Sign of Libra Libra

Libra, the Balance, or Scales, symbolizes measurement and balance in general as well as justice (Job 31:6) and commerce (Rev 6:5).  It symbolizes Christ, our justification, who satisfied the perfect Justice of God by being judged for the sins of the world (Rom 5:8-9).  Since the balance was used for weighing money, it became the symbol of business (Rev 6:5).  Libra was symbolized by the Tribe of Dan (Gen 49:17).


An accurate balance with accurate weights was a symbol of justice.  The Lord has perfect Justice based upon His absolute Righteousness.  The scales of divine Justice are accurately calibrated.  Divine Judgment is without partiality (Deut 10:17; Acts 10:34; Rom 2:11; Gal 2:6; Eph 6:9).  God is the final Judge (2 Tim 4:1; Heb 4:12; 10:30; 12:23; Jas 4:12).

God's Justice

God's perfect Justice will not tolerate injustice (Isa 30:18, 61:8).  The sin of man demanded God's Judgment (Gen 2:17; Rom 5:16-18; 6:23; 1 Cor 15:22a; Jas 1:15).  Jesus Christ suffered the Judgment of God on behalf of mankind for the sins of the world (Rom 4:25; 8:3; 2 Cor 5:21; Gal 3:13; Heb 9:26, 28; 1 Jn 2:2).  Believers are justified through the work of Christ on the Cross.

There will be Justice in the Resurrection when every believer will render an account to the Lord (Rom 2:16; 14:10, 12; 1 Cor 4:5; 2 Cor 5:10; 1 Pet 4:5).  Jesus Christ administers perfect Justice from the Throne of God (Psa 33:5; 89:14; 97:2; Isa 33:5; Acts 10:42; Heb 8:1; 12:2).  He will rule in the Millennium with Justice (Isa 28:17; 42:1-4; 61:8; Jer 33:15) as with a rod of iron (Psa 2:9; Rev 2:27; 12:5; 19:15).


Satan and fallen angels have to be judged for rebelling against God (Matt 25:41; Rev 20:10).  Satan tried to usurp the authority of God and rule in the Lord's place on the Throne of God (Isa 14:14).  For his sin, he was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to the Lake of Fire.


God is fair to unbelievers in this life.  He is not willing for any of them to perish, but if they die without accepting Christ, they will have to be judged.  They will be judged at the Great White Throne for their works, which do not measure up to the Righteousness of God (Jn 3:18; Acts 17:31; Heb 9:27; 1 Pet 4:5; Rev 20:14-15; 21:8).  Their sins will not be mentioned, since they were judged on the Cross.

Nations which try to destroy Israel must be judged (Joel 3:2, 11-12; Zeph 3:8; Zech 14:2-3; Rev 16:14).  And governments are ministers of justice (Prov 29:4; Rom 13:4).


The scales of Libra symbolize the economy, commerce, and business (Rev 6:5-6).  The balance, as a measuring or weighing device, was also called a pair of scales.


Libra also symbolizes measuring devices other than balances and scales.  These devices include: The measurements of Libra are symbolized by all manner of mathematical calculation, counting, weights, and measures, including time (Isa 40:12).  The balance of Libra symbolizes balance and control of all manner of competing forces, such as walking upright and not falling; dancing; heat and cold, ebb and flow, rise and fall, wet and dry, masculine and feminine, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, and music.

Spiritual Rapport

Libra includes rapport and harmony.  The balance of Spiritual Rapport is described by the Hebrew verb, palas, meaning to make even; make level, smooth, of a path (Pr 4:26; 5:6, 21; Is 26:7; Psa 78:50).  Harmonious rapport is love, unity, and lack of friction between two people.  There is no harmony (Greek, sumfwvnhsi", (sumphonesis)) between Christ and Belial (1 Cor 6:15).  Spiritual Rapport with God must precede harmonious rapport with people.  The concept of balance and harmony is key to analyzing an astrology chart.
