Libra Profile

Libra is a movable air sign, and this makes you a thinker, with above average intellect and you possess large amounts of creativity. You are quick to catch on to new ideas, grasp a concept that others are still struggling with, and can produce unusual or original things with your marvellous imagination. Art in all its forms is in everything you do so incorporate this part of you into all your life's activities and you'll be richly rewarded.

Born under the sign of Libra with your zodiac sign the Scales of Justice gives you the ability to be a fair minded individual, always looking to give an unbiased judgement. Your mind can tackle many problems in a fair and balanced way and this is a trait that will make you very popular in an employment position where negotiation is often needed, either between employees and co-workers or between your company and another.

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac referring to relationships and your connection to the world around you. You are social, outgoing and have a love of communicating brilliant ideas to those around you. This is a great strength and you are rarely at a loss for words, even when things are not going your way at all. You can however switch off from the world around you and delve deep into your psyche for those answers you desire.

Your ideas are shared in a very natural way - another of your wonderful abilities and a very positive trait. You come across as a nice person and even people, who may not necessarily at first agree with what you are trying to say, may come around as your behaviour and persuasiveness makes you an excellent mediator and negotiator.

You are actually so good at seeing all sides of the problem and staying impartial that is often hard for you to commit to one side of the argument, as you don't want to be seen as biased and want everyone to like you. If you sit on the fence long enough you will get splinters!

It is not a good idea either to agree with everyone just to get their approval, because you are actually agreeing for all the wrong reasons. Keeping everyone on side rather than firmly committing to something can affect your dealings with people. You don't need to bend so much just to be accepted. This is not what friend, colleagues or lovers are looking for in you. It is your fairness that is the attraction.

Your ability to assemble the facts, look at all sides of an issue and not jump to conclusions before you have had time to really look at what the problem actually is, is one of your strong points.

Venus, the soft and gracious feminine planet, is your ruler. Your softer side is expressed in your home, the way you entertain guests, the type of furnishings you like to buy and even the clothes you wear. You have a natural flair and grace right down to your personal grooming and all of this is part of your Venus temperament. Others would have to blind not to notice your style and people see you as elegant and tasteful - and this is not just restricted to those who know you well, but even people who've just met you and know nothing about you.

Also you have great networking skills in your business side of life and because you connect so easily with people can bring good contacts into the company. Again your skill in being able to see several sides of an issue makes you invaluable when it comes to unbiased decisions.

Venus being the planet of love sends you in search of your soul mate. This is your big dream, even your life mission and you will go to great lengths to meet lots of people in the hope that one of those at that party on Saturday night may be your perfect match. One day you will be right! And you will have lots to give to this lucky person.

Once you have connected with that special person, Librans can find peace and satisfaction. The life that they have been looking for with work and family will totally fulfil them and they will give all their energy to making this new life work to the best possible degree.

Libra Cusps

Libra - Virgo Cusp

The junction point of two star signs is called the cusp. This is a change over period when those born in this interval, in your case between the 21st and 29th of September, will partake of some of the characteristics of the previous star sign, namely Virgo.

The combined influence of the two ruling planets that is Venus the ruler of Libra and Mercury, the ruler of Virgo endow you with a very quick and analytical mind. You have an extended awareness and can apply this to both practical matters as well as spiritual insights as well.

Because you are such a rational person you take on the critical aspects of Virgo and can sometimes be extremely difficult to deal with. Your mind is in hyper mode much of the time and this can tire you out as well as get people off side.

Relationships are to be felt and ideas are there to be thought about. Try switching these around although it's not a bad idea to keep a balance of these other areas of your life and by doing so the Virgo - Libra combination will serve you well.

An important point I should make is that Virgo being the sign of health and Libra being the sign of sociability, one may affect the other. Living life too hard, on the razors edge is not a good thing for you. If you are as aware as what I've indicated, it will start to make sense when you're not living in harmony with what nature has intended.

You have a mixture of emotion and mentality and at times when you oscillate between the two. You try to make decisions with your feelings and try to analyse emotional relationships with your mind. Don't you think this is back to front Libra?

Your bodily signals will be quite clearly pronounced and you should listen to what these signals are telling you. Try to keep balance on your mind, don't let the critical side of Virgo overtake your sensibilities and be gentle on yourself because Virgo can be their own worst self critics. Love yourself Libra!

Libra - Scorpio Cusp

The Libra - Scorpio cusp is an intense and passionate one. If you are born between the 19th and the 24th you'll have strong elements of Scorpio influencing your personality.

This is an exciting combination which endows you with both social graces and intense sexual magnetism. Those born in this cusp are probably some of the most sexually switched on individuals in the Zodiac.

You could easily persuade others to do whatever you want them to do but particularly in the bedroom. This combination makes you a conqueror of the opposite sex. And fortunately you may have troubles with commitment being born in this cusp and for that reason you'll need to delve into your past to see what elements of your upbringing have influenced you and may be working against your best interests.

Although you are overly critical, this usually comes from a deep level of devotion to friends and family and often people don't see this. Try to be softer in the way you handle the one's you love. Your desire to push people to bring out their best may backfire and cause you a lot of troubles.

You have a wonderful sense of intuition and your judgment is profoundly well developed. You could use both of these attributes to come up with conclusions that others are dazzled by. People do wonder how you come up with the ideas that you do and there is an element of mental brilliance associated with your birth during this time of the year.

There's a great impulsiveness in your nature which means you need to be careful about being overly self - indulgent or developing compulsions that are hard to overcome. Laziness too which is not normally evident in the Scorpio could sneak in to your personality so always fight the urge to lay back and become a couch potato.

Overall this cuspal influence is excellent as it brings eventually peace and harmony and this Scorpionic determination to achieve what it is you so desperately desire in life.

Libra At Large

September 24 - October 3

If you're born between the 24th September and 3rd October you are a true diehard Libran with the quality of Venus fully dominating your life. You are artistic, caring, full of love and social warmth with many friends, but perhaps too many even for you at times.

October 4 - 13

Librans born between the 4th and 13th October are a little "out there" by nature but harmless. Your life is a bundle of fun and you like the surprises that are thrown at you from time to time. Expect the unexpected could be your mantra.

Ocotber 14 - 23

The final portion of Libra is between the 14th and 23rd October. If this is your birth date you are the type of Libran who is constantly on the hunt for knowledge and information - an almost insatiable thirst. You will never tire of learning new things and could be kindly termed the eternal student. As well you will never grow old as Mercury's co-rulership of your life ensures a youthful attitude and sprightly future.

Playboy

Conversationalist

The Libran male is the epitome of charm. Ruled by the magnificent planet Venus, which endows you with an innate sense of grace and style, you inspire awe wherever you go.

The influence of Venus means that Librans are gifted with attract- iveness and a charming personality from birth. Being with you can be rather addictive for others, and notwithstanding how much you adore indulgence and fame, make sure others don't advantage of you.

Librans are incapable of confrontations of any nature, and the men of this star sign are no exception. Unsurprisingly, when meaningful discussions turn into arguments, you can find a Libran male scut- tling for cover. Even if you hope against hope, this trait will never change. On a happier note, the Libran man is always open to dialogue. What he dislikes is conflict, raised voices and abuse.

A Libran male likes to toy with a variety of romantic partners and is remarkably suave and debonair in his manner. Hailing from the zodiac element of air, he has a keen imagination and intellect, but he is also assailed by restlessness and wavering thoughts. This may be due to the fact that Libra is a moveable sign. As it is connected to the air, Libra is hard to bottle up and contain.

The advantageous quality of air, apart from lending a refined intel- lectual and artistic inclination, is that it makes you inclined towards discussions of politics, religion, human nature and relationships. This quality also reveals itself in your sharp wit and humour, which you bring to any debate or argument. At the same time, give people the opportunity to put forward their impressions before making hasty judgments.

Libran men have a remarkably intense attraction to relationships. Whether they are business or personal, relationships are your underlying motivation and inspiration.

Though independent ventures may come your way, you thrive best among people. Remember, your zodiac element is air, so you love to share ideas and talk. Although you exhibit remarkable social skills with a small group of people, you're not one to take centre stage in larger groups.

I insinuated earlier that you're a playboy at heart, but when you finally find that special someone, you care for them unreservedly and share all that you possess. Family harmony is critical for ensuring your future happiness and joy.

The most outstanding quality you possess is your relentless pursuit to understand human nature. You're highly sensitive and perceptive, keenly aware of the unfairness and prejudices plaguing society, as well as the spiritual and philosophical anomalies that exist within it. Many Librans employ their analytical powers to seek answers that lie beyond the physical realm of this world.

You're also sexy, Libra, and like to repeatedly test the waters to ensure you're attractive and desired. This is a trait stemming from your indecisiveness, which is so intrinsic to your sign.

You are particularly finicky and demanding of the people in your life. They need to tick an array of boxes, such as grace, intellect, humour, wit and sensitivity towards the human condition. Since you love to play with ideas and make lively conversation, having friends with a similar bent will allow you to keep boredom at bay.

Libra Woman

Sexy

Cheerful

Objective

Faltering 

Talkative

All Libran women are proud to hail from this star sign as it is the epitome of poise, grace and passion for life. Your effervescent Libran quality reveals itself in the vibrant energy you carry yourself with, even in times of great difficulty. Your sparkling personality, enhanced by your keen intelligence and wit, is captivating to others. You're clearly a woman of looks, charm and brains, who is also broadminded and a great conversationalist.

The Libran woman is blessed with the enviable knack of employing prudence and tactfulness in difficult circumstances, even ones that leave others scratching their heads. Being a natural mediator with unbiased judgment, you're often swift to cut through the chaos and arrive at a solution that fosters harmony and benefits everyone. This may explain why people naturally cling to you.

You're compassionate, and you happily forsake your own time and needs to support others. You can't see yourself relegated to the lowest common denomin- ator. Mediocrity is not an option for you and you like to set your standards high and not socialise with those of a lower class or who may sully your name. To you, integrity is paramount in your relationships.

On the whole, the greatest quest for a Libran woman is to find her ideal soul mate, the man who will sweep her off her feet. You are a hopeless dreamer, and the quest for an ideal soul mate is the most defining element of your life. When committed, you leave no stone unturned in maintaining happiness, trust and peace in your relationship. You can also get so involved that your partner's busi- ness may become a critical concern in your life as well. Remember, your presence is to help support your partner and act as corner- stone to their success.

You are sharp-witted and on the ball when dealing with others. Behind the perfect poise and charm is an astute mind, which is perpetually dissecting circumstances and people. This is why we come across a lot of Libran women at the helm of businesses and swathed in success and recognition. Your diplomacy allows you to blend with a wide range of people, and you're not someone who looks down on others.

You're chatty and love to entertain, and you create a haven to reflect this. People are instantly attracted to this space and are captivated by the extraordinary energy and friendship you display. You like your home to exude warmth, sophistication and grace, which are intrinsic parts of your personality.

Try to rely on yourself rather than others for your happiness. When it comes to seeking the perfect partner, your indecisiveness may create a revolving door of suitors who are unreliable and incompat- ible. Play the field, but don't lower your standards.

Interestingly, while balance is your key word, there will be times in your life when you struggle to achieve equilibrium. Move steadily through life and relationships and don't let them spiral out of control. Stabilise your emotions and control your hypersensitivity as these qualities can make you dissect even innocuous statements and encounters. Instead of being a constant victim, work on your self-confidence and intuition, which you possess in abundance.

Libra Child

 Venus, the ruler of Libra, brings you a child that is warm, loving and extremely attractive no matter whether that child is a boy or a girl. Their innate charm and energy will draw others to them from a very early age. Social activities will be high on their agenda from the time they can walk and talk, which they will probably do at a young age.

The Libran child has wonderful conversational skills and don't hesitate to join in on any topic that the adults may be discussing, even if they are not all that sure what the topic is about. Their spontaneity for conversation is charming and will bring many a smile to an adult face. These skills should be developed from an early age as the Libran child is intelligent and will soak up knowledge like a sponge.

A peaceful home environment is vitally important to the Libran child and anything that disrupts this harmony will make them tense and anxious. Harsh words, arguments between parents or other children really disturbs their peaceful nature and in the extreme could make them introverted.

Relaxation and play is vitally important to the Libran child, anything to help them unwind and develop their inner peace. They love music, dance, painting and other activities that combine their creative skills with dexterity. Your Libran child will exhibit artistic skills as soon as they can speak, so provide them with educational toys and books to help them develop. You will be surprised how advanced their drawing and painting skills are.

The Libran child is a natural debater and with their speech and communication skills you, as a parent, had better be on your toes. They will give you a run for your money if you disagree with them and you'd better have a good reason for doing so!

Some Libran children develop behavioural problems but much of this may be related to their diet. Teach them from an early age how important diet is for them and give them the skills to decide what foods to eat, or more importantly not to eat.

Never treat your Libran child as though they're too young or inexperienced to understand what you are saying as they will feel insulted. They need plenty of privacy and a space where they can enjoy their own quiet time. Give them plenty of nurturing and love to which they will respond tenfold.

Libra Lover

Ruled by the planet Venus, you're the eternal lover and the most loveable star sign of the zodiac. You respond instinctively to love and are enamoured by the concept of romance from an early age.


Your finest quality is your propensity to see the goodness in others, especially the ones you love. Regardless of the circumstances, you aim to appreciate and admire your significant other. This may not be a simple affair as your high standards can make you very demanding. This may be one of the reasons why a majority of Libran men like to play the field before surrendering their hearts to their chosen one.

As mentioned, you are an expert at setting astronomical standards, making it excruciatingly hard both for yourself and the person you love. This may put people on such a high pedestal that you refuse to believe they're only human when they fail.

Love consumes the majority of your attention and reveals itself in a burgeoning family life, a content spouse and children that you dote upon. To you, nothing is more important than this. At the same time, do not forget to rejuvenate your soul by seeking space and independence, as well as conversations with a diverse mix of people and temperaments. To this end, your choice of partner is pivotal. You need someone who is sensitive and understanding about your need for space. You're not someone who allows others to tie them down and smother their social and intellectual life. This would be a recipe for disaster.

In matters of love, take your time to weigh all possibilities before taking the plunge. At the same time, Libra, try to loosen up and forgive other people's shortcomings.

You seek a partner with grace, style, intellect, dedication and wit. You expect them to display greater or similar fervour and enthu- siasm for life. Settling down with a reticent individual may not be a good idea as you grow best in an environment with constant dialogue in which you communicate your fears, feelings, joys and hope for building a life together.

On the whole, you're a fantastic lover, except that your wavering mind and idealistic romanticism may often undermine the thing you cherish so deeply. If you relax and accept others for who they are, Libra, you're set to go!

Libra Friend

In my many years as an astrologer, I am yet to encounter a Libran who isn't compassionate or impartial. You're the eternal peace- maker, and what better way to show this than through the care and objectivity with which you deal with yourself and others.


Librans are great storytellers, but they're equally adept at listening. Not only do they listen to your tales, they have an incredible knack for helping you view life from an unbiased perspective. Come rain or shine, one can bank on your Libran friend for sane advice.

Your Libran friend has a tendency to surpass themselves in their attempt to win acceptance from others. This acute desire to please may leave you feeling displeased and frustrated, especially when you are asking them for advice on a decision. At such moments, Libra may be evasive and indecisive as they don't want to offend others or hurt their feelings.

Librans are oblivious to the strata of society that others come from, and they can happily engage with people of any culture or class. Though uncompromising in their standards, they never look down on those of an inferior status. Unconcerned with material pleas- ures, they genuinely care about their loved ones and endeavour to connect with the spiritual aspect of another human being.

Since they are hugely devoted to nurturing and loving, whether it's a relative, colleague, neighbour or friend, Librans always strive to enhance their relationships and create harmony around them. The primary reason for this is because Librans detest solitude of any kind. However, being alone is not the same as being lonely. This is why I always advise my Libran friends and clients to foster a relationship with themselves before they build a castle with the people they love.

Because Librans are attractive, they're also understandably popular. This may go too far when fascination turns into obsession, or when they fuss over being at their fashionable best.

One thing to remember is that Librans avoid conflict like the plague. When you desire peace or reconciliation, you might wind up exasperated with your Libran friend, who walks away from negative conversations and refuses to address your grievances. In this situation, calm reasoning and dialogue is the only language they respond to.

Libra Enemy

I can't help but be amused at the thought of Libran enemies. Ever spotted a sheep in the fields, only to discover that it was a wolf? That's exactly how I would describe Libran enemies—as wolves in sheep's clothing.


They are adept at being tactful and diplomatic, and they often leave you wondering whether they're irked or not. They're born with a sense of grace, calm and balance, and even when they're seething from within, it can be tricky to ascertain the degree of their anger, resentment or fury.

Don't get swayed by their calm and collected temperament. If a Libran loses their cool, they can rip you apart in ways that may leave you hurting for a long time. They can erupt suddenly and verbally massacre you, knowing exactly where it hurts. Try not to venture into such a zone or scenario. Since Librans avoid confron- tations, you can imagine how much rage it would take to push them to the edge.

Libra Celebrities

My Light and Shadow

Three Grades of Libra

There are three grades of Libra. Which of these do you fall under? You can figure it out by the date of your Libran birth.

If you're born between the 24th of September and the 3rd of October you are a true die hard Libran and have the qualities of Venus fully dominating your life. You are artistic, caring and full of love and social warmth. Venus provides you with loads of friends, perhaps too many at times.


Librans born between the 4th and 13th of October are a little wacky by nature but harmless. If that's you, life is a bundle of fun and you can expect the unexpected from time to time. You like the surprises that life throws at you. The final portion of Libra occurs between the 14th and 23rd of October. Were you born during this time frame? If so, you are the type of Libran who is constantly on the hunt for knowledge and information. You are an eternal student who will never tire of learning news things. As well, you will never grow old as Mercury's co-rulership of your life ensures a sprightly and youthful attitude.

Libra is a movable air sign, which means there's creativity in you. You are quick to grasp ideas, and you have a need to produce works of art and unusual or original things. You bring a touch of art to anything you do. Remember to incorporate this part of you into all of your life's activities; you'll be richly rewarded.

Libra: The light side

You always look absolutely fabulous. There's no doubt about it. Venus has blessed you with the ability to present the best side of your character to the world, even when the chips are down. Everywhere you go heads turn, and you don't even have to work hard at it. That charm has just always been there.

If you take that and add a smattering of confidence, you can see why Libra is regarded as a lucky sign. People want to help you because you are so cheerful and balanced. Over time you attract plenty of friends, well-wishers and even financial patrons who are more than willing to give you a hand.

You have a great ability to help others and bring balance to an otherwise fiery situation. People look to you for calm and sensible opinions and quick and clever insights.

Your wit and your terrific communication skills will bring luck your way. People you meet will remember you because of your knack of combining artistic flair and humour with whatever you have to say. This will be a valuable asset throughout your life.

Libra: The dark side

Although you are very good at charming people, you often worry in private, especially about your relationships and whether or not you're good enough. You seem to need other people's approval for every little thing you do. This is unnecessary because you can rely on your own judgement. It would be a good idea to try not waiting for the thumbs up from others all the time.

Making decisions is another area that can be a life-long problem for you. You have no problem weighing up the pros and cons of a situation, but sometimes you just go round and round in circles and get nowhere.

Learning to trust your judgement will be one of your major life lessons. Once you begin practising this one skill you'll see amazing positive results. Your confidence will grow tremendously.

You are a very good listener, but you are also very impressionable, and tend to take things personally, so the most casual statement can ruin your day. The lesson here is not to take every word you hear so seriously. Try looking on the brighter side of life—you can be upbeat and positive.
