Are you fond of romantic, candlelit dinners in posh, tastefully decorated restaurants . . . of walking the shores of a quiet beach on warm summer nights, the two of you wrapped in the glow of a full moon . . . or of sending and receiving thoughtful cards and beautiful flowers on special occasions? Well, if your sun is not in Libra, I would feel confident betting that you have the sign nicely positioned somewhere in your birth chart.
In addition to being the most romantic, Libra is also acknowledged for being the most diplomatic sign in the zodiac, and after being reared by one (my mother, Oct 18th) and rearing another (my son, Oct 20th) I have an abundance of personal evidence that this is true.
Whether as a couple or in a group, their ability to see and intelligently assess both sides of an issue, makes them the likeliest candidate for being the glue that holds it all together.
Easy-going, idealistic Libras love being in relationship, be it with one or one hundred and, because of their generosity, fairness and charming, urbane sensibilities, they are admired and respected by their partners, peers and teammates in any game they find themselves playing. And, whatever the game happens to be, for Heaven’s sake (and theirs), let it be fun, exciting and full of adventure. Don’t let that low-key, calm and peaceful demeanor fool you; they can’t wait for the next opportunity to have a good time.
As intelligent and creative as the Libra native is, she appears lazy when it comes to the execution
of the good ideas she comes up with. “I came up with it, now let someone else decide what to do with it; let someone else do the work.”
Could they be afraid that a wrong decision might lead to failure . . . a loss of the love, respect and approval they so desperately need and seek?
I’m not so sure the problem is sloth. I think we might be looking at an unwillingness to fight for what is desired for fear that too many waves may rock the boat and, for the Libra born, balance, order and peace are mandatory. Unwilling to disturb the peace they crave, they are likely to hide their true feelings and, as a result of an insecure nature, simply shut down, giving the appearance of being vain, self-indulgent, superficial and unreliable.
Okay Libra, it’s time for you to trust that intuition you are so famous for. Stop being afraid of ending up on the wrong side of the bet. Maintain your balance as you dare to climb out on that limb. The sweetest fruit is just sitting there waiting for you to garner the courage to reach out and pluck it, and no one will be more likely to spread it around.
May this be the year when it all comes together for you. Your win is inevitably a win for us all.
Everybody seems to like Libra Ascendant natives. They just come across as nice, pleasant, and fair. Look a little closer at their lives, and these nice people may have had quite a few problems in their relationships. Some of them have had a string of relationships, and it can be hard to imagine why! These natives attract others to them effortlessly. Besides, they simply don't know what to do with themselves without a significant other.
Libra rising people generally appear to be smoothing everything over. They have charming smiles, a gentle approach with others, and an easygoing image. Even if they were not endowed with good looks, they are attractive. Most pay a lot of attention to their personal appearance -- the colors they wear, their hair, the way they walk.
Those with a Libra ascendant can be enormously persuasive, although they will almost always use a "soft sell" approach when they want to win others over, which is all of the time! A tendency to pass the buck and keep up that "nice guy/gal" image are their worst qualities. However, they can make excellent mediators and will generally be the first to accommodate you.
Libra rising natives are usually attracted to competent, active partners. Their relationships are
often characterized by bickering or competitiveness until they learn to drop their sweet image once in a while and to stop blaming their partners for everything that goes wrong.
With a definite appreciation for the arts, Libra rising people may be artistically or musically
skilled. Interior design and architecture are areas in which they may take particular interest.
They are just as good at taking photographs as they are at posing for them.
MOON IN LIBRA
Having Libra in the lunar position of a chart can make people have a strong need for partnership. Without someone to share their lives with, they feel utterly incomplete. This is why many people with this position get involved in marriages or living-together arrangements quite young. These are the people who seem to always need to have someone tag along with them wherever they go -- even if it is to the corner store. They find strength and reinforcement in and through others.
Because the drive for harmony, peace, and sharing is so powerful, Lunar Librans are apt to do a lot of conceding. They are sympathetic and concerned for others, enjoy socializing, and revel in a good debate. Mental rapport with others is especially important to them.
Both men and women with this position are often quite charming. They can be very attractive to be around, and are often given to flirtatiousness. Rarely directly aggressive, these natives win your heart with their gentle and refined ways.
People with Moon in Libra simply cannot help but see flaws in their environment and their relationships. In fact, anything out of whack will bother them until it is fixed. Although diplomatic with acquaintances, when these natives argue with their long-standing partners, they rarely let up until they win. And, winning an argument is a Libran specialty -- in fact, they may not even believe what they are saying, but will adopt all kinds of ideas just to get the last word.
Living with Lunar Librans can sometimes feel like you are on trial, and Libra is the expert lawyer. Sometimes, though, Libra is defending you and supporting your point of view.
