A likable, obliging Libra personality is a true complement to a magnetic Aquarius ego. If we give Aquarius’ good-attitude, “Gee, I kinda like that guy,” friendly side some polite Likable Libra social skills, we get the most congenial, easy-to-work-with diplomats on the planet. They love interaction, and they’re a joy to be around. And they’re much more open-minded and willing to consider what they don’t agree with or understand easily than most other Aquarians. If Aquarians with Libra rising avoid the argumentative, disagreeable side of their tightly-wound Aquarian ego—and that shouldn’t be too difficult here—their popularity grows by leaps and bounds. They’re always in good favor with friends and coworkers—and even children like them! These people are sometimes so magical with kids that the neighborhood children think of them as their favorite adults. They’re amiable and upbeat and innately able to put kids at ease. There’s usually a warmth here that’s not always present with Aquarius. Also, in professional or financial situations, Libra’s willingness to “wait and see” gives them diplomacy and more time to consider their options before committing themselves to one direction or the other.
But always trying to please everyone as Libra often does can get them trapped into becoming the neighborhood taxi service or the granddaughter’s full-time babysitter, too. It’s important for these Aquarians to slow down and stay centered when other people’s demands become unreasonable. Aquarians with Libra rising are always doing for others, and neighbors, co-workers, and family members sometimes take them for granted. They often have trouble saying “no,” and if they’re not careful they’ll run themselves ragged doing nice, obliging things for everyone but themselves. They owe it to themselves to let other people handle their own problems once in awhile. Going overboard with obligation isn’t the worst fault in the world, but it can sometimes create an overly concerned meddler.
