Libra & Love
Being the sign that rules commitment, you have no qualms about this issue. When you find someone you really care for, you’ll commit fully to them. It can take some time to get there though, not because you don’t take dating seriously, but because you can’t make up your mind.
Since you present yourself so well, you usually have plenty to choose from, but you don’t know how to make decisions well, so it can take time before you pick that one person you want to be with. The perfect person for you is someone who has similar interests, knows how to behave with others, treats you with respect, and considers you an equal partner in the relationship.
You tend to be attracted to people based on their looks and the way they come across, but looks can be deceiving. It’s hard for you to connect with people emotionally, preferring to have a cool exterior, but that won’t give you the kind of committed relationship that you’re looking for. You don’t like things to get messy, but it has to happen in a relationship in order to build strong bonds that will hold you together.
The signs that you tend to be most compatible with are the ones that are in the same element as yours, which are Gemini and Aquarius. Gemini will bring laughter, and Aquarius will expand your world. Gemini will help you with your daily life, and Aquarius will help you think big.
Both will connect with you mentally, have plenty of mutual friends, and feel like you’ve known them forever, even if it’s only been a day. They’re easy signs for you to be with.
The sign opposing yours in the zodiac tends to be the one you have the most sparks with, and for you, that’s Aries. Their impulsivity gets on your nerves, their constant energy is exhausting, and you feel like you have to discipline them, but they can help you learn to let go sometimes, loosen up, and take charge, and passion will always be there.

Libra & Money & Career
When it comes to money, you tend to plan well and think about things for a while before you buy anything. You create a plan for a budget and you try to stick with it, but you may buy things that are designer simply because they’re designer.
You wear and buy the best because you think they’re the best quality and you want to look the best, and you feel they’ll have a lot of use value. You won’t only splurge on yourself though, and have no problem buying your friends and family nice gifts.
You want to look good in every way, but that can lead to bad spending. Don’t have too many credit cards and know that you’re so stylish, you don’t need to buy the most expensive clothes to look good.
When it comes to your profession, you’re usually drawn to something artistic, and many of you can be artists, musicians, fashion designers, or interior decorators. Being so compromising, you can be a mediator. Since you’re concerned with what’s fair, you can make a good judge. Many of you work better with a partner, no matter what profession you’re in.
You need your work environment to be calm and harmonious, otherwise you’ll feel unbalanced and out of sorts, which keeps you from doing your best work. You can play mediator between coworkers and be the one everyone goes to when they want fights solved, but it’ll get to you after a while.
You’d prefer not to work by yourself though, liking company, but any partner you have would need to be an equal partner, and not try to boss you around. Some other Libra professions are: actor, jeweler, diplomat, florist, makeup artist, lawyer.

Libra & Health
Libra rules your kidneys, so watch for problems like kidney stones or diabetes. Stay on top of your blood sugar whether you have a family history of diabetes or not. Most importantly, find a way to manage your stress levels when you’re in an unhealthy environment. If your life is drastically out of balance, it’ll impact you physically, manifesting in all sorts of pain and making it easy for you to get sick. If you get a cold that you can’t shake, take a look at your life and see what could be the source of the problem.
Libra, you’re the seventh sign in the Zodiac, and are an intellectual sign concerned with fairness, equality, and justice. You want everyone in the world to be treated fairly, with dignity and respect, and to have equal rights and protections. No one is beneath you, and you wish everyone felt the same way.
You hate to see all of the fighting and destruction in the world, and want everyone to just get along. You crave harmony, and will any compromise to get it. Sometimes, this makes you compromise too much, and you make sacrifices you shouldn’t make or keep quiet about things you shouldn’t for the sake of keeping the peace.
Balance in your life is one of your main goals, and you do your best to achieve balance in all areas of your life. You try to divide time equally between work and play, friends and family, me time and we time. It’s a constant struggle, and one you’ll never really win, but you keep trying anyway.
You tend to be horribly indecisive, vacillating over any and all choices you have to make, and you prefer to leave decisions up to others. You need to stop worrying about pleasing everyone and just go with what you want, but you care too much for others not to tale them into consideration.
Your loved ones are important to you, and you take your close relationships seriously. You care about all of them and try to tend to each with care. Your loved ones don’t have to doubt your commitment to them because it’s apparent in how much you work at the relationship.
Your only problem is you tend to be a relationship perfectionist, always seeing the flaws and never happy with less than perfect, and it can be too much. No relationship can be perfect, but that doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for you.
Being with loved ones is wonderful for you, and with your charming, graceful, and polite nature, they can’t get enough of you. You carry yourself well with others, always knowing exactly how to act in public, and knowing just what to say to someone. Who wouldn’t want to be around you?

Natal Planets & House Cusps in Libra:
Natal Moon in Libra
Libra Moons usually feel that they need to be in a relationship to feel secure (unless you’ve got a lot of fire or Aquarius), and you may always spend time around people, hating to be alone. Many of these natives are the ones who can’t eat dinner alone. You want to share everything with people, feeling that strength is in numbers. Just be careful you don’t go from one relationship to the next without spending any time getting to know yourself. You can be charismatic and engaging, and people may be drawn to you.

You can be quite competitive, though it usually won’t be in a bad way, and can sway people to see your side easily. If you see people being treated unfairly, it really irks you, and you want “world peace.” You can make compromises with ease, and likely do a lot to keep the harmony. Your home should be a place that’s pleasant and attractive to you.

You try to be diplomatic in the way you talk to people, not wanting to hurt anyone, and find gentle ways of breaking things to people. Compromise can be your middle name.
