The Scales of Justice Symbolize Libra


Like to Do Things in Partnerships

So you have a new friend with Mercury in Libra, Miranda, who you met while at a clothing sale at an upscale store? They are friendly people who love to be out and about, talking and being with others. People with this Mercury position love to communicate with friends, and love to do things in partnerships. Happy relationships are very important to them. They are curious about other people’s thinking patterns, and often gravitate towards careers in psychology, astrology (because it’s really all about figuring out what makes a person tick, the same for the Tarot), public relations, sociology, and of course, the law. They make good arbitrators and counselors, and want to work with the public. Mercury in Libra people will not work in a dingy cubicle in a dreary office. They also would make good buyers for a store, as they have good fashion flair. The symbol for Libra is the scale of justice, so law and fairness really matters to Miranda.

Love of Beautiful Things

Mercury in Libra persons like to surround themselves with people, as they are the social butterflies of the Zodiac. Libra is ruled by Venus, like Taurus, but Libra people need more mental stimulation. They both like to own beautiful things, but Taurus likes natural things more, Libra likes modern, classy and trendy things. They get bored easily. Mercury in Libra people are so easy to communicate with, because they really care what others think. They are very honest and have a strong sense of justice. They prefer to have harmony, so may not express an opinion which is different than others in a social setting, afraid it will make them seem unpopular. It may appear they lack firmness, but Libra is a leadership sign, they just want to be sure their decision meets their criteria. Mercury in Libra people look at any issue from every side, and this makes it seem like they have trouble making decisions. This is something they have in common with Mercury in Gemini people, but if one takes too long to decide on something, an opportunity to act could be lost. However, decisions made are normally just and well considered, even if it takes ages to get there.

Mercury in Libra people seek out associations with people who possess refined minds, good manners, and honest reputations. They are great believers in the saying, “You get judged by the company you keep.” Uncouth manners, unfair motivations or just general sloppiness are distasteful to a Mercury in Libra person. They really are sensitive to odors and personal appearances of others, and inappropriate dress and course speech are a no no for Miranda. She treats her friends gracefully, and with consideration, and expects the same in return. Mercury in Libra people make the mistake of expecting others to have the same degree of mental discipline they require of themselves.

Loves Social Life

A Neighborhood a Mercury In Libra Person Would Like

So as Miranda starts to go about buying her first house, we have a few clues about what she likes, because we know quite a bit about the way she thinks. Since she loves to surround herself with people who like to have fun, she will want to live in the city, to be close to clubs, restaurants, plays, and good shopping. What better city for a social butterfly than New York City? Miranda can be right in the center of a huge city which offers anything you could possibly want to do. The problem is that you get very few square feet for an exorbitant amount of money in NYC. However, there are many lovely townhome communities in Jersey City, NJ. It lies across from Lower Manhattan, between the Hudson River and Upper NY Bay, and the Hackensack River and Newark Bay. Jersey City is a port of entry for New York, with eleven miles of waterfront and many rail connections, making it very easy to take the ferry, subway or train to get into the city easily. It is an important distribution and manufacturing center for the port of New York and New Jersey, and this played a serious role in the redevelopment of Jersey City, which has become popular again. OK, enough for the geography lesson!

Close to the Night Life

Plus most of these townhouse associations build them to take advantage of the glorious views of New York from across the river, quite a sight of colored lights and interesting buildings, as long as Miranda has a balcony. That will not be hard to arrange in that area, as developers realized that potential from the beginning. So a modern, gated, townhome with a balcony for views, safety, and easy access to NYC, will be a big draw for Miranda. She’s not cheap, but she likes class, and by living across from Manhattan, she can get a lot more for her money.

Miranda has a sharp mind, loving all kinds of mental pursuits, and although many good libraries are available in NYC, she would enjoy having a nice reading room in her home, several nice shelves for books and a few comfortable chairs. Mercury in Libra people love music, and so Broadway and Off Broadway are close, and usually there are many concerts in Central Park or Madison Square Garden. Since she is very refined, the concerts are not all rock concerts, the concert series offers classical and many other kinds of music. And once she learns her way around, there are ways to get less expensive theater tickets. Since Miranda loves to learn, all kinds of museums are in NYC too, the Museum of Natural History, the Modern Museum of Art, and the Rose planetarium has not only shows about planets, but lazerium shows which play music from different artists while giving a light show on the ceiling.

New York One of the World's Greatest Cities


Modern Tastes, No Retro Chic

She has modern tastes, and wants to add a few personal touches, maybe some of her own paintings or accessories, but will not stand for any clutter. Right now she is not seeing anyone, so she is just looking for herself, but still would like two bedrooms for overnight guests and out of town friends. She does have a “girly” side, so that will come about with accessories. But sleek and modern is the way to go here, Miranda is not the Retro Chic type. She will not spend her time repurposing old furniture, the thought horrifies her. Now, furniture shopping she can get into. She wants her home to be comfortable, but does want to show off a little with friends.

NYC also has a lot of rooftop gardens for residents of the association to relax and socialize, so that is a feature Miranda will love. A friendly and sociable person like herself finds it easy to make new friends. Before she knows it, she will be the leader of her newly found friends, usually the one who makes the plans for everyone (though it won’t be fast)! Miranda needs a lot of room for entertaining, and the open floor concept can work well for her, especially if the townhome has a breakfast bar, it can turn into a party bar by night!

A Huge Beauty/Skin Regimen

Mercury in Libra people want to live well, and to look well, so she will spend a lot on hair, mani- pedis, hair coloring and cuts and such. Face the fact that this is who she is. Miranda would not leave a burning building without putting on makeup. She has tons of clothes and shoes and needs lots of closet space. But do not forget Libra is a sign of leadership, and career is heavily on her mind. Jobs pay well in New York City, and she can get to many of them with less hassle if she buys the town home in Jersey City. She also wants to get married in the future, the time is just not right now. Many Mercury in Libra people can’t wait to get married, but do not really want to have children. They fall in love often, as they are incurable romantics, and really want to enjoy life as half of a couple. But the idea of taking care of children who need so much attention is not really her thing. So Miranda will try to choose a man who is not enthused about raising a family either. Or she may have several long term relationships in her life. Miranda can even sublet the townhome for a few weeks if she wants to go on vacations, which she will. After all, somebody has to wear the 15 bathing suits with matching cover ups over in the “summer” area of the closet!

      Hi Carol,

      I hope you are doing well. It's hard to be completely accurate when just discussing the meaning of one planet in a sign. But I like getting people to understand that Astrology is so much more than JUST what sign your Sun is in! I'd be honored to write something for your blog when it's ready, let me know. Take care.
