Sep - 23th Oct
Mercury's return to Libra today is a stepping stone or a head start before the Sun returns tomorrow, to begin your birthday month and new solar year. You've already had a lot of time to think about what you want from this new solar year and have even had a chance to dive deep into your real needs and priorities. Yet Mercury returns with a chance to get your head in the game and to develop a mindset that says 'let's figure this out'. This is when the focus shifts to the 'when, where and how'.
Mercury's return to Libra yesterday means that when the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year today, you have your head in the game from the get go. Until now the focus has been on the 'what' and now it is time to focus on the 'when, where and how'. Instead of looking towards your new solar year and what you want it to bring, it is finally here. This is the one time each year when you really can say that this is the first day of the rest of your life.
The last time you moved into your birthday month and new solar year with Mars in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart was in 1986. With the Moon here now, just two days before your birthday month and new solar year is due to begin, you're already getting a taste of things to come. Starting your new solar year with Mars fuelling your romantic and creative passions will impact the whole year, with today's playful lunar vibes already grabbing your attention.
