I have been thinking about this for a while now. The World seems to be in utter chaos with wars, terrible crimes and cruelty and I feel that it is
not in balance.
I wonder if there is any good at all in humanity?
The World is beautiful, nature is amazing and that is really all the good that I can see. I spend time looking at the beauty of the
mountains,sunsets, flowers, butterflies, birds etc to try to shift my focus from the horrors that humans do to each other and other species.
Then that got me thinking, the Libra scales, they are tipped, so which way are they balanced?
I am starting to feel the scales are like that to illustrate that there is more bad than good, but the majority of people think (thanks to the Romans)
that they are balanced. Images of the constellation show the scales are balanced. They are not, if you look clearly at the constellation, how the
hell can they get that array into perfect balance?
The scales are not balanced and yet a lot of images about Libra portray them as being in balance. (I wonder why that is? Perhaps to deceive people
into thinking that justice prevails? or that there is some kind of balance, a higher reasoning?) The scales are definitely not in balance.
