Libra Decan 1 is ruled by the Moon and Venus (Libra triplicity). The Sun saunters through the constellations of the Herdsman, the Dragon, Berenice’s hair, the Virgin, and the Great Ship from September 23 to October 3. The combination of the popular moon and charming tropical Libra gives us the zodiacs courtesans, diplomats and artists. These people are adept and bringing peace and harmony into the most fraught situation.
They have a reputation of being the good guys, your best friend in the whole world, the one who you can call at 3 am in the morning and a softly spoken voice will say “That’s fine hon.” Are they perfect? Not quite. Like all the decans there will be a negative side, all this sugary sweetness can give one diabetes. The ironic thing about Libra decan 1 is that sometimes their push for peace can attract very aggressive and mean mates. Either that or violence just seems to blow up around them for no reason at all.
In Crowds & Triangular Relationships
Libra has a horror of arguing, they don’t like to offend, so they tell lots of little white lies, and I mean lots….The danger is that they could all become one big fat lie which then will reveal itself at just the wrong moment. When this happens our perfect Venus turns into her nemesis. Eris!! What, the ugly goddess of discord in our perfectly balanced and aesthetically lovely Libra? This is Libra’s shadow of course, but Eris is just as much a part of Libra as Venus. Just as the 7th house is both partners and open enemies.
Austin Coppock and Ibn Ezra associate the scales more strongly to decan 1 than with the other two Libra decans. I also think the qualities of Maat are strong here. The Tarot card associated within this decan is the two of swords which “often indicates arguments between people who are being rigid and unyielding. Both sides are locked into the battle. There is little room for forgiveness and no sign of a thaw. This argument could go on for years and taint generations to come unless someone is brave enough to sort it out. People need to lay down their weapons and open their heart to forgiveness.” ~ teachmetarot. Karmically this shows the polarity of Aries to Libra where Libra is the ‘other’. The balancing of the scales indicates finding a compromise in this lifetime to extremism in the past…

Ascendant Libra 1
Zaniah 4º ~ “ An attribute of Zaniah can be seen in the Mercury-Venus-in-Libra talent for negotiating peace. One attribute which a good commander (or salesman) must surely need is an intuition for knowing to call a halt to battle and either offer or seek terms for peace.” 
Vindematrix 9º ~ “On the MC or on the Ascendant this star with its Saturn-Mercury nature is said to help mental concentration and to promote the type of native who engages for architects and businessmen.” and (heliacal rising star.) A life philosophy of completing projects, a person who sees solutions by collecting data, a person who seeks to complete collections.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Libra decan 1 the triangular relationships will be most notable in love relationships. Yes, Libra decan 1 tend to get become one of a triad. Deep down they may actually prefer the lifestyle of the “other woman/man”, whether they realise it or not. Think about it Libra? Don’t you just love spending hours getting ready for that important date? Luxuriating in a scented bath, buying special silk underwear, wining and dining in obscure out-of-town restaurants and then the desperately romantic, “when-will-I-see-you-again?” lovemaking at the end of the night. The clock strikes midnight and free-spirit Libra flies back to their peaceful solo nest. Zaniah is the peacemaker, however, so ironically this third person can also be the diplomat. The most positive manifestation of the triangulation tendencies of this decan then is the ability to balance two opposite parties. Libra rising 1 make great mediators in family courts and divorce cases and they are always very fair!

Sun Libra 1
Zaniah 4º ~ “ Educational and studious interests, popular, social success, much pleasure, favourable for marriage.”  Vindematrix 9º ~ “Worry, depression, unpopular, failure in business, harassed by creditors.”  and “The one who gathers information, things or people. To bring order to collections, to see patterns of meaning. People gather together, an event that unites.” 
When these folk shine they really, really shine. These folk indeed are the perfectly charming Libran, the sweetest friend in all the world. Just make sure you do not betray them because if you do then their shadow side can spit venom like the best Scorpio. As I said in the general section, there can be quite extreme flips over to Eris if the delicate Libra balance is upset. Libra is an air sign and can be quite mentally anxious. Yes, Libra is famed for its harmony and peacemaking, but they can also just as much work themselves into a negative worry spiral such is the influence of Vindematrix at the end of this decan. Sun Libra 1 could also find themselves partaking in too much of the vine if they are not getting the love they need which can also pull them into depression. The contrasts between happiness and sadness can be pretty sharp and there is a certain bi-polarity here. The bright Sun can suddenly flip over to eclipse itself and its Venus ruler (As the morning star) can go full-on Lucifer! Austin Coppock’s interpretations of the Sun here echo this peacemaking paradox. Of Libra decan 1 he says “They believe in fairness and strive, in their way, to make the world a better place. They often accomplish this in their works, but in their personal lives they are often much less successful, for they are often blind to the small injustices commited within their own relationships.”
