The planet that supports the development of intelligence, Mercury , being in the sign of Libra, occupies a seemingly strong position that gives a person intuition, a sense of beauty, love for the graceful expression of thoughts and determination in protecting the interests of the unjustly offended. He is a born advocate, passionately defending high ideals.
However, Mercury in Libra is subject not only to the influence of Venus , but also of Chiron, which makes it rush from plus to minus in the heat of the contradictions of its own mind. Under certain circumstances, the native can be cold and sincere, a sincere companion and an arrogant cynic, confusing the interlocutors. Making decisions in his inner court, he hesitates for a long time between “yes” and “no”, and in order to establish a trusting contact with him, you need to understand the foundations of Venus-Chironian thinking.
Features of behavior
A pleasant bonus for the owner of Mercury in Libra is eternal youth, manifested in a spirit thirsty for knowledge and new achievements, which energetically rejuvenates the body. The native is outwardly calm and peaceful, and only a gaze sharpened like a steel blade betrays unbending willpower and innate authority. He does not need sharp corners, conflicts and quarrels. A diplomatic mindset and confidence in your own authority allows you to find the right words to pacify opponents. The qualities characteristic of the carrier of Mercury in Libra are revealed according to the position in the houses and aspects:
- tremendous self-control: a person does not allow negative emotions to splash out in public;
- perseverance, self-discipline, steady movement towards an inspiring goal;
- the ability to balance between down-to-earth realism and bold dreams, without falling into rainbow illusions;
- the degree of assimilation of information is proportional to the aesthetic appearance of the teacher – he will not take seriously an untidy, poorly dressed teacher or interlocutor;
- an ineradicable desire to restore justice and improve the world;
- quarrels and swearing reduce the clarity and adequacy of thinking, encourage the native to hide from the cruel world;
- the development of intelligence is facilitated by creative activities – painting, dancing, singing and recitation;
- an attempt to take into account conflicting points of view and derive a common denominator of benefit leads to internal torment.
The owners of Mercury in Libra are people of beauty and harmony. They hate to be shouted at or nagged at a rude form. Collaboration and learning in a gloomy atmosphere will end in total collapse. It is vital for them to be among like-minded people in the field of government, art, music, design or fashion, where they flourish and show the talent of leadership and creator to the maximum.
Male and female
A man with harmonious Mercury in Libra rules the ball with an iron hand in a velvet glove. He is gentle in the form of expressing tough decisions, but adamant, although he is ready to compromise if he is well argued and offered a profitable alternative. The affected planet inclines to deceit, the cause of which is not insidiousness, but the fear of disappointing one of the many acquaintances.
In an effort to please, the weakened Mercury in Libra forces the ward to voice not a sincere point of view, but what the interlocutor wants to hear, or the native deliberately speaks to the enemy, pretending to be an ally, but acts as it suits him. This is especially pronounced in relationships with the fair sex – you should not unconditionally trust the dizzying compliments and confessions of the Venus-Mercurian.
A woman with Mercury in Libra is full of original, interesting ideas, however, half of them does not have time to implement because of the fear of offending or offending someone from her relatives and colleagues. She is often ashamed of advancing her career path, fearing to make enemies and envious people. Being a born diplomat, she easily settles conflicts and feuds, although she remains emotionally devastated when faced with negativity.
She, like air, needs creativity and communication with highly moral and spiritual people. Despite the ability to convince anyone even of absurd theories, in marriage she adjusts to the man, pushing personal interests into the background.
Retrograde and important aspects with planets
The owners of Mercury retrograde in Libra react with a delay to the interlocutor's remarks. The fact is that they carefully choose the right words so as not to offend anyone and provoke an argument. Suspiciousness increases: a person repeats the same thing several times, clarifying and supplementing, fearing to be misunderstood.
It would seem that the conversation is over, and the native calls back or brings up the old topic when they meet, often apologizes and asks again whether he offended inadvertently, but whether his words were perceived correctly, which only annoys people. It is necessary to develop confidence in decision-making, close the topic on time, without reflecting on the interlocutor's reaction, and be more spontaneous.
Favorable aspects with Venus and Chiron strengthen Mercury in Libra, endowing with acting talent, the gift of persuasion and reincarnation, a subtle understanding of art and eloquence. Trine and sextile with Mars and Jupiter remove shyness and fear, help to take a leading position in politics. Opposition or square with Saturn and Neptune aggravate nervous tension, stiffness and indecision.

Sometimes this can lead to indecision and hesitation, because it is difficult for you to decide which side has more good reasons. When your mind is working on comparing and analyzing the big picture, you feel great.
