Able to see both sides of an argument, Libra often struggles to make a decision. With Mars conjunct Mercury in Libra, I struggle between being forthright, which can come across as bombastic…or just saying nice, superficial things.
The nice, superficial things are ultimately controlling. It’s hard to be mean to me when I am so freakin’ nice to you, even if it’s fake as a three dollar bill!
On the other hand (says Libra), I am often seen as challenging, aggressive, provocative, argumentative. This can also be seen as controlling since some people are terrified.
I don’t know that this will ever be resolved. Balance right? Except Libra doesn’t balance all that well, for long.
Libra can definitely get sick of being nice to you, especially with Mars involved. But it can also get sick from strife and play nice as a tactic.
Clearly, I remain on the fence on this issue.
You? Do you prefer “bombastic” or veneer?
