Libras, born September 23 to October 22, are a special breed. They’re represented by a set of scales, the only sign in the zodiac that isn’t a living being, and this is said to point to their need for balance in life. But if that balance is disrupted… watch out! Libras can also be indecisive and difficult. People born under this particular Air sign are ruled by Venus, so that means they can be charming, clever, stylish, and personable. Let’s face it, these are all traits you need if you want to be famous! So it’s no wonder many successful celebrities are Libras. Let’s take a look at the famous people who best exemplify the Libra way of life.
The world knows everything about Kim Kardashian, including her star sign. She is of course a Libra, having been born on October 21, 1980. That might account for her sociability, her style, and her drive to be not just famous, but incredibly famous.
Kim K has spoken surprisingly little about whether or not she identifies with her star sign, but one of her popular make-up palettes contains a shade of cobalt blue called “Libra.” She looks fantastic in it, of course.
The actor considered one of the nicest men in Hollywood is a Libra! But in true Libra fashion, he’s not actually sure about being assigned that label. Yep, he believes in balancing his good and bad qualities.
In 2015 Jackman told news.com.au, “I’m not always nice… Sometimes you’ve got to be cruel to be kind, and I’ve done things in the past where I haven’t wanted to let someone down and that’s a battle for me.” Many other Libras can surely relate!
Bruce Springsteen neatly exemplifies the way a Libra can rise up in the world. He was born into a working-class family in a quiet town and soon started rebelling against the restrictions on him. His high school teachers might not have thought he’d get far in life, but we know now that he had a tremendous talent.
Now Springsteen is known as “the Boss” by his fans — a very Libra nickname, we have to say — and he has an incredibly successful music career that doesn’t look set to end any time soon. This Libra was destined for fame.
Jenna Ortega was born on September 27, so she’s a Libra — as is her most famous character, Wednesday Addams from the Netflix show Wednesday! Astrology fans have noted that actors often seem to excel at playing characters with the same star sign as themselves.
Ortega herself told Wired in a 2022 video interview, “I don’t know much about horoscopes, but living in L.A. I do know that I’m a Libra, and I have been told, ‘You’re such a Libra.’ And we’re apparently really indecisive. And I am.”
As her brand name suggests, Paltrow’s foray into “wellness” indicates that she’s seeking to find harmony in her life: she’s 100 percent a Libra! She got talking about it during a 2020 interview with Allure magazine, and even though she didn’t know her Moon and rising signs, she knew she was living the Libra life.
Allure asked, “Do you feel like a Libra?” and Paltrow answered, “Very much so. All about balance, maintaining it and going imbalanced. Very about justice, the scales of justice. And I can't make a decision.” Many Libras apparently have trouble with indecisiveness!
Unsurprisingly, many Libras go into the legal profession because it’s a career they can be very well suited for. Some of them become judges, as their temperament can be ideal for such important work; one aspect of the typical Libra personality is even called “The Judge!”
So you shouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that the world’s most famous judge is a Libra: Judge Judy. She’s not only keen to keep the peace in her courtroom, but outside of it she’s very sociable; Libras tend to love to make friends. Judy admittedly probably hasn’t made many friends among the guests on her show, though!
Actress Hilary Duff believes that having the Libra star sign helped her take the plunge and get married to Canadian hockey player Mike Comrie in 2010. Unfortunately as of 2016 they are divorced, but her thoughts on marrying in the first place might sound familiar to other Libras.
Duff told website Collider during a 2011 interview. “It just felt right, so I went with it. I’m pretty good at thinking about everything — all of my consequences — before I make a decision, and I think about everything that’s going to happen because of that decision. I’m a Libra, and I’m very strategic.”
Jeff Goldblum does not believe in star signs at all. When being profiled for Interview magazine in 2019 he asked the interviewer, “You don’t believe in astrology, do you? It’s utter nonsense,” when she brought up his being a Libra.
And yet… Goldblum is a really good Libra. He’s creative, smart, suave, and he has balanced his professional life and personal life very well over the years. This guy serves perfectly as a role model to other Libras, even though he’d probably hate that!
Interestingly, a great deal of famous rappers seem to have been born under the Libra star sign. And Lil Wayne, one of the biggest names in the business, is one of them: he came into the world on September 27, 1982, right at the start of Libra season.
Lil Wayne knows all about the qualities of a Libra, too. On his song “She Will,” he rapped, "So on my Libra scale, I'm weighing sins and forgiveness / What goes around, comes around like a hula hoop." Maybe we’ll see more lyrics like that from him in the future!
Kelly Ripa is big on astrology. In a September 2020 Instagram story she enthused, “I like Virgos a lot. I’ve got a lot of Virgos in my life, so I'm not surprised that the universe put us together.” According to experts, though, Libras and Virgos don’t actually go well romantically, so it shouldn’t be surprising that Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos has the Aries sign instead.
According to a 2022 article from Yahoo!Life, “Aries and Libra are two signs known for being extremely different — in fact, they are celestial opposites — so it may come as a surprise that this duo has one of the best love and friendship compatibility matches out there.”
Pop-culture astrologist Kyle Thomas did a deep dive into Zac Efron’s zodiac for a 2022 New York Post article. He concluded that the High School Musical star was “a charming Libra Sun with a practical Virgo Moon” based on his birth date of October 18.
Not only that, but “his Sun, ruling his life force, is exactly linked with Jupiter, the planet of luck, fortune and miracles.” Maybe it just goes to show, you need luck to succeed in Hollywood as well as talent.
Serena Williams isn’t just one of the biggest tennis champions in the world, but one of the biggest sportspeople, period. And she’s a textbook example of a successful Libra. The Air and Earth elements she got from her September 26 birth date suggest she’s not only smart and strategic, but fiercely determined as well.
Williams’ hard work has paid off spectacularly. She retired from tennis with a net worth of hundreds of millions of dollars, and now she’s running an investment firm called Serena Ventures.
Dakota Johnson read a description of her Libra star sign for a W magazine video in 2022 and said, “That tracks.” The description was, “You hold people around you to a certain standard, yourself to a higher one, you’ll be better for the injustice.”
The actress added, “I think all of that is so accurate. I do think I’m Libra-like. I’m indecisive when it comes to mundane choices, like where to eat.” But she’s also immensely successful and rich!
If an astrology expert had heard about Barbara Walters’ life and career without knowing what her star sign was, they’d probably have guessed “Libra” right away. And they’d have been right: Walters was born September 25, 1929.
She had a phenomenally successful career in television and was especially noted for her interviews of other public figures. And though she sadly passed away in December 2022 at the grand old age of 93, she remains one of the most beloved TV stars of all time.
World-famous actor Matt Damon was born on October 8, which of course makes him a Libra. His star sign straight away pointed to talent, fame, and fortune, but it may have pointed to his long-term friendship with fellow actor Ben Affleck as well.
Affleck is a Leo, and Leos tend to get on very well with Libras. According to astrologist Thomas, writing on his website, “Matt is ruled by Venus, planet of art and beauty, whereas Ben is ruled by the Sun, planet of life and creativity. This is such a wonderful union and so incredibly easy.”
People have pored over Bella Hadid’s birth charts to find out what makes the Libra model such a success. She was born on October 9, 1996, and her birth time is actually known to all as well, so that makes her easy to analyze.
According to a 2022 New York Post article, Hadid has “focus on refinement and luxury built into her personality, spirit and life” because of “the gorgeous dance between her Venus, the planet of beauty, with Jupiter, the planet of fortune.” That sounds about right!
Rising star Michaela Coel is a fan of astrology. She said during a 2017 interview with W magazine, “The first time I got into astrology was being in New York. I was like, ‘Oh, this is a real thing here!’ Now, I’ll google what your sign is and what my sign is to see the predictions of friendship and I find that really cool.”
Coel is also very savvy about her own star sign and the apparent downsides of being a Libra. She said, “I’m very rational so sometimes I need the facts, and if I don’t have the facts then I get huffy and I move on.”
When you look at Kate Winslet’s career, it’s nothing short of incredible. She got her first film role at the age of 15 and won a BAFTA just four years later. Then in 1997 she became one of the biggest actresses of her generation when she starred in the blockbuster Titanic.
Flash forward a few decades, and Winslet is still going strong! She’s now got an Oscar, more BAFTAs, two Primetime Emmys and multiple other awards. Truly she’s a role model for Libras everywhere.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
When Catherine Zeta-Jones married Michael Douglas, a man 25 years her senior, eyebrows were raised. But it’s been decades now and the two of them seem happier than ever. Is it because they’re both Libras, and share the exact same birthday to boot?
Maybe! Double-Libra romantic relationships are said to be very successful ones. Appropriately, considering the sign of the scales, they usually end up being well-balanced. That definitely seems to be the case with these two!
Noughties superstar Avril Lavigne was born on August 27, 1984, so she’s a Libra Sun with a Scorpio Moon. And she was once married to a Scorpio as well, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, but the marriage only lasted two years in the end.
Still, Lavigne has the sort of star sign that reportedly makes a person want to be in a relationship. In 2021 she told Apple Music, “I'm definitely always open to love. I'm a Libra and Libras love love.”
Maybe there’s something about the Libra sign that produces incredible tennis players? Naomi Osaka was born on October 16, so perhaps her star sign is where she got those strategic abilities she displays on the court. And like other Libras, she also has a strong sense of justice, as demonstrated by her non-tennis activities.
Osaka has never said anything to the media about her star sign and whether or not she identifies with it, but interestingly one of the patterns in her Frankies Bikinis swimwear collection is called “Libra Stripe.”
Caitríona Balfe plays Claire Fraser in the smash-hit drama show Outlander, she’s an extremely successful actress. And, of course, she’s a Libra. If you’re a horoscope expert, you could probably guess that just by looking at her early life.
Balfe began a modeling career after being spotted by a talent scout while collecting money for charity. Can you imagine a more Libra thing to happen? And from there, she honed her acting skills more and more until she got the Outlander gig.
Gwen Stefani is a Libra and proud. She even sings the line, “I am a Libra, let’s balance the scales,” in her song “Spark the Fire.” And her star sign might have helped lead to the arms of her beloved husband Blake Shelton.
According to astrologer Rachel Lang, who in 2020 spoke to Women’s Health magazine, both Stefani and Shelton have their Moons in Pisces. She said, “When two people have the same Moon sign, they naturally feel right at home with one another.”
Susan Sarandon, born October 4, 1946, has a Libra Sun and a Capricorn Moon. Star-sign experts reckon this is why she has such a strong sense of social justice and such a generally fierce personality.
Indeed, Sarandon’s activism is legendary in Hollywood. She’s been outspoken about environmental issues, crime issues, civil rights issues, and more. She’s also very much opposed to the death penalty, as you may know if you saw her Oscar-winning 1995 film Dead Man Walking.
Amber Rose knows all about her star sign and the good qualities Libras are said to have. In a 2011 interview with the website Complex she was asked, “Who was the last person you sincerely complimented?” and she answered, “I do that to everyone. All the time, all day. I’m a Libra. If someone compliments me, I’ll say something nice to them. I like to give out compliments.”
Now that seems like true Libra energy, and she seems to have carried it through her whole career so far. It just goes to show, being nice to people goes a long way.
Rapper A$AP Rocky is a Libra, but he’s partner to Rhianna, who is a Pisces. Are the two signs supposed to work well with each other? The answer is yes! Astrologer Lang talked about it to Women’s Health magazine in 2022.
She said, "The most notable thing is that Rihanna’s Aries Moon opposes A$AP’s Libra Sun. This is an indicator of passion and chemistry.” It certainly seems to be! The pair welcomed their first child in May 2022; he is a Taurus.
Libras don’t just seem to make good performers, they can make good politicians too. People have pored over Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s astrological chart ever since her rise to fame, wondering if it might lead her all the way to the White House one day.
Astrologer Thomas thinks it might. “When looking at key astrological alignments, two major themes are further seen. She’s a mover, shaker and doer,” he wrote for the New York Post in 2022. He added, “With her Sun and Mars united, her confidence and combativeness will take her far — she is tirelessly hardworking and revels in victory beyond all else.”
Marvel Cinematic Universe actress Brie Larson fits the Libra stereotype to a T: she’s outgoing, bold, sociable, and of course very successful indeed. She’s also done a great job of balancing her career and her personal life. You’ll notice that she makes headlines for the former, not the latter.
We happen to know the star sign of Larson’s most famous character, too! Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, reportedly has a birthday of April 24, so that makes her a Taurus.
Snoop Dogg is among the most famous of all the Libra rappers. And he incorporates his star sign into his lyrics sometimes. His 2015 song “Peaches N Cream” features the line, "Yes, I'm internationally known / Libra love that make you moan and groan.”
That’s not all, though. According to New York Post astrologer Thomas, Snoop Dogg was born under many rare astrological alignments, so he was always destined to be a world-changer from the day he was born.
Alicia Vikander is a Swedish actress who’s done incredibly well in Hollywood. She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in 2015’s The Danish Girl and has appeared in many high-profile films since, including Jason Bourne and The Green Knight.
She’s married to actor Michael Fassbender, whom she met while filming the movie The Light Between Oceans. He’s an Aries, so according to experts they probably have quite an “opposites attract” kind of relationship, as many Libra-Aries romantic pairings reportedly do.
Julie Andrews is a perfect image of a Libra beloved by all. She’s got talent, that much is obvious to anyone who’s watched Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music, but she’s also got charisma, confidence, and yep, a good sense of balance in her life.
Andrews herself said, “I think I’m a rebel, and then it takes me forever to make up my mind about things...I’m a true Libra,” in a 2019 interview with Oprah Daily magazine.
Actress and singer Bella Thorne is a Libra: she was born October 8, 1997. And she’s very pleased indeed about it. She said as much, in a typically Libra way, during a 2018 interview with Wired.
Thorne told the world, “I like Libras. I'm pretty proud of my zodiac sign, I'd be pretty upset if I was a Scorpio. Sorry for anybody in the room who is a Scorpio.” Bad news for Bella Thorne-loving Scorpios there!
Usher’s personality fits the Libra sign perfectly. His talent for singing was discovered at an early age, and from there he rose and rose until he became the Grammy award-winning musician we all know today. And on top of that, he does a lot of humanitarian and charity work.
Based on Usher’s birth date of October 14, 1978, he is also a Virgo rising, which is said to mean he’s careful, thoughtful, and smart. That, combined with his typical Libra traits, clearly made him a force with which to be reckoned.
Reality TV star Jordyn Woods is happy to chat about her star sign. Back in 2012 she tweeted, “I'm so indecisive.. about pretty much everything... I think it's a Libra thing.” She’s not wrong, but there seem to be plenty of upsides to being born a Libra, as well!
According to astrology experts, Venus is all about beauty, art, and wealth, which explains why Woods’ insta is a one-stop shop of stunning, glittery outfits, and enviable social events. That’s the Libra way!
Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber
Back in 2007 a pregnant Naomi Watts had some thoughts about the downsides of being one Libra partnered up with another. She told Female First magazine, "That thing about Libras and balance is a myth. Because we see things from both sides it can turn into a horrific imbalance because it makes it impossible to make a decision.”
She went on, “It's terrible with the two of us trying to decide where to eat, what holiday to go on, what to call our baby." But in the end they settled on naming their baby Sasha. Sadly the couple aren’t together any more, but they continue to co-parent their children.
After the famous Will Smith slapping incident at the 2022 Oscars, astrologers turned to their star charts to see if there was any explanation there. Thomas of the New York Post said that maybe the reason the Oscar-winner had struck Chris Rock was “a tremendously passionate Scorpio Moon.”
Thomas went on, “[Smith] has a high level of intensity and rebellious energy in his innate personality because his Sun, ruling his life force, is in the same place in the sky as his Uranus, which is the planet of chaos and revolution.”
Cardi B seems to perfectly embody Libra energy: she’s stylish, powerful, sociable, and extremely charismatic. It’s those traits and her talents that have helped her go from working at a strip club to being one of the biggest stars in America.
And Cardi B thoroughly embraces her Libra nature. She wrote in a 2016 tweet, “I'm such a Libra it's not even funny, my sign represents me so well.” And in another one from 2022 she said, “Why are people doubting me? Don’t you know I’m a Libra?”
Stranger Things actor Noah Schnapp displays many traits of your typical Libra. He’s a successful actor with a flair for business as well, and after publicly coming out in 2023 he began exuberantly joining in with Pride parties. His fans couldn’t have been happier for him.
Interestingly, Noah Schnapp plays an Aries in Stranger Things! Will Byers was born on March 22, so he was officially born under that sign. Aries and Libras are opposite signs: maybe that just goes to show what a good actor he is?
Eminem is another example of how a Libra can triumph over adversity. The man born Marshall Mathers grew up in poverty with his mother after his father abandoned the family, and his childhood was extremely difficult.
But Eminem’s talent and charisma couldn’t be quashed. He’s now one of the most famous rappers in the world, and astrology experts think it’s at least partly down to his Libra Sun, Aquarius Moon, and the way the planets fell on the day he was born.
Joy Behar was born on October 7, 1942. And although we don’t know the exact time of her birth, astrologers have noted many interesting things about her birthday. The Libra dominant element is Air, which could explain why she’s an adventurous free spirit.
People born into the Air element are also often considered to be very intelligent, sociable, and witty. Joy Behar lives up to all three of these things: she’s an actress, a TV host, and a comic.
