Libra is the Seventh sign of the Zodiac which is sometimes referred to as the Balance. The origin of the word Libra derives from the Latin meaning “balances” or “scales.” Often, a statue of the Goddess of Justice holding the scales or balances is erected over the domes of Justice holding the scales or balances is erected over the domes of modern court houses. In ancient times, this constellation was associated with the judgment of the living and the dead. Libra is the only inanimate sign of the Zodiac, as the other eleven representing either human or animal forms. Nonetheless, some astrologers consider Libra to be the most desirable of all Zodiac types because it represents the zenith of the year. It is a destructive or mischievous (`Dhatin’), biped, Seershodaya i.e., a sign which rise with its head; strong during daytime, represents Sudras or the 4th Varna, black in complexion and is predominant with Rajo guna having a medium build physique. It relates to the western direction and its residence includes lanes, market, towns, and buildings. It is ruled by the Venus and it is a movable, airy and male sign. Also known as the sign of the Judge or Ambassador, like Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius; Libra is positive in polarity. The general characteristics of positive signs broadly match those for the extrovert personality and such individuals are naturally more impulsive, buoyant, communicative and sociable than are the Zodiac Signs of Negative polarity. However, positive signs rarely display the same levels of sensitivity or the same dept of understanding of emotional subtleties as do their negative counterparts. Positive signs tend to crave excitement and thus, are inclined to direct their energies outward into the world around them. Aries is the most flagrantly extrovert of the positive signs (with Sagittarius a close second).

Venus is the planet for harmony and grace, and in this airy sign these qualities get expressed in more abstract forms. The symbol of Libra is a man holding scales, symbolizing an innate affinity with considering balance, proper relations and the harmonious exchange of things. People with a prominent Libra will be easy to deal with due to their Venusians quality. The element of air gives an ability to easily sense other’s people’s nature, and Venus added to that makes for a great talent to create pleasant relationships. Such people will be good at maintaining a balance in the process of giving and taking, or they can use the same to their advantage in salesman type work. This Sign becomes strong, when it is in between 0degree to 3degree.20’
