Astrological Meaning Libra Zodiac Sign

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac. Like the zodiac sign Taurus, Libra is ruled by the planet Venus. Where the earthy Taurus has a practical eye, the light-hearted Libra loves to create balance and harmony, which is why the scale is their symbol. Taurus focuses on material possessions and finds his comfort in good food and dodging stupid chores while, according to astrology, Libra is artsy and intellectual and seeks comfort from friends. Libras highly value art and beauty. If you’re Libra, you probably always look your best. Beautiful jewelry, a styled outfit, and a good hair day, that makes Libras happy!

General Libra Characteristics

Libras strive for balance in life and therefore usually do not choose extreme options, but rather try to make moderate choices. As a Libra, you also love fun, art, culture, and beauty. You probably think it’s important to look well-groomed and attractive before you step out the door! Because they prefer to weigh all the pros and cons before making a choice, Libras hate to make hasty decisions. They find justice, peace, and equal rights for all the most important values.

Libra Zodiac Traits in Friendships

Friendship is arguably one of the most important things in life for these social butterflies and Libras easily make friends with all kinds of people. It seems like everyone loves them! You as a Libra are kind, diplomatic, loyal, generous, and have good manners, which quickly puts others at ease. Friends can always turn to you for advice. You are a good listener and know better than anyone that every coin has a flip side. What happens when a Libra finds themselves in the middle of a conflict? Then we shouldn’t expect them to choose a side. Libras are all about peace and therefore will be able to find a compromise with almost anyone, even if it is sometimes at their own expense. They are real bridge builders! If you’re a Libra, make sure that you also listen to your own needs and do not discount yourself.

Characteristics of a Libra in Love

The romantic Libra is in love with love and does not like being alone. Giving and receiving love is very important to Libras, and they kind of live on it. Libras need to be careful not to lose themselves in a relationship, just to see the other person happy. Because of your charming and seductive character, as a Libra you quickly wind people around your finger. Although you probably like to flirt, you are not looking for short lived flings. You are interested in a serious and long-term relationship and are quite willing to search a little longer for just the right partner. Selfish people who don’t consider others are a no-go and are at the top of your list of turn-offs.

Libra at Work

People with Libra zodiac sign are great colleagues. They strive for harmony in the workplace and do not like to gossip. Libras want to make a lot of money, but they don’t want to work too hard. They’d rather not have dirty jobs or long, stressful working days. This doesn’t mean you’re lazy, Libra. You just like luxury. You are looking for a fun job that will never feel like work. Many actors, writers, models, and painters were born under the zodiac sign Libra. You are willing to learn new things. Some people think you are naive because of your gentle nature and beautiful appearance. What they don’t know is that you are a quick and critical thinker and can present your ideas with a refined argument. Making decisions, on the other hand, is not your forte.

Still, Aquarius can sometimes be a little too free-spirited in the eyes of Libra.

Libra and Leo

These two signs are both loyal and affectionate. Libra loves spontaneous dates, beautiful flowers, breakfast in bed… anything romantic. Leos know how to spoil their partner and expect similar treatment in return. They can also teach Libra to work on their self-esteem by putting them at ease and letting them be alone every now and then. A Leo will make sure that the Libra has space and attention, and not just let them stay in the Lion’s shadow. Because of this, Libra will not lose themselves in the relationship and it will help them to grow in their confidence.
