Mercury leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Libra, and will stick around here for longer than usual–until December 9th. You’re thinking more often about your practical affairs or in practical terms during this period.

It’s a great time for thinking about improvements to business pursuits and for organizing your finances. As more bodies enter this area of your chart in the weeks ahead, you’ll see more emphasis on sticking with the status quo, cultivating patience, and working on building your resources.

With Mercury here, it’s a time for patient planning. This is also one of the best Mercury cycles for building and growing your natural talents.

It’s a great time for focusing on matters that truly need attention, as you’re less likely to become distracted. You’re attracted to useful information and hands-on learning.

An undercurrent of goodwill can turn an everyday situation from drab to vivacious today. Let the understated ways that friends step up to bat for friends or loved ones go the extra mile for each other reinforce your gratitude for the circle of devotion that exists in your life.

Whether someone’s circumstances are like your own or lightyears apart, there is always something helpful you can do to brighten their world. Put big affection into even the smallest act of kindness, and trust that it matters because it does.

This is one week when each day is a new revelation, with your birthday month literally becoming more exciting by the day.

It began with last weekend’s New Moon and the chance this gave you to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. Yet just days later, Mars return to Libra makes anything you may have committed to redundant.

This is Mars’ first visit to Libra in two years and here now until 18th November, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is here with a fresh load of energy, motivation, passion and a chance to inspire your competitive spirit.
