What Are Libra’s Strengths?
Each sign in the zodiac possesses unique strengths, and Libra’s traits are among the friendliest and most charming.
These strengths will fill your spirit during the Libra season, allowing you to make the most of this time of balance and harmony. Ruled by Venus, Libras are drawn towards love and beauty, and these two aspects of life are high on their list of the things in life that matter.
Symbolized by the scales of justice, Libras are interested in doing what is right and ensuring that those around them aren’t being taken advantage of. And their ability to get through to nearly anyone makes it easier for them to mediate between parties.
This sign knows how to collaborate and get along with others, and it’s often thought of as the sign most capable of harmonious negotiation. Libras know how to find the middle ground necessary to create connection and understanding within relationships – whether personal or business.
Libras also possess balanced energy that helps them avoid going to extremes. While the Sun is in Libra, you can expect a more emotionally balanced approach to life, and it may become easier to face situations that previously felt insurmountable.
Their love for beauty means that Libras are almost always stylish and skilled at interior decoration. It’s unlikely that you’ll walk into the home of a Libra and not find beautiful décor and a gorgeous wardrobe.

Areas for Growth for Libra Season
Just as each sign possesses strengths, they also have weaknesses that may need attention and work, and Libra is no exception.
Because Libras crave balance and harmony, they sometimes avoid telling others a truth that they feel might cause conflict. During Libra season, you may feel like you have to keep certain thoughts and ideas to yourself to avoid upsetting those around you. Still, it’s important to remember that honesty and communication are essential.
Libra is a very flirtatious sign, and you may come across as more provocative than usual.
Try to gauge your surroundings and your audience during Libra season to avoid inappropriate behavior. While flirting is harmless, you never know who you might end up leading on when Libra’s seductive nature is highlighted!
Indecision may seem to plague you during Libra season, as its airy nature makes it harder to choose between options. Libras are analytical, and they want to think things through before making decisions. This can be frustrating when you’re on a deadline!
The Air element that rules Libra also disconnects us from grounded energy, encouraging us to spend more time with our thoughts than living in reality. Chores, exercise, reading, and other responsibilities feel much harder to accomplish during this time.
During Libra season, you may also feel:
Keeping these things in mind will help you understand more about any negative moods or experiences you might have during this Libra season.

Libra season may bring the peaceful energy needed to rebuild connections and help us get over arguments or conflicts.
Here are our best tips for getting the most out of Libra season!
1. Make New Friends & Maintain Older Connections
As the Sun flows through friendly Libra, this is the time to make new friends and reconnect with your old ones.
It’s been difficult for our global community to maintain connections through a health pandemic that calls for social distancing, but that’s what makes it more important than ever that we find new ways to bond.
Venus is the planet of love, and we can’t help but crave both romantic and platonic love during Libra Season. Fortunately, there are many ways to connect in the 21st century. If you’re single and ready to mingle, why not try online and virtual dating?
If you’re feeling lonely, call up an old friend that you haven’t talked to in a while.
Or, try scheduling a video chat with someone you recently met. Finding ways to connect with other people will start to raise your vibrations and help you feel shake off any funk that this year might have brought your way.
2. Get Involved with Your Community
Another great way to feel more connected and satisfy Libra’s craving for helping others is by getting involved with your community. This is an excellent time to volunteer for a cause you believe in, especially with the hardships we’ve faced as a global community this year (and last!).
And when the Sun transits Libra, we all have an extra spark in our personality, making it easier than ever to step outside of our comfort zone. Volunteering is an excellent way to meet new people while contributing something loving and compassionate to the world around you.
As an added bonus, you’ll sleep like a baby knowing that you’ve spent time and effort putting positive energy out there in the Universe.
3. Prepare to Compromise
Libras are known to excel at the art of debating, which may explain why so many lawyers are Libras. However, this sign is also diplomatic and proficient in negotiations. During this Libra season, you may ride the line between argumentative and compromising – as you not only want to speak your mind, but you also want to get along with others.
At the end of the day, what do we really gain from being “right” in an argument or debate? This is the time to focus more deeply on getting along and connecting with others. Try to focus on compassion over the desire to win a fight.

4. Allow Truth & Justice to Reign
The symbol associated with Libra is the scales of justice, highlighting Libra’s interest in doing the right thing and making sure others are doing the same. Libras do not stand idly by while others are being abused or mistreated – and while the Sun is in Libra, you’ll also feel compelled to stand up for those around you.
Furthermore, to make the most of Libra season and move towards growth and enlightenment, it’s important to make sure that your actions are honorable during this time. That means avoiding gossip, word vomit, or speaking negatively in general.
Words have power, and the words you put out there have an energy all their own.
If you use your words to create positivity and harness good energy, you can use this transit to create harmony and compassion all around you. Use your words to lift people up and show them that you care!
It’s also important that you honor your boundaries to infuse your relationships with love and respect. Libra is connected to the Justice card in the Tarot, symbolizing the rules and structures necessary to maintain positive, healthy relationships. So, even though you may not want to hurt someone else’s feelings, it’s crucial that you draw a line in the sand when it comes to your personal boundaries.
Honesty, openness, and being yourself wholly and authentically are the best ways to create the relationships and bonds you’ve always dreamed of – full of mutual respect and understanding.
5. Practice Self-Control
While Venus is known as the planet of beauty and love, it’s also a planet of indulgence. Venus is all about enjoying good food, delicious cocktails, expensive fashion, and terrific art. You’ll definitely experience some temptation while the Sun moves through Libra, but it’s important to remember self-control.
Working with amethyst is an excellent idea during Libra season, as it will help you amplify your willpower and say “no” to the things you don’t need.
There’s nothing wrong with indulging yourself from time to time, but if you’re not careful, Libra season can lead to a few extra pounds in the waist, painful hangovers, or an empty wallet.
Try to spend more time gathering what you need over buying what you want.
Make the Most of Libra Season 2022
The creative, harmonious, friendly energy that Libra brings to the table allows us to feel more lighthearted this Libra season. Take advantage of all this transit has to offer by focusing on doing good for the community, being compassionate with others, and expressing yourself creatively.
With a bit of focus and effort, you can make this the most exhilarating, exciting Libra season yet!
