which explains the troublemaking role she played in the Judge crisis.
If she'd been more independent she'd never have fallen into alliances
first with one and then with the other, each of which successive
loyalties exacerbated the tensions between the two men and led to the
split of the TS. Librans can be peacemakers, but their tendency to
please whomever they're talking to at the moment can also lead to 
bollixing things up badly. Trying to stay on the good side of
Krishnamurti, CWL, and Arundale all at the same time was another
situation in which her "leadership" exacerbated problems rather than
solving them.
