Celebrate the Balance of Giving & Receiving In Libra Season With Some Sweet 69-ing

Okay, now that you’ve survived the Virgo season’s productivity test (and are probably a few spreadsheets wiser for it), it’s time to enter the Libra season’s carefully planned autumnal party. Libra is an air sign and is Venus’s sign of rule. Libra season invites you to fall in love a lot (and make everyone else fall in love with you on the way down) and to take and give in the way that feels right for you. It also brings forth lively intellectual conversation, a sense of aesthetics, and a gut-level need for harmony and justice. This gets us to the position for give-and-take sex that is most glorious: 69.

69 is a position known for being a punchline (and the nicest number), but it can feel hectic and disorganized. While controlling your limbs and technique to ensure that no one receives a knee to the face or an elbow to the stomach, you’re trying to do your thing with your mouth and enjoy all the wonders of your partner giving it their all on you. Even so, the spirit of 69 is all about reciprocity and sexual activity that both partners find enjoyable.

The Libra season is all about finding that delicate balance between giving and receiving, loving and being loved, and enjoying and being enjoyed.

Understanding Your Zodiac Sign’s Ideal Sex Positions Can Revolutionize Your Sexual Future
The AstroTwins describe Libra as being “big on equality and fairness, and you need an open-minded mate who wants to share and share alike.” “You’re a perfect blend of sugar and spice. Although your peace sign abhors conflict, you enjoy debating for amusement only. You want to be around someone who is passionate about a few things without being overbearing.

So, yes, 69 is the topic at hand, but it’s not the only topic at hand. We’re discussing harmony and reciprocity awareness, both of which can be challenging. We all take turns needing to do the caring and being cared for as life becomes unsexy and unbalanced.)

A sense of equilibrium between you and your partner is crucial in all relationships, as is the discernment to know when you need to slightly reestablish that equilibrium. It implies that you have the good judgment to pay attention, make an effort to understand their needs and wants, and to both meet those needs and allow yourself to be met (emotionally, physically, whatever). It is therefore helpful to consider the things you can do (both big and small) to find what that sense of balance looks like for you and your partner, even if you aren’t going out and having amusing mutual orgasms (even though oral isn’t for everyone — you can always just play with toys).
