Diplomatic Libra approaches love with a fair mind and open heart, aiming to find a balance not just between partners, but with fitting love into the larger scheme of life.
Things don't slow to quite the level of the overly practical Virgo, but Libra does prioritize so they don't take on more than they can handle. That said, Venus in Libra can tend to romanticize a relationship without giving enough thought to practical considerations. Like Gemini, Libra is ruled by Venus, so love, beauty, and luxury are highly important here (they also share Gemini's natural charm). Venus in Libra is all about loving love—as long as everything stays fair.
