never less than a virtue when it's sincere, as it invariably is with Libra.
Unfortunately, other people may not see it that way. Librans are always being unfairly labeled by other Sun Signs as unreliable, accused of not following through on Tuesday, what they said on Monday last. That's why they often feel more comfortable when they're dealing with one another. At least, two Librans will usually give each other credit for decency of motive, regardless of personal disagreements, and they'll have more than their 'fair' share of those. Despite one Libra person's vacillation, the other Libran is sympathetically aware that when his (or her) mind is finally made up, there will be a grim determination to follow through that nothing short of a cannon ball could stop. Each Libra knows the other Libra's mind is firm, once it's been firmed. I mean, really, what could be more logical than that? Before firming, it's like clay, easily changed from one form to another - until the final molding. Then the decision is popped into the potter's oven to be glazed, never failing to come out hard and tough, resistant and enduring.
Two Librans of the same or opposite sexes, adults or children, will spend a great deal of their time together talking. All the subjects will be enthralling because of the logical, intellectual aspect Libra brings to the analysis. Some will concern vital issues of the day involving politics, ecology, and so forth; some will be petty, inconsequential matters, like what are the best kind of strings for a guitar or tennis racquet, or whether the window should be closed or open at night when one is sleeping. I'll settle that last argument for them myself. Open. Definitely open. Most especially with Libra, because all Air Signs tend to have poor circulation, and must breathe fresh air while they're sleeping or they'll never achieve stable health and longevity.
But the subject matter isn't what's important in a discussion between these two Venus-ruled people, nor is the question of who wins and who loses important. What's important to Librans is the excitement of a mutually stimulating intellectual debate, which they find mentally energizing, like a tonic. Unlike their debates with other Sun Signs, verbal exchanges between these two usually end in a draw anyway. Each of them starts out choosing a side, and as things progress, they begin taking a different side, then trading sides in the middle, until an onlooker is totally confused. All the while, the two Libra opponents are happily enjoying themselves. As long as these two people are given a reasonable length of time in which to discuss matters with one another and make up their minds, there's no trauma involved. It's when other Sun Signs rush them into decisions that their Scales dip out of balance, causing more mental, emotional, and physical damage than anyone would ever guess - except another Libran. Any Venus-ruled person beset with multiple problems simultaneously, each demanding priority attention, can be pressed beyond endurance, whether it's Libra President Jimmy Carter or your own Libra friend, relative, neighbour, business associate, lover or mate.
An excellent example of Libra's ability to stick to a decision, once made, is India's Mahatma Gandhi's amazing will power in holding fast to his firm faith in passive nonresistance as the only path to freedom from tyranny and a lasting peace. The caste system of his country was an affront to his Libra sense of justice, dramatically demonstrated by his adoption of a daughter of an 'untouchable.'
Libra and Libra have more in common than just their mutual dimples and ear-to-ear smiles, their indecisiveness, and their concern for fairness. An office, classroom, store, or home where you see two of them floating on their pink clouds, or hanging around in their helicopters, will probably be tastefully decorated, most likely in pastel shades, or at the very least, in a subdued, matching colour scheme, or they won't be there very long. Nor will they be comfortable in the midst of loud noises or jarring sounds. Very few Librans are construction workers, not just because of the ear-splitting offense of riveting and such, but also because the Venus influence causes them to recoil from soiled clothes. All forms of dirt are displeasing to them aesthetically. Ugliness of any kind quickly disturbs the Libra equilibrium. A Libra ambulance driver is certain to be a most
