Sep 24. – Oct 23.
The man born under the sign of Libra strives for balance and harmony. Life may be a swing, once down, once up, but he can not accept that; he must run back and forth to find balance. His sensitive nature is happiest when the world around him is in order and cheerful.
Usually he is not the athletic type – about sporting events, he won´t care. But putting him at a table with a board game – chess, backgammon, scrabble, settlers of cartan – he will join with pleasure. He is a good conversationalist and expects the same from others. You will have to make an effort here. Who can not distinguish Beethoven from Picasso, should not become involved with him in the first place.
He is friendly, has a strong sense of justice and gives everyone a chance. He is tactful, diplomatic, and has a sense of humor. Since he is peaceful and loving by nature, he takes injustices very bad. At work he is a wonderful boss and employee. He supports adaptation and compromise when reconciling conflicting parties. But because it is hard for him to decide right away, he tends to defer difficult decisions. Often he needs a partner who does unpleasant tasks for him.
In business disagreements he prefers to solving problems unpartisanly, perhaps by a commission. Of course, he wants to be a part of that commission. But since no one is better to smooth out difficulties, resolve tensions and appease the enraged, the commission will come to a decision that happens to be the same that he wished for from the beginning.
And that´s the catch: The Libra man wants to have it his way, but at the same time he avoids passing judgment or becoming involved personally. Do it not go his way, one will discover a completely different man behind his rational, binding, tolerant exterior.
He often is right in his intuition – do not try so to deceive him or to throw dust in his eyes. He knows the reality of things, and when it comes to understanding people´s inner motifs, he has X-ray vision. When he sees through somebody, he will seek to understand the other´s motivations. And he will not be sentimental. He does not like drama.
The Libra man loves beauty in architecture, painting, music, theater – and in women. During courtship, he uses charme as a weapon. He knows how to win a woman, but has one problem: When she is ready, he will not quite know whether he wants it or not. The cause of his indecision is because he weighs up the pros and cons of the exact right moment. Everything has to be perfect. The slightest doubt can pull him away and stop him. Some women may love this so much, that they will prolong his agony intentionally. (more…)
