You’re born under the sign of Libra, which represents the element of
air, or the intellect. You’re most definitely a thinker — you like to
use your mind to tackle problems. Libra is the seventh sign of the
zodiac, which refers to relationships of all sorts and your connection
to the world around you.
People know you as someone who loves to socialise. Your outgoing nature
and love of communicating brilliant ideas to people around you is one of
your strengths. You’re rarely at a loss for words … even on your worst
day you have the gift of the gab!
You not only have the ability to share your ideas in a very natural way;
you also have charm in the way you convey your feelings. This is another
of your very positive traits. Even people who don’t agree with what you
have to say can’t resist you and will usually behave well around you —
you’re simply a nice person.
Your love of communication makes you an excellent mediator and
negotiator. Coupled with the fact that you’re always reasonable in the
way you deal with people, this means your friends and co-workers can
always depend on your having a balanced viewpoint, even in the fiercest
In fact, if there’s a problem with you, it comes out of the fact that
you’re so good at seeing all the sides of a problem and staying
impartial. This makes it hard for you to commit to one side of an
argument — you don’t want to be seen as biased, and you want everyone to
What ends up happening is that the way you get everyone’s approval is by
agreeing with everyone. This is not a good idea, because you’re agreeing
to things for the wrong reasons: to keep everyone on side, rather than
because you’re firmly committed to something. Try not to do this,
because it can mess up your dealings with people. You don’t need to bend
over so far just to be accepted.
Making decisions is an area in which you excel, but again, don’t jump to
conclusions simply to please others. You have the ability to look at all
sides of an issue, so use it. Sometimes you get stressed if you feel you’re
being obstructed somehow. The answer is to get all the relevant facts;
running off and asking others to support you will just confuse things.
And anyway, if you look inside yourself you’ll realise that you can rely
on your own experiences. You don’t need to use others as a crutch for
When you get to know people, you are perfectly comfortable sharing your
feelings with them, and you’ll go to some trouble to make them feel at
ease. You create harmony in your environment to match the harmony in
This relates to the fact that your ruling planet is Venus. This is a
soft and gracious planet, and feminine by nature. Your softer side is
expressed in pretty much everything you do — the way you entertain
guests, the type of home furnishings you like to buy, the clothes you
wear and even your personal grooming.
All these things express the natural flair and grace which is part of
that Venus temperament. There’s no way others won’t notice your style.
People see you as elegant and tasteful — and that’s people who know you
well as well as people who’ve just met you.
You often make a great first impression because you are such a good
communicator and connect so easily with people; this makes you an ace
networker. Some people believe you must have an ulterior motive because
you are dealing with so many people at once, but it’s really just that
you absolutely love socialising and partying. You are a real ‘people
Because Venus is the planet of love, you seek love this in everything
you do, and particularly in relationships. Finding your soulmate is a
big dream, perhaps even your most significant life mission — you will go
to great lengths to meet lots and lots of people. Who knows where you’ll
find the right one? You have a lot to give to the person you feel is
your perfect match.
Very few Librans find the peace and satisfaction they’re looking for
until they’ve connected with that special person. Once this happens,
they can really get into their work, family and other domestic affairs
There are three grades of Libra. Which of these do you fall under? You
can figure it out by the date of your Libran birth.
If you're born between the 24th of September and the 3rd of October you
are a true die hard Libran and have the qualities of Venus fully
dominating your life. You are artistic, caring and full of love and
social warmth. Venus provides you with loads of friends, perhaps too
many at times.
Librans born between the 4th and 13th of October are a little wacky by
nature but harmless. If that's you, life is a bundle of fun and you can
expect the unexpected from time to time. You like the surprises that
life throws at you.
The final portion of Libra occurs between the 14th and 23rd of October.
Were you born during this time frame? If so, you are the type of Libran
who is constantly on the hunt for knowledge and information. You are an
eternal student who will never tire of learning news things. As well,
you will never grow old as Mercury's co rulership of your life ensures a
sprightly and youthful attitude.
Libra is a movable air sign, which means there’s creativity in you. You
are quick to grasp ideas, and you have a need to produce works of art
and unusual or original things. You bring a touch of art to anything you
do. Remember to incorporate this part of you into all your life’s
activities; you’ll be richly rewarded.
