With the Scales as their symbol, the people born under the Sign Libra (Tula), the 7th Sign in the Zodiac, are full of natural charm. From this point in the Zodiac calendar, there is a noticeable shift. Whereas the last six Signs focus on the individual’s contact with the world, the first six Signs tend to focus on themselves. It is well known that the Libra-born people hate to be alone. They will start conversations and socialize, keep themselves surrounded with people, and will focus on how best they can relate to people. They believe in team-work more than in solo efforts, and therefore perform better in a team. Even at home, their best comes out when they share work with their family members. The typical qualities of a Libra-born are balance, harmony and a sense of fair play. Fair and objective, the Libra tend to do things that will benefit everyone. Not surprising that the Scales are often called upon to settle disputes, something they do with a keen sense of justice. This tendency for justice often comes from a deep desire to avoid all kinds of arguments. Keen planners and great organizers of groups, they know how to get things done smoothly.
The Libra-born also have an intellectual bent of mind. They like to convey their thoughts to others with clarity. They employ a definite tact to get to know others better, to make a fair argument, be diplomatic and to compromise. However, if a combined effort of all these fails to perform as desired, their persuasive charms are employed in full scale to get their way. However, it is not to say that the Libra are manipulative – in fact, they are often too nice for that. Polite and never willing to fight, preferring to talk things peacefully, they would rather get things sorted out through discussions. They rarely get angry, even when faced with an opposing viewpoint. They would rather take a deep breath and consider all the options in the spirit of cooperation. Diplomatic and polite, the Libra-born hate irrational behavior. Always balanced and pleasant, they possess an easygoing manner that makes things they desire, quite easily accessible to them. However, they are often accused of being lazy. But it is only because they work overtime and can get stressed out. Their indecisiveness is their biggest drawback, which often leads to delays, as they keep weighing the pros and cons.
Emotional relationships are based on an equal give and take for the Libra-born. They tend to get attracted to the opposite sex quite often. But before getting into a life-long commitment, they should weigh things carefully for themselves. As far as Libra Sign is concerned, Libra – Libra, Libra – Gemini, and Libra – Aquarius are ideally suited for each other. When in love, the Libra are a bundle of energy, romantic and loyal to the core. Libra Moon does not like to be alone… they thrive in a partnership. Many will get married young or choose to move in with someone. In order to facilitate this, they may make a lot of concessions to their partner in order to keep the peace. They are social, sympathetic and they love a rousing debate. They need someone they can feel an intellectual and emotional rapport with.
Libra Moon wants someone with them all the time… even for that little trip to fill up the gas tank. They believe there is strength in numbers. Charming and attractive, they are often found flirting. They are usually very gentle and refined in their manners. They make friends easily, and may be fickle.
Even if they don’t want to, The Libra Moon Sign person will see flaws in their relationships and everything around them. Even worse, until it is fixed, it will continue to gnaw at them. Although a natural diplomat with acquaintances, they will argue with their partners until they win… even if it takes a long time. Having the last word is important to them. You may feel like they’ve got you on trial all the time and you’re getting grilled, though they’re great to have on your side when they’re supporting you.
Moon in Libra gives everyone a feeling of peace and harmony. The possibility of conflicts is reducing a lot. We become much better in compromising and finding a common ground with people. Therefore, in the days of Libra it is good to make peace with those, who we have offended. Now it will be much easier to do so as we all can easily forgive and understand each other.
In these days, we pay a lot of attention to the external decency, etiquette rules, and therefore we become sensitive and pleasant to talk to. We do not want to argue with anyone, to hurt anyone. It is easy to agree with someone else’s opinion. Our mood is stable.
However, the moon in Libra gives some indecisiveness and a tendency to fluctuations. In these days it is difficult to make an important decision, difficult to make a choice. Therefore, it is better to leave the important decisions until the better times. Dedicate the days of Libra to settling up the relations, to the search for joint solutions, to conversations and meetings that require some diplomatic skills.
Libra is an Air sign, managed by Venus and Chiron. Thus, the moon is on a visit at Venus’s and Chiron’s house. Moon in Libra gives an unconscious attraction to the balance, because, as you remember, one of the Libra’s properties is setting the equilibrium point – in any situation, we must find an equilibrium position, balancing different forces.
Here we see the moon that is manifesting the unconscious processes of setting up a person to the balance, harmony, beauty, grace and justice. Such a person will differ with his peacefulness and a tendency to compromises. At any cost he would seek to avoid quarrels and conflicts or any sharp corners. Moon in Libra gives the sub conscious diplomatic skills, a good taste, but also gives some refinement, sophistication, mannerisms, and in the worst case – snobbery.
Moon in Libra also makes person to prefer a refined society, beautiful things, and works of art. Here are working: Venus, which is suggesting harmony and refined forms, Chiron, which shows the possibility of the subtle world reflection and it’s embodiment and Saturn, a very strong planet, that is also related with the sign of Libra and its formation. If Saturn is in Libra, it is giving a certain “system” to this sign. Such a person will unconsciously have his life very well organized. This is a definite aesthetic system: everything should have its own place in life, there should be combined both: “the high” and “the low” elements, everything must be in harmony and in the right proportions. And from such disposition comes: love for the works of art, for refined society, for apartments and houses with a beautiful interior (and a beautiful environment in general). Because in order to maintain the normal psychological condition of a person, his environment must be harmonious and beautiful. Without it the Lunar Libra will feel uncomfortable.
Moon in Libra likes to have their way and will accomplish their goals with the support of others. They make excellent planners, but they would rather delegate to others the actual hands on work. They are good at paying attention to details, problem solving and strategizing. They tend to lean towards overindulging, impracticalities and inconsistencies in their personal life.
They are often uncertain. Their moods change from moment to moment, not only from up to down and back again, but waffling back and forth as well. They are even-tempered throughout all the changes and usually cheerful. They are transparent… it is hard for them to hide their feelings. At the same time, they can change their personality to fit who they are spending time with. This is skill, not a trick. This allows other to feel comfortable around them, though it may be confusing at times. Intellectual stimulation is a must.
Indecisive, Libra Moon must weigh each side of a decision over and over to make sure they are choosing correctly… even on what to have for lunch. At the same time, they are concerned with balance in life. If they sense things are out of balance, they will do what they must to redress this fact, even if someone has to lose out once in a while.
They love their family and home, though it may not be openly apparent to all. They are affectionate and encouraging to those around them. They seem to attract more than their share of good and bad situations with legal matters, life-changing decisions and partners. They like the arts and have very aesthetic tastes. Libra Moon may be a bit forgetful, and they don’t cope well with violence or aggression.
