The Elements of the Libra Sun Sign
Libra belongs to the ‘air’ element. Its ruling planet is Venus. The symbol for this sun sign is a balancing scale. The lower line of the symbol represents an earthly, rooted and rational approach. Friday is said to be the lucky day for a person whose birthday falls under the Libra sun sign. Pink and green are considered to the lucky colours for a Libran. The lucky numbers for this sun sign are said to be 4, 6, 13, 15 and 24. It is also believed that Librans are highly compatible with Aries and Sagittarius.
The Key Characteristics of People Born Under the Libra Sun Sign
The people born under this sign are known as ‘Librans’ informally. The strength of a Libran lies in being cooperative, diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded and social. However, they are also said to be indecisive and avoid confrontations at all costs. Sometimes, they know how to hold a grudge and harbour self-pity. They like to be amidst an environment of harmony and calmness. They are good at sharing their feelings with others and love to be outdoors. Being comfortable with serenity and harmony, they strongly dislike any kind of violence and injustice.
Librans are generally kind, gentle and have an appreciation for beauty. Librans are also known to be tactful and charming. They are believed to be diplomatic individuals who have the ability to listen to different points of view.
However, on the flip side, they like peaceful surroundings and an environment of harmony. This leads them to not be able to say ‘no’ sometimes which can put them under stress. Like the symbol of the balancing scale, a Librans prefer taking the middle path in order to please the people around them. A Libran can also become superficial at times, by paying excessive importance to the outer beauty rather than the inner beauty of a person. They can also get influenced by others’ views easily.
The Libra Man
The Libra man is a symbol of perfect balance. He is a believer in equality and justice and therefore he tries to stay objective in all circumstances. He seeks to please everyone and look at anything from everyone’s point of view. He is never in favour of any conflict and tries his best to avoid them. In order to maintain peace and quiet, he prefers to talk things through and understand everyone’s side of the story.
However, he makes it difficult for others to be patient with him because it takes him a lot of time to decide. This is because he has an inherent need to be fair in all his decisions. Accordingly, he will take time to come to a decision, whether he has to pick a movie to watch or plan anything far more serious for his future.
The Libra Woman
A Libra woman is playful and likes adventures. She thrives on laughter and joy. She prefers to feel free and stays away from negativity of any kind. She is also known for her beauty. She wields enough knowledge to be assertive and interact with confidence. The Libra woman is faithful, but her emotions are often hidden. She cares more about how she acts rather than how she feels. She is trustworthy but other people would need to understand her emotions before they can begin placing their trust in her.
