Were you born on October 19th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Libra, the sign of the Scales. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Libra. Let's explore the basics of your horoscope and dive into the traits and characteristics that define you.

Libra Overview

Libra, also known as "measuring scale" in Sanskrit, is characterized by its symbol, planetary ruler, element, nature, and gender. As a Libra, you possess a unique blend of balanced judgment and selfish tendencies. You are ruled by Venus, the planet associated with sensuality, fine food, the arts, and affairs of the home. Your curious and imaginative nature stems from being an air sign. Being a movable sign, you embrace change and spontaneity. Your masculine energy makes you bold and thick-skinned. Diamond is your preferred gemstone, although white sapphire and white topaz can also bring you benefits.

Traits of the Sun in Libra

In Western Astrology, your sign is determined by the position of the Sun at the time of your birth. As a Libra born on October 19th, you possess certain general traits associated with this Sun sign. However, it's important to consider other factors in your birth chart that can modify these characteristics.

You may feel restless and indecisive, often torn between multiple paths in life. Social settings might make you uncomfortable due to your diplomatic and refined nature. On the positive side, you have a penchant for frequent travel and adaptability. Challenges in self-confidence, vigor, and enthusiasm may arise, leading to a sense of frustration. Be mindful of not overindulging in romantic pursuits and seek inner fulfillment instead. With your flexible personality, you easily connect with people from diverse circles.

Libra Careers

Libra individuals thrive in professions that offer a certain degree of independence. When working for themselves, they can be highly enterprising. Careers such as law, academia, medicine, artistry, and design align well with your refined and intelligent nature. However, you may struggle working for others, especially those who lack intelligence or organization. Selfless service roles may not provide the recognition you desire.

Libra Mantras

Mantras hold the power to uplift and cleanse our minds, hearts, and consciousness. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience relief from suffering and negativity. Librans can benefit from meditating with the mantra "ॐ परषुरामाय नमः" (Om parashuramaya namaha). Additionally, the universal maha-mantra "हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे" (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare) can benefit individuals born in any zodiac sign.
