Libra, represented by the Scales of Justice, is focused on balance, peace, and harmony. Libra is known as the compassionate and charming peacekeeper, and people with Libra as their sun sign are experts in weighing every option in an effort to ensure balance. Those on a Libra’s good side see a lovable, fair, and genuine friend; but if a Libra doesn’t like you, you might see a more vain, indecisive, holier than thou person. This is because Libra doesn’t like to take the wheel if they don’t have to… It makes them feel bad, so in an effort to remain fair, they want someone else to make the decision.
Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet that controls love and beauty. Venus is the only planet named for a female goddess. She rules feminine power, as Venus was the Roman goddess of beauty, sex, pleasure, love, and attraction. Even Libra men appreciate the beauty of the universe on a deep level.
Venus provides Libra with a sophistication that other signs don’t tend to dwell upon. Libra enjoys luxury (like Leo, but unlike Leo, Libra is not entirely driven by their love of luxury). Libra is more into a fancy jacket, rather than an entire wardrobe full of extravagant clothes (re: fairness and balance).
