Starting right at the fall equinox, those born between September 22-October 23 are Libras, the Scales of the zodiac. The seventh zodiac sign, Libras are an empathetic bunch who are obsessed with the idea of goodness. They can often feel shame for being unhappy, because they know that their unhappiness can spill out and affect those around them.
Known for being flighty and dichotomous, it can be hard for other star signs (and other Libras, for that matter) to get a read on their true personality. To be honest, it can be hard for them to get a read on themselves, because they shy away from vulnerabilities. So, how should you go about finding the perfect Libra gift?
Well, turns out, despite these pitfalls, it's not all that difficult! Ruled by Venus, this ethereal air sign has aesthetics to envy and they adore all things that will help them on their quest for external validation. If you know your fair share of Libras, you'll already know that their love language is receiving gifts! Holiday or birthday gifts––if the gift tag has their name on it, it's a good day. This gift guide showcases some of the best gift ideas for this gift-loving sign!
