September 22 – October 23
In the Cosmic Astrology system Libra is the sign of Highest Realization. It is the first of the three signs that embraces the physical body, activating the blue power flame of the tri-fold heart chakra. If it were not for the physical body there would be no such thing as separation and duality. Separation engenders the idea that there is a world ‘out there.’ The Highest Realization a soul can achieve is the awareness that there is nothing ‘out there’ it is all your own reflection. The whole world, including the universe, is your own individual projection, the reflection of your own consciousness. Every relationship you ever form is your higher Self’s decision to know itself better. In Libra we move from the Scale, which measures the self with everything else, to the Mirror, which provides us with no choice but to realize the Self in everything.
Libra is the 9 o’clock hour on the cosmic clock, which corresponds to the 12th house of the birth chart. Since the 12th house speaks to the ways in which you sabotage yourself, and also contains your entire past within it, it is easy to see the affinity here. This is the experience of Physical Power on the cosmic clock, where if you are not yet conscious you experience the influence others have over you until you realize you are giving them that power. And if you are more self-aware, you understand the gift of the physical world to offer you the experience of duality. Duality is required to experience Love. This is why you are here in physical form.
Wherever Libra is in your birth chart you have the opportunity to connect with and understand your own reflection through the relationships you attract. Here you can rediscover yourself through the mirrored reflection that allows you to look more closely at the parts of yourself you still refuse to acknowledge. The more fully you take responsibility for your own experience the more comfortable you will be in your own skin. If your Sun sign is Libra, you are here to master the concept of the mirrored Self, allowing your authentic Self to shine through and transmute duality and the effects of valuing others more than your Self. Every Libra is here to learn that there is nothing ‘out there’ at all.
