Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac. It follows Virgo in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Libra covers the time from September 22nd until October 22nd.
It is a time of partnership and alliances. It is associated with decisions to join other people in partnerships, teamwork ventures, and cooperation.
A time of cooperation & compromise
In mundane matters, Libra is concerned with diplomacy, negotiation, relationships, unity, projected energy, marriage, and the need to deal with other people's views and agendas.
The Zodiacal symbol for Libra is the Scales. Libra is the Cardinal Air sign. Air signs are intellectual, communicative, sociable, and inventive. Cardinal signs are proactive and initiating. They handle life's problems by taking action to change circumstances ... and create new conditions.
Libra is a Cardinal Sign
The other Cardinal Signs are Cancer, Capricorn, and Aries. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Libra.
The other Air signs are Gemini and Aquarius. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Libra.
Libra is an Air Sign
Traditionally, Libra is compatible with Gemini and Aquarius, other Libras, Leo and Sagittarius. Leo and Sagittarius bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Libra.
On the other hand, a match between Libra and Cancer or Libra and Capricorn carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Libra and Aries will require well-defined territories for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Aries / Libra relationships can be kind of a mixed blessing.
Summing up Libra
