Archetype Shorts: Libra and Idealism

couple-1853499_1280

“Why can’t everybody just love each other and simply coexist with each other?” is something a Libra would say. They think that if everybody can just cooperate, compromise, and love each other, the world would be a better place.

Libras tend to forget that it’s hard for everyone to “just love each other.” There’s flaws, and due to those flaws, there are misunderstandings that will eventually turn to hatred if nothing is done. Libra is idealistic in the sense that it forgets the ugliness of the world. Libra is a masculine, external sign is ruled by Venus after all… Libra seeks for beauty in the outside world and is constantly disappointed when it sees that the world isn’t always so beautiful.

And with the ugly side of the world, sometimes, cooperation and compromise isn’t enough, and that’s something a Libra can struggle to learn. They may think that a rational compromise will make the cut, but… will it? Will a clean cut, rational solution solve a messy, irrational problem? Libras can often be baffled by some of the problems they face because they try to have a rational take on a problem that requires an irrational action.

It’s hard for Libra to accept that the world can’t “just love each other.” It’s hard for Libra to accept that love can’t exist without hate… After all, how can we truly know love if we don’t have an opportunity to feel a lack of it, which is hate? Libra has to realize that some problems in the world can’t simply be fixed by compromise because it’s too emotionally painful to fix. Some problems can’t just be forgiven and done, because not all problems are easy to move on from.

This is something that Scorpio, the sign after Libra will understand. With every sign, there is a problem that will be positively addressed in the next sign… Yet with that positive address, a new problem will rise for that next sign. This is what ultimately connects the signs, and the constant emergence of solving and having issues is what keep the sign cycle going.
