What is the connection between ear, balance, and Libra?
In astrology every sign of the zodiac has its symbol — Taurus, the Bull, Leo, the Lion — Libra’s symbol is the Balances and symbolizes the ideal of a balanced relationship in which each person is an equal partner, i. e., equal in importance.
While Jewish Astrology shares this iconic symbol for Libra, its also has another meaning because Libra is associated with the Jewish lunar month of Tishrei, the seventh month. Jewish tradition celebrates the first day of the seventh month as Rosh Hashanah, the New Year. This first day is also called the ‘Day of Judgment’. Thus, Libra, the Balances, is given another profound interpretation: the Scales of Judgment.
And even the name of the sign in Hebrew, Moznaim, from the verb ‘ee-zeyn’ אזן – to balance – has the same letters as the noun, ‘o-zen’ אזן – ‘ear’. New Year’s day has one primary act to perform and that act is to hear the sound of the Shofar!
