The Libra symbol, or glyph, is the only non-living symbol and is designed to depict the Scales. This is the Libra horoscope symbol and the character that represents this zodiac sign.
Each zodiac sign has a special symbol, or glyph, that’s associated with the mythology behind it. For example, Sagittarius is ruled by the mythical Centaur—the Archer—so its glyph resembles an arrow pointed skyward. Libra is symbolized by the Scales of justice and is the only non-living symbol. Almost all of the 12 zodiac signs are depicted by an animal, with the exception of Gemini, Virgo and Libra. The Libra symbol also has a unique meaning.
What is the Libra symbol?
The Libra horoscope symbol is the Scales. The Libra sign symbol is usually depicted as scales that are weighed in order to produce balance and harmony. Libra dates typically fall from September 23 to October 22. Partnership, romance, balance and fairness are the main Libra traits. Thus, the Libra symbol of the Scales expresses the fairness and equality of this zodiac sign. As a lofty air sign and a trendsetting cardinal sign, Libra is the romantic idealist of the zodiac, the sign that can be known for acting overly-indulgent at times, but also strives for fairness and equal give and take.
To remember the Libra symbol, here’s a handy chart of zodiac symbols:
Although there is a standard symbol used to depict each zodiac sign, Libra signs and symbols can vary based on the artist who renders it. You may see different Libra symbols, spanning from the simple Libra glyph of the Scales, to a full-on detailed drawing of the Scales of justice themselves.
Libra is ruled by Venus, which has a symbol of its own. The Venus symbol is simply depicted by a Spirit (circle) over matter (cross), placing emphasis on feelings and sensuality over rational thought.
