Profile & Characteristics — The Greeks saw this constellation as the scales, an instrument of justice and balance. As an air sign that marks the midpoint of the year, Libras strive for mental equilibrium and harmony in their life and environment. They weigh things one against the other, considering every angle of an issue in an attempt to reach equanimity. By taking a logical approach to reaching an objective judgment, they can save time and make wise decisions quickly. Otherwise, they can find themselves miserably bound in indecision and fluctuation, straddling the fence or wavering from one extreme of the scale to the other.
To maintain balance, they must be willing to constantly re-evaluate situations in an ever-changing world, accepting positive and negative developments as valid and vital ingredients necessary for life growth. It’s important that they maintain an inner connection to the voice within that tells them when to make adjustments for their highest good. Libras take time out to ponder and refine their thoughts, building wisdom, stabilizing themselves and bringing order to their mind. They’re liable to strike out aggressively when their inner equilibrium is challenged. A lack of confidence in their decision-making skills can cause them to choose manipulative or deceitful tactics, or become co-dependent.

Libras may find their feet also require special care. Pedicures and a periodic foot massage or reflexology treatment can relieve tired aching feet while harmonizing emotions. Reflexology and other massage techniques will help preserve the well-being of organs and glands.
