(22nd September-22nd October)
You may be given a special task that is fairly pleasant today, but you may resent it anyway because you are underpaid or unappreciated. It’s time to quite harboring a grudge and speak up if you don’t like arrangements. Don’t take your personal unhappiness out on a loved one. Your fortunate astrological number for today is 475. Your financial outlook for today is strong. Your compatible sign for today is Gemini. Your lucky number is 10.
Libra is the only inanimate sign of the zodiac, all the others representing either humans or animals. Many modern astrologers regard it as the most desirable of zodiacal types because it represents the zenith of the year, the high point of the seasons, when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped. There is a mellowness and sense of relaxation in the air as mankind enjoys the last of the summer sun and the fruits of his toil. Librans too are among the most civilized of the twelve zodiacal characters and are often good looking. They have elegance, charm and good taste, are naturally kind, very gentle, and lovers of beauty, harmony (both in music and social living) and the pleasures that these bring.
They have good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced, diplomatic and even tempered.
Librans are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism – they are the kind of people of whom it is said, ‘They always make you feel better for having been with them.’ They are very social human beings. They loathe cruelty, viciousness and vulgarity and detest conflict between people, so they do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone around them, and their ideal for their own circle and for society as a whole is unity.
Their cast of mind is artistic rather than intellectual, though they are usually too moderate and well balanced to be avant garde in any artistic endeavor. They have good perception and observation and their critical ability, with which they are able to view their own efforts as well as those of others, gives their work integrity.
In their personal relationships they show understanding of the other person’s point of view, trying to resolve any differences by compromise, and are often willing to allow claims against themselves to be settled to their own disadvantage rather than spoil a relationship. They like the opposite sex to the extent of promiscuity sometimes, and may indulge in romanticism bordering on sentimentality. Their marriages, however, stand a good chance of success because they are frequently the union of ‘true minds’. The Libran’s continuing kindness toward his or her partner mollifies any hurt the latter may feel if the two have had a tiff. Nor can the Libran’s spouse often complain that he or she is not understood, for the Libran is usually the most empathetic of all the zodiacal types and the most ready to tolerate the beloved’s failings.
Possible Health Concerns
Libra governs the lumbar region, lower back and kidneys. Its subjects must beware of weaknesses in the back, and lumbago, and they are susceptible to troubles in the kidneys and bladder, especially gravel and stone. They need to avoid overindulgence in food and especially drink, for the latter can particularly harm the kidneys.

PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS
As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Libran you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.
PROBLEM: Finding yourself frequently trapped in situations that have no depth and little value to you or the other person.
SOLUTION: Try not to pretend feelings you do not have and find a way to back gracefully out of a superficial relationship; look before you leap.
PROBLEM: You find that you do not really like yourself and/or beating yourself up over not being able to please another.
SOLUTION: If you learn how to please yourself without depriving others, then you will be able to please someone else.
PROBLEM: The situations that make you ill at ease is only mildly irritating to another.
SOLUTION: Try to cultivate inner security through spiritual strength and awareness.
PROBLEM: Feeling like you are nothing: your actions being frustrating to others.
SOLUTION: Developing your feelings of self worth by expressing the positive in your nature and not letting your elitist, class consciousness show.
Some more interesting facts about your sign
The symbol associated with your sign is the scales of balance representing the balance that you continually seek in your self and your life. The scales were also adopted by our judicial system to symbolize a balance of fairness in the law which is emphasized by ‘blind justice’ holding them.
The color of choice for Libra is Blue
Your birthstone is the precious Sapphire.
The Sapphire is one of the most beautiful and sought after gems in the quartz family. It is considered good luck in many ways and one of the major healing stones.
RE: BIRTHSTONE CONTROVERSY
There is, and always have been, a controversy over ‘Birthstones’. I give you here in these pages the stones that are called your starstones, (planet stones), which viberates the strongest to your planet or sign, NOT to the month that you were born. I would also like it if those who think they know precisely what their stone is to go to the library and reference some good Astrology books such as ‘Parkers Astrology’. Sorry for the confusion, but confusion over this topic has raged for hundreds of years!
