Libra Dates of Birth
Is Your Zodiac Sign Really Libra?
Ephemeris, table of planetary positions, from the Renaissance.
The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Libra starts on September 23 and ends on October 23, but that's just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.
Here are the leap years of the last century:
If you were born on the 23rd of September or the 23rd of October, you have to check if you're really a Libra or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of Libra is on the 22nd or 23rd of September, and the end of it on the 23rd or 24th of October. People born on other dates need not be concerned.
Zodiac Sign CalculatorIf you're unsure of your Zodiac sign, or if you want to know on what degree (between 0° and 30°) of the sign the sun was at your birth, please visit the Zodiac sign calculator. It's very easy to use, and then you'll know for sure. Here it is:
Cusp or notIf you were born on September 22nd or 23rd, your sun may be on the very cusp (the starting point) of Libra, or right by the end of Virgo. If you were born on the 23rd or 24th of October, your sun might be at the very end of Libra or at the cusp of Scorpio. You need to check the Zodiac sign calculator (see the link above) or your exact horoscope, because on those dates it depends on what time of day you were born - and in what place.
It's particularly important with this check If you were born far away from Greenwich, England, since that's the base for the dates given for Libra.
You can get your exact complete horoscope computed for free on several websites. Go here to find instructions and links to them: Your own complete horoscope.
If your sun is at the very end of Libra, you may show personality traits of both Libra and Scorpio, but If you were born at the very start of Scorpio, no matter how early in it, you're most definitely a Scorpio.
That's because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.
DecansThe strongest is not equal to the most typical, though. A Zodiac sign is its most typical at the part of it (decan) corresponding to its quality: cardinal, fixed or mutable. Each Zodiac sign is one of the four elements fire, earth, air, and water. It's also one of the three qualities. So, four elements and three qualities make twelve possible combinations.
Libra is the cardinal air sign. That means its most typical part is the first one - the ten degrees making its first decan, 1°-10° Libra. That corresponds approximately to the dates September 23-October 2. If your birth date is within this range, you're likely to be a very typical Libra.
If you were born on early October, the 3rd to 12th, you're still a Libra, but with character traits comparable to those of Aquarius (the fixed air sign). If you were born on October 13-23. you have some tendencies similar to those of Gemini (the mutable air sign).
But the most important thing to decide is what sign you are. So, If you were born on September 22nd-23rd or October 23rd-24th, please check with the Zodiac sign calculator (see the link above) or get your complete horoscope to be sure of your star sign.
