Profile of a Libra
Libras aren’t very independent, preferring the company of others to their own. They are at their happiest when they are surrounded by their friends, spending the day relaxing and not doing anything too strenuous! Becomes sometimes it is hard to motivate the Libra to get up and go, they are so laid back all they want to do is look at the world at a sedate pace, taking their time and not overdoing it. They like nice surroundings and decor, the Libra’s house is sure to be very well decorated although, if they let their laid back nature take the reins for too long, this could be quite untidy.
Libra’s love adventure and anything that’s out of the ordinary. They try to make friends with as many different types of people, from all backgrounds so that they continue to learn something new an exciting. This isn’t hard, everyone loves a Libra and their charm gets them invited along to lots of unusual and fascinating places. They excel at all types of relationships – personal, business, family, romantic… everyone seems to crave the Libra’s laid back and harmonious temperament.
Seeming to have a natural intuition, Libra’s can sense which ventures have the best chances of making money, and they’ll throw themselves at these with a passion. They can think up amazing business ideas and inventions and make ideal leaders, preferring to be the idea makers and delegating out the work. However people don’t mind working for them, due to their diplomatic nature and get caught up in the enthusiasm of the project. Libra’s can also do very well in making careers of being an artist. Their money making intuition and creative capacity go hand in hand.
The Libra has a very strong moral compass. Is something is unfair, believe me they will stand against it. They will also stand up for people going though difficult times, hating injustice and wishing the world would work a little more in harmony. They need respect and fairness – after all, wouldn’t the world be a much better place if everyone thought that way?
Because of their preference of keeping harmony within a group or situation, Libra’s can bury their own feelings in order to keep the peace. Sometimes, they concentrate so much on keeping others happy that they forget that their own happiness is just as important. They can also have difficulty in making decisions, afraid that what they choose might make someone else sad. They also suffer from a lack of self-confidence and are always searching for the thing or person that will complete them. this is a contributing factor to their social nature, they are unconsciously trying to find the missing part of them, in someone else.
If a Libra can learn to say ‘No’ and get past the fear of upsetting others, then they will be more free to pursue the things they really want to. In this way, they will have a much chance of finding happiness and the missing sense of self that seems to elude them when they are solely focussed on the whims of others.
