You can check out my website at I'm here to talk to you today about Horoscopes. So the seventh sign of the zodiac is Libra. So if you were born between September 21 and October 22, then you're a Libra. Now, what's interesting about Libra is that the date on or around September 22 of each year is the autumn equinox, and on that day, it's one of the few days where the length of day and the length of night are roughly equal, which refers to the symbol of Libra, which is the scales. So the scales refer to Libras need for balance and harmony and peace and keeping things even-keeled. Above all, Librans crave harmony, equality and fairness. Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty, so there's this element of Libra that's very good with design and aesthetics and decorating. Libra is the most partnership-oriented sign of the zodiac, so Librans really thrive in relationships. They're not by nature an alone type, they're people who really need to be with people, whether it be a friend or family member or a loved one; they don't like to do things alone, typically. They want to do things and experience life with other people, that's the way they find a sense of balance and fulfillment. So, like the scales, like the image of the scales, Libra people are always trying to weigh and measure, and they do this with every situation in their life. They do it with people, they do it with circumstances or events; and in doing so, they can become very much off-balance, very easily, so this intense need for balance could easily cause a Libra to get off-balance, because it's not always possible to decide if situation A is better than situation B, or if this personality trait is preferable to the other one. So Libras are generally very easy-going, very charming, very attractive, they're very interested in making themselves look good at all times, that's very important to a Libra, that they look good and they like to put a good face on things, so even if something terrible is going on, a Libra wants to try to make it look as good as possible. Out of a desire not to make any waves, Libra will go to any kind of lengths at times to do so, even if it involves lying or not being completely honest. On the downside, sometimes Libra can be a little hostile, superficial and elitist. Some famous Libras include John Lennon, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Eminem.
