About Libra Zodiac Sign

Libra is the zodiac's seventh sign, and it is at this point in the zodiac that we begin to see a shift. While the first six zodiac signs concentrate on the person, the last six concentrate on the individual's contact with others and with the world. The first and foremost focus of the Libra zodiac sign is on others and how they relate to them. We can call this the sign of a capital 'P' partnership because these people do not want to be alone!

Everything is better for a Libra if it's done as a pair. As they epitomise balance, harmony, and a sense of fair play, Libras are good when paired up, too. While they are true team players at work, they are at home in their favourite partnership: marriage. When coupled with their lover, Libras feel most complete, forever.

Libra Symbol Myth

The Libra zodiac symbol is the Scales, named by the astrologers of the old world for the stellar constellation this sign corresponded to. The Scales astrological symbol is related to the goddess Themis, who ruled over justice and the law.

In Greek and Roman myths, she is said to be the daughter of Uranus and Gaia, and has links to Venus and Aphrodite. When Themis was positioned as a stellar constellation in the heavens, she initially spanned two zodiac signs, comprising her body with what we call Libra, and her scales of justice forming the sign figure.

Libra Season

The Libra season starts at the Autumn Equinox in the western tropical zodiac, marking the "fall" in the Northern Hemisphere into the period of the year when solar light begins to decrease towards the Winter Solstice. The season in Libra starts on September 23 and ends on October 22. The archetype of Libra is one of harmony, equanimity, and equality, symbolised by an equal measure of daylight and nightfall on the day of the Autumn Equinox.

Libra in Cardinal Mode

Libra is the third of the zodiac's four cardinal signs, all of which have an elemental, initiatory force that signals the start of the four seasons. The Fall starts with Libra, the root of the affinity of the Scales for leadership in diplomacy and social justice.

Libra in Air Element

The element of Libra is air; a light element, a dispersive element, thought to be an expression of matter by ancient astrologers that represents formlessness, adaptability, and dissolution. Like the active, flowing air part, Libra's affinity for ease in supporting social ties and exploring the world with grace and poise is similar.

Libra: Domicile of Venus

Venus is the celestial lord of both Libra and Taurus in astrology. Libra was assumed to be Venus' day or daytime habitat, while Venus sought a nocturnal home in the abundant, earthy Taurus.

In Libra, in the harmonious archetype of this symbol, Venus has complete affinity and potency, being able to be as peaceful, diplomatic, and caring as a planetary force as she likes to be. In Libra, Venus is found in the charts of beautiful, graceful and sociable individuals who have a natural affinity for negotiating and projecting an artistic flair.

Libra: Ruling Body Parts

This symbol, often the sign of the Scales, regulates the kidneys that regulate the body and the lower back.

The lumbar area, the buttocks and the endocrine system are the Libra body part. Librian people even rule over the skin, you may have especially good skin, born under this symbol!
