Constellations [latex symbols] in Anki

I’ve tried to write some latex relating to constellation in anki but it produces errors in the "compilation " i guess.
My latex distribution in texlive:

pdfTeX 3.141592653-2.6-1.40.25 (TeX Live 2023)

For example, when writing this on a flashcard:

What is the first point of libra - [$]\libra[/$]

I get as output:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592653-2.6-1.40.25 (TeX Live 2023) (preloaded format=latex)

I think it’s saying that it doesn’t regonise the \libra command but i have a full installation of texlive so i’m really confused on what i’m doing wrong.
A similar error is encountered when using the \aries command.

Latex is an advanced topic, so can only help by redirecting to Math & Symbols - Anki Manual

if it is an anki bug, provide a sample deck and screenshot to check out
