Libra - The Scales - When you use a pair of scales you must get exactly the right amount on each side to make them balance. If there is too much on one side, or too little on the other, the scales will tip. Libra Astrologers think this is a good symbol for Libra people because they seem to need equal amounts of everything in their lives to be happy. Libra people need to keep a balance between work and play, and between their thoughts and their emotions. Sometimes they seem to have trouble making decisions, but this is because they must consider all sides of a question first. They are always striving for perfection and balance, and love beauty and harmony around them. 

The most important thing for a Libra person is this idea of harmony. Libra people love to have people about them and to feel that they are appreciated. They usually get very interested in the opposite sex early in life, because they need love and companionship. Lots of Libra people are artistic and appreciate beautiful things. Sometimes they are talented at music or singing, and often dress well. But they may also be good at mathematics and science, because there is a clear, logical quality to the way they think. Usually Libra people are well liked because they are charming and easy to get along with. When a Libra person argues or behaves badly, it is usually because he feels that something is unfair. 

Libra is an air sign, like Gemini and Aquarius. If you are a Libra, think about how good you feel when everything in your life seems to be harmonious and well-balanced, and when you have friends to go places or do things with.  

Relationships to others are central in the life of Librans. They define themselves through their relationships with others, and social interaction is vital for their sense of well-being. They feel incomplete without company and the phrase "my better half" is a particularly appropriate way to describe their attitude to relationships.   

Both Libra and its opposite sign Aries are orientated towards others. However, whereas Aries is concerned with proving its personal prowess to others, Libra strives to achieve balance in relationships. The three air signs Libra, Gemini and Aquarius all share an interest in intellectual ideas. Gemini's focus is on gathering information and being well-informed, whereas Libra is more interested in gathering information in order to form an objective opinion. 

Finally, Aquarius uses knowledge to promote humanitarian ideals and be of service to the greater collective of which it is a part. From the two signs that stand in square to it, Libra can learn the value of empathy (Cancer) and self-reliance (Capricorn).
