Libra (Tula) Rashi

The 7th sign is Tula (Libra). Parashara describes Tula as follows:

"It is a Seershodaya rashi rising with its head; Tula is strong during daytime. It is black in complexion and is predominant with Rajo guna. It relates to the western direction and resorts to land. It is destructive or mischievous ('Dhatin'). It represents Sudras or the 4th Varna. It has a medium build physique and is a biped rashi. Its lord is Shukra."

Shukra (Venus) is the ruler and Tula is a movable, airy and male sign. Shukra is the graha for harmony and grace, and in this airy sign these qualities get expressed in more abstract forms.

The symbol of Tula is a man holding scales, symbolizing an innate affinity with considering balance, proper relations and the harmonious exchange of things.

People with a prominent Tula will be easy to deal with due to their Venusian quality. The element of air gives an ability to easily sense other's people's nature, and Venus added to that makes for a great talent to create pleasant relationships. Such people will be good at maintaining a balance in the process of giving and taking, or they can use the same to their advantage in salesman type work.
