Virgo: Emma Watson

Not only did the actor and women’s rights activist launch the HeForShe equal rights campaign, but she also started a feminist book club, which is right up intellectual Virgo’s alley. Watson continually uses her smarts to fight the good fight (just like her iconic Harry Potter character, Hermione).


Libra: Ruth Bader Ginsberg

As the sign represented by the scales of justice, harmonious Libra appreciates a sense of fairness. The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg perfectly embodies what it means to create a sense of equality for all.
