Balance of the Earth

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

In Western astrology, you are a Libra.

You enjoy beauty, but not in the sense of shimmer and shine. Instead, you find beauty in the balance and order of life. For example, from your home to your workplace, you feel most relaxed in spaces that are clean and tidy. In your personal life, you rarely choose to stay up late or oversleep in the morning. In the past, people also found beauty, mystery, and truth through order. Fascination with rhythms and patterns led people to study the cycles of the stars, sun, moon, and planets. Eventually, studying these phenomena gave birth to fortune-telling.

Your interest in beauty also comes out in your love for clarity. You prefer to see far into the distance without any fog or obstacle blocking your view. Practically, this desire plays out in you developing a minimalist mindset. In other words, you try not to accumulate too many things. Instead, you own what is needed and discard what is unnecessary. This practice gives you a sense of order and clarity in your home and mind.

Additionally, you treat relationships with a similar approach. You have sharpened emotional clarity and utilize this to keep conversations coherent. You dislike when communication is sloppy or ambiguous, especially in the workplace.

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 “Earth,” also known as the Chinese character “己.” This sign is like a vast field with a mild climate. Farmers work the ground, and the soft soil produces a wealth of crops. This image reveals your mission to create and nurture beauty.

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 characteristics of Libra combined with your nature as Earth describe you as the “Balance of the Earth.”
