This month we are celebrating the birthday of our good friend Number Nine also known as Jasper! This makes his zodiac sign the Libra and his birthstone rose quartz.

Libra is represented by the symbol of the scales reflecting Librans need for balance in all things. 

Librans high value of balance means they are always working to create harmony, peace, and justice in the world.

This does not mean they are always working for the greater good, however. It does mean that they dislike conflict and will develop and use any skills needed to keep the peace, keep everyone happy, and ensure justice as according to them.

These skills often include their charm, intelligence, frankness, and powers of persuasion.

 Librans often find that the key to finding this balance they crave is in fostering positive relationships with those closest to them. 

Librans are very indecisive as they consider many different opinions and many different perspectives before making their final choice. They consider all consequences as they would rather not make a decision than disturb the delicate balance of peace.

When conflict eventually does arise Librans are one of the the most talented at resolving it. They rely on their charm and wit to diffuse the situation and prefer to just fix the problem themselves.

 Rose quartz is a crystal that symbolizes unconditional love. Love for oneself and love for others. Rose quartz could be worn to boost self confidence and encourage stability in relationships.

We think this all sounds just like Number Nine!

Is your birthday in October or do you just like the color pink?
