Enlightening Times: How are we reflections of one another?


Libra is the perfection of mirror like wisdom. In the archetype of Libra we encounter the other as an intimate reflection of ourselves. We learn to engage in the vaster experience of self/other. Just how we may experience the self other game is a vast as creation itself. An astrologer studies the planets Venus and Mars, as well as the 1st 7th house angles for basic clues into your soul's intention in regards to relationships.

The sign on your seventh house cusp tells an Astrologer what level of the mirror reflecting wisdom you are mastering in this life. The position of Venus describes the style in which you work out your karma. The relationship between your Venus and Mars describes the type of dynamics you may encounter.

Venus is the planet connected to the sign Libra. Venus is traditionally thought to be the Goddess of Love. She is also connected to harmony, marriage and money. In the Libra domain she is the influence of diplomacy. Librans are the most diplomatic sign. Libra's innate sense of "Balance" is identified with the notion of the Tarot Archetype "Justice", which correlates to Libra.

Justice has nothing to do with the trivialized human legal system. It is more in keeping with the notion of Natural law, such as evidenced in nature. Learning to be true to one's whole or true self is more in keeping with the idea of Libra. We learn to do this through the Libra archetype by merging our position with others of like mindedness. We also encounter opposition which reinforces our reflection on our true self.

The reflection of self other is the final wisdom for Libra. How are we reflections of one another? Libra learns to define itself through its relationships with others. Libras crave relationship and are often happiest as a couple. Libra craves to be deeply in love, and once they are they often feel like they are one person. The harmonious relationships formed through affinities with friends is also the Libra feeling ( a warm sense of wholeness. )

Libra is searching to understand the connectedness between people. Libra is learning Balance. Libras are often driven by extremes. Too much social or romantic interaction vs. none. Libra must learn to listen to itself - and overcome its polarized state of always seeking outside input. Libras must learn to accept their need to both self actualize and individuate within relationship.

Libra is the archetype connected with mirror reflecting wisdom. When you can see others as the perfect teacher, clown, friend, moron, etc.... you can realize the need they have to dress that way for your edification. We all co-create our realites. We are all connected and are reflections for each other. Libra is the most difficult archetype to master in terms of the self/other dance. it is almost impossible for Libra to see through the reflection game which ends in Pisces. The journey through the next 6 signs will help unwind the extremes of self-other so intrinsic to Libra.
