It's like looking into a mirror and loving what you see. Early dates clue them in that they've found an intellectual equal. Manners, style, and a slightly detached modus operandi works its slow magic. Libra Suns know how to turn a phrase and stay mutually dazzled by the conversation. Mutually Dazzled Elegant dinners, rooftop soirees, film festivals followed by a Q & A—they'll make sure nights out are memorable and stimulating to the mind. Neither will hurry love, which gives the relationship the airy space it needs to flourish. What can possibly go wrong? The Libra dark side gives us a clue: If they both deny their untidy feelings, they could come out in a fury. Like Walking on Air The Libra soul mission is relating and discovering the self in what's reflected by the other. That makes them both committed to working things through and compromising when it serves the relationship. Together, they are two halves of a greater whole. Like all other matches, it works out better when they've also got a solid sense of self. Libra in love is generous, a fabulous listener, and sensitive to reactions. Libras are air signs, and it's worth looking at the dangers of too much air or too little. One is idealizing the other and then not being able to accept who the other really is. Too Much Togetherness? Libras have to guard against the "we do everything together" kind of codependency. It's important for each to remain individuals. Two Libras doing their own thing, with some separate friendships, have a lot to bring back and share at home. Libras have an instinct for balance in one-on-one relationships. Together, they navigate life with that built-in ability to create harmony. They like to keep to the high road, and this surrounds the relationship with an aura of dignity. Libra is ruled by Venus, so look into Venus in Libra for more ideas for amore. And what about the issue of avoiding conflict? If everything is glossed over, the tension builds until there's a potentially combustible relationship. A great achievement for two Libras is realizing they can go through messy, harsh, seriously unpleasant, and socially awkward times and make it out the other side. That's when the Libra-Libra love has staying power. The Art of Love As cardinal air, Libras are heavyweights in disguise. There's a secret about Libra, beyond the reputation for loving balance, and that's the urge to disrupt the harmony when it's too comfortable. Some Libra lovers want to see change and are willing to take the risk, to knock over the apple cart again and again. Libra's dark side is being manipulative and chronically dissatisfied with the way things are. When the social charm is used to get their way, at the expense of others, they start to get an evil reputation. It's often hard for Libra to see their dark side or even admit to having one. Some are like covert social operators, with the end goal always to see their fabulousness mirrored back in the eyes of others. All Love and Light? If the Libra-Libra pair conspires together to ignore the dark side, it's a matter of time before below-the-radar issues surface. But with the Libra gift for clear thinking and the courage to sit with emotionally untidy moments, these two can handle the rough patches. Two Libras endlessly mull things over, and this throws the decision-making process into chaos. But chances are, as they move ahead, this pair won't miss out on much. Around each corner are new fascinations to explore and discuss. Their home is a gathering place, where visitors feel that they're in good hands. The conversation flows, and so do the libations. They know how to set the tone for a gathering and share a love of all things social. Once committed, it's a love connection that usually lasts. Libras feel at home in relationships, especially with a mate as devoted to the union as they are. Upside: Two Libras put relationships first, love togetherness, charged conversation, a stylish appearance, wide social circles, ambition, the finer things in life. Downside: Two Libras both want rapt attention, are masters of avoiding conflict (even when necessary to grow), are sharp-tongued when cornered, seek admirers outside the relationship. Quality and Element Cardinal Air Libra and Libra Love Story If I would have been more... "I found in all the years in relationships, by far the Libra woman was the best. With me also being a Libra, we enjoyed so many things in the short relationship we had. I found that trust issues for both of us was huge and respected this in her, but sadly I lost my trust as she seemed to venture to others and more material things. I believed so in her words and did see actions, but fear stepped in, too, and a total change of heart left me confused and very hurt. I just hope that one day my words and actions did mean something to her. Love with this special soul was a wonder in its own, and I loved every minute of it."
