No one surpasses a Libra when it comes to charm. With beauty-loving Venus as their ruler, Libras easily bewitch their admirers – and sometimes their foes, too. A flirtatious smile or graceful gesture – always in the best of taste – will have you under their spell.
Yet it’s not always about physical beauty. A Libra’s inner grace is the source of their charisma. Who could resist the glow of such loveliness? As if this enticement weren’t enough, Libras are also known for their artistic talent, especially in verbal self-expression. Libra is a brainy Air sign, after all.
Take a look at this amazing list of brilliant Libra writers: e.e. cummings, T.S. Eliot, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Truman Capote, Anne Rice, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Eugene O’Neill and Thomas Wolfe, to name just a few. Libras have been known to light up the silver screen as well. Today’s gifted actors include Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Will Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts and Clive Owen. On that note, let’s take a look at the charts of Jackman, Watts and Owen to discover the secret charms of these lovely Libras.
Hugh Jackman (October 12, 1968)
From Wolverine in X-Men to romantic leading man in Kate and Leopold and Australia, this handsome Aussie has a wide range of talent. Not surprising, he can sing and dance, too – he won a Tony Award in 2004 for his leading role in the musical The Boy from Oz.
Much of Jackman’s versatility comes from his Moon in Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communications. Emotionally, Jackman is restless and curious – and he needs to verbalize what he’s feeling. All this is combined with Sun and Mercury in Libra, so the Air sign emphasis really empowers Jackman’s self-expression. He’s also a perfectionist, as indicated by Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in detail-oriented Virgo, another sign ruled by intellectual Mercury.
His airy nature gets some depth, however, from Venus conjunct Neptune in Scorpio. This influence empowers his artistic talent, heightens his sexual magnetism, and lends him a fascination for all things mysterious. In romance, his nature is deep and complicated. Jackman married actor Deborra-Lee Furness in 1996. Engraved on their wedding rings in Sanskrit is “om paramar mainamar,” which means “we dedicate our union to a greater source.” Yeah – this Libra is more than meets the eye.
Naomi Watts (September 28, 1968)
Born in England, Watts moved to Australia at age 14. She has come a long way since starting out in commercials Down Under. Most notably, she starred opposite Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush in Ned Kelly (2003), and opposite Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro in 21 Grams (2003), which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
Born just two weeks before Jackman, Watts shares his Sun and Mercury in Libra, Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Virgo, among other placements. The Libra influences, along with Moon in outgoing Sagittarius, indicate a highly sociable nature that craves adventure and loves to be in love. Aside from being artistic, she values spirituality, equality and relationships. In May 2006, Watts was named a special representative to the U.N. program for HIV/AIDS.
In romance, Venus in Scorpio indicates that she’s intensely passionate and possessive. Mars in Virgo makes her particular about her lovers. Watts dated actor Heath Ledger from 2002-2004. Since the spring of 2005, she has been involved with actor Liev Schreiber, another Libra. The couple has two children. They’ve also acted together, co-starring alongside Edward Norton in the American/Chinese film The Painted Veil (2006). Since Libra rules partnerships, this couple may have what it takes to work, play and love together for a long time to come.
Clive Owen (October 3, 1964)
Owen has earned acclaim for his work in such films as Closer (2004), for which he won an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor, Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007), and Children of Men (2006). More recently, he starred opposite Naomi Watts in The International (2009).
Owen has a complex chart. Although Sun and Mercury in Libra heighten his creativity, Moon, Uranus and Pluto conjunct in Virgo indicate a turbulent emotional nature that stems from a difficult childhood. He was born in England, and has described his childhood as “rough.” His father left the family of five boys when Owen was only three years old. On the positive side, the Virgo placements give Owen a talent for analysis. He likes to know the underlying causes of behavior, much as a psychologist does.
Still, a Libran love of the arts prompted him to become an actor. Having Venus and Mars in dramatic Leo no doubt assisted in his success. In romance, the Leo placements indicate a nature that craves attention. He’s passionate, willful and proud. In 1995, Owen married Sarah-Jane Fenton. The couple has two daughters.
Whether or not they’re artists like Jackman, Watts and Owen, Libra strives to make the world a better place through beauty, love, equality and peace.
