Crystals For Libra
If you were born from September 23rd to October 22nd, you are a Libra.
The middle of the harvest happens to be the time of the zodiac sign Libra. Librans are very strong-willed, artistic, sensitive, and respectful people. They are very understanding and actively listen to other people's point of view. If there is an issue or problem they like to solve it by finding a balance or compromise. We can call this the sign of Partnership with a capital 'P' because these folks do not want to be alone! For a Libra, everything is better if it's done as a pair. Libras are good when paired up, too, since they epitomize balance, harmony and a sense of fair play. While they are true team players at work, their favorite partnership is at home: marriage. Libras feel most complete when they are coupled up with their lover, forever.

It's the Scales that symbolize Libra, and just like that balancing mechanism wants to stay even, Libras want to be on an even keel. Think of the Scales of Justice and how they work at striking the right balance. Likewise, Libras are objective, just and want to do what's best for everyone. It's possible, though, that this penchant for fairness is for a different reason: Libras abhor conflict. The scales study every possible angle in the hopes of achieving peace and harmony, so much so that others may see them as fickle and indecisive. If that's what it takes to avoid a confrontation, that's fine with the Scales.
The traditional stone for those born under the Libra star sign is Peridot. Peridot is used as a healing stone and is very effective in balancing the energy of the Heart Chakra. These crystals help focus and enhance our early efforts to seek wisdom, lighting our path to understanding. Peridot with its Olive is the color ray of receptiveness to new meanings and ideas. It is an excellent crystal help you in the beginning of a search for knowledge and enlightenment. Peridot can also help mend past emotional wound and aid us to move on from them. It is very efficient in alleviating jealousy, resentment, and anger.
Jade is another traditional stone for Libra. It comes in two forms, Jadeite and Nephrite. They are similar in appearance but have different composition. Since Jadeite has brilliant colors in it, it is thought to be the real Jade. This stone also happens to be a symbol of love. Some people give their lovers this stone to show their devotion. When Jade is being used it helps bring you wisdom and balance. Black Jade protects from negative energies and helps keeps the peace of mind. Jade is a Guardian Harmonizer crystal. In the physical world they are excellent aids in protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. They are very useful in protecting houses and homes, property, and valuables. In the spiritual world, the Guardian crystals have several special uses. They first serve to guard your beliefs against doubt. Everyone at some point begins to doubt some of his or her most cherished beliefs.
