Libra Woman Personality, Traits & Characteristics
Libra women are community builders and truly believe in the ideal of all for one and one for all. They think that the strong should protect the weak and that everyone should play by the same rules for common benefit. They are deeply empathetic, and are truly able to understand things from the perspectives of others. This means that they form strong friendships quickly.
Libra women are innately social animals and thrive off the energy of being around others. For this reason, they are rarely alone, and they are largely defined by the people that are closest to them. They are peacekeepers and they are always looking for the best way to keep everyone happy. While they will always stand up for someone they need, they will do whatever it takes to avoid conflict in their own lives.

Likes & Dislikes
For Libra women, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and they will often emulate the people they respect the most. They also appreciate the finer things in life, and what the things that they own say about them. While these women aren’t natural leaders, they like to be at the center of every social gathering, and like being the one who knows everything about everyone.
There is nothing that Libra women like more than spending their time with their nearest or dearest, whether it is just sitting around and chatting or embarking on a genuine adventure. They tend to stay close to home, as while they make friends quickly, they don’t like to be far from the people they consider their pack. They hate to miss out when they know that their loved ones are doing something fun.

Home Life & Family
Libra women like to play mother hen to everyone. They are always offering to host the street party, babysit, or help out with local groups. She likes to have the finer things, and while her house is always immaculately designed and full of the best things, it is never stuffy. It is definitely not a “shoes off” environment. Home is for living, and sharing time with the most important people, not a temple to cleanliness.
Career & Money
Libra women thrive in roles where they need to get the best out of others. They make excellent human resources managers, head hunters of mediators. Their deep empathy means that they also work well in caring roles, including jobs such as life coaches and therapists. They are less well suited for management and leadership roles, and they can often sit on the fence when it comes to making decisions as they try and listen to everyone and keep everyone happy.
Libra women often have quite a bit of debt to their name, as they believe in investing in the things that they need, and want, in the here and now. They often overextend themselves in their desire not to miss out on anything.
Libra Woman in Love & Relationships
Libra women are those stereotypical women from the movies that are depressed and desperate when they are not in a relationship. They cannot stand being alone and every break up is the end of the world. To be fair, breakups can be particularly hard on Libra women as they bond quickly not only with their partner, but all their friends and family, so separation includes layers of loss.
Libra women have no problems meeting potential partners with their outgoing and open nature. They are also very good at adapting themselves to what their partner needs. They need to be careful to hold onto who they are with every new relationship.
Sexuality & in Bed
Libra women very much aim to please when it comes to the bedroom, and they don’t like to say no, so find themselves being very adventurous as they explore their partner’s fantasies.
Attracting a Libra Woman
Libra women don’t like to play safe or go slow. They are pleased when their partner is happy to show them their full affection and don’t mind some over the top romantic gestures. Aside from that, they are seeking someone that they admire, and maybe that possesses qualities that they wish they had more of themselves. They want someone who is what they aspire to be.
Libra women are most compatible with Aries and Sagittarius. Aries is ambitious and aware of their own needs, both qualities that Libra struggles with, so she finds this innately attractive. Sagittarius is a social beast, just like Libra, so they will fit into each other’s lives perfectly. While Libra may at first find Sagittarius’ hands-off approach to relationships frustrating, they will actually thrive as they are given the space to explore themselves.
