The Libra Friend
It's not always easy to figure out how good a friend a Libra can be. Some may find themselves lucky to have one and the others might find it a little bit overwhelming if not unworthy. Like in romantic relationships, each sign will affect how deep the a person's friendship with a Libra can get.
The Libra's element is air. So naturally, they will get along well with Fire signs like Sagittarius, Leo and Aries. Air fuels fire so, together, a Libra and a Sagittarius, for example, can whip up a lot of fun and even mischief. Sags are known as trouble makers, although they do this purely for fun, and a Libra would love experiencing all that thrill. They will also love a Leo's drive and independence as Leo's are born leaders. Libra's take time to decide since they weigh things too carefully and still end up unconvinced by their conclusions. In this regard, a Leo can help a Libra in making decisions.
As for their fellow air signs, Aquarius and Gemini, there could be a lot of friendship potential too. Air signs are social butterflies so they will have a lot of fun going to gatherings and meeting new people. An Aquarius can sometimes be pushy and demanding and a Libra may not like that but, at times, the Libra will need this kind of push especially when they are being indecisive. A Gemini, on the other hand, can be very nonchalant and this is fine with a Libra. The problem is that Geminis can flirt much more than Libras do so they may find themselves competing with each other when it comes to other people's attention.
Air signs have the most difficulty getting along with water signs. Water signs are Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces. These three are the most emotional of all zodiacs. They can be subjective and judgmental and the first impression they get off a person is hard to break. This poses a problem since most people see a Libra as superficial until they get to know them better. Water signs are also clingy so the Libra would shy away from them as they prefer to be distant especially in the beginning. There are times that Libra can be seen as dettached because they don't like committing. They can barely make up their minds deciding on the simplest things so don't expect them to commit to anything big.
Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus are earth signs and these are people who are grounded and practical, two traits that doesn't sit well with a Libra being air signs. Earth signs have a very conventional, if not conservative, view on things. Of all these signs, a Libra will have better luck getting along with a Virgo. Virgos are the most playful of the earth signs. They are more open minded and accepting than a Virgo and a Taurus. A Taurus is the most practical so they won't like a Libras indecisiveness. The Capricorn is a pacifist so they may get along well in terms of being diplomatic in handling issues. They are both dettached too, although in different ways.
Libras can be a great listeners although they can be frustrating asking advince from as they're not very good at decisions. If anything, they are charming, they make good company and their diplomatic side means they always have the right words to say when a friend is down and needs a mood booster.
