Libra is the only sign of the zodiac that is represented by an inanimate object, rather than an animal or human. While this can mean that you live  your life to an ideal standard, you need to allow yourself to be fallible and human; it is okay to make mistakes!

Libra is the universal sign of partnership; you feel incomplete without someone to call your own. You are drawn to group activities with friends, placing a high value on mental rapport. You also have an excellent intuition about others. However, be careful: you also apt to prematurely dash into commitment when infatuation is mistaken for love.

You take comfort in balance, and strive for middle ground in all aspects of your life. You value the cooperation of others, but can also be a master strategist if need be. Along with the scales comes an indecisiveness: both options will always look enticing. This can be both an asset and an drawback; be sure to avoid challenges by making decisions when they need to be made.

Your people skills will aid you in just about any profession, especially those that involve working with the public. You deal well with clients, customers, and even co-workers. That said, your loyalty also has the propensity to keep you in a job long after you should have moved on. There is potential for wealth and a pleasant retirement, but be sure to budget wisely—you have an eye for the finer things in life, and these can take you off your monetary track.
