Am I A True Libra?

Hey guys! I’m back and I’ve searched through that list of blog ideas high and low, and I decided to explore my astrological sign. I know tons about my astrological sign, but I want to look for descriptions of my signs, tendencies, and misconceptions to see if they match me. Before we get started, I just want to say I’m not big on astrology, I don’t even know my big 3 I’m more into faith and not coincidences but nothing against people who believe in it.  

What Am I? 

I am a September Libra for reference. Libras are the 7th astrological sign. I’ll start by giving a few basic facts about my sign. Libra is an air sign along with Gemini, and Aquarius. This sign ranges from September 22nd to October 23rd. The symbol is Scales. The ruling planet is Venus. The stone is an Opal, and the zodiac quality is Cardinal. Libra represents a balanced scale most likely because the Sun passed across the face of the constellation at the time of the autumnal equinox in September, when day and night are of roughly equal length, so the heavens are considered “balanced”.  

Aleria vs. Libra 

Now let’s get to the comparisons. “Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life. These air signs are the aesthetes of the zodiac: Ruled by Venus, the planet that governs love, beauty, and money, Libras adore high art, intellectualism, and connoisseurship.” I can agree with this wholeheartedly. I love symmetry, everything I do has to have structure, stability, and be the exact same if I am doing something that requires more than one thing. I am obsessed with love as you all can probabaly see through my writing. I truly consider myself to be a hopeless romantic, but I don’t know how true that may be lol. Beauty is more of a fun thing for me it distracts whenever I’m thinking too much I just do ym hair or makeup, and I love money as anybody else would say. As far as Intellectualism and high art I enjoy them both but I think as a writer I have to love them. 

“Libras want to avoid conflict at any cost, which means they put themselves last most of the time. Their self-sacrificing nature can be great for their loved ones but often leave Libras feeling burnt out and unappreciated. That toxic positivity can take a major toll on their self-confidence.” I do try to keep conflict to a minimum. I used to blow up over every little situation but over the years I have learned that not every action deserves a reaction and that I can be calm while getting my point across. I’ve stopped caring to the point where I don’t feel like I have to get my point across at all. I do feel as if I have a self-sacrificing nature as well but I am also selfish but in a good way. Like remembering to take time for myself, love me, and make sure that I have everything that I need before I give to others. Sometimes I do get that burnt out, unappreciated feeling but so does everyone. It doesn’t really affect my confidence but I know it does for others. 

“Libra is another one of those signs that will stay quiet when something is off. Their sign is represented by the scales, so they’re all about harmony and keeping the peace. However, there’s only so much a person can take.” ‘When their sense of balance is being thrown off-kilter, Libras will go silent,’ Montúfar says. I really do pay attention to everything around me and if one little thing changes red flags start to raise and red buzzers begin to blare loud as a train. I can’t ignore it, so I store it in the back of my mind and I continue to watch for other flags and as more and more flags appear the further and further I step away from that person or thing. After so long I’ll attempt to have a talk and if the person brushes me off after asking then I simply become quiet and fully remove myself from the situation.  

“As one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac, Libras have a way of making your love story unfold in a magical way. They are sweet, affectionate, and attentive. They always seem to know the right words to say and how to treat a partner the right way. Also, they like to be pursued.” This is my favorite quote yet. I do consider Libras the most romantic because of the way I have seen libras treat one another as well as other signs. We only know one way to love people and that way is so healthy and infectious that it teaches others how to love as well. People have told me I’m a smooth talker and I don’t hate the idea of being pursued, I love a good chase, but I don’t like one-sided chases. I like for me and my presumed partner to chase one another.   

That’s all for today guys! I know this ended abruptly but it was starting to get too long, who knows I may even make it a series, stay tuned. Bye !!!

  1. As someone who is also not very into astrology that much but I still know some things about my own sign(leo), I can relate to what is generally known about a certain sign vs. the actual person who happens to be that sign. I really enjoyed this post:)
