|Libra September 22 - October 21|
Libra, as befits the sign of the Scales, revers balance and harmony above all. If this can be achieved with a partner, even better, for Libra rules the House of Partnerships and revels in things that come in twos. The Scales are sociable and shine in social situations, where their gift of communication is an attraction to many. Librans also want to be liked, even loved, by those who cross their path, and it can be very hard to resist the Scales when they are at their most charming and magnetic selves. It's not unusual for Librans to possess an easy grace and sense of style and move languidly throughout a room. Behind that pretty facade is a smart, often smoldering soul who knows how to get what they want, and would love nothing more than to do so fairly and justly. When the Scales find the partner they've been searching for, it could be a match made in hot heaven.
"Make love, not war" is a phrase which must have been coined with a Libra in mind. Those born under this sign love to talk and find agreement with a partner as opposed to angrier alternatives. Romance for these folks can often be a sexy tug-of-war, with Libra letting someone get close but not too close. Courtship where Libra is concerned is a beautiful affair, as befits someone ruled by Venus, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure. Hearts and flowers are a must, and Libras showered with a sea of beautiful things are likely to be most receptive to amorous entreaties. While Libras can appear cool, calm, even aloof to a lover, they are incredibly playful and romantic once they relax. A lover who plays fair is a must for Libra; if not, subtle manipulations, despite the Scales' best effort, may surface.
Where the Scales are concerned, they love looking at all sides of an issue and can easily "walk a mile in another man's shoes." This kind of magnanimous outlook is a boon in relationships and makes those born under this sign a pleasure to deal with in the give and take of affairs of the heart. As befits their beautiful world, Librans love to be loved and lusted after, although they may initially do so from a safe distance (at least internally). Talk about teasing! Even so, in a relationship, Librans can alternate between being the dependant and dominant partner, based in part on what their sense of fair play tells them. Above all, the diplomatic-to-a-fault Libra would rather not argue with their lover, preferring instead to talk things out in the hopes of achieving sybaritic harmony. The ideal Libra soulmate talks a great game and has the confidence (and dazzling good looks) to deliver the goods.
There is no doubt that Libras enjoy being in love and the sexy, shimmery sheen which this blessed state can bring. Love is a beautiful affair for the Scales, and as one who admires beauty in themselves and others and seeks pleasure, it's hard to imagine a better place to be. A Libran is a stylish conquest and as such, can make the art of love a sensual state for both partners. Librans tend to prefer a lover stronger than them, perhaps one who can teach them about themselves and help make them a more evolved lover. It's all in keeping with the Scales' desire to appear fair and do what's best for everyone.
Sex is often mental for Air signs, and Libra is no exception. These great communicators are possessed of a strong intellect, and these mental fireworks often manifest themselves in the thorough exploration of a lover. Only the brave need apply! Since the Scales like to be in balance, though, they are often thinking of what both partners want. A marked distaste for confrontation can sometimes be perceived as disinterest on Libra's part, but it's more often just a deep-down desire to please. Libras love foreplay and plenty of talk leading to some hot action. If this is all achieved in the right, luxurious setting, watch out! Scales which are swathed in riches are a pleasure to behold. Libra loves the thought of a gifted and attractive partner, since they feel their partner is receiving just that. Safe to say that a little erotica goes a long way with the Scales, since these folks can be oh-so-playful with their toys.
What Libra Needs
The partner who can encourage Libra to be honest, open, trusting and free is on the right track. The Scales crave someone who can give them feedback and support, and affirm that they are a treasure to behold. Wooing them with gifts can be the right stimulant. Some long talks, along with a lesson in give-and-take, can also work wonders. Anyone who can bring Libra to an open state, who can get them to think less and feel more, will be rewarded with a grateful and passionate lover. The Libra lover is a harmonious soul who adores love, beauty and the romance dance. Anyone who can take this pleasure principle and make it seductively mental is bound to be at the top of their list. Blissfully partnered Libras exude a sex appeal which is off the charts!
