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 socialize. 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 of arguments.

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 like you!

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 realize that you can rely on your own experiences. You don’t need to use others as a crutch for your decisions.

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 your character.

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 socializing and partying. You are a real ‘people person’.

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 with energy.

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.


September 24 – October 3

If you’re born between the 24th September and 3rd October you are a true diehard Libran with the quality of Venus fully dominating your life.  You are artistic, caring, full of love and social warmth with many friends, but perhaps too many even for you at times.

October 4 – 13

Librans born between the 4th and 13th October are a little “out there” by nature but harmless.  Your life is a bundle of fun and you like the surprises that are thrown at you from time to time.  Expect the unexpected could be your mantra.

Ocotber 14 – 23

The final portion of Libra is between the 14th and 23rd October.  If this is your birth date you are the type of Libran who is constantly on the hunt for knowledge and information – an almost insatiable thirst.  You will never tire of learning new things and could be kindly termed the eternal student.  As well you will never grow old as Mercury’s co-rulership of your life ensures a youthful attitude and sprightly future.



Libra – Virgo Cusp                     

The junction point of two star signs is called the cusp.  This is a change over period when those born in this interval, in your case between the 21st and 29th of September, will partake of some of the characteristics of the previous star sign, namely Virgo.

The combined influence of the two ruling planets that is Venus the ruler of Libra and Mercury, the ruler of Virgo endow you with a very quick and analytical mind.  You have an extended awareness and can apply this to both practical matters as well as spiritual insights as well.

Because you are such a rational person you take on the critical aspects of Virgo and can sometimes be extremely difficult to deal with.  Your mind is in hyper mode much of the time and this can tire you out as well as get people off side.

Relationships are to be felt and ideas are there to be thought about.  Try switching these around although it’s not a bad idea to keep a balance of these other areas of your life and by doing so the Virgo – Libra combination will serve you well.

An important point I should make is that Virgo being the sign of health and Libra being the sign of sociability, one may affect the other.  Living life too hard, on the razors edge is not a good thing for you.  If you are as aware as what I’ve indicated, it will start to make sense when you’re not living in harmony with what nature has intended.

You have a mixture of emotion and mentality and at times when you oscillate between the two.  You try to make decisions with your feelings and try to analyse emotional relationships with your mind.  Don’t you think this is back to front Libra?

Your bodily signals will be quite clearly pronounced and you should listen to what these signals are telling you.  Try to keep balance on your mind, don’t let the critical side of Virgo overtake your sensibilities and be gentle on yourself because Virgo can be their own worst self critics.  Love yourself Libra!


Libra – Scorpio Cusp

The Libra – Scorpio cusp is an intense and passionate one.  If you are born between the 19th and the 24th you’ll have strong elements of Scorpio influencing your personality.

This is an exciting combination which endows you with both social graces and intense sexual magnetism.  Those born in this cusp are probably some of the most sexually switched on individuals in the Zodiac.

You could easily persuade others to do whatever you want them to do but particularly in the bedroom.  This combination makes you a conqueror of the opposite sex.  And fortunately you may have troubles with commitment being born in this cusp and for that reason you’ll need to delve into your past to see what elements of your upbringing have influenced you and may be working against your best interests.

Although you are overly critical, this usually comes from a deep level of devotion to friends and family and often people don’t see this.  Try to be softer in the way you handle the one’s you love.  Your desire to push people to bring out their best may backfire and cause you a lot of troubles.

You have a wonderful sense of intuition and your judgment is profoundly well developed.  You could use both of these attributes to come up with conclusions that others are dazzled by.  People do wonder how you come up with the ideas that you do and there is an element of mental brilliance associated with your birth during this time of the year.

There’s a great impulsiveness in your nature which means you need to be careful about being overly self – indulgent or developing compulsions that are hard to overcome.  Laziness too which is not normally evident in the Scorpio could sneak in to your personality so always fight the urge to lay back and become a couch potato.

Overall this cuspal influence is excellent as it brings eventually peace and harmony and this Scorpionic determination to achieve what it is you so desperately desire in life.
