In astrology, Venus is the planet which rules our love style. The zodiac sign occupied by Venus at the time of your birth describes how you express your affection for others as well as the things in life you take the greatest pleasure in. In short, it shows how you love and what you love. 

If Venus is in Libra for you, then that can translate to mean that you are easy to be with and a dynamic talker. You have good manners and show balanced consideration across the board like leaving a fair tip in the restaurant. You are graceful, charming, an elegant dresser and probably do not like to use obscene words. Sometimes you veer toward people-pleasing, which can look empty if only meant to avoid an argument.

Cardinal Quality and Air Element

Venus in Libra shares the cardinal qualities and air element. Libra as a cardinal sign means that you will not find a cardinal person slacking off. Cardinal signs are full of vim and vigor and possess a drive and ambition that is unmistakable. Enthusiasm and a zest for life fill the cardinal individual.

Libra as the element of air, means this sign gives you room to breathe, widens your lungs, and as an air sign, you have a strong need to feel liberated and free.

In Love and Romance

If Venus is in Libra that can mean that you are a true romantic at heart, and thrive when in a committed, loving partnership. Even if you seem emotionally detached, you are prone to quickly merging lives, and sometimes it is too much, too soon. You are looking for someone with whom to be more than the sum of your parts. You will instinctively know if a potential lover balances you out or makes you better. At home, you like a calm, pleasing environment. If you press against your mate, it will likely be because you see room for improvement. Like with Libra in other planets, this Venus is able to unlock the sexual passion of others. In the bedroom, you are gifted at creating a romantic mood, and will likely go for all the enhancers, like candles, music, silk sheets and fresh flowers.

Strong Magnetism

If Venus is in Libra for you, then chances are that you have got style, and you know it. You know how to put people at ease, and this quickly endears you to a potential partner. As part of a twosome, you are at home, and this can make the other feel like part of something intimate and special. You are witty, mentally clear and tactful. You know when to move in and when to create distance.

What You Look for in a Mate

You respond to the power of a person's ideas and love to be wowed by smart people. You are looking for the total package and may seem detached while sizing up a potential mate. You are drawn to good-looking, intelligent, well-mannered people and will feel cheated if you think you have settled for less. You admire those that champion the cause of justice and are turned off by snobby, brash or arrogant people.

Your Friendship Style

At the party, you are the one meandering through the room with the tray of Cosmos and simultaneously introducing people to each other with the ease of a social pro. Your mind is clear, so friends value your insights and advice. When it ​comes to the give and take, you make sure things are balanced, and will make it right if it is not.
