Everyone looks for Venus, the goddess of love, which is in charge of love, but the Libra sign already has her, doesn't it?
The Libra-born people, just like their symbol, scales, have many ups and downs in their private life. Their personalities are light and intellectual since they belong to a sign of air. They are infinitely charming, and their smiles are simply irresistible.
All their lives the are looking for an ideal partner (Libra rules the House of Matrimony), but when they finally find the right one, they are hardly ever happy. Why? Perhaps, Libra people are in love with love itself? Perhaps, they are the same enigmatic as the surface of Venus, which astrologers find very hard to observe due to the hazy atmosphere?
Astrological symbol of this sign is scales. Most of these people always try to balance the scales in social and personal aspects. Libra very much need balance and harmony and when these are hard to find, they would sooner draw back than make any efforts to change the situation.
Venus grants her children with a keen analytical mind, especially when it is about arts. Libra people are rather reasonable and wise, that is why others often turn to them for advice. They are sincere friends and diligent business partners
The gift of intuition and aesthetic sense of beauty make Libra people outstanding artists, poets, writers, and composers. One can almost imagine hat these precious qualities also make them the happiest of all astrological signs. In fact, this is sometimes true. But it also greatly depends whether they find a true soul mate in life. For them it is almost a duty. It is absolutely impossible to think about Libra as single. Their future prospects are connected with partly giving themselves up in all spheres of life. Thus we can see that Libra people are the "looking for love" type but not in the literal sense of the phrase, like, for instance, Sagittarius or Scorpio. Libra would probably always dream of that fantastic night when they hear the laughter of a stranger that would later become their soul mate and make their life complete.
However, these qualities do not make a Libra the weaker side even when you already have him or her. Their independence is well-founded although they express it in a quiet manner. They clearly see the type of the person they are looking for. Libra highly appreciate good qualities of other people. Their wish to make others happy oversteps the limits to such an extent that they would sooner please other people than themselves. Still, they are in no way weak-willed people and will rebel in case they find their delicate natures offended.
Libra people often find themselves in discord with the reality around them since they completely identify themselves with elegance and refinement. They would do anything to avoid contact with people that offend the laws of ethics and good taste.
Although Libra are intellectually equipped with a clear mind, they can be slightly impractical. They tend to be extravagant, to challenge everything and everybody and live the way they want, however, they often regret it afterwards. They are often among the unemployed, which is why they should make a wise decision and learn to do a very specific kind of work, preferably, something connected with arts, so that they could always be employed somewhere. This is the only way for them to fulfil their financial and aesthetic demands.
The astrologers consider the planet of Venus to be less successful in comparison with, say, the more successful Jupiter. Therefore, they should develop the practical spirit to reap the fruit granted by their heavenly ruler. When balanced, Libra people are irresistible. Even in today's severe world of commerce Libra have certain advantages. Their sign rules love, beauty and idealism.
