6 Reasons Why Libra Men And Women Are The Balance You Need In Life

I'm here to lay out a few characteristics of why Libras are, ultimately, the greatest people you will meet, with added "cautions" to let you know what makes a Libra uneasy.

Just think about it: The Libra is the only sign not represented by a human or animal. It is represented by the scales, to show the Libra's need for balance, order and equality.

We live for balance and harmony in all things, from personal love lives to business and careers. Here are the reasons why all other signs are jealous of Libras:

1. Balance

People flock to Libras when they have problems because we see both sides of a situation. We try to understand both viewpoints before going forward.

Libras can't promise to fix the problem, but we always offer a compassionate ear, and give you the attention and emotional support you need to help you wash away some of your worries and doubts.

Nothing disrupts a Libra more than having negativity around him or her. Their surroundings must be balanced with good energy, so if there is a conflict, Libras go over and above to make amends.

A Libra needs to have balance in all parts of life, and gets frustrated if that doesn't happen.

As the sign of the scales, Libras are constantly weighing and measuring information. This can earn them the name "mediator," and they can be a source of strong opinions.

Caution: Libras are often called devil's advocates because they don't choose sides. But, in the end, they just want to have peace in a world that isn't very peaceful.

2. Charming

Libras are very easy to like because of their charming ways. They are capable of making anyone feel interesting and important. They are great listeners.

Libras are very aware of others' feelings and emotions. They are hyper aware of their actions and the outcomes they can have.

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.

Caution: 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.

3. Sensitive

Libras are very sensitive to those around them, which makes them great friends.

Even if a Libra does fight with someone, their charisma and kindness always helps smooth things over.

Caution: It takes a long time to get a Libra angry, but once you take it to that point, it's hard for a Libra to look at you the same.

4. 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.

We are fiercely loyal to you, and put your needs above our own.

Libras don't tend to believe in "love at first sight." They move cautiously in their romantic relationships and don't get intimate quickly. They look for lasting connections.

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.

Caution: Libras forget not everyone has the same view on love. Their hearts often get broken easily, because they are let down when others disappoint them.

5. Social Butterflies

No one handles awkward situations better than Libras. They believe, "It's only awkward if you make it awkward."

Libras are diplomats, and are known to handle the weirdest situations with ease, elegance and style.

Libras love to be surrounded by people. Just laughing, talking or debating for a few hours will make a Libra happy. We are creative souls who want to make a difference.

Libras are natural-born leaders. They climb the ladder of success because they strive for so much more. They aren't okay with mediocrity.

Caution: As much as they love people, Libras also love to be alone. They need time to recharge.

6. Beauty: Inner And Outer

Libras have a magnetic appearance, which you will notice in them at first glance. Libras are naturally beautiful, and for this reason, they do not have to work hard to get noticed or recognized.

Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, which is the God of beauty and love. Libras appreciate beauty in everything, whether it is a friend, loved one, art, writing or music. Because Libras love and appreciate beauty, their homes are often filled with amazing decor.

They enjoy owning the best money can buy, and take pride in their good taste. They don't apologize for liking the nice things in life.

Caution: Many people think Libras are self-centered, and will do anything for beautiful things. This is not the case. Libras create beauty with what they have.
