Libra and the Problems of Marriage and Partnership
Libra is the sign of marriage, and seventh-sign people are exceptionally fortunate in their marriages. In fact, any type of partnership tends to be favorable for Librans, who are, above all, interested in people and in the activities of the world around them. Always ready to participate in a really good time, we can understand why they are popular. If quarrels take place in any group of which Libra is a member, we can rest assured the fault is not that of the seventh-sign individual, for he dislikes dissension and can always be reached through rational appeal.
Disposing hypocrisy, they are trustworthy marriage partners. They can be trusted unequivocally in matters which demand a high sense of honor. Seventh-sign types are congenial with members of their own triplicity, namely Gemini and Aquarius. They are also friendly with persons born in the fiery signs of Leo, Sagittarius and Aries. The fiery types give Librans a needed stimulus toward constructive action. They inspire the Libran with ambition, and he, in turn, exerts a balancing influence upon them.
Librans have the cooperative spirit and, in any partnership or group, they maintain goodwill toward everyone, even when friendliness is not manifest in others. They realize the necessity of maintaining peace at all costs. Love, after all, is short-lived unless supported by a spirit of friendliness and cooperation. But goodwill is fertile ground for the development of true and enduring love. We then find that seventh sign people are charming hosts and hostesses, always thinking of the enjoyment of others.
Wise Librans learn to eradicate all selfishness and egocentricity from their marital relationships, for they know instinctively that it is only the person who has high regard for others who is sufficiently developed in character to maintain good social relationships. We may not be able to eliminate all personal selfishness, but we can develop enough character to balance our limiting natural instincts, thus assuring happiness in partnerships and marriage.
