Libra is symbolized by the scales, but it doesn’t mean that this sun sign is lacking in adventure or plenty of ups and downs.

As a Libra friend of mine once said, “We’re still working on the balancing thing.”

Often, we have preconceived notions about what each sun sign is all about. We see Libra’s scales and assume that folks born under that sign will have their act down pat.

The danger of this is that they try to live up to our expectations—sometimes Libra pretends that life isn’t throwing them a curve ball.

“Aren’t you a Libra? If you don’t have balance in your life, then who will” is a question that Libra’s meet with a proverbial roll of their eyes.

Here’s a little bit about Libra that reveals their true, enigmatic nature.

Libra: September 24 – October 22.

Number: six.

Associated with economy and efficiency (in sacred geometry this is represented by the hexagon) intellectual creativity, imagination, reconciliation, union, love, perfection. In the school of mystery, the number six connects above and below. Pretty exciting for a sign that appears to be as cool as a cucumber, yes?

Day of the Week: Friday.

The name Friday comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ, meaning the “day of Frige” a result of an old convention associating the Old English goddess Frigg with the Roman goddess Venus, with whom the day is associated in many different cultures.

Gemstone: Sapphire.

A stone of intuition and meditation. It can bring to light creative expression (good for artists and all creatives) and is also used to bring joy, peace, and fulfillment of dreams and prosperity.
