Scorpio and Libra

Currently we have three planets in Scorpio the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter and two planets in Libra, namely Venus and Mars. Here are three quotes from Oscar Wilde, a Sun sign Libra with Mercury in Scorpio, to give a sense of how Scorpio, the sign of deep dark intensity may combine with good, true and beautiful Libra. 
“Each man kills the thing he loves – Some do it with a bitter look / Some with a flattering word / The coward does it with a kiss / The brave man with a sword / Some kill their love when they are young / And some when they are old / Some strangle with the hands of lust / Some with the hands of gold / The kindest use the knife, because / The dead so soon grow cold.” 
“Life cheats us with its shadows. We ask it for pleasure. It gives it to us, with bitterness and disappointment in its train. And we find ourselves looking with a dull heart of stone at the tress of gold-flecked hair that we had once so wildly worshipped and so madly kissed .. In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants. The other is getting it.”
“We are punished for our refusals. Every impulse that we strive to strangle broods in the mind, and poisons us. The body sins once and has done with it, for action is a mode of purification .. The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it and your soul grows sick.”
