Mercury/Mars pump up the social (Libra) activism, with assertive (Mars) thoughts about truth and justice (Sagittarius). Mercury in Sag can be blunt, but Mars in Libra is assertive in acceptable ways - always polite. And the harmonious aspect between these two suggests that words can be delivered with maximum impact and minimum offence. Great if you want to grab people's attention but you don't want to repulse them.
Vesta and BML are at zero degrees of their respective signs, supporting each other in their new chapters. Vesta's obsessive devotion will bolster Lilith's slow ascent as she works for authority and success. Vesta/BML also suggests a focus on the issues behind the new rules/structures that Lilith finds herself in. This is the aspect of intensive labour/focus involving women's issues, sexual issues or the woman/outsider trying to succeed in a hostile environment. Dig in and keep your eyes on the prize - power arises from your unwavering dedication.
