You are born under the sign of Libra, which represents the element of air, or the intellect. You’re most definitely a thinker—you like to use your mind to tackle problems. Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, which refers to relationships of all sorts and your connection to the world around you.
People know you as someone who loves to socialise. Your outgoing nature and love of communicating brilliant ideas to people around you are one of your strengths. You’re rarely at a loss for words, and even on your worst day, you have ‘the gift of the gab’!
You not only have the ability to share your ideas in a very natural way, you also have charm in the way you convey your feelings. This is another of your very positive traits. Even people who don’t agree with what you have to say can’t resist you and will usually behave well around you because you’re simply a nice person.
Your love of communication makes you an excellent mediator and negotiator. Coupled with the fact that you’re always reasonable in the way you deal with people means your friends and co-workers can depend on your having a balanced viewpoint, even in the fiercest of arguments.
In fact, if there’s a problem with you, it arises because you’re good at seeing all the sides of a problem and staying impartial. This makes it hard for you to commit to one side of an argument; in other words, you don’t want to be seen as biased, and you want everyone to like you!
What ends up happening is you get approval by agreeing with everyone. This is not a good idea, because you agree to things for the wrong reasons, to keep everyone onside, rather than because you’re firmly committed to something. Try not to do this because it can mess up your dealings with people. You don’t need to bend over so far to be accepted.
Making decisions is an area in which you excel; but again, don’t jump to conclusions simply to please others. You have the ability to look at all sides of an issue, so use it.
Sometimes you get stressed if you feel you’re being obstructed somehow. The answer is to get all the relevant facts; running off and asking others to support you will just confuse things. And besides, if you look inside yourself you’ll realise that you can rely on your own experiences. You don’t need to use others as a crutch for your decisions.
When you get to know people, you are perfectly comfortable sharing your feelings with them, and you’ll go to some trouble to make them feel at ease. You create harmony in your environment to match the harmony in your character.
This relates to the fact that your ruling planet is Venus. This is a soft and gracious planet, and feminine by nature. Your softer side is expressed in almost everything you do—the way you entertain guests, the type of home furnishings you like to buy, the clothes you wear and even your personal grooming.
All these things express the natural flair and grace that is part of the Venus temperament. There’s no way others won’t notice your style. People see you as elegant and tasteful—and that’s people who have known you for a while as well as people who have just met you.
You often make a great first impression because you are such a good communicator and connect so easily with people; this makes you an ace networker. Some people believe you must have an ulterior motive because you are dealing with so many people at once, but it’s really just that you absolutely love socialising and partying. You are a real ‘people person’.
Because Venus is the planet of love, you seek love in everything you do, and particularly in relationships. Finding your soulmate is a big dream, perhaps even your most significant life mission. You will go to great lengths to meet many, many people. Who knows where you’ll find the right one? You have much to give to the person you feel is your perfect match.
Very few Librans find the peace and satisfaction they’re looking for until they’ve connected with that special person. Once this happens, they can really get into their work, family and other domestic affairs with energy.
