Sun in Leo
Sign of Libra
Libra, the Balance, or Scales, symbolizes measurement and
balance in general as well as justice (Job 31:6) and commerce (Rev 6:5).
It symbolizes Christ, our justification, who satisfied the perfect Justice
of God by being judged for the sins of the world (Rom 5:8-9). Since
the balance was used for weighing money, it became the symbol of business
(Rev 6:5). Libra was symbolized by the Tribe of Dan (Gen 49:17).
An accurate balance with accurate weights was a symbol of
justice. The Lord has perfect Justice based upon His absolute Righteousness.
The scales of divine Justice are accurately calibrated. Divine Judgment
is without partiality (Deut 10:17; Acts 10:34; Rom 2:11; Gal 2:6; Eph 6:9).
God is the final Judge (2 Tim 4:1; Heb 4:12; 10:30; 12:23; Jas 4:12).
God's perfect Justice will not tolerate injustice (Isa
30:18, 61:8). The sin of man demanded God's Judgment (Gen 2:17; Rom
5:16-18; 6:23; 1 Cor 15:22a; Jas 1:15). Jesus Christ suffered the
Judgment of God on behalf of mankind for the sins of the world (Rom 4:25;
8:3; 2 Cor 5:21; Gal 3:13; Heb 9:26, 28; 1 Jn 2:2). Believers are
justified through the work of Christ on the Cross.
There will be Justice in the Resurrection when every believer
will render an account to the Lord (Rom 2:16; 14:10, 12; 1 Cor 4:5; 2 Cor
5:10; 1 Pet 4:5). Jesus Christ administers perfect Justice from the
Throne of God (Psa 33:5; 89:14; 97:2; Isa 33:5; Acts 10:42; Heb 8:1; 12:2).
He will rule in the Millennium with Justice (Isa 28:17; 42:1-4; 61:8; Jer
33:15) as with a rod of iron (Psa 2:9; Rev 2:27; 12:5; 19:15).
Satan and fallen angels have to be judged for rebelling
against God (Matt 25:41; Rev 20:10). Satan tried to usurp the authority
of God and rule in the Lord's place on the Throne of God (Isa 14:14).
For his sin, he was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to the Lake of Fire.
God is fair to unbelievers in this life. He is not
willing for any of them to perish, but if they die without accepting Christ,
they will have to be judged. They will be judged at the Great White
Throne for their works, which do not measure up to the Righteousness of
God (Jn 3:18; Acts 17:31; Heb 9:27; 1 Pet 4:5; Rev 20:14-15; 21:8).
Their sins will not be mentioned, since they were judged on the Cross.
Nations which try to destroy Israel must be judged (Joel
3:2, 11-12; Zeph 3:8; Zech 14:2-3; Rev 16:14). And governments are
ministers of justice (Prov 29:4; Rom 13:4).
The scales of Libra symbolize the economy, commerce, and
business (Rev 6:5-6). The balance, as a measuring or weighing device,
was also called a pair of scales.
Libra also symbolizes measuring devices other than balances
and scales. These devices include:
The measurements of Libra are symbolized by all manner of
mathematical calculation, counting, weights, and measures, including time
(Isa 40:12). The balance of Libra symbolizes balance and control
of all manner of competing forces, such as walking upright and not falling;
dancing; heat and cold, ebb and flow, rise and fall, wet and dry, masculine
and feminine, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, and music.
A measuring line for marking off a possession in land (Isa
28:17; 34:17; Jer 31:39; Lam 2:8; Ezek 47:3; Zech 1:16)
A level (for horizontal accuracy) (Isa 28:17)
A plumb line (Amos 7:7-8) and plummet (Isa 34:11).
Libra includes rapport and harmony. The balance of
Spiritual Rapport is described by the Hebrew verb, palas, meaning
to make even; make level, smooth, of a path (Pr 4:26; 5:6, 21; Is 26:7;
Psa 78:50). Harmonious rapport is love, unity, and lack of friction
between two people. There is no harmony (Greek, sumfwvnhsi",
(sumphonesis)) between Christ and Belial (1 Cor 6:15). Spiritual
Rapport with God must precede harmonious rapport with people. The
concept of balance and harmony is key to analyzing an astrology chart.
