The middle of the harvest happens to be the time of the Zodiac sign Libra.
The astrological symbol that represents this zodiac sign is a balance beam, also referred to as The Balance. This is due to the factor that during this month the days and nights are equal length, and the Earth and Sun are in balance.
Librans are very strong-willed, artistic, sensitive, and respectful. They are really understanding and actually listen to other people's point of view. If there is an issue or problem they like to solve it by compromising. All they want to do is what's best for everyone.
Libras try to relate to other people and say the right thing as much as possible so they can make them feel comfortable. They are determined to accomplish goals no matter how hard it will be to succeed. If you try to prove a Libra's opinion wrong you better watch out. These people do not tolerate arguments or challenges from anyone.
When a Libran finds their true lover, this is the moment where they feel most complete. They love beautiful things such as the outdoors, charming partners, and just life itself. With their loving and caring attitudes and characteristics you better be careful or that love bug will bite you.
