Libra-Aquarius: similarities and differences
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of both Signs. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.


Adapted Libra and Aquarius


S+

Similarity Libra-Aquarius: Excitation strength

S+Associating Excitation strength for Libra: the conciliator. Summer’s “daytime” is over. “Nighttime” takes over: One withdraws from oneself in order to make oneself present to the other, in order to get in touch as equals with the outside world. One exchanges, communicates, one seeks dialogue with an environment henceforth considered as a partner. One forms partnerships, one socializes, one cuts corners and disregards or transcends differences so as to link things together.

S+Recreating Excitation strength for Aquarius: the reformer. One reacts against oblivion, disillusionment, disinterest; one refuses paralysis and renunciation: reinventing and transforming oneself, rejuvenating, being born again; renewing one’s point of view, looking at things from an unprecedented perspective, telling oneself that nothing is ever lost for good, that hope is still possible; opening up closed structures, dusting off the ways of being, thinking or feeling, etc.


Difference Libra-Aquarius: No induction versus Positive induction

PIPositive induction for Aquarius: the full-of-hope. The eliminating Inhibition focuses onto a narrow field: one forgets the negative, the past, one banishes once and for all any dead values, any disenchantment, any incitement to pessimism. Thus immune to any germ of despair, one can build a brighter future, one can be sensitive to promises, to rising seeds, to optimistic perspectives.


Q−Sl−

Difference Libra-Aquarius: Inhibition quickness versus Inhibition slowness

Q−Inhibition quickness for Libra: the sidestepper. Defence reactions are quick, smooth, timely: fear is mastered. One slips between obstacles, one avoids brutal confrontations, one learns to use the social codes that divert animal aggressivity: politeness, courtesy, diplomacy, subtleties of public speaking. The mind performs quickly fine distinctions, meticulous analyses. With the Sense of opposites: arbitrations, nuances, search for balance.

Sl−Inhibition slowness for Aquarius: the visionary. The Aquarius remains open and receptive, no matter what, thanks to some monolithic, locked, immutable defence systems. He knows how to take shelter from the outside world, which he’s basing all his hopes on. An optimistic but not a fool, he reckons that his resurrection ventures will be all the more efficient that he’ll himself be stoical and steadfast in the face of adversity, not giving any ground to the others: there’s no way that his intuition of new possibilities in the making gets diverted by the ebb and flow of circumstances.


SOSP

Difference Libra-Aquarius: Sense of opposites versus Sense of proportions

SOSense of opposites for Libra: the arbiter. Opposites are associated: black-and-white choices are no longer an option. One compares antagonist elements, analyses their connections and interactions, weighs the pros and cons, strives to make non-exclusive choices. The element that was not chosen is necessary complementary, is a partner to be respected. Hence a relative indecision: the perception of antagonisms and the sensitivity to divergences is associated to a refusal of any segregation. Moderate decisions, balanced choices are factors for twinges, for dilemmas that enhance thinking: the dread of misalliance or the desire not to make mistakes subserve a careful consideration.

SPSense of proportions for Aquarius: the inventive. The Sense of syntheses gives way to the Sense of proportions: it’s about an abstract unity that must be dissociated and concretized through choices. One is in search of original alliances and unprecedented proportions between the enthusiastic promotion of impersonal causes and the protection of individual freedom. One wants to show some solidarity while keeping one’s room for manoeuvre, one wants to counterbalance optimism with a lucidity devoid of illusions. One strikes an efficient balance between prospective imagination and rigor, between perseverance and immediate opening to novelty. One is seeking domination in the name of abstract values so as to better free the other from past servitudes.


Unadapted Libra and Aquarius


w−

Similarity Libra-Aquarius: Inhibition weakness

w−Blocking Inhibition weakness for Libra: the beyond-control. One refuses any limit, any constraint, any authority, any safeguard, any border: thoughtless universalism, headlong rush into all dangers, “dysfunction of all senses” (Rimbaud). Absolute freedom - therefore excluding any discipline - leads to licentiousness, to debauchery. The content free from any container becomes shapeless, invertebrate. Rejection of restrictive norms and binding commitments. One doesn’t defend, build or safeguards anything.

w−Recovering Inhibition weakness for Aquarius: the bottomless pit. One can’t take a break in order to cool off, to have some rest, to recover: feverish excitement, exhausting bustle. One doesn’t put down any roots, one isn’t able to use one’s natural environment for thriving, for saving one’s strength. One pushes oneself too hard: no resistance, no stability, no practical interests. Prodigality, thoughtlessness, lack of foresight, lack of animal prudence. The grasshopper from the fable, the rolling stone, the absence of solid foundation.


sl+q+

Difference Libra-Aquarius: Unadapted Excitation slowness versus Unadapted Excitation quickness

sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Libra: the fanciful. The need for control, mastery, organization runs in a void, onto nonexistent or inappropriate objects. Persisting imaginary actions: paranoia, illusions of subjective power, obstinate building of castles in the air, vain tilting at windmills. One perseverates into glorified non-commitments, one gives in to romantic bewitchments or to impressions of metaphysical omnipotence, etc.

q+Unadapted Excitation quickness for Aquarius: the restless. With the Inhibition weakness, it’s expressed with great ease: brisk, unexpected, unpredictable reactions; rollercoaster mood swings, euphoric exaltations for no reason, inopportune improvisations, attraction for scandals, going overboard, abrupt segues, slip-ups, pathological cyclothymia; perfunctory attempts to take actions that fizzle out, constant fantasia, quick comprehension or fickle feelings that don’t leave any trace afterwards.


EP

Difference Libra-Aquarius: Egalitarian phase versus Paradoxical phase

EPEgalitarian phase for Libra: the leveler. Associativity evens out: one refuses to choose, one wants to be on good terms with everyone, one flirts with one’s enemies, one associates indiscriminately with all environments without picking sides. Possible non-violence turns into inconsistency. Whatever the circumstances are, one plays it open-minded: compromises. Corners are systematically cut. At worst, one plays the game well with the same contempt or the same indifference towards allies or adversaries. The heart of hearts and the social environment are evened out: one is worth what one’s environment or time is worth; one spends one’s time being fashionable in disregard of any authenticity.

Paradoxical phase for Aquarius: the unrealistic. One gives much prominence to what’s positive or promising, while playing down the realities that are negative, that incite pessimism or fatalism. A mere nothing is enough to discern anything wonderful, inspiring, extraordinary, unprecedented or marvellous, where others would just see something very commonplace and usual. Thoughtless optimism, visionary imagination disconnected from practical realities; tendency to establish one’s domination over the others through the irrational, through colossal promises, puppet hopes, magic potions and miracle cures; through putting out smoke and mirrors. Mirages and pixie dust.
