Libra Is Ruled by Venus

This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Libra by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modification by others.

This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances it is worth the read.

Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.

There is a short metaphysics experiment at the end.

Known as an airy, movable, masculine, cardinal, equinoctial sign and is ruled by Venus. The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd and passes into Scorpio on October 23rd.

Personality Traits

Libra personality traits include generally being thoughtful and contemplative. They usually analyze whatever gets their attention. This personality is very imaginative and prone to build dream castles in the air. They are intuitional, but tempered by reason.

      What an interesting look at Libra from the early 1900s. Not too much has changed, I think. I definitely build air castles, but also entreat those who would lay the bricks according to my mental plan.

      Thanks for a good view into astological intrepretation a hundred years ago.

      The general description fits me pretty well. Medium build light brown hair, I'm a little shorter than average and I do have a big temper. It's all really interesting and now I'm gonna go look at the Tauras page

      That's it for a libra.Many write horoscopes as they are rounding off things. There is a straightfarwardness in the text.
