Mercury in Libra Retrograde and Saturn


Mercury in Libra retrograde has added a very internal focus to navigating relationships (while Mercury in Libra would normally be an extroverted expression of Mercury) so consider that while it is also in sextile alignment with Saturn there is an emphasis on being more methodical and practical in communications than usual. I have been hearing some people have a lot they want to say but don’t feel it’s the time. (Or there’s been breakthroughs by going ahead and saying it anyway. To choose!)

This withholding feeling does not have to mean it is for the sake of repression or control (Capricorn/Saturn shadow zone here) though we may be wondering where we are standing on this line. The other side of the line is more about a respect of timing. Libra wants to stay cool and not Ba-GAWK about whatever. Libra’s wondering about how to balance with the natural unfolding of events over time (Saturn in Sagittarius) and to communicate accordingly, not out of step.

Feeling it? You are welcome to release the pressure valve here in the comments, or talk to me about a reading if it’s a concern you want to work out with me (and, this always applies. I’m here to help!)

    Hey Sabrina! I have been wondering about this. As food for thought: How would you choose the right timing? If something is holding you back then is that mostly a ‘no’ answer?

      I almost want to say yes. But there are so many possibilities. What I’m thinking is that the Saturn in Sagittarius part of this is asking for a direct experience with our own intuition and knowing.. part of me has held a value of just telling all and not worrying about consequence, and so I’ve found myself being hesitant to say something and then trying to get myself to do it anyway, imagining that it’s just a matter of courage or fear and I have to choose one. But then it was happening enough that I was realizing it was just my intuition.. so I would let things go (surrender) and events would align in ways more intelligently than I could have made happen myself previously. This Libra season I have been seriously learning so much about weighing options. Saturn in Sagittarius is so new (1 degree) and Mercury is in 0 degrees Libra right now so there’s also a feeling of a lot of possibility. Like things really could go either way. But Saturn is weighing in with a sense of collectedness.

    Well, for me it is a 2 – edged sword. Saturn now beginning to oppose my Venus in Gemini and it feels like “shut up and wait.”

    Glad there’s a conversation happening 🙂 I’m feeling the sense of being patient and listening right now. It’s not without a bit of nervous introspection, but despite… There’s a sense of roominess to it all

      Me too! I wonder how we’ll feel with Mercury direct – still stationing over this harmonic with Saturn, but now with more emphasis on conversation without instead of just within.
