We can come into partnership with the energy of the cosmos to help us in our intent to balance the extremes in our life.

If we consider the air element of this sun sign, this energy is the wind of the mind, communicating ideas, beliefs, to other people and avoiding conflict. Clear communication is essential for Libras and Libra time. Though we may think of air signs as highly mental they are also social. This time is one to balance discussion, thinking on your own and sharing it.

The other focus for Libra time is on beauty and aesthetics. Where do you see beauty in your life? Can you bring more beauty into your home? Where will you find beauty outside?

The image above is a photomicrograph of the mineral salt associated with Libra. Knowing nothing about astrology or Libra when I did the photography decades ago, all the images showed beautiful forms and balance. On the other hand, Scorpio was the hardest sign to find any beautiful patterns, but that’s another story.
