Libra! About Your Sign...
the only inanimate sign of the zodiac, all the others representing either humans
or animals. Many modern astrologers regard it as the most desirable of zodiacal
types because it represents the zenith of the year, the high point of the seasons,
when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped. There is a mellowness
and sense of relaxation in the air as mankind enjoys the last of the summer sun
and the fruits of his toil. Librans too are among the most civilized of the twelve
zodiacal characters and are often good looking. They have elegance, charm and good
taste, are naturally kind, very gentle, and lovers of beauty, harmony (both in music
and social living) and the pleasures that these bring.
good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters
which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate
argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a
conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience
of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced,
diplomatic and even tempered.
are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic
extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them
with their own innate optimism - they are the kind of people of whom it is said,
"They always make you feel better for having been with them." They are very social
human beings. They loathe cruelty, viciousness and vulgarity and detest conflict
between people, so they do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone
around them, and their ideal for their own circle and for society as a whole is
of mind is artistic rather than intellectual, though they are usually too moderate
and well balanced to be avant garde in any artistic endeavor. They have good
perception and observation and their critical ability, with which they are able
to view their own efforts as well as those of others, gives their work integrity.
personal relationships they show understanding of the other person's point of view,
trying to resolve any differences by compromise, and are often willing to allow
claims against themselves to be settled to their own disadvantage rather than spoil
a relationship. They like the opposite sex to the extent of promiscuity sometimes,
and may indulge in romanticism bordering on sentimentality. Their marriages, however,
stand a good chance of success because they are frequently the union of "true minds".
The Libran's continuing kindness toward his or her partner mollifies any hurt the
latter may feel if the two have had a tiff. Nor can the Libran's spouse often complain
that he or she is not understood, for the Libran is usually the most empathetic
of all the zodiacal types and the most ready to tolerate the beloved's failings.
Libran character may show frivolity, flirtatiousness and shallowness. It can be
changeable and indecisive, impatient of routine, colorlessly conventional and timid,
easygoing to the point of inertia, seldom angry when circumstances demand a show
of annoyance at least; and yet Librans can shock everyone around them with sudden
storms of rage. Their love of pleasure may lead them into extravagance; Libran men
can degenerate into reckless gamblers, and Libran women extravagant, jealous and
careless about money sometimes squander their wealth and talents in their overenthusiasm
for causes which they espouse. Both sexes can become great gossipers. A characteristic
of the type is an insatiable curiosity that tempts them to enquire into every social
scandal in their circle.
work the description "lazy Libra" which is sometimes given is actually more alliterative
than true. Librans can be surprisingly energetic, though it is true that they dislike
coarse, dirty work. Although some are modestly content, others are extremely ambitious.
With their dislike of extremes they make good diplomats but perhaps poor party politicians,
for they are moderate in their opinions and able to see other points of view. They
can succeed as administrators, lawyers (they have a strong sense of justice, which
cynics might say could handicap them in a legal career), antique dealers, civil
servants and bankers, for they are trustworthy in handling other people's money.
Some Librans are gifted in fashion designing or in devising new cosmetics; others
may find success as artists, composers, critics, writers, interior decorators, welfare
workers or valuers, and they have an ability in the management of all sorts of public
entertainment. Some work philanthropically for humanity with great self-disciple
and significant results. Libran financiers sometimes make good speculators, for
they have the optimism and ability to recover from financial crashes.
