Libra: September 23 - October 22
Libra Likes and Dislikes
By Brian Palenske
Our list of Libra likes and dislikes. Libra likes and dislikes were born under the rule of the beautiful, harmonious Venus
and grace of the element Air. A need for balance, fairness, and harmony are essential to this sign.
The Libra commitment to these values was expressed perfectly by the famous Libran Mahatma Gandhi, who brought down the rule
of the British Empire to achieve them.
Not every Libra is as determined as Gandhi, but if you have a friend who is a Libra, you might consider their motives for
what they do before you misjudge them.
Facts - Librans make their fair judgments by focusing on the facts of the situation. They rarely take an
approach that considers the psychological reasons for one's behavior; they are more concerned with logically
considering the factors that directly created it.
Logic - Their grasp of logic and fairness may be annoying to some, but any Libra makes an excellent
strategist, mediator or advocate.
Balance - Libra seek to find balance in all things. This includes finding a partner and mate for life.
The ideal person will of course bring additional balance and harmony to the relationship... and that balance may mean an
a very different approach to life.
Harmony - Librans have the ability to see both sides of a situation; they are known to find a point of
agreement or harmony between even the worst of enemies. This drive for harmony usually extends into their homes, where
there is little out of place, and things are organized in such a way as to enhance the beauty of the environment.
Arguments - It may seem like a contradiction in terms to say that people born under the sign of
peace-loving Venus love arguments, but these are not the screaming matches that other people engage in; Librans enjoy
arguing points of view, often playing the "devil's advocate" in order to make a point, or find the truth.
They consider pointing out the errors in another's judgment helpful, and the right thing to do; the only thing they
love more than beauty, fairness and harmony is the raw, naked truth.
Being wrong or rude - Librans are curious people who have definite likes and dislikes but rarely admit
to being wrong; they hate to be rude but will constantly adjust or modify things so that they can be as perfectly
balanced as possible, completely disregarding the feelings of the person who has a dying flower in the vase or things set
in a random fashion on an end-table. Although the Libra thinks of bringing the perfect balance to situations, some find
this behavior to be annoying.
Rushing into decisions - Librans hate being forced to make spot decisions, because they can't stand
the idea of making the wrong choice; they know the right one is there somewhere, and they are bound and determined to
find it. Some people think Librans take too long to make up their minds, but they always deliberate carefully by weighing
all the possibilities and options, and usually come up with the fairest and best solutions.
Unfairness - Unfairness in any form upsets the typical Libra, and they will do almost anything to right
the wrongs that affect them or those they care about. Their razor sharp intellects can probe almost any situation and
discover why something has gone wrong, so that they can proceed to find the way to make it right.
Falsehood - Many Librans are a little gullible, and consequently they become very angry when they
discover that they've been misled or misinformed. Being the victim of falsehood, or having to suffer a decision based
on a mistaken idea is something that they simply cannot abide.
Crowds - It's a rare Libra that finds comfort in crowded places; some astrologers think they are the
most claustrophobic of all the signs.
