Libra is one of the 12 constellations that are found between the sun and the plants. All these 12 constellations are collectively called as the road to the sun. These have been studied and understood for thousands of years and people have figured out ways to connect the movement of the plants to predict the happenings of the future and other possible truths of the world. People born between September 23 and October 23 are put under the zodiac sign of Libra. The lives and personality of people born under this zodiac sign is greatly affected by the movement of the planets over all. Understanding your Libra personality can make things and decisions in life very easy.

The symbol of every astrological sign has a great impact on the overall behavior and personality of any Libra person. It is the only star sign out of the 12 that has an inanimate object as a symbol. All other star signs are either represented by an animal or a living being but Libra is represented by a weight scale with one side heavier than the other. It is a very meaningful sign as it represents the balance in the life of a Libra person.

Any star sign can have his personality and life affected by the gemstones and charms that he wears. These gemstones have certain energies connected to them that affect the everyday life of the wearer. That is why even today many people strongly believe in wearing lucky charms due to the proved effects calculated in ages of gemstone evolution. There are many Birthstones that are believed to have very strong effects on Libra people, but the most important ones include Opal and Lapis Lazuli.


Opal is a very beautiful stone that is found in relatively lower temperature zones of the world. The stone is found in a precious and semi-precious form. The precious opals have a capacity to play with light; this means that the stone changes color when it is moved under white light making it looks more beautiful and attractive. It is very easy to detect an opal even at the first sight due to its eye catching beauty and attractiveness. This stone has many beneficial and positive effects on the person wearing it. Although it is the stone related to zodiac sign of Libra, it is also the October birthstone according to the charts made for birthstones by months.

Lapis Lazuli:

Lapis Lazuli is a semi-precious gemstone that is beautiful blue in color. This gemstone is found mostly in the areas of Afghanistan. It also has found its value in exports all around the world, especially Europe because of its beautiful blue color that is used to make blue hue for paints etc. This stone is also believed to have certain very strong effects on the overall well-being of a person.

One of the very strange fact about opal is the false belief that somehow this stone is connected to the bad luck, in fact this believe was relatively new and was totally based on a fictional novel. People started believing that opal is a bad stone and the opal market crashed within a very short period of time. But this does not mean that people could not understand the real positive effects of the stone of their personality. Maybe that is the reason why people still buy the stone as a lucky charm and wear it religiously to reap all the benefits out of it.

But one must thing why this beautiful stone that has been proven to be the bringer of good luck considered to be associated with the bad luck, well this happened practically when people did not understand the special conditions that are required for the stone and how the stone was to be cut properly. At times the jewelers will end up breaking the stone because of their lack of experience in working with the stone and this was considered bad luck for the jeweler. But overall this stone has many positive effects especially on the people born under the star sign Libra.

People have believed in the powers of opal for a very long time. In the middle Ages, blonde women who loved their hair and didn’t want them to change hue used to wear an opal around their neck. Also the stone was once believed to be so powerful that it could make a person invisible. This stone is related with many good personality traits that it imparts to its wearer; there include fidelity, confidence, love, understanding behavior etc. There are a lot of healing powers of the stone which will now be discussed in the later sections.
