Under the lesser known sidereal zodiac, the Sun currently transits the constellation of Libra from approximately October 31 to November 22.

Manilius once said that Libra was the sign 'in which the seasons are balanced'. Both the hours of the day and the hours of the night match each other. Thus why the Romans put so much trust in the 'balanced sign'.Going back to ancient Greek times, Libra the constellation between Virgo and Scorpio used to be ruled over by the constellation of Scorpio. They called the area the Latin word 'chelae', which translated to 'the claws' which can help identify the individual stars that make up the full constellation of Libra, since it was so closely identified with the Scorpion constellation in the sky.

Both names are titles of Nergal, a major Babylonian god of plague and pestilence, who was king of the underworld.
