The Libra Test

beautiful bathroom JapanAre you truly a Libran?

You should be able to tell by the calibre of your response to this image.

A true Libra is spiritually moved and deeply inspired by such images, revowing his/her intention to more mindfully make over their bathroom into a shrine-like sanctuary.

Virgo likes anything to do with cleanliness, yes, but would immediately be turned off or even disturbed by the towels left so casually flung over the bath – surely the bottoms of them are actually IN the water, apparent lack of a shower and possibility of pollen or dirt emitting from the tree feature.

NO NO NO. I need a rectangle or square giant turkish or roman style bath that has a nice TV and a nice old mirror. where the hell is the towel rail? need an authentic walk in monsoon power shower with either glass door or cave style shower…I like the tree as long as there are no bugs. The tree is taking up the curved area which is way too small..pfffft..What Libra Sun Mars in Leo could feel special without such comforts?

My mum is sooo Libran & the first room she got redone in our house was the bathroom. It’s all relaxing & beige & glass-shower & spiritual, just like the pic.
I have NOTHING in Libra & think it looks like lovely scenery for a power seduction…

Shower MUST be on the other side of the wall. As are more power points mirrors and a nice bench to put stuff on.

I just noticed the lack of art. I know its a bathroom and designed to be a piece of art, but what about a beautiful painting or a photograph on the wall? Then I could bear to have a bath. I am a aesthetic Taurus after all.

Autumn leaves are one of my favourite things. I have them hanging in dark wood frames on my walls. Hence, immediately the jaw dropped. But this bathroom would not do for me and my 4 planets in Virgo first house at all – it’s not FUNCTIONAL. Where does the coffee cup / wine glass / ash tray sit beside the bath?? Where does one put down the book they’re reading in order to save it from getting wet while you dip?? Where’s the freakin shower when my Capricorn Sun needs to be at a meeting in 10 minutes after conducting… Read more »

… just thinking, perhaps the autumn leaf fetish does stem (pardon pun) from my one Libra quality – PLUTO – also in the first house… oh yes boys… I have a VERY BIG first house… 😉

Lexicorn I think it needs wall niches. For my money different walls…all this polished concrete is so gulag to me. I’d love a room big enough that I could have a shower without glass. I hate cleaning glass. It’s mainly a time thing, it takes ages to get it right…so I’d rather do without. There needs to be preferably wall niches for hair products. I bump myself on shelving when in a hurry. Actually the more I look at this pic, where are the bloody powerpoints for the hair straightner, and the hairdryer ? Yes there should also be some… Read more »

Libran Moon:
Ok for an hotel room stay but not a personal choice if designed one for myself.
Preference is for bathrooms with view, a big big view, or able to look at sky,
but you didn’t ask me.
Quite suitable for warehouse living divisions but looks rather industrial.

Libra NN with Pallas Athena and Juno conjunct opp Sun…

Do hope that is a bathmat draped over the side as Venie in Tau-Tau would not like wet feet on cold floor. Some lushy slippers standing by afterwards would be heaven sent and a must.

Do love the nature thing totally but would love a hand held sprayer in the tub and jet bubbles. And, a bird in the tree to sing to me.

Is that too much to ask?

Autumn would be a nightmare — raking leaves off the bathroom floor. Still, the tree is the most attractive thing among the insipid white, brown and grey. I wish modern decor would move on. Vive les couleurs!!

Who has time to take a bath anyway? Plus a waste of how many litres of water? – there’s a drought where i live. I think the no-shower in lieu of bath is pointless and that the tree will collect dust and suffocate in 9 out of 10 homes (virgo rising).

It looks like a Hyatt Coolum spa room so my first thought when i saw it was ‘i prob can’t afford it’.

I’m also Libra Sun and Libra Rising and thought this bathroom was really peaceful and lovely. I didn’t notice the towel or the lack of shower until I read about it. I did notice the odd angles though.

Libra Sun, Libra Rising and I LOVE this bathroom, so cool, so serene but enough angles to stop it being too clinical. As for the tree, it looks like a Japanese maple, beatuiful, beautiful, and I love its reflection in the mirror. The towel breathes humanity into the scene, it’s not too perfect. And as I toddle off to my bathroom with just a shower, I heave a deep sigh of envy.

I agree with Charles. Virgos are earth signs and unless unhappy shouldn’t be bothered about earthy stuff eminating from the tree and the towel thing is just a dumb thing to do (yes the ends probably are wet but whatever, it doesn’t offend the soul).
The angles are a definite problem…… but I have a Virgo sun and Libran moon, so is the balance problem Libran or Virgo?
I am surprised more Virgos don’t stand up for their earthy natures!

um I know the image is c/ of a high end bathware co – but not for me!!

the room’s simply out of wack & the angled bath puts me off as much as the dead-look tree….. am very early libra & perhaps the pic triggers a virgo response re towel & where is shower….?

My first impression was that the mirror’s reflection is totally wrong! How could it possibly be reflecting the tree from there? Photoshop grrr. I have a leo moon so probably explains why I looked at the mirror before the tub. Have always hated baths… too much sitting around doing nothing. This room doesn’t calm me at all. I totally fail the libra test.

As as Libra, I think that is a gorgeous bathroom and would love to own it but my Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo hates that the damn towel is left behind so sloppily in the tub and that the whole room seems to be crooked and very open. I like a little more privacy.

The beautiful tree ALMOST makes up for it, though. I love trees 🙂

My 1st house moon in libra with late degree virgo rising had one instantaneous response to the bathroom photo: where is the bath mat or rug to keep those tootsies off the cold floor as well as to add a splash of color and warmth to an otherwise austere look…?

what is the ridiculous angle the bathtub is making to the wall? not only disconcerting to look at but when laying in the tub i don’t think i’d be able to relax one bit!

everything else is just lovely, but i agree that the towel would surely be in the water, and that there must be a shower hidden around the corner for use (the bath is for show) as i don’t know many virgos who enjoy being the stock in people soup.

yeah this is what first drew my eye too. The off angle of the bath placement. I really like the idea of a freestanding bath that doesn’t collect dust under it. I like the idea of a clawfoot bath, but am not inclined to clean under it daily…and without a high level of care the relax factor would nullify . Admiittedly minions could solve this, but are out of reach of my fiscal reality. Also the walls (while probably great for privacy) feel like they are looming a little too much for my liking. The concrete bothers me a bit.… Read more »

Virgo wouldn’t care about any of those things. There is something bigger to distract from that. The room is asymmetric and has a curved wall, that would immediately put the Virgo off balance, she would prefer straight lines and square corners.

Can you tell I lived with Virgo women for several years?

I can’t decide if it is more Virgo or Libra to be frustrated by the one branch on the near side of the divide. Lopsided. Makes me anxious. I’d also like a nice rug/bathmat for the floor. Too cold. Otherwise we’re cool.

It’s not the asymetry as such but the bottleneck, there’s something claustro about it . I’d like to see an opening out toward the tree. Have libra in venus and two baths at home. One in a very open asymetrical bathroom but my ultimate is actually outside in the garden under the stars! Here the virgo is appeased by the fact one does not need to worry about…bathmats, grout mould, shampoo scuz on the floor, towels (hang from tree while bathing then take away),everything outside is kind of clean. IMO all tropical and sub tropical bathrooms should be outdoorsish ala… Read more »

Well, speaking as a Taurus and as such, a representative of the Legions of Earth, I regret to inform you that outside in the garden is not clean at all, in fact, it’s filthy. There is dirt everywhere.

LOVE the bathroom – especially the tree – although would prefer to see the leaves spring green or the tree in blossom perhaps… Am with Odette.. old fashioned bathrooms with claw foot bathtubs are where I’d like to be – can I have the old fashioned and the tree?

Guess my three Virgo planets are more dominant than I thought – that hanging towel really bothers me. Also, the tree is the color of dried blood – ick. I don’t like the modern look – a really soothing bathroom should have an old-fashioned tub with feet, pre-war bathroom fixtures and big curvy hooks for towels, bathrobes, etc. If you’re going to go zen about it, though, at least have a green tree please. And softer corners on the cabinets. I do like all the natural light, the hugeness of the tub, and the hand carved look of the wood… Read more »

(Is it also my moon in Aries that makes me panic at the idea of being forced to take slow baths whether I want to or not?)

I concur – I have Libra Sun with four Virgo planets and the towel thing bothered me too – It’s a bathroom that I would enjoy in a swish hotel B & B, but my bathroom would have cleaner lines and probably old fashioned fittings (Cancer rising)

Oh the tree maketh the room – I must be a true Libra 😉 Libra does not worry about pollen as one would have a house-maid to deal with such things.
It reminds me of the tree installation I saw at the Asia Pacific Triennial here in Brisbane, sigh, so beautiful.
