Sep 23 - Oct 22


Represented by the scales, Libra is both balanced and fair. They are peaceful individuals who value partnership and relationships of all kinds. They have a need for both justice and equality, and will do anything to avoid confrontation from others. This is a brief yet detailed article that explains the personality and traits of a Libra, who they are most compatible with in terms of star signs, what careers are most suited for them, and what their relationships are like with friends and family.

Libra is an air sign, which means they can be highly intellectual and need constant mental stimulation. They enjoy scintillating conversations with others, whether that’s a debate or agreement.  Because they feel that they should always do the right thing, if forced to make difficult decisions quickly or to choose sides (especially between friends!), they may feel they are making the wrong decision and therefore get overwhelmed. They must never forget that they are entitled to their own opinion. Venus is the ruling planet of Libra, and this means that they are passionate lovers and hopeless romantics. It also means that they enjoy the finer things in life and material possessions, and they appreciate music, fine art and beautiful locations. Libras can be insecure and have a need to find their life’s purpose, which usually involves helping to find justice for others. They measure their existence in this way, and will usually rely on a higher power to find it. 

Libra and Love

Libras feel a need to find a partner in order to ‘balance their scales’. Finding a life partner is a big priority for a Libra, so they are more likely to have long-term relationships rather than casual flings. Once they are in a committed relationship, they will do everything they can in order to maintain the peace and avoid conflict or arguments with their other half. Due to their charming and friendly personality, they have no trouble making romantic connections with other people, yet their internal emotional turmoil can sometimes get in the way of their love life. Libra is regularly seen as the sign of marriage within the zodiac, and the sign values traditional relationships, as well as marriage with kids. The partner that they eventually choose will most likely have the attributes of being able to set clear boundaries, protecting them, guiding them when they are lost, and allowing them to have their own opinion. 
Libra and Friends/Family

Libras are generally very sociable creatures, but also tend to put a lot of pressure on their friendships as they likely expect too much from them. They prefer friendships where the relationship makes them feel superior to others, but this can sometimes backfire on them in various ways. Their indecisiveness is also a barrier to many different friendships, but they enjoy when someone opens up and takes an interest in them, and will form close relationships with those individuals. They are calm and full of tactfulness, so they can communicate well to others and explain their problems well. Without even realising that they are doing it, Libras can sometimes transfer guilt between loved ones. But, being in the constant search for justice and harmony, they will usually agree with their family in order to maintain the peace. 

Libra and Career

Like in their personal life, they need to maintain a balance in their professional lives too. They try hard to achieve a work-life balance, and will not sacrifice important family or social time for extra hours. Their avoidance of conflict can sometimes mean that they are inefficient at organising, as well as working in a team or as a leader. But, their need to find justice and their intellectual minds makes them excellent lawyers and judges, or any other career in which mediation is involved. They can also find great careers in the police, or even creative careers if they have nurtured that side of themselves from childhood. Because they find it easier to write about their feelings rather than communicate them in speech, they also do well as writers or journalists. 

Libras are the purveyors of justice, and will do anything for their friends and family, as long as it doesn’t involve conflict of any kind. Hopefully the above has given you a good understanding with this star sign, especially if you are a Libra yourself, or if you know one personally.
