Libra woman – 24th September-22nd October
Have you ever come across girls who look at you in the eye every time you talk and are constantly interrupting your flow of words with their ‘come to the point’ instructions? Well, those are the ones governed by the sign of scales… I mean Libra. Libran girls are brisk, business-like and precise. They dislike dilly dallying and are rarely found to mince words. Libra ladies are graceful and well poised to the point of perfection… as crisp as newly minted bank notes.
As much as she is intense, the Libra woman is also emotional and sensitive. If you are friends with a typical Libran, you would know what a fantastic sense of humour she’s got. And it is a sight to watch her do the balancing act with her constantly tipping scales. All in all, she’s a wonderful person to be with.
How to identify a Libra woman in a crowd?
To be able to identify her in a crowd you would need to watch her behaviour very carefully. If you are a stranger to her you would notice her interaction with you will be limited to exchange of pleasantries. But sitting in the same gallery she would be totally involved in the full spirit of having fun in solitude or with her close friends.
What is interesting to observe in a Libra woman is how her facial expressions change from intense to absolute fun and back to intense within a span of ten minutes. Another giveaway of her identify as a true Libran is the prankster in her. You may not detect the mischief monger in her (this lady can keep a straight face I tell you!) but she is quite prone to playing pranks. If you are the butt of a practical joke among your friends, chances are the mind behind it is that of your Libran female buddy. With her great sense of humour she is excellent company to hang out with. But a Libra girl is also self-obsessed to some extent, which is why she is misunderstood by people around her.
How does she score on the following points?
Appearance: Libra women are extremely fashionable. They are also very adaptive of trends – from shorts and tees at home to evening gowns at cocktail events, a Libra girl can do it all in a day. She is also quite detailed about all aspects of grooming… right down to her manicured fingers, trimmed and polished nails, well set hair, etc.
Ambition: Amongst all women, a Libra woman is the most ambitious one and sky’s the limit for her. She wants to grow and climb to top positions and titles. She also has the innate talent of knowing how to get things done and perceiving where she needs to be… at any given point in time.
Self respect/Ego: Self respect and ego make for a curious case for Libra women. I have observed that they possess a great amount of self-respect and a greater amount of ego. Many times in life her ego is what gets this lady in trouble. She has a unique was of getting herself into a tight spot… a point of no return. And it is usually her ego that stops her from mending matters.
What are the finer traits of her personality?
There is a peculiar way Libran women have of dealing with people. For starters they don’t want to hurt anybody, especially emotionally. Because of this they find it difficult to say ‘no’ to anyone. Once they have given their word, they find it difficult to back out or fulfill their commitments. To get out of this tricky situation, they start re-negotiating. Because of this habit she may not hurt anybody but fails to make them happy.
A Libra girl is charming to a great extent (I would give her an eight on ten for that!). Like her male counterpart she has a smooth tongue and therefore is very convincing and persuasive.
Being conservative in thought and action is another of her feature. Not that she lacks confidence but she will prefer towing the traditional line rather than doing something out of the box. She prefers ‘stunning’ people with her success and not with her untoward actions.
She also gets easily angry… the kind who is ready to flip their lid at a moment’s notice. But she is a thinker and a rational one at that, so she is quite capable of reasoning and managing her anger.
Is there something more to her personality?
Well, I guess there is! Her nature has an uncanny resemblance to the symbol of her zodiac sign – the scales. A Libra woman enjoys all good things in life but she also knows that these things come with a tag… expensive one at that. So she has to do a fine balancing act between fulfilling her desires and saving for the rainy day.
Another reason why her scales tip to and fro is her need to conform to the likes and dislikes of her loved ones and her need to have her way.
She also has an instinct towards fair play and you will find her playing arbiter or mediator amongst friends and family.
She is also quite opinionated and is open to views from others too. Like her male counterpart, she likes to weigh the pros and cons of every situation before forming an opinion. Although this habit is a healthy one in terms of business or life in general, she takes it rather too seriously in matters of heart. You will have to spend much quality time with her before getting the classic ‘yes’ from her.
This woman also has a lot of tact in her… in the way she speaks and behaves. Add to that is her intelligence. This makes her get along well with people. Her natural friendliness makes her all the more charming. Libra females also have a good sense of humour.
How is she when in love?
Love can completely floor her. A Libra woman is very romantic and gets totally involved with her man. When in love she can be extremely submissive and adjusting.
With love also comes understanding. A Libra girl is extremely understanding of the feelings and situations of her husband, children, family and friends. She is ever ready to help those she loves. But with people with whom she doesn’t share such a bond, her understanding can be had only with a good amount of reasoning.
It isn’t easy to win the heart of a Libra girl as she has high ideals for the man in her life. She seeks refinement, grace and intelligence (a goodly amount of all these qualities actually!) as well as understanding, sincerity and a balanced outlook towards life in a man. She wants her man to be strong enough to give her the security she needs and tolerant enough to give her the freedom she wants. And above all she wants her man to respect her for what she is.
While dating her you should…
… be on time! Yes, and that’s just for starters. The Libra woman is a stickler for etiquettes, so make sure that you memorise the social code of conduct before meeting her.
Let me simplify things here and take you one step at a time. Step one: be careful while selecting the venue. Remember the Libra girl appreciates beauty and has a strong aesthetic sense. Therefore make sure the restaurant that you choose has an appealing ambience.
Step two: She is ultra feminine. You can carry a bunch of flowers with you on your date. Sending her a touching text message just before you arrive would be perfect to get things started.
Step three: Close shave, gelled hair, good clothes(immaculate is the word here) and fabulous cologne can help you go a long waywith the Libra girl.
Step 4 and 5 are in the book and Audio book :-)
The Libra woman is governed by the sign of scales. She will swing to and fro with indecision and doubt. Confident and intelligent in her own right, she is nevertheless quite laid back. Known to be extremely feminine and charming, how much can she connect with the men on the zodiac? Let’s find out.
Libra woman and…
Aries man: 7/10. With the right amount of adjustments at both ends, this can be a good relationship. The Arian might have to curb his aggressive nature, while the Libra woman should learn to take fast decisions. Both are emotionally charged beings possessing the ability to interact with people. And that works in their favour.
Taurus man: 6/10. Although there are similar qualities, a long-term relationship is a difficult bargain for both. He is too possessive for the freedom-loving Libran and she is too outgoing for the homely Taurean.
Gemini man: 8/10. Wonderful chemistry! Both are outgoing and adventurous as well as adept at sharing a good conversation. The Gemini man will be able to meet the balancing needs of the Libra woman perfectly.
Cancer man: 6/10. A deeper understanding of each other’s traits can help this relationship. Since a Cancer man is not good at voicing his feelings, the Libra woman might feel frustrated. Problems can also arise over money matters, since the Cancer guy loves to save every penny, whereas the Libra girl loves to splurge.
Leo man: 9.5/10. A match made in heaven! Both share qualities that they take pride in. Outgoing, affectionate and fun loving, a relationship between the Leo man and Libra woman is likely to rock.
Virgo man: 5/10. This combination can work, but with a lot of effort. These two are poles apart as far as their attitude towards life is concerned. They would need to come to terms with the disparities in their nature to make this relationship successful.
Libra man: 7/10. This one can swing either way. Since both have similar traits, if they don’t keep their negatives in check, their relationship cannot stand the test of time. However, both will infuse each other with innate charm and their love for finer things in life can make their relationship last long.
Scorpio man: 6/10. In a Libra woman-Scorpio man combination, the path is strewn with potholes. Although she may find his passion attractive to begin with, she won’t be able to take his headstrong way easily. Likewise, he will find it difficult to give her as much freedom as she craves.
Sagittarius man: 8/10: Once they get the relationship started, it would be a ball. But the catch here is to get it started. Both are hesitant to commit and would need lot of convincing to agree for a long-term relationship. They have plenty of creativity and good humour to make their relationship an affair to remember.
Capricorn man: 4/10: This might be a case of attraction at first and repulsion later. She will like his ‘feet on the ground’ nature at first, but later get tired of it, while her gregariousness will fire his imagination initially, only to be burnt out later. This relationship can only work with continuous doses of understanding and unlimited compromises.
Aquarius man: 9.5/10: The relationship between these two will be based on mutual satisfaction. Since both would value each other’s freedom, there would be enough space for the relationship to mature beautifully. Both will enjoy each other’s adventurous streak, intelligent conversation and good humour.
Pisces man: 6/10: Again a relationship that can swing either way. If she learns to handle his idealistic and emotional nature and he learns to manage her intellectual mind and independent attitude, this relationship can be pulled off.
