Libra mothers probably only rival Cancer mothers when it comes to feeling like motherhood is a natural fit. Libras are happiest when they live for other people, and children are the (healthiest) best relationship in which to do that! While Libras can generally be indecisive, motherhood brings out an organized and well-structured side to Libra women. They idealize and romanticize parenthood as well as home life, often working hard to create dreamy home environments and picture perfect parties, events and activities. Cue the tears (mom’s tears, that is!) when things don’t play out like they do in the movies and kids are throwing tantrums! Libra mamas can have a hard time dealing with the disappointment of real motherhood when it doesn’t match up to the dream!
Libra moms are deeply empathetic and analytic and have incredible patience. Their children will always feel compassionately cared for and listened to when they have a Libra mother at home. These mama believe strongly in fairness and justice, so for example, discipline in a Libra home will likely follow a logical thread; no punishment for punishment’s sake. They are social butterflies, incredibly empathetic, well-dressed and keep their homes well-appointed. Social calendars are usually full, they enjoy fluttering from one play date to the next and getting to meet new friends along the way. They hold their children to high standards when it comes to education, presentation and manners, sometimes to the point of overwhelm, leading to anxiety and stress. Libra moms have to be self-aware and not get too caught up in the competitive side of parenting, and instead realize that all kids are different, not everything is picture perfect all the time, and setbacks are not failures.
Libras struggle with finding balance (ah, the scales) in most areas of life and motherhood is no exception. They feel fulfilled when living for others, serving and caring for others, but they will always come back to feelings of emptiness if they don’t invest into their own emotional and mental well being. External validation, as well as fear of criticism and judgement often drive Libra’s decisions-making processes, so these mamas need to make sure they are tuned in to their motives when making big choices.
