At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Libra rising are typically sophisticated, charismatic, courteous, polite, graceful, diplomatic, pleasing, friendly, creative, affable, prone to indecision, and conflict avoidant. Being alone is difficult for you and you look to others to approve of you. This need may cause you to deny your values in order to win people over. You are also likely to be selfish and egotistical. Refusing others is not easy for you. You will try to evade any sort of conflict and require that things are always in balance harmoniously. Decisions can be challenging for you to make as you prefer to weigh each part of the equation equally, comparing and contrasting, before coming to a conclusion. Debates are enjoyable to you though you keep them conflict-free and pleasant. Outer appearances matter to you. You are lucky in that whatever you require seems to finds its way to you without you needing to put in much work. Making decisions, particularly in your romantic partnerships, is a lesson you will need to learn in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus and its placement in your chart will therefore be significant.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You radiate positive energy and have a confident, joyous demeanour. Your warmth and kindness is enjoyed by all around you. You are an innovative leader, devising magnificent ideas and coordinating them. You strive to achieve great heights in your life. You have high standards and assume that they will be met, and they usually are due to the considerate aid of others or through your own dedication. This placement bestows the recipient with luck, monetary prizes, eagerness, and self-assurance. The one thing you must be mindful of with this aspect is a tendency towards indulging yourself too much or engaging in wasteful behaviour. You may also need to curb your pride as you can get carried away with your own good qualities. Saving money may be difficult for as you are carefree in this regard, spending abundantly whenever the mood strikes. Deep down you crave to better understand yourself and to find your lifes purpose. Traveling is particularly enjoyable to you and your work may involve travel of some form. At times it may feel as though you are being watched over by a supernatural force as you seem to barely escape without injury at times, but always somehow do; you are protected. Good karma from a previous life, due to your kind heart and giving nature, has earned you these blessings and many would agree that you are indeed blessed. Utilise these gifts carefully and in a positive way.
You believe in yourself and in your skills to achieve the things you set out for, feeling that you are capable of withstanding any challenge you should encounter in your life. You are ready and able to overcome whatever you need to in order to survive, even if this means changing your own tendencies to do so. A strong will coupled with great discipline promise that you will rise to great heights. You have an excellent ability to persevere against all odds and can be quite resourceful as well. These skills are put to good use when you make the necessary alterations to the outdated systems in your path. You will fight for justice, whether for yourself or when you see others being treated unfairly. You are a leader with a superb capacity for managerial duties. Others turn to you when they need guidance and you put them on the correct path. Very dedicated, you go after your objectives with complete focus, intensely moving forward in an almost obsessive fashion. Those who skirt away from their troubles tend to rub you the wrong way as you are inclined to see them as weak and find it difficult to give much weight to their views, concerns, or to them as a person. You firmly believe that your fate is what you make it and hold others to the same standard. Very perceptive, your intuition quickly picks up on the truth of a situation. You are aware of the destruction that pessimism can cause and therefore passionately and diligently work to unravel these thoughts, applying the same conviction and purpose that you would with everything you do. Those around you intuit your strength and capabilities, treating you as though you have already reached the top.
You combine cleverness and craftiness in order to get the most you can out of others so as to benefit yourself. You are mentally attentive, sharp, and enjoy a good verbal sparring match. At times you can speak too quickly or bluntly, and would do well to slow down a bit. You also tend to take out revenge on others by verbally cutting them down. When you become angry these attacks can become particularly explosive, involving insults and intense rants. Your assertive communication insists that others come around to share your viewpoints, though you are unlikely to be open theirs. It is important for you to develop self-control and a way to express your desires in a reasonable fashion, rather than letting them run away with you. If you are able to redirect the tension you feel inside into creative endeavours, you will save yourself lots of trouble with other people as you are prone to starting fights when tension builds up within you. You often criticise those closest to you when you are in a bad mood and this habit may burn many bridges. Most conversations quickly turn into arguments with you and it would be a good idea to go into a career where this personality trait is an asset rather than a hindrance, for instance as a human/animal rights activist, upholding the law, or possibly where a no-holds-barred critique is required. Reading appeals to you and it is likely that you are skilled in written communication or creative writing.
It is difficult for you to contain your high energy long enough for you to calmly stay in one place and you will instead fidget around until you are actively engaged in something. This lends to you preferring to work on a variety of different endeavours at once as you lose interest quickly otherwise, though you rarely see any of these projects through to completion. However, it is important that you allow yourself a chance to relax and unwind or you will wear yourself out mentally. When pressure within you reaches a pique you will explode outwardly, often without reason. Logic is difficult for you to find when you are angry, your thoughts tend to be muddled during this time, and you are not able to rationally convey why you are feeling such rage. Your nervousness can make you susceptible to physical ailments that are usually associated with stress; make a conscious effort to relax every day and try not to take on more work than you can realistically handle. Your volatile temper can also create trouble with your heart. Often you go about each day in a busy manner, speeding about though getting very little done. Learn to pace yourself.
Less detail-oriented and more of a generalist, you prefer seeing things in their entirety. You prefer focusing on how everything will fit together in the end rather than getting stuck on the miniscule details that would never get you anywhere. Your tendency towards positive thinking can at times cause you to commit to more than you are able to supply in the end. You may over-estimate your own talents and capabilities and will express these inflated visions to others. Sometimes you seem to be unable to keep your mouth shut, even repeating yourself again and again during one conversation because you feel as though there is a possibility that you were misunderstood or that others did not hear you. In addition, you will compulsively do something and then go back to make sure you had actually done it, for instance turning off the stove or closing the back gate. You may lack practicality due to your inclination to dream big. Travelling is likely to appeal to you as it aids you in discovering new information. Philosophy and any subject that allows some sort of intangible speculation is going to be of interest. You do not need to be prompted to share your thoughts with others as you will do so readily of your own accord. You like to pull apart someones argument even though you may actually feel the exact same way as they do on the matter at hand; for you, debating is seen as a good time had.
Mentally you engage in pattern-oriented thinking where you put together things that others may feel are unrelated and have a preference towards viewing the entire puzzle instead of spending too much time on each individual piece. You crave learning new bits of information and it does not matter to you whether this is done through traditional methods or self-study. When you have discovered a new bit of data you excitedly express what you have learned to others and would make an excellent educator. If you do decide to go the route of educator, you will likely acquire knowledge from your pupils just as often as they do from your lessons, as you have a curious mind and are always searching. You may also have a flair for the written and spoken word as well as publications of all kinds. It can be almost too easy for you to sell items, due to others instinctively trusting you to act honourably in regards to what you are selling them.
It is probable that you will often conjure up some interesting endeavour yet never get the idea out of your head and into practical application. In fact, it would be best if you could team up with another person who wouldnt mind doing all of the grunt work required to implement these brilliant ideas of yours. You have a straight forward way of thinking and communicating and would never purposefully try to dupe anyone. The positive attitude and belief in yourself and your abilities will aid you in your success. However, there are moments when you will not budge mentally and these need to be watched. You dislike doing the same thing day in and day out and look for ways to diversify your activities. Be mindful not to spread yourself too thin and wind up knowing only a small bit about many subjects, yet never mastering one. Although this type of expertise may appeal to you and if that is something you are comfortable with, then by all means continue in this fashion.
You have a good imagination and heightened sensitivity. Art, creativity, acting, and mystical subjects draw you in. You tend to absorb the energy around you and are easily influenced by your circumstances, as well as other people, and therefore you must be mindful as to the situations you put yourself in. Even the mere hint of an idea may affect you. Odd and mystical sorts of acts tend to occur in your life that would be deemed irrational or impossible by others. Your many hopes and dreams are often left in the abstract as you are unable to bring them into the real world. You are tender, empathetic, and always willing to lend a helping hand. Unfortunately, your kind nature can be easily manipulated due to your soft heart. If someone is in need of aid, you are right there, selflessly doing your best, though you must be more careful that you are not being used. There is a strong urge towards creative endeavours as well as musical pursuits. Any sort of roughness or confrontation will turn you away; you will evade unpleasant circumstances. Your sensitivity in these matters may force you into escapism via substance abuse or other addictive means and self-restraint must be developed. Hiding from your problems will not solve them. Procrastinating is also likely to be an issue for you. Sometimes your fantasy world feels more real to you than what is actual and you can convince yourself of an false reality. Highly intuitive, your emotions run deep and you can be romantic as well as a bit physic at times. You are strongly interested in the occult and the mystical realm though may need to take care to use these means in positive ways. Try to keep your feet on the ground and not get too carried away with your inner fantasy world. Most people will have a difficult time truly knowing you, though this is not surprising as you confuse yourself much of the time.
You have many aspirations that spill into an array of different subjects. You are hopeful, idealistic, and imaginative. The notions that come into your mind are often on a grand scale. At times you may find yourself unable to follow through on the promises you have made, due to being overly positive about your capabilities or the circumstances at hand. You are talented in sales and advertising. Aiding others is something you strive for, though people may abuse your good-will as your emotions can run high and you may too easily empathise with someone who is down on their luck. You feel that humanity is connected as a whole and what affects one person, affects the entirety. Benefits come to you from unknown places though they may also be lost by deception, rumours, or indulgence. Staying positive regardless of the circumstances is natural to you, though be sure to keep grounded. You have a strong belief that upcoming situations will be for the best, but you must be mindful to stay practical and not falsely believe the circumstances are more glorious than they really are. You are giving, compassionate, and caring, and are likely to feel a pull towards the spiritual realm.
You are vividly imaginative and can adapt your visions into the real world when you focus your efforts. Dreaming up fantastical scenarios feels like home to you and you enjoy mysterious subjects, as they only fuel your imagination. However, you are prone to escapism as the harsh realities of life can get to you, causing you to seclude yourself into your dream-world. Do not become so lost that you forget to handle your obligations. Hiding from your problems is not going to diminish them, rather it will do the opposite. Your caring, empathetic nature might attract shady characters that will tell you a sad tale in order to abuse your kindness; be careful of who you trust. Learn how to better monitor and restrict your feelings and the fantasies you are so easily drawn into.
You cannot help but absorb the hurt that people are feeling and their sadness has a strong effect on you, therefore you readily come to the aid of others when they are in despair. You are not the most assertive type and have trouble standing up for yourself when required. It is important that you become comfortable going after the things that matter to you. There is a possibility that you will have premonitions while you are sleeping as you have a link to the spiritual world due to your intuitive sensitivity, if you can only learn to believe the things you intuit. However, keep away from mystical situations that end up causing you more harm than good, for instance calling forth dark spirits, fortune-telling, or hypnosis. You can be very spiritual though at times unrealistic. You have difficulty saying no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best for you to stay away from these circumstances altogether. You are tuned in to the vibrations around you and negative emotions will drag you down drastically; strive to involve yourself in more cheerful surroundings whenever possible. Music with an ethereal, spiritual tone to it will likely make you feel a sense of belonging, as if it is taken from your very soul. You can be rather introverted at times though also over-indulgent. Artistic avenues draw you in and you may have significant talent in these fields. When you find someone that you truly enjoy and care for, you are prone to putting them up on a pedestal and can feel quite down and defeated when they eventually do not live up to your unrealistic expectations.
Mentally you are capable of delving into the most hidden of depths. Whether or not they are pleasant, you will uncover whatever secrets are buried beneath. You would make an excellent investigator as you are naturally gifted in the field. Psychological evaluation is another area that you are talented in and there is a strong interest in topics related to the afterlife and mystical studies. You are the sort that will learn one thing thoroughly rather than dabbling briefly all over the map. Despite your expectation that others be transparent with you, you are unwilling to provide the same disclosure to them. You feel most comfortable in situations where the attention is not focused on you and you can do as you please with little interference from others. You are capable of using your hands to heal others if you can properly channel your energies and may do well to try your efforts in massage therapy or chiropractic care. You find a kind of comfort in disassembling and reassembling things, as you have good technical skills and like to see how everything works together. You are drawn to situations, people, or subjects that project a mysterious quality and you are always up for the challenge of figuring them out. When you do come to a conclusion, you are able to clearly express what you have learned. You use your logical, analytical mind and intuitive ability to assess everything that you come across. Mentally you strive to transform and transcend whatever you find. Other people easily recognise your confident dedication to the things you do. If you are interested in a topic, you are able to focus yourself completely in order to absorb any and all information pertaining to it. Highly observant, nothing gets passed you and you are amazingly accurate in your evaluations of the circumstances you find yourself in and the people you come across.
You are more interested in your needs and well-being than you are with that of other peoples. You readily compete with others and are considered a fighter in spirit. Developing some diplomacy would do you well; learn to work as a team. You can be confrontational and aggressive, starting arguments over the littlest of matters. Easily giving into your urges, you have difficulty with self-restraint. Many times you believe that in order to get what you desire you need to win a battle of sorts. You are always looking out for your own best interest and pushing yourself to the top of the line which can create hostility in others. You insist that you are correct even when you are not, do not foster forgiveness towards others, and have trouble apologising. Energetic and driven, be mindful not to release this in destructive ways by squandering it via meaningless endeavours or being at the whim of your sensual desires. You can be rash, careless, and lacking in patience; try to think things through before rushing full force into things. You dislike being held back in any way and will not abide by others trying to control you in any fashion which causes trouble with authority figures, affecting your advancement in your career. You are highly accident-prone and temperamental, volatile even. Pay attention to how much energy you are exerting as you typically go go go until you drop; find a way to release your energy steadily. Extreme internal tensions and an inability to handle them can cause you to erupt when things do not go as you wanted, especially at those you feel most comfortable with. You can be spontaneous though careless, leading you into trouble, especially financially.
The only thing limiting you from achieving great heights is yourself. Find a way to direct that amazing energy of yours in a beneficial way and success is yours! Though of course the path to glory will insist that you develop discipline, patience, diligence, perseverance, and a strong will. It may be necessary for you to come to terms with your spiritual needs versus what you think you need, as this is causing inner conflict for you. Let go of the lower, earthly ways of thinking and be open to wisdom and spiritual growth. You may find that these tensions cease to exist, allowing you to go forward in a more positive manner. You are brave and confident, now all you need is a bit of self-discipline to pull it all together.
You are highly responsive, both physically and mentally, to the environment that you find yourself in. Naturally you are full of energy and feel a need to be always active. Quickly disinterested, you require a good deal of mental stimulation to keep your mind busy, lending to your preference towards being a part of many endeavours all at once. You are self-sufficient, unique, inventive, and a revolutionary thinker who is always open to new ideas. In fact, finding fresh ways of doing things or progressive philosophies are a valuable part of life for you and you strive to inspire others to engage in these with you. Your gut intuition is unusually strong and accurate. However, you require complete freedom to be able to use this intuition in whatever way feels right to you, reacting to situations without being hindered by other obligations. Careers that entail the same, monotonous work day in and day out are not for you and you would do best with work that uses your superb ability to adapt to changing circumstances and allows you some room for creativity. You would never abide by others demanding that you do something and telling you in what way you must execute your task. It is important to you to discover things for yourself, in your own time. Your thinking does not follow the typical step-by-step process that most others adhere to. Instead, your thinking is more abstract and conclusions tend to just find their way into your mind seemingly from thin air, though this is just your intuition working its magic and providing you with unparalleled insight. Scientific and technological subject appeal to you and you are usually one of the first to try out new gadgets or concepts. Astrological topics and anything related to supernatural phenomena will also hold your attention. You are an articulate communicator, in both the written and spoken word, which readily exchanges fresh and unconventional information with other people.
You possess a talent for leadership in aiding others to improve their situation, whether this be their living situation or their spiritual one. You are highly moral by nature and this draws people to you. Coordinating others comes easily to you as does strategy. It is likely that you will transform any group that you lead. Your past life bestowed you with acceptance towards others beliefs and values, you are humble in your approach. You quickly decipher what is morally correct and what is not, lending to an ability to thoroughly comprehend when a transformation is in order. You find pleasure assisting in the task of attaining important aspirations, yours or someone elses. Insightful and giving, you have a gift for seeing to the truth of the matter and read people and circumstances accurately and swiftly. You are also particularly empathetic towards others and the troubles they encounter.
Very affectionate, you enjoy engaging in romance and are a sensitive, appreciative pursuer. Others are drawn to you even if you are not stereotypically good-looking, though you often are. Your personality is vibrant and you are easy to be with, gaining you much popularity. You keep your emotions fairly steady and low-key, which can be very attractive to the opposite sex. There is a part of you that likes to play match-maker and you could easily put others together in a fantastic way, creating harmonious pairings that last.
You are driven by an amorous nature with a fondness for all things beautiful, yearning to channel your passion into creativity of any form. This placement denotes a charismatic magnetism that others respond to. Being alone for too long does not do you well and you prefer to be socially active, happily engaging with other people. You have a strong craving to express yourself affectionately and for this warmth to be reciprocated. Your vitality is apparent to others and people find you alluring. Romantic relationships are likely to flourish as you are aware of what you desire in a mate and are able to convey these feelings clearly. You do not hide your intentions, but rather take a direct, honest approach in these matters. However, you will avoid conflict if you can do so as you dislike disharmony. You invest much effort to understanding your feelings.
You are enthusiastic, spur-of-the-moment, and reactive in both your emotions and your sexuality. You can lose control when your emotions are stimulated, especially in regards to love where you seek out exhilarating situations and can become enamoured rapidly, though just as swiftly fall out of love. Love partnerships start off in the heights of excitement only to conclude spontaneously, shortly after they began. Your likes and interests tend to be made up of the unusual, untraditional, and quirky, and you love to experiment with something new and different. You are particularly adventurous with your emotions. More likely to pay attention to what you are pursuing, you often discard what you have already obtained. Sticking things out long-term is not something you can usually do in your relationships and you are much happier in unconventional situations that do not tie you down, allowing you to roam free. You want to experience as much as possible, with as many people as possible, and a monogamous partnership might be too restrictive for you. This need for independence may cause you to either consciously or subconsciously seek out individuals who are not entirely available to you, as this keeps the situation from becoming too serious; a detached approach is more your style. Secret relationships are also a possibility here.
Your feelings are apt to be unpredictable and volatile. You are emotionally fickle and it is anyones guess what you will be feeling from one moment to the next. These erratic moods frustrate you as you cannot comprehend why they occur. The tension you feel forces you to take your negative emotions out on whatever unfortunate soul is nearby. Much of this tension can be tempered by channelling your energies creatively, as you are talented in the creative fields. If you are able to make use of these emotions to create, you will find them much easier to handle.
Naturally magnetic, others are drawn to your sexual allure and exhilarating personality. You find it difficult to stay in one place or situation for very long and would do well with a career that allows you opportunity to travel often, as this will appease your curious heart. Circumstances must be always moving somehow, never standing still. Usually you are unconcerned about the opinions of society and will do what you feel is best for yourself and your own life. However, try to develop self-restraint in regards to your sensuality as you can be prone to taking things a bit farther than you should. Discover ways to balance your unconventional interests with the needs of those around you, or you will find yourself more of an outcast than even you are comfortable with.
You are accepting and understanding, usually letting go of peoples foibles and letting them try once more, even if they have wronged you in the past. You believe that people should strive to be as good of a person as they can be and when people are around you, they tend to adopt this attitude for themselves. Your presence has a way of evoking joy and bringing people comfort. Your abundant social connections are largely due to an extremely giving nature, which people appreciate and gravitate towards. This placement is likely to bestow you with good luck in your finances. You enjoy making people laugh and will do so at your own expense, if necessary. Filled with positive thinking, you believe in humanity as a whole. You have a great deal of empathy for others and are gentle with, and receptive to, their emotions. It is natural for you to try to see things from another persons point of view and you truly listen when people are talking to you. You do not cast judgement upon others and people sense this about you and therefore take your to heart. However, sometimes you become so engrossed in having fun that you procrastinate in doing your duties. In addition you need to be mindful not to over exert yourself. If you cannot find equilibrium within yourself, you will tend to eat more than you should. Tasty snacks and rich meals make you feel emotionally secure when you cannot derive this another way; restrain from these cravings of they will only create larger challenges for you later on.
You are drawn to all things unconventional, untraditional, eccentric, or just plain odd. The old-fashioned way of doing things is not for you and you will not pay old traditions any mind when you are making your decisions. Searching for new experiences, you are always ready and willing to go off on a random adventure. You enjoy keeping up to date with all of the newest technology and often are the first to have the latest gadgets and gizmos. You are very independent and need a great deal of space to venture forward into the world. Progressive and innovative, you strive for change and reform of some sort. You think outside the box and can be madly brilliant with finding creative answers to whatever problem you are presented with. Artistic and highly intuitive, you must find an outlet to express these gifts. You are able to remove yourself from the lower impulses of human nature and call on your more enlightened self for guidance and purpose. Many times situations sort of just happen to you, spontaneously and seemingly at random; you can never quite know what to expect in your life. Some unseen force seems to be protecting you as you can get big breaks just when you felt time were running out.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
There is a possibility with this placement to benefit humanity by using your imagination and ingenuity. Frequent fluctuations and transformations are likely to be part of your life and aid you in improving yourself and the lives of others. Intuitively you are aware that these fluctuations are good for you and are therefore welcoming of them. You find yourself striving to better the world, and you are able to do this peacefully and lawfully, without causing strife or disharmony.
You like to keep your feelings under a tight reign. This placement helps to balance your feelings even when circumstances are difficult. Others may be frantic during these times, yet you remain calm and collected. You are reasonable and unbiased during stressful situations which help you to solve the underlying issue amidst emotional chaos. This placement allows you to concentrate more effectively. You do not skirt your duties and people know they can rely on you to do what you have committed to doing. You are loyal to those in your circle and to the people you feel close to, supporting them behind the scenes. You dislike being idle and enjoy watching the fruit of your labour. Mentally you tend to stick to the conservative route, letting tradition guide you. Frivolous thoughts for the sake of fun are not really your cup of tea; you take a more sombre approach. However, you are not always able to show your feelings towards those you care for. It would be beneficial if you could develop a more open manner and convey these inner emotions outwardly to them somehow. You are independent and methodical, as well as having a good ability to organise, handle money and business, and behave diplomatically when interacting with people. You are very patient and willing to persevere until you have reached your goal. You are ethical, dutiful, faithful, and fair.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Do not rush a Libra into a decision; it is important to them to have the proper time to look at every angle of a situation before they reach an outcome. At worst, they may be debating at such great length that they become stuck and are unable to decide one way or another. One moment they try one side, the next the other, assuming that if they try each one, a resolution will come to them. Libras are naturally just, fair, harmonious, amiable, pleasant, out-going, romantic, reliant on others, disingenuous, lazy, and pleasure-seeking (learn about compatibility with Libra here). They feel most complete when they are in a relationship or on a team of some sort. Their environment is important to them and they need this to be peaceful and comfortable.
Libras have a hard time keeping their own company, as they find interacting with others to be vital to their well-being. They prefer to have someone in their life they can truly share with. However, they must watch out for being in love with the idea of love, rather than the person themselves. They can be rather romantic and become caught up in the moment, running thoughtlessly into a commitment before truly knowing the other person.
Unfortunately, Libras are so sensitive to the vibes of those around them, that if there is disharmony, the Libra may allow others to get away with more than they should just to keep the peace. Libras are also so bent on keeping everyone happy that they may sacrifice their own well-being in the process.
Trouble with indecision can be a tough challenge for a Libra to rise above. It is likely that many beneficial chances may pass them up while they are considering their options. They find it difficult to decide on one option when they can see the merit in all of them. However, this allows them to be experts in counselling others because they can see the entire picture rather than being biased towards one side or the other. They must understand that they cannot be everything to everyone and learn when to stand their ground.
Another issue for Libras are their tendency to work as little as they are able to get away with. They are not likely to be seen as hard-working individuals. It is not that they are lazy per say, more so that they require inspiration.
It is imperative that a Libra develop a way to make decisions for themselves, otherwise they will be taken advantage of by more assertive characters, as it is easy for these people to influence a Libras thought process.
Librans are intellectuals with a creative mindset and outgoing personality. Often others will not be made aware of their mental activity due to their pleasing and sociable demeanour. This trait may instead come out in subdued methods of manipulation, which they are particularly gifted in.
You are warm, considerate, amiable, positive, balanced, and socially pleasing. You are a wonderful companion to your mates and are gifted at making others feel cared for and at ease. While you are quite the people person, you are also very logical and rational, with good decision-making abilities, if only you could make up your mind. You enjoy artistic pursuits, especially that which may incorporate music; you may be interested in working as an entertainer. Social relationships are a necessity for you and you abhor any sort of conflict, especially emotionally. What you long for is harmonious interactions where you feel things are evenly balanced. You dislike manual labour and prefer to stick to white-collar professions. At times you may sacrifice things that are important to you just to keep the harmony or you may become elusive, where others cannot seem to get an answer from you one way or another; indecision can become a major problem for you. Inwardly you may be at war with yourself although you do not let others see this. Coming to a conclusion about something is challenging because you easily comprehend the different angles of each situation and wish to be just to each consideration. Be sure that you uphold your own values.
You are most gifted in being able to comprehend every angle of a situation and come to a diplomatic resolution to the problem. You are rational, harmonious, just, perceptive, and socially adept. You work well in a team environment. You are able to stay cool and focused on the issue at hand and remain impartial; this makes you well-suited to a career in mediation, politics, or consulting. You strive to keep justice in a harmonious fashion, regardless the circumstances. Highly artistic, you are able to work in creative endeavours or projects that deal with people of different cultures. Your mind is logical and balanced, and you easily convince others of your viewpoints. You are adaptable and prefer to hear every aspect of a story. However, this trait can make you indecisive as you too easily comprehend each angle and it can be difficult for you to decipher which story holds the most weight. Comparing and contrasting, analysing continuously while finding interesting ways to explain your discoveries; this is what you are most skilled in.
You are patiently loyal to those you love, giving and helpful whenever you are needed. You tend to express your affection through acts of kindness rather than through words or some sort of extravagant romantic gesture. Something about being too emotionally open makes you uncomfortable and youd prefer to be more reserved in your expressions. There may be insecurity that you are unattractive or unlovable somehow. Your own doubt causes you to become fault-finding in your significant other and difficult to please. Beware that you do not wait so long for the elusive perfect partner that you waste your chances at happiness with someone real. You expect your environment to be neat and organised. Developing a way to aid others can help you to counter your tendency to complain and criticise. Despite these tendencies, you are gentle, compassionate, and kind which allows you to do well in professions where you are caring for others.
Conflicts are difficult for you to handle and you may even sweep things under the rug just to keep the atmosphere harmonious. You feel uneasy with overt confrontation or perceived hostility. You do not typically strive to climb the corporate ladder as the competition deters you. It is more valuable to you to be content internally. You may feel lost when you are thrust into circumstances that require assertive behaviour. However, you will fight to the death, if need be, to protect those closest to you. You become very defensive of the ones you love if you feel they are being mistreated somehow.

Stressful circumstances unravel you and it would be best if you avoided environments where you needed to contend with others. If you are forced to deal with these sorts of situations, you will become grumpy and ill-tempered, brooding or sulking from the pressure. Your physical stamina is unsteady and directly correlates to the way you are feeling emotionally in the moment. Any sort of negativity will dampen your spirit and it will be physically apparent as you will become rather sluggish. Although you have a tendency to use food as a way to deal with emotional upsets, it would be wise if you abstained from this as it does you more harm than good. You are dedicated, emotional, instinctive, protective, empathetic, sincere, determined, and industrious. It would be best for your health if you were able to find a positive outlet for the large amount of emotional energy that you possess.

You are able to inspire people to aspire to higher achievements. You have a great appreciation towards aesthetically pleasing things and may be interested in justice or artistic pursuits. However, you may need to be mindful for a tendency towards indulging yourself or exerting your energy on too many extravagances, as well as choosing a partner for what they can bring you rather than who they are; love the PERSON, not what their status. You may be more interested in showing society that your union is prosperous rather than blissful. A good deal of your resources will be applied to your marriage, possibly due to your spouses luxurious desires.
You often fret about possible difficulties that those you care for may encounter; you will quickly come to their defence if you see any trouble.

They may have been cold or unable to show you emotionally that you were cared for. There is a tendency towards high expectations for your own children and you can be an authoritarian. Be mindful of your moods as you easily plummet into dark places. Subconsciously you may be always worried that others are out to cause you pain and therefore you retreat from becoming too attached to people. You are considerate though may not always be sympathetic towards others. This is often due to the fact that you are so scared of what someone else might do to you that you are blind to the pain others are experiencing.

You take great joy in social gatherings and long to unwind comfortably with your friends on a regular basis.
There is a strong energy directed towards religious pursuits, though you must be mindful not to become an over-involved zealot.

Dealing with foreign cultures may also prove irritating to you, though try not to concentrate on these difficulties too much and learn to reserve your energy.
You have unusual notions in regards to topics such as life and death, the afterlife, and sexuality which you do not readily share with others. You are strongly intuitive and capable of profound psychic insights. Particularly interested in the metaphysical realm, you find yourself consistently searching for information.

You may come across as aggressive in your dealings; allow yourself to develop tolerance, subtlety, and acceptance for others that may not always follow your fast pace. This is particularly important when dealing with the general public or society as a whole. This placement may elicit a need to either benefit society somehow or retreat from it altogether. There is also a possibility towards becoming power-hungry, though using a heavy-handed approach will often lead to failure. Use your many talents and abilities to improve humanity instead. You have a knack for understanding peoples true motivations and intentions and working in the background may appeal to you.
