This is the seventh sign of the Zodiac, Libra..... part of my 12 picture Zodiac Collection.
With this collection I've tried to create a peaceful, romantic atmosphere... blending both fantasy and a space/starry type background. Achieving this hasn't been as easy as I imagined, as I wanted to base the pictures around the Zodiac Signs' mythology (mostly Greek), and the mythology is a pretty violent one...
The symbol for Libra is the Scales, making it the only zodiac sign of which the symbol is not a living creature. In Greek/Roman mythology, Libra is considered to depict the scales held by Astraea (identified as Virgo), the goddess of justice.
I took a bit of artistic licence with this one, and had the Goddess weighing the good and the bad in a couple of fairies. As you can see, one of them is weighed down by some of the 'naughty' stuff she's been up to.
