Libra.svgLibra, the Balance

Libra is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Libra. In astrology, Libra is considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four cardinal signs. Libra is ruled by the planetVenus, which also rules Taurus.

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Libra individuals. According to traditional astrology under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Libra on the moment of northern autumnal equinox on September 23, leaving it on October 22. However the actual celestial coordinates of the Sun during this period place the Sun in Virgo
