Some famous Libra personalities
John Ono Lennon, a famous Libra man, born Liverpool, England, October 9, 1940, died December 8, 1980, was considered the most intellectual and outspoken member of The Beatles. Influenced by early representatives of American rock ‘n’ roll–Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Little Richard–Lennon organized his first band, The Quarrymen, with Paul McCartney. A few years after he enlisted the talents of George Harrison and later Ringo Starr and changed the band’s name. By the time the group disbanded in 1970, The Beatles had grown into a phenomenon of enormous sociological dimension. Lennon went on to make a number of successful album recordings, including Imagine (1971) and Mind Games (1973), and continued to make political protests with the Japanese-born artist Yoko Ono, whom he married in 1969.

She is best known for her performances in the films Mary Poppins (1964), for which she won an Academy Award, and The Sound of Music (1965). Among the attempts to change her saccharine image are the Hollywood farce S.O.B. (1981), Victor/Victoria (1982), in which she plays a woman masquerading as a homosexual female impersonator, and That’s Life!, about a woman facing the possibility of cancer. Her husband, Blake Edwards, directed all these films.
Miguel de Cervantes
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, a famous Libran man, was born on September 29, 1547, and died April 23, 1616, a Spanish novelist, dramatist, and poet, was the author of the novel Don Quixote, a masterpiece of world literature. Cervantes was born to a poor family in the university town of Alcala de Henares. Without the means for much formal education, he became a soldier, lost the use of his left hand in the Battle of Lepanto, and was imprisoned in Algiers. On his return to Spain he worked at a series of government jobs that involved extensive travel in Andalucia. His career as a public servant was marked by as much misfortune as was his military career. Only at the end of his life was he able to obtain a patron and to devote full attention to his writings.
Charles Edouard Jeanneret, a famous Libran man, more popularly known as Le Corbusier, was born in La Chaux-de-fonds, Switzerland, on October 6, 1887, and died 1965. He was a Swiss-French architect who played a decisive role in the development of modern architecture. He first studied in Paris with August Perret, and then worked for several months in the Berlin studio of industrial designer Peter Behrens, where he met the future Bauhaus leaders Ludwig Mies Van Der Howe and Walter Gropius. Shortly after World War I, Jeanneret turned to painting and founded, with Amedee Ozenfant, the purist offshoot of cubism. With the publication in 1923 of his influential collection of polemical essays, ‘Vers une architecture’, he adopted the name Le Corbusier and devoted his full energy and talent to creating a radically modern form of architectural expression.
