About Libra

Libra Lovers Information

For the Libran falling in love comes naturally, as their fundamental instinct is to have a happy and enduring relationship. To the Libran life without love makes it hard for them to operate, they long for the feeling of being loved.

At times the Libran may become confused thinking that they have found love, when in turn it may only be infatuation. Some Librans prefer to endure a bad and unfulfilling relationship rather than setting out on their own, as they are not good loners.

Libra And Heartbreak

With the Librans' romantic ideals they may set themselves up with excessive mental indulgences which in turn may fall to the way-side. The Libran person must learn to heed their intuition and to guard themselves against impulsiveness in their romantic endeavors.

Librans are known charmers, they crave admiration and flattery and have an intense desire for things such as love, sympathy and understanding. They may be considered by their partners to be very hard to satisfy. Librans will often use their charm to gain help, favors and whatever else is in it for them. This will often cause problems in a serious relationship where as the flirtation be the Libran may not be appreciated by their partner.

 goes with Aquarius, Scorpio, Pisces and Leo (most compatible is Aquarius)

Best Match For Libra Is Aquarius

These two signs are most suitable in terms of marriage. Both have perfect affinities with their mutual love of society, beauty, and people. The only caution would be that the Aquarius' mate at times for no reason may seek seclusion and shut the door to any communication. The Libran must allow Aquarius to relish in their seclusion, afterwards all is well if Libra does not insist on any explanation.

Worst Match For Libra Is Virgo

This affair most likely will not blend well. At first while sex and curiosity are stimulated, all appears well. But, when both signs come down to earth there is a slim chance the relationship will go on with any happiness when both find the others basic qualities are still in tact.

The one thing a Libran does not like is criticism. And the Virgoan loves to dish it out. Not to mention the clash between the two when it comes to perfection, where Virgo insists on it and the Libran hates detail. Conflicts in this combination are many, but if both try hard and work to understand the others pet peeves, they can find mutual grounds of respect for one another.


Constellation Libra

In ancient times, the stars of LIBRA, The Scales, were sometimes intermingled with those of SCORPIUS by the Greeks, but they have always been considered as a separate group by the Romans. This zodiacal constellation is associated with balance - balance of both Nature and of Justice. Some 3000 years ago, the Sun entering LIBRA marked the beginning of Autumn, when days and nights were of equal length, i.e. balanced, and Roman astrologers considered that the constellation represented the scales held by Astraeia, goddess of Justice. Libra is known as the constellation of the scales. It is believed that the name comes from the ancient Babylonians. They felt that Zibanitu ( The Scales) sat as the judge who weighed the souls of the living and the dead. In Greek mythology the Goddess Athene who puzzled her fellow gods by holding a court of justice among people. Libra demonstrates external balance by intuition. Libra sits as the fulcrum point and separates good from evil.

"To be or not to be: that is the question

Libra Personality Profile

The Libran enjoys travel, sports as well as theatre. They enjoy nature, motion and have a real taste for the arts and entertainment. They are prone to engage in frivolity but are also very devoted.

Librans tend to be strong supporters of equality, the rights of man an universal brotherhood. Unfortunately they tend to be fence sitters and seldom put their feelings into practice. Librans dislike injustice and pettiness but many times fail to apply these feelings to themselves. Though subtle in appearance, Librans are selfish and self willed and resent any intrusion into their thought, independence or action. Librans rend to be very intuitive but tend to let their prejudices and feelings cloud the true issues. They tend to show good intelligence except in matters of their own feelings. Emotionally Librans tend to be impulsive and have a hard time seeing an idea or proposition through to fruition.

Librans have great imaginations and therefore may waste time daydreaming or putting themselves in imaginary roles.


Libra Health Concerns

Instead of confronting emotional problems honestly, Librans will settle for peace at all cost and in doing so become frustrated and bury their feelings. These frustrations can lead to many types of illnesses. Because Librans tend not to be assertive, an argument becomes overwhelming resulting in stress symptoms such as back weakness, kidney trouble and eczema.

Librans must constantly watch their weight as they may tend to turn to sweets to hide their insecurities.

Overeating can also be a sign of depression but given a strong constitution, overeating or depression should not pose any insurmountable odds.

Librans must be ever diligent in their guard against occasional spells of moodiness and depression by looking for fun experiences to divert negativity. They must avoid over-doing, nervousness and becoming irritable which inevitably leads to more serious medical conditions.


Librans Can Be Very Indecisive

Librans Tend To Be Just Thinkers

Librans have great intuition which allows them to better grasp human nature.. They seem to be able to see through and understand the real motives of others.

Libra is the only inanimate sign of the zodiac, all the others representing either humans or animals. Many modern astrologers regard it as the most desirable of zodiacal types because it represents the zenith of the year, the high point of the seasons, when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped.

There is a mellowness and sense of relaxation in the air as mankind enjoys the last of the summer sun and the fruits of his toil. Librans too are among the most civilized of the twelve zodiacal characters and are often good looking. They have elegance, charm and good taste, are naturally kind, very gentle, and lovers of beauty, harmony (both in music and social living) and the pleasures that these bring. They have good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced, diplomatic and even tempered.

Librans are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism - they are the kind of people of whom it is said, "They always make you feel better for having been with them." They are very social human beings. They loathe cruelty, viciousness and vulgarity and detest conflict between people, so they do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone around them, and their ideal for their own circle and for society as a whole is unity.

Their cast of mind is artistic rather than intellectual, though they are usually too moderate and well balanced to be avant garde in any artistic endeavor. They have good perception and observation and their critical ability, with which they are able to view their own efforts as well as those of others, gives their work integrity.

In their personal relationships they show understanding of the other person's point of view, trying to resolve any differences by compromise, and are often willing to allow claims against themselves to be settled to their own disadvantage rather than spoil a relationship. They like the opposite sex to the extent of promiscuity sometimes, and may indulge in romanticism bordering on sentimentality.

Their marriages, however, stand a good chance of success because they are frequently the union of "true minds". The Libran's continuing kindness toward his or her partner mollifies any hurt the latter may feel if the two have had a tiff. Nor can the Libran's spouse often complain that he or she is not understood, for the Libran is usually the most empathetic of all the zodiacal types and the most ready to tolerate the beloved's failings. The negative Libran character may show frivolity, flirtatiousness and shallowness. It can be changeable and indecisive, impatient of routine, colorlessly conventional and timid, easygoing to the point of inertia, seldom angry when circumstances demand a show of annoyance at least; and yet Librans can shock everyone around them with sudden storms of rage. Their love of pleasure may lead them into extravagance; Libran men can degenerate into reckless gamblers, and Libran women extravagant, jealous and careless about money sometimes squander their wealth and talents in their overenthusiasm for causes which they espouse. Both sexes can become great gossipers. A characteristic of the type is an insatiable curiosity that tempts them to enquire into every social scandal in their circle.

In their work the description "lazy Libra" which is sometimes given is actually more alliterative than true. Librans can be surprisingly energetic, though it is true that they dislike coarse, dirty work. Although some are modestly content, others are extremely ambitious. With their dislike of extremes they make good diplomats but perhaps poor party politicians, for they are moderate in their opinions and able to see other points of view. They can succeed as administrators, lawyers (they have a strong sense of justice, which cynics might say could handicap them in a legal career), antique dealers, civil servants and bankers, for they are trustworthy in handling other people's money. Some Librans are gifted in fashion designing or in devising new cosmetics; others may find success as artists, composers, critics, writers, interior decorators, welfare workers or valuers, and they have an ability in the management of all sorts of public entertainment. Some work philanthropically for humanity with great self-disciple and significant results. Libran financiers sometimes make good speculators, for they have the optimism and ability to recover from financial crashes.

Possible Health Concerns... Libra governs the lumbar region, lower back and kidneys. Its subjects must beware of weaknesses in the back, and lumbago, and they are susceptible to troubles in the kidneys and bladder, especially gravel and stone. They need to avoid overindulgence in food and especially drink, for the latter can particularly harm the kidneys.


As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Libran you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.

Problem:   Finding yourself frequently trapped in situations that have no depth and little value to you or the other person.
Solution:   Try not to pretend feelings you do not have and find a way to back gracefully out of a superficial relationship; look before you leap.

Problem:  You find that you do not really like yourself and/or beating yourself up over not being able to please another.
Solution:   If you learn how to please yourself without depriving others, then you will be able to please someone else.

Problem:  The situations that make you ill at ease is only mildly irritating to another.
Solution:  Try to cultivate inner security through spiritual strength and awareness.

Problem:  Feeling like you are nothing: your actions being frustrating to others.
Solution:  Developing your feelings of self worth by expressing the positive in your nature and not letting your elitist, class consciousness show.
