As we transition out of the hardworking Virgo season, we get ready to welcome the diplomatic and balanced energy of the Libra. Kicking off on September 23rd, Libra season is about finding balance in your life. This is the season where the signs are likely to put more of a focus on creating a more grounded atmosphere in their life, and may even find themselves feeling a little more flirtatious and social.
As we enter their season, the Libra energy is beaming around us for all Zodiac signs and is likely to affect us in several ways. So, to give you a better idea of what you can expect to feel for the next several weeks, today, we’re going to talk about Libra season. We will cover Libra’s personality traits, ruling element, planetary influence, and some of the key energies that the other Zodiac members can expect to feel while we linger in their sign. Let’s get started.
Libra Personality Overview
Starting with their personality, the Libra sign is most known for its fair and just personality. They take balance very seriously and need symmetry in all that they do to feel secure. They also feel very strongly about all things related to justice and equality and are constantly working to incorporate more of these beliefs into their life.
Outside of their general key traits, the Libra is also known for being very kind and social. They love meeting new people, building connections, and are always willing to go out of their way to help others and will stand up for someone in need. However, just because they are willing to stand for what they believe in does not mean Libra likes confrontation.
They will do almost everything they can to avoid it and keep the peace in their life. This is because they are natural peace-makers and have enacted to turn a negative confrontation into something positive. On balance, their general personality is very kind, fun-loving, lavish, and lighthearted, and can be a true treasure of a sign to have in your life.
However, the Libra can also struggle with running from confrontations a little too much, which can cause a lot of friction in their life. If they can’t bring harmony to a situation, Libra will often avoid that situation at all costs, which can often backfire. This can make them act very immature in these scenarios and can also make them incredibly passive-aggressive with those around them.
Not to mention, with such a dire need for balance, when Libra can’t seem to find or create the life they want, they can become incredibly indecisive and flakey in their decisions, making them very unpredictable and unreliable, especially in love. This, as a result, can cause a lot of tension between them and their partner. For that reason, Libra will need to work not to get cold feet when things don’t work how they want them to and instead find other, more responsible ways to handle difficult situations.
When it comes to their planetary ruler, Libra is ruled by the planet Venus. Known as the planet of love, beauty, art, and materialism, this influences Libra’s love for beauty in all things. From their looks to the surrounding world around them, Libra’s love beautiful things and love to surround themselves with them. They appreciate the finer things of life and often love a versatile selection of music, art, dance, and decor. This unique taste often makes them excellent artists and designers and can help them do well in these careers.
However, Venus doesn’t just influence Libra’s love of beautiful things. It also invokes Libra’s natural charm and alluring personality. In love, they are incredibly caring and have enact on keeping things fun and passionate, no matter how long you’ve been together. This often makes them excellent lovers and can be a natural draw for those around them seeking comfort and balance in love.
Outside of romance, however, this influence also contributes to their incredibly loving nature in their friendships. Libra’s are naturals at building connections with people and often have versatile friendships. Libra truly lives by the mentality of “creating love, not war” and will always seek that harmony in every relationship and friendship they build.
Next, aside from their planetary ruler, Libra is also deeply influenced by its elemental sign: air. Known as the element of intellect and knowledge, air influences the Libra in a variety of ways. Still, it can most commonly be seen in their abilities to initiate new things and develop new ideas easily. And, since Libra is considered to be the cardinal sign of all air signs, this makes them even more prominent in their way of thinking, which can make them excellent leaders and teachers to follow.
Air signs are known to be very social and are often inspired by things that stimulate their minds, such as new challenges, good books, and deep intellectual conversations. Because of this, air signs can often feel disconnected from others if there’s no intellectual depth between them and can easily become bored of conversations and situations.
However, because the air sign often has so new ideas come to them, they can sometimes struggle with putting those plans into motion, which can put a lot more stress on them. This can cause them to become overwhelmed and indecisive and jump from one idea to the next without a second thought.
For that reason, if Libra wants to be more consistent, they would do well to weigh out the pros and cons of every decision and see which one they are willing to put work into instead of jumping in without thinking it all the way through.
Next, aside from their ruling planet and elemental sign, each Zodiac sign also has a symbol that represents them and pays homage to their overall Zodiac persona. For the Libra, this symbol is represented by the scales.
The scales have long been believed to be linked with balance, equality, and justice, which make up the sum of Libra’s core beliefs. In mythology, the scales were often believed to appear in death to weigh out the good and bad of what you did in your life to decide if you were worthy of eternal peace in the afterlife or not. However, for the Libra, this often points to their need to feel balanced in all that they do.
Libra needs balance in their life if they want to be happy, and when one area of their life is out of balance, it throws the rest off. From work to play, spending to saving, or rest to hard work, balance is a way of life for the Libra, so it only makes sense that their Zodiac symbol would reflect just that.
How does Libra season affect other signs?
Lastly, now that we’ve gone over some of the key traits and correspondences of those born under the Libra sign, we also wanted to talk about how this air sign affects the rest of the Zodiac members while we move through their sign.
With that said, while we linger in the Libra sign, a new balance wave will likely enter our life. This could have us feel more balance in general or could bring to our awareness the parts of our lives that are out of balance and encourage us to work to improve them. Either way, get ready to create more harmony in your life and stop living your life in survival mode because this air sign is sure to bring some change to the way you manage your routine.
Aside from this, the signs could also find themselves putting more of a focus on love and relationships this month, which could have them acting bolder in finding new love or could simply have them feeling a little more flirtatious than usual. This could also invoke more of a loving outlook on ourselves as well, which could have us learning to love our look and style more. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you also find yourself changing your look this month and developing your style that expresses more of who you are now.
Of course, beauty doesn’t just have to mean your attire or appearance; it could also be a love of the beauty of the things around you. As a result, this could also have the signs gravitating more towards the arts this month, learning to appreciate new beautiful things and trying to create their own beautiful pieces through the many branches of personal expression.
Next, another key energy that is likely to make its way into our lives this month is putting more of a focus on our connection with others. Since Libra is often known to be social and loves to build new connections, don’t be surprised if you find yourself seeking new friendships, relationships, or even business partnerships this month.
Libra loves to build harmony in their relationships and build strong connections with those around them, and this new social energy could allow you to learn new things, share ideas, and find new inspiration by doing so. Either way, a more social atmosphere is likely to feed your soul this month and could help you to feel more harmonious in your life as a result.
Aside from this, this month could also invite a more fair and unbiased mindset into your life. Since Libra is all about equality, if there are any prejudices you struggle with, Libra energy could ask you to work to overcome them and grow to become more fair, just, and equal in the way you think. This could have you working on yourself and could help you to undo any emotional walls you may have put up, unlearn toxic habits crafted from past emotional wounds, and become more kind, loving, and open-minded.
However, aside from all the good things Libra season brings, the signs could also face challenges with decision-making this month and may feel a little more flighty than usual. Despite how balanced they are, Libra often struggles with committing and making decisions. This also goes along with problem-solving, as Libra is great at solving everyone else’s problems but can often struggle to tackle their own, making them run in the other direction.
Therefore, if you find yourself becoming more flakey than usual this month, try to stop, take a breath, think through the pros and cons of a decision, and see if it’s best for you. This will likely help you to follow through more with your choices and can help you avoid a lot of potential drama that could come from struggling with it.
Overall, Libra season is a great time to find more balance in your life and focus on developing more meaningful connections with those closest to you. Whether you focus more on creating balance or on welcoming new ideas into your life, the Libra is sure to guide the way to the path you’re meant to be on. Open your mind and allow this mighty air sign to show you how to soar into the best version of yourself yet.
Happy Libra season!
