Being a Libra, I never truly understood why Libras are so hated, when we’re one of the nicest, kindest signs on the zodiac wheel. A Libra will give you the shirt off of their back, if you needed it. Libras will defend the people they love to death and will help you in anyway possible if you ask.
We follow the golden rule, “Do unto others…” to the 10th power, as we truly believe in karma. So, why are we categorized with some of the most hated signs out there? Like Gemini, who is considered the two-faced and untrustworthy one, or Aries the fiery, manipulative asshole or even the cry-baby, pity me cancers or the dangerous, vindictive Scorpios?
Are Libras hated or just hated on?
This is the REAL question, are Libras hated or just hated on? After numerous posts in the Libra Gang Facebook Group asking this same question, I’ve come to realize it’s more about the latter! Of all twelve zodiac signs, those born between September 21 and October 22 may not be the most hated but definitely has the most “haters” of the zodiac signs!
1. Libras are Super Talented
I don’t know if Venus in her ultimate wisdom bestowed Libras with all these gifts and talents as a blessing or a curse, but as a Libra, anything you put your mind to, you usually accomplish. Your ideas are out of the box and visionary, everything you try your hand at works and is prosperous. The only way a you as a Libra will fail is if you never try or you just stay in “lazy, I don’t care” mode.
This is where the hate from others usually come in, just think about it for a second, wouldn’t you hate on someone who is always good or better than you at everything? It may start out as admiration then turn into pure jealousy and this leaves Libra perplexed and trying to figure out what happened.
2. Libras Are Nice To A Fault
Being extremely nice usually backfires on us Libras. As Libras, we get into the habit of making sure other people are always happy and comfortable, usually at the expense of ourselves. What do I mean? People get so used to us bending backwards for them, always saying yes, always the one checking in, calling, gifting, taking the responsibility, that this sometimes leads to us Libras being taken advantage of.
This is when Libras will take a step back and think, “Hold on, I get nothing out of this relationship, they put no effort, or what have they done for me lately?” We were good knowing we made the other person happy but when the realization of the lack of reciprocation kicks in, this is when a Libra will become selfish and stop putting you first. Then we automatically become the villain and the problem, with the other person usually forgetting everything we’ve ever done for them, leaving us feeling slighted and them hating on us after the fact.
3. Libras Will Always Tell The Truth
A Libra will say what others are afraid to say. As Libras we usually mean what we say and say what we mean. So, warning! Don’t ever ask a Libra something you don’t really want to know the truth about. Especially, if you’re just some random person we don’t care much for…Libras will blurt facts, tell all truths and cover up NOTHING! Please don’t let it be an argument, because we will crush your last hope for humanity, hit your ego where it hurts and leave you wondering about your whole existence if you try us.
If we do love and care about you, we will still tell you the truth without being as blunt but you’re still going to get all the facts and tough love with us. We will just throw in an added hug, add a “LOL” to the end of the email or text, treat you to lunch and/or buy you a drink to help you deal with what just happened. A Libra really doesn’t see it as anything other than being truthful and that’s a good thing to be right? Right?!
4. Libras just have that “Je Ne Sais Quoi”
Libras are so intriguing that many zodiac signs find our looks and personality irresistible. As a Libra, we are truly beautiful both inside and out, even the Libra who may not think that they’re attractive has an allure that is truly captivating to say the least. When it comes to us being one of the Venus-ruled zodiac signs, no matter where we go, everyone just seems to notice us and makes sure that we know they did notice too.
So naturally, this will bring out the green eyed monster in others around us. You’re basically the Beyonce of the crew, and they know it and they also know they can’t do anything about it but try to discredit you, drag your name through the mud, get other people to hate on you too, make you feel bad about yourself etc., and I know if you’re a Libra you’ve felt every word because you’ve had to walk through this kind of fire, clueless and wondering about what you did, when it was all because you are special and they can see it, even when you can’t or won’t. IYKYK!
5. Libras Are So Unbothered
As a Libra myself, I understand our chill, laid-back nature. If it doesn’t concern us, we mind our business and even if it does concern a Libra, unless it’s an over the top situation, we just smirk or smile and keep it moving. This seems to bother the other signs of the zodiac sometimes, so much, that they will intentionally try to push our buttons or try to get us riled up, thinking that we’re soft or weak.
This is a BIG mistake, because as a Libra we want to avoid confrontation for a reason, we want to avoid problems, because WE CAN BECOME THE PROBLEM. A Libra’s rage is not a pretty site and once unleashed won’t be a easy to quash or calm down. Just RUN, because we will literally finish the war you started for our justice, for our personal vengeance and it won’t be over until we feel like you truly understand that you shouldn’t have fucked with us in the first place! “Don’t start nothing won’t be nothing!”
