Have you ever wondered what is it that makes Libra tick? Those people who are born under the Libra zodiac sign are often known for having logical minds and fair judgement but there’s also a lot more to the Libra sign that many people have no idea about. Libras are the most balancing of all signs, and ruled by the planet Venus, the God of beauty and love, they appreciate the beauty in everything. If you have a Libra as a friend, or you’re romantically involved with one, you will know that your life is better if you have a Libra friend in it.
Reason #1: Libra is very romantic.
Libras love deeply, with all their hearts. If you are lucky enough to be loved by a Libra, just know your heart will always be safely swaddled in a Snuggie. Libras always want their partners to know how much they are cared for, from doing little things to grand gestures. Being loved by a Libra is the greatest love you can find. They are fiercely loyal to you, and put your needs above our own. Libras attract partners very, very easily, but they are very “picky.” A Libra has certain standards and there isn’t anything wrong with that. Libras don’t choose just anyone to expose their hearts to.
Libra can be extremely charming and a bit of a flirt.
Besides being romantic, Libras are masters of charm. Whether it’s smoothing over ruffled feathers or making someone feel welcomed, Libras excel in the social grace department. They are also very aware of others’ feelings and emotions, and part of their charm is in their sensitivity to others. When Libra is really digging someone’s vibe they can instinctively turn on the charm and their friendly and flirty nature can make them incredibly attractive to others. They can be extremely seductive without even realizing that they are doing it… it just comes naturally to them!
Reason #2: Libra is open-minded and endlessly curious.
The traits and characteristics of curiosity and open-mindedness are extremely common within the Libra personality and they are always on the hunt to discover new ideas. They believe strongly in not judging a book by it’s a cover and prefer to keep an open mind when going into new situations and meeting new people. Libras have great observational skills and very good perception. They strive to bond with others and look for long-lasting friendships. Libras dislike superficial people, and will not surround themselves with fake behaviors. Libras believe you should learn to read the inside of a person, and not base your friendships on what someone looks like. They love to believe in vibes.
They are very diplomatic.
Getting along with people is one of Libra’s talents, and they have the ability to listen to differing viewpoints with a great deal of patience. Libras make their point without ever resorting to violence or aggression, and they do their best to keep everyone happy.
Reason #3: They will bring balance, peace and justice to your life.
It’s no wonder that Libra sign is represented by the scales. They live for balance and their sole purpose in life is to maintain it. They try to find balance between their personal and professional lives, between self-indulgence and restraint, between spirit and material, and between any other contradicting aspects in their lives.
Nothing moves or motivates a Libra more than attempts for peace, whether it’s between two people or two nations. They basically hate anything that disrupts harmony and peace, whether it concerns them or anyone else in the world. That’s why they hate getting into fights and usually end up telling the other person whatever they want to hear just to avoid conflict.
Nothing upsets a Libra more than witnessing injustice. It disorients them so much that they could obsess about a wrongdoing for days and days. The Libra is a strong advocate of truth and justice and they will go out of their way to make sure that everybody gets fair treatment. They’re not afraid to stand up for those that who are treated poorly and they’re also quick to admit to their own mistakes rather than trying to ‘pass the blame’ onto someone else.
Reason #4: Sometimes Libras put too much pressure on themselves trying to make others happy.
As charming as Libras can be, they find it difficult to say “no” to anyone. Therefore, they end up getting very stressed. They tend to put others’ needs in front of their own happiness. They want to please everyone, but soon realize not everyone is going to like them. Sometimes Libras desire to make sure that those around them are happy can lead to them putting too much pressure on themselves to try to find a way to please everyone. They have to remember that they can’t please absolutely everybody absolutely all of the time and that it’s okay sometimes to look out for themselves.
Libra feels happiest when everyone they love is happy.
Libra is all about their friends and family and they feel at their very best when those around them are also feeling their best. They will go to great lengths to ensure that everyone that they love is happy in fulfilled and it’s for this reason that they make for a damn good person to have in your life! You can’t measure their depth of kindness and willingness to help knows no bound. They are basically just genuine to the core.
They will do anything to see you smile. There can be no dull moment around a Libra. With their impeccable sense of humor, they'll make sure your life is all giggles and laughter.
Libras have an excellent sense of humor, which tends to be rather wry or dark. They have a sense of “timing” even as a small tot and their considerable intelligence will require you to be on the ball at all times. They will “get” and make jokes that would go over many other people's heads. They will make you laugh with their sick sense of humor and dirty jokes. When Libras feel hurt, this humor can become sarcastic and cruel, but the rest of the time they are inclined to be diplomatic, preferring to avoid unnecessary conflict.
Reason #5: Libras have an impeccable style.
Libras like the finer things in life, but it doesn’t mean they are superficial. Libras just have really good taste, and they take pride in creating beauty with what they have. Good food, good company, good music and genuine beauty is what life is all about when it comes to a Libra. They appreciate the tiniest gestures of kindness and they are able to find beauty in almost anything or any mundane event in their day. Their style always reflects elegance, and for that reason, they don’t have to work hard at getting noticed..
They can give you the best fashion advice.
They know it all: colors that are trending during the fall, the newest designers that emerged during the previous fashion week and the looks that have been brought back for the upcoming season. You can count on their elegant, up-to-date fashion sense any time you wish to borrow their clothing (which they will only be happy to lend you).
Reason #6: Libras are excellent listeners and they give some killer advice too.
Libra is the kind of friend that will drop everything to give a friend their ear when they need it. And not only will they really listen to you but they also give some pretty great advice too thanks to their logical nature and ability to see a situation from every side.
They are natural problem solvers.
Give them a problem and they’ll solve it! They like taking on challenges, breaking problems down and coming up with a solution quickly. Not just any solution, though. They want one that will satisfy all parties involved in the problem, and they don’t even account for the impossibility of this.
Reason #7: Libra is a social creature who craves stimulating conversations.
The Libra tends to be quite social by nature and they love to connect with others through interesting and thought-provoking conversations. They are considered to be the “communicators” of the zodiac and there are few things that they enjoy more than finding someone that they can just get lost in conversation with. Whenever you go see a movie with them or enjoy a nice afternoon over a cup of coffee at a local café, there is going to be an acquaintance they will run into.
They love to have fun.
Being surrounded by people and talking and laughing is what makes a Libra happy. They always have a ton of things to say and fun stories to share, and they will certainly keep you entertained. Libras hate negativity, and they like their surroundings to be filled with good energy. Positivity is key.
Reason #8: Those who have a Libra friend already would know that they're the most loyal friends they can ever have. Whether it is fighting for you, or carrying you home when you pass out, they'll always have your back.
Libra friends are very supportive of a person’s dreams, projects or any random ideas. If they see you have the passion for it (and Libras are very passionate people), they will push you and even help you achieve your goal. They are enthusiastic and will plan each step with you. Their lively spirit and enthusiasm can be very infectious and you will need that from a friend when trying to achieve something. They will not stop your plans as they are not jealous people and won’t stop you just so you don’t leave them behind. When you’re feeling down, the Libras will go out of their ways to cheer you up. They’ll bring you to parties, introduce you to people and even do a little retail therapy with you.
Reason #9: They can introduce you to the most rad bands out there.
Many Libras have musical talents, and they have a good taste in music. When it comes to music they don’t discriminate. From Alternative Rock to Big Band Swing and everything in between, they can appreciate whatever genre you throw at them. Which is perfect because nothing brings people together like some good tunes. Whether you’re going on a road trip or heading to a friend’s house for a birthday bash, their DJ skills will NEVER disappoint. And because they love music so much, they’ll be up for whatever big music festival you want to go to. By the end of the year you’ll both be able to check Coachella, SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Burning Man off you’re music festival bucket list.
Reason #10: Most Libras have easy going nature. They will forgive… but they won’t forget.
Libras are very easygoing and adaptable which makes them very likeable. As long as they are around the people they love, they are happy, and they will cope with whatever life throws at them. Libras are ready and able to embrace change.
The Libra doesn’t have time to waste on holding unnecessary grudges and when someone screws up they are usually forgiving enough to give them a second chance. However they’re also smart enough to learn from their mistakes and they tend to remember everything so that they don’t make the same error of judgement twice.
Reason #11: Libra would prefer to lose an argument than lose a friendship.
Some zodiac signs can be so stubborn and bull-headed in their nature that they are willing to lose a perfectly good friendship over totally petty and stupid argument… but not the Libra. If something is just not worth fighting about and seems like it could ruin a friendship then the Libra is willing to concede and let them have their victory.
Reason #12: You can't get a better friend than a Libra. They have no limits.
One of the most valuable things on earth to have is a best friend. They are the people who stick with you through thick and thin, good times and bad times and all the times in between. Everyone needs a best friend in their life, and there is no better friend to have than a Libra. They are intelligent, funny, and loyal. Your life will be better for having someone like them in it. Friends who stick by them become family and there is nothing they wouldn't do for family. They also know that you won't always want to talk about what's got you down, sometimes you just need a little fun. Libras are big believers in actions speak louder than words. If you're sad, they’ll plan a whole day full of fun activities to take your mind off of that bad breakup. Libras show you what real friendships are like. They may hang out with a hundred people, but they are close to only a handful of them. Being the closest to a Libra is a privilege not everybody gets.
