Good-natured and peace-loving Librans are the hippies of the zodiac world. Their intense need to create balance around them can be attributed to the fact that they are ruled by Venus – the planet of love, harmony, and relationships. Those born under the sign of Libra have the ability to always see two sides of every story; staying diplomatic and open-minded in their thoughts and judgments. Librans are known to be fence-sitters because of this and one of their hardest challenges is to commit themselves to a decision.

Charming and sociable, Librans are generally easy-going and great conversationalists. Even introverted Librans can become social butterflies once they’ve warmed up to new people. The kind and generous nature of Librans attracts many people to them and they are usually surrounded by people from all walks of life. Librans are rarely the ones to start an argument (they hate confrontation) but if challenged, they will debate their views until the cows come home. For Librans, it isn’t about winning the argument but more so the principle of it. 

Librans are compassionate souls and will often give you [too] many second chances. However, if you push a Libra too far, they will make their subtle exit from your life without any tantrums or fuss – the subtlety is to the point where you don’t even realise you’ve been cut off until it’s too late. 

The indecisiveness of a Libra is their downfall. When faced with many choices, instead of just picking one, Librans feel like they either want all or nothing. With a fear of making the wrong choice, some Librans experience FOMO (fear of missing out) and don’t like to limit themselves to a single choice. This makes them seem quite flighty and fickle, always changing plans and – dare I say – people (male Librans are more guilty of this than females). On the flipside, once you’ve got a Libra head-over-heels for you, they are one of the most loyal and affectionate zodiac signs.


Spotting a Libra

How to spot the Libra woman:

Kind, understated and creative, the Libra woman is a passionate soul with a deep love and respect for the arts. Naturally drawn to humanities and justice, the Libra woman will have a sense of fairness, intelligence and leadership about her. She is a balance of both feminine and masculine energies; her soft and kind exterior is usually what people see, but under all that is a strong willed and self-sufficient spirit. Libran women usually have a down-to-earth style with a few subtle luxurious items in the mix.

How to spot the Libra man:

If the art of romance was a book, then the Libra man would be the author. You can spot his good looks, flirtatious charm and heart-melting smile from ten miles away. If physical attraction is not enough, he also has an intelligent and witty mind to capture the attention of people. A great communicator with a genuine curiosity for learning new things, the Libra man tends to have logical thoughts and great words of advice. Just like his female counterpart, the Libra man has a very down-to-earth style about him, but may also be drawn to luxurious and materialistic things.
