Equinox


The Arabian names for the two main stars of Libra reveal
something of their reflection on the essence of balance:

Zuben Elginubi means "the price to be paid"

and

Zubenelschemali means "the price to be received"

The symbol for Libra appears to derive from the Egyptian
hieroglyphic Akhet, "the place of sunrise" ~ and may
also have symbolized the Autumnal Equinox.
