Libra Zodiac Sign Traits
SPIRITUAL GIFTS: Warm Hearted, Forgiving, Diplomatic
Libra, you’re a true lover armed with intellect, and that’s a powerful combination. Oh how we love the balance you bring!
You have such a unique array of spiritual gifts, Libra. As a result, you add major dazzle to the zodiac lineup. Since you’re aligned with the Air element, you take an intellectual approach to life and are blessed with the gift of gab. We could toss you into a roomful of strangers and you’d be perfectly fine holding your own in conversation. At the same time, you’re ruled by planet Venus, which means you’re incredibly affectionate and loving, too. Always up for a good time, you know how to engage people and get them talking.
Inspiration is always striking you, Libra! You enjoy a vivid imagination and have more ideas than you could ever act on. True to your sign, you take a keen interest in the systems that affect your daily life. For example, Libran teachers are heavily invested in activities of the district, all the way up to their government leaders. In other words, it’s important for you to understand how these things work because you have a big place in your heart for fairness. If you catch even a whiff of social injustice, you’ll let your disapproval be known loud and clear. In fact, that’s about the only time we see your sunny disposition slip out of place. Unfairness is one of your hot buttons, and you’re willing to go to bat for those who can’t defend themselves.
A highly involved participant in your world, you shine brightest in a group setting and feel most content when you’re surrounded by your favorite people. You appreciate a good social scene, and enjoy sharing your thoughts, feelings, and opinions, as long as your audience meets your standards. If you sense the energy of a gathering doesn’t match your vibe, you won’t hesitate to make your exit. It’s all about balance with you, Libra! So you do value your alone time, too, in small doses.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH
You most certainly look before you leap, which is a good thing. There will be no regrettable, hasty decisions made on your watch! Those scales that represent your sign mean that you weigh the pros and cons of everything, and you’d rather make no move at all than choose incorrectly. Outside looking in, it may appear you’re afraid to commit, but nothing could be further from true. You just need plenty of time to feel solid about your plans, whether it’s how to spend your Saturday, or whom to make your partner.
If you ever feel unable to move forward, remind yourself that it’s safe to give new things a try and learn as you go. Don’t deny yourself something good because you’re afraid it might not be perfect! Also know that it’s impossible for you to miss out on something that’s truly meant to be yours. So rest assured, dear Libra, new opportunities will always find their way to you in divine timing.
Libra Sign Compatibility
BEST ROMANTIC MATCHES: Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Gemini
Libra, you are fun loving, flirtatious and share the natural charm of your fellow Air signs. You balance this with a heavy splash of street smarts, which means you’ll make fast friends with Gemini and Aquarius.
We also love your Venus vibes! A romantic at heart, it’s in your life purpose to share love with others, and you deeply appreciate those who love you in return. You wear your heart on your sleeve and when someone plays a special role in your life, you let them know it, on no uncertain terms. For this reason, fire signs like Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo can offer you the balance you seek. They view the world through passionate eyes. Your air vibes will fuel their flame!
Libra, you are remarkably forgiving in nature, almost saintly! You can let quite a bit of water flow under the bridge. If someone deserves a second chance, you’ll be the one to grant it. Even after a breakup, you’re totally okay with remaining friends. Preferring harmony to conflict, you’d much rather part amicably than have a big dramatic ending. Someone has to push you quite far indeed for you to cut ties entirely. But once they’ve crossed the line, you are completely done and there is no turning back.

HOW TO ATTRACT A LIBRA
If a sparkling Libra personality has caught your eye, who could blame you! Here are some tips for a healthy relationship with your favorite sign.
Ruled by the air element, your Libra is an intellectual, but they have a strong caretaker vibe, too. As a result, they often spend their lives focused on others, without a chance to delve deeply into topics of their own personal interest. So if you have in-depth knowledge in any area, they’ll admire you for it. Offer to help them out with your subject matter expertise and they’ll be forever grateful!
Also, Librans are ever seeking balance. They view partnerships like two halves coming together to make a perfect whole. So you won’t win any points by mimicking them, or pretending to enjoy all the same things as they do. They’re too clever to fall for this anyway, but they want their partner to be strong where they’re weak, and vice versa. Don’t be afraid to expose them to something new. Librans love adventure!
It’s also important to honor Libra’s softer, romantic side. You don’t have to get totally mushy, but do be open about how you feel. Libra is incredibly accepting and understanding, as long as you’re up-front and honest. Learn to read between the lines and really listen to your Libra, because they will sometimes just go with the flow to keep the peace. So make sure you don’t take advantage of their harmonious nature. Too much of this behavior will become intolerable. Remember, Librans are all about justice, so if they sense you’re not treating them with integrity, they’ll send you packing.
FRIENDS + FAMILY
Libra, you are a reliable, caring, and present caretaker, partner, and friend. Because nurturing others is part of your life purpose, you enjoy being needed and thrive in an environment where others depend on you. Taking responsibility for the well being of others is not a job you shy away from. We’ll often find you surrounded by younger souls, whether that’s children, or a member of your tribe who needs a leg up. As you grow more spiritually mature, you’ll remember to apply your strict standards for love and caring to yourself, too!
Always looking out for others, you are a diplomatic peacemaker. You bring swift justice to conflicts by helping others see eye-to-eye. But, Venus help the person who’s wronged someone you love! That friendly, harmonious Libra vibe will be instantly replaced by explosive fury. You have zero tolerance for malicious people.
The people in your life will seek you out when they need someone to play devil’s advocate, or offer a fresh perspective. This is the signature gift of your sign: you can see a situation from every possible angle, which means you can always find a silver lining.
Libra Career and Life Purpose
Your Libra magic is most powerful when you’re directly interacting with people. For this reason, you’d make an excellent nurse, teacher, caretaker, or any role that allows you to nurture others. Guided by planet Venus, named for the goddess of love and beauty, you also appreciate beautiful physical surroundings. For this reason, you often have a natural flare for interior design.
As in all other areas of life, you’ve always got both ends of the scale working for you. Your intellectual side would serve you well in banking, engineering, or anything that requires careful checks and balances.
Whether you go down the road of arts or science, you’re likely to make yourself indispensable. Life purpose is important to you, and you have a difficult time understanding how people can commit their lives to a job that doesn’t hold meaning for them. You believe in putting everything you have into your work. In return, you expect to be acknowledged and appropriately compensated. You take great pride in your accomplishments, and rightfully so.
