The Libra Zodiac Sign in Astrology
The Libra horoscope sign, the Scales, is the seventh sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. It belongs to the element air and the cardinal quality. Libra is the sign of ethics and justice, insisting on laws that make sense and everybody obeying them. That way, the Libra Zodiac sign the conscience of the horoscope.
The symbol of the Libra horoscope sign is the scales, just like it is for justice and its personification Justitia. Justice is a question of balance, in some way, when facts and circumstances are to be judged properly. Balance is also a horoscope characteristic of the Libra Zodiac sign, who constantly strives to reach and maintain it.
Libra is also the horoscope sign representing the joining of two, not just in marriage, but in business, politics, and so on. The Libra astrological sign corresponds to the 7th House, which is about all such matters.
Venus is said to be the horoscope ruler of the Libra Zodiac sign, which means that the planet is particularly powerful in that sign. It also suggests that Libra's quest for justice and balance is a benevolent one, although not always sensitive to different needs of others.
Mercury exalts in the Libra horoscope sign, so that planet, too, is enforced in this sign. In the horoscope, Mercury carries the ability to communicate and to pursue the thought stream of the conscious mind. These things are certainly necessary in the pursuit of justice.
Those with Libra as their horoscope Zodiac sign are born with the sun in it, between September 23 and October 23. For more about Libra and its influence in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left.

Libra CompatibilityThe Libra horoscope sign, the conscience, belongs to the element air, which is that of thought and reasoning. So do Gemini and Aquarius, but that doesn't necessarily mean Libra is particularly compatible with them - they need to come to some agreement and feel mutual appreciation. Nor for that matter is the Libra Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, although they are quite different.
All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Libra horoscope sign here:
