The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of both Signs. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.
It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these.

Associating Excitation strength for Libra: the conciliator. Summer’s “daytime” is over. “Nighttime” takes over: One withdraws from oneself in order to make oneself present to the other, in order to get in touch as equals with the outside world. One exchanges, communicates, one seeks dialogue with an environment henceforth considered as a partner. One forms partnerships, one socializes, one cuts corners and disregards or transcends differences so as to link things together.
Differentiating Inhibition strength for Scorpio: the opponent. One perceives first and foremost what distinguishes, differentiates or separates beings, objects, feelings or ideas: one dissects, one discriminates, one split hairs, one refuses too easy associations or similarities. One systematically emphasizes what contrasts and separates: nitpicking, adding fuel to the fire, widening the gaps, standing out at every opportunity, triggering splits, hitting a nerve, accentuating contrasts.
Negative induction for Scorpio: the insightful. The associating Excitation focuses onto a narrow field: sectarian alliances, clannishness, mafia, close ties, demanding oaths, exclusive and closed unions, exacting interlockings. Focus on the most minute details, on the flaws of a contract; intense perception of time: critical juncture, historical moment.
Inhibition quickness for Libra: the sidestepper. Defence reactions are quick, smooth, timely: fear is mastered. One slips between obstacles, one avoids brutal confrontations, one learns to use the social codes that divert animal aggressivity: politeness, courtesy, diplomacy, subtleties of public speaking. The mind performs quickly fine distinctions, meticulous analyses. With the Sense of opposites: arbitrations, nuances, search for balance.
Inhibition quickness for Scorpio: the crafty. The Scorpio is an inhibited person with ultra-fast defence systems: he’s a motocross topnotcher. Clever, subtle, crafty, skillful, he slips through nets, zigzags between obstacles. His mind quickly grasps how beings and things function behind the scenes. He brilliantly knows how to use evasive promises and detailed threats, always ready to dodge as and when necessary, standing firm about the content while being very flexible in form.
Sense of opposites for Libra: the arbiter. Opposites are associated: black-and-white choices are no longer an option. One compares antagonist elements, analyses their connections and interactions, weighs the pros and cons, strives to make non-exclusive choices. The element that was not chosen is necessary complementary, is a partner to be respected. Hence a relative indecision: the perception of antagonisms and the sensitivity to divergences is associated to a refusal of any segregation. Moderate decisions, balanced choices are factors for twinges, for dilemmas that enhance thinking: the dread of misalliance or the desire not to make mistakes subserve a careful consideration.
Sense of proportions for Scorpio: the double-crosser. The Sense of opposites gives way to the Sense of syntheses: one must strike a subtle balance between the taste for sharp contrasts and the unity of behaviours. The concentrated associativity requires to unite two opposites into one perspective, while the differentiating Inhibition maintains antagonisms. It’s the world of double-crossing: one deals with one’s adversary so as to better fight him and to bring him onto one’s ground; one makes a deal with the devil so that good should prevail. One stands on pivots, on dividing lines, conducive to underhand double deals. One partners closely with one’s rival in order to better tie him up.
Blocking Inhibition weakness for Libra: the beyond-control. One refuses any limit, any constraint, any authority, any safeguard, any border: thoughtless universalism, headlong rush into all dangers, “dysfunction of all senses” (Rimbaud). Absolute freedom - therefore excluding any discipline - leads to licentiousness, to debauchery. The content free from any container becomes shapeless, invertebrate. Rejection of restrictive norms and binding commitments. One doesn’t defend, build or safeguards anything.
Unblocking Excitation weakness for Scorpio: the prisoner. Locked up in the cell of one’s singularity, one is not able anymore to step outside oneself, outside one’s boundaries, to break free, to surpass oneself. One stagnates in the doldrums, one wades through the quagmire, ones sinks into the swamp. Decay, ghetto, oppressive environment, life sentence, prisoner of fate. In order to be oneself nevertheless, one sticks to one’s miasmas, one’s failures, one’s turpitude; one becomes even more negative by walking round and round in the prison of one’s singularity.
Unadapted Excitation slowness for Libra: the fanciful. The need for control, mastery, organization runs in a void, onto nonexistent or inappropriate objects. Persisting imaginary actions: paranoia, illusions of subjective power, obstinate building of castles in the air, vain tilting at windmills. One perseverates into glorified non-commitments, one gives in to romantic bewitchments or to impressions of metaphysical omnipotence, etc.
Unadapted Excitation slowness for Scorpio: the vampire. Persistence of haunting images, need to organize and control in a closed environment: one feels vested with magical, unique, secret powers; one draws power from one’s immutable fixedness, from one’s intolerant subjectivity, from one’s systematic oppositions — futile just as well as haughty. One pulls the strings from behind the scenes while living as a parasite, at the expense of others’ sorrow, shamelessly, with a cynical domineering mindset.
Egalitarian phase for Libra: the leveler. Associativity evens out: one refuses to choose, one wants to be on good terms with everyone, one flirts with one’s enemies, one associates indiscriminately with all environments without picking sides. Possible non-violence turns into inconsistency. Whatever the circumstances are, one plays it open-minded: compromises. Corners are systematically cut. At worst, one plays the game well with the same contempt or the same indifference towards allies or adversaries. The heart of hearts and the social environment are evened out: one is worth what one’s environment or time is worth; one spends one’s time being fashionable in disregard of any authenticity.
Paradoxical phase for Scorpio: the schemer. Losing the sense of intensities, the Scorpio reacts strongly to weak signals. His discriminating mind will therefore take above all else an interest into what’s mysterious, hidden, secret — no matter whether true or fake. Frenzied curiosity for what’s marginal or underlying; chase for an insane dominion over others by giving the impression that one knows a great deal about what others ignore: hints, veiled threats, blackmail, insidious propaganda. Over-negativism: dramatizing, painting a bleak picture, systematic pessimism, ill-boding, etc. Over-scheming: one wants to win on all fronts by excessively manipulating what’s known and unknown to the others.
