From October 10th to the 29th, Mercury moves back into the sign of Libra to finish up a lengthy transit. Due to the recent Mercury retrograde, Mercury has been dancing between the signs of Virgo and Libra since August 25th when Mercury officially entered the sign of Libra.
With the Mercury retrograde over, Mercury has now made its way back to Libra to finish up the transit. With Mercury in Libra, communication becomes more harmonious and compromising. Tact and diplomacy are the name of the communication game, but it’s still not the best time to make decisions due to Mercury in Libra’s inability to settle on one perspective or option.

With Mercury retrograde in Virgo, we were called to consider if the information we receive is accurate. The saying the devil is in the details applies to Mercury in Virgo, and the retrograde in this sign encouraged us to analyze information thoroughly before using it in a practical manner.
Now that Mercury is direct in Libra, it is also important to consider how we may choose to compromise when speaking and sharing information to maintain relationships with others. Also, the Mercury retrograde in Libra exposed us to various perspectives that made us reconsider what we think.
As Mercury moves direct in Libra, even the perspectives that we held back in August when Mercury first entered Libra could have possibly changed, and this is totally okay. Libra is a cardinal changeable sign that encourages us to consider other perspectives that could ultimately impact what we think. It’s one of the reasons why Mercury in Libra is considered to be such an open-minded, considerate placement.
Finding Balance in Communication
For the next three weeks, Mercury in Libra presents us with the opportunity to achieve balance and harmony in our social interactions and communication with others. We will find that we are more likely to give others the space to express themselves as Mercury in Libra encourages us to be open to varying perspectives. Now is a great time to grant everyone the opportunity to share their side of the story in a balanced, non-judgmental manner.
Mercury in Libra offers the logical detachment that allows us to at least consider the “other side.” It’s one of the reasons why Mercury in Libra is one of the most balanced positions for communication. As an air sign, Libra has the balance and objectivity that allows us to detach from our feelings to consider perspectives…even if we don’t necessarily agree with them.
Likewise, Mercury in Libra makes it possible for us to explore opposing viewpoints without the need for ill feelings. Libra energy enjoys a good debate, but debates and opposing viewpoints don’t have to lead to conflict. Under the energy of Mercury in Libra, we will find that people are more likely to share their perspectives, and as long as everyone is willing to be logical and balanced when communicating, this is great energy for learning more about ourselves through considering the positions of others.
Aim to Be Fair
Fairness in communication is ideal until October 29th. We will be more open to communication styles that are balanced and harmonious. Mercury in Libra will make us more cognizant of what we say to ensure that we are tactful and not rude and upsetting to others. After all, Libra cannot stand anything too brash and rude. So, opt for polite communication in order to be taken seriously during the Mercury in Libra transit.
Given that Libra is a justice-oriented sign, This is a very good time for those who want to settle disputes and disagreements. This is especially the case for those who are seeking legal resolutions as Mercury in Libra encourages the settlement of disputes in a fair and orderly manner. If there are disputes between individuals, getting the assistance of an unbiased mediator is advised. When considering settlements, Mercury in Libra has us choosing options that are fair and beneficial for all parties.
Still Not a Great Time for Decisions
With all the fairness, harmony, and balance that comes with the Mercury in Libra transit, this is still not the best time to make decisions. Because Libra energy is always weighing its options, it is likely that at some point we could come in contact with additional information that will change our minds. It is for this reason, Mercury in Libra is not the best time for making decisions because there are so many perspectives and options to consider. For now, it is best to consider and even discuss various perspectives instead of making concrete decisions.
If a decision is necessary, Mercury in Libra encourages us to choose the path of logic and fairness. Because Libra is a social sign that considers and appreciates the input of others, consulting with a wise mediator or someone who is not emotionally attached to the outcome of a decision is best. If all else fails and making a decision now causes mental stimulation, hold off until Mercury enters the deep waters of Scorpio on October 29th.
With Mercury finally back in Libra, the next three weeks give us the chance to communicate with others from a place of understanding, harmony, and balance. Put your best communication skills on display, be open to other perspectives, and seek fairness in all mental and social exchanges.
