Dates – When are Libra People Born?
Libra is the star sign of anyone born between 24 September – 23 October. Ruled by Venus, love is indeed the thing that drives this zodiac sign. This air sign is sociable and outgoing and one of their biggest fear is being alone. Libra has a burning need to be acknowledged and appreciated by their loved ones which can sometimes be a little exhausting for those around them.
Temperament – What are the Characteristic Libra Personality Traits?
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, the element Air and the symbol for this star sign is the Scales. Being born under the element Air means those belonging to this sun sign are gentle, affectionate, perceptive, sociable, commutative, elegant and you like things to be in balance. This star sign is represented by The Justice card in Tarot, reinforcing their desire for fairness, harmony and justice, not only in their own life but in the world at large. It is no surprise that John Lennon was a Libra and one of his most famous songs was Give Peace a Chance.
The most important thing for Libra is personal relationships and when they find the right person to share their life with, they achieve the harmony they crave. In their fear of loneliness and in an attempt to avoid this horror, Libra may rush into relationships that would be better avoided. Their outgoing and cheerful personality means that they have no difficulty building up a network of friends. Libra’s ruling planet is Venus, so they are likely to be extremely attractive and stylish. This star sign can be a great friend but they demand a high price for their friendship – watch out for sparks if Libra feels unappreciated.
The biggest obstacle that Libra face, perhaps due to their symbol ‘the scale’, is indecision. Even though it is good to look at things from a number of different angles, Libra takes this to the extreme! Their inability to take a decision can leave others frustrated and annoyed at having to clear up after you. When Libra loses it’s sense of balance, the tendency is to become passive and extremely lazy. Librans are said to be the ‘children of Venus’ which tends to make them self-indulgent and just a little selfish.
Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Libra?
No star sign falls in love quite as often or as easily as Libra! They may only have met the guy (or girl) twice before they are already planning the wedding. Libra is one of the great romantics but, just like it’s important for their friendship to be acknowledged, in a romantic relationship, it is also essential that their partner verbally and physically acknowledges their love. Having a partner cancel a date or simply not being ‘in the mood’ can feel like a serious rejection to Libra.
Libra’s attractive appearance and outgoing manner means there is no shortage of admirers, but their indecisive nature can make it difficult to commit. This astrological sign is diplomatic and peace loving and will do almost anything to avoid a row. This can sometimes make Libra appear weak in their partners eyes, and it’s important that they learn to say what they mean and mean what they say.
Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Libra People?
This is where the ‘scale’, or ‘balance’ of this sun sign has real impact and Libra has a wide choice of work environments where they will shine. Their mediation skills make them brilliant diplomats, judges, liaison officers and they also excel in other legal professions such as law. Those born under this sign do well in any of the glamour industries, including beauty, fashion, stage, film and television. Their vivacious personality makes them stand out from the crowd and it’s no surprise to learn that Oscar Wilde was a Libra!
Libra’s fear of being alone extends to their work life, so it may be that being the boss or indeed running a one-man business will be too isolating. Libra likes to be surrounded by people, to be admired and appreciated and they make the ideal spokesperson for a company. This zodiac sign has a natural ability to make others feel at their ease which is a valuable skill in the workplace.
Wellness – What Health Issues do Libra People Have?
Balance is everything when it comes to the health of those born under Libra sun sign. Being ruled by the planet Venus means this astrological sign is blessed with natural beauty, however, a lack of discipline also comes naturally. As a result, Libra has a tendency to over-indulge and ultimately excess weight can steal away those good looks.
The kidneys and adrenal glands are the parts of the body ruled by the star sign Libra and those born under this sign are often prone to kidney infections, kidney stones, chronic headaches and fatigue. If you feel sluggish, depressed and just ‘off-color’ much of the time, then don’t delay in asking your doctor for a thorough check-up. Despite your dislike of exercise, in order to keep your body in balance, regular activity is essential, and this, together with a healthy balanced diet, and a regular detox, will help you to get the most out of life.
