Major Arcana

There are two cards in the Major Arcana that would represent the Libra energy:


The Justice card has a Queen present holding the scales of justice, this is Libra’s main symbol representing you must balance logic and overall just for society. In her other and she is holding a lengthy sword that represents that a well-ordered mindset that is necessary.

Thankfully she is blessing us with the truth, and consequences from our actions. This is a necessary adjustment in everyone’s life.

With Libra energy or not, this is a well-rounded card that speaks to all energies, because that is how much harmony the Libra is capable of. This card could bring lots of change, and laying the law down may disrupt your current journey, showing you real answers.

Do not fret, the universe is an equilibrium of good and bad, and what comes around goes around. Karma is real and present, and we all have dealt with our consequences in our lifetime.

The Empress

The Empress is showing up and providing us with Libra’s most pure feminine energy, and its ruling planet Venus. Libra energy calls in on fertility, love, and all beauty.

A beautiful woman wearing a crown of stars, showing her overall connection with the natural world as it once was. She is grace, and fully connected to Mother Earth.

The intense conscious level that Libra energy holds is hard for some signs to overcome, and settle into. This is a gentle reminder that when you are in tune with your highest best self, you’re allowing compassion and love to enter at its highest degree.

Self-love is also an important lesson from Libra, to pause and be gracious to yourself. When you’re able to do this and tap into more abundance will fill your life. Living your best potential is another great lesson from the Libra energy here.

Minor Arcana

The Minor Arcana is further divided into 4 suit cards and each suit has it’s own overall energy and feel. Libra would be represented by the following Minor Arcana Cards:

  • King of Cups
  • Queen of Swords
  • Four of Swords
  • Three of Swords
  • Two of Swords
  • Page of Swords
  • Ace of Swords

King of Cups

The King of Cups is gentle, caring, a water baring, and an air baring card. He holds a cup in one hand, and a scepter in the other, the true balancing act between air and emotions.

Bringing more attention to the importance of a balancing act of your life. Sometimes our emotions get the best of us, and we end up losing ourselves amid our inner feelings. This king is here to remind you, you’re emotionally balanced and able to move past any challenges that come your way.

Being calm and emotionally mature is a role you may be ready to step into, or its effects are necessary for growth. With this card’s Libra energy attached it brings us looking up to a fatherly figure, and remaining stoic.

Listening to our highest self and realigning yourself with the king and his logic, and ability to take such a diplomatic role.

Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords is the independent, strong female lead we all need to be present in our lives. Libra is an air sign, so it sits perfectly with this sword air energy in the card.

The Queen is openly feminine, representing butterflies on her throne, and transformation. She holds her swords high, setting clear boundaries and there is no error in her communication skills.

This Libra energy is alive, and not just flowing but comes in a strong wind that passes through the trees and brings clouds. The Queen of Swords seeks truth and intellectual conversations.

She can keep her emotions subsided, refraining from drama, or gossip always.

Four of Swords

Four of Swords shows a male, resting along with his battle swords. Libra energy also chimes in on solace, and meditative attributes.

This card is likely to appear when you need a break and Libra energy is here weighing in telling us to sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labors from before. Take a moment and retreat.

Re-asses and understand your life is changing around you while you focus on yourself. Four of Swords is not judgmental, or selfish, it is caring for you and your mental stress. Rest is important and crucial during our journey.

Three of Swords

Three of Swords is heart-breaker material, Libras can show sorrow, and guilt, like no other, and this card is proof.

Also, their weaknesses are presented to us, showing self-pity, and not using networking in a good sense. This reveals to us a few of the downsides to Libra energy, the indecisiveness, and the ability to carry so many grudges on their heart.

This is heart was pierced by three swords, what agony! The rainy background and emotional pain felt through this card’s energy are holding a lot of grief.

Understand cleansing is a process, and you have to do whatever it takes to get through things. It is important to stay focused and move forward, after releasing your negative emotions then conquer the pain.

Two of Swords

Two of Swords shows us a blindfolded woman holding two crossed swords in front of her. Protecting herself from whatever may come her way, with her blindfold on she fears the worst.

Weighing down your options can help you make a decision. Libras at times can be very indecisive. Being thorough enough with yourself to make these difficult decisions takes a ton of self-compassion.

Stagnation is what you want to avoid here, making a heartfelt decision will help make your journey light again.  Choose mental awareness, and do not avoid it.

Balancing your intellect will only make things easier for you, life is a huge world of decisions so trusting yourself is key.

The Page of Swords

The Page of Swords, this card is mostly familiar with a person who is in their youth, associated with all cardinal air. This messenger is just exchanging ideas and is very opinionated, he is very open to new ideas as well he portrays both sides of the Libra well.

This complements the sign so well, bringing out some of the strongest qualities of this energy of being both restless and respectful when appropriate. This young man is ready, but he has a lot to learn.

The Ace of Swords

The Ace of Wands represents all of the air signs in astrology, bringing Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra energy altogether.

More so the Ace of Swords suggests lots of creativity and change coming into one’s life. Kind of appearing out of nowhere from this cloud is accurate air energy.

At the most random times Libra energy means quick movements throughout your journey, one must be keen and swift. Strongly independent a Libra needs to trust their intuition always.

Have you ever wanted the sound of the ocean splashing in the background as you work at your desk, or cook dinner in the kitchen?

The White Noise Maker is something I use every day. It has 6 sound options including Thunder, the sound of the Ocean, a summer night, rain and white noise.

I love the sound of rain playing in the background, or the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the sand. Sometimes I use it when I go to bed, or even in my office with my Asakuki Diffuser giving off the gentle scent of lavender in the air.

It`s also nice having the Himalayan salt Lamp on in the background with my Crystal Tree of Life next to it. I have them in my office and they create a “zen” feel for me while I’m working.
