Libra, ruled by Venus, is the seventh sign of the zodiac. Being ruled by Venus, the goddess of Love, it is no wonder that much of Libra’s personality is tied to relationships and their interactions with others. They love to be part of a pair, whether in a romantic relationship or a fabulous friendship.
Due to their tie to Venus, they tend to be profoundly romantic and want their romances and even friendships to be what movies are made of. This can sometimes lead Libra to be a bit superficial as they aim for the “look” and outward appearance or the hot, steamy sex scenes instead of long, enduring love.
When Libra finds themselves getting a little carried away in the romanticism of it all, it is essential to stop and ground themselves. They can do this by checking in with their breath, being in nature, or walking barefoot on the earth.
Libras make for fabulous listeners and can be very diplomatic in giving you their best advice. But it would be best if you were careful of the information you share with them because they can take what you say and use it to manipulate. Libras don’t manipulate in a malicious way but use the information they have to try to keep the peace and make things pleasant.
Family Before Work
Libras are lovers and like happy relationships, and they are always striving for that. If you want a workhorse or workaholic, Libra is not it, as they will never put work before family and friends.
