Light a candle made from the essence of gardenia and drop it into your heart chakra as you divinely sense that all is right with the world. You are ready for this moment in your life. You have been through the chaos of lessons and the trenches of self-doubt, and now you will rise by honoring what is morally and divinely right as you focus on manifesting your dreams.  

Mercury, the planet that rules communication, shifts into justice-seeking Libra on Wednesday, October 4, joining Mars and the Sun. Mercury in Libra will emphasize partnerships and conversations with others, so when manifesting, working with others and even asking for help will become highlighted.

But, more than just themes of collaboration, Mercury in Libra holds reign over the divine and moral compass of the world. It's time to check in to ensure you align with the universe and operate from your highest self. By embracing the scales of divine justice within yourself and your life, you can focus on manifesting all you desire, knowing you are working with the universe's energies. 



In manifesting, trying to serve up to another what you have been dealt with can be tempting, but you only focus on what is behind you rather than what's ahead. Mercury in Libra will sort out anything from your past that may have been unfair or unjust, so all you need to do is concentrate on what you want to create in your future.
