HOROSCOPE

Air is your paired element and as a Libra, you have a cardinal relationship with air. Air’s influence makes you active and a self-starter. At times, it seems as if curiosity stirs inside of you like a wind as you are pushed on pursuits of knowledge. Embracing air’s qualities will help to support your social and intellectual pursuits, but be careful to avoid the negative qualities of still air, which include an unemotional attitude.
