Libra | The Scales | CARDINAL AIR

Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac. This is why it's so focused on relationships & fairness. It is that beautiful burst of color & crisp air that comes in early Autumn. Notice how whiteness has made us focus on the niceness & passive nature over the social justice leader that Libra truly is. Yes, it can be conflict-avoidant, people pleasing, & materialistic but that is BECAUSE it's seeking to create spaces for mediation & collaboration between strong-willed people not because it's a doormat. As you study Libra make sure you don't allow the stream of fluffy & romance obsessed keywords to distract you from its sharp mind & justice focused nature. We must allow the Libra part of us (and others) to be able to express both sides of its nature to be whole. The best friend who is swallowing a bunch of anger & resentment to avoid an argument hasn't done their ShadowWeRK. A friend who tells us the truth & holds us accountable for our actions is a balanced Libra.

Libra Keywords: Justice, Balance, Strategy, Nice, Passive, Harmonious.

Libra Archetypes: The General, The Scales, Interior Design, The Judge

Libra Shadows: indecisive, passive-aggressive, conflict avoidance, bypassing, niceness, perfectionism, endlessly seeking balance, frivolous, insincere, people-pleasing, self-sacrifice, co-dependent, seeks self-security thru romantic relationships, ignores inadequacies, fixates on failures, lazy, shopaholic, overly accommodating, secretly self-serving, obstinate, cheater, perjurer, phony, evasive, co depend, addicted to love.

Seasonal Libra asks us to come together to plan for our collective survival. It reminds us how much we need each other as the plants begin to die off & the animals we've hunted all Summer hideaway with their friends in dens & caves. The birds are frantically collecting food & materials to build nests for their families. We celebrate the disappearance of the light & we honor our traditions together. The light sparkles rose gold & copper as it fades away- the light & dark hours of the day are balanced again. Every being is called to reflect back on the joys of Spring & Summer while knowing that we must face Autumn & Winter now.
