communicate with loving and non-combative energy.
They are good at helping mend broken bonds and it’s in their nature to help people get along again. Thus, if you’ve been having frustrations connecting with people, this can heal those dynamics naturally, like water making a plant grow.
Be aware of any self-righteous communicating or boasting of intellectual prowess that is indicative of insecurities. If someone is sounding like a know-it-all, just choose to have compassion for why they may feel less than accepted or why they feel the need to impress.
Everyone’s insecurities come from somewhere. Instead of trying to be right and prove your point, let go of the idea of winning the debate and focus on listening to understand. This will lower stress and allow you to feel more peaceful during this transit.
Love is Beautiful & Balanced
Because Venus rules Libra, Libran energy is really amplified during this transit.
Libra is all about balance and bringing peace so you can expect your relationships to feel like they are smoothing out during this time. You can also expect positive energy to be infused into your relationships because Libra is very gregarious, loving, and friendly energy. You can use this time to enjoy the company of others because Libra is extroverted energy that is stimulated around others.
Keep an eye out for people that become a bit overly social or overly indulgent in romantic pursuits as they may feel like the sky is the limit as if they have drunk a very potent aphrodisiac tea. Venus, being the planet of love and beauty, shoots cupid’s arrow into the collective subconscious with the energy of the sign it’s in.
Therefore, if someone has not dealt with insecurities or are seeking validation to boost their ego, they may be seeking attention in any way they can get it. That means if you’re in the dating scene, beware of people just looking for compliments who don’t seem to care about you. And don’t be that person that is fishing for adoration instead of trying to be a good person which is what gives you true fulfillment.
