Diplomatic and charming, Libra rarely has any trouble finding friends to share their social time with. You make an excellent friend or companion, taking a genuine interest in others and offering a sympathetic shoulder to cry on when necessary.
Making decisions can almost be death of Libra at times though, as their innate need to weigh and balance all pros and cons of a argument can be so frustrating and lengthy.
Mercury in Scorpio
Mercury in Scorpio is intense and secretive. This placement tends to make people skeptical and curious to get to bottom of things, to find out real truth of matter.
Intuitive and often able to discern weakness of others, you can be rather a scary person to come across let alone anger. You innate curiosity and ability to "read" other people makes you a natural investigator or detective. You are often entrusted with other peoples secrets, as they instinctively know that you can keep information to yourself.
Your manner can at times be rather abrupt, you have no time for fools. If you chose, your words can be used as weapons against others. If you feel it is not diplomatic to state what you truly feel you will remain silent, rather than compromise your integrity. However, often your silence is as frightening to others as if you had said what you thought.
Mercury in Sagittarius
Mercury in Sagittarius is out-going and lively. You are a natural story-teller and are not above "improving" truth if it increases dramatic effect. You have wide and varied interests and are likely to be fascinated with foreign cultures as well as philosophy and religion.
There can at times be a tendency to form opinions before all facts are in and you are prone to saying exactly what is on your mind at time, and damn consequences. This is rarely if ever done in malice though, as Sagittarius' aim is to get at truth - to explore and discover all that there is.
You enjoy study for sake of knowledge it brings you and only real difficulty you are likely to find here is that there is so much for you to learn and discover. You may feel you are spoiled for choice and find it hard to settle on one or two subjects at a time.
Mercury in Capricorn
Mercury in Capricorn is reserved and rather cautious. You weigh your words before saying anything, aware of impact that they can make. You are not overly friendly with others not already within in your social circle.
You have an excellent memory and are extremely diligent when applying yourself to a task. Planning and organization are your forte and anything you undertake, you do well and meticulously. You can at times be quite resistant to change as you have an inbreed love of tradition and order. You probably feel that often change is effected simply for sake of change.
Although you may not be as quick as others to pick up new skills, once attained, you hone them well. This placement can sometimes indicate someone who feels need to vindicate themselves in eyes of others. There may be a tendency to feel that others do not fully appreciate your mental capabilities.
Mercury in Aquarius
Mercury in Aquarius is avant-garde and insightful. New ideas excite you and you are likely to get hunches and intuitive flashes at times. Innovative and daring you are likely to be considered eccentric and "out there".
Although you are witty and outgoing, you can at times come across as being a little impersonal. You have high ideals and are not a social snob, accepting people for what they are, not their status or title. You are a good judge of character and are adept at seeing through to core of a person.
Progressive and at times revolutionary, you can be rather unsettling for more conservative types to be around. You have a natural talent for writing and speech that you should exploit.
Mercury in Pisces
Mercury in Pisces is intuitive and often artistic. You have a good imagination, only problem being that at times you may prefer to dabble in your daydreams than deal with day to day life.
This sign is often psychic in some ways and you tend to do best when you follow your hunches. Beauty and art are sure to move you profoundly in some way and if you have no flair yourself, you are likely to be a great admirer of others' talent.
Easily hurt, you can become moody and reclusive when you feel that someone has done you wrong. You are also trusting and a little naive at times, preferring to see good in others even at your own expense at times. You need to watch that you are not taken in by every sob story you hear or by opportunistic con artist.
