Understand the Libra

Attain Balance With the Scales

While love, love, love is beautiful Libra’s favorite tune, all has not been light and breezy this year for you, gorgeous. Indeed, 2011 has been a crucible not just for the banks and the economy, but also for all Libras—giving you a rare opportunity to refine your genius at grace under pressure and show us truly what you’re working with.

As we wish you a very happy birthday, charming Libra, we commend you for surviving, and hopefully, ultimately thriving in the face of the rigors of 2011! Here is what we know about you—you are truly astrology’s lover (not its fighter) and, your relationship skills are unparalleled. Truly not a solo operator, you really do live to be in partnership… to find your mate. The goddess/god of harmony, diplomacy, the arts and music, you are noted for your grace and your desire to share, gravitating to balance like a moth to light while often waffling unmercifully when it comes to decisions. (Libra rules the kidneys, which are crucial for maintaining the equilibrium of the body). Another reflection of the polarities you balance ever so delicately is that of gender: For Libra is an air sign (masculine) but also ruled by Venus the planet of all things feminine… the plot thickens!

As one of the three masculine air signs, along with Gemini and Aquarius, you are the conversationalist of the Zodiac: with strong masculinely-driven powers of rational analytical skills, everything around you is marked by the completely feminine Venusian qualities of beauty, order and tranquillity. In fact, pure Libran energy is sheer poetry in motion!

Harmonious Librans do not like disorder, chaos, emotional disruption, strife or to be hurried at any time. Their pace is consistent, elegant and sophisticated, as is their working style. It is not advisable to place inordinate pressure or extra demands on Libra, or he or she will shut right down. For Libras do not like to extend themselves beyond a nice consistent relationship in their daily rhythm.

They generally do not like to ruin their manicure or muss that freshly pressed shirt by getting their hands too dirty. For Libra, is really most comfortable gliding across the surface of life, which is not to say that they are superficial, indulgent to adverse to hard work… necessarily. Let’s just say their credo might be, “No fuss, not muss” or “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”

Professionally, Libras are extremely fair judges and often drawn to the legal arena with their Cardinal nature (together with Capricorn and Aries) making them effective leaders. In fact, the symbol for Libra is the scales, the only sign of the Zodiac that is an inanimate object, which also can represent the legal justice system. The scales may also represent the Libran quest for objectivity over subjective or sentimental evaluation of the issues.

Noted for their physical beauty, their pleasing countenance is marked by well-proportioned features (this goes for both Libra and Libra Rising). I once heard someone describe the characteristic Libran beauty as being like a smiley face, due to the evenness of their features and the amenability of their countenance. There is generally a detached quality to a Libran and if you want to argue, don’t waste your breath!

Since 2009, Saturn has been in the sign of Libra where it is exalted teaching Libras new lessons about commitment, seriousness of purpose, being in their power and re-evaluating their work and life purpose. The hard square to Pluto which culminates this year (both Saturn and Pluto are malifics and teach tough lessons about endings, and being a grown up!) may have forced you gentle Libra to get serious about asserting your authority, establishing boundaries and re-assessing just what you really want out of both life and love.

Beginning in March, the third leg of this T-square kicked in when Uranus planet of individuality moved into Aries, intensifying the heat. The resulting pressure has been forging a resilience and self-reliance you may not have known you had or thought possible. See, Lovely Libra, you CAN be peaceful, loving AND strong!

Listen carefully, Libra, as the gods test your capacity for soft power and hard decisions. You are being propelled now, out of indecisiveness, hurtling towards your goals! For 2011, love and relationships are most definitely NOT business as usual for you, rapidly changing Libra.

    I am a Libra and proud to be just that. Libra’s will be your ride a die partner,but don’t let them even think you are playing with their love for you then the knives will come out. We do not like to feel that our significant other is getting bored with us,or having extra curricular activities outside our relationship. We also do not like it when we are taken for granted cause we will shut it down and move around.

    I need to make a correction. I am a Libra married to a Virgo. Sorry about that. I was doing 4 things at once. We all makes mistakes, right?

    To Virgo 2787, (I think), Dude, I am married to a Libra and he and I get along just fine. We have been together since 2000 and were married in 2006. Only one fight. I don’t know what kind of “ladies” you are meeting but evidently, you are attracted to the WRONG ones. Maybe it’s time to sit back and re-asess yourself. Maybe it’s not ALL the Libra’s fault. Maybe you have some to. Are you messy? Do you like clutter? Libra’s do like order and balance and hate clutter so maybe if your abode is cluttered, so is your mind.

    Im a good person with a great personality, maby hard to deal with at times,ive been hurt badly to the point where I dont really trust anyone,libra’s are good people, and most of the time taken for granted or used. I don’t like to be confronted on b.s. I dont like to be asked the same questions over and over. We are very picky about the way we look and how clean our homes are. Love a libra,lol

    Librans have pretty much wrecked my life with their self-absorbed ways. For some reason, though, I seem to attract them, and every time I swear I’ll never get involved with another one, I end up going against my better judgment and doing just that. I must not be learning some lesson the Universe wants to teach me, because I keep getting these people thrust into my life; even my family is full of them. I’m old-fashioned enough to still invest in paper greeting cards, and I go broke every September and October buying birthday cards for the family members.

    Rocky is correct a Libra will steal, cheat and rip you off for everything you have and then try to lie their way out without thinking about anybody else’s feelings Don’t date a Libra if you do it is headed for trouble

  9. Rocky

    Libera’s will cheat and lie to you for no good reason, never trust them with anything, especially with love and money….!

    Oh wow I got the chills. Shamefully, that’s me on point!!! The procastination, indecisiveness, confusion & getting blnded by insecurities has holted me from even the simplest of things!!! Shame! Shame!

  11. Michele

    Definitely right on the mark! =)I hope to see 2013’s too. Cleanliness is next to Godliness for me as well although if need be I will get down and dirty to getter done sometimes. Same here Sandy it’s been a rough 5 years for me but I still weigh things just not quiet to the same degree which does tend to move things along a lil faster lol depending on what it relates too. Although being pushed into things still leaves me at a stand still or backing up. Amen to that Monica, that he is.

  12. Diane

    I am a Libra with Libra rising, so you have it nailed down to a T!My chart was done by a well known astrologer recently..and though i never received the whole thing…after doing it she refered to me as “Mr.Power”..lol it would be interesting to know what all she found. many have done my chart, but it’s been years ago, and I don’t remember much except I also have a pieces moon., and each person afterwards treated me with a new found respect. Strange?? yes, but true!, Spirit Wolf Muirgheas

    Enjoyed your blog very much! Past 3 years have been extremely difficult. Left so much behind, for somewhat of a family reunion that soon turned very ugly indeed leaving me hurt beyond words. It was a trigger into darkness, leading to depression wherein I relived all the extreme trauma acquired over my life. It was a bad place to be. Climbing out of that place now, with help. Relearning who I am, getting stronger, better. Seeing now that perhaps this is what the stars sent and I am not alone in this. Gives me consolation and hope.
    Thank you Katrina. Peace and blessings.
    P.S. I’ve gotten down and dirty working..no problem for me! But a disorganized messy anything? Definite problem.

    The past couple of years have been very hard for me. I seem to come threw most of the way. and find myself stuggling with who I am and what is my real purpose. Thank you for the article. I will be sure to check back as I tend to get lost .

  21. Sheetal

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to unsredtand so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you simply could do with some percent to pressure the message home a bit, however other than that, that is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  22. Sandy

    Hi Katrina.

    I do resonate with this take on my essence. I am not into the cleanliness is next to Godliness thing and actually do get very dirty for my job and while out with my horse. LOL. I would say the rest is on target for me.

    It is interesting to read about the upheavals that we have been going through since ’09. I have definitely been through a lot of trials in the past few years. I have had to learn to make those (shutter) impossible decisions and have been tested endlessly to see if I can stick with my decision! No small fate for a Libra. LOL. I’ve actually gotten to where I can sometimes say lets just do it without weighing things from all sides a million times.

    Thank you for the article.
