Libra is one of the most romantic signs in the zodiac, so it’s no surprise that Libra season is generally full of love, commitment, and beauty. If you’ve been hoping to rejuvenate your love life or deepen your connection with a certain someone, this is the time to capitalize off the moment, because Mercury Retrograde is over and the universe is ready for romance—just so long as you are, too.
No, seriously. It doesn’t matter if you’re single with more prospects or in a long-term relationship, it’s time to bat your lashes, bite your lip, and send that risky text. The truth is, sometimes when we get comfortable with someone, we sort of just move past the flirty phase for a more casual way of communicating. But let’s face it: Flirting is fun, it’s flattering, and it keeps things interesting. It’ll make you feel closer to your person and remind them that no matter how long you’ve been together, you still desire them the way you did when you first met. And if you’re single, well, it’s time to push aside any self-consciousness you may have and put yourself out there. There’s a particularly flirtatious energy in the air right now, and trust me, you’re not the only one who’s going to feel it!
Surround your person (and yourself) with beauty.
Here’s the thing: Libra loves beauty. Aesthetics are sort of its jam. So if you’re hoping to improve your love life right now, putting a little effort into the appearance of things really won’t hurt. Dress in a way that makes you feel attractive (because when you feel good in your own skin, your confidence will be magnetic to others). Buy your person flowers just because or take them on a surprise date to an art gallery. Wake up early to watch the sunrise or have a movie night and put on the most gorgeous film you’ve ever seen. What exactly you choose to do is less important than the fact that you’re choosing to explore this beauty together.
Invite your person to indulge in luxury with you.
Libra is a sensual sign with a taste for opulence, so if there’s any time worth doing something bougie with your person, it’s now. Reserve a table at a fancy restaurant you might otherwise save for special occasions, book a couples massage, or take a last-minute romantic getaway—whatever it is, make sure it’s something you might not usually do. Getting away from your usual routine (or even your normal environment) will shake things up and really spotlight the fact that this is about the two of you and no one else. Besides, there’s something sort of intimate about creating these special moments with someone.
Practice acts of selflessness.
In love, Libra tends to be an incredibly giving partner—which has its upsides and downsides, of course. But in healthy moderation, selflessness in relationships can be incredibly appealing, because at our core, we all want to feel special and worthy of sacrifice. If there’s someone you’ve been hoping to lock down, or even if you’re already in a relationship, do something unexpected and special for your person. If you can’t agree on a restaurant, let them choose where to eat—or, if your person is someone who gets stressed out making plans, take the reins and do everything for them. Buy them their favorite candy while you’re at the grocery store just to show them you were thinking about them. Offer to help them with a problem they’ve been struggling with, even if that just means being an ear to listen. Just show them that they matter to you, even in the little ways.
