Personality traits of Libra

Positive: romantic, idealistic, urbane, charming, easy‐going
Negative: indecisive, flirtatious, too compromising

Libra relationships

This is the sign most associated with relationship and typical Librans don’t really like doing anything on their own. They have charm and are socially skilled. At best, they are fair, reasonable and able to see the other person’s point of view – little wonder that Libra is thought of as being the most civilized sign of the zodiac. However they can weigh things up just too much and wind up being downright indecisive and vague. At worst, they agree to things, not only from any conviction or fully formed opinion but also out of a need to keep the peace. They need to make sure that their necessity that everything be ‘nice’ doesn’t make them an avoider, frightened of dealing with difficult issues.

Libra romance

More sentimental than passionate, Librans are, nevertheless, VERY concerned with romance. This sign really prioritises marriage and has a huge capacity to compromise. They can feel quite lost on their own and will always put their partners first. Libra is renowned for its diplomatic skills and is usually therefore very skilled at communication; they can express what they want and how they feel and be very tactful doing it. However, being so indecisive they don’t always know how they feel and can therefore be rather dithery. Out of the whole zodiac, Libra is the sign most concerned with marriage so they have a huge investment in making it work. However, unhappy Librans don’t usually hang around for long; for them, hope triumphs over experience and they are sure there is a perfect partnership out there somewhere.
