2017 Yearly Libra Horoscope
As 2017 begins, Libra, you’re likely to be feeling somewhat relieved. This may sound a strange thing to say, since Jupiter, which is known as the planet of good fortune, growth and opportunity, will have only just departed your sign, in late October 2016.
However, when you look back at the year just past, you’ll notice that while there may have been intriguing developments, opportunities and perhaps even outright offers, Jupiter’s presence in your sign is also disruptive. You broadened your circle, met new people, saw new places and in the process experienced a shake-up in several areas of your life. In fact, sometimes what took place wasn’t merely exciting – it was overwhelming.
Consequently, now that Jupiter’s moved on to emphasise the practical side of your life, it would be no surprise if you were feeling a sense of relief. Being a Libra and somebody who needs balance in your life, you’re likely to devote the first two thirds of the year to re-establishing stability in various areas of your life, from the most personal to business and relationships.
Examining the year, it would be safe to say that 2017 can be divided into thirds. The first part, which continues until the all-important Libra full moon on 13 April, will be all about reviewing what took place during 2016, both offers and disruptive events. And it will be about allowing you to choose which of those opportunities you want to take to the next stage and which you feel ready to say farewell to. This won’t be easy, since when they arose you were excited about them. Yet, with Saturn, the most practical planet of them all, continuing to emphasise an analysis of who and what is in your best interests, the year is all about exactly that – about a down-to-earth analysis of what works and what doesn’t.
As a Libra, you’ll often put others in your life first. No sign has a greater gift for understanding and supporting those around you, partners in particular, but also family and friends. This is to such an extent that you’ll often neglect your own interests. One of your primary concerns during 2017 will be balancing these two, and in the process living up to the symbol of your sign, the scales, by balancing your attention to your own needs and requirements with those of others.
During the first third of the year, therefore, don’t worry if you seem to be focusing more on the past than the present. That’s as it should be. From that point onward – from the Libra full moon, on 13 April – you’ll be conducting a serious examination of various opportunities, both those from the year just past and those that arise as the result of discussions during this period.
Here, again, you’ll be thinking about what’s in your best interests. But it may not be until the year’s final third that you are able to make lasting decisions. It may seem a long wait. But once you understand that on 8 September Mars, the planet of ego and energy, moves into Libra, to remain there until late October, you’ll realise why it’s so important not to rush into such matters.
Mars takes two years to go around the Zodiac, and in the time since it was last in your sign, a great deal has happened. Because Mars is the planet of ego and of courage, its presence in your sign triggers a cycle of intense self-analysis, of personal review and, most of all, a period when you begin to recognise who and what is most important to you.
During this period, which lasts from 8 September until 23 October, therefore, you’ll find that it seems to be easier to focus on yourself, and to make clear-minded decisions about what you’ll take to the next stage into your life. This applies to the practical side of your life, to finances and work, to your romantic life and to close relationships. If there’s any area on which you’ll want to focus, it is those practicalities and finances.
With Jupiter having moved to accent this part of your chart, and remaining there until the end of November, there are bound to be opportunities. Here, again, it’s about balancing what you want to do with what’s wise. And it’s about asking tough questions. But, most of all, it’s about the kind of self-interest that is so difficult for you to achieve, particularly when it comes to using your other resources, not merely your money, but your time, your effort and even your love.
Once you’ve achieved a balance in this area, not only will you be able to make wise decisions, but the decisions you make will shape your life in wonderful ways for years to come.
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 Traits and Libra Personality
Besides being fair Librans are the most romantic and seductive sign in the zodiac. Charm is their middle name and they are very determined in charming the object of their affection. They are faithful but can be possessive.
Librans are very social people and because of their innate empathy they are sensitive to the needs of others. They make people feel better just by being around them. Librans have tact and diplomacy with their dealings and make good diplomats. Their strong sense of fairness and justice makes them perfect mediators as well. Their strongest asset is their ability to bring people together and their love to help people in need.
Librans love beauty and elegance in all areas of their lives and beauty and harmony in all relationships are what the Libran is all about. By reaching out and making compromises they seek to improve and work on relationships. Librans are well balanced and even tempered but they do not like having their decisions challenged.

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.
