Fair. Loyal. Intellectual. Creative.
Have I piqued your interest yet? I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing sexier than a Libra woman.
The Libra’s sign is the scale, which symbolizes her thirst for justice in life and love. She is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty: two things she never stops chasing.
An air sign, the Libra woman values over all else her ability to connect emotionally. And, as it turns out, she is most compatible with someone just like her: the Libra man.
Libras seek peace and harmony in every area of their lives. They may be innately attracted to drama, but they’re intuitive enough to know exactly when they have to trim the excess fat.
The Libra is a “people person,” but she can also be painfully shy.
She appreciates the finer things in life, but she doesn’t always need glitz and glam. She finds a poetry reading just as enlightening as the finest wine or a fancy restaurant.
The lovely Libra has it all, but there are certain things you should know about her before you date her.
1. A Libra woman is a hopeless romantic.
The Libra woman may come off guarded, but she’s got big dreams deep down. A Libra has lived through her share of romantic disappointments — just like everyone else — but she doesn’t let them stop her from believing in a fairytale ending.
She does run the risk of having unrealistic expectations, which is something she must learn to manage. Don’t worry, though. Her expectations won’t scare you away, because she isn’t big on flaunting her feelings. You’ll have to crack her open to get the details.
2. A Libra woman is intuitive.
She has a deep understanding of the ways of the world, and her maturity is both an asset and a liability.
A Libra tends to get lost in her own head, which can make her miss out on what’s happening right in front of her. At the same time, she knows how to reach out to every kind of person.
Empathetic in nature, she will always be able to relate to your hardships. This makes her nurturing in love. She won’t give up on you until you tell her exactly what’s on your mind.
3. A Libra woman is balanced.
She always listens to every part of the equation, weighing each opinion equally before making a well-informed decision.
Seldom playing the role of mediator, she doesn’t gravitate toward conflict, but she does know how to settle a score if she finds herself in an argument.
Not only does the Libra woman try her hard to keep balance in her loved ones’ lives, but she also craves stability in her own.
This isn’t to say that she always knows how to choose between head and heart — she doesn’t — but she’ll try to do what’s best by listening to both.
4. A Libra woman knows how to turn on the charm.
When it comes to love, Libras are old-fashioned. They court others, and they love to be courted. Anything less simply will not do.
Her best friends aren’t allowed to fall short of being loyal. And if you’re lucky enough to be her date, be sure to have red roses and dinner ready by candlelight.
She’ll always be on her best behavior, and she expects the same from you. As long as you have good intentions, you’re in the clear.
At the end of the day, a Libra woman won’t care about how much that bottle of champagne cost. She’ll be more concerned with how much thought you put into it.
5. A Libra woman is selfless.
She always puts the needs of others before her own. From being there for her best girlfriends to never canceling on a date, she respects everyone else’s time.
Her selflessness can be destructive. Instead of taking care of herself, she spends most of her time taking care of the people she loves most.
6. A Libra woman is everyone’s friend.
Never one to face a heated argument head-on, Libras shy away from aggressive confrontation. You’ll never find her making enemies, as gossip is futile in the world of the Libra.
In the Libra woman’s eyes, everyone’s words hold value. Not wanting to tip the scale too much in one direction, the Libra woman befriends everyone, but she also keeps everyone at a distance. Sometimes, this means trouble when it comes to getting romantically close.
7. A Libra woman has a good time on the couch and on the town.
The Libra woman is attracted to liveliness and laughter, and she is her best self in the company of someone who cares about her. But you can just as easily find her curled up with a good book as you can at the bar.
It’s no secret that the Libra tends to close in on herself, but she can’t help it. She’s a creative spirit. Libras find beauty in the simple things, and they know the importance of staying in tune with the arts.
When Libras lose touch with nature, they run the risk of losing touch with themselves.
8. A Libra woman is indecisive.
The Libra’s desire to find the moral middle-ground can work against her.
The Libra woman is a perfectionist, and she is afraid that one small mistake will throw off her Zen. Even the smallest decisions can be the most daunting, so don’t expect her to plan dinner.
Still, her indecision makes her a fair fighter and a solid partner. She’ll never choose between friends if it means trivializing an opinion, and she’ll always give a chance to the men who court her. She’s realistic, but she also sees the good in every situation.
9. A Libra woman is melodramatic.
Drama is one of the Libra’s greatest vices. She isn’t the kind to stir up a fight, but she’ll go drunk with her first taste of recklessness.
Never one to keep a tidy schedule, she finds organization to be a bore. Strap yourself in for both an emotionally and physically bumpy ride with a Libra woman.
