Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, ruled by Venus, and symbolized by the scales. That makes Libra the only sign of the zodiac that is not symbolized by a human or animal. The scales show the Libra’s need for balance, order, and fairness. Libra’s are complex and sociable people who dislike violence and discrimination. They have a strong sense of what’s right and what’s wrong and aren’t afraid to voice their opinions. However, they always do it in a tactful and respectful way.
Libra’s are very charming people who make others feel interesting and important due in part to the fact that they are great listeners. They possess good listening skills; however, they also expect you to listen to them when they speak. Their great insight helps them bond well with others.
A Libra’s sensitivity allows him or her to instinctively pick up on what other people need. Libras shine when in a personal relationship. Their sensitivity works well in relationships because already when a Libra disagrees with a mate, his or her charm and kindness allows them to resolve it quickly.
With Venus as their ruler, Libras appreciate anything of beauty. This includes art, music, and people. If you visit a Libra at home, you may find his or her house filled with beautiful objects. They value money because it allows them to buy the finest things in life. Their exquisite taste and love for beauty makes them the perfect candidates to be designers, artists, and musicians.
Libra’s are champions of justice. They had to see anyone mistreated and despise cruelty, nastiness, and offensiveness. They are born diplomats and are often the first ones to try to bring peace to a clash between others. Libras thrive when they are in a tranquil air and will often compromise and cooperate with others to reach that state.
Because Libra’s are so sensitive, they don’t manager criticism well at all. Their need for admiration and to be praise for what they do and the things they own may make them appear to be insecure. Libras love to be the center of attention, so others may see them as egotistical sometimes. People may see them as shallow because they are so focused on beauty.
Libra children are charmers who are often eager to please to keep a good balance. They should get along well with siblings because of their sensitivity and dislike of unfairness. But watch it if the Libra child feels the injustice had been done to him or her. They will keep up a grudge until apologies are made. They may show a creativity and imagination that surpasses their classmates in school.
Physically, Libras are prone to pains in their lower back, buttocks, and kidneys. They may be inclined to getting kidney infections or having kidney stones.
Famous Libras include Matt Damon, Sting, Chuck Berry, Angela Lansbury, John Lennon, Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Friedrich Nietzche, e.e. cummings, Truman Capote, Dwight Eisenhower, Jesse Jackson, and Mahatma Gandhi.
Libras are usually the first to make peace in any situation as they strive for peacefulness. Their kindness and sensitivity will earn them many loyal friends throughout their lifetime.
