Balance, Justice, Truth, Beauty, Perfection

The Sun is in Libra between about 24th September and 23rd October.

If the Sun was in Libra when you were born, you want everything to be harmonious and peaceful. You dislike anything rough or crude, and like your surroundings to be balanced and tasteful . Most of all, you want everything to be fair. You refuse to make snap judgements. Librans are often wrongly called indecisive, but you are merely determined to consider a question from all sides before making a decision; then you surprise everyone with firm action.

Whatever your Sun sign, if your Ascendant is Libra, then relationships with other people are going to be high on your list of priorities. When you leave home of a morning, you set out to be affable and to greet everyone with a smile. You love a social gathering, and you'll bend over backwards to keep the peace and avoid causing offence. Just sometimes, you may need to put tact and diplomacy on one side, and realise you can't always be all things to all men.
