Libra (that's me ^.^)

 

The Sun is in this seventh sign of the zodiac, from September 23 until October 22 each year. The symbol for Libra is the Scales. In Libra the Sun is tolerant, affectionate, and well balanced. You are a courteous and agreeable person who is considerate of other people's feelings. You have a personal charisma attracting friends. Functioning well when working in harmony with other people, you are an excellent team player. You like being on the winning team.

You prefer working in a pleasant and very orderly atmosphere, with people who don't put undue pressure on you. You like to see your role as that of peacemaker. Peace and tranquillity are so important. The least sign of hostility or discord is very upsetting to you. You refrain from speaking your mind if you fear your thoughts would alienate or start an argument. Always ready to compromise or mediate, you need to be careful not to appear wishy-washy or less than reliable.

In many ways, you are dependent upon the approval of others. Libra is the sign of relationships. You think of yourself as half a partnership rather than an individual. Because of this feeling of dependence, you put your mate's needs and desires ahead of your own. You may become confused as to what you want at any particular time, versus what your partner wants. Your partner's goals and ambitions become your goals and ambitions. You are the true helpmate. Because of this attitude, Libra is very stable and dependent in a relationship, even a bad one.

As attached as you are to your partner, you may not really show it much. In your quest for balance and harmony, you rarely have or express strong emotions of any kind. Yours is a very dispassionate demeanor that is detached. You don't invest much passion or feeling in your relationships, loving with your head instead of your heart.

When cast in a supervisory role you may have some difficulties. This is because you weigh each decision before choosing your direction. You can experience problems if you are called on to make frequent snap decisions for the group. You are an excellent go-between, and not as good at being the leader or boss. Unfortunately, such a balanced view of situations sometimes makes decisive action more difficult. You have a hard time making everyday decisions of little or no consequence. On the big issues, you may vacillate indefinitely.

One of your main personality traits is a love of justice. You are insistent on fair play. In this too, you have a very balanced and unbiased way of looking at everything in your world. Accordingly, you are often called on to be mediator in family disputes or in disagreements at work. Your impartial judgment can always see both sides of a matter. You can be very cool and detached, keeping your feelings well under control in pursuit of fairness.

Your love of balance and harmony allows you to appreciate music and the arts. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet closely associated with artistic endeavors. If you don't have talent yourself, you probably to do have an interest and excellent taste in these matters.

Courteous and refined, good manners are important to you. You exhibit them and you expect them. You are especially repelled by vulgarity and coarseness. Tactful, diplomatic,refined and socially successful, you strive to say and do the right thing. It is always so important for you to make the right impression.

7-3 Libra/Gemini

The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a very airy and magnetic personality, voluble,expressive, talkative, with an ability to hold an audience. Dramatics are your specialty and you know how to get your point across with flair. This combination blends the emotional balance, courtesy and friendliness of Libra with the intellectual cleverness, flexibility and adaptability of Gemini. Success is gained through a wide array of intellectual interest and self-expression. You don't dive deeply into any subjects, but you have a sharp mind that penetrates quickly and accurate. You may work your mind overtime, but otherwise you don't believe much in hard work. You can be hard to pin down and draw out of the clouds. Glibness and social poise attach to this position. You don't like to take on responsibility and you don't work well under pressure. Restless and nervous, you need to be kept busy and occupied. You can see both sides of any question and at time you have some difficult making up your mind. You definitely belong to the intellectual group and you may feel that there should be no limit to the amount of education one obtains. You have a sense of balance or equilibrium,tending to keep affairs harmonious and pleasant.

Health Tips by Sign

Your Ruling Planet: Libra is ruled by seductive, adorable Venus, planet of beauty, love, fun, and comfort.

The part of the body your sign rules: The lower back.

Your Metabolism: Low.

Your Health Profile:

Few signs are as well groomed and polished as yours. Libra generally takes good care of his or her body (crowding your shelves are body lotions, shampoos, and moisturizers), but you could be neglecting to take into account the influence of what you put into your mouth. Your weakness? Sweets. But don't banish them forever. Instead, indulge your love of quality, sensuality and flavor all at once by treating yourself to one tiny, superb Godiva chocolate daily--and savor it. Otherwise you will find yourself with both your body size and craving for treats growing exponentially out of proportion! Sneak snacking is a classic Libra diet problem.

Libra also loves to party but keeping up with hectic club scenes can make you lose track of time, and rob you of sleep. You cannot make up for lost rest and consistent self-care, you can only repair the damage. So get back home at a reasonable time for most of your nights out.

The ultimate partnering sign, Libra does best when they team up with another person in any exercise program. Tennis (doubles!), squash, basketball, golf, volleyball, square dancing, sailing and other sports and activities that require a partner are all perfect for you to try.

Finally, pay attention to the condition of your lower back. Learn calisthenics to strengthen the muscles in this area and drink lots of water and cranberry juice to stay healthy on the inside, too.

Your Biggest Asset:

Grace, balance and good coordination. Try any sport which requires them, like gymnastics, golf, ball room dancing, and platform diving.

What Drives You Crazy:

Physical ugliness in all its manifestations, from having a bad hair day, to working out in a poorly-decorated gym, to wearing a scruffy old sweatshirt will repel and depress you.

Health Risks:

Libra runs the risk of being too social at the gym, and forgetting why he or she came in the first place. Checking out attractive people, spending time at the juice bar catching up on gossip, getting involved with a clique, none of these things is helping you keep fit, Libra. But don't let your pendulum swing too far to the opposite extreme. Pushing yourself too hard until you drop from exhaustion or injury won't keep you fit either. Keep yourself in balance and harmony.

Stress by Sign

In times of stress, Libras have to get out and see friends--the more the better. Libra is not a loner. A cardinal sign,Libras do not have problems accepting change--they just want to be sure their decision is the right one. As air sign, you like to "poll" people around you for an opinion. By taking a consensus you are able to define your own feelings more sharply. Libras are not the dizzy social butterflies they may appear on the surface. Highly intelligent, Libra rarely lets emotion get in the way of the analytical process. They are continually taking in new information and reprocessing it, trying, as the scale tips and dips, to find their center. Thus Libras, like Gemini, are the interviewers of the zodiac.

Libras rely heaviest on their mates and business partners (since Libra is the natural ruler of the 7th house.) You need partners to be the sounding boards to your ideas. If your significant other isn't in the mood to listen to all the details of what is bothering you, you can fall into a blue funk.

Venus-ruled Libra does best in soothing, beautiful surroundings. Take your laptop out to the garden to work,bring a bouquet of fresh flowers to your desk, add a few personal touches to your hotel room when on a business trip to soften it (a photograph or two would help). This need for harmony and beauty extends to your appearance too. That's why you will spend some time primping in front of a mirror before a big interview or tough presentation. Don't let others rag you out for this--looking good works well for Libra. When you look the best you can, you are the best you can be. A perfect thing you can do to feel better is treat yourself to a health or beauty treatment. Something luxurious, like an aromatherapy massage would be great. The place tension first strikes is your lower back (the part of the body Libra rules) so having a back rub would make very good sense.

Your sign would benefit greatly from a day at a health spa (whether deep in the countryside or a fabulous spa in town). Hopefully, it will be a place where light foods are prepared for lunch, and sports or other activities are blended with special treatments to boost your looks. If going to a spa isn't possible, you should plan a relaxing day at home where you are completely pampered by your spouse or lover. From breakfast in bed, a subsequent seaweed scrub in the shower,a gentle scalp rub and shampoo/conditioner treatment, to warm cream rubbed all over your body--a look of total refreshment will show up on that charming face of yours! (Are there any unattractive Libras? No way!) To top it off,have a memorable dinner for two in an elegant restaurant with soft lighting and flowers. Venus-ruled signs love to eat out, but Libra wants the restaurant to be special.

Some Libras enjoy a good court case since Libra rules the justice system. Find a really good court room drama to read about in a novel, or a rent a court room drama (The Verdict,Twelve Angry Men, Presumed Innocent, Inherit The Wind . . .) at the video store. Or tune into Court TV on cable. Even if it is a silly case, it might take your mind off your own troubles.

Libra also loves beautiful scent, so finding a new cologne would give Libra an instant lift, female or male. Learning to arrange flowers or improve your gardening skills might appeal to you as well. When it comes to hearing, sensuous Libra excels, so put on whatever music suits your mood. Do you play the guitar, piano, or some other instrument? Perfect! Practice a little, even if you're rusty. Making music will rejuvenate your soul.

One final thought: since you know so many people, some of them are inevitably famous and successful. Call one or two for an introduction, reference, or just plain old advice--ifanyone can do this, it's you, Libra. After all, as the saying goes, it's not what you know, but who you know!

LIBRA

It's common knowledge that Libras are the peacemakers of the world. What you rarely hear is that this sign has produced some of the greatest military strategists in history. In competitive career situations, don't dare turn your back on a Libra woman; you'll find her sitting in your chair. In the battle to snag a man, no one is more crafty than Libra. By all appearances a woman of sweetness and light, this sign possesses the fabled iron hand in the velvet glove. And once she's got him, she'll never let him go. Until she changes her mind.

Libra gals love to expose themselves -- slowly, seductively. It charges them up as much as the men they do it for. Black garter belts and silky stockings are very Libran. Their lovemaking is at first like a graceful ballet. They touch and go, they tease, they pirouette away just when it's time for entry. Or reentry. But there's method in their madness. They want their lovers to come on like raging bulls. And by that time Libra, too, is horny as hell.
