Libra Rising

Meaning of Rising Sign

Libra rising means that Libra was the zodiac sign that was on the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. As a Libra rising, you're ruled by air, and your ruling planet is Venus, the planet of love, beauty, long-term connections and money.


Because Libra is ruled by the planet of aesthetic and beauty, Libra risings have a naturally beautiful physique, complexion and facial features. Libra rising natives are very attractive. That's just a hands-down fact!

The powers of Venus don't just appear in the physical appearance, though. It also shows up in the way that Libra rising personalities move. Everything from their walk to their run or skip is beautiful and graceful. As such this placement would make ideal dancers or performers.

Regarding body shape, this placement is agile, nimble and slender. They have a pleasing look to them from top to bottom.

Libra rules the lower back, so, therefore, they tend to have attractive—but smaller—lower back areas. This makes Libra rising natives of average (or petite) height but quite visually pleasing.

As a rising sign, Libra uses its aesthetic eye to look at the world … in the way that they want to view it. So, Libra rising natives enjoy life when things are going smoothly. They don't like bumps in the road, conflict or obstacles. Instead, they will simply roll over those obstacles or pretend they didn't see them. And that's all part of the dreamy, avoidant attitudes that they hold up.

Given that Libra is the sign of the Scales, everything they do is balanced by something (or someone) else. So, it isn't uncommon for a Libra rising to think about everyone else before themselves. It's also likely that this person is a serial dater—always needing to be accompanied by someone else as they go through life.

Libra rising natives have a magnetic personality. People just love to be around them. So, this makes Libra risings quite social, skilled at conversing and able to make friends easily. They do very well at social or networking events and can throw a party like no other.

Lastly, this person makes the best mediator—whether that's in a courtroom or during a friendly squabble. Because we're talking about Libra rising natives, this isn't a comfortable place to be for this person. But they're just so good at calming others down. They are naturally good at pointing out new perspectives and finding compromises.

The first impression a Libra rising gives off is someone polite, pleasing, friendly and easy to get along with. They might choose to shoo away an issue if you bring it up, but that's only because they enjoy living in their “dream life”—where everything is going well and everyone gets along. Many people (unless you're a Scorpio or Aquarius rising) find this kind of surface-level chat preferred.
