    Friendship Compatibility between Libra and Libra

    Libra and Libra
    - Friendship Compatibility Profile :

    When two Librans form a friendship, they form one of the most soothing, agreeable, wellbalanced relationships around. The Libra duo hums with harmony and seeks to spread this evenness over everything with which they come in contact. This pair actively works against unfairness and injustice, and their commitment and devotion to one another makes theirs a delightful combination and an asset to their community and their social circle.
    Libra always wants to be well-liked, sometimes to a fault. They are too eager to please and will back down in the face of a conflict, thus making them appear weak and insincere at times. The Libra-Libra duo understand this about each other and rarely does one force their friend to compromise their sensibilities. Libra is most balanced while in any kind of relationship, and each of them love having someone to look up to, admire and dote upon. Cultural awareness and enjoyment of social activities render them happiest when they have someone with whom to share their adventures.
    Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus. Theirs is a blissful, fun-filled friendship full of beauty and pleasure. It's no wonder the two stay friends! Sometimes to the negative, they spoil themselves and allow an indulgence and lack of self-control for sweets or material goods. Also, Librans are prone to a wave of laziness every once in awhile, which could cause a wrinkle between them. Overall, both enjoy reclining and munching on a stem of grapes like Greek gods!
    Libra is an Air Sign. They look at the world through intellectual glasses and take pleasure in communicating with people. Persuasive, courteous and diplomatic, Libras are the fair judges of the world. The two together get along swimmingly and resolve even the most minor dispute with decency and honor.
    Libra is a Cardinal Sign, and this quality allows them to initiate new projects and motivate others. Once Libra has an objective in mind, look out world! The dedication and strength of two Libras banding together will make things happen. As long as both friends are mindful of each other's slightly fickle streak, they will get along great.
    The best aspect of the Libra-Libra friendship is their incredible sense of diplomacy, kindness and shared respect for one another. Their respect, admiration and devotion are deep, and their loyalty to each other incomparable.
