They are also good lovers and go all out to give pleasure to their mates.

Negative Traits

A very disconcerting quality about an otherwise sweet Libra sun sign is that at heart, these people do not tolerate any argumentative situations, arising out of other people challenging their own opinions directly. To the Libra man/woman, once they have reached a conclusion, it is supposed to be final and ultimate, and they simply do not relish the fact that others may have a somewhat different opinion. Criticism of their viewpoints is an absolute “no-no” for a Libran. They constantly desire the stamp of approval from others in society.

Libra people can also be big flirts, even after they are already married! Their close partners do certainly not appreciate this. They are also at times, prone to involving themselves in frivolous activities, and perceived by some people to be shallow. They are rarely angry even when circumstances force them to be so, but at times they can become furious.

The Libra horoscope shows that they also have a great tendency to gossip, and take great pleasure in getting to know about each and every scandal within their known circle. This is true for males and females alike. Lastly, they love to spend and to live life extravagantly, which may lead to minor financial troubles. The male can become an irreparable gambler while the female may degenerate into a jealous social spendthrift.
