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.
