For every Libra, there’s an Aries in the closet.
~ Bil Tierney, Lecture
And vice versa.
We know that every sign contains bits and pieces of its opposite, but Bil’s phrasing was spot on. Perhaps the Full Moon is when the closet door is opened wide and that hidden Libra rushes out. The rest of the time the door is shut tight ~ no light in that dark little room.
We could say that about all opposing signs.
IMO, the Aries/Libra axis is one of the most interesting in the zodiac. Everything can be in order or completely upside down.
Take Aries and Libra rising, for example. Aries rising has Libra on 7th house. Are they looking for a partner who needs a partner, or is Aries more of a partner than we think? You know the type ~ all ablaze on the outside, but a real teddy-bear underneath.
The Libra rising chart is completely topsy-turvy, 100% upside down. Is Libra rising looking for a partner who is independent, active, and otherwise Arian? Or is Libra Rising too independent, active, and otherwise Arian as a partner? You know this type, too ~ charming and amenable on the outside, but rather disagreeable and selfish when you get them alone.
Aries and Libra rising could work either way, of course, or another way altogether. None of us were made with a cookie cutter.
How is Libra Hidden in Your Chart?
Full Moons are the best time of year to take a good close look at the polarities in our charts. Full Moon in Libra is the best time to take notice of the Aries/Libra polarities in the spring. The Full Moon in Aries in the autumn is another chance.
Since everything is said to come to light during the Full Moon, our closeted Libra is likely to show up. It’s a naturally good time to see what kind of Libra we’re brandishing in our own chart.
