Spending a few weeks enjoying the glorious colors of a New England Fall reminded me that Libra's concern with beauty is based just as much on the natural cycle of the seasons as it is on our cultural ideas of beauty. While fashion is ruled by Libra, the transformative beauty of birch, oak and maple leaves turning golden, orange and red amidst the deep pine greens touches on the deeper beauty of the soul. We see that beauty is fragile and precious, and comes in different forms in different seasons of our lives. Venus, Libra's ruler, calls us to connect to our unique beauty so that we can mingle with other souls and recognize their beauty.

As I mentioned in my Aries Full Moon 2009 newsletter, Libra's Scales symbolize our self-worth and what we bring to the collective table. Scales measure how one side comes into balance with the other side, and Libra calls us to step forward and engage with others on a level playing field. We might think we're not as smart, rich or beautiful as the person we're dealing with or the situation we find ourselves in, but Libra says, "Go on, try to balance the scales." At the end of our lives, when our hearts are weighed on Maat's scales of truth, we are all equal. If we can learn that lesson while we live, we truly are the equal of anyone we meet. If we respect ourselves and our experience of life, we can respect anyone. Out of that respect, we learn to come to agreements about what is fair, just, necessary and true.

Peace. Justice. Balance. Harmony. Partnership. These are words that we use to describe the sign of Libra. But what do these words mean? Peace is not only the absence of war; it also means 'to agree' or 'to receive with favor' or to be 'capable of pleasing'. Harmony means 'an agreement of feeling', as in music. Balance means 'a general harmony between parts'. Partner comes from a word meaning 'portion' or 'part holder', as in someone we share something with. Justice comes from a word that means 'righteousness or equity' as in being equal. All these words that we use to describe the meaning of Libra tell us that we have to learn to share with others, to connect with others. And so Libra also rules the social norms we all live by.
