In this blog series, you'll learn about the 12 western signs and receive an exclusive look at the 12 Zodiac Keepers featured in C. M. Ramsburg's YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN.
“I achieve balance in body, mind, and spirit.”
Libra is the most fair-minded and just Sun Sign in the Zodiac. Libras value balance and equality, always considering both sides of an argument before passing judgment. They are the diplomats of the Zodiac, encouraging others to cooperate and compromise. Libras are often moderates who avoid conflict to make room for peace whenever possible. However, this uncanny ability to consider multiple sides of a given situation causes Libras to be very indecisive by nature. It is difficult for a Libra to choose a solid stance and stick by it. Libras are also known to carry grudges, avoid conflict, and wallow in self-pity. There is nothing that Libras detest more than violence and injustice. Their fair and just personalities make Libras ideal for diplomacy and the judicial system.
What to Know about Libra
Libra is an Air Sign, like Gemini and Aquarius. Air is a masculine element that combines the Zodiac qualities of hot and wet. The free nature of Air allows Libras to wander in search of personal truth and the liberation of their souls. Libras are artistic and have the creative freedom to follow their hearts. The totem of Libra is the Scales, relating to the Greek Goddess of Justice. The origin of Libra, translating to "the weighing scales" in Latin, further solidifies this Sun Sign as the ultimate symbol of divine justice.
Libra's ruling planet is Venus, associating the sign with beauty and love. Venus reinforces a Libra's creative expression and desire to find the beauty in everything. Venus aids Libra in its pursuit of balance and achieving harmony in their lives. The influence of Venus also encourages Libras to find love and dislike being alone.
Vincenzo Seranto, Keeper of Libra
“I can feel the balance of power shifting rapidly, unable to declare a winner.”
Vincenzo Seranto is the 16-year-old Keeper of Libra in my YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN. Vinny is an Italian with gray eyes and sleek black hair. He is a devout Roman Catholic growing up on the outskirts of Rome. He is extremely artistic, admiring the artwork of Michelangelo every time he wanders into Vatican City. Vincenzo struggles to validate his Catholic beliefs after discovering he's a Zodiac Keeper. He searches for the truth within both belief systems. Vincenzo is soft-natured and diplomatic, always considering both sides of any given situation. As the Scales, he finds perfect harmony between chaos and peace. Vincenzo operates as the divine judge, jury, and executioner for the Zodiac. He is both the darkness and the light.
