Libra Horoscope- The Scales
September 24th to October 23rd
The horoscope Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by the Scales of Justice, and is ruled by the Seventh House which is the House of Marriage, Love and Partnerships.
The ancient Romans saw these stars, called them Libra and said it was the balance of Astraea, the goddess of justice.
They are the second of the Air signs which gives them the ability to be impartial in all matters and see both sides of a situation before making a decision. Many judges are born under this sign. They are also the third Cardinal sign which is the sign of initiative. Like Aries, Cancer and Capricorn they like getting things started.
Because they are ruled by the planet Venus which is the planet of love, aesthetics, and eroticism, Librans love to show affection and pleasing others. They are geared for relationships, are romantic and sensual and make an ideal mate because they hate arguments and are always willing to compromise.

Libra birthstone / October Birthstone
Libra Suns have a reputation for being lazy, this however is untrue. Inability to decide quickly between two issues before taking the time to compare the pros and cons is what is often mistaken for laziness. Once the Libra Sun has come to a decision, they will undoubtedly put a plan into action. They simply prefer, if at all possible, to not go into a project alone as they would rather work with a partner. The truth be known, Libra Sun would rather not do anything alone. They are geared toward working with others, having interaction and social connections. There is a great amount of intellectual ability here if the planet Mercury is nicely placed, and they make great friends and conversationalists.
Some folks with Libra Sun rely too heavily on others, never wanting to go somewhere alone, or look for others to validate them. They can trivialize issues just in order to keep the peace. As well, this can sometimes cause the Libra Sun to lose friends, because they can try to play two sides of the net and get a reputation for being two-faced. This is simply a misuse of judgement that comes from a need of harmony and friends, but when it gets out of control, the Libra Sun can find him or herself unwittingly hurting others.
