Advice for Libras

Alida Cummings, News Editor

If, like me, you were born between September 23 and October 23, your astrological sign is a Libra. According to ancient astrological traditions, there are certain traits that Libras have that may help you to have success in the coming year.

According to Ganeshaspeaks, a website that offers details about different astrological signs, Libras strive for balance in life above all. They tend to be kind and gentle lovers of beauty, harmony, and peace. They are fundamentally altruistic, meaning that they wish to make everyone around them happy. They are often indecisive and can become easily overwhelmed when life falls out of balance. In addition, Libra are known to crave a loving relationship and have intense FOMO, or “fear of missing out”.

Even if you’re not one to believe in astrological signs, it’s still a fun way to pass the time or even to describe yourself. According to an article in the New York Times, astrological signs are becoming a very popular and trending internet sensation that helps young people describe themselves and make friends online.

For many Libras, 2019 looks to be an important year of decision and change, something that you’d rather not deal with. If you want to make it a better year, commit to making that big decision that you’ve been putting off. Do it soon, and reap a positive reward.

Last year, you likely spent a lot of time trying to please other people. It may have been hard for you to say “no”. In this year of major change, you will need to spend more time on yourself in order to maintain balance in your life. This will require a change of thinking, and a will to say “no”.

For Libras seeking a better relationship, this is a year for actively working at it. If you’ve wondered about asking someone out, this is the year to do it. If you feel yourself losing a friend, now is the time to reach out and work at growing closer. If you haven’t been working hard at improving a relationship, you should begin doing so. In the past, the fear of missing out has controlled you somewhat. To regain control, learn how to accept that life will not give you everything that everyone else has. If you do what fulfills you, you need not worry about missing out on life. This will also help you to dedicate time to yourself and for close friends.

Much like in 2018, your altruism is going to get you places. For 2019 to be a successful year for you, you must dedicate time for youself, but please continue to help your classmates and reach out to them. You will notice that your troubles seem smaller. You can also use your open heart to attract a new friend.

Last but not least, it will be important to finish what you start this year. Personal projects will need to be finished, even if they are not perfect. Find something meaningful to pass the time instead of watching movies.

This year, paying attention to your astrological sign may help you to open new doors and be your best self.
