Happy Birthday Libra!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? You of course, Libra! And no, I’m not implying that you’re vain…it’s more that you have a higher, more refined aesthetic than most mere mortals. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and pleasure, you are seeking the most beauteous expression of life possible. And that begins with you!
In astrology, Venus, the Goddess of love, rules the realm of relationships, and you, Libra, are the most relational sign of the zodiac. You’re super romantic and thrive in relationships! Indeed, this lifetime is a time of exploring the cosmic dance of self and other, a give and take, the knowing of when to give and when to receive, and ultimately finding the balance between. You have the gifts of compromise and diplomacy, so this is a dance you’re cosmically built for. For you, relationships are truly a mirror to your soul!
Fun Libra Fact—Libra is the one of the few signs of the zodiac that can happily partner with it’s own sign!
You are a lover of harmony and balance, hence your symbol—the scales. You have the ability to see both sides of most equations and love being arbitrator and advocate of different viewpoints. In fact, what get’s your “goat” is when life isn’t fair! (Libra is the sign of truth, fairness and justice.) Yet, this very perspective can garner trouble, because as you weigh and balance, back and forth, you can get lost in the equation! If fact, Libra’s Achilles’ Heal is indecision!
Can’t we just all get along? You oh-so-harmonious-one, dislike discord of any kind, and will often do whatever it takes to keep the peace. As a result, you can be people pleaser. Anything to avoid confrontation! You’re learning to let go of the expectations of others, and become more confortable is speaking and owning your truth!
At the end of the day, you’re happiest in a committed partnership, with plenty of intellectual and creative stimulation, and a lifestyle that reflects your sense of beauty, balance and fairness.
Astro Alert Libra! Currently, as you read this, there’s a Mercury Retrograde occurring in your sign through Oct 9th. So, this MR may affect you more than most. This is a time to regroup, reflect and give yourself time redefine boundaries and explore what’s truly important to you in relationships!
