Libra The Scales-How To Romance, Understand And Buy The Perfect Gift For A Libra
By Jackie de Burca..
Libra – Personality Overview
Libra : these jugglers of the zodiac are , on one side of the scales, in constant pursuit of balance and harmony yet, on the other are capable of swinging from one extreme of emotion or opinion to another in the blink of an eye. In many ways, the Libran has much in common with the twins, Gemini. It is sometimes hard to know who you are dealing with. At heart, a Libran is a conservative soul and will go to great lengths to maintain the status quo – they are great negotiators and peace makers.
Librans love to be likeable, and this can make them extremely lovable creatures who strive at all times to please. At its best you’ll find a lovely Libran hosting a dinner party with every guest eating their very favourite meal – even if that’s different for everyone around the table. At its worst, a Libran will be found running themselves ragged trying to please one and all, setting themselves impossible goals and feeling utterly overwhelmed and unsatisfied.
Librans are the thinkers and talkers of the Zodiac – they’re not often seen as the dynamic type. Their skills are to be found in planning, communicating and motivating. A Libran can see both sides of the scale, as it were, making them great mediators, politicians and diplomats in whatever employment role they take on. They’re great motivators who can endear themselves to just about anyone – it is hard to resist the Libran’s sales patter.
Libran’s are generous very literally to a fault. Yes, they are giving people but they love to be noticed for it. They will give gifts they can ill afford and give of their time. No good deed, as the old saying would have it, goes unpunished. The punishment for a Libran’s good deeds are friends and loved ones having to listen time and again to just how selfless the Libran’s actions always are or the family living on beans on toast to make up for the expensive gift lavished on a mere acquaintance at work as a birthday gift.
The scales swing wildly when it comes to living with a Libran. Some may be real neatness nerds – everything will be in its rightful place but with an inch of dust on top. Others are hygiene crazy. Ok, the floor tiles may be cracking but you could safely eat your dinner off them. Librans do, indeed, have a lazy streak which they overcome using their incredible negotiation skills. You’ll be washing up their dishes truly believing that it was you who suggested that you should do that.
Librans in Love
Libran’s are negotiators. As alluded to already, they love order and stability – Librans are not ones to be swept off their feet – they’ll need good reasons to make changes in their lives and that includes allowing someone get close to them. If you want a Libran to let you into their life, you might have to do really sell yourself or even get down to some hard bargaining.
Beware, if your intentions aren’t genuine a Libran is no fool and are the masters and mistresses of talking the talk: they’ll see right through you if you’re not sincere. Librans are the least greedy people in the zodiac. They won’t be sizing you up as a suitor with what you can give them in mind but what they can give you – a Libran needs to be needed and, when persuaded, loves to love.
Peace loving Librans are adept at pouring oil on rough waters and are capable of making anyone forgive them just about anything but don’t except the same graciousness in return. A Libran can seethe for days, weeks, even and though out and out rowing and crockery throwing is not the Libran’s style they are experts at the cold shoulder and can often seem as though, just for balance, they have a chip on both. If you have a lovers’ tiff with your Libran love it could drag on for a while – at least until you find another Libran to act as a mediator between the two of you.
Gifts for a Libran
If you are planning on buying your Libran a little something and you are on a budget, for goodness’ sake don’t take them shopping with you. Once they spot an item that they are drawn to they’ll go in for the hard sell. They’ll persuade you to fork out any amount of cash or credit on the object of their desire before the nearest sales person can get a, “Can I help you sir/madam?” in sideways.
Balance is always the key when trying to find something lovely for the Libran love in your life. If you are considering jewellery go for a set that matches – earrings and a necklace for a Libran lady or cuff links and tie pin for the gentle man.
Librans are great collectors and love to have a full set. Perhaps you could get them started on a new collection? China or figurines perhaps. Librans of both sexes have a deep appreciation for beauty and a love of art. Though autumn babies, Librans tend to prefer a pastel pallet in their homes and their dress. Sky blues, mint greens and lilacs are good colour choices for scarves, ties or even gems in elegant and never overly ornate jewellery.
be aware that they will already, most likely, have quite a selection. If you’re planning on a purchasing a perfume or an after shave budget for two. Your Libran will, no doubt, have a “day scent” and a “night scent” and probably one of each for each season and type of occasion. A gift of essential oils would be ideal for a Libran alchemist to brew up his or her own perfect fragrances and will appeal to their collecting bug as they add more and more deliciously scented oils to their collection.
