Mercury moves into Libra late this evening, followed closely by the sun tomorrow night. It’s a big shift from all the earthy/watery energy currently pervading the cosmic atmosphere.
Libra is the sign of justice. Strangely enough, all I’ve been reading about over the last week is the drama surrounding the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. It’s turned into an episode of “Law & Order: SVU,” only without Olivia Benson there to save the day. But will justice be served once these two planets enter the fray? I hope so! I can’t take much more of this bullshit.
Unfortunately, Libra is the sign of passive/aggressive bullshit. Sometimes it takes so long for a decision to come down when Libra is in the picture that people resort to using underhanded tactics to disrupt the process. Libra energy is sometimes vacillating and wishy-washy, and not difficult to undermine.
I don’t know what to expect when the Kavanaugh hearings resume on Monday, but I’m sure that we are nowhere near the finale of this shitshow. In the meantime, I’m going to take advantage of the more-beneficial aspects of the sun’s transit through the sign and continue to work on balancing the elements of my life in a manner that makes me feel more hopeful for the future. I’ve spent much of the past year discussing the contentment I feel lately, and that has to do with a balanced approach to my own health and wellness. Libra is a cardinal sign, so I can’t forget that its energy is direct in nature, despite its occasional lapse into vacillation. I’m moving forward on a path at the moment, and I can’t allow myself to be distracted by people who insist upon revisiting or reliving the past.
With the sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all in Cardinal signs from September 22 through October 9, and Pluto turning direct on September 30, perhaps we should all try to look forward. Dredging up the past may be necessary right now, but keeping our eyes on the future is the only way that we’re going to get out of this current cycle without feeling as if we have been the victims of circumstance.
