Libra the Peaceful Liberator
Near the Autumn Equinox, At the start of fall, from September 23rd to October 22nd, the sun enters the balanced sign of Libra. The word Libra is Latin for scales. The constellation of Libra can be seen in the sky as a cluster of dim yellow and blue stars full of heat. Libra can be seen in the sky from April to July and can be located by looking the left of the bright fixed star Arcturus located in the Scorpius constellation as well as near the hand of the Virgo constellation. The scales are the only symbol in the zodiac that is not a human or animal and they represent justice and balance. The Greek star goddess of justice, Astraea, along with her mother Themis, represent the need for justice and fairness to be present on earth before they can bestow the extra goodies like true love and ascension upon humanity. The mythology of Libra rumors of a time when Astraea will return to earth when we are ready to receive her divine feminine love.
“Ooo, Freedom, Ooo, Liberty. O ... leave me alone, to find my own way home, to find my own way home.”
Libras are divine creatures that can be recognized for their shimmering eyes, bright smiles, and their need to relate with others. They will have loud and yet delicate taste with fine jewels, silvery colors, and an elegance that reminds you of a romance novel. More than any other sign, Libra thrives in relationship to others and will always be around people if they can help it. Libras will stand out as strikingly gorgeous, friendly and peaceful when they are in their “zone” but if they sense tension, they will be packing for the hills. Libras don’t like to take sides, much like a judge or a therapist, and because of this they make excellent mediators. Ideally, Libra would love to avoid all confrontation and arguments completely. However, this world doesn’t work like that so they have to choose very wisely who it is that they partner up with in this life so as they can live up to their own perfect standards in peace. “There are things you can replace, And others you cannot. The time has come to weigh those things, Just then the wind came squalling through the dark. But who can the weather command? Just wanna have a little peace to die, And a friend or two I love at hand”
Libras will absolutely dazzle you with feel good compliments, funny sentiments, and a vast array of artistic skills. Libras tend to have finely decorated homes and bodies with clear speaking voices as Libra rules No one will ruin a Libras day for they will simply not join in the pity party. They are here to seek harmony and to breathe peace into the air wherever they go in order to be the beacons of light they are entitled to become. “Let my inspiration flow, In token rhyme suggesting rhythm, That will not forsake me, Till my tale is told and done.”
Libras are associated with balance, harmony, justice, and relationships. Libras are the judges and therapists of the zodiac ready to restore and balance polarities of yin and yang /feminine and masculine. Libras are here to be your best friend, partner, and grow in higher points of destiny together. The Libra will whisk you off your feet with their soothing voice and joyful flirtation. The Libra will read the room, and be able to place themselves in the path of least resistance so as to create a natural balance in the room. You can find the Libras near the libations of which they love to indulge, or on the microphone singing a song or a poem. Libras are equal part creative as they are just, and this makes for a whimsical and fair friend.
Libra is the 2nd air sign in the zodiac, building on the dual and mentally astute Gemini, the Libra is here to help us manage our impulses and make way for higher states of love. Libras are naturally relational and can get lost in the lives of others. In order to best calm their active minds, they love to talk out their ideas and desires with those around them. Libra is the only sign specifically associated with high values in both matters of the heart and matters of aesthetics aka; Libra is associated with beauty that radiates from the heart.
Libra is ruled by Venus. Venus is the 3rd brightest planet (besides the sun and moon), as well as the closest planet to earth. Venus takes 225 days to orbit the sun and retrogrades every 19 months. Venus is also the ruler of Taurus. Venus rules the feminine, receptive natures that often are necessary to add fuel to the fires of desire. Venusians are said to love talk therapy, serenity, and shiny, silvery objects. In the case of Libra, Venus rules over the quality and the type of partnerships one can attain in this life. Venus in the astrological chart will display what and who it is that you can bring to a relationship as well as what you need to be in harmony. Venus brings the divine, creative and inspired energy of a new romance and beauty. Nurturing and expressing gratitude for the positive yet receptive energy she brings to us can help awaken her presence in our lives.
Libra rules the 7th house in Astrology which is associated with marriage, partnership, relating style and the other. It is this house where we can expand our realities by inviting in other people to share in our joy, accomplishments and even therapies. The 7th house shares the experiences built upon the balanced and well functioning energies of the 6th house (Virgo). Whichever sign rules the 7th house will show you the types of lovers and one on one friendships you will attract. The planets in the 7th house will show you what energies you are experiencing and bringing with you into the relationship. The 7th house is the first of the ‘mature’ houses meaning that they deal with advanced transpersonal karma and the sharing of karma. Karma in the case of astrology can mean our past lives or our lessons in learning in this life.
Libras as children can be some of the most well mannered individuals to raise. They are highly artistic and love to surround themselves in pastel colors and dreamy surroundings. Sudden load or brash noises can disrupt the balance in their bodies. Libra children will be dreamers at heart and will remember their Venusian roots. Musical instruments and paint supplies will be in high demand as these children yearn to create and develop a healthy sense of self. The Libra child can suffer from codependency and self sacrifice in their earlier years in order for them to learn to master their boundaries in love. They will need plenty of alone time to cultivate their personal desires and purpose. Libras will love to play with other children and develop friendships that last a lifetime. They are only materialistic and vain if they are rejecting their inherent beauty within. For the most part, the young Libra will be everyones favorite child, and friend; soothing the vibe in every room. “You may be Saturday's child all-grown, Moving with a tinge of grace. You may be a clown in the burying ground Or just another pretty face. You may be the fate of Ophelia, Sleeping and perchance to dream -Honest to the point of recklessness, Self centered to the extreme.”
Libras love to jam it out and create rhythmic recipes for cosmic love. Bob Weir is a Libra born October 16 and was known to bring ‘quirky and whimsical’ sounds to the songs via his guitar. Phil Lesh has his North Node of the moon in Libra which is would have made his soul purpose all about meeting his ideal soulmates in this lifetime and keeping the vibe high. Gerry Garcia has Libra rising (on his ascendant ) which means he would appear Libra and is ruled by Venus. Together this dynamic trio inspired one another to harmonic greatness. Libra placements in the chart indicate points of total convergence of peace and joy. You can tell the Libra influenced members of the Dead crew truly had a common thread of peace at their core woven in to create a cosmic band that inspired all things Libra to its highest expression. “Look through time, it's for sure, It’s the greatest gift to man, Music and Love, you can't explainTry and understand, The greatest thing could ever be.We make love through eternity. Eternity, eternity.”
The Libra life can become a long love poem full of whimsical trials and tribulations in love. Since justice and peace inform the safety of Libra, they will do what is on their power to play fair, and to judge all things equally. If you are trying to play favorites with a Libra, they may be extremely turned off as they see all things as equal and beautiful. If they happen to be insecure, they could become overly materialistic and dependent on others around them for a sense of worth. Since worthiness is important to Libra, they can build this skill by making a choice in how they spend their assets and values. They are very artistic and can find great work as politicians, lawyers, jewelry designers, and musicians. In the eyes of others; the Libra will maintain the vibe of “just out of reach” for they don’t allow to many people to have the key to their secret garden. Libras can contradict themselves by becoming so cool and apathetic that they loose their lustre, or conversely so passionate and drunk on libations, they repel their true love. The key for Libra is balance and self awareness in order to keep them on track with their high desires for a utopian earth. “The storyteller makes no choice, Soon you will not hear his voice. His job is to shed light, And not to master.”
Libra is ruled by the heart chakra, and is here to deepen their connection with others. Libras can get lost in their partners and forget who they are, so they do best with those pure of heart so as to protect themselves from harm. The Libra is best paired with other air signs as well as their heartfelt cousin, the Pisces. Since Venus is exalted in Pisces, a relationship between the Pisces and Libra will assist with their soulful mission to use their gifts to connect with a love greater than themselves. Of course this can happen with any sign and Libra will have dated them all by the time they come around to choosing their forever partner of their dreams. Once in relationship, the Libra will work steadily on building and refining a third energy that benefits the whole. Libras are only the only sign that can get easily swept off their feet by a dazzling charmer and will tend to meet those who feel mutually about them. Their lesson later in life will be to access and harness their inner beauty to allow it to shine so bright their darkness will be forgotten forever. “If I was a bottle I'd spill for love, Sake of mercy I'd kill for love. If I was a liar I'd lie for love. Sake of my baby I'd die for love, Sake of my baby I'd die for love.”
The Libra archetype can be seen as the Justice and the Empress in the tarot as well as the peacemaker, the judge, the poet, the fairy, and the twin flame. Libra can be many things but ‘to thine own self be true’ will be their motto for much of their lives if they want to meet their higher vibration. Their quest is to become secure in themselves before they begin to share their energy. They could easily become the ultimate lover for another so long as they master the light within. They are well aware of the dark and want to close off that portion of their lives in an effort to preserve their personal peace. Libras are here to bring balance in feminine and masculine energies in both themselves and with another and can truly brighten up our worlds with their balancing act!
In the Aquarian age of Justice and light, Libras wont put up a fight unless it results in a higher love. Libras are the soothsayers, liberators and even keeled friends who don’t want to take sides. In a world fueled by polarity and judgement, our Libra friends have their work cut out for them and a mission too great to pass up. Libras love to indulge in passionate expression and if they choose not to focus it on relationships, it may be because they are married to their music or their mind. Whichever they choose it is their duty to harmonize and become one with the life force they co create with the garden of earthly delights. One thing we know for sure, the legacy of Libra will live on forever.
“Eternity, eternity, Baby, I love you, you love me. Let’s love each other through eternity,Since before man could see, There was eternity. After man is come and gone. Eternity lingers on, eternity lingers on.” - The Grateful Dead
