The Libra Sexuality - Traits and Characteristics


As the seventh sign in the Zodiac calendar, Libra includes all those born from 23rd September to 23rd October. Librans are lovers of beauty and harmony and these inevitably inform their sexual relationships as well.

A Libra in love

For a Libran, being in love means surrounded by the rosy, peaceful aura of romance. Not for them the dizzying emotional roller coaster of a Gemini or the intense passion of a Scorpio. When happily in love, a Libra partner is casual and easy-going and often glows with an inner satisfaction that is obvious to the world. Unlike a Virgo who is as critical with a partner as with him/herself, Librans will often overlook the shortcomings of a beloved when they are truly in love. In fact, they may continue to be in a relationship even when it is better to opt out of it because of their deep disinclination for rocking the boat, as it were. Librans get extremely stressed out by disharmony and quarrels and will often go to great lengths to take things in their stride instead of confronting ugly truths or discussing uncomfortable issues.

While the sign of the Scales can imply a Libran’s love of balance and harmony, it can also indicate a curious vacillating nature. Sometimes a Libran can have difficulty in determining what he/she really wants. On one hand, they may seem to want a partner who's carefree and easy to deal with. On the other side, they appear to look for someone who's a true confidante and partner for life. This duality can also affect their own personality; a Libra man or woman may at times attempt to rationalize everything around them while at others they appear sensitive or even idealistic. Often partners of Librans have a difficult time understanding this constant back-and-forth of letting themselves go and reining themselves in. so if you find your Libran yet to figure out what they want, let them be. Give them enough time and space to set their priorities in order since it is in their nature to take some time arriving at a decision. However once they decide that you are the one for them, they will turn out to be one of the most caring, supportive and loyal partners of the zodiac.

How to seduce a Libra

The most effective way to turn on a Libra is to surround them with beauty and harmony. No loud music or outlandish bedroom display for them. Almost all Librans are lovers of beauty but one that is pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul. So for your special night with a Libra lover, stay away from jarring colors or heavy makeup. Rather ensure that you are elegantly dressed in subtle colors and a well-fitting tailored dress. If you plan to invite your Libra partner to your pad, make an effort to clean up your love nest and deck it with a few markers of sophistication like maybe a silk Persian rug or a bloom of orchids in a crystal vase. However remember not to overdo the surroundings with overt displays of luxury and crass indulgence. This might please a Leo lover but will jar a Libran’s eye for harmony and balance.

One of the best ways to turn on a Libra is to appeal to their senses of taste and scent. Subtle, floral or fruity perfumes work best unlike strong musk or woody scents. Again make sure you are ready to woo your beloved with exotic foods like truffles and caviar since Librans are greatly partial to symbols of sophistication. Don’t forget to keep a bottle of the best champagne you can afford at hand since it can work as a great aphrodisiac influence on Librans.

Librans are one of the hardest to seduce since with them everything must be pitched at the right level and at the right time. If you fumble with the first kiss or get sloppy while pouring out the wine, you might have to wait for another night with your Libran girlfriend. Libra men especially like being in control. So you may have be a little demure in the beginning and let him do a bit of the chasing. Because of his delicate sensibilities, you might put him off if you come off as too aggressive or sexually charged.

Behind that outward appearance of a calm and poised personality, many Librans are quite unsure of their sexual attractiveness. So you need to assure your Libran lover - without overtly seeming to - that no matter how influential the images of sexual attractiveness in the media, they are the one for you. Finally unlike a Scorpio or Leo, sex is not terribly important for a Libran to feel happy and fulfilled in love; so go it slow with a Libra lover and be responsive to subtle cues on what he/she feels and desires. Libra thrives more on the kick from being able to seduce a lover than from the act itself. With most Librans, there would be many who have fallen for their charms. Libra is symbolized by the scales and you can expect a good balance of give and take in bed! They’re not selfish lovers by far.

How to make it work

More than any other lover of the zodiac, a Libran need to experience harmony and peace in a relationship if they are to be committed partners. The nerve-racking ups and downs which thrill an Aries or the passionate intensity of a Scorpio are more likely to scare away a Libra who likes a life of poise and perfect balance. So if you crave emotional tumult or perpetual reassurance from a partner, perhaps a Libra is not for you. These individuals need the calm companionship of a partner who will be both their confidante and a carefree lover.

Librans are exceedingly popular on the social circuit. Their natural grace, charm and diplomacy draws people to them like bees to a flower. However a Libra man or woman will usually be emotionally close to very few people and if one of them happens to be you, you have just got yourself a real mate for life.
