A Libra woman reminds you of many things. She reminds some people of a cross between a floating balloon and a pillow. A soft, fluffy pillow, stuffed with down, covered in satin or velvet, with silk tassels, nicely plump and inviting. I didn’t say fat. Just plump – which means rounded and curved. Sort of like the dimpled women Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and da Vinci – the Masters – liked to paint. Beautiful and zaftig. She reminds other people of a golden harp. Sometimes this image is conjured by her “harping” about various things when she’s mentally stimulated, but mostly it’s because of her melodious voice and musical manner. She’s so charming, so graceful, so determinedly cheerful . . . and she smells so heavenly.
Nearly all Libra women are well supplied with scented soaps, perfumes, colognes, talcums – fragrant candles and exotic incense. Many of them have temple bells hanging over their beds. Libra rules the mysteriously wise Orient, you know, which may be why lots of Librans lean toward Zen and Zeno.
If this seems to contradict her Venus-inspired sentiment and affectionate nature, you must remember that such contradictions constitute the whole purpose of Libra’s Scales. In one tray you place some granulated crystals of Zen dhyana and Zeno stoicism – in the other a heaping measure of powdery pleasantness and soft sentiment, with a touch of trembling vulnerability. Then you balance them, so that they are exactly even. Lots of luck. Librans are not simple, uncomplicated people. They may often take on the form and shape of happy lollipops, painted with sunny smiles and glittering glamour – but there’s always that Oriental “Double Z” to consider.
The temple bells, the candles, and the incense. Ancient wisdom. The Libra woman will remind the Virgo man who loves her of all these images of loveliness, such as fluffy pillows, balloons, lollipops, clouds, and paintings by the Masters – when her Scales are tipping in that direction. But there handwriting on the wall from an angry public, inspired by Virgo Jarvis to see the flaws of indolent, extravagant government spending, made possible by the bleeding of each individual citizen’s incentive to work and retain a fair compensation for his or her labors. In 1978, after his great victory, Howard Jarvis was being interviewed about “Prop 13” on a television show.
Unexpectedly, during the questioning by a woman interviewer, this Virgo man’s voice trembled as he was somehow compelled to say, “It’s such a wonderful thing for a man of my age, seventy-five, to be able to do more for the people of California than anyone else has ever done.” Then, undoubtedly shocking himself even more than he shocked the watching audience, Virgo Howard Jarvis broke down and openly wept, as his interviewer spontaneously threw her arms around him, moved to tears herself.
This is the clearest image of the Virgo male a Libran woman who loves one will ever be privileged to contemplate. As much as he may love her in return, with all his heart and mind and soul, he must be true to his own Sun Sign, and place service to others above all else – above even his own needs – yes, and if duty, responsibility, and dedication require, also above hers.
His shining quest is to somehow improve the world he lives in – to try as best he can to bring order out of chaos and confusion – to clarify the mistakes of Earthlings, whether they be his personal loved ones or complete strangers. He’s driven to turn the smog and pollution of human thinking into the fresh air of her own Libra harmony and balance. This is his destiny, and Vulcan’s newly felt vibrations are increasing his compulsion to follow his star – to fulfill his mission as a Virgo. And so if this man doesn’t give the Libra lady quite all the attention, sentiment, and affection she seeks at every moment, she should try a little harder to be fair in judging his gentle heart and pure motives, to show compassion for his oftentroubled thoughts, and understand that his compulsion to criticize contains the seeds of a new kind of freedom for himself… the world .. . and their own relationship.
She can help him, too, in a most important way. With his tendency to worry, despite his bright intellect, the typical Virgo man is always in danger (more so than most other Sun Signs) of falling victim to the programming and brainwashing of those who dictate a false and illusionary chronological age – after which one is more or less commanded to die, not to mention fully expected to “age” several decades before this arbitrary time. Howard Jarvis is wrong. He is still a young man, who has not completed his mission – unless he continues to imagine so vividly otherwise, and refuses to free himself from the chains of preconditioned thinking.
The Libra woman is beautifully qualified to gently, tenderly convince the Virgo man she loves that he may choose to live long past the age of the century mark, as intended by our co-Creators (see Virgo-Virgo chapter), without sacrificing either his youthful appearance or his youthful energies. If she manages to arouse his curiosity, he’ll pursue the ways and means to accomplish such a miracle as determinedly as Howard Jarvis pursued “Prop 13.” And with powerful Vulcan guiding him, he’s capable of both finding and comprehending the secret formula, which has been, for countless eons, waiting to be rediscovered.
