Sugar and spice, and all things nice

Male or female, Librans are the sweetest. Sometimes too sweet too. Their faces look like they have just finished a bar of chocolate and sniffed at roses. They are wonderful actors, and can successfully sugar-coat bitter issues. They are usually jolly good fellows, and if they appear perturbed know that this time they have found something worth being serious about - a tsunami, earthquake, divorce or somebody painting their room green.

Think Pink

What's this about pink that attracts Libran moths? Dunno, but both male and female Libras can be spotted at times sporting this risky colour. Librans are the 'Ashleys,' those stylish kids in the standard school sitcom, discriminated against by the regular looking heroine. They like fluffy, girly, scented extras in their attire and elsewhere. In Legally Blonde, the heroine is a typical Libra, who is deceptively a dumb blonde, only interested in makeup and scented notepaper. Blondes aren't dumb, it's the dumbo who makes sweeping statements like that who is dumb. But Reese Witherspoon herself is not a Libran, just a good actor.

Balanced people

Libra is the sign of the balance or measuring scales, and their ears stick out like the pans found in old-fashioned balances. Take a look at the photos on the right. That's because Librans hear both sides and slowly attain the equilibrium of a decision. And once they pass sentence, difficult to make them budge from their position.

The Libran Secret:

Cancerians are tough outside but soft inside. Librans are the reverse, so beware! Two layers of sweet chocolate hide their tough core. They wear the proverbial iron fist in the velvet glove. Though they look like birds with bright plumage on a flight of fancy, they are practical farm geese. They know what they do. They only look like merry balls of fluff to you. That's why many of them make great actors.

I would have to agree with you on most topics based on the Libras I know. You are right, once they have the facts, it is hard to change their minds.

@wicklesscandles We must catch them before, when they are wishy-washy, not after, right! :)

I loved this one Kenny and more so because I am a Libran. I have smiled and laughed all the way through. Shall I let you in on a big secret???! I think you may have hit the nail on the head with the Libran Secret. Not that I'm pink and fancy, but I think that sometimes people who don't know me think I could be a little delicate as I do hide the true grit centre at times. If I am determined to see something through, I will, to the bitter end.Very much the proverbial iron fist in the velvet glove!!

Also the 'balanced' paragraph was dead on. However this is our secret remember, Ha ha !!Thank you so much for this hub in the morning. Brilliant and keep them coming. I am voting this one up and bookmarking as one of my favourites.Take care and God Bless.

Kenny I am Libran and just tickled PINK to read your hub.

But the only pink I am attracted to is bunny noses, Elvis' mother's Caddy and the lips of beautiful women.

I did once have a favorite silk dress shirt that was a light cranberry color...close.

I must contradict you on one point, my ears are quite close to my head and well proportioned!

There is something many people don't understand about the significance of the Scales as the symbol for Libra. Librans "SEEK" balance, but the process can be a difficult tortuous affair. Witness the undulations and swings of the two sides of the scale, up and down and up and down, top to bottom, weighing the gravity of opposing elements. One common complaint about Librans is that they can't make up their minds. That is simply because we strive to see all sides of a situation before making up our minds. And, yes, then we are fairly intractable.

People are sometimes startled by the "unlibran-like" extremes Librans can exhibit, but to find harmony the exploration of discord must be part of the process.

Balance is a subtle and fleeting stasis.

I was born on the cusp of Libra and Scorpio. I have always told my lady friends that, because of this, I am a Libran Romantic with Passionate Scorpio tendencies. They don't seem to mind!

Thumbs up.
