Those born between September 23 and October 22 were born under the Libra zodiac sign. Libra is the seventh of the 12 signs and is represented by the scales of justice, per Astrology Zodiac Signs. It is an air sign, along with Gemini and Aquarius. It's also a cardinal sign, as are Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn.

Ruled by Venus, Libras are known to be very fair and diplomatic individuals with a deeply rooted sense of justice. They're also very social people and generally prefer to be surrounded by others as often as possible. Being a Venusian sign, they also prefer things to be as beautiful and orderly as possible. More than just wanting things to look pretty, they tend to like the books they read, the music they listen to, and the content they consume to be equally pleasing and enriching. This is especially the case in the most personal room in their home — their bedroom. Keep reading to learn how to decorate your bedroom with your Libra energy in mind.

1. Pink bedding

Each zodiac sign has a color that resonates with the sign's energy; for Libra, that color is pink (via Colors Explained). Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, which is all about femininity, beauty, and the finer things — pink accurately embodies the values of both Venus and Libra.

There's no better place to add touches of pink than your bedroom, as it is an incredibly soft and inviting color with a lot of potential. According to Color Psychology, pink creates a sense of tranquility, peace, romance, and relaxation. If painting your room pink is a bit too much of a commitment, consider opting for a pink comforter, duvet, or throw blanket. Pink is a relatively versatile color, pairing well with other rich, warm tones like orange, yellow, and red and bold, cool tones like green, blue, and purple. It also goes great with neutrals, adding a pop of color in an otherwise flat room.

2. Flowers

In terms of visual aesthetics, Libras tend to like beautiful, feminine objects and appreciate little luxuries. A great way to represent that in your bedroom is by decorating with flowers. Of course, the easiest and most classic way to do this is with a vase full of gorgeous and fragrant fresh-cut flowers. There's really no wrong way to display flowers, but Current Blog says an arrangement of flowers should contain no more than three types of flowers with matching or complimentary colors, shapes, etc. Alternatively, you could display one single flower in a thinner vase or bottle.

If you're allergic to flowers or just don't want to keep them in your bedroom, that doesn't mean you can't still embrace florals. Saffron Marigold recommends hanging beautiful floral patterned curtains or incorporating floral bedding and throw pillows. As for the fragrant smell that flowers bring, they recommend burning a flowery-scented candle.

3. Mirrors

Those born under a Libra sun typically emphasize aesthetic value in their personal life, from how they decorate their space to how they present themselves. A large, beautiful mirror perfectly ties in those two aspects of the zodiac sign. More than that, though, Libras are very thoughtful people, and mirrors symbolically represent a reflective, thoughtful mentality.

With your bedroom being the place you likely get ready in the morning and unready at night, there's no better place to display a mirror. Mirrors can also enhance a certain design aspect of the room. For example, someone with a sleeker, more modern decorative style can enhance that with a sleek standing mirror, whereas a more romantic, soft approach can benefit from an ornate hanging mirror. Mirrors also make a space seem bigger and more cohesive. Be careful, though, as many designers warn against putting a mirror across from your bed. This comes from a feng shui principle that states having a mirror facing your bed can disrupt your sleep and cause nightmares, per Feng Shui Nexus.

4. Scales

One of Libra's most vital values is an impassioned sense of justice and fairness. Libras love to make sure that everyone's voice is heard. It makes sense, then, that the zodiac sign is represented by the scales of justice. Those with a more vintage style could represent this literally in their bedroom with some old-time brass scales.

While any scale can represent Libra's fairness and judgment, ideally, you should look for balancing scales. These are characterized by two dishes on either side of a fulcrum, with the heavier end dipping down. Debbiedoos recommends accessorizing balancing scales with seasonal decor, placing candles on either end, or adding personal trinkets. Lovely Etc. uses them to hold keys and spare change. You can find these somewhat easily at vintage and antique stores or look for new ones online, such as this one from Amazon. You can leave them as is with the vintage hardware or paint them to your design preference.

5. Records

Libras have a taste for all the finer things in life, including aesthetically valuable items, as well as music, literature, film, art, etc. The bedroom is a place of rest, but that doesn't mean it can't reflect certain aspects of your personality and media preferences. Having a television in your bedroom is a bad idea, though, with Sleep Foundation stating that blue light can mess up your melatonin levels and cause sleep issues.

Music, on the other hand, is believed to help you sleep by decreasing stress levels and increasing dopamine production, per Sleep Foundation. With all this in mind, a great way to show off your music tastes while promoting sleep is with a record player and vinyl collection. There are lots of record player stands with built-in shelves underneath for record storage, but other creative ways to display them include hanging them on the wall or dedicating a large shelf for displaying (via The Book Broker).
