Gift Ideas for the Libra in Your Life

Summer is transitioning away and the autumn wind of the Libra is coming in strong! Libras are trolling around, preparing for spooky season and making sure that everyone is getting an even helping of halloween treats. If you’re looking for a special treat for your Libra look no further!

Libras are emotional, sociable, charming, and fair that strive for equality and justice in all things. Your Libra could be an emotional empath or a gossiping social butterfly!

Either way, we have a ton of awesome artistic gift options for your Libras.

What Type of Sign is A Libra?

Born from September 23rd to  October 22, Libras are the only sign symbolized by a non-living item: a scale. Described as artistic, impatient, and diplomatic, Libras focus their mental and physical energy into making sure every situation is balanced and fair.

Associated with Venus, Libras are loving, fair, and rational. Due to their fair and just natures, Libras often take nurturing vocations such as guidance counselors, mediators, designers, and stylists.

Air signs, which also include Gemini and Aquarius, are commonly associated with:

  • Intelligent
  • Sociable
  • Communicative
  • Empathetic
  • Balanced
  • Funny

Governed by Venus, Libras are the only air sign ruled by the planet of love, beauty, and money. Libras love to get involved with everyone and every situation. Some call them nosy, I prefer to describe them as deeply emotionally invested in their loved ones. Libras want to fix conflicts because they can see all the beautiful possible endings! Who doesn’t love a romantic?

What Are The Characteristics of A Libra?

Ever the scales, Libras are charming social butterflies that are constantly striving towards fairness and balance. Cooperative and diplomatic, Libras much prefer to be the ones fixing the drama and not the one the aggression is pointed towards. Call them flighty or fearful, but Libra’s intentions are always good!

Obsessed with beauty, equality, and anything aesthetically pleasing, Libras always know how important matters of the heart are. Known for their intellectualism and sophisticated style, Libras can sometimes be a little self indulgent but they deserve a little spoiling…..sometimes.

Best Gifts For A Libra

The Libra Color Palette

  • Powder Pink (soft, delicate peaches and beachy pinks that match the romantic Venus energy)
  • Cloudy Purples (smoky clouds of periwinkle will help balance and sooth your Libra)
  • Tea Green (soothing pastel shades of greens will help convey natural stability and security)

Libra Birthstones

  • Peridot
  • Rainbow Moonstone
  • Lapis Lazuli

A powerful crystal used for activating the mind, Libras will get a ton of use out of lapis lazuli. Promoting wisdom, creativity, and learning, this crystal will help your Libra clarify their many thoughts and keep them focused on one obsession at a time.

Rainbow moonstone helps stimulate creativity, something that Libras have in abundance. This crystal works to harmonize and bring about new beginnings by syncing up with lunar energy and rhythms and we all know how Libras feel about harmony.

A glowing soft green, peridot may seem like an unlikely crystal in your Libra’s arsenal, but it is crucial. Associated with prosperity and good fortune, peridot was used by the ancient Egyptians to ward off nightmares. If you’re fixing conflicts as often as Libras are….you’re gonna want a little bit of good fortune!

Before you go off on your shopping spree, I have a few more tips that might help tip the scale on what you should get for them. Libras love harmony and gentleness - think of anything soft and romantic. They dislike violence, injustice, and conforming. These amazing judges want someone to show that they care about them and their many obsessions.
