The sign of Libra is ruled by Venus.
Physically it is related to the kidneys. It is said to have a masculine
nature, and is therefore more socially outgoing in its nature.
As an Air sign it is connected with the mentality and social
relationships, and as a Cardinal sign there is a dynamic expression
to the energy. There is a motivation to achieve social or relationship goals.
This sign is known for the ability to be diplomatic and create harmony.
Planetary energies in Libra are keyed towards attaining balance.
There is a strong concern with the principles of fairness and justice,
and great interest in getting people to function smoothly together.
Planets here are motivated for partnership, and there is a willingness
to compromise for the sake of a harmonious relationship.
It can be an advantage to balance this consciousness of others with
greater self-awareness and self-assertion.
The major formative experiences in your life are connected with
relationships. In these key periods changes connected with your intimate bonds to another will lead
to a revaluation of who you are and what your role is in life.
You learn at these times that being true to yourself means not always
compromising your needs for the sake of a relationship.
Indeed this kind of compromise often involves an element of manipulation -
if only through your natural charm. Nevertheless, you feel a sense
of self most strongly when in a harmonious relationship and it is here
that your talents lie. Your appreciation of beauty and your good taste
brings an atmosphere of peace. You show a natural concern for others,
but you demand that this concern goes both ways - you cannot accept a relationship,
if the romance has gone out of it,
and you are skilled at recreating conditions for love.
