The Monkey is full of fun and energy and is extremely loving and sociable. These character traits are referred to in Chinese Astrology to determine personalities. People whose birth is in the Year of the Monkey are believed to inherit some of these characteristics. The Monkey’s influence is quite strong in Western Astrology born Libran’s. The Libran Monkey is usually friendly, affectionate, and evenly balanced in their give and take temperaments. They are almost always compromising and agreeable and highly considerate of others. A Libran Monkey has a lovely even nature, as the Libran balance adds a bit of calm to the liveliness and mischievious Monkey.
Libra Monkey Traits
The Libra Monkey is for the most part cheery, with a bright outlook on life and is a helpful kind personality. They often have the Libran ability to see things from all angles so they are fair-minded and easy to get along with. These personalities like to keep busy and have lots of energy and tolerance. This makes them suitable to most jobs and their strong aptitude to compromise makes them brilliant work mates. Libran Monkey’s generally have lots of friends and an active social life. They like to keep up to date with things and will have an interest in current happenings in the world.
A Libra Monkey is attracted by all kinds of new information and they will usually be avid readers. Their collected and compromising nature’s allow them to look at things calmly and equally before they evaluate them. These evaluations also include people as the Libran Monkey is also fairly astute. They will frequently use their instincts and perception to decide if others are amiable and trustworthy. These individual’s tend to be rather good at assessing people, probably in order to protect their sometimes too soft meet halfway personalities. Their caring and sharing disposition is occasionally taken advantage of if they are not careful.
Personal relationships are most often an essential for the Libran Monkey, they need to be loved and wanted. They absolutely loathe being on their own and will usually seek a long term partner quite early in life. The charisma from both astrological influences of Libra and the Monkey help these people to attract and keep soul mates. A Libran Monkey’s compromised and composed approach towards others is one of the best in the zodiac. In relationships they bloom and grow and partners are treated to the romantic and sensual sides of their character. They are agreeable and considerate for the majority of the time.
The main weakness in these particular personalities is in their inability to lose arguments graciously. The Libran Monkey will not provoke arguments but can really argue their case if one is initiated. Their usual compromising temperament is always unbalanced by a disagreement of any kind. If they feel that they are right and the other person is wrong a Libran Monkey will become very uncompromising and immensely stubborn. It is best not to get into a verbal fight with this personality as this weakness is rather prominent and easily activated.
Libra Monkey Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Social situations are where Libra Monkeys truly shine. As children, most learn to use their charm and wit to become favorites of the adults around them. Therefore they learn a lot of adult social cues early on when most children are only learning the social cues of their peer group. Libra Monkeys are very smart and very quick to learn new things. In is inevitable that they will find clever ways of getting what they need simply because they can. These early lessons become ingrained in childhood and often define how one approaches challenges when they get older.
Sure enough, adults born under the sign of Libra Monkey attract others easily. They are friendly, outgoing, well mannered, and gregarious. They usually have advanced senses of humor and love being around people. Many valuable lessons are learned through these social outings and as long as they can maintain perspective, these lessons can be great advantages at all points in life.
Libra Monkeys require a great deal of attention. They really want to be loved, respected, and admired, but if they can’t seem to get those things they will happily settle for attention alone. At this point, they aren’t likely to care if the attention is good or bad, as long as it exists. Libra Monkeys only advance early on by standing out, so if they can’t find a way to stand out positively they will begin to act up to seek the attention they crave.
As adults, love is going to be difficult. Most Libra Monkeys are used to being the center of attention and are often considered the most important person in many of their relationships. A true, even partnership with another greatly depletes the perceived importance of one individual over another, and this can be a very difficult transition for members of this sign. Both Libra and Monkey tend to have unrealistic expectations of others, and thus nobody ever seems to lives up to their standards. They romanticize relationships and don’t want to deal with the reality of them. Becoming bored and unhappy with partners happens often. Again, a certain level of maturity and selflessness is required in order to find a true partnership, and this will be a key life challenge for this sign.
Libra Monkey Business (Career & Goals)
Libra Monkeys like money because money gives them the freedom to do as they please. However, being stuck in a rote, boring job for years in order to get that money is less than ideal. Ideally, Libra Monkeys would love to be swept away by a millionaire and taken care of for the rest of their lives, but of course this is not very realistic. Therefore, members of this sign have to find a career that fits their personality type.
There are two core aspects of the Libra Monkey personality that focus their strengths. One is in an artistic or creative field, such as writing, art dealing, beautician, filmmaker, or graphic artist. Any of these roles offer this sign what it needs - a way to earn money creatively while maintaining a network of peers and social contacts.
The other set of career options has more to do with helping others. Despite an early penchant for self-focusing, many mature Libra Monkeys find surprising fulfillment in being of service to others, yet they still require roles that allow them a certain amount of intellectual and diplomatic flexibility. Jobs in nursing, teaching, and counseling are among the best fits for this sign and provide some of the biggest opportunities for growth.
