Am I A True Libra?

true libra
I thought this would be a fun post about whether or not I live up to being a true Libra according to and what they suppose my strengths are weaknesses are and who I am in a nutshell.

Side note: I don’t necessarily believe in astrology and star signs but I thought this would be fun and I would love to see other people do it too!

01 Strengths

  1. Diplomatic
  2. Graceful
  3. Peaceful
  4. Idealistic
  5. Hospitable

In terms of being diplomatic, I think I can be sensitive when dealing with others in terms of putting myself in their shoes but if I am passionate about something I will definitely take sides. Even though I am supposed to be the balancing scales of the star signs!
Oh my gosh am I not graceful. I always wanted to be a ballet dancer but I am essentially a bumbling, clumsy idiot! I definitely adapt some of my actions and speech in different environments to suit more civilized situations but it doesn’t come naturally that’s for sure!
If I asked my boyfriend if I was calm, I think he would laugh in my face. I am a redhead so as much as I like peace in terms of global ideals, I am not a peaceful person. I think graceful, diplomatic and peaceful all go hand-in-hand so it’s a bit of fail for me.
I am definitely concerned with my personal growth and I’m passionate about striving for big goals in the world and making a difference. I am also a perfectionist which I think factors in slightly to being idealistic too.
Finally, I am 100% hospitable. I am basically Monica in FRIENDS who also wants to be the host. I used to be mocked at house parties because I would want to cater for everything and make sure everyone is happy. I used to make veggie and normal jelly shots, label everything, have everyone’s favourite food available and the WIFI password on display. My friends used to love switching labels around to wind me up!

02 Weaknesses

  1. Superficial
  2. Vain
  3. Indecisive
  4. Unreliable

As soon as I saw indecisive I knew that it was 100% right. I hate making decisions when it involves other people because I am always worried about picking something they don’t want to do or to eat etc.
, however, couldn’t be more untrue (well I hope so anyway!). Being reliable is actually something I really strive to be. I know everyone can fall short of these things now and then but I’m pretty sure a lot of people would deem me so.
I think people always take vain as being a really negative word but I think it is just a factor of life nowadays. I mean, nearly everyone is concerned with their appearance, qualities and achievements and I would be lying if I said it didn’t concern me at all!
I don’t think I am superficial though. I think we all make little judgments on shallow aspects of life. For example, most people judge the appearance of their partner before they got to know them because they obviously didn’t know their personality beforehand! However, personality and other deeper things are really important to me. So, I think I am a normal amount of superficial.

03 Libra In A Nutshell

“Libras are the diplomat of the zodiac. They always want to make things right and have balance in their life and surroundings. They have charm, elegant taste and they are easy to like due to their eager-to-please nature. In return for a Libra’s ability to be a good listener, they expect admiration for the people they have brought together. Libras are intelligent but are often overlooked. They express their intelligence through creativity. When others see a Libras interests and hobbies, their intelligence and creativity is obvious. Libras love variety and welcome change. Libras love luxury. They will spend lots of money and surround themselves with beautiful things and they seem to be constantly fussing over their appearance. Libras work hard to please others.”

As we already established, I suck at being a diplomat and being elegant and charming! However, I definitely try and be a good listener because I think it so important in our relationships. I don’t have very many hobbies or interests and I wouldn’t deem myself creative – my mum is definitely more suited to that! I definitely appreciate luxury but I am not one to spend my money on it really because my tastes are constantly changing. I also agree that I work hard to please others – I would 100% catergorise myself as that person!

I would love to know what you thought of this and have a go at it yourself! The website I used is mentioned at the top if you want to have a look.

    This is such a cool idea. I dont really believe in horoscopes or star signs either, but this looks like fun. I’d love to see if I’m a true Sagittarius 😄😄

    • April 18, 2017 / 1:48 pm

      Thank you darling! I often read them if they’re in a magazine or paper to hand, really. Oh a Pisces! That would be so interesting xxx

      • April 18, 2017 / 6:02 pm

        I know and I was born super early so not even meant to be a Pisces! xxx

    This was such an interesting discussion piece … I’ve always thought I was a kind of hit and miss cancer, not really sure if I live up to my star sign!

      Thank you so much for stopping by! It’s kind of interesting to see isn’t it xxx

    Great post! You sound like a fairly authentic Libra – my oldest son is Libra while my younger son and I are both Cancer…over-emotional, over-sensitive, no sense of humour, clingy, stubborn,…we have the most charming character traits! 🙂 xxx

    • April 20, 2017 / 11:06 pm

      Well for starters, your humour is fantastic! Very few posts crack me up like yours. Do I really? Is your eldest a typical Libra too? xxx

      • April 21, 2017 / 7:19 am

        Ah thank you 🙂 I’m glad you appreciate my humour, an obvious good point about Libra is their intelligence! My oldest son is quite clumsy..but he’s also very laid back, infuriatingly so sometimes! Apparently though, the actual time you were born can have an effect on personality traits too…:) xxx

        • April 21, 2017 / 10:59 am

          Ah well that’s good! So laid back he’s horizontal (my favourite saying haha!)? Really? That’s so interesting! I will have to look that up and see. I was born at 22:22 which I think is quite cool xxx

          • April 21, 2017 / 9:27 pm

            My mother told me I was born just in time for tea…my favourite drink ever since! 🙂 xxx

          • April 23, 2017 / 1:06 pm

            Hahaha, that’s brilliant! I was 16 days late so I doubt my mother had too many happy words to say haha xxx

    I never believed in signs, but recently a friend of mine pointed out so many common features for our acquaintances with same signs, i kinda got convinced.
    Great post!

    • April 21, 2017 / 6:18 pm

      Ah that’s so cool! What star sign are you? Thank you! xxx

      • April 22, 2017 / 12:09 am
