You do not mind getting involved with complex or contentious issues, as you are good at passing these on with charm and consideration. This combination wins people to your way of thinking, which means you are sometimes called on to resolve differences and to mediate between differing viewpoints. People look to you to bring a balanced view into a discussion or dispute. You have the ability to stand back and assess a situation at arms length. Libra Tattoo Designs The planet Venus rules Libra, which means the soft feminine side is dominant. The Zodiac sign is set of scales, representing your evenhanded temperament. Libra tattoos can be colourful and decorative, depicting your soft sensitive side. The image of the scales can be drawn with colourful backgrounds or with objects worked with them. Sometimes the scales are depicted being held by a figure, as in the Justice figure, and the figure itself can be an expression of your personality. The Libra symbol is the setting sun, which is also an equals sign. This lends itself to forming part of an image that includes the sun or the sun's rays. As Venus is the planet of love, hearts are often drawn as part of the design. Some tattoos include all three - the heart, the scales and the setting sun. As you can see there are a number of Libra tattoo ideas you can use for your design. Libra Celtic Tattoo Ideas Libra is the only inanimate sign in the Zodiac. While Celtic designs often include the image of animals interwoven in the knotwork, the heart and setting sun work very well.

They expressed their connection to the universe, eternity and the life/death cycle by the never-ending knotwork in their artwork.
