Libra is Mutable (adaptability, service-providing and expansion) Air (curious, initiative, original, and well-disciplined, quick thinkers). Libra tends to be associated with Law and Justice because of their ability to perceive a situation and fin its balance intuitively. When associating themselves with others, they tend to be extremely diplomatic yet when faced with primal issues of right and wrong, become very hard lined and stubborn. Hence they are at times referred to as “The iron hand in the velvet glove”.
Libra’s phrase is “We Balance” because of their unconscious drive to create order in their lives whether it be with friends and family (seeking a peaceful settlement) their environment (they love symmetry) or themselves as they seek to keep themselves healthy in mind body and spirit. For all their efforts to keep things balanced, they tend to get caught up in their own perceptions and tend to over look new information as it arrives, thus their tendency to miss ideas that threaten their perspective, and become upset (more with themselves) as their world view becomes distorted.
Libra is associated with Venus, a planet usually associated with Love because it is the balance between the Spirit (the circle) and Matter (the cross); thus Libra tends to be concerned with emotional issues, not taking kindly to insult and tend to carry grudges, yet reward their focus of affection with the greatest kindness and compassion.
The Libra Amulet holds the classic symbol of the scales with a deep cut frame “brushed” with air moving in a multitude of directions. The Scales of its central focus provides the balance between directions, actions and intent.
This amulet is for both the Libra sun and moon signs: The Sun signs are those of the Zodiac houses under which you are born: September 23 – October 23/24, or if you are more concerned with your moon sign, the house the moon occupied while you were born. It may also be used as an amulet should you wish to emphasize the qualities of Libra in your life, actions, position in your community or home; perfect for those who are practicing Law, educators, councilors and arbitrators.
