Anyone who is involved with a Libran will call them a schizophrenic clock. (with no offense to the gravity of the said disorder). Watching a Libran can be almost comical – if not frustrating. They will tip a scale here and then gently tip it there and this carries on till they’ve reached a balanced decision. (which they would’ve agonised over for hours ) Never mind if the tipping of scales was just over which painting should go up first or in which order should they study. Push a Libra to make up their mind and you’ll see shades of Virgo silent disapproval coupled with the Scorpio sullenness making you blink and wonder what happened to the breezy soul you were speaking with.
The gorgeous Libra is related to the Greek Goddess of Justice, Themis, the Greek mythology version of Atalanta (meaning balance), and Astraea (daughter of Themis), who went up to heaven and became the constellation of Virgo, (you cannot talk about Libra without mentioning Virgo) and carried the scales of justice, which is the constellation Libra. Libra marks the point of the autumn equinox (in the northern hemisphere) when the days and nights are of equal length.
The first six signs of the zodiac are more inwardly focused, since we are still figuring our equation with not just ourselves but are more inwardly figuring, the final six zodiacs connect us to the external or the external. Libra being the starting point of this dance is more sociable and people-oriented signs. And yet this zodiac is depicted as the inanimate pair of scales. This basically indicates we’ve moved beyond the instincts of the body and feelings into the realm of logic and rationality.
Libra being a cardinal sign displays an iron will which under the softness of the Venusian charm can quite be a shocker for someone who just wanted to take a cuddly bunny home. Libras are all about balance and fairness, and that includes their relationships. If they feel like they aren’t being respected, then they have no problem saying what’s on their minds or walking away. They are natural in partnerships – and it’s no surprise that their spirit animal is a swan. According to Swan Lifeline, it has been known for swans to die of a broken heart if they lose their partners, as swans generally mate for life – so is the case for Librans. They will wait patiently for their soul mates to come along. Even if Libras know a relationship isn’t working they’ll do everything they can to get their significant other to stay with them or to avoid a breakup altogether. For some Librans, however, who do end up in unhappy relationships, they may either turn to alcohol or any other addiction to shield them from reality.
You can attract a Libra by simply being generous and kind – it’s a big sign that they look out for in their partners – you can be amazing looking and crazily rich but if your Libra partner gets a whiff of your pettiness or unfairness – they’ll be out of the door in a jiffy. The reason why a Libran is attracted to generosity is that they are also incredibly generous themselves. They will spoil you with their generosity once you get them to trust you. Do remember, just because they’re into you doesn’t mean they’ll accept being treated unfairly. And to give them credit, they’ll not try to change you and expect you to accept them with their crooked halo and perfect smiles!
While Libras will beam their sunny smiles at everyone – they secretly can be incredibly hard on themselves. The best advice you can give your Libra is to not judge themselves more harshly than they would judge one of their dear friends. They have a natural affinity to smell out bullshit so while they may not create a huge drama, they’ll create a distance so wide – you’ll be left wondering what happened! A very Scorpian trait that most Librans with their Sun, Moon being in libra is having a memory of an elephant.
They never forget when someone has done them wrong.
But after all, who can ever forget a Libra? They’ll remind you of the summer wine, long walks and the gentle rain watched through the window with a cocoa mug in your hand. Fuzzy and warm and with an iron fist in a velvet glove. A libra is for keeps.
