Libra Rising


Personality Traits: vivacious, breezy, sophisticated, fair-minded, talkative, leisure-loving.

Body and Style: attractive, graceful, label-conscious, flowing hair, light on your feet.

Rising Signs refer to the bundle of traits that others see, when they meet you for the first time.  It's also how you engage with the world.

Libra has an instinct for making peace, and as a cardinal sign, sometimes that means waging peace.  Libra Rising people are actively involved in either creating harmony, or in upsetting the equilibrium.  I've known quite a few contentious Libra Rising natives, that bring a particular charge to that pursuit of either war or peace in relationshiops. 

With Libra rising, you are socially active, and find it natural to engage one-on-one. This makes it easy for you to meet new people, though you’ll keep many as acquaintances, and few as close friends. You’re sensitive to chaos and disruption, and that’s why you’re choosey about companions. You’ll slip away from a ‘bad scene’ gracefully by keeping things light from the outset. But your Libra love-style may propel you into love, and you may lose and find yourself through heartbreaking times. But this is part of your path of discovering the Self, in the mirror of the other.

You are articulate, and have an instinct for balance. Your easy rapport makes you pleasant to be with, and you may enjoy entertaining as a career. You quickly hone in on the many sides of an issue, weighing pros and cons until the right decision is reached. It’s hard for you to speak definitively until you’ve gone through this process, and that’s why you’re seen as “indecisive.” You gain confidence when you hone this process, and stand behind your decisions.

The instinct for balance can ironically make you provocative, since you’re always prodding to set things right. At times, this comes across as bossy or relentless dissatisfaction. You may have to learn to accept those closest to you. You have an artful eye, as well as a built-in sense of justice. These gifts may lead you into the arts, decorating, fashion, entertainment media, law, social advocacy or politics. You make an impact on those you meet, and know how to work your connections. For you, life can be a win-win situation, and this attitude earns the trust of others.
