The Libra (Kanji: 秤, Katakana: リーブラー, Romanji: Rīburā) is one of the fifty-two Clow Cards. It is under The Earthy and under the power of the Sun, Cerberus, and Western Magic.


The Libra Card shows a pan-scale, one side holding a sun and the other holding a moon. Libra's form is reminiscent of the astrological sign of Libra. The idea of the scale is also used as a symbol of justice and truth.

Magic and Abilities

Truth Magic: Although not actually displayed, Libra is able to tell when a person is lying or not.



Libra's capture is never shown directly in the series, but Episode 36 shows that Sakura had captured it over spring break (the time period following Episode 35).


Libra is transformed in Episode 53 during Sakura's frantic wave of transformations of Clow Cards into Sakura Cards.[1] Its transformation is never mentioned in the English dub of Episode 53; it is replaced by The Cloud card in the frantic wave of transforming the Clow Cards into Sakura Cards.


  • The kanji at the top of the card: 秤, (Pronounced 'Hakari') means 'scales', 'weighing machine' and 'balances' in Japanese.
