One of the Libra’s strongest traits, keeping the peace, can often become one of their weaknesses. Libras strive to make everyone happy, even at a detriment to themselves. This can be a problem when it comes to keeping up relationships; Libras tend to avoid conflict at all costs and usually end up developing a deep resentment for those around them if their needs are not properly addressed by the other party.
The Libra may also struggle to express their own opinion. They can be overshadowed by others and will allow more dominant voices to take the lead, simply following along to avoid creating waves.

This type of behavior can backfire on them and potentially cause rifts between relationships with partners, family, and friends.
Libra Career & Money
Libras find great joy in having a lot of money. They enjoy purchasing and obtaining expensive things, but they can be indecisive about just what exactly to spend their money on. It can be hard for Libras to save up a lot of money, despite their love for it, due to the fact that they constantly spend it on themselves or others.
Not suited for jobs that require hard labor or risk, Libras thrive in environments where they can create or pursue knowledge.

A romantic and passionate sign, Libras are all about taking things slow. They are never in a hurry, and find themselves moving at a steady, leisurely pace with partners.

How to Attract a Libra
Libras love flirting and adore anything that has to do with romance. First dates are a fun activity for the Libra and not nearly as nerve-wracking or unpleasant as they are for other signs. They are soft-hearted and self-confident which can be off-putting to some potential partners, but they will appreciate any effort made or attention given to them.
An intelligent conversation or a casual flirt is attractive to a Libra; they don’t appreciate overconfidence or pompousness as a personality characteristic and will probably be turned off by a person approaching them like this. A potential partner who is even-tempered and soft-spoken, yet firm about their decisions and beliefs, is the most attractive to a Libra.
Creativity and loyalty are essential in attracting a Libra, as these are both traits they value greatly. Due to their indecisiveness and fear of upsetting a partner, they appreciate when their partner takes charge and organizes dates. This will make them feel more comfortable and taken care of when around their partner.

How to Attract a Libra Man
A male Libra is a great conversationalist. They know when to talk and give their opinions, and when to simply listen to their conversation partner. They love the idea of love and will appreciate romantic tendencies in their partner. Libra men will also appreciate a partner who approaches them calmly and without any strong expectations for where the relationship should be going.
A Libra man will greatly enjoy the opportunity to have a civil debate and dive into any logic surrounding each person’s position. They can be attracted by intelligent discussions and a fair-minded look at ongoing issues in the world. However, a male Libra will not appreciate it if a partner becomes too hot-headed or emotional when discussing certain topics. This action, to a Libra, signifies the potential for future conflict.
Libra men also appreciate physical beauty and love it when a potential partner will keep up appearances. If a partner begins to neglect their appearance when they are out and about with them in public, it is not uncommon for the male Libra to lose interest. On the other hand, it will be attractive to a Libra man if their partner invests money and time in their appearance and goes to lengths to make sure they are stylish.
When trying to attract a Libra man, remember that they need to be flattered and made to feel like they are special. Libra men appreciate romantic gestures, as long as they are not too grand or open to the public, and love it when a partner is patient with them. The worst thing to do is make a male Libra feel rushed or pressured into commitment; this is a good way to lose their attraction.
How to Attract a Libra Woman

They also enjoy beautiful places and are sure to appreciate a partner who offers them the chance to explore the finer things in life. Libra women are attracted to partners that will treat them fairly and become an intellectual match.
Any partner who remembers to flatter and give a Libra woman words of affirmation on a regular basis is an attractive one. A Libra woman appreciates sweet nothings and loves small romantic gestures that show she is appreciated. Additionally, female Libras are attracted to partners who will participate in their social circles and be outgoing with them. However, they do not enjoy being around someone who will play mind games and actively participate in gossip.
Much like the Libra man, the Libra woman appreciates intelligent conversation that is held with a balanced, even-minded approach. They don’t appreciate emotional outbursts or a person who is deeply self-indulgent, as they are unable to relate to these characteristics and find them unattractive.
A Libra woman expects loyalty and will be attracted to a man who can demonstrate this to them. They are not impressed by a partner who is less than faithful or one who does not make them a top priority. A female Libra will be attracted to a man who is dedicated, decisive, and calm, and someone who will take time to organize any outings or activities for them to enjoy together.
Libra Family & Friends
Generally very outgoing in nature, a Libra will often be surrounded by a large group of friends and family. Libras take time to organize gatherings and social outings for people in their circle, and feel fulfilled when members of their social circle get along well. Libras have a passion for fun times where everyone is enjoying themselves and will avidly look for opportunities to create these situations.
Libras will often take on the role of a mediator in their friend group due to their constant need to keep the peace. This can make them the friend that all of their loved ones seek out when needing advice or when a conflict needs settling. While a Libra enjoys creating balance between their loved ones, they can tend to get upset when their social circle is constantly creating dramas and spreading gossips they have to deal with.
Within their families and with their friends, Libras are very willing to help anyone who is in need. They will go out of their way to be honest and caring to just about anyone, and will greatly appreciate this generosity being returned to them. However, Libras will need to be careful that they do not let their good nature be taken advantage of by the people who are close to them.
Libras tend to pull back out of friendships that become too emotionally dependent to them. They appreciate love from friends and family members that is kind and honest, and yet not too overwhelming or emotionally charged.
All signs are associated with a body part that is more sensitive or prone to issues, and for the Libra that is the kidneys, the circulatory system, and the lumbar area of the back. For the most part, Libras are very robust and healthy people, but they may find that their lower back is the first area to start hurting when they are tired or feeling weak. They may also experience issues with kidney stones or their skin at some point in their lives.
Because everything about Libras has to do with balance, they also need to seek balance in their health regimes in order to stay completely well. A balanced diet that avoids lots of junk and processed foods is the best option for the Libra. Any type of diet involving whole, fully nutritious foods will balance their bodies and keep them in good condition. The sodium phosphate that is found in foods such as strawberries, spinach, apples, and oats is a valuable mineral for Libras as it helps balance acids and alkalis in the body and assists in eliminating waste, working to keep the body functioning at its best.
Excessive amounts of alcohol are a good idea to avoid for this sign. This is to help reduce strain on the kidneys. Carbonated beverages should also be avoided when possible, and the proper amount of water should be consumed each day for a Libra.
A proper sleep regime is very important to a Libra’s well-being. Without sleep, the body cannot recharge and repair itself, and this is especially important for the Libra who needs this time to rebalance their bodies. An active lifestyle will also suit a Libra in terms of health.
