Believe in yourself

Life is not fair, darling Sun in Libra, so you must first be honest to yourself, as you can have a perfectionist streak, and life will never be ideal.  And neither will the people you meet; you have to become responsible for setting your own boundaries and managing what you expect from others.

Giving can be good without receiving; often, what you expect others to provide you with, especially unconditional love and acceptance, must be given to you by you first, as you will never be able to receive it anyway.

Natal sun Libras can be highly sociable people. You can initiate projects quickly but often find it hard to finish; this is the same for romantic liaisons, and you love to start something, but at times can hate to end relationships.

Face conflict
Why is Sun debilitated in Libra?

You can be highly intellectual and more strategic than people give you credit for; you are innocent, not like Aries, Virgos or Pisces can have.

Yours is more of a wanting to always do the right thing, regardless of how you really feel, sort of, measured out purity.

You simply can dislike conflict and do all you can to avoid it, including white lies and doing a disappearing act. To avoid arguments, people can tell you secrets that they do not tell others due to your apparent non-judgmental nature.

But in fact, Sun in Libra, it is not that you do not like trouble; it just that you like to remain sociable and have harmony in your day to day life; you want to come across as peace-loving. However, you and I both know Sun in Libra; your shadow loves a bit of poo stirring and causing mischief.

And as you don’t like arguments, and can be pretty slick with your manner and words. You often talk yourself out of any rabble-rousing you have caused; however, your behaviour often leads you in hot water and causes some people to become suspicious of you. Seeing through your I am nice and all things sugar and spice act.

You try and are all things to all people while being nothing to yourself, changing from one social mask to the next; this can cause insecurity, as you are accused of being dishonest.

You cannot please all the people all the time; you must find, establish and stick to your boundaries.

But sometimes, you can shock yourself and others. With your periods of deep spiritual and humanitarian insight and actions, in these moments, you come across as quite holier than thou, but it a charming way and an excellent shoulder to cry on.

Seek balance
Why is the sun weak in Libra?

Sun in Libras like balance in their lives at all cost but are prone to the odd tall-tale, if you really want truth in your life, find the truth within yourself and express it.

Your need for peace is an enormous strength, we need you, natal  sun in Libra, to keep social order and deliver justice, but your actions can sometimes land you hidden enemies.

Use your Potential


Because people can see through your phoniness, so do all your best to know the truth; it doesn’t always have to cause conflict if you deliver it with tact, which you have plenty of.

Develop your capacity to withstand conflict, as it will always arise in life, and once you accept yourself, you won’t care who likes you and who doesn’t; you be working from a place of integrity and justice.

Sun in Libras must also watch out for talking, thinking and seeing the world in an all or nothing way, seeing things as either right or wrong, life has grey areas, and you must become comfortable with them to reach your highest potential.

Which is a champion of the underdog, and seeking justice at all cost, even at the cost of people not liking you, you don’t need those types of people in your life anyway; those who want you to please and pander to them are not really your friends or allies.

Venus infuses you with the ability to see the beauty and harmony in life; you can have good attention to deal with, appreciate nature, artwork, and good music, as well as be quite creative yourself.

You can be a good house, lover and friend, and business partner as you think in terms of what’s best for the other parties initially, but to gain the peace you want, you must also think of what’s best for you too.

Learn to live in the moment, do all you can to work through your inner tensions and stress, accept yourself; this is how you get others to accept you, natal Sun in Libra. Accept yourself first.
