Heart, Head, and Happiness
Every year or so, we are in luck when we get to experience the energy of a beautiful Venus with the intelligence of a brilliant Mercury – sort of a good Heart to Head Meetup.
This occurs on September 5th when Venus enters the Vedic sign of Libra, the sign of relationships, peace, and harmony, while Mercury cruises along in its most favorite Vedic sign of Virgo, the sign of the intellect, understanding, and reason.
It can feel like you are no longer conflicted or confused over your feelings and your thoughts.
Here is how to take advantage of these 3 delightful weeks until September 26 which is when Mercury begins its often dreaded retrograde.
Venus in Libra is perfect for exercising your creativity and artistic nature while Mercury in Virgo is excellent for organizing and paying attention to the details that will make your project successful. Think along the lines of redecorating or refashioning areas of your life, and you will be pleased with the results.
This is also a good time to work on relationships (Venus in Libra) through thoughtful communications or even counseling (Mercury in Virgo). The challenge here is to watch for the critical nature of Mercury in Virgo that may push Venus to a perfection that is not yet obtainable.
It is a great time to apply the intellect to art, especially in all areas of design work, so that the result is both pleasing and practical, be it a piece of furniture, an article of clothing, or a well-designed mala.
Communicate! You can more likely speak what your heart is feeling during this time. Be aware, however, of any tendencies to over analyze or over-compromise in these conversations.
When Mercury does go retrograde on the 26th, it can still be a good time to clear up past misunderstandings in relationships. It would be good to get all this in the past before October 1.
Why? Both Mercury and Venus enter the Vedic sign of Scorpio for the entire month of October and that will bring different challenges as well as opportunities.
A Mudra for Venus and Mercury
You may find this mudra helpful for balancing both Venus and Mercury energies, no matter what month it may be:
Interlace the fingers together so that the outside thumb presses into the mound below the other thumb (the mound of Venus). Extend the two small fingers (associated with Mercury) out so they touch at the tips and point away from the body. Think nice thoughts!
