Basic Traits of a Libra

Libra is the seventh sign in the Zodiac. This means they thrive on partnerships. They enjoy working with people instead of working alone. Libra is represented by the symbol of the scales. Fairness and Justice are extremely important to a Libra. They are always diplomatic and peaceful. They are well balanced and outgoing; always enjoying the company of others. The ruling planet for Libra is Venus which encourages them to enjoy the pleasures of the senses. They are witty and charming and make great hosts’ for some of the most extravagant parties. Libra’s often enjoy books, music, theater, and the finer things in life. They are quite classy.

Libra’s make terrific artists or decorators, musicians, and chefs due to their need to please the senses. They also can be great attorneys, law enforcement officers, and judges because of their natural ability to be fair and honest. Libra’s are extremely intuitive, so it is advised to be honest with them. They won’t let you get away with any unfairness.

Libra’s can be indecisive, however. They are usually easily persuaded, as well. That is until they learn some of the hard knocks life dishes out to a gullible person.

Libra in Love

Libra is an air sign and very intellectual. Their mates must be able to hold intelligent conversation, have good looks, a great sense of humor, and enjoy socializing. The sign of the scales is easy going unless they feel out of balance. It is important to them that you be honest by being yourself. Also, because Libra is a Cardinal sign, they are active and on the go. If you have your sights set on a Libra partner, it is helpful if you are a mover and a shaker. Whether you are taking classes together or going on a hiking trip in the mountains, you need to be making progress and going forward or you will bore your Libra right out of the relationship. Keeping in mind, Libra needs to be balanced to be comfortable. Healthy eating habits and exercise are very important to your Libra unless otherwise shown in the birth chart.

Libra is quite flirtatious and romantic. The partnership sign loves slow dancing, walks on the beach, and getting to know each other by long, deep, intellectual talks. If you land a Libra, treat him or her like gold and they will reciprocate.

An Example of a Natal Chart Also Known as a Birth Chart


All Librans are not the Same

We are all individual creatures with unique personalities, priorities, and habits. It is recommended to have a birth chart, also called a natal chart done by a professional astrologer in order to get a better idea of someone’s individuality.

The birth chart is an actual snapshot of the heavens, as seen from the exact place and time of your birth. There are 10 astrological planets, 12 houses, and the aspects between them that should be studied to determine a more personal astrological explanation of your personality.

Thank you so much for your interest in my work. I certainly hope the read was helpful and encouraging. Please feel free to leave a suggestion, comment, or constructive criticism in the comments section.

      Im a cancer and I've been with a libra for 4 yrs now and it's been a tough and painful challenge, I love her to death because of the affection and sexual passion, but..we've also broken up 32 times as well with her walking out every time, but always comes back, I've done a lot of research and went to seek therapy with her to try to find harmony, but I find she gives up after awhile, and starts the whole cycle of pattern again, with lies and drama, but if I were to make a mistake or call her out on it.. she bails, don't know what to do anymore can anyone help..
