When Libra and Libra come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s an instant harmonious connection; a true meeting of the hedonistic minds. Ruled by decadent Venus, these two lovebirds are an enviable couple in social settings, dressed lavishly head-to-toe in the most fashion-forward trends. A Libra-Libra relationship can quickly take a turn toward overindulgence if you’re not careful, since you both have an affinity for the finer things in life.
Libra and Libra: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Poetic justice? Quite possibly THE most loving combo on the planet. You’re a double shot of Venus-ruled energy, and it’s a magical dreamscape from the get-go. Beauty, harmony, peace and justice: these are the values that Libras hold dear. If your scales are balanced, you’ll flow through this fairy tale relationship with nary a disagreement along the way. Socially, you’re an enviable couple, always dressed to the nines with a golden halo of good vibes emanating from your sunny personalities. Date Nights are epic affairs and lavish spending is the name of the game.
Where you clash:
But…TWO people wearing rose colored glasses? This might make for a flowery view on life, but you can quickly become a delusional duo if you don’t plant your designer footwear in the reality zone from time to time. Debt can rack up quickly, and since neither of you likes dealing with conflict, so too can denial. Before the bill collectors come a-knocking, create a pleasurable experience out of working on joint finances. Dress up in vintage loungewear as you pore over Quickbooks; sign utility bill checks with an ostrich feather-tipped pen. Start an entertainment budget for your nights on the town, but have savings auto-deducted from your paychecks in equal measure. With the injection of practical planning skills, you’ll make blissful heads of the household, and provide a secure foundation for yourselves and your prospective family.
Libra and Libra are both air signs
Let’s take a road trip! Ooh, yay! And then we’ll hop a standby flight or go skydiving. Yes yes yes! By the way, I just scored two Hamilton tickets—surprise! We’re going to New York!
Put two spontaneous air signs together, and you might just get an exciting, non-stop barrage of conversation and ideas. But do any of these grand schemes actually happen? That’s the challenge in a double air-sign duo—and a noble one you might both just rise to! Your social signs both crave novelty. You’ll be the first in line to try the buzzy new restaurant, see a trending new band or get the latest iPhone upgrade. In fact, you might be the pair camped outside the Apple store, entertaining the crowds with a magic show or a mobile coffee cart.
You both easily get scattered, and your million friends, activities and separate interests could make it hard to find quality time.
Trouble begins in an air-sign love match when there’s TOO much change. You may be constantly on the move and never really rooted. There can be flakiness, as you blow with the wind, or run as “hot and cold” as the air temperatures outside. You both easily get scattered, and your million friends, activities and separate interests could make it hard to find quality time. Air signs are communicative, but not always compassionate—your arguments can turn into brutal verbal dagger-flinging.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from the same astrological element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. As a same-element couple, make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with people of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, a grounded earth sign can ground you by adding more structure and tradition. A sensitive water sign can bring you out of your heads and into your hearts.
For best results, strike the right amount of change and stability. Our aunt and uncle, both air signs, were constantly renovating their home—and while it often added chaos, it seemed to keep them together. Their home was like a modern art gallery with constantly rotating exhibits—and the hot spot for massive parties, thrown “just because.” Entertaining is a huge connective factor for two air signs. Your combined social circle can rival the circumference of the earth! In fact, you’re at your best when enjoying the company of many different people. Air signs crave constant stimulation (and might even be the pair who pulls off an open relationship). Too many romantic nights-for-two can get boring, so don’t spend excessive time alone together, lapse into lazy homebody mode or rush into cohabitation.
Libra and Libra are both cardinal signs
In astrology, you are both from the “cardinal” quality or triplicity. Cardinal signs are both leadership-driven, headstrong and like to be first. In this love match, you will always need to work on compromise. Otherwise, you can butt heads and fiercely dig in your heels, driving a wedge into your relationship. When you respect each other’s leadership abilities and strength, however, you can be a fascinating power couple who can take on the world or build an empire together. Birthdays, holidays and other occasions are NOT to be missed in a cardinal sign coupling. These are major life events that merit a grand celebration with an epic gift to match. Your signs can be sophisticated and status-seeking—you love dressing up and turning heads as a dashing duo (and yes, even inspiring envy among your friends). Impressing each other is part of your courtship ritual in a cardinal sign love match. Take turns plotting new experiences, surprising each other with reservations or vacations that you’ve carefully curated. To minimize fighting, one of you should take charge at a time. Or, create a shared project where you play to your differing strengths, each of you shining in your own rights, but never competing.
Libra and Libra are both yang, or masculine, signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yang signs: aggressive, action-oriented and driven. In this astrology love match, you can motivate each other…or you can find yourself in a power struggle. Two yang signs must be careful not to bulldoze or tread on each others’ turf. Sharing the power and taking turns having the upper hand will be the key to your happiness.
Libra and Libra are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool to a brother-sister vibe.
