Libra (September 23 - October 23) is the seventh astrological sign of
the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Libra. Okay, I am a
tad biased, since I was born under this sign, (October 20th) but, being
the scales that I am, I'll try to give you a fair and balanced description.
Libra is considered a masculine, positive sign. It is also considered
an air sign, indicating compromise and is one of four cardinal signs,
implying action. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus. Also known as
The Scales or Balance, Libra is the only symbol of the zodiac
represented by an inanimate object, rather than an animal or human.
The scales have a deeply symbolic meaning for Librans, since the
need for balance and harmony in our lives is paramount. We have a
strong sense of justice and principles, are sensitive to disharmony,
avoiding confrontation whenever possible. WT often describes me as
an iron fist in a velvet glove. I'll admit, I can be a tough cookie, but in
a harmonious, charming way, of course.
We tend to be gifted conversationalists, easy going, flirtatious,
intelligent and sometimes gullible. Since we can see both sides of a
problem, we can often be indecisive. Libra is a sign of partnership, so
we find it more difficult to cope with loneliness than any other sign of
Librans need art, beauty, and symbolism in our surroundings.
We are pure romantics at heart and are drawn to attractive things,
lovely people, and have a strongly developed aesthetic sense.
Librans are very much interested in culture and the civilized side of
Laziness and relaxation are often associated with this sign, but this is
not entirely fair. While Librans may not enjoy heavy, sweaty, dirty
jobs, (this is so true) we certainly don't lack physical energy,
especially if the work has a creative element. We may seem relaxed
because we often make time to listen and give others a sympathetic
Gemstones associated with this sign are sapphire and jade. Our
colors are shades of blue from pale to ultramarine, pink and pale
green. Our body part is the kidneys, which, amazingly enough,
resemble the scales. Flowers are large roses, hydrangea and blue
flowers in general. Countries associated with Librans are Austria,
Burma, Japan, Argentina, Egypt, Canada and Tibet.
So, there you have it. A very Happy Birthday to all my fellow
