Libra is the star sign of the bubbly and fun-loving Minako Aino, who was born on October 22nd. The ruling planet of Libra is Venus. Here are the positive and negative traits associated with Libra:
- A love and desire of harmony
- Overly emotional
Let’s take an in-depth look at these, shall we?
First of all, Minako is shown to be a very charming young lady. People around her are instantly drawn in by her friendly, energetic, and fun demeanor. As shown in the Codename: Sailor V manga, she is quite popular with her classmates. Her charming personality fits in well with her sociable nature. As stated before, Minako is popular with her classmates, whom she is shown to get along well with. They like to talk and joke around with her. In addition, they respect her enough to go along when she asks them to accompany her when she visits a sick classmate, Otonaru Maiku. (As seen in chapter 14 of Codename: Sailor V). Aside from this, Minako is very much a people person and a social butterfly. She makes friends quickly and loves to be in the center of the social scene.
Minako is also a lover of harmony. She hates disorder and any kind of disruption. To maintain peace, she is not above hiding her own feelings from her friends so that they will not worry about her. Aside from a couple of small spats with Mako (which are more often than not born out of their similarities), she has not had any fights with the other girls and seems to avoid conflict. Like Usagi, she deeply desires that all Sailor Senshi will work together and gets frustrated when they all can’t get along. In addition, Minako is very charitable. She donates blood in episode 109 and, in PGSM, does frequent charity work (including singing at a children’s hospital).
Finally, Minako is an incurable optimist. In fact, her optimism may be one of her most defining traits. Minako never remains sad or downtrodden and is able to bounce back to her usual bubbly self in almost no time at all. One of the biggest instances of this is at the very end of the Codename: Sailor V manga. Minako is told that she is forever “cursed” to choose duty over love and therefore will never be able to find true love. In addition, she loses the object of her affection, Adonis. Minako takes a few moments to process all of this before solemnly swearing to find Princess Serenity and the rest of her teammates. This truly highlights Minako’s incredible ability to rise above every challenge she faces with optimism and grace.
Moving onto the negative traits, Minako does tend to be superficial. She cares greatly about her looks and is often wrapped up in the aesthetic parts of life instead of focusing on what lies deeper. Her vainness ties into her superficiality. As stated before, Minako knows what she has and flaunts it. She takes no hesitation in reminding people that she is the Soldier of Beauty and the avatar of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty. Minako seems to take great pride in her looks and can get extremely insulted when other people don’t seem to feel the same way.
Furthermore, Minako has an indecisive streak. It’s hard for her to make a decision and stick with it; she’s constantly looking at other options and trying to determine what is best for herself. Minako is also a bit of a perfectionist. Doing something halfway or halfheartedly isn’t good enough for her. She strives to be the best in everything she does- the best friend, the best idol, the best warrior. She refuses to settle for anything less. Finally, Minako is probably one of the most emotional girls you will ever meet. She can swing from utter elation to almost suicidal depression in the blink of an eye, sometimes in the span of a sentence. To me, this doesn’t hint at instability or anything like that, it’s just a manifestation of how completely Minako throws herself into everything she does and how big a role her emotions play in her life.
In addition to everything else just stated, Libras desire popularity, respect and love beauty, love being in the spotlight, are idealists, have a strong sense of justice, and excel in debate. On the negative side, they abhor anything coarse and dirty, dislike confusion and sloppiness, sometimes easygoing to the point of annoying others, and can be overly extravagant. In their love lives, they tend to move quickly from one person to the next and love the idea of love. All of these traits are very evident in Minako herself, especially the one about love. Minako gets crushes constantly and her heartbreak over these infatuations not working out never seems to last more than a little while, as she has already moved onto the next crush.
For all these reasons and more, it’s clear that Libra is the perfect sign for Minako!

It really was a lonely and tough time for us. We would sometime see each other, but not often because we can’t abandon our posts.
However, thoughts of our princess and queen keep us going. They’re like bright lights in the distance that give us hope.
I saw Queen Serenity a couple times; she is the only one who ever visits me at the Gate of Time ever since she assigned the job to me. It was devastating seeing the beautiful Moon Kingdom fall, and watching my queen and only friend losing her life when there was nothing I could do.

I think there’s just some overlap with the designs (in fact, four Senshi, or nearly half of the Sailor Team, have red tiara gems: Moon, Mars, Chibi Moon, and Pluto), but Moon definitely carries her teammates with her on her fuku! All of her brooches have colored gems that represent each of the Inner Senshi (and the Eternal Article has gems that represent everyone).
