The Most Hated Libra Celeb?

All this Libra celeb wants is peace, love, and understanding!

There’s a pattern with Libra celebs—they all seem to excel at a million things all at once! And Gwyneth Paltrow is no exception. Academy Award-winning actor, singer, food writer and TV show host, author, the face of Estée Lauder perfumes, singer, mom, and face of Goop—the only thing she hasn’t quite perfected yet is the sort of lifelong marriage that her parents, Blythe Danner and Bruce Paltrow, enjoyed.

But could anyone but a Libra have come up with “conscious uncoupling” as a way to split from a mate? That’s how Gwyneth described her separation from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. It reflects this sign’s love of peace, harmony, and fairness. With luck, it will all balance out with her new partner, Brad Falchuk.

Quotable Libras

Wise words from famous Libras…

“Only idiots refuse to change their minds.” – Brigitte Bardot

“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.” – Truman Capote

“I see science literacy as a kind of a vaccine against charlatans who would try to exploit your ignorance.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

“It is not wise to violate rules until you know how to observe them.” – T.S. Eliot

“The most important thing in life is, if you have a dream, I mean a real good dream, follow it.” – Evel Knievel

“The mark of a great sportsman is not how good they are at their best but how good they are at their worst.” – Martina Navratilova

“One should always be a little improbable.” – Oscar Wilde

This Libra Is One Hot Grandma!

This Libra may be the world’s hottest grandmother…

Think of Susan Sarandon (star of Bull Durham and a gazillion other movies) and the word “grandmother” doesn’t come immediately to mind. But that’s exactly what she is—not only in real life to Eva Amurri’s little girl, but also on the big screen!

Libras are romantic, intelligent, and idealistic, and Susan has those in spades. Charming on the outside, she hides a strong inner core. And, like others of this Venus-ruled sign, she’s a good listener who can make others smile and feel valued. All extremely useful qualities for a grandmother! The hardest part of parenting? “Letting them make mistakes.” The payoff? “Knowing they’re going to be fine!” Wise words to pass along to the next generation!

What Can’t This Libra Do?

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to appreciate this Libra!

Not all the stars are in Hollywood, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has done his best to introduce as many as he can to the world! Growing up, he was a big fan of Carl Sagan, and he fondly remembers when Dr. Sagan tried to recruit him to Cornell. Tyson went to Harvard instead, but he followed in Sagan’s footsteps as host of Fox’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

Like all Libras, he wears many hats. A college wrestler, rower, and dancer (winner of a national Latin ballroom competition), today he’s a research scientist, author, and collector of fine wines. With Libran good humor he’s taken the flak for downgrading Pluto from planetary status. He takes controversy in stride, “you’ve got to be so deeply in love with your subject that when curve balls are thrown, when hurdles are put in place, you’ve got the energy to overcome them.”

Who’s That (Libra) Girl?

This Libra does not disappoint…

Betty Who (aka Jessica Anne Newham) is on track to be the next pop icon. Who? Who! This Aussie’s song “Somebody Loves You” went viral as the soundtrack to a video of a gay couple getting engaged in a Salt Lake City Home Depot. The response so shocked the Libra singer/songwriter it made her cry. Even better? She sang at the guys’ wedding! Now who’s crying?

The multitalented six-foot-one, platinum-haired musician started playing cello at age four, and then taught herself to play the piano and guitar. But this is no rock ‘n roll wild child, just an incredibly talented musician.

Libra’s Secret Work Advantage

Use your exemplary people skills in a new, beneficial way…

Some people take seminars in order to learn how to get along with bosses and co-workers (and still never get it right), but not you! Your people skills are unmatched. You could sell air conditioners to polar bears in winter.

You avoid water-cooler politics like the plague. Your collection of colleagues, associates, friends, and acquaintances grows by the minute. When the job market is weak and you have to look for work, know that you’re sitting on a gold mine. Don’t be shy about name-dropping, schmoozing, and using every connection you have to reach your career goals.

Mix Business With Pleasure, Libra

Take your personal values to work to be a major success!

You react and relate to the world around you with fairness, diplomacy, and small-d democracy. Your refined aesthetic sense governs the way you live. The actual work you do matters less to you than what you can learn from the decisions you make. These values are an indisputable part of you—and they color your work and private life whether you realize it or not. If your job aligns with your value system, you likely feel fulfilled and unstressed. If not, you might want to look elsewhere.

Libra Signature Style

There’s one piece missing from your wardrobe—get it now!

Actress Kate Winslet, a fellow Libra, is the epitome of your sign’s special qualities of genteel grace, balance, and beauty. She can make something as utilitarian as a wristwatch look sexy.

If you haven’t yet invested in a signature piece, why not give it a whirl? It must be elegant, of course, but it needn’t be boring. Perhaps one that includes a few of your favorite things, like rose gold, coral, or sapphires? And you’re so beguiling—don’t be surprised if your desired bauble arrives as a beautifully wrapped gift!

Need a Vacation, Libra?

Stressed out? Step out of the stilettos and into these instead…

If you’ve been burning the midnight oil, perhaps it’s time to take a well-earned hiatus. You love luxury, but you don’t have to break the bank to pamper yourself.  Traveling to Hawaii, the Bahamas, or Mexico may be beyond your means, but you can still luxuriate in a sauna and relax into a hot-stone treatment or massage.

Stepping into some spa slippers may be easier than it seems. Search online for a day spa in your town offering special packages and discounts. Once you’re inside, the herbal scents and soothing sounds will erase any trace of the outdoor world and ease your cares away. If you still can’t splurge on this, make an at-home spa with bath salts, candles, music, give yourself a pedi… the works!

Are Libras Too Sweet?

You may be overdosing on something you love. Cut back on this…

You know how much you love sugary treats and rich desserts—they’re your weakness! But too much of the sweet stuff contributes to more than cavities and weight gain. It can lead to heart disease, liver disease, and some types of cancer. Yowza! If you need to curb carbs, you don’t have to go cold turkey.

  1. Sip drinks without the added sugar, like water, seltzer water, and unsweetened tea or coffee.
  2. Choose snacks without sugar. Try fresh fruit instead.
  3. Eat fewer refined carbs like white pasta, bread, and crackers.
  4. Eliminate hidden sugars like the ones in salad dressings. Yes, you’ll have to read labels!
  5. Keep it up. Treat yourself now and then, but that sugar-rush craving can be beat.
