Zodiac: Libra, The Seventh House
Libra is the seventh astrological sign, making it the seventh house of the zodiac. The period of Libra’s reign falls between September 23rd and October 23rd, but this date can vary depending on your source. Libra is symbolised by the balanced scales and falls under the element of air, making those born under the sign incredibly social and fair in their judgement. It is ruled by the planet Venus and as the seventh house of the zodiac, it represents our partnerships.
Those born under Libra are incredibly social and thrive in the company of others - if there’s one thing that a Libra hates, it’s being alone. Libra signs are all for partnerships, and work better in a couple than they do when they go solo. They value equality and fairness and have mastered the art of compromise, making them the perfect partner. They will try to see all points of view, even when it’s difficult.
Libras are represented by the scales for a reason, they seek balance and harmony in all aspects of their lives. They treat everyone fairly and believe strongly in the saying ‘innocent until proven guilty’. They believe strongly in having a fair trial and can always be found backing the underdog.
Libra signs are the go-tos when you need to partner up with someone you trust. They are incredibly sincere and reliable and don’t believe in offloading work on others - everything is done equally or it’s not going to work. With a Libra, you can ensure that the job will be done to its highest standards.
On the downside, because of their fair nature and a need for balance and justice, Libras can be extremely indecisive at times. This often comes down to their ability to see things from every angle, they never know which side of path to choose. They can also be easily swayed. To put it simply, Libra are always changing their mind!
Libra is ruled by the element of air and this is very obvious in their character. You will often find Libras ‘with their head in the clouds’, daydreaming about the next big thing and letting their imaginations run wild. Although their imagination is one of their biggest talents, they are known for being rather flighty and unreliable because of it.
As the seventh house in astrology, Libra represents partnerships in your life, whether that be life partners or even business partners, and also your relationship with those around you. It's all about the way your relate to other people in your life and the value you place on your relationships with others. This house represents all aspects of partnerships, such as, marriage, business deals and contracts.
As we are all aware some signs are more compatible together than others. Every sign represents a different type of personality, and sometimes those personalities clash. Libras are more compatible with other air signs Gemini and Aquarius, and fire signs Leo and Sagittarius. They are least compatible with water signs Cancer and Scorpio and earth sign Virgo.
