- Monday, Sep 29 2014 Venus enters Libra
Venus finally leaves the sign of it’s fall to enter her dignity of Libra. People with planets in Libra will be feeling the love, generosity and good luck bestowed by this lesser benefic (Jupiter being the greater.)
Whether you have planets/points in Libra or not, you may notice that things seem to be going better than before, especially in anything ruled by Venus: women, money, creativity, art, music, romance, relationships, negotiations, and diplomacy.
People want to enjoy pleasantries and indulge from now until Venus leave Libra on October 23rd. This is a wonderful time for enjoying time with friends, building new relationships (business or personal) and earning money.

This aspect may bring about intense ego conflicts. Leaders may have power struggles now and clash on account of them. Competitions get more fierce and may get underhanded during this time. Dirty tricks and surprise attacks in the political arena are possible.
This is currently being played out on the world’s stage with ISIS attacks and other nations responding in kind.
On a day-today level, avoid demanding that you get or way at this time or it could set off a huge fight. Also, be aware that others may try to push you towards a certain action or goal, try to be diplomatic and avoiding any such situations.
Wait until a later time to approach bosses, authority figures or government entities for any reason.

This means problems with communications, travel, and transactions of all kinds. Scorpio rules joint finances, life/death issues and transformation.
Mercury in Scorpio is intense, honest yet secretive, verbally aggressive yet emotional. Topics the include mystery, murder, destruction, and other intensely emotional events may dominate the news and be the topic of conversation.
One recent example is the the disgruntled worker at Chicago O’Hare’s airport who sabotaged the air traffic control tower, which has disrupted thousands of flights. The news reports that things won’t return to normal until the end of October.
Mercury in Scorpio is excellent for psychology and therapy. Retrogrades sometimes refers to going back over previously covered ground or it can be the return of something.
This is a good time to go back and research, study, investigate something you may have studied before. In a second search you may discover a hidden treasure.
When Mercury goes retrograde, news, information, any way that one communicates may be affected. Fax machines may stop working, emails aren’t received, and the news stories may be conflicting.
Be aware of anything new or news that springs up during Mercury retrograde as things may change. Anything begun may have to be altered later on.
On a positive note, Mercury retrograde is an excellent time to go back and work or finish something that had begun at an earlier time.
