To know a Libra is to love a Libra, and these celebrity Libras are no exception. This Venus-ruled air sign is one of the most likable, charismatic signs of the Zodiac, governed by aestheticism, harmony, and people-pleasing perfect for a career in the arts. When paired with dominance in Virgo, Scorpio, or Sagittarius, it seems as if Libra is predestined for fame, with their cardinal predisposition towards launching new projects making for varied and storied careers, provided Libra's innate indecision and ambivalence doesn't get in the way. From Kim Kardashian to John Krasinski, these celebrity Libras might surprise you.

Libras are obsessed with symmetry, balance, and harmony, something Kim Kardashian knows a little about. This October 21 baby has her dramatic moments, especially on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but you don’t go from Paris Hilton’s closet organizer to trendsetting A-Lister without an eye for detail. When Kim decided to turn her infamous sex tape into the jumping-off point for a prolific career, she didn’t just help herself. She brought the entire Kardashian family up with her, echoing Libra’s high valuation of relationships. Most tellingly, Libra governs the skin, making physical appearance a big priority, and they seek out partnerships with equally fashionable mates. Sound like anyone we know? Kim's outward persona may align more closely with her sign's dominance in Virgo and Sagittarius, but make no mistake: Kim's got Libra running through her veins.
Cardi B found herself a fashionable mate as well, marrying Migos rapper Offset while both artists were climbing to the top of the charts. Cardi knows a symbiotic relationship when she sees one. Cardi got a celebrity Libra’s eye for style, too. She famously got a bag and fixed her teeth when her star began to rise (read also: “Bodak Yellow”), and the Venus-ruled sign’s government of love, beauty, and money could just as easily sum up Cardi’s three favorite things. Cardi was born on October 11 (on a full moon, no less!) with a grand cross in her cardinal signs, which are considered instigators. If you’re wondering whether that describes Cardi, you might want to ask Nicki Minaj.
Libra is an artistic sign, so Zac Efron’s triple-threat status shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Born on October 18, Zac carries Libra’s natural charm, and his recent transformation into an outdoorsy world traveler (along with his go-to prayer hands red carpet pose) hints at a Libra-like fixation on harmony and balance. If you’re wondering how Libras line-up romantically with your sign, they’re most compatible with Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Shoot your shot, ladies! Cancer and Capricorn need not apply. Libras tend to be relationship-focused, but Zac hasn't been official with anyone since 2016. Maybe that's the dominant Scorpio in his chart talking.
Marshall Mathers, better known by his stage name Eminem, was born on October 17. Not only is his Sun in Libra, but the air sign is one of his chart’s most dominant signs alongside Sagittarius (and, to a lesser extent, Virgo), showcasing a thirst to conquer and constantly evolve, an aim to please, and a sense of responsibility. That trifecta can lead to haters accusing you of lacking authenticity, which Eminem has faced as a white man in rap, but his crowd-pleasing singles drowned out his malcontents, making Marshall the first artist to win the Best Rap Album Grammy Award for three consecutive LPs.
Maddie Ziegler was born on September 30, 2002. Feel old yet? The “Chandelier” dancer and former Dance Moms star has accomplished more before the age of 16 than most people do in a lifetime, the paradigm of Libra’s cardinal sign tendency to launch new initiatives with verve and charm. She focuses on her personal relationships as much as her public persona, demonstrated by her lasting bond with Sia, who became Maddie’s godmother after the young dancer began appearing in her music videos. Pretty and put-together, it’s easy to see Maddie’s aesthetic ties to Libra through her physical appearance, but it’s truly in Maddie’s dancing where her dedication to beauty shows through.
You don’t become one of YouTube’s biggest crossover stars without being a majorly charismatic people pleaser. Born on September 26, Lilly Singh has made fun of That One Friend Who Believes In Horoscopes on her channel before, but the superwoman fits her Libra sun better than she might expect. Sharing a birthdate with Serena Williams, Olivia Newton-John, and Christina Millian, it seems like September 26 is a date destined for greatness, with a constant stream of successful side-hustles keeping Libra in her bag where she loves to be. Christina has her highly popular beignet truck, Serena owns stakes in the Miami Dolphins and UFC, and Lilly took her YouTube fame and parlayed it into a late-night talk show on NBC, making her the first woman of color to host a network late-night show in the US.
Born on October 8, Bruno Mars is in good celebrity Libra company. Matt Damon, Sigourney Weaver, Bella Thorne, Nick Cannon, Barbara Palvin, and Chevy Chase join Bruno in demonstrating how powerful Libra is in its eighth house can be, blending Libra’s principles of harmony, extraversion, and seduction with Saturn’s rigid self-control and concentration. It’s the best of both worlds. Libra’s seductiveness is exemplified through Bruno’s career, which proved a 5’7” man can carry more sex appeal in his raised pinky finger than any 6-foot tall SAE on his best day. Marry that with talent and meticulous dedication, and you have an unstoppable artistic force.
Bruno Mars’s birthday twin, Bella Thorne shares the “24K Magic” singer’s easy seductive nature, while her Venus in Sagittarius implies an associative nature compatible with Libra’s love for relationships. Funnily enough, America’s thruple queen has a sign known for indecisiveness which, when paired with Sag’s need to be constantly amazed, could explain her history of unconventional romances. Astro Theme cites a taste for independence, emancipation, and exoticism in Bella’s chart. Look no further than her public Instagram to see how spot-on that assessment is. It also references a need for freedom rooted in her childhood experiences as key to finding balance, something we're sure any former Disney Channel star can attest to.
Speaking of former Disney Channel stars, Rowan Blanchard joins Bella Thorne in the ranks of Disney celebrity Libras. Known for her work on Girl Meets World, her activism, and being a yung style icon, Rowan was born on October 14 with both her Sun and Mercury in Libra. She was born on the same day as Usher, Lourdes Leon, and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and she shares Libra like dualities with all three, weirdly enough. She has the fashion-forward innovation of Lourdes, the big-picture thinking of Usher, and the social liberalism of Eisenhower (who, although he was a Republican, was instrumental in integrating schools, ending McCarthyism, and expanded social security while opposing massive military spending — the more you know!). Like Bruno, Rowan’s Libra is in her eighth house, meaning she has a sweet and communicative nature informing her goals with an undercurrent of concentration and dedication to help her achieve the harmony and balance Libras crave.
Born on September 27, Lil Wayne is a man of many talents. Sure, he’s best known as a rapper, but the “Lollipop” musician and former Cash Money flagship artist is also the head of his own wildly successful label, Young Money Entertainment, which represents Drake and Nicki Minaj, among others. He’s also dabbled in acting, blogging for ESPN, and writing an autobiography about his time in Rikers Island. Born on the same day as Avril Lavigne, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Amma, there’s clearly a spirit of leadership present in a September 27 celebrity Libra. It’s up to the individual to choose if that easy charm will feed their cold, perfectionist tendencies or their desire to be simultaneously liked and distinguished.
Halsey herself has commented on her astrological birth chart, calling it “nottttt cool” on Twitter because the chart shows that she is “the most sensitive person alive.” We’ll have to agree to disagree because this September 29 baby has five planets in Scorpio, making it stupidly dominant in her chart. Yes, this lends itself to sensitivity and suspicion, but it’s equally a sign of strength, passion, and daring. The Libra of it all interests with her Venus in Scorpio by making love inseparable from passion, an intensity that has made its way into her chart-topping singles by exposing the complexity and depth of her ardor that hasn’t always helped her relationship but makes for great musical inspiration.
Snoop Dogg, born on October 20, is a man of many names. Starting out as Snoop Doggy Dogg and becoming DJ Snoopadelic, Snoopzilla, and Snoop Lion during a career that shows a celebrity Libra’s chameleon-like possibilities and love for new business ventures. Snoop began his career as a gansta rapper known for misogynistic lyrics and a high-profile murder charge. Now, he’s a chilled out lover of weed, a father, and co-hosts a cooking show with Martha Stewart. His charisma has made it so that Snoop could transition into a very different public persona without losing his status as an eternal O.G., making headlines for breaking the Guinness World Record for largest paradise cocktail in 2018 because he still brings the party in any situation.
BTS’s Jimin was named one of Business of Fashion’s top influencers as part of their BoF 500 in 2019, which is a really big deal. We shouldn’t have been surprised, though, because as a Libra, Jimin is predestined to have exquisite taste. Born on October 13, only Jimin’s Sun is in Libra, meaning he is innately sociable, intellectual, and peaceful, although, with three planets in Scorpio including his Venus, Libra and Scorpio are both dominant signs in his chart, especially in the fourth and fifth houses. This means that Jimin is aware that he's a charming chameleon but is seeking praise. That would explain how he became one of the biggest crossover K-Pop stars in history.
Donald Glover was born on September 25, making the "This Is America" star yet another Libra. Virgo is also strong in his chart, emphasizing his capacity for analysis and logic, his meticulous attention to detail, and his caustic humor, which has served him both in his music career as Childish Gambino and his time as a comedic writer and actor on 30 Rock and Community. His Sun in Libra and Venus in Leo are in mutual reception, a common theme amongst celebrity Libras, describing someone who loves attention, especially for their work.
Lena Headey is best known for her masterful performance as Cersei Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones, but it would be a disservice to confuse Lena with her cutthroat on-screen persona. Born on the same day as ASAP Rocky and Gwen Stefani, Lena is a dominant Libra, which gives Lena a natural inclination towards tolerance, peace, and moderation — not exactly the defining characteristics of Cersei Lannister. Lena's second most-dominant sign is Scorpio, which implies a strong will and confrontational spirit, which is probably what allowed her to play Cersei with such authenticity.
Like Donald Glover, Will Smith was born on September 25. How fitting, considering both stars had acclaimed rap careers in addition to starring roles on beloved sitcoms. While Donald left comedy television for rap, Will made the opposite transition, transitioning out of his rap career into a long and storied filmography throughout both film and television. Libra is dominant in his chart, which makes sense considering Will's easy charm, with the perfectionist Virgo as a close second. His Mercury and Venus in Libra show Will's slow, equitable thought processes and his chameleon-like adaptability.
It should come as no surprise that the new Captain America has equilibrium, peace, and balance ingrained into his DNA. Anthony Mackie was born on a cusp day, September 23, meaning the sun switched from Virgo to Libra at some point alongside the moon, which went from Libra to Scorpio. We don't have Anthony's birth time, so there's no way of knowing which side of the switch he's actually fallen on, but since his chart is dominated by Venus (Libra's ruling planet) and Libra, he's an authentic Libra regardless of the cusp.
As we already know, Serena Williams was born on September 26 alongside fellow celebrity Libras Lilly Singh, Olivia Newton-John, and Christina Millian. Serena's chart is heavily Libra dominant, with no other sign coming close to the scales. Naturally, this predicts her entrepreneurial spirit, charm, and star-status, but the determination that led her to become the top tennis player (male or female) in the world likely comes from her dominant sixth house working with Virgo to create an interest in work that emphasizes training and perfectionism. For Serena, practice really has made perfect.

It might surprise some astrologers that Gwyenth Paltrow is a Libra, born September 27. The sign most associated with charm and likeability seems like an interesting choice for the Goop creator, considering Gwyenth has a strange amount of online haters. Gwyneth is a Libra with Moon in Gemini, which leds to her communicating her ideas to everyone in entertaining soundbites. This is likely where Libra's playful charm worked against her — when her truth is saying she'd rather die than let her kids eat Cup-a-Soup on Conan, her natural ability to talk in pull-quotes occasionally works against her.
Queen of our childhoods Hilary Duff was born on September 28, making her another cosmically charming Libra celeb. Her likeability and inclination towards people-pleasing come from Libra, but the two most dominant signs in her chart are actually Scorpio and Sagittarius, giving her a mischevious charm, optimism, and enthusiasm. As Libra is both her Sun and her Venus, it's still a heavy influence on her outward personality and her love of love. Her biggest assets are elegance, gentleness, and goodness, something her fans can attest to whether its playing hapless teen Lizzie McGuire or being a mother to Banks and Luca.
No one exhibits Libra's natural charm, elegance, and grace like Julie Andrews. Born October 1, the same day as Brie Larson and Jimmy Carter, Julie and her birthday twins seem naturally gifted with an inclination towards leadership. Captain Marvel, a U.S. President, and the Queen of Genovia? Seems like a pretty noble lineage to us. Julie's strength and perfectionism, however, come from dominance in Scorpio and Virgo. Both her Moon and Mercury are in Scorpio, giving Julie great intellectual capacity, curiosity, and intuitive sensitivity. Meanwhile, her Venus in Virgo works with Venus-ruled Libra imply an internal battle between what she expects and what she wants.
Julie Andrew's birthday twin Brie Larson has followed in her footsteps of quiet grace and effortless likeability in the face of great fame. Also born October 1, Brie's Sun is in Libra, with a Scorpio moon just like Julie. Unlike Julie, we know Brie's birth time is 6:41 PM, giving her an ascendant Aries. The ruler of the Ascendant is Mars in Libra, meaning her natural tendency towards leadership is outward-facing, with courage, honesty, and dynamism befitting of Captain Marvel ingrained in her public persona. It's funny how these things work out, isn't it?
Born the same day as Neil deGrasse Tyson, Nicky Hilton, and Jessie Eisenberg, it's clear that October 5 Libras don't have too much in common. Kate is the most dominant Libra thus far, with 63.1 percent of her traits affected by extreme active Libra inner planets. Her dominant first house implies a powerful magnetism, individuality, and willpower which has served her well in her A-List-status film career, and Libra's presence in her first house means she stands out in a crowd because of her innate energy. Sharing a moon in Libra gives her aesthetic emotional reactions perfect for acting. If you're looking for a Libra paradigm, Kate might be it.
Simon Cowell's self-created lore paints him as a disliked man whose strong opinions take precedence over a desire to be liked, which seems out of the ordinary for a Libra, born October 7, but if you really think about your feelings towards Simon, you'll probably realize that you're weirdly attracted to his energy. Frankly, his gruff public persona couldn't work without Libra's star-given charm, which has allowed him to court the world's biggest music acts for decades while being a consistently employed TV personality whose disdain and approval are courted in equal measure by anyone brave enough to enter his orbit.
Libra's are highly invested in their relationships, romantic, familial, or otherwise. Matt Damon owes his career in no small part to his symbiotic friendship with Ben Affleck, his Harvard University friend and Good Will Hunting co-writer. The power of friendship paired with Libra's easy extroversion became an early blueprint for success with the October 8 celebrity Libra becoming one of America's most bankable stars. Matt's Scorpio is also dominant, lending him the strength and passion he's brought to roles like Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity and Sergeant Colin Sullivan in The Departed.
If you've been fortunate enough to catch Hugh Jackman's world tour The Man. The Music. The Show., you already know he's the most charismatic man alive. In addition to his easy charm, the tour focused heavily on a variety of social justice issues including visibility for Aboriginal peoples, poverty eradication, and LGBTQ acceptance. Born October 12, it should come as no surprise that a celebrity Libra carries both likability and a desire for tolerance, balance, and acceptance. His designation as the Guinness World Record holder for "longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero," playing Wolverine from 2000 to 2017, is just icing on the cake.
Born October 18, YouTube personality Laci Green might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of celebrity Libras, but she should be. The sex-positive online educator joins Slutever's Karley Sciortino in highlighting Libra's ability to be sex-positive feminist activists, with Laci and Karley being two of the loudest and most reputable sources on the subject. Laci herself may have told Seeker that astrology isn't real science in 2014, but just because she's a non-believer doesn't make her sign any less accurate when predicting her search for peaceful tolerance and her charismatic ability to gain a massive YouTube following.
Usher shares his October 14 birthday with Gen Z activist Rowan Blanchard, and although the R&B singer doesn't share Rowan's passion for activism, their big-picture thinking has served both celebrity Libras well in their careers. In addition to being one of the biggest R&B acts worldwide, Usher has launched the careers of musical acts like Justin Bieber, owns a record label with talent manager to the stars Scooter Braun, and is involved in various other business ventures including a co-ownership stake in Tidal, a partnership with school supplies company Yoobi, part-ownership of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and investments in the catering startup Hungry and nutrition company Liquid I.V.
We suspect that John Mayer suffers from the same celebrity Libra side-effects as Gwyenth Paltrow, whose soundbites have gotten her into trouble in the past. That's something John knows a little something about, with high-profile interview gaffes in Playboy and Rolling Stone in 2010 temporarily derailing his career. His Libra-like people-pleasing brought him back into public favor after a short-hiatus, showing how all astrological signs can act as double-edged swords. Born October 16, John's secondary sign Cancer gave him imagination and sensitivity essential to his songwriting, while a strong Virgo sensibility gifted him the attention to detail necessary to become a guitar virtuoso worthy of collaborations with The Grateful Dead following Jerry Garcia's death.
America's ideal boyfriend John Krasinski was born at 8:44 PM on October 20, giving him both a Sun and Moon in Libra alongside an ascendant Gemini. Like many celebrity Libras, John also has Scorpio as a dominant sign in his chart. It looks like Libra's likeability alongside Scorpio's strength and passion is a recipe for artistic success. The equally-popular Virgo association is also strong in this one, with an emphasized sixth house in analogy with Virgo giving John an inclination towards training, perfectionism, and attention to detail that must have been helpful when writing the horror classic A Quiet Place.
Gwen Stefani is quote the chameleonic celebrity Libra. Starting out as a ska star for the new generation, Gwen has transformed from punk princess to (questionable) Harajuku girl to today's Gwen, a host on the popular talent competition The Voice, longtime partner to country singer Blake Shelton, and successful solo artists whose lyrics evolved towards forgiveness and tolerance from the angrier hits of her youth. Her Venus in Virgo's eighth house works in tandem with the Sun in Libra to create an inner strength and passion that doesn't always align with her external aspirations, but for an artist, having a Virgo's attention to detail in love creates great, insightful music.
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist has a lot in common with her silver-screen spiritual counterpart, Captain Marvel's Brie Larson. Both are celebrity Libras, although Melissa was born October 4, and both have prominent Aries positioning in their charts, making them courageous, honest, and enthusiasm with Aries' firey spirit. Melissa found Supergirl after a stint on Glee and its accompanying reality show The Glee Project, and her love for music has never changed, with this Libra chameleon taking the lead role in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical on Broadway in 2018. Brie had her own flirtation with a music career in the '00s, so maybe a musical Libra destiny is written in the stars.
