The Basics

In Astrology, Mercury represents communication, intellect, and mental processes. It influences how we think, express ourselves, and gather knowledge, playing a crucial role in shaping our communication skills and mental abilities.

If you have Mercury in Libra, your communication style is diplomatic, harmonious, and balanced. You have a natural ability to see multiple perspectives and strive for fairness and equality in your interactions.

You excel in social settings and have a charming and cooperative demeanor. You enjoy engaging in intellectual discussions and value the opinions and ideas of others.

Your refined taste and appreciation for art and beauty are reflected in your communication style, which tends to be elegant and well-spoken. You have a talent for finding common ground and facilitating harmonious relationships.

Mercury in Libra often points to careers in law, diplomacy, counseling, or any field that requires effective communication and negotiation skills. Your ability to see both sides of an issue and find mutually beneficial solutions is highly valued.

In relationships, you prioritize harmony and cooperation. You seek partners who share your values of fairness and equality and appreciate your diplomatic approach to communication.

*Look at your Cosmodyne scores to see whether your Mercury is Harmonious or Discordant.

While everyone has good and bad days, your Cosmodynes reveal where you lean toward on average.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our placements, and hopefully, we evolve into more harmonious beings than our Natal charts suggest.)

Transits to your Mercury, especially from the outer planets, can greatly affect its expression as well.
