Libra
Libra in natural astrology
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 this Sign. 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 using the Theory of the zodiac and 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.

Libra

Adapted Libra

Excitation strengthAssociating 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.

Inhibition quicknessInhibition 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.

Sense of oppositesSense 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.

Excitation strength Sense of oppositesThe conciliator-arbiter is hyper-cooperative while knowing what he wants: with the others he’s seeking civil relationships, concrete collaborations, a negociated balance of power.

Inhibition quickness Sense of oppositesThe sidestepper-arbiter subtly analyses the elements of reality while avoiding taking any sides, negociating his alliances according to the balance he yearns for.

Libra

Unadapted Libra

Inhibition weaknessBlocking 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.

Unadapted Excitation slownessUnadapted 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.

Egalitarian phaseEgalitarian 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.

Inhibition weakness Egalitarian phaseThe beyond-control-leveler is maybe a libertine claiming a total metaphysical freedom while floating limply above the tough scuffles of life.

Unadapted Excitation slowness Egalitarian phaseThe fanciful-leveler is a mythomaniac chasing blindly his objectives of power and putting his grotesque failures down to bad luck.
