Your guide to understanding the energy of Libra season and how you can make the most of this time.
Dates: September 23 - October 22
Libra season is upon us! The sun in Libra offers us an energy that is sociable, harmonious, and fair-minded. People with this air sign can articulate their ideas without bias or favoritism toward others’ opinions. Libras look at things rationally instead of relying heavily on intuition or feeling.
The Sun moves into Libra around the Autumn Equinox each year, from September 23 - October 23. After a long season of growth and preparation, nature prepares for colder weather, and the days become shorter. During this time, everyone can learn something from the Airy Libras, and we can evaluate, weigh, and decide what to do with the awareness that every action we take will have a precise outcome.
The Symbol of the Scales
The symbol of Libra is The Scales, which are based on the scales held by Themis. This Greek personification represents law and custom in regard to justice; she's been given credit for inspiring modern-day images that show Lady Justice with her arms outstretched, representing stability even when it seems otherwise. As there will always be one who will stand up against wrong-doing or unfair practices, this Air sign is ruled by Venus.
Attributes of the Libra sign
Libra is associated with marriage and union with one another. There is no doubt that the comparison with the outside is fundamental for those with this zodiac sign. Love plays a central role in their lives. You will be hard-pressed to find a Libra that wants to be alone. Libras are tender, affectionate, sensitive, and romantic. They also have their own ideas, so don’t assume they’ll be a pushover either. Libras know how to charm, intrigue, and flirt, and they know how to use all of these to their advantage. Comfort, in fact, is another priority, as Libras love to surround themselves with beautiful things.
Libras are conscientious and attentive, and as an Air sign, many are intellectually oriented. They love having a social life, and when Libras are young, they are particularly susceptible to peer pressure, as they hate loneliness. They have a strong sense of justice, which they translate based on personal beliefs. The harmony and balance symbolized by the Libra Archetype are manifested in the instinctive need to restore order to the environment where they live. Venus is an ideal planet for developing excellent artistic sensitivity, inspiration, tenacity, beauty, and rigor. Libras also have an innate sense of proportion, harmony, elegance, and beauty.
Shadow side of Libras
People strongly characterized by this zodiac sign are very attentive to the consequences of their gestures. They know that every action has a reaction. Libras know reflection is an essential part of the process and can sometimes result in indecision if the meditative pause lasts too long. Libras also know how to exploit this innate sensitivity within interpersonal relationships. Libras may come off as inflexible, rigid, too attentive to the social framework, conformist, opportunistic, and rigorous at times.
Libras know how to get what they want from others by using their innate talents. They are not tacticians, just careful and clever individuals who can recognize the right words for any situation that may arise in life!
