Saturn and Libra in Love
In Love, Saturn and Libra are both logical and unique in their emotional approach to love and commitment.
Libras of all genders may shy away from long-term or monogamous relationships, in order to preserve their personal freedoms, independence, and privacy. This is a valid and healthy choice if you are happy with it.
Your best prospects in Love are with a partner who values fairness and equality as much as you do. You will benefit emotionally, physically, and spiritually from finding a partner who is neither intimidated by your high standards or values.
You might pair up with a spiritually-minded Aquarius. Besides a fellow Libra, Aquarius has the most similar compassionate and humanitarian mindset—making you a team to be reckoned with.

A Leo may be too self-indulged for you. A Virgo can be too dramatic for you. A Pisces may be too detached for you.

5 Little-Known Facts About Saturn in Libra
When Saturn enters into Libra, then there is a pretty good chance that you will feel a number of differences that are related to this particular combination.
For many, the difficulty is in just not knowing how it could have an impact on them, which is why identifying several facts that surround it will always prove to be rather useful to most people.
1. You balance freedom with security.
One of the first things that you will feel is the need to try to balance both freedom with security and this is not always going to be the easiest of things to achieve.
However, you have the determination to chase after this balance as you know that it will be the best thing for everybody involved, and will seek to find the easiest route out there in order to do this.
2. You could have an issue with commitment.
As Saturn comes into the equation, you may discover that there is a slight problem when it comes to commitment on your side of things.
However, the uncertainty that can surround you with this part of your life will then diminish when you get to the point of Saturn leaving the space as you will then feel more sure about your thoughts and feelings rather than the slightly mixed up nature of what you experience at this time.
3. The female is honest as well as fair.
You will also find that the female in this situation is going to generally be rather honest and fair in everything that they do.
This can even be taken to extremes where their honesty is perhaps not always wanted, but they are not afraid to hold back in making their feelings known.
At least in this situation, you know exactly where you stand at all times.
4. You value equality.
There is also a real sense that you value equality when it comes to relationships, and this is even more important to the man that is affected by this celestial combination.
They want everything to be even as the idea of something being one-sided really does fill them with dread.
They will push for this equality even more so when Saturn appears but it will still exist even after it has left the house.
5. There is a need to develop structure and to plan.
Saturn is going to push you into feeling as if you need to develop both structure and a plan into your life so you are able to then regain control over it.
You may be at the point where you are of the opinion that things have spun out of your control, but all is not lost as Saturn is going to help you to pull things back together.
Overall, Saturn in Libra is going to be a very positive influence that will allow you to get a better handle on things as they are at this moment in time.
However, it will require some organisation on your part, but you can pretty much achieve anything that you then want in life.
Be aware of the trap of lingering fear, and avoid falling into that dark place. You may decide to be single because you are scared to offer love and be rejected, or because you do not wish to be with anyone who has wanted to be with you.
Saturn wants to see you happy. Saturn in Libra is here to protect you as you run the personal growth gauntlet, and then move on to serious romantic relationships.
Saturn wants you to follow Rules and be aware of the Limitations of Reality so that you don’t get blindsided by it later.
