The Libra symbol represents scales, which are based on the scales of justice held by Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom. This sign believes in balancing all aspects of their life and they become upset at any injustices they witness.
Libra is an air sign represented by the scales (interestingly, the only inanimate object of the zodiac), an association that reflects Libra’s fixation on balance and harmony. Libra is obsessed with symmetry and strives to create equilibrium in all areas of life.
Opposite sign and house: Aries
This is a relationship axis, where Aries and the 1st house represent “self” and Libra and the seventh house represent “other”. Where Aries-1st house is about self-assertion, Libra-7th is about compromise. People born with planets in both Aries and Libra or both the 1st and 7th need to learn the balance between these two needs.
