When you’re thinking about your future career options and trajectory, why not consult the traits and realities of your star sign?
After all, it might steer you in the direction of the work destiny tailor-made to suit you and your strengths.
Astrology can also help you reveal weaknesses you may have missed, allowing you to deal with what’s holding you back and open yourself up to new opportunities.
Libra, step this way for some cosmic career advice, and read on…
What are Libra’s career strengths?
An Air sign ruled by Venus, you are all harmony, beauty, diplomacy, pleasure and objectivity. A master of analysis. You are a natural people pleaser and charmer which oils the wheels of your life enormously and things just seem to go and flow your way. This is no accident.
You work for your privileges, you make the lives of others, simply, better and more beautiful. You are a perfectionist and have a great eye for aesthetics. You are clever, sophisticated, tactful, thoughtful, and charismatic. Wherever there is a need for splendid relationship building and management, there’s a need for a Libra person.
Naturally in tune with your surroundings and mindful of others’ feelings and needs, you can fit in anywhere. Sometimes, in fact, maybe too well. Libras can get so good at blending and fitting in that they can forget or lose sight of their own agenda and needs.
All Librans enjoy making things run smoothly, look and feel better, work in a more harmonious and pleasing way. If Instagram made employees, they’d all be Libra!
What are Libra’s weaknesses at work?
The super skill of tact and diplomacy has a double edge in that Librans can be a little obtuse and hard to understand when trying to land a difficult message or negative feedback. Sometimes, some things do not need so much sugar coating. Assertiveness can be a tricky for Librans, and it often needs to be actively worked on.
Librans are not the best at making decisions. Again, the super skill of analysis can lead, swiftly, into overthinking and procrastination. Librans kind of want it all. Once they’ve looked at a situation from all sides they can see all the advantages at stake and then don’t want to forgo any of them. All decisions are sacrifices, in some shape or form, and Librans hate facing into that.
People-pleasing. Librans’ desire for a quiet life, happy and thriving relationships, and being adored and admired (they are ruled by Venus after all) can lead them into losing sight of their own needs and desires, and just serving others. This eventually backfires as kindness does get mistaken for weakness and eventually things will go too far. Librans’ desire for an easy ride often leads to a rougher one down the line when boundaries have to be re-drawn.
Which jobs is Libra best at?
Hospitality is a perfect environment for Librans because they love pleasure, indulgence, fun, and entertainment, have a great eye for aesthetics, and know what it takes to make an event or venue stay popular. They bring all of that natural knowledge and passion to this arena. And will work so hard to be the best!
Anything related to personal aesthetics, such as hair, beauty, fashion or photography and styling. Librans are obsessed with looking good and know just how to play to a person’s strengths and disguise their flaws. Librans have the chat to go along with those sorts of roles too, charming all of their clients and making them feel fantastic.
Law and order. Libra’s tarot talisman is Justice and, indeed, they all experience a genuine interest in matters of crime and punishment, as well as the wider legal and social systems. They are objective, fair-minded, analytical, and intent on fathoming out the best outcome for everyone. They are not fazed by serious and challenging situations (as long as they’re others peoples’!).
Roles which require a great deal of diplomacy, be that in promotion, management, PR, actual political negotiations or policy-making. Librans can land difficult things well (when they’ve had their assertiveness training!) and smooth over divides and conflicts better than any other sign.
What is Libra like as a boss?
Your super powers of tact, diplomacy and charm will make any workplace you manage a happy, peaceful and harmonious one. Librans can sniff out, and address, discord very quickly and will listen to all points of view, seeking a fair resolution.
You might struggle, sometimes, with making the big, tough decisions. Perhaps letting procrastination set in, or listening to other, more forceful, voices around you.
You will prioritise good public relations, a pleasing and comfortable work environment, being recognised and rewarded in the industry and winning things, and gaining the high regard of the people with influence in the relevant category. Outward appearances and aesthetics count.
Will Libra be successful as a business owner?
You are smart, creative, worldly, and able to influence people to almost magical degrees. This gifts you with a strong skill set to set up your own endeavour and be successful.
A partnership or collaboration might be a good bet too as you do enjoy working with others and having someone, with equal responsibility, to bounce ideas and decisions off. Aries and Libra make a great team!
