Libra (September 23-October 22)
Character Traits of the
Astrological Sun Sign
Despite the traditional Libra association with "relationships, harmony and diplomacy", Libras don't always find that it is simple for them to meet the perfect mate. In fact finding a mate does seem to be a struggle for some Libras. Perhaps it is the Libra fixation on pleasing others, or the constant need to see the other person's point of view that makes it difficult for Libra to make a choice? Libras tend to be precise communicators. Their desire for beauty and physical harmony means there are many excellent Libra artists and decorators. Look at the lyrics of Libran songwriters Paul Simon and John Lennon as excellent examples of Libra thinking and creativity. The downside of that critical thinking can sometimes manifest in a critical nature, a Libra like Simon Cowell can cut a person to pieces in a second with a few choice words. Libra also has a reputation for being hesitant or indecisive, but they are chronic fence-sitters because they have a strong pull to discover all the facts, analyze every position, before they jump into an issue. Once they have made up their minds, Librans can be incredibly stubborn. Another strong Libra trait is their desire for and association with justice. Libras make good diplomats, lawyers and judges because they are able to see all sides of a story, and Libra, the sign of the scales of justice, is devoted to the truth and fairness above all else.
