Were you born on October 6th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Libra, the sign of the Scales. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Libra. Let's delve into the basics of your horoscope.

Libra Overview

Libra is known as "measuring scale" or तूला (tula) in Sanskrit. Like every other zodiac sign, Libra has its unique characteristics, including its symbol, planetary ruler, element, nature, and gender. Here's a breakdown of the general makeup of the Libra sign:

  • Sign of the Scales: Libra natives are known for their balanced and judicious nature, although they can sometimes be somewhat selfish.
  • Ruled by Venus: Venus is the planet of sensuality, fine food, the arts, and affairs of the home. Libras are fond of luxury and living the good life.
  • An air sign: People with a Libra moon are imaginative, logical, and curious.
  • A movable sign: Those born under this sign are fluid, spontaneous, and embrace change.
  • A masculine sign: This gives Libra natives an aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned disposition.
  • Preferred gemstone: Libra's preferred gemstone is the diamond, but they can also benefit from white sapphire and white topaz.

Traits of the Sun in Libra

In Western Astrology, a person's zodiac sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on October 6th, then you're considered a Libra according to most people in the Western world. The influence of the Sun in a birth chart can vary depending on various factors, but here are some general traits commonly found in individuals with the Sun in Libra:

  • Restlessness: Of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, Libra is the weakest for the Sun. Ruled by the Sun's enemy, Venus, Libra is a sign of diplomacy and refinement. People born under this sign often feel uncomfortable in social settings and may struggle with indecisiveness.
  • Frequent Travel: One advantage of this planetary placement is the opportunity for frequent travel, which Libras tend to enjoy. It's unlikely for them to settle in their birthplace as they grow older.
  • Frustrations in Life: The Sun represents self-confidence, vigor, and enthusiasm. When the Sun is in Libra, natives may face challenges in these areas and encounter various obstacles. However, these challenges can also serve as motivation for detachment and spiritual exploration.
  • Excessive Desire for Sex: Libras should be cautious not to over-indulge in romantic pursuits. Short-term pleasures cannot compensate for inner feelings of deficiency, low self-esteem, or boredom. Through practices like yoga and meditation, especially bhakti-yoga, Libras can achieve mastery over their mind and senses and find enlightenment in their lifetime.
  • Social Skills: Libras have a flexible personality and know how to adapt to any situation. They easily fit into different groups and may find themselves belonging to diverse circles.

Libra Careers

Librans thrive in professions that allow a certain degree of independence. When working for themselves, they can be very enterprising. Here are some recommended careers for Libra natives:

  • Lawyers
  • Judges
  • Doctors
  • Academics
  • Artists
  • Poets
  • Sculptors
  • Designers
  • Architects

On the other hand, Librans may have a hard time working for others, especially if their superiors are less intelligent or organized. It is advisable for Libras to avoid careers that require selfless service or offer little recognition, such as secretaries, janitors, plumbers, or mechanics.

Libra Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. It is a powerful tool to relieve suffering and negativity. Librans can benefit from meditating with specific mantras, such as:

ॐ परषुरामाय नमः (Om parashuramaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras that are effective for different people according to their particular situation. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
