Libra ♎

A light and gentle sky. Libra, the second Air sign, is light. With Venus as its ruling planet, it is aligned to beauty and seeks balance and harmony. Charming, tranquil, and defined through relationship, it prefers a safer more diplomatic, neutrality opposed to a definitive, bolder, irrevocable tone. Connected to the intellect and the arts, particularly music, there’s culture, refinement and grace. Libra is a beautifully light and gentle sky streaked with an occasional songbird. Its color is pale blue .
