We must be courageous but also reasonable. The world admires us for walking a tightrope without falling off. It asks us to keep our balance.
— Lech Walesa
Winner of the 1983 Nobel Peace prize, first president of post-communist Poland and a Libra (Sept. 29, 1943).
On this date, the Sun leaves Virgo and continues its journey by entering the sign of Libra, fittingly on this day of Equinox, the sign of the balanced scales.
Librans are brilliant and skillful when it comes to relating to others and forming partnerships of all sorts. For a Libra, everything is better if it’s done together. Just like the Scales which symbolize their sign, Librans want to be in balance, and for life to be on an even keel. They are very objective, fair, and want to do what’s best for everyone. Libras are superb at seeing all sides of a situation, sometimes to the point of seeming indecisive.
They hate conflict, though, and may study every possible angle in the hopes of avoiding confrontation. And because they can relate to everyone’s point of view, they may seem fickle at times. But Librans make outstanding judges, lawyers or politicians. Libra’s ability to be tactful and diplomatic in all circumstances is renowned.
As the Sun moves through the sign of Libra, astrologer Auntie Moon offers all of us a To Do list that works with its energy. Here are her twelve suggestions for what to do while the Sun is in Libra:
1. Keep your promises
2. Get a really good mirror ~ a looking glass for inner or outer gazing
3. Identify the solid relationships in your life and why they work
4. Get a makeover
5. Read something romantic
6. Look for the lopsided
7. Listen to someone’s story
8. Make amends
9. Be the partner you’d like to have
11. See yourself through the eyes of others
12. Commit to something
