Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and it's at this point in the zodiac that we start to see a shift. While the first six signs of the zodiac focus on the individual, the last six focus on the individual's contact with others and with the world.
Libra I: The Week of the PERFECTIONIST Sep 25 - Oct 2
LIBRA I's are often highly attractive personalities, yet they are not overly social ones. This can create problems for them, for although they have a great need for the limelight, they have a greater need to spend time alone. Many born in this week are not really cut out for public life at all, and some of them may give up a socially oriented career to spend more time on personal, private, anonymous enterprises. Indeed it's not uncommon for those born in this week to work a quite ordinary job, while devoting their real interest and energy to hobbies or other part-time endeavors.
Strengths: Attractive - Exacting - Cool
Weaknesses: Indecisive - Scathing - Repressed

LIBRA II - The Week of SOCIETY October 3 - 10: The paradox about those born in this week is that although their social skills are highly developed, they may really be loners by nature. Their knowledge of current events, fashions and matters concerning lifestyle is impressive, and family and friends usually consult them as to the choice of materials or methods to get the job done in the most tasteful way possible. Constantly in demand, LIBRA II's often have difficulty finding time for themselves, and at some point must learn how to limit the time and energy they are prepared to give.
Strengths: UP-TO-DATE - FAIR - INSIGHTFUL
Weaknesses: COMPLACENT - SEVERE - SELF-DECEIVING

ADVICE: Try to find your true heart's desire. Once you have found it, remember to show you really care. Don't always give things away - hold on to what is most valuable in yourself. Learn to limit your explorations of interesting but distracting subjects that can sidetrack you from your main purpose. Make some hard choices, but preserve your dreams and visions.

LIBRA III - The Week of THEATER October 11-18
If "all the world's a stage," as Shakespeare wrote, then Libra III's are some of the finest players upon it. Acting out the drama of their own lives in everyday affairs is a specialty of those born in this week. Libra III's know the value of image in their professional lives and spend a lot of time working on how they present themselves to the world. Their detachment, even coolness, may sometimes irritate or infuriate those around them, but it is misleading; if they seem to lack affect, this is usually a result of a studied and rigorous training they put themselves through. Libra III's are actually very emotional people.
Strengths: WORLDLY - HARD-DRIVING - KNOWLEDGEABLE
Weaknesses: UNHEEDING - BLAMING - OVERCONFIDENT
Advice: Beware of making promises you can't keep. Consider carefully the possible repercussions of your actions. Sometimes it is necessary to play at a part but don't kid yourself in the process. Be more considerate of the feelings of others; devote sufficient time and patience to emotional matters.

LIBRA-SCORPIO CUSP - The Cusp of DRAMA and CRITICISM, October 19-25
Big personalities, those born on the Libra-Scorpio cusp may prove too much for anyone to handle. Their influence can not only dominate their immediate circle but go far beyond it; that influence is surely personal,for these charismatic individuals, but also often intellectual, since their ideas are well thought out and highly developed. Libra-Scorpios usually have something to say on almost any subject. Their penchant for preaching from the pulpit makes them well suited to be teachers, whether professionally or informally, and their students usually come to depend heavily on them for guidance.
LIBRA-SCORPIO CUSP: Those born on the cusp meld the airy (mental) nature of Libra and the watery (emotional) characteristics of Scorpio - not always an easy task. These two aspects of their personality are often at war, with the head guiding and the heart denying, or vice-versa. Libra-Scorpios can get into a real mess with themselves when their intellectual and emotional natures clash. Periods of Libra indecision may be broken by outbursts of Scorpio aggression, and self-assured Scorpio determination and control may be undermined by Libra procrastination and love of repose. The tensions and disappointments of life can at times prove too much for them, such that they retreat into isolation. Thus Libra-Scorpios benefit from physical exercise, fitness training, sound diets and all activities that promote healthy contact with the world, and relationships and activities that lessen their tendency to isolate themselves from the world, will prove beneficial to them.
Advice: Try to relax and have fun. Learn to be less picky. Do not cut yourself off from unusual experiences but maintain your poise and balance. Continue to battle with life and resist escapism or the throes of self-pity. Leave the past behind and embrace the future. Cynicism and sarcasm are poison to you.;
Strengths: SENSUOUS - CHARISMATIC - ARTISTIC
Weaknesses: OVERCRITICAL - ADDICTIVE - RIGID
