(September 21st - October 21st)
Libra is a cardinal air sign and as all the cardinal signs, it begins
a season - autumn. It is the 7th sign of the zodiac and thus rules all
7th house issues, mainly one-on-one relationships of all kinds. These
include marriage, of course, but also your relationships with doctors,
lawyers, or astrologers. It rules the scales of justice of the lower courts.
(The higher courts belong to Sagittarius.)
Libras live for love. They do not like to be alone and so usually have
highly developed social skills. They are pleasant to be around and at
times so gregarious and undemanding that you wonder if they have an opinion
about anything. They are renown for their inability to make a decision,
a sometimes-frustrating characteristic. But don't let that sweet exterior
fool you. There is nothing weak about them. This is a cardinal sign and
so has a great deal of ambition and direction. They are self-motivated,
dominating and willful, but they do it in such a nice way that you may
not notice, and can at times be accused of being passive-aggressive. They
tend to cling to the past and often have a difficult time breaking away
from the parental home.
Libras make excellent diplomats and because of their friendly outgoing
nature can work well with the public. Unfortunately don't expect your
Libra buddy to jump to your defense. They like to remain neutral, as two
Libra countries, Switzerland and Sweden will attest.
In the physical body Libra rules the kidneys (there is one on each side
of the body thus balancing it out), whose job is to purify the body. Through
relationships we purify the soul. In love you can be sure they are never
without admirers. From the time they are about 5 years old there is a
"significant other" in their lives. These people live for relationships.
If you are too busy to see your Libra sweetie, assume she isn't sitting
home watching Wheel of Fortune. There is always someone else waiting in
the wings. Once they give their heart though, there isn't a better marriage
partner in the zodiac. You just have to become adept at picking out their
restaurant, movies and their clothes as the Libra will never decide.
