Daily Prompt: Custom Zodiac

You’re tasked with creating a brand new astrological sign for the people born around your birthday — based solely on yourself. What would your new sign be, and how would you describe those who share it?

You must be kidding me. We are already the scales of justice. We stand for freedom and fairness. What more do we need? I suppose if we needed another attribute, we might pick Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, always a handy trait when meting out justice. Also a good idea when we talk about fairness. Okay, so we’re the Atheniac Librans, and we stand for justice laced with wisdom. Solomon shall stand as one of our guides.

I’m not convinced any of the Greek pantheon would stand for compassion, although Demeter certainly stood for nurturing. We might add her to our sign to balance Athena. After all compassion also has a role in justice. This would make us the Atheniac Demetric Librans.

Our image will be the old symbol of blind justice holding the scales, with stern Athena peering over her shoulder, while Demeter flutters at her feet.  Sound ridiculous enough for you?
