Happy New Year! Welcome to a new year, a new place or true love or both to come home to and form a new daily routine. You are eager to enjoy your life with gusto after you let go of deep insecurities for rich intimacy. A broadened perspective on enjoyment adds romance and joy, and a smaller waist-line.
Mercury uproots your home’s four-walls to recreate a new home life. You are in the thick of Mercury Retrograde in the middle of New Year celebrations as if there were no worst time! Or, is this retrograde a mixed blessing?
When Mercury Retrogrades, he physically goes backward in his orbit. His celestial retrace occurs in your Palace of Home. Lately, your home has you whiplashed between sweet and bitter. The embitterment is unearthed by Mercury as he tills the grounds of your home reign to purge you of toxic, sour and wasteful issues. He already visited, and was retrograde, in your Palace of Home, Jan 7th – 16th, 2016; so this is your second wild ride in your at home in one year. At that point in your life, your home was uncertain. Harmony lacked, but alas, time changes your ideals and naturally sways you to improve.
Mercury throws obstacles on your way to home-improvements because he is a staunch perfectionist. Your vision, plans and goals were solid, but you lacked the lessons on creating harmony at home. You are now more able to create a better foundation for a home full of love. The commitments and investments in your closest relationships are evolving, in spite of the issues. Many issues come to the surface to be finally resolved. The channels to intimacy, honesty and truth are clearer by the day. Mercury re-orders your home life with easier payments, bigger or simpler accommodations, and remodeling. He also inspires parental love and nurturing in your life by starting a conversation between you and a parent; most likely your mother. If you hope to get pregnant, but struggled to understand why, Mercury can provide the answers. The uncertainty of your home life subsides as Mercury’s gives you renewed hope.
It is a new year, and, though you may start with a less than ideal situation with Mercury Retrograde, you have a whole year to set your path straight (or gay, just be free and happy!), and make it ideal! Jan 5th – 12th, Mercury Retrogrades so far back so as to recede into the previous palace and seeks to broaden your mind with more knowledge. Your sense of self is eager to expand beyond the current status of your life. You can learn a new skill, go to school, start a new program to enrich your mind. As there is so much energy in your home palace (maternal) and your Palace of Enjoyment (true love), with changes coming to your day (Palace of Wellbeing), oh Libra…2017 begins with a big dose of reality. The revelations on these fronts enable you to know what to do with yourself, with life, with your future. Look to Jan 9th, to have the words to state your mission and prerogative. Mercury combines all your learning of 2016 in a easy to know, which allows you to state your new truth in easy terms. These terms may be easy, but they come from intense lessons, at times hardship. You reclaim power in knowing your mission in life.
You express your truth authentically fearless when Mercury moves back into your Palace of Home. From Jan 13th – Feb 7th, your authentic power forges ahead in great strides to better your home. The confidence you gain in self is conveyed through your words, which others are quick to accept. Real estate agents, doctors, your mother, educators, and spouses rally to support and cheer you on. Harmony at home is restored with wholesome order from which to start your day and launch into the outside world.
Your home takes new form under the Palace of Home. The needs, desires and dreams of 2016 differ in 2017 with clarity and an urgent call to act. The call may come with new of a pregnancy (congratulations!), a new home, apartment, or lease, or an opportunity to rekindle ties to your family. Our home, for each of us, is where we rest our weary bones. In 2017, for Libra, it is how you re-root yourself into the earth: your true home. The Earth is your home sweet home, and you have every right to be authentically fearless in your home.
