Libra The Scales: The Peacemaker (September 24 – October 23)
The Scales can be cooperative, charming and diplomatic as they avoid conflict. They tend towards being indecisive, insincere and extravagant. They seek fairness in other people. Libra is always seeking balance as it often happens to elude them. Libra is said to see both sides and seek balance.
Libra is said to see both sides of a situation and are considered open-minded and just. Libra is urbane, meaning the are suave, courteous, and refined in manner. They are very partnership oriented and idealistic in seeking balance. Yet, this can also be their biggest problem.

The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.
Your Planet Venus
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.
Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.
The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Libra – kidneys, skin, lumbar region, buttocks.
The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body: Venus – throat, kidneys, thymus gland, sense of touch, ovaries.
In medical astrology, Libra is ruled by the kidneys, skin, lumbar region, buttocks. Your key to good health is finding true balance and what that means to you and your body.
You can be prone to such issues as kidney stones, urinary tract infections, hormonal issues as well as, back and buttock pain such as sciatica and piriformis syndrome.
When you are stressed you can also have skin issues such as acne, eczema or psoriasis. Find balance in your body. Not too much, not too little. Do activities that are not too competitive and more gentle on the body.
Your healing color is blue.
Libra is yang in nature. Yang Energy is more masculine, is related to light, sun, brightness, heaven, time, south, east and left. Yang signs are the odd numbered ones. Those belonging to yang energy have a tendency to be more assertive and self-expressive.

The Lucky Libra
Luck. What exactly is luck? Is luck being at the right place at the right time? Finding that lucky penny? Always landing on your feet? Finding a four leaf clover? Discovering bird droppings on your shoulder? What ever your idea of luck, research has found that people are divided.
Libras are lucky people. You’re ruled by the planet Venus and Friday is a good day for you to work on issues pertaining to money, artistic endeavors and doing things associated with beauty. Six is your lucky number. Six vibrates to Venus – ruler of Taurus and Libra. Six is the number of love and romance.
The Goddess, Venus is a sexual female who is receptivity, attractive, drawn to the arts, culture, beauty, money, and of course, harmony. Six is the number of balance and harmony. A six sided crystal will help you bring into balance your relationship with yourself and therefore with others. Opening your heart to unconditional love. Now get lucky!
Money and Libra
Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.
Libras have expensive taste. You like the best of everything! You want your home, work and clothes to express your high standards. Your champagne taste is important to you, as you feel it represents who you are or who you want to become. You love spending money on really beautiful things.
Of course this is fine, if you have the budget to do this. Unfortunately, if you don’t have the budget, you can get into trouble, or debt or have other issues with money. Fortunately, you also seem to attract those who are rich and powerful and want to give you expensive gifts and opportunities. Finding a way to bring in money can open doors and channel money in ways you would never imagine. Now get money!
Libra and Career
Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!
Libras are born arbitrators. You are at your best when you are in the middle, negotiating situations and bringing together people. You are the peacemaker of the zodiac. It is your absolute tact that is one of your biggest qualities. For better or worse, this quality is what attracts you to careers such as being an attorney, a judge or having a legal position.
Your love of beauty and the arts also attracts you to jobs that allow you to bring out your best traits such as a fashion designer, landscaper, interior designer or beautician. You can be an art dealer or musician, graphic artist or textile designer or use your negotiating skills as an editor, diplomat or super agent. You will find that your working environment and/or those you work around can really influence your performance levels. You are a seeker of harmony, so you are constantly looking for the balance in all situations.
Be aware of situations that are aggressive, competitive or unsettling, as these situations will cause you great unrest. Now find success!
Happiness and Libra
Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.
Libras can be happy people. You are drawn to beauty, art and money. You love good manners, art galleries, art movies, buying a new scarf or lipstick, reading a fashion magazine or enjoying a perfect sunset. The unhappiness comes with your indecisiveness and it can be your downfall.
The symbol of balance, yet you have the worse time achieving it. You can never seem to make up your mind. You weigh the pros and cons, you observe the situation, seeing both sides of the story and look at the problem from every angle. In the meantime, there is complete deadlock. This also has a lot to do with the fact that you are ultimately one of the laziest signs of the zodiac! You are drawn so much to the superficial (looks, gossip, image, presentation), that you lose sight of what really lies beneath. Since you always appear to be on top of things, it is easy for you to charm people and make a good impression.
But, you can also bring it all crashing down with your tact and tongue and your ability to speak before thinking about the consequences. Since you cannot handle the outcomes, you tend to walk away from a difficult or messy situation. You then leave the mess for others to clean up. Now find happiness!
Sex and Libra
Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.
Libras are sexual beings. You are the epitome of beauty. You never have trouble finding a partner from your pool of admirers. But, it is romance that is more important to you rather than just sex. Remember, it is also important to find time for fulfilling sex. To really enjoy your sexual health, you need to get out of your head and into your body. If you don’t, you tend to think too much and therefore, will not enjoy the experience right in front of you! Making the first move is not your strong suit. In fact, you can be the most indecisive of the zodiac. Therefore, by the time you decide if you like your new found friend, you usually miss the opportunity.
While deciding if you like them or not, what approach should you consider, what scenario should you create, which perfume should you wear for them, what meal should you cook, what sheets should you put on the bed….? These exhausting decisions can make you just stand still and end up doing nothing. After you have finally decided to make a commitment, you are also apt to find the quickest way out of the relationship when things get too tough, messy or unclear. Now get sex!
On the Edge: Born on the Cusp
If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs. This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!
Cusp of Libra and Virgo
September 19 and September 25
Balanced by the planet of love, Venus and the planet of communication, Mercury, you have both rational and creative minds that give you the best of both worlds. You are considered the Cusp of Beauty. Your need to have everything in order, beautiful and aesthetically perfect, is your greatest gift and also your greatest nemesis.
When something is out of balance, not as pretty or far from organized, your anxiety and fear take over! You sense the stress creeping up your spine and realize your surroundings may not be in order, or you have immersed yourself too deeply in something that pulls your focus. You have a tendency to get “caught up” in your appearance and material things, spending too much money in the process. This is when you jump into crisis mode.
Because you possess a strong work ethic and an analytical mind, it is hard for you to fathom how things could get out of hand. You may have a tendency to beat yourself up or lose your self worth. You can then become even indecisive. Remember, you have sensitivities to both your internal and external worlds. Use this power to find your center again. This is where your need for the spiritual side must come in to play.
Cusp of Libra and Scorpio
October 19 to October 25
This is considered the cusp of Criticism and Drama! And no wonder! You are ruled by the power of two passionate planets, Venus and Pluto, entrenched in the elements of air and water and because of this, you have a flare for dramatic determination and precision criticism! This yin/yang pairing brings you incredible power, competent behavior, a sexual appeal, glowing charm, intellect, and brutal honesty.
It can also make you much more cynical and sarcastic, picky and self-absorbed and basically, blunt.
Emotionally charged, your ego can bring unyielding judgment (Libra) and a precise skill set (Scorpio), which gives you the power to realize your dreams. Your ability to conquer such heights can also make it easy to get carried away, creating a “my way or no way” attitude.
Learn to balance your intellectual side with your emotional side and keep your ego in check. Balance the mental nature of Libra with the emotional side of Scorpio, and use these great insights, passions and strength to see your goals through to the completion.
