Balance of the Sea

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are an “Ocean.”

In Western astrology, you are a Libra.

You are kind, fair, intelligent, and an all-around well-liked person. People find it easy to approach you, and you make everyone you meet feel comfortable and welcomed. As people flock to you, you often find yourself at the center of the group. Whether in person or on social media, your presence is well known and greatly appreciated. Indeed, your amiable qualities are endless.

So often, you attempt to deny such praises saying, “No, no! I’m not all that!” But, no matter how much you refuse to accept it, your radiance shines inside and out wherever you go. As you move through life, your unlimited potential will awaken at various times. However, it’s up to you to embrace your many abilities. Otherwise, you can go through life without living up to your full potential.

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 “Ocean,” also known as the Chinese character “壬.” This sign suggests flexibility. Like the water of the ocean, you can adapt to any container or environment. The sign of Ocean also reveals that you are good at dealing with people and information and are sensitive to trends.

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 an Ocean describe you as the “Balance of the Sea.” Imagine a large scale sitting in the depths of the ocean. A variety of fish swim around it. The balance seems to control its surrounding environment. It’s a mysterious tool and, in a way, alludes to an instrument that is an anchor for the center of life.
