Libra, the Balance, ruled by Venus: Manly Hall

Libra, the balance of the scales held by the angel with the blazing sword, reminds us that ours is always a problem of equilibrium.

We must alway keep the balance because the law, justice, is always in the balance.  Virtue is not on one end of the scales and Vice on the other.  Vice is at both ends, and Virtue is in the middle.

The moment man polarizes or unbalances he is unlawful; justice is in all things moderation.

So we must seek always the balance that underlies all of the contending parts.  Justic is in no sense excess or privation.

Man remains true only when he is in balance and is ruled by principle, then all other things will belance out.
