libra sign dates

The first full month of fall is all about getting back to the structure of your regular grind, pinning down dates

The first full month of fall is all about getting back to the structure of your regular grind, pinning down dates for get-togethers, and looking ahead to harvest celebrations and Halloween. It's Libra season. Annually, approximately between September 23 and October 22, the sun moves through the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra, symbolized by the Scales.

From the Fall Equinox into the heart of autumn, we're in full-on planning mode. After all, there's only so much left of the year, and we're motivated to make the most of it. This big picture thinking and desire to connect with others through harmonious celebration is brought to you by Libra, an air sign associated with a need to socialize and seek serenity, a love of style and romance, going to bat for justice, and the ability to create thriving partnerships at every turn. The traits are owed to Libra's ruling planet, Venus, which oversees love, beauty, art, and how you spend money.

A few style-conscious, diplomatic, artistic Libras: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Serena Williams, Brie Larson, Cardi B, Kim Kardashian, Hilary Duff, Bella Hadid, and Halsey. These celebs are astrologically influenced to use their creative and social powers, big picture thinking, and love of art and beauty to bring more balance to the world.

Here, everything you need to know about the sociable, elegant air sign.

Libra Personality Traits

Those born between September 23 and October 22 can generally assume that their sun sign is Libra. (It's not definitive, because the sun moves between signs on different days annually.) Also note that while we tend to refer to ourselves as our sun sign, it's just one detail of a natal chart, which is basically a unique snapshot of the sky when you were born. But it's a detail that helps color your core sense of self, identity, personal style, self-esteem and confidence.

The beauty lover of the zodiac

Typical sun in Libra traits include being the ultimate host of any party or get-together and having a knack for elegant personal style and sprucing up any space. They're beauty - and art-loving, adept at making big picture game plans, ambitious, and romantic. Their characteristics reflect themes covered by the Seventh House of Partnership, which Libra rules. The Seventh House oversees your one-on-one relationships — mostly with a long-term partner or spouse, but also with friends, business partners, and loved ones with whom you often connect and cooperate — and influences how you work with others, the nature of relationships you form, and how they'll shape your life.

The cardinal air sign

Every sign is assigned a quality (cardinal, mutable, or fixed), which explains the sign's basic energy. There's a cardinal, mutable, and fixed sign within every element (fire, earth, air, water). Libra is the cardinal one of the air group, which makes them visionaries who are driven to constantly generate new strategies for success. They're often brimming with bold, brilliant ideas, but follow-through can feel like a slightly uphill battle.

Libras' best personality traits:

Harmony-seeking social butterflies whose hearts are drawn to art, music, dance, and connecting with others, you can rest assured that the Libras you associate with will be on a perpetual mission to make life lighthearted, fun, and more fair. They are the designers of the zodiac, eager to take any messy space and infuse it with beauty. Similarly, they're quick to turn any conflict on its head by pushing for harmony and, in cases where the scales of justice are off-kilter, they'll pursue equity. They're the party host whose Halloween costume is impeccable and their cocktail and tapas game is even stronger; the spontaneity-embracing buddy who you can count on to join you for that group fitness class or charity event on a whim. If you're dating a Libra, they'll plan a date that's old-school romantic. Think fine dining under just-right mood lighting or taking a leisurely stroll in a beautiful, cinematic setting, like a blossom-filled local garden or park.
