LIBRA

September 23 - October 22

The sign of Libra

The beginning of Libra corresponds to the autumn equinox, the moment of balance of the forces of nature. And in fact those born under the sign of Libra seek balance above everything. The archetype connected to Libra is the Sage, that is the part of the individual and collective psyche connected to knowledge through experience, truth and awareness.
A sign of air ruled by Venus, in it the mental stimulus prevails to the detriment of emotions and the practical side of life. Passions and instincts do not govern the actions of the balance, which instead aspires to a very specific purpose: that of bringing peace, of creating balance and harmony by giving one's help in a dispassionate way, without seeking something in return and without prejudice, well understanding that the truth is never just one.
A lover of art, especially the beautiful and elegant one, his innate aesthetic sense shuns chaos and disorder, exaggeration and vulgarity. Very discreet although equally sociable, he is extremely diplomatic and thoughtful in his manner and loves to be appreciated and attract admiring glances.
What moves a Libra is the search for the truth behind appearances, the profound meaning of things and events, the search for the reasons that move the Universe beyond the personal vision of things: Libra aims to break the veil of Maya. , the illusion that prevents the human being from experiencing the Truth.
Communication for Libra takes place through an enigmatic, parabolic language, full of hidden symbols and meanings.
The relationships that Libra creates are fundamental for his life: friendship and love always come first, so much so that Libra often forgets their own needs to satisfy those of others, especially in the relationship as a couple.
But be careful because despite the controlled and lovable appearance and the calm and always smiling attitude, the perfectionism of Libra can lead to excessive criticism and could explode if too "compressed". The biggest challenge of the sign of Libra is wanting to please everyone at any cost. In fact, they tend to avoid discussion and seek people's approval by giving priority to the needs of others rather than their own. This creates a rift between what they really want and what they do, thus making a part of themselves emerge as a backlash (which they usually refuse to accept and recognize) self-centered and that in exchange for favors demands something back, wonderful all the people around him who will ask themselves the reason for this sudden change.

THE STONE OF LIBRA: THE LAPISLAZULI
Libras are generally extremely diplomatic and dislike conflict; they are gifted with a real talent for creating harmony in the environment in which they find themselves, seeking compromises and solutions: lapis lazuli assist in expressing their point of view that often those born under this sign tend to hide if it could disturb the idyllic atmosphere that they have created or, worse, generate a conflict.
Libras love luxury and elegance and in this too, lapis lazuli, considered a beautiful gift from the gods, can help, being a stone capable of attracting prosperity and facilitating the realization of one's ideas.

THE STONE OF LIBRA: THE OPAL
Opal amplifies the good and bad sides of the character of those born under the sign of Libra, pushing them towards the perfection they seek. It also helps to deal with the inner work that needs to be done on oneself and that Libras tend to avoid, also stimulating creativity, freeing from inhibitions and bringing out one's intuitive side. It works on self-esteem, improving the image that one gives of oneself and the opinion of others about us, very important concepts for the sign. The sign of Libra does not like strong emotions, their intensity could disturb them. Opal is a strong stabilizer of emotions and attracts love, desire and eroticism in abundance, topics in which Libra is still interested. But be careful because wearing an opal, a stone with primordial energy, can also intensify these emotions!

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: THE TANTRIC TWINS
The mission of the sign of Libra is to build a stable and healthy relationship both with oneself and with others. The Tantric Gemini crystal (two crystals of the same size united by the same face and sharing the same base), symbol of the couple relationship and of male and female energies, will attract the soul mate and will teach to always consider oneself as an individual who is finds in a relationship with a peer rather than identifying with or depending on the partner. The relationship will not be experienced as a symbiosis, but as a sharing between individuals, who, although deeply connected, always remain distinct and unique.
Tantric twins are one of the twelve master crystals, found only in the hyaline quartz family (rock crystal), which has always been recognized as the most powerful generator and amplifier of subtle energy, due to its purity.
It has the ability to store and transmit information and to illuminate all that is dark. It is said they were planned just before the fall of Atlantis, but that's another story ... 

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: THE ROSE QUARTZ
The Sign of Libra is linked to good taste, harmony and the couple; rose quartz, linked to the fourth chakra, Anahata, represents love, beauty, peace and forgiveness and is considered to be the stone of peace in love and goes well with the characteristics of Libra for its refined appearance and its gentle energy. No other sign hates conflicts as much as Libra, and those born under this sign will also draw inspiration from it for the support this crystal offers in balancing emotions, thus giving inner peace and harmony.

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: THE EYE OF A TIGER
Wanting to please at all costs can often lead a Libra to sacrifice their needs in favor of harmony: the tiger's eye leads to having more attention for their own needs, without forgetting those of others and thus avoiding the "backlash that could see a Libra explode if their expectations of the reward for the sacrifices made are not met. In this sense, this stone can be flanked by rose quartz which attenuates the selfish side that can lead Libras to be ruthless in order to achieve their goals (they are very good at hiding it!).

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: PURPLE FLUORITE
Libras are generally extremely diplomatic, with a real talent for creating harmony in the environment in which they find themselves, seeking compromises and solutions often at the expense of themselves and fearing conflicts more than anything else. Purple fluorspar will help in this by enduring discussions in order to turn conflict into cooperation.

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: AQUAMARINE
Indolence is usually a distinctive trait of the sign of Libra. The continuous search for perfection in fact leads Libras to develop a strong tendency to judge others: aquamarine teaches them to be tolerant.

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: THE HELIOTROPE

Being able to take into consideration every aspect of a situation leads Libras to remain rather indecisive, as they would like to find the solution that satisfies everyone. In this way, they risk losing the taste of the present moment, focusing instead on a potentially perfect future (which will probably never come!). Heliotrope reduces confusion and leads to thinking about the present, making dreams perhaps less perfect, but more usable.

THE STONES THAT HELP LIBRA: THE CARNELIAN
The continuous search for perfection leads the Libra to develop a strong tendency to judge others: the Carnelian invites to be compassionate instead of judging. Furthermore, the Carnelian pushes to action when the subtle laziness and indecision of the Libra tends to prevail.
