Venus in Libra

Libra is all about balance; and the Venus in Libra person may have to struggle to find the right balance between a desire to be too accommodating to others and a conscious effort to counteract this by being over-assertive. This can make these people surprisingly awkward and self-conscious at times.

Generally polite and charming but rather cool, Venus in Libra people are usually socially skilled, although they may be so locked into being nice that it is hard to get to know them. They tend to feel very uncomfortable with people they don't like; and there is a tendency to overcompensate for the guilt of not liking them by being especially friendly towards them. This can often lead to misunderstandings and difficult situations which cause them even more discomfort. They cannot bear to say anything unpleasant to anyone, so they often go along with situations rather than being honest.

There is a great need for peace and harmony in relationships, and a dislike of crudeness and aggression. Those with Venus in Libra will feel unloved if people are not pleasant to them and considerate of their needs. Libra is attracted to people who have a certain refinement and grace and a rather quiet good taste - they dislike anything outrageous.

As a lover, the Venus in Libra person is considerate and fair, with a strong concern for the etiquette and conventions of relationships. However, these people can at times be over-solicitous, trying too hard to please, which can be irritating to their partners and make their relationships rather hollow and lacking in substance. However, they are gently romantic and genuinely caring lover who are very attentive and really enjoy pleasing their partners.

With Venus in Libra, there is a very deep need for someone to share life with, and it is sharing everything with that special other that brings them happiness.

Venus in Libra: You enjoy art and beauty in all their myriad forms, and want to fill your life with lovely things. Creative and sensitive to color, harmony and balance, you probably have artistic ability. Whether or not you are an artist yourself, you have an innate sense of aesthetics and are able to appreciate fine art, music, theatre, literature, etc.; and you might be a collector or patron of the arts.

Relationships of all kinds are central in your life. Friendly, gracious and good-natured, you have many friends and acquaintances, and love to socialize. Your manners are impeccable, and you are known for your diplomacy and tact. Able to get along with just about anyone, you are the perfect guest at social gatherings, the ideal co-worker, and a good friend to all.

You don't like being alone, and function best - personally and professionally - in partnerships. It is especially important to you to be involved in a love relationship at all times. For you, love make the world go 'round, and you aren't complete without a lover. However, you don't usually pursue a prospective partner actively; your way is to make yourself attractive, then sit back and wait for him / her to come to you. Your idea of love is moonlit nights, soft music, wine and roses, where everyone lives happily ever after. There's nothing sordid or tempestuous in your romantic fantasies.

Because love is vital to your happiness, you tend to place more emphasis on the relationship and your partner than on yourself. You are always ready to compromise to maintain the partnership, and to put your loved one's wellbeing in front of your own. Perhaps you don't even know what you really want, since your happiness is dependent upon your partner's; if she / he is satisfied, then so are you. You eagerly adopt your lover's interests, friends, beliefs, lifestyle, etc., and can be something of a chameleon.

You want everything about your relationships to be nice all the time, and can't stand arguments or anger. The consummate peacemaker, your motto might be 'don't make waves'. Thus, you rarely speak your mind or stand up for yourself in a relationship, for fear of causing friction or opposition. You'd rather go along to get along. Once involved in a relationship, you are faithful and loyal to your partner. Even if you aren't satisfied in the partnership, you are loathe to end it because you can't stand to make a scene or have anyone mad at you. You'd rather slip out through the back door when your mate isn't looking, or write a 'Dear John' letter, than confront the situation openly.

Venus in Libra: Venus in the sign Libra indicates a type of person to woman marriage and harmonious social relationships are of extreme importance. Venus, the planet ruling Libra, is powerful and well-placed here. Since Venus usually bestows well-proportioned features and general physical beauty, people with this position are attractive to the opposite sex and have many opportunities for marriage.

These people have an innate ability to understand the feelings of others. Enjoying companionship, they seek relationships in which a harmonious and close personal bond is possible. Along with their consideration for others, they have a desire to please, which results in their being well-liked. Their sense of justice and fair play in romance and social relations is well-developed. Because they dislike coarseness and uncouth behavior, they have high standards for social conduct and manners. They are romantic and affectionate; but as Libra is an intellectual sign they seek intellectual stimulation and companionship from close personal relationships; sensuality by itself will not suffice. In this respect Venus in Libra is different from Venus in Taurus, as it is not concerned with money per se; however, natives like to be surrounded by beauty, and thus usually require money. Unlike natives with Venus in Taurus, these people seek status more through their personal relationships than through possessions; but as a rule they are endowed with both, because they try to establish meaningful relationships with mature individuals who have acquired wealth. Moreover, they are able to make money by their pleasing manners and aptitude in dealing with the public, which can be applied to business.

The aesthetic perceptions are highly developed with Venus in Libra. The natives often have an aptitude for some form of art, especially music. Because Libra is an Air sign and sound waves travel through the medium of air, they generally have a good sense of hearing, which is the basis of their musical ability. Venus in Taurus, by contrast, is more likely to relate to painting, sculpture, and other tactile arts.

People with this Venus placement dislike disagreements and discord. If they are exposed to them too frequently, they become nervous, upset, and often ill. Consequently they avoid situations of conflict. If Venus is afflicted, they may go along with others merely to avoid argument and unpleasantness, thus appearing to lack integrity. An afflicted Venus in Libra can lead to superficial emotional and social values and produce a conformist attitude and a lack of well-defined personal values.

Venus in Libra: There is ability in giving public performances; and these natives take the limelight gracefully. Much public acclaim and popularity can accrue to those in the performing arts.

Venus in Libra: In this sign, Venus is at home and at her best. Released from the earthly bondage she knows in Taurus, and because of the airy, intellectual quality of Libra, an Air sign, she is more refined, aesthetic, and artistic. Expresses on the mental and spiritual levels rather than the physical plane. Direct and clear emotions; the young-at-heart. Easily hurt but do not hold a grudge unless Venus is afflicted. Gives keen sense of color. Makes a good hostess, for Venus in Libra relates to others easily. Sincerity and yet impersonality too. Cannot function in a discordant atmosphere without the health being affected.

Venus in Libra: Your emotions are simple, direct, crystal clear. You are one of the young and pure in heart. The difficulties of life don't destroy your faith in the beauty of love; and since this is the sort of faith that vindicates itself, you are likely to find more genuine happiness in life than most. You are easily hurt, but you aren't touchy about it; you can't hold a grudge, or even condemn those who hurt you. You have a knack for thinking the best of people who repay you by thinking the best of you. The directness of your response to social relations; the genuineness of your affections, which you express with a combination of sincerity and impersonality - these endear you to many, making you a sought-after companion and guest, and a charming host or hostess. You can safely allow emotional experience to be the breath of your life, because when it is filtered through your clarifying responses it is a pure, sweet and exhilarating air.

Venus in Libra: Libra being the sign of balance as well as one of Venus's signs, you should be able to express either your masculine side or your feminine side easily, depending on what's being called for. You need marriage - or at the very least stable companionship - to be at your best. You also have a strong need for peace and harmony. Though you can 'make do' with virtually anybody who's reasonably easy to get along with, in the long run you need someone who's doing something worthwhile with his / her life, someone whose experiences are worth sharing and meaningful in your eyes. This is because, with Saturn exalted in Libra, you can't love someone you don't also respect.

Venus in Libra: Libra is the second sign ruled by Venus, the influence of which is increased when placed in this sign. The attitude to love is romantic, affectionate and idealistic. The subject may even fall in love with love; but here is someone with such a strong need for a loving relationship that his or her potential may not be fully developed when he / she is alone. There is much kindness, sympathy and understanding, with time spent listening to the problems of others and lending moral support. Tact and diplomacy is usual, as is a great love of beauty and a comfortable (sometimes luxurious) lifestyle. Rich food eaten in congenial surroundings can make life worthwhile for someone with this placing.

Negatively, there may be resentment and indecision (if laziness is shown elsewhere in the chart). Money will be spent openly and freely, but may be used to buy affection.

Venus in Libra: In Libra, Venus tells of a native who is idealistic, whose emotions are direct, and who has a love of beauty - one who is sensitive and easily hurt, but who nevertheless continues to see the romance surrounding him. He usually gives others the benefit of any doubt - he seeks justice and truth, and responds to the finer instincts. He needs, at times, to be brought back down to earth and to face realities. He has a strong desire for peace, order and harmony; he yearns for knowledge, is philosophical, and is attracted to art and creative endeavors. This native is able to attract people to his special charity, cause or interest - and is fascinated by the law (man-made) and by the laws of nature. He can be highly spiritual, and thrives on affection.

Venus in Libra: You are a charming, though potentially superficial, lover. Love for you has to be evidently civil, beautiful and harmonious -a classical love that graces your life and the society you live in like a piece of music or a work of art. You draw this sense of love from deep levels of your soul, but paradoxically it can distance you from actually feeling love on a personal level, making it hard for you to utterly commit, and causing you to seduce with and be seduced by mere fancy.

You attract with a gentle, sophisticated and aesthetic charm that can make Other feel treated how he/ she has always wanted to be treated; with a social style and contacts, and the improved life-style these promise or bring; and by being true to some definite standard of relating and social behavior.

You repel with an inability to resist the temptation of using and enjoying your natural appeal through flirting, thus appearing insincere to Other; with a blind adherence to social etiquette and norms so as to mask emotional ineptitude; and with an intolerance of honest displays of emotion, such being seen as bad manners.

You are attracted to beauty, be it looks or personality; to an Other who is your equal, in terms of complementing you, rather than of social standing; and to harmony and tastefulness, be it in the living room, the kitchen or the bedroom.

You are repelled by Others who do not appeal to your refined sense of values and appearance; by an Other who lacks the social graces or at least refuses to learn any (from you?); by any kind of aesthetic, moral or cultural wasteland; and by coarseness.

When you are alone or dissatisfied, it is because no-one measures up to your impossible standards. More to the point, however pleasing and graceful these standards may be, they do not fulfill Other's emotional needs - or your own for that matter. It is equally possible that you have applied these high social and aesthetic standards to your own personality and found it wanting and unfit for relationship. The barrier you have to get through is a superficial idea of love and relating. This does not mean that you are shallow and incapable of loving, but that you use surface values like looks and behavior as your criteria because you are not sure of your own inner worth and lovability. Libra, the Scales, can 'tip' things the other way and find you rejecting social and aesthetic values to some degree; but this would be you simply rebelling against them in an attempt to find your own emotional truth. But carried too far, this could find you more alone than ever. Truth is beauty.

Venus in Libra: You may be attracted to somewhat unsettled relationships, which is natural with this position. A quiet, uneventful life is boring to you, for it is continual change and growth that keep you interested and creative in a love relationship.

You insist that you and your lover be equal, not in a static equilibrium, but rather in continuing readjustment that keeps both partners on an even basis. Reversing sex-typed roles from time to time can be very helpful by giving each of you a view from the other side. This tends to break down ingrained and often subconscious sex barriers that can get in the way of a creative, flowing relationship.

You particularly admire physical beauty in a lover; but do not let a person's appearance blind you to the beauty, or lack of it, in his or her soul. Let your judgment of beautiful form be more than skin-deep.

In the long run, you will be most satisfied with an all-round lover whose accomplishments and qualities are not just physical but extend in many directions. This partner's experience in love can be the foundation for a very broad-based love relationship. Thus, although youth and beauty may appeal to you most at first, you are more likely to be fulfilled by an experienced and mature partner your age or older.

Venus in Libra: If you value harmony in social situations, regardless of the cost, you may withhold your opinions and sense of justice. You may gain a false sense of harmony with others when in effect you are constantly at the mercy of their approval.

When you withhold the Libra qualities for creating harmony and instead seek to appease others by telling them what you think they want to hear (according to their sense of fair play), your manipulations may inadvertently create chaos. Inevitably, such chaos leads to feelings of self-doubt and worthlessness.

In situations of conflict, if you fear that the solution you envision may not be followed or accepted, then you may withhold an honest sharing of yourself for the sake of harmony. This can lead to confusion and helplessness in your relationships.

When you are willing to risk losing your role of Mr. or Ms. Nice Person in social situations, you can choose to share the injustices that you feel as well as the fair solution that you see. In so doing, your courage can pave the way for a higher, fairer order to take place. By asserting integrity and openly sharing your insights, you can come to appreciate and value yourself in your relationships.

When you state your independent value system, your sense of balance and harmony is acknowledged. This can give you a feeling of self-worth. Declaring your innate perception of fair play to others (and risking the threat of possible disharmony in order to reach a greater harmony) results in experiencing inner satisfaction from sharing your fine Libra gifts of social organization.

By taking the initiative to create harmony that is in alignment with the integrity of your inner sense of justice and fair play, you can experience a firm, consistent sense of self-worth.

Venus in Libra: You have an irresistibly pleasing romantic demeanor, no matter what you look like. The sign of Libra is intimately connected with partnerships, so you are particularly sensitive to the give-and-take associated with any kind of pairing that is one-on-one. You are a romantic, and will spend much of your attention and focus on relationships in your lifetime. You vibrate to the concept of harmony, and peace is your ultimate goal. However, along the road to that goal, you can certainly stir a pot or two!

You are a pleaser, that is for certain. In fact, because you are so sensitive to the needs of others, you may be accused of adapting your manner or even your personality to "suit" the object of your affection! The truth is, you can easily lose your identity in partnership because of your natural ability to see things from your partner's point of view. Libra is the sign of balance, and in your attempts to keep the scales balanced, you may wear your partner down by a natural tendency to "keep scores". You should watch out that you don't give away power to your partner, and then resent your feeling of powerlessness.

You view partnerships as fundamental to a fulfilled existence, and you work hard at supporting your partner's individuality. Togetherness is so extraordinarily important to you that your partner might find you quite dependent, and even clingy. In most cases, however, your deep need for togetherness makes you an exceptionally companionable person. You redefine the word "charming", and you are an expert at smoothing ruffled feathers. Compromise comes easy to you, and your ideal partner will appreciate your willingness to consider his or her needs and wants.

Venus in Libra, Sun in Leo: If the Sun sign is Leo, this Venus placing will tend to make the subject rather laid-back. Leonine generosity is increased; and there will be a tendency to put the loved one on a pedestal, increasing the possibility of hurt should the partner fail to measure up to the exacting standards required. The pleasures of the good life will be important and enjoyed; and creative flair may be shown in design or music. As a friend, he or she will make quite sure that every event is an occasion. A great deal of money must be earned, so that it can be spent!

Venus in Libra and Sun in Leo: Helena Blavatsky, Bill Clinton

Venus in Libra, Sun in Virgo: If the Sun sign is Virgo, this Venus placing often helps the shy, not-so-self-confident Virgoan to relax and enjoy love relationships and other luxuries.

Here is a helpful, sympathetic friend who will enjoy doing good turns for others. The subject will want to work hard for every penny earned; but will not be averse to enjoying the pleasures that extra money can bring.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aries: Here we have a case of "opposites attract"! The attraction to each other can be very powerful, mainly because each of you seems to offer what the other lacks. Your partner's direct—even aggressive—approach in romance seems to promise to simplify your life, as you tend toward indecision. It's a stark contrast to your more passive, mental approach to love. Note that your Venusian rulers are Venus and Mars! This promises much excitement. Your partnership may be better if it's an affair rather than a long-standing relationship, as the differences between you that spark the initial attraction can grow to be challenging over time. You are a somewhat dependent creature, while your partner is much more of a go-getter in matters of the heart. Your indecision can be a bone of contention in your relationship, simply because your partner doesn't have much patience to wait. If your Venus in Aries friend sees someone (or something) he or she likes, they'll go for it! No need to weigh the pros and cons, as Aries is an intuitive Fire sign, and he or she figures that if it turns out wrong, the mess can be cleaned up after the fact. You, on the other hand, notoriously take your time when it comes to making decisions in love. And, you value reason. There is no one quite as reasonable as you are when it comes to matters of the heart! This works well with your more intuitive, active lover in the sense that he or she definitely needs a partner who will compromise, but you may grow to resent the inequality in your relationship. Additionally, your partner doesn't always listen to reason. The best bet for long-term compatibility with this pairing would be to open your hearts to each other and learn. Somewhere between your polar opposites is a balance. If you can't find that point, your relationship may very well turn into a game of tug-of-war.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Taurus: Both of you have your Venus in Venus-ruled signs! This means you both value peace, harmony, and balance. This common ground can help smooth over an otherwise rather unlikely combination. This is a pairing of rather dissimilar temperaments in other departments. While you take an intellectual approach to love (you think and talk a lot about your relationship), your partner is considerably more practical and earthy. All too often, Earth signs (including Taurus), interpret your intellectual approach to love as either disloyalty or lacking in sincerity. You can easily become frustrated with your lover's seeming disinterest in discussing your relationship. Your partner is sure to appreciate the enormous amount of time you invest in your partnership, although he or she may eventually question whether your approach is actually getting results. You see, your lover is much more interested in what works in love—what he or she sees in tangible terms. What "could be", "would be", or "might be" doesn't pull much weight with your Venus in Taurus partner. With a natural inclination to see where your relationship needs adjustment, you are usually more than willing to compromise—a trait that might be considered a necessity with your partner, who is not the most flexible of lovers. Your thirst for interaction may not be easily quenched with your rather self-satisfied Venus in Taurus partner. You are more likely to agree on what you spend your money on, and your mutual commitment to making your shared environment comfortable, balanced, and beautiful.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Gemini: This is a lively combination in which communication doesn't just flow, it bounces and leaps. Together, you will enjoy some fabulous conversations. You thrive on feedback from your partner, and your Venusian Gemini lover will certainly fulfill that need. There can be considerable respect between you. Your partner enjoys plenty of social and mental stimulation—the more variety, the better—and you do as well. However, your focus is on the excitement of togetherness, while your partner is not so specific in his or her needs for stimuli. As both of you enjoy communicating in relationships, you could easily compete for "air time". Your partner may not be as romantic as you, and you might complain that he or she is a bit too analytical and perhaps abrasive with his or her wit. Most of the time, however, you are both speaking the same language! Together, you may not be able to make decisions easily, and you may lack mutual, practical goals. This relationship can contain markedly less of the sort of jealousy that undermines many other pairings, and cooperation is easy between you. Both of you are flexible when it comes to love, and that fact can certainly help ease difficulties that arise.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Cancer: Initially, the fact that both of you are sensitive to each other and very accommodating might make it seem like this is a match made in heaven. On further inspection, however, there is a key difference between your styles of loving that could easily become a bone of contention over time. Your partner expresses his or her love in a distinctly personal manner, while you are more intellectually inclined. You are adept at honing in on what your partner needs and what makes your partner uncomfortable—so much so that you might change your style completely in order to keep the peace. With this Venusian Cancer, you will quickly get to know that your partner is very sensitive. Although it is important to avoid hurting your lover's feelings, you don't want to compromise your personality completely in order to maintain harmony. If you do, personal communication between you can come to a halt, and neither of you will find much satisfaction in that kind of environment. Your partner is capable of putting up huge walls around himself or herself, and communication is utterly critical to your sense of fulfillment in a relationship. The more you press your partner for the feedback you thrive on, the more your partner may withdraw. As charming as you are, you might be able to coax your partner out of his or her shell. However, you both should be committed to keeping game-playing to a minimum, as that is one of the biggest problems that can arise between your different temperaments. Your greatest strengths together are sensitivity and balance, so concentrate on developing these things in aboveboard ways. You might never find such a caring and supportive partner elsewhere.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Leo: Both of you are in love with love! You get off on romance, and enjoy all the trappings of romantic encounters—and so does your partner! The main difference in this respect is that you are entirely wrapped up in the "we" of your partnership, while your partner is more concerned about "me". Your partner is infatuated with the feelings that are most characteristic of the first stages of romance, and wants that passion to continue...indefinitely! While romance is certainly right up your alley, you have tremendous respect for the give and take of partnership. Your partner will truly appreciate your willingness to compromise and accommodate him or her. However, over time, you are bound to refer to your "mental log" and start tallying things up. Your love of equality and fairness always surfaces, and although you are generally very willing to acquiesce and concede, resentment can burn inside you if your partner takes advantage of this willingness. Your resentment can eventually get the best of your partnership. You might find your partner a tad too intense at times. At the same time, your lover might complain that you are somewhat flighty and a bit too intellectual for his or her liking. The key to happiness in this relationship will be to enjoy the excitement of your partnership, and to avoid getting into a pattern where you are always running after your somewhat hard to please partner, trying to make him or her happy. It can be all too easy for your desire to keep peace in your relationship to be taken advantage of. Your partner should recognize that you are likely to resent a partnership in which the "give and take" is not balanced.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Virgo: You and your lover share a love of balance and harmony, which can be a major point of attraction between you. One of the problems that arise between Venus in Air (Libra) and Earth (Virgo) temperaments, however, is a fundamental difference in styles of loving that can lead to misunderstandings. Your partner is definitely a thinker, but you are more given to sharing flights of fancy. Your more practical partner entertains and shares ideas that are more conservative and practical. It may seem to you that your partner is skeptical in matters of the heart, which can certainly irritate your sensibilities, simply because you have an idealistic and positive view of partnership. You can sometimes give off an air of detachment, and your charming manner might be interpreted by your partner as a lack of sincerity. Because loyalty is of utmost importance to your Venus in Virgo partner, your commitment to the partnership will be very much appreciated. You, in fact, live for partnership! You are very romantic and always put yourself in others' shoes. At times, however, your partner can feel insecure in the face of your sociable, people-oriented values. He or she wants to be your "number one", and needs to feel needed. Both of you, however, are very willing to make adjustments and concessions in order for your relationship to work. You can enjoy very stimulating conversations, especially if you appreciate each other's different styles of expression. Both of you are very willing to bend and adapt in order to keep the relationship alive, and this can make all the difference when two dissimilar personalities pair up.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner who also has Venus in Libra: Pairing two Libras at best is pleasing and harmonious. At worst, it's a bit unbalanced—a word (rather, a condition) that makes Libra uneasy. After all, Libras work so hard to balance their relationships and their environments. Both of you value feedback and communication in your relationships, and each of you is more than willing to give the other just these things! However, because both of you are rather ambivalent and indecisive, an endless loop may be the result when you get together. Your conversations will be very stimulating, no doubt, but will they go anywhere solid? Probably not. You two need to establish some goals in your relationship in order to escape the "endless loop". It can be very difficult to establish a leader in this partnership. Of course, a relationship doesn't necessarily need a leader, per se. However, both of you "get off" on cooperation, bending to your partner, and compromising. As such, you will likely find you share a lot of interests, but acting on these things might be a problem. You might have a difficult time curbing your expenses as well, simply because both of you have such refined tastes. Each of you have perfected the art of diplomacy within relationships, and you need to be careful that you truly confront problems as they arise instead of talking your way around them. Despite these apparent problems, you truly understand each other and have very similar partnership needs and expectations. Togetherness is of utmost value to both of you, and your similarities can be the foundation for a powerful bond.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Scorpio: Your partner values commitment, and so do you. Both of you are focused on togetherness, albeit in different ways! Your partner wants your soul, not just your presence. You, on the other hand, are most interested in companionship and outward expressions of togetherness. With Libra ruling your relationship needs, you work hard at finding common ground and adamantly believe in equality and all that is fair. Your partner, on the other hand, believes just as strongly that life isn't fair! There is unquestionably an attraction between you. Your lover is fascinated with your charm, and you are intrigued by your partner's intense love nature. Although Venus in Scorpio people are notorious for their mysteriousness, he or she considers you to be somewhat of a puzzle. You bring a lively, luminous energy to your relationships—qualities that stand in stark contrast to your partner's intensity. This fundamental difference can at once attract you to each other and be the source of some provocative difficulties in your relationship as time goes by. You have a lot to teach—and to offer—each other. Finding a common ground may not be obviously easy, but commitment to your partnership may be the strongest mutual goal.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Sagittarius: Your Venus signs are considered compatible, and this is certainly a relationship in which both partners appreciate each other. We are combining Air and Fire with this union, and much enthusiasm and positive energy is generated between you. You may find your lover somewhat disconcerting at times, however, simply because he or she is freedom-loving. You are not one to try to confine a lover, but some adjustment in your thinking may be needed. Your partner is adventurous in love, and not as tactful as you can be. At times, he or she may run roughshod over your feelings, often with no intention to do so, but you are fully capable of understanding that your partner is simply enthusiastic, not bad-hearted. Your indecision and tendency to weigh all sides before making a move in love can be somewhat baffling to your "do it now" partner. However, you can have a lot of fun with each other, and laughter is truly a gift in any relationship. Good conversations are probable when you are together, and shared interests will do much to strengthen the bond between you. As well, you are the master of being reasonable, which your partner will appreciate more than most.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Capricorn: Both of you place a high value on partnerships, and you are equally committed—only in different ways! If you can get past the differing styles of expressing love, then you will find this common thread is a bonding one. You concern yourself with equality in your relationships, and you busy yourself weighing the pros and cons from day to day. Your partner is also concerned about your relationship, only he or she is somewhat more reserved than you are when it comes to open expression of love. Eloquence and romance are important to you, while practical expressions of love are important to your lover. Your partner will appreciate your commitment to him or her, deriving a sense of security from it. You will appreciate your partner's commitment as well, and you feel very at ease with him or her. Your partner exudes a charming air of competence, which is a definite turn-on for you. Your willingness to adjust and adapt brings a definite strength to the relationship, and it would be wise for your partner to appreciate and acknowledge that quality in you. In turn, be sure you acknowledge your partner's stability in love, and appreciate the security you derive from his or her constancy. Your styles in love are different, but mutual respect is always possible despite these differences, and will go a long way towards compatibility.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Aquarius: Each of you places a high value on sharing ideas with your partner, which can be a major source of common ground in your relationship. Communication will be flowing between the two of you! There may be some issues with the definition of your relationship, however. Whereas you value partnerships more than anything, your partner is more inclined to place the highest value on the friendship first, before the partnership. Both of you are cooperative souls in relationships, and this fact adds tremendous strength to the opportunity for a flowing and respectful relationship. Your partner can sometimes frustrate love interests with an air of indifference, but you are more apt to understand this quality and appreciate it than others. Your partner values peace and not only believes in equality, but treats people with equality in practice. This is something that is especially appealing to you. Both of you are reasonable people, and this can be a very reasonable union as a result. Conflicts, of course, will occur, but your ability to reason things through (and your partner's responsiveness in this department) can help smooth over rough edges.

How Venus in Libra Relates to a Partner with Venus in Pisces: This is one of the combinations of signs that requires a fair share of adjustment, simply because your love natures are quite different. However, both of you are gentle, caring folk in love and these qualities certainly give your relationship a boost. Although both of you are generally willing to adjust for, and accommodate, your partner, the sign of your love planet (Venus) is an Air sign, while your partner's is a Water sign. While you approach relationship problems with an intellectual and reasonable attitude, your partner instinctively responds to problems emotionally. You are motivated most by the world of thought and ideas in relationships, and your partner is motivated most by feelings. Your partner needs some space and solitude in order to work things out inside, while your first instinct is to talk things through. These kinds of issues are not insurmountable, however, especially when you are aware of each other's unique set of values and needs. Although you will probably find that adjustments are necessary rather frequently, love and understanding can certainly make this partnership work.

Venus in Libra Woman: Sharing is what you're all about. You like good conversation and artistic pursuits, and you make your lovely home a place for genteel social gatherings where people can communicate and really talk together in gracious surroundings. You gravitate naturally to the good, the true, and the beautiful, whether it’s in art or in people. Whatever is graceful and charming attracts you, in the environment or in personalities. Relationships of all kinds take your attention, and you love to discuss them. When there’s a problem, you're good at working out compromises. The whole idea of relationship intrigues you, including the idea of polarity - that we are two halves of the same whole or two sides of the same coin. How things balance out or complement each other interests you, and you like to talk about it.

Mutuality is very important and you're most at home interacting on an intimate level, one-to-one. Good manners are the core of intimacy, and it’s important that intimates treat each other well. This helps keep the balance. If things get out of balance, you're the first one to do your fair share to restore it.

You are most yourself in a relationship but you can swing back and forth as to how you want to be treated. Sometimes, it’s the hearts-and-flowers approach - other times, it’s the intellectual and rational. No matter what, you are always considerate and cultured. You take pride in yourself as a communicator who can talk things out in a peaceful manner.

Your ideal man is gentle and refined, cultured and fair. He’s also good looking. He understands that in a close relationship it is important to keep the balance between light and dark, sweet and sour. He doesn’t like extremes, but he tolerates them when they happen, working with you to restore equilibrium. He doesn’t negate the use of sweetness and fair play. He knows, as do you, that relationships take work and discussion, and that just as you have to take the bad with the good, you can take the good with the bad. You love to love. You're a natural at it. And You always hold up your end of the bargain.

Venus in Libra Woman: Women with this planetary position are extremely feminine in a conventional sense. You enjoy wearing beautiful clothing, cosmetics, perfume and jewelry; and your appearance is very important to you. You devote much time and energy to making yourself look your best, and you tend to be terribly vain. You might place so much importance on your looks that you fail to develop other qualities, and are more devastated than other women when old age takes away your trump card. You also pride yourself on your pleasant disposition and refinement. Easily offended by coarseness, you equate femininity with grace, good manners and physical beauty. You can't bear to get your hands dirty, you dislike sports of all kinds (unless your Sun is in Sagittarius), and you wouldn't be caught dead without your mascara.

Venus in Libra Woman: Women with this Venus position want to be cared for deeply; however, in public places, social propriety and a suave approach on the part of the men with whom they are seen are important to them.

Venus in Libra Man: One might call you a gentleman of the old school. You're polite and discreet. You are known for your charm and good manners as well as for your sense of fairness. Your style is courtly and you are quick to reciprocate any gesture made in your direction. The theory of relationships of all kinds, from the personal to the legal and artistic, interests you and you love discussions about relationships. It's your favorite topic, conversationally and intellectually. For this reason you enjoy small, intimate dinner parties that foster good conversation at a high level, where ideas are the foremost. You're a mainstream kind of guy and you don't go in for the weird and outre'. Beauty and balance are your style. You like to share cultural pursuits.

You're not averse to marriage, for partnership is your preferred way of life. You like being in a relationship. In fact, you're much happier that way. You can rarely tolerate being alone for long. Love is a beautiful concept, and you love beauty wherever you find it- especially in the female of the species. But don't look to you for exotic sexual experiences. Just for loving affection and quiet sensuality. Coarseness turns you off completely, except for once in a while, when a small dose of it is necessary to balance things if they have gone too far in one direction.

Your ideal woman is first and foremost a lady, even if on the very rare occasion she can be a harlot in the bedroom. She is good at discussing and debating ideas. Nothing is more of an aphrodisiac for you than a really good conversation. You're a bit inconsistent, you admit. Sometimes you want a woman who is ultra feminine, all ruffles and lace. Other times you want an intellectual, someone who is your equal, to talk to as well as to look at. You like to share your thoughts and feelings, for you are a true romantic, in love with love.

Venus in Libra Man: Men with Venus in Libra are attracted to traditionally beautiful women. Your female ideal is the 'perfect lady', delicate, sweet-tempered, refined, intelligent. She never changes diapers, pumps her own gasoline, perspires or swears. You are turned off by strong-minded, independent women or those who are highly competitive - in business or private life. You are looking for a woman who will complement you, not one who is fully-formed in herself.
