The other day, I was thinking about neutrality and value and I was explaining my thoughts to my boyfriend since we like to have philosophical discussions. I was talking about how neutrality is truly an illusion because we can’t reach it with all of our different perceptions. I was thinking about Libra when I said this because Libra is known for its neutrality, and the concept of neutrality being an illusion really goes well with my thought that Venus represents an abstract ideal, which is tied to Neptune being a higher octave of Venus.
Then my boyfriend goes, “Equality has no value.” I got intrigued and I asked him why. I am then told that if there are two objects of equal value, there really is no value because there is no impact from either side. The impact from each side is equal so therefore, nothing happens. It’s like having a tie between two people… Nothing really happens.
He proved this mathematically by showing the graph of the absolute value of 1/x because he’s a math nerd.
The graph looked like this:
Now, if you look at this graph, you are looking at two extreme ends, trying to reach a balanced middle. A balanced conclusion. But the two lines will never meet in the middle because there is no value possible to meet in the middle.
Libra is the only inanimate object in the zodiac. There is no life represented in Libra because it is an unreachable ideal that people strive to reach. Meanwhile, Aries, its sister sign, is often represented as the birth of a new baby, the birth of new life.
Libra doesn’t just represent neutrality. It represents balance, beauty, justice, love, and fairness. All of the following things that Libra represents are not tangible because it is subjective. We all have different ideas of what balance, beauty, justice, love, and fairness is. Ironically, what drives us to try to to unite to a conclusion is the arguments and conflicts we have to understand where we’re coming from. Of course, we will never really and truly understand each other due to the fact that we are all completely new beings, but the fact that conflict, something that is strongly represented in Aries, is needed to seek a better understanding of items such as balance, beauty, and other things Libra represents.
Aries needs Libra and Libra needs Aries.
