8 Reasons Why Everyone Should Be Like A Libra

Shared

If you're born between September 22 to October 23, get your party hats on because you should be celebrating.

Why? Because you're a Libra, a member of an elite crowd that is a cut above the rest.

Symbolized as scales (for balance), a Libra is the only zodiac sign represented by an inanimate object, proving that anyone born in its time frame is an incredibly unique individual. They're someone so special it's difficult to describe who they are in just words alone... but that doesn't mean we won't try!

Here's eight qualities a Libra has that should be emulated by everyone.

1. Authentic

Libras are always true to themselves and everyone around them. The age-old saying goes, "don't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep," and this sign follows that message to a T.

They would much rather be hated for being themselves than being loved for someone they're not. They don't crumble under peer pressure or get sucked into groupthink.

2. Creative

A truly creative and artistic soul, Libras have an eye for beauty, whether it be in something or someone. They love anything upscale and classy, but also know how to think outside of the box to have a good time.  

3. Compassionate

As one of the most compassionate zodiac signs, this air sign is a great listener and will offer you a shoulder to cry on. Their sympathetic nature will always come out when you need emotional support, making them extremely reliable friends or partners.

4. Diplomatic

Libras value peace and harmony above all else. As they despise conflict, they know how to get a message across in a calm and peaceful manner. This sign has unique problem solving skills and know how to diffuse any tension or arguments around them.

5. Intellectual

As previously noted, Libras are creative thinkers and love to debate. They favor intellectual conversations and have the ability to think incredibly critically, logically, and rationally. This air sign is at their happiest when they're having a thought-provoking conversation with someone as equally well-versed.

6. Loving

Contrary to popular belief, Libras are very loving individuals. While they can appear cold or detached in relationships, they will move mountains for the ones they love. They tend to put others first, and will be loyal to you through thick and thin.

7. Optimistic

Sometimes it's hard to be optimistic in life, but Libras always see their glass as half full than half empty. They are positive individuals who greatly appreciate kind gestures and are able to find the good in almost everything.

Not only do they believe they can do anything they put their mind to, but they believe you can too.

8. Outgoing

Libras are exceptionally outgoing people. They have a good time anywhere they go, and are able to captivate anyone with their charm and naturally born charisma. They make the best out of all social situations, and can defuse any awkward situation in seconds.
