If you are expecting a baby between September 23 and October 22, your child's star sign is Libra. Librans strive for balance and harmony, so it's no accident that this star sign is represented by the only non-living symbol of the zodiac, a set of scales.

Librans are the great romantics of the zodiac, seeking out close bonds and thriving from partnerships of all kinds. They often find it difficult to be alone and love to be the centre of attention though they use their allure wisely, with kindness and fairness at the heart of interactions. They also have the skills of a diplomat, their ability to see all sides of a situation and maintain peace under pressure one of their key attributes.

Your baby Libran will attach closely to their primary caregiver and cry if they sense disharmony in the household. As children they will form a close knit smaller group of friends despite a wider popularity among their school cohort.

They are wonderful, generous friends, though selective about who they get very close to. They are also masterful at smoothing over tensions and organising others, and can often be found setting up teams and communicating game rules to willing and attentive followers.

Libra is an air sign along with Gemini and Aquarius, representing the ages of 42-49 and the maturity of mid-life. With their fully developed personalities, it is a primary purpose in life to be part of a duo. This star sign is ruled by Venus, making them romantic, considerate partners who idealise their loved one. 

Libras are a true delight. You'll always have a kind, loyal companion who is a great conversationalist and who is the absolute life of the party. So what should you name your little Libran?
