Fun-loving and willing to help out, Libras make excellent friends. Though they can be indecisive, once they're on the scene, they're ready to go. This flexible sign loves to spend time with friends and family, and doesn't hesitate to initiate gatherings. Sociable and suave, people are naturally drawn to them. And that's because they have a way of creating an aura of harmony around them.
When it comes to challenges, particularly in family situations, this balancing sign does tend to meld into the background. But when asked their opinion, they will point out both perspectives in a disagreement, making them excellent problem-solvers.
Finding the right partner will be a priority in a Libra's life. For those already partnered, maintaining peace and harmony is most important. A Libra alone is a sad thing indeed, not to mention unnatural. They need to connect with others. Being personally expressive and creative, they enjoy making their partners feel thoroughly balanced in a relationship as well—making them wonderful partners.
“Harmony” is the keyword for this sign. For Libra, maintaining this is of the utmost importance. They can be excellent leaders, and will work hard to earn—and deserve—the privilege. Truth and justice always prevail for Libras as they go about their days. Working with others or in a partnership is ideal for this social sign. Artistic and persuasive, these signs are gifted talkers who do well in any position that provides a platform for them to chat.
Careers that involve justice such as a police officer, lawyer, or judge are excellent choices for a Libra. They will also succeed at such occupations as diplomat, civil servant, interior decorator, composer and fashion designer. Group settings pose no challenge for the Libran—in fact, the more the merrier. Their strong sense of diplomacy serves well in almost anything they do.
If you go shopping with a Libra, it's best to plan some extra time! This sign can be terribly indecisive when it comes to purchasing. Balancing their money, however, is a snap for a Libra. Keeping a good balance between savings and spending money is a real talent for these folks. Their love of fashion and housewares can see them out and about in stores quite often. One of Libra's favorite pastimes is to shop for someone special.
