Besides, their dress, fashion, pleasant perfumery, and sweet smile are very enticing. Librans' passion grows suddenly and dies out quickly being a movable sign. But, at the time the Libran enjoys, he enjoys immensely in the company of the opposite sex.

As houses, 2, 7, and 11 indicate the partner in life and the house 2 and 7 and 11 indicate the partner in life and the house 2 and 7 are ruled by Mars and 11 by Sun, the partner in life will be short tempered and rash. They may listen to the Librans but do just as they desire. They will be mostly of Martian type. Hence Libra-borns have to tone down the partner's fiery nature and by their diplomacy and tact, maintain peace at home. Those who are born in Gemini and Aquarius will match the Librans very well. Pisces, Capricorn and Cancer will not agree with them. Librans will manage with others.
