Sign of the Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- Libra is the newest of all the signs and before Roman times, didn’t exist as a separate Constellation. It was the Romans and their love of balance and harmony, that couldn’t abide a solar system of 11, unequal signs. To bring things together and have everything balanced, they created Libra, out of Scorpio.
- Librans sprout from a series of contradictions: self versus non-self, mental versus emotional, pleasure versus pathos, helpfulness versus helplessness, generosity versus greed, kindness versus coldness, control versus chaos. Underneath the smiling face and stellar charm lies a character with many ambivalences
- Best qualities: Friendliness, Fairness, Gracefulness; Worst Qualities: Indecisiveness, Laziness; Best Match: Sagittarius; Worst Match: Virgo; Best Day: Friday; Worst Day: Wednesday; Favorite Weakness: Romance
- The Libra sign of the scales is the only non-human/non-animal sign in the zodiac.
Every year for the last 15 years or so I go out to dinner with my friends Meg and Jo Ann for our annual "Libra Dinner." We try to go somewhere where we can draw attention to ourselves, and inevitably end up celebrating with a ton of other self-identified Libras in the restaurant. I'm not sure any other sign makes such a big deal of it, or feels so self-important!
So, during this month of the Libra, be aware that the person sitting next to you may be secretly sitting there...feeling superior...wondering if you might be a Libra, too.
