If you’re a Libra (or even just in love with one), you’ve probably wondered about astrological compatibility.
Libras are legendarily sociable, fun, diplomatic people, so it’s natural to assume that they get along with almost anyone. While that can definitely be the case, there are definitely some signs that pair better than others.
Libra and Aries Compatibility
Aries and Libra are polar opposites — literally. They’re 180 degrees apart from each other in the zodiac. Fortunately, this can be a case where opposites attract. When two signs are opposite each other, each one can see qualities that they lack in the other.
There’s also likely to be intense physical chemistry. Of course, this kind of relationship may be short-lived. While Aries’ impulsiveness and ambition can be very attractive to careful, balanced Libra in the beginning, over time, they may lose their appreciation for the Ram’s reckless nature. For things to work out, these signs need to learn to compromise.
Libra and Taurus Compatibility
The Bull is a reliable, stable, protective partner, and Libra will appreciate their dedication to harmony. Both signs like comfort and security, and are likely to find it in each other.
On the flip side, Taurus may not necessarily want to leave the comfort of the nest. While Libra is flexible, sociable, and communicative, Taurus generally isn’t. This rigidity can be a deep source of frustration.
Libra and Gemini Compatibility
Gemini is one of the best potential partners for Libra. The sign of the Twins is known for being very social and chatty, with a deep creative streak. They’re a fantastic source of mental and emotional stimulation for Libra, so boredom will never be an issue.
Since Libras are such good listeners, they’re also great partners for expressive Gemini. This pair is likely to share a very balanced, egalitarian partnership.
Libra and Cancer Compatibility
Libra and Cancer can seem like a great pairing at first blush. Both are emotionally sensitive, thoughtful, and attentive. They want to avoid conflict at almost any cost. Unfortunately, this can be more of a hindrance than a help.
Cancers are deeply subjective by nature. They view things through their own lens, and thus have a hard time seeing from Libras’ rationality- and objectivity-based point of view. They probably won’t understand Libras’ intellectual approach to problem-solving, either, and may even interpret it as coldness or indifference.
Cancers also tend to be more dependent on their partners, while Libras want a more balanced relationship. This can lead to resentment over time, and even a loss of respect.
Libra and Leo Compatibility
Dramatic Leo might seem like an odd pairing for diplomatic Libra, but these signs can really help each other shine. Libras may find Leos’ courage and ability to live their truth inspiring, and Leos will swoon over Libras’ charm.
This is the kind of couple that throws a lot of parties, and loves being the center of a social circle. Out of the public eye, there will be lots of intensity and passion.
This is the kind of partnership where both members’ differences become a source of strength. Libra and Leo complement each other, and are likely to have an easy time communicating, expressing, and balancing their needs and wants.
Libra and Virgo Compatibility
Libra and Virgo are both very intellectual signs, but their differing approaches to the world can be a source of relationship issues.
Libra is naturally diplomatic and enjoys seeing situations from all angles. Virgo, on the other hand, is naturally analytical, will not hesitate to discard a point of view that they think is wrong, and prioritizes correctness over diplomacy.
This can be helpful at times, since Virgo can temper some of Libra’s notorious indecisiveness, but this pair is likely to get on each other’s nerves quite often.
If other personality quirks and placements in their astrological charts fit, then they can learn a lot from each other. If not, there’s likely to be a lot of friction.
Libra and Libra Compatibility
Libra loves harmony, so two Libras together can be one of the smoothest, most peaceful relationships in the whole zodiac. Both partners are charming, diplomatic, and peacekeeping, so expect their home to have a very relaxing, comfortable atmosphere.
Since Libra is so good at getting along with others, this partnership should have no issues with compromise. (If anything, they’re more likely to have trouble making decisions because both partners insist that the other do it.) They’re also likely to have a lot of very deep, stimulating conversations, and satisfying physical intimacy.
Libra and Scorpio Compatibility
Libra and Scorpio tend to experience similar challenges to a Libra and Cancer pairing. Scorpio is naturally deep, intense, and passionate, compared to Libra’s cooler nature.
Libras’ sense of objectivity and diplomacy naturally affords them an emotional buffer that Scorpio lacks. Scorpio will throw themselves headlong into a new interest or fixation, sometimes to the point of obsessiveness.
Libra will probably have a hard time dealing with the intensity of their partner’s feelings. If the physical and emotional bonds aren’t strong enough to weather Scorpio’s storms, then this relationship may not work out.
If both partners can cooperate and develop a project together outside of their relationship, they can be a tremendous force for creativity and achievement.
Libra and Sagittarius Compatibility
This partnership has a lot of potential. Sagittarius is a natural wanderer in search of knowledge and new experiences. Libras are sociable and intellectually stimulating partners. Both signs are all about finding beauty in the world, and Sagittarius can provide plenty of new adventures for them both.
Trouble may arise when diplomatic Libra acquiesces to Sagittarius’ ideas in the interest of getting along. Libra abhors conflict, and their desire to avoid arguments may end up putting them in situations they’re not comfortable with. Sagittarius also tends to be more blunt than Libra, which can end up causing hurt feelings.
Libra and Capricorn Compatibility
Libra and Capricorn are a situation where opposites don’t necessarily complement each other. The Sea-goat is quiet and reserved when compared to social Libra, and tends to be extremely practical in their aspirations and interactions.
Capricorn is hard working and goal oriented, while Libra is all about beauty and art. Their very different values may make it difficult to find common ground.
This partnership can work out well if each member plays to their strengths. Hardworking Capricorn can provide stability, while Libra brings the fun and beauty.
While Libra builds castles in the air, Capricorn can help put foundations under some of them. If their other astrological placements align, this pair can build a very comfortable, stimulating life together.
Libra and Aquarius Compatibility
Aquarians are very good partners for Libras. They share similar relationship values, and Libra is pretty much guaranteed to be captivated by Aquarius’ unique ways. In return, charming Libra will absolutely wow Aquarius.
Both of these signs are very sociable, and the only real difference is their emphasis. While Libra invests most of their energy in very close friends, family, and lovers, Aquarius is all about group activities. Aquarius is also the more decisive of the two signs, which can help balance Libra’s tendency to be egalitarian to a fault.
These signs share the important things. Where they differ, they differ in ways that help enhance each other.
Libra and Pisces Compatibility
Where Libra is the speaker, Pisces is the thinker. Libra enjoys taking in information from all perspectives, absolutely thriving on dialogue with others. Pisces doesn’t offer much in this department, as they tend to prefer to digest knowledge on their own.
Both of these signs are sensitive and dislike conflict, so they’ll rarely argue. If they do, it’s likely to be because of Pisces’ deep sense of compassion. Where Libra believes strongly in fairness and objective justice, Pisces can have a frustrating amount of sympathy.
Both signs may be indecisive, as well, which can lead to stagnation. While this partnership is likely to be very harmonious, it may lack passion.
Libra is the sign of the Scales. People born under it are avid conversationalists, eager to absorb all of the information and new perspectives that they can.
This helps them hone their sense of justice and fairness, though this need for perfect fairness can also make them extremely indecisive.
When they’re paired with signs that help enhance their best features while balancing out this sense of indecision, they can be their best selves.
