Zodiac cards: Libra
What a credit card for a Libra might look like
LibraCard: You may or may not need one
Color scheme: Blue with scales of justice graphic
Chief feature: We're not sure
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Do you need a LibraCard? Probably not. Who needs any credit card, right? I mean, you've got cash and the bank just opened that nice barista station with the free chocolate spoons. Besides, there's always your checkbook; most primates and even some invertebrates have those. Need a LibraCard? Nah. No way. On the other hand, you might want a LibraCard, say if you break down somewhere late at night and the cash machine is broken and your only other choice is to try to write a check to some guy named Wilf whose few remaining teeth have clearly never touched a white strip. So maybe you do want a LibraCard. We'll let you decide.
