Why Are Libras so Pretty? An Astrologer Answers All Your Libra Questions
Charming, excellent at offering up advice, and the most stylish in your office—what’s that spell? Libra! Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Libras are the social butterfly of the zodiac that can befriend just about anyone (and fall in love just about anywhere).
But these hopeless romantics are more than meets the eye. Sure they’re beautiful, but they’re deeper than that (well, maybe not too much deeper). Here are some of the most pressing questions about Libras, explained by an astrologer who was raised by one.
Why are Libras so . . . cold?
Libras aren’t “cold” necessarily—they can be hot and cold. Their symbol is the scales. (Fun fact: They’re the only sign in the zodiac represented by an inanimate object!) They might come off as cold, but that so isn’t their intention. If you’re trying to go deep with a Libra prepare for an abrupt stop. Libras can be surface-oriented creatures. They’ve been stereotyped as vain and it can be hard to get them to dive deep, especially toward the beginning of a relationship. In the end, they are one of the least confrontational signs, so chances of them trying to hurt your feelings by acting cold? Not happening.
Why are Libras . . . also so nice?
Since they’re represented by the scales, Libra crave a deep sense of justice, peace and harmony. In short: They’re people pleasers. They’re not the type to pick a fight or side with someone. They can easily see both sides, which makes them non-judgmental. Their open-minded nature and social disposition makes them the ideal life of the party. If you’re at a house party and don’t know anyone—your best bet is to find a Libra, inquisitive, charming and warm, they’ll make you feel welcome.
Why are Libras . . . attracted to Aries?
We all want what we can’t have, right? One of Libras most significant lessons during this lifetime is to learn to be more assertive. Many can be so nonconfrontational it’s infuriating. Enter: Aries. The horned ram who isn’t afraid to ask for what he or she wants and take names while doing so. Libras’ lives are so centered around balance. Aries brings just that to their personality—what Libras can’t (mostly won’t) do or say, their Aries partner will. It’s one of those opposites attract situations.
Why are Libras so . . . attractive?
Ah, simple. Libra’s ruling planet is Venus, which is the planet of love, luxury, beauty, and affection. Being beautiful is built into their DNA. They’re also programmed with a dash of vanity (Kim Kardashian is a Libra, for example). They’re attracted to the finer things in life and oftentimes don’t shy away from, er, procedures to ensure they’re looking their youngest and freshest. Venus also rules our shopping and spending habits. Libras aren’t afraid to indulge and spoil themselves with the latest trends or clothing.
Why are Libras so . . . good in bed?
This air sign is the ultimate hopeless romantic—they’re charming, they’re beautiful, and they’re dangerous in the bedroom. And while they dream of being swept off of their feet with rose pedals sprawled across a king-sized bed, they’re also people pleasers. If their partner isn’t into The Notebook-style love story, Libras will play along. They aim to please.
Why are Libras so . . . popular?
Hello, social butterfly. Libras are the ultimate triple threat: beauty, brains, and friendly af. They love to soak up information, learn about people and ask questions. Their beauty makes them the perfect selfie partner. And their friendly and warm disposition, well, the perfect friend. Libras are an air sign, one of the most social elements in the zodiac. They’re also quick to mediate—when drama emerges in a friend group, it’s Libra to the rescue to bring the two parties together to problem solve. And don’t we all need one of those friends?
Why are Libras so . . . indecisive?
If you’ve ever lived with a Libra (this one goes out to you, mom), you likely noticed that they change their outfit at least four times before leaving the house. Pure insanity? No, just super indecisive. Libras require balance in order to operate, and because they can see both sides to any situation, it’s hard for them to pick a specific side. They love debate and playing Devil’s Advocate. They won’t tell you you’re right to make you feel better. They’ll flip flop between decisions and run every scenario in their head over and over. Making a rash decision is just too risky and might tip the scales.
