Planets in Libra
The most prominent quality of a Libra native is a sense of balance in everything they do. Since they belong to this 7th Sign of the Zodiac, aptly called the Scales, their consciousness is also pervaded by ideas about how to balance everything around them, whether it is at home or at their work-place. What they seek is to maintain harmony between opposing parties. They are also very level-headed and therefore are much sought after for practical solutions. And, because they are so energetic, they are also very alert and agile, but since they exert themselves so much, they tend to run out of steam easily. They are prone to bouts of moodiness.
Sometimes they come across as being very positive, helpful, joyful and friendly; however, at other times there will be an unmistakable dark aura surrounding their heads, and at such times they can be utterly negative and extremely insensitive to the pains of others. Although they are endowed with enough potential to make the best for themselves where they are situated, they often tend to lose focus by exploring around for other opportunities. In a nutshell, they are an intelligent and fun person to be around with. Naturally, they make great hosts and hostesses.
Astrology deals with ten planets, namely the Sun, the Moon (the two luminaries are considered planets in astrology), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Minor celestial bodies, such as the Dark Moon, asteroids and the nodal axis, are also taken into account. Each planet has its precise function in the natal chart, and represents a specific energy. The planet’s action is influenced by the sign it tenants. It plays out primarily in the area of life indicated by the house where it is posited.
Libra Ruling Planet: Venus
As many of us know, Venus (Aphrodite in Greek mythology) is the Goddess of love. She was considered to me "the mother of the Romans". She was married, but had many lovers and admirers. She was also the mother of Cupid, and could even make herself a virgin at her own will. Venus combined with Libra’s Air element gives these people true physical beauty. They are also swirling around in the social scene. Librans also love to have beautiful airy and sweet surroundings. Even though these people were born in the fall when things are starting to die, there is something bright and beautiful about them like an Indian summer. Because this sign is masculine, Libra men are considered to be one of the most admired men by women. They have masculinity with Venus’s feminine and romantic touch.
Libra is associated with balance and harmony, but your Libra planets won’t necessarily arrive that way. It’s Libra’s job to restore balance, create harmony, and cooperate with all—not just the easy jobs. Both balance and harmony require an entity to give and take equally. Again, no easy task. Fortunately, your Libra planets are up for the job. No sign is more charming, social, and able to coax the same out of another. Libra is cardinal air, so it wants to start conversations. Libra planets are experts at behavior that’s pleasing to others. They’re Venus-ruled, so they specialize in manners, courtesy, and small talk. Libra planets fit into any social situation and get along with just about everyone. They don’t want to be alone, and, because they’re gifted with the ability to pacify, they may sell out their own needs or the truth to buy momentary peace and a companion. Their real work is to see both sides of a situation, weigh the options, and keep their inner balance by remaining honest.
