Thanks to Facebook, we get a daily reminder of our friends’ upcoming birthdays.  When I glanced at the list late last week I realized I have quite a few friends in the communications industries whose birthdays fall under the Libra astrological sign (including three of us here at HMA). I wonder what it is about the astrological sign for Libra (September 23 - October 22) that attracts us to this profession.

There are lots of definitions; I found this link to have some relevant thoughts:

  • Libras are first and foremost focused on others and how they relate to them.
  • Libras are good when paired up….they epitomize balance, harmony and a sense of fair play…they are true team players at work.
  • Libras are objective…are keen strategists, organizing groups with poise and getting the job done.
  • Libras always have the right thing to say and know how to make others feel comfortable.
  • Libras at play may not be as energized as at work…that's why exercise for Libras needs to have a social component to it, such as that found at a gym.
  • The great strength of the Libra-born is their quest for fairness, peace and harmony.

These traits certainly describe the Libras that I know.  I wonder if other industries line-up the same way?

Happy Birthday my fellow Libras!

  1. As a fellow Libra I’ve often wondered why there are an inordinate amount of Libra PR pros myself. Thanks for the ideas that explain why. Happy birthday Abbie, Scott and others. Libras rule!

    Hey from Ireland Abbie, I too am a Libra and can really identify with some of the traits you mentioned. I’ve always been proud to share a birthday with John Lennon (9 Oct) too!
