Libra Charm School

Filed in LIBRA

Seventies psychedelic fashion illustrationLibrans, to distract you from the hefty Saturn transit you are embarking upon, please share the secrets of your charm?

Is it your mastery of the art of euphemism? “You look well” instead of “wow, you’ve porked up” when someone has gained weight.

Your fastidious grooming and that you always smell beautiful?  Stealth scent warfare is not to be disregarded as a tactic.

The renowned desire to balance everything out, so that you never seem strident nor coarse during heated discussions re religion or politics?

Some secret art that you practice, like an ancient Japanese ritual or reading Rumi a lot?

Sucking up to everyone relentlessly, regardless of who they are or their status in your life?

Power-flirting done nearly to porn classic prequel standard but without managing to come across psycho-stalkery?

Please share. And if you are not a Libran, you may share what you deem to be the charm-school techniques of a fave (or not so fave but still annoyingly charming Libran of your acquaintance.

oh wow, Librans are copping a hammering here so I have to put in a good word for ’em, on-topic [i.e. libran charm school secrets]. imho the trickier librans have influences from other signs, particularly scorp [only thinking of the libran scorpio frenemy here and one other]. the Wonderful Librans seem to do the following to good effect: Attend to their friendships, and make an effort to keep in touch Listen attentively Are calm and balanced when they talk about their/others issues, ALWAYS give good relationship advice [as a relationship-challenged psices, I can’t put a price on this] Beautiful smile… Read more »

that is not to say that scorp influences are always bad btw! I love my scorps. where I a mcoming from is that if there are self-esteem issues, or the person seems to show the low traits of each / both sign, or hey they even choose to use their powers for evil not good (where I believe that libran people skills and scorp insight can be a troubling combination), then there can be ..issues perhaps

That’s not to say, that the double Cappy I dated many years ago with Libra Mars was not an incureable flirt and that he told me he did so because he was insecure. (Well, we can’t gush ALL DAY, now can we…and besides my Ariesness is getting jealous….hehe..joke)

Yes, Libra is a “bland” flavour. I am far more sarcastic and direct than some of the more charming born Scales members thanks to Scorp Moon & Mercury with a Saggo Rising. While I dislike conflict, I have no trouble “lancing a boil” if it will make the conflict resolve ultimately.

I always wear perfume, I wear dresses when possible, and I smile when I feel like screaming. I also always find something to compliment. I understand why people think that’s insincere, but we really are finding something genuine to admire even if we think you’re horrid. It’s not insincere to think someone is a stupid troll but acknowledge and say to them that they have lovely taste in footwear and a fine memory for anniversaries and birthdates. 🙂

SO with you there – there is good in everyone, there’s plenty of peeps out there focussing on the negative, I see no point in dwelling there – accentuate the positive – see the sunny side is pretty much my MO but important to be realistic about how the negative stacks up against it which is def sometimes hard for libra fleur.

Nothing wrong with politeness and friendliness whilst going about one’s business. I’m not a Libran, but for me “what you give out comes back atcha” .. it’s so much easier and more pleasant to smile, say hi how are you and so forth in general situations. Plus on a practical level, even if it’s a superficial situation .. it’s still an energetic exchange .. and we have hundreds of these occur over the average week. So why not take advantage of the opportunity to give a bit of goodness and then in turn receive a mini-burst back? In that regard… Read more »

Reading this discussion has certainly facilitated my self-esteem – not. I vote that we all drop diplomacy and go for the ‘Look – I think you’re a total fuckwit’ approach in every social situation. There will be less wars as a result of this new ‘Fuck-you’ strategy of course. And if there are more wars.. well there’s nothing more cleansing than an apocalypse right? And I think everyone should transit from having sex / relationships with partners to wholesale psychotic to the death terror because said sex / relationship has finished. Friendship with someone you’ve known intimately is ridiculously over-rated.… Read more »

And something that I want to add, is that for all the low traits of Aries, with Saturn so prominant in my chart, I can’t get away with low (but briefly). Saturn won’t let me. What a waste of a life as an Aries. Can’t even be an a-hole without it reminding me, “no-no, careful now, KARMA!! But in the end, a godsend I guess and a good teacher.

I know what you mean Sweetpea, interesting how the prominence of certain planets (like Saturn and your moon in Cap) can colour one’s chart. Some peeps don’t seem to fit the stereotypical mould of their sign.
I have natal Saturn square mars and Saturn square Mercury – Saturn’s always whispering in my ear. The chance of me ever becoming an alcoholic, drug-addict or obese is pretty slim. “Saturn won’t let me”!!! Love it!

I just remembered that the man who gave me one of my first jobs was a Libran, as was his wife. (This was in the USA – he is Californian; she Texan, and a truly terrifying cyclone of nevous energy manifesting as ‘southern hospitality’.) He was a brilliant entrepreneur, built up a very prosperous wine importing business from scratch and quite quickly. It all turned to shit very quickly, as well. One of the most charismatic people I’ve ever met, he was also one of the most manipulative and avaricious. His gift was his ability to inspire trust, and his… Read more »

What I’ve thought about my Libran brother postmod (and his many marriages), is that besides needing to be partnered (as so many males just HAVE to be it seems or they feel adrift without someone admiring them) is that he did his processing through each marriage instead of going to counseling between marriages. Gee but that’s alot of turmoil and angst.

My ex – the intense Libran (venus in scorpio & other notable scorp in his chart) – was exceedingly charismatic. Very handsome. A very attentive listener, used to stand quite close to people (personal space ignored?) & smile, laugh, listen intently. He used to be so socially engaged in this way, & especially with pretty women, used to forget to introduce me, or even acknowledge that I was standing right next to him. Infuriating. A very larger-than-life character with good “manners” when he wasn’t feeling rebellious – (except introducing his gf!!), and he did have time for people from all… Read more »

They do have problems admitting that they have inner demons. My father’s family went through traumatic times when their father died, leaving a family of 7 kids and his wife to look after themselves, and they weren’t very well off to begin with. The Librans in my father’s family, my grandmother, my dad, and an uncle, have trouble acknowledging that this affected them. Who wouldn’t be hit hard by something like that? I mean, the oldest in that family was only thirteen years old and my grandmother never remarried. When I try to confront my grandmother about it, she doesn’t… Read more »

When we were kids should would flutter them at the local butcher(thinking about it now kind of creepy) and he would always give her a frankfurt, I would give the eyelash flutter a go but always looked like i was having a seizure. So her signature eye flutter move is known as “frankfurt eyes”.

One of my fave Mystic phrases is the Libran ‘whim of steel’, which totally describes my Libran housemate described above. This manifests itself in her penchant for moving things around: furniture, vases of flowers, photo frames, my stuff. The funny thing is that she’ll act all casual if I (Leo) point out that the whatever-it-is was more effective/less in the way in its previous location, and let me move it back to wherever it resided originally… then move it back to her preferred new location when I’m not around. There’s been a couple of items which have been swapped back… Read more »

For all this For all that I’ve always been reading in astrology about Libran “charm,” I rarely experience it. In fact, most Librans I know arec complete closed-minded assholes, to put it lightly. I’ve had the Libran (male) cousin who’s said that implants were made for people like me, so women could “look right.” There’s my father, who unapologeticallly believes everyone is a “racist” and never wants to instill good values in his children. There’s my Libran grandmother, who is probably the most charming, but she’s a paranoid fuck who believes everyone should be nice to her if she doesn’t… Read more »

“Then there are all the Libran friends of friends (because, really, I don’t personally know that many Librans) who believe they are the greatest shit and want people to adore them when they have no redeeming qualities whatsoever”

My mum believes that to be true about Librans, she does not get along with them, surprisingly since she is a multi Leo. Thinking it maybe a jealousy thing, those two signs are the most showy, look at me signs right, maybe becuase yes they come off always looking like the good one in anything they do??

My experience with Libran ex (see below) – does reflect a highly opinionated (to the point of being rigid & inflexible & narrow), highly egotistical (yeah, to the point of vying with Leos for that honour) – despite the heavy doses of charm & overall “pleasantness”…..That’s possibly socially true, but they can be so different in private, & with partners

One thing the Libran gal does that has on occassion irriated the hell outta me, is that she will wait in the waiting room in which she could be taking her jewelry off but no, she waits until I do it for her. If you’re going to be getting a massage, wouldn’t you think to take off your jewelry ahead of time?

Feel like her lady in waiting at times and that the attention she needs is a bit high maintenance.

I’m not big into Law of Attraction, but my personal story is that I used to feel the way you do about Librans but about Caps. Part of it was that I only seemed to meet Low-Caps so I always thought they were all cheap, anorexic social stair-climbing gold-diggers.

In spite of Saturn being almost on her Libra Sun she seems far more in control and looks fresher than she did in the last week of the election campaign. She must do Saturn-Girl. She has Gemini Moon too (notice the hands always talking), so the Gem Moon today should be good for negotiations with the independents. Does anyone know her birthtime.

Ah, I thought it was my Leo Venus that gets me flirting.

It disappoints me that a lot of people think that flirting is *always* sexual; it’s not. For example, I’m naturally warmer toward non-human animals so can “flirt” better as in connect better, and was told by my momma that ever since I was little I’d known how to flirt. And apparently get my way. What ever did she mean by that…. *bats eyelids to be beyond obvious*

Question though, if I’ve thrown some ‘honeys’ out in someone’s direction she woulda known I was flirting? And if she gave me ‘honey’ back, that means she was flirting back?

That’s what I always thought was the case but for some reason I’m then told ‘no, I wasn’t into you’ or ‘I wasn’t emotionally attached’.

Maybe I’m just one of those guys that women get all motherly with and they use their ‘honeys’ on me in that way … Guess I’ll never know.

I use terms of endearment a lot. I love them. But not with random strangers. But calling someone darling or love doesn’t mean undying love, or even attraction, it’s care, compassion, affection.

your MC is conjunct my mercury venus conjunction – we have some nice synastry goin on – the shared tendancy to miss planes due of muliti-tasking is no coincidence methinks. So your NN etc are trine your MC or your venus?

Year of the Fox: I love what you say about flirting with everyone. That’s pretty funny. 🙂

Libran counterfeit money guy. Talk about rolling between the sheets with the underworld. He wanted to pay his child support so that is honorable, no? (joking).

He must have had some strong Scorpio too as while having sex he said “isn’t this nasty?” Well, uh yeah…your ding a ling is on my ding a ling….LOLLLLLL

Venus, Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, Sun in Libra. I think that Libra likes to see the good in all people and all situations, so therefore looks until it is found and then works with it. Then it all feels good. Certain Capricorny and firey tipes call this a cop out and say I just don’t want to ruffle feathers and try to pick a fight based purely on that, because they think it is funny to stir what doesn’t like to be stirred. Not every one thrives on peace and balance it can actually annoy them. The other Librans I know… Read more »

Ohhh..my old flatmate – a tradesman, tiler to be precise (immaculate work), was a librian..every friday night before popping down to the local yokel hotel, to catch up with his buddiies, ( frocked up of course) , he would take EVERYTHING out of the bathroom, and bleach it…he would also buy the old school dettol, push a pin through the top, and use it to shower with, every night and morning…and then when he wasnt doing that he was selling (just to friends of course) okey dokey cokey, or party all night long pills … he really was one extreme… Read more »

Oh that’s so intriguing.
You know, we talk of Virgos being neat freaks and obsessives for order, but I really think that a strong Libran energy is always behind Germ-phobia, obsessive-compulsive cleaning and excessive use of disinfectant.
From my observations – A Virgo may get a kick out of tidying, but it takes a Libran to truly SANITISE.

Hm… I’ve been wondering for the past few months about the strange enthusiasm my Libran housemate has for bleach. It’s strange because she is actually pretty lazy about housework – but will experience a sudden surge in energy and bleach every surface in sight.

In her case, I think the predilection towards scented things has backfired since she always buys the most hideously artificially fragranced household goods – detergent, body wash, toilet paper, you name it.

I HATE bleach and anything artificially fragranced.

What are the top best essential oils to wear as a perfume? Neroli? Rose? Patchouli? I want to wean myself off commercial alcohol based parfums…

Go to a place that makes good ones, like perfect potion at melb central (your in melb right?), and try on all the ones till you fond one that smells good!

Libra friend has to manage building project guys and started at only 23 years of age. She felt really comfortable telling people what to do without being ‘blokey’ or dressing down her femininity, which I always admired. She did go spare and surprise the hell out of a surly builder every now and then too, which was also kind of cute.

Venus and Moon v. close to one another in Libra. First rule is to deflect all questions about me and insist on finding out more about the other person before revealing anything of myself (tho this tactic is tinged with Scorpio Ascendant modus operandi). Second rule is to angle conversation as much as possible to find out what common ground exists between me and the other. I have to watch this though, because I imagine some people (e.g., Leos) could care less about what they might have in common with me. Oh, yes, to comment above about never engaging in… Read more »

I have to agree with Sassy, most are just Libr-vain and yes-men but they do get involved when moderating and that’s appreciated.

Aries Moon opposed to Libra Sun is just too much pain for me…

Sun, Mercury, Mars in Libra. I have this innocent aura (Sun conjunct Juno, Moon aspecting Neptune) so people are kind of attracted to me like they would to a cute child and then WHAM! I start talking about anarchism, feminism, theory of chaos, etc and that -somehow- tends to charm them (as if I’ve been told). I think that when they show a layer behind innocent-cute-whishy-washiness it really does for Libras. Libra girls aren’t the prettiest ones (at least not in my opinion) but they do have a nice smile for everyone and they give the impression that they could… Read more »

Think I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve since learned to keep certain things about massage patients to myself as Pisces Sun, Libra Moon will take the info and amp up the charm, thus stealing my people!! (okay maybe only one but he used to tip me $20 bucks. I told her and I’ve never seen him again…except passing in the hallway! lol). She’s a wonderful person tho and a hard little worker.. She came from a resort around here and so did things differently. With our office she started giving each patient a little cup of water as she waited… Read more »

They agree with everyone, even if they dont agree, you will never know about it. I have never seen a Libran in a fight ever

Oh you’re lucky Sassy. My brother, a Libran, Sagg Moon, can go completely ape. One time I had to hide out in my nephew’s bedroom while he and his Scorpio (also Sagg) Moon, wife, hashed it out. Maybe a good measure of that is the Moon tho? He’s been like that tho way before her…He’s been married over ten years now but this is wife #4..

And so this means as well that even if later my Libran granddaughter thinks I’m naff she’ll always tell me how wonderful I am. I’d rather be lied to in her case!!

Sassy

Moon in Sagg is def the explosion. I have always had Libran boyfs’ and ex hubby is Libran, I go off like a fire breathing dragon and they will always agree or sugar coat the way they speak, they never raise their voice ever. Which is infuriating for a firey like me..

LOL, know what you mean. Used to get more mad when the Cancer, Virgo Moon would not fight with me. Got my come-uppance tho one day when I’d pushed him too far and he had a hammer in his hand ready to smash my head…lol

Several years ago I was a bit heavier and she (Libran gd) thought my chubbyness “cute”. That’s gotta be her Libran parts…

And the time (at three years age no less), she told me my hairdo was “hideous”…Thought I was going to fall off my chair laughing. That’s gotta be her Gem rising and as her Sun Venus ruled and her Taurus Moon Venus ruled, she just couldn’t help but call it like she saw it…

One time she came up to me and told me she loved me. My daughter was like, “no Mom, wait!” I was then told how she will start with the love fest in order to get what she wants. Daughter said “Mom, you are being manipulated”….heck, I didn’t care…

Sassy, got that with moon in libra x-hubby. Not one to pick a fight but damn I needed some sort of real (fire,water) emotion! To think I flung a $200 bottle of wine to the left of his head in yr 11 of togetherness to get some real guts response! Would this NOT warrant something.. viscous or otherwise?

I suppose I should mention my leo moon..

Yes we can see all sides but this makes decision making painful at best!

Don’t like confrontation but will always stick up for the minority. My aries rising pipes up if tired of waiting for just action or a decision.

This is because we pick our battles. When we fight, we fight to win with a scorched earth policy since whoever it was that picked the fight clearly let it get that far. (we dislike fighting.) There is no loser sitting around bad-mouthing us, because they know they deserved it…or else…they’ve um…disappeared. yeah. That way we can look like we never fight with our little halos on.

I concur with my learned colleague above…

YES! Scorched earth policy pretty much sums it up – chernobyl.

I’ve experience that a huge amount of times…. I oftan wonder why I end up with so many Libras……It was well past my Saturn return before I realized I ..the Aries…LIKED fighting. I thought I hated it because I was constantly being …”scorched”

But I like the “dissappeared…” That totally cracks me up…..

I like how with Libras, you are half way thru the fight, before you even realize it is one…..

hey sassy, libran here – am happy to disagree and do so on a regular basis – look! I’m doing it now LOL – if I truly do disagree but mostly just don’t see the point. Fights are usually trivial or about something other than what the people THINK they’re fighting about in my experience. Fights are mostly lame. Debates between peeps who are intellectually matched are VERY stimulating tho.

Yes debates!! I forgot to mention that! We <3 being the "Devil's Advocate" too.

And if the fight gets to heated a well timed ‘you are being incredibly distasteful and I won’t engage any further. Let me know when you are ready to rejoin the grown ups with civilised conversation’ works a treat…

Makes my little sister go mental – and when they go mental you can shrug, look around the room and say ‘see? How can anyone have an intelligent conversation with this kind of display?’
