Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and is most often symbolised by the Scales. Libra is one of the three Air signs. The other two air signs are Gemini and Aquarius. Libra is positive in polarity in the same way as Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius. Since Libra is positive in polarity this tends to make them come across as extroverts and Libra has an outgoing personality. Libra is not regarded as being either withdrawn or highly sensitive.
The term Libra comes from the Latin word for ‘balance’ or ‘scales’ and Libra is therefore is often depicted in this manner. Since early times Libra has been closely linked to the idea of judgement in this life and the next. This idea has been retained in our own world and this is evident in statues of a female figure (Libra in this case) holding aloft the scales of judgement outside of legal courts in cities throughout the West.
In the zodiac the opposite sign to Libra is Aries. Signs in opposition to each other can learn from each other mutually and from Aries Libra can learn to fend for themselves more successfully.
