Are you dating someone born between the end of September and the end of October? If so, it seems you have a Libra in your life. The Libra's element is Air and their sign is represented by a set of scales. Their ruling planet is Venus, which makes them wonderful lovers. Knowing more about what lies beneath the surface can help you successfully balance your relationship with your Libra.


Libras are very social creatures. They don't enjoy being alone; they prefer to be with a friend, a partner or a group. They don‘t mind going to parties or on vacation alone, because they never stay alone for long. Wherever they go, as long as there are people there, they have potential friends.

They're the perfect hosts when they invite people over, and don’t be surprised if there are a lot of impromptu visits, dinners and parties. They make the most charming and charismatic guest; they’re always invited back, everyone looks forward to their presence.

Libras are very social creatures. They don't enjoy being alone; they prefer to be with a friend, a partner or a group.

If you're dating a Libra, be prepared to handle a full social calendar. If it gets too much for you and you need to gracefully bow out of a few occasions, let them know. Just don’t expect to hold them back. They thrive on the interaction with others and depend on their relationships-- both old and new-- for a sense of belonging.

Ever the Peacemaker

Libras are real diplomats. They don't like to see anyone feeling bad, alone or angry. They'll always try to intervene and use their natural lovability to sooth ruffled feathers and make everyone happy. They're very good at understanding other people's point of view and feelings.

Because of this, they're sometimes inclined to bend over backwards for others, or hide their feelings to keep everyone happy. They are so easygoing that they're willing to make sacrifices if it means getting along. They want to be helpful and friendly, but sometimes it’s to a fault.

You need to remind your Libra that their feelings matter, too. There is such a thing as being too nice, and some people will take advantage of them for that.

Need for Attention

Libras are generally insecure; they need a lot of attention, encouragement and reassurance from people. This is why they are so people-oriented and love to please-- they want everyone’s approval.

Don’t let their happy-go-lucky exterior fool you, though. Sometimes they’re not what they appear to be.

Learn to discern when they’re putting on brave front and remind them that they can confide in you-- once you win their trust, they will. When a Libra opens up to you, it is a true bonding experience—if they feel safe with you they’re willing to share themselves and all they hold inside.

Libras want to know they are accepted and loved. They need to hear it. They need you to tell them they are appreciated, respected and cherished. If you can give them that, they will be very grateful and very loyal.

Enjoy the Adventure

Libras are fun people. They’re funny and endearing, creative and spontaneous. They’ll have lots of hobbies and interests that are exciting or artistic. They love to play, to explore and try new things. Living with a Libra can be an incredibly uplifting and cheerful life. Just help them keep those scales in balance.
