Balance of the Mountains

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are a “Mountain.”

In Western astrology, you are a Libra.

You live with an air of sophistication and intelligence. However, you are a particular person and care about aesthetics, so much so that you can’t tolerate specific environments. Living with this degree of intensity can cause others to find you unapproachable. At the same time, you look for beauty in your friends, family, and strangers. Subconsciously, you gather around people who emanate a particular presence. All in all, you move through life with an air of grace and confidence.

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 “Mountain,” also known as the Chinese character “戊.” This sign means that, like a mountain, you stand firm, not budging in the face of adversity. It is a destiny that sees the big picture and can embrace the good and the bad.

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 nature as a Mountain describe you as the “Balance of the Mountains.”
