Balanced – Compassionate – Diplomatic – Detail-oriented – Harmonious – Moral
Libras are interested in finding balance everywhere: in spheres of social justice, friendships, partnerships, etc. As such, they’re often stereotyped as being indecisive—but they’re just weighing all the options. The scales of justice are meticulous, after all.
Libra’s opposite sign, Aries, is known for boldness. Libra, on the other hand, prefers to keep the peace, so you may have heard that Libras are nonconfrontational.
Like the other air signs, Aquarius and Gemini, Libra is interested in ideas and ideals—in finding social order and pointing out injustices and inequities along the way. This makes Libras essential players in our current cultural moment. They’re the ones asking: What is justice? What is fair? Who is being left out?
Famously design-savvy and aesthetically attuned, Libras also place a lot of importance on maintaining a beautiful environment.
Additionally, Libras can be so focused on helping others keep the peace that they don’t always stand up for themselves. It’s important for them to vocalize when their feelings are hurt instead of sweeping everything under the rug. It’s OK to rock the boat in your personal life sometimes, Libra.
Their Venus rulership means that Libras are also known to enjoy the finer things in life. They like to be pampered, tended to, and treated to the best restaurants in town. While the typical Libra is not into drama, they do love to watch the human drama play out from afar. They’ll enjoy dates at theaters, art galleries, and anywhere that allows them to people watch and absorb some art and culture at the same time.
Above all, Libras know that love is larger than just two people: It’s about ethics, fairness, and remaining true to oneself. They crave a dynamic partnership where politics, vision, art, culture, and justice can all take center stage.
The typical Libra likes to keep an eye on what’s fair and does their best to remain impartial, hearing all sides of arguments, not jumping to conclusions or reacting out of anger. They know all arguments have several sides, and they’re curious to hear them.
This sign is also famously flexible and happy to let their partner or friends make the decisions about where to go and what to do.
Whatever profession Libras find themselves in, they’ll often take on the role of mediator. This means when anyone at the office needs to settle a dispute or figure out what’s fair, Libras usually come to the rescue.
They possess the superpower of being able to see things from multiple sides. And unfortunately, this can lead to a heavy dose of indecision and anxiousness. Libras like to be liked and will find it hard to brush it off if someone takes issue with a decision they’ve made around the office.
Libras are also famously charming both in and out of the office, thanks to their Venus rulership and that sociable air sign energy. Client acquisition, wining and dining, and customer service are all in Libra’s wheelhouse.
