Libra September 23 - October 22

Ruled by the planet Venus, Librans are optimistic and cheerful people with the ability to delight and charm their friends and associates. They are extremely sociable and easy going and make friends easily. The most distinct characteristic of Librans is their willingness to help others. Be it monetary, moral or psychological support, they are always there for their near and dear ones. Librans have amazing healing powers - they can make a person feel better within a few minutes of conversation.

Librans are diplomatic in nature and prefer to keep everyone happy. They quickly pull themselves out of the frame of any conflict or clash. Such is their peace-loving nature that they would do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone around them, for their own benefit as well as for the society as a whole. However, a sudden burst of rage is not uncommon. They can be frivolous, flirty and even shallow. Libra individuals have a deep understanding of the emotional needs of their friends. 

Librans are generally found to be fair complexioned, with medium to tall height and attractive looks. They have a strong sense of justice, which makes them excellent persuaders. They have a creative bent of mind and have great perceptional and observational skills. Nonetheless, they are so simple and trusting that they can be easily fooled. Libran individuals usually get the opportunity to travel far and wide. They love luxury and are extravagant in their lifestyle.

Libra is the only zodiac symbol that's neither animal nor human -- but surely that doesn't make you any less human. In fact, Libra is among the most sociable of the signs. As scales of old were really "balances," so to do you seek balance in all that Libra does. You respond to situations with grace as Libra attempts to put others at ease. Artistically, Libra tries to balance form, content, colors and elements, and for this reason can be drawn toward creative endeavors.

The greatest balancing act is between self and others, and it is here that many Libras focus their energy. Here, in the realm of interpersonal relationships, you are a champion. Libra know how to be the charming host or hostess. Libra can sense what others want before they ask for it. And you can make the needs of others a higher priority than your own. In fact, Libra is the shuttle diplomats of the zodiac, going back and forth between the extremes until a solution is negotiated.

The Libra motto might be "To every action there is an opposite and equal reaction." It is your innate sense of cause and effect that makes you so effective as a strategist. Whether it's playing chess, relationship counseling or civic planning, you know how to be effective while staying in the middle of the road. Your easygoing attitude can serve you and others well, but don't forget that your needs cannot go totally unfulfilled or you won't have anything to give to others.

Element: Air
The astrological element of air represents movement. And the most efficient movement between two points is often a thought. Air signs are thinkers. They emphasize the intellect over other functions. With active minds and a good command of language, the air signs are the natural born communicators. They can be light and breezy as the breath of spring, but their words can also carry the power of a gale force wind. The air of Libra is about equilibrium. Even the atmosphere needs to rest, so here, we seek ways to give our thoughts temporary respite from their never-ending movement.

Libra Lovers Information

For the Libran falling in love comes naturally, as their fundamental instinct is to have a happy and enduring relationship. To the Libran life without love makes it hard for them to operate, they long for the feeling of being loved.

At times the Libran may become confused thinking that they have found love, when in turn it may only be infatuation. Some Librans prefer to endure a bad and unfulfilling relationship rather than setting out on their own, as they are not good loners.

Seventh House: Partners
If the First House represents the self, the Seventh House opposite it, represents the other. This can be a business partner, a spouse or any other type of relationship amongst equals. Most often, this is where we look to see how you relate to others in your life.

Key Planet: Venus
Venus is the planet of love and desire. She is in charge of romance and beauty. But Venus isn't only about physical love; she's also symbolic of the ideal love. When we see a beautiful painting or other work or art, Venus is present. She is the beauty of a rose as much as she is the attraction we have to someone we love. As the key planet of Libra, Venus is about the perception of beauty as an ideal. Here, she is the proper blend of colors, the right mix of music or the perfect poetic description of love, itself.

Libra Greatest Strength:
Your grace and charm when helping others

Libra Possible Weakness: Forgetting to take care of your own needs

Best Match For Libra Is Aquarius

These two signs are most suitable in terms of marriage. Both have perfect affinities with their mutual love of society, beauty, and people. The only caution would be that the Aquarius’ mate at times for no reason may seek seclusion and shut the door to any communication. The Libran must allow Aquarius to relish in their seclusion, afterwards all is well if Libra does not insist on any explanation.

Worst Match For Libra Is Virgo

This affair most likely will not blend well. At first while sex and curiosity are stimulated, all appears well. But, when both signs come down to earth there is a slim chance the relationship will go on with any happiness when both find the others basic qualities are still in tact.

The one thing a Libran does not like is criticism. And the Virgoan loves to dish it out. Not to mention the clash between the two when it comes to perfection, where Virgo insists on it and the Libran hates detail. Conflicts in this combination are many, but if both try hard and work to understand the others pet peeves, they can find mutual grounds of respect for one another.

Libra charcteristics and personality traits - Zodiac Sign - ruled by Venus.

Your Sun Zodiac sign may not best describe your personality features, your characteristics and general qualities that you bring to life. For many people, their Ascendant or its planetary ruler is the more obvious characteristic, or sometimes the Moon sign. Your Sun sign, rather, says more about the direction you should be moving in, to make the contribution to humanity you were born to make, and thus achieve a degree of personal fulfilment.

The goal for Libra is to witness the importance of co-operation and harmony in human life. Libra is represented by a pair of scales - the only sign to be represented by an inanimate object. This says something about the Libra objective - to be fair and balanced in everything in a detached way - it is an air sign and therefore seeks an ideal. At its best, Libra can view complex situations, maybe emotionally highly charged ones, and come to a balanced view based on a fair consideration of all the options. However, it may take a while to come off the fence! Come down in favour of one side of the scales and the other side goes up and Libra always seeks to restore balance.
