I see Libra – the Scales or Balance is the seventh sign of the Western zodiac. Souls born between September 23rd and October 22 are born under the astrological or zodiac sign of Libra.
Libra is the Judge. The Soul’s lesson when passing through Libra is that of learning to relate to others..
Libra is a “Cardinal” sign. In the language of astrology, this means Librans are people who radiate energy that moves outward in a definite direction..
The “Cardinal” signs include: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn..
Like all Cardinal signs, Librans initiate actions. They start things – get things going or moving. Cardinal is one of three different modalities of the Zodiac with the other modalities being “Fixed” and “Mutable.”.
Libra is also a masculine sign or polarity sign, which mean Librans are assertive, bold, and expressive..
Libra’s element is “Air” meaning Librans are very mental, intellectual, intelligent, and logical just like the other “Air” signs of Gemini and Aquarius..
Air signs are typically communicative, social, friendly, gregarious, curious, inquisitive, objective, tolerant, and unbiased..
More specifically, Librans are: sharing, cooperative, partner-oriented, refined, social, agreeable, easygoing, affable, gregarious, considerate, balanced, just, fair, harmonious, tactful, diplomatic, charming, impartial, aesthetic, artistic, pleasing, and well-proportioned..
Libra corresponds to the 7th House of the Zodiac known as the Marriage or Relationship House. The traits of this house include marriage, partnerships, love and romance, law, and divorce..
Like its cousin, Taurus, Libra is ruled by Venus – the planet of love, beauty, and romance. The Venus influence makes Libra an ardent romantic and lover – very romantic! Libras are also connoisseurs of good food and drink just like Taurus. They have a fondness for all things beautiful. They are very artistic and appreciate the arts: all of them. They are also very sensual and passionate creatures. They make ideal mates and lovers. Of all signs in the Zodiac, Libras must have love and they crave marriage – after all, Libra correlates to the 7th House of Marriage, Love, and Romance..

Astrological Health Profile
In medical astrology, Libra governs the kidneys, bladder, the ureters, lower back, lumbar region of the spine, and the skin and are thus prone to diseases and disorders of these body parts and organs in particular, and the following diseases and disorders in general:
- Sugar Addiction
- Bright’s Disease
- Nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys)
- Kidney disease
- Bladder infection
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Adrenal gland problems
- Venereal disease
- Ovarian problems
Medical astrologer Judith Hill states the following about Libra:
“The vitality of Libra is excellent and the natives are rarely sick. Many Librans demonstrate a curious ability of being able to live off sugar and junk food for years, appearing none the worse for it. Libra gives a relaxed, easygoing chi force and muscular strength independent of exercise. The love of sugar and utter disregard of the laws of health may eventually undo them, as the kidneys and alkaline balance of the blood are sensitive in this sign. Libra would perhaps be the healthiest sign of all, if only its natives took an interest in health matters.”
The necessary cell salt of Libra is Carbonate of Sodium or Sodium Carbonate. Librans need to take care of their urinary system (kidneys, bladder, ureters) and lower back.
Libras should avoid eating much meat and dairy products as they are acid forming and impair kidney function. No meat and dairy is best, but if you do choose to consume these products, the less you eat of them – the better! They also need to watch their sugar consumption.
