The Darker Side
Social skils, artistic ways I need to brighten my days. Gentleness, diplomacy are necessary now to me. Libra Dragon gracious, good help me as you know you should.
I’m still working on the artistic bits, but all in all I think I’m doing pretty well in my journey through Libra. 🙂 It has been an interesting trip so far. Especially learning how to deal with my lack of social skills. 🙂 But I think Libra has influenced some of the social decisions I’ve been making lately…in a good way. Even when I stumble I can feel the warmth that I’ve come to associate with her. It is kind of like a parent guiding a child in manners. Maybe that isn’t the best analogy, but it is the best one I can come with at the moment.
I’ve yet to go through the darker side of Libra at this time though. And yes, there is a darker side to this social butterfly. I would think it stems from her social skills. Libra would have a difficult time developing REAL relationships…the ones where people mean more than just numbers. I’ve never been concerned with how many people there are in my life, but it seems to me that Libra wants to be liked by everyone.
I don’t really take issue with that, but I do dislike that aspect of Libra. Granted she tries to be a good companion, but you never really know if she is just saying something to obtain another goal or if she actually means it. And the thing is you can’t really get mad at her because it is in her nature to be this way. Being sincere is not high on her list of things to do.
Some might think this is an odd observation of Libra since her symbol is typically the scales…and it would probably be odd except I’m not dealing with just the typical zodiac sign. I’m trying to get to know the Dragons of the zodiac as well. And as with most of Life there is a negative and a positive to each person/thing/animal/spirit…everything. Libra may hold the image of scales, but remember that she is not the one putting the weights on those scales. She just has to figure out how to get the two sides to balance. And sometimes that requires less diplomacy and more ruthless use of her skills.
Then again I could just be an odd person. 🙂
