Libra Characteristics and Profile

Persons born in the sign of Libra, "the Scales" comprise a fantastic balance of persona. They are well thought-out to be diplomatic and sophisticated, amorous and attractive, naive and nonviolent. Yet their darker personalities aren’t so horrible. They know how to be flirtatious, effortlessly prejudiced and uncertain. Peculiarly, Libra is the only sign of the Zodiac signified by a lifeless object, the Scales. All other signs are represented by an animal or sea creature or a person.

Libra is the very foremost sign of the astrologers’ Great Year and takes place amid 15,000 and 13,000 BCE. It marked the origin of Man and the manifestation of his circumstance further than basic survival methods. This is the fairly accurate date of the colossal Lascaux cave paintings. It also marks the facade of humans in the Americas, crossing over from the Bering Strait into North America.

Similar to the scales of justice that symbolizes Libra, this sun sign turn out to be good lawyers and judges. They are intelligent to withstand and gaze at situations with a serious, unbiased eye. They are between the most civilized among the signs, with grace and culture among their characteristics.

As a companion, Libras are ready to twist over backward to get to the bottom of an issue agreeably. The most excellent match for a Libra is a Gemini; they are slightest well-matched with Capricorns for the reason that Capricorns enjoys a little more thrill in life, despite the fact that Libras desires a more negligent way of life. You won't hit upon Libra sitting out all the dances that are for sure! Extremely easy going and likable, you will find Libra's companionship contentment to enjoy. Although they are sociable, they are also astonishingly peaceful and calm of spirit.

Famous Librans include John Lennon and Jenny Lind, the famous Swedish singer. Doris Lessing, Luciano Pavarotti, Oscar Wilde and Johnny Carson are just a small number of Librans who have enhanced our lives in the arts.

Element: Air

The astrological element of air represents movement. And the most efficient movement between two points is often thought. Air signs are thinkers. They emphasize the intellect over other functions. With active minds and a good command of the language, the air signs are the natural born communicators. They can be light and breezy as the breath of spring, but their words can also carry the power of a gale force wind.

Seventh House: Partners

If the First House represents the self, the Seventh House opposite it, represents the other. This can be a business partner, a spouse or any other type of relationship amongst equals. Most often, this is where we look to see how you relate to others in your life.

Key Planet: Venus

Venus is the planet of love and desire. She is in charge of romance and beauty. But Venus isn't only about physical love; she's also symbolic of the ideal love. When we see a beautiful painting or other work or art, Venus is present. She is the beauty of a rose as much as she is the attraction we have to someone we love. As the key planet of Libra, Venus is about the perception of beauty as an ideal. Here, she is the proper blend of colors, the right mix of music or the perfect poetic description of love, itself.

Your Biggest Strength: Your grace and charm when helping others.
Your Potential Weakness: Forgetting to take care of your own needs.

Friendship Compatibility

It isn't hard to find a company that appreciates your ability to listen with an open mind, but when you want a genuinely rational conversation, you'll gravitate toward your Gemini and Aquarius friends. Scorpio offers you a unique perspective, including the possibility of asserting your will without provoking those messy, direct confrontations. Leo's dramatic flair often inspires your own penchant for the performing arts. But it's Aries that's your best bet for BFF. The challenge of taming this wild beast and bringing seemingly limitless energy into balance brings out your fun side. Cancer's and Capricorn's "can-do" attitude offers nice possibilities for self-improvement and widening your horizons. One really big plus: these fast-acting types can help you make quicker decisions.

Libra Relationships

Libra Women

A Libra woman's cool exterior hides a passionate soul -- and men enjoy the challenge of getting past your seeming detachment to uncover it. Like Libras Brigitte Bardot and Gwyneth Paltrow, you're often downright gorgeous and know how to use your feminine charms to great but understated effect. Men feel manly around you. And, you instinctively know how to turn your guy on by, for example, wearing silk negligees or gold stiletto heels -- and nothing else -- to bed.

Ruled by Venus, you make an art form of being a woman. You're skilled at dressing to enhance your assets and using accouterments like scented candles and bubbling fountains to beautify your environment. But you've also got an excellent mind and sharp wit that your man enjoys sparring with. Your most appealing feature is your eyes, which are often large and full of light. All it takes for you to draw a man in is to bat those long lashes of yours and let nature take its course.

Libra Men

The Libra man understands and adores women, which is his most attractive quality. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, he knows how to treat you (probably because he paid attention when his mother taught him manners). Candlelight dinners appeal to this guy, as do romantic walks on the beach. But he's also the thinking woman's turn-on. His agile mind and charming way with words can keep you up half the night, talking about anything and everything. Libra is always up for a discussion about relationships or culture and is a champion of fidelity and women's rights. Some may find him overly intellectual, though.

Artistic and creative, Libra has a real flair for style and his home is usually beautiful. His sweetness is irresistible, and you can lose yourself in those clear, all-seeing eyes. Luckily for you, Libra is a one-woman man. He's also quite social and loves to cultivate mutual friendships. His delightful wit comes out at parties, but he will share the spotlight with the woman he loves. Chivalrous to a fault (remember Libra Hugh Jackman in 'Kate and Leopold'?), this guy is a true gentleman.

Compatibility Between the Sheets

Beautiful, diplomatic and artistic, Libra wants sex to not only feel good but look good too. Leo can transform even the most mundane of experiences into a legendary good time. Leo gives Libra an affair to remember, creating romantic encounters filled with drama, intensity and excitement. Libra loves Leo's expansive approach to love and is turned on by the Lion's willingness to do almost anything to please and entertain in the bedroom.
