The name Libra is Latin for scales. Before the Romans associated the scales with the goddess of justice, Astraea, the ancient Babylonians and Greeks saw the constellation as scorpion's claws. The two main stars are named Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali, Arabic for "southern claw" and "northern claw." 
Libra holds multiple planetary systems, including the first Earth-like extrasolar planet located in the star's habitable zone, making it a likely candidate for life outside of our solar system.

The Libra astrological sign is the second air sign of the zodiacs, being represented by the color pink. This sign is ruled by the planet Venus. The sun is in this constellation during the middle of autumn, from approximately September 22 - October 21.
