Libra is a masculine, cardinal Air sign ruled by Venus. It is seventh sign on the zodiac wheel, directly opposit Aries, and is named for the constellation Libra (the scales). On the darkside, this makes you a vain, shallow, petulant, spendthrift with an unerring eye for style over substance and a lifelong dedication to the quest for an easy meal ticket.
-Persoanlity- *shallow, superficial, shrewd* Inside anyone who has strong Libra influences is a person who is terrified of being alone. The fear is usually well controlled so the typical Libra always looks calm, collected, and in charge of the situation. Good-natured and loving, Libra can also be petulant, and even objectionable, when asked to take orders. Similarly, they are extremely intelligent, yet sometimes gullible; they enjoy talking to people, yet can also be very attentive listeners. The Libra symbol is a clue to understanding this apparent inconsistency in behavior. In attempting to gain an even balance, the scales first tip one way and then the other. This is how the typical Libra behaves- constantly trying to change to attain that perfect balance.
Libra Positive Characteristics:

Ruling Planet and its effect. Venus rules the zodiac sign of Libra, so anyone whose birth chart has a strong Libra influence will tend to be gentle, loving peacemaker – until the scales tip too far and need to be adjusted. Venus is the planet of values, self, possessions, beauty, and love.
Sex With Libra. When a typical Libra makes love it is not always a passionate experience, unless there are more passionate signs in the Libra’s chart. Libta may appear to be calm, confident, and in control, but they are often very uncertain about their sexual identity. They are usually very influenced by images of sexual attractiveness in the media, and no matter how beautiful, or handsome they are (and they often are) Libra can feel sexually very insecure and uncertain. All this doesn’t, however, lessen Libra’s interest in sex.
Relationships. The person who contemplates becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Libra must realize that Libra forms partnerships to avoid the terrible sense of loneliness which is always present at the heart of a Libra. Given this, the person who partners Libra can expect the marriage or the business to be happy and successful. Libra is the zodiac sign of partnerships, and typical Libra cannot imagine life without a relationship. The Libra will work hard and thoughtfully to make the partnership a harmonious balance of two personalities. Libra man as a partner- He will want a partner who has some good social or business connections. The young or immature Libra sees himself as the ugly duckling of the fairy tale. He will want his partner to be his personal mirror, reflecting back to him a self-image that is mature and confident. The developed Libra will indeed grow into a swan, but most Libras need plenty of encouragement on the way. In a relationship, Libra will generally take charge of the finances, making sure that there is always a good bank balance. Libras tend to have very strong views about money. Libra woman as a patner- The young, inexperienced Libra female will see a partner as the provider of all that she needs. As she matures, she will want to share herself with her partnr. She will have plenty of talent and energy, and her aim is to be successful in every field. She will bring logic and sophistication to any business and a calm beauty to her home- where she will help her loved one to relax and renew himself.
Leisure Activities. Most typical Libras are not overly fond of vigorous, sweaty exercise. This offends their preference for a harmony of the senses. Many Libras have a lasting interest in the arts. Of these, music is a high priority.
