Libra this, air sign that
By: Lio Salazar, Contributor
On the last weekend of Libra season, you may be asking yourself, “What’s it like being born under the best zodiac sign?” You could probably ask Griffin Managing Editor Jon Dusza, who celebrated his birthday this past Tuesday, and I bet he’d tell you that being a Libra is pretty great.
From this author’s own experience, being a Libra can be pretty polarizing. There are a large handful of people who love Libras, love you and love the energy that Libras bring to a room. Libras tend to be very charismatic individuals who love to have eyes on them. They’re incredibly social people who love to make connections with people.
Libra is one of the cardinal signs, meaning that they kick off the season. The cardinal signs are the following: Libra for fall, Capricorn for winter, Aries for spring and Cancer for summer. Cardinal signs like to get things started and tend to be “doers” when creating. Looking at these cardinal signs, they’re all very charismatic individuals. Think about your friends that are one of these cardinal signs and how well-liked they are amongst your friends. This then implies that your friends with cardinal signs are driven people who are really good at getting tasks finished.
Libra is also an air sign, joined by Gemini and Aquarius. Air signs are the social butterflies of the zodiac but in pretty different ways. Libra keeps their socialization pretty broad, having one incredibly large friend group. Gemini differs, thriving with multiple small groups. An Aquarius tends to have some smaller friend groups than Libra and Gemini, but one trait they all share is how strong the bonds they create are. I’m talking about Aquarius, which, though it’s symbolized by the Water Bearer, is in fact an air sign and not water. Stereotypically, Aquarians are pretty detached from their emotions, whereas water signs are more emotional. Aquarius is the Water Bearer but never gets their hands wet with emotions.
On the other hand, people don’t like Libras because they’re “too indecisive.” I’ve also heard people say that they don’t like Libras for the same reason people don’t like Geminis: they’re two-faced. While I think that that claim has at least some merit, I think people should also be cognizant of air signs' skill of keeping conversations in their own respective circles. This can come off as that sign complaining or gossiping, but it’s really only about trying to figure out the best possible solution to a given situation. People tend to see air signs more as “robots” or “emotionless” due to their detachedness, but really we’re just trying to foster and keep our peaceful relationships.
