What does each shape "weigh"

It's not possible because the triangle must weigh the same as the hexagon and the rhombus, while having the two diamonds on the right side with the rhombus, so it would have more weight on the right side due to the additional weight that the two diamonds create.

UNLESS, the diamonds are weightless.

Assumption#1 where all the left has to equal the right is the triangle is 2, circle is 20, hexagon is 8, parallelogram is 4 and the diamonds are 1.

Assumption#2 where the bottom has to equal the top is triangles are 2, circle is 18, hexagon is 6, parallelogram is 4 and diamonds are 3.

All assuming the length of the lines doesn't matter.

It's in space, and weight is meaningless.

*Assuming that wherever there is an intersection, everything on the left is equal to the right(including the intersections that only have one shape on either side, ex. the triangle and the hexagon in the middle left section). 

Triangle=1

Hexagon=1

Rhombus/parallelogram=1

Diamond=0

Circle=5

the circle is 11 times heavier than the triangle

If the circle is 11x heavier then the triangle then this could be one possibility.

bottom wouldn't balance (left side is 12 and right side 18) on your diagram Bailey

ohh if that second triangle on the bottom counts as the right side then the diamonds equal 1 and the hexagon equals 12 in that diagram
