Mercury is traditionally said dignified in Virgo & Gemini. But Mercury in Libra would definitely argue about that.
Mercury is very at ease in this Air sign. If you know someone with this placement, chances are their nickname is The Lawyer. They will defend one opinion & its opposite. They’re the defense attorney, the prosecutor and the judge; all at the same time. They’re passionate about intellectual matters & they can be absolutely brilliant. Regardless of their level of education or their intelligence, they will always be skilled at arguing just about anything. They usually do very well in higher studies because of their ability to write and speak with a nice flow.
Mercury in Libra is strong & weak for the same reason: They see both sides of the same coin. They have strong analytic skills; they can see all the angles and all the points of view. But they can lose themselves in their thoughts because, well, how can you choose a side and take a stand when left AND right make so much sense?
They are not only good at arguing, they LOVE it. Being their friends or partners can be quite exhausting if you don’t share the same aspect. You think they’re looking for a fight, they’re just having the time of their life debating whether or not waterbed mattresses are the best for your back. You think they’re ruining the atmosphere by having an argument, they don’t quite get why you’re not enjoying this energetic conversation. Arguing is a sport for a Libra, and you’ll be disappointed to hear, they’ll probably win.
Unless there are aspects indicating otherwise, Mercury in Libra will use indirect communication. They will drop subtle hints, wrap their message in candy paper and you’ll be absolutely clueless about what just happened. They have the ability to make people do what they want, without anyone realizing Mercury in Libra just induced their response.
If you need an advice on a tricky situation, go to someone with this placement. Because they can see all the sides of a situation, they’re great at giving a fair and complete analysis. At work, they are great mediators & leaders. Forget the manager who yells at you to get something accomplished, Libra will make you do what they want and you’ll think it was your idea in the first place.
Because of their charming and soft manners, because of their indecisiveness, Libra is often thought as weak. But don’t be fooled, Libra is an iron fist in a velvet glove. When they do decide something, nothing can stop them. And when Aries destroys everything on its way and raises resistance from the people around, Libra is subtle and navigates without any issue, because who can say no to charming soft Libra?
They're quite the opposite of Scorpio in that matter: Scorpio gets straight to the point while cutting throats on its way, Libra will gently cut your throat while smiling to your face and you’ll thank them for it.
