hand, when the Venus-ruled Librans ask a question or make a statement, they manage to charm you right out of your good sense, so you're left vulnerable and unable to defend yourself. 

It doesn't matter whether the Libran asks, "Why are you so consistently ignorant, dear?" - or remarks, "What you're doing reveals your complex lack of breeding" - it will evoke a musical tone reminiscent of 'The Lost Chord.'  Those bunny-tail-soft Venus voices create images of maple syrup being poured into bowls of honey.  That's why Libra can argue for hours with Aries and leave the impression that it was the Ram who was being impossibly rude and wrongheaded, in comparison to Libra's nice, sensible logic.  Now what is that, if it isn't unfair?  No wonder Librans make fabulous lawyers, the kind who wins all the verbal debates in the courtroom before the jury.  If Libran lawyers can twist tough judges around their fingers and woo an indifferent panel of jurors to their side, you can imagine what happens in a battle of wits between Libra and the impulsive, quick-tempered, emotional Ram.  No contest. 

Perhaps Libra will accuse the Rams of being too hasty to make a sound judgment, of rushing in rashly, with no thought of possible consequences - then sweetly remind them of the beauty of the symbol of the Lady Justice with her Scales balanced in perfect equilibrium. 

Aries:  Yes, but she's wearing a blindfold, so how can she see right from wrong?
LIBRA:  The blindfold is only there to protect her from prejudice, dear.

Then Aries may ask Libra if he (or she) has ever heard the fable about the ass that starved to death because it couldn't make up its mind which field of clover to eat first.  Finally, the Libra man or woman will smile - and once the Ram is under the influence of that dazzling Venus aura, the Aries fire sputters out.  It's difficult for the friendly, open Rams to resist a smile and a kind word, and they're too na´ve to suspect Libra of using charm as a weapon against them.  Nevertheless, Libra does. 

Most of the time in this relationship, the Libran will remain cool and stable.  But when the Aries aggressiveness becomes intolerable, it can have the same effect upon this normally gentle person as the accumulation of tension has in the sky - a thunderstorm.  Every instinct of Libra recoils from unpleasant confrontation, but when he (or she) feels seriously threatened, a firm, sometimes even impulsive, action will be taken, if only for the purpose of regaining calm.  This may seem a little confusing, but you'll have to apply Libra logic if you want to straighten it out.  The best I can do is tell you that, with Libra, the end always justifies the means.  On that point, at least, most Rams will agree. 

Actually, with the respect always felt for one's opposite Sun Sign, Rams will, however reluctantly, look up to the Libran judgment and privately wished they possessed it.  Aries is aware that Libra is fair and logical, and a clear thinker.  The Aries man or woman knows that Libra decisions are nearly always right, but a Ram can get a little jumpy, sitting around watching Libra make them.  The word 'decision' itself causes most Librans to break out in a rash.  It doesn't bother Aries.  A decision has to be made?  Great.  Toss a coin or a feather - or just do what you instinctively feel is right, then forget it.  That's the Aries motto.  Dive right in.  (If there's no water in the pool, Rams scrape their chins in the cement, but they'll just stick on a Band-Aid, and be on their enthusiastic ways again.)  It's not that Aries doesn't see the potential value in the nice, safe 'middle-road' Libra wears down into a ditch, but a Ram would rather take a chance now and then on the path to the right or the fork to the left - and see what happens.  It's exciting.  And that (to look at the other side) is one of the qualities Libra admires
