Libra the Scales, or Altar shows the Messiah a sthe balancer of the Scales of Justice who makes all those who love Him appear perfect.
To balance these scales for all people Libra signifies Revelation’s Rider on a Black Horse, which brings famine and death in judgment. (1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 9:14-15, 12:24; Rev. 6:5).
Ancient stories from this constellation have Libra as a lamp with Scorpio shown in some ancient drawings as trying to seize the lamp.
The lamp denotes the nature of the “seed of the woman,” being positioned just beneath the feet of Virgo. Scorpio wants the lamp for himself.
Scorpio, as we shall see, represents the “seed of the serpent.” It is the first representation of the conflict between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent.
Libra has been associated with justice throughout the centuries. It's symbol has often been used on buildings housing courts of law and justice.
The constellation, Libra, is attended by 3 sidereal sidepieces, which help to tell the story of the price of redemption.
The message given to Belshazzar, king of Babylon. In Daniel 5:27, Belshazzar failed to satisfy the righteous demands of God: “Thou art weighed in the balances and art found wanting.” Is that not also descriptive of the human race? We are all guilty before the great Judge.

How Can I Be Saved?
You’ve probably seen John 3:16 posted somewhere on a sign, written on a freeway overpass, at a concert, at a sporting event, or even read to you as a little child. This verse is a simple one. There are 20 monosyllables (single words) in the verse. The Gospel is meant to be simple for everyone!
Be sure of your Salvation. Right now, and pray this simple prayer with a sincere heart...
“Lord, forgive me for my sins. I confess that I am a sinner. Come into my heart and make me the person you created me to be. I receive your gift of pardon through Jesus dying for me on the cross to save me. – Amen”
It was once determined in a court of law that a pardon is only a pardon when it is accepted. There is a true story about a man that refused his pardon. A judge ruled that a pardon is only a pardon when it is accepted. When you prayed that prayer and accepted God’s pardon for your sins, you became a new creation in Christ.
The Bible teaches that you are saved by faith through Jesus. Grow in the Grace that was just given to you, seek God in His word (The Bible) and go out tell somebody!
