Asteroid Talent is a positive asteroid (out of tens of thousands of asteroids, some of which link to not much and some of which can be kinda harsh). This is literally the asteroid of Talent, and in your natal chart, shows where your biggest talents are. In transit, Talent can show what talents are being spotlighted, how we're approaching them, and how well we're using them.

Asteroid Talent in Libra 2023 Dates:
Asteroid Talent in Libra 2023 General Impact:
Asteroid Talent in Libra puts the asteroid of talent in the sign of relationships, partnerships, alliances, and commitments. This means we may benefit from talents involving others, where we're working with a partner, or where we're focusing on relationships and partnerships. Those who have a way with people, who are charming and mediating, can do best during this time.
Compromise and forging alliances can be helpful during this time as well, and anyone who has a talent for this can benefit. People who are professional negotiators and mediators can be elevated, and those who promote peace, harmony, and balance can get a boost.
We may be more open to commitments, and we can find ways to make new commitments that are of benefit and showcase our talents, and we may feel more comfortable using our talents with partners or in committed relationships. We can also be more comfortable using our talents in one-on-one situations, and when we feel at ease.
With Libra ruling other people, we may want to showcase the talents of others more than our own. We can shout out those we think are talented, and give support to the talents of those we care about.
Note that asteroid Veritas, the asteroid of truth, enters Virgo on the same day that asteroid Talent enters Libra, so there might be some sort of link here with truths coming out relating to talents and others.
Asteroid Talent in Libra 2023 Conjunctions:
Asteroid Talent conjuncts the Sun in Libra on October 4th 2023 at 11 degrees, and the Sun shines a light, so this aspect can shine a light on talents and give them more attention. We may also feel more creative with our talents.
A solar eclipse occurs in Libra on October 14th and it's widely conjunct asteroid Talent, so there can be major focus on some sort of talent with this eclipse, some big partnership, commitment, alliance, etc. (maybe a peace deal?). Talent also conjuncts Mercury in Libra on October 15th at 13 degrees, and this helps us communicate about talents, make use of mental talents, and use our minds with our talents.
Asteroid Talent in Libra will also square, which is a challenging aspect, transit Pluto in Capricorn on November 10th at 28 degrees. I wanted to bring this one up since it's a challenging aspect, and with Pluto, there can be some fighting and frustration involved. We might be fighting over talents, or feel that the fighting we're experiencing is limiting our abilities. We may struggle to find middle ground, something the Libra energy wants, and feel that we're being controlled and manipulated with Pluto.
We need to maximize the Libra energy and be open to compromise, and then commit to it. We need to avoid giving in the fights and letting aggravation win the day.
