The goal for Libra is to witness the importance of co-operation and harmony in human life. Libra is represented by a pair of scales – the only sign to be represented by an inanimate object. This says something about the Libra objective – to be fair and balanced in everything in a detached way – it is an air sign and therefore seeks an ideal. At its best, Libra can view complex situations, maybe emotionally highly charged ones, and come to a balanced view based on a fair consideration of all the options. However, it may take a while to come off the fence! Come down in favour of one side of the scales and the other side goes up and Libra always seeks to restore balance.

Personality Trait of Libra
Libras are compassionate and loving people. They are remembered for their kindness and grace. Librans are great charmers and have an ability to make everyone feel at ease with them. A Libran is a great listener and has good perception skills. Of the popular personality traits of a Libran, is they dislike hurting anybody and are diplomatic in handling sensitive issues. Librans value fairness and expect it to be reciprocated to them.
Another notable personality trait of a Libran is give and take policy. The Librans apply this policy in their emotional relationships also. A Libran would make a wonderful friend and have a wide social circle. They make a good host and ensure the guests are comfortable and is having a good time
Librans appreciate beauty in all things around. Venus, the goddess of love, rules Libra, hence, Librans value and admires beauty in a person, art, music and articles. Librans would do well in professions such as interior and fashion designing and they would also make great artists and musicians.
Another personality trait of a Libran is they love to hold intellectual conversations and they could debate on anything of their interest for hours,. This could be one of the reasons Librans make good lawyers and judges.
A negative personality trait of a Libran is he likes to be always praised and would want to be center of attraction and attention. This is considered as a self-centered personality trait of Libra. Librans hate being criticized and it often make them feel insecure.
Libras in general usually have quite a planned and creative approach to life and the main difference between wishful thinkers and Libras are the fact that they usually end up achieving what they strive for . Heck just look at Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau who set out to get Canada its very own Charter of rights and Freedom and he succeeded even when the odds were terribly against him (he is my fav. politician of all times BTW.)
Emotionless? Not in the least bit. They just try to move emotions out of the way when figuring out a solid solution to a problem without the confines and complications of biased feelings. Usually a sound solution to a problem is more welcomed then a hug (though we will give you one of those if you like as well Lol!)
Libra’s charm may come off as superficial to some but to a Libra its just natural possession and part of their quality. To a Libra, a personality and a sense of self is always an ever changing modus oprendi; Crafting a personality isn’t by any means superficial but rather an indication of evolution and adaptation. Underneath all our logic and reasonable thinking, we still are gentle sensitive creatures Lol! and like everyone else we don’t like getting hurt. Thus we have our own ways to defend ourselves.
And in general doesn’t doesn’t every human feels that they have certain unalienable rights? Its quite a generalization limiting it to it to just one Sun Sign.
Discussion on Libra:
Zodiac Libra is the point to see a shift. They are of balanced nature and that is why they emphasize on the practice of bringing balance in human life. Two extraordinary examples of Libra profile are Mahatma Gandhi and Annie Besant. Former one fought for freedom and latter brought a revolution by bringing a spiritual teacher who was interested in bringing the balance in human life.
Sharing their experiences and self-realization with people around them are among the Libra traits. The Libra personality has been gifted with a sense of knowing the right and wrong that makes them sensitive to others needs. They never hurt anyone around and if it happens by any chance they are the first one to resolve the differences. They are admired by others in their social circle for they always act as a front-runner. Influential, charming and easy going are the common Libra personality traits. They commit themselves to something only when there is no pressure mounted on them.
As far as Libra dark side astrology is concerned, there is no one word for Libra description. They go indecisive, compromising in life for they do not entertain anyone challenging their knowledge base. They lose their temper at times when they see the ugliness around them. And when they are bored they go very lazy.
There is a lot of identifying marks that give this Venus ruled sign away. They often have dimples, a great smile and an attractiveness either inside or out that makes them safe for most people to approach. They seem to love interactions, parties, or gatherings of any kind where they are free to engage in an array of conversation. Being Air, they don’t like things to get heavy or “ugly” but rather prefer “nice” conversations ranging from the weather to the current fashions, at least until they have read what your interests are in their rather cunning fashion. The motive is to feel connected, the real Air drive.

I like how Robert Wilkinson puts it here in Aquariuspapers.com:
Mythologically, Libra is in the axis of the Relator, or Lover. This sign (along with its polar opposite, Aries) repotentializes the dance of relationship between self and others begun in Aries. Libra shows us how to be refined and gracious as we interact with others.
It is the part of us willing to dance with others' points of view, seeing other perspectives, and basically just being diplomatic and pleasant. Libra’s reasonableness and moderation are healthy antidotes for the stubborn selfish extremism that seems so prevalent today.
Libra, when freed of the traps of superficiality, vanity, extravagance, timidity, indecisiveness, vacillation, impatience, and getting too theoretical, demonstrate a harmonious, cooperative, agreeable impartial consideration for others that brings a greater sense of belonging to everyone involved.
They are born peacemakers and mediators, and see the ten thousand ways we can all get along if everyone just gives a little bit. They are expressive, modest, inspirational, creative, appreciative, romantic and artistic. The sign of Libra has given us some of the greatest icons of history.
Think Mohandas K. Gandhi, master politician, revolutionary, statesman and “mahatma,” or Great Spirit. He led his country to independence from Great Britain through demonstrating the practical efficacy of the doctrine of “non-violence,” or ahimsa, applied through the power of satyagraha, or “Soul-force.”
