When the Libra is Not so Balanced....

Libra Traits: The Balanced Ones, the Libra are tactful, fair and charming to the core. They are attractive people, and their calm, easy-going demeanor is sure to attract a lot of attention from the others. Often balanced in their approach to others and the life situations, the Libra are diplomatic and amiable, and find it difficult to say no to anyone. They are also prone to indecision and may also be alleged as insincere and artful. Overall, they may be selfish sometimes, may even be detached, but are rarely back-stabbers. More traits here!

It feels good to be called "The Balanced Ones". Here lately I have not been so balanced. Why? Because I have not been able to really have the time of reflection that I normally have ( well, part of the reason). I am a true Libra which means I am selfish to some degree (a high degree). I NEED my me time. I need my reflection time. I need to think and regroup. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had that. 

Saturday, however, I was able to. I was able to spend the morning thinking and planning and plotting my next move. I was able to clean and talk to myself (AKA, dance in the middle of the living room). I was also able to hang with some pretty down to earth ladies that I haven't laid eyes on in a minute. We went to the art festival and I only took two pictures and the ladies I was with didn't take any. Do you know how good that feels?! Why does that feel good you ask? Because I didn't have to stop or pose or take pictures for someone or myself. I was able to soak in the moment. I was able to laugh and be silly without posing. I was able to enjoy my friends and not worry about my shiny face. Memories are not tied to pictures. Pictures are tied to memories...

Am I back to the balanced Libra that I know and love? Not quite but I think a spa day and a hair appointment will fix that quick, fast, and in a hurry! I know, so selfish lol. Next week we will tackle the "Detached" Libra. Yes, I can be very detached at times. Until next time.....
