As already mentioned, Libra is a paradox, for in spite of their incredible intuitive powers, they listen closely to others and are easily swayed to abandon their sense of things by logical argument. Librans can also put a great deal of effort into creating a harmonious environment, particularly at home, only to become miserable when those they care about take it all for granted. Librans give so much to others with such sincerity that when they are neglected they become dissatisfied and morose, and they can also be very sensitive about having their tuition criticized or maligned.
