September 23–October 23
♎ (Balance scales)
The seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, Libra marks the first month after the fall equinox, one of the two times of the year when the seasons are “balanced” — hence, the balance scales held by Themis, the Greek goddess of law, who later became the inspiration for the blindfolded Lady Justice in Western culture. Libra is the only Zodiac constellation represented by an inanimate object; the other eleven are represented by an animal or a mythological character. Those born under Libra are calm, rational, and detached. According to the Roman writer Manilius, Roman judges are born under the sign of Libra and the moon was said to be in Libra when Rome was founded, and therefore the Roman empire itself began on a just and balanced foundation.
Librans are known for their candor and strong sense of justice. Their kind and friendly nature helps them maintain good diplomatic relations with the people around them. They’re also known for their charm and attractiveness.
They are true artists! Librans have the eye and talent for art and poetry. They are blessed with vast knowledge and have the gift of gab and are able to speak on any subject.
A bad day for Librans is one full of drama and criticism. They hide behind masks and are full of self-doubt. They are in dire need of constant attention and appreciation. They have a tendency to be manipulative.
Librans are perfectionists when it comes to love. They have an idealistic view of love and togetherness. They dream of having a perfect partner, so they’re indecisive about committing to relationships. Librans take their sweet time before they make up their mind, but once committed they do their very best to keep harmony in their relationship. They tend to be dependent on their partner and like to have them around. Libras are expressive about their feelings and love to satisfy their other half. Libras are one of the strongest and most charming catches!
About Our Yoga Mats
Our beautiful and artistic yoga mats bond a velvety microfiber surface to an eco-friendly natural rubber base. This luxurious microfiber surface actually gets grippier as it gets wetter, making it perfect for all kinds of yoga, but especially for hot yoga!
Our mats are printed in our Minnesota studio using nontoxic water-based dyes.
We don’t plaster our logo on your yoga mat. Instead, we hide our name somewhere in every design. You can read more about why we do this here.

Great yoga mats start with great materials, and Big Raven Yoga mats are the highest quality yoga mats in the world. We’ve arrived at what we believe to be the ideal yoga mat.
It’s a well-balanced synthesis of size, weight and cushion made from premium, eco-friendly materials. Our brushed microfiber suede top is a proprietary recycled polyester to help lessen our impact on the environment. By using recycled (and recyclable) materials, we’re reducing our use of energy, water, and greenhouse gases.
In addition, our base is made from biodegradable, recyclable, 100% natural tree rubber which provides both excellent cushion and great traction for wet floors. Our yoga mats are the perfect blend of art and engineering and function as both your yoga towel and your yoga mat.
We only make one yoga mat. Many designs, but only one mat, because it’s the best mat we know how to make.
Our yoga mats are nearly indestructible. No matter what you do to them they’ll continue to look and perform like new for years to come. (We know this from experience. We WANT to treat our yoga mats the way they deserve to be treated, but we never actually do.)
Our microfiber suede surface provides more grip the wetter it gets, making it the perfect companion for sweatier practices and/or more intensive exercise regimes — you’ll never need a towel over your yoga mat again! It’s thick enough to keep your knees happy but light enough to take with you on the go.
For maximum grip, lightly spray with water before beginning your practice. The more you sweat, the more you’ll grip, and the more stable and balanced you’ll feel. Prefer a dry practice? Simply mist the surface of your mat with a spray bottle to activate the grip.
All of our unique artwork is created in-house by women with a feminist point of view or by guest artists. We don’t purchase designs from stock photo warehouses. You can be sure that every design is unique to us. And you can be sure you’ll have an eye-catching mat like no other!
