I am a Libran. Librans are often described as diplomatic, balanced, calm.
I am of the astrological theory (yes, and I can hear some of you shout 'rot!') that some Librans are not balanced. They may search for balance but in this process they swing from one extreme to another, they flit, they adapt, they change and procrastinate in the spirit of finding the perfect balance, the equilibrium. Guess where I think I fit?
This, I believe, is why my day to day life is not one of gentle balance but one of shift and change. When I am at home, I feel I should be working. When I am working, I want to be at home. When I am knitting, I am thinking about sewing projects. When I am alone, I want to be with friends. My attention span needs, well, attention. It's not at its longest or most concentrated at the moment.
I heard (although I should have realised) that Libra is the only object in the Zodiac. Every other sign is represented in human or animal form. What does that mean? Does it mean Librans are somehow more analytical, less feeling, less emotional? Perhaps that's why we go in for the yin/yang the see-saw thing?
One of my favourite aunts has just started blogging (I will reveal a link, soon) and in her profile she talks about living her life 'deliberately', making conscious choices about what she really wants to do and not 'going with the flow'.
I have long resigned myself to being a flibbertygibbet, a gatherer, a snacker on all sorts of stuff. What I need now is a proper hearty meal, maybe three courses, not a buffet.
By the way, does anyone else think that 'Mad Men' has got a little dull, or is it me? I think it's the lack of Joan about the place.
