Libra Spirit Animals: 4 Perfect Representations of the Zodiac Sign

The majority of the signs on the zodiac have a direct connection with an animal through their symbol. Leo is linked to the lion, Pisces to two fish, Capricorn to the goat, and so on.

But there are a few exceptions to this rule where there are zodiac signs which are not linked to animals. Libra is one of these exceptions.

Unlike many other zodiac signs out there, Libra is connected to an inanimate object rather than a living thing. The main symbol for Libra is a scale, and this can make it difficult to know what the spirit animal is for those who fall under the Libra zodiac. 

While the zodiac itself may not link Libra to any animals, there are plenty of creatures out there that are a good representation of those born under the Libra zodiac. 

In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at 4 spirit animals that are perfect representations of the Libra zodiac sign, and why these creatures represent Libra so accurately.

The White Swan

The first spirit animal for the Zodiac sign is the white swan. Swans are majestic creatures with long craning necks, beautiful white feathers, and loving hearts.

These birds perfectly reflect many of the behaviors exhibited by Libras, and that is what makes them such a perfect spirit animal. 

Swans represent different things for different people. They are social creatures that are effortlessly beautiful, but a little vain about their own beauty. Attitudes that are often seen in Libras.

They are often also connected to grace and elegance, which are attributes that are connected with Venus – the rule of Libras. 

Perhaps the thing that most people think of when they see a swan is love. Through their appearance, behavior, and energy, swans have historically been connected with love.

From their long winding necks that can come together to form the shape of a heart to the fact that swans mate for life, they simply scream love. This love makes swans perfectly balanced, just like Libras. 

There is something pure about swans. Their beauty is not just found on the outside, but on the inside too. It is impossible to imitate the true beauty of a swan, and the same can be said about Libras.

Swans are spiritual on the inside, and that is true of Libras too. 

Should a Libra ever feel disillusioned by the world, or struggling with circumstances that they find themselves in, they need only look to a swan for spiritual reassurance.

Swans are graceful, peaceful, calm, and pure, just like Libras. Looking at a swan will remind a Libra of their inner beauty and give them the willpower to go on.

The Gray Wolf

In contrast to the pure beauty of the white swan that we just looked at, another spirit animal that is an excellent representation of the Libra zodiac sign is the gray wolf.

This creature couldn’t be any further away from the elegance of the swan, but the gray wolf speaks to a different part of Libra’s personality. Primarily to their view on relationships. 

Wolves are pack animals. For wolves, their connection to the rest of their pack is one of the most important things in their life, and wolves live their lives with their pack in mind.

They are insanely loyal, and they really value their connection to the other animals in their pack.

Libras view their relationships in the same way that wolves view other wolves in their pack.

Family and friendships are really important to Libras. Libras are insanely loyal to their loved ones, and they will defend them to the death – just like a wolf. 

No matter the relationship, Libras place a huge amount of importance on the connection that they have with others and will work hard to maintain these relationships.

Libras are known for their social cooperativeness, and this trait is key to the health of their relationships with those closest to them.

Should a Libra find themselves doubting the way that they treat others or fretting that they do not do enough to contribute to their relationships, they need only look to a wolf to be reminded of just how loyal they are.

The Black Raven

Another bird that has been closely linked to the Libra zodiac sign is the black raven. The black raven really is the opposite side of the coin to the white swan, but this perfectly reflects the Libra zodiac sign.

Libras are represented by scales and that is because they are perfectly balanced.

So it makes sense that they can be represented by two spirit animals that are polar opposites to one another. 

The black raven is an interesting spirit animal because they are an example of how things aren’t always as they seem. You may expect a raven to be a negative entity, but in reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Ravens are charming, smart, and peaceful – just like Libras.

Libras are represented by a scale because of the spiritual balance of their personalities. This balance makes the raven an excellent representation of the Libra zodiac.

Ravens are problem solvers, they face issues head-on, and they come up with solutions for the unexpected situations that they find themselves in. So do Libras.

The intelligence of Libras leads them to seek harmony and peace and they do this through problem-solving. Solving problems and persevering through tough times are key parts of the life of a raven.

That is why the raven is the perfect spirit animal for those born under the Libra zodiac sign.

The Cream Rabbit

Finally, we have the fluffy, cream rabbit. These adorable little creatures are an excellent spiritual representation of those born under the Libra zodiac, and that is because they connect to the social aspects of the Libra sign. 

Rabbits are social animals, they frequently pair off to spend time with other rabbits. They enjoy spending time in groups and thrive on the socialization that this interaction offers.

Libras are very similar. Just like rabbits, Libras like to spend time with other people, supporting other people and spoiling them.

Making other people happy is a favorite pastime for many Libras, and rabbits like to pamper one another and keep others happy too. 

Libras thrive on balance. Balance is integral to the spiritual aspects of their personality and they like harmony in the setting in which they live. Both rabbits and Libras will run from negative situations in search of a more reliable setting to live their lives.

This is why both Libras and rabbits are so well-linked spiritually.

Just like the raven, rabbits are the perfect spiritual representation for those born under the Libra zodiac because balance is an integral part of a rabbit’s lifestyle – just as it is for Libras. 


So, there it is! Four spirit animals that are the perfect representation of the Libra zodiac sign. 

As Libras aren’t connected to an animal through their zodiac sign, there are lots of different animals that could be connected to this zodiac. However, the 4 animals that we have looked at in this guide perfectly represent the key aspects of what makes Libras special. 

So, if you are looking for the spiritual energy of a Libra, consider spending time with one of these animals. Or, if you’re a Libra looking for reassurance, just take a look at any of these creatures to be reminded of the best aspects of your personality.
