THE SIGN OF LIBRA, THE BALANCE
Ruling Planets, Venus and Saturn
Number 6; Day, Friday; Jewels, the Opal, Coral and Lapis Lazuli; Color, Blue; Special Mascot, the Seal of Solomon.
The Sun enters this Sign about September 23rd and leaves it on October 23rd.
As a symbol of the Sign we have the Scales or Balance of Justice, and it is the only one in the Zodiac not represented by a living creature. The Scales, it is said, represent Astrea, the goddess of Justice, who dwelt upon Earth till the wickedness of mortals made her fly from it in horror, on which she was placed among the Constellations in the Heavens. She is another form of the Deity the Egyptians worshiped as Isis, and the Greeks as Ceres, Cybele or Vesta, but always she stood for wisdom and benevolence.
Libra is the middle one of the Airy Signs, the others being Gemini and Aquarius, and thus those under its influence have restlessness in their nature and are fond of travel and change. They are sensitive and artistic, usually possessing great personal charm. A sense of justice is born in them, as their keen intuitions enable them to see both sides of a question. They have strong occult powers, though these may be latent for lack of development. The true Seers, the men and women with the Second Sight, the Hypnotists and the Mesmerists, are the true Libra type.
Those born early in October have more caution than the others, whose birth dates fall later in the month, while those whose birth dates are after the 12th have a strong sense of humour, and often, not always, great descriptive powers.
