I’m hoping the Librans out there in your blog world might be able to help with this one….
How do you know when a Libran genuinely likes you – is attracted to you – as opposed to you just being citizen X and the Mask Of Politesse is simply doing its job?
And particularly when that Libran is already very socially active and always seems to be surrounded by friends and, um, *friends*?
What if you’ve already tangled and you can’t perceive if you’re one pretty flower among many or the Libran secretly has you down as Partner Material?
At the other end of the scale, how do you know if they don’t want you in their orbit any more?

Shy and Socially Challenged Moon in Capricorn
Dear Shy and Socially Challenged Moon in Capricorn,
This is a fantastic question. My theory is that you can tell a Libra is genuinely attracted to you when they ignore you or tone down the hyper-gush. It’s the converse of how Libras treat people they dislike; they up their charm and hyper-gush, like the protective and concealing black ink of an octopus.
Other signs: super-oblique questions to stealthily suss you out, asking what you think of their scent and initiating a political debate. The trick is to sense beyond their words and perceive whether or not their psychic antennae are perked up and probing you for signs of simpatico consciousness.
Or you could wait till Jupiter in Sagittarius, don a garish kaftan or unicorn onesie and hit up the Libra in question with some radical candor.
Transparency is the new “Mysterious.”
