Libras, it’s your season! According to astrology, the sun transits this sign from approximately September 23 to October 23. Interestingly, Libra is the only zodiac sign represented by an object as the rest are represented by an animal or mythological creature. The scales, which emphasize Libras preference for balance, are based on those of Themis, the ancient Greek Titaness of divine law and custom. This fixation on balance and order make Libras great decorators, stylists or judges. While Libras are praised for being fair and avoiding conflict, their need to weigh all the pros and cons of a situation tends to backfire on them. Their indecisiveness can lead to no decision made at all. Famous Libras include Will Smith, Fran Drescher, John Mayer and Kim Kardashian.
