“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” – Morrie Schwartz

Libra (born between September 23 – October 22) season is upon us, and what better way to kick off Astrology Zone than with the sign of love? Loving a Libra doesn’t have to be complicated, but like everything in love, it will certainly take some work.

A house or governing body rules each astrological sign and Libra is no exception. Ruled by the House of Partnerships, this sign tends to focus more on one-on-one relationships and balance than other astrological signs. When dating or pursuing a Libra, you can never go wrong with the below tips.

Be very confident in who you are.

Libras are very charming individuals, and with charm comes many admirers. If you’re dating or pursuing a Libra, be prepared to have a bit of competition for their affection in the beginning – and arguably for the duration of your relationship. This sign loves to play the field as they’re always looking for the right person to balance them out. Any sign of insecurity and Libras will immediately X you out on their list of potential long-term mates. But once you have a Libra’s heart, you have it for good.

Be adaptable.

It’s in this sign’s nature to adapt to their partner’s needs in order to have a successful union. With that being said, nothing pleases your Libra more than to have a mate who is willing to do the same. Libras can easily place the focus on their mate, and even give in to excess if left unchecked. But they function the best when they are supported in the manner in which they’re willing to give. Self-love is key in all signs when it comes to love, but there’s absolutely nothing like a Libra who loves him or herself.

Keep things interesting.

The ruling element for Libra is air, and like the wind, they like to be free and unrestricted; especially when it comes to their heart. While this sign values balance, order and stability, they equally cherish spur of the moment adventures with their significant others. Make sure to keep your relationship inside and outside of the bedroom very interesting. Air signs have to constantly be both mentally and physically stimulated and the more activities you share with your mate, the closer of a bond you will form.

Support their dreams and purpose.

Some astrological signs can work a job for 30-something years without feeling any type of connection to it other than a paycheck, comfort and familiarity. But for Libra, purpose is a significant part of their life. Being governed by the House of Partnerships, Libras take their roles in love, work and in life seriously. Taking interest in your mate’s purpose and dreams is critical. The act of accomplishing something great or small on an individual, joint or universal level is something that Libras take very seriously.

Remember that words matter.

Libras are always prioritizing balance—it doesn’t necessarily mean they successfully achieve it all of the time—so words will be at the forefront of their minds in an effort to create peace and order within their relationships. You have to choose your words carefully when communicating with a Libra because there is very little they will forget.

Libras can be some of the most exciting people you’ll ever date. Just make sure that you’re ready to go all in if they fall for you.
