Libra
Sep 23 – Oct 22

You keep on reminiscing about times that are long gone. You feel that what you used to have was paradise compared to your current workload. You just need to realize the futility of your actions and pull yourself forward to where your reality is. Life is about moving forward. That is where you should be. Good numbers are 5, 7 and 8. Good colors today are blue and orange.

Sharp intelligence and keen memory from childhood are the traits of your star sign today. This zodiac is ruled by a metal element and displays keen acuity. They possess regular physique and exhibit a taste for the arts and literature. They have prominent chests. They are discriminating in their taste, impulsive and sensitive. You choose your interests well. You are prudent and economical, diplomatic with people, and shrewd in your business dealings.

(Sept 23rd – October 22nd) The Libra is a sign of balance, of understanding and of beautiful aesthetic.

They want everyone to get along, and they want everyone to do what they say is right. A cardinal sign ruled by the element of Air, Libra stands out as one of the most elegant and intriguing signs of the zodiac. They know how to make you feel important and listen well to others. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, Goddess of love and beauty, therefore Librans enjoy all kinds of beautiful aspects of life from art, to music, to decorating and people. Their homes are always stylish and interesting and they love the comforts of life. They tend to spend a lot of money because they want to have all of the benefits that life has to offer and that money can buy. They can be at times somewhat narcissistic because they are fed spiritually by being adored and admired. They are willing to work for your admiration, as the peacekeeper the counsellor and helper. But as a cardinal sign they are usually the ones who say that they know the way that something should happen and they also tend to be right. Librans are excellently skilled at persuasion so do not be surprised if you find yourself doing what they ask even when you didn’t want to. They have a way of helping you see their point and having you do what they want, in their way only.

Librans desire balance in all things, which is why they are primarily representative of Partnerships. They are the great lovers and the best friends because they work well with others and find commonalities between even the most different energies and people. They are intuitive people who have a sense of what is right and what is wrong but are also sometimes known as the 'people pleasers' of the Zodiac. It is because of this that they also make excellent diplomats. A highly evolved Libran is someone who knows what they are capable of and has excellent boundaries. A Libra who hasn’t been able to figure that out for themselves their life are stuck because they do not know who they are when they aren’t pleasing others. They have a loss of a sense of self which can cause serious mental disorders. The life lesson of the Libran is in fact to find balance in all things, including their relationships with others and trusting that others have the capacity to help them as well and that they do not always have to be the one who fixes all of the disagreements in the world.

Libra is a masculine energy who is ruled by the element of the air. They are represented by the scales, a balancing and measuring tool of an inner compass which shows them how much to help and how much to back off. The part of the body ruled by Libra is the lower back and buttocks as well as the kidneys. They should be aware of lower back health as well as problems in the area of the lumbar; they can also be subject to kidney infections.
