Libra possesses a special place in the zodiac.  It is the only sign that is an inanimate object.  Therefore in many ways it is the most desirable of all of the zodiac symbols. It represents the fall when the all of the years work is coming to fruition and people are allowed to actually enjoy themselves.  Libra is also considered the most civilized of all the zodiac symbols.  As the only inanimate object, it represent human accomplishment, not animal instinct.

They have good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced, diplomatic and even tempered.

Others also know Librans for their sensitivity.  They have an amazing ability to feel what others are feeling and then relate to them on a personal level.  It is often said that people always feel better about themselves after spending time with a Libra. They loathe cruelty, viciousness and vulgarity and detest conflict between people, so they do their best to cooperate and compromise with everyone around them, and their ideal for their own circle and for society as a whole is unity.

While Libras are almost always artistic their balanced personality does not lend itself to exploration of the avant-garde.  Libras tend to gravitate towards the more beautiful aspects of life; this includes art and the people they know.

The negative Libran character may show frivolity, flirtatiousness and shallowness. It can be changeable and indecisive, impatient of routine, colorlessly conventional and timid, easygoing to the point of inertia, seldom angry when circumstances demand a show of annoyance at least; and yet Librans can shock everyone around them with sudden storms of rage. Their love of pleasure may lead them into extravagance; Libran men can degenerate into reckless gamblers, and Libran women extravagant, jealous and careless about money sometimes squander their wealth and talents in their over enthusiasm for causes which they espouse. Both sexes can become great gossipers. A characteristic of the type is an insatiable curiosity that tempts them to enquire into every social scandal in their circle.

Also, because of this ’harvest’ mentality they tend to be a little lazy and they dislike really hard work.  This can get them in trouble, but usually people like them so much that they get a free pass.
