Nicely written Jaz - as a Professional Astrologer myself, I would encourage you to write more around this subject. It is also interesting to note that, being the only "mechanical" sign of the Zodiac, many Librans are prone to the hinge-point problem of lower back issues, including the Kidneys. Relationships are a major concern, both personally, and in business, and when the Moon is in the 7th House, either by way of sign, or position, there is a strong connection to the relationship with the Mother figure. Another issue can be the presence of Pluto in that house - where it shows the dominance of one or other of the partners, and a constant changing in this sphere.
