Libra is the seventh Sign of the Zodiac, and it is at this point in the Zodiac that we start to see a shift. While the first six Signs of the Zodiac focus on the individual, the last six focus on the individual's contact with others and with the world. Librans are first and foremost focused on others and how they relate to them. ! For a Libran, everything is better if it's done as a pair. Librans are good when paired up, too, since they epitomize balance, harmony and a sense of fair play. While they are true team players at work, their favorite partnership is at home: marriage. Librans feel most complete when they are coupled up with their lover, forever.

Perhaps more than with any of the other signs of the Zodiac, the symbol for this sign — the balance — sums up very accurately the basic motivation and needs of the individual who has it emphasized in his or her birth-chart. Balance and harmony are crucial if Libra is going to function at all well, and it is the vital factor if they are going to live a fulfilled and satisfying life.

Librans are desperate for the approval of others, and they may find themselves constantly trying to please friends and colleagues. When working with others, they demand that others put in as much effort as they do, and if this does not happen, Librans slack off too. They are willing to work selflessly for others, but they must guard against being used.

When Librans’ argue, they leave nothing unsaid, regardless of the consequences of their words. On the other hand, when others fight, they are always called upon as the mediator. They have a strong sense of right and wrong, and are a natural peacemaker.

Librans crave new knowledge, and have a particular interest in matters concerning other people and society as a whole. Relationships are very important to them, but they may find themselves looking for new experiences here, too. This could lead to a bit of sexual experimentation on their part, which in turn might lead to unfaithfulness.

A peaceful existence is also an important priority and the theme of "anything for a quiet life" is a recurring one. Interestingly, however, Librans need a great deal of reassurance that they are being loved, and it is not uncommon for them to go in for "rocking the boat" tactics to get that particular reassurance. They will sometimes aggravate their partners pand rovoke a row — because it is so nice when they make up afterwards. They may not care to admit that this happens, but it does, and it is all part of Libra's interesting but not uncomplicated set-up. But it is keeping the peace that they care most about, and this leads us to consider the possibility of their inherent indecisiveness.

Librans’ are however surprisingly strong-willed. They set out to accomplish their chosen goals and will find ways to succeed one way or another, usually by using their wit and charm. Emotional, physical, and psychological pleasure comes to them from beauty in all its forms. Books, music, flower, and perfumes are typical delights. If their environment is less than pleasing, they can become unhappy without even realizing that the surroundings may be responsible for their despondency. Social grace begins with good manners, extends to high level diplomacy, and ends with abhorrence of disagreeable confrontations. They promote peace and harmony, and usually opt to bypass hostile confrontations whenever some other method can be employed
