Libra’s birthdays begin on Sept. 21 through Oct. 23. The zodiac symbol for Libra is a scale. According to, the scales are representing the balance that Libras continually seek in their self and their life. The scales are the only non-human figure in the zodiac signs.
Horoscopes at speak about Libras responding to situations with grace as they attempt to put others at ease. Mike Dunphy, a sophomore political science major, thought differently and said, “I don’t know if I’m that graceful with anything that I do.” stated that Librans can be energetic, though it is true that they dislike dirty work. Jess Jaxel, a sophomore elementary, special and early childhood education major, said, “I disagree. This summer I helped my dad lay foundation and build an entire garage.” On the other hand, Kelsey Swierczek, a senior at Sun Valley High school said, “I most likely wouldn’t be caught dead doing anything that involves getting my hands dirty.”
Horoscopes say Libras know how to be a charming host or hostess. They can sense what others want before they ask for it. They can also make the needs of others a higher priority than their own. This is a statement from horoscopes at, and Swierczek agreed. “If someone is unhappy it reflects my actions.” Swierczek also said, “I need to make any situation better if someone is unhappy, even if that means I won’t be completely satisfied.”
Dunphy said, “I think I’m pretty good at making sure that everyone has what they need. I like knowing that everyone in the room is comfortable even if I’m not.”
According to a Libra’s motto might be “To every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.” It is their innate sense of cause and effect that makes them an effective strategist.
Dunphy said, “I always thought that I wasn’t really good at having plans and stuff like that. When I was young I think I was great at knowing what I’m doing and having a plan, but not so much now.” As to “every action there is an opposite and equal reaction,” Dunphy said, “everything good happens for a reason.” continued to list characteristics of Libras. Both sexes can become great gossipers. A characteristic of the type is an insatiable curiosity that tempts them to inquire into every social scandal in their circle.
“I’m a huge gossiper even though I try not to be,” Jaxel said.
Swierczek said, “My friends say that I seem to have ears everywhere and always know everything and anything that’s going on.” But “it sometimes gets us Libras in trouble.”
