If you were born (roughly) between September 23rd to October 22nd, the sun could be viewed in the constellation of Libra. You'll want to check an almanac, especially if you are born near the edge of this time frame.
Gifts and Shortcomings
- Your most likable trait: Charm
- Your least likable trait: Ego
With their straightforward and enchanting charisma, Librans are easy to like. You possess an elegant loveliness and a gift for helping others feel welcome and important. You are perceptive and a great listener, with a knack for smoothing over unpleasantness. You, Libra, are a born charmer.
On the other hand, you have the potential to become easy prey for a con-person with an amiable manner. A charming facade fools you every time. You tend to judge others by their surface appearance and you have no motivation to dig deeper into a potentially hidden agenda.
You like new projects, unusual individuals, unique ideas, and you'll travel anywhere. Gifted with originality, poise, and passion, you have an open, freethinking mind that tries to assess the world calmly and rationally.
Even so, you are likely to underachieve in many of your undertakings simply for lack of wanting anything badly enough. The exception is if you are denied something you feel entitled too: that moves you into action.
Libra is the zodiacal sign of partnership. You relate harmoniously with good-natured people, especially those who will laugh in the face of challenges. Your energies are often directed outward, toward other people. You are at your best in personal relationships: you simply are not a loner. Like a magnet, you pull others toward you. You have an innate understanding other peoples' emotions and you intuitively take into consideration another person's point of view.
At heart, you are a narcissist. You remember every compliment ever paid to you and you expect admiration wherever you go. You want to be the jewel at the center of any setting. While Libra is the zodiacal sign of partnership, your main focus is yourself. Whether it's a relationship between partners, lovers, family, friends, business associates, or even guests at a party, all outside viewpoint will eventually be lost or swallowed up into your own subtly self-centered concerns.
The Inner You
At Libra's center is a person who doesn't feel complete. You suffer from imposters syndrome, spending much of your time concerned that you're the con-person. You often worry that you've tricked others into thinking you're smart or successful and you fret that they'll discover the fraud you think you are. Libra's hidden secret? A shaky self-confidence, and this insecurity certainly stems from your sense that something is missing and the false front you've created. If you could just lighten up and not be so hard on yourself, you'd be much more satisfied with what you do achieve. You have every ingredient for happiness!
Because you are desperate for love and approval, you trust others and put their needs above your own. You have trouble saying no and end up taking on too many commitments. Then, you hide your resentment with by smiling through the strain. Invest your time in building your self-esteem and stop looking to others to validate you.
You strive for peace and harmony, and as a result, you struggle with making decisions, despite your impeccable instincts. In an effort to please everyone else, you misunderstand and misrepresent your own feelings. You are constantly balancing the pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages, with no clear understanding of the best way to proceed. Because of this, you are seen as indecisive, constantly teetering on the edge, and waffling between choices.
How Others See You
People are often surprised at your wide range of interests because you tend to hide your superior intellect below pleasing, easygoing facade. You are considered warm and outgoing because you know how to draw people out. People feel important when they're with you because you always seem to understand their point of view. However, because you want others' approval, you tend to go along with what they want — and this sometimes makes you look weak. To some people, you also seem vain and materialistic because you appear overly concerned with your appearance and things.
The goddess of love and beauty rules your sun sign. You adore loveliness of all kinds: music, art, decoration, and people. Your home is a vision of sweetness and elegance. You surround yourself with decadent, extravagant and expensive objects and luxuries such as flowers, champagne, jewelry and clothing. You enjoy the things money can buy, as these are the ornaments of life to you. In fact, your love of things makes it difficult for you to hold onto money. You have a god head for money, but a weakness for luxury.
Your love for beauty may lead you to a careers in art, decorating, stage, and composing. You appreciate talent in any field, particularly art, literature, or music, and if you lack talent yourself you regularly take pleasure in artistic hobbies. However, you usually remain a dabbler who enjoy the reward while avoiding the hassle required to achieve anything substantial. Basically frivolous, Librans dislike hard work, unless done by someone else.
If life were a play, you'd always insist on a happy ending. You try to balance and harmonize all areas of your life and are happiest when everything is neat and ordered. You hate anything unpleasant or vulgar, so you go out of your way—sometimes putting your own feelings aside—to avoid conflict or hurt feelings. A born diplomat, you have a keen ability to see both sides of an argument and a skill for solving disputes without friction.
Librans have a reputation for stubbornness, but this is only because you care so strongly about fairness. You resent being treated harshly and become upset at inequity in the world at large. One of your strengths is your sense of justice. But it seems to only come out in a crisis situation, when you are most courageous.
Boil it down...
You are an habitual idealist and model romantic. Warmhearted, affectionate, sentimental, naturally optimistic, you do everything in your power to please. Your equipment is charm.
