'Tis the season of the Libra! To everyone born in late September/early October, let us raise a glass! With Venus, master of love and desire, as their ruling planet, Libras are known for their strong associations with love, beauty and desire. Represented by the scales, Libras are known to be able to see all sides of a situation, and often have trouble making decisions. Despite being prone to moodiness, Libras are generally inclined to keep the peace. Also, Libras tend to be pretty bad with time management and money.
Here’s a list of celebrity Libras and what makes them such special members of the Libra tribe.
1. Kim Kardashian: Mamma Mia!
Birthday: October 21st, 1980
Age: 34 going on 35!
What makes her a libra: Libras tend to be social butterflies who are obsessed with all things related to beauty. If that’s not Kim in a nutshell, I don’t know what is. She’s a high school dropout who got famous for a sex tape but is a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, which illustrates her diversified interest and can-do attitude. Libras most prominent negative attitude is narcissism, which… well, we’ll just leave it at that.
Celebration style: Last year she celebrated at TAO Nightclub in Las Vegas, and the year before that, she also celebrated her birthday at TAO Nightclub in Las Vegas. This year, however, we expect her to go for something slightly less alcoholic. Last year, husband Kanye West announced that he wanted his wife to give birth to their second child on her next birthday (which is also the anniversary of the date Kanye proposed.) They missed the mark by a couple of months, though. Kim isn’t due till November. Virgin champagne for everyone. Are we still going to TAO?
2. Lil Wayne: Young at heart
Birthday: September 27, 1982
What makes him a libra: Libras are known for being indecisive, which explains why Lil Wayne went with getting all the tattoos instead of just one. He even has a smiley face on the inside of his lower lip.
Celebration style: This year, the New Orleans native celebrated his 33rd birthday at a nightclub, complete Popeyes’s chicken and 7-11 Slurpees. The party even got his own hashtag: #TurnUpTune. I would also add the hashtag: #NailingIt. You had me at Slurpees.
3. Snoop Dogg: The Party King
Birthday: October 20th, 1971
Age: 43 going on 44
What makes him a Libra: Libras are known to have close relationships with their friends and family. Snoop is no exception. This year, he threw an all out Coming to America themed party for his son's 18th birthday, complete with full outfits for the entire fam and plenty of matching decor. Did we mention there were rose petal throwers and a throne?
Celebration Style: Last year, Snoop had a pretty sweet birthday celebration. Always one for more is more, plan on his birthday being way over the top and having to take week-long hangover recovery.
4. Serena Williams: Unstoppable
Birthday: September 26th 1981
What makes her a Libra: Libra is an air sign, so no wonder Serena can send those balls flying! Libras are also known for being agile and able to switch direction quickly, which makes sense when you see her move on the court. This year, she took home championship titles at The Australian Open, The French Open and Wimbledon and a narrow loss at the US Open. She still has 21 grand slam titles in all. Plus, Venus is the ruling planet of the Libra sign, and last I check, Serena had a pretty close relationship with a Venus of her own.
Celebration style: The 34-year-old tennis star celebrated her birthday on September 26th hanging out poolside soaking in some much needed sun. Oh, and can we please talk about the rumors that she is dating rapper, Drake? Get it, girl.
5. Kate Winslet: Keepin it Classy
Birthday: October 5, 1975
Age: 39 going on 40
What makes her a Libra: Libras are known to be cool under pressure. Kate’s number one birthday presant request this year? A pressure cooker. She says it’s to start DIY making “bone broth,” which is all the rage among celebrity foodies. Cute.
Celebration Style: She said in an interview with Good Morning Britain she “has a feeling she’ll be spending it in a bikini.” She certainly has plenty to celebrate. Winslet started acting at 7, landed her first role in a feature film at nineteen and snagged the lead in Titanic three years later.
