Having Mercury in Libra, I weigh knowledge. I can’t help this, it’s my natural process. Mercury is in the expansive 9th house and I have numerous ways to consider information that comes my way.
For example, the 9th house wants to know (Mercury) if something is true. Should I believe what I’ve been told?
Also related to the 9th house, I consider what the information means. What is the meaning of knowledge in the big picture? If I have been told a lie, I will weigh the meaning of that.
On the Libra side, I consider the social aspect. Is the information that has been shared (Libra) with meto be shared with someone else (Libra)? Should it be broadcast or published /spread to many (9th house)? I have to think (Mercury) about this and try to decide (Libra).
With Mercury in the 9th, information (Mercury) concerning the future (9th) comes to me, one way or the other. Sometimes the news (Mercury) is very upbeat (9th) but not always. Truth (9th) does not promise to be pleasant (Libra). I may still have to share (Libra) it but it sickens me because Libra is a sign that likes peace and beauty.
Right now, transiting Pluto is squaring my natal Mercury. The information I am privy to at this time is stark and the weighing process that I have no choice but to go through is very painful. The 9th house expands everything which in includes pain.
Whatever I decide or whatever I say or don’t say, mental comfort eludes me. Pluto will station in aspect to my natal Mercury until April.
