LIBRA ASCENDANT/ THULA
People born under this ascendant usually have a magnetic
personality. They have a capacity to draw
people in with their body language and have a good
ability for communication. Facial expressions
are another characteristic of Libra. They
are intelligent, restless, and good-natured with
a pleasant disposition. They want to win
people over with love and they hate violence, as they are
highly sensitive. Libra natives have a keen interest
in theatre and fine arts. Libra's are cautious,
confident, interested in learning, gentle and artistic.
Libra persons have a strong sense of harmony and
justice as this is the sign for balance. Libra's
are usually attractive people with charisma that
borders on sexuality. They love fame and
recognition and are often attracted to
circles of friends where artists and fame are found.
Ultimately, the sign Libra signifies a sense of
justice, clarity, strong will power and optimism.
For Libra ascendants, Mercury
is the functional malefic planet being
lord of the twelfth
house. Since Mercury is such a quick
moving planet, the problems or
difficulties for the Libra
ascendant are short-lived. Since Mercury
moves so quickly, it is in the person's
most effective point of
each house every ten days of the month
bringing about nervous energy and erracticness
quite often. So although Mercury's malefic impact
is short-lived, it is also recurring.
Since Libra is the mooltrikona
sign for Venus and is the ascendant
or is in the first house, then
if Venus is strong and unafflicted
for the Libra ascendant, this will enhance
many of the positive qualities that the
Libra ascendant has already, giving the person a magnetic
personality and charm while boosting
one's artistic ability. It will bring about comforts
and enjoyment in the person's life while
enhancing one's career, whether it is in
the healing arts, design or in business.
A weak and afflicted Venus
can make the Libra person depressed, stubborn, and
argumentative. There could be weak health
being lord of the ascendant and the person could be lacking
affluence as well as lacking charming manner.
The health issues affected may be diabetes,
arthritis and even venereal diseases.
A strong and well-placed
Jupiter that has Sagittarius,
its mooltrikona sign in
the third house
will give the person good initiatives that
may enhance their status in an authority
position, being in the house of communication.
Happiness with younger siblings
is evident and the person will be courageous
and ambitious. If Jupiter is weak
and afflicted there will be a
lack of happiness from younger siblings
and from children (An
indication of Jupiter). The person will lack initiative
and have communication difficulties.
A strong and well-placed
the benefic qualities that Saturn
belies for the Libra ascendant.
This planet acts as a Yokakaraka
planet owning the fourth
and the fifth house,
a kendra house and a
trine house. The mooltrikona
sign is Aquarius placed in the
fifth house. Saturn is
also exalted in the
sign of Libra. The well-placed
Saturn therefore can make the person worldly and
shrewd, giving strong intelligence,
focus and direction. They
may have only a few children, but will
be proud of them and very connected
to them. If Saturn is weak and
afflicted, then education may suffer
as well as professional career. There will
be a lack of children or difficulties with children,
lack of mental peace and possible
problems with the back area or joints.
If Mars is strong
and unafflicted, then there will be dynamic
partners in business and in marriage.
The mooltrikona sign for
Mars is Aries
which is in the seventh house.
The brothers of the individual could also
be successful and there will be a good
competitive rapport between them. The person will
have strong vitality and energy.
If Mars is weak and afflicted,
then there will be little dynamic energy
and disagreements with the spouse
and possible separation. There
could be difficulties with business
partners and troubles to younger brothers.
Since the Moon has its mooltrikona
sign Cancer in the tenth
house for Libra, then a good and unafflicted
Moon will bring about great creativity
in the Libran's career. The person can
work in the public arena
and make a great public relations person
as well as working in the healing arts
or in nursing and social work.
The person's mother will be pleasant
and caring and the person would have more
stability and a general peace of mind within
oneself. If the Moon is weak and
afflicted, then there will be changes
in profession often with lack of
mental peace and perhaps troubles to the
mother. The creativity may be within,
but perhaps unable to come out professionally.
Since the Sun has its mooltrikona
sign in Leo in the eleventh
house ruling income, elder brothers and sisters,
friends and desires, then a strong and
unafflicted Sun for the Libra ascendant
will enjoy the patronage of highly placed friends.
Income can be abundant
and there will be great activity in fulfilling one's
desires. If the Sun is weak and
afflicted, then there could deficient
funds and a general discontentment,
as desires are not fulfilled. A weak
heart and trouble to the father
could be a factor
Since Mercury rules the twelfth
house for the Libra ascendant and is a functional
malefic planet, it is best for
the chart that Mercury has very little influence
on the other planets and houses. If this is the
case and Mercury is strong
and unafflicted, then there will be less
mental strain and nervousness.
There will be more focus and less
energy loss through constant thinking, which can
be erratic and time consuming.
If Mercury is weak and afflicted,
then there will be possible mental strain
and nervous disorders leading to possible
mental illness. There can be difficulties
in the intestines and digestive
system. There can be hearing defects
and the person can suffer from vertigo and dizziness.
There can be a disturbed marital life.
If the malefic Mercury is aspecting any
natal planets, then those planets
will indeed endure losses in whatever field the afflicted
planet signifies. If the Moon
is afflicted, then there is a possibility
of mental disturbances, as the Moon indicates
our emotional mind. Fortunately, these
disruptions do not last long because of
the fast motion of planet Mercury.
