Libra is the 7th Zodiac sign and the 2nd air sign after Gemini; symbolizing social evolution and the need to take their place in the world as a mature adult. This sign understands the roles and parts everyone plays on the universal stage. Libra is represented by the scales and their energy highlights the need for balance in life. This air sign is representative of the age period of 42-49, incarnating to refine social roles by considering how one relates to others. Pivotal stages in the evolution of their consciousness will include: weighing alternatives, formulating educated opinions, beauty, social understanding and harmony. However, constant weighing options can lead to indecision and uncertainty. Libras desire harmony and beauty in the world around them and these Venusian traits are usually charming to others. Libra can be seen as the evolutionary stage between Virgo and Scorpio, transmuting Virgo’s analytical, practical and service-oriented energies and cultivating Scorpios fixed, powerful and controlling ones.
Libra is the second sign after Taurus to be ruled by Venus, characterised by love, beauty and harmony. Working best in a balanced partnership, they focus on striking an excellent equilibrium and use it as a stepping-stone to stimulate creativity and evolve each person’s ideas. It is important for them to have positive people around them, and choose a great partner in life, as they are aware of the way others see them, and it is easy for them to absorb negative viewpoints of others. Although Venus brings a love for harmony, Librans are well educated in debate and they can often stir up argument through controversial attitudes and behavior. As it is important to be socially accepted, the Libra can also find balance in scenarios by creating a “false” harmony that exists on the surface, rather than addressing the imbalance. As they are always charming and excellent at saying the right thing at the right time, it can be easy for them to be too passive in the face of a conflict. To guard against creating relationships and situations that may not really serve their higher truth, it is important for the Libra to feel strong in their sense of self, and cultivate independence.
One way in which Libra’s can find themselves getting stuck, is through their understanding of both sides of a problem. They can choose to examine every aspect of an idea or project and procrastinate because of it.
Libra’s are known for fighting for what is fair and just. Although they are diplomatic, they loathe injustice, cruelty and unpleasantness. So it is interesting how they can become unpleasant and cruel themselves when feeling confronted with perceived injustices. Sometimes it is better for them to remain positive and let it go, however, it is a Libra’s gift to create mutually beneficial situations in which both parties benefit. A word of advice to Libra is to try and not get caught up in a decision-making processes and to remember that they are at their best when feeling light and graceful.
