Mercury in Libra

Mercury in Libra

Comprehension Style: weighing all the options

Favorite Conversations: intellectual debates, harmonious discussions, one-on-one brainstorming

Having Mercury in Libra gives you a thinking style that is very balanced and measured. Ideas, solutions, and judgments don?t come to you in an impulsive, rapid-fire manner. Instead, you?ll like to weigh out every pro and con that you can before making a final statement, if you ever do. Indecisiveness can be a cardinal sin for many people with this position, as you might be afraid of really owning your thoughts or taking the risk of going out on a limb mentally. Libra Mercury individuals usually benefit from having someone else that they can use as an intellectual sound-board. Having your ideas and thoughts validated, reflected, or assessed by another person often helps you feel more confident in fully communicating them.

This placement makes you extremely aware of just how your communications are going to be received. Some people with their Mercury in Libra might become the proverbial sugar-coaters because of this, extra-careful and cautious about potentially offending. Even if you?re more outspoken and to-the-point, there?s still an inherent sense of politeness and consideration for other people that you adhere to. You don?t want to be rude and will be repelled by those who express themselves in this way. Libra Mercury can charm the pants off people with their words. You truly love establishing a mental connection with other people and can become quite dependent on this kind of intellectual rapport. You have a sense of humor that is indicative of your interpersonal awareness, as you usually know just what?s going to be funny to the particular crowd that you?re trying to win over.
