Of all the zodiac signs, Libra is the one most lost without a lifelong partner. On a constant search for romance, this sign is the Idealist of the zodiac, and is in love with the idea of love itself. When Libra meets and falls in love with another Libra, it can be a beautiful, serene relationship for a while, but does Libra and Libra compatibility have the staying power to last a lifetime?
This couple is certainly attracted to one another, each appreciating the dignity, charm and social ease of the other. Chatty, flirty and intellectually on a par, these two have great chemistry together and will love to be out partying as often as possible. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and so this will a demonstrative love affair, with lots of gifts, flowers, poems and romantic surprises. The husband who sends his wife a rose every day, no matter where they are in the world, is probably a Libra; if his wife is a Libra too, this will be the ultimate expression of romance in her eyes. Libra and Libra compatibility is very obvious to friends and relatives, and the couple will certainly appear to be a good match.
However, there’s a reason that Libra’s mythological archetype is the Idealist. Libra always thinks the grass is greener elsewhere, and is on a constant search for “something” (or someone) better. Libra knows that his or her perfect partner is out there….somewhere….if only they could find one another. It seldom occurs to the romantic Idealist that they might already have found one another. Libra and Libra compatibility can be on shaky ground when both partners like to flirt and both partners are wondering if someone new is around the corner. This is a partnership where real commitment is required, because anything less will be sensed by each partner, which will in turn drive more idealistic restlessness – a vicious circle.
For Libra and Libra, compatibility also raises questions of honesty. Libra is not a dishonest sign, as such, but both partners do tend to go to extremes in their search of harmony. Rather than endure a row, both will tend to lie and to conceal their true feelings in order to avoid discord. This can lead to hurts festering instead of being worked through, and resentment will build up. Before you know it, each partner will find their Libra mate falling further and further off the pedestal they were placed on; imperfections will be noticed, and both Libras will increase their search for the new someone perfect. Alas that is the major problem in this relationship: the fact that for Libra, love compatibility has to be perfect. The Idealist won’t settle for anything less, whereas in the real world we all have our quirks and relationship issues.
If they give one another a chance to be normal, as opposed to perfect, Libra and Libra compatibility can work. Both partners share a love of the good life, and will enjoy social events together. They are both indecisive, although hopefully not at the same time – if they take turns in making decisions and leading the relationship, these two indecisive creatures can somehow get their act together beautifully. All too often, however, the lack of practical ability in either partner shows up in a somewhat chaotic lifestyle. With nobody taking care of the mundane details of life, this partnership are likely to be always late, always forgetful and always missing deadlines. However, they are also undoubtedly always charming, and so society usually forgives them. Whether they will forgive each other when the hundredth thing goes wrong that month, is another matter.
For Libra and Libra, compatibility is something which could, should and ought to be present in their relationship, with just a little effort. Both need to put on hold the search for idealism, and to face up to a little realism instead, or at the very least embrace a shared, idealistic common purpose rather than expecting each other to be without fault. This particular relationship can illustrate both the best and the worst of Libra love compatibility – their joint idealism will either save them or doom them.
