When Venus, goddess of love and beauty, claimed Librans for her own, did she curse them to perpetually be taken advantage of in relationship?
Libra, why do you give too much? It’s true that Libran types are relaters. It’s also true that someone with strong Libran influence would rather be in a relationship than not. And it’s true that a Venus-kissed individual can lose themselves in love. But why does Libra give too much?
Libra, you give because you love the sensation of being in love
For you, falling in love and being in love mean never having to worry about what’s fair. People in love are inherently generous and thoughtful when those happy chemicals are swimming around in their brains. Fairness is not an issue when you’re in love. This solves a lot of problems for you, because you can be over-generous and too thoughtful all the time, whether you are in love or not.
Libra, you have strong sense of fairness and balance to begin with
You will often give too much in order to correct a perceived imbalance. In doing so, you can violate your own boundaries and drain away your energy, all in the name of doing the “right” thing, or being kind or being nice. If you are continually drawn to relationship, but then lose yourself in it, what to do?
Libra, you give because you are at your best…
…when in relationship (whether romance or friendship) with people who give and take in fairly equal measure. You also do well with people who are inherently generous because you will naturally balance the situation by giving back.
Libra, give until it feels good, and no further
The best thing for you to do is to be selective about who you relate with and to keep an eye on your own boundaries. If that best friend keeps taking advantage or that boyfriend keeps crossing your boundaries, think again. It may not be love or friendship operating there and you may need to hold a stronger line. And knowing that you go into the situation with a tendency toward giving and a fascination for romance can equip you to keep taking care of yourself even when the hormones are raging. And when you give to others, don’t forget to give to yourself too.
