The Dark Side of a Libra Male: The Twisted Version of Harmony and Beauty
Harmony and beauty: what excellent concepts, and yet how wrong they can go in the hands of the bad Libra man. Indecisiveness and vanity are three ways this star sign can go down the wrong road.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) men are generally kind, gentle, and romantic. They are diplomatic, always know how to keep the room's harmony, and work for a crowd with their enamoring charm. They have a great need for justice worldwide and are intelligent and humorous. These are only a vast few of this man's many positive attributes.
That said, their need for harmony and beauty can trip them up in many ways if they don't heed how they use it in the world. Indecisiveness, people pleasing and

Struggles to Make Decisions
Libra men are harmony-hooked. It is easier for him to decide if he has thought of every aspect and how it will be the most balanced. If he eventually makes one, he will, in all likelihood, still be anxious about whether he chose the correct cause of action.
This can slow down his life course, especially regarding careers or relationships. He may take too long to decide whether to commit, only to realize it's too late when they are gone. He may not know what route to take at work, and his indecisive action will count against his productivity and what his co-workers, especially his superiors, might think of him.
These men need to learn that no decision is perfect. Every single choice we make comes with a bit of risk, no matter how good it seems, and there is always a leap of faith involved. They can use their talents to create harmony in that space wherever they land.

Passive & People Pleasing
Once again, their indecisive nature can lead them toward passivity. As they struggle to make the decisions, they may eventually conclude that they will let life take them where it may go. Once again, this will cause them to fall behind in life or, by proxy, manifest a life with which they don't particularly resonate.
This passiveness particularly applies to their relationships when it comes to avoiding conflicts. As they can not deal with a discordant social situation, they will struggle to engage in conflict.
As a result, tensions will grow, and the Libra man will become increasingly happy and passive-aggressive. Eventually, these bonds will rot away from a slow unsaid rotting that occurs underneath the surface, or an explosion from the Libra. This may, to the other party, be completely unexpected.

In the long-term, this is the opposite of harmonious; if they haven't already, Libra men should learn or realize the truth.
Superficial, Shallow & Self-Indulgent
We all love a beautiful view, artwork, and, yes, an attractive person, but the Libra man can take this to a toxic place. If they are positive in their outlook, they will feed their appreciation for aesthetics with art, fashion, and the beauty of sunrises.
However, they could go in the opposite direction and focus so much on indulging this inclination by overly focusing on their looks and images. While there is nothing wrong with looking after oneself, this Libra man will spend an unhealthy amount of hours preening and looking in the mirror.

They may also go to great lengths to keep up appearances even if they need to twist the truth. At parties, they may claim they got a promotion when, in the meantime, their boss just gave them a compliment in passing.
They will go out of their way to post multiple pictures on social media, showing off how perfect their life is, or at least that's what they want other people to think.
Don't be surprised if you spend half the day out with the Libra man, taking pictures for Instagram in every possible location. Prepare for a photo-op for the food and drinks when you go out for dinner.

Beyond this, this star sign can be highly superficial. They are usually entirely giving individuals, but sometimes, the allure of life's luxuries may ultimately draw them away from that headspace. Now, other people don't exist, only beauty, riches, and status.
The Libra may put his happiness first, no matter how much others need their help. He may not think twice about walking away from a situation that doesn't benefit him, even if he is hurting someone. This star sign may also be unaware of the needs of those around him as he is so focused on himself. To him, his problems and needs are always above everyone else's.

Harmony and beauty do sound like endearing values. Yet, if one doesn't look out for how they express themselves, they could end up with an unsatisfying life, a shallow existence, and difficult or toxic relationships.
That said, if it is used constructively, it can fashion excellent results. Groups of individuals living within a harmonious space, incredibly productive and beautiful relationships, an eye for beauty in the strangest things, and a life whole of art and music.
Of course, it's not only the Libra men who have a dark side. Read: The Dark Side of a Libra Female: The People Pleaser With No Direction.
