How to spot the Libra employee? Generally looking gorgeous at the coffee shop tapping their manicured fingernails considering the big questions of the day- latte or cappuccino? Libra is rarely spotted on its own in the wild & prefers to travel in pairs, but is equally at ease in social groups of all sizes. With a love of balance and beauty, Libra finds conflicts distasteful, pointless and unattractive; so will tend to avoid wherever possible- usually by way of a perfectly timed exit stage right. If a conflict can’t be avoided, efforts will be made to broker a peace deal- or have someone else attend to the dirty work.
Both the males and the females of the species will be impeccably turned out from the perfectly applied make-up to their designer clad feet- and all stops in between. Ties and cufflinks look quietly expensive- even if they are just knock-offs from Kowloon Night Markets (not that you would ever know...).
OK, this is flippant, but the truth is, I have always been just a little envious of Libra- especially Libra Rising women. They have always seemed to have a grace and a diplomacy that is absolutely noticed where I seem to clunk through life. More importantly, Libra is the model of self control, good taste and balance.
Libra employees are great networkers and work well in a team. Libra knows that she is works at her best and her hardest when collaborating with other people, exchanging ideas and bringing people together. She has a talent for working with people where a mutual benefit is gained- he may make her look extra good and she highlights his strengths. Together they are greater than the sum of their individual parts.
Libra does not do solo well at all and will not survive in an office with a dwindling population or a strong work from home policy. She likes her office space to look pleasing and tasteful- even if it is a tiny pod. The ability to socialise and operate within a pleasant atmosphere are deal breakers for Libra.
From a motivational viewpoint, Libra responds well to money especially where it will add to the quality of her life- balancing business and pleasure can be a major challenge. She loves beautiful things and is quite prepared to work for what she gets.
Decision making is Libras biggest issue. There is always one more little piece of information which Libra needs to consider before she can be sure she has made the right decision. Whilst these periods of down time help to balance the intensity of other times (Libra does tend to work in bursts of activity), the indecision can be frustrating to other members on the team who just want to get on with it.
Libra finds conflict completely distasteful and will do her best to avoid it be smoothing ruffled feathers. At her absolute best, she has the diplomatic grace to turn conflict into an opportunity for a sale or a mutually good outcome. At her worst she will go as far as backing down in an argument if she needs to, but also has a reputation (not entirely undeserved) of having others engage in the battle for her. She comes out smelling of roses and having achieved her goal, whilst the animosity is directed elsewhere. Problem solved. Peace restored. Teamwork at its best.
