Dark Side of Libra: Dramatic, Controlling, Condescending, Repressed

Updated on July 16, 2016
SylviaSky profile image

Gemini, Leo, and Capricorn "dark sides" are in Sylvia Sky's ebook Sun Sign Confidential: The Dark Side of All 12 Zodiac Signs, at Amazon.


The Sign of Balance = The Illusion of Balance

True Librans don’t like conflict or ugliness. They want tranquil homes decorated artistically. They are so gracious and generous that friends are shocked when they first see Libra throw a tantrum, or realize that Libra told a lie. Why, it’s hard to believe it’s the same person!

Hard to believe? Think of Mahatma Gandhi. He started as a lawyer, but quit and became famous for passive resistance. This was a great and successful political move and also true to his sign. Libra shies away from conflict everywhere— except within the family. Hero though he was, Gandhi ignored his wife and refused to send his sons to college, disowning his eldest who got married instead of being chaste, and I guarantee there was as much yelling in his home as there is in every Libra home. But when the phone rings, Libra will answer it calmly and sweetly.

Librans want peace and negative ones want it at any price, even if it means sneaking around, denying, controlling, and drama. If peace can’t be had, silence and secrets will do. Many Librans won't listen to reports of pain or unpleasantness and fool themselves that things they don't acknowledge didn't happen. Because they repress their pain and everybody else's, they have meltdowns. Think of Judge Judy (born October 21) and the pain she's seen and absorbed over 25 years as a judge in family court. She balances that by verbally skewering and humiliating people. Another judge with an attitude is Simon Cowell (Oct. 7). Men with a Libra Sun or Moon are masters of “the silent treatment” and passive aggression. It took Libran baseball idol Mark McGwire (Oct. 1) five years to confess to using steroids. It might take five years to get your own Libra male off your sofa. He will yell that all he wants is some peace.

Librans speak kindly in public, but even the best ones do not really believe others have feelings or brains. They see everyone as mindless and feel called to enlighten them (Gandhi again, and John Lennon (Oct. 9), who cheated on his first wife "thousands" of times and told her so). A Libra mom still reminds her 50-year-old daughters to say “thank you.”

Libras are born from September 23 – October 22

Who could hate Gandhi? His wife and kids. Born Oct. 2, 1869, this photo was taken about 1929.

Libra Guests and Invitations

Librans are worrywarts and being or feeling alone is the most horrible thing they can imagine, one they compensate for with food (especially fats, alcohol, and sweets) and urge others to overindulge along with them. Like the diet sodas they love, negative Librans are artificially sweet.

Often, Libra guests arrive late if at all, and invitations from Libra specify the time you should leave so they can be their irritable selves again. A Libran I worked with began the day by removing her coat and airing her daily 20-minute complaint. She had no idea she had this habit. Another one I knew years later did the same; hard to believe, but true! I invited her to be part of a group, and they made fun of her "opening monologue" behind her back.

A negative Libra will move in with or marry someone to escape the financial or emotional pit they have dug for themselves. When charged with bad behavior, they will say, “Oh, I’m such a bad person. I’ve been so bad to you all this time.” The more articulate Libras will quote Gandhi: “Hate the sin but love the sinner.”

Hard-to-Love Librans

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (Sept. 24)

Al Sharpton (Oct. 3)

Lee Harvey Oswald (Oct. 18)

George Zimmerman, killer of Trayvon Martin (Oct. 5)

Sylvia Browne, fake psychic (Oct. 19)

    confused about mother 5 years ago

    this is bang on about libra, thank you.

    i have a libra mother and she fights with everyone in the family, driving them away from her. she is so cold blooded that there has never been any warmth from her ever. but she is still our mother, so we love her because of the blood relation. we were raised by our families - especially my father's side of the family to have a structured life home. my father has a scorpio moon and he has been drinking his misery away due to her.

    how so true this article is, to hit home. she tells us to never reveal the dark secrets to our family - which is her fighting with us all the time - that is her dark secret because she drives us to go to therapy and drink and drugs. to the point that when we leave she wonders why she is alone. then, she tells us we are all betrayers because we allowed all the truths to come out about her unpeaceful nature within the family. she does answer the door, phone with a winning deceptive smile and everyone buys it.

    confused about mother 5 years ago

    to add, i truly think if all libras are like this in private with their family, husband, wives, children, then i begin to wonder, if they should just remain single and live their lives in a monk like fashion? because that is the only thing that will truly make them happy. i know it's our choice to take drugs, drink ect but when you're a child, it's hard to make a definite choice so you get depressed and begin to think why did i get born into this family, of my libra mother's deception? don't get me wrong, she has many good qualities: she can make many friends but her friends take advantage of her, and the good ones admit to her that its easy to take advantage of her so they feel bad.

    it is like my mother likes to be peaceful so much she allows people to take her for granted all the time but with her family, the controlling and cruelty begins. and i'm glad this is anonymous because if she knew i revealed this about her, she would hate me and call me a traitor to the family and to her for revealing the truth. it is like she wants to be looked upon as the saint.

    Niamh 4 years ago

    Oh man. I'm Libra female... and I can definitely see elements of my "negative" side in this. But mostly, this describes my Libra step-father *almost* to a T. There was one discrepancy... the article describes Libra as "always being late", if they show up at all. My step-father always shows up WAY early. If he says "we'll meet at noon," he will likely be there at 11am, if not earlier. And he'll be annoyed that you're not as early as he is. But pretty much everything else is right on for him. He's a negative Libra, I'd say. I think the negative aspects are accentuated in him. He has an incredibly controlling nature (whereas I am live-and-let-live type), and it repels people. I often wonder what his Moon and Rising signs are.

    As for me... the parts that ring true for me are that I'm usually very calm, reasonable, nice, and gracious... but, I have a dark side... and when it comes out, the people who have not seen that side of me are rather shocked that I can be so cold and well, angry. I do tend to get frustrated easily... but when it comes to conflict within my family... I do let my frustrations get to me more than I should, but I cannot STAND conflict with my husband. The tiniest bit of conflict (even if unintended from him) sends me on the verge of tears (probably because I'm Cancer Rising). But the way I handle my anger/frustrations is far different than the way my step-father handles his. My Capricorn Moon sign helps ground me, I think, and helps me to stop and think rationally before going off the handle. My immediate family is so important to me that it's basically where I want peace the most. But, I can be passive aggressive... while simultaneously being extremely affectionate (it's always been incredibly important to me to tell my husband and my kids every day that I love them, often multiple times in the day... and to show lots of physical affection. Yes, I can be clingy in that respect... but thankfully my Aries husband responds well to that and will be just as affectionate with me).

    The part about "specifying an end time" for my guests to leave CAN be true. Not always. I'm very much a home-body, so if I have visitors, I actually like it for them to stay past the time they were planning on leaving. I don't usually get to converse with someone in person other than my husband and kids, so sometimes having another person come over, I kind of want them to stay for a while, lol. But when I was younger, when my friends would come over, I often DID have a general time that I wanted them to leave... and if they annoyed me, I had a tendency to be somewhat rude to them.

    Libars are so like that, stop fronting people! Always some drama when a Libra is around, always! As long as my dad isn't home we have no fights or problems but the minute the family finds out his shift is over and he's on his way to the house, we dodge and go to our rooms to avoid him. It's like that with my best girlfriend too, nobody really cares for her we just tolerate her presence. This article is real.

    Imagine having a Libra mother-in-law who is divorced and upset with everyone. Blames everyone. Her son is betraying her, etc. And the cyclone part is totally true. Talk about losing it and becoming hysterical. Almost like a child acting out the worst tantrum ever!

    libras love conflict? 4 years ago

    saw this article on libras because the libras in my family love conflict. so i begin to wonder, if it's because of what this article says:

    " but the good news with the Sun in Libra is that Libra needs stress and strife, for without strife, Libra has nothing to work with, nothing to bring into balance, nothing to peaceably resolve, no equitable justice to serve."

    How true! I have a very good Libra "friend" (who doesn't deserve the title of ex-boyfriend!) He would seem so sweet and innocent but, to this day, I still find out little things about him that he hid(hides!) from me. Ironic. This hub is dead on and a little comical too. You can't help but love them though, they are quite irresistible. :-)

    you ppl are only looking on the bad traits of libra WHAT ABOUT THE GOOD TRAITS???? every star sign has good and BAD TRAITS i wonder what are yours!!!!!

    libra ppl are also kind caring and if they did or said something bad they feel guilty about it that they wont even sleep peacefully until they say sorry or their wrong , cause we do admitt it, and yes we do love to complain if it doesn't reach our standard and high expectations but that's because we want to make a point that it could be better , and we show affectioness when other love do an affort to please us and by that we always reward them with something more and bigger.

    nice one :) I didn't know this negative side of Librans. The only thing I always hated about them (it still gets on to my nerves) is their indecisiveness (I am a Scorpio and I have so many Mars elements in my birth chart). I have two close friends who are Librans and both have displayed these traits at different times.

  • SylviaSky profile image

    SylviaSky 4 years ago from USA

    Yes, Librans can be indecisive. Positive Libra will tell you he or she simply can't decide. Negative Libra will say "whatever you want," but no matter what you choose, he or she will express in every possible way that your choice has deeply annoyed them and they hate every bloody minute of it.

    WOW! Why not just label us "Children of Satan" while you're at it???!! I do see SOME of my negative traits being described here, but you get way far fetched with your "Libra Bashing" ... Our invites are telling folks when to leave?! WOW! I'm a family man, who loves & appreciates his family & friends, & I would NEVER push any loved 1 out of any type of invite I'd extend them. The longer they stay, the better. "Even great Librans don't believe others have feelings or brains"..... Really? I'm probably the most modest, loving Libran out there, who's quick to give praise & an open heart & ear to folks... Remember we are ALL human, so we're NOT perfect. Of course we'll have our NEGATIVE side. Yet to BASH AWAY at us, & have some folks chime in & give praise to your rant, is offensive. I can name some OTHER signs who are WAY more heartless, uncaring, cold, & deceiving than a Libra. Sounds like a few Librans rubbed you the wrong way, so you go & bash the rest of us. Real professional of you, Sylvia....

    first of all , im not that into astrology but i always give it a chance to convince me but it fails every time.

    but still all the articles i read about me being libra never describe me and a few do because they say the most traits the people share. and particularity your article is far from the truth because it was written subjectively and not objectively.

    they say im social and IM NOT but still not aloof , they say im indecisive but has never been said im weighing the options or not impulsive (that's why i never regretted a decision i take)

    they say libra make good lawyers and judges , how come they are indecisive?

    they say the libra people are selfish and self-centered and narcissistic but still they say libra people are people pleaser and consider the other's rights first , how come?!!

    i believe that the environment you grew up in and the way you grew up with besides the Genetic factors have more to do with your character than the period you were born in!

    The above article is about the "dark side" of Libra. Librans are, of course, a mixture of positive and negative traits just like any other sign. I believe along with you that heredity and environment affect every personality. Astrology is a tool for discernment. It is good for reflecting on the rich mixture that comprises the self.

    Everyone is different with different interpretations. Opinions alone won't settle or change a persons mind. Be fair to everyone. Making judgements based on a sign is completely different than each person of that sign. Sounds like fools got mad because a Libra told the truth to your face. Don't believe an opinion from a person when it isn't factual. Do research and come correct and then when you do the answers will be inconclusive. No answer. It's no answer to how a person will act, behave, and govern. Yu can't govern no one actions or personalities. A Zodiac sign is a general sense of a person not to actually believe that's how that person is from bad experiences or good experiences. I only know me and nobody else. Just like anyone else. This article doesn't affect me. Right now y'all sound stupid and mad. Y'all look it up and bash a sign for a reason. Judge a person, no judge yourself. Let god do his judging upon you accordingly.

    you know, I'm a libra. as a true libra I debate this and question my own self. I see valid points here, I feel detached, I get angry, and I also do love alcohol. but again, I too am with a libra and have libra friends, and this can be somewhat right but also very biased and exaggerated. I personally didn't get too offended by this but it saddens me that the biggest points you missed in here were what caused very one sided accusations. I'm assuming you are not a libra yourself, libras are the scales, in order to judge a libra you would need to figure one out. because they are the scales it makes them an oxymoron which is extremely confusing at opposite ends intertwining into one. understandable as to the judgement but balance is their key. they do not show emotion, but they feel deeply. they are everything to do with fairness, balance, and equality so you must think.. why would they do those horrible things? was there a backstory? I would think yes. that's like asking, why is malificent so evil and nasty? well for those who know, because the king captured her heart then betrayed her and cut off her wings for a crooked deal.. the only reason a libra would ever be so nasty is if they were treated unfairly and they do this to create balance and equality positive or negative it is within librans nature to create balance. just like the saying "treat others how you want to be treated" or the idea of karma is like a motto for the libra. this is correct might I add, but it is also biased and one sided. libras are always kind in the beginning because they believe morally, it is what's right, and if you study libras they are very civilized. so naturally they prefer harmony and love because Venus is their ruling planet. but unfortunately they are about balance so if inflicted upon, they inflict back. some libras are better than this but again you were stating the dark side. I think you have right to say as you please, but I think you need to put into better perspective. some information here is too overboard, almost even inaccurate and can cause problems. to generalize this as all libras is definitely wrong.

    Quite an eye opener to read this article about Libras. As a Libra myself [10/17] I can definitely admit to seeing elements of my negative side in this. And would it surprise you that I DO NOT get along with Libra men at all? I can't stand them so it doesn't surprise me that Gandhi wasn't a nice man to his wife and children. Their completely different out in public as you've stated.

    I knew this all before I read it here. Also, I've always known that the men can be quite cowardly, if you consider that they only have big balls when it comes to women and children. My mom is a lot like the first commenter described. She is the boss in the family, and no one dares to go against her unless they are prepared to deal with her rage. She drove our relatives away and cut ties with nearly all her siblings. She treats her husband like a slave (even maids get more respect). And she hates small talk with her children. She is so uninterested with what we think or feel and is always preoccupied with making crafts and promoting her business. She has a ton of facebook friends, and they all adore her. She is so lovable and charming on social media, it's ridiculous. She even goes thru great lengths to portray enthusiastic pride she has for all of us. It is completely awkward to us because we know the truth, and we see the blatant pretense. I've even told her I would rather only communicate with her on facebook, so that way, she can show any interest and give me respect, because in real life, she is extremely unconcerned with what I have to say. Growing up, she was physically abusive to us. My uncle was even worse to his wife and kids. We would run when it was time for him to come home. My sister's husband is exactly the same way, and puts my nephews thru a lot of emotional abuse. But he became really reasonable once, when my boyfriend, a man, challenged him once. Pussy.

    I have a friend like that I love her like crazy. One day I went to visit her the train stopped running she knew I was coming and made a scene out of me and another guy. She backed off and allowed the situation to get worse. I knew her for four years I never met this person before. She drove off and left me in a parking garage I asked her to drop me off at the train station the guy kept getting in my face because he helped her out with something. I walked to the ts and slept out on the bench it was a scary moment for me. It felt like my soul was leaving my body that's how much damaged I felt. Four months later I said phuk it forgave myself and her. We met up again she brought it up and apologized after all that I can't believe I still love til this day. That night made me realize something words don't mean shit from people.

    LOL at the person/people who got angry at this. Of course every sign has positive/negative traits and no sh*t that any of those traits can be seen in any person, Libra or not. We're all human and comprised of the same emotions. However for those of use who follow astrology there are certain behavioral patterns that are discernible in the various signs. Of course there are always exceptions. Also if you think this is bad try being a Capricorn...most of the time even our "positive" traits are portrayed in a not so pleasant light.

    That being said, I grew up with a Libra mother. "Illusion of balance" is spot on. This woman always has to have the last word and it's usually a dig or a jab of some sort. It's all smiles and good times until you -really- get to know her. The arguments are endless. Nothing is ever good enough and there is always drama. Always. Outsiders find this amusing but let me tell you, living with that is a special kind of hell because no one believes you until they experience it. And then they are shocked at the truth.

    Libra wears a very pretty mask but take that away and there is a whole lot of ugly underneath the friendly facade.

    I am a cancer guy with considerable libra energy in my birth chart.

    I have libran way of seeing matters,weighing pros and cons and yes some times i take too much time in deciding what option to chose and which course to navigate along.

    the reason behind this libran taking too much time to finally decide something is their inner fear that what if they chose an option which would have turn out to be wrong with a very little difference to the correct one ??? This supposition becomes so strong in their minds bcz they tend to analyse matters with intricacy,and this is the real hurdle in their decision making.

    Librans just have to come to the fact that even if they have chosen the 'very correct one' according to them,their would always be a possibility of turning that decisions to be a faliure.

    The lesson is : "Many times its not our correct decisions that bring about success....rather its the never giving up attitude that help us find tru success in life.

    Wow I feel the same way about the cappy part. It's like here are some positive traits about you, but wait let me add some dark quality so you feel more shit about yourself.

    And about the Libra, I know a girl libra and I'm not sure if this is what she's like behind the scene. But I have always gotten an uneasy feeling about her after knowing her for a while. Since I couldn't care less what kind of person she is, or anybody, as long you can leave your negativity behind or if you can't just simply leave. I just don't believe adjusting yourself just so someone can feel good about themselves or make things harmonic. That's just how it is, you meet someone that will like you or they won't like you.

    LaMorenita 20 months ago

    I'm a cancer and all I have to say is this is true!!!!!! This describes my father and a lot of libra men I know. When libra men doesn't get what they want, forget it. my father treated my mother and his kids horrible. He should be in jail for the physical abuse but got away with it. In public he was the nicest but he definitely had jekyll/hyde syndrome. We grew up fearing for our lives. Suicide seem like a better option, that's how horrible it was... I'm glad I survive it. My mom no, she passed away from it in 95 when I was 14. I had to raise myself and I turned out pretty good. Being guided from the other sign. I'm sorry (not sorry) I just believe in the zodiac and use it as a guide, the same way people use their bible or any other thing they believe in. The zodiac has not let me down, the whole 34 years I been on this planet. Before there was religion, there was the zodiac. Believe it if you want and numerology. The people who say" I don't believe in astrology" Those are the very same people that read their horoscope on the low when nobody is watching, lol. I know all signs have negative traits but Libras...forget it... they are just the must cold-blooded sign of the zodiac. The september libras are very different from the october ones. They just are. The octobers ones I know, they are just very vindictive. People on here can take offense all they want, to this article but the author hit it dead on the nail. I have way more stories about this sign, it would go on for a few pages like a mini novel. I'm writing a script about my encounter with libras and at first it was 25 pages but for some strange reason now its 135 pages, lol... I got a lot to say about this sign. Every since I was little I have been meeting or attracting this sign and its to the point where it's all the time. Maybe because my father is a libra october 11th. I tent to always meet October libras, some of them having the same birthday too. I can always tell a libra and I run from them, like literally.

    You tell you me you are libra, I'm out like the road runner, lol. I can't. I do love libras as friends. but libras think they know it all. The libras I know they love the arts and they are teachers too. My father swore he was god and is the most self righteous man I know, never been wrong a day in his life. I find nothing balances about libras at all. Very indecisive. from the moment my father woke up, from the time he went to sleep, he was ALWAYS complaining and then it would turn into rage. Libras love the idea of whatever it is that they want, love money, etc but rarely will they do anything to get it. They will hook up with someone to make their life easier. My father never worked. That's another story...I can't on here. wait for the movie, lol. Libras are critical of everything. they want what they want. they are possesive and controlling. Very clingy and needy too. Love to play the victim.

    I can recall my father doing 2 maybe 3 nice things for me but then he went back to being a bully and abusive. I meet other libras who are nice at first but then if they want you and they feel rejected by you, forget it. even the ones that are married or have a S.O.A friend of mine, I had to stop talking to him because he was in love with me and he's married and he doesn't care. it doesn't matter how many times i told that fool, its not gonna happen. He's still keeping hope alive. Idiot!! Every time I tell a libra why I don't want to be with them and I talk about their traits and how they are, even the good parts, they stay clear from me, because I know or much.

    I have been told by several libra that I have a slick mouth and that I'm a know it all. They can't run their game on me. They can't charm their way on me. This actor I met, i wanted to meet him for a long time. He was a libra, married I never knew that and dude wanted to sleep with me. I can always tell a libra, always, they have this look about them. I have told several libras, that they were libras and they ask me how I knew that, lol. I just do. I can't be bothered with them. You literally would have to have no life to deal with a libra. They want to control and possess every part of you. They don't care about how you feel. Very condescending! I keep my communication very long distance. I'm a cancer and they keep flocking to me. This is an enigma to me always will be.

    Its really funny how a lot of you other signs are quick to sum up Libras shortcomings, yeah, we all have our bad traits, but hey do not forget who keeps the peace, who bonds people together, I for one, personally have a bad feeling about every Gemini, I guess due to a past experience, but would I live my whole life trying to avoid and putting every Gemini in a box, I believe your heart is all that matters, if you prioritize the wellbeing of people around you, other signs take advantage of that, especially the cancer, but hey, no one wrote an article about that, do I sense envy by other signs, please let the libra be, lets all deal with our faults, make ourselves better people for those we love, if you give me love, there is no phucking way I aint giving that back, Libras are firm believers of Karma, but you try to treat me like shit, cos you feel I am always gonna try to do your bidding, there is a limit to how far that goes, so when I bring out that part off me that is so annoying, you don't think you are deserving of the exact treatment you dished, Please have a sit,

    Seems like your libra bashing. Its funny because I know 2 Arquarians who display these characteristics, and they have no libra prominent in thier charts. But im not suprised, Arquarians have a big mouth towards others but hate to be judged lol

    Most astrologers will say Libras are sweet, balanced, and peaceful, and leave it at that. I grew up with three Libras and wondered why I never saw an astrologer discuss their dark side. I think one commenter had a good point: Librans create unnecessary conflict and then attempt to restore the balance any way they can.

    My mother is a libra. She is a bully, verbally and emotionally abusive, and the biggest manipulator I know. All she cares about is MONEY. She is a miserable waste of life who still tries to control me after 32 YEARS! She loves to belittle, gossip, and spread rumors. She loves DRAMA and playing the victim. She has never taken responsibility for anything in life. She chugs her crown royal then blames everyone else for her faults and problems. She's the lamest person I know.

    I am libra and I am very introverted. Most people who cut me off from their lives because they got offended with something I said to them. But they never said to me what it was directly.

    Most of people who I cut off from my life were people who I had almost never talked after years, people who I feel never cared and suddenly decided to ignore me.

    Conflicts are part of life. There are people that we don't like and vice-versa. There are people with who we will have more difficulties. I love my mother but she is one of the people with I have problems ( she is a leo ).

    I had some problems with some leos. Never had with scorpios till today.

    I tend to have more conflicts with aquarius people in general because of my nature ( I am introverted and not a sociable like many of they are ), I don't call acquaintances friends as they do, they are cold in general, I don't like small talk, it sucks to me to talk only about intelectual things most of the time, etc.

    This truly describes my mother in law... a libran, very indecisive and diplomatic woman. Knows how to stifle desires of family members and how to act innocent and to play mind games. These people are very good at socializing, but have lack of sincerity when it comes to their own family members. They are willing to feed the whole town, but will make their family member go hungry.

    Wow u r such a rude person , most of the ppl I've met with are librans , and though every zodiac sign has a good and bad, what you are doing is creating a negative mental image in minds of people about the librans. Its true they can be aggressive but they cool down as easily and have a golden gerat which cares extremely about the people they hold near and dear . What you did up there is like you have a personal vendetta against librans and that's so wrong.

    Hmm, as a Libra I can relate to some of this but I'm only detached because my emotions run deep and I'm scared to show my vulnerability. (Moon in Scorpio) I do have a slightly tendency to vent on, just like your co-worker did but like I said I don't want people to know anything about me. Though, this could explain the reasoning behind a Libra moon's actions. I saw this more in Libra moons. I don't like conflict but I'm not afraid to start it and end it because you know that's life. If I think I have a good reason, I'll do it (Mars in Virgo). This was a good read, more of a constructive criticism. I am cold in relationships but crave physical affections (Venus in Libra). I can see where you make certain points. Though, I'd love to save the world and bring joy to everyone's day, I need to focus on my needs first because then I project that better. If I'm not there for me, who will be? (Libra Sun combined with a Scorpio rising)

    Hello, Lulu. Thank you for your post. Two stars classically belonging to Scorpio (called the North and South Claws) were given over to the constellation Libra in 1930. This accounts for Librans retaining several Scorpionic traits; you might even be, in classical terms, a triple Scorpio!

    You're very welcome, Sylvia and thanks for replying to my post!

    And wow, that's interesting. Another thing is I share birthdays with Judge Judy so that Scorpion energy is very heavy around that time, as well.

    Another eye-opening information that I read on your article was that Libras have a tendency to see others as mindless and themselves as more enlightened. I noticed I kinda do this unconsciously but it's not intentional, I enjoy helping people and educating them. It's probably an ego trip lol

    Also, how does a Libran balance out that pain they repress in a healthy way? We do tend to shut them off and find unconventional ways to deal with them.

    This exactly describes my soon-to-be ex-wife' s negative side. She is controlling, cold, puts forth no emotional effort, is mentally abusive to me and our two boys, cannot use conflict constructively, and seems to wait for what she "deserves" to fall into her lap because she can't be bothered to put forth any effort. She is a leech and a psychic vampire. I can't believe I fell for her fake charm 12 years ago. I moved out almost 1 year ago and, after 11 years of marriage, she has not once told me she misses me or that we should try to work it out. I guess she is waiting for me to "fix" myself so we can get back together-ain't gonna happen! I love my boys, but I am sorry I had kids with her because she is abusive and repressed.

    Virgo here. This story here may not be in order because I have so much to talk about. I have been with a libra woman for five years. It was right after my divorce. She had a kid that was 2 and mine was also 2. At the very beginning this gurl treated me like I was her world and I treated her like she was my queen. Then I start noticing that she wants to control everything around me. Even comes in between my child and his mother. She did not want me to get along with her. So I told her that us bringing this issue between us is not healthy. I thought I had taking care of that but I didn't. 5yrs later she was still talking about it.

    She was married once and have a 15yr old daughter. Before she met me. She left her with the ex husband claiming that she wanted a better life and career. Then with her job, she moves from state to states dating around people. Then she met another dude while she was having an affair with a married man then got pregnant by the new guy. The new guy went out and cheated on her with tones of women and the wife of the husband had also found out about the affair. Then she moved to another state where we met.

    She never told me about her had an affair, she claimed that the guy never told her that he was married. Then out of no where one day, the wife messaged me then that's when I put the whole story together in my head. Asked her about it, she denied it.

    Anyways, I can never communicate any issues with her. She is always blaming me or saying it's my fault. She never care for her sons school activities. She has anyone or anybody babysitting him. I feel so sorry for the kid.

    Also, she has this ego problem 5hat I can't stand.

    She always wanted to spend money that we don't have then complaining that I need to work more or she needs to work more

    She never satisfied, she now keeps her friends away from me. We are at a point, where she wants to do whatever she wants to do and I'm not allowed to ask.

    Had I knew this about libras, I would of tried working things out with my ex wife instead. Because to me a family Foundation comes first.

    I want to feel proud of my accomplishments when I am 60 and 70

    Looking ahead. I think that she will be one lonely person. She will be dating and doing this dudes but little does she know that karma is a bitch and life gets harder as you get older and still living a life like you are 21 forever

    My last girlfriend was a libra, she was just like that. She say yes to you but did what she wanted at the end behind my back. She was an escort I realized. She was her entire life and she used her charm and quiet to put everybody in trouble. When I confronted her she used to say: I do not know, I do not know. Shaking her head. Never answered for anything, always playing the victim and running away to find out she just went to get drunk and laid until next day.

    Hello 7 months ago

    I find this article very interesting. I'm a Libra, too. Let me tell you, it's hard to read, because I feel so guilty when I hurt someone I care about and/or make mistakes.

    I beat myself over it, to the point where I'm stuck in shame and guilt.

    Every sign has its positive and negative qualities. The tough part is to stare in the mirror at your own soul and evaluate where growth is needed and where your shadow side is prevailing.

    I can be controlling, passive-aggressive, late, insensitive, and then I alternate between being detached and clingy. Let me tell you, it's hard to see your own pattern on behaviors and I'm just beginning to see mine.

    To the folks on here who have had abusive parents, my heart goes out to you. Rather than concentrate on the abuser and their sun sign, what can you do to heal? Perhaps even forgive? Because the odds are likely that these people were abused too, as children, but other sun-signs. And they were abused children, too.

    I've been abused by a Scorpio, Virgo, and Sag. You know what sun sign I became the most bitter towards? An Aries, who absolutely did a number on me and broke my heart.

    For a while, I wouldn't touch an Aries with a 100' pole. Now, I'm past the pain.

    Remember, our sun sign is merely one aspect of our natal chart and we as souls also have malleable egos that undergo change through our upbringing and experiences.

    i hate libras 6 months ago

    I swear I'm making a note objective after years of analysis and hearing the testimonies of many people. Libra is a sign that exploits the very positive stereotype given to them in many articles, but and a big but. This is not true ! They are the most hypocritical people, will never hear the truth from them. They are popular works as well and everything that motivates them is to please themselves under the guise of providing the other. They are manipulators, competitive sickeningly beneath the surface,

    Their status is important to them before everything, even before their family, they are treacherous and chasing sickly, dressing up as those who are fans so they do not have their own character, for them there is nothing to admire a man who slept with many girls, not considered to be a man, not cool - This is the person they imitate every day and every day until they meet someone greater than him in this field is very shallow, and thus inherently boring dressing up as other people, are subject in any depth,

    Are looking for the meaning of life, the chronically lazy and manipulate the environment to work for them.

    But the best thing I sickening Libra is that they always find a patsy to do their dirty work, who come out worst in their name but unconsciously. I'm Aquarius and many followed after constellations Libra and always pretended I did not notice, but they are so careful people!

    I agree with Jcassar for the most part.

    Although I do see some parts of the negative traits, for me personally, I think some of these listed seem exaggerated to highlight the most negative Libras out there.

    I was a bit indecisive in my younger younger years. I will admit that. But, because I get impatient and irritated at other people's indecisiveness, I learned to make quick decisions and move on.

    After more than four decades, I have realized that II much more prefer the company and friendship of other fellow Librans. And just reading some of the negative opinions and attacks on Libras by others here, it just reaffirms my choice.

    I avoid confrontations and drama if at all possible. I strongly dislike negativity and conflict. I am loyal and very protective of my friends and loved ones. I try to always be fair and give everyone a fair chance.

    Unfortunately, some people are selfish, insensitive, and don't know how to value a sincere person like myself. When that happens, I've learned to respect myself and just move on. Friendship and respect are a two-way street. I highly value: integrity, loyalty, honesty, and friendship. It seems not every one is on the same page though. That only helps to make it clear that those people are not compatible and I don't want them in my life.

    Prefer Librafriends 6 months ago

    Some of you seem quite bitter and let your insecurities show by bashing Libras. I think the problem is that you were too selfish and judgemental instead of taking the time and making a genuine effort to get to know and understand a Libra better, you chose to ASSume, criticize, demean, and judge someone you never really got to know. Most Libras are quick to put a wall up to protect themselves from insecure, jealous, judgemental, negative, condescending people who attack them. Remember there are THREE sides to every story: yours, theirs, and the TRUTH.

    You may want to look in the mirror first.

    I much rather have Libra friends, lovers, co-workers, or acquaintances than any other sign.

    I'm kind of upset these dark sides don't match me.

    One of them that you should really fear about my dark side are my games that I put you in (you are my pawn and will always be until I get my revenge or I hear an apology if not you'll never be out of my loop until you're gone or I am)

    If you cross my line you're already in the game of life or death for me. Warning signs. I will never approach you or talk to you because I already gotten more than a 1k people that you know and I know on my side. So good luck living.

    Yes I do get angry and yes I get angry a lot sometimes. It all depends on what you do and what you don't do also my mood. When I get angry I yell and scream but if it gets worst I start getting physical and it's scary.

    I once got angry at one of my siblings and I zoned out while I was close to their neck to chock them. I didn't thank god my parents were there to snap me out of it.

    Yes I am extremely lazy bit I am actually thinking of ways to understand some concepts an etc. In my head and finding out how my mind games are going in my head.

    I'm a virgo male and married a female libra. While we were dating i let her know about my one true longtime best friend which was my first ex (gemini)from high school yrs (different schools). We were close like family and talked a lot on the phone and only during work hours(my choice after we started dating in 2000). We have been doing that since 1989 to 2004 we did hookup a few times before 1996 none since then no longer felt right. Godfather to her daughter and son her parents never had. Met my wife in early 2000. We talked on the work phone but never in person 1997 till 2002 and just to show her the engagement ring and never since. My wife told me how she was teased a lot coming up and I was did all I could to show her how much I loved her. Well long story longer I could not invited my best friend and family to my own wedding I'm hurt didn't phase her. I found out later they talked on the phone after my wife told me. My wife had even made a threat to her so while all this was happening behind my back, bad blood was gushing between guess who? Bingo my libra wife and my libra wife. My friend never said a single word ever. That libra bad moon came out PURE EVIL . She wanted me to turn on my friend and hurt her, did didn't fly with me I'm grown and 3yrs older. Libra bad moon stubborn teased low self esteem actually turned her murderist( real word or not) me being a virgo male and 1000% honest our whole relationship I had no secrets. I let her Stew in her own poop made it worst. She invited my best friend over to the house for a business presentation but did admit it was no good purpose. The cat she got for us 1month before she moved in liked me more than her so we got 1 more so they could play together that failed dead cat. 1 ultimatum don't talk to my best friend anymore. Grow up wife. 2 more kids but from 2004 till upcoming divorce cold as ice towards me crazy. What ever happened in her head destroyed her. She took the kids and tried to move into a shelter and she didn't even know why. Libra females are lost of words. She doesn't have money or a job with 3 kids luckily I still support my kids and back to her parents house. She thinks I walked out on her? What The.

    10/17 libra seeking balance 5 months ago

    I am a Libra male and lately I have been feeling disconnected from myself(sign). Mostly because most things I read about Libras don't feel like they connect with me. Most things are always flowery in tone.

    I searched out an article like this to better understand myself. I am a only child also raised by a Libra mother. So to say my ability to maintain connection is fucked is putting it mildly. It sux to say but all these dark traits are traits I have observed in myself to some degree (some more than others) and I feel it growing. Things seem to be falling apart around me. Irritability is the worst part I hate about myself. I have zero desires to be a negative libra but honestly don't how to turn it around or even if I can.

    Some people agreeing with this in its whole has proven they know and strongly dislike a certain libra in their life, and have no reason to disagree because of the obvious pain THAT negative libra has caused. Of course all us libra aren't like that and have EVERY negative trait. I don't particularly like this post but that's because it just doesn't fit me personally. But I can agree when there's a negative personality and it's fixated on the sign some ppl are going to agree.

    I have good traits, and some of those bad traits, am I happy with them?! No.

    It is build up frustration, anger and pain, because you once were nice, and understood and accepted ppl by the way they are, but we seem to have to mold, like we aren't good enough...

    Well, I that feel that my negative side is taking over at the moment, don't really enjoy it, I'm not in peace, I cry when I'm alone, think that I just wanna die, it's like I'm out of place .... All I wanted was ppl to accept me the way I accept ppl by the way they are, and for example stop wondering if what I say to a 3rd person upsets my partner, etc...

    Maybe, some ppl here commenting on bad libras, we aren't perfect we're humans, and we libras look for balance (apologies for wrong methods to achieve such) , but maybe try to find the reason behind such behaviour and maybe you can help... We aren't that stubborn!

    I'm a libra myself. But damn I've definitely never seen an article talking so badly about us Librans! People should understand that not every Libran is the same. They may share common general characteristics but that's it. All that's left (like the bad traits mentioned above which seemed to me like traits of a dangerous personality disorder) is formed depending on countless variables (the way one was raised, experiences etc..) we do have a dark side, but we don't all react the same way. In fact the way one reacts to whatever angers them is much more beyond a zodiac sign. Reactions are learned through experience and habit, you are not born with a certain way of reacting due to a zodiac sign. This article is way too shallow for the most part. And I do know many people who fit this above profile but are not Librans and also not related to Libra in general. So this article is in no way 10% correct describing how a Libra is like when wronged. It is overly exaggerated. So now every Libran is a bad parent? Mother, father, uncle whatever..that's ridiculous. There are many bad parents and abusers, even family murderers with different zodiac signs. And what's described in the article is more like a personality disorder, rather than a dark side. Seems to be written by someone who had a bad experience with a Libran and conluded that all Librans are like that one scumbag they once knew..horrible.

    Freaking true to the core. I was cohabitating with one under her suggestion and without a thought (being a male & feeling totally cloud 9 to be asked), I experienced a life changing event. I took my life out of utter mental & emotional meltdown. Did not tap out because I do not believe in giving up easily in love. Or so I thought. Boy was I so wrong and regretted holding on for so long. Mind & heart got twisted in and out 24/7 till I broke down entirely. Thank God doctors brought me back alive. Everyday, physical pain reminds me of how manipulative, hypocritical, cynical and deceptive she can be. And to think I still stood by her EVEN when I was admitted and discharged till her demented form comes devouring me inside out again!!! I SWEAR NEVER to go near this monsterous scale bearer again EVER in my living, breathing life. Libra is hopelessly disillusioned with her own actions & behaviour. I was a fool sheltering her from all her accusers but they were actually right all along. I was a big fool. Curse you Libra for messing men's life everywhere you go. You should have gone to the shrink when he asked you to!

    i can tell you my mother is a libra and this fits her to a t. she made my life a living hell. she physically, verbally, emotionally, and spiritually abused me as far back as i can remember. when i say spiritual abuse, she was always in to some different religion even witchcraft at one point. which was when i was very young. i can not even begin to describe the hell she put me through. she is a full blown malignant narcissist. i am in my 40's and i have went total no contact with her on several times. i am currently in no contact, but this time it is for good. nothing was her fault. she abused me because she didnt know any better. i was a good kid. there was no pleasing her no matter what i did. she was so nice to outsiders but treated my family and dad like dirt. on the rare times i could have a friend over she was sooo nice like she wanted them to like her. i would wonder why she never was nice to me. my friends would say your mom is so nice. god if they had only known. i ended up living a lot of my life with my grandmother because my mom would not stop physically abusing me. she would rage out. im not saying all libras are like this but my mother certainly is. she is to this day. im sure its not just the libra in her, she is a narcissist. my brother and daughter are both libra and my brother has 3 boys. he is nothing like my mom. he is a great father and husband. but when i read this i was like wow. my libra daughter who is 17 has buddied up with my libra mother and she doesnt understand the evil in my mother. i have never told her. i hope she can just control herself from now on and never treat my daughter the way she treated us. she has never ever apologized to me and never will. she just says she did the best she could. other than my mom, i love libras!!!

    I'm a Libran and I all I care about is love . I love so deeply and I treat my man like he's a god hoping to get that amount of attention in return but it never happens. I've been in two long relationships with Aquarius and Gemini , they are supposed to be the best compatible signs with libra but not in my case , they care too much about their parents and careers more than the woman they love. I don't care about anything when I'm happily in love. I ignore my family my friends and my work. I do whatever makes my lover happy just to keep the harmony and passion between us. That's my fuel. But now I discovered that I gave everything to the wrong people. My family and friends are being very supportive while my lover soon to be my ex is just busy with his new job. I feel that 2015/ 2016 were the worst years of my life. And I don't want to become a mother after all I read here , It's a big responsibility that I can't handle I'm very fragile and need someone to constantly take care of me. I'm 28 years old , born on September 27 and I wish I can hear stories of girls who share the same birthday with me as I need some answers. I want to know what's going wrong because I'm doing all the right things but all I'm getting is disappointment.

    This was an interesting read. I'm a Libra Sun with a Libra Ascendant. I'm going to be very honest, I was pretty ruthless with my ex wife, especially in the latter part of our marriage. Here's why. I was married to a Virgo woman, one who heavily did the virgo thing which is pessimistically driven to chastise and be judgmental to the end. I know that sounds brash, and probably just as bad as how Librans have been painted on here, but there is a very specific driving force as to why I acted the way that I did, and it's because of how how she treated my children. I've been blessed with a moon in Leo, for all of those with Leo in their charts, you know that means firey devotion on a different scale. For me, it was to my defend my kids and anytime she went past the line of reason in punishing them, I was right there to invoke the one thing Librans are good at, utilizing and that is our rather sharp tongue. They say Librans hate conflict and that we shy away from them, that's what others see, but what they don't realize is that we're fighting not to open our mouths out of psychologically, emotionally and spiritually dismantling you on the spot. There is a reason why they say Librans make good judges, its because we are able to take every situation or event and tear it down to it's nuts and bolts to see what's really within. We don't use emotions to figure things out, we don't use tactile sensory to figure things out, it's about all that is mental and the air signs are especially built for this. The Native American totem of the Libran time frame is the Raven. They said that the raven people were feared in the tribes because they always new what was going on without hearing a word, they always knew. We work from the shadows, you'd figure that would be a Scorpio thing being ruled by Pluto, but despite being ruled by Venus, our (hermit) like needs tend to make us more powerful in our endeavors when we are in solitude to let our mental powers loose. By the way, those of you who had Libran parents that treated you like garbage, what's your sign? My children I mentioned earlier just so happen to be a gemini girl and a sagittarian boy. Even though they do love their mother, greatly, their elemental make up naturally gravitates towards mine, only on the basis that we understand each other on a level she will never understand, she is a Virgo sun/Cancer moon. They will never make her needs for materialistic stability happy, nor her emotional driven self to be happy. Like a few here said earlier, there's more to the picture about the signs, you have to look at the sum total of your chart. One Libran is not going to be the same as the other. One of my best friends is a Libra with a moon in Pisces. He is probably one of the shitiest father's of met, however, I am one of the most fatherly/tribal individuals you'll ever meet. So don't take the (general) layout of the Libra to heart, it's only one sliver of what variations there can be about the Libra. I'm super proud to be one.

No the world doesnt work that way and i found libra needs to work on the skill of identifying if someone is taking advantage of them or if they really care for them.. just think I know libra its really hard to say no when someone say or ask for something so just..... look out for people who keep asking for stuff and then u will know that they are just using you... then leave them in the dust and dont look back...and if they keep on nagging or something then idk but for me i just get detached from them and completly just dont wanna talk to them so just yea look out for people asking for too much stuff or telling you to do something you dont wanna do then you will know that they are horrible people and just dont fall for their tricks anymore..

    Really? 3 months ago

    Guys you are reading an article about the DARK SIDE of Libra, of course you are going to read a lot of bad things! This just says a lot. Every astrology reading sugarcoats signs like Libra so it must be that shocking for you. There are bad people, no matter which sign they are, and your sign is not inmune to that evilness.

    I'm a Libra with lots of planets in Scorpio. This article was accurate about "some" of my dark traits. Muahahahaha ;)~

    Hm. I am pretty sure there are killers of all signs...and actually if you've only found 5 twisted people in Libra, that in fact disproves your point.

    I can agree with some of the second parts of statements: e.g. yes, avoiding confrontation is not a tenable objective and will lead to outbursts (what's term in the title- yes, repressed); people born in October avoid confrontation, no = can't be proven. (Of course I'm born in October haha...I happen to be controlling indeed toward those who get closer to me; in the work-social arena...a combination of practicality- choosing your battles- and impracticality - picking battles you can't win, just to make a point, I do that too. And sometimes I just make fun of people- for instance if they make racist comments and I'm just having a beer on Sunday night, instead of punching them in the face I get this attitude of smiling from ear to ear, looking them straight in the eye and and making them feel like shit. But then again, it's for a good cause...?).

    Libras are the nicest people of all the signs until you rub us the wrong way.

    I am supposed to get along with this sign but it is the one I like the least. I get along with Virgos and Scorpios just fine.

    This is very true about Libras. Don't let their "niceness" fool you. I have a Libra "friend" that I grew up with and I thought she was the nicest person but now I realize how untrue that is. She is conniving, manipulative and a backstabber. She uses people and shes a know it all. I used to call her a best friend but she is far from it. Shes ugly on the inside and on the outside and she's vain for no reason.

    Libra who met the dark side 7 weeks ago

    I'm a libra. And I know there's a dark side but I'm not a dark person. However I met a libra and she's like me but diffrent. The shadows are her home! This describes her to a T. I couldn't wrap my head around it because I'm not like that. Thank you. This helped.

    As someone that has done a lot of astrology reading I can admit I know some of these traits can be very true of a libra.

    but....... I have to say you have gone out of your way to taint this sign more so than they deserve and more so than your other dark side write ups. I must agree with fellow commentors that your distaste for this sign is merely a reflection of your own negativity and distorted observations.

    You look and sound evil and very quite bitter. If your not a "capricunt" you have the face and attitude for one.

    And I'm not even a libra.

    Yes I do throw tantrums and become manipulative but only when I am wronged and taken advantage of for a long time. My behavior is actually a slight reflection of yours. Off course, I am not going to vent on strangers when I am wronged by a close one as it will not be justified. Nor I will treat my closed ones badly if I had a bad day. Yes I can be dark by being extremely lazy and indecisive but everyone has got a dark side. I love, appreciate, care and support all those close ones who accept and love me for who I am. I also appreciate the creativity of this author by portraying Libra's negative image since I was really bored of those charming and peaceful stories about Libras .....cheers and peace
