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.
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.
