Libra (♎︎) is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac. It spans 180°–210° celestial longitude.[2] The Sun transits this sign on average between September 23 (September equinox) and October 22.[3][4] Under the lesser known sidereal zodiac, the Sun currently transits the constellation of Libra from approximately October 31 to November 22.[5] The symbol of the scales is based on the Scales of Justice held by Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom.[6] She became the inspiration for modern depictions of Lady Justice. The ruling planet of Libra is Venus.[7][8] Libra is the only zodiac constellation represented by an inanimate object; with the other eleven signs represented by either an animal or mythological character.[9]

Astrological Associations[edit]

Libra is the cardinal modality of the three air signs, the others being Gemini and Aquarius. In astrology, the main connotations of planets under this sign are sociable, rational, and detached when dealing with situations.[10] Libra is symbolized by the scales and is associated with the Roman deity Iustitia. According to the writer Manilius, Roman judges are born under the sign of Libra.[11][page needed]

The Moon was said to be in Libra when Rome was founded and this was based on the historical passage, which state 'qua condita Roma'.[12] Everything was balanced under this righteous sign.[citation needed] 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.[citation needed] Thus why the Romans put so much trust in the 'balanced sign'.[9]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.[9]

According to tropical astrology, the Sun enters Libra when it reaches the northern autumnal equinox and the southern vernal equinox, occurring around September 22.

Gemini (♊︎) /ˈɛmɪn/JEM-in-eye[2] (Latin for 'twins') is the third astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between about May 21 to June 21.[3] Under the sidereal zodiac, the sun transits this sign from about June 16 to July 16. Gemini is represented by the twins, Castor and Pollux,[4] known as the Dioscuri in Greek mythology. It is a positive, mutable sign. Gemini is associated with the Yang polarity (masculine) in the Yin Yang ancient Chinese concept. [5]

Mythology[edit]

In Babylonian astronomy, the stars Pollux and Castor were known as the Great Twins. Their names were Lugal-irra and Meslamta-ea, meaning 'The Mighty King' and 'The One who has arisen from the Underworld'. Both names are titles of Nergal, a major Babylonian god of plague and pestilence, who was king of the underworld.[6]

Free western astrology chart. In Greek mythology, Gemini is associated with the myth of Castor and Pollux. Pollux was the son of Zeus, who seduced Leda, while Castor was the son of Tyndareus, the king of Sparta and Leda's husband. When Castor died, because he was a mortal, Pollux begged his father Zeus to give Castor immortality, which was done through uniting them together in the heavens.

In popular culture[edit]

Sage the Gemini, born Dominic Wynn Woods, took his stage name from his zodiac sign Gemini and the color of his eyes.[7]

NASA named its two-person space capsule Project Gemini after the zodiac sign because the spacecraft could carry two astronauts.[8]
