At the heart of Libra is love. The cultivation of loving relationships and soulful friendships are Libra’s domain. Furthermore, loving energy soothes the soul and helps restore balance.

In traditional terms, it is the idea of marriage and relationships built on equality, values, love, trust, and an ever-evolving healing union.
To activate Libra energy, relax and enjoy artistic outlets. Listen to music. Dance like no one is watching. Look at a beautiful sunset or a beautiful painting and let the beauty of the image inspire the relaxation response. Enjoy a loving experience with a close friend.
