Upside: Two Libras put relationships first; love togetherness; charged conversation; are a stylish pair; enjoy wide social circles; are ambitious; adore 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 relationship.

Quality and Element Cardinal Air

 

Walking on Air

The Libra-Libra romance is a breeze. It's like looking into a mirror and loving what you see. Hey there good-looking!

Early dates clue them in that they've found an intellectual equal. Manners, style and a slightly detached modus operandi works its slow magic. They both know how to turn a phrase and stay mutually dazzled by the conversation.

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.

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.

But Libras have to guard against the 'we do everything together' kind of co-dependency. It's important for each to remain individuals, too. 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.

And what of the issue of avoiding conflict? If everything is glossed over, the tension builds until there's a potentially combustible relationship monster in the room. 

A pinnacle 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.

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. 

If the Libra-Libra pair conspire 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, discuss and opine about.

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 relationship, especially with a mate as devoted to the union as they are.
