Each sign is represented by some kind of living thing with the exception of Libra. Libra is the only inanimate object in the zodiac.
I'd like to know what you think about it. :68:

I dont know what to really say about it other than being a Libra balances out the zodiac, so to speak.
You are right, no representation from an animal or human shape, the libra person is represented by a set of scales. It would seem fitting to me that the zodiac would need a sign to represent balance, as life, represented by other zodiac signs, needs a balance in order to thrive and succeed for future generations.
Not to offend anyone, but the scales to me represents the book of life in the bible where each is judged according to what we have done in order to recieve everlasting life in heaven with God.
I will say time and time again, that if God created the heavens and the earth, who is to say that we cannot study what happens on earth, as things happen in the heavens/sky. Nonetheless,
So we have a zodiac, each sign represented by a living thing, thus we need a scale, one to judge, keep a fair balance of integrity between all of the living things. As Libra is also seen as the scales of heaven, so is the Libran individual here to bring balance and harmony to the living zodiac.
I believe all 12 signs all are important in their own way.
An interesting idea though!

No offence to anyone but l really love Libras as friends but in an intimate relationship l wanna strangle them from the word go! They drive me crazy with all the indecision... probably doesn't help that Libra is opposite all my Aries but still... it's a real problem. My ex husband is Libra rising and he drove me insane with his half an hour slow motion explanations and if you asked him at 9am what he was going to do that day, the day would almost be over by the time he replied LOL
aaarrrrrrggggghhhhhh :D :D :D

My experience with Libras is that they are very flirty, fun....like the other end of a Scorpio man, where he is literally enchanting. Both of them really get to me, but Libra's more so on a superficial level. My first boyfriend was a Libra, which was bad, because they are literally in love with love. The first week he was talking to me about marriage, kids and being together forever; I was sixteen at the time and could not distinguish between fact from fiction. So I was taken with him. I believe he must have had many taurean factors as he was a bit posessive, like I was his. I am a Gemini, and we had so many things to share and talk about.

The Scales are not inanimate at all. They are in constant motion as they continually weigh and balance.

It has also taken my interest that Libra is the only sign represented by an inanimate object. By extension, can Libra have significance over man-made things in general? What do man made objects symbolise in general? Has this something to do with 'karma'?
Libra is completely devoid of conciousness, which is as good as it is a bad thing. I don't consider it to be a 'humane' sign at all, it isn't human. It's all things to all beings. Libra is those forces set in motion that there is nothing that we can do to alter or divert. If I drop a stone it will hit the ground, a process ruled over by Libra, which is all processes of karma and universal law.
When it comes to the categorisation of signs, such as the water signs being 'mute' for example, because each of the creatures representing these signs are incapable of producing sound, it occurs to me that Libra should also be considered mute, in that it has no voice either (unless the scales need oiling), but that Libra should also be considered to be lame, deaf and blind also. I think there is a lot of approprite symbolism in considering Libra to be 'blind', as justice and love, both Libra concerns, are said to be blind also. Further to the Libran symbolism of blindness, Libra is the sign in which the Sun (which grants the ability to see), enters it's fall, the light begins to fail, the natural world turns it's mind to slumber and we are plunged from then on, into the darkness.
