Libra and Autumn Go Hand in Hand with Beauty

Astrology - The common balancing scales symbolize Libras, but don’t let this be misleading. The cosmic connotations of the scales have much more meaning than merely a simple mundane implement.

Libra crosses the ecliptic and the equator as the Autumnal Equinox ushers in the fall season. As the belief goes, this is an important balancing factor. The night is considered equal to daytime in length. Though the precisely equal days do not coincide exactly with the equinox, the imagery of balance still remains attached to the sign of Libra.

Libra stands at the threshold of the second half of the zodiac. The signs on the opposite half are complementary, balancing the oppositional energies through Libra’s expertise at relationships.

The first relationship is part of the Libra symbolism. Signifying the original reach to the outside world, Libra gets most of the credit in knowing how to handle relationships. A certain gentle, and harmonious personality, Libra is ruled by Venus.

Astrology - Yet, being a cardinal air sign*, Libra takes the lead. No one even notices that the Libra has taken control of a situation, because the gentle mode of this native has handled all of the surrounding relationships in the situation.

With two scales en hand, Libra weighs and balances. Often viewing relationships in terms of polarities, the Libra native organizes the surrounding environment. Astrology expert, Robert Hand, explains that the Libra needs to juxtapose self-perception through comparing inside and outside realms of existence.

For this reason, Libra seeks to be part of a pair. This is how Libras grow.

Astrology - Libra is a lover of beauty. The native may or may not be good at art, but still needs art to be part of the Libran sphere. Tending toward favoring art that is pretty is the Libran penchant. As per most air* signs, Libra does not handle emotional intensity very well. Some are so much so; they can barely stand to hear a sad story.
