The season of balance is here ~ Happy Birthday Libra! Today the Sun moves into the sign of Libra and it’s also the Autumnal Equinox, the time of year that ushers in cooler weather and shorter days for the Northern Hemisphere, and more light south of the Equator. Libra energy is harmonious, peaceful and balanced, charming, artistic and elegant. The symbol for Libra is the scales, and the next few weeks will have us seeking balance in all areas of our life, weighing out our choices and deciding what is right and wrong for us. Libra is also the house of partnerships, interpersonal relationships and romance. Libra wants everyone to be happy, they are natural diplomats and peacekeepers, and they’re one of the most likable signs. They are optimistic but struggle with making decisions. A wonderful crystal for Libra is Tourmaline. This stone’s energy is said to provide support for the choices Libras make so they can feel confident in their decisions. If your sun sign is not Libra, tourmaline is still useful because the zodiac energy of each sign surrounds us based on the time of the year.
