This Libra Is One Hot Grandma!

This Libra may be the world’s hottest grandmother…

Think of Susan Sarandon (star of Bull Durham and a gazillion other movies) and the word “grandmother” doesn’t come immediately to mind. But that’s exactly what she is—not only in real life to Eva Amurri’s little girl, but also on the big screen!

Libras are romantic, intelligent, and idealistic, and Susan has those in spades. Charming on the outside, she hides a strong inner core. And, like others of this Venus-ruled sign, she’s a good listener who can make others smile and feel valued. All extremely useful qualities for a grandmother! The hardest part of parenting? “Letting them make mistakes.” The payoff? “Knowing they’re going to be fine!” Wise words to pass along to the next generation!

What Can’t This Libra Do?

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to appreciate this Libra!

Not all the stars are in Hollywood, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has done his best to introduce as many as he can to the world! Growing up, he was a big fan of Carl Sagan, and he fondly remembers when Dr. Sagan tried to recruit him to Cornell. Tyson went to Harvard instead, but he followed in Sagan’s footsteps as host of Fox’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

Like all Libras, he wears many hats. A college wrestler, rower, and dancer (winner of a national Latin ballroom competition), today he’s a research scientist, author, and collector of fine wines. With Libran good humor he’s taken the flak for downgrading Pluto from planetary status. He takes controversy in stride, “you’ve got to be so deeply in love with your subject that when curve balls are thrown, when hurdles are put in place, you’ve got the energy to overcome them.”

Who’s That (Libra) Girl?

This Libra does not disappoint…

Betty Who (aka Jessica Anne Newham) is on track to be the next pop icon. Who? Who! This Aussie’s song “Somebody Loves You” went viral as the soundtrack to a video of a gay couple getting engaged in a Salt Lake City Home Depot. The response so shocked the Libra singer/songwriter it made her cry. Even better? She sang at the guys’ wedding! Now who’s crying?

The multitalented six-foot-one, platinum-haired musician started playing cello at age four, and then taught herself to play the piano and guitar. But this is no rock ‘n roll wild child, just an incredibly talented musician.

The Most Hated Libra Celeb?

All this Libra celeb wants is peace, love, and understanding!

There’s a pattern with Libra celebs—they all seem to excel at a million things all at once! And Gwyneth Paltrow is no exception. Academy Award-winning actor, singer, food writer and TV show host, author, the face of Estée Lauder perfumes, singer, mom, and face of Goop—the only thing she hasn’t quite perfected yet is the sort of lifelong marriage that her parents, Blythe Danner and Bruce Paltrow, enjoyed.

But could anyone but a Libra have come up with “conscious uncoupling” as a way to split from a mate? That’s how Gwyneth described her separation from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. It reflects this sign’s love of peace, harmony, and fairness. With luck, it will all balance out with her new partner, Brad Falchuk.

Libra’s Secret Work Advantage

Use your exemplary people skills in a new, beneficial way…

Some people take seminars in order to learn how to get along with bosses and co-workers (and still never get it right), but not you! Your people skills are unmatched. You could sell air conditioners to polar bears in winter.

You avoid water-cooler politics like the plague. Your collection of colleagues, associates, friends, and acquaintances grows by the minute. When the job market is weak and you have to look for work, know that you’re sitting on a gold mine. Don’t be shy about name-dropping, schmoozing, and using every connection you have to reach your career goals.

Mix Business With Pleasure, Libra

Take your personal values to work to be a major success!

You react and relate to the world around you with fairness, diplomacy, and small-d democracy. Your refined aesthetic sense governs the way you live. The actual work you do matters less to you than what you can learn from the decisions you make. These values are an indisputable part of you—and they color your work and private life whether you realize it or not. If your job aligns with your value system, you likely feel fulfilled and unstressed. If not, you might want to look elsewhere.

Libra Memory Boosters

Tricks Libras can use to improve their memory…

Air sign Libra’s brain is your pride and joy. But information overload could be sapping your memory. Forget where you parked your car? Can’t remember your bicycle lock’s combination? And just what is the name of that hottie you met last week?

No, you aren’t getting old or losing your marbles. Depending on smart phones, GPS, and wikis for all that data we used to remember makes your brain lazy! But you can do something about it. Memory boosters include coffee, exercise, squishy stress balls, and omega-3s. If you can remember all that, you can strengthen your mental muscle!

Be More Touchable, Libra

Ways to make your body glow with a sexy, welcoming allure…

There’s nothing like a pair of shapely arms—the better to hold your beloved, no? You love to walk, but change it up now and then. Tone up your guns and build a bit of upper body strength by swinging kettle bells, doing some yoga, or pumping out a few old-school push-ups (no equipment necessary).

Give your triceps, biceps, and even wrists and hands a workout. Get some professional coaching if you’re a newbie, and look for inspiration—how about fellow Libra Serena Williams? Slowly increase the effort and you’ll see beautiful results in no time.

Don’t Feel Blue—Wear It, Libra!

Chase away a case of the blues by wearing this color…

When most people say they’re feeling “blue” they mean they feel sad. But for you, the color makes you happy. It brings you peace and calms your soul. If you’re feeling stressed, take some deep breaths under a cloudless blue sky or near a serene azure lake. Paint your bedroom walls robin’s egg blue to encourage restful sleep.Spruce up your wardrobe with a variety of hues from cobalt to aqua—they harmonize with practically everything. (What doesn’t go with denim?) For punch, add a flash of pink, red, or yellow and feel like a million bucks.
