Libra is the lover of the Zodiac. She seeks complementary energy – partnership, equilibrium, balance, harmony, and above all, love. Libra takes pleasure in people, words, art and beauty. There are so many joys, wonders and ways of expression. She wants to experience them all! Maybe that is why she is constantly falling in love.
The opposite of Aries, who is on a quest to make her personal mark in the world, Libra is searching for connections with others. She attracts people and collects things because of her great fascination with everything she sees. She may seem acquisitive, or luxury loving, but she is merely fulfilling a deep need to appreciate the earth by gathering it close to herself.
Libra creates balance in her life by making comparisons. She spends a great deal of time weighing out options, opinions and possibilities. Like a judge, she must choose the best, and this is sometimes a challenge. The tendency to vacillate on the part of Libra is her famous, and seemingly endless exercise in discernment, but once she has chosen, she does so with a certainty she will strongly defend. To rush the Libra could result in a half-hearted, and possibly ill-fated decision on her part, thus opening the door to constant uncertainty.
Libra needs to be stimulated both mentally and sensually. She is just as fascinated with communication and debate as with earthly goods and pleasures. Libra wants others to feel comfortable and at ease. She is a charming hostess with impeccable taste and style, and seeks both natural and creative beauty in her surroundings.
When it comes to love, the Libra will be entirely devoted to her chosen one, showering him with all the joys of life she so cherishes. Libra needs companionship above all, and will work hard to make a harmonious partnership.
