Early October is full of planetary transits that set up not only the month, but the fall season in general with great beginnings. The first of which is Mercury's movement into the sign of Libra, a transit that will be opening up paths of communication and allowing us to take a better look at things.
If there have been important matters on your mind, now's the time to be thinking of them and making those decisions before Mercury moves on into Scorpio later this month.

On October 4th, planet Mercury is going to transit into the sign of Libra, a harmonious pairing that will have us seeing great luck and prowess in our daily interactions with other people.
Mercury is the planet of communication, while Libra is not just a sign of fairness and clarity, but it's also an air sign. Air signs are also about communication, intellect, social matters, and connection.
So, what should we expect for this transit?
In the coming weeks (or until October 21st, when Mercury moves back out of Libra and into Scorpio), you might feel a bit lighter. It's not that any challenges you're facing will instantly disappear, but you'll feel a little more confident in facing them, then a lot more confident once you actually take the first few steps toward a solution.
You'll feel a heightened ability to stop and think before you speak. You'll feel an instinct to watch your words, to preserve the feelings of others, and to not rock the boat too much, even if going against the grain is usually more you're style.
Taking It All In Stride
This period is one of peace and harmony. Not in the idyllic sense, but in a more practical way, one that's applicable to the smaller happenings of our everyday lives.
Things will flow smoothly, freely, and without friction. Even ideas or occurrences that you don't agree with or don't enjoy will wash right off you, and you'll find you're not getting as hung up on the little things as you might be used to doing.
The general noise of life will quiet for a bit. It won't be silent, but it won't be so overwhelming either.
Now is the perfect time to reconnect with people we might have had a falling out or a fight with. Whatever words were said during that altercation will be put in a new perspective, as both of you will be able to see the bigger picture that led to your disagreement.
This isn't to say you should go and forgive anyone and everyone who's wronged you. It's more of a call to really look at relationships that fell apart for petty reasons, analyze them and see if you want to repair them, then take the necessary steps toward doing so.
Now's The Time
Now is also a great time to be making big decisions, especially when other people are involved. This could mean moving, a career change, even planning a big trip. You'll all be on the same page throughout and will be able to communicate your thoughts, ideas, hopes, and concerns without any issue.
Should any friction arise, know that you're under Libra's watchful eye, the sign of diplomacy and fairness. Whatever conflict may begin to bubble will be swiftly silenced by open conversation and better innate understanding of one another's perspective.
Stand Your Ground
Here's the caveat, though, that you may find yourself being a little too fair. Just because Mercury will be in Libra for a time, that doesn't mean that people won't be capable of doing bad things. If something heinous happens, don't lean into the urge to be overly forgiving because you want to maintain a period of peace.
If someone is deserving of criticism or punishment, give it to them! Justice and harmony isn't about everything being perfect all the time, it's about fair consequences for those who need them. You're under no obligation to let them off the hook.
The Threads That Tie
This transit is also a great time to examine our interconnectedness with the world. Beyond direct communication, it's good to reflect on the way our actions and decisions impact others, and how they can circle back to us in time.
We all reap what we sow, this is true at any point in the year regardless of planetary alignment. What this period is good for is being able to see the seeds we planted, where we planted them, and how those resulting plants might impact one another when they mature.
Look To The Future
You'll feel scoped out, able to examine things from a third-person perspective. A heightened sense of wisdom will be present in all of us during this time, but that doesn't mean everyone around you will know how to use it, so you can still be on your guard, as those types will appear more confident as a result.
Overall, this is a wonderful time to really inspect your current place in life and identify the issues that need resolving before you're able to move forward. Devise a plan, get to talking, and allow this positive energy to flow within you rather than around you.
The best type of knowledge to pair with transits like these is knowledge about your fixed sign placements, the ones given to you when you were born. To learn about these placements and what they mean for you, you'll need a personalized birth chart reading.
