Horoscopes - Libra

In this seventh of a 12 part series on horoscopes, we're going to look at the first of what are called the fall signs, Libra the Scales.

People who are born between September 22 and October 23 are Librans. Their element is Air, their quality is Cardinal, their energy is Yang, their ruler is Venus, their color is blue, their gem is Opal, their main anatomical parts are the kidneys, lower back and adrenal glands, their keywords are balance, harmony and justice, their Tarot suit is Swords and their Tarot Major Arcana card is Justice.

Some famous celebrities who are Librans are Nicole Kidman, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Will Smith, Angelina Jolie, John Lennon, Eleanor Roosevelt and Barbara Walters.

There is an old joke about Librans. "How many Librans does it take to screw in a light bulb?" The answer, "Two. One to do it and one NOT to do it".

Harmony and balance. That is what the Libra is all about. No sign wants to even the sides as much as Libra does. They seek balance in everything they do. That means never indulging in anything one way or the other. So you'll rarely find a Libra who either drinks to excess or doesn't touch alcohol at all. Everything in moderation. That's how they live their lives and that's what the strive for in getting others to do the same.

To achieve these ends, they can be very charming when they have to be or very blunt when the charm doesn't work. They try to look at every issue from both sides. Because of this they sometimes have a hard time actually taking a side in an argument. This can drive the partner of a Libra crazy, especially when the partner thinks he is right.

Because of the nature of the Libra, they are very social creatures. They are more than ready, willing an eager to share their beliefs with others. They will form many friendships. At least they will try. As they are quite the diplomat, this isn't something that comes hard to them.

But because of the way they are, they can come off as being insincere because they are too eager to compromise. Their desire to keep the peace makes them seem indecisive at times. Don't try to nail them down to a definite yes or no on anything. You'll have a long wait.

Librans in love demand equality in a relationship. They expect as much love given to them as they give to their partner. For them, love is a definite two way street and they won't accept anything less. Librans get along great with other Librans as well as with Geminis and Aquarians.

When it comes to work, Librans really shine. Many times they turn out to be leaders. They like to show others at work the way to do things and keep balance and harmony at the same time. When involved in a work dispute they often times end up being the negotiator. Because of their great social skills, they can easily charm both sides of the argument into a compromise.

Librans are constantly in motion, constantly enjoying life and forever looking at both sides of everything. After all, somebody has to do it.
