The Libran personality is noted for their charm and grace in expression. However, they project their individuality through cooperation with others. Librans usually do like to be alone. They are affectionately referred to as “social butterflies”. Happiness for them means sharing their lives. The ability to see any matter from other people’s viewpoint is there strongest virtue. Being an air sign, Libra is prone to being intellectual and actively seeks knowledge, new ideas and mental stimulation. Motivated by a strong sense of justice they are especially adept at analyzing what is occurring in the society around them. All matters pertaining to psychology and human relationships are apt to be of deep concern to them. They make good counselors, often seeking to help people with their personal problems. Decision making or supporting one side of an argument often involves taking one person’s side against another and Librans have a deep dislike for hurting others. Because of this they frequently choose to play the role of “peacemaker”. When dealing with their own personal issues their weakness is procrastination or indecision brought on by excessive worry over trivial points.
