How to Make a Libra Woman Happy

Is a Libra woman right for you? How do you make a Libra woman happy?

If you follow astrology, you may hear some misleading match-up advice. Maybe you’ve heard that you should “never” date a Libra. The truth is you can make it work with any zodiac sign. Your so-called imperfect match could become your life partner if you take a chance.

Astrology is a helpful tool for “decoding” people. No matter what you believe, it’s always helpful to have another tool in your romantic arsenal.

So if you’re interested in a Libra, how do you make a Libra woman happy—and find yourself happy with a Libra woman?

The Libra woman

Gentle Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty and love. Perhaps that explains her smooth talk and pretty face. Like Taurus, which is also Venus-ruled, the Libra woman loves to be surrounded by art, culture and beauty in a soft, harmonious environment.

The Libra woman loves good food and expensive things. Lovely Libra knows how to charm but behind her dimples and sweet personality, she’s a fighter. Libra is the sign of the scales, and she can’t stand anything that’s unfair or unbalanced. She loves a designer outfit as much as she adores a good debate. She’ll stand up for justice, in style.

Libra women hate to be rushed–they prefer that everything happen their way, on their time. If that means you’re ten hours late, so be it. Libra women are social butterflies who loves to be surrounded by people in a beautiful setting, talking and hanging out for hours. Just remember to save some time for yourself. Libras can get so caught up in the moment, they forget to handle their own responsibilities.

Libra is the seventh of the 12 zodiac signs, which begins its cycle in early fall every year during Libra season—which falls around September 23-October 22.

Is the Libra woman your “dream girl?”

The Libra woman epitomizes balance and fairness. Her sign’s influence helps restore equilibrium to all affairs, no matter how big or small. From settling a major legal or ethical conflict to determining the best place to hang a painting, Libra energy will stop at nothing to establish interpersonal and aesthetic consonance.

The essence of a Libra woman’s energy is charming, lovable, fair, sincere, sharing, beautiful and hopelessly romantic. Negative expressions of Libra energy can be vain, indecisive, melodramatic, manipulative, spoiled and delusional.

Peace, love, and harmony is the Libra woman’s M.O.

How to spot a Libra woman

You’ll instantly be swept away by a Libra woman’s charm and pleasant demeanor, enchanted by her stimulating conversation topics. Libra women are the perfect partners for a social justice project, interior design masterpiece, or even just a peaceful day picnicking in the park and strolling around the town.

Set one of these social butterflies free at a networking event and they’ll own the room. Some Libra women can be reserved and formal at first. But once you get her talking, a five-minute conversation can morph into a three-hour philosophical discourse.

Because Libra women naturally seek compromise, this sign dislikes conflict and anything that feels “unfair.” If you meet an angry Libra, chances are she is riled up about an ongoing injustice. Her system simply can’t tolerate it!

Many Libras women are natural diplomats who will do everything to negotiate between warring parties that can’t get along. They can accurately see both sides to a situation, and often resolve disputes in an equitable way for all involved.

However, there is a population of Libras whose Venusian appetites rule them, eclipsing their sign’s sensibility and driving them to pursue material indulgence at any cost. These Librans use their natural charms and good looks to manipulate others into taking care of them or doing their bidding. As the sign of the Judge, some Libras can even tip the scales into dictatorial behavior and power trips (a “my way or the highway” attitude). When it comes to their own decision-making, Libra women can have an even harder time.

You will find a Libra woman taking in culture at a gallery opening, indulging in a sweet treat or gourmet health food, or shopping for a couture or hand-crafted piece to add to her impressive wardrobe.

The “natural habitat” for a Libra woman

A networking mixer, befriending strangers at a bar, dancing at a club, at stadium watching a sporting event or concert, organizing something at home or at the office, shopping for some trendy clothing, ambling through a gallery or museum, philosophizing about life at a coffee shop, wooing anyone with her charm, offering a sharp opinion or pointed advice, helping out a friend with a ride, choosing some big-ticket item or taking them along to a new favorite restaurant.

What a Libra woman does for a living

Libra women are consummate networkers. They are great collaborators who are often the most fair and diplomatic co-workers and bosses. The Libra woman is also sensitive to her work space aesthetics, and will make a pleasing environment for all to enjoy while working. She is also an excellent teacher of unparalleled patience.

Some career and job choices that are suitable to most Libra women include: court judge, interior decorator, publicist, ombudsman, mediator, marketing director, customer service representative, graphic artist, web developer, brand marketer.

What a Libra woman wants in a partner

The Libra woman thrives on human interaction. She is looking for a partner who will provide intellectual stimulation and it doesn’t hurt if you look good doing it. The Libra woman may seem indecisive, but she’s clear about what she wants in a partner, and that is for someone who possesses beauty, truth, and justice. She wants to be captivated by your radiance and your honesty.

Flirting with a Libra woman, “romantic stuff”

A Libra woman is in love with being in love. Life must be beautiful around a Libra woman. If it isn’t, she’ll be the first to notice, and to comment!

Flirting & dating and your first date

The Libra woman wants to put you on a pedestal, so presenting your best first impression is important, but she equally puts importance on honesty, so no need to brag.

Libra is the sign of the judge, so she subjects prospective dates to a lengthy evaluation before committing—that includes flirting! Libra craves pace, so if you’re willing to put in the investment of your time, she will make it worthwhile (if she deems you worthy!).

The Libra woman is a thoughtful planner, so let her in on your plan or decide it together. A good first date could be a wine bar, restaurant, museum, concert, or anywhere you can be a little upscale or decadent feeling.

Sex with a Libra woman

She’ll rub and caress you, love you tender and kiss you slowly for hours. The Libra woman might even seduce you with a skillful massage.

Some Libras are a little free-loving and maybe be open to unconventional love-making arrangements. The Libra woman loves beatify and has a voyeuristic side, she may be up for a nude painting, photos or recording a romp. She also likes to dress up, something lacy and racy perhaps.

Some Libras may seem buttoned-up during the day, but take on a different persona at night.

A Libra woman’s turn-ons and turn-offs

If you want to keep a Libra woman happy, it is helpful to know here turn-ons and turn-offs!

Libra woman turn-ons: being well-balanced and well tempered, sharing taste in music, books and art, playing up your natural beauty, calling her on her s*it while sparing her dignity, spoiling her in bed, embracing her diva side, listening to her wax philosophical for hours

Libra woman turn-offs: rushing or pressuring her to make a decision, having bad manners or hygiene (or bad taste), talking loudly or obnoxiously, being too showy, clashing with family, being overly practical, scoffing at romance or killing a mood, being rude or indifferent to those in need

Dating a Libra long-term

She loves you, she loves you not. With a Libra woman, your relationship can feel like a swinging pendulum. At some point it will settle, but what a ride it may be to get to that point. Can’t she make up her mind? (Not easily.) Patience is key when dating a Libra but once you’ve established trust, you’re pretty much locked in.

The Libra woman craves her an interdependent, equally balanced relationship. She doesn’t want a needy partner, she has enough to take care of, taking care of herself! Anything too extreme throws off the Libra woman. She can turn into a grouch or even a tyrant. She needs to retreat and refresh and it’s important to give her the space to do that, or the partnership will not last. The right relationship can be a great space for sharing love and harmony (and diplomacy) but don’t rush her.

If she… 

Gets quiet, she might be brooding and need to decompress. Give her her space!

Doesn’t call, she’s probably lost track of time. Call her!

Calls a lot, she admires your intelligence and opinions, and probably enjoys talking to you.

Doesn’t make a move after a couple of dates, it’s nothing to worry about. She’s not in a rush. Give it a few more dates before you start wondering if she’s into you.

Doesn’t make a move after a few weeks, she may have some hesitation about your compatibility. She likes courtship and if you’re thinking things are moving too slowly, just ask her. Better to find out where her heart is than to wonder.

Moves fast, she’s horny and not thinking about anything serious. Enjoy a fling or slow things down.

Gives you gifts, it’s business as usual for a Libra. She does it for everyone. Let her treat you (she’ll insist anyway), but don’t take advantage.

Introduces you to her family and/or friends, you’ve made it to the semifinals. Now, you have to pass their test.
