We enter this week with the energy of the waning New Moon and the planet Mercury entering the sign of Libra, so hopefully you have made some plans to make healthy and positive changes in your life. The Libra influence of the day can allow us to see all sides of an issues, but it can also have us challenged in actually taking action because of an inability to make a definitive decision. The positive qualities of Mercury in Libra is being able to see all sides of an issue and bringing fairness to any challenges you may face. This energy will be needed this week to help us offset some challenging energy that is on the way. The Planets Uranus and Pluto are about to make their second square of the year on Tuesday the 18th. This is a tense upsetting energy. It’s a time of challenge, confrontation and unrest. The social unrest we are now seeing can escalate and become even more difficult before it gets better, so that logical fair Mercury in Libra will be needed if we want cooler heads to prevail. Anyone who has Cardinal Signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn from about 5-9 degree’s will be affected by this energy. Since the last time we had this happen was this past June 24th you can look back and see what area of your life was affected and you may find you are revisiting that issue again.
Mercury is a very dominant planet this week, meaning communications of all kinds are difficult, it can be difficult to be heard and it can be difficult to hear what others are trying to say. On Wednesday the 20th you find Mercury right in the mix of the Uranus Pluto square, so again all Cardinal Signs need to be cautious not to over react to something they may hear, all sides of the issues may not be out in the open. This is not a day to make a major decision and its defiantly not the day to be challenging or confrontational as it could spin out of control.
So in general this is a challenging week energetically but each of us can make it easier by avoiding the pitfall of reactiveness and staying in a place that is kind and thoughtful.
