Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac. If you were born between the dates of September 23 and October 22, which is also the start of the fall season, you have a Libra Sun sign.
Enjoying your first cup of cocoa of the season, and getting out your cozy socks and sweaters for your birthday, are just a few benefits of being born under the sign of Libra.
WHAT IS A LIBRA?
The symbol for Libra is unique in that it’s not an animal. However, it couldn’t be more accurate. The Libra symbol is the scales. Everything in Libra’s world must be balanced, just like a scale. Libra doesn’t feel right unless justice is served, and everything is equal and in perfect harmony.
Characterized by love, peace, and beauty, the Libra personality is most certainly the fairest of all.
Libra is one of the three Air signs; however, unlike Gemini or Aquarius, Libra isn’t a strong gust of air. Instead, Libra seeks to divert Gemini and Aquarius’ ;powerful presence into a peaceful, more harmonious breeze.
Libras encourage us to slow down and enjoy this pleasant change in the air, but this is probably one of Libra’s biggest downfalls. They care very deeply about others and feel a strong sense of responsibility, not only for their own opinions and well-being but for everyone else’s around them.
Libra is often guilty of caring a little too much about what others think. This can cause them to lose sight of their own individuality, making it one of Libra’s weaknesses. Libra will eventually be able to find their true selves — the journey of getting there will just take them a little longer than most signs.
Although Libra may lack the need for independence, they don’t have any shortage of interesting ideas to bring to the table. Like the other Air signs, Libras are intellectual and always ready to communicate fresh opinions.
Nonetheless, you probably have time for a lunch break while Libra tries to make a decision — that is, if they ever actually come to one. Decisions will never be taken lightly when Libra is involved as they’re careful to take every factor into consideration and examine everyone’s opinion before coming to an assessment.
Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, though a compelling argument stands for the Roman goddess as well. It’s no wonder why Libra has such deep love, as they are heavily influenced by Venus
5 Positive Libra Personality Traits:
Libras like to work as a team. This may not be true for everyone, but they work well in groups. They like discussing and finding solutions together, which dives into their love of balance.
Libras like it when every person does their part to create an amazing whole. Since they are a Cardinal sign, they are natural leaders, so group projects are kind of their thing. In other words, teamwork makes the dream work!
Libra is the social butterfly of the Zodiac. Many signs are envious of Libra’s impeccable social skills since there are very few that rank higher.
Being social is the basic foundation of being a Libra as they love to be around people. They enjoy learning new things, which include meeting new people and getting to know them — i.e., learning what makes them tick, laugh, or cry.
Libras always have something witty to say, making them great conversationalists. They are also very quick thinkers, which makes them excellent problem solvers. If you ever find yourself in a difficult situation, look to your Libra friend and they can most likely get you out of it.
Libra feels very attached to justice and fairness because they want everything to be balanced. They make sure everyone is heard before a decision is made (they probably won’t be making it, though).
Libras believe in the best in people. They are the prime example of looking on the bright side due to their optimistic nature. No one is evil in their eyes to begin with, which is a good quality to have these days where there’s so much hate.
5 Negative Libra Personality Traits:
A people pleaser is one way to described Libra, and that’s because it’s true. Libras love balance and symmetry, so they weigh all options when trying to make a decision. But they can end up obsessing over the pros and cons for hours, and miss out on a great opportunity.
They look over every point of view, which could lead to them losing their own. Libras want to make the decision that best fits everyone and that often results in them losing altogether.
Libras dislike confrontation due to their natural position as a peacekeeper. They are more likely to help other people come to a solution through compromise, but when it comes to their problems, they’ll just sweep it under the rug.
Libras are a bit self-absorbed when it comes to tragedy. When things don’t go well for Libra, they go into tunnel vision where they are only concerned with themselves and have difficulty seeing the bigger picture.
Therefore, they can linger in their disappointment and will throw a pity party for themselves.
Libras are known to be fickle and flighty, thanks to their indecisiveness and inability to commit to one thing. They can’t keep a secrete due to their social nature, which can easily become gossipy if given the chance.
Being ruled by Venus, Libras love beautiful things. They will take those extra five minutes to get ready (even after grooming and preening for hours), and they are the sign that will take their skincare routine to the next level to avoid aging.
This can get in the way of creating relationships as they most likely won’t hang out with people they deem less attractive.
