If you’re the kind of person who likes to move around in a big circle of friends, you’re probably aware of the different roles each one of your mates takes on in any given situation. There’s always that one person to take the lead and steer everyone else towards adventure.
And there’s always that one person who hits the breaks and insists on a few extra minutes to weigh the pros and cons, the one who likes to be responsible and ensure everyone is having an equally good time.
It’s always good to have a pack of friends with different personality traits – as we all know, we find strength in our differences.
Imagine if you were only ever hanging out with Aries folk, it would be a headbutting experience that would most likely end up with everyone ramming their head against the walls, reluctant to give up their stubborn wants and ideals.
If you’re hitting the clubs or hosting Netflix marathons with people born in October in tow, you can always count on them to turn your night into one to remember. Here’s what you can expect from your Libra and Scorpio friends!
Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd
If you and your group of friends ever find yourselves arguing over where to have dinner or which film to watch, you can always count on the Libras of the bunch to step up and make an informed decision that is fair to everyone.
Libras love nothing more than to bring and maintain harmony in their lives and those around them, and they do so with an empathic approach to weighing up all the options. They get extremely irritable when things are out of order or when relationships are thrown off balance.
While most of your friends might be easy-going in terms of their choice of restaurants, clothes and beauty products, the Libra will most likely be the snob of the group.
They will opt for obsessively clean venues with elegant aesthetics and will be the first to complain about details the rest of you are prone to overlook. A restaurant serving food on mismatched plates and tablecloths is the Libra’s worst nightmare.
Chances are that the Libras in your circle of friends have the best fashion style, hairdos and make-up skills. You’ll never see them leaving the house without their hair perfectly styled and their tops expertly matched with their shoes.
Libras take great pride in their physical appearance and do not take kindly to perceived competition. Their constant need to one-up you in terms of outfits and status can be quite annoying, but they more than make up for it with their ability to resolve conflicts.
Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st
We all have that one friend who is drawn to the mysteries and dangers in life and they’re not afraid to explore them with brave curiosity. Scorpio’s natural intensity – courtesy of their ruling planets, Mars and Pluto – is as intriguing as it is intimidating.
The Scorpios in your life are the ones who can spend hours and hours discussing the state of the world and uncovering humanity’s darkest secrets over copious amounts of coffee or a few pints.
They find it hard to tap into the banalities of life – they are simply too imaginative and passionate to waste their time on seemingly unimportant questions. They’ll quickly excuse themselves when conversations get stuck on the latest gossip.
While the rest of your friends may talk about their work and love-lives openly, you’ll have to work a lot harder at getting a Scorpio to open up to you about their thoughts and feelings. This can make them come across as stoic – which they are, but only on the outside.
Scorpios are highly emotional beings – they feel everything with great intensity, hence, when they feel hurt, the pain can feel overwhelming. They’ll keep on trucking on, however, and are reluctant to show their struggles.
This makes Scorpios – especially in friendships and relationships – particularly dangerous. Rub a Scorpio up the wrong way and you’ll be sure to feel it. Nothing quite compares to a Scorpio’s sting: they are vengeful and secretive, the worst possible combo.
The good thing is, you’ll always have a fierce protector with a Scorpio in your corners. They are very loyal and protective of their loved ones and will fight for them until the bitter end.
The Libras & Scorpios in Your Life
If you have both a Libra and Scorpio in your circle of friends, you’re in for an interesting ride.
While the Scorpio will always do their best to encourage you to dig deeper and uncover the many mysteries of the unknown, the Libra will keep you safe and in check by weighing up all the advantages and disadvantages – they are the perfect combo of friends to have!
So, now that you know more about how these personality types work, you can look into buying them personalised birthday gifts that complement their traits perfectly!
