What to Read
Michelle Amato is in love with one thing: her career. She has no intention of giving into her family who is obsessed with marriage until she is reunited with the only person she's ever been in love with after 13 years. If there is one sign that's in love with love, it's Libras, and they will get a kick out of this "right person, wrong time" romance novel.
Candice shares her biggest takeaways from her Japanese heritage and guides us through her favorite traditions and practices for cultivating inner strength and living a gracious life. Symbolized by scales, Libras are constantly trying to achieve balance in their life. This book is all about what it means to be balanced in your mind, body, and spirit.
Mia finds out she needs a kidney transplant at the same time a window opens up for her to go back to school and pursue her dreams. But, if she jumps at the opportunity, she will be forced to quit her job, thus losing her medical insurance. That's when her best friend, Noah, proposes the idea of getting married. It doesn't matter what romance trope it is, Libras are suckers for a good love story and this friends-to-lovers story is one you won't be able to put down.

What to Listen to
It’s not typical for air signs to be sucked in by romantics, but Libras are ruled by Venus (AKA, the planet of love), so it checks out. You can count on Libras to have an exciting love life, so expect lots of songs about relationships in this curated playlist—from songs about falling in love to being in love to losing a great love.
What to Wear
Much like their Venusian counterpart, Taurus, this air sign knows how to dress to the nines. (Some might even say they rival Leo as the most fashionable of the Zodiac.) Whether it’s spending a day at home, running errands, or going on a date night, they’re going to feel good and look good doing it.
What to Do
1. Go lingerie shopping
Libras seek the finer things, and as cuffing season creeps up, this is the best time to shop for new intimates—even if you’re just wearing them for yourself! If you can associate this sign with one thing, it’s good taste. With the Libra eye, you’ll be able to pick out some beautiful pieces for your collection.
2. Visit an art museum
Libras are ruled by Venus, which makes them experts at all things beauty, love, and art. A peaceful stroll through an art museum is the perfect way for this air sign to keep their creative juices flowing.
3. Host a grazing board party
If there’s one thing this sign can do exceptionally well, it’s mingling. Having a grazing board party, where everyone is in charge or curating their own board (charcuterie, dessert, dips, oh my!) is a fun way to get together and enjoy your friends’ company. And of course, eat delicious food.
