With the sign of scales, Libra are the only inanimate sign in the entire zodiac. Every other sign are representative of creatures of some kind, whether human or animal. Some astrologers consider the Libra as the most desirable of all the signs as it represents the zenith of the year; that high point in the seasons when the hard work of the previous spring is harvested.
Libra characteristics deem them often good looking and Librans are among the most civilized of all the zodiac. They exhibit good taste, charm and elegance. They are naturally kind, gentle and love the pleasures which harmony and beauty can bring.
Librans have a strong critical mind and can easily play devil’s advocate by standing back and look at matters impartially. Once they have reached a conclusion though, they don’t suffer arguments of others very well and this manifests itself in impatience with criticism and a greed for approval. With that said, they are more often than not well balanced and even tempered types.
Sensitive to the needs of others, Librans have an innate understanding of the emotions and can head off sadness in their companions with their own optimism. As highly social humans, they loathe any form of cruelty, vulgarity and conflict.
You’ll find your Libra to be artistic more than intellectual yet often too balanced to be avant garde in the arts. Their perception, observation and critical ability gives their work integrity as is indicative by the works of Paul Simon or John Lennon.
