In Search of Harmony and Balance

Symbolized by the Scales, Libras value harmony and balance in all forms. As the master of compromise and diplomacy, Libra is adept at seeing all points of view, and excels at crafting compromises and effecting mediation between others. Libra's daily mantra could easily be: "Let's all just get along." Libras are only happy when people in their orbit are happy, and always try to get others to see things from a different perspective.

Always Putting Others Before Themselves

Intelligent and kind, Libras are always willing to put others before themselves. In search of harmony in their lives, their minds always go to the question of how to create that harmony amongst their circle of friends and family. Libras love surrounding themselves with other people, and they're always happiest with a large group of friends, family, and coworkers. Occasionally, though, they can be so focused on the happiness and harmony of this group of people that they can neglect their own happiness.

Creative and Imaginative

Libras possess immense creativity, and are always ready to use their imagination in the service of their family and friends. A Libra’s imagination is unmatched, and they are known for always coming up with new ways of looking at an issue. Even if they're working on something analytical rather than creatively-oriented, a Libra will find novel and creative ways to see things. Their imagination is one of their biggest assets, and they often put their imagination to work by pursuing artistic endeavors of some sort.

A Big picture thinker

Libras believe that they're directing their own lives, and they take a big-picture approach in making that life look and feel the best it can be. They spend a lot of time figuring out what's missing from that big picture, and they may feel unhappy if they become unbalanced by focusing too much on one thing, whether that’s work, a partner, or a family member. Libras are at their best when they balance their schedule to include plenty of time for self-care rituals and personal pursuits, and when they give themselves enough flexibility to change focus. While they are great at making big plans, sometimes they struggle with follow-through and execution.

The Ultimate Pragmatist

While Libras put others before themselves, are very creative, and can frequently worry about "big picture" issues at the expense of the details, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t practical. On the contrary, Libras have a reputation for being the ultimate pragmatists. This pragmatism can even apply to relationships, where Librans have been known to call off a relationship preemptively if they feel it may not work due to distance, age difference, or another external conflict. They are pragmatic about love, and appreciate that different relationships can have different seasons, so there's room for more than one grand love in their life.
