When in doubt, look to the stars. In our Shop Your Sign series we round up fated Etsy finds for every astrological sign. A social sign that also values downtime, a nature-lover and an aesthete, Libra prizes balance and harmony above all things—and embodies it in all facets of life. Their knack for navigating group dynamics with grace is never more advantageous than in the busy autumn entertaining season, when their cooperative spirit and charm will enhance every room they enter. And when they're the ones hosting, you can bet that room will be styled to the nines, thanks to Libra's innate eye for design. To celebrate their birthday month, follow Libra's lead and pick up something special to beautify your home, cultivate a sense of calm, or channel the great outdoors—and pledge to take pleasure in the little things this fall.

An entertaining essential

Equal parts gracious and charming, Libras are natural-born entertainers who are happiest surrounded by pals—and lucky for you, making friends comes easy. This fall, it’s not a matter of if you’ll play host, but when. So put these heat- and stain-resistant terrazzo-inspired ceramic coasters out on party day, and you won’t need to stress about getting dreaded water rings on your (no doubt fabulous) furniture.

Indulgent loungewear

Libras don't just value R&R—they consider it an art form. Sure, “lazy” is a word that might occasionally get tossed your way, but the truth is you just treasure your downtime. Make the most of evenings or afternoons cozied up at home with a two-piece set of chic thermal PJs. The made-to-order tops and bottoms can be customized in loads of color and pattern options, so you can snuggle up in a pair that feels perfectly you.

An escapist diary

The Libran love of beauty extends to the great outdoors—the original source of balance and harmony, and the perfect place to relax and recharge after a particularly busy social period. The ethereal pines on this dreamy handmade notebook provide a welcome glimpse of wilderness even when the weather prevents actual alfresco adventures (a real possibility in this unpredictable season). With seven page options to choose from—blank sheets, lined pages, and even custom options for calligraphy and accounting—there's a crisp blank interior waiting for everyone.

Symmetrical statement earrings

In a Libra’s life, few things take priority over keeping the peace. Words like balance, justice, and equilibrium are music to this sign’s ears, so it's no wonder that your signature symbol is a scale. For a fresh take on that symmetrical motif, consider a set of geometric chandelier earrings that turn the scales' curved bottoms on their heads.
