With Mercury no longer retrograde, dear Libra, you’re likely to enjoy improved relations on the job or with the public, and later this month, with friends and groups.

You are more able to express yourself professionally, as well as to talk about your long-term goals and plans as your confidence builds and the information you need comes in. Goal-setting, reputation, status-related issues, and friendships gain clarity and then momentum.

Don’t rush to put new plans into motion yet. Instead, take your time in the same way that Mercury will gradually work its way back to average speed. Today’s Venus-Chiron aspect is helpful.

There can be some beautiful connections made or particular pleasure derived from friends and plans for the future.

You prefer to see others for their good traits, but you’re not over-idealizing them. This balance is perfect for learning about yourself, your needs, and important people in your life.

Perfect comfort comes from perfect trust. The start of August heralds a strong sense of teamwork, collaboration, and future-forward thinking.

If something in your system feels murky or your emotional foundations uncertain, remember that only love is real. Judge not what you don’t know, and communicate clearly and directly.

Over analyzing the motives of others is hazardous; you can’t fully know what’s in another’s head. To become lost in endless interpretation of error only gives it power. Listen with your heart to truly understand.

In his first full day in direct motion, Mercury is also now wrapping up all planetary activity in your career sector. It will take Mercury another 10 days to trek back over the ground that he has just finished retrograding back over and will, in fact, cover for the third time.

As the last planet here and with the North Node ready to take the reins when he leaves, Mercury’s first full day in direct motion marks a turning point.

When it comes to your personal and professional goals and ambitions, it is time to look to the future and to get serious about having a game plan and resolutions.

Today’s Quote: “Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”
