Libra Personality

You are the arbiters of the Zodiac. Able to clearly see both sides of any given situation, your skills are renowned as judges, counselors, consultants, and diplomats. Your symbol, the scales, shows how you weigh information, and you like to look carefully at all options. For this reason, it takes you some time to make up your mind. You enjoy theorizing what would occur should you choose one path, then pondering the consequences of taking another. It is tough to dissuade you once you decide upon a course of action.

You have a strong sense of color and design, which can also be found in artistic careers. Painting, interior decorating, home designing, and feng shui can attract you.

You believe that life is about relationships. You constantly question your relationships with your spouses, children, fellow employees/employers, home, church, and community. When you are alone in a room, you relate to the room, and this is why you are very uncomfortable in a messy or cluttered space. You want things to be copacetic.

Friendships and a social life are very important to you. You possess the ability to entertain in style, and you always seem to know just what to say and how to say it.

Personal appearance is also on top of your list. You never leave the house without looking in a mirror and love keeping up with fashion trends. You intuitively know what outfit will look just right for the day or occasion. It must be of good quality, though, as ticky-tacky will never do. You also love things that are soft, like cashmere and velvet. Often attractive, it is said that many, if not most, models are Libras.

Have you been feeling a bit “off” lately? This may be due to the positioning of the planets. Learn more about Mercury in Retrograde and how it can influence you.
