Mercury enters Libra on Aug. 27. You’ll see it work its magic immediately when that guy you’ve been trying to get together with finally calls you back. He’ll be all kinds of charming and disarming and full of ideas for having a good time. This is the sort of energy one expects to see with Mercury in Libra because Libra is all about pairing. Now whether or not this has staying power will all depend on the rapport that emerges organically. If things click into place right away (and by click I mean that you get along with each other effortlessly), then this should survive the bumpy passage that the upcoming Mercury retrograde portends. If they don’t, then enjoy him while he’s around. He’s not the worst placeholder to come along.
