Libra's strengths include being cooperative and fair. Weaknesses include indecisiveness and avoidance of confrontation.
Libra are fascinated by balance. They also avoid conflict like the plague, favouring peace whenever possible. They must remember that they have their own opinion. As Libra is an air sign, this gives Libras a constant quest for knowledge. Their lives need to be enriched with music and art.
In relationships, Libra wants to find balance and harmony with their partners. Libras seek deep and emotional connections with their partners. Libra also favours traditional paths for relationships and will look towards marriage. They want a partner for life.
People born under this sign are more diplomatic than any other sign; Librans are sociable, cheerful and charming people. Librans are the justice system of the zodiac. A Libra person has difficulty making decisions. Librans are sensitive to the needs of others. They tend to have very definite tastes, leaning towards the refined and expensive; when they know what they want they can be quite aggressive in getting it and keeping it. They do not tolerate arguments from anyone who questions their opinions. They can be passive but aggressive, charming but mean, romantic but demanding, and so on. Librans are successful as writers, composers, fashion designers, interior decorators, critics, administrators, lawyers and in public administration.
They are very fun-loving people. They desire fairness and stability and prefer to be very understanding and loving in their relationships. When Librans are fully involved in an emotional relationship, their sense of balance comes into play. They return exactly the same amount of warm affection and sexual passion that they receive. When Librans have to make decisions, they usually get it right. As a Libra, you have to develop your own opinions, as it is all too easy to be swayed by the opinions of others.
Libra zodiac personality
They like to find balance, and therefore they are constantly changing. They are often argumentative, indecisive, but suddenly change to calmness and tenderness.
They are sociable, sensitive, demanding, persevering, respectful of rules and fairness. They like perfect, deep love and complete surrender (and expect it from the other as well); they do not like the purely passionate. They are independent, but seek commitment.
Weaknesses: indecisive, does not confront when confrontational, resentful.
Strengths: diplomatic, cooperative, kind, unbiased, social
Libra likes: harmony, gentleness, sharing, open air
Libra dislikes: violence, injustice
Librans are constantly seeking balance, whether in love relationships, in marriage or with friends, or in clothing colour choices.
Librans prefer to "wear" rose-coloured glasses, so they will not see the negative things happening around them in order to maintain optimism.
Libra is considered one of the most lovable signs of the zodiac and adept at socialising with people. The influence of the leading planet of the sign of Libra is Venus and creates a need for approval from other people. More importantly, Libra wants others to need their company.
Libra can resolve even the most complex situation in a unique way. Libra is a graceful winner who thinks of those who have subdued them. But if the Libra is not paying attention, they may say many heartless things that will not go in favour of victory.
Libra has a sense of fair play. Libra cannot reconcile themselves to the fact that injustice is a part of everyday life. It doesn't matter if it is a little, like sharing chocolate in two unequal parts or something very important like a division of territory.
According to the Libra, everything must be equal because they cannot stand the fact that someone succeeds in the name of another's glory.
Although Librans give the impression of cheerful people with a positive approach to life, underneath that mask hides a cold and brilliant mind.
The Libra will not care to tell you exactly what they think of you. Very often, Librans know how to exaggerate with comments that refer to other people.
Some of Libra's best traits are a sense of fairness and an outgoing nature. They are part of the reason we love Libra.
Libras are natural peacemakers and are adept at being tactful and diplomatic in their relationships and in groups. They choose their words carefully and try to find common ground with as many people as possible.
Libras have a strong sense of fairness. They want to make sure everyone is heard, and are passionate about making sure things are balanced, especially when it comes to group events.
Libra always prefers to look on the bright side. They see the best in all people in all situations. They have great intentions and think the best of people and ideas. They always have high hopes of starting new projects and learning new things.
There are few signs more extroverted than Libra. Libra loves to be with people, and they also like to meet new people. They thrive on companionship, and surround themselves with interesting people who can introduce them to new things. Being social is one of the fundamental elements of the Libra personality.
Libras are witty, intelligent and excellent conversationalists. They have an active imagination and are quick on their feet, which makes them great company and great problem solvers.
Libra's are all unique, and these "negative" Libra traits are part of what makes them who they are. Libra's negative traits are all part of their love of balance.
Libra's love of balance can get in the way. They will spend hours weighing the pros and cons of even the smallest decisions. They want to please everyone and have trouble committing to one thing or another, even if it seems inconsequential.
Libras are peacemakers by nature. They are very good at finding compromises within groups, whether among friends or in business settings, but this means they also have trouble facing their problems and will put off difficult discussions for as long as they can.
One point against Libra is that they are a bit self-absorbed, so when things are not going perfectly well for them, they feel as if the world is ending, and everyone is against them. They have trouble seeing the big picture in times of conflict, and instead focus exclusively on themselves.
Libra are known to be frivolous. Although they are a lot of fun to be with, they are not always the most reliable. Many Libras are wonderful and loyal friends, even if they don't show up on time for their dinner plans.
As mentioned, Libras love beautiful things, even themselves. You may find a Libra taking selfies wherever they go, or spending a lot of time on pampering and appearances. They may be critical of how other people look or be reluctant to date people they think are less attractive.

We know that the Libra personality thrives in social settings...
Their romantic relationships
One of Libra's most notorious characteristics is their love of love. With his tendency to gravitate towards beauty and excitement, Libra is easily drunk on love. However, while Libra will enjoy many adventures and enjoy the company of romantic partners, he is very serious when it comes to committed relationships. Choose carefully when it comes to life partners.

Their friendships and family relations
You are guaranteed to have a great time with Libra. In addition to being a lot of fun, Libra loves to try new things and will help the people in your life to be open-minded. He or she is dedicated to making sure that the people in their lives achieve balance too, and Libra's outgoing nature and idealism can rub off on friends and family.
Here you will find more on this point: What the Libra sign is like in the family.
Your professional relations
Leadership comes naturally to Libra, and as such, they excel professionally when they are allowed to let their leadership skills and creativity shine. Libra does best when left alone to develop projects. However, Libra does not have the best follow-through, so it is also important to make sure they are surrounded by grounded people who are good at taking direction and getting things done.
For more on this point I suggest you read: How Libra is at work
#1: In your career, be sure to create new challenges for yourself. As a Libra, you'll have to change things up often, so to avoid looking a bit odd you can channel that energy into new ideas that benefit the whole group.
#2: Don't hesitate to let your true colours show. Be the great and loyal friend that you are, and don't waste your time with people who judge you for your compassion and idealism.
#3: You are inclined to manipulate when you are bored, so always try to control yourself when you start to feel restless. Channel that energy into creative projects or volunteering.
#4: Be honest with yourself. Libras have trouble admitting their faults. Don't think of these things as negatives, just a part of you that may need extra attention. Make sure you know where you need to improve, otherwise you could inadvertently walk all over people, leading to a confrontation.
#5: Speaking of confrontation, approach it calmly and from the outset. If you have to confront someone, make sure you have your points established beforehand and stick to them even when the conversation gets difficult.
#1: Compliments are everything to a Libra personality. They are extroverts, and showing outward signs of affection will help you gain favour in the early stages of the relationship, and will continue to help keep the spark alive.
#2: Don't pick fights or be overly critical of a Libra. Libras avoid confrontation, so it's best to be open and frank about things that are going on in the relationship and talk to a Libra as an equal.
#3: Let Libra take the leadership roles. They are very good at it, and don't be discouraged by a Libra who comes up with a thousand different ideas for group projects or activities. Help them pick one and stick to it.
#4: Show that you know all about balance too. Librans need to balance the scales in all things, and they need friends and partners who treat them as equals and who know how to be balanced and steady in all aspects of their lives.
#5: If you love art and other beautiful things, you will have no trouble relating to a Libra sign. Trying new things together, especially if it's things like exploring nature, seeing art galleries, or doing something creative together, can help you forge a bond with Libra.
If you're a Libra, you're in good company. Serena Williams and Will Smith, for example, are classic Libra examples of balancing work ethic, fun and creativity. Libra can thrive even more when they know themselves and are honest about who they are and what they need. We hope you get a better idea of what it means to be a Libra, and that you learn to be the best version of who you are.
