Libra is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Libra. It is considered an air sign and is one of four cardinal signs. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus (which also rules Taurus). Being the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra has been associated with the astrological seventh house.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Libra individuals. The Sun enters Libra on the moment of Autumnal Equinox by definition, or around September 22, leaving it around October 24.
Libra, also known as "The Scales" or "Balance", is the only symbol of the zodiac that is represented by an inanimate object, rather than an animal or human.
