As the sun moves into Libra on the day of the autumn equinox, we can kick the hardworking energy of Virgo season and move into something much more light and airy. Libra season is a time when relationships, both romantic and platonic, start to thrive and we focus more on human connection and less on work.
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and is often symbolized by scales. It is a cardinal air sign with positive polarity and has Venus as its ruling planet. Air signs tend to have a communicative attitude and being a cardinal sign also makes Libras more action-oriented, meaning they love to create harmony with those around them and aren't afraid to put in the work necessary to make that happen. Like the symbol of the scales, Libra is all about balance and equality. Libras are sticklers for fairness and will always try to see a situation from all sides before making their judgment. This makes them great at resolving conflicts with both opposing sides feeling as if they have won. Though they may be great at settling disagreements between others, Libras hate conflict in their own lives and avoid it at all costs. This may lead them to agree with things they don't necessarily believe just to please others. Libras tend to have a fear of being disliked and avoiding confrontation with those around them is the way they attempt to stay in everyone's good favor. Being ruled by Venus, those with a Libra placement have a natural love of beauty and pleasure, especially appreciating the beauty in other people. They make charming hosts, great friends, and loving partners. Libra is a sign that identifies with partnership and many people with this zodiac placement are at their best when in a relationship. This helps them to be balanced and have a partner in crime to share ideas and insights with.
Those with a Libra placement seek harmony and balance in all aspects of life, especially when it comes to relationships with others. They can sometimes need help achieving that balancing without sacrificing themselves in the process. Essential oils have long been used to help us complement or balance out different aspects of our mind and spirit and can be used in aromatherapy and topical applications for those purposes.
