Balance of Fire

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Fire.”

In Western astrology, you are a Libra.

You are sophisticated, intelligent, and graceful. Many people look up to you for advice and admire your lifestyle. You may deny your unique qualities, saying, “No, no, I’m not all that special,” but you genuinely reflect beauty throughout your life. These qualities are part of your destiny as if they are woven into your DNA.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as a Libra (or, to be more precise, your Sun sign is Libra). The characteristics of a Libra are elegance, balance, and ambition. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character for “Fire,” also known as the Chinese character “丁.”  Fire is not a powerful light in the same way the sun illuminates the whole world. Instead, fire alludes to something smaller and more intimate. It has a role in warming people in the cold, gathering people together, or serving as a signpost pointing out the path you should take.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.

Your Libra characteristics combined with your essence as a Fire sign describe you as a “Balance of Fire.” This title alludes to a mythical image. Perhaps, it reminds you of a method the gods use to weigh the sins of humanity. Or, maybe it conjures up the idea that it’s a tool used to reveal the truth inside of someone’s heart. These images show something about your destiny. However, your future is not quite as intense as these images may portray.
