Libras are the charmers of the Zodiac, and they thrive by being in relationship with others. As an air sign, they use logic and information to navigate connecting to other people. With an eye for aesthetics, they intuitively know how to create balance and beauty in all things.
Libra is one of the Zodiac’s four cardinal signs that shift us from one season into the next. Libra season falls on September 22nd and goes through October 23rd. The date aligns with the Autumn Equinox when we experience equal hours of day and night. As summer comes to a close and we welcome the cooler fall months, this is a time of harvest and connection.

Libras are most compatible with the air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Because they aren’t clingy, Libra feels free to be the social butterfly that they are.
