Fair-minded Libra uses Mercury's influence to find common ground amongst people with whom we might usually find ourselves in conflict.

This is a great time for open and honest discussions as Libra's diplomatic nature should smooth out any conversational conflicts. When Mercury is in Libra, expect a general sense of compromise and harmony. Be cautious, however, of letting the pursuit of a fair and balanced solution get in the way of listening to your own emotional side. You may want to play the diplomat but remember that you're allowed to have deep feelings as well.
