A deeper look at Libra

Your Sun Sign describes the center of your personality, what motivates and drives you, and who you are learning to become

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and is represented by the scales. Those born with the Sun in Libra are learning to take action around principles of fairness, justice, and equality, and have an urge to create harmony in one-to-one relationships. Libra is a cardinal sign, which means Libras are accordingly great at launching new initiatives.

A Libra is the epitome of charm. They have a friendly, sociable presence, and enjoy meaningful yet cordial interactions. Libras have impeccable manners and an eye for symmetry. They’re relationship-oriented individuals who are drawn to interact up-close and personal with others.

While Libra’s opposite sign, Aries, represents “me,” Libra symbolizes “we.” Relationships are paramount for Libras, who find balance in companionship. They have an inherent craving for a partner since they hate being single and moving alone. Moreover, the Scales will always desire peace and harmony. They would like to imbibe this in their romantic relationships as well.

Where Libra needs to be careful is indecisiveness. Because of their ability to look at things from different perspectives, in weighing all possible outcomes, Librans can become perplexed and ultimately overwhelmed. By trying to be “fair to everybody”, they can end up becoming ineffective at an everyday level. This can manifest as the inability to choose at all. Instead of constantly seeking outside perspectives, Libras would do well to develop and trust their own intuition.

Libras often take a long time to decide whether they should spend their money on a particular item. In the end, it usually is a decision well made as they genuinely appreciate money. On the whole, they seem to act best in financial matters when they do it in close collaboration with a chosen partner.

You are often gifted with a clear head for analysis, and a good deal of social charm that can make you both popular and well-respected. By using these gifts to make decisions, you experience the inner satisfaction of having held firm to whatever principle is at stake, at the same time as making a social contribution that is beneficial to all concerned.

When the Sun is found in Libra, individuality must be experienced through the mirror of  “The Other”. Thus partnerships, relationships and decision-making processes tend to be the circumstances in which many life-lessons are learned.

At its heart, the Libran journey involves mastery of relationship. To accomplish this, you must first recognize who you are and what you stand for. Once this is achieved, you have the ability to create win-win situations based on mutual harmony and gain.
