Libra Life & Lifestyle
The Libra Lifestyle
For the Libra in Your Life
Best gifts: A cozy throw, comfy PJs, or slippers. Libra loves the Scandinavian concept of hygge, which means making the environment around them as cozy (and let's face it, as womblike) as possible.
Best spa package: A hot wrap body treatment. Libra loves feeling cocooned from head to foot with amazingly decadent lotions.
Best Cocktail: A mulled wine or hot toddy. A warm cocktail makes comfort-seeking Libra feel cozy and cared for like nothing else.
How Libra Unwinds
Sometimes, Libra finds time alone disorienting, even though there's nothing that he or she needs more than tuning back into his or her deepest, most real self. That's why Librans loves finding activities where they can be alone—but in a crowd of people. Of course, yoga classes are a natural for balance-seeking Libra. Other ways to unwind include writing, drawing, or doodling at a cozy cafe; joining a group hike; or a long catnap under the covers.
Libra's Social Life
A Libra loves socializing, and sees "social life" as interchangeable with "real life." Part of the meaning and joy that they find in their work is creating connections with coworkers, and this sign is often found helming the office social strategy. Libras are known for their "the more, the merrier" mentality, and they love connecting diverse groups of friends and family. They'll always say yes to an invitation, but they may spread themselves too thin. And while Libras might collect a large group of friendly acquaintances in their life, they may find it harder to cultivate true friends.
This is partly because Librans hate conflict and may distance themselves from people at the first sign of friction. By learning that good friendships often become great because the relationship has weathered some sort of interpersonal storm, Libra can create a richer circle of friends. At the end of the day, this sign relishes a packed social schedule, always wants to have something on the calendar, and genuinely enjoys a party, even if they don't know very many (or anyone!) there.
Libra's Favorite Season
Although their birthdays are in autumn, Libras are made for cozying up in front of the fire. Snow days, when the roads are closed and everyone is urged to hunker down, are one of this sign's favorite days—as long as they have their (very large) crowd of BFFs stranded beside them, ready to play board games, drink in front of the fire, and laugh together.
The Best Vacations for Libra
The Scales never want to go to the same place twice. They see frequent trips as essential for expanding their mind and perspectives. For a Libra, the more far-flung, the better. They love vacations that put them in the center of a completely different life. They don't want to be tourists—they want to get to know locals and fall into a local routine as soon as possible. For Libras, a sign of a successful trip is how many new people they've added to their contacts.
Libra's Power Colors
An ally, a peacemaker, and a diplomat, Librans' strength lies in their ability to connect with people, especially those with opinions vastly different than their own. These colors can help any Libra on his or her diplomatic mission:
Blue: This cool color taps into Libra's ability to put out fires and promote peace and harmony.
Green: A color connected to the heart chakra, green speaks to Libra's need for everyone to be harmonious and kind toward each other.
Silver: Libra's ruling planet is shadowy Venus, and silver—a mix of white and black with some sparkle thrown in—reminds Libra of the magic in seeing a range of perspectives.
Yellow: A must for socialite Libra, sunny yellow reminds this sign that he or she is like a sun for friends to orbit—in the best way!
These are the colors that Libra should avoid:
Purple: Affiliated with the crown chakra, purple connects to Librans' rational side, which can be a distraction because their best work is heart-focused.
Red: Bright and fiery, this color can be too much for Libra, who prefers cooler tones and less passionate displays of emotions.
Orange: Affiliated with the sacral chakra (which can be a problem area for the Scales), this color can bring too much intensity to Librans' bodies, grounding them firmly in the here and now—which is an unnatural position for this sign.
