When the balance of light and dark is exactly equal. After this day, the Sun will move south of the Equator and the days will get progressively shorter in the Northern Hemisphere. With the increased darkness comes an increasing need for social interaction. Libra is the sign of relationships, especially one-on-one intimate relationships. Significant relationships function as a mirror, a way to gain feedback from others, thereby externalizing and clarifying your self. An excessive need for positive feedback can cause us to go out of our way to please others. Always placing others’ need before our own to gain their favor is a practice that can result in very superficial and co-dependent relationships. The opinion of others is always subjective and once again, it’s always important to remain centered in your own sense of self worth. From that perspective you can positively inspire and encourage others, which is Libra at it’s best — the optimistic teacher. Libra is also about the relationship we have within ourselves; our inner balance of male assertiveness and feminine receptivity. When you’re centered in your own relationship to yourself, it’s easy to create inner and outer harmony. Libra, the sign of the scales of justice, always tries to balance. Weigh and balance your options; this is your power of choice.
