Libra - Power and Pretty

We associate a lot of Libran qualities with geniality, sweetness, and the feminine expression of the Venus lover. But the sign of Libra is incredibly complex, dual bodied, and fierce. While the Libra can be painted as meek, easily intimidated, and fearful of conflict, there are expressions of Libra that exhibit powerful mental qualities, a furious fight for justice, and great ambition. There are many world leaders, male and female who have their natal Sun in Libra. They are aggressive on the debate floor, intelligent in negotiation, and level headed in their ascension up the career ladder. Libra is ruled by Venus and exalts in Saturn. We have the humanistic judgment of Venus fusing with the disciplined and determined will of Saturn. Libras are a tour de force, and they can be absolutely unmovable and resolute.

The double lined Libra symbol indicates a sign that experiences dual states of consciousness. While we have an archetype that is focused on developing relationships and connecting others, we also have the scales of justice. This is the need to throw oneself into battle so that what is fair and right prevails. Libra is an air sign, and the intellectual capacity of the individual is one of his greatest assets. There is a tremendous verbal acuity and the mind to dominate any debate. He can view the world through multiple perspectives and rapidly absorb information and fact. So we have four critical areas of intelligence expressed through Libra, and this is a secret of the sign’s success. There is socially receptive Venus, mentally astute Air, the fire of Cardinal, and wise, formidable Saturn. Life arenas like politics and law resonate here because the individual emanates tremendous leadership skills, formidable wit on the parliament floor, and a very focused approach to success.

Many female world leaders have their natal Sun in Libra, especially pioneering ones like Margaret Thatcher and Julia Gillard. Many male shock jocks are Sun Libras. There is ferocious dialogue and the reigning in of the Mars duality’s aggression, inferno, and combativeness. Libras stand by what they believe in, and their battle scars tend to be hidden by flowers and jewellery. The individual can be too easily underestimated, and his ability to adapt to the personality required means he can fly under the radar while achieving great feats. Libras are not unequipped for the world, they hold swords of power as they tackle the cosmic balance beam.

Arguing with an SJW is like playing a sport your young brother made up.

Even though you technically win, he always makes up ridiculous reasons for why he wins, not you.

Anti-SJW: Since you keep insulting me and aren’t providing any intellectual counter-arguments, I’m pretty sure I won this argument.

SJW: But you’re a white cishite male, so it’s impossible for you to win.

Anti-SJW: For someone who supports “equality”, you really seem to despise white males.

SJW: STOP OPPRESSING ME!!!

My favorite thing about this fandom is how kind everyone is. Maybe that’s just my experience, though I hope it’s everyone else’s. Regardless of what #Team we’re on, or what 'problematic’ character we love, we always reblog posts with intelligent debate - or simple leave the post be. I’ve never once gotten hate for loving Jess, Luke, or Lorelai. I’m a part of a lot of fandoms, but Gilmore is by far one of the best in terms of respect, love, and kindness.

Democrat vs Republican

Democrat: Cares about protecting people’s rights, the planet, and bettering our nations policies on just about everything. Able to have productive and intelligent debates.

Republican: Too worried about instilling nationalism, religious indoctrination, and taking away people’s rights to realize that we are seriously the laughing stock of the world. Debates usually include name calling and throwing shade. Usually ignores science.

I know it’s long but you should watch this.

What am I enjoying most about the EU Referendum campaign?

Definitely the intelligent adult level of discussion and debate.

Yeah definitely that.

Something I thought of while I was on here today. Those women’s marches got hundreds of thousands of people, yeah? And many of them flew or drove for miles to be there.

So why can’t some of those ladies (and I’m aiming this more at white ladies bc you’re the ones who’re gonna be able to convince people and who are gonna be safe out there bc racism is still a thing - that’s what we’re fighting right?) go out to rural areas, go out to the Rust Belt cities, and canvas and organize there? It might only take a weekend - maybe even less driving/flying than the march did for some.

It would require having to hear opposing views and intelligently and kindly debate them. It would require having to try to understand women (and men) who are of a slightly different culture and have different problems and backgrounds. It would mean not bristling instantly and talking to people with problematic views as if they were savages who need to be educated.

But THAT is how lasting political change in this country is going to be achieved - not by just marching in the coastal cities. And that political change is probably not gonna look exactly like some may want it to honestly.

I believe though, that we CAN end prejudice and bigotry in “Trump Country” without turning it into mini-NYC. And if we can do that - hopefully a man like Trump will never lead our country again.
