Day 10: Post about your zodiac sign, and whether or not it fits you

I was born on 03 October 1992, and I am a textbook Libra.

The symbol for Libras is The Scales, which isn’t surprising considering Libras value harmony in all forms (work, relationships, friendships, emotionally, etc.).

When the scales tip and the balance is lost, Libras can very quickly feel unsettled. When this happens, I usually find myself retreating and needing more alone time than usual to hit the pause button until I figure out how I can restore the balance or the balance restores itself on its own.

Libras often live their lives with their heads in the clouds, which means that they are sometimes be better at starting things than finishing them. This is why Libras generally work best with detail oriented people; people who can help turn the hypothetical into reality.

I’ve found this to be especially true in the workplace; I generally work better with people who prefer to be in the details than in the clouds, because they bring me down to earth and I pull them up into the clouds.

When Libra falls in love, they fall hard.

The Scales are pragmatic about love, realising that each relationship has its own season. Some last one, some last many, and one will hopefully last for a lifetime of seasons; no matter the length, each relationship has its own meaning and is no less purposeful than the one before it or the one after it. This lesson took me awhile to learn, but I think one of the most important things to recognise is that there’s room for more than one epic love in your life.

Although Libras are generally outgoing people with lots of friends, they might struggle with insecurity, especially as it relates to personal identity.

This sign's lifelong question is: "Who am I?"

I find this question inexplicably intoxicating and infuriating.

I’ve found that my identity and/or personality would shift based on what stage of life I was in and who I was surrounded by the most often. I’ve always had a strong sense of self (or at least a strong sense of who I want to be) but it wasn’t until I moved to London and began living on my own that I truly became comfortable with just spending time with myself.

It’s been because of this experience that I think I am just now tapping into what it truly means to be a independent and emotionally intelligent person.

I attribute a lot of where I am today to these Libra personality traits.

My day dreams are the reason I made it to London.

My curiosity is what makes me travel.

My empathy for people is what makes me a good listener and a good friend.

My imagination is what pushes me to chase my dreams.

It’s just about finding the right balance to attain them.
