(September 23 - October 22/23)
Archetypes and Roles
The Lover, the Diplomat, the Partner, the Socializer, the Host or Hostess, the Balancer, the Negotiator.
Your focus is on human contact and companionship. As your emblem the Scales hints, you can tip first one way, then another in an effort to be fair. Don't let an inability to commit become a liability, and the years ahead will be successful ones.
"I Balance" is your birth sign's signature. Fairness is always a value you insist upon. The Scale as a spiritual emblem dates back to Egyptian times when Thoth would weigh souls for judgement. Oriental philosophies have a special link to your birth sign. Experiment with Feng Shui to bring a more spiritual atmosphere to your home or office.
Librans are easy to like, for you have a captivating charm, possess elegant taste, and are usually beautiful to look at.
Ruled by Venus, goddess of love and beauty, you admire loveliness in all forms, in music, art decoration - and people. You enjoy the comforts of life.
You expect admiration - thrive on it.
Libra is the sign of partnerships, you're at your best in a relationship.
You strive for balance and harmony and are happiest when your environment is ordered and serene. You will go out of your way to avoid friction. To avoid an unpleasant scene, you will even stifle your own true feelings. Far too often, you are not sure what your own feelings are. Because you try to be all things to all people, there is a general impression that you are indecisive. Underneath your calm surface, you have to struggle to make decisions.
Although you have superb instincts, you don't trust them enough. You are likely to be an underachiever because of your easygoing attitude. For the most part, you don't want anything badly enough to fight for it. The exception is when you're denied a privilege to which you feel entitled. That ruffles your feathers. You resent being treated unfairly and become upset at unfairness in the world at large.
You get along harmoniously with people who are even-tempered, particularly those who laugh in the face of difficulties. You are appreciative of talent in any field.
Money has a way of slipping through your fingers because it isn't money you love, it is the things money can buy. People born under this sign dislike hard work - unless someone else is doing it. A love of beauty leads natives of this sign to careers in art, decorating, the theater, and composing.
You are an idealist and a romantic. Affectionate, warmhearted, sentimental, naturally optimistic, you do everything in your power to please.
