Characteristics of a Libra:
Librans tend to be charming, elegant, gentle, kind and lovers of beauty and harmony. They are able to stand back and view the big picture in a critical fashion, however, do not handle others questioning their opinions as once they’ve concluded on said opinions, they believe that their found truths are self-evident. Coupled with this is low tolerance for criticism and greediness for approval.
However, these darker aspects are usually not too prominent as Librans tend to have very balanced personalities. They are quite sensitive to others’ needs, and seem to have a sixth sense about emotions, being able to bring their optimism to any situation. They do not like viciousness, violence, cruelty, and despise arguments and conflicts between people. They always try to compromise and cooperate, achieving what they perceive is the best outcome for all.
