The Mercury Communiqué: Mercury in Libra

Keen Category: Astrology Advice

The planet Mercury with illustrated constellation of the Libra scales

Libra is the planet of partnerships. Whenever a planet moves through this sign, one-on-one relationships of all sorts are emphasized. Love relationships are of course the most important, but business partnerships, parent-child, boss-employee and teacher-student match-ups, are all ruled by the zodiac's sign of The Scales.

When Mercury is in Libra, communication between partners becomes of great importance. Read below for your zodiac sign as well as the signs of the people with whom you have a close relationship. Mercury is only in Libra for a short while, as it is moving at its fastest planetary motion of the year. Mercury enters Libra on Sunday, October 3 and moves on to Scorpio on Wednesday October 20.
