Air

Air's influence can be witnessed in the curiosity that constantly stirs inside you like a strong wind. Your "winds" seem to blow with even more purpose as you work to pursue knowledge and understanding.

The Libra's planetary ruler is Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a helping of Mercury's mysterious powers. Venus can most easily be described as the planet of harmony, which explains for your cooperative nature. In the same light, the power of Mercury can be described as the planet of communication. Mercury influences you in the realm of agile thinking and cleverness. These planets combine to make you more analytical than the other Libra Decans. Your pursuits of knowledge and understanding will always be a part of your life, as acquiring meaning gives your life purpose.
