Libra will gravitate toward the following careers:
1. Guidance Counselor
In this role, Libras will shine. It involves using their wonderful people skills, capacity for considering all the options, and exploration of different talents and abilities.

The Libran affinity for art and culture makes this an excellent choice for someone with good taste and business sense. They know quality and beauty when they see it and are able to understand what buyers want. An innate sense of style and current trends also help Librans to do well in this career. A Libra dealer probably won't represent an uncouth, cutting-edge artist, though. They would prefer to deal in art that is aesthetically pleasing and fashionable and to have sophisticated clients.
Librans of both sexes are obsessed with image and aspects of beauty such as makeup, hair, and style. A natural transition is into the world of esthetics, hair coloring, spa treatments, or makeup consulting.

5. Interior Decorator
Librans are always rearranging and decorating their own homes, making this a natural choice for a career. Creating style and harmony is something they strive for in a many areas of their life. The only drawback is that with all the choices of paint, fabric, and furniture, they must force themselves to be decisive and create restraints. After that initial heartache, they are able to pull a look together fabulously.
6. Human Resources
The Libra native has highly developed people skills and is quite good at problem-solving. Libras have the unique ability to fire someone while making them feel like they've just received a bonus. Much of this career is spent interviewing candidates, negotiating salary, and resolving issues with staff. Their natural empathy for others and skill in achieving cooperation and job satisfaction is second to none.
Another career that allows Libra an avenue for working with people is the law. An added benefit is working within the justice system or fighting for what is fair. Libra lawyers are not as aggressive as some of their counterparts. Rather, they are able to win cases by careful manipulation and by using their charm. Libras will disarm by any means that will work for them, and the other side won't even know what hit them. Analytical ability, a sense of fair play, and persuasiveness draw Librans to this profession.
Librans are excellent choices to step in and make a fair call. They may have to learn to be decisive, but when there are clear rules, they are able to do the right thing. Natural peacemakers, they may even have to break up a few fights and disagreements. This job puts them in the middle of the action without having to actually get dirty. They love being at the center of a dispute and are able to calmly resolve whatever the issue is. If the uniform is nice, then that's an added bonus.
Professional mediators must look at all the issues and facts and help people to come to an agreement. This is what Libra does within their family, with friends, and at work. Why not make it official and do it for a living? This is an excellent arena to dissect issues into all their components and then come to an informed decision and mutual compromise. Libras love to discuss and analyze and will make great mediators by using their diplomatic skills.
Architecture involves using analytical as well as aesthetic skill. Architects must have an understanding of proportion and scale and be able to translate creative ideas into reality. Libra is an excellent candidate, because of good visual ability and intellectual capacity. They conceptualize, plan, and consider every angle. This career is a good mix of technical ability, visual sense, and the interaction with clients, contractors, and suppliers.
