For those who believe in it, astrology can be a powerful tool for introspection and self-knowledge — or you can use it to talk shit about your ex and obsess over your crush. Journey with us as we do both, and then head to the comments to live your truth.

I love Libras as friends but I could never date one because they’re obsessed with partnership and very indecisive! I just know it would end badly and I’m already stressed about it because of all the processing that would inevitably have to happen!

All I have to say about dating Libras can be summed up by this conversation with one of my best friends who is a Libra:
Me: The problem is like this has worked for me. In romance and friends. The people who are difficult at first do end up being the people I like most…
Friend: Aren’t most people difficult at first? Maybe not. Maybe I’m just difficult at first lol
Me: Yes you were and you’re my favorite. Case in point.

A Libra once said “why do you whistle so much” and when I said I thought it was less annoying than singing, said Libra said “it’s not.” Whoever said Libras get along with everyone is lying. I wanna fight 99% of Libras I’ve ever met. ALSO: MAKE A DAMN DECISION!!!!!!!!! I cannot go on a date with a Libra without giving them the menu to where we’re eating at least five hours in advance and EVEN THEN!

A Libra is the kind of girl who makes you show up to all of her events in an Outfit, and she herself is several hours late but arrives caked in sequins. She is friends with everyone in the room and sometimes leaves you by yourself while she shakes hands and kisses babies, the true mayor of every party. Can you tell I’ve dated a Libra? My last Libra conquest is one of my best friends and I love her but I do simply not own enough costumes to date her.

Libras are often into museums and art and food and nice things – not in an over-the-top performative sort of way, but in a steady sort of way.

Positive: L O L. They’re…pretty?
Negative: Passive aggressive af. Their indecisiveness is not the problem, but the lack of responsibility or acknowledgement of the consequences of it is. They love to be a victim and a martyr, cannot handle not being liked or approved by everyone which… I don’t need to tell you all the ways that’s unhealthy. They have a similar communication style to Gemini, meaning every little thing is a big thing and every big thing is a little thing — but Gemini at least owns it. I think Libras like to pretend they’re a Virgo about their communication which… somehow makes it worse. Sex is whatever because they’re more interested in the idea of sex than the actual sex they’re having in the moment, also I’m sorry hobbies and interests don’t invent a personality.

I’m terrified of Libras. I had a Libra who broke my heart because she could not bring herself to have real conversations about difficult things and then did very hurtful shit. They seem so sweet. What’s going on there?
