"Libra" by Mikalojus Ciurlionis
"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function."
--F. Scott Fitzgerald, novelist and Libra
Many modern Pagans prefer to pick names based on astrological signs. Yes, I know I just finished doing a series of posts very similar to this on the old blog, but this time I'm not limiting myself to thirteen names. Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names by K. M. Sheard is an excellent resource for finding names to go with specific astrological signs, so if you want even more options than the ones I list here go find that book.
Today, the sun enters Libra (roughly September 22 to October 22). Libra's symbol is the scale. Traditionally scales are a symbol of justice, laws, and civilization. This gives some insight into the character of Libras. Libras are generally thought to be very sociable and peace-loving. They can be very idealistic and romantic. This is an air sign, so they are very good at communication. Libras strive for balance and will try to be everything to everyone. Unfortunately, this is how Libras can get a reputation for lying. They feel justified in not telling the truth so long as it doesn't rock the boat. Some people can be annoyed by their lack of directness and apparent unwillingness to stand for any one side.
Okay, this one is a little difficult in terms of rounding up names, but I'll do my best.
Atalanta ("equal in weight")
Keanu ("cool breeze")
Green, Pink, and Purple names:
Llinos ("green finch")
Evander ("good man")
Miran ("peace" or "world")
Dragomir ("precious and peaceful")
Shanti ("quiet," "peace," "tranquility")
Eulalie ("well spoken")
Zola ("quiet," "tranquil")
