Libra, the seventh sign of the Zodiac, is the relationship sign. Libras are social, value beauty and refinement, love, art, and are natural diplomats. Libra governs marriage, partnerships of all kinds, and war (which is what happens when love/partnerships break down).
One of the biggest complaints against Libras (being a Venus rules sign) is that they are quick to proclaim love, then just as quickly move on. They have a lot of trouble making decisions and rarely can tolerate disharmony – therefore avoid fights at all costs.
In fact, so awful is disharmony or fighting to a Libra – they very rarely get angry. But when they lose it – it is complete, like a furious storm arriving and leaving just as quickly – leaving them weak, shaken, and distraught.
Lest you think Libras weak, with all their trying to “get along” and appease others, Libras are a Masculine, Cardinal sign. So, don’t be fooled! Librans are rightly described as an “iron fist in a velvet glove”! They just would just prefer to get their way via charm. And charmers they are!
