    Born on a cusp: Libra-Scorpio
    buddy icons

    Libra is the seventh Sign of the Zodiac; Scorpio is the eighth. Libra's interests focus on art, beauty, sensuality and other people, and Libra tends to regard all these from an intellectual standpoint. Scorpio's interest is in discovering other people's emotions and how they respond to the world around them. Scorpio is the Sign of Sex and Death, Beginnings and Endings; they explore these ideas from an emotional standpoint. Libra/Scorpios strive to create balance and harmony between self and other through investigation and probing. They are often strongly intuitive and penetrating. They have a need to be well-liked.

    The astrological symbol of Libra is the Scales. Like the scales of justice, Librans are objective and just. They abhor unfairness and conflict, striving above all for peace, but at times they are easily deterred from their beliefs. Librans are able to see all sides of an argument, but as their mental scales tip back and forth, they may never find balance. The astrological symbol of Scorpio is the Scorpion. Like the mythical scorpion, those born under this Sign tend to be strong-willed and wary of being controlled by others. In keeping with Libra's Cardinal quality, Libra/Scorpios are diplomatic and co-operative; they are skilled at initiating group projects. They can be stubborn, refusing to give up when others have long since become bored and abandoned a project. Libra/Scorpios get things done when no one else thought it possible. In this way, the Fixed quality of Scorpio is expressed. When Libra/Scorpios set goals for themselves, they are determined to succeed. They have their own agenda and work to achieve their desires.

    Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus (and her Greek equivalent, Aphrodite) was the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. She represented joy, happiness and appreciation of beautiful things. Scorpio is ruled by the Planets Mars and Pluto. In ancient Roman mythology, Mars (and his Greek equivalent, Ares) was the god of war. Ancient astrologers assigned both Aries and Scorpio to this Planet. Pluto (and his Greek equivalent, Hades) was the god of the underworld, and when the Planet Pluto was discovered early in the 20th century, astrologers assigned Scorpio to its influence.

    Libra/Scorpios are seductive and attractive, commanding and intense. Cultural awareness and a talkative nature help them shine in the social situations they so enjoy. The Element associated with Libra is Air. The Element associated with Scorpio is Water. Libra/Scorpios are skilled at communication and abstract reasoning, and their intelligence combines with their interest in others to become an intellectual exploration of those around them. They may repress their emotions, but underneath they are lusty and perceptive. Libra/Scorpios are motivated and loyal, but they are often misunderstood and may be seen as dictatorial or sarcastic. If they have an ulterior motive, they can be overbearing, but in a subtle, sly or manipulative way.

    Libra/Scorpios are both mystical and scientific, a combination that makes them very aware of what is happening around them; they are a Sign of great depth. If they aren't careful, though, their passionate nature may lead them into self-indulgence or compulsion. In their leisure time, Libra/Scorpios tend to have a definite lazy streak. However, this is barely perceptible because they also enjoy difficult pursuits that challenge them to excel, and they refuse to settle for being anything less than the best. They may have a particular affinity for activities that let them get out in nature.

    In love relationships, Libra is playful, romantic and devoted, and Scorpio is intense, intimate and dependent on their partner. The great strength of the Libra/Scorpio-born is in their drive for peace and harmony and their determination to see things through to the end. Their skill at seeing all sides of a situation with great passion and strength makes them one of the most powerful characters of the Zodiac.

    24 September - 23 October

    Libra is the seventh Sign of the Zodiac, and it is at this point that we start to see a shift. While the first six Signs of the Zodiac focus on the individual, the last six focus on the individual's contact with others, and with the world at large. Librans are preoccupied with others and how they relate to them. We can call this the Sign of partnership - these people never want to be alone. For a Libran everything is better if it is done by a pair. Librans are good at pairing up because they epitomise balance, harmony and a sense of fair play. While they are true team players at work, their favourite partnership is at home - marriage. Librans feel most complete when they are coupled up with their lover, forever.

    Libra is symbolised by the scales and, just as that balancing mechanism strives to stay even, so the Librans want to remain on an even keel. Think of the Scales of Justice and how they work at striking the right balance. Likewise, Librans are objective, just, and want to do what is best for everyone. It's possible, though, that this penchant for fairness is for a different reason - Librans abhor conflict. The Scales study every possible angle in the hopes of achieving peace and harmony, so much so that others may see them as fickle and indecisive. If that's what it takes to avoid a confrontation, that's fine with the Scales. The Libra-born are keen strategists, organising groups with poise and getting the job done (in keeping with the Cardinal Quality assigned to this Sign). You can expect the Scales to be companionable and sociable people.

    Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was a smooth seductress who was at her best amid pleasurable excess. Well, Librans are certainly carrying the torch for her today. The Scales are cultured, refined and love beautiful things. Most of all, they love beautiful people, which is why Librans do so well at cocktail parties or at the theatre, opera or ballet. Those born under this Sign always have the right thing to say and know how to make others feel comfortable. Librans are so adept at charming conversation that they need to be mindful of overstepping their boundaries and appearing vain or gossipy (the Scales do love intrigue). At their best, however, Librans are a pleasure to be with. Librans are artistic, stylish and enjoy creating a beautiful world. The converse of this is that bored Librans can become apathetic and lazy - but they'll smile anyway.

    The Element associated with Libra is Air, and that means reaching higher, specifically to intellectual heights. Librans like to put their minds to good use, and enjoy communicating their thoughts to others. They use conversation in order to understand others better, knowledge about people is the important thing for Librans. You can expect the Scales to make a fair argument, too, since they live by the principles of diplomacy and compromise. When this approach doesn't work, however, Librans are not above using their persuasive charms to get their way. Manipulative? No. Librans are really too nice for that. Plus, any tricks these folks play are usually to build themselves up, since the Scales can easily lose their confidence. Librans are polite and don't like to fight, they prefer to talk things through.

    Remember, these folks know how to communicate (they're Air Signs) so they're bound to make their point. Librans don't get in a huff when faced with an opposing viewpoint. Rather, they take a deep breath and consider all the options in the spirit of co-operation.

    Librans at play may not be as energergetic as at work, if you can call socialising work (and the Scales do). That's why exercise for Librans needs to have a social component to it, such as that found at a gym. Alternatively, Librans love the outdoors, so riding and biking can also prove fun. They also appreciate the colours of the sunset sky, that melding of ivory, pink and light blue. In the game of love, Librans are a bundle of energy, romantic and loyal to the core. The Scales need to take care of their lower backs, though, which tend to shoulder any burdens they may be carrying.

    The great strength of the Libra-born is their quest for fairness, peace and harmony. That the Scales are the great diplomats of the Zodiac further helps their case.

    Your EQ is

    50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
    51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
    71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
    91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
    111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
    131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
    150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

    Nabasa ko na ang blog nina Ate Kathryn at Kuya Ryan pero hindi ko pa nalibot lahat. Naintriga ako. Naalala ko ang isang pangyayari sa aking buhay. Halos isang taon na rin ang nakaraan.

    Anak ng tipaklong Shinrai, Filipino ka! Managalog ka naman!

    Ayan po. Nanagalog na nga ako. Hindi pala. Ang ibig ko pong sabihin ay ginamit ko na ang sarili kong wika. Unang pagkakataon na ito ay gawin ko sa aking blog. Gayunpaman, ako ay natutuwa sa aking sarili sapagkat maayos kong naihayag ang nais kong sabihin gamit ang wika ng pinakamamahal kong bayan.

    Sa palagay ko ay mapapatawad ako ng aking inang bayan sa kabila ng madalas kong paggamit ng wikang banyaga. Ang totoo po nyan ay nais kong matuto ng ibang wika mula sa Europa nang sa gayon ay hindi ko na gamitin ang Ingles, ang wikang sinira ng mga tao mula sa Bagong Mundo (o kung ano man ang madugong tawag sa lugar nila).

    Naisip ko tuloy, hindi naman sa panggagaya, na gamitin ang Filipino sa pagpapahayag dito sa Blogspot. Ito ang blog ko na madalas makaranas ng pagbabago. Salamat at buhay pa ito. Natutuwa ako.

    Sa kabila ng kagalakan ko tungkol sa mababaw na bagay, kailangan ko nang matulog sapagkat nagrereklamo na ang katawan ko, lalo na ang aking buto, sapagkat hindi na normal ang pangyayari sa aking 'buhay'.

    Elegant and Brilliant

    You are elegant, withdrawn, and brilliant.
    Your mind is a weapon, able to solve any puzzle.
    You are also great at poking holes in arguments and common beliefs.

    For you, comfort and calm are very important.
    You tend to thrive on your own and shrug off most affection.
    You prefer to protect your emotions and stay strong.
