She'll provide him with all the arguments he could possibly use and enough mental challenges to last for several lifetimes. When the Libra man gets restless and wants to roam - alone and free where he can once more accept the favors of a harem of females, the Aries woman probably won't ask him shyly why he's leaving.
She's more likely to shout, "Where do you think you're going, Charlie? She might remind him then, that seashells are empty. Instead of throwing an emotional tantrum which may frighten him into splitting so fast he forgets to take along his classical tape cassettes and his favorite baby-blue angora bathrobe , she'd stand a better chance of winning which is what all Rams want to do all the time if she curbs her Mars temper and uses his own Libra logic as a weapon. Which is only fair, since he's always using it against her.
While you're getting high on a steady flow of casual affairs, remember that after you pour all the wine out of a flask, you have left only an empty bottle. Then the party's over. Of course, you can always fill it up again from your inexhaustible source, can't you sweetheart? Or is your capacity to love really inexhaustible? Why don't you turn some of those romantic urges you express so well this works better if she's wearing his baby-blue bathrobe - especially this next part into other creative channels, like art, music, writing, or acting?
I could help you. I have a brain equally as brilliant as yours - even though our bodies are made differently - because you're a man and I'm a woman. The last reminder is a necessity. When a Libra male is led into thinking about the differences between the sexes, he's more or less helpless. Not that the typical Aries woman will have the patience to accept the foregoing advice. She's more likely to yell at him to "Leave!
Who needs you anyway! But I thought I'd throw it in anyway, for those Aries girls who think they are emotionally mature enough to cool it with this man. It's really the only way with Libra. Fairness, logic, and reason. No skyrockets. They disturb his sense of harmony and topple his equilibrium, which is always dangerously seesawing at best.
Besides, if you read the section just before this, you'll recall that Air Signs can be goaded into tornado behavior that could make even a Ram run for shelter. There are so many good things about this blend of Air and Fire between Aries and Libra, it's a shame for them to spend their time bickering. The typical Aries woman isn't looking for a muscle man. She wants a lover whose mental muscles have biceps. The Libra man's mind does. All she needs to do is choose a subject, and he'll have a thousand and one things to say about it, pro and con. Since just a touch of controversy intrigues her, she'll honestly enjoy the debates they have, as long as they both play by the rules and refrain from punching each other in their complexes or tramping on one another's delicate and sensitive Achilles' heels.
He'll find this an easier counsel to accept than she will. Tact and courtesy come naturally to Libra, but such consideration for the other person comes hard to Aries. This woman isn't basically selfish - she's thoughtless. She truly never means to be rude or unkind, and certainly not toward the man she loves. She simply doesn't think or count to ten before she speaks her mind. And her mind can be quite opinionated.
Don't forget that Aries is the Sun Sign of the benevolent dictator, regarding both sexes. Benevolent dictators are genuinely concerned about people, compassionate, generous, and devoted to the cause of everyone's welfare. But they don't bother to ask the people they're so loyally championing what it is they might want. Never mind. Like the benevolent dictator, no matter what the people want, Aries will see that they get it - because Aries knows what's best for them better than they do. Warmth and arrogance make a frustrating blend, but all Fire Signs possess the combination, making their friends, relatives, and lovers love them and want to strangle them by turns.
When someone points out to a girl Ram that she's being unreasonable and impulsive - and the pointing out is done with tact, gentleness, and affection, she'll never fail to listen, quickly see the error of her ways she does everything quickly , and try hard to please by making sweeping changes in her original views. But when she's ordered or forced to halt along some mistaken course she's chosen, there's no way she'll give in. That's too much like retreat and Aries never, but positively never, retreats.
Mars, the planet of war itself - retreat? It will never happen. Since Mars is her ruler and influences all her motivations, strategy, and behavior, you really can't expect this lady to accept dominance or harsh criticism in a docile manner. If anyone can turn the female Ram into a gentle lamb besides Leo - and sometimes Gemini, Sag, and Aquarius , it's a Libra man. He'll gently correct her, try to make her see her mistakes in an affectionate and tender way.
And nine times out of ten it will work like a charm. The tenth time he should leave well enough alone and consider himself fortunate. You can't win them all. The trouble is that Libra would like to win them all - every debate, discussion, argument, dispute, and disagreement. So would Aries. So unless one of them accepts defeat graciously at least part of the time, there's never going to be peace in this relationship - and peace is what the Libra man needs as desperately as the Aries woman he loves needs excitement.
She would profit by trying to give him the peace he needs, because some of it would then drape its soft clouds over her too, softening her disappointments and calming her fears of rejection. He'll likewise profit by trying to give her the excitement she needs, because it will shake him from his spells of Libra lethargy and keep his Scales swinging in balance, instead of dipping one way or the other and getting stuck there.
The Libra man's unconquerable optimism when his Scales aren't in a down-swing mood of fretting futilely will strike a spontaneous chord of response in the Aries woman's heart, for it matches her own bright faith in tomorrow. Her naive confidence that whatever she believes intensely enough and long enough just has to come true will strike the same kind of response in him, often moving him to tears for he is sentimental.
She'll like that in him, the sentiment. That's why she fell in love with him, because he's the combination of strength and tenderness she seeks. But she'll become impatient and accuse him of being lazy, when he's in one of his restful periods, not comprehending the necessity for his Venus-ruled nature to rest between long spells of energetic activity. Her own nature is different, her metabolism is so charged with vitality, she scarcely needs any rest at all - or so it will sometimes seem to him.
His kindness and friendliness are the two qualities she loves most in him. The very same two qualities he loves most in her. They are both kind, both friendly. In a world full of people who are cool, detached, and disinterested, this is not a small thing - and it forms an amazingly strong foundation for their relationship. Being a Sun Sign Pattern, very few of the disputes between the Libra man and Aries woman will happen on the way to or from the bedroom. Especially if she buys him a king-size water mattress. To a Libra male, drifting off to romance or dreamland within the soft folds of one of those undulating, billowy contraptions is very close to his idea of heaven.
They may fight in the kitchen, the den, the front room, the back porch, the garden, the basement, attic, or garage - but when it's time to kiss goodnight, it will be time to make up for these two. The reconciliation based on the undeniable sexual attraction between them may not, however, last eternally without that Sun-Moon harmony assistance.
He's gentle, poetic, imaginative, considerate, charming, and romantic, all of which sends little tingles and shivers down her spine, from the top of her hard head to the tips of her busy toes. Their physical relationship at first seems like the tangible expression of every love song she's ever dreamed over while she was waiting for the paragon of virtue she's imaged in her heart to come to life.
That's the trouble. Making this man come to life.
Linda Goodman's Sun Signs: Libra
The Libra approach to sex is mental, light, and airy. Libra men seek shimmering ideals and far-out experiences of erotic expression and sensual feeling, sometimes so far out, sometimes soaring so high above her head - she'll long for something solid to grab. Like two warm arms and a burning passion you can touch, as well as dream about. Ethereal love and aesthetic sexual response can leave Aries somewhat chilly. Female Rams need plenty of warm affection and fiery lovemaking to feel completely fulfilled in a physical relationship. With this man she may be left feeling a little empty.
Something is missing. Exactly what she can't say, maybe the last line of the song. If the Moon of either was in any other astrological sign at birth, it may be elusive. But the search for it will be delightful. A Libra man who memorized the old nursery rhyme in school that went: "Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater - had a wife and couldn't keep her - put her in a pumpkin shell, and there he kept her very well," had better check with Mother Goose again.
An Aries woman will not sit happily in a pumpkin shell while he glides gracefully around the town, charming all the girls - or while he hides in the library, polishing his Libra mind. With her, he shouldn't expect marriage to balance his Scales - unless it's a complete mental and emotional partnership. Still, if he's honest, he'll realize that's the kind of relationship he really needs himself. When all the parties are over.
The Libra people who read this chapter may claim I haven't been fair with them, since I'm an Aries myself. They're always claiming somebody hasn't been fair with them. Are reckless Rams envious of the marvelous tranquility of the Venus-ruled people when their Libra Scales are perfectly balanced, as they sometimes are? Rams are not envious of Libran tranquility, even though astrology insists they should be, the two Sun Signs being opposed to one another on the karmic wheel of Life, therefore each lacking what the other possesses.
At least, the typical Arian will never openly admit that he or she is envious of Libra, however much the Rams would secretly like to imitate Libra's lovely calm and tranquil equilibrium. The derivation of the word "equilibrium" is the word "libra. Either way, the word and the Sun Sign are linked. Nothing is more important to a Libran than equilibrium. They do so hate to lose it. Nonetheless, they frequently do. One of the times the Ram secretly envies the Libran is when an Aries person makes a swift Mars-like decision, then is forced to face the inevitable opposition Libra-type emotional trauma that always follows.
Did I do right or wrong? Should I have said "yes" or "no"? Believe me, the Arian indecision after the fact is more painful than the indecision before the fact from which Librans suffer - and certainly not as constructive. No one can be more charming, intelligent, and optimistic than Librans who have a firm grip on their Scales.
They're simply great at getting groups of people to blend harmoniously and smoothing over tensions when they're not personally involved. Aries men and women admire and respect Libra for the Venus-type virtues they themselves lack. Does that sound like an order? One of the most noticeable differences between Aries and Libra is that the simplest Aries statement somehow comes out sounding like a demand. Even when Rams ask a question, it often seems more like they're telling you than asking you.
On the other hand, we must be careful to look at both sides, since we're dealing with the Scales - on the other 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? That's why Libra can argue for hours with Aries and leave the impression 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 win 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. 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 naive 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 wish 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? Toss a coin or a feather - or just do what you instinctively feel is right, then forget it. 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 in the opposite Sun Sign of Aries. It works both ways. If you want to test people's grasp of astrological knowledge, ask them which one of these two Sun Signs has the most violent temper. Before you jump to any hasty conclusions, think. Libra is Air and Aries is Fire.
Fire seems more volatile and violent than Air, but Libra is the Cardinal of the three Air Signs - and Cardinal means "leader," among other things. Aries is also Cardinal, yet you must remember that in Nature air is not as innocent an element as it seems when it becomes aggressive. Have you ever watched a nice, calm, "nonviolent" tornado, cyclone, or hurricane?
The quiet steam, composed of moist "air," that drifts out of the spout of a teakettle can be turned into a force powerful enough to rip up the ground for miles around. Also consider that the chief constituent of air is nitrogen. Nitrogen may be an inert gas, but it's the principle reason why explosives explode. So - which one has the most dangerous temper, Aries or Libra? You decide. But don't ask Libra to decide, if you're in a hurry for an answer. I didn't say which one is the noisiest when angry. I said the most dangerous.
If you study this paragraph carefully, you'll see why people are puzzled when most astrology books, referring to the Venus rulership of Libra, describe all Librans as peaceful, gentle, beautiful, sweet, and calm. They are all those things - half the time. And I suppose we must confess that Aries could profit by trying to imitate some of those positive Libra personality patterns. These two will at times argue instinctively, but in all fairness, when a conflict between a Libran and a Ram develops, the object of the quarrel to Libra is usually to win and achieve eventual peace and justice.
The object of most quarrels to Arians is usually to win and prove they're right even when they're wrong to satisfy the considerable Mars ego. An association between Aries and Libra, influenced by the Sun Sign Pattern, is in most cases a fortunate experience for both. But if there's a negative Sun-Moon aspect between their horoscopes, there can be some fiery and windy periods of tension and conflict.
With a harmonious Luminary exchange, Libra will provide a rich atmosphere of freedom of thought and action that will richly nourish the self-confidence of the Rams. The typical Libran will usually treat Aries with gentleness, seldom with tyranny or harsh words - and this is an attitude designed to bring out the very best in the Mars nature, to encourage the finest qualities of the Ram to flower.
Instead of trying to force Aries into any particular pattern of behavior, Libra will more often recognize the Arian individuality and respect it. Under the natural instinct to imitate the opposite Sun Sign, a Ram will frequently discover that a relationship with a Libran friend, relative, business associate, lover, or mate leaves him or her with the Mars courage and intense drive intact, but softened into a more tolerant and balanced Venus pattern. Conversely, the Libran man, woman, or child will respond to the Arian friend, relative, business associate, lover, or mate by finding his or her indecision gradually turning into a firmer purpose, inspired by the Aries ambition into higher achievement, on both a personal and a public level.
As with all vibrations, this combination works best when it's composed of two members of the opposite sex. With a Libran and a Ram of the same sex, a recurring sense of envy, resentment, and competition will often trouble the relationship unless the Suns, Moons, and Ascendents of each are in friendly aspect in the two nativities. The Ram will have to try to understand the Libra's very real need to conserve his or her energy and not waste it unnecessarily, as Aries is often driven to do with Mars energy.
It's Libra's way of maintaining physical and emotional poise - not laziness. When the Ram sincerely tries to see both sides of any disagreement between them and makes a genuine effort to sympathize with the Libran Venus nature, the Libra man or woman will return the favor with much affection and cheerful encouragement, which will considerably lift the Aries spirit. Librans would much rather be happy and pleasant than cranky and argumentative, if Aries will only play fair with them.
Someone once remarked that Librans are the positive, living proof of reincarnation, because nobody could become that impossible in just one lifetime. Present a Libran with this theory, and the reply will be, "Oh, I've heard that about Aries people, but not Libra. Isn't Libra symbolized by the Scales of Justice and Truth? I don't see anything "impossible" in trying to be reasonable. On the other hand, Aries is a most unreasonable sign, and I think He or she will dimple, all smiles and sweetness again since Librans love sweets , and the argument will be over.
It's just as well, the Ram couldn't have won it anyway. Besides, losing an argument with Libra is usually beneficial in the long run, because the Venus judgment is nearly always right. By the time it's so endlessly weighed and measured and balanced - and discussed and debated - it certainly ought to be. He was a lovely boy, clad in skeleton leaves and the juices. When he saw that. It's sad, but often true.
An Aries man will at some time in his relationship with a Virgo woman feel the need to prove to her that his ideas and ideals are sensible, that he is emotionally mature - and in general, he will try to arouse her enthusiasm for his plans, his ambitions, and his feelings.
It's not that she isn't pleased, but her response, if she's a typical Virgin, may leave him with a vague sense that she somehow disapproves of what he's been trying to tell her. She probably does. She may wholeheartedly support most of what he's projecting and imagining, but there will nearly always be some small portion of his narrative she feels is off-center, or not well enough thought out and constructed. Virgos are like that. They spot the weak links in the chain and warn you about them before the chain breaks.
We all really ought to be grateful to them for this neat habit they have of pointing out flaws before it's too late, so the bottom line and the end result of every venture will be more perfectly successful.

Most people are properly grateful for Virgo's ability to bring calm order out of chaotic disorder. Not the Ram. After a time, he may angrily accuse her of having no sensitivity and no imagination. He's very wrong. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Linda Goodman's Sun Si Other editions. Error rating book.

The Sun represents vitality, individuality, will-power and creative energy and honours.
For a woman, it also represents her father, and later her husband. The Sun is one of the most important symbols in the birth chart, as much as the Ascendant, then the Moon a bit less for a man , the ruler of the Ascendant and the fast-moving planets. It's element is fire; it is hot and dry, it governs Leo, is in exaltation in Aries and is in analogy with the heart.
It represents the boss, authority, beside the father and the husband ; the age of the Sun goes from 20 years old to about 40, following the Venus age when one is aware of his seductive power. Temperament : Bilious. Characterology : Emotive, Active, Secondary, passionate type. Your entourage is amazed by your energy, your courage and your boldness. Your reactions are quick, even instantaneous. Your enthusiasm prompts you to follow your natural impulses, even though you are not aware of all the consequences of your actions. Above all, you want to live each moment intensely, without fearing the future.
Your enterprising spirit is supported by an acute sense of confrontation. This is Aries answering the call. Any call, provided that there is some degree of new-ness or some challenge. This ability to take action on the spot in response to any stimulation also applies to the area of your relationships: you say outloud what you deem necessary to say, even if it means foolishly upsetting several persons.
