Libra is the 7th Sign of the Zodiac. It is the middle sign, hence the scales. The scales also signify the fact that Libra is the sign of balance. However, this does not mean they are completely balanced. It means Libra is conscious of wanting to bring about balance. The question is though, from what standpoint is Libra trying to establish a balance? This might be difficult to discover from them.
Libra likes peace and harmony. They will not set out to create open disruption. But neither are they prepared to endure a situation, which is not harmonious to themselves.
Libra does not like to make a decision in a hurry. This does not mean they do not know what they want. They generally do. However, they need to discover the position of other people they are dealing with first. When Libra asks of another person what they want to do, it is their way of trying to discover where that person stands. Libran’s are the tacticians of the Zodiac.
Libra is a natural when it comes to relating or attracting attention from others. They have a pleasant, charming manner and are generally good looking as well. Libra likes beauty and will often be involved in situations, which make people or things look better.
Libra is the sign of partnership. Without a partner, Libra will generally feel incomplete. This does not mean Libra cannot cope independently. They can and in fact circumstances generally develop in life so they have to spend a period of time alone. During this period Libra will get to wonder whether they could adjust to a partnership again.
Because Libra is the sign of balance, it goes without saying, that “as one sows, they shall reap”. Libra comes to understand this perfectly well.
Libra rules the kidneys, adrenals, the lumbar region of the spine. Any personal planets or the ascendant in Libra can bring sensitivity, even health problems to these areas of the body.
If the Sun is in Libra: Life will present situations in which a balance needs to be established. This is because Libra is the middle sign of the Zodiac. Before proceeding with any situation both the present position and the changing position need to be weighed up. Also the reaction of people involved. When Libra is indecisive it means there is something about the matter that doesn’t suit them or they sense other people may not behave, as they would prefer. So then Libra has to decide how they will cope. If they think they can, a definite decision ensues.
If the Moon is in Libra: The focus goes first to the position of the other person or people and what they might be expecting from the situation. This is compared to what Libra Moon wants and then the strategic plan of action begins to take shape. This is presented in such a pleasant way that the other party has no idea of the underlying motivations. It is the partnership desire that wants to be seen to please so that people don’t go running away. The expression of charm, softness and good manners comes naturally as well as the skill to present things beautifully.
If Mercury is in Libra: can communicate easily with others and put them at ease if they so wish. Prefer to concentrate on things that are pleasant. Will procrastinate, which is their way of diplomatically avoiding in issue.
If Venus is in Libra: will need to balance finances. Attitude with money may swing between carefree and practical. Will prefer to be in a relationship and will have a liking for beautiful and pleasurable things in life. Won’t like disruption and will want to keep things peaceful. Will be attracted to people with Libran traits.
If Mars is in Libra: the intention is to win but this is not made obvious. Have an ability to weigh up all sorts of possible alternatives towards eventually accomplishing their main aim. Can have a quick temper if caught off guard.
If the Ascendant is in Libra: Peaceful and tranquil surroundings with an air of beauty are your desire. You will set out to present yourself in this manner as well. Things out of balance bother you, which can lead to periods of indecision. To eventually find harmony, action needs to be taken to correct it.
