A leaning towards diplomacy and keeping the peace mean Librans often put other’s needs and wants ahead of their own.

They can be experts at weighing up the pros and cons of any arguments, meaning they often end up being fence-sitters. More often than not a Libra promotes harmony and equity. They’ll try for balance and fairness at all costs, and will go to great lengths to avoid clashing or confronting others. This can which can end up backfiring big time.

Librans have an excellent sense of logic and can win an argument on any side. But more often than not, end up being neutral, which comes off looking like a fear of commitment.
