Libras are great at controlling situations in a way that doesn’t upset or offend anyone. They are natural peacekeepers as well as experts in being tactful and diplomatic. They are intelligent so choose their words carefully and try to find common ground with as many people as possible.
Libras are highly intelligent and among the most intelligent of all of the zodiac signs. This is because of their keen nature to learn. They love to be knowledgeable on everything so always open to new information. You’ll never be bored in a conversation with a libra.
Libras are ruled by Venus, the goddess of love. If you’re in a relationship with Libra, you will always be loved and cared for. They love doing romantic gestures and showing you how much they appreciate you.
Libras have a tendency to be oversensitive in certain situations. This is likely due to their decision making- they take longer to make decisions because they want to think about every possible outcome. Therefore, if they make a wrong decision they keep annoyed at themselves and the outcome. This is why they will appear more upset when they’ve made a bad decision about something.
Libras can come across as very demanding without meaning too. They are natural-born leaders and like to find solutions to all of their problems quickly and efficiently. This can sometimes feel like you’re being demanded by a libra. But in fact, they just want the best for everyone. They want to ensure that everyone works hard to meet their high standards not just for themselves, but for that person too.
Unfortunately, a libra is known to be quite vindictive. They can hold a grudge for a very long time, so keep this in mind before you cross them. If they feel like somebody has wronged them they automatically want to get revenge. They are quick to retaliate against others for perceived insults too.
