Libra-Scorpio Key Personality Traits
Libra-Scorpios are less social, deeper, and more intense than a generic Libra. Observant, analytical, and curious, a Libra-Scorpio wants to know and can sense what lies beneath the surface of social interactions. Libra-Scorpios are cloak-and-dagger Libras who often hide their strength and power beneath a bright and charming veneer. They are communicators and critical thinkers who are gifted at ferreting out the good and bad in others and aren't afraid to be openly honest, even if their openness gets them into trouble.
Libra and Scorpio
Libra, the Cardinal Air sign of the zodiac, is the intellectual sign of balance, fair play, and creating harmonious personal relationships. While Scorpio, the deep dark Fixed Water sign of the zodiac, is about experiencing life's emotional extremes.
Cardinal Air and Fixed Water
As Cardinal Air, Libra is bright, breezy, and interactive. As Fixed water, Scorpio, like a swamp, is still and unmoving but teeming with life hidden beneath the surface. When active air skims over water, it creates ripples, the more active the air, the more the water stirs up and brings what's unseen to the surface. Libra-Scorpios are captivating individuals who can excite and draw you to them with their charm and intelligence, but cross them, and they can quickly become unhinged, out of control, and act solely on their emotions.
Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by the planet Venus. As ruler of Libra, Venus is more outgoing, active, intellectual, and interested in justice and fairness. This more egalitarian Venus takes the lead, but the power, passion, and intensity of Pluto and Mars, Scorpio's rulers, underlie her Venusian endeavors. Additionally, Libra-Scorpios were born in the Gemini Decan of Libra, ruled by Mercury, the messenger and trickster planet of the zodiac. Combining these three planets can create an intelligent, magnetic individual who possesses the power of seduction and is quick to say exactly what's on their mind.
In matters of love and romance, Libra-Scorpio cuspers should stay miles away from possessive individuals. It's likely a Libra would be the best match for a Libra-Scorpio, because Libra is one of the least possessive signs of the zodiac. These two can easily talk about their inner feelings, fantasies, and wishes with each other. Plus, they're both open lovers who believe in unconventional love and can move on quickly if the relationship falters.

The Astrological Logic of Cusps
Social psychologists say that important personality traits develop by first grade. The logic behind the cusps is the progressed Sun, which moves forward one degree each year. This means that between ages 0-3, when your progressed Sun entered Scorpio, you began integrating Scorpio traits into your still budding Libra personality and by school age you were a bit of a Libra-Scorpio blend.
