Our delineation of the Libra horoscope follows a very logical method, based on ancient basic and archetypal principles. It's NOT about stereotypes.
Every zodiac sign is the result of the so-called Quadruplicities or Modes (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs) and Triplicities (related to the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth).
The Libra horoscope is based on the Cardinal Air energies:
The Cardinal principle is about acting (doing) and urges. It implies initiating activity and executing power. Cardinal is changing, disturbing and unsettling. Cardinals are the "do-ers" and initiators.
The Air principle is about mental and communicative dispositions. It represents the gaseous state and is light, warm and fast. It wants to distribute in a diffused manner.
Blending cardinal air into something tangible or material, you get the keyword of "the chimney."
The main characteristics of the Sun (representing your self-expressing life force) in the cardinal air sign Libra are:
Libra is prone to what we call "Identity Reversal or Exchange"; reversing or exchanging the "I" and "ME" for the "You" and vice versa.
Often, Libras have it difficult to speak out the words "I" or "ME", exchanging them for the word "You" (or referring to "the other").
They reverse the polarity between the "I" and "ME" and the "You."
An example will make it more clear: when Libras ask: "Shouldn't YOU take a vacation?", this translates to "I want a vacation!."
