LIBRA Librans often work really hard, but they also possess the secret of really knowing how to relax. For Libra there is always time: time to get ready, to go out (even if their friends and partners are waiting impatiently downstairs), time to talk, drink coffee, or just lie about. But almost always when work projects have been placed well under control.
That Librans are romantics there is no doubt, and their need for a permanent relationship is paramount. Most do not fully develop, psychologically or emotionally, until that all important fact has been settled. This is a very basic psychological motivation, and because this is so, it can all too easily be the case that Librans rush into a relationship at an age when perhaps they are not ready to make a full commitment. Sometimes less forthcoming types find Librans a little gushing. Their worst fault can be resentfulness; and there is, in spite of a need for total harmony, a perverse tendency to ‘rock the boat’. Libran children are much liked by their teachers for their natural charm and good manners.
Libra In Love A Libra longs for partnership, it is their heart’s forever-wish; but to love a Libran, you must love them completely. A Libra will need space; they need freedom to be who they are in any given moment. They want to suffer, celebrate, hate and adore who they are. These things are always changing and often conflicting, because they are constantly discovering new pieces of their personality and who they really are.
Libra At Work Libras crave the exchange of ideas, conversation and chatter, and if all this takes place in a social situation, so much the better. The smooth talker of the Zodiac has arrived! The Scales, of course, would prefer to be known as a networker. Harmony is important to Libras, as these charmers enjoy beautiful surroundings that are pleasing to all; they also appreciate the concept of ‘go along to get along,’ important to peace and mutual understanding in business as well as in life.
Loves: Beauty and all things that are lovely. Adores people who are fun, good natured, courteous and who appreciates them and tells them so!
Hates: Bad manners, bad language and anything beastly. Ugliness in all its forms.
Needs To Cultivate: A more definitive outlook which does not include wondering what people think of them. To choose themselves and not to do something just to please others.
Today the Sun enters conscientious Virgo and your house of seclusion, marking the start of your annual period of hibernation. It isn’t likely that you will go off to live in a cave. However, you may feel the need to put the brakes on your busy life and slow things down enough to enjoy the scenery. Taking life at a more leisurely pace will allow time to reflect on the successes and setbacks of the past year. Evaluate where you need to cut your losses and which goals should be carried forward into the year that begins with your next birthday.
