Libra is the sign that rules the 7th month of the solar year, and
the 7th house of the zodiac. We‘ve reached the halfway point
between spring and winter, with the Autumnal Equinox. There is equal
day to equal night hours, and likewise, Libra is all about equality
Libra is the first month of the fall season, making it the third cardinal sign
of the zodiac. With it comes the leadership energy brought into question.
Libra wants to give everyone a voice when leading a group. Libra is active/male
in its polarity, but gentle and compromising energy. This makes it hard
for the Libran energy to find its leadership opportunities, as it is it‘s
nature to seek all sides and at times, take no sides.
Libra is the second air sign of the zodiac, intellectual and psychological.
It is a social energy, bent on the more the merrier. But Librans seek
balance through isolation at times, to recharge and rethink. They are
so mental and fair; at times they go around in circles trying to make
a decision. This can be overcome through discipline and courage.
Libra is ruled by Venus, along with Taurus. The arts, music, harmony and beauty
are very important to Librans. Venus is the planet of love and attraction,
affection, and values. Due to the active/male energy governing Libra,
the feminine energy brought by Venus accentuates the balance of the sign:
Male/Female. Again, astrologers believe another planet will be discovered
that is the true rulership of Libra. Time will tell.
The symbol for Libra is the Scales of Justice. Libra energy denotes fairness,
justice, and balance. It also is read as a half setting sun below the
horizon, thus the first half of the year culminating and the second begun.
Balance, equality, harmony and peace are necessary for a happy Libran.
The highest use for a Libran is to seek balance in their life. To find balance
in work/play, social/alone time, material and spiritual pursuits. To learn
to make choices built on personal conviction rather than always trying
to make someone else happy. To find their voice and work honestly toward
harmony in all environments.
