They will try to keep both sides satisfied instead of siding with one party because they have good people skills; they understand it is never one side’s fault and they will try their best to let both people win and take something home!

The Libra personality can make a good mediator or arbitrator or even a diplomat. They know how to calm down intense situations, make everyone see the whole story and listen to both sides to get all the important details. So next time you are caught up in a messy situation with two parties head on head, bring in a Libra. They will know how to handle the situation to the best of their abilities.


Yes Libras are just; they want justice and fairness to dominate our world so that no one is wronged and everyone gets a chance at life. Individuals who have this zodiac sign like to ensure that people are not cheated in any manner, wronged or unlawfully treated. They believe in rights for everyone and will try their best to ensure that every process or system is carried out in a just manner.

These individuals are against cheating your way out of exams, paying someone money or winning with an illegal advantage. Why? They know if someone is benefitting in an illegal manner it definitely means someone is getting their rights snatched away from their hands. These people also believe in everyone getting a turn. You shouldn’t be surprised if they are at a party and are the first one to know someone is trying to say something so they will make sure everyone quietens up and allows that person to be heard.


Thanks to their ruling planet Venus and yes also because of their own sign, the Libra star has an eye for beauty and vanity. They appreciate beauty in anything they see or experience hence they are known for trying to make their surroundings reflect their taste in things and people. Be it the garden, their home, car or even their wardrobe; Libras want to look nice and be in a nice environment. 

However, sometimes this trait ends up in a Libra being judgemental about how others look and dress maybe or what type of things they have. Their eyes are keen to spot beauty of their standards only and they will be quick to notice what doesn’t match their tastes even if it is beloved in someone else’s eyes. They just understand their own taste and not of others. Keep that in mind!


Libras are idealists; they want everyone to be perfect especially when they are starting something by themselves. They want to be the standard in doing something that others appreciate or recognize. They will strive to incorporate the important elements into what they do and make sure that everything is just perfect even if it takes a long time. 

This often results in Libras getting left behind but when they are done with their project of theirs, no matter how big or small, it indeed reflects their great sense of doing things beautifully. So next time you are planning to do something, have a Libra stop by and take a look at what you are doing; you won’t be surprised that they have some really good suggestions and maybe some criticisms too.


They are smart, witty and yes clever. They know how to deal with people and get their way! They are good conversationalists and know how to tackle people and take much pride in doing so. Maybe they recognize the other person for who they are or what they want and hence are able to play around that in a great manner. So don’t try to be oversmart with Libras. Observe them well like they observe you and be yourself and straightforward. You might as well confuse them!


Libras want things to be not only perfect but balanced in a way that everyone appreciates it. Their desire to please everyone and impress them leads them to become confused; oftentimes pleasing one party will displease the other!

Also, they have the habit of weighing the benefits and harms of a decision because they are perfectionists and this can further add to their indecisiveness! Sometimes they will need help in making a decision so don’t hesitate and lend a helping brain to them!

Self Pitying.

Libras are very self centered and take things personally; if something bad happens to them they almost immediately go into this shell where they rethink about things and experience the bad feelings they are going through again and again. They are thrown into a circle of self pity and feel that everyone is against them and no one understands their pains or their situation hence they are the victim.

In such cases, the best thing to do is talk to the Libra. Give them an outlet where they can express themselves and once you think they are feeling better help them understand things from a different perspective.


Ah yes Libras can get caught up in their work, thoughts and beautifying themselves or their garden outside so don’t be surprised if they are late for dinner with you! They can be unreliable and may not always meet your expectations.

Great Listeners.

You will be surprised at how eagerly a Libra listens to what you have to say and affirm what you have said. It’s not by coincidence; they are great listeners. They will focus all their attention on what you have to say not only because they believe everyone should be heard but also because they want to take your input in a certain situation ans believe everyone has something valuable to add.
