“She’s such a sweetheart.”
“He’s the most romantic boyfriend I’ve ever had.”
“She loves to have intellectual conversations!”
If you’re nodding your head in agreement after seeing these statements, you might be friends with a Libra. Libras offer an enticing blend of optimism mixed with realism, and they can have fun just about anywhere. As with all signs, Libras can also have some irritating traits, but their actions usually stem from good intentions. They don’t mean to hurt or frustrate anyone, and their lives feel out of balance when conflict arises.
Libras are also loyal friends, and they enjoy spending one-on-one time with someone special. If you’ve been blessed with a Libra in your life, here are three things to keep in mind:
1. Libras Appreciate Balance
Sometimes arguments are a necessary evil and can even help strengthen relationships. Libras understand this deep down, yet they tend to shy away from conflict. They are peacemakers at heart, and they like balance in their world.
Unfortunately, Libras don’t always know how to achieve the balance they desire when conflicts arise. When this happens, Libras may inform you that they need some space or give you the silent treatment, hoping the situation blows over. This is painful for those who like to talk about their feelings, so gently let your Libra know what’s on your mind, and try discussing heated topics in a non-confrontational manner.
2. Libras Enjoy Experiencing Life’s Luxuries
Many Libras love the finer things in life, such as 5-star restaurants and tropical resorts. They enjoy visiting museums, browsing art galleries and attending concerts, so they make great friends or lovers for people who value cultural experiences. However, there are times when Libras struggle with money management, which can be frustrating for frugal sun signs like Taurus and Virgo.
This trait doesn’t have to be a deal breaker, though. Try nipping potential money management concerns in the bud by suggesting cheap or free activities, such as a walk through the new sculpture park or a quick road trip a few hours away. These activities still let your Libra get in touch with their adventurous, creative side without draining their savings. They also free up Libra’s expenses for other important things, like lavish gifts for their loved ones — Libras have been known to go all out for special occasions.
3. Libras Are Social Creatures
Libras are generally very social, but rather than making themselves the life of the party, they’re more likely to be found having a deep, intellectual discussion with someone. This sign can get along with nearly anyone, though they often click best with fellow air signs, such as Gemini and Aquarius, when meeting new friends. Earth signs, such as Virgo and Capricorn, sometimes feel Libras actions aren’t as predictable as their own. While it’s true many Libras have an indecisive nature, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Libras just strive to understand multiple points of view, and they want to get along with everyone.
Though some Libras are natural flirts, this sign also values true love. They are happy to entertain guests at home or make themselves the life of someone else’s party, but they enjoy waking up beside a familiar face each morning. And when a Libra truly loves you, they’ll make it clear with gifts, words of affirmation and sweet actions, such as breakfast in bed. Count yourself lucky if you’re a Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius or Aquarius, as these are generally considered the best romantic matches for Libras.
If you’re reading this and going, “Wait, this doesn’t describe the Libras I know,” keep in mind that the sun’s position at birth doesn’t fully dictate everyone’s personality. You should also consider your Libra’s moon sign and rising, plus other factors, such as how a rough childhood or recent trauma may have impacted who they are today. This will help you treat all of the Libras in your life with kindness — or at least tolerance — even if you don’t understand all of their actions.
