If you have Mars in Libra with Venus in Aries

you are . . .

The Perfect Lover in Pursuit

The best part of sex for you is always the anticipation. You enjoy the excitement of the chase, the gentle swordplay of meaningful flirtation and the thrill of impending conquest. This is not to say that you are uninterested in the act itself, but the physical finality of orgasm has only a limited charm for you. Given your restless and essentially intellectual approach to sex the completion of the drama is often just an excuse to go out and begin a new conquest.

Since you are one of the most intense and uncompromising of the Mars in Libra Lovers the world of real sex and real relationships will often disappoint you. You are in love with an ideal. Certain people at certain times may approach this ideal and you will gladly give them your affection but, since they are human, the can never maintain this perfect state for very long. The repeated failure of the real world to give you what you want may cause you to give up on love and settle for mere companionship, a reasonable compromise though one that is certain to leave you bored and dissatisfied.



Since this is a rare combination we do not have many recent examples but the historical ones are fairly amazing. We have Sigmund Freud (born May 6, 1856 adb) who devised a theory of human behavior based on sex even though his own interest in the subject seems to have been largely intellectual. By age 40 he confessed that his sex drive had significantly diminished and, in his personal life, he held firm to the strict morality of his time.·

The strict morality of the Renaissance philosopher and Catholic martyr, Sir Thomas More (born Feb. 15, 1478 adb,) was more troublesome. After giving up the idea of becoming a priest because he was afraid he would not be able to maintain a vow of celibacy, More insisted on a strict adherence to Christian principles and practices both for himself and his family. In the perfect world he described in his book Utopia, Sir Thomas allowed that sex would exist only as means of procreation. Unfortunately for More, King Henry VIII lacked his moral rectitude and when the philosopher, who had become one of the king’s closest advisors, objected to Henry’s plan to break with the Catholic Church so that he could marry Ann Boleyn, the vengeful monarch had his executed.·

Television evangelist Jimmy Swaggart (born March 15, 1935 adb) had no trouble passing moral judgment on the behavior of other people, in particular his rival preachers, but was forced into a tearful “mea culpa” when he was caught trolling for prostitutes. Also in the group, and born on the same day, are Abraham Lincoln (born Feb. 12, 1809 adb) and Charles Darwin (born Feb. 12, 1809 adb.)
