Libra corresponds to the element of air, which is mobile and adaptable. They value beauty, balance, and intellect. During Libra Season, the Sun is shifting from the structured, controlled energy of Virgo to the balanced, relational realm of Libra.
Libra is a sign that ushers us closer to finding our true center. This might be surprising considering Libra is a mobile air sign associated with being adaptable to the point of chameleon-like. However, the sense of balance Libra helps us find isn't about the rigidity of Virgo that precedes it or the acceptance of birth/death cycles from Scorpio that follows it.
Libra’s balance is both.
Think about a big oak tree in a seasonal climate. When the weather gets too hot or too cold, the tree doesn’t go on vacation to a more temperate climate. It’s learned (over time) to adapt to its surroundings and seasons. To shed, to root, to wait, to bloom.
Nature (and Libras) adapt to the circumstances they’re in, without giving up their ground. And somehow, they even manage to do it with grace. That is what's possible when we’re truly rooted in our own sense of being but not so rigid that we’ve forgotten our place in the cosmic scales.
