Libra Or Scorpio?

 

Backyard Bill

Adam Wallace    New York

Where did you grow up?
America: New Jersey (born), Indiana, Nebraska, Michigan, Oregon, Idaho, Ohio (finished high school) and after that I just kept on going and going and going…

Where did you live?
South Williamsburg.

What is your personal soundtrack at the moment?
Whatever is floating thru the air.

Your star sign?
On the cusp (libra/scorpio).

Who is your style icon?
Depends on the the location, inspiration is everywhere.

What do you do or what would you like to do when you grow up?
I am a lover of life and hope to continue doing so…

Backyard Bill is a bit like the The Selby but he’s less about interiors, more on the mood. I.m.o. And he always asks his stylish peeps their Sun Sign!

What concerns me here, re Mr Wallace, is that there IS, of course, no such thing as being “on the cusp.”  It’s a very last century thing to say. Verging on naff. So maybe he is being ironic? You are one or the other as the Sun would have been in either Libra or in Scorpio when he was born.

So is he a Libra throwing in the Scorpio to sex up his astrological image?

Not sure what time he was born?

An indecisive Libran type?

A Scorpio in denial?

I’m thinking Libra – if they could possibly be an elf in Lord of the Rings, you suspect Libra, always. But he’s got cruel Scorp mouth…

Someone please settle this?   The Moon in Taurus is always really good for banqueting and poring over pics of beautiful people, for research. For one’s Art.

I’m a Libra Scorpio cusp, w/ Scorpio rising conjunct mercury, venus, and pluto… and I have to say, I resent being “just a Libra” by the sun-obsessed.

To answer your original question Mystic, I’d go with the sexing-up-the-sun-sign scenario. But the others seem viable, too, so I’m not sure (oops – Libra!)

And I don’t just mean re Scorps. Feel sorry for all the neg vibes that poor fella is copping. Jaysus, read back over all this tripe & think again.

my only experience with the cusp people here is the libran scorpio frenemy. An equal distribution of planets across Libra and Scorp, stellium in each. Sun in very early scorp. Essentially a thick layer of libran icing over an often jealous and manipulative scorp cake. also scorp loyalty but too much of one overshadowed the good things. the scorp side only appeared / manifested / took hold when the frenemy felt threatened in some way, even though this was almost always in their head. Or something that could be dealt with much more pleasantly in another way. Maybe the jealousy… Read more »

how bout Libra w/ Scorpio rising? or vice versa…

The Pisces used to wear a striped shirt similar to this model’s pixes. He basically had nothing in Libra except it was intercepted in 7th with Ceres. Think the stripes (sort of sailor stuff) was indeed his Pisces but, had Venus in Aqua opposite Leo Mars-Moon so a bit of a zanier side. If this is a Scorp tho, he’s just wearing what he was told to wear. Spoze even a Scorp can withstand that for a hefty payday? He’s probably a Libran tho. Hell I don’t know. Speaking of stripes, anyone heard the White Stripes broke up? They did!… Read more »

Scorpio with libra leanings. Face looks too masculine and not sweet enough to be Libra esp the brows. Also something about the hair. I had to google more pics of him to decide. But he seems more Scorp and his wishy-washy answers want people to think he’s Libra but he’s just being private. Plus that way, people will underestimate him.

IF he were a scorpio he would not say cusp. only Libra cusp people say they are Scorpio cusps. He probably has a couple of Scorpio planets and is therefore confused.

Also: What is your personal soundtrack at the moment?
Whatever is floating thru the air.

Hello. Libra

well look I am a bit floaty but I had no idea he knew

Totally agree. Im a Scorp and I definitely don’t like everything or anything that’s floating in the air. There’s an awful a lot of shit floating about. I’m very definite about what I like and dislike.

a libra playing bad ass.

his limbs seem to be just hanging off him. he looks like an accessory to the surroundings.
can we picture him coming out of the ocean
a mirror on hand?
i always wonder where their core strength lays, in their beauty???

Pegasus

What’s all this about MEN & Marriage??????
He looks very AmerIndian which is a plus but a bit creepy
& the Liban men, not women, i have known have had some
strange tendancies. Dislike the way you have to wait whilst THEY
get ready…will i wear this or that, does this look better than that, or
will i choose the other, O what jacket? Then they go on about which
pair of sox. FFS!
That look he’s just ‘thrown together’ would have taken hours to plan.

Yes he is quite attractive. But the photos in the garden are nicer that the Ford Models ones… he looks too mean there. Nice cheekbones, but he seems a bit surly and up himself.

I have my moon in Taurus. Maybe that’s why I am never attracted to men who aren’t (at least slightly) beautiful, despite their sterling qualities. Hmmm, that explains the attraction to gay men, and arty Robert Smith types that has made my love life so difficult.

Herby

That’s so funny Gemyogi. My wife is a Toro and she loves ‘pretty’ men. Or at least that’s what she calls them.

Yes!! unfortunately they are often gay or just too wimpy for me (I have Aries rising as well!) I was always falling in love with fragile, intense, beautiful boys as a young woman!

This dude is SO Scorp, he’s oozing it, I’m one I can see it a mile off. Find it kind of gross in the opposite sex tbh, Scorpios like a bit of mystery (as we all know) and we can just psych 101 our own kind in two mins flat which = boring.

Also he sounds like an jerk.

T

Yeah, I think most Scorpios are immune to each other. I’ve never been attracted to a Scorpio guy.

That is so funny and true. Being a Scorpio, the last thing I want is a Spy vs. Spy thing going on. I actually find them creepy.

T

Haha, I was talking about sun sign compatibility with a friend awhile ago, and she asked me why I didn’t go for Scorp guys, and I actually said “I don’t want a relationship that would turn my life into a perpetual episode of Spy vs. Spy!” 😀

He looks far better with short hair I think. The eyes look penetrating enough to be a Scorp. I didn’t like those other pics of him, but I like him better now. He’s vegan and is getting married to another vegan model at an animal shelter in upstate NY. How cool is that?!

Have to disagree – I am all for being vegan. I am so against how pretentious all that sounds. “Oooh, honey, let’s get married in an animal shelter. We’ll buy all the animals and guests will just HAVE to take one home…. because how could they not, seeing as it’s OUR wedding and it IS in an animal shelter!?!” God, and I worked in an animal shelter. Seriously. Last place I would want to have a wedding…. mangey animals; sick, beaten, mistreated animals. Rejcted animals. If they were unlucky enough they would be wed on the day they put the… Read more »

I think that it would be much cooler if they spent their honeymoon working for an animal shelter. Or channeling all that time off work into animal rights advocacy. Not slap up one big day with “I’m so cool, look at what I chose to do for my wedding” bs.

If it was his idea….. REEEEEEKS OF LIBRA! I have two Libra friends and this is the kind of pyscho-bats idea that they would come up with spur of the moment, followed with “wouldn’t that be cool?” Signalling MASSIVE eye roll for moi!

I’ll have to disagree with you both. True, he’s a model and that alone could make him superficial and pretentious, but giving him the benefit of the doubt…being a model who refuses to wear fur, wool and leather would severely restrict his ability to work with a lot of designers. Anyone who is that committed to their principles I don’t think would go to the trouble of having their wedding at a animal shelter just as a publicity stunt. There’s nothing that says they’d be buying up all the animals or giving them away as wedding favors. That’s kind of… Read more »

Oh I totally applaud anyone who sticks to their principles, especially in fashion and obviously I think it’s great if the animals benefit from it in some way. People who work in shelters are amazing, really.

I’m a horrid cynic though, trendy looking, Willamsburg model getting married in one kind of screams contrived in some way to me and also kind of odd BUT I want to get married in the British Museum so I should probably shut up! 😉

Weddings in museums are also cool! I used to work at a natural history museum and one of the paleontologists on staff got married there. They said “I do” under a huge skeleton of a T. Rex. I love nontraditional weddings. 🙂

“nontraditional weddings” is an oxymoron

Anonymous

This is more what I meant – of course I think it’s great they are moral and have principles. But it is also contrived. I agree with below: nontraditional wedding – oxy-emphasis on-moron. It’s called a time and a place. I was being sarcastic with the buying up of animals – it’s called a joke. Don’t take everything so literally. I think if anyone is being daft, it’s believing that just because you invite people to your wedding at a shelter then they will donate. Ironically, I bet there will be someone there in fur or leather. Unless of course… Read more »

Ouch. I was just playing devil’s advocate. No need to get snippy. And I still don’t see how “nontraditional wedding” is an oxymoron. Not by definition. Unless I’m being too literal. 😉

Agreed! Pretentious to the max and weirdly insulting.

I wouldn’t even go to the wedding if it was in an animal shelter. I might not iron my clothes but no way is this Virgo risking my best suit getting dog hair or animal poop on it 😀 . Not even for the most important wedding in the world … I do have standards *ROFLOL*

Isn’t the classic test of being a Scorp, whether they could pass as a vampire? In that case he looks distinctly scorpy/ vampirey to me…

although…he does look like he cares if you think he’s beautiful, which says libra imo.. (as opposed to don’t-give-a-flying-fruit-bat-what-you-think-of-me Scorpio)

he could be beautiful if he weren’t trying so hard.

GeorgeSand

Now that you put it that way, yeah, I’m going to revise my statement and yes more Libra. The hair is another telltale sign imo. And Scorpios know what they are; no wishy-washiness on their part.

Bluesky

Yes. I was thinking the same thing. If he looks like an elf, then it’s more like he resembles an elf vampire.

And his clothes don’t go with Libra.

I’m with you! A Scorp wouldn’t be so open an honest about their birthday for starters – but to say “on the cusp” nah – that is a not a Scorpy at all. They usually tell you to F off when you ask their birthday. This guy is a Libra who can’t quite make up his mind……….

Herby

I agree … A Scorp wouldn’t be indecisive would they? Far too sexy for that sort of indecision.

Nope, not Libra, not stylish enough by half. His gear is an offence to Librans. So Scorpio it is.

Hey! Wait just a minute here. This “being on the cusp is naff” thing is new to me. I’ve always kind of identified as being a Scorpio with Libra tendencies. My birthday is October 26th, so does that mean I actually don’t have any Libra influence? Btw, I too was born in New Jersey and have short legs. But I’m 5’0 and a girl, so that makes me “petite”. He actually reminds me of one of the guys who was on the first series of MTV’s “The Real World”. The one that was the long haired alt rock musician. Although… Read more »

The Sun IS always in one sign or the other but I’ve found people born on the day the Sun changes over always display some tendencies toward both signs, especially physically. However by the 26th you’re deffo a Scorpio. Depends on what the rest of your chart is really and your rising? Maybe you have a lot of planets in Libra?

For example I’m a Scorpio but with some ridic 7 planet/house stellium in Libra/7th house so I identify quite strongly with Libran issues etc.

My Birthday is October 26th too! At 10:34 AM in Baltimore, MD but raised in Laurel, MD. I think it’s really fitting being born in the “Charm City” which is also sometimes known as the “Harm City” as well. Charm is a characteristic of both since signs I think and the concept of extremes and dualities that can be associated with my place of birth is a factor as well. If anyone can provide some insight that would be great.

Wanted to add that I’m a proud Scorpio with noticeable Libra traits and definitely consider myself born on the cusp and get annoyed with sites that don’t agree.

I’d guess Scorpio. It’s the nose.

Agree T. The scorp nose. Scorps don’t want to give out too much info so guessing Scorpy with the “cusp” comment.

Yeah, I thought his answers could be considered Scorp evasiveness as much as Libran indecisiveness.

This post reminded me about AstroFaces: http://www.astrofaces.com/astrofaces/index.html I love this site. You can search user-submitted photos for people based on Sun, Moon, and Asc signs and compare facial characteristics. It’s really interesting.

I’m a Scorpio, and I have short legs and a long torso. I’ve never really paid attention so see if that’s a common Scorp characteristic, though.

i remember being shocked by this man’s beauty on Backyard Bill. Honestly just gorgeous!
I would predict a heavy dose of scorpio, just because I seem to have a fail-safe attraction to those with scorp writ large in their charts.

– on a side note, a scorp or scorper is a type of tool used for hand engraving.
